Winning 2017 NFL Point Spread Predictions, and Odds: Cincinnati Bengals Preview.

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

Weekly NFL ATS Picks is again the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl Game in February of 2018.

The Best Sports Handicapper believes the window for the Cincinnati Bengals to bring home a Super bowl title in the Marvin Lewis era.

The former architect of the dominant Baltimore defense that led the Ravens to a Superbowl title enters his fourteenth season in “SOUTHWEST OHIO.”

Cincinnati has not gotten past the first round of the postseason in seven appearances, but owner Mike Brown is sticking with Lewis as his man.

Former coordinators Jay Gruden, Hue Jackson, and Mike Zimmer have become head coaches elsewhere, and it’s the losses are starting to rear its ugly head.

Cincinnati finished behind Pittsburgh and Baltimore in the AFC North in 2016. Another 7-9 finish and management will begin to hear rumblings from the loyal fan base.

There is no doubt the Bengals have a prolific offense and can score points, but the question is can the defense hold up with the significant losses.

 

The 2017 Cincinnati Bengals offense will again have Andy Dalton under center. The former TCU standout passed for 4,206 yards in 2016 but must learn to perform in important football games.

Cincinnati gave Dalton a deep threat by drafting speedy wideout John Ross with the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The running game got a boost with Joe Mixon taken in the second round. Both rookies have the talent to make an immediate impact.

Longtime Left Tackle Andrew Whitworth left for the Los Angeles Rams and guard Kevin Zeitler is now a member of the Cleveland Browns. Former first round draft choice Cedric Ogbuehi gets his chance with the departure of Whitworth.

A. J. Green is still one of the best at his position in the league, and the addition of Ross could make the Bengals unstoppable in the passing game.

All purpose running back Giovani Bernard can make things happen out of the backfield in a variety of ways, and Jeremy Hill will tutor Mixon.

The key to success for the Cincinnati offense in 2017 is to avoid turnovers and score early and often.

 

Defensive Coordinator Paul Guenther and his unit did a good job against the pass, and they only allowed opponents 19.7 points per games in 2016. However, the departures of veterans Karlos Dansby, Ray Maualuga and Domata Peko could hurt with leadership.

Cincinnati has talent in the trenches with Geno Atkins and the anchor. Defensive Ends Carlos Dunlap, Wallace Gilberry, and Michael Johnson. Cincinnati also has a young rookie, Jordan Willis who gives 100% every play.

Outside Linebacker Vontaze Burfict has the potential to become the best in the NFL, more pressure will be on the former Arizona State star to produce at a high level with the loss of Maualuga.

Cincinnati has four first round draft picks at cornerback, and it’s time for them to show their worth. Dre Kirkpatrick did an adequate job last season and 2016 first round draft pick William Jackson III will compete with Darqueze Dennard.

Safety George Iloka  is robust and has the intelligence to make calls in the secondary.

Rookie Kicker Jake Elliott should beat out the competition and become a special teams standout.

Free 2017 NCAA Football Betting Predictions, and Odds: Texas Tech Red Raiders Preview.

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

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

The Best Sports Handicapper believes Texas Tech will still have one of the most prolific offenses in the Big-Twelve, despite losing Pat Mahomes to the NFL.

Kliff Kingsbury enters his fifth season as the head coach at his alma mater and expectation are high.

Texas Tech began the 2016 season with a 3-1 record and score over fifty points in all four games. However, they dropped six of eight to end the campaign and missed out on a bowl appearance for the second time in three years.

Kingsbury is an offensive genius but is devoting more of his time to a defense that could not stop anybody.

Texas Tech opens up 2017 with home games against Eastern Washington and Arizona State. A Road date vs. The Houston Cougars follows in out of Conference action.

Texas Tech has Big Twelve home dates with Oklahoma State, TCU, Iowa State and Kansas State. The Red Raiders travel to Oklahoma and Texas in the 2017 season.

 

Top Ten 2017 NFL draft choice Patrick Mahomes will be replaced by senior Nic Shimonek.

