Is there ever a quiet time for NFL football? It's not the time of year where you hear a lot about college football betting advice but the NFL is still going strong.
One would think that with the Super Bowl past, free agency dying down, the NFL draft complete and mini-camps passing that this would be the time where some other sports would steal the headlines. But sports betting fans know that no matter what, the NFL reigns supreme.
We had some interesting news this week as Pacman Jones finally found a home. Guess who?
That's right, the Cincinnati Bengals. The team that takes more chances on off-the-field issue-laced players than anyone else in the NFL has added one more. Jones was surprisingly humble after the signing and the Bengals coaching staff said exactly that.
The bottom line is that the Bengals are trying to improve. They made a big step by making the playoffs last year and they see the Pittsburgh Steelers as being a bit vulnerable, and they want to maintain their standing in the AFC North.
Check your football betting guide: the Ravens added Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth to their lineup this year. They are going to pass more. Everyone knows you don't go anywhere without a good set of cornerbacks and the Bengals are simply trying to improve.
The real question is whether Jones has anything left. He's had some other chances - notably Dallas - and he simply wasn't effective as a cornerback - let alone an off-the-field distraction. This addition won't affect the sports lines odds for the Bengals win total in 2010.
