With the 2011/12 NFL season now underway, American football betting fans
across the United States are settling in for what should be an exhilarating
season. With the memory of last year's Super Bowl still fresh in the minds of
NFL gambling fans, one of the biggest questions being asked right now is whether
the defending NFL champions, the Green Bay, will be able to repeat
their magnificent feat this season, and make it all the way back to the Super
Bowl in 2012.
A very good question indeed, and one whose answer will reveal itself as the
season progresses. Another question being asked by NFL betting fans is how
good Indianapolis Colts will be this season, considering they lost their star
quarterback, Peyton Manning. It's questions like these that will
largely determine the NFL odds this season, and provide NFL gambling fans like
you and I with the kind of heads up we need to make smart NFL betting decisions.
While most games in the NFL is important, there are definitely a few key NFL
games that have more riding on them, and not just regarding the amount of money
wagered on them, but the overall effect they'll have on the season and NFL odds
in general. It's these NFL key games that could 'make or break' the NFL gambling
season if you will, which is why it is so crucial to have a handle on them. In
fact, it's for this reason that we have compiled a list of NFL key games.
Take for instance the upcoming showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers and
the Baltimore Ravens from the AFC North decision. Being such bitter rivals,
games between these two teams rarely fail to attract substantial NFL betting
action. And for good reason, they are both top-rated teams. That said, over the
last few seasons the Steelers have been the dominant team. So all eyes will be
on this match-up to see if Pittsburgh can keep Baltimore at bay, yet again.
Consider other key NFL games like when the Indianapolis Colts take on their
old AFC South divisional rivals, the Tennessee Titans, or the Giants against the
Dallas Cowboys. Only time will tell what happens in these key matchups. But to give yourself a head