Former Red Raider wideout and current offensive coordinator Eric Morris has an offensive mind and expects big things from Shimonek.

The 2016 Texas Tech offense put up an average of (566.6) yards per game, 1st in the FBS and the 463.0 yards through the air also led the nation.

Texas Tech scored nearly 44-points per contest, and it was not enough to finish with a winning record. Despite the transfer of leading receiver Jonathan Giles, playmakers Dylan Cantrell, Cameron Batson and Keke Coutee are explosive.

Running Back Deandre Washington is efficient as a runner and as a receiver out of the backfield.

Three starting linemen return, led by two sophomore tackles who are good run blockers and can protect the quarterback in drop back situations.

The key to success for the Red Raiders offense is to be able to stay on the field, giving the defense plenty of time to rest.

 

The defense has been the Achilles heel at Texas Tech in the Kingsbury era. David Gibbs enters his third season as the coordinator but will get help from the head coach this season.

They need to get better at every level, in 2016 they allowed opponents (554.3) yards of offense per game, 128 nationally. The 43.5 points per contest also ranked 128th in the FBS.

Their best performance last season was holding TCU to twenty-four points in a double overtime victory.

However, there is some talent with young players from last season having a year of experience. Also, transfers are in the mix at various positions.

Joseph Wallace, Broderick Washington and, Kolin Hill will anchor the defensive line.

As expected the secondary has plenty of game changers, the entire state of Texas is full of speed, and Texas Tech has their share of talent at cornerback and safety.

The key to success for the Red Raiders defense is to force turnovers and get off of the field on third down.

Bovada.Lv lists the Boston College Eagles at 100/1 to win the 2017 Big Twelve Conference Championship.

The Bob Diaco lasted just three seasons, and it was not productive. Randy Edsall is back on the sidelines at the largest institute of higher learning in the state.

After four disastrous seasons at Maryland, Edsall is back at the place where he won football games.

In 2010 Edsall became the winningest coach in the university history, leading them to the Fiesta Bowl.

Connecticut opens the 2017 season with a winnable home game against Holy Cross. American Athletic Conference foe South Florida invades East Hartford on September 9th.

Non Conference road trips to Virginia and Boston College are also on the slate in 2017.

The schedule could work to the advantage of the Huskies this season. UConn went 3-9 overall last season, last in the American Athletic Conference East Division.

The 2017 Connecticut Huskies offense must improve on the 320.0 yards of offense per game last season, 122nd nationally.

Connecticut has must improve in both the passing and running game. Former Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee will now execute the show in Storrs, Connecticut.

Running Back, Arkell Newsome returns after gaining a team-best 715 yards rushing with seven touchdowns.

A couple of decent recruiting classes with the right personnel with put the program back in the top tier for the Conference.

Under Center will be Bryant Shirreffs, 2,010 passing yards in 2016. However, turnovers were a regular occurrence last season, and the new staff will implement more zone reads.

Sophomore Donovan Williams signal caller could be a better fit for the Huskies offense, but a knee injury in spring practice hampered his progress.

Three veteran starters return on the offensive line which will help the running attack.

The key to success for the Connecticut offense is how fast they can learn the new system.

 

The Connecticut defense has been the strength of the team for the past few seasons. The run defense has been particularly good in the 2016 campaign.

The loss of starting linebacker E.J. Levenberry in the spring will hurt as he will miss the entire 2017 season.

Junior Joseph and Vontae Diggs must take up the slack, and they are capable of doing just that. The defensive line will be solid with three great players returning.

Safety Obi Melifonwu is now in the NFL; now the pressure is on cornerbacks Jamar Summers and Tre Bell to take their game to another level.

2017 NBA Finals Expert Betting Picks, and Odds: King James Enjoying Jordan Comparison.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

NBA Predictions are winning at a winning rate and will continue through the 2017 NBA Finals Game in June. Thursday. June 1st, 2017 is a day Basketball Fans around the globe have circled.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin their quest for a repeat vs. The Golden State Warriors.

Both teams ran through the 2017 NBA Postseason with ease and will face off in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive season.

No player in recent history has the pressure of expectations as Cleveland Forward LeBron James.

