💰 NFL & NCAA Football are nearly upon us...rejoice! 🏈

Pick your Super Bowl 58 winner...

Do you smell that? Summer is in the tail end, the fresh grass is cut, and NFL and College Football are about to kick off. Hope springs anew for every team - and every sports bettor out there.

It seems like it was only yesterday that the Chiefs and the Eagles faced off in the Super Bowl.

Now it’s time to pick who will be the teams in Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas.

The Chiefs are favored - but can they go back to back?

Consecutive Super Bowl victories have occurred eight times in NFL history by seven different teams.

Teams that have won consecutive Super Bowls:

  • Green Bay Packers (Super Bowls I and II)
  • Miami Dolphins (Super Bowls VII and VIII)
  • Pittsburgh Steelers (Super Bowls IX and X; Super Bowls XIII and XIV)
  • San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowls XXIII and XXIV)
  • Dallas Cowboys (Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII)
  • Denver Broncos (Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII)
  • New England Patriots (Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX)

Odds are below:

Many things heating up going into Fall.

Here’s what we've got today:

  • NFL Preseason (Aug. 10)
  • NFL Fantasy Tip of the Day
  • NCAAF National Championship Odds and Early Matchups (Aug. 26)
  • MLB Daily Matchups (Aug. 9)
  • UFC Fight Night: Luque vs. Dos Anjos (Aug. 12)

NFL Preseason

We don’t necessarily recommend It, but we know you degenerates will bet on these games anyway. So here you have it - the NFL Pre-Season schedule and games.

Remember, these are preseason games, so coaches will rest starters, and game plans may be different than what we see in the regular season.

Nonetheless, these matchups should offer a great preview of the teams' depth and the young talent looking to make an impact.

The best bets are on teams where the backup quarterbacks are looking to prove themselves, or new notable quarterbacks or coaches are on new teams.

These include:

  • San Francisco 49ers vs. Las Vegas Raiders with Trey Lance and Sam Darnold vying for spots on the team. Also there’s the possibility that Jimmy Garoppolo will suit up as he new QB of the Raiders.
  • New York Jets vs. Carolina Panthers with Aaron Rodgers making his first appearance as the Jets QB.
  • Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals with Sean Payton newly at the helm of the team.

NFL Fantasy Tip

Ok, you’re drafting your team. You’re in the first round. Who do you take?

Common wisdom: Top RB, WR or Travis Kelce.

Top Target: Justin Jefferson

Jefferson was the clear top wide receiver last season, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

  • He led all wide receivers last season with 7.5 receptions per game for 106.4 yards and 21.7 PPR points.
  • He has achieved a 90.0-plus PFF receiving grade in all three seasons of his NFL career.
  • He recently turned 24 years old, so he’s still at a point in his career where he should be improving.
  • Among the elite wide receiver options, he has the best combination of great offense, offense and not as much competition for targets.
Possible Targets: Ja'Marr Chase, Christian McCaffrey, Austin Ekeler, Bijan Robinson, Travis Kelce

Who are you picking first in your fantasy draft?

New season, new hope.
