    The Rainbow Warriors are coming off a 3-10 season, in which they went 0-8 in conference play. The good news is they return 15 starters from last season, including nine on offense. However, the defense is where Rainbow Warriors have to improve; they were 98th in yards allowed per game last season. They also gave up a whopping 38.9 points per game over their final nine contests.

    The Golden Bears were 8-5 last season overall, which was somewhat disappointing after a strong 5-0 start. They welcome back nine starters but have to replace their star QB – Jared Goff who is joining the LA Rams as the top NFL draft pick. Davis Webb, a transfer from Texas Tech, is up for the starting QB job.

    The Golden Bears and Rainbow Warriors have split their four overall meetings, with the last one dating back to 1994 – which Hawaii won. Game time for Friday’s match is 10 PM ET with Fox Sports 2 providing coverage.

  • San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

    2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

    Posted by Henry Watkins on August 18, 2016

    2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites Posted by Henry Watkins on August 18, 2016 For the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s timFor the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s time to forget about the successes of a few months ago, and time to start thinking about the large target on you back. Any team who has ever won a title will tell you that defending it is harder than winning it in the first place, simply because everyone else wants a piece of the champion. The Denver Broncos essentially won it all with superior defensive play last year, and the general consensus is that they are going to have to go about things the exact same way this time around, mostly because Manning is gone, and an adequate replacement isn’t really in place. While that is a pretty big problem to have, it pales in comparison to what is going on in San Francisco. The 49ers look like a total shambles, and with the NFC West looking to be stronger than usual this season, they could be in for a rough go of things. They are way down in the Super Bowl 51 betting odds, and I don’t see them doing much to change that as the season progresses.

    Why bet on the San Francisco 49ers

    It is beginning to look more and more like Blaine Gabbert is going to be the man in San Francisco 49ers, as Colin Kaepernick looks like a man caught in limbo at the moment. Kaepernick came very close to moving to Denver in the offseason, but a potential deal fell through, leaving him on something of a strange spot. Gabbert did very little to impress in a Week 1 preseason loss, going just 4-10 for 63 yards and a TD. 43 of those yards came on the TD pass, but it has to be said that he looked pretty shaky overall. Kaepernick did not feature at all in that game, a 24-13 loss to the Texans, and it’s going to be interesting to see if he gets any snaps in Denver.

    Why bet on the Denver Broncos

    There are a trio of QB’s in Denver looking to take the number one spot, and Mark Sanchez will have given himself a leg-up with his performance in Week 1 of the preseason. He went 10-13 for 99 yards and 1 TD, as well as 1 INT, in a 22-0 win for the Broncos. As good as that performance was, what really jumped out was the ability of the Denver defense to essentially shut down the Bears. Chicago were held to 146 yards through the air, and just 48 on the ground, and much of that was against the Broncos reserves. It’s early yet, but this is the kind of defensive domination that the Broncos showed off last year.

  • Newly Promoted Hull City

    Leicester takes on the newly promoted Hull City at the KCOM stadium. The Foxes will be anxious to start the season off on a high after acquiring a lot of criticism as to whether they can continue their accomplishments into the 2016/2017 season, especially with the loss of midfield destroyer N’Golo Kante. There is a lot that still stands in Leicester’s favour, despite missing out on the Community Shield over the weekend in a 2-1 defeat against man Utd, as they have managed to keep key striker Jamie Vardy in addition to making some smart new signings. Leicester are favourites to take the first 3 points of the season at 11/10 with bet365 – add Jamie Vardy to score first for a more competitive price of 6/1.

A home win here is most likely and currently 1/5 with bet365.

    Sunday sees Jose Mourinho’s first Premier League game in charge of Manchester United as they visit Bournemouth for a 13.30 kick-off. Both teams have recruited well for the new season albeit with United’s at a much higher cost. United need a solid start after all the pre-season hype, Bournemouth may not be as easy as some would think with the side capable of producing some quality attacking football and as a result are 7/2 to take a home win albeit more like for the Manchester team to walk away with 3 points at 8/11 again with bet365.

    Add the above to an accumulator for odds of 3.35/1 at bet365 – enhance this even further using the Euro Soccer Bonus allowing for the opportunity of up to a 100% Bonus on accumulators on the top domestic leagues in Europe along with the group and knockout stages of the Champions League.

    Its certain to be an exciting season with what could be one of the more competitive title races in years.

  • NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel

    Troubled NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel promised things would be different this time. He would remain clean and sober and was working out in Hawaii to show that he can help a team.

    Troubled NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel promised things would be different this time. He would remain clean and sober and was working out in Hawa So what happens a day after his promise? Manziel got into an altercation with a wedding guest the day before a friend’s wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel. Manziel insists that he was not the aggressor in a story that appeared on TMZ.com.

    Manziel believed the other man was the aggressor and was fed up with being hounded. In a quick decision, Manziel threw one punch and the fight was over in seconds. Police were not called and Johnny Football reportedly sent a bottle of champagne to the unidentified man with a note that read: “Truly apologize. Should have never done that. Know this won’t make it better, but hope it starts the day off right.”

    Manziel, 23, is currently an NFL free agent after being released by the Cleveland Browns. No team wants to take a chance on him even as a backup because of a series of fights, alcohol abuse and just plain old silly behavior.

    He was a guy that showed promise at Texas [email protected], winning the Heisman Trophy in 2012. His level of immaturity has been troubling. Even his father believes his son could end up dead.

    Manziel spent 73 days in a rehab clinic and checked out just in time for offseason workouts in 2015. Coaches and teammates said he looked more focused, drinking less and even moved out of a high priced downtown Cleveland high-rise where the party people of Cleveland lived.

    He fell into old bad habits and was dismissed by the end of summer. He lasted 22 months in Cleveland and finished with seven touchdowns, seven interceptions and seven fumbles. That is hardly the stat line of a franchise quarterback.

    Still, teams wanted NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel, including the Dallas Cowboys. However, he ruptured former girlfriend Colleen Crowley’s eardrum with a punch to the head. Teams now say he is untouchable.

    NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel disappeared from the Browns, but emerged in Las Vegas with a blonde wig and moustache, telling people he was Billy.

    Recently he apologized to fans and vowed he would be back. Manziel even posted a video of him working out in Hawaii.

    Troubled NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel promised things would be different this time. He would remain clean and sober and was working out in Hawa“I have good friends around me supporting what I do and I try to support them in what they want to do,” Manziel told the Washington Post. “I’m not saying I’m never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy. I’ve got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I’m interested in doing a lot of different things in my life – including football – but, right now, I’m just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds.”

    But who can trust him?
