Betting tips on the NFL AFC League

Most NFL fans will be eagerly awaiting the start of the new season, while watching to see what strengthening their side does during the close season, but with the pre-season odds having been available from bookmakers for quite a while now, the futures betting has already kicked off. Alongside betting on Super Bowl futures, NFL […]

Bengals Draft Preview

  It’s like Christmas in April. Yes, I love the NFL Draft far more than the average human should. The 2013 version of the draft kicks off Thursday with the first round. Rounds 2-3 will follow on Friday and the proceedings will conclude on Saturday with rounds 4-7. (Is this a good time to mention […]

2013 Reds’ Record Prediction, Roster, Lineup, Etc.

  The Cincinnati Reds won a whopping 97 games last year and expectations are even higher entering the 2013 season. While I have no doubt the Reds are a better team, I don’t think they’ll reach their win total of last season. A lot went right for them during the 2012 regular season when they […]

Reaction To Chapman Decision

  Aroldis Chapman turned in one of the best seasons by a closer in MLB history last season when he saved 38 games (in 43 opportunities) struck out an amazing 122 batters in 71.2 innings, had an ERA of just 1.51 and a WHIP of merely 0.81. Interestingly, the only season by a closer since […]

Top-20 Reds Prospects

With the 2013 Major League Baseball season nearly upon us, let's take a look at one man's opinion on who the top-20 prospects in the Cincinnati Reds organization are and why. Note: prospect means they're still considered a rookie by MLB standards or are still in the minors. Top 20 Reds Prospects 1.      Billy Hamilton […]

Gruden, Zimmer Sticking Around

Wanted to toss a quick post up for those who might have missed it: Despite there being a whopping eight head coaching vacancies filled around the NFL, none of said jobs went to Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden or defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. This is absolutely huge because while I think Marvin Lewis is […]

Things Fall Into Place Nicely For Bengals

Well, so much for having to deal with playing at New England in the first round of the NFL playoffs. And no one is saying playing at Houston is easy — the Bengals know that as well as anyone after getting waxed by the Texans in the opening round of the 2011 postseason. However, the […]

Bengals Playoff Bound, Despite Odd Decisions From Lewis

The Cincinnati Bengals have made the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 30 years and that should be the main story. And it is. But just barely. It’s simply hard to get over the mind-blowing decisions of head coach Marvin Lewis during the Bengals’ 13-10 win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh on […]

Bengals 3.5-point Dogs In Playoff ‘Play-In’ Game

If we were doing the “confidence points” thing that is popular in college bowl pools – from 1-10 with 10 being the most confident I could possibly be about the Bengals beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh this Sunday … I would go with a 3.5. I don’t think it’s some insurmountable challenge – the 2012 […]

Bengals ‘Win Ugly’ In Philly

Is it possible to play poorly through almost an entire game on the road in the NFL, be losing at halftime and still emerge with a comfortable 34-13 victory? Of course it is, when your opponent is the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles. That’s who the Bengals were thankfully up against on Thursday night and Cincinnati came […]

Choo Deal Official

According to multiple media outlets, the deal sending Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald to the Cincinnati Reds for Didi Gregorius and Drew Stubbs is now official. We won’t know for sure for a long time, but this appears to be a coup for Reds general manager Walt Jocketty, who has been very active early this […]

Reds On Verge Of Landing Choo

The Reds are on the verge of a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians that would bring outfielder Shin-soo Choo and utility infielder Jason Donald to Cincinnati in exchange for CF Drew Stubbs and shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius. Choo will be a free agent after the 2013 season and will make roughly $7.5 million via […]

Bengals On A Roll; In Thick Of Playoff Race

Hey, it’s one of those times I’m thrilled to be wrong. I thought the Bengals were among the “walking dead” of NFL teams this year when they had a 3-5 record. But suddenly they’ve won three straight — all in blowout fashion — and are tied with the Steelers at 6-5 and for the final […]

Bengals 4-5 After Impressive Win Over G-Men

Time to give credit where it’s due. I’ve been tough on the Bengals this year. Brutal. But here they were with their backs against the wall and they responded with an improbable 31-13 dismantling of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants in Cincinnati on Sunday. The Bengals dominated this game from start to […]

Bengals’ Struggles Should Come As No Surprise

Remember all those improvements the Cincinnati Bengals made during the offseason, addressing glaring needs? Of course you don’t; it never happened. It was obvious to everyone who follows the team that the Bengals needed a serious upgrade at safety. Reggie Nelson was fine at one of the spots (although he hasn’t played well for the […]
