NFL: Taking a Look at the Best Quarterbacks Today

Posted on July 02, 2020 by Selwyn DuPlooy

Even though there hasn’t been any football yet this season, it is still important to remember who the big guns are at quarterback. Currently, there are some incredible players in the pivotal position, these QB’s, they can win games and bets. This list will name the best ones currently playing. 

Tom Brady

Even though Tom Brady has left the Patriots, and will most likely see his career put at the Buccaneers, he is still definitely one of the best quarterbacks playing right now, his record and stats prove it each and every season. 

Even though he’s been on the decline the past couple of seasons, his new position at Tampa, and being able to link up with incredible playmakers, and Gronk of course, will hopefully get him back in the swing of things. 

He may not be the same giant on the field anymore, but being able to play with great playmakers will allow him to show off his skill and precision again, and have the team mates that can use the service he provides. 

Matthew Stafford 

Stafford was well on his way to having an incredible season in 2019 before injury took him off the field. At the time of his injury, he was second in touchdown passes, and fourth in yards per attempt, strong numbers for the Lions QB. 

Like Brady, Stafford is going to be surrounded with team mates that can turn his passing and throwing prowess into yards and points, and he will be playing in a system that will allow him to express himself on the field. 

As long as he can stay healthy, and his RB’s and WR’s perform, Stafford can easily pick up where he left off before injury scuttled his season last year. 

Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson is a strange case because he is the best of a bad bunch. The Texans don’t have the best defensive line at all, and Watson has been sacked too many times to count, but he led the Texans to 3-3, and without him, they went 1-9. 

As a rookie, he was sacked 62 times, but still managed to complete 63% of his passes for over 4,000 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. He is a diamond in the rough, and if his team gets their act together, he can very easily be one of the best QB’s in the upcoming season.

A Look At Sports In 2020 And What’s To Come

Posted on July 02, 2020 by Alina Jovia

There is simply no denying that 2019 was an exceptional year for sports and sports betting. Heck, this is something that you could say pretty much every year. It seems like the bar only continues to rise every year. That being said, 2020 promises new experiences with many upcoming major events and tournaments. Even with the COVID-19 virus out there looming, there are still some great events on the ticket and many past events that fans can reminisce about. 

 If you are a betting person, you can take a look at some of the best odds here.

Take a look back at what the New year has brought fans so far and what it still has to offer going forward.

The Return Of The Notorious

The start of the year had high hopes, as McGregor, a born fighter, was slated to get back in the octagon in the first month of the year. He didn’t officially throw a single punch in the octagon in 2019, and it was certainly a poor year without him. 2020 immediately promised to change that as they had him scheduled against Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone at the start of the year. This match held for high hopes given the fact that boy men were not afraid to stand and trade. And, the fight as UFC 246 wasn’t a bad one for as long as it lasted. It would be safe to say that this fight lived up to the hype and made a promising start for the year in sports.

5 Surprise Health Benefits of Being Short

Posted on June 27, 2020 by Zeeshan Khan

Were you tired of not getting new clothes in your growing age for being short in height? Were you often bullied by your classmates because of your height? My question here is why to take the stress of things that are not in your hands? Rather one must recognize the positive aspects of such so-called“flaws”. The word “flaws” here does not justify reality. In the sight of God, there is no one short or tall, white, or black. He loves and rewards one whose morals are the best. One must accept the reality and bow before God’s will. His every creation, we find flaws and virtues, advantages, and disadvantages. This general health blog like Huffpost is very useful where you will find some very surprising health benefits of being short:

Soccer is Back on a Global Scale

Posted on June 25, 2020 by John Harris

While most team sports in the United States are just getting started on the path back to competition, soccer (known as football to the rest of the world) is back in full swing. As can be expected, football betting is also back on track as the competition heats up.

Though there are still more games left to be played, Liverpool has already staked their claim as the English Premier League Champions with a record of 28-2-1. Given the impressive record, some are wondering if this Liverpool squad ranks among the greatest teams in Premier League History. However, the season disruption due to COVID-19 certainly makes it a bit hard to compare this season to other past campaigns.

Bill Connelly from ESPN did a great job ranking the 27 previous Premier League seasons to identify the greatest champions in league history.

While the Premier League season is nearing conclusion, there is still a lot to be decided including Champions League and Europa League spots, the fight for relegation and the FA Cup.

Betting Tips For Beginners

Posted on June 16, 2020 by Bijoy Hembram

Before you start placing a bet on sports, you should think about the money being put at risk then come up with a budget and ensure you adhere to it. Also, acknowledge the fact that your chances of losing as a beginner will always be high. This is almost the same as playing football with your friends using a portable mini soccer goal – there are losers and winners.

Here are some factors to consider as a betting beginner,

  1. Analyze the game

Before placing any bets, it is advisable to take time in analyzing the team and player match day buildup. Listen to the pundit’s opinions about the match squad and check to see the form of each player. This knowledge will be essential to your betting plans.

  • Work on a budget

A beginner should have a budget that he/she should strictly stick to. Set aside a certain amount as your monthly betting stake to prevent you from overspending during betting. There is nothing wrong with losing a bet but it will become one, once you start losing a lot of it.

  • Favorites vs underdogs

When the odds’ maker releases a betting line, they decide which team has higher chances of winning and which one has lower chances thus the terms favorites and underdogs. The one with higher chances of winning will have fewer odds than the underdogs

How Are Football Stadiums Going To Look Post Pandemic?

Posted on June 15, 2020 by John Harris

The Coronavirus pandemic has left us all in shock. As much as it has caused harm to the lives of thousands of people, it hasn’t done any less damage to various sectors of our economy. The entertainment sector, especially the sports world, is facing a massive set back because of the infamous horrors of COVID-19. If we talk about Football mainly, the loss is immeasurable.

Empty for a few months 

It is well known to everyone that the current situation around us doesn’t permit traveling for our own sake. Stepping out of the house these days is nothing short of a challenge. We barely go out to buy essential commodities. Now, if we talk about football stadiums, it is pretty much evident that they are going to be empty for quite a while now, given the pandemic. Even after it is over, which doesn’t seem to be happening any sooner, people will shy away from going out to watch matches. Large gatherings of people are not allowed, anyway. So, fans will have to make do with viewing live matches on television until we are given further notice.

  • Vintage Athlete of the Month

    • Rocky Colavito: Super Slugger
      March 30, 2020 | 7:24 pm
      Rocky Colavito

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was just the fifth player in Major League Baseball history to have 11 straight seasons with 20 or more home runs, yet could not sustain that greatness long enough to earn a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

      In some sense, the legend of Rocco “Rocky” Colavito Jr. began long before he ever started pounding home runs at the major league level.

      Born and raised as a New York Yankees fan in The Bronx, Colavito was playing semipro baseball before he was a teenager and dropped out of high school at 16 after his sophomore year to pursue a professional career. The major league rule at the time said a player could not sign with a pro team until his high school class graduated, but after sitting out for one year, Colavito was allowed to sign at age 17.
