New England Patriots Parade Live TV & Online Coverage For Super Bowl 2017 Champs

The New England Patriots are champions of the NFL once again! In an incredible comeback, the Patriots shocked the Atlanta Falcons 38-24 in what can only be described as amazing. Atlanta was on cruise control for most of the game, building what seemed to be an insurmountable 25 point advantage in the 3rd quarter. But as many sports fans have learned over the last decade you can NEVER count out a Tom Brady led team!

In the biggest come back in Super Bowl history, New England clawed their back into the game late in the 4th quarter and tied it up at 28-28.

The Patriots won the coin toss in overtime, marched down the field and won the game on a James White 2 yard plunge, giving New England their second championship in three seasons.

Brady was a one man show, especially in the second half. He ended the night throwing for 466 yards and two touchdowns. The run New England has had over the past 15 years is just incredible, and so is the way Brady seems to defy age. He looks like he could play for anther 3 to 5 seasons.

Now it is time to celebrate!

The Patriots 2017 celebratory parade will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 7th at 11 a.m. With millions expected to jam the streets, you had better get there early if you are planning on attending the festivities first hand!

If you aren’t headed to the big event, you can watch it live on TV or via online live stream feed.

The parade will be televised live on the NFL Network. It will also be streaming live online through nflonline.nfl.com. It is scheduled to get underway at 11 A.M. Eastern Time.

Congrats to the Patriots!

MLB Playoffs 2016: Live TV, Online Schedule, Printable Bracket and World Series Odds

The 2016 MLB playoff live TV and online schedule is finally set to go! It took all 162 games, but we finally know what teams will be facing off in the postseason as the run towards the Fall Classic begins. Like years past, every game will be aired on either ESPN, TBS, MLB Network or various FOX networks nationally. Also, every game will be aired on the radio through ESPN radio.

The full schedule has been released, however, the start times for the Divisional rounds and beyond won’t be determined until late Wednesday – due to the fact that it will all depend on who wins the Wild Card round games.

The only thing we know for sure as of Monday morning (Oct 3) is the AL Wild Card winner will head to Texas, while the NL Wild Card winner (Giants or Mets) will travel to Chicago to face the Cubs.

The Cubs are this year’s “World Series or bust” team.

Chicago came into the 2016 season as the overwhelming favorite according to most Las Vegas sports books. That hasn’t changed one bit now that the World Series odds for each postseason team have been released.

The Cubs are +250, or 2-1/2 to 1 win the title. Those are actually decent odds for a team that has been given the trophy by the media and public before the season even started. Behind the Cubs are the Rangers at +500 or 5/1, followed by a three way tie between the Nationals, Red Sox and Dodgers at +600, or 6/1.

If you like long shots, you may want to throw a few bucks down on the Giants, Blue Jays, Orioles or Mets. To have these teams at +2000, +1600 and  +1200 seems to be a bit on the high side. It’s only a ten team race, so it is a bit shocking to see the odds at such a tempting price.

NFL Week 4 Live TV, Online Schedule, Odds & ATS Picks

Week 4 of the 2016 NFL live TV and online schedule is on the horizon. It is hard to believe, but we are already at the first quarter mark of the 2016 season. For some teams it has been a great first quarter, however for others it has been a flat out nightmare!

The Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints have already been eliminated from the 2016 playoffs. Okay, that’s not true, however they are all 0-3 heading into Week 4 and history shows us that an 0-4 start means it is time to start planning for next season.

Since 1990, teams that start 0-4 have a 17% chance of making the postseason. That’s not good news for the Bears, Jags, Browns or Saints. They hope to defy those odds and not reach 0-4 by winning this weekend.

All four teams aren’t expected to get that first win according to Vegas odds makers.

The Bears are +3 vs, the Lions, while the Browns are a 9 point dog against the Redskins. New Orleans is getting three points at San Diego, and all the way across the pond in London, England, Jacksonville will square off vs. Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

On the positive side of the ball, Minnesota, Philadelphia, New England, Denver and Baltimore are all 3-0. The biggest surprises in that bunch have to be the Eagles and Vikings. Despite losing Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson, the Vikings look like the team to beat in the NFC North.

In Philadelphia, Eagles fans are loving rooking Carson Wentz.  Wentz has looked like a seasoned vet in his first three games and is definitely winning the first Half Rookie of the Year award.

Below is the Week 4 schedule, TV start times and odds.

