NFL Football Betting - NFC Quarterback Liabilities

NFL football betting in 2008 saw the St. Louis Rams degenerate into one of the worst commodities in pro football betting as they were horrible on both sides of the line.

NFL football betting fortunes for St. Louis will not improve until they get more effective pro football betting production from the quarterback position.  St. Louis quarterback Marc Bulger was a significant cause for the Rams horrible NFL football betting season in 2008.

Bulger finished the pro football betting campaign ranked 30th out of 32 in the quarterback ratings with a 71.4 and an embarrassing 11/13 touchdown/interception ratio.  St. Louis beat the NFL football betting line just 6 out of 16 times thanks in large part to this ineptitude.

Gus Frerotte was the starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings for much of the 2008 NFL football betting season and the results were not pretty.  Frerotte finished 28th in all of NFL football betting with a 73.7 quarterback rating and a 12/15 touchdown/interception ratio.

Like the Rams the Vikings covered just 6 out of 16 NFL football betting appearances in the regular season last year.

The Detroit Lions had many reasons for pulling off the first ever 0-16 straight up NFL football betting season and amongst the main reasons was the performance of quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who finished 29th in the league with a 72.6 quarterback rating. Detroit got the cash in just 7 out of 16 games last year.

The Chicago Bears beat the NFL football betting odds in just 6 out of 16 games last year in large part because of the quarterbacking of Kyle Orton, who ranked just 25th in the league with a 79.6 rating.  Orton’s poor season likely cost the Bears a playoff spot as they limped home with a 9-7 straight up record thanks primarily to their defense.

Another bad performance last year was by Jason Campbell of the Washington Redskins, who had an 84.3 rating as Washington covered just 6 games against the spread.  With the NFC having so many weak quarterbacks, there will be good opportunities for mismatches in 2009.
