College football coaches are often pretty coy about naming their starting quarterbacks, especially when there are legitimate questions about it. And yes, we realize that BetAnySports customers find that relatively annoying. In the case of the Texas Bowl, which will be played on Tuesday night in Houston, there was no way around it.
To a certain extent, you can say that about the Kansas State Wildcats and coach Chris Klieman, because he wasn't certain as to whether Skylar Thompson's lower-leg injury would allow him to play. But as workouts continued, those concerns lessened.
As for Brad Davis, there has been a major headache. And according to iGaming Platform Software, it continues.
You may be asking - who is Brad Davis? Well, he is the interim coach for the LSU Tigers for purposes of this bowl game. After Ed Orgeron was told he wasn't going to continue beyond the end of the season, which happened several games ago, the head coaching search began.
It is very hard to handicap a game when you don't know who's playing. And it's especially difficult if you don't know who's playing quarterback. At the moment, BetAnySportscustomers are hit with this dilemma in the rescheduled game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Team. If you are making your NFL picks for this one, you may want to wait and see who passes their tests.
And what we mean by that is, their tests for Covid-19, which has, by way of an outbreak, wreaked all kinds of havoc on the NFL schedule.
We're not sure of the exact count, but Washington has had over 20 players on the reserve list. And while coach Ron Rivera insists that 80% percent of those guys are asymptomatic, the protocol itself still has the potential of keeping them out.
What's painful here is that starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke and his backup, Kyle Allen, are, as of press time, not eligible to play. So this team may be forced to go with Garrett Gilbert as the starter. And he has not even been with the team for a week.
The highlight of the Big 12 schedule this weekend is a first-place battle between No. 17 Iowa State (3-1, 3-0) and No. 6 Oklahoma State (3-0, 2-0). Neither team played last week as ISU had a scheduled off week, and OSU’s game at Baylor was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak for the Bears.
This game kicks off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET at T. Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., and will be televised on FOX.
Oklahoma State won last year’s game in Iowa 34-27, and it has taken seven of the last eight meetings. Iowa State won its most recent trip to Stillwater with a 48-42 win in 2018, its first road win in the series since 2000. Overall, Oklahoma State leads the series 32-19-3.
This may sound crazy to you, but the New England Patriots could be one of the top three teams in the National Football League right now. The Pats opened their season with a disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins, as they were breaking in a new quarterback.
But they've come a long way since then. New England is the possessor of a four-game winning streak, and it could have easily been six (with narrow losses to Dallas and Tampa Bay). And that quarterback might be on his way to the Rookie of the Year award. BetAnySports customers need to recognize this as they approach their NFL betting for Thursday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The kickoff is set for 8:20 PM ET at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and you can see it on NFL Network, Fox Network and Amazon Prime. And while that's happening, you can stay involved in the action with real-time wagering through Super Lines, Premier Lines and Ultimate Lines.
Of course, before the game begins, reduced juice gives you a lot of value and helps you save money over the course of time.
The NFC East was once the crown jewel of the National Football League. Dallas, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington. Every franchise has a deep, storied, history and most franchises in the division are bitter rivals. But over the last couple of years, it's become a two-horse race in pph sportsbooks. The Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles have bumped heads since at least 2018 while the New York Giants and the team that plays in D.C. have floundered.
Ironically, in Week 1, only the Washington Football Team, the biggest underdogs to win the NFC East, scored a victory with a 27-17 upset win over the Eagles as 5.5-point home dogs. Odds have barely shifted, though, and the jury is still out on whether the Cowboys or Eagles will win the division in NFC East betting.
The NFL owners will be having a series of online meeting to discuss various matters relating to the pro football league. Of course, they will be talking about health and safety protocols regarding COVID-19, and the plans for the Super Bowl LV. They will also discuss the possibility of extending the regular season in 2021, something bookies at SportsbookPayPerHead.com would be looking forward to.
One of the concerns of the league is the COVID-19 cases that teams get. So far, for December 6-12, there are 14 cases from players and 31 from staff. Despite the number of cases, this is actually a decline comparing it to previous weeks. The NFL has stricter protocols and strict sanctions to help address the issue of cases in the league.
Sports leagues everywhere are trying to get a semblance of normalcy. Some leagues’s timelines have been interrupted, so it is difficult for them to resume their season. But some sports leagues are yet to begin, and they are trying their best to follow the initial schedule and timeline set for this season. Football is one of those sports, as the seasons usually do not begin until September.
If you want to be an online bookie, you have to make sure that you are all set up before everything gets busy again. It helps to know the schedule of the different sports leagues. The NCAA football is still on schedule, much to the relief of those who own a bookie pay per head operation.
