Tipping off at 8PM Eastern Time over ESPN it will be game one of the doubleheader as Lebron James will lead the World Champion Miami Heat into Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks. Miami following their ring ceremonies gets their mind on business and pound the Boston Celtics on opening night by the score of 120-107 as a -6 ½ point home favorite. The Heat offense was on fire as the team shoots over 54% from the field and 50% from the three point line to crush the Celtics. On a negative note for Miami they did allow Boston to shoot for 52% from the floor as the Celtics tally up 107 on the Heat defense. Former Celtic Ray Allen was the sixth man off the bench for Miami and he logged in 30 minutes and contributed with 19 points on 5 of 7 shooting from the floor. Miami’s other newcomer Rashard Lewis played nearly 19 minutes and contributed with 10 as the veteran hits on 4 of his 5 shots. The Heat did a good job of drawing fouls as they attempt 32 free throws. The New York Knicks had a shot to get the spotlight back on this franchise as it’s competed with the New York Giants and New York Yankees for popularity. The team makes a public relations snafu by failing to resign Jeremy Lin and the Knicks return to the back page in NYC sports.

Game two of the ESPN TV doubleheader begins at 10:30PM Eastern Time as it’s the battle of LA as the LA Lakers will be the home team facing off against Chris Paul and the LA Clippers. The Lakers opening night was a miss for the team as they get beat by a shorthanded Dallas Mavericks team 99-91 as a -8 ½ point favorite. LA misses 12 of 32 free throws. The Clippers welcome a healthy Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to the lineup as the pair faced injury rehab during the summer.

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Those wagering on the San Diego Chargers on the money line will lay –360 odds. Bettors who believe the Kansas City Chiefs can venture into San Diego on Thursday and get a win can get back +300 odds for their bet on the money line.

Both teams are desperate for a win on Thursday night as Kansas City has lost four straight and the Chargers have dropped three straight. San Diego has missed the playoffs in two straight seasons and suddenly finds themselves one game behind the first place Denver Broncos in the AFC West. San Diego is just 1-2 straight up on their home field. The Chargers offense has sputtered and continues their downward slide once Darren Sproles was allowed to walk in free agency. The team ranks just 25th in the league in total offense and 18th in points scored. Phillip Rivers came off a bad 2011 season and in 2012 he has failed to find his once great form. River his hitting on 64% of his passes with ten touchdowns and nine picks. The Chargers defense has limited opponents to only 20 points a game ranking tenth in the league. Kansas City has talent on both sides of the football and at 1-6 has to be the most disappointing team in football. It is incredible that a team that runs for 155 yards per game and has the third best run game in the league be so bad on the field. The answer is simply turnovers as the Chiefs average 3 ½ giveaways per game. Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel is completing nearly 60% of his passes with six touchdowns and ten picks.

San Francisco 49ers versus Arizona Cardinals NFL Pro Football Betting Preview

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Monday Night Football will be a battle within the NFC West division as the San Francisco 49ers off some extended rest will travel to face the Arizona Cardinals on October 29th. The 49ers and Cardinals will begin from Arizona at 8:30PM Eastern Time and you can watch this pro football game live over ESPN TV.

Those who wager on the favored 49ers on the money line will lay -320 odds. Bettors who believe the Arizona Cardinals can pull out the straight up win at home tonight on Monday Night Football can get back +260 odds for their wager on the money line.

The San Francisco 49ers sit atop the NFC West with a record of 5-2. They last played on Thursday Night Football at home where they defeated the Seattle Seahawks 13-6 as a -7 ½ point favorite way back on October 18th. They have a good ten days to prepare for this NFC west divisional battle with the Cardinals. Something lacking for San Francisco in their past two games has been offense. The team has scored just 16 points over their past two games. Quarterback Alex Smith has struggled against teams with a good pass rush as the 49ers have been beaten soundly this season by the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings. So at issue for the 49ers will be to protect Alex Smith and that could be difficult inside the Arizona dome where the crowd produces a great deal of noise making it tough for opposing offenses. Arizona is the sixth best defense in the NFL surrendering just 312 yards per game. Under center for the Cardinals on Monday Night Football will be John Skelton. The Cardinals signal caller engineered an Arizona victory last year at home as they hosted the San Francisco 49ers by the score of 21-19 as a +3 ½ point underdog. After falling behind 19-7 the Cardinals score two unanswered touchdowns to rally for the win. They cut it to a one possession game as John Skelton hits Larry Fitzgerald for a 46 yards touchdown pass. Then Skelton throws a fourth quarter touchdown pass for the game winner.

New Orleans Saints versus Denver Broncos NFL Pro Football Betting Preview

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Bettors who believe that the road underdog New Orleans Saints can go into Denver and come away with a straight up win can take back +225 odds for their wager on the money line.

After starting the season at 0-4 the New Orleans Saints are trying to recover a bad start with two straight wins as they stand at 2-4 entering Denver. The Saints defense has performed poorly all season as they are 32nd in total yards allowed at 465 yards per game. If there is something positive to say about this Saints defense is the fact they have not allowed more than 28 points to their past three opponents. If they can hold Denver to 28 or less points on Sunday night football they can be in this game. Drew Brees has engineered the league’s best passing attack as the club pushes across 335 yards through the air per game. Problem is they haven’t run the ball very well as the Saints rank 32nd and last in the league with 76 yards a game. Denver is only 3-3 on the season and will come off their bye week. They averted a 2-4 record by overcoming a 24-0 first half deficit two weeks ago in a 35-24 road win at the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football. Quarterback Peyton Manning is completing nearly 68% of his passes with his new team with 14 touchdowns and four picks. Manning’s favorite target in the passing game has been Demaryius Thomas who has 32 catches for nearly 17 yards per catch average to go with his three touchdowns.
