Randy Moss trade could upset NFL Online Wager apple cart

The bottom line is that that the league is as competitive and unpredictable right now as perhaps it’s ever been at any time in the history of professional football.

And so the fact that the New England Patriots now have a trade in place with the Minnesota Vikings for future hall of fame WR Randy Moss (as reported by ESPN and Yahoo.com) shouldn’t be surprising. But some how, it is.

Anyone that has been involved in the NFL online wagering scene this year knows that there has been a situation brewing in Foxboro for some time. Moss came out earlier this year in the press about his unhappiness in New England and his desire for a long term contract extension that certainly isn’t going to happen with the Pats now that they just gave Tom Brady bazillion dollars.

And so that brings us to this point in time and the trade that could re-write the NFL online wager situation in several divisions.

For the Pats, they would be losing their big play threat on offense and the ability to spread the spread the field. Even though Moss was held to 0 catches in the team’s Monday night win over the Dolphins and has just 139 yards through 4 games doesn’t mean that he’s not valuable to the Pats’ offense. His 3 TDs leads the New England receiving corps and just by being on the field he enables receivers like rookie Aaron Hernandez (team best 240 yards receiving) to get open in the middle against a third or fourth CB of an opponent.

In fact, Moss may be the single most important part of that offense after Brady. Without him the Pats passing game will suffer greatly and the non-existent running game will be even more non-existent.

However, if this trade goes through to Minnesota, the Vikings may finally have the piece they’ve been missing to compete in the NFC North online wager action against the likes of Green Bay and Chicago.