It was just about eight years ago when the “KING” made his infamous decision to join the Miami Heat; The results were astounding as the Head won two NBA titles in four seasons.

However James left a bad taste in the mouth of fans in the nation, and nowhere was he more hated than Northeast Ohio. James, a native of Akron, Ohio was supposed to be the savior of the franchise.

He still holds the title; he just took a detour to come back to the “BUCKEYE STATE” and deliver.

James is now playing in his seventh consecutive NBA Finals, and there is a lot on the line.

 

In 2016 The City of Cleveland got their long awaited professional sports Championship as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.

Fans were seen dancing in the streets of Cleveland, and the Indians of Major League Baseball almost gave the city another Championship but fell short.

James is finally living up to the lofty expectations surrounding him as a high schooler at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s in Akron.

As a member of the Miami Heat James won but felt out of place. The kid is loyal to Northeast Ohio, and this sports handicapper knew he was going back to the place he loved so much.

LeBron James is a once in a lifetime player, who has the physical stature of a Superhero and the ball skills of a point guard.

None of it will matter if the Cavaliers don’t repeat as NBA Champions.

The best player in the world can silence all of the critics and will own the City of Cleveland aka “THE MISTAKE BY THE LAKE.”

James and the Cavaliers will travel to the Bay Area where the Golden State Warriors will be waiting with another weapon in their arsenal.

The Golden State Warriors added star Kevin Durant to the roster, and it showed how good of a move it was in the playoffs.

The Warriors got a scare from the San Antonio Spurs, but the loss of Kawhi Leonard for the Spurs made it almost impossible to pull off the upset.

Another twist to the 2017 NBA Finals is that former Cleveland coach Mike Brown will be on the bench substituting for Steve Kerr.

What team has the advantage is still up in the air, Brown who once understood how to contain James but the King has grown mentally.

Durant, known as a selfish player must be how poise and get teammates involved.

There is also a lot on the line for the former Oklahoma City Thunder star.

Bovada.Lv has Golden State at -275 to win the 2017 NBA Finals.

The Best NBA Playoff Western Conference Finals Picks, and Odds: San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors.

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

Our 500-star 2017 NBA Playoff Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2017.

The (69-26) and Two Seed San Antonio Spurs of the Western Conference Southwest Division will stay in the “BAY AREA” for game 2 of their best of seven Western Conference Finals Playoff matchup.

The Betting Odds Total is 209 Points for Tuesday’s Western Conference Finals Playoff Game 2 contest.

 

The San Antonio Spurs got to the Western Conference Finals by taking care of Houston in six games.

Head Coach Gregg Popovich and his staff must feel sick to their stomachs after letting a twenty-point halftime lead slip away in the finals minutes of the match.

Most Valuable Player candidate Kawhi Leonard spent most of the second half on the bench.

That is when the game turned with Golden State exposing the weaknesses of the second-seed San Antonio Spurs.

San Antonio is already short-handed with an injury to point guard Tony Parker, and now with the status of Leonard in question, the staff must get their mental focus in order.

San Antonio seemed to be the more dominant team in the post, and they should slow the game down if they expect to even the series.

Forward LaMarcus Aldridge played up to his capabilities with a twenty-eight point performance. Center Pau Gasol must become more of a factor Tuesday.

Bovada.Lv lists the San Antonio Spurs at +850 to advance to the 2017 NBA Finals.

However, the team looked vulnerable in the come from behind win over San Antonio, especially in the post.

Golden State got seventy-four points from Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. Klay Thompson was not a factor with just six points.

Center Zaza Pachulia and his backup JaVale McGee were less than spectacular, combining for just twelve points.

Reserve David West must also get into the action a little more than he did in game one.

The layoff from the Utah series hurt Draymond Green, who had trouble finding his rhythm.

Head Coach Steve Kerr is still nursing a sore back, and he is not expected to return to the bench.

Mike Brown is taking over the coaching duties and is familiar with San Antonio.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017 Golden State Warriors at -1,700 to advance to the NBA Finals against the Eastern Conference.
