For any sports fan, the close season period can be boring, and American football fans are no different in that respect. The 2013 NFL season is due to kick off in September, but alongside speculating and betting on how things will shape up during the season, NFL fans also have the option of playing some of the many American football based casino games that can be found at online casino sites. Games like Pigskin Payout and $5 Million Touchdown are becoming more popular all the time with NFL betting fans, as they offer a different way to indulge a love of the sport and gambling.

 Pigskin Payout is a five reel slots game found at places like JackpotCity with twenty pay lines and the reels are filled with everything from American football players and cheerleaders to umpires and mascots – while the background depicts a typical NFL football stadium. Thanks to the presence of those twenty pay lines and a wild reel icon (the cheerleader) you have a firm chance of ending up winning a payout by playing this game which, let’s face it, isn’t always the case with NFL betting, and if you get a winning reel featuring the cheerleader wild, this will result in your payout being doubled.

 Pigskin Payout certainly isn’t the only NFL slots game in town though, as one such game which has proven to be arguably even more popular is $5 Million Touchdown. The first half of the name derives from the amount of the maximum jackpot, while the second half of it comes from the bonus game. This game gets you to participate in a typical NFL game, brought to life by the video graphics, as you try to pass the football from player to player – winning a bonus prize if you manage to score the all-important touchdown. Again though, this game is American football all the way, from the reel icons of players and footballs to the background of a typical NFL football pitch. Either one of these great casino games would represent a fine way for NFL fans to while away the summer.

A guide to football Betting

Posted by joemak | 4:19 PM | 16 comments »

Many people looking to bet on the football may be misled into thinking that picking the team that will win (or if a draw will happen) is as far as it goes, this is not the case.

Don’t try to walk before you can crawl, so do start out with simple bets like this and once you get into the swing of things start checking out other betting opportunities. These can be more likely to make you more money.

What you have to understand about betting on the football (and betting in general) is that the more unlikely the outcome, the higher the odds. Take two teams for example where one is clearly stronger than the other. The odds for the stronger team are going to be significantly lower because that is where everyone will put their money, yet betting on the team most likely to lose will not guarantee a return. Having a look around at the different betting markets on offer can find you pretty good odds with fewer outcomes, so it helps to do your research.

When you’re starting out, all these options can be a little overwhelming. Have a scout around to see what are the best markets to bet on, suggest looking at the Over/Under market. Other sites may think otherwise, but reasons for their choice will be explained, just as does. After looking at exactly which market to bet on, it is then perhaps good to look at where you are going to place this bet. You can get down to your local bookies or have a quick search on the Internet for the best deals online. The best Free bets offers on the upcoming grand national 2013 event is at

Gene Chizik made a huge splash with the signing of 5-star juco quarterback Cameron Newton. Newton, who started his career at Florida before transferring to Blinn Community College will enroll in Auburn for the spring semester. He will be able to practice with Auburn in the spring and compete for the starting position for the upcoming season.
After committing Newton told reporters, "I feel that I can come in and be a main contributor for the Tigers on their road to the SEC title."

Newton led the Buccaneers to a 10-1 record and the NJCAA championship in early December. He finished the season with 2,833 yards passing with 22 touchdown passes and only 5 interceptions and rushed for 608 yards with 16 rushing touchdowns. Newton was also receiving offers from Arizona, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, as well as others.

With the departure of senior quarterback Chris Todd, the juco quarterback will come in and compete with the 4 quarterbacks already on the roster. From looking at the roster I believe Newton will end being the starter for the Tigers next season. His mobility and size is tremendous and should thrive in Gus Malzahn's spread offense.

The signing of Newton vaulted Auburn to number 3 in the 2010 recruiting class according to Rivals. Important date for you Tiger fans is February 3rd the first day high school athletes can sign their letter of intent.

With the bowl win over Northwestern and Cameron Newton coming to the Tiger program things are truly looking up for next season.

Tidbits from Auburn Football

Posted by Jared Baker | 8:40 AM | 2 comments »

A few tidbits from the past week about Auburn's football team.

Sophomore running back Eric Smith was ruled academically ineligible for the Outback Bowl on January 1st. Smith who didn't see much time on the field ran the ball for 99 yards on 20 carries and caught 18 passes for 226 yards. This shouldn't affect Guz Malzahn's offensive game plan since Smith wasn't a major factor in the offense anyways.

