Betting tips on the NFL season

As with most other sports, fans of the NFL are way too fanatical for the thought of waiting until nearer the start of the season to start speculating about how teams will do, to even enter their minds. Indeed the dust had barely settled on the Ravens’ Super Bowl triumph before thoughts started to turn to the next season, and this is probably most true of those NFL fans who like to bet on it. One thing that can be noted from the odds released by the bookies for the pre-season is that the Ravens are not among the favorites to win either the AFC or the Super Bowl this season.

It’s true that, with odds of around 9/1 for the former, at most sports betting sites and 22/1 for the latter they are hardly outsiders either – but given their performance against the 49ers in that final, it is still a surprise. Partly these longer odds are a reflection of the loss of senior players like Ed Reed and Ray Lewis, and partly a reflection of their tough schedule. The team they defeated in that final – the 49ers – are highly rated by the bookmakers again this time, with odds of just 8/1 for the Super Bowl, despite the departure of safety Dashon Goldson, as they have strengthened wisely. However the best tip may be to wait and see how teams perform once the season has started, and while you wait, you can try online us slots to keep you busy.

Particularly as you can now get casino games based around the NFL, with one of the most popular being the slots game $5 Million Touchdown. One reason for the popularity of this game is the fact that it isn’t called $5 Million Touchdown for nothing – that’s the size of the top jackpot. However the game bonuses requiring you to pass from player to player in an attempt to score a touchdown is another reason, especially given the high quality of the video graphics involved. Furthermore, with the presence of a wild symbol (the referee) on the NFL-related reels, you have a brilliant chance of winning something – even if you don’t scoop that amazing maximum jackpot.

Our Bengals Blog has a new home

Our Cincinnati Bengals blog has a new home. We are excited to officially merge with Team-Superstore.com today. Click here for our new Bengals Blog Home Page.

The Bengals had the most cap space in the NFL this off-season, but failed to add any major impact players. This is not a bad thing for a young, improving team. The Bengals focused on re-signing key players such as; Rey Maualuga and Micheal Johnson, while they watched the Ravens and Steelers lose key players. Behind Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Geno Atkins, the Bengals look poised to make a run at the AFC North Title.

AJ Green- Elite?

Another great game from A.J. Green really puts him in the category of elite receivers. Many were wondering if there would be a sophomore slump this year. Both him and Dalton seem to be shying away from that stereotype.

6-10

The Bengals were 9-7 last year and will go 6-10 this year. Last year was a fluke, much like the Browns a few years back.

Ego + Ego = Wins?

The Bengals have recently signed the prima dona, past his prime, headcase of a receiver in Terrell Owens to pit him next to his clone, Chad Joh… I mean Ochocinco. A lot of people have heralded this tandem to be the best one-two receiver punch in the NFL. That seems to be a bold statement considering Owens’ lack of production as a Buffalo Bill. Maybe he just needed a quality quarterback to jump start him. That is certainly what he’ll get here. Carson Palmer knows a thing or two about playing football. He should be able to dole out enough balls to keep both of these guys happy.

Running back Cedric Benson was a pleasant surprise last year. It is going to be interesting to see how he plays this year. They will need him to produce when Chad and T.O. are being covered and not producing.

The Bengals have a good chance of winning the division. The Ravens are the team that stands in the way, but don’t be surprised if the Bengals pull it off. In the end, I believe they finish the year at 10-6 once more.

The Bengals Will Be A Wild Card Team

The AFC North is going to be a tough division this season. The Bengals and Ravens are both expected to have great teams. The Steelers are kind of up in the air and the Browns have improved a little as well. Who will finish at the top of the division? Read on to find out.

2. Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals bounced back last season and made it to the wild card round of the playoffs only to lose to the Jets. The Bengals added Terrell Owens to their roster this season to help them improve and go further into the playoffs. Carson Palmer has a great arm and he will be able to show it off this season with two receivers that can certainly stretch the field. Chad Ochocinco and Owens may be the best one-two punch at the wide receiver position this season. This is the Bengals year to make a run for the Super Bowl. The reason, Ochocinco and Owens aren’t getting any younger. As the years go by these guys are going to start to decline. Owens is 36-years-old, but he has the body of a 30-year-old, but who knows how long his legs will last? Ochocinco is 32 and should have his speed for the next two years at least. Cedric Benson will give the receiving corp. a break. Benson had a breakout season last year, rushing for over 1,200 yards and averaging 4.1 yards per carry. If Benson has the same sort of year as last season the Bengals offense will be scary.
The Bengals offense will have to be scary good because their defense is just middle of the line. The two biggest standouts on the defense is cornerbacks Jonathan Joseph and Leon Hall. Hall and Joseph each had six interceptions last season. Other than the corners, the rest of the defense is just so-so. Saying all of this, I think the Bengals are more talented than last season, but I think they will be one game worse because of their tough schedule. The Bengals should finish at 9-7.

Zimmer says he believes in Pacman

Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones reportedly is close to a deal to play for the Cincinnati Bengals this season. The team’s defensive coordinator said he doesn’t believe Jones will be a distraction for the defending AFC North champions.

A league source told the NFL Network that one of Jones’ representatives, Ray Savage, had several conversations with the Bengals during the cornerback’s visit with Cincinnati on Tuesday, and the sides have the nucleus of a multiyear deal in place.

Savage and the Bengals expect to put the details to paper this week, according to the NFL Network, and Jones should join the team’s offseason program Monday.

A contract hasn’t been signed as of Thursday, however. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Jones and the Bengals are still negotiating performance incentives and conduct clauses in the contract.

Owens meeting with Bengals

Terrell Owens headed to Cincinnati on Tuesday to see if the Bengals are interested in adding him to their stalled-out passing game.

Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been lobbying for the Bengals to sign Owens since the end of last season, when the Bengals’ passing game lacked a deep threat.

The newspaper reported that Owens had dinner with the coaching staff Tuesday night and would visit the Bengals offices on Wednesday.

Owens told WKRC-TV in Cincinnati that he would welcome playing with Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer.

The 36-year-old had tweeted earlier in the day that he was on his way to Cincinnati from Los Angeles.

“En route [at] Natti land!!” Owens tweeted. “i’ll let u guys know how the mtg went! Cn’t go 2 bad considering the pursuit of tht Lombardi shiny thing!!”

Palmer-to-Ochocinco connection helps Bengals clinch North title

The head coach was dry as he ran off the field after clinching a title — no celebratory sideline dousing. Players’ eyes were dry, too — all the tears had been wrung out.

In their finest moment, the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t act like champions. Maybe it was the ugly way they won. Maybe those tearful practices and wrenching eulogies had something to do with it as well.

Either way, they were in the playoffs.

Carson Palmer’s touchdown pass to Chad Ochocinco completed a 98-yard drive in the closing minutes Sunday, sending Cincinnati to a 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs that clinched the AFC North title five days after the Bengals buried teammate Chris Henry.

They wore the receiver’s No. 15 on their helmets and their hearts.

“I’m not jumping for joy or glee, just thinking about 15 once that clock hits zero,” Ochocinco said. “That was everybody’s mindset, to go out and win this one for him.”

The Bengals (10-5) reached the playoffs for only the second time in the past 19 years after dealing with Henry’s death. His wooden locker stall still has his shoulder pads resting on the top shelf, an assortment of shoes on the bottom rack and his helmet hanging from the side — almost as though he would show up at any moment and suit up.
