Should I invest in an inground basketball hoop?

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Health & Fitness Parenting Real Estate Sports & Athletics  should invest inground basketball

Whether you decide to invest in an inground basketball hoop or the portable type of basketball hoop, you will have made a good decision. This is because a basketball hoop is one of the best ways to learn how to play basketball. It also helps you to keep fit and healthy because you will be practicing basketball skills while just at home. You may also benefit because the basketball hoop is one of the best ways to interact with your family members and your friends. One of the best ways to learn about the various basketball hoops is to visit https://ironcityshowdown.com/best-basketball-hoop/in-ground/ website. Here, you will learn about the 3 types of basketball hoops you can invest in such as the in-ground hoops, the portable basketball hoops, and the mounted type of hoops.

When it comes to the choice of basketball hoops, several factors make the inground hoops a good choice over the other types. They are heavy-duty, more long-lasting, sturdy, and many other good reasons.

Here are reasons why you should invest in an in-ground basketball hoop:

  1.   It increases the value of your home

An in-ground basketball hoop is one of the things that can add value to your home. This means you can get better resale value for the home when you decide to sell it. You see, many people nowadays consider the health aspect of the home on sale. People want to know if such a home has any added advantages such as accessibility, health facilities, and so on. With the in-ground basketball hoops, many homeowners will be happy with the permanent nature of the item.

  1.   In-ground hoops are adjustable

This is another factor that makes in-ground basketball hoops good for your needs. The fact that these hoops can be adjusted means that all members of the family can benefit from their use. You can lower or raise the hoop so that even your kids can use them. The adjustable height makes them accessible to all people regardless of their height. It also means that your kids can use the hoops even when they grow into adults as they can adjust these with time, based on their increasing height.

  1.   Stability

One of the reasons portable hoops may not be suitable is that they are not stable. With the in-ground hoops, you are assured of stability. As such, you can be assured of stability during dunks. You can also be assured that your shots will be more accurate due to the stability of the in-ground hoops. You see, if the hoops are not stable, your shots may not be accurate since the entire experience is distracted.

  1.   Durability

In-ground hoops are more durable when compared to the movable type. In general, these kinds of hoops are more durable because once they are fixed on the ground, they will not need to be moved around. As such, they can withstand the test of time because they are made from materials that last longer. In the long run, these kinds of hoops prove much cheaper because you will not have to keep replacing them.

 

NFC Wildcard Betting Notes for 01/08-9/21

 

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings NFL Forecasting NFL Picks Sports Betting  wildcard notes betting  Saturday 4:40 p.m. ET: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks

This NFC West showdown between division rivals is the middle game of Saturday’s tripleheader. The Rams (10-6 SU, 9-7 ATS) squeaked into the playoffs as the 6-seed, beating the Cardinals 18-7 as 1-point home favorites in the regular season finale. Los Angeles finished + 76 in point differential on the season. The Rams will lean on the coaching on Sean McVay and their stellar defense as they once again turn to rookie John Wolford in place of the injured Jared Goff. Wolford won his debut over Arizona last week, throwing for 231 yards, no touchdowns, 1 interception and rushed for 56 yards. Meanwhile, the Seahawks (12-4 SU, 8-8 ATS) finished the regular season on a high-note, winning four straight and beating the 49ers 26-23 in Week 17, although they failed to cover as 7-point road favorites. Seattle won the NFC West and earned the 3-seed, finishing + 88 in point differential for the season. This line opened with Seattle listed as a 4.5-point home favorite. This public is laying the short spread with Russell Wilson at home. However, we’ve seen a sharp move to the road dog, with the Rams falling from + 4.5 to + 4. Some shops are even touching 3.5. Playoff dogs with a line move in their favor of at least a half-point are roughly 75% ATS over the past decade. The Rams also have value as a divisional dog and a dog with a low total. The total has dipped slightly from 43 to 42.5. Both of these teams were profitable to the under this season, with the Rams 12-4 and Seahawks 9-7. John Hussey, the lead ref, has historically favored unders (57%). Outdoor playoff unders are roughly 57% over the past decade. The Seahawks beat the Rams 20-9 in Week 16. Los Angeles beat Seattle 23-16 in Week 10.

Saturday 8:15 p.m. ET: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Football Team

This primetime non-conference matchup is the late game on Saturday night. Tom Brady has led the Buccaneers (11-5 SU, 9-7 ATS) to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Tampa Bay played their best football down the stretch, winning their final four games and waxing the Falcons 44-27 in Week 17, easily covering as 7-point home favorites. Tampa enters as the 5-seed and finished + 137 in point differential. Meanwhile, Washington (7-9 SU, 8-7-1 ATS) snuck into the playoffs by beating the Eagles 20-14 in Week 17, although they failed to cover as 6.5-point road favorites. Washington went 5-2 down the stretch and won the NFC East, earning the 4-seed. This line opened with the Bucs listed as a hefty 7.5-point or 8-point road favorite. The public is absolutely hammering Brady and the Bucs, expecting an easy win and cover. This lopsided action moved the line up to Tampa -9. That’s when we saw some buyback on Washington, dropping the line back to 8.5. Washington is your top contrarian play of the weekend as they are only receiving about one-third of bets in a primetime game. Big playoff dogs of + 7 or more are roughly 57% ATS over the past decade. Tampa Bay is in prime teaser territory. If you drop them from -8.5 to -2.5 you pass through two key numbers (7 and 3). We’ve also seen some under money show up, dropping the total from 46.5 to 45. The Bucs are 9-7 to the over this season, but Washington is 10-5-1 to the under. This under matches a pair of profitable playoff systems: outdoor unders and Wild Card unders that drop (roughly 60% over the past decade).

