Falcons Backers Hope for More Consistency

Julio Jones Atlanta Falcons NFL

Remember last season when the Atlanta Falcons looked like one of the most dangerous teams in football? Matt Ryan and Co. came flying out of the gate, posting a 5-0 straight up record through five weeks and averaged a whopping 32.4 points per game.

Bettors flocked to fill their betting slips with the Dirty Birds as they stormed out to cover the number in their first four games. That was short lived, however, as they proceeded to post a record of 0-9 ATS and 2-7 SU in their following nine games. How they mighty do fall.

Megatron is Gone but Lions Won't Roll Over in 2016

Matthew Stafford Detroit Lions NFL

While the great wide receiver Calvin Johnson hung up his pads and retired at the age of 30, it might not be as disastrous in Detroit as one might think.

I mean, this team isn’t going to win the Super Bowl or anything, but while they began the 2015 season with a 1-7 SU (and ATS) record, they finished it going 6-2 SU (and ATS). One of the keys to that transformation in the second half was the appointment of Jim Bob Cooter to offensive coordinator. The offense thrived under Cooter’s guidance and a full season is full of promise and excitement.

Another Season of Mediocrity Looms in Buffalo

If you would have said the Buffalo Bills would have ended the 2015 season with an exciting offense and a defense that was mediocre at best, I probably would have laughed in your face. But that’s exactly what happened.

Luck to Lead League in Passing Only Colts' Future With Value

Things are starting to get desperate for the Indianapolis Colts. They have just lost Vontae Davis for the first month of the season and were forced to sign former New York Jet Antonio Cromartie. They will finally welcome back Andrew Luck but the nine games he struggled through at the start of 2015 did not inspire a lot of confidence that he can lead his team back to a conference championship game in 2016.

Can the Redskins Beat a Winning Team This Year?

The Redskins won the final four games of their 2015 schedule to finish the year on top of the NFC East with a 9-7 record. The caveat here is that none one of those nine wins came against a team with a record over .500. This is not a good look for a team that did not tangibly improve in very many categories for the upcoming season.

Will Heartbreak Befall Jets Again in 2016?

The New York Jets were expected to be a bottom-feeder last year, but they surprised everyone by remaining in playoff contention until the last week of the season. The Jets were two defeats to the Bills short of being the No. 1 seed in the AFC East, and they ended up missing the postseason altogether as a result. Such is life for fans of the gang green.

Value Non-existent for Cowboys Bettors in 2016

2015 was a year of significant regression for the Dallas Cowboys, but they had their reasons. First and foremost, their most important player, Tony Romo, played in just four games. To dump more gas on the dumpster fire that was their 4-12 season, their best playmaker, Dez Bryant, played in just nine games. Both are back and supposedly healthy, and as always, the expectations are sky-high in Big D.

Season Win Total an Appealing Option for Texans

JJ Watt Houston Texans NFL

Many folks hopped aboard the Houston Texans hype train shortly after the free agency market opened. The Texans suddenly found themselves as the “sexy pick du jour” after acquiring the likes of quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller but is that enough for the team to improve on a 9-7 record?

The Texans, who had a matching 9-7 record against the spread last season, did win the division with that mark but were smoked 30-0 in their Wild Card playoff game versus the Kansas City Chiefs. At home no less!
