So week eight of the NFL season we are coming up here right at the halfway point.
Uh, Paulie, Week seven.
Who was the Who is the one that hurt you this week, Everybody.
It was a It was a bad week.
Um, it was just, like one after another after another.
And I'm I was like, What's happening here? Where I Something was off in my process is what I decided I still went six for 10 on the games that I picked and that I bet on, but every each and every one of those was in a different parlay.
So it was a losing weekend.
Um, I took the cowboys.
They got killed.
They took the patriots, they got killed.
I took the bills minus 9.5.
They won by eight.
I took the Jags plus 7.
5. They lost by 10.
It was that That was my week, E.
I mean, look, I I've been there, you know, while it necessarily wasn't, uh, this week.
Now, granted, I did get a little screwed there in the Seattle game, but finally the bounces went my way.
Pittsburgh was my bet.
There on our taking sides.
Bet one of the 20 yes. Congratulations.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much. That was one of the best there.
And, you know, Steelers were winning all day.
I'm starting to get really frustrated.
I got the lady asking me why you said why you so you know, nasty and why, You know, not nice and all that stuff I'm like, You don't understand what's happening with this game right now.
You know, eso that obviously got Schakowsky missing the field goal at the end.
There were Looks like Tennessee was gonna tie it.
Obviously a tilting moment there, but overall.
Very good. Very good.
They had the 14 parlayed that really hit thanks to Matt Stafford and the Lions there.
Todd Gurley really trying to screw me up there with falling into the end zone when he didn't want Thio ends up doing so for his second touchdown of the day.
But, uh, just just good stuff going into the weekend here.
I'm I needed a week like that, you know? And thank God we're back there.
I'm very happy for you.
Um, I hear here's my saving Grace.
Was the Los Angeles Dodgers I had Yeah, let's have let's pull the cigar, have a little fake puff since we're on the air.
Um, but taking the Dodgers essentially covered my losses for the NFL.
Slate Week eight.
Let's let's let's wait. Let's win some money.
I'm very excited about that.
Now, what did you get the Dodgers that for? Uh, I ended up getting them at minus 200 when the Siris was tied.
11 but, you know, like there was no value for them.
The best odds you could get all season was like plus 300 plus 3 50.
So there was never any value there.
It was Just When are you taking them? What do you risking? And hopefully they'll win.
Very good. Very good.
All right, let's get kicked off today.
The games that we're gonna break down, we're not gonna get into the entire Slade, but also in the chat.
If you guys want to see something, let us know.
But we're gonna break down.
Obviously, the Thursday night game between the Falcons at the Panthers.
Other games that you will be featured on here.
Well, Tennessee Titans at the Cincinnati Bengals.
L A Rams against the Miami Dolphins, The debut for two.
Uh, I still a f c divisional match up with the Patriots and the Bills.
Probably the best NFL rivalry in the NFL, the Steelers at the Ravens this weekend.
Ah, little bit of an interesting total here with the Raiders at the Brands.
And then we'll cap it off with that NFC West battle that we love so much with the San Francisco 40 Niners at the Seattle Seahawks.
But without further ado, in order to start the week off, we gotta have Thursday Night Football.
As I mentioned, it's the Falcons of the Panthers Panthers 2.
5 point favorites here.
We start open at 1 15 for the Falcons and since gone to plus 1 30.
And for the Panthers, it'll be minus 1 43 here.
So I actually and I'm sorry, Thio total of 51 a half on this game.
So I wrote some profits up for this game, so I I kind of like, you know what? We're we're heading in this direction.
But, Paul, let's get your first thoughts here.
Who do you like on this game on the side? I'm on the Carolina Panthers, where I just look.
The Falcons are good at losing at this point, where the last time these teams played was the game that ultimately got Dan Quinn fires.
So we should have you assume somewhat of a different game plan.
Julio didn't play in that game.
He's back for this game Thursday night.
But again, I just don't think he swings the tide enough where the Carolina won by seven.
I believe in that game.
Carolina's at home.
We might get Christian McCaffrey back.
Everything for me says Carolina wins.
I like Carolina minus 2.
5 Carolina money line.
I'll throw that in the parlay.
Maybe, um, but yeah, I see no reason to touch the Falcons with a 30 ft pole, especially after losing to Detroit last week.
So, man, I I was very excited to see to see the news on Chris McCaffrey.
Now, keep in mind as a Bucks fan, I am not supposed to like this guy's game.
