Pro Bettor Selection

This week’s installment of the Chronicles of a Pro Bettor, sees our gambling professional takes a further look at the upcoming NFL season after a quick recap of his successful punting week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. 

Rocket Mortgage Classic Results

No big bets like Brian Harman at the Travelers with the nine-level stakes selections below

The Rocket Mortgage Classic was a very successful week on the golf with three winners (+175), (+500) and (+700).

Close calls on the biggest-priced selections too with Thompson (+3300) finishing 3rd and Merritt just outside the top 10.

Bet Cardinals Early and Create Profit

Yes, I believe an early bet on the Arizona Cardinals for the NFC West could create a profitable spot for our NFL futures portfolio.

In 2021/2022, Kyler Murray found his feet as an NFL quarterback, thus creating a strong portfolio for my followers after an unbeaten start to the season for the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals were the last unbeaten franchise of that season, and the division became a two-horse race allowing me to bet the L.A. Rams for guaranteed profit.

That campaign, I bet the Arizona Cardinals pre-season at +1400 for the NFC West and we are taking the same route again.

This year, the San Francisco 49ers are very strong joint favorites for the Super Bowl, hence an extremely warm order for the NFC West at -225. The L.A. Rams are clear second favorites at +350 while the Seattle Seahawks are around the +750 mark with our selection as the outsider of the four.

Good Vibes Around Tyler Murray

Quarterbacks win matches and there is no doubt that during the early period of the 2021/2022 season, Kyler Murray was a hot property in the NFL with his laser throwing.

Can Murray Recreate 2021?

The are rumors that Kyler Murray is massively motivated for the start of the new season, having suffered two injury-affected years after that breakthrough 2021 season. Finally, clear of those injuries, the twenty-six-year-old Texan is being tipped for a massive season by teammate, Trey McBride and head coach, Jonathan Gannon.

Tight end, McBride, said he believes that:

Gannon himself was appointed boss having left his position as Philadelphia defensive co-ordinator after their 2022 Super Bowl defeat, and last year was a difficult rookie season for him but he confesses to being excited by Murray’s growing confidence when saying,

“I’m not going to hide my excitement, it’s awesome to see him lead the offense. Lead the team, being there with his teammates, asking really good questions, getting held accountable in front of everyone and taking it on the chin just like everybody does, I love that about him.”

How Will Betting the Cardinals at +1400 Build Profit?

One of our top sportsbooks, Everygame, has quoted Arizona Cardinals at +1400 to win the NFC West.

If the Arizona Cardinals are better than their rating, then their price is large and tradable for the NFC West.

As a pro bettor, I am taking that bet with the plan that if the division becomes a two-horse race mid-way onwards through the regular season, we will look to bet the other side, something that I did very successfully a couple of seasons ago.

I will be backing my judgement further for the Cardinals to make another fast start to their season; by looking at their money line prices early doors, particularly versus their divisional rivals.

For now, I am taking the Arizona Cardinals to win the NFC West, with a view to trade later in the NFL season.
