    NFL Camp Competition (07/24/13)

    By John Ewing
    With NFL training camps underway we check in on a few key position battles around the league including NFL rookies. (2013 projections for rookies are based on this analysis which projects rookie seasons for all NFL prospects as if they were starters on average NFL teams).


     
    There are many position battles occurring around the league. This series will look at some of the most prominent clashes occurring in NFL training camps. Previous competitions: Jets QB
     
    Buffalo Bills – Quarterback battle

    Challenger: Kevin Kolb
    2012 stats – 1,169 yards, 8 TDs, 3 INTs
    This quarterback competition is truly wide open as there is no incumbent. Kolb signed with Buffalo in free agency this year. Kolb had led the Arizona Cardinals to a 4-0 start before suffering a rib injury that ended his season last year. Kolb has been effective as a starter in the NFL but injuries have plagued his career. If he can stay on the field he may give the Bills the best chance to win.
     
    Challenger: E.J. Manuel
    2013 projections – 3,589 yards, 18.5 TDs, 17.3 INTs
    The Bills surprised many when they drafted Manuel at No. 16 in the NFL Draft this spring, making him the first quarterback taken (he was fourth in our rankings). After the success of Luck, Griffin, and Wilson last season some Bills fans might expect Manuel to not only start but to win in his rookie campaign. Manuel is a strong-armed mobile player that has the ability to succeed in the NFL but he will have to overcome inconsistency that dogged his collegiate career.
     
    Challenger: Jeff Tuel
    2013 projections – 3,274 yards, 15.3 TDs, 18.3 INTs
    After the Bills released backup Tarvaris Jackson, new head coach Doug Marrone said either Kolb or Manuel would be the starter. Tuel, a Washington State product and undrafted free agent, is probably just happy to be listed on the depth chart. Then again, Russell Wilson was the third man on the depth chart heading into training camp when he beat out the aforementioned Jackson and Matt Flynn.

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
