NFL Investigating Preseason Helmet-swinging Incident
2013-08-20

In the video,Texans defensive end Antonio Smith gets into a scuffle with Miami offensive lineman Richie Incognito, eventually ripping off his helmet and swinging it at him, narrowly missing Incognito's head in the process.
No penalty was called on the play.
Miami head coach Joe Philbin has already contacted the league about a possible fine and/or suspension.
The NFL could fine Smith as the helmet cannot be used as a weapon, by rule.
And there is history between the two: last season, Smith was fined $21,000 by the NFL - reduced to $11,000 after an appeal - for kicking Incognito while he was on the ground.

Steelers vs. Bucs Preview, Bookies not expecting many points
2010-09-24

Two unlikely unbeatens meet up in Tampa Bay on Sunday; the winner leaves with a 3-0 record. The Steelers vs. Buccaneers pointspread is currently Pittsburgh -2.5 at Sportsbook.com.

Despite their 2-0 start which includes two outright underdog victories, the Steelers have yet to score an offensive touchdown in regulation. But their opportunistic defense has already forced eight turnovers, including seven in last week’s win at Tennessee. Tampa Bay has used a similar aggressive defense to force six turnovers and hold its opponents to 21 total points in two wins over Cleveland and Carolina. Thanks to these two swarming defenses, the Steelers vs. Bucs over/under is at an extremely low 33 points.

With Ben Roethlisberger still suspended and an injury to Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch got plenty of PT last Sunday. Batch is 3-1 SU and ATS in four career starts for Pittsburgh, but he had a dismal performance last week (5-for-11 for 25 yards with two fumbles). The Steelers will once again rely on the legs of Rashard Mendenhall to move the football. Mendenhall rumbled for 120 yards Week 1 against Atlanta, but was held to 69 yards on 23 carries at Tennessee. WR Hines Ward has been hobbled by a calf injury and only had one catch against the Titans, but he is expected to play this Sunday.

Tampa Bay ranks 24th in the NFL with 280.5 YPG, and the Bucs offense will be less than 100 percent due to some key injuries. RB Cadillac Williams is nursing a hamstring injury, backup RB Kareem Huggins missed last week’s game due to a groin injury and TE Kellen Winslow has missed practice time this week because of a knee injury. All three are expected to play, but that may not be enough for QB Josh Freeman to gain yardage against a stellar Pittsburgh defense that has allowed just 266.5 YPG and 20 total points this year.

These teams have met just three times in the past 10 years (2001, 2002, 2006) but all three have been similar results with the Steelers going 3-0 SU, ATS and UNDER. However, this betting trend shows that Pittsburgh’s turnover luck is not likely to hold up, making Tampa Bay the pick for Sunday:

Play Against - Favorites (PITTSBURGH) - after a game where they forced 4 or more turnovers against opponent after a game where they committed no turnovers. (103-59 since 1983.) (63.6%, +38.1 units. Rating = 2*).

Check Sportsbook.com’s betting guides for more betting tips on this weekend’s football betting board.

After crunching some more stats, it appears that the ‘under’ is also a good bet:

TAMPA BAY is 48-23 UNDER (+22.7 Units) after a win by 10 or more points since 1992. (Rating = 2*).

Can the Saints Repeat as Super Bowl Champions in 2010?
2010-06-18

The Saints can and they should make another run at a Super Bowl win, but it will not be easy by any means. And since when has anything been easy in the NFL? Never that's when. The Saints didn't lose too much in free agency from the 2009 season, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem, and the NFL betting agrees.


As far as gaining a free agent, the Saints get former Chicago Bears defensive end Alex Brown. He is past his prime but he still can play and provide pass rush for the Saints in 2010. Brown, defensive back Leigh Torrence, and fellow defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson will do their part to help the Saints defense. Neither one of their free agent pickups are stars but they can help the Saints in their own ways.


The Saints ranked 25th in total defense in 2009 and they ranked 20th or below in all the most vital defensive categories. So those aforementioned defensive free agents and the incumbent defensive players on the Saints have to either play up to their abilities or above their heads for the Saints to get back to the promise land. Their defense has nowhere to go but up, because their offense can only cover up the defense's shortcomings for so long like they did in 2009.     


Drew Brees is a bonafied star at quarterback with his accuracy, consistency, and smarts. The reigning Super Bowl XLIV MVP has the competitiveness and the smarts to not be one of those players who rests on his laurels. Brees will give everything he has and more to get to Super Bowl XLV and win it. Plus Brees has talent up the ying-yang at receiver at his disposal.. All these stretch the defense receivers and tight ends he has to work with, has to make any quarterback get giddy.