Sunday 4:40 p.m. ET: Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints

This NFC late-afternoon Sunday showdown features the biggest spread of Wild Card Weekend. The Bears (8-8 SU, 8-8 ATS) got crushed by the Packers 35-16 in Week 17, failing to cover as 4.5-point home dogs. However, Chicago still snuck into the playoffs as the 7th and final seed thanks to a tie-breaker over the Cardinals. Chicago finished the regular season + 2 in point differential, second worst of all playoffs teams ahead of only Cleveland (-11). Meanwhile, the Saints (12-4 SU, 9-6-1 ATS) won the NFC South and finished tied for the second-best record in the conference, trailing only the Packers. New Orleans crushed Carolina 33-7 in Week 17, easily covering as 6-point road favorites. The Saints finished + 145 in point differential, best in the NFC. This line opened with New Orleans listed as a 9.5-point home favorite. This public is all over the Saints and happy to fade Mitchell Trubisky. This lopsided support has pushed the line up to the key number of 10. We’ve seen some buyback on the Bears at + 10, with juice hinting toward a possible drop back to 9.5. Chicago has value as a contrarian playoff dog with an inflated line. Big playoff dogs of + 7 or more are roughly 57% ATS over the past decade. We’ve also seen some under money hit the market, dropping the total from 47.5 to 47. The Saints were 10-6 to the over this season, with Chicago 8-8. Playoff dome game overs are roughly 70% over the past decade. The big question mark here is Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. Both are questionable.

Tips for finding clues while playing escape games

The escape rooms of Escape Hour are extremely popular since they
have been developed after extensive research. Each escape room in
Edmonton
as well as Calgary is designed with great attention to

detail to create an immersive experience for the players, so that
they forget that they are only playing a game. Though there are
five different escape rooms in Edmonton, the theme and design of
each locker room is completely different. So players who have
successfully completed the escape game in Edmonton, will often try
the other escape games, they will find that there is so similarity
at all.

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Adventure Sports Arts & Entertainment Parenting  while style playing finding color clues 013369

One of the most important activities while playing the escape
game is finding the clues required which will provide the
information the players require to exit the room. Before the escape
game will start, the game master will explain the rules of the game
to the players. This will often include information on where the
clues are likely to be located. While the clues will be found
somewhere in the escape room, usually it is not necessary to break
open or damage any item to find the clues.

It is also important for the team members to have an open mind ,
so that some of the more obvious clues are not ignored due to
prejudices.

Depending on the design of the escape room, the clues may be
located anywhere. In some cases, the clues will be found on the
ceiling, while in other cases, they may be hidden behind paintings,
books or other items. It is also important to communicate well with
other team members, so that everyone can contribute. Often one
member of the team may not be able to find the clue required, since
he may overlook it, so other members should also be given the
opportunity to have a look at the area.

It is also advisable to remain patient and not feel frustrated
if the team members are not able to find the clues they
require.

One of the main advantages of playing escape games at Escape
Hour is that the game master is closely monitoring the activities
of the players using cameras and microphones. So if the players are
not getting the clues they require for exiting the game, the game
master will usually provide some hints to the team, which could
help them find the clues they require. There is also a provision
for players to ask the game master for help if they are facing
problems finding the clues or solving the puzzles. Finding clues is
an important part of the escape game and these tips should
help.

 

More Than You Want to Know about Betting NFL Teasers

CHRISTMAS NFL BETTING REPORT – Vikings Versus Saints

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Sports Betting Statistics Team News  vikings versus saints report christmas betting  4:30 p.m. ET: Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints

This late afternoon Christmas Day showdown features a pair of NFC opponents looking to snap two-game losing skids. The Vikings (6-8 SU, 6-8 ATS) just fell to the Bears 33-27 last week, losing outright as 3-point home favorites. Minnesota is technically still alive for a playoff spot but would need to win their final two games and get some serious help in order to sneak in. Meanwhile, the Saints (10-4 SU 7-6-1 ATS) just lost to the Chiefs 32-29, pushing as 3-point home dogs. New Orleans has already clinched a playoff spot and is currently the 2-seed in the NFC. They could rise as high as the 1-seed or fall to the 3-seed depending on how the final two games play out. Minnesota is -28 in point differential this season. New Orleans is + 100.

