How do you What do you do there with 24 hours? Is that a e? I mean, is that like, a water bottle under the table sort of day or what? It's tough during the 17 you know, there was a couple of bathroom breaks, but really I loaded up my side with energy drinks and away we go and should produce it.
So yeah, double duty waken.
Either get on or sponsor.
Just talk about it.
We're more than happy to do that.
Well, you know, we're always down for a good cause.
All right, So, uh, we'll get to you ***.
But here, Paul, How did how did the Week six the NFL season go for you? Bittersweet.
Once again, it seems to be a theme with me the last couple weeks where I picked seven games and it all came down to one game, which was Anthony's Cowboys on Monday night, who just hit the bed.
I'm gonna George, I'm gonna George **** emoji this one.
Um, if they had won, I would have had a absolutely massive week.
Instead, thankfully, I hedged with the Cardinals, and instead of quintupling this week's bankroll, we just simply doubled up.
So I can't complain, but it waas this close to being just an utterly massive week.
What's up with Zeke? Anthony? I mean, two fumbles and then, honestly, the Cardinals just did it right and scored Two touchdowns in the game was over.
This wasn't the first game that Ezekiel Elliott put the ball on the ground.
I think it was against Atlanta, where he had a couple of lost fumbles and Dallas was able to recover and win that game.
But I feel like as a Cowboys fan, and even as a general NFL fan, the Cowboys kind of bamboozle.
Does they sell us on? Okay, you know that's gonna go out.
We're gonna feature Zeke and Andy Dalton is good enough.
Best backup in the league.
There were a bad team with that Prescott.
Let's face the fact they're gonna get bad team without that Prescott.
If it wasn't for them playing in the n f C East, they'd be out of it already.
Yeah, I like I I think what got me in that game was that I was getting the Cowboys with plus odds.
I was like, Oh, you know, Andy Dalton.
Not much of a downgrade from Dak.
And I honestly didn't think that the Cardinals were very good and they, you know, showed up, scored a lot of points.
Kyler Murray look great.
And, you know, now we move on and we'll see what We'll see how we do this week.
So at one point I had a I had this job where I was essentially charting plays for for a company online.
And they have you do this sample game so that you could get ready for it while lo and behold Kyler Murray at, uh at the old Texas Stadium in one of his old high school games there.
So I always remember that.
Like, Oh, man, the kids from Texas.
I even wrote it in my prop that article for the Monday night game.
Like, you know, he's from from there, he's never lost.
And then he was a cowboy stadiums, either in his life.
So, you know hey, End did end up getting a touchdown there, but yeah.
I mean, look, my my whole thought process on the Dallas game was I think Andy Dalton is judge Fine toe run the Cowboys.
And, you know, it really wasn't his fault in the beginning, Of course.
The first drive of the second half.
Uh, who was it? Lamb that gets absolutely just, you know, assaulted on that pass around.
And then they get the interception.
I mean, that changes the course of the game, too.
So it really was just, ah, situation of things happening in Dallas.
Like, you know, this first thing this first bad thing happens.
Then comes the next one, and then it all just started rolling downhill.
So again, you know, we're gonna talk about this Dallas Washington game here in a little bit.
But, you know, I don't think Dallas is as bad as they showed on Monday night.
Just just awful sequence of events that we all saw at the end there.
The biggest issue with Dallas is the offensive line.
There were already down a few starters, and then, on Monday night, the best guard in the league.
Zack Martin. He went out with a concussion.
So. You're down three or four starters now.
You know Andy Dalton? He's not his mobile.
His death Prescott.
It's just It's all on.
Zeke and Zeke Absolutely put the ball on the ground and blew the game.
At least he owned it.
And you mentioned that exact Martin to.
I mean, they already had a couple, you know, injuries on the offensive line.
And this already was a declining talent, if you will sort of team.
So, yeah, I mean, again for Dallas.
They sell us on this every single season.
I always call them there.
The kid that comes home with straight C pluses on the report card looking for ice cream.
Uh, you know, this This is who they are.
And this is who we know them is.
So again, we are going to get into that game for you.
Dallas fans and haters alike.
You know they're gonna be playing the Washington Redskins football team, but, uh, you know, well, we will get that in a little bit.
First, let's go to the Thursday night Football game.
So I did write ups, um, props for this one, which we could get into their not posted online yet.
But I'll just have you know, that they involve Daniel Jones, Boston Scott and, jeez, who's my Oh and, uh, Dallas, Qatar that we will have in that one where, where you find them, you could find them, of course, on us dash odds dot com uh, the greatest spot for all the football needs that that you need going into the week.
But when we look at this game, we currently see the Philadelphia Eagles as 4.
5 point favorite, uh, money line.
They will be minus 2 25 Giants plus 1 95 in this game.
We got a total sitting at 44 a half.
Now I'm looking at this game.
I kind of feel like this is a game that the Eagles should win.
But what say you guys in this one? Well, number one, the line has moved, which worries me a little, because I like the Eagles here, where the fact that everyone likes the Eagles is thus bad for me.
If I'm going to bet it, um, I initially saw them at minus 1 96 which was completely doable to bet the money line because it's a bad NFC East.
It's gonna be a low scoring game.
It's a Thursday night where if the Eagles win, I think they win by about three.
Which puts me at okay.
Do I take the Giants who are terrible coming off their first win? Or do I take the Eagles that I actually think of the better team I might actually risk 2 to 1 odds, take the Eagles money line and just, you know, cross my fingers.
A lot of that comes from the fact that the Eagles just have the Giants number.
They've won 11 of the last 12 games, uh, head to head where you look at that, and I'm like, All right, I feel a little better about the minus 2 25.
But again, I don't feel great.
What about you, Anthony? Yeah, In theory, the Eagles should win.
They should really dominate this football game.
Of course, in Wen's, he's doing it again with a skeleton crew.
Now you don't have either one of your starting tight end.
Dallas Carter was still on IR.
Zach Ertz gonna miss some time.
They're probably gonna roll with Hakim Butler, a second year wide receiver.
They signed them, converted him to a tight end.
And Richard Rogers, who made some plays years ago with Green Bay Packers.
You know Travis Fulgham playing outstanding football right now, Greg Ward and then Boston Scott.
This is all about course and whence if he can get going against the Giants defense.
That isn't as bad asses advertised.
You know, Bradbury is shutting down almost every wide receiver, one he's faced this year.
But I do like the Eagles to win this game.
I cannot see the Giants pulling it out the way that they're playing offensively.
Daniel Jones is atrocious.
He's taken a step back from his rookie here.
Um, if the Giants have a shot, I think it's all about Devonta Freeman, and that's sad to say.
Hey, the update on Dallas Goddard, I saw one place that he would be returning this week.
Is that that incorrect? I mean, I'm I'm looking at getting on him.
