The on line sports betting experts will never forget Super Bowl XLV, but for all of the wrong reasons. First of all, the Super Bowl was held in Dallas but it was still slowed by an ice storm. But the ice storm was not Jerry Jones’ fault. Jerry Jones is the owner of the Cowboys and he also owns Cowboys Stadium where Super Bowl XLV was played. Jones sold thousands of tickets to seats that did not exist. He had crews working right up to kick off installing temporary bleachers where people who paid hundreds of dollars per ticket could sit. In the end, 400 fans did not have seats and another 450 paid thousands of dollars to watch the game with an obstructed view.
When the lawsuits were settled, the sportsbook agents started to wonder if Jerry Jones was good for the NFL. The Super Bowl XLV incident will be a black eye that may never go away. Jones has also been the center of controversy in Dallas as he refuses to hire an experienced NFL general manager and prefers to run the team himself. The Dallas Cowboys have not been competitive in years.
The top sports betting sites will admit that Jerry Jones paid for his own stadium construction and did not saddle the Dallas area with an outrageous bill. But Jerry Jones has also engaged in plenty of activities, such as driving up player’s and coach’s salaries to levels that small market teams cannot reach, that he is starting to cause a rift in the NFL. Jones may be the best owner for the Dallas Cowboys, but he is also a polarizing figure that could be very bad for the NFL.

The bet online sporksbook public knows him as Archie’s boy. He is a two-time Super Bowl champion, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, he has three pro bowl appearances and he has over 200 career touchdown passes. It isn’t Peyton, those are just some of the statistics of his younger brother Eli. Despite Eli’s success on the field, he does not command the same level of respect that his brother Peyton does. Eli is never included in the discussion of the great active quarterbacks, despite having numbers that put him in that club.
Can the sportsbook experts agree that Eli Manning is bound for Canton when his playing days are over? Despite his accomplishments, Eli is not considered to be a Hall of Fame quarterback by many fans and sportswriters. In his two Super Bowl wins, Eli played a pivotal role in securing the wins. He was not voted Super Bowl MVP by accident; he earned those honors with his play. But yet he still cannot gain the respect of the people who vote for the Hall of Fame.
A sports betting website review of Eli’s accomplishments makes it difficult to imagine that he will not be voted into the Hall of Fame when his playing days are over. He will eclipse 40,000 passing yards and 300 touchdowns by the time he is done playing. His stats and Super Bowl accomplishments will put Eli into the Hall of Fame someday. But his inconsistent play from one season to the next will always keep Eli Manning out of the discussions that involve the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game.

There have been many great players to grace the CFL. Unfortunately, very few of them are actually Canadian or played their whole career in the CFL. Many of the CFL’s best were either cut from an NFL team, or went on to become a starter on a NFL squad.
To begin, let’s talk about Doug Flutie. The man who made the miracle throw for Boston College, came up to Toronto to play the majority of his professional football career. He played eight seasons in Toronto before going to play in Buffalo where he played another eight years. In 1991 Flutie had an amazing 6,619 passing yards. Next there is the great receiver Milt Stegall. After a disappointing three years in the NFL, Stegall came to play in Winnipeg for 14 years. In one season he scored an amazing 23 touchdowns. He leads the CFL’s all-time leading receiver with 15,153 yards.
There are many great CFL players that were not mentioned here today. Between the two, Flutie and Stegall were the favorites of sports books, betting fans and bookies. Many other including Anthony Calvillo are also some of the CFL’s best.

The football betting crowd can be a fickle bunch. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls in his career, yet very few of the online football betting experts outside of New York would consider Eli a Hall of Fame quarterback. The preponderance of evidence supporting Manning’s induction into football immortality should speak for itself, but Manning is still not considered an elite quarterback and his position in Canton is not assured.
What about Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger? He is also a two-time Super Bowl champion that seems to get left out of the conversations involving today’s elite passers. But Roethlisberger seems to get a lot more respect from the 5dimes sports experts than Eli does. Does that mean that Ben should expect to have a bust in Canton someday?
The truth is that Eli Manning will probably be a Hall of Fame inductee five years after he retires simply because of the huge numbers he puts up year after year and his success in Super Bowl games. If Eli is a Hall of Famer, then so is Ben.
The one thing that may hold Roethlisberger back for a few years after his retirement is the rape allegations he had to fend off a few years ago. That sort of thing tends to turn the stomachs of the Hall of Fame voters. It may not be on the first ballot where he is eligible, but Ben Roethlisberger appears to be putting together a Hall of Fame career in Pittsburgh.

One of the differences between the CFL and NFL is the position of the goalposts. The CFL has them just behind the goal line, while the NFL has them at the back of the end zone. The change came about when the NFL decided to move them in order to increase the number of passing touchdowns and for player safety.
When America first started playing football the goalposts were in the same position as in the NFL. However, concerns grew over the safety of the receivers and safetys who were covering them. The chances of running into the goalposts are a very real issue that the CFL does see every now and then. Another reason for moving the goalposts was because the NFL wanted to see more passing touchdowns. With a smaller end zone than its Canadian counterpart, ma y touchdowns had to be run in. Now, with the goalposts put back it adds more space for the receivers.
There are many other reasons that could be discussed regarding the position of the goalposts. These are just two of the many reasons that are relevant to the history of American Football. The amount of passing touchdowns has changed the way bookies and sports books approach the betting aspect of the game.

