Pac-10 Preview From Bodog Sportsbook

Oh baby, Bodog has the college football lines up for week one. They also preview the Pac-10.

Oregon is the favorite on NCAA football odds in the Pac-10 this season. Can USC get back on track after losing head coach Pete Carroll to the NFL? This is our Pac-10 Conference overview.

The Ducks have 5/2 odds to earn the Pac-10 title. Oregon is loaded on offense, particularly with an impressive offensive line, but the defense leaves a bit to be desired. And while USC couldn’t prevent Carroll from leaving, it should be able to prevent offenses from moving the ball; the Trojans (8/1 Pac-10 odds) might have the best “D” in the conference.

Oregon State is also expected to contend with 3/1 odds to win the Pac-10. An electric running game should power the Beavers this season. The Washington Huskies, meanwhile, are interesting value picks with 9/2 odds and potential NFL star Jake Locker back under center.

Get your NCAA Football Odds in the Bodog Sportsbook! Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy’s expert take: Oregon, Southern Cal, Oregon State, Arizona, and Stanford in that order, are the powerhouses. Chic team Washington is not there yet.

US Open 2010 Odds

It’s the start of the US Open tennis, the Big Bang Theory shows that sports handicapping has evolved to new levels never before approached.

David Nalbandian, Andy Murray, and Andy Roddick top favorites in men’s tennis.

Courtesy of OddsShark.com: Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Jays hit the road for a series against the Rays, the Phillies send their ace to the mound against the Dodgers, and the U.S. Open begins.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Monday offers up the White Sox at Cleveland, Oakland at the Yankees, Texas at Kansas City, the Angels at Seattle, and Toronto at Tampa Bay. Brett Cecil (11-6, 3.80 ERA) will take on Wade Davis (10-9, 4.41 ERA) in that Jays/Rays matchup. Lefthander Cecil beat Tampa Bay back on August 6, giving up just one run on four hits over his seven innings of work and fanning nine. Righthander Davis is coming off a win over the Angels in which he surrendered two runs on six hits in his 5 1-3 innings of work and struck out five. Tampa is 6-1 in Davis’ last seven starts.

Over in the National League on Monday it’s then Washington at Florida, Milwaukee at Cincinnati, the Mets at Atlanta, Pittsburgh at the Cubs, St. Louis at Houston, San Diego at Arizona, Colorado at San Francisco, and Philadelphia at the Dodgers. Roy Halladay (16-9, 2.22 ERA) is slated to get the ball for the Phillies in that last contest, while Los Angeles counters with Hiroki Kuroda (9-11, 3.56 ERA). Righthander Halladay was tagged with a loss by the Astros last time out, giving up three runs on six hits over seven innings to stop his six-game winning streak. Righthander Kuroda is coming off a win over the Brewers in which he allowed four runs on seven hits over his seven innings.

Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Preview

Which team earns the right to play the Texas Longhorns or Oklahoma Sooners in the final year of the Big 12 a we know it? Bodog previews the best team in the Big 12.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have 15/1 odds to win the National Championship, meaning their final year in the Big 12 could be a big one. They’re next on our college football preview.

Bo Pelini’s resurrection of Nebraska (2/1 Big 12 odds) has made former coach Bill Callaghan look like a beer league softball coach. The Cornhuskers have gone from a joke to a legitimate title threat. Ten starters return on offense this year, though quarterback is admittedly shaky. Zac Lee will start the season under center, but he’ll be looking over his shoulder at sophomore Cody Green.

Nebraska will employ a quirky 4-2-5 defensive scheme geared to stopping the pass. The “D” lost some key players to graduation and the draft, none more important than defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. There should be enough replacement parts to keep the good times rolling, though.

Get your NCAA Football Odds in the Bodog Sportsbook! Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy’s expert take: Luckily in the inferior division of the Big 12, the Cornhuskers will waltz to the Big 12 Championship game against either Texas or Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Sooners Football Preview

Tim Bradford is in the NFL, but now it’s time to preview his Oklahoma Sooners.

The Oklahoma Sooners are next in line for today’s college football preview. They’re national title contenders (15/2 BCS Championship odds) and have a great shot to win the Big 12 South (20/23 odds).

The Sooners have to be feeling less appreciated than a housewife who normally cooks, cleans, and takes care of business in the bedroom, but forgot to pick up the dry cleaning once. Despite years of dominance, fans are restless after an eight-win season.

The defense should dominate. Oklahoma has few holes, save for a soft spot up the middle since tackle Gerald McCoy fled to the NFL. The linebackers are led by Travis Lewis, one of the best in the country, and safety Quinten Carter heads a good secondary.