Okay? Our whatever prop it you took, I'll take the under. Yeah, right.
You can't lose if the guy doesn't play.
And again to I'm looking at the proper.
I thought the prop numbers on draftkings.
I thought it was somewhere on there, too.
But again, obviously, you know, with the NFL and injuries this year, it's not his concrete as it's usually been.
But, you know, I thought I saw him coming back.
Obviously, if you know if he's if he's in there, I like him.
There's gonna be a tough matchup, I think for the Giants.
Darius Slay in gonna It's gonna be the Battle of the Slaves, right with various latent on him this week.
And that's really been the only guy for the Giants.
That's kind of done anything from a I guess, a production standpoint, you know, slate in these connected on nine of 14 deep balls or D targets this season.
No other Giant has more than two, right, And this is a game that you definitely want to try to attack the Eagles through the air.
So, um, one of one of the profits that wrote for this game.
I think you know Daniel Jones.
I like over 26 a half rushing yards.
The reason I like that again, probably gonna have more pass plays than run plays against the Eagles.
And this is just sort of an opportunity where, you know, we've seen him, like, last season.
I think the Eagles allowed over 25 rushing yards to six different quarterbacks.
Uh, Jones himself has nine games with over 25 rushing yards.
So what do you guys think about that for Jones? Yeah.
I mean, last week.
What do you do? I think seven for 74 on, uh, on.
And And it was the only way that the Giants offense was functional.
So I My answer is yes.
Like, Period, You know, short week.
They're not gonna put any new tweaks into the offense.
Let the kid run.
He At least he's not gonna throw an interception if he's running with the ball.
Yeah, I would take me over on on his rushing yards. Prop.
As you said, he's had three games with over 40 yards rushing so far this year and the Eagles pass rush.
They can get after Daniel Jones and forced him out of the pocket, and he's gonna have to make plays with his legs.
But he also turns the ball over by fumbling.
It's not just interceptions with this kid.
Goodness, um, the other.
So I had the Ghadir prop in there.
Obviously, you know, we'll hold off on that and see what's going on with the injury since we got conflicting news there.
But I'm seeing on Twitter right now.
People don't you know.
There's some saying he's 2 to 3 weeks out Something morning this week.
Yeah, definitive On Dallas Thea publication, the publication that I read each week said that they expected in return again, but he could change that game.
You know, if if you look at the injury report for the Eagles, it's all of their starters, which is it's insane.
A D Shawn and Al Sean, or at least practicing where once even one of them gets back in the lineup.
You know, whence has been carrying this team with smoke and mirrors? You know, Greg Warden, full, full groom is that pronounce his last name like, Yeah, he's throwing to like us and and he and everyone talks how bad he is.
But it's like he's got nothing around him and he doesn't even get his starting running back with him this week.
Who knows? You know, if God it's back, he could have a massive game did indeed.
So final prophet that I had there was, Ah, Boston Scott over 71 a half, rushing and receiving yards that when you get on draftkings, I saw with the odds at minus 1 12.
So reasoning, there being, you know, two games against the Giants last season, this guy went absolutely bananas on them.
Uh, you know, well, over 100 total yards in each of those games.
Believe the last one to close out the regular season.
Uh, you know, Scott ended up having three rushing touchdowns in that one as well.
Big, big factor here.
Miles Sanders is out for this one for the Eagles.
So we saw the situation in week one where I believe Scott had 13 touches and Corey Clement had nine.
Uh, the reason that that was so big, though Scott got a little hurt in that game, and it kind of, you know, inflated Clement's uses there.
But given that and you know the Eagles, the only time we've really seen them kind of go with the Bell.
Cal role is with Sanders.
So what do you guys think about the 71 a half for the rushing and receiving? Totally.
You know, if we're basing it off of pure history with Boston's Got versus the Giants, I think you've seen Masti over Boston's.
God has shown us nothing this year, even in a featured week.
One role, and he got a little bit banged up.
He only compiled just under 60 yards total.
So I'm very worried about Boston Scott.
But again, he did have the success down the stretch last year in two games versus New York.
So I would take me over very, very optimistic Lee taking that over.
Paul, I don't know how long I'll let you guys fight this one out.
Like I'm with you, where he's shown me nothing but against the Giants, he shows me everything s Oh, this is kind of one of those where I'm just off.
I would find a different profit because he could completely he could hit it in the first half.
Or he could end up where he's come back.
He gets 44 yards on the game.
And so my answer is Boston Scott, I'm off.
Uh, I I love that I get the text from Paul.
You did a proper A are like, No, the thing that I was reading said he was.
So you know what? If he ends up being out, then I'll switch it up. I'll make a new one.
But if not, then I'll just have to blast the publication that was reading for expecting to have with them just just or just take the under that Z That's your way around it.
Well, you get voided if you do it.
Very selfishly, Paul, I forgot that you were doing some write ups on this game to, uh, well, selfishly, I'll call it, but I actually just didn't scroll down enough on the page.
But, Paul, you are going to have a game preview for this article.
On the game day dot com, you can go check.
There's no association.
It's just special that my Twitter handle is game day facts, and I write for the game day dot com.
Um, there's an article there, and I'm also doing a Twitter, uh, live takeover before the Giants Eagles game.
So definitely check us out at the game day NFL.
And you can talk to me and I'll tell you how much I hate being a Giants fan and that I root against them every week.
It's it's so much fun.
And I I've got Paul's phone number.
So if anybody wants to text him with that information, I'll just put it down to the side right there.
And, yeah, that sounds like a great idea.
All right, let's get into some of these Sunday games here for weeks. Seven.

Use the early pay out with the promo code sides and you get that bet All right, let's go into Week seven here one o'clock game.
We already alluded that we're gonna talk about it.
It's gonna be in Dallas Cowboys and the Washington football team in this matchup.
Paul told me Let this spread changed a little bit.
It even went off the board, I think for a sec.
But as I'm seeing right now on draftkings, it is the Washington football team favored by a point here.
Money lines are basically gonna be that same right in the 1 10 range.
And I we've got a total of 46 in this one.
Uh, and let's start it off with the resident cowboy adviser here.
What are we doing in this matchup? I'm actually leaning towards the Washington football team and win this game outright.
I have zero trust in the Dallas Cowboys right now.
Uh, you know, I've been saying that on my show for weeks, and my co host kind of rolled his eyes until the players confirmed it.
These coaches don't know what they're doing, and they are not preparing their team.
They're not mentally prepared.
We've never seen this under Jason Garrett.
That's one thing Garrett does do well is prepare the team for most situations.
The defensive coordinator Mike Nolan shouldn't be in the NFL.
He doesn't know how to adjust on the fly.
I don't even know if Mike McCarthy does at this point, which was his issue.
