Obsessed With Sports:
Every season RDM obsesses on the NFL team win total over/unders. It’s one of the more fun bets in all of sports. A single well-placed bet turns an otherwise random team into a must see weekly event. Today we look at the 2012 New York Giants .
The number: 8.5
Eli Manning is a ******* winner. That point has been proven again, and again, and again. The rest of this division is filled with a bunch of bonafide losers. That point has been proven again, and again, and again. And again.
At the end of the day, the NFC East is just another day at the beach for Eli and the Giants.
This is more a pick against the Eagles, ‘Skins and Cowboys. That should be at least 5 wins for the G-men right there.

The pick: over 8.5 win

Tracy is a little undersized to be an end, but he has the same type of speed and explosive burst that helped make Umenyiora a two-time Pro Bowl...
Tom Coughlin is the best big-game coach in the game today. Our powerful point-spread database Spreadapedia also reveals that he's consistently a step ahead of public expectations. For example, he's .731 all-time when a 3-point favorite. Oh! His Giants are -3 vs. Dallas in Week 1.
Players from both the New York Giants and Jets downplayed the hometown rivalry between the teams, but acknowledged that there's always a little extra buzz - even in preseason - when they get together.
Their matchup Saturday night at MetLife Stadium - a Jets home game - marks the teams' first meeting since the Giants won 29-14 on Christmas Eve, sparked by Victor...

When I wed my beautiful bride nearly a decade ago, I married into her rabid fanaticism for the Denver Broncos. I have adopted the team as my own. But never in our eight year marriage have both of us been so unexcited about an upcoming season at Mile High Stadium.
Peyton Manning is just not our guy.
I know he had a stellar career with the Indianapolis Colts, a Super Bowl champion...
