In 2014 Terry and Kim Pegula were looked upon as saviors in Western New York by not only purchasing the Buffalo Bills but also promised to keep them at New Era Field formerly known as Ralph Wilson Stadium in suburban Orchard Park. The husband and wife also predicted their Bills would field a competitive team which they delivered resulting in a wildcard berth last season with a 9-7 record, but they had to watch and wait as the Cincinnati Bengals scored a last-second touchdown at Baltimore. However, it was short-lived as they went down 10-3 at Jacksonville, which ultimately ended the Tyrod Taylor era. General Manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean Sean McDermott installed a new culture in their initial season which left a sour taste in the mouths of several veterans which were shortly cut or traded which caught the attention of players. Two first-round draft picks in 2018 including quarterback Josh Allen are going to be the cornerstones to success but his rookie playing time will depend on how quickly he grasps their offensive concept.

Buffalo hired Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Brian Daboll with expectations of making the playoffs again . Although Allen is the future signal caller veteran backup AJ McCarron was signed as a free agent who’ll probably get the majority of snaps in training camp. Nathan Peterman’s first career start in 2017 resulted in five interceptions, but coaches insist he’ll be given an opportunity to compete for the starting job. The bright spot in the twenty-ninth ranked unit was a rushing attack that was sixth in the league averaging (126.1) yards per contest which were mostly due to the skills of running back LeSean McCoy (1,138) yards. To keep the aging McCoy fresh, they brought in Chris Ivory from Jacksonville who’s a bigger back and will lessen the hits taken by the guy they call Shady McCoy. Tight end Charles Clay needs wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones to become more reliable; Jones had just (360) yards as a rookie. Buffalo will also be without the services of former All-Pro Center Eric Wood who along with guard Richie Incognito retired. Massive offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson who hasn’t been the same since being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease was sent to Houston. If McDermott can continue to keep players buying into his zero-tolerance rule and get a maximum effort of each snap by exceeding their talent level the Bills offense will be alright.

Statistics are over-rated when it comes to the Buffalo Bills defense they allowed (22.6) points per game which were eighteenth in the NFL, but a rotation on the defensive line and the addition of former Carolina Panthers starter Star Lotulelei will pay dividends. Kyle Williams is the leader of a young and talented front four. Linebackers Preston Brown is now in Cincinnati while his sidekick Lorenzo Alexander is still playing at an elite level at thirty-four years old. Former Virginia Tech standout Tremaine Edmunds as drafted nine picks behind Josh Allen in round one and McDermott expects him to have an immediate impact playing alongside Alexander. Second-year cornerback Tre’Davious White turned heads throughout the league as a rookie: he along with former Colts standout Vontae Davis could be the best tandem in the AFC East. Safety Micah Hyde will team with Jordan Poyer, and both can play coverage as well as support making the Bills secondary elite. The key to success for the Bills defense is to stop the run consistently. Bovada.Lv, list the Buffalo Bills at +1,00 to win the 2018-19 AFC East Crown.

The fourth coach in a decade has Chicago Bears faithful wondering about stability at the top.

Written by National Football League Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NFL ATS Betting Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. Forty-year-old Matt Nagy takes over for John Fox in the Windy City as head coach of Chicago’s NFL Bears. General Manager Ryan Pace is looking to strike gold after three dismal season’s under his tool edge which unless they make a playoff run will be his swan song. The McCaskey Family is in charge of an organization who hasn’t had a winning season since 2012 and fans are getting restless. This Sports Handicapper remembers in 2010 when they hosted Green Bay in the NFC title game, then quarterback Jay Cutler refused to renter the game after suffering a knee injury and it seems they have never recovered from that dreadful January Sunday. The General Manager is intrigued by the enthusiasm of a youthful Nagy to whom he compares to Kyle Shanahan. The time is now in a division with Minnesota, Green Bay, and Detroit: its playoffs or bust for Pace and Nagy. One thing is for sure fans will still flock to Soldier Field on the city’s South Side for tailgating and hopefully competitive football in the 2018-19 season.