NFL Week 3 Live TV, Online Schedule, Odds & ATS Picks

Week 3 of the 2016 NFL live TV and online schedule features a number of key games, including several 0-2 teams desperately in need of a victory. Sure it is still September, however starting the season 0-3 puts a teams odds of making the postseason in serious jeopardy. In fact the odds of a team turning things around enough to make the playoffs following a 0-3 or 1-4 start is 17 percent.

That’s not good news, especially if you are member of the Saints, Bears, Colts, Redskins, Jags, Bills, Dolphins or Browns.

All eight of these teams are sitting at 0-2, and the only team guaranteed not to be 0-3 Sunday night are the Browns or Dolphins – and that’s because they play each other in Week 3. Well, in theory they both could still have zero wins after their game – after all they could finish in a tie!

The Bears will be minus Jay Cutler when they take on the Cowboys, while the Browns will be without their starting QB Josh McCown in Miami. We look for both the Bears and Browns to lose this weekend here at Sports Odds Daily.

One game that stands out to us is the Steelers taking on the Eagles.

While Pittsburgh is always mentioned when it comes to winning division titles, the Eagles are playing better than expected so far in 2016, all thanks to rookie QB Carson Wentz. Wentz has looked pretty darn good so far in his first two games as a pro, however this weekend may be his toughest challenge yet.

Below is a glance at the NFL Week 3 TV schedule, latest Las Vegas odds and free selections. Our season record is 1-1 with the free selections.

NFL Week 1 Live TV, Online Schedule, Odds & ATS Picks

Are you ready for some football? The 2016 NFL season live TV and online schedule will officially get underway this Thursday evening with a Super Bowl 50 rematch between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. You can bet Vegas sports books will be jam packed this weekend. as the current king of all sports makes its return for a new season.

Week 1 will have some great match-ups, and a few twists and turns that should get the season off to an interesting start.  

The New England Patriots open on the road as a 6 point dog to the Arizona Cardinals. The Pats are rarely an underdog vs. anyone, however the four week suspension of Tom Brady has changed  many things in New England – including the betting odds!

Minnesota will be without QB Teddy Bridgewater for the entire season after an injury he suffered just days ago. Now this injury is huge, as in HUGE for the Vikings.  Minnesota has the talent to make a run at the NFC North title, however without Bridgewater it is going to be a tough road. Finally the Rams make their LA debut (part 2) when they face the 49ers on Monday Night Football. Will there be an over/under number on how many times the announcers say “Kaepernick – National Anthem?” Don’t laugh, there may be a prop bet out there.

As always, a new season brings new questions. This year the questions are flowing in by the boat loads.

Can the Broncos repeat as champs? They may with that great defense! Is this the year the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills finally live up to the hype and make a postseason run? Is Andrew Luck MVP material? Who will be the surprise team of 2016?  Can the Patriots win without Tom Brady? The list goes on and on…….

Take a deep breath fans, because that is just tip of the iceberg! As always, time will answer all these questions, however if you can predict some outcomes, you could make a nice little profit!

Last week the NCAA football schedule got underway, now it is the professionals turn to take center stage. As the weeks move on, we will provide NFL trends, odds and more. 

Below is a glance at the Week 1 schedule, Vegas odds, TV start time and ATS selections for this week.

Preseason 2016 AP Top 25 Poll: Alabama No. 1; Odds To Win 2017 NCAA Title

The release of the NCAA football preseason AP Top 25 has college football fans salivating for the start of the 2016-17 season. Well, you don’t have to wait long NCAA fanatics, because the season officially begins at the end of this week! California will take on Hawaii this Friday, August 26 at 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will air nationally on ESPN.

The preseason polls matter – and they don’t matter. It is all how you look at things.

The advantage of being a preseason Top 25 team is simple. If you run the table, or at least have a great start to the season, you can solidify your argument that you belong there. A perfect example of a team taking advantage of an early preseason ranking season is the Houston Cougars.

Houston is the No. 8 team in the land according to the AP, and a win over No. 5 Oklahoma in Week 1 would go miles for the program. A loss on the other hand may ruin the Cougars shot at an NCAA playoff berth later this season.  Sure one early loss shouldn’t be so devastating, however, let’s be honest, teams like Houston, Boise State and others never seem to get a “second look” by the pollsters like say an Alabama or LSU do.

