Pre Season Football BettingWritten by Daniel B. King
So you want to bet Pre Season? Or maybe you don't! But betting on pre season football can be a profitable time for bettors.
The most common error is that, in betting terms, bettors treat pre season like regular season, when in fact they are two very different things.
Think about it - during regular season everything is on line, jobs, reputations - for players and coaches - their very existence.
During pre-season - nothing is really on line. The pre season is not about 'winning' really (for most coaches) it is about sorting out your team, it's about finding out who is best played where - players a coach intends using. It is a time for experimentation.
Even if a coach has a fair idea of who he wants to play and how he wants to play - why let on to opposing team?
Well there are occasions where a new coach might do this - some new coaches like to win to impress their owners and get off to flying start..
Time for Brown, Pistons to break upWritten by John Onan
This relationship has all plotlines of a soap opera, or Jerry Springer Show depending on your tastes. You have Casanova (Brown) who has been with all chicks (NBA and NCAA basketball teams). He falls in love a couple years back with newest fling (the Pistons). And it looks like he’s just about ready to settle down into a life of monogamy until young hottie in Daisy Dukes (Lebron’s Cavs) begin their flirtatious ways. But, after that would-be couple doesn’t come to fruition, legendary Broadway starlet (the Knicks) is soon waiting in wings to catch Larry Casanova on basketball rebound.
Okay, enough with dramatics. But, this whole Larry and Pistons saga have almost gotten this silly. Larry wants team to “wait for him” during his treatment for bladder problems. One day, it’s a crisis; next day, it’s not. If it’s not his physical condition, Larry is upset that team doesn’t “appreciate” him. And you wonder why I compare this to something you’d see on afternoon television, just no “baby mommas” and DNA tests, please. It’s time for these two sides to break up “mutually” on “good terms” on basis of “irreconcilable differences”.
Larry Brown gave Pistons what they wanted, and Pistons did same for Brown. Detroit is on top of NBA world, by winning Championship in ’04, and almost repeating in ’05. This squad has free agents to resign, young players like Darko Milocic to develop, and if this pissing match in public continues, Dynasty window in Detroit will begin to close much quicker than it should. It’s a testament to those players how well they stayed focused during Playoffs when Brown had one foot already out door.