The online football betting experts love to compare past Super Bowl champions and see which teams had the best players or the best coaches of all time. When you put Super Champions side by side, you start to notice a trend when it comes to elements that every championship team needs. Once the online sports book experts sit down and really examine an NFL champion, three essential ingredients start to become evident.
A Good Quarterback
A Super Bowl champion does not always need to have a Tom Brady or Joe Montana at quarterback, but the quarterback needs to fit the system and be reliable. The Baltimore Ravens has won two Super Bowls with quarterbacks that could be described as great game managers but not necessarily prominent passers.
A Great Defense
The 5dimes betting experts are willing to let the quarterback slide a little, but a Super Bowl champion has to have a great defense. Even the teams most noted for their offense could not have won their Super Bowls without their defense stepping up. When the Indianapolis Colts won the Super Bowl in 2006, it did so because of how well the defense was playing to compliment that strong offense.
A Smart Coach
If your favorite team gets outcoached in the Super Bowl, then it is not winning a Super Bowl championship. A good coach understands clock management and knows how to make the right personnel changes at the right times. A smart coach is also willing to take a risk, such as opening the second half of the Super Bowl with an onside kick.

Most new stadiums that are built are built in a dome, or with a retractable roof. How do NFL teams come to the decision to build their stadium with a dome roof? There are many factors that go into such a decision, but here are a few reason why they build a dome.
The weather plays a large point in the decision in building a dome. Places like Minnesota, Indianapolis and Detroit are all places that get extremely cold and do require a roof in order to comfortably seat their fans. Other cities such as Atlanta and Dallas also get very cold but also have domes because of the money involved in the project. Many new stadiums are designed to look beautiful and when built well, a dome makes for a better structure.
Today’s stadiums cost millions upon millions of dollars and domes help protect the stadium at large. Older outdoor stadiums carry tradition, but are not built as often as they were 40 years. Bet online reviews and sports books change their betting line based on whether or not the game will be played in or outdoors.

When you start to put together your betting system for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, you will start to hear the television analysts talk about a particular team’s record in the playoffs and apply that to the current team. The biggest mistake a football betting enthusiast can make when betting in the divisional round of the playoffs is to think that the historic record of a team means anything in the playoffs. When you bet on the divisional round of the playoffs, you need to worry about the current season and the trends that each team displays.
One thing that seems to ring true every season, especially in the divisional round of the playoffs, is that the team with the weaker defense always seems to struggle. As you prepare to bet online for the divisional round of the playoffs, remember that the matchups on each side of the ball are enhanced in the playoffs. The team with the marginal defense is going to have serious problems against the team with the powerful offense. It always seems to come to the surface in the divisional round.
Unless a dome team is playing in an outdoor stadium during the divisional round of the playoffs, home field advantage seems to mean little. In 2011, the Green Bay Packers finished the season at 15-1, but wound up losing its divisional round home game to the New York Giants. Never assume that, just because a good team is playing at home, that it has some kind of special advantage over the opposition.

There are many different factors that go into making a list of the three worst stadiums in the NFL. Everything from the weather, to price of a ticket, to the original intention of the stadium to parking. There are so many different aspects that go into building the worst stadium, here is a brief list of what I think are the three worst NFL stadiums.
The home of the Oakland Raiders is terribly dated and has not changed much since it opened in 1966. As the fourth stadium in the NFL it does not have the fancy technology found in most stadiums today. Luckily, in spite of the lousy stadium, the fans are absolutely wild and offer entertainment where the technology falls short.
Home to the San Francisco 49ers, Candlestick was original built only for baseball. The somewhat awkwardness of the seats, the lack of technology and the crowdedness makes seeing a 49ers game awful. With the success of the 49ers in recent years they could certainly afford a new stadium and should start looking at new sites for a stadium in the bay area.
The Metrodome that houses the Minnesota Vikings is according to many sports betting and non-betting fans alike as the worst stadium in the NFL. Even after the roof collapsed in 2010, there were not improvements made on the building. The lack of good stadium is prompting many to get the team to move to Los Angeles because as of right now, seeing the Vikings play at the Metrodome is more of a punishment than a good time.
There are a few other stadiums old and new that are lame. The best stadium would probably have to be Lambeau Field in Green Bay which is miles in terms of quality away from the three stadiums listed above. The lack of stadium can affect the home field advantage odds for many bookies and in general bring down the tempo of many games.

Online football betting experts spend years developing systems that help them to make accurate picks and generate money. As you can imagine, when you spend years developing a betting system, you will learn a lot from trial and error. The best football betting experts all have a list of basic rules that they follow which could help the football betting novice to improve his chances of making a profit.
Never Discount Conditions
Some bettors will ignore the effect that playing in an open air stadium can have on a team that normally plays in a dome because they feel that there is no advantage for either team. Statistics show that teams which play in a dome tend to struggle when playing outdoors in adverse weather conditions. A good bettor never discounts weather or other conditions that could affect the outcome of a game.
Home Field Advantage
Yes, home field advantage in the NFL is very real. In some cases, home field advantage could be that one thing that separates two very evenly matched teams. A good bettor will never ignore the effects of home field advantage on the outcome of any game. Some betonline experts would even suggest that, the more important a game is in the NFL, the more prominent the home field advantage effect will be.
Did your favorite team’s defensive line coach have to be hospitalized during the week because of a heart condition? Not only does that affect the team mentally, but it could also mean that the defensive game plan for the upcoming game will be incomplete. Pay attention to things that seem as though they may not swing the momentum of the game.
