Eric Gargiulo presents NBA Betting ? Celtics, Spurs clash in battle of streaking teams posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The Celtics (14-4) are coming off a 108-90 thumping of Charlotte on the road, holding the Bobcats to 40.5% from the floor, and 2-of-11 from beyond the arc. Ray Allen was on fire, scoring 27 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including 5-of-6 from three-point range), and Kendrick Perkins even threw in a double-double with 21 points and 12 boards. The Celtics are now 8-2 when they score 100 points or more, and even though their NBA betting odds depend on their defense, Boston is showing that they can fill the basket as well."

Steve Patterson presents What did we learn from college football this week?

Eric Gargiulo presents Fantasy Football Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Quinton Ganther, Washington Redskins - I picked up Ganther last week but didn't trust him to start. I got burnt as Ganther had 21 points last week and was the first Redskin running back to start and get goal line carries in a long time. I learned my lesson, and yet he is still available in most leagues off of the waiver/free agent wire. Ganther has a fantastic matchup this Sunday against the New York Giants. The Philadelphia Eagles ran all over the Giants Sunday night. As a matter of a fact, everyone has run on the Giants this season. I love his matchup, and he is one of the few backs in the entire league to get the ball as both a feature and red zone back."
Steve Patterson presents What did we learn from week 14 in the NFL? posted at FryingPan Sports, saying, "The Cowboys took a major hit with their loss to the Chargers. With the wins over the Giants the Birds took control of their division."

Eric Gargiulo presents NHL Betting: Islanders clash with the Flyers posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The most hyped prospect since Sidney Crosby, John Tavares is passing his first test with flying colors so far this season. He’s a creative center who has a goal-scoring touch but can also make others around him better. Seeing him help turn Matt Moulson into a sniper is like seeing Brett Favre and Sidney Rice blossom in NFL betting."

Eric Gargiulo presents Week of WWE Wrestling: 11/28/2009 to 12/05/2009 | CamelClutchBlog.com posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "Who should be Raw's guest host on Jan. 4? For wrestling fans these days, it would be huge for if the Rock or "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is the guest host. I feel that the best guest host, to go against "Hollywood" Hulkster will be either Bret "the Hitman" Hart or Randy "Macho King" Savage!"
Eric Gargiulo presents Another Bias HBO Boxing Show posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "HBO should come up with their own title, as they come up with their own facts, instead of stating them like opinions. In what ruined a great show, was the announcing team of HBO, this time it was the more annoying presence of Max Kellerman that was ranting about his "thoughts" that he states as fact. First, Chris Arreola was scheduled to fight club level Brian Minto in a comeback for Arreola, after losing to Vitali Klitschko. Max Kellerman would go on to review the heavyweight division, and say that the way to become a heavyweight champion, the only way, is to beat one of the Klitschko Brothers."

Eric Gargiulo presents Big Matches Ahead For BJ Penn and Frank Mir posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The UFC rebounded after several disappointing shows with a great closeout to 2009. UFC 107 lived up the hype with decisive finishes, great fights, lots of blood, and dominant performances. BJ Penn and Frank Mir both looked tremendous in their wins at UFC 107. Unlike recent UFC shows, there were no questionable decisions…just questionable futures."
Dick Lafrance presents My Sports Heroes posted at My Thoughts on the World of Sports, saying, "Growing up during the 1960's and 70's I was fascinated by sports by the 4 major sports and their athletes."
Eric Gargiulo presents Iron Mike Tyson: Boxing After Prison posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "When Mike Tyson was in prison public consensus was that he was still the best heavyweight, dare I say, boxer, on the planet. When he was released from prison he already signed for millions of dollars with Don King for his return to the ring. His record, 41-1 showed how good he was, except for that one night fluke in Japan against a now "no one" in Buster Douglas."