I'm supposed toe wish all sorts of evil on the men, but I just gotta respect McCaffrey has been able to do in this league.
So apparently yesterday, a practice he comes onto the field with the Red Practice jersey and then does some sort of like Hulk Hogan, WWF move ripping off the jersey and then putting it on his regular thing right, like that's that's, Ah, morale boost right there for the Carolina Panthers.
Not so fast, my friends.
Matt Rule, you had said in his press here on Tuesday, where he said, It's a long shot that McCaffrey place right.
So granted, here we are Wednesday doing this recording, and I that's where it's at now.
We got to see what kind of practice McCaffrey turns in today, but I would expect the Panthers in a season where they're probably not gonna go too deep into the playoffs to be a little more cautious with their with their prize horse in the stable.
All that being said, if even if they don't go McCaffrey, they've got a very nice fill in there with Mike Davis, who last time he faced the Falcons nine catches on 10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown.
I mean, this is this is what running backs dio against the Atlanta Falcons.
Now I will say this each of the last two weeks against Minnesota and then last week against Detroit.
They've been a lot better at defending those past catch and running back. So you have to wonder.
Uh, Raheem Morris, you know who's taken over the reins is the head coach.
Gotta wonder if that's been just a huge point of emphasis.
Uh, now May I am not the the film watching type.
I read those that do, but I'm certainly going to dig into this a little more before Thursday and we'll see where we go.
But as of right now, I mean, I I would have to be all over that Mike Davis receptions propped up.
Yeah, I hit that thinking about thinking back.
So the last time the teams played, I hit that one.
What I think has happened is all of the Atlanta Falcons have been tuning into the show.
They know that way, talk about them and the fact that they give up lots of passes.
Two running backs.
So they've stepped up their game because of Al Walsh and Polly parlays.
Wouldn't I mean, there we have.
We have so many loyal listeners that they know that we affect the game and we affect the odds on those profits.
I remember even back when we were at the duel, you know, that was the thing.
I don't know if you remember, but remember they had that profit on Fanduel. They said.
Which which player at this position is going? Thio have the most fantasy points this week, and I wrote up this tremendous article about James Connor one of those weeks against the Falcons.
I ended up crushing this, like, plus 2000 profit on Connor getting the most fancy points.
And then they just took that that contest off the board.
Like they just because each week I was throwing, like, you know, 5 $10 that players, and you just make like an absolutely killing.
But I feel confident in saying that I shut down a particular profit on one of the major sites, so I think that's amazing.
Yeah, remember what? Like we kept asking and there's, uh that was that.
It was emails full of ellipsis is when When we got responses for that, they knew that it was it was a losing promotion where Yeah, that's That's the way you gotta look at it where I think that they were new to the game.
They wanted to get people they wanted toe make you feel like Oh, my God. I'm good at this.
Look at all this money I could win knowing that you're just going to give it back at something.
Yeah, and not to mention, uh, the company who was giving away the money.
So I'm publishing the articles, but it's just people helping people, folks, you need to see that in to say society.
But in addition to the prophet there with it looks like Mike Davis.
Uh, that that will be a lot harder to if McCaffrey comes in there.
We can't expect him to play a full complement of snaps, but that would certainly affect things one way or the other.
So keep and keep tuned to that news.
But not only will the running backs have a good receiving profits, but also Robby Anderson, D J.
Moore to top receivers for the Panthers this season.
Robby Anderson actually ranks second in the NFL with 640 receiving yards, while D.
Moore is seventh with 567 receiving yards.
Atlanta dead last an explosive pass rate allowed this season.
We saw him last week like I was kind of goofing on him, saying this guy doesn't throw the ball down the field a little bit, he said.
Yeah, watch this, Walsh.
I got you right here.
How do you feel about these guys on the short week up against A T. L.
I love everything about Carolina.
Like I just think they beat them once they beat them again.
There's no difference in this game, except for the fact that I think the Falcons are at the point where they almost given up where, that's why.
Also, it's like teddy covers like Come on every every.
That's what he is known for.
That's what he does. It's amazing.
He did it again last week against the Saints, where so my thing with this game and one of the reasons I'm so tuned in on it is I own McCaffrey and I own Mike Davis.
What do I do if McCaffrey is active? Do I start both and make them my two running backs? Where Antonio Gibson's on A by which leaves me with This is so sad.
I'm starting right now.