It may not seem fair, but unfortunately in many cases it is the truth.

Nevertheless, here is your AP Top 25, along with the latest odds to win the 2017 NCAA championship.

Be sure to check back here at Sports Odds Daily, as every week we will have the Top 25 schedule, odds and all the TV and online infp –  along with a few free picks. You can click here for the most updated odds to in the 2017 NCAA title thanks to Vegas Insider.

2016 NFL Predictions, Division & Super Bowl 2017 Odds

It may only be August, but already NFL predictions are coming out as fans and Las Vegas gamblers are already day dreaming about Super Bowl 51. If you have interest in trying to predict the next NFL champion, and make some cash while doing so, right now is the best time to get in on the action. No matter what team you believe will win Super Bowl 51, now is the time to make an investment.

Every team is at great odds right now, including the favorites.

While all 32 teams are not equal,  there will be a team or two that will shock us all. Trust me, it ALWAYS happens. Last year the Carolina Panthers were listed at 40-1 to win Super Bowl 50 — and they almost pulled it off! Sure, it is always easy to say the Patriots will play the Packers in Super Bowl 51, after all they are the top two favorites on the Vegas odds board and they just so happen to be led by Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers – two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Sure, those picks look like a sure thing now, however, history will likely prove that those two will not be meeting in Super Bowl 51. So which long shots will be standing this January when the post season begins? Let’s break it down.

NFC East

  • Dallas Cowboys +120
  • New York Giants  +250
  • Washington Redskins  +350
  • Philadelphia Eagles  +500

Last year the Redskins won the NFC East, yet they aren’t getting much love from Vegas. Dallas has come in the past five years as “the team to beat in the East,” yet they never are. The Giants and Redskins are the beasts of the East this year, with Big D and Philly on the outside looking in.

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers  +150
  • Minnesota Vikings   +220
  • Chicago Bears    +1000
  • Detroit Lions      +800

Every year for seemingly a decade it is the same old story in the NFC North. Who will beat Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers? This year the North isn’t a gimme for Green Bay. The Vikings and Lions should be improved from a year ago and this division may not be decided until Week 17. Surprise! This North will be won by Minnesota – or Detroit.

NFC South

  • Carolina Panthers  -275
  • Atlanta Falcons +450
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers  +700
  • New Orleans Saints    +750

The South is clearly the Panthers’ to lose, However, never underestimate QB’s Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. They can take average teams and make them great.

NFC West

  • Seattle Seahawks -125
  • Arizona Cardinals  +175
  • Los Angeles Rams    +800
  • San Francisco 49ers  +2200

Seattle and Arizona are the class of the NFC West, and that shouldn’t change. The Seahawks have been so dominate at home over the past four seasons, the Cardinals will be playing for home field advantage starting in Week 1. Like a good horse race, the Cards and Hawks will be neck and neck down the stretch.

AFC East

  • New England Patriots     -220
  • New York Jets   +550
  • Buffalo Bills         +450
  • Miami Dolphins +850

J-E-T-S…JETS! JETS! JETS! Okay, I love saying that. They have no chance to win the East or make the AFC championship, but that chant is great. New England wins it again.

AFC North

  • Pittsburgh Steelers +100
  • Cincinnati Bengals   +180
  • Baltimore Ravens    +300
  • Cleveland Browns   +4000

My good friend Pete would bet big on the Browns if this were a horse race. You always bet the longest shot in a four-horse race. Pete has collected thousands that way. Well, this is the NFL, so if you happen to wager on Cleveland, please consider donating to charity first. That way your money actually will go to a good cause and not to a Vegas sports book. Pitt and Cinncy battle it out again for another crown. The Steelers win out in the end.

AFC South

  • Indianapolis Colts    +125
  • Houston Texans  +180
  • Jacksonville Jaguars  +300
  • Tennessee Titans  +1200

If the Colts stay healthy, they should win the AFC South, however Brock Osweiler is the X-factor. The Texans have longed for a reliable QB the past five seasons. They may have finally found him in Osweiler.

 

Denver rolled in Super Bowl 50. Can they repeat this season?

AFC West

  • Kansas City Chiefs     +160
  • Oakland Raiders    +200
  • Denver Broncos   +240
  • San Diego Chargers  +750

Denver +240 coming off of a Super Bowl win? With that defense, I will take my chance on another AFC West title. KC shouldn’t be the favorite.
