    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Odds and Preview

    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Betting PreviewThe Coach Reid era in Philadelphia has been marked by disappointment, in that while the Eagles have had good teams for a long time they just haven't been able to get over the hump.

    2012 Denver Broncos Odds and Preview

    2012 Denver Broncos Betting PreviewIt's been a strange last year or so for the Denver Broncos. First, it didn't look like they were going anywhere during the early season last year.

    2012 Miami Dolphins Odds and Preview

    The Miami Dolphins have fallen into the ranks of rudderless teams. They'll enter this season with yet another head coach, former Green Bay assistant Joe Philbin, after four seasons under Coach Sparano.
