2018 NFL Playoff Expert Point Spread Pick, News, Notes, and Odds: The Coughlin effect on Patriots.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Postseason Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, NFL Playoffs, and MLB landscape.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a franchise on the rise. Owner Shahid Khan is of Pakistani descent and did an excellent job of pursuing the “AMERICAN DREAM.”

The Sixty-Seven-year-old Khan has bought the franchise from Wayne Weaver in 2011 and is a fan favorite after telling the faithful the team would remain in Jacksonville.

Khan got tired of ending up in the top ten of the NFL draft season after season and missing on high profile free agents such as Julius Thomas.

After the 2016-17 season, Khan made one of the best decisions as the owner of the organization by talking to ex-Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin who ran the show on the sidelines for the first eight years of franchises existence.

 

The two met, and Khan offered Coughlin a position in the front office and the decision is paying off instantly.

After Coughlin left Jacksonville in his first stint, he was hired to be the head coach of the New York Giants.

Players complained about his strict coaching techniques, but fans loved the results as the “G-MEN” won two Super Bowl title in his era, both over the Bill Belichick led New England Patriots.

Like current Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone Coughlin has ties to Syracuse University and the late Dick MacPherson.

No one knows how to exploit the weaknesses of the New England Patriots like Tom Coughlin, and you can bet he’s handed the blueprint to Marrone as he prepares the Jaguars for Sunday’s AFC title game.

In 2007 the New England Patriots finished the regular season undefeated with season finale victory over the Giants at Giants Stadium.

New York led the entire game, but a coverage mistake left Randy Moss alone for a game-winning touchdown.

However, watching the game, this sports handicapper witnessed retired defensive end Michael Strahan get constant pressure on Brady.

 

As fate would have it, the Patriots have to take on the Giants again in the 2008 Super Bowl to complete the undefeated season.

The Giants dominant front four would prevent it from happening as they pulled the upset.

In 2012 the two team met again in the SuperBowl in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, the result was the same the New York Giants came away victorious.

The blueprint stayed the same as the front four led by Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre Paul were too much for the Patriots offensive line.

Surely the Patriots coaching staff is aware of the “COUGHLIN EFFECT.” coming into the 2018 AFC Championship game.

It’s no mistake Coughlin signed defensive tackle Calais Campbell in free agency. Malik Jackson is in his second season, and both will be forces Sunday.

It will no be a surprise to see the Jacksonville Jaguars compete for the entire game and get constant pressure on Brady.

2018 NBA Expert Betting Predictions, News, and Odds: Pelicans looking like they can compete with Twin Towers.

Written and authored National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

NBA Point Spread Daily Picks will make clients massive profits and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The New Orleans Pelicans play in one of the most scenic cities in the nation and are finally turning heads in the “CRESCENT CITY.”

Make no mistake fans in “SPORTSMAN’S PARADISE” are still licking their wounds after their beloved Saints lost to the Minnesota Vikings on the last play in the 2018 divisional round.

In the 2016-17 season General Manager Dell Demps took a chance and acquired multi-talented but disgruntled Center DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings.

Many thought it would bring instant gratification and take the team to the next level, but that scenario didn’t happen.

The Pelicans missed the playoffs in the 2017 season, and the buzz surrounding Cousins intensified.

Cousins is one of five players from the University of Kentucky on the current Pelicans roster. The others are Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo, Darius Miller, and DeAndre Liggins.

 

Head Coach Alvin Gentry is in this third season on the bench in New Orleans after a stint in Phoenix where he underachieved.

This Sports Handicapper has never understood why a guy like Gentry seems to keep getting head coaching jobs; the North Carolina native does, however, recognizes the “X AND O’S” of the game.

Gentry got his first head job with the Miami Heat back in 1995. The Detroit Pistons took a chance on him and lasted for three seasons, and then the Los Angeles Clippers organization rolled the dice of Gentry.

Well, things seem to go his way at the present moment, an overtime road win over Boston shows the entire league how much talent the Pelicans have on the roster.

The question is can they keep rolling or will do what is expected, and that is beginning to go in the tank.

As of Wednesday, January 17, 2018. New Orleans is three games over .500, winning their last three both straight up and to the number.

The Pelicans are behind Houston and San Antonio in the Southwest division.

 

New Orleans is an exciting team moving forward in the 2018 season.

The team ranks near the top of the league scoring the basketball, but they must concentrate on defense to become an elite team.

At present, the Pelicans allow opponents 111.1 points per game, twenty-ninth in the “ASSOCIATION.”

Post players Anthony Davis, and DeMarcus Cousins both average over twenty-five points per contest scoring the basketball.

