Fans of opposing National Football League teams can’t be blamed if they  circle the date for games against the Green Bay Packers on their calendars. Same for casual football fans looking for decent games on Sunday afternoons. The Packers are always going to be strong and in the thick of the Super Bowl chase.

University of Louisville fans will have one more special reason to follow the Packers’ fortunes this season. Namely Jaire Alexander, competing for a starting position at cornerback in the rookie year of his professional career.  The Packers traded selections with the Seattle Seahawks to make  Alexander 18th overall pick, the second cornerback  off the board.

Jaire Alexander

When he was well, Alexander was one of the elite-level cornerbacks of this class. Injured in Louisville’s opening game last season, missing six games with a knee injury. UofL was a different team when he returned, winning four of its last five regular season games, including a second straight victory over Florida State.

The Packers haven’t had the best history with first-round cornerbacks, but there’s an aura around Alexander and an influx of optimism. It’s still early but reports from the Packer camp indicate that Alexander is seriously quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ passing accuracy in pre-season workouts.

Rodgers, who broke his collarbone in week six and played in only seven games last season, appears to have fully recovered. Pretty potent combination with Rodgers quarterbacking the offense and Alexander running free in the defensive backfield. According to Betway, the Packers are 13/2 favorites to win the NFC, and will give defending Super Bowl champs Philadelphia Eagles all they can handle.

Expect Jaire Alexander to play a major role in Green Bay’s return to prominence.

Students of the University of Louisville, have you played an online casino game?

 The pastime is now something of a requirement if one is looking for a rather simplistic way of making money

 Have you ever looked at your own bank account or wallet and wondered where your money goes? As a student, it probably feels like part of the territory in having minimal funds to do whatever you want, especially when friends are constantly asking you to participate in activities that requires money. Fret not, there are various ways for you to earn money. There is of course the option of getting a ‘traditional job’ that has you working a set amount of hours at a set wage, but in doing so you lose out on more of your social time. Have you maybe considered the quickest way of earning big money at little to no cost at all? Have you thought about playing online casino games?

 We know that it can be a difficult topic to wrap your head around, you hear so many bad things about online gaming that you forget about the good that this industry can bring. Sites such as 666 Casino, 666casino.com, have reported massive spikes in players aged 20-24 which is partly due to the fact that these slots are so generous in the amount of money they relay back to the individual playing these games. We have spoken to a variety of students across the states about online casino games, and they all tell us the same thing. The consensus seems to be very positive in that it is a sure-fire way of earning some money alongside your studies. 

 These sites are packed full of different online casino games for you to choose from. You might find that you are better at online poker than blackjack, if that’s the case why not search for blackjack and see what comes of it. Normally you would have to travel to a casino to play these types of games, but most of the graphics in these games are so good that it can be difficult to tell the difference between reality and digital. We understand that students are normally stricken with time constraints which only gives you more reason to play these casino games as they can be played at anytime (and anywhere due to some mobile games).

 If you are someone who’s never played an online casino game before — or even a casino game before — don’t worry. Most of these casino games feature rules and how to play sections that will walk you through the basics. You’ll be an expert in no time due to the various different features that encourages multiple rounds depending on how much you want to get out of these games. You might find that this is just a rather fun hobby, or it could turn into a real money-maker if you are really that dedicated. So the next time you think about earning some money, why not consider online casino gaming and defy your own financial expectations.
