Does being successful at playing fantasy football translate in good football sports betting?

49ers -3 with the hook.
Key = Colin Kaepernick, How well he can play against the Raven's defense which is the best D he has faced in the playoffs.
Angle = Vic Fangio San Francisco defensive coordinator was a Ravens assistant during Flacco’s first two seasons. Yeah, I know it didn't help Falcon's D coordinator Nolan former 49ers head coach, Vic is at a higher level then Nolan.
No real convictions in this game as in 49ers spread win vs Packers & Falcons or Raven's win vs Pats. Both (49ers/Ravens) teams really look & playing great.

Can Tiger's win WS if Verlander does not win both games pitched?
Either Zito pitches well in game 1 or could be cannon fodder, Giants either way win cause they won't lose Vogelsong or Cain against the Verlander matchup.

What's there not to like?
I'am missing something here?
RG3 was impressive against the Saints for a first NFL start and broke the rookie passing record too.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 01:22 PM
Saints offense = Advantage
49ers Defense = Advantage
Special Teams = 49ers
Home Game = 49ers
Can the 49ers Dink and Dunk offense keep Brees off the field and cause a few turnovers 49ers can win it.

If both #1 & #2 defenses in the country show-up for the game, IMO would be a good wheel play for the teaser.

Until the loses to LSU Tigers and Alabama Tides.
Kansas State with two losses from the Cowboys and Sooners.
No shame for Arkansas to lose to the 2 top teams in the country.
They are battle tested in the SEC and have an excellent passing offense with a very good special teams. Kansas State is more one dimensional counting on the ground game, still teams knows its coming and still hard to stop.
Both the Big 12 (6-1) and the SEC (4-2) have had excellent bowl seasons so far, but the Cotton Bowl in Dallas is the only match-up between schools from the two conferences.
Arkansas, the third-place team in the SEC West, Kansas State the second place team in the Big 12, which went away with divisions this year.
Arkansas has won the majority of its games with an offense that averages 37.4 points a game, 14th in the nation.
Arkansas passing & special teams advantage.
Defense called even.
Razorbacks -7 hook

If it comes down to a close game or OT can Virginia Tech's new FG kicker Justin Myer which has missed his only two field goal tries this season & Alabama Cade Foster (If he Plays) has been one of the worst kickers in the nation in 2011.
My leans would be Michigan & LSU.

All these games could have gone either way and normally I usually get the Moose These 4 games in the 4th qtr in my mind was lost and due to some Miracle won.
Florida State -3

Granted both defense's are horrid, might as well take the RG3 Bear scoring machine vs the Huskies Dog Sled Team!
I have NO FEAR of the Heisman Trophy jinx!

What's up with this?
Looks to good to be true?
What I'am missing here?

My pick would be on Bama.
I know it sucks to see LSU and Bama play again, but I think they are the 2 best teams in the nation.
As a gamer I would not mind seeing LSU and OSU in the BCS Championship and leaning toward LSU, depends on the line.

Raider's lost the last Two games to division rivals Kansas City and Denver at Home.
Philip Rivers played well against the Packers last game and has TE Antonio Gates back. If the Charger's can't beat the Raider's at home in this important national TV matchup then they belong in the trash can.
The only edge the Raider's have is the Trends which could be just rear view betting.

Safe Harbor Disclaimer ...lol
I'm feeling pretty confident the Tides defense can handle the Tigers Offense.
To keep the game close, LSU defense will need to slow down Trent Richardson then the pass defense will be much more effective.
Richardson the Heisman hopeful will be the key if the Tides will have a successful passing game to pull away.

I think the Steelers should be the favorite, I'll take the bet.
I don't see the Packers defense shutting down Big Ben's offense. They just beat 2 of the best defensive teams (Ravens and Jets) in the playoffs by running & passing.
The Packers does have a great offense with Rogers at QB, still no real running game, it's on his shoulders.
Steeler's Defense has not meet the quality offense's in the playoffs. (Raven's & Jets), if Rogers is on, the Steeler's defense will have it's hands full.
The Packers played horrid against the Bears, WTF giving up 2 TD's to a bench warming QB. Roger's played really terrible during the 2nd half game, it's like he was choking, missing wide open receivers on short passes. Of course the Packers can turn it around for the Super Bowl, it's just seeing the GB defense & Rogers breaking down that has me taking the Steeler's.
I'll take Big Ben's experience and Steeler's D over the Packers.

Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher doesn’t believe his old team will win the AFC Championship Game and make it to this year's Super Bowl.
During a recent interview on WFAN Radio in New York, Cowher picked the Jets to win their third consecutive road playoff game this Sunday in Pittsburgh, where he was the head coach for 15 years.
Posted Monday, January 17, 2011 07:58 PM
Road to the Super Bowl beaten the Colts & Pats.
Ravens had a chance to win the Pit game and just blew it.
Jets a very similar team as the Ravens with a great D with a better offense.
I have a good feeling the Jets can get pass Ben and crew, the AFC should win the SB!

Ravens +7.5 (-220)
Likes the Ravens +3, getting +7.5 is like a gift hopefully.
GB & Atlanta Over 36.5 (-260)
Dont have a good feeling who would win GB or Atlanta, went with the total.
