A Chance to Bet on a Football Game on NFL Network!

... nobody has to know that it is in the Arena Football League.

Our football withdrawals (which happen this time of year with or without a lockout) will be alleviated for tonight as the Pittsburgh Power (8-6) visit the Orlando Predators (8-6) in a game that probably has some sort of playoff implications and importance within the context of this once-popular league. Thanks to NFL Network's ratings bonanza that is Arena Football Friday, we're able to watch some meaningful(ish) football!

Pittsburgh Power +8 1/2 over the Orlando Predators

In the NFL, home field advantage is often settled by giving the visitors three points. Meaning, in an otherwise even contest, the visitors would be at +3. In front of the rowdy 2,000-plus fans at any given arena game, apparently the visitors get much more leeway. Truth be told, we think Pittsburgh has the better team.

To be fair, neither squad is playing particularly well, with Orlando losing its last three and Pittsburgh escaping the same fate with a narrow, low-scoring victory over lowly Milwaukee last week. We'll take the points.

We've got the Power!

And, fear not, fore if this doesn't work out, we will bore you to death with more stock recommendations (which have been going considerably better than our sports capping this summer).
