Adrian Peterson 2015 NFL Prediction, NFL Fantasy Football Prediction, Making A Case To Avoid AP?

We fired up and ready to go!  Yes, another NFL season is in our midst as we wind down another NFL offseason and preseason football.  Although our private NFL Fantasy league already drafted at the beginning of the month, NFL Fantasy football is all the rage these days!  With that, comes the Adrian Peterson bandwagon that everyone seems to be piling on to, as of late.  His past is but a memory, although his off-the-field issues still seem to lurk in the news.

But here we go, our SafePicks.com 2015 NFL prediction: Adrian Peterson will have a less-than-stellar season, one that may be poisoned and/or shortened with injury.  So if you plan to draft Adrian Peterson, especially if you have the first pick in your NFL Fantasy league, do so with caution.  Having had the pleasure of the first pick in our NFL Fantasy league draft, we avoided him with pleasure. Guess we’ll see if we were right to do so… soon enough.

Before some of you seethe or even scold us for our bold prediction here, although we may not the be-all-end-all authority in NFL Fantasy football, we do know a thing or two on the subject.  As background, SafePicks.com finished FIRST last season in our NFL Fantasy League, we came second the season before, and we finished top three in the last five of six seasons. So, we will do what we do, (making successful NFL predictions and NFL Fantasy predictions) and we will go out on a limb as we have, (win or lose) making such a bold prediction about Adrian Peterson.  That’s what we do, we make successful NFL predictions.  It’s a case of buyer beware. Why?  For several reasons.

First off, AP has a huge chip on the shoulder.  He is a man on a mission now that he’s back on the field.  But sometimes such an overly determined mindset does not ultimately bode well for performance and stat sheets, based on our research, and even history itself.  We’ve seen players try to do too much before and it did not serve them well in the long run, in terms of success and/or in health.  There is nothing worse than over-thinking it in NFL football especially in your all-out quest with something to prove.  In AP’s case, his mission will be to out-perform and then welcome the post-game media – only to field questions about his mired personal past.  Just you wait and see, Adrian Peterson will be trying to bite his tongue in those post game pressers which will only fuel his restless mental state.  Oh sure, AP is going to ‘give it’ and give it good in the heat of such self-imposed pressure.  But that mentality could potentially be his undoing.  When we make successful NFL predictions and we make many, this would be classified as the psychological angle ‎we use in our assessment of a game or player.

Then, secondly, if you believe in Poker gods, Golf gods, and even Football gods (don’t laugh), then the luck factor is a funny & unpredictable type of thing. Think on it, the gods of poker and golf have already made examples of a few big names, (Woods, Ivey, etc. just to name a few – for their own fall-from-grace reasons).  In fact, Tiger Woods is arguably a great example of what happens when you tempt fate and success, outside the game.  In that same vein, could one wonder if those Football gods plan to make an example of AP given his well documented personal issues?  With that to ponder, we find it absolutely stunning that he’s garnering so much fantasy football attention, going off as number one in so many mock drafts, NFL fantasy (Tier 1) ranking polls, and the like.  ‎Heck, even NFL.com has him top-ranking, how ironic is that by the way?  Everybody is jumping on the AP bandwagon!

Will Adrian Peterson put up some numbers?  Absolutely!  Will the same AP have some breakout games?  Certainly.  But will Peterson have the year (for the ages) that a majority of fantasy players are banking on?  We don’t believe so.  In this great sport we call NFL football, let’s not put the proverbial cart before the horse.  The killer, in the world of NFL predictions, is gut feeling or assumption.  Both are avid mothers of evil when making NFL predictions, so we believe.  AP is AP, no question.  But the jury is still out on Adrian Peterson, for a couple of more weeks only.  Then the world will see how wrong (or right) we may be.  Not long now.   As instinct would have it, we’re supposed to forget the off-the-field stuff and go all-in on Adrian Peterson.  Right?  But SafePicks.com cannot do such a thing, win or lose.  He’s a 30 year old back, drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft, (just like Marshawn Lynch).  For both, this is their ninth year.  Make no mistake though, Adrian Peterson was on track to becoming the best back ever to ‎run with the ball.  Then, a torn ACL, news of a child’s death, and then later, child abuse charges came and all of this put a dent on his chances of reigning supreme on the ground.  With a full year off, he is back and more determined than ever to make a point.  But tread carefully, proceed with caution.  Whether it be Lynch or another, there are better choices for our NFL Fantasy league dollars!  Good luck from SafePicks.com!

Marty and the Chargers won the AFC West division and that $1k grew 90 times! Was it NFL betting smarts or NFL betting luck? You decide.

2014 NFL Predictions By Division And NFL Playoff Predictions

Another season of NFL football approaches and SafePicks.com is fired up for what promises to be yet another “highly successful” year of NFL and NCAAF picks & predictions. Serving the global NFL betting community for over a decade, SafePicks.com NFL Handicapping is proud to deliver eleven “very successful” years of picks and predictions as we head into our 12th year!  With about three weeks to go before the 2014 NFL Regular Season kicks off, let’s get right into our 2014 NFL Predictions by division and NFL playoff predictions.

