For anyone looking to bet on the NFL upcoming season, you might be in luck, as will the bookmakers.  The NFL lockout appears to be in its final stages now that the Hall of Fame game is said to be on track.

"We're making all plans to have the game on time. We've heard from both parties -- the owners and the players -- and they've expressed their desire to have the game. So, that's our plan," Hall President Steve Perry told ESPN.

"Ticket sales are lagging behind where they were compared to this time last year," Perry acknowledged. "That's understandable. There is some uncertainty out there. But we're planning to have the game. Nobody has told us otherwise. In fact, both sides have told us they want to play the game."

Around half the tickets have been sold for the August 7 game taking place between the Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams.

This is typically one of the first heavily bet on NFL games of the year.

Talks hit a snag last week but players and owners appeared to be more positive following a Friday meeting.

There’s a well known adage for stock market investors that it is wise to ‘buy on bad news’.  The thinking is that the unwashed masses will panic and sell an otherwise sound security any time there’s a perceived setback.  The sharp investor understands what is going on and uses the opportunity to buy an undervalued stock.  This in microcosm is why successful stock traders keep making profits while nervous ‘regular Joe’ investors get killed.
