With the NFL playoffs just around the corner, I wanted to look at a phrase that we hear used countless times by commentators during the season. "Defense win Championships" This phrase is reeled off for fun whenever a team with a strong defense overpowers one with a strong offense. But does defense really win Championships?  After all, you can't win games if you can't score points. Do olbg tipsters take a strong defense into account when adding their weekly NFL...

My New York Jets Wembley Experience

I was lucky enough to go to the International Series game in 2009 when the New England Patriots played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  As a fan of neither team, it was disappointing to see the game become a blowout quickly and as it was only the third game in the series, the atmosphere felt very forced. Almost as if the NFL thought it was being watched by 80,000 robots. Whilst I had a great time, I made a conscious decision... [ Read More ]

Quite an informative week that's given us a lot more insight in to most of the league, as well as some big questions regarding injuries and how teams will cope. Without wanting to go too far in to how the weekend was, there are a couple of things that stick out, and should provide some good opportunities for finding prop lines more than anything. The Giants offense is already toast. Saquon Barkley suffered an awful injury and Daniel Jones is a... [ Read More ]
