The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:
•With the software(the best way):
Watch online now: Satellite Direct.
•Many games are offered through the NFL Network channel. You can order this from your cable or satellite provider. This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.
•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.
“We opened the Broncos 50-to-1 to win the Super Bowl in January before the last Super Bowl had played,” LVH Super Book assistant manager Jeff Sherman says, “and then when rumors were swirling in March about the three teams Manning would interview with after he was released from the Colts, we immediately dropped all their odds with the Broncos going to 20-to-1 just to be cautious.
“When he officially became a Bronco, we moved Denver to 10-to-1 and the public has been betting them all summer long. The Broncos and 49ers (10/1) are easily the most bet teams in our futures.”
As for the larger, sharper money, those bettors are a little more skeptical than the rest of the public on how Manning will fare this season. When the season-win totals came out in May at several sports books, the Broncos were bet down from winning 9 ½ games to 8 ½ games. It takes limit wagers to move the money-line on a total of 15 to 20 cents, and it takes about a dozen of those types of bets to move a half-game off the number. In the Broncos’ case, they’ve moved a whole game below what was first offered.
Rick Herron, one of The Linemakers on Sporting News, is one of those skeptics.
“I have a lot of questions beyond the possibility of Manning just staying healthy all season,” says Herron, who ran sports books for the Las Vegas Hilton, Sands and Fremont casinos. “Missing an entire season is a big deal, and even when he was playing for the Colts, we started to see a decline from his former self as his interception totals went up for three consecutive years.”
Even with the Bryant McKinnie drama in the first week of camp, the Ravens are feeling pretty good about their offensive tackle position. McKinnie played well last season after joining Baltimore late in the preseason, but by no-showing early in camp and only re-joining practice over the weekend after passing his conditioning test, he has opened the door for Michael Oher to reclaim the starting left tackle job he held prior to 2011. Oher has looked solid in that spot so far, and rookie Kelechi Osemele has progressed rapidly at right tackle, with veteran Jah Reid giving Baltimore some depth on the right side.
Add it all up and the Ravens have the option of parting ways with McKinnie if he doesn't keep his weight under control and prove he's one of the team's five best linemen. If he can't beat out Oher, Baltimore won't keep him around as a backup, even if it did pay him a $500,000 roster bonus in the offseason. McKinnie still has time to change some minds, but he needs to be able to run and move and handle the fast-paced, up-tempo style game that Baltimore wants its line to play. It's just my hunch, but unless injuries occur, I'd put my money on Oher at left tackle in Week 1's Monday nighter at home against division rival Cincinnati.