Mark Helfrich takes on the identity of Nagy, but he’s at least had experience serving as the Oregon Ducks head coach from 2013-16. The NFL is a different game altogether which could help a staff that has nothing to lose. Second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (2,193) passing yards in twelve games as a rookie had seven touchdown passes with seven interceptions as a and the new regime expects him to become a top-notch signal caller in 2018. The Bears number thirty ranked offense produced just (175.7) yards passing per contest last in the NFL. However, the rushing attack led by Jordan Howard (1,122) rushing yards and then rookie Tariq Cohen who’s Devin Hester like moves excited fans last year ranked eighteenth league-wide. The lack of a deep threat at wide receiver has been haunting the Bears passing game the past few seasons, they expected former first-round draft pick Kevin White to step up, but he’s had an injury-plagued career. Free Agent acquisitions Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, along with rookie draft choice Anthony Miller is expected to step in and contribute immediately, Robinson missed most of 2017 in Jacksonville. There are also question on the offensive line, guard Kyle Long is solid but he has a long history of injuries, and the question remains how long he can hold up? Unless something spectacular takes place, the Bears offense could be the Achilles heel again in 2018-19.

The organization is high on 2018 number-eight overall draft pick Roquan Smith and expects he’ll be manning the middle for years to come. Chicago ranked in the top third of the NFL in pass defense, total defense and their (101.8) yards per contest they allowed opponents on the ground was eleventh. Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio seems to have restored the Monsters of the Midway image, a nickname given to the Dick Butkus era Chicago Bears defenses. Defensive end Akiem Hicks is the headliner; it’s about time he got some consideration for All-Pro honors. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman is equally effective against the runs, with Smith in the middle opponents will have a tough time moving the football, especially at home when condition begin to change in November and December. Cornerbacks Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara are highly paid and equally productive along with safety Eddie Jackson who had a stellar rookie season could propel the Bears defense to even higher heights. Chicago is solid on defense but will be tested plenty by Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Kirk Cousins.

After a coaching change and a healthy Luck Colts, fans are excited.

Written by National Football League Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NFL ATS Weekly Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay couldn’t blame Chuck Pagano for last season’s nightmare, but it had to fall on someone’s shoulder, and two years after former General Manager Ryan Grigson got fired Pagano should have seen the writing on the wall. Enter fifty-six-year-old Frank Reich who as an NFL quarterback once led the greatest comeback in playoff history. General Manager Chris Ballard hopes year two will turn out better than his first in the Circle City but also understands he can’t waste time playing in a division which features up upstarts Jacksonville, Tennessee, and Houston. Fans at Lucas Oil Field were seen leaving games early with dismal performances on both sides of the football in 2017.

Indianapolis ranked near the bottom of the NFL in virtually every category, their (284.6) yards of offense per contest ranked thirty-first overall but they addressed the offensive line woes by selecting Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson number-six overall, and Auburn’s Braden Smith early in round two. Both will become immediate starters to help a unit that gave up fifty-six sacks last season. Center Ryan Kelly who returns after missing a lot of 2017 with injuries and Tackle Anthony Castonzo are solid. Future Hall of Fame running back Frank Gore, brought in by Pagano was released making room for the talented second-year Marlon Mack who will have a breakout season. It doesn’t matter how much talent Indianapolis has if the spark plug that makes the engine runs is down, that would be quarterback Andrew Luck who missed all last season with a bad shoulder; with him, they are a playoff contender without it’ll be another nightmare season. Wide Receiver T. Y. Hilton was named to his fourth straight pro-bowl, he’s also Luck’s favorite target. Former Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron could pay huge dividends if he play’s up to his expectations. However the most intriguing player on the roster is former Virginia Commonwealth University basketball player Mo Alie-Cox, coaches think he’s the next Antonio Gates.

