We’re closing in on the 2010 college football season and it is time to look for some dark horses in the field of teams vying for the BCS title. With Alabama the heavy favorite, here are some teams that are long shots that could offer some value with their current odds. All betting lines are taken from Bodog and Pinnacle.
After a one week break, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series heads to Indianapolis for the Brickyard 400. The track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway stretches over 2.5 miles and is a tough race track for all drivers making Brickyard 400 betting a difficult proposition. The course is very flat and slick and we will see cars sliding all over the place as they are getting very little grip. The Brickyard 400 seems to have a special place in the Sprint Cup Series, as eight of the last 16 winners have gone on to win the championship title at the end of the season.
One of the great things about college football betting is that we can never really know how good teams are, and how strong their conferences are, until the season starts. The turnover of players every year means that young players always play key roles, and we can’t know how they will handle them until they are tested in the heat of battle. Until the first couple of games are history everything we think about the sport is pure speculation. Luckily, speculation is a whole lot of fun. As we sit well under two months form the start of the season here’s how I rank the six major conferences based on their perceived strength:
The 2010 Miami Heat roster looks a lot better than just a week ago and the NBA betting odds and season win totals have been adjusted. The Big three signed their contracts, with Dwyane Wade surprisingly getting the least money. Udonis Haslem decided to take less money than other teams were offering and stay in South Beach.
We will have a first time World Cup champion this year. Neither Spain nor the Netherlands have hoisted the trophy in their nations’ history, but one of them will change that Sunday. We will also see a European team win the World Cup outside of Europe for the first time.
Joachim Loew’s young German team was outmatched in its semifinal against Spain. They fought hard on defense, but someone left Carles Puyol completely unmarked on his header that sent Spain to its first ever World Cup final.
Wednesday’s semifinal game features a rematch of the EURO 2008 final, in which Spain beat Germany 1-0. Fernando Torres scored the goal in the 33rd minute at Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna, Austria.
The Netherlands shocked five-time champion Brazil and rallied from a 1-0 deficit to advance to the semifinals. Brazil cracked open the Dutch defense early in the game and took the lead only ten minutes into the contest.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup returns to Daytona this weekend for the Coke Zero 400. The series opened their season at Daytona in February with the Daytona 500, and Jamie McMurray won the race ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Greg Biffle. Chevrolet had seven cars in the Top 12.