Point Guard Jrue Holiday is the understudy to Rajon Rondo who will be a crucial part if they want to get into the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

Former Memphis Grizzlies standout and defensive specialist Tony Allen must to his imprint on the team in the second half of the season if they want to avoid the NBA draft lottery.

All said the New Orleans Pelicans have everything going their way and if they keep playing at their current level, this team could be the surprise team in the 2018 postseason.

Bovada.LV list the 2018 New Orleans Pelicans win total at 39 And A Half Games.

2018 NCAA Basketball Betting Predictions, New, and Odds: Duke looks unbeatable with lengthy Freshman.

Written and authored College Basketball Association Expert Handicapper Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

NCAA Point Spread Expert Picks will make clients massive profits and will continue through 2018 March Madness Finals in April.

College Basketball fans have seen this before with the Duke Blue Devils basketball team. Plenty of five stars All Americans with impressive high school resumes’.

Fans pack Cameron Indoor stadium during the winter months like no other venue on the land.

However they have not tasted an NCAA Championship since the 2015 season, but from what this sports handicapper has seen, it should happen again in the 2018 March Madness Tournament.

The era of the one and done player is upon us and the days of players like former Blue Devils standout Christian Laettner staying four years are long gone.

Legendary head coach Mike Krzyzewski is in his thirty-eighth season on the bench at the Durham, North Carolina Institute.

Unlike one of his mentor Bobby Knight, Krzyzewski keeps an open mind and tells potential recruits the truth.

 

Everyone is the College Basketball landscape is aware that the Atlantic Coast Conference is one of the most competitive in the nation.

The Duke Blue Devils are charter members along with their in-state rivals North Carolina Tar Heels. Both schools compete for the best players at the prep level, but in the past few years high profile “HOOP” schools such as Louisville, and Syracuse have joined the conference.

The North Carolina Tar Heels played in the NCAA finals the past two season while Duke got sent packing early in the tournament.

Watching, the 2018 Blue Devils in their most recent game a comeback win over Miami, Florida on the road.

Four Freshmen who are five-star recruits and a tough-minded senior by the name of Grayson Allen will probably have the Blue Devils cut the nets down in the spring of 2018.

Duke is fifth in the last NCAA Basketball pools behind number-one Villanova; second-ranked Virginia who is in the ACC, three Purdue, and number four Oklahoma who has the most exciting player in College Basketball.

 

However, the 2018 Duke Blue Devils have the most talent of any team in the NCAA Basketball landscape.

Their four top freshmen will all be lottery picks in this years NBA draft. Allen is also going to make a significant pro player with his toughness and ability to shoot, and play defense.

Forward Marvin Bagley III is the teams leading scorer and already has an NBA body.

Point Guard Trevon Duval also averages double figures scoring the basketball but is overshadowed by Allen at the position.

Gary Trent Jr’s dad made a name for himself in the NBA and NCAA Basketball “aka” the SHAQ OF THE MAC” while at Ohio University. The younger Trent is going to be an instant star due to his ability to hit the three-point shot.

Wendell Carter Jr. already has an NBA body and is a “BEAST” around the bucket.

This Sports Handicapper has never seen a College Basketball team with the length of the 2018 Duke Blue Devils, and they are just learning how to compete at this level.

Watch out NCAA Basketball the Blue Devils are putting everyone on notice.

The Betting Experts at Charliessports.com has the best sports betting predictions.

Bovada.Lv has Duke at 12 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA Basketball March Madness Championship.

Winning AFC Playoff Divisional (Side and Total) ATS Picks, News, and Odds: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Postseason Betting Picks are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the annual Super Bowl spectacle in February of 2018.

The (11-6) and number three-seed Jacksonville Jaguars of the American Football Conference South division will be in the “STEEL CITY” for their divisional round matchup.

Jacksonville Jaguars play’s the (13-3) and second seed Pittsburgh Steelers of the AFC North in 2018 NFL Playoff action.

Game time is 1:05 PM EST on Sunday, January 14, 2018. The NBC Television Network will broadcast the game.

The teams will play at Heinz Field on the banks of the Three Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The American Football Conference experts at Charliessports.com will pound the board this weekend.

Jacksonville won the AFC South and had already beaten Pittsburgh in the same venue as Saturday’s divisional round game.

Pittsburgh got a bit of inspiration with Ryan Shazier coming to the practice facility this past week.

The Opening Betting line has the Jacksonville Jaguars as a seven and a half point road underdog against the spread. The betting odds total is forty-one points for Sunday’s game.

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the divisional round after beating Buffalo last Sunday in the wildcard round of the 2018 NFL playoffs.

Owner Shahid Khan brought in the person who knows the NFL landscape better than most.

Tom Coughlin is now in charge of football operations in North Florida, and his first season now gives hope to the fans.

Head Coach Doug Marrone is on the same page as Coughlin with establishing a presence on the defensive and offensive fronts.