Unfortunately, Indianapolis was just as bad on the defensive side allowing a little over twenty-five points per game by opponents. They had trouble stopping both the pass and run; it’s a miracle they won as many football games as they did in 2017. First-year defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus most success came at the Collegiate level where he did a masterful job with the Missouri Tigers, but he’s grateful for getting a chance in the NFL. Reich displeasures for huge egos was demonstrated when he cut high priced free agent Johnathan Hankins in year one of a huge contract and allowed leading tackler Jon Bostic also to walk. Rookie Darius Leonard was selected early in round two, along with Kemoko Turay and former Ohio State standout Tyquan Lewis could be the best second round trio in the league. Defensive End Jabaal Sheard brings leadership which is sorely needed. Defensive backs Quincy Wilson, and Malik Hooker showed why they were drafted early in 2017 both have potential to be the star’s in the league. Indianapolis should up their win total to five games but it’all be a few years before they get to the playoffs.

Native son brings the hope of BCS title to Florida State in 2018-19.

Written by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NCAA Football ATS Betting Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Although there’s a coaching change the expectations are still at a premium at Florida State, Jimbo Fisher delivered at National Championship but other than dominance over their downtrodden in-state rivals the University of Florida, and Miami that’s about all Fisher did in his tenure. Fisher is now at Texas A&M while forty-one-year-old Bradenton, Florida product Willie Taggart takes over the reigns at Florida State. The first order of business for Taggart is to restore an offense that has not been the same since former Heisman trophy winner, and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston left the program. Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers are the new kings of the Atlantic Coast, and Florida State gets them at Doak Campbell Stadium this season as well as VirginiaTech and the Florida Gators coming to Tallahassee. Road trips to Miami, Louisville, and Notre Dame could provide a measuring stick to see where they are, Taggart understands he’ll be judge how many wins he can post.

Thirty-four-year-old Walt Bell will do everything in his power to improve a one hundredth ranked offense (351.9) total yards per game in College football from a year ago, with the help of Taggart who did wonder at Oregon in 2017, the University of South Florida, and Western Kentucky before his one season west. As usual Florida State has talent at every skilled position, but quarterback is another story with Deondre Francois who missed all but one game last season plus must restore his image in the locker room and James Blackman (2,230) passing yards as a true freshman in 2017. Wideout Nyqwan Murray missed spring drills with a knee injury but should be ready for the 2018 opener. Sixty-Eight sacks were given up by the Florida State offensive line the past two seasons that’s terrible but Taggart and the staff a slew of players with experience returning. Sophomore Cam Akers (1,025) rushing yards is slowly erasing the memories of Dalvin Cook and should be an All-Conference selection in 2018. Taggart has his dream job and should have the Florida State offense hitting on all cylinder right out the gate.

Florida State’s eighteenth ranked defense is under the tool edge of Cincinnati, Ohio native Harlan Barnett who spent many years at his alma mater Michigan State perfecting his craft learning from genius Mark Dantonio who branched out from the Nick Saban coaching tree. Demarcus Christmas leads a group of defensive linemen who are not quite as good as Clemson, but they can do just about everything. Brian Burns is a unique talent rushing the passer, and along with Joshua Kaindoh, they could wreak havoc in the ACC. However, it’s the back seven which lost all three starting linebackers, safety first-round NFL draft pick Derwin James, and cornerback Tarvarus McFadden that concerns the coaching staff. James is a once in a decade talent, but Florida State has the creme of the crop in a talent-rich area that produces defensive backs like no other region at the prep level. Bovada.Lv, list the Florida State Seminoles at 9/1 to win the 2018-19 Atlantic Coast Conference Title.

The coaching staff needs a healthy Deshaun Watson for Texans success in 2018-19.

Written by National Football League Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NFL Weekly Betting Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. After Four seasons into the Bill O’Brien era produced two division titles and three consecutive 9-7 finishes 2017 looked promising until their prized rookie quarterback went down with a season-ending knee injury resulting in a 4-12, last place in the AFC South. A total of thirteen starters were placed on injured reserve in O’Brien’s only losing season propelling Jacksonville, and Tennessee to playoff berths. The team is slowing taking the identity of their head coach as being mentally tough with constant effort in all phases each time they take the field. Owner Bob McNair hired Brian Gaine as General Manager in the off-season: he immediately went to work by signing nine free agents. Former GM Rick Smith took a leave of absence to take care of his ailing wife but will be back as their Executive vice president of football operations.