This line opened with New Orleans listed as a 7.5-point home favorite. The public is all over the Saints, expecting a bounce-back cover against a struggling Vikings squad that just lost to the Bears at home. However, despite this lopsided support we’ve seen the line fall from Saints -7.5 to -7. This signals some sharp reverse line movement on the Vikings, with respected pro bettors grabbing the points, not laying them. Minnesota has heightened contrarian value as they are only receiving about one-third of bets in what will be an incredibly heavily bet game. The Vikings also have value as a road dog off a loss (56% ATS this season) and a dog with a line move in their favor (60% ATS). Despite both teams being profitable to the over this season (Vikings 9-4-1 and Saints 9-5), we’ve seen this total fall from 52 to 51. This signals some sharp money backing the under.

NFL Betting News & Power Rankings 2020 WEEK 16!

 

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Team News  rankings power betting  Playoff Field Taking Shape
After Week 15 we are getting a clear idea about the contenders and the pretenders in the NFL. Let’s take a look at the power rankings for the top five teams in each conference still in postseason contention. All playoff-eligible teams will have accompanying Super Bowl odds in parentheses and we will also see what the NFL point spreads are on their upcoming games this week.
AFC Power Rankings
Kansas City Chiefs (13-1, +175) – Patrick Mahomes is the NFL’s new king and why wouldn’t his team be listed at the top of the AFC heap? There is little doubt the defending Super Bowl champs will be getting a first-round bye to lick their wounds and get ready to feast on whichever team draws the short straw and advances to meet them in the second round. Kansas City is currently listed as 10-point favorites over the Falcons this week.
Buffalo Bills (11-3, +1200) – Josh Allen is a rising star and anyone who took shots at the 6’5” Wyoming product is sitting silently now. The Bills defense has not been quite as good as many suspected heading into this season but the addition of Stefon Diggs to the offense has more than compensated for that slight regression. The Bills Mafia has finally found the enforcers they need to defend their turf.
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2, +1200) – The Steelers will most likely be 12-2 by the time this gets published, as a Monday night date with the Bengals looms. Pittsburgh was the last undefeated team in the league but was unceremoniously dumped by Washington and followed that up with another setback to the emerging Buffalo Bills. The Steelers are being listed as 2 ½ point favorites over the Colts this week.
Indianapolis Colts (10-4, +3300) – Phillip Rivers left his longtime home in San Diego for the midwestern feel of Indianapolis and it’s worked out just fine for both parties. The Colts needed a bona fide quarterback and they got one with the 39-year-old Pro Bowler. Currently in a death struggle with Tennessee for AFC South supremacy, the Colts are 2 ½ point underdogs to the Steelers this week in what should be a marquee matchup.
Tennessee Titans (10-4, +2800) – With all due respect to the upstart Cleveland Browns, we have to give a slight edge to the Titans, a team that went all the way to the AFC Championship game last year before they bowed to the Chiefs. Ryan Tannehill’s career has made a Lazarus-like comeback and the Titans are a tough out for any opponent. Tennessee is being listed as 3 ½ point road underdogs to the Packers this week.
NFC Power Rankings
Green Bay Packers (11-3, +600) – The Packers are the favorites to dethrone the Chiefs this season as Super Bowl champs but that will be a tall task to be sure. Aaron Rodgers has been playing like a man possessed, and that might have something to do with the Packers drafting quarterback Jordan Love in the first-round as the heir-apparent to the throne. Needless to say, Rodgers isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon but the similarities between this situation and his own when waiting for Brett Favre to cede the reins is striking. The Packers are 3 ½ point home favorites over the Titans in Week 16.
New Orleans Saints (10-4, +800) – Drew Brees is another aging veteran leading his team to the promised land but he had been doing so on the sidelines after suffering several broken ribs and a collapsed lung against the 49ers in Week 10. He recently returned to action in a 32-29 loss to Kansas City which might have been a Super Bowl preview. The Saints are currently installed as seven-point favorites over the Vikings in a special Friday night matchup.
Seattle Seahawks (10-4, +1200) – Ironically, the team known for bone-jarring defenses in the past has one of the most porous this season. Yet, the offense led by Russell Wilson is so prolific that they have been able to overcome their defensive shortcomings. The Seahawks have won four of their last five but will be tested this weekend when they face the LA Rams as two-point home favorites.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-4, +1200) – What a difference a quarterback makes, right? The Bucs have been on the outside looking in when the playoffs start for over a decade but now that Tom Terrific is pulling the levers in the Sunshine State, a postseason spot is there’s for the taking. The Bucs rallied from 17 points down to claim a 31-27 decision over the Falcons last week and are being dealt as 8 ½ point road dogs against the Lions this week.
Arizona Cardinals (8-6, +6000) – While many would put the Rams somewhere in the top five, it’s simply too difficult to do so after they lost to the worst team in football this past week. If you didn’t know, Los Angeles dropped a 23-20 decision to the Jets which makes the Cardinals the better team. That might be black and white logic at work but Kyler Murray is the real deal and will make noise in the postseason, just you wait. Arizona has been installed as 3 ½ point favorites over the 49ers on Saturday.
