Davon House: “We Just Took Another Huge Step Toward the Super Bowl"

Davon House: “We Just Took Another Huge Step Toward the Super Bowl"

Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House updated his personal website, DavonHouse31.com, on Thursday with a post reacting to the free-agent signing of Julius Peppers:

Adding Julius Peppers was a great move. When I heard that, my first thought was, “We just took another huge step toward the Super Bowl.” It’s going to make a big difference. A lot more tipped balls are going to be coming our way from his side. He’s 6’7”. He gets his hands on a lot of throws.

It’s also going to free up some guys on the other side of the defense. Blockers have to account for him on the other side. Instead of just identifying where Clay is, they have to identify where Julius is, too. That will do a lot for our defense.

House also gave his take on several other topics, including the Packers re-signing B.J. Raji and Sam Shields, preparing for the birth of his first child and his offseason workout routine.

lets hope the back field can do the same :)

Lots of QB pressure makes any backfield better.

Peppers touched more balls than all of our safeties combined last year.

For anyone who's interested, here are the latest Las Vegas Future Odds to win next years SB in this order.

SEATTLE 9/2
SAN FRAN 7-1
DEN 15/2
NE 8-1
GB 18-1

GB has dropped from 20-1 Las Vegas must really like Seattle to repeat. Last year was the 1st year in quite some time, that both opening Favorites from the AFC & NFC met in the SB. Only 2 SB Champions since 2004 have won a Playoff Game, NE & NY

Tom you night owl. WTF time zone are you in? Might just put a few hundred on GB at 18-1. I don't like betting with the Pack either, but have some extra cash lying around.

4thand1, I'm in WI, CST. I usually stay up to 1:30 or 2:00AM. I sleep till 10:30 - 11:00. Every day is Saturday for me. I won't be in Vegas until
May 6th. I hope GB don't drop too much more. I'll be Future betting them. I don't bet them during the season. #1, you should never bet your home team, & #2 GB has such a following, they get a ton of $$$ bet on them every week. I don't know this for fact, but GB has to be one of the worst teams in the league for covering. They don't cover when they win, & they don't cover if they lose. The money most of the time loses (Doesn't Cover). You can think what you want, but BF was up against it his entire career, & now AR seems to be facing the same thing. It seems the only time they cover, is Double Didgits, or when you don't think they should.

I also bet trends. Who ever Seattle is playing their 1st Playoff game, if they make the Playoffs, I'll have a few $$$ on. Over the last 10 years, that's been a 80% winner. See if that holds true for this year.

That sounds convincing! But it's not true.
2013: 6-10 against the spread
2012: 9-7 against the spread
2011: 11-5 against the spread
2010: 9-7 against the spread

So the only recent year they haven't beaten the spread overall is the year with the Rodgers injury (and subsequent uncertainty about his playing the rest of the season).

Don't get me wrong: I don't think you should bet on the Packers either. But that's because of the house edge of ~4.5%, which any individual bettor is unlikely to beat over any reasonably large sample of games. But it doesn't appear that the Packers are a bad bet compared to any other team. And maybe even a little less bad!

Hi TK CA, Thanks for the reply. That really surprises me!! I said I didn't know for a fact. I don't bet GB, but it sure seems to me that they don't have a winning % against the spread. I guess I was wrong, & apologize for the misinformation. The only thing I would add in defense, is the times they cover the $$$ is the other way, but that surprises me too. Games like the Dallas game, or Chicago last year. You wouldn't have expected GB to cover & yet they did. They are a tough team to pick against the spread. that's what I should have said, & I believe that's true.
I would venture to say, that most of those wins, most betters would lay off, or go the other way. I should have put it that way, without having the facts. Thanks for correcting my mistake.

Hi TK CA, If you do any amount of Pro Football betting, I'd really enjoy posting & replying with you. I have my own style, & it works pretty well for me. I'm always searching for how other betters think. Knowledge is King. I guess you'd call me a contrarian. That's how I learned, & it seems to work week after week. would like to hear back from you. LVT

Hey - thanks for the reply. I'm not a bettor - just a natural born skeptic. :-) Sounds like we might be cut from the same cloth, though maybe it pulls us in different directions. (For me, it's occasional poker.)

Take care, though. And good luck!

(And go Pack!)

TK_CA's picture

Oh... and no reason to apologize, either. In the back of my mind, I had figured the Pack would be long-term losers against the spread, for just the reasons you mentioned (especially the active fan base). But I thought I'd double-check, and found out that for whatever reason, it's the reverse. Anyway, no harm done.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Hi TK CA I guess I said wrong what I wanted to say. I did actually think that GB was Poor against the spread. IMO, & this comes from my thinking about betting. I wish I could look back on all the games GB covered going back through BF career. I always feel the Money mostly loses. In some games, the big money could be on the o/u. I'd like to be able to see the spreads that GB covered, & what the situation was at the time. GB never seems to cover a 3 pt line, whether it's + or -. Like I said, It's my opinion, they are a tough team to pick. They seem to cover games they shouldn't, like Dallas & Chicago last year, & they don't seem to cover the ones they should, like Atlanta this year. I can't remember any others. Keep an eye on the spread this next season. See how it goes. Nice talking to you!! LVT

4thand1's picture

I thought the same thing. Seemed like they hardly ever covered.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

4thand1, Yeah it surprised me too, but I don't keep track of who covers? I still say those are games that the $$$ had to be the other way, Big Spreads or on the O/U, or Games it would be hard to touch, like Dallas & Chicago last year. Kind of like our SB run. We were Dogs all the way. If we could have just beaten SF, I'm convinced we would have made it to Seattle as a Dog & Won. Revenge & Rogers. I wanted that game.

Keeping anyone who is interested updated. Piss's me off. GB has dropped to 15-1 for SB betting. Buy the time I get there May 6th, they'll be 8-1 again. Here are the current Las Vegas odds to win the SB

SEATTLE 6-1
DENVER 6-1
SAN FRAN 8-1
NE 8-1
GB 15-1
NO 20-1

Fifth best odds? That can't be right. I've been assured by many qualified posters on this here site that the Packers are on the decline, that 8-8 is the new normal, that they will be hard-pressed to even make the playoffs next year and that there are no less than two dozen teams who are more talented.

DDirk's picture

Evan- nice reply. LVT, you might be able to place futures via phone by the way. I haven't done it but it could be worth calling the casino sports book.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

DDirk, Thanks for the reply. I can send money out there if I want to. I just may do that. GB'S the only team that's really moving. They will be down to 7 or 8 at some point. I have a home there. If they drop again, I'll send some cash to my manager or host. LVT

Evan, I hope everyone feels that way come September. For me, the more the other side the better. I'd like everyone to think that way. When I get to Vegas May 6th, I'm going to RUN to the window.