O’Brien is also serving as their offensive coordinator and loves to play smash mouth football by running the football down opponents throats. Houston rushed for (115.1) yards per contest last season, fourteenth league-wide. Halfback Lamar Miller led the attack with (888) yards rushing but O’Brien likes to run between the tackles, and bruiser D’Onta Foreman could supplant Miller as a starter. Signal Caller Deshaun Watson showed he was worthy of the number twelve overall draft pick in 2017, as their starter Houston’s offense average nearly thirty-five points per game. The offensive line got exposed after his injury prompting Gaine to add free agents Senio Kelemete, Zach Fulton along with tackle Seantrel Henderson teaming with former first-round pick center Nick Martin the only returning starter. All-Pro wideout DeAndre Hopkins (1,378) receiving yards with a team-high thirteen touchdowns is becoming a star. Will Fuller has the speed to stretch defenses while former Ohio State standout Braxton Miller can play multiple positions. The staff expects draft pick Keke Coutee to compete for a job in their rotation at wide receiver.

2009 first round draft pick and the franchises leading tackler Brian Cushing is gone, but longtime defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, and J.J. Watt return to a twentieth ranked unit in 2017. Watt along with nose tackle D.J. Reader and Christian Covington were all casualties last season their presence will help tremendously both stopping the run and getting to opposing quarterbacks. Inside Linebacker Benardrick McKinney signed a massive deal in June, he along with second-year pro-Zach Cunningham should be a dynamic duo. On the outside where an underrated Whitney Mercilus is consistent and underpaid compared to Jadeveon Clowney who’s finally living up to his status as the number-one overall pick in 2014. Free Agents Aaron Colvin (slot cornerback), and safety  were the two most significant free agents acquisitions to help a pass defense which allowed (237.4.) yards per game through the air. Watt, Clowney, and Whitney Mercilus are proven pass rushers: they must take it to another level in 2018-19. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Texans at 7/4 to win the 2018-19 AFC South division title.

A Quarterback to excel in the spread offense is a must to propel North Carolina in 2018-19.

Written by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NCAA Football ATS Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Fans on basketball-crazed Tobacco road were brought back to earth after witnessing Marquise Williams, and 2017 number-two overall NFL draft pick Mitchell Trubisky under center. Head Coach Larry Fedora’s job could be on the line after failing to field a competitive team last season going 3-9. Fedora has a proven track record evaluating talent, eventually, bring prep stars to campus. Everyone understands Football is second, but they’ve experienced success on the gridiron. The Atlantic Coast Conference is loaded from top to bottom, their hoops rival Duke will also be competing for the Coastal Division title in 2018-19. North Carolina has a favorable non-conference schedule this year; their first two games are on the road at California-Berkeley and East Carolina. Central Florida comes to town to on September 15th, the following week they host Pittsburgh to start ACC play. Road trips to Miami and Syracuse are on the slate while they get North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, and Georgia Tech at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill.

Offensive coordinator Chris Kapolovic must develop a signal caller for an offense which scored just under twenty-points per contest in conference action, and their (369.6) total yards of offense per game ranked ninety-sixth in the FBS. Quarterback Chazz Surratt threw for just (1,342) yards as a true freshman with all indications he’ll battle Nathan Elliott in fall camp to run the offense in 2018. As mediocre as they are at quarterback, the skilled position is a different story, wideout Anthony Ratliff-Williams, the headliner with his leaping ability and speed. Halfbacks Michael Carter and Jordon Brown did an exceptional job last season despite having opposing lines stacked for the run due to their deficiency at quarterback. However, the coaching staff is waiting for interior linemen evolve, complementing tackles William Sweet and Charlie Heck. Kenan Stadium is one of the most picturesque venues to view a football game, but fans also want a productive offense.