Per Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
A za Long as Kyle Allen doesn't give the football away, I think they get Antonio Gibson going, Uh, terror.
McClaren should really take over against Trevon Diggs, and it would not surprise me one bit.
If Washington wins outright, we'll fight.
So we are on the same winning and you're thinking here, Paul, You like Dallas? What do you got for us? I'm I like Dallas, and I'm gonna wait until I can get plus money on Dallas.
Just like last week, where I think that the Monday night game was a bit of a farce.
Where once Zeke fumbled the fumbled twice and Arizona went and scored two touchdowns.
That game kind of ended.
It was over where I don't think that's gonna happen again.
I think Andy Dalton, having another week to get acclimated with the playbook so on and so forth, get more comfortable with his great receiving corps I can't.
I can't fathom that the Redskins can beat the Cowboys, but they couldn't beat the New York Giants.
That's really what it comes down to, where, if I can get plus anything, I will absolutely love it and smash it.
And even as a lifelong giant fan, I will root for the Cowboys for the second straight week.
It was very nice to see, uh, as a as a better of the plus two for Washington last week.
It was great to see Rivera go for that, too, at the end of the game.
But same time when you're from a reality perspective, you know, you're probably what five wins probably wins this division.
And, you know, you were kind of banking on the fact that Daniel Jones wouldn't score a touchdown in overtime like, Come on and you look at the touchdown that they got in that game.
It was on defense for the Giants, so that was kind of a bonehead move.
Uh, you know, so whatever.
But I thought that they prayed a pretty good game against the Giants, especially on defense.
But, you know, you look at the cowboys in this matter.
I you know I always have this affinity for, uh, you know, betting a team that loses on Monday Night football or loses really bad in a primetime spot because number one, you got embarrassed in front of the entire league.
You know, everybody's watching number, so there's so much motivation that's not accounted into that number.
That air coming back.
Uh, you know, with all that said, I still like the Redskins or the football team in this game just because Come on, get, get the name right.
I don't want Thio there.
The Redskins like, why can't that be the nickname for them? Right, But the Washington football team, the W f t.
But I'm I'm with an on this when I'm like Washington.
I just think that a lot of those issues on the offensive line or way too much for them to overcome right now on again if Zeke doesn't have that same offensive line, I'm not gonna lie, man.
I thought a little slow there on Monday.
I don't know about you guys, but it looks like he's lost a step or so.
Ezekiel Elliott usually crushes the Washington football team in five out of the past six games.
He's gone for 97 yards with a touchdown, four of which going over 100 total yards.
And those games, this has to be in a Zico Elliott game.
And I like to use eco Elliott prop in this game as well.
Well, another thing, too, that, you know, rushing yards.
Problem? Yeah, The Dallas defense, you know, is that's also something that we gotta be worried about.
Should we not be too worried, though? Against Kyle Al? Come on, Kyle Islands. Not good.
The Redskins air the Redskins.
The football team is not good.
I mean, come on.
Look, are we, uh you're confident enough in this one where you want to try to make your way back in hashtag take a side.
No one? No, This is not one that I definitely we're not.
We're not gonna take a side on this, but done.
George needs your love.
I gotta pick and choose my spots because way too much this year, like, I think I like the Jets was a way that was the one to get a I let you pick last week.
You're like, I love the Cleveland Browns.
and I'm like, That's great.
You're my best bet in a week and then and then Saturday for my best Better the week when he picked that as our take aside, I was like, I don't even have todo look, a lot of trash matchups going for last week.
But but no, I mean, like, as of as of Saturday night, you know, kind of when I do the most research for D f s.
I mean, I started looking and I was like, Man, there's gonna be a tough one.
I'm definitely going wanted six this week, but but yeah, so that is, that is that s so you're saying no to take a side and we'll have to pick from one of the other games later on today.
That is correct. That is what I'm saying.
By the way, That means this one is definitely gonna hit.
You're going to see it on my US odds Wide receiver props this week.
But I really like Terry McLaren going up against the Cowboys defense, and this one saw Definitely have.
I'll definitely have a write up about that one.
Next game that we said we were gonna talk about? No, this is a game that aunt likes a lot.
Uh, there's gonna be the Green Bay Packers at the Houston Texans in this one.
Packers are installed is 3.
5 point favorites, Uh, minus 1 77 on the money line where you get Houston plus 1 55 on the money line.
Total 57 in this one. I saw it open.
I think it's like, 56 a half, and I already had thoughts about the over in this one.
But, uh, you like a particular side.
Who is it? I'm all in on the Green Bay Packers and the bounce back.
You know, going into last week, Green they looked like the best team in the NFC.
And then they got caught up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and and Tampa Bay.
I know that they dropped that game to Chicago.
But for whatever reason, Nick Foles has Tom Brady's number.
Like, if I'm Tom Brady, I'm not letting Giselle anywhere near Nick folk.
You better not, uh, got Nick Foles.
And then, uh, he lies baby sitting the kids because he has got his number two mhm two ugly quarterbacks.
We have luck who have good luck against Tom Brady.
But I think Aaron Rodgers and and Green Bay, they're gonna come out ****ed off.
They're gonna come out firing on all cylinders.
We have Davante Adams coming into a second game back from injury.
He's gonna have a big game.
But where you can really get over on the Houston Texans is running the football.
Aaron Jones is gonna be one of those games where he asked two or three touchdowns he's gonna dominate.
So I don't exactly love Aaron Rodgers to blow up, but there's gonna be a big time Aaron, uh, Erin Jones game on the over.
That 57 is a little bit.
I think it's a little bit too high because Green Bay's defense is a lot better than what we saw last week.
Yeah, Tampa Bay did have a pick six touchdown.
Another one of those interceptions put them right down at the doorstep, so I definitely agree with that.
But I don't know, like just watching the show on Watson last week.
This is This is where my love for the overcomes in because this guy, no matter who he's got on the field.
He's already on pace toe, have some of the best numbers of his career, and that's without DeAndre Hopkins.
Last week goes absolutely bananas on the Tennessee Titans, and that was nice for me, considering I had him all over the place and DF stacks with Will Fuller.
So that was a nice, nice little one to right there for the people.
But I just you know, I I look at this Shawn Watson, and this is a tough spot for the Texans, too, because, you know, Yeah, there what? 15 right now? And you look at their schedule.
And they've just been they've had so many tough games already, like opening the season with that With that start against the Chiefs, the Ravens, and then the Steelers, and then to have this game against Tennessee.
They had so many tough opponents.
But again, I that, you know, we were looking for that big shootout between Brady and Rodgers last week.
I think this is the week that we get it.
I'm kind of caught up in the middle here where when I first looked at it, I was like, Ooh, I love Houston plus three because they're playing at home and they looked like a good team with Romeo Coronel as their coach.
