Bet On Next NFL Player Arrested

Whenever the NFL off-season rolls around the league and
its fans begin to hold their breath.  The reason for this being that history
has shown a pattern of bad behavior on behalf of the league’s players.  In
the past, incidents with big name stars like Michael Vick, Ricky Williams, and
just about every member of the Bengals that have either landed them in jail, or in the courtroom have made off-season drama the
rule and not the exception.

The recent arrest of Colts running back Kenton Keith and incidents involving
other NFL’ers have shown that this off-season is no
different.  This being the case fans across the country are wondering who
will be next, and what will they get in trouble
for.  Looking for answers they have been flooding the largest most
successful sportsbook on the web, BetUs, where
oddsmakers have posted odds on all things NFL player behavior.

”The NFL is part of the fabric of the lives of fans in America
and their interest in their teams and players goes far beyond the field,” said BetUs spokesman
Reed Richards.  “This is illustrated by the number of fans who come to us
looking for analysis and predictive information regarding which star or team
will be in hot water next.”

posted betting odds
for the draft.

have Brohm going second at the signal calling

One can even bet on which position teams will pick. The
Dallas Cowboys are rumored to be trying to trade up to draft Arkansas
running back Darren McFadden. Not surprisingly running back is the most likely
position they will draft first, but an interesting proposition is “any other
position” other than running back, wide receiver or cornerback at +200.

Detroit Lions are even money, followed by Chicago at +250, and Houston at +275.

Chauncey Billips, Richard Hamilton, and Tayshaun Prince, the Pistons are the better team (than
Boston) from top to bottom,” says Thomas, though conceding that Boston’s Paul
Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen are the “league’s best threesome.”

Last year’s conference titlist Cleveland is next at 9/1,
tied with Orlando, even though the
Magic finished a full seven games ahead of the Cavs in the standings.

look back no further than last year to see that LeBron James can carry the
Cavaliers, plus the blockbuster mid-season trade in which they got Ben Wallace
should pay off.”

At 25/1 Washington
is given little chance, but they at not as big of a dark horse as the Toronto
Raptors at 30/1 or the Philadelphia
76ers at 50/1. Coming up the rear are the Atlanta Hawks at 75/1.
