Sandwich Game Theory

Undefined

Over the course of a long and punishing season even the most talented teams in the league have off-games. In a perfect world, every game would have every player playing at 100%, but that just isn’t realistic.

Some games will see a team feeling fresh, confident, energetic, and ready to play at a high level. In other games, the emotional and physical toll of a long season will show on the field or court, making a team look sluggish and unfocused.

Halftime Betting Strategies and Tips

Undefined

Halftime betting is available at the sportsbooks for both football and basketball, and it’s becoming a key staple for NFL bettors looking to stay ahead of the oddsmakers.

Lines on the second half of action are typically available at the end or near the end of the first half, leaving bettors with precious little time to do some rapid-fire handicapping and make a bet. As well, you probably won’t have time to shop around for the sharpest number.

However, you do have one advantage: You’ve seen the teams in question play the first half.

NFL Opening Lines: Wild Card Weekend

The Dallas Cowboys opened as touchdown-favorites for their Wild Card Weekend matchup with the Detroit Lions at AT&T Stadium late on Sunday afternoon, and that line is already on the move at the online sportsbooks.

Tony Romo and company were up to 8.5-point favorites for that matchup as of Monday night, likely thanks in part to the news that Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh was handed a one-game suspension that would keep him out against Dallas barring a successful appeal this week (Editor's Note: Suh won his appeal and will play on Sunday).
