Not long ago, your father or grandfather may have slunk into a dim doorway in an alley, and then into a hidden entrance to a secret casino in order to place a bet on his favorite horse or boxing match. Today, you can place a bet without the help of a shady bookie or threat of thugs. Online betting is a big business, transferring millions of dollars each month. In fact, you don’t even have to have a computer to place a bet online. Times are changing, and mobile sports betting is capturing a new generation of bettors.

Mobile Betting Basics

Since you are familiar with your phone and all its quirks, you may like using your browser to place a bet because it offers you a better experience than a sports betting app. But remember that some of the figures may be difficult to see, so a large screen is preferred over a smaller one. Small screens may cause you to click on the wrong spot, causing you to make a mistaken bet. Also, different sportsbooks are designed for different areas, so choose one that has the functionality you need.

Running Your Sports Organization Like a Pro

business-2449731_640

There has been a lot of pressure on major league sports administrators to address the political statements athletes are making on the field. Whether it’s in football or soccer, managing the personal decisions of athletes deciding to speak out for their beliefs can complicate all the other areas of league management. Although it seems that minor and little league teams don’t face quite the same media exposure and backlash for stunts and demonstrations involving team members, the same stresses of management still exist. In order to step up your game and demonstrate a leadership skill worthy of a hall of fame for management styles, invest in an integrated league management software app to organize and manage your club or league from one platform.

Browns answer critics and run over Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens started the season against the Miami Dolphins, easily one of the worst teams in NFL history. Then they played the woeful Arizona Cardinals. After easy wins, naturally many in the press jumped to the conclusion that the Ravens were one of the best teams in the NFL. Oh, and suddenly Lamar Jackson was a cut below Patrick Mahomes.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns had plenty of hype coming into the season, and many in the pressed relished watching them struggle in their opener and then suffer some horrible play calls from Freddie Kitchens last week against the Rams. Many loved mocking Baker Mayfield for his slow start.

This poll from last week summed up the silliness we’ve been hearing. Lamar Jackson is a very talented player with a unique skill set, but there’s no way you take him over Baker Mayfield.

Mitch Trubisky starts with a rough night

The Chicago Bears lost their opener at home against arch rival Green Bay last night, kicking off the NFL’s 100th season. But the implications here go far beyond a disappointing loss and not covering the spread. Mitch Trubisky demonstrated all the limitations we’ve come to expect from him as a starting quarterback. His vision and accuracy are just terrible.

Some of this falls on Matt Nagy, who didn’t play Trubisky during the preseason and then abandoned the running game last night. This guy is supposed to be an offensive genius and yet he called a miserable game.

The Bears could be in trouble here. We don’t want to overreact after one game, but it’s hard to see how the Bears get much more out of Trubisky. With that in mind, Nagy needs to commit to the running game and utilize play action to give Trubisky easier throws. With the Denver defense waiting for them next week, they need to fix this quickly.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers looked rusty as hell in the first quarter and had to rely on a couple of big throws to move the ball against the tough Bears defense. But the Packers defense was excellent, so perhaps Green Bay can get back to making noise in the NFC this season.

The Bears were a 3-point favorite at home, so this was basically a pick-em game. It will be interesting to see the line for next week’s game at Denver. It’s easy to read way too much into week one results. The issue here is that Trubisky’s limitations have been evident for two years and were on full display again last night.

Justin Fields flashes talent and areas to work on

Ohio State fans have been anxious to see just what the Buckeyes had in Justin Fields after his adventure with the transfer portal. After the Buckeyes jumped to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter against Lane Kiffin’s over-matched FAU squad, we learned a few things but not that much.

We knew Fields is blazing fast, and we saw him explode untouched for an easy 51-yard touchdown run off a read option. That wasn’t a surprise. We also saw him hit wide open receivers in stride, confirming that he has a good arm.

But we also saw Fields and the Ohio State offense get conservative and stall a bit after building that huge lead. Ryan Day seemed happy that Fields didn’t come close to throwing an interception. Fields often defaulted to running with the ball as opposed to trying tougher throws. We’ll see that a lot this season, but we’ll also need to see in coming weeks if Fields can make the tough throws when needed.

As for the Buckeyes, things looked so easy early on, and then FAU decided to start playing. The young offensive line certainly needs to develop more. We should have seen them control the game with J.K. Dobbins runs after building that lead, but FAU was able to stuff the Buckeye running game too often for comfort.
