Last week we looked at three NFL coordinators who are new to their jobs and hold a lot of promise. We’re going to look at the other side of things this week – five guys who are on hot seats. All of them are in desperate need of a big year this year, and some of them probably shouldn’t have been given the chance they have been given this year. What they definitely all have in common is that we should keep a close eye on them and their units, because there is a pretty good chance that they are going to have problems:

NBA summer leagues are underway. They are being played in Orlando from July 5-9, and in Las Vegas from July 9-18. While they generally aren’t of much interest to fans, there are a few good reasons for NBA handicapping bettors to pay attention to the summer leagues. They aren’t likely to make or break your betting success during the regular season, but information is important, and there is lots of information to be gathered if you are looking for it. Here are four things to look for, and three things to be cautious of:
The head coaches get all of the attention in the NFL, but who they hire as coordinators has at least as much bearing on the on-field success of the team as their own performance. Coaches all have different styles, but for many teams the head coach acts as the CEO who oversees operations, and it’s the coordinators who actually work with the players, implement the strategy, call the plays, and have the direct impact on the outcome of games. The media tends to spend most of their time dwelling on head coaches, though, spending the limited coordinator time they do have on the high profile stars.

Here are three significant coordinator changes that you’ll want to consider as you prepare for this upcoming NFL season:

The defending champion had to face 16th-ranked Maria Sharapova and 9th-ranked Na Li in the fourth round and the quarterfinals respectively, but hasn’t faced any other tough opponents.
One of the biggest mistakes baseball bettors – and especially those who only play the sport casually – make is to only pay attention to the pitchers with names and reputations that they know when baseball betting. Sometimes starting pitchers with names don’t perform up to those names. More significantly, there are a lot of pitchers out there that casual fans have never heard of who are providing serious boosts to the wallets of fans. Here’s a look at eight guys who aren’t exactly household names, but who should be based on the profits they have been producing this year:
