The NFL, Breast Cancer, Four Inch Heels, and Pink Boas

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the NFL has taken up the mantle of this cause. For three weeks now players have been accessorized with pink trim on their shoes and chinstraps, pink towels, and pink wrist bands. The pink breast cancer ribbon is splashed on almost everything. I don’t know what to make of all this pink.

Sports Betting Is An Investment

Most people think that sports betting is about finding ‘sure things,’ but in reality such ‘locks’ are nothing more than gamblers’ fancy. Just as in real estate, currency, stocks, or any other speculative market, ‘sure things’ simply do not exist. As a professional sports bettor, my goal is to find and exploit many small edges over a long period of time to earn a compounding return. Winning 56% of games is very significant, and with very conservative bet sizing, you can grow your return very quickly. Investing $10,000 into the stock market for a year and earning a 10% return is considered a great investment – but over the past 10 years I have averaged a 73.0% return each year on my NFL, NBA and NCAA football and basketball picks. (With 10% juice already factored in).

Matt Leinart: Three Things That Could Have Saved His Career

It was 2006, and life was easy for former USC quarterback Matt Leinart. He was a Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion, as well as the No. 10 selection in the NFL Draft.

Detroit Lions Have Teeth

If you are a fan of professional football you have to be rooting-at least a little bit-for the Detroit Lions. The NFC North team has been the NFL’s poster child for futility over the past two decades. Their last playoff appearance was in 1999.

Vick-Tory for the Eagles Will Ignite Controversy

The Kevin Kolb Era got off to a rocky start in Philadelphia last week when the Eagles’ newly-minted starter suffered a concussion against the Green Bay Packers. Michael Vick played ably in relief, turning a potential blowout into a respectable contest, but the Eagles lost, 27-20. Vick’s solid play-and his intimation that he could have pulled off the victory had he been on the field for a full four quarters-sparked a week-long debate about the starting QB position in Philly.
