Sports Betting News

College football bettors will be keeping close tabs on the top five or six teams in the nation...

Las Vegas -

Just one word....RIHANNA!!!

CBS has the Thursday night franchise, and they're having problems. This matchup is kinda lousy, actually a dud, and if it wasn't for, YES, the POINT SPREAD, the ratings would drop faster than a bowling bowl in a sack of feathers. But the real BIG problem is NO RIHANNA! Can't tell you how much we were looking forward to Ri Ri and her opening, but CBS decided to scratch it. Ri Ri vs. Carrie Underwood on Sunday night? Are you kidding? Did you ever see Ms. Umbrella in a bikini??? If not, get your google glasses on and find it. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Oh yea, the game. Not thrilled about Atlanta, but very wary of the banged up Tampa side. The Bucs Pro Bowl defensive tackle, Gerald McCoy and middle linebacker, Mason Foster, could both be riding the pine. McCoy has a broken left hand and Foster left last Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. Not a good sign when facing an ATL offense that's averaging 438.5 yards, second best in the NFL. And to make matters worse for Tampa, MUCH better for the Falcons, Jake Matthews, the beast at left tackle, has been upgraded to probable. Matt Ryan LOVES him some Tampa. He is 5-1 as a starter against the Bucs at home, with seven TDs and no INTs. Gotta drop half a Benjamin on the Falcs at -6.5 points over Tampa.

It wasn't pretty, but the Braves managed to squeeze out a 3-1 victory over the Nationals last night and it was worth half a Benj. After pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1878 is the current figure.