I have Mike Davis and Leonard Fournette as my running back.
That terrible for came back last week for the Bucks, right but like, I can't expect a good game from four net two weeks in a row.
So my plan if McCaffrey places to start both him and Mike Davis, which I think is marginally idiotic, but I don't want to miss out on any points.
Is this a full point? PPR league that you're in half a point.
You have a point. Interesting.
I mean, again for net going up against the Giants, you know? Hey, Fernet against the Giants, I do feel like there's gonna be some opportunities to run the ball, right? The gold one s e Oh, I'm wearing my Giants jersey today because I wanted to thank them for losing Thio to Philly last Thursday.
Uh, they're gonna be so grateful that you did so so grateful.
Oh, this is the famous jersey.
This is the Ron Dayne jersey that when I was forced to stay a Giants fan, Ron Dayne, New Jersey resident or from Jersey, So is always, always good to have that man on the show here.
Great this round.
Although you and I could rushed for 1000 yards behind those tractor Poland, Midwestern boys.
Hey, Jim, man of wheat.
Thank you for the thumbs up, my man.
Thanks for following.
Thanks for following us.
A swell after show.
E want to know if his name is Jim or if he is a gym.
You know the saying, Jim Jets Islanders, Mets fan being in New York, those air gyms where I feel terrible for Jim's because they their their teams air terrible.
The Islanders are on the upswing, but the I mean, the Jets and the Mets, Like I'm I'm a Rangers, Giants and Yankee fans.
So I've been lucky my whole life.
Okay? I don't even know.
I can't even get into what I am. I'm selling.
My stuff is a human being, but your your acronym is tough.
Yeah, I'm gonna say Jim is actually his name.
And, you know, Jim is also fan of Marlin.
If he if he's a Southern guy, he's, ah, Southern Florida guy.
He could be Jim fan of Panther.
Yeah, There's all sorts of things. Yeah.
Does he like heat, or does he like the Miami Heat? I gotta go Miami Heat on this one in the Eastern Conference, defending champ.
I mean, you have to write their I'm answer these questions for us in the chat.
We wanna learn about our about our fans.
We just talked about the Panthers side of things, at least with the pass catchers.
Anyway, let's let's get to the Atlanta side of things here because Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley both had themselves a pretty nice match up here.
Panthers Look, while they are slightly above league average against the past this season, they are absolutely getting destroyed on the ground.
I don't see that type of game from the Falcons.
I just don't think that you're gonna you know, Todd Gurley at 22 carries on Sunday.
I don't think that we're going to see him get a huge volume of work on the ground in this one.
So that would lead me to numerous profits here for the Atlanta Falcons, which I like.
Have you seen Julio Jones? Uh, his numbers on Thursday Night football? I did.
There was this fantastic tweet from a 0.14.
Oh, you're so wrong.
19 walls, 14 days.
Thigh, This guy, he tweeted it out, and I was like, No way, Why don't you tell us about that.
So he's got at least 93 yards in each of his last six games on Thursday Night Football.
So this dates back to 2014 and it's interesting because there are off these six matchups.
Five of them are against NFC South opponents.
What's really funny is that none of them are against the Panthers s.
Oh, okay, Yeah, Three of them are against the state's two against the Buccaneers.
But you look at all these numbers here, and you know, his.
His two most recent ones are actually the ones that you know we want to take a look at.
Ah, combined 33 targets in these games, 21 receptions on that well over 300 yards there.
Now, I will say in these six Thursday night games since 2014 only three touchdowns.
But clearly the volume is there.
I will say this.
The Calvin Ridley did go for a season high against the Panthers this season for 136 yards, but there was no Julio in that game.
So this time around now we also have to bring this up to because it's important.
Julio does have a questionable tag going into this game.
Got a hip injury.
But when the hell is Julio Jones? Not on the injury report, Right.
This guy stays on there.
He don't practice.
He'll come right out and do his thing.
But if if this trend is something to behold, we're gonna have we're gonna have a great night here for Julio Jones.
Yeah, obviously, what Calvin did Julio would have done the last time is kind of the way I look at it.
Where then? The question to me is, Do we touch Calvin Ridley props or we off them because we don't know.
Yes, he had his best game of the season against them, but again, no, Julio Calvin picked up that slack, which puts me on the probably off play Julio's overs and take the Panthers because Julio will get those stats in comeback mode.