You know, the last two weeks, they've looked like the team that won the division for the last five years.
Where but eso I'm in that weird in between where? Like I like Packer's money line.
But I like Houston plus the points because, ah, home dog playing well, when when the Packers air Kind of like a fake, really good team is where I'm completely caught in the middle here as to do I take well.
The one thing I'll say I won't take is the Packers minus three.
So those were my two options with this game, and I'm kind of like I don't know what to dio.
So ultimately, I might just stay off it or the knowing May I'll throw, uh, the Texas money line on the back end of some random parlay trying to multiply it out.
Um, yeah, one of the obvious and mentioned it to just Green Bay Coming coming out ****ed off in this game.
I really like that.
The, uh yeah, we saw with Derrick Henry did to this Texans defense, you know, Obviously, I don't think anybody is there a cannery, but definitely Erin Jones concert Pop off, you know, and sort of, ah, diet way, if you will.
What do you let me ask you this saying, What do you think about Roger's? DeVante Erin Jones stacks for DFS.
I know you're not gonna be left with a **** thing, but any, uh, any interest in that? Yeah.
I don't mind that at all.
You know, on D efs actually stacked a J brown Tannehill on Derrick Henry left on draftkings.
And, you know, they all went off.
If this is gonna be usually what we see, if Erin Jones goes off, it's usually a quieter day for the passing attack and that they contain Erin Jones, the other to go off.
So I don't mind the stack, but I think it's gonna beam or one or the other with this Packers team.
By the way, I had the Texans plus four last week against the Titans.
Wouldn't absolutely gut wrenching finish to that one.
Where if they get the two point conversion, which I actually like that call a lot to keep dark, Henry, you know just kind of out of the importance of the game.
You know, if they would have gotten that, that would have been a nine point lead and would have been impossible for Tennessee.
Nevertheless, and I thought to Gostkowski could actually missed that extra point, you know, if Tennessee did have to tie it up.
So I thought was a pretty good calculated move ends up going horrifically wrong.
And, uh, the Tennessee Titans get that win by a touchdown in overtime, and my heart was broken.
You know this Texas team? Just one more note why I'm in on Erin Jones this week.
We Texans have have have allowed 4 100 yard rushers, and they in four out of six games played, and they allowed a Russia to go for a touchdown or 100 yards and five of six games.
The only team they shut down with Jacksonville one Week five.
But every other running back.
Really Dalvin Cook, James Connor, Clyde Edwards, Hilaire and then, obviously Derrick Henry.
They all went ballistic on them, and then the Ravens was that game where they didn't have 100 yard rusher.
But you know, Mark Ingram did scored and collectively because they used so Maney backs.
They went over about 150 yards between Ingram, Edwards and Dobbins.
Okay, fine. I'll find I'll take.
I'll take the Packers minus three.
E Have breaking news on the Thursday night game? OK, Dallas Ghadir Dallas Goddard is You know, we have nothing from Doug Peterson on God.
It's unlikely to happen.
So Miles Sanders, Earth's Malik Jackson and Jeffrey ruled out Lane Johnson and Jay.
Sean Jackson will play and absolutely nothing on Dallas Carver.
Alright, we're gonna change the way d Shawn is back.
Oh, loving the ego is a little more now.
Giants favorite of the Giants fans there, of course.
Giant Giant killer to Sean Jackson.
All right, so I will be on subscribing to that publication, and that will be that.
Making me look stupid. Way to go, guys.
All right, all right.
I mean, it can't happen, right? Because he could be activated in the morning and play, I guess I want to say I just I figured we would have heard something with that with that wave of information there.
But for the beat writers, Doug Peterson was talking about special team coaches getting head coaching jobs more than his players.
Okay, so I probably told you had a fancy background, Correct.
Yeah. All right.
So, yeah, you're so you're definitely in on the whole beat writer thing.
I feel like that's definitely one of the best ways to get your information for sure.
Let's talk about the next game.
Somehow, this is a one o'clock game, but, uh, you know, got to roll with it.
Do as you gotta.
We got the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Tennessee Titans in this one Steelers listed as two point favorites here, Uh, minus 1 24 on the money line.
Not too different from the plus one await You get on the Titan side of things, but we've got a 51.
I like the side of the total.
What do you guys like? Paul? Let's start with you on this one.
I'm gonna actually hand it off to Anthony because I know that, you know, there's a reason he wrote the betting preview for this game for the game day.
I'll let him give you all the fun information I'll smile and nod and then I'll pick a side.
This is gonna be one of the hardest games to pick because they're both undefeated teams.
They both look really good if you look at who they played, they played and beat similar teams.
But I think I'm going to edge out and I'm actually pulling up the article now.
I like the Titans toe win outright.
They have a +105 money line.
Um, yeah, the Steelers.
What they do best is they play defense.
They could stop the run with the Titans.
Do best, has run the football.
And, you know no Taylor Laurent, Laurent.
He tor his A c l last week.
That's gonna be an issue.
But Derrick Henry, he just goes off against you know anybody.
He's a matchup proof player and he gets better as the game goes on and they'll he'll. I think he'll eventually.
Where that pitch. Berg defense down.
Another weak spot on Pittsburgh if there is one, is if you can get Derrick Henry going, you can beat this dealer secondary over the top.
We saw what variously and we saw it with Travis Foege.
Um, quite a few times this year, and that's what Ryan Tannehill does best is go over the top to A J.
Brown off that play action fake.
And if there's Titans offense can get going.
I think they ultimately win this game.
Paul. We got here.
Eso yeah, I'm with you on the Titans here.
I've been huge on Pittsburgh, So the Pittsburgh was my best bet the last two weeks.
I gave it out to our listeners with the bet 3 65 early payout promo where what it is is if the team that you bet money line goes up by 17 points, you automatically get paid out if you use our promo code sides.
They The Steelers did it against the Eagles going up 18.
They went up by even more against the Browns last week.
But this week I'm not on just off the Steelers.
I love the Titans there at home, plus the points.
I'll probably take the money.
Lina's Well, I think that if I can get the Titans plus three, that's where I fall in love.
I'm gonna be the Steelers guy here.
Look, I think absolutely right.
Steelers do is they play defense and the way that Henry could beat them.
So the Steelers, they just send multiple guys at the at the line.
And, you know, if you beat that first wave of of, you know Blitzer's there, Henry could have an absolutely monstrous day.
It's just really get past that first wave and again, like, you know, a lot of teams.
They're not going to try to run the ball at the Steelers, You know, the way that you're absolutely right.
The way to beat them is over the top.
We've seen a lot of big plays happened on them.
Darius late in New York Giants, you know, he broke Big one over in the first game, and then it just kind of continued from there.
But, um to may I really love the Steelers receivers against the Titans secondary as we just saw last week and a couple times already this season.
