I am only going to cover the top six players I consider worth betting on this season. If you are looking into getting to bet on NFL football we recommend this NFL Football Betting Guide as a great resource.

Saquon Barkley: +175

Barkley is no doubt an electrifying player. His first ever NFL touch was a 39-yard gainer. However, I don’t feel like he’s too great of a bet at not even +200. For one, he already has a hamstring injury. He’s expected to be back for Week 1, but that’s never something you want to see happen to a running back, even before the regular season starts.

Let’s also not forget that New York’s offensive line has been “rebuilt.” And, the early results, well, they don’t look so promising. Even the best backs need a strong offensive line in front of them. Let’s also not forget that Jonathan Stewart could steal some goal-line touches. Or, the Giants may opt to the throw more in the red zone. That might mean fewer touchdowns for Barkley. Let’s also not forget that this team is not supposed to be very good. That’s my case against Barkley and why I don’t think he’s worth a bet at +175. Read the rest of this entry →

      Rusty Staub

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former major league baseball player who came into the game as a teenager and stayed until he was in his 40s. In between, Rusty Staub put up a solid career that was primarily spent on expansion or rebuilding teams.

      Originally signed by the Colt .45s at age 17, he made his major league debut as a 19-year old rookie and became only the second player in the modern era to play in more than 150 games as a teenager.

      Though he hit only .224 splitting time between first base and rightfield, Staub did start building a foundation that would turn him into an All-Star by 1967 when he finished fifth in the league with a .333 batting average.
