The controversy surrounding the NBA right now regarding illegal gambling by an official, brings a cloud over the industry of sports gambling. That will not affect us, though, as my time off this summer was long enough, and its time to get down to the business of how to make some money, and our first stop is NFL AFC Conference odds on teams to win their division.
We begin in the AFC East, where, of course, the odds makers have chosen the New England Patriots, with a price of -520. That means you must lay $520 to win $100. I don’t see that as much of a bargain, and since I’m in the business of making money, i like to take a shot with the Miami Dolphins at +800. Cam Cameron will revive this offense, and the Dolphins will compete for this division, so I’ll take my chances with 8-1 odds.
In the North division, the Ravens are a slight favorite at +140. After having a solid season last year, they could repeat, but the more likely scenario sees the Pittsburgh Steelers and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger having a bit of a rebound season, and at 2.5 to one, there’s good value there.
The South division has belonged to the Indianapolis Colts, who once again are the favorites at -350. If you must pick an upset winner from the remaining teams, i guess go with the star power of Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans, at +1400.
The West will be one of the toughest divisions in the league once again and the San Diego Chargers are the favorite here at -160. The Chiefs have lost their starting quarterback, and star running back Larry Johnson plans to sit out training camp over a contract dispute, so for no justifiable reason at all, i take a shot with the Chiefs at +650.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a preview of the NFL’s NFC Conference, in which odds have been thrown into a tizzy due to the recent indictment of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.
