  • Lamar Jackson +1200

There is a much longer list, but for I am only going to cover the top six players. For the full list of odds, head over to SportsBetting.ag as There is a much longer list. 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 →

      After waiting for 45 years after his retirement, the Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is finally taking his rightful place as a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

      Discovered on the baseball fields of Cuba by a Minnesota Twin scout, Oliva came to the United States in 1961 and within three years the American League Rookie of the Year. There have been many great MLB players from Cuba, including a new generation of stars today, but it is hard to argue that there has been a better player from the island in MLB than Oliva.
