Highlight of the Sugar Bowl and Betting on the NFL
by Marion Brookes
The 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl between the Florida Gators and the Louisville Cardinals took place on 2nd at Louisiana’s Superdome. This was the first Sugar Bowl appearance for Louisville Cardinals, though it was the third time that the two teams had faced each other, and Florida had won the previous two. However this time the tables were turned and the Cardinals went on to beat the Gators 33 to 23, a result that was considered to be an upset, in fact it was only the third time that the underdog had ever won the Sugar Bowl. Teddy Bridgewater, the Louisville quarterback, was named man of the match. Had you bet on the Louisville Cardinals to win, then you would be sitting on a tidy profit, particularly if you had bet on the spread. Florida Gators were favored by14 points.
The new NFL season gets underway in the latter part of April and odds on the season opening matches have been posted. It is always a great time to get in with some speculative bets on the Superbowl, particularly if you are looking for some casino type of odds. New England Patriots are the favorite at 6/1, but if you are a little more adventurous you can get 18/1 on the Pittsburgh Steelers, and 25/1 on the Dallas Cowboys, which should be worth a small punt at least. Naturally there are also some outlandish odds out there too, but betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars, even at 200/1, is not really recommended.
NFL is celebrated in a number of themed slot games that you can play at your favorite online casino such as http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-slots/. One of these is $5 Million Touchdown, which has a great 15,000 coin jackpot and where all the symbols are based on American Football, including cheer leaders, goal posts, football moves such as tackling, kicking and throwing. You will also love the bonus feature where you select players to whom the ball should be passed and each time a pass is successful your bonus is increased. The bonus accumulator stops when a player fumbles the ball or if there is a touchdown. Other great NFL games include Pigskin Payout and Fruit Bowl XXV, so why not take a look.