Yeah, I'm looking, you know, it's interesting to the Julio hasn't topped 100 yards against the Panthers in his last six games.
However, there's gonna be his first game against a mat Rule led Panthers teams.
Um, you know, we don't know what the Falcons are gonna have in store for them there, but I mean, look, I would certainly take the chance on both Julio and Ridley again.
I just I think the Falcons they're gonna throw the ball a lot in this game.
Which leads me to my next profit.
And they all kind of tie into one another.
But Matt Ryan, 37 a half passing attempts.
Now in 10 of his last 15 games, he's exceeded this number.
And just to go back to it, I mean Todd Gurley with 22 carries on Sunday, you're not gonna feed this guy over 20 carries again on Thursday.
I just I don't see it happening.
I know that these guys, the Falcons have a couple complimentary backs and taken throughout their against the Panthers again.
Gosh, this is the way that you want to beat the Panthers, but we got to be realistic about this now, especially on a road game.
You know, girlie, just he's had so many health issues over the last couple of seasons, and obviously it when they're not in win now mode.
So let Maddy let Mattie Ryan throw that **** ball.
He does have the second most passing attempts in the NFL this season, Yeah, I I like he's He throws the ball a lot.
They're I think they're gonna be behind.
And if they're not behind, you know, it's the way that they'll get ahead.
So, you know, you also know I have a soft spot in my in my heart for matty ice seeing him play during his colleges.
Plus, I know this this it's crazy in my own head, but I'm gonna say it anyway.
You're gonna talk about cookies, aren't you? No.
I'm gonna talk about that.
I would love to see the Cowboys trade for Matt Ryan, who he would he would fit there.
He's better than any Dalton.
Um, he could run that offense and the falcons air tanking anyway.
Then the Falcons will get Trevor Lawrence.
And there you go. Move along.
I mean, I thought the Jets was goes to get Trevor Lawrence, but Trevor Okay, So even if the Jets go on 16 I think Trevor Lawrence comes out, but then forces his way out of New York similar to how Eli Manning forced himself into New York.
He's a He's a Georgia kid.
He would love to play for the Falcons.
It would be a perfect fit.
The Falcons are cleaning house.
They'll start over.
Imagine they get Davos Sweeney there.
Yeah, you like it? I was.
But again, I don't think the Falcons air gonna be bad enough toe win, you know, less games And the Jets.
I just don't think that's possible.
But I do think with the Jets, I think that obviously what is in Adam Gays isn't gonna be there next season.
So, you know, whoever gets that job goes in knowing, hey, like, I have a chance to have Trevor warrants on my team.
So, uh, that kind of changes the dynamic.
Like I know the Jets are a total dumpster fire right now.
But if you know that Trevor Lawrence is going there and you're going to attract some of the biggest names in coaching and G.
M's And just everything you know, like this is it's a brand new opportunity.
And who wouldn't want that to start, right? Like instead of going with the match job? Is your quarterback, for instance, and start a process? No, you're going with Trevor warrants here, So yeah, I think that that that that changes things tremendously.
But Lawrence has the leverage where these players have proven they have. They have the leverage.
What he has is he can go back to Clemson.
I don't think he will.
But Peyton did that to the Jets, then the Jets.
Keyshawn, which he's a great I love key.
He was amazing Super Bowl winner in Tampa Bay.
So But he's not Peyton Manning? Uh, I guess I guess it would be a very nice consolation prize if the Jets could get Justin Fields.
So So I mean, obviously, Lawrence, I feel like Justin Laura Trevor Lawrence would be franchise changing quarterback, whereas Fields obviously going to give you just fantastic production.
But, um, you know, I think the Jets to be lucky.
Anyway, last point that I want to make sure that there's a night game quarterbacks against the Falcons this season.
Paul, get ready.
I want you to tie your shoes for this one because it's gonna knock your socks off right.
4 passing yards and 2.
7 touchdowns a game this season, right? So granted, you know the Falcons have faced some very good quarterbacks.
Uh, Dak Prescott Earlier this season had a nice little field day against them.
But all seven quarterbacks toe face the Falcons on.
We're counting the the combo of Nick Foles and missed Robiskie here.
All seven quarterbacks against them of throwing for over 300 yards.
And four of them actually have four total touchdowns in this game.
So, teddy biz, my man gonna have a nice little game here, Could not pull out the outright win against the Saints.
I tried a live bet on that last week when they were down three.
