Many football teams are coming into the 2015 NFL season with high expectations. Some teams have been tagged with high expectations from the media and the betting public. But it’s fair to assume that all 32 sides have legitimate dreams of winning the Super Bowl. With the start of the regular season right around the corner, we take a look at one potential dark horse from each conference who could find themselves in, or possibly even winning, Super Bowl 50.
The chances of the New England Patriots winning Super Bowl 50 are surprisingly good, according to oddsmakers, for the 2015-2016 season. The "future" odds come with the shadow of “Deflategate” on Tom Brady and the convicted New England Patriots.
The latest odds for the new season have only slightly dipped, according to Bovada Sports Linemakers. The Patriots are still one of the top teams to win it all this year. The Green Bay Packers are the overall favorite at 6/1 odds followed by Seattle and then the Colts. New England, Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos are all 12/1 odds.
With only 30 days to go until the 2015 College Football Season kicks off, let's take a look at how the oddsmakers like the top school's odds to take home a championship this year.
How is your favorite team's odds to win the 2015-2015 Football Bowl Subdivision? According to the Bovada Sportsbook, a leader in College Football Futures odds, only 4 out of 128 teams have greater than 10 to 1 odds. Last years' champion, Florida State, opened up at +3300 after losing Jameis Winston to the NFL; but they've gained some steam since they acquired Everett Golson to replace him and now sit at 20 to 1 (+2000). As you probably know, Ohio State is the clear cut favorite with odds greater than 3 to 1 (+275). But who are the other three top rated College Football teams according to Bovada?
David Price won his first start as a Toronto Blue Jay on Monday Afternoon, in front of a sell-out crowd at the Roger's Centre. Price lasted 8 full innings as he threw 119 pitches and struck out 11. He struggled slightly in the first few innings, before escaping a bases-loaded threat and retiring the last 15 batters he faced.
Price earned his win in the bottom of the 5th when Toronto's other newly acquired star, Troy Tulowitzki, scored the go-ahead run on a two-run home run by Josh Donaldson. Tulowitzki is batting .353 with 2 Doubles, 1 Home Run, and 5 RBI in 5 games since joining the Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays are picking up steam at the betting windows as their chances to win the American League keep improving. Bovada Sportsbook has increased their odds and currently has them listed at +350 to win the AL East, +550 to win the AL Pennant and +1000 to win the World Series this year.
Week 1 of the 2015 NFL season is right around the corner, and the one thing everyone can’t wait to see is which teams will grace the field in Super Bowl 50. Of course the front-runners for this season are the same as the past three or four years, namely the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and the defending champion New England Patriots.
Sure, these four teams have the best shot at competing for the Lombardi Trophy come February, but there are 28 other teams that share that same goal—some having a better chance than others. Crazier things have happened in football, so here are five Super Bowl 50 Sleepers in no particular order:
With the NFL’s training camps just around the corner, this is how we envision things shaping up from the vantage point of mid-July. We give our perspective on 5 football teams that have put some key pieces to succeed this season, and discuss 5 football teams that will most likely end up with a worse record in 2015.
Keep in mind that we take into consideration roster changes, coaching changes, sheduling and divisional factors when selecting the top 5 most likely improved NFL Teams of 2015, and the 5 football teams that we envision most likely to fail to meet expectations.
Masahiro Tanaka – His Journey from Japan to the Bronx
Masahiro Tanaka was the most sought after player on the MLB offseason market in 2013-14. His signing with the New York Yankees instantly lowered the odds of them winning the AL and The World Series according to Bovada Sportsbook, the leader in Futures and Propositional Odds.
He is a 25 year old right handed pitcher who played for 7 seasons in the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) Pacific League for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. The NPB represents the pinnacle of performance on Japanese diamonds.
After being scouted by no less than 6 serious MLB suitors for his services it came as little surprise that he selected the New York Yankees as his team in America. Not only did the Bronx Bombers sign him to a 7 year $155 million dollar contract, they are also obligated to pay his former team in Japan a $20 million stipend for his rights.
SOCHI -- With the qualifications completed for the Quarterfinals, here are how the odds are currently stacked for this year's Olympic gold medal in men's hockey:
During the qualification games that took part on Wednesday, Slovenia was defeated 5-0 by Sweden, while Finland delivered the biggest upset of the day by beating Russia 3-1. Canada triumphed over Latvia is a highly contested 2-1 game, while the United States vanquished the Czech Republic with an easy 5-2 win.
Were the Yankees really better by bringing Masahiro Tanaka?
It seems Las Vegas think so.
According a gambling website "Bovada.com" The Yankees odds at winning the world series raised to 10-1 on Wednesday. In fact it's League's third highest.
It happened at the same day that Tanaka, of Japan, 25 signed a 7 years $155 million contract with team. Actually this deal has been the teams' fourth offseason big-money contract. The list also consists of Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann.
Finally the enrolling days is coming to the end and you can say that the 2014 college football season has really started, as spring practices are just a month away. Certainly It's not a college football season if you are not wondering who will strongly win the Heisman Trophy, Is it?
It's interesting to know that Bovada has up-dated its odds for the winner. The site's main board just consisted of 15 players but currently it's up to 23, featuring UCLA Running back/linebacker/destroyer of worlds Myles jack who powerfully checks in at 33/1.