This is there's a team you could certainly beat through the air, and I just think, you know, with the wealth of weapons, you know, if the Steelers get Johnson back this week, I think that helps even Mawr.
There's just some serious mismatches there through the air that they're gonna work in favor of the Steelers.
So again, with their usual ability to stop the run.
You know, God willing, there is no big place from Henry again.
I think that they get this done, but, uh, it will be interesting to see what Pittsburgh does it on defense, because maybe they don't go as heavy on the books this week.
Maybe they say, All right, we got to keep a couple guys back for Henry.
I don't know, man.
I just It's weird to me that I've loved Pittsburgh so much the last couple weeks, and now I'm, like, pretty sure that the Titans, we're gonna win this game.
So I'm like, I'm almost confused by myself at this point, But everything for me says Titans, money liner titans, plus the points.
Yeah, Ain't you got anything? You know, the Titans.
The convincing win for the Titans was obviously last week against Buffalo.
I think that was the Monday night football game, and I did not expect Oh, yeah, Tuesday night, I did not expect Tennessee to do what they did in the Buffalo Bills.
You know, they completely dominated that game in all phases.
And the Steelers, the best team that they played on beat was the Browns.
I would consider Buffalo in that next year of teams.
Eso just between like the common opponents.
I think the the Steelers, they haven't beaten anybody yet.
They really haven't.
You can only play games on your schedule.
But, you know, I think if you can get after Ben Roethlisberger on Do what? Cleveland couldn't dio.
I think you could He could struggle a little bit, Uh, something that Paul and I usually talk about.
You know, if you're not favorite at home by three, you know, what are you doing? You know, like already some red flags air arising, But to see the Steelers already favorite here, I forget.
Didn't open at two for the Steelers or Yeah, it's been it hasn't gotten to three.
All right, that's what I need.
I need to happen so that I could be Oh, here we go. Yeah.
So I get just in that alone, like already.
And you know, of course, you know, maybe the Steelers get a little benefit on the line because, you know, there.
Ah, favorite team by the national audience.
But, I mean, I don't know.
Just being in that spot.
Favorite by two on the road.
In this situation, with both teams undefeated, it's kind of speaking volumes to me already.
Good luck, my friend.
Do you wanna make that? You wanna make that take aside? Because I sure as hell feel confident about that.
Get your terrible towel out if you are.
I told you you until you Until you get close your down 6 to 1.
You can pick whatever you want is take a side, I'll take the other side, and I automatically win because you just keep losing.
All right, So you want todo take aside.
Let's go. Steelers take a side.
Go, Titans, Go, George E, get Titans plus two. Yes, yes.
Uh, this is also another opportunity where you can follow us on twitter.
Make sure you do so for the show at taking undersides, uh, taking underscore sides.
Uh, then for Paul, you could go Thio game day, fax myself 14 age walls and then for and you girl, I don't have you in my mind.
Sorry, but you can find him at the rial NFL guru there on Twitter.
All right, let's get to the four o'clock games.
You've got an interesting one here between the Kansas City Chiefs at the Denver Broncos.
Uh, Chargers, Chargers Chiefs favored by nine points in this one.
Uh, actually, 9.
5 now on the road minus 4.
20 varies optically on the money line there.
If you think they could pull the upset is plus 3 50.
Very odd to see a total under 50 with the Chiefs involved.
But that is where we are at 47.
So, gentlemen, what do we think about this one? Give me the Chiefs all day.
Anything less than 10? The Broncos that went over the Patriots was the Patriots were not the Patriots, Um, on on Sunday.
And I think that that's what it was.
Drew Lock came back.
Look, fine, but the Chiefs are still the best team in football.
They're still gonna win the Super Bowl.
I will take the Chiefs every week until I don't take them anymore, Even though two weeks ago they ruined my weekend by losing to the Raiders.
But this is not the Raiders.
They they can't run the way the Raiders could.
Keep the Chiefs off the field.
I think the Chiefs offense just runs away.
Give me something like 31 21.
That would be beautiful.
What's a, uh, I like this to be a little bit of a closer game than what people expect between these two teams.
The Broncos defense.
I think they're for Riel.
The issue is kind of like what Paul alluded to.
They don't have the firepower to keep up with the Kansas City Chiefs, because eventually the offense will get going.
I don't think you're gonna be able to run the ball on Denver.
Glad Edwards, Hilaire, Levian Bell.
They're gonna probably struggle in this game, which means it's all on Patrick Mahomes.
Any other quarterback.
I would give a better shot on at Denver to win this out, right? But it's not gonna happen with my homes.
Just too much firepower this off season.
We saw the Broncos kind of do what the Raiders did and put a team together that could score points to keep up with Kansas City. Courtland.
Some things you know, he's on injured reserve.
Drew lock doesn't look like the quarterback that they thought he was going to be.
Hey doesn't throw for a lot of scores, but the good thing is he doesn't turn the ball over unnecessarily, either.
But the wildcard here is Melvin Gordon.
Is Melvin Gordon going to play? He missed last week's game with an illness.
Non covert related.
They held him out.
The team did say that they will not discipline him.
I guess they're going to wait for his D Y case to be heard.
I believe in in November.
So that's really going to be the key.
Here is Melton, Gordon, Phillip, Lindsay.
Can they get established and and, you know, get going on the ground and keep the ball out of Patrick Mahomes hand.
But either way, it's gonna be a close game.
I actually like Denver to cover, but the Chiefs were gonna win outright Interesting.
Yeah, Melvin Gordon.
Hopefully they can get him out of the drunk tank, you know, getting back on the field.
You know, it happens.
It happens to the best of us, folks, you know, don't Don't let that bring you down.
You could bounce right back up, But I'm with you.
and I kind of I like the points with the Broncos.
I would love to get this a double digits.
I think that would make you feel a lot better.
It's been interesting.
Re out of the five career games, Patrick Mahomes has started against the Chiefs.
He won them all, but the first three were decided by fewer than seven points.
Uh, yeah, it's, you know, when we looked at this matchup the last two years, the Chiefs at the Broncos.
And I remember this because I bet the Broncos both times, But in 2000 and 18 the Broncos, they had a lot of back getting a ton of money behind him.
You know, I think that was kind of the coming out party for the real coming out party anyway, for Patrick Mahomes on Monday Night Football, you know, just kind of showing that this guy is, you know, no one to be messed with.
And then, you know, last year I don't know if you guys remember but my home.
Remember he injured his ankle in that game, and then Patrick R Matt Moore had to come in the game and they still did well against the Broncos and that one.
So you know, this is the opportunity has been there.
And, you know, the winemakers have been saying for, like, two years now.
Alright, my home is your time to go down in Denver is now and, you know, it just hasn't happened.