Starting quarterback Blake Bortles now has people in his corner. Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett instills a mindset of playing tough along the front and rookie Running Back Leonard Fournette fits the system like a glove.

However, it’s the Jaguars defense that is the strength of the team. Defensive Tackle Calais Campbell is playing at an elite level as is Malik Jackson.

Linebacker Paul Posluszny is the leader of the unit but is questionable for Sunday’s game which will take place about a half an hour from his hometown.

Jacksonville must hit a big play in the passing game to advance.

Bovada.Lv has the Jacksonville Jaguars at 20 to 1 to win the 2018 Super Bowl.
The 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty incentive Sunday with disappointments the past three or four years in the playoffs.

Fans in Western Pennsylvania want another shot at the New England Patriots.

All Pro wideout Antonio Brown returns to the lineup but will have his hands full with Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Head Coach Mike Tomlin and offensive coordinator Todd Haley trusts the nucleus of the unit led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Running Back Le’Veon Bell, and Brown.

Jacksonville got five interceptions the last time the teams met in the 2017 regular season.

The Steelers defense is not the “STEEL CURTAIN” of the 1970’s, but they have talent in the front seven.

Cornerback Artie Burns and Safety Sean Davis are future All-Pro candidates; they will be able to handle the Jaguars receivers.

The key to a Jacksonville victory is for Fournett to gain one hundred yards on the ground.

Bovada. Lv, list the 2017-18 Pittsburgh Steelers at 9 to 2 to win the Super Bowl.

2018 NFL Playoffs Divisional Picks, News, and Odds: Week-Two of Postseason could bring surprises.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Weekly ATS Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, NFL Playoffs, and MLB landscape.

What a wildcard weekend it was last Saturday and Sunday.

It was especially intriguing for Point Spread Bettors as the “DOGS WERE BARKING” all four underdogs covered the point spread with three of the four-game staying under the betting odds total.

Both the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams hosted wildcard games, and neither will be playing in the divisional round.

Tennessee held Kansas City scoreless in the second half after falling behind early in the game while the Rams got hit in the mouth form the opening kickoff until the final whistle.

Sunday’s action was just the opposites both home teams held serve. Jacksonville beat the Buffalo Bills in an ugly defensive slugfest.

The New Orleans Saints took care of NFC South rivals Carolina in somewhat of a shootout, it was the third time New Orleans beat Carolina this season.

 

Saturday, January 13th is right around the corner, and the action gets started with the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the Atlanta Falcons, and the betting line is throwing bettors for a loop.

However, the sports handicapping experts at Charliessports.com understands with the absence of Carson Wentz will probably make a difference in the game.

Fans in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE” will do everything in their power to root the Eagles to victory.

Philadelphia is a tough place for a visiting team in the playoffs.

The upstart Tennessee Titans will travel to the “BAY STATE” for their second-round matchup with the mighty New England Patriots.

Tennessee has nothing to lose they are embracing a chance to end the “DYNASTY.” New England has some turmoil or for lack of a better term a power struggle within the ranks.

Patriots fans have seen this before, but with a forty-year-old signal caller and a head coach who is the longest-tenured coach in the league, ego’s could be getting in the way.

 

Sunday, January 14th the actions begins early with Jacksonville visiting Pittsburgh.

The Jaguars already beat the Steelers at the same venue earlier this season but could it happen again?

According to the Jaguars brass, the team is up for the challenge.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can’t usually find his grove this time of the year, and he will have a healthy Antonio Brown.

Fans in the “STEEL CITY” will be out in full force, what makes this one intriguing is the Jaguars have the talent to compete.

The Minnesota Vikings will host New Orleans in the final game of the divisional weekend.

Just like the first game, these two teams have already met this season with Vikings coming away victorious.

There is plenty of incentive for the Minnesota Vikings; they could be the first team in NFL History to play a Super Bowl at their home stadium.

New Orleans is a different team than they were earlier in the season.

Sunday, January 7th, 2018 the Michigan State Spartans fell to the unranked Ohio State Buckeyes losing their number-one ranking.

Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo understands the mindset of amateur athletes, especially in conference play where scoring can be at a minimum.

Opposing venues all over the nation are a terrible place to compete; it’s what makes College Basketball what it is.

Michigan State is still one of the favorites to reach the 2018 March Madness Final Four.

 

Who says the one and done environment is ruining College Basketball? There is still plenty of raw talent around and big-time conferences, as well as the mid-major, are proving experts wrong on a daily basis.

Head Coach John Calipari will have the team peaking by March, and they don’t have a clear-cut first-round draft pick ready to depart for the riches of the NBA.

It could turn out to be a good thing for the Wildcats as well as the College Basketball landscape.
