Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Point Spread Picks are again the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl Game in February of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Chuck Pagano era is near an end. The fifty-six-year-old leukemia survivor enters his sixth season on the sideline in the largest city in the “HOOSIER CITY.”

Chris Ballard takes over for Ryan Grigson as the General Manager of the team. Owner Jim Irsay will just about do anything to win, and the writing is on the wall for Pagano.

Indianapolis went 8-8 last season, finishing third in the AFC South. The Colts offense produced the most points of any team in the division but couldn’t stop anyone on the other side of the football.

Indianapolis won the AFC South in 2013 and 2014 but the postseason has eluded them the past two years. The Colts have a game changer at quarterback and a future hall of fame in the backfield.

Teams in the AFC South are average at best, and the Colts have all of the ingredients to dominate.

 

The Indianapolis Colts offense ranked near the top of the NFL in passing, and points scored.

Starting Signal Caller Andrew Luck (4,240) passing yards last season has the physical tools to become a hall of fame but must cut down on turnovers.

The franchise has yet to address the offensive line issues which have haunted them for the past four or five seasons.

Former Temple standout P.J. Walker could be the surprise of training camp under center. Veteran Running Back Frank Gore (1,025) rushing yards is still a “BEAST” and can run effectively between the tackles.

Keep an eye on rookie Marlon Mack, the former University of South Florida standout could be the steal of the 2017 draft class.

Former VCU basketball star Mo Alie-Cox is a project but possesses the tools to make an impact as a player in the NFL.

Anthony Castonzo, Jack Mewhort, and Ryan Kelly must become dependable on the offensive line. Wideout T.Y. Hilton is the favorite target of Luck in the passing attack.

The key to success for the Colts offense in 2017-18 is for the O-line to protect Luck and open holes for Gore with consistency.

 

The 2017 Indianapolis Colts defense must improve in every area. Ted Monachino enters his second season and has some new toys via the NFL draft.

Former Ohio State standout Malik Hooker and Florida’s Quincy Wilson were taken by the Colts to shore up the secondary. Hooker has plenty of range at safety and Wilson is a big lock down cornerback.

Veteran cornerback Vontae Davis is still the best they have in the secondary. Indianapolis gave up (262.5) through the air last season, twenty-seventh in the National Football League.

Johnathan Hankins comes over from the New York Giants to become a run stopper. Jabaal Sheard won a Super Bowl ring with New England last season and now will be counted on to provide a pass rush in Indianapolis.

The “X-FACTOR” could be former Margus Hunt an imposing six-foot-eight-inch defensive end who spent the first four seasons in Cincinnati.

Indianapolis must get off of the field on third downs and let the offense put points on the scoreboard.

Bovada.Lv lists the Indianapolis Colts at +200 to win the 2017-18 American Football Conference South Crown.

Winning 2017-18 NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: Temple Owls Forecast.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NCAA Football Predictions is again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes it’s rebuilding time again at the largest football school in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE.”

Former University of Florida defensive coordinator Geoff Collins takes over for Matt Ruhle as the head coach of the Temple Owls, Ruhle is now the coach at Baylor.

Collins brings the same defense first mindset to Philadelphia. Temple won its first-ever American Athletic Conference Championship in 2016 with a 34-10 win against Navy.

Collins inherits a couple of good running backs, some speedy receivers, and experience in the secondary.

Temple is now considered a stepping stone job they have lost Al Golden, Steve Addazio, and most recent Ruhle.

Geoff Collins brings a swag that they developed by getting his Florida defenses ready for tough SEC competition, and it’s contagious.

Temple will get a test right out of the gate as they travel to Notre Dame in the season opener.

Villanova, UMass, and Army are also on the nonconference schedule.

A Home date with American Athletic Conference foes Central Florida plus a September road trip to South Florida could determine the East Division Title.

 

The 2017 Temple Owls offense will be without four-year starter Phillip Walker and talented running back Jahad Thomas.

Sophomore Logan Marchi and junior Frank Nutile are competing for the starting quarterback job.