So I think what last week showed the Broncos at the Patriots is that Hey, you know what? The Broncos do have themselves a franchise quarterback because now all the guy got to do is move the ball into the end zone.
He moved the ball of the all over the field against the Patriots last week.
Now he's just got to get the **** thing in the end zone.
So hopefully playing the Chiefs make that a little easier for him.
I'm an absolute Drew lock.
Truther have been since day one, so I hope I really hope he gets this one done.
How about that game by Brandon McM**** Last week.
Oh, my God, that that he was the player of the game.
One of one of the case studies why kickers should never be allowed in fantasy football.
But you know, that's another time for another day.
Speaking of that, he was all over Twitter, saying, I hope you guys didn't drop me in fantasy.
He even posted a screenshot showing the 4.
5% of you that started me like, I hope you one.
I love it when players, you know, interact with with us common folk where there are some players.
I saw it a couple weeks ago.
Where? Where? I'm trying to remember who it was.
And he was just like, I don't care about your fantasy team.
I'm playing football.
We're just trying to have fun.
Have fun with us.
Do what McM**** did.
Um, last week there was something in, you know to to that broncos upset of any team last week.
No team saw a bigger differential of public bets and sharp money last week in the Broncos did.
So everybody, everybody kinda saw that one coming.
But I shouldn't say everyone saw that one coming, But there there was something to be told there of that wind happening there for the Broncos.
Is there any way the Patriots lose this week? Are they gonna lose back to back to back games like I can't get.
I can't wrap my mind around it.
I mean, who Who thought Belichick, Belichick led team would turn in a performance like that? You know it's happened.
It's a Jimmy Garoppolo revenge game.
Oh, I love those way.
Have a sound drop in my show for revenge Game from my coz Takes a shot.
Remember when there were four straight? Uh, Frank Gore revenge games earlier this year? Every team, But But the Jets have no shot, so it doesn't matter, I believe.
Ryan Fitzpatrick police into revenge game.
That is true, yes, and with him and Hoyer, too.
And where's John? Where's the Josh McCown now? Isn't he the the practice squad guy for the Eagles? He's been on literally every team.
He's He looks like Ivan Drago A little bit. Great call.
Do you see you've seen those pictures where, like his daughter's, where all of the jerseys he's been on because he's been on, like 10 teams.
That George in the background it is.
I was wondering if you I had nothing but barking dogs all **** day.
The one upstairs, the lady finally went back to work for the first time.
And, you know, since the covert era and the dog won't shut up.
And that's going on from 6 a.m.
And then I got my own dog right now at noon.
So this is just Yeah, I was got a baby golden retriever.
Yeah, I got a Pomeranian somewhere.
All right? I have.
No, I have no dogs.
I just have myself.
Paul can't walk himself half the time, let alone another dog.
Things is very true.
Uh, let's think into the the last King.
I guess we're gonna break down today with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Las Vegas Raiders. Bucks.
5 point favorites, actually, three point favorites now with the money line that minus 1 62 plus 1 43.
If you think the Raiders could get this upset done outright, we've got a total of 53 here.
So Brady and the boys, they got it done on Sunday.
It really looked like Brady's message got a got across very clear to the Buccaneers team.
I believe the first time in the Super Bowl era that a team has not committed a penalty, had a fumble or thrown an interception in the game.
Uh, they think they're one of three teams to do that, so good on them and good on me for rooting for them.
But this is gonna be kind of a tough situation here in Vegas.
Uh, we're gonna be taking on the Raiders team that is coming off a bye week.
And before that by week.
They just upset Paul's Kansas City Chiefs in that magic who he needed so desperately that way two weeks ago.
It's too weak, so that you had one team just absolutely dash your dreams.
But are you ready to forgive the Raiders in the spot or you think they could get it done against the Bucks there? I'm forgiving the Raiders because I'm taking them plus three.
All right, What do you got here? What are you seeing that I don't say? Raiders coming off a bye.
Raiders just beat the best team in football.
Tom Brady sort of remembers how many downs there are coming off a massive game against the Packers.
I think that the Bucks, well, potentially when this game out, right? But I just love the plus three where it's gonna be a close game.
The Raiders defense has proven to be really good, where it's gonna limit the number of possessions and the number of points.
Which is why I like the Raiders, plus the points where there is a shot, that they can also win this game out, right? Yeah, I'm going on Tampa Bay here.
Tampa Bay their most impressive one of the week of the season last week against Green Bay.
I feel like he plays more comfortably against a F C opponents and at a F C stadiums.
The last time the Raiders beat Tom Brady was way back in 2000 and two, which was probably the fumble or no Brady.
One that fumble game the year after the fumble.
I think, yeah, Oh my God, that that fumble game I was going to school in Boston at jillions, remember? Like before Dave and Buster's on Landsdowne Street by Fenway.
Oh, I'm a A child in college.
I've never seen a place erupt after that got overturned the way that I saw you never forget like they had the projection screens, and I'm I'm there as like Oh, this is cool. I'm a Giants fan.
I have never seen a group of of Boston nights or mass holes.
Whatever you wanna call them, go insane.
And that was the first year that, like, they hadn't won a Super Bowl yet up to that point, that was the year they did when they touch.
I mean, that was Charles Woodson, right? Yeah.
Did you see? Did you see Woodson did an interview with Brady recently, and he was like, Come on, bruh.
Because I guess Woodson's with what, NFL Network or ESPN now.
And yeah, And he interviewed him, and he was like, first question, you know, I gotta ask it.
You know, that was a little more, uh, sorry.
I totally just took a massive tangent there when we're talking about it, a game in 2020.
But that's like one of my early, like, amazing football memories.
You know, when you're at, like, even like I've never been toe like a no hitter or super bowl or anything like that, where being at that bar was like being at a stadium.
It was The place was shaking because they there were so many people going insane.
Well, that's just because they had a number of zoning violations at that place.
But it's probably right.
But go on with the bucks, you know, ****ing your Let me get my my my thought Process back.
Their secondary is playing surprisingly well this year.
Where you can beat them is on the ground.
In the past three games, Ronald Jones finally looks like the player that Tampa Bay protected him to be over 100 yards total and, I believe over 100 yards rushing in each of the past three games with Leonard for net out.
And that's of course, we're gonna open up the wide receivers and you have ground getting six targets and three.
It was past four games.
First, Godwin's finally healthy.
You have Mike Evans healthy.
Tampa Bay is getting healthy or on offense, but where they're extremely underrated, everybody talks about Pittsburgh and Baltimore defense to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Defense, to me is second.
Or, you know, maybe they're in a conversation.
As one of the best defense is in football.
There are averaging.
They're giving up a league low 4.
6 yards per play.
Their top 10 in points allowed, yards allowed, really top 10 across the board.
And they have some playmakers that can get after the quarterback.
