Sportsbook Odds - Sportsbook Odds respect continues to grow for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as they refuse to fold in their quest for a NFL betting post season spot.

Football gambling respect is also high for the Detroit Lions with sharp handicappers as they are proving to be one of the best values on the board in NFL gambling.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Detroit Lions on Sunday with a telecast on FOX set to start at 1 PM ET. Brobury opened with Tampa Bay as a 6 point favorite and with a total of 42.
Detroit is coming off a major 7-3 upset win over Green Bay with the football betting odds as 7 point home dogs to improve their record to 3-10 straight up and 9-4 against the spread with 9 of their games going over the total. The Lions snapped a 5 game losing streak and continue to provide phenomenal board value to bargain hunting handicappers.

Detroit has also shown noticeable improvement on the field which has helped their value as they rank 16th overall for scoring offense and 18th for total defense. Drew Stanton got the start at quarterback last week and is likely to start again at Tampa.

The Buccaneers are 8-5 straight up and 8-4-1 with the pro football betting lines as they are coming off a 17-16 win/push at Washington last week as the Redskins botched a game tying extra point attempt at the end of regulation.

The Bucs rank 12th for scoring defense and 22nd for scoring offense. Josh Freeman, who had a rough rookie season last year, has improved to have an 87.9 QB rating with a 17/6 TD/INT ratio. Tampa Bay is in the thick of the NFC wild card race as they trail Atlanta and New Orleans in the NFC South Division race.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