Congratulations to 8 seniors that received their diplomas on Friday, they were wide receivers John Cubelic and Tim Hawthorne, holder Clayton Crofoot, defensive backs Zac Etheridge and Montae Pitss, offensive linemen Jeno James and Darrell Roseman, and linebacker Craig Stevens. This is what college sports is all about letting these young men get a free education while doing something they are physically gifted at.

Another congratulations needs to go out to Antonio Coleman and Ben Tate for being invited to the Senior Bowl, the game that showcases the seniors to NFL scouts.

Defensive end Antonio Coleman, a Mobile native led the SEC with 9 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. The All-SEC defensive end will be playing on Sundays next season with his size, strength and speed Coleman should be drafted fairly high in April's draft.

Running back Ben Tate ran for 1,254 yards this season that ranked 4th best in the SEC and 23rd nationally. Tate had 6 100-yard rushing games on the season and should get a chance to play for a team looking for a solid back-up. He is a very hard runner and excelled this season under new offensive coordinator Guz Malzahn.

These 2 young men deserve everything they received as well as the 8 young men that graduated this semester. We at are very proud of these accomplishments.

Gene Chizik is at it again already having a recruiting class ranked in the top 10 by most recruiting websites, Chizik received another commitment Friday when 4-star athlete Ryan White told him he was committing to the Tigers.

White, a 6 foot 180 pound from Lincoln High School out of Tallahassee, FL led his Trojans to a 9-4 record this year. As a junior he ran for 640 yards while passing for 1,053 yards with 14 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He's a very quick player tabbed at 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, with that said he'll most likely end up playing defensive back for the Tigers when he arrives on campus next season. White was receiving offers from the likes of Arkansas, Ole Miss and South Carolina and did have college visits lined up in January.

Chizik lately has been addressing a need by recruiting athletes that will come in and fill a void in the defense that allowed 27 points a game, by far one of the worst scoring defenses in the Southeastern Conference. This brings the Tigers it's 22nd commitment of the 2010 class.

SEC boasts 11 AP First Team All-Americans

Posted by Jared Baker | 10:28 AM | 0 comments »

Does anyone want to tell me now that the SEC conference isn't the best conference in college football? The Associated Press released their All-American teams and the SEC finished with 11 on the first-team. Rival Alabama had the most of any school with 6 including Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram and middle linebacker Rolando McClain. Both these young men were unanimous choices for the first-team.

The power in college football is in the SEC and the Heisman trophy and now 11 first team All-Americans shows evidence that the best players are coming out of this conference. With the NFL Draft in April I expect at least 5 first rounders from the SEC including Eric Berry, safety from Tennessee projected to be a top 5 draft pick.

No Auburn players made any of the 3 teams, but give Gene Chizik a few years and we'll start seeing the Cadillac Williams and the Ronnie Brown's back on that list. The name that could be on there in as soon as 2 years from now could Michael Dyer, a 5 star running back that will be a force in Gus Malzahn's spread-power running offense. I truly believe he could be a stud for the Tigers program for the next 4 years.

Well would like to congratulate all these young men on a tremendous honor and we hope to see some of our own in the years to come.

Saturday, December 12th Gene Chizik picked up another in-state recruit for the Auburn Tigers. 5'11 175lb athlete Chris Davis committed to the Auburn program. The 3 star athlete according to had other written offers from South Carolina and UAB and had visited the Gamecocks on November 24th.

Davis played his high school football at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, AL. The senior played quarterback for Woodlawn leading them to a 5-5 record this past year and in his final game as a high school player, he rushed for 178 yards on 23 carries and connected on 6 of 9 passes for 50 yards in a 10-0 win over Jackson-Olin.

In college Davis is projected to play defensive back with his 4.45 speed and should improve the one of the worst scoring defenses in the SEC in the upcoming years. I wouldn't be surprised if he's red shirted his freshman season just to add on much needed muscle. Chizik is doing what he needs to do recruit in-state and keep the players in the state of Alabama. is very excited by this commitment and it brings the total to 23 committed players to the Tiger program.