I thought Teddy could lead him down there, but it didn't work out.
That's all good.
But yeah, if you're doing those DFS stacks and all that kind of stuff Yeah, Teddy biz, for sure in your line up this week.

The guy who plays, uh, he's in the X Men movies.
What? He's so famous, sir.
What? Oh, my God.
Okay, E spot me out here.
No, the famous the famous actor William Shatner.
No, Look this up.
I'm not thinking on this thing while you look it up, I'm gonna introduce you.
Move, move us a lot.
I'm gonna introduce the Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bangles game.
I really like this game for a lot of different reasons this week, and we'll get into it.
But we've got the Tennessee Titans of six point favorites in this Patrick Stewart.
So they're six point favorites in this, and it's interesting because they opened at 3.
5 year against Cincinnati.
Something to keep an eye on.
Uh, they are minus to the Titans.
Reminders to 50 on the money line while we've got the Bangles.
15 on the money line here. Very interesting.
And we've got one of the higher totals this week at 54.
So all that being said I mean this, You know, when you look at the opening line here Tennessee 3.
5, 1 of the great one of the first and also one of the greatest lines that I have ever heard in my betting life.
If it looks too good to be true, it usually is.
And that was kind of like when I first started betting.
That's the one thing that always echoed in my ear.
But this is this is that to a T where the Titans Onley favored by 3.
5, going to Cincinnati, you think? Easy slammed on clay up.
And that's why the line has been moved all the way up to six.
Um, can you can you make a case here for the Bangles? Yes.
The way that I make a case for the Bangles is by buying a point in taking them plus seven.
That's that the line has moved too much.
We missed the boat if you took the Titans when they were at minus 3.
I love it. Now it's in between those.
It's in between the key numbers of three and seven.
So I've now flipped where now I like the Bangles and Joe Burrow backdoor covers.
You know, I think that it will be a close enough game where I like, since he plus the points where I think that that's the best way that we can make the most money here.
We're not taking such a risk where we could take the Titans minus 2 55 money line.
But that's a lot I'd rather do.
Plus seven minus 1 30 on on the Bangles come Sunday.
So you know me, my love for the for the Cincinnati Bengals this season.
I you know, I'm I'm one Joe Burrow short of ah, full Cincinnati Bengals stack in my season long the Joe Mixon Geo Bernard combo on then a J.
Green. Last week I told you a J.
Now he didn't get in the end zone.
He actually he almost caught that Hail Mary there at the end last week.
But yeah, this is This is a nice little team on offense.
You look at Joe Burrow this season, he's got 12345 games already over 300 yards passing.
Uh, kid could run with the ball a little bit, too.
Hey, had 34 wreck rushing yards and a touchdown last week.
So, um, my DFS lineup We're looking mighty good last week with the Joe Burrow Geo Bernard A J. Green stack.
Very, very underground.
But but, yeah, that that was fantastic.
And look, we, as we've seen with the Tennessee Titans, I think the one thing I'm looking at here is the over and this one because I don't know how the Bangles, they're going to stop Derrick Henry on the ground.
I think it's unbelievable, like they're gonna have to put 11 people and one of those stone barriers at the line of scrimmage in order to stop him this week, and I just I don't know how that's gonna happen now.
One of the things that we know about the Titan, and it's very It's very shocking to me since they got to Davian Clowney this year.
But they just have no pass rush whatsoever.
Uh, they're freaking garbage in that regard.
So if you're gonna give Joe Burrow plenty of time to throw, like, you know, he's going to do what he's been doing.
As I said, 5 300 yard games already.
But, you know, we've seen Borough takes, Um, just absolutely awful hits already this season.
If you ain't touching him, he's gonna be just fine.
You're taking the over.
At what number? Because it's moved.
It started at 55 a half. It's a 53.5.
Now, where do you like the over? Because I think those two points can make an enormous difference.
I would feel comfortable at Probably that 53 a half.
I think 54 is probably the best number for this, but well, obviously you'd rather get 53 a half, but yeah, I think 54 if it lands there, I'd be more than comfortable with that.
You want to play? Take a side at 54? Yeah, absolutely nice taking a side 11 thing that we noted last week with Titans game.
So, um, going into last week, the the Titans had with Ryan Tannehill is their quarterback.
They had 13 of 15 games go over the total.
Now that number, it could be 14 of 16.
It could be 13 or 16 depending on where you had that total last week.
