The NFL season is almost here. We get an appetizer Wednesday night before the main course on Sunday. Earlier today, Bovada.lv sent out a slew of player prop bets, which can be found here. Below are some of the more intriguing bets offered.

* Will an NFL coach, player or owner be fined by the NFL for comments made regarding replacement officials about Week One games?
Yes: +140
No: -180

* Will an NFL coach, player or owner be fined by the NFL for comments made regarding replacement officials about Week One games?
Yes: +140
No: -180

* Eli Manning vs. Peyton Manning: Who will throw for more yards in the 2012 regular season?
Eli Manning: -150
Peyton Manning: -120

* Peyton Manning: Will he start all 16 games of the 2012 regular season?
Yes: -300
No: +200

* Michael Vick - Total games started in the 2012 regular season
Over/Under: 14

* Tim Tebow - Total starts in the 2012 regular season?
Over/Under: 1 1/2

* Devin Hester - Total special team touchdowns in the 2012 regular season
Over: 1 1/2 (+160)
Under: 1 1/2 (-200)

The under on Michael Vick seems like the lock here. Also, take a chance on under 16 starts for Peyton Manning. Even if he stays healthy, there's a possibility of Manning sitting out Week 17 if the Broncos have a playoff spot locked up, making +200 nice value.
