NFC West Preview 2010
2010-08-19

If youíre in to football Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Betting Picks betting, then you should pay attention to what Iím about to say about the NFC West. Now, the NFC West isnít nearly as competitive as he other NFC conferences, much less the NFC East, but thereís still a few teams who are worth your football betting.

The NFC West consists of the Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers, the St. Louis Rams, and the Seattle Seahawks. Leading the charge in the NFC West were the Arizona Cardinals, who finished the 2009 season at 10-6. The Cardinals went to the NFC Playoffs, and we all remember the game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the NFC playoffs. The Cardinals came out on top of the Packers in a 51 to 45 overtime win. In that game, there was 1,024 combined total yards for both teams. In fact, just in passing yards alone, the two teams racked up 779 yards. This was quite an epic game, one which the Cardinals pulled out all the stops and found a way to win. The Arizona Cardinals would then go on to face the eventual Super Bowl champions New Orleans Saints, in the second round of the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Saints were keen on reaching the Super Bowl, and dispatched the Cardinals, 45-14 on January 16.

Well, the Arizona Cardinals got rid of star receiver Larry Fitzgerald. I donít know why, but they did. Plus, thereís been rumors that sophomore quarterback Matt Leinart will be taking over the reigns in the upcoming 2010 season. This may be of some concern for all those interested in football betting because Leinart only played one game in the 2009 season. For a guy thatís supposed to take over your franchise, you better work with him a lot on his game. Last season, Leinart only played two games for the Cardinals, throwing for 316 total yards in both games, both losses, to the St. Louis Rams and to the Green Bay Packers. The good news about the Cardinalsí rushing attack is that they have a solid, two-back system with Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower. The ground game was good last season, and thereís no reason to suspect anything less in 2010.

The San Francisco 49ers had a decent season in 2009, going 8-8. Things looked pretty bad starting in week five with a 45-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The 49ers followed this beatdown by losing three more consecutive games. San Francisco ended this four game skid by narrowly escaping with a 10-6 victory over NFC North foe the Chicago Bears. If youíre into football betting then the fact that the San Francisco 49ers used two quarterbacks in the 2009 season should be of concern. The San Francisco 49ers used quarterbacks Shaun Hill and Alex Smith. Hill played the first five games of the season, and completed 87 out of 155 passes for 943 yards, five touchdowns and only two interceptions. Hillís passer rating was a mere 79.6 in those five games. On the other hand, quarterback Alex Smith did a great job spreading the ball to his receivers. In the 2009 season, Smith completed 225 out of 372 passes, which works out to 60.5 percent, he threw for 2,350 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, and three fumbles. Smithís passer rating for 2009 was 81.5, much better than that of Hillís.

The San Francisco 49ers lost about 90 percent of their games by two touchdowns or less; a few of those games came within three or four points of going in the San Francisco 49ersí favor. I think if the 49ers hadnít used Hill for the first five games of the season, then the 49ers could have very easily have gone 13-3 in their 2009 season. I think that Head Coach Mike Singletary is great for the San Francisco 49ers organization. Heís very motivated and pushes his players to succeed. Also, the 49ers finally have some young talent at the wide receiver position. Plus, even though I criticized the 49ers for using quarterback Shaun Hill for the first five games, the kid wasnít all bad.

For my choices for football betting, I would have to go with the Arizona Cardinals being back atop the NFC West pile come 2010. But I believe that that the San Francisco 49ers will be right on their heels if they can fix some of their offensive problems and get quarterback Alex Smith playing all 16 games and not starting his season after a five week break; heís your starter and most experienced player at the position, let him play and win you some games. The current favorite to win the NFC west according to www.sportsbook.com is the SF 49ers at -150. This will be a close division race that they all have a shot at.