I think Tampa Bay is gonna smother Derek Carr on the Oakland Raiders.
Uh, love to hear you say that.
I really dio no, But honestly, a lot of what you were saying is factual, you know, with with this defense right now and all the stats and everything that they've been doing Todd Bowles.
You know, the former Jets coach is the guy that has really just been absolutely, uh, you know, hammering this and you know, the bucks.
Let's not just say the Bucks defense just started doing well this year.
Second half of last season, I think Bulls finally got through these guys and, you know, a scheme and all that kind of stuff finally started clicking in with them.
But yeah, this is a team that as soon as you touch the ball, you are getting smacked right in the mouth.
And that's been, you know, from week one against the Saints, I noticed I was like, Whoa.
Like, Whoa, yes, we got something going on here, but very, very awesome to have that happen.
But one the one.
The thing that makes the Raiders go is running the football, and you're just not gonna be able to do that against the box league's best Russian defense right there.
And, you know, I remember last week I said, I'm not ready toe to go in on the bucks for this game against the Packers because I really don't know how they're going to do without the aid of a who's got a broken leg injury.
Guess what? They turned in their best performance of the year without him.
Now, they just made that trade with the Jets to get Steve McLendon where you could basically, you know, plug him right in there.
And I think, and it's unbelievable with this guy.
McClendon did, too.
He gets traded, or he finds out on Sunday that he's gonna be traded the next day, whatever.
So he drives from Miami up to Tampa, which is basically like a 34 hour drive, doesn't get any of his personal belongings back in New York, and now he might you know he's gonna be able to do that five day quarantine that you have to do after a trade and he might be available for Sunday if all goes well against the Raiders.
So that's that's just the ready.
That's the Brady effect showing.
Get your ass there because we're trying to win a title here this year.
Yeah, how happy is Todd Bowles like? Just think about that.
Oh, you get fired.
Is the Jets coach.
That's that stinks.
But now you're in beautiful Tampa with a team that can win the Super Bowl and the Jets are the worst team in football and didn't collect.
Didn't play for with balls when he was Yes, yeah, it's a huge connection and he's gonna fit right in and fit in perfectly with this Tampa Bay defense.
That already looks great.
Mhm, Yeah, I can't wait, man.
You get That's been the thing, man.
Adana con su just He was hysterical on Sunday.
Like every single shot that they went to a Rogers, Sue was like like Rogers was on the sideline and Sue was in his ear, you know, telling him how much he sucked that day.
But you know what? You know what happened in that game? Rogers did the whole, You know, thing.
After he scored the touchdown and then from that moment forward, it was it was a rap.
So maybe maybe you keep that celebration in your discount.
Double check their Rogers, huh? I told you I'm halfway a Bucks fan right now with my new cool hat.
And I love Jason Pierre Paul that he's doing it with this with one hand is still fascinating to me like that.
He still gets to the quarterback, and then you look at the Giants game and it's like 18 seconds before anyone gets near the opposing quarterback.
It's like, What are you doing? Giants? Let's go, man.
Yeah, I mean, bucks have to show.
I mean, the intensity that they had on Sunday was unbelievable.
Like Levante David, Devon White both.
I mean, they were coming out with the hit sticks all day.
It's just an energy that, like I just have not seen from this team since the Super Bowl years.
You know, when you had your born saps in your dark books and John Lynch is and guys like that, guys that were just I told you a couple of weeks ago, sometimes in these buckskin it looks like a game and killed the man with the ball where they just wanted, like, absolutely destroyed.
Who has ever touching that rock? Look, I'm I'm so happy for you.
You know, you're you're just on fire with you.
You got the lightning got the bucks, you know? What else do you need? Oh, you need the Tampa Bay Rays to to beat the Dodgers, could you? Tampa.
I don't root for the Rays, but obviously this season I have no choice.
But I'm a Phillies fan.
I moved all over the place as a kid.
So, uh, yeah, and the Phillies spring training is in Clearwater right next to Tampa where I live.
So you know, that was that was pretty cool toe have, but yeah, definitely.
You know, the Rays get a title.
I think I already think going to the world. Siri's.
I think the feeling in Tampa with Brady is like, all right, Like, I'm not gonna let these other teams get this done.
And I'm not going What? Are you kidding? May.
And look, there's a path in the NFC right now.
You know, Niners, they got their issues.
Just absolutely drilled them in the mouth.
Drew Brees can't throw the ball past the first down sticks.
I mean, you know, things are things are looking up for the bucks final.
So, off the games we've gone through, Anthony, we always like to have our whoever is a guest on the show.
Give us their guest. Best bet.
So even either something that we've already hit on or any other game from Sunday or Monday that you wanna lay out as your best bet, we'd love to hear it.
Our listeners would love to hear it and obviously will push it out on Social.
So on and so forth on do all of this will be on our new landing page at us.
Dash odds dot com forward slash or backslash.
We're not sure taking sides.
It's the one with the question mark on it.
You know my best bet here.
I'm gonna go back to the Green Bay Packers.
I think they're gonna take care of business there.
I'm seeing what? They're giving three points right now, and I think they're gonna blow this game open.
Yeah, you said you said you think it's going to be an Erin Jones game vs Aaron Rodgers game, which look whenever that happens, they always win those games where Rogers can have a huge game, and that doesn't mean they're winning.
Almost every time.
Erin Jones has one of those blow up games, they win.
And you're just like, Whoa, they're a different team when he is going for, you know, 23 touchdowns in a buck 20.
Yeah, And look at the Titans.
Last week, they got it done, Tana, as you know as and said he had Tannehill a J and Henry all stack so dreams can come true, folks, against the Houston Texans.
Yeah, it's all right.
All of that for for those of us.
Now, by the way, we're gonna be unable.
Thio have these shows on podcast now.
So for those of us that can't see and there it looked like he was going to say something up.
You know, these air the faults of being the host.
You know, you like the quarterback of the team.
You know, if the team does well, you get all the praise.
And when things go off the board, you gotta You know, You got to take some of the criticism.
I'm just pull back.
I already threw a pick six with the Dallas Goddard thing.
So don't worry about you, Did you? Did your You're very You're very Jamis Winston today.
You're doing a little of everything.
A little of any.
Any other thoughts here, Paul? For the end? Because I know that was probably last game that we're gonna break down for the time.
The so just we didn't hit on this game.
But there's like, one of these Dumpster fire games, which is we have the Lions at the Falcons and those two teams, like, try to lose games where, where it was that game caught my eye because I can't figure out why the Falcons were favored.
I just for the for the life of me, I just can't figure it out.
I absolutely love the Lions plus three or Lions Moneyline, I I just don't see the Falcons unless Rocky moster magically, you know, turn to switch on there, which I don't former Tampa Bay.