Former Coastal Carolina offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude assumes the same position at Temple; he did wonders with the offense at his previous school. Marchi and Nutile are in good hands under his leadership.

The Owls were a middle of the pack team in both rushing and passing last season. Junior Running Back Ryquell Armstead has the size and durability to carry the load, especially when the weather turns cold.

Jager Gardner is also capable in the rushing attack and will spell Armstead in the new uptempo offense.

Senior wideouts Keith Kirkwood and Adonis Jennings have size, speed and experience to help out the young quarterbacks in the passing attack.

The key to success for the Temple offense is for the offensive line to be able to pass protect, the two running back can create their holes.

 

New first-year defensive coordinator Taver Johnson lost eight starters from one of the top defenses in the nation. Including a linebacker in the first round of the NFL draft.

However, there is still talent on the defensive line with sophomore tackle Michael Dogbe and senior defensive end Jacob Martin.

Temple ranked third overall in the nation in both run and passed defense. They allowed opponents just 18.4 points per game last season, eleventh nationally.

Three starters including senior safety Sean Chandler who is a former cornerback.

North Carolina Central transfer Mike Jones is another asset is the secondary and is a dynamic kick and punt returner.

The key to success for the Temple defense is how well they adjust to the new system, but tough tackling is still their greatest asset.

Bovada.Lv lists the Temple Owls at +2,000 to win the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championship.

Free 2017-18 College Football Predictions, and Odds: Wyoming Cowboys Forecast.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

College Football Point Spread Picks are again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes fans of the University of Wyoming are looking forward to another excellent season in the Mountain West Conference, Mountain Division.

Fifty-Eight-year old Craig Bohl is in his third season in Laramie, Wyoming after having success at North Dakota State.

Don’t let the 14-24 overall record full you; the Cowboys are on the rise. Once considered a doormat in the Mountain West, Wyoming beat Boise State, Air Force, Nevada, Colorado State and Utah State in a five game span in 2016.

They also beat then twenty-fourth ranked San Diego State before losing to the San Diego State Aztecs team in the Mountain West Championship game.

The season ended with a 24-21 Poinsettia Bowl loss to BYU. With success comes expectations and the coaching staff is well aware of this fact.

Wyoming play’s Iowa on the road and hosts Oregon in nonconference action.

Trips to Utah State and Boise State in October could tell what direction the 2017 Cowboys are headed.

 

Offensive Coordinator Brent Vigen has the luxury of having an NFL prospect under center in 2017.

Josh Allen (3,203) passing yards last season has a strong arm and is considered the cream of the crop as far as Mountain West quarterback are concerned.

The Wyoming offense produced (35.9) points per game in 2016, and the number should increase this season.

Wideout C.J. Johnson is the only returning receiver with experience, and it could be a liability. Redshirt Freshman wide receiver Parker Duma has the speed to stretch the defense and will be a long ball threat.

The loss of a 1,000 rusher in the backfield must also be filled. However, the offensive line returns five of six starters from last season.

Sophomore Gavin Rush will move from guard to center, replacing the void left by Chase Roullier.

The key to success for the Wyoming offense is for newcomers at the skill positions to step up their game.

The 2017 Wyoming defense, led by first-year coordinator Scottie Hazelton. He has plenty of talent; nine starters return to a unit which ranked 101st overall in College Football.

Kevin Prosser and Carl Granderson lead the charge upfront, Granderson missed a lot of the season and the spring with an ACL tear but will be ready for the season opener.

Mountain West Freshman of the Year Logan Wilson leads a cast of linebackers who can make plays from sideline to sideline and defend the pass.

Wilson moves to the inside linebacker position; he will make all of the calls and adjustments as a defensive signal caller.

All four starters return to a secondary that gave up too many big plays last season. The (249.5) yards through the air must improve.

A year of experience can do wonders for defensive backs, and they should know how to adjust to the football in the air.

The key to success for the Wyoming defense it to play zone, bend do not break.

Bovada.Lv lists the Wyoming Cowboys at +1,200 to win the 2017 Mountain West Conference Championship.