As bad as the Tar Heels were on offense they weren’t much better on defense. The (436.1) total yards yielded per game ranked ninety-ninth in College Football with their defensive linemen getting blown off the ball consistently, allowing the opposition (213.0) yards per contest on the ground. The good news is eight of their top nine interior players return, and fans have been watching this too often the past half decade. Second-year defensive coordinator John Papuchis was brought in to solve their woes; he’s expecting soaring results in 2018. Pass rush specialist Malik Carney should have another stellar campaign in what will be his final as a Tar Heel. Linebacker Cole Holcomb is a proven leader and led the team in tackles the past two seasons. M.J. Stewart is now a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and you can bet his presence in the secondary will be missed. Safety Myles Dorn along with cornerback K.J. Sails will be depended on to groom inexperienced players, both have an ability in pass coverage but are suspect against the run. Engaging blockers to stop the run is a must for North Carolina. Bovada.Lv, list the Florida Atlantic Owls at +10,000 to win the 2018-19 Atlantic Coast Conference Crown.

After a durable finish, last season Chargers are looking to make a quantum leap.

Written by National Football League Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NFL Weekly ATS Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the 2019 Super Bowl in February of 2019. A Future Hall of Fame quarterback plus talent on both sides of the football has Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn believing they don’t need a home field advantage to win. Starting 0-4 in 2017 and playing in the 30,000 seat StubHub Center didn’t precisely set the Chargers loyal fanbase into a frenzy but finishing the season with six of seven victories has them excited. Owner Alex Spanos understands it’s going to be difficult until the exotic facility, Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park opens their doors to accommodate fans. Until then the Chargers want to demonstrate how football is played on the field as opposed to the business aspect. They’ll have ample time to show how it’s done as training camp approaches.

Thirty-six-year-old signal-caller Philip Rivers and a current iron man at the most critical position in Football led Los Angeles to their first winning season since 2014. The former North Carolina State alumni have a total of 201 consecutive starts which tops all active quarterbacks. However, unlike Eli Manning, selected three picks before with two SuperBowl rings while Rivers has none. 276.9. Through the air and a number-one ranking is what the Chargers passing game produced last season with Rivers at the helm. Offensive Coordinator Ken Whisenhunt expects more of the same from the unit again this season; it’s a twenty-fourth ranked rushing attack which got addressed in the offseason. Former Miami Dolphins Center Mike Pouncey was signed in efforts to open holes for speedy running back Melvin Gordon (1,105) yards on the ground. The return of guard Forrest Lamp who missed his rookie campaign with a torn ACL along with 2x Pro Bowl selection Russell Okung should show immediate results. Tight End Antonio Gates retired, but a talented set of wide receivers led by Keenan Allen (1,393) yards receiving and Mike Williams is still intact. Specialist Travis Benjamin is dangerous on kick/punt returns. Watch out NFL the Chargers offense will be more explosive in 2018!

Defensively the Chargers ranked thirty first against the run last season, allowing opponents (131.1) yards per contest which is unacceptable with interior linemen Corey Liuget and Brandon Mebane. Second-year coordinator Gus Bradley expects his front-four will be among the best in the NFL with familiarity to a new system. Defensive end Melvin Ingram, and Joey Bosa have everything to takes to get to opposing quarterback, Bosa led the team with twelve and a half sacks in 2017. Training camp will allow inside linebackers Denzel Perryman and Hayes Pullard to compete for a starting job which is essential in Bradley’s defensive schemes. Cornerbacks Jason Verrett, Casey Hayward, along with Desmond King can all play man to man coverage with confidence at critical moments. The Chargers pass defense was third in the NFL last season. 2018 first round draft pick safety Derwin James is a physical specimen, he intrigued Lynn a former defensive back so much that the organization passed on their needs to get the best available player. The Chargers defense will be able to stop the run, and it’ll be the difference in a division title. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Chargers at +175 to win the 2018-19 AFC West division title.
