Marshawn Lynch Suspension Upheld – Football Betting

Football betting odds on the Buffalo Bills at the sportsbook will be more popular this season since Terrell Owens is on the team.

Some people might want to wait a few weeks to bet the Bills in regular season football betting since starting running back Marshawn Lynch will be out.   Lynch had appealed his three-game suspension but online football betting tells us that the appeal was denied by the NFL on Monday.

Football betting tells us that Lynch will miss the first three games of the 2009 regular season.  Lynch will be part of preseason practices and preseason games but will miss the first part of the football betting season.

"We are disappointed, obviously," Bills coach Dick Jauron said to ESPN, "We'll lose a real good football player for three games. But hopefully, Marshawn has learned a good deal from it."

Sports betting shows that Lynch was suspended because of a misdemeanor gun charge that he pleaded guilty to that occurred in February.  Police found a 9mm semiautomatic handgun in a backpack in his trunk.  Online football betting tells us that since Lynch pleaded guilty he was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and three years probation.

Lynch has rushed for 2,151 yards and 15 touchdowns in his two year career as football betting numbers indicate.  The Bills will have to find a way to replace his production during the first three games of the online football betting season but they have two good players to rely upon.  Buffalo will turn to Fred Jackson and Dominic Rhodes to fill in for Lynch early in the football betting season.  Jackson did well last year as football betting statistics indicate.  Jackson had more than 100 yards twice last season as football betting indicates.  He had 136 yards in last year’s finale against New England and for the football betting season he had 571 yards.

Online football betting information tells us that Rhodes had been with the Indianapolis Colts for the past eight seasons.  Last year he had 538 yards rushing and overall he scored nine touchdowns to impact online football betting results.  Football betting tells us that Jackson will be the regular season starter with Rhodes getting playing time as well. "Just the way the reps are going, I would say that I'm the guy right now, but he's definitely going to get his opportunities, too," said Jackson.
