Doppelgangers: NBA/NFL Edition

D

Inspired by the Wall Street Journal’s Chris Herring, we here at The Sports Brunch decided a good way to fill part of this two week football layoff would be to create an entertaining article in which we decide which NFL teams and NBA teams match up most closely with each other.  After hours of collaboration and a [...]

We’re single-digit days away from Selection Sunday, and with that brings the latest installment of Bracketology. For the automatic bids, I’ve picked who I think will be the winners from the conference tournament that started this week. For those who start next week, it goes by best record.

Bracketology 1/23

B

With football season about to come to a close (for pretty much all of us, it has already), it’s time to shift the focus to college basketball. Conference play is well underway, and we’ll be getting some very competitive matchups in the coming weeks as the sport begins to dominate Saturdays. With less than two [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 16

C

Only two weeks remain in the regular season and I have one piece of advice to give: don’t take it for granted. If you’re like me, you love the NFL and look forward to Sundays just so you can crash on your couch and watch the games. Even though there will still be playoffs, it [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 15

C

Jooooohhhhnnnyyyy…..Jooooohhhhnnnyyyy…… The chants have gone on long enough. It’s finally time. Johnny Manziel will make his first NFL start this Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. I’m not leading my column with this because I’m a Manziel super fan. Instead, I want to highlight once again why the NFL is a world of overreactions. Week to [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 14

C

I was in Atlantic City this past weekend, and it reminded me of something disappointing: despite the progress that has been made, sports gambling is still not legal in New Jersey. It doesn’t make sense to me, especially given the appeal that the NFL and Roger Goodell made against it, saying it would hurt the [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 13

C

I was talking to a friend of mine this week about my column and he had a word of advice for me: “Don’t start your column out with, ‘Well….that was rough.'” Despite my attempt to be honest (and luckily, I haven’t had to open up my column with that line in a few weeks), he [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 12

C

Coming back down to earth, I was still able to nail both of my Five Star Bets, but I only hit one teaser and two moneylines. It was a crazy week in football, and it honestly seems like it’s just going to get crazier. The NFL is the greatest drama on television. You couldn’t script [...]