Last year, in Vegas, the top four teams to win the Super Bowl were San Francisco, Denver, New England and Seattle. All four teams‎ made it to their conference championship. It was a great season of NFL playoffs last season as SafePicks.com went an astounding what??  That’s right, SafePicks.com went 9-2 ATS in the NFL Playoffs, our users cashed in big time!  Anyway, this year, those very same teams mentioned above have the lowest odds of winning the Super Bowl.  Albeit so, we are looking at the Packers and Saints to make some legitimate noise in the NFC this year.  We also have “chalked” some potential surprise sleeper teams this year, checkout the site for more details.  Of course though, the Seahawks are the favorites in Vegas, and remain darlings of the wagering public.  But repeating has been a difficult thing to do in this ever-tough NFL.

Let’s see where we’re leaning this coming NFL season, predicting AFC and NFC division winners for 2014 (oh and we get bold in the AFC):

National Football Conference (NFC) –
2014 NFL Predictions: Final Division ‎Finishes and NFC Playoffs

NFC East Prediction
1. Philadelphia:  Great offseason in Philly. If quarterback Nick Foles can stay the course and the defense improves, then this could be a 10-win team.
2. NY Giants:  Several offseason changes, but they have a long way to go yet and quarterback Eli Manning could arguably be on the decline.
3. Washington:  This team is in re-group mode and will be hard pressed to break the .500 mark.
4. Dallas:  Quarterback Tony Romo is recovering from yet another surgery (back) and 100% or not, he cannot do it all on his own. One day Jerry Jones will wake up to such a plague of a reality and relinquish his GM duties, plain and simple. This team will need lots of luck to break. 500 this season.

‎NFC South Prediction
1. New Orleans:  The Saints offense needs no introduction, but look out for their re-vamped & upgraded defense coming off 4th best in the league last season. Potential to champion the NFC.
2. Tampa Bay:  This team might surprise under coach Lovie Smith’s direction. In fact, this is a ‎possible sleeper team here. Be warned.
3. Atlanta:  Talented team, but won’t be enough to get the job done deep into the playoffs. Possible 9-win team though.
4. Carolina:  Defensively talented, but offensively weakened thanks to offseason alterations. This might be a tough year for the Panthers coming off a great season.

NFC North Prediction
1. Green Bay:  We have both Chicago and Green Bay tied for top spot in this division, but the Packers have the edge when it comes to tie-breaking the final finish.
2. Chicago:  This team will be better in 2014 and they should give the Packers a run for their money. This is another sleeper team to be weary of in our books.
3. Detroit:  Coach Jim Caldwell‎ will have his hands full this season, but could very well be the answer the Lions need from a “long-term” perspective.
4. Minnesota:  This team is still a couple of years away from the big dance, but the addition of talented head coach Mike Zimmer will help… almost instantly.

NFC West Prediction
1. Seattle:  Granted, this team changed a little in the offseason, but it is still hard to go against them here, until proven otherwise, they are the defending champions.
2. San Francisco:  A few player losses have taken place along with some pending contract issues, it will be hard for these Niners to stay in division contention.
3. Arizona:  The defense is good. Carson Palmer is capable of leading Arizona.  But can they get past the other two beasts, (Seahawks and Niners)?
4. St. Louis:  Make no mistake, the Rams are making great progress and will pull off a few wins, even maybe an upset or two. ‎ But that’s about all.

NFC Division Winners:  Philadelphia, New Orleans, Green Bay, Seattle

NFC Wild Card Teams:  San Francisco and Tampa Bay

NFC Championship Game:  New Orleans vs. Seattle

 

American Football Conference (AFC) –
2014 NFL Predictions:  Final Division ‎Finishes and AFC Playoffs

AFC East Prediction
1. New England:  The Pats need no introduction and will remain division owners as long as the duo of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick remain in place.
2. Buffalo:  This could potentially be the year for Buffalo fans, but success will depend upon quarterback EJ Manuel’s progress though.  Potential sleeper team.
3. NY Jets:  Rex Ryan will try to squeeze the most out of this capable group – in what will be a make-or-break year for Rex.  It will be a tough run though.
4. Miami:  The chalk tells us that there is not enough talent nor depth on this roster to consistently ‎compete, let alone making a (“must make”) playoff run.

AFC North Predicition
1. Cincinnati:  New contract for quarterback Andy Dalton, new season, new coordinators, and finally a potential playoff game win, then beyond?  Let’s see.
2. Cleveland:  Whoever gets the call to hold the quarterback reigns, (we prefer Hoyer over Manziel) this should be a better team overall.
3. Baltimore:  With a lot of new faces, the turnover effect from last season should settle in…. this team will potentially digress this season.
4. Pittsburgh‎:  This team has the potential to steal a few wins under Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback, but that’s about all.  There’s nothing telling us otherwise.

