HEADLINE PLAY
     
Coaching Bubble
By Dennis Ranahan

Two teams that hope to crack the playoff field next January meet tonight in Jacksonville when the Jaguars host the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have been in the playoff field seven times under head coach Marvin Lewis, including the past five seasons. During that time they have won the AFC North Division four times and qualified for the playoffs as a wildcard entrant three times.

Problem is, despite seven trips to the postseason the Bengals have no playoff wins under Lewis. The Pittsburgh Steelers have beaten them twice in the playoffs in Cincinnati, in 2005 when the Steelers went on to win the Super Bowl and last season. The other five playoff losses in order beginning in 2009 were against the New York Jets, Houston Texans twice, San Diego Chargers and Indianapolis Colts.

Oh for seven is horrible … making the playoffs seven times in 13 years as head coach sounds darn right good. Unless the Bengals get a postseason win this year one might think the thin strand that is holding Lewis in as head coach may finally snap.

As for the Jacksonville Jaguars, they have not had a winning season since qualifying for the playoffs as a wildcard team in 2007. That year, under then head coach Jack Del Rio, the Jaguars lost to the New England Patriots in the year Bill Belichick and company took a perfect record into Super Bowl XLII against the New York Giants.

The Jaguars are coached by Gus Bradley who is beginning his fourth season in Jacksonville. The Jaguars have not yet broken through with more wins than losses during Bradley’s tenure but most football observers are of the opinion that this is an organization that is on the right track. They have who they expect to be the quarterback to take them to the promise land in third-year starter Blake Bortles, and the skill position players working with the young quarterback are among the best in football.


Banking Two Thoughts
About Money

By Dennis Ranahan

Now, I want to be really careful how I state this and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. So, let me state it clearly and then I respectfully ask you to read the whole article so you know what I mean.

It’s not about the money.

Okay, don’t overreact to that statement, but rather open up to the possibility of holding two thoughts at the same time; it’s not about the money and it’s all about the money.

Those two statements are not in opposition, but rather a key factor in turning sports wagering from an emotional rollercoaster to a steady-as-she-goes investment. Here’s why, the books prey on the emotions of gamblers who are quick to predictable actions that almost always leave them in the red. Why? Because gamblers wager more when they are ahead until they no longer are while thinking they are playing with “house” money. In an even worse scenario, some bet more when they are behind in an attempt to get even until they have lost much more than they ever thought they would risk.

Gamblers often base their wagers not on the strength of a point spread proposition, but rather on the success or failure of the previous result. In other words, past money wins or losses are determining current wager amounts.

That’s what I mean when I say it’s not about the money. A wager should never be about the money and only about the strength of the current point spread proposition. The amount wagered on a particular game should only be based on the value of that play … not what happened in any previous result.

When that method is followed the only thing that really matters can be realized, bottom line profits. Because, and never lose sight of this … it’s all about the money.