The Best NFL Betting Picks, and Odds: 2017-18 Buffalo Bills Preview.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Predictions is again the best in the industry and will continue through the annual Super Bowl Spectacle in February of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the culture for winning Football in Western New York is back.

Owners Terry and Kim Pegula are committed to restoring the once-proud tradition to Buffalo.

Fans in Buffalo are some of the most loyal and enthusiastic in the National Football League.

The Rex Ryan experiment is history, he did a lot of talking but couldn’t win. Former Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is now the head coach in the second largest city in the “EMPIRE STATE.”

Buffalo went 7-9 and next to the last place in the American Football Conference East division. Buffalo is working on their ninth head coach and seventh General Managers since 2000.

Putting, it into perspective the New England Patriots hired Bill Belichick in 2000.

The organization is looking for more consistency on the sidelines and McDermott is young, but smart enough to understand the dynamics of the National Football League.

Buffalo cleaned house but if players don’t perform at the level expected the Pegulas could move the franchise to Toronto within the next five years.

 

The 2017 Buffalo Bills offense will be led by quarterback Tyrod Taylor (3,023) passing yards last season.

Buffalo put up just (189.8) yards per game through the air in 2016. Wideouts Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin are now playing in the NFC West.

Former number-four overall draft choice Sammy Watkins has not played up to expectation, mainly due to injuries.

Rookie second-round draft pick Zay Jones is another deep threat. Andre Holmes comes over from Oakland and should be a weapon in the intermediate passing game.

Charles Clay is the incumbent at Tight End with Nick O’Leary as his backup. Veteran Center Eric Wood anchors an average offensive line.

Richie Incognito and Seantrel Henderson must also play up to their potential.

All Pro Running Back LeSean McCoy is still one of the best in the league and must be utilized more in the passing attack.

The key to success for Buffalo on offense is for Taylor to be more efficient throwing the football and improvise with his legs.

 

The Buffalo Bills pass defense ranked sixth in the NFL in 2016. However, the loss of cornerback Stephon Gilmore to New England could hurt in 2017.

Buffalo drafted LSU cornerback Tre’Davious White in the first round in April. Ronald Darby should start on the opposite side of the Rookie.

Rangy safety Micah Hyde brings speed to the lineup, the former Green Bay Packer can also help in the kick/punt return game.

The strength of Buffalo is on the defensive line where Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams are dominant at tackle. Defensive End Jerry Hughes is coming into his own as a pass rusher. Shaq Lawson and Adolphus Washington have talent and will be used in the rotation.

Linebackers Lorenzo Alexander, Preston Brown, and Reggie Ragland form a tight group of run stoppers; they are also good in pass coverage. Ragland has All-Pro potential.

The key to success for Buffalo on defense is for the tackles to get off of blocks better against the run.

Bovada.Lv lists the Buffalo Bills at +700 to win the 2017-18 American Football Conference East Crown.

2017-18 NFL Predictions, and Odds: Chicago Bears Forecast.

 

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

NFL ATS Picks are again the best in the industry and will continue through the annual Super bowl Spectacle in February of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Chicago Bears organization did themselves a favor by parting ways with quarterback Jay Cutler.

The McCaskey Family, has one of the most passionate fanbases in all of the sports and the faithful are tired of mediocrity.

Head Coach John Fox enters his third season on the sidelines in the “WINDY CITY.” He has plenty of experience in Carolina and Denver, where he brought success to both franchises. Fox took both Carolina and Denver to Super bowl appearances, losing both times.

The “MONSTERS OF THE MIDWAY” went 3-13 in 2016, but a quick turnaround is possible.

Fox is a master of making quick fixes on the offensive and defensive line.

General Manager Ryan Pace job is on the line and brought in Mike Glennon to take over the quarterback job.

Chicago plays in the NFC North with Green Bay, Detroit, and Minnesota.

 

The 2017 Chicago Bears offense can’t go anywhere but up. Chicago finished next to last in the NFL scoring points in 2016; only the Cleveland Browns were worse.

Rookie Running Back Jordan Howard (1,313) rushing yards last season was a pleasant surprise. The former UAB and Indiana University star came out of nowhere to be the fifth leading rusher in the league.

