    2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

    2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites Posted by Henry Watkins on August 18, 2016 For the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s timFor the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s time to forget about the successes of a few months ago, and time to start thinking about the large target on you back. Any team who has ever won a title will tell you that defending it is harder than winning it in the first place, simply because everyone else wants a piece of the champion. The Denver Broncos essentially won it all with superior defensive play last year, and the general consensus is that they are going to have to go about things the exact same way this time around, mostly because Manning is gone, and an adequate replacement isn’t really in place. While that is a pretty big problem to have, it pales in comparison to what is going on in San Francisco. The 49ers look like a total shambles, and with the NFC West looking to be stronger than usual this season, they could be in for a rough go of things. They are way down in the Super Bowl 51 betting odds, and I don’t see them doing much to change that as the season progresses.

    Why bet on the San Francisco 49ers

    It is beginning to look more and more like Blaine Gabbert is going to be the man in San Francisco 49ers, as Colin Kaepernick looks like a man caught in limbo at the moment. Kaepernick came very close to moving to Denver in the offseason, but a potential deal fell through, leaving him on something of a strange spot. Gabbert did very little to impress in a Week 1 preseason loss, going just 4-10 for 63 yards and a TD. 43 of those yards came on the TD pass, but it has to be said that he looked pretty shaky overall. Kaepernick did not feature at all in that game, a 24-13 loss to the Texans, and it’s going to be interesting to see if he gets any snaps in Denver.

    Why bet on the Denver Broncos

    There are a trio of QB’s in Denver looking to take the number one spot, and Mark Sanchez will have given himself a leg-up with his performance in Week 1 of the preseason. He went 10-13 for 99 yards and 1 TD, as well as 1 INT, in a 22-0 win for the Broncos. As good as that performance was, what really jumped out was the ability of the Denver defense to essentially shut down the Bears. Chicago were held to 146 yards through the air, and just 48 on the ground, and much of that was against the Broncos reserves. It’s early yet, but this is the kind of defensive domination that the Broncos showed off last year.

  • Newly Promoted Hull City

    Leicester takes on the newly promoted Hull City at the KCOM stadium.

There is a lot that still stands in Leicester’s favour, despite missing out on the Community Shield over the weekend in a 2-1 defeat against man Utd, as they have managed to keep key striker Jamie Vardy in addition to making some smart new signings. Leicester are favourites to take the first 3 points of the season at 11/10 with bet365 – add Jamie Vardy to score first for a more competitive price of 6/1.

Both teams have recruited well for the new season albeit with United’s at a much higher cost. United need a solid start after all the pre-season hype, Bournemouth may not be as easy as some would think with the side capable of producing some quality attacking football and as a result are 7/2 to take a home win albeit more like for the Manchester team to walk away with 3 points at 8/11 again with bet365.

    Add the above to an accumulator for odds of 3.35/1 at bet365 – enhance this even further using the Euro Soccer Bonus allowing for the opportunity of up to a 100% Bonus on accumulators on the top domestic leagues in Europe along with the group and knockout stages of the Champions League.

  • Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend Posted by Betonline Team on 5/25/2016 3:47:58 AM Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a cel

    Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a celebratory mood. They watched Exaggerator pull away from third place finisher and Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, spoiling his bid for the Triple Crown.

    However, near the celebration and cheers was a tragedy. Two horses were dead from earlier races and the only people that knew were race organizers and fans who got the news off their cell phones.

    Homeboykris, a nine-year-old gelding that ran in the 2010 Kentucky Derby, collapsed after having his photo taken in the winner’s circle after placing first in the opening race of the day. In the fourth race, four-year-old filly Pramedya collapsed on the track with a fractured left leg and was euthanized on the track. The long bone between the ankle and knee was shattered and there was an open would. Doctors determined surgery could not help the horse.

    Her jockey, Daniel Centeno, fractured his right clavicle after being thrown to the turf. The track was inspected after the fall but officials said everything was fine. There were no incidents reported on the muddy track during the Preakness.

    Those who do not like horseracing made stinging comments about how cruel the sport is. If Sea World is shutting down its whale exhibit and the Ringling Brothers Circus it’s elephant shows, then why not abandon horseracing?

    It is a silly argument but extreme comments are commonplace during the Internet era. Horseracing will live on because it is a multi-billion dollar industry. Race organizers called it a tragic day but the show must go on. Athletes have died on the field and courts in football, basketball and hockey, yet no one screams to shut those sports down.

    Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    “It’s deflating,” Sal Sinatra, president of the Maryland Jockey Club told the Baltimore Sun. “You try to figure it out, go through so many steps to make sure the horses are OK. Things do happen.”

    Roy and Gretchen Jackson are no strangers to putting a horse down. They also owned 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro who broke his leg during the Preakness two weeks later. They tried to figure out ways to save the horse but euthanized him later.

    “We haven’t fully digested the whole thing,” Roy Jackson said. “But life goes on.”

    Race experts estimate that deaths occur between one in 500 to 1,000 races, experts said. The Equine Injury Database said 31 horses died at Pimlico from 2009 to 2015.

    Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    Homeboykris was considered to be in good shape. He raced four times this season and reported no leg problems.

    Meanwhile, the Preakness was a great success. The race set an attendance record and drew a 6.2 overnight rating, up seven percent from last year. That boost can be attributed to Nyquist, who was trying to become the second horse in a row after American Pharaoh to win the Triple Crown.

    Nyquist trainer Doug O’Neill blamed himself for an aggressive start to the race, which seemed to wear him down. However, it appeared as if Exaggerator was coming on strip during the Kentucky Derby, but ran out of room to win the race.

    Now comes the rubber match on June 11 in Belmont, New York and the media is likely to play up a rivalry between the two horses although we doubt they have spoken to each other.

    “We have to play that up as horse racing aficionados,” said Exaggerator trainer Keith Desormeaux. “You lose a lot of luster after a Derby winner is beaten because the Triple Crown chance is annihilated. We have to play up the rivalry, I guess. Keep people interested. There’s no way it’s going to compare to American Pharaoh last year, but it’s going to be fun for those of us immediately involved.”