The Saints have a good enough defense (but they need improvement) to help the offense make it seem like they don't have to go at it alone. The most talented part of the Saints defense is the defensive line. But that is not to say that it is the best part of their defense, because the linebackers are the most productive portion of their defense. Defensive tackles Remi Ayodele and Sedrick Ellis will have been together on the interior of the defensive line for three years when the 2010 season rolls around. Their main functions are to keep offensive linemen off of inside linebackers Jonathan Vilma (starter) and alternates Anthony Waters and Marvin Mitchell, as well as provide pass rush and defend the run. The first seven players of the Saints defense (defensive line and linebackers) are the most vital part of their defense bar none. Because if they don't provide pressure and defend the run then the sort of underachieving secondary won't eat. Free Safety Darren Sharper is old as dirt and he can only do so much, although he still can play and he is very effective (refer to 2009 game film).


This has got to be the season Reggie Bush stands up and uses the prodigious gifts that he was born. Okay so he is not a durable or every down back. So what. But an average of 4 touchdowns on the ground and 2 receiving per year since 2006, isn't going to cut it any more. The Saints have seven running backs on their current roster as of this writing, and three of them are fullbacks or are strictly around for their blocking and bulk size. So Bush has no excuse as far as worrying about some other back cutting into his carries, except for maybe bigger and physical back Pierre Thomas who gained 793 yards on the ground in 2009 which led the team. Luckily in 2009 the Saints running game was good enough to take pressure off the passing game, which all the NFL betting community are keeping a close eye on.


The Saints are good to go on offense and defense (especially offense) to gain another Super Bowl ring, but as any former Super Bowl winner will say, "It's hard to repeat." The Saints have a target on their back for the 2010 season like they have never had before in from 1967-2008 or 42 years of service.

NFL: MINNESOTA at ARIZONA (8:15 PM ET, NBC)
2009-12-04

Minnesota isn’t one of the NFL unbeaten teams after 11 games, but it very well could be the league’s best team. After a dominant 3-game homestand, the 10-1 Vikings will hit the road for a trip to Arizona. They are a field goal favorite and the chances of winning hinge much on the status of Cardinals’ QB Kurt Warner, who missed last game with concussion symptoms. He was listed as probable at last check and could make Arizona a worthy home dog selection at Sportsbook.com.

The Cardinals come off a heartbreaking last-second loss to the Titans, but still remain in control of the NFC West Division at 7-4. Minnesota doesn’t figure to be a good matchup for any team right now, but in terms of trends, the Cardinals are 12-1 ATS vs. teams averaging >=7 yards per pass attempt, and 13-5 ATS against teams with a winning record under Ken Whisenhunt. However, the Vikings have taken seven of the L8 head-to-head matchups outright and are 6-2 ATS in that span. They are 4-1 SU & ATS in road games in ’09, winning by 11.6 PPG.

The switch from a late afternoon start to Sunday night shows the importance this game has as a preview to a possible playoff matchup down the road. Minnesota has utilized its final piece of the puzzle—Brett Favre—to post an impressive 10-1 record, while Arizona has overcome the moniker of a “one-hit wonder” to stay atop the NFC West and get back to the postseason.

The two teams met in the desert late last season, a game in which the Vikings dominated in a 35-14 stomping of the then-sagging Cardinals. It was a game that saw the victors score 21 points in the first quarter alone as well as then-starter Tarvaris Jackson tossing four touchdown passes. Arizona also had few answers for Adrian Peterson’s 165 rushing yards, while the Minnesota stop unit held superstar wideout Larry Fitzgerald to only five catches for 52 yards.

Like 2008, the Cardinals have dabbled with bouts of inconsistency, especially at home, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt has kept the team on track when things look like they could derail.

Quarterback Kurt Warner (concussion) sat out last week’s tough 20-17 loss at Tennessee, and Arizona is going to need Warner to stay healthy to go anywhere in January, especially since backup Matt Leinart has struggled. The problem for the Cardinals has been their play at home, where three losses were accumulated in the first half of the season.

Aside from the hiccup in Pittsburgh, the Vikings have steamrolled every foe that has come their way and Favre’s ability to enhance the passing game has made head coach Brad Childress’ team awfully tough to stop. The savvy veteran has made the likes of Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian and Visanthe Shiancoe look like All-Pros, while rookie Percy Harvin added another killer dimension on third downs as well as the return game.
Defensively, the matchup between the Arizona air attack and Minnesota’s stellar pass defense should be a sight to behold. The Vikings can get to the passer with Jared Allen and Kevin Williams, meaning Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin must get open in a hurry. Luckily, Childress will have the services of Antoine Winfield in the secondary for the first time in five games. This is vital since the Cardinals also like to use wideout Steve Breaston.

PREDICTION: It will interesting to see if Arizona can shake off its home woes for a worthy opponent like Minnesota, which came in here last year and simply dominated from the opening kick. It’ll be closer this time, but the Vikings still boast too much talent. MINNESOTA 30, ARIZONA 24
