College Football Bowl Betting – Liberty Bowl Odds


College Football Bowl Betting – Liberty Bowl Preview The Arkansas Razorbacks could be the cat’s meow heading into next season, but that’s assuming a couple of things fall into place.

Head coach Bobby Petrino has done an excellent job of turning around this SEC program and if stud quarterback Ryan Mallett returns and the Hogs can with their bowl game, sports wagering experts will have to give this team a lot of respect heading into next season.

East Carolina has been excellent under head coach Skip Holtz and after leading the team to their second consecutive Conference USA title, they hope he sticks around.

This should be an interesting contrast of offense versus defense.

Arkansas Razorbacks vs East Carolina Pirates Odds ( Review): Arkansas -7.5

2009 Recap: Arkansas

The Razorbacks had a slow start to the season but as the mantra goes, it’s not how you start, its how you finish. On the strength of the highest scoring offense in the SEC – yes, higher than Florida – and a 4-1 finish, the Razorbacks are one of the hotter teams heading into the bowl season.

With Mallett leading the offense, the Hogs have a very potent attack. The defense is still a work in progress but teams that were not able to slow down Mallett this year usually ended up on the losing end.

2009 Recap: East Carolina

East Carolina didn’t have the season it had in 2008, but it was still good enough for a second straight Conference USA title. There were no stunners against West Virginia or Virginia Tech this year but it was still a solid year.

They had a disappointing loss to SMU early in the year but swept the conference schedule after that. Then they topped Houston in the title game, which landed them in the Liberty Bowl for a second straight year.


Internet sports betting cappers will see East Carolina play an SEC team for a second year in a row but it’s hard to imagine the results being any different.

East Carolina blew a big lead against Kentucky in the Liberty Bowl last year and this year they are playing a better team from the SEC. Arkansas is hot right now and while East Carolina has a decent defense, they haven’t beaten anyone elite this year (Houston doesn’t count).

Arkansas needs this win to spring board for next year and they’ll get it in emphatic fashion.

Sports Handicapping Pick: Arkansas -7.5

Manchester United very close to the Leader Chelsea


Manchester United very to close to the Leader ChelseaManchester United completed the process at the home of Hull City (1-3), second from bottom in the Premiership table, and capitalize on the blunder Saturday's Chelsea, who drew at Birmingham (0-0), to put the draft leadership of the English competition, which this weekend reached the nineteenth day.

The set of Alex Ferguson stood two points behind the Italian Carlo Ancelotti picture. A setback is paid dearly for this course. And the title fight intensifies also the presence of Arsenal, which beat Aston Villa (3-0) and, with a game that Chelsea and United, also threatens the first place.

Wayne Rooney was the architect of the victory of Manchester. The attacker was involved in all three goals for his team. He signed the first in time added in the first part, led to the second, which was introduced in Andrew Dawson own goal to break the tie set minutes before by Craig Fagan, penalty, and attended the Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov, who scored the third .

Earlier, Arsenal pulled out his duel against Aston Villa (3-0). The Spanish Cesc Fabregas signed a sublime performance at little less than half an hour he was on the lawn of the Emirates Stadium, which dazzled with his game and decided the Arsenal victory with two goals before getting hurt again and leave the field.

Book tickets for the French coach Arsene Wenger, Cesc jumped into the tapestry of the London court to 57 minutes in place of Denilson and debottlenecking the game for the Gunners.

Week 17 NFL Football Odds


NFL Betting – Week 17 Picks Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sportsbook Rating Odds: Falcons -1

There will be no playoff implications on the line when the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but there will be plenty of pride.

Both teams are focusing on 2010 and a win could end their seasons on a high note.

The Falcons franchise has never had back-to-back winning seasons but a win on Sunday would finish them at 9-7. For the Bucs, it has been a trying year but they have won two straight and could end the year on a high note with a three-game winning streak.

The Falcons are clearly the better team in this matchup. When healthy, they are a playoff contender and clearly without a healthy Matt Ryan or Michael Turner, they have slid down the ranks.

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay has been decent in the last couple of weeks but the difference has mostly been in taking advantage of other team’s mistakes. They have run the ball well and played mistake-free, for the most part, and simply taken advantage of teams that lost interest.

Atlanta is still playing hard for head coach Mike Smith and they will be up for this game. They are on the road but they have the better quarterback and the better offense. That should be enough to secure themselves a winning season.

Bet Jamaica Sportsbook Reviews Pick: Falcons -1

Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals

NFL Betting Lines: Cardinals -3

The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals will meet up in Week 17 and they very well could meet up in the first round of the playoffs.

The Packers and Cardinals are the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds in the NFC and with the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys – the No. 3 and No. 6 seeds – facing each other in Week 17 as well, the same games could occur in the first round of the playoffs if both Dallas and Green Bay lose or if both of those teams win.

Both the Packers and the Cardinals have clinched playoff spots but home field advantage in the first round could be very important.

The Packers home field is in the frigid temperatures at Lambeau Field whereas the warm, cozy confines at the University of Phoenix Stadium is a much easier place to play for the Cardinals.

The Cards have been in a swoon in December while Green Bay has been hot – look for that to continue.

NFL Predictions: Packers +3