AFC South Prediction
‎1. Indianapolis:  With a fairly veteran roster and quarterback Andrew Luck, the road to the division title will still go through Indy, this could be a one-horse race – all the way.
2. Tennessee:  The Titans will be a better team this season under coach Ken Wisenhunt, let’s see if quarterback Locker can improve his play though.  Decent offseason.
3. Jacksonville:  Believe it or not, this could very well be a .500 team this season, and quarterback Blake Bortles (remember his name) could fit in quite well for the Jags offense.
4. Houston:  The way things are going for Houston, we would not be surprised if they are closer to the 2-14 team of last year than they are to the 12-4 team of yesteryear.

AFC West Prediction
1. Denver:  We have quarterback Peyton Manning, along with a re-vamped defense, and this team should be well on their way to punching another Super Bowl ticket.
2. ‎San Diego:  Coming off a playoff victory, the faster Chargers should be primed for a good season led by quarterback Philip Rivers.
3. Kansas City:  Coach Andy Reid’s second season, limited offseason changes, and a far more difficult schedule. They are good enough to make a playoff push, but it will harder this year.
4. Oakland‎:  An overhaul took place in Oakland this offseason with acquiring a more veteran team led by ousted quarterback Matt Schaub. It will be a rebuild season in Oakland though, at best.

AFC Division Winners:  New England, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Denver

AFC Wild Card Teams:  San Diego and Buffalo

AFC Championship Game:  Denver vs. Cincinnati

2013 – 2014 NFL Win Loss Predictions & Picks & Super Bowl Odds, NFL Expert Predictions

On any given Sunday, anything can and WILL happen.  It’s the National Football League after all!   Still, we analyzed every single game of the season, and we picked a winner – during boring NFL preseason play.  As a result, we have a final win-loss record for every team in the National Football League by division (along with their Super Bowl odds as of 09/01/2013).  Now, don’t bet the farm on this – we should take these predictions with a grain of salt… as several unforeseen circumstances are not factored in here.  For that, we would need a crystal ball to read the future (i.e. injuries, etc.).  But for the most part, we’re sticking with these win loss predictions, win or lose.  All for fun and fun for all.  Heck, we are almost 11 years online (at SafePicks.com) with a ton of loyal followers – so I think we know a thing or two about NFL picks & predictions.  Let’s hope some of you capitalize and we see you at SafePicks.com!  So, here we go… by division, here is our final win loss predictions for the 2013 National Football League season:

AFC West
Denver:  Overall 12-4 (Division: 5-1)  Super Bowl Odds:  5/1
Kansas City:  Overall 9-7 (Division: 5-1)  Super Bowl Odds:  50/1
San Diego:  Overall 4-12 (Division: 1-5)  Super Bowl Odds:  50/1
Oakland: Overall 2-14 (Division 1-5)  Super Bowl Odds:  250/1

NFL Experts, Matchup Preview: 2013 NFL Week 1 – Baltimore at Denver -9, Kickoff & Pick!

I decided to post our first site post here… if you want ALL of the killer NFL picks and predictions, come visit us and good luck!

Welcome back all SP users! Another NFL season is FINALLY upon us and we’re all just chomping at the bit to get it started! The National Football League opens the much anticipated 2013 season on Thursday (Sept. 5, 2013) with an exciting match-up in Denver when the Broncos host the Super Bowl winning Ravens.  We want to wish each and every one of you a great season and we’re just happy to be back for yet another great year at SafePicks!  Okay, without much further ado, let’s get right into Week 1 – let’s go first to that exciting kickoff in Denver.

Baltimore @ Denver -9:  Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be the place for when it all goes down, the kickoff to open the 2013 NFL season.  QB Joe Flacco leads the Super Bowl champion Ravens into Denver, where Peyton Manning and the Broncos are highly touted contenders to be hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy come February.  QB Flacco will be eager to show he’s worth the $120 million contract he received in the offseason thanks to the Ravens’ title triumph over San Francisco for the Super Bowl trophy.  Now it’s a re-worked Ravens squad who will take the field, without retired defensive and emotional leader Ray Lewis, and then some, more later.  The Broncos have endured some turmoil, too, with linebacker Von Miller suspended for six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.  Nevertheless, four-time Most Valuable Player, Peyton Manning, is widely expected to guide Denver to the playoffs as he did last year in his return from multiple neck surgeries. Now, the Broncos have waited almost eight months for their chance to avenge last season’s dramatic divisional playoff loss to a Ravens team that appears ready for the challenge this week.  Riding an 11-game winning streak and ahead by seven late in the fourth quarter, Denver appeared headed to the AFC championship game last season, until Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco connected with Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown pass with 31 seconds left, forcing overtime and stunning the Broncos. The Ravens went on to a 38-35 double-OT victory in which QB Flacco threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns – along with that long TD to Jones – in the playoff win.  Then that propelled them to a 28-13 win at New England the next week, and they went on to beat San Francisco 34-31 (it was also a SafePicks NFL Expert Prediction) to claim their first Super Bowl title since 2000.  And the rest is history.