Oklahoma can run the football behind five great linemen. DeMarco Murray is an explosive threat at tailback. Landry Jones should be better after filling in for the injured Sam Bradford last season.

Get your NCAA Football Odds in the Bodog Sportsbook! Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy’s expert take: Yet again, it comes down to Texas and Oklahoma. The Horns will hook ‘em as Oklahoma is a strong second best in the Big 12 South.

NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Ohio State Buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeyes are the second most talented team in the nation behind Alabama. Bodog previews the Buckeyes year.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are almost always in the hunt, but they look like legit BCS Championship contenders this year (5/1 odds). Ohio State is next in today’s college football preview.

The Buckeyes look like a shoe-in to win the Big Ten with 2/5 odds. With 16 starters returning, they’re more loaded than Bill Gates. The defense, among the nation’s best in 2009, has a few question marks but returns seven starters. A greater pass rush will be key to going the distance this year. Overall, it’s somewhat of a no-name—but effective—unit.

If Terrell Pryor can be a little more accurate, the offense could go through the roof. Pryor completed 57 percent of his passes last year; anything north of 60 would be fantastic, especially considering he does so much work with his legs. The offensive line looks downright nasty with four starters returning.

Get your NCAA Football Odds in the Bodog Sportsbook! Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy’s expert take: The Buckeyes are easily the best team in the Big 10. All 14 of our projections have them winning the conference.

Sirius/XM Radio Fantasy Football Channel

SIRIUS NFL Radio and XM Radio will now have fantasy football channel which will be used by gamblers for information as well. “It will be another part of our arsenal,” says Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy of GodsTips. No handicapper has ever dominated any sport—decade after decade—the way GodsTips has the NFL going back to our scorephone days.

BallHype.com, DailyRadar.com Gone

The fact that BallHype.com, part of the DailyRadar.com network, has gone under does leave a void.  Sports betting articles will be on OffshoreInsiders.com, while fantasy football rankings and NFL draft guide to win fantasy football leagues are also up.

We will miss Ball Hype, but just like SportsCrew.com going under or Brandon Lang and Matt Rivers, the winningest college football handicapper in history, the void has been filled.

Steelers vs. Broncos

An NFL betting odds alert has just been issued on the battle between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.  Yes the Emmy Awards odds 2010 are up, but it’s about Sunday night football.

Currently the best available line on the underdog is at BetUs where Denver is +2.5.

Meanwhile, the best shop to bet the favorite Just Bet Sportsbook where Pittsburgh is -1.5 -120. The total ranges from 37-37.5.

Pittsburgh is 2-0 straight up in NFLX play straight up, while the Broncos are 0-2. For Denver, first-round wideout Demaryius Thomas (foot) and pass rusher Elvis Dumervil (pectoral). The likes of running back Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and quarterback Tim Tebow are out.

It appears that Ben Roethlisberger will start for Pittsburgh and be followed by Byron Leftwich and Dennis Dixon.

One of the reasons for this alert is that the power ratings for the NFL say that Denver is -1, giving the Broncos a power line edge.

This game is being broadcast on Fox. For game tickets or to listen to the satellite radio broadcast, check out the OffshoreInsiders.com store. Live streaming TV of the contest is also available.

Sunday is on the Phillies and Padres under the seven at PETCO Park.

I am not really a totals guy but every now and then I see something that I like and I pounce. This isn’t a paid play so I’m not really pouncing all that hard but going over 7 runs today in this pitcher’s paradise of a ballpark with two semi stud pitchers just doesn’t seem very possible.

How can one of these teams score 5 runs? That’s what it would take to lose and I just cannot see that happening, no how no way. For one, the Phillies have not hit a lick for a few weeks now and the Padres aren’t yet a juggernaut even with that gaudy record. Throw these two clubs in vast PETCO and put two really tough southpaws on the hill in Cole Hamels and Clayton Richard and we are more than likely looking at a well pitched, fast paced game that ends in the neighborhood of 2-1 or 3-2.

In the first two games of the series both squads were offensively challenged and to believe that anything will be different here just does not make much sense. There is talent on the field with Utley, Howard, Gonzalez and a few others but those three stars all bat from the left side and pretty much everything in this thing is screaming under to me.

The pick: San Diego under 7 at 5 Dimes

For more information: The last few days have been terrible. I can’t make excuses and I won’t make excuses. Every now and then even the best fail at what they dol in every walk of life but this is exactly the point when I pick myself up and prove how I am the best there is in this industry. I am well up and I mean well up for the year and there is a reason for that.
