Eric Gargiulo presents Sports Betting Tips ? Fade the Kentucky Wildcats…Sort Of posted at, saying, "While most people are focused on the Super Bowl odds while the NFL betting season winds down, most people haven't noticed what the Kentucky Wildcats have been able to accomplish with new head coach John Calipari."
Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Betting – Wednesday Night Parlay posted at, saying, "Sacramento Kings at Atlanta Hawks - The Kings recently got SG Kevin Martin back from injury. They are trying to play rookie sensation Tyreke Evans and Martin at the same time, although Evans appears to be more of a 2 guard himself rather than a 1. They have not meshed yet and until they do, if they do, I will bet against them. The Sac Kings are 3-16 on the road and have no way to matchup with Josh Smith, Marvin Williams and big Al Horford. I expect a lot of turnovers by the Kings and a blowout along the lines of 92-71. I would take the Hawks and the under in this game regardless of what it is."
Eric Gargiulo presents When The Trade Deadline Hits Your Eye…That’s Amare posted at, saying, "Steve Kerr has said that the Phoenix Suns are increasing their efforts to trade away Amare Stoudemire in exchange for some young talent and some good role players. Also in Kerr’s thought process is freeing up the cap space brought on by Stoudemire, who is making $16.3 million this season and is scheduled to make $17.7 million next season. According to sources, teams on all levels have shown interest, from bottom dwellers to playoff teams to championship contenders."


Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: You pulled a fast one Lane Kiffin! posted at, saying, "When news broke on Tuesday night that Lane Kiffin would be leaving the University of Tennessee for the University of Southern California to become the new head coach there, only one thing ran through my head right away, wow Al Davis was right. This was the same Lane Kiffin that 14 months ago was passing his kool-aid to everyone at the University of Tennessee that he was going to turn the program around and more importantly beat the might Florida Gators. Now 14 months he, as Dennis Green would probably say, “is what we thought he was.”"
Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Divisional Playoffs Preview and Picks posted at, saying, "The New Orleans Saints host the Arizona Cardinals this weekend in what looks to be the most entertaining game of the post season. These are two teams that can put up 21 points each without even blinking. Kurt Warner and the Cardinals’ offense looked unbeatable last week. As great as his performance was last week, Warner has been money in the playoffs for most of his career. Kurt Warner is 9-3 in the post season with three Super Bowl appearances. The pressure of going into a hostile situation is nothing new for this future Hall of Fame quarterback."
Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Divisional Playoffs Recap and Thoughts posted at, saying, "We are two rounds and eight games down in the NFL playoffs. Once again the NFL saved a weekend of lackluster games with a fantastic Sunday finale. Who would have thought that the San Diego Chargers and the New York Jets would provide the most intrigue on a weekend that featured the New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, and Indianapolis Colts?"
Eric Gargiulo presents Can the Jets be Super Bowl bound? posted at, saying, "The New York Jets have become everyone’s favorite Cinderella story to the NFL’s worst nightmare. They have put the remaining three other teams on notice as they will be entering the AFC Championship game this Sunday against the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts. It’s the playoffs and anything can truly happen now. The New York Jets are becoming America’s favorite underdog as they continue to strike fear in their opponents’ game after game."
Eric Gargiulo presents Is The Cleveland Browns Future In The Eagles’ Hands? posted at, saying, "As I always say sports fans, be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. The rumor mill is swirling with scenarios in Cleveland, and alot of it is focused on what the Eagles have at QB. As you know, Former Eagles GM Tom Heckert is now holding that position with the Browns, and according to rumors he and new "Prez" Mike Holmgren are looking for a radical change."
Chris presents Get off the Carousel posted at FootballBlitz.
Eric Gargiulo presents NFL Conference Championship Games Recap posted at, saying, "Finally, an entire weekend of games in the NFL postseason lived up to expectations. For at least three quarters, the AFC championship game turned out to be one of the most exciting games in NFL conference championship history. Not even four quarters could decide the NFC Super Bowl representative. For the first time in sixteen years, two number NFL one seeds will play in each other in what will likely be the most hyped game in Super Bowl history."
Jake presents Why Professional Sports are Destroying Your Life posted at Your Best Weekend, saying, "Join me in boycotting the Superbowl!"
Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: Ah, there he is! posted at, saying, "I like everyone else was left in disbelief Sunday night as the Minnesota Vikings were making one last drive down the field in the Superdome. With a little over two minutes to go Brett Favre was driving down the field setting the Minnesota Vikings up for there very first appearance in the Super Bowl. This is one of the reasons why Brett Favre went to Minnesota. To beat the Green Bay Packers and to win a Super Bowl in Minnesota, to prove everyone wrong that this 40 year old Quarterback that retired and unretired multiple times, could still do it."
FavreDollarFootlongs presents The Adolescence of a Sports Fan posted at Favre Dollar Footlongs, saying, "The column discusses how we change as sports fans from when we used to just enjoy watching any sports as a kid into our complete fanatic state as adults."
Eric Gargiulo presents Inside The Wheelhouse: NFL Championship Weekend Thoughts posted at, saying, "Did Boomer Esiason die? I was watching him on the air yesterday and wondering who was the corpse, him or the person applying his makeup. He looks like weekend at Boomer's. Dude we know Carton is grating as hell but geez, Boom. You look like an old southwest ad "want to get away""


Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Betting – Stanley Cup hopefuls meet in Washington posted at, saying, "Detroit Red Wings vs Washington Capitals betting – Tuesday, January 19, 7:00 PM ET. The Red Wings have lost three of their last four, one of which was a 6-0 humiliation at the hands of the Islanders in New York, and then two shootout losses to Dallas and Chicago. Jimmy Howard is still getting used to being a No.1 goaltender in the NHL, especially on a team with such high expectations to NHL betting players, but the Red Wings have been inconsistent in front of him. Not that players like Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Nicklas Lidstrom, have been terrible, but they haven’t dominated as they have in recent years."
Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Tuesday Preview: Devils vs. Senators posted at, saying, "While most of the betting focus being on Super Bowl odds and NFL picks after Championship Weekend, many are overlooking key matchups in the NHL. The NHL season has just past its mid-point and the games now have more serious implications in the standings and some preview possible playoff matchups.
This Tuesday night one such matchup is taking place as Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils travel up to Ottawa to take on the surging Senators."


Cheryl Ragsdale presents Dana White Predicts Growth in Female Fan Base “Girls Who Watch UFC are Hot…” - The Sports Chat Place posted at Sports Chat Place, saying, "To set the record straight, I would like to introduce you to female fans who love MMA – what we look like and what we sound like. Because it’s so unusual, why don’t we just let a woman explain her fascination with mixed martial arts. I went on line and googled female UFC fans and the only thing that popped up that looked interesting was UFC Fighter, Frank Mir’s website Frank gets it. He posed a question and several female fans responded. Here’s one woman’s response..."
Rod presents 7 Tips to avoid becoming a victim of crime in South Africa posted at South African Holidays, saying, "With the recent tragic events surrounding the Togo team at the African Cup of Nations in Angola, should we be worried about travelling to the FIFA World Cup in South Africa later this year? Here are some tips for staying safe in South Africa."
Eric Gargiulo presents Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione Rumored For UFC 113 posted at, saying, "UFC will move forward with one of its biggest ratings draws of 2009, Kimbo Slice. After winning his first UFC fight at the TUF Finale, Kimbo Slice is now rumored to face another fighter from The Ultimate Fighter 10. Conflicting reports indicate that Kimbo Slice’s next opponent will be the “brain rattled” former NFL player, Matt Mitrione at UFC 113."
Aaliyah Williams presents 11 Ways You Can Go to Sports Events for Free posted at Masters in Sports Management, saying, "You don’t have to climb a tree and risk a limb to watch sporting action for free, if you know where to look you can get front-row seats to almost any game."
Eric Gargiulo presents Brock Lesnar Is Healthy And Will Fight posted at, saying, "The Brock Lesnar mystery is closer to being solved today. Lesnar and UFC president Dana White appeared this afternoon on ESPN SportsCenter. Lesnar claimed that he is cured of diverticulitis and will fight again. Dana White confirmed that Lesnar is still the UFC heavyweight champion and named four potential opponents for Lesnar’s return. The return to the UFC of Brock Lesnar is looking better today than it has in recent months."
