You can rely on the Internet to provide you with many things consistently, from all varieties of porn to various angry cats. But the most consistently pushed piece of sometimes shameful consumption are the random betting props, especially as they relate to the NFL.

Hey, do you think Aaron Rodgers will throw a touchdown pass in the second quarter of the Packers’ Week 2 game at the 3:14 mark? There’s a prop for that somewhere.

So of course, with Tim Tebow now officially on a practice field in New England, there are avenues to wager on his crappiness, and overall relevance during the 2013 NFL season. Here’s BoDog‘s offering:

Tim Tebow – Will he make the Patriots 53 man Week 1 roster?     

Yes                   -400      (1/4)

No                    +250     (5/2)

Tim Tebow – Will he start a game as a QB for the Patriots in the 2013 Regular Season?       

Yes                  +600     (6/1)

No                    -1200    (1/12)

* Must make Patriots 53 man Week 1 roster for action.

Tim Tebow – Will he throw a TD Pass in the 2013 Regular Season?           

Yes                  +200    (2/1)

No                    -300     (1/3)

* Must make Patriots 53 man Week 1 roster for action.

Tim Tebow – Total Rushing & Receiving TD’s in the 2013 Regular Season

Over/Under                   1.5

* Must make Patriots 53 man Week 1 roster for action.

Tim Tebow – Will he attempt a Pass in the 2013 Regular Season? 

Yes                   -300    (1/3)

No                    +200    (2/1)

* Must make Patriots 53 man Week 1 roster for action.

Pro tip: don’t put even three cents on any of those. But some of you inevitably will, so here are a few stray thoughts:

Projected win totals from Vegas and the various gambling websites which readily provide you with the opportunity to get divorced from the comfort of your living room are largely meaningless for those who don’t partake in such shenanigans.

At best, they’re a loose gauge of the public’s current perception of each team and its chances to win football contests this fall. Bookies aim to make a prospective bettor’s decision difficult, and therefore after doing the required research, they set the over/unders right around where the common man believes each team’s win total will finish. Or at least that’s partly true, as more often they’re playing with your mind and influencing wagers in one direction or another.

I realize it’s some pretty heavy stuff to consider that bookies may not be entirely trustworthy people, so please pause for a moment before taking in the win totals below from Bovada which were released this afternoon.

Money making, man. Sometimes a bro just has to hustle. And oftentimes around these parts, stacking bills means betting on football.

See, whether it’s through fake fantasy teams or real dollars on real people, we don’t mess around.

So after the draft and every pick which is instantly a potential boom or bust, new Super Bowl odds have been released, and thus also an updated way to make money.

Say, do you remember that time when the over/under on Geno Smith’s draft slot was set at 8.5? We do, and yes, so do you, the chronic betting fiend who’s only now getting the tears to stop.

Since betting on the NFL draft is something people really do, there was undoubtedly much despair after Smith’s fall that hasn’t stopped yet. Online sports betting sites which allow you to donate your money digitally had Smith commonly projected for about that No. 8 spot which was originally owned by the Bills.

How can you lose more money again tonight during a draft that’s made “prediction” a dirty and scummy word? Why, Bodog.ca has more options, of course.

Since the Internet is obligated to provide you with the opportunity to bet on any event that’s even loosely related to the NFL, this afternoon your friendly online draft wagering guides surfaced to feed your paycheck losing needs.

Later on this week we’ll give you a list of much more fun things to bet on/drink to, because we always aim to provide a public service. How many times will Mike Mayock say “dancing bear”? There’s a prop for that.

For now, here’s the real stuff from Bodog.ca, with some commentary/ranting/bad predictions…

Obligatory note: what you see below is a sweet money making opportunity for those of you who enjoy such things. Vegas odds on championship chances are a gauge of the public opinion of each team, but as a predictor of the results we’ll see in the 2013 season or the Super Bowl matchup we’ll watch next February, futures in mid March immediately following the first week of free agency — before the draft, and long before a meaningful game or even a meaningful practice — are little more than arbitrary fun.

Odds are a talking point, and since we’re into talking about things around here and we like fun, I took a little look see at how the championship odds for each team are stacking up nearly a week into the spending, and mostly overspending. The World Wide Web provides so many places to lose money on sports if that’s your desire, but here we’re sticking with Bodog just for the sake of continuity. Elsewhere you’ll surely find different projections, and even better bargains and ways to pay for your new dryer. Please recall that a day after the Super Bowl we did a similar post using Bodog’s odds, with the Broncos leading. So how much has this list changed since then?

Today is all of your birthdays in one day, and right now every NFL writer is as giddy as old age home residents settling in for a Matlock marathon, or even better, a 28-year-old man(?) watching multiple episodes of the original G.I. Joe series (true story: this happened in the early morning hours Saturday, and I feel no shame). Free agency day, guys. The best.

But first before we go about the business of spoon feeding you every imaginable rumor and doing one final preview of the madness that will begin this afternoon at 4 p.m. ET, let’s use the magic of gambling to take one more look back on yesterday’s insanity.
