This Year’s NFL Season Could Be One For the Ages

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Sep-09 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Although questions about how COVID-19 will affect the NFL remain, most football fans, analysts, players and coaches have turned their attention to the start of the 2020 season. The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans in the first official game on Thursday, September 10. From September 10 to January 3, the National Football League hopes to play seventeen weeks of uninterrupted football before turning their attention to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The new season means more to pay per head bookies than it may to anyone else other than NFL players. Even during years when the NCAA has a Men’s College Basketball Tournament, betting handle drops off 20% to 30% after football season.

Now that the NFL is back, bookies, especially, are excited about the upcoming season and Payperhead.com is seeing an increase in new agents. One experienced bookmaker said that 90% to 95% of his revenue comes from NFL betting. “I provide wagering services to fifteen people. They all bet on pro football. So, am I excited about the upcoming season? I’m enthralled!”

The coronavirus pandemic has already made the 2020 NFL Season unique. Many teams won’t play in front of fans. Teams that will allow fans, like the Atlanta Falcons, won’t play in front of full capacity stadiums. The lack of fans shouldn’t affect play on the field, as most people will be at home this winter watching the games across the country.

What could happen on the field is why so many are thrilled about this upcoming NFL season. It’s difficult to remember a time when an impact player like Tom Brady left his current team. Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots, a squad he won six Super Bowls with, to play for Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only did Brady leave the Patriots but he ended up in the same division, the AFC South, as Drew Brees. The New Orleans Saints quarterback holds five NFL records. Brees and Brady face-off in Week 1 on Sunday, September 13.

Another quarterback battle has developed in the AFC. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes won the 2018 NFL MVP. The Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson won the 2019 award. Mahomes and Jackson are the favorites to win the 2020 Most Valuable Player Award. Also, their respective teams are the two favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl.

Tampa Bay and New Orleans in the NFC, along with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, should spend all season jockeying for playoff positioning. In the AFC, the New England Patriots, who signed 2015 MVP Cam Newton to replace Brady, and Baltimore’s chief rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, also figure to challenge for the conference championship.

As NFL Season Draws Closer, Bookies Switch to New Software Providers

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-20 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Although the coronavirus pandemic represented a bump in the road, the Global Sports Betting Market is on track to reach $155.4 billion by 2024. The trajectory, which represents a compound growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%, can mostly be attributed to a couple of sports. By far, international sports bettors wager on soccer. In the U.S., football is the players’ betting sport of choice.

As the online sports betting continues to grow more bookies are looking for more established software companies like Payperhead.com to grow their businesses. Pay per head agents, those who use bookie software to run their sportsbooks, can expect the NFL to generate 2020 revenue in line with what they saw in 2019. In some cases, this NFL Season may generate more since players remain hesitant about visiting brick and mortar betting establishments.

Every year, the National Football League’s annual Super Bowl attracts the most wagering dollars of any single event. In 2018, the Super Bowl generated $158 million in handle. Some sports bettors wager exclusively on NFL football games. Their biggest bet of the year is on the Super Bowl.

Although the Big Ten and Pac 12 won’t have football this fall, the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 will. Also, the NFL is on track to start their season on time in September. The lack of Big Ten and Pac 12 games should have a negligible effect on football betting numbers. Most sports handicappers will turn their attention to SEC, ACC, and Big 12 college games.

Some pph sportsbook agents have already started the push for football wagering dollars. One agent who wished to remain anonymous said that he sent out the NFL’s opt-out list to his players a day after the league released it to the public.

The National Football League told players that they had until August 6 to opt-out of playing in the upcoming season. Players were compensated either $150,000 or $350,000 depending on their opt-out reason. On August 7, a per head agent copied the list and emailed it to his players. “I wanted to give my players information that can help them plan for the season.”

Customer care isn’t the only thing the agent did. He recently switched pay per head software providers, moving to a shop that offered credit card transactions. “Some of my players didn’t want to meet in person. Now, all they must do is use the system to pay me via credit card. I can also make payouts directly to their cards, which makes them happy.”

Although credit card transactions were the most important aspect that led to the switch, the bookmaking agent said that wasn’t the lone reason. “My players don’t wager much on NBA and MLB. So, I didn’t see much of a change in revenue. But losing the NCAA Basketball Tournament was huge. That’s my second best profit generator.”

“I had to find a pay per head shop that made it easy for me to import my players and offered more than my current provider did,” the agent said.

The agent added, “I don’t mind paying a higher per head fee because I can’t take the chance. I’ve got to try and make up the lost college basketball tournament profit with football betting.”

Knuckles Sports Bar unveils new menu Highlighted by the All-American Favorite Chicken wings

Americans chowed down on 1.23 billion chicken wings while celebrating Super Bowl Sunday last season.

Monterey, CA, September 06, 2019 – Americans chowed down on 1.23 billion chicken wings while celebrating Super Bowl Sunday last season. When it comes to big games and the most popular protein on the planet, Knuckles Sports Bar inside Hyatt Regency Monterey pairs them perfectly.

The spicy, sticky snack highlights the eclectic new menu at Knuckles, voted Monterey’s favorite sports bar for 16 straight years.

Invented in the 1960s at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y., hot wings have become a national phenomenon, and Knuckles has raised the bar while lowering the price.

Prepared four ways — with All-American Hot Sauce, Smoked Habanero Peach Sauce, Summer BBQ Sauce or Pedro’s “AY Chihuahua” Sauce — Knuckles offers Happy Hour wings for just $1 each.

With those bargain prices, guests can easily enjoy a few dozen, or try to break the world record (444 wings in 26 minutes), set at the 2015 Wing Bowl (the world championship of wing eating).

The new Knuckles menu goes far deeper than wings, of course. From Ultimate Nachos to House-made Pretzel Sticks to Steak Frites, there is something for everyone at this family-friendly sports bar.

Burger fans will enjoy a wide range of options, from Knuckles’ famous Surf & Turf Burger (Strauss grass-fed beef, tarragon aioli, and butter-poached crab and lobster) to the conventional Brass Knuckles Burger with smoked cheddar. Or be bold with a Muay Thai Spiced Turkey Burger with cucumber, pickled onions and mint.

When it comes to hand-held favorites, don’t forget tacos. Knuckles prepares them with either crispy shrimp, shredded chicken or beef — served with toppings of shredded cabbage, pico de gallo and chipotle aioli. Or how about a Fried Chicken “Sammie” with coleslaw, pickles, jalapeños and red onions?

Vegetarians will love a wide array of options, including Tomato, Avocado & Quinoa Salad (with roasted corn and cilantro vinaigrette), Marinated Portobello Sandwich (with provolone, arugula, roasted tomato and pesto aioli), or Tofu Poke Rice Bowl (with quinoa, avocado, tomato, cucumber and sesame soy sauce).

Knuckles doesn’t slouch when it comes to a proper sit-down meal, either, offering entrees featuring Seared Salmon with Grilled Asparagus and Roasted Marble Potatoes, or Grilled Petaluma Farms Chicken Breast with Honey-Stung Brussels Sprouts.
