NFL Game Capsules - Preseason Week 3
Luck played four series, leading the Colts to scores on each of his last three. He ended 9-of-13 for 107 yards, with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton each hauling in a touchdown in the Colts' first win of the preseason. Giants starting wide receiver Hakeem Nicks made his preseason debut following an injury plagued 2012 season. He made a pair of 20-yard catches, both of which leading to field goals from Josh Brown, who accounted for all of New York's points in going a perfect 4-for-4 on kicks for the night. Eli Manning played into the second quarter and ended 8-of-17 for 91 yards with an interception on the night. New York also saw some key offensive starters leave with injuries in the first quarter, with wide receiver Victor Cruz bruising his heel and center David Baas straining his left knee. Neither player returned after exiting.

NEVADA REGULATOR RELEASES SUPER BOWL BETTING STATS
Sunday's monumental Super Bowl clash between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers generated wagering of almost $94 million, giving Nevada bookies a hold of 7.3 percent, according to official numbers from the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Board chairman A.G. Burnett said late Monday: "Unaudited figures show a sports book win of $7,206,460 was recorded on wagers totalling $98,936,798. This resulted in a hold percentage of 7.3 percent."
Comparative numbers from 2012 show wagering at $93,899,840, giving bookies a win of $ 5,064,470 or 5.4 percent when the N.Y. Giants beat New England 21 to 17.
This year the 49ers started out as 5-point favourites, but gamblers bet the line down to 3 points, and the 65 points scored in New Orleans easily exceeded the over/under of 49. Late money poured in for the over wager and for the 49ers, who have built a reputation as a second-half team, but they were pipped at the post by the Ravens in a 34 vs. 31 win.
Nevada sports books have lost only twice on the Super Bowl in the past 20 years, most recently in 2008, when New York beat the Patriots, costing bookies a record $2.6 million.
Seymour fined for Right-Hook to Roethlisberger
In the 2009 season, the Oakland Raiders only won five games, meaning they went 5-11 last season. This year, things appear to be turning around, even just a little, as the Raiders are 5-6, a marked improvement over last year. In fact, the Raiders were riding a three game winning streak. In order for that streak to have had any chance of staying alive, they shouldnít have played the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Big Ben and the gang put up 35 points against the Raiders, and only spotted them three points for a blowout of mega proportions in Pittsburgh.
Well, these things happen, and I was more than excited to hear that the Raiders were playing the Steelers, because I knew this sort of thing would happen. Blowouts happen, especially to teams run by Al Davis and Tom Cable and playing the Steelers. However, it wasnít the final score that caused the Raiders to slip back into their pathetic ways. NFL betting is also jumping ship on the Raiders, they are so up and down that betting on them is a risky proposition.
Defensive lineman Richard Seymour, clearly and easily out of frustration, smacked Steelersí quarterback Ben Roethlisberger following a 22 yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger, thus increasing the Steelersí lead to 21-3 in the second quarter. Hey, I know why Seymour hauled off and laid one on Big Ben: He was frustrated, pure and simple. Frustrated because his team was losing by 18 points and it wasnít even halftime, frustrated because heís in a Raiders uniform, frustrated that heís forced to live in that God-awful city, and frustrated because heís in a Raiders uniform. Still, despite all the frustration, emotions have to be kept in check. This isnít high school, or prison, so grow up. Itís understood that some of the offensive lineman for the Steelers were running their mouths, and thatís enraging, but thatís still no reason to hit someone.
Seymour hit Roethlisberger while Seymour was arguing with the offensive lineman of the Steelers. Big Ben came over to separate the group, so that his team wouldnít receive a penalty, and then boom! Big Ben goes down like a sack of laundry. Seymour didnít even hit the guy he was arguing with, and that just shows the immense lack of discipline that runs amuck within the Raiders organization. The NFL released Seymourís punishment for the hit on Monday: A $25,000 fine, but no suspension, which is good news for the Raiders I guess, but bad news for the next quarterback.