Sorry, I'm mixing him up with the running back.
Alright, The rahim ends.
They're very prevalent in the NFL.
But I the I just think the lions air a much better team there, and I can't figure out why they're an underdog.
Where you guys on that game.
I know I'm just throwing this at you because it was just something that I just They're my favorite underdog of the week.
Yeah, the one thing that I'd say to that is, sometimes you can catch lightning in a bottle with changing the coach and just get sort of a new mindset going in the football team.
I mean, obviously, that happened in Minnesota this last week as they get the lead and then hold the lead.
It's like you know how to take the reservation.
You just don't know how to hold the reservation.
But if that's the case and they got a new mindset, watch out.
You know, because a lot of a lot of talk around Atlanta the week before they got that win, that now Atlanta's looking for their new quarterback of the future.
Matty Ice is like hold on a sec, folks.
I could still throw the Rock, even though I tossed away at 28 to 3 lead in the Super Bowl.
But that's neither here nor there.
I'm gonna I'm gonna fence on this Detroit Atlanta game.
It's in Atlanta.
We saw Julio Jones come back and he made an impact that whole offense got going last week.
Detroit, You know, they're supposed to be playing.
It's almost like Atlanta with with Dan Quinn. And he was.
This big defensive goober also was Matt, Patricia.
And on either side, it has never showed up during their 10 years as a head coach.
They won two out of their past three games, but who they really be in the Cardinals and the Jaguars? I actually like Atlanta at home to win this game, and that was huge on the Lions coming into the season.
I thought they had a shot at the division, but it was just the same old Lions.
Oh, man, I was I was hoping that you'd like the Lions.
Now, I don't know what to dio, uh, for me to close it out.
A couple of games I thought were bills, you know, being on the road 13.
5 point favorites at the Jets.
Is it just, you know, everybody pick on the jet season? I guess so, Uh, you know Buffalo kind of had that really bad performance in the rain against Kansas City on Monday afternoon.
So, you know, it'll be interesting to see how they come out.
But, you know, to see the Jets is double double digit dogs at home is pretty interesting.
One thing that I retweeted uh, one of the slowest pace game of the week is actually gonna be the Carolina Panthers at the New Orleans Saints.
Uh, this coming to us from Jared Smoller, Paul.
You know him well, from our days of the dual, we do nothing but, you know, retweeted stuff, but slowest pace of the week with the Panthers at 20.
Run in the 24th, fastest pace on the same running the 27th fastest O R.
Yeah, Well, whatever those, they're down towards the bottom in there, and we've got a total of 51 in this game.
So that's certainly something that I'm gonna be taking a look at, maybe go with an under play there.
I like the Panthers plus the points.
They're partially because of that.
I think it's gonna be a pretty close game, and I think they're plus 7.
5 where, sure, if Michael Thomas plays, it will tweak it slightly.
But I think it's gonna be a close game, and I think it's just too many points.
I like the Panthers plus the points, okay? And yeah, if we're talking about the over under on this game, I think Vegas wants us to go over.
But I would probably take the under here for that reason with the pace.
And, you know, Teddy Bridgewater.
He's a game manager again, another revenge game on the Slave and Drew Brees with same guy.
Let me wait, Let me go get a shot.
Where way? A very run, heavy game.
I think there's gonna be some points.
What's the over under? He said 50 51.
Yeah, I can see both teams scoring in the twenties, but maybe like, uh, like a 24 20 type of score with the with the outcome.
What's the point? Spread? 7.
5 for the Saints.
Yeah, I love that I like I feel like this.
Everyone thinks the Saints are the saints of old, but they're just not anymore.
They're a good team.
They're not a great team.
where way still see them at home, where they're not nearly as dominant now.
Which is why I think this is sneaky Panthers, plus the points one.
Just one more quick hitter. Paul.
You and I could hit on the Jimmy G revenge game on Sunday.
That should be interesting, but Big one in the NFC to for the four o'clock slate.
It's the matchup of former baseball playing mobile quarterbacks with the Seattle Seahawks in the Arizona Cardinals.
So, you know, rusting the boys.
They're favored by three on the road.
I think a lot of people are gonna be looking at that Monday night game with the Cardinals and think that you know their their top **** right now.
But as the K as again, Ah, home team not being favored by three.
It's actually the road team favorite here by the three.
I kind of like the Seahawks in this one.
Any any quick hits when you guys this one.
I'm with you on that.
I like the Seahawks.
I think they win the game.
I think the short week hurts.
The Cardinals Seahawks will win.
Um, it's a question of Is it a three point game Or do they win by a touchdown or more? Seattle should win this game.
But Russell, I mean, Kyler Murray is one in one against Russell Wilson right now.
The last matchup, Arizona 1 27 to 13 on the first game last year was 27 10 s.
So I don't exactly think it's gonna be a close game either way, no matter who comes out victorious.
But the thing here is this Cardinals offense against the Seattle defense.
Seattle's defense is just a bad as Dallas in Atlanta.
And if Kyler Murray can get going in this game, I think they're going to sneak out of a window.
Interesting that thing.
But I I don't think it's impossible to say that Kyler Murray could sneak out a win here if he can play like, you know, like he did almost on Monday night or one of these games, where he goes for 50 60 yards rushing and throws for 2 50.
Well, in the in the Cardinals win last year, it wasn't Kyler.
It was Kenyan Drake, where he had a massive game.
He was 24 for 1 20 change and two touchdowns, where I actually I watched the I did the game preview for the game day, so check out the game day dot com.
You can see it there.
I watch the highlights of that game to try to figure out where I was leaning on this.
Kyler Murray didn't even play the second half.
Nick Hundley with Murray got hurt, so they just kept feeding and feeding and feeding Kenyan Drake, where I think as much as it's a battle of the quarterbacks, it's really is there that that Batman and Robin, whose Robin is going to step up and have a big game.
Plus, there was no no DeAndre Hopkins, where he's gonna make a massive difference.
He's been amazing where I truly think that it's somewhat of a toss up, But if it's a one possession game, I'll take rush every time.
For what it's worth, who said Kyler only played a half in that game? He had 40 yards rushing it in one half.
Yeah, no, he It's a pretty even game.
I just I'm watching the video and I'm like, That's not Kyler Murray.
Who is that? And then he tweets something.
So, uh, Nick Hundley was in their Packers great Nick Hundley, With all that being said 56 point total on that which is second to that, the pack of sections game that we're talking about.
Uh, I think, you know, my mind might have been made up.
I initially had the Seahawks colors on, but I kinda I kinda like some points being scored now.
Just based off what you guys said.
I mean, obviously rusting.
The boy's gonna put points out no matter what, but, uh, you know, it's good to know that they'll be coming back.
It seems like eso Anthony, if you want pub, anything you want.