Chicago must improve in every area on offense and produce more than their 17.4 points per game in 2016. Offensive Coordinator Dowell Loggains understands the dynamics of the division; it gets cold in October and conditions become rugged.

Number-Two overall draft choice Mitchell Trubisky will not be pressed into service, Glennon will have that distinction and welcomes the challenge. Trubisky will get his chance and is the future of the franchise.

Wideout Alshon Jeffery is now in Philadelphia, but Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, and former first-round draft pick Kevin White have the talent to become the best in the division.

The offensive line must do a better job in pass protection.

The key to success for Chicago on offense is to protect the quarterback and for a receiver to become a breakout player.

 

The 2017 Chicago Bears defense had one of the most talented secondaries in the National Football League.

However, they were not very good against the run, and that stat must improve.

Longtime defensive coordinator Vic Fangio came over with Fox, and they should turn the corner in the 2017 season.

Nose Tackle Eddie Goldman is the mainstay on the defensive line. 2016 First Round draft choice Leonard Floyd showed flashes in his rookie season, Sam Ocho, and Pernell McPhee all have the ability to rush the passer.

Former Denver standout Danny Trevathan will call signals from his inside linebacker position.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara joins a young secondary, and he will provide veteran leadership. The second year Florida Atlantic University cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc did a masterful job in his rookie season. Kyle Fuller must live up to expectations as a former top round draft choice.

The key to success for the Bears defense is to stop the run and get off of the field on third down.

NCAA Football Point Spread Picks, and Odds: 2017 Old Dominion Monarchs Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Football Predictions are again the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Championship Game in January of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper believes the future is bright for the third rated NCAA football program in the “MOTHER OF STATES.” Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder enters his fourth season as a member of Conference-USA and is putting his stamp on the program.

Long gone is record-setting signal caller Taylor Heinicke and so is the pass happy philosophy.

The Monarchs were 10-3, (7-0) at home in 2016, finishing second in the East Division of Conference USA.

With the departure of Western Kentucky head coach Jeff Brohm, the Monarchs are setting their sites on the 2017 division title.

Old Dominion has the most balance of any school in C-USA, with a stout defense and adequate offense.

Old Dominion lost badly to Appalachian State, North Carolina State, and Western Kentucky last season, but are ready in 2017.

Nonconference games against ACC powers North Carolina and Virginia Tech in September could determine what direction the program is heading.

Conference USA foes Western Kentucky, and Rice are formidable opponents that visit Norfolk, Virginia in 2017.

 

Former wideout David Washington did a masterful job under center last season, but he’s gone.

Blake LaRussa is set to be the starting quarterback in 2017. Offensive coordinator Brian Scott is in his ninth season in the press box and is excited about his offense this season.

Running Back, Ray Lawry (1,255) rushing yards last season is the primary weapon on offense. Junior Jeremy Cox is the best backup running back in the Conference-USA, he ran for 732 yards.

The Old Dominion offense put up over thirty-five points per game last season, and it was a balance of running and passing.

Wideouts Jonathan Duhart and Travis Fulgham are top targets in the passing attack and Lawry can catch the football out of the backfield.

Junior center Nick Clarke anchors the offensive line which returns three starters from last season.

The key to success for the Old Dominion offense is to avoid injuries on the line and aggressive play calling.

 

The 2017 Old Dominion defense has potential, and coordinator Rich Nagy must continue to recruit the “TIDEWATER” area.

Old Dominion did a great job creating turnovers last season, and it’s one of the reasons they won them football games.

Four returning edge rushers should help the unit again this season. The 383.9 yards given up by the defense should improve in 2017, producing more turnovers.

However these are College kids, and hopefully, they don’t believe their hype. Senior cornerback Brandon Addison is a team captain and a high character football player.

Old Dominion is loaded in the secondary and will improve on their 226.8 yards per game given up through the air.

As much experience they have on the defensive line and secondary, losses at the linebacker position could loom big as the season progresses.

The key to success for Old Dominion this season is for young players to step up at linebacker.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2017 Old Dominion Monarchs at +500 to win the Conference USA Crown.
