For the gambler in you, Week 13

Each Saturday, we’ll take the best -- and most clever -- odds collected by for the upcoming week and give our take. This is important stuff, perhaps the most important post you’ll read all week. Because if you can’t lose money while watching a game in which you have absolutely no effect, what’s the point of watching sports at all?

Will Ndamukong Suh be fined by the NFL between Week 13 until the Lions season is over including playoffs?     

Yes 2/1      

OK, let’s think about this. He’ll miss Week 13 because of his suspension and he very well could miss Week 14 if his appeals officer Art Shell doesn’t modify his original two-game suspension. So, it could be Week 15 before Suh even takes the field, and that means he’d have to avoid excessive penalties in the final three regular-season games. I think he could do that. The wild card here, though, is whether, well, the Lions can win the wild card. Playoff games mean Suh has a better chance of getting fined and affecting this bet. Even so, I’d go no. At some point, you’d have to think he’ll learn his lesson (for this season at least). My guess is that he’ll tone it down and save himself some money.

What will be Andy Reid's role be Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season? 
Head coach of the Eagles  4/5

Head coach of another NFL Team 5/4       

Not coaching in NFL 5/1

I still think Reid will survive this season in Philadelphia. If not, he’ll be hired immediately by somebody else. I’d go with anything but “not coaching in NFL.”

Will Tim Tebow complete a pass in the 1st quarter Week 13? 

Yes -600    

No +400

That this is even a prop bet is hilarious. If you have some extra money to burn, bet No. Because if Tebow goes 0-fer in the first 15 minutes of the game, you can laugh and then take your pile of money to the bank.

Will Rob Gronkowski break the TE record of 13 TD's in a single season?       

Yes -300    

No +200    

Word on the street is that Bill Belichick enjoys a good Gronk spike* as much as the next guy. So, yes, Gronkowski -- who’s recorded 11 touchdowns so far this season -- will break the record. Because Belichick wants him to do exactly that.

*This might or might not be true.