But remember most of the week, or I think it opened at 52.
And then it went to, like, 50.
So depending where you were, because it was, it was 27 24 51 points.
So it was right on the mark there.
But point point being in these tightened games, Ryan Tannehill is just a much better quarterback than he ever was in Miami.
And we're just seeing that in terms of points.
You mentioned Robby Anderson in the last game you mentioned Ryan Tannehill.
It seems like everyone that leaves Adam gays become e right? Yeah.
Look, I defended the guy, you know, for a couple, uh, for a couple of points throughout the year, but, you know, he just doesn't have a healthy team, and I can't totally bash him on that fact.
I mean, come on.
Every every good player that leaves Adam gays becomes amazing.
E I still don't know how he got the Jets job, Eric.
The enemy was in the house.
That rule was there.
And, uh, Matt Nagy is that the Bears coach? They all interviewed for that job, and the Jets arbitrarily picked Adam Gates.
How how were they were they like, Well, you know, in 2.
5 years, Trevor Lawrence will be there.
So let's suck so that we could get this guy in a few years, even though we just drafted San Donald.
You know, if the Jets end up getting Trevor Lawrence, the enemy would be just the dream higher there.
The enemy should already have a head coaching job like you're gonna get it.
He's going to get it.
I hope I really dio No, he will this year.
I mean, with such **** trot in franchise like the Giants, or I'm sorry, like the Jets and, you know, pick your other.
You know he's gonna be a better head coach in any of these other people, but I really like him is a nice fit with the jets.
They want to get things going.
I mean, look, there's gonna be plenty of profits and taking this game.
I wonder what the status of Joe Mixon is gonna be.
We're probably gonna figure out have, um, or concrete definition by Friday.
But obviously, he didn't play last game.
Geo filled in just fine for him.
Kind of doing the same exact thing that that mixing would have done there.
So I don't know if mixing this is I'm not gonna place any, you know, less favoritism there on the Bangles, but Bangles over looking like a like a nice little hot bet here early.
I like the under as, like a contrarian bet.
I think that everybody is on the over in this game and that we've seen the Bangles score a lot of points for a lot of points.
So that's the last memory in our head.
But I think that the Titans also coming off a a game against Pittsburgh.
A lot of teams coming off games against Pittsburgh when their beat up, then scored less points the next week, where that's why I'm gonna wait.
I'm hoping the number goes back up a little, I think 55 is the key number.
I'll take take aside with you at 54.
I hope we tie. I would just make me laugh.
Um, but that Z almost.
I'm betting against what? What Joe public likes in this game.
All right, let's get to South Beach.
We were just talking about it.
Our boy Jim, he fan gonna love this one.
Fan of heat. Uh, where he got the Rams.
They're currently four point favorites.
They opened up his 3.
5 point favorites at Miami this week.
On the money line, we see the Rams at minus 1.
10 Dolphins there plus 1 76.
We've got a total at 46 in this game to ah, lot of money coming in on the Dolphins, plus the points here this week.
And of course, that's big, because to a tagger via low, uh, man, I nailed it.
Feels so good when you nail it on the first.
I can't do that, but, uh, yeah, two of this week.
Now, this is interesting, right? So I get what the dolphins were doing by waiting until after their bye week to throw him into the fires of starting quarterback.
However, I don't know that I want my prize possession to have his first NFL game against Aaron, Donald and the Rams, which could possibly kill him right there on the field.
So are you agreeing with with all the money flooding on the Dolphins or you like the Rams there love the Rams here? I will.
I will take a good defense against a rookie quarterback 10 times out of 10.
Alright, I'll probably take the Rams money line because, sure, it could be a close game.
The Dolphins are pretty good there.
Three and three, Um, the Dolphins could lose by three.
I think the Rams could also completely blow them out, so I'll have to decide if I want minus four or Monty line.
But 10 times out of 10 a rookie in his first game ever against Aaron, Donald and the Rams defense, give me the Rams defense every single solitary time.
So what kind of bespoke? They're a little bit early.
The money was very big on the Dolphins spread, however, most of that money has moved to the money line for the Dolphins 70.
About 73% of the money is heading that way.
Um, I think it's kind of interesting, too, because don't forget, the Rams just played on Monday night.
Now they've got to make the cross country trip away to the East Coast for the one o'clock game on a day less rest.
And keep in mind this is Monday night.
You know, they weren't playing like Monday morning where they get some of Monday.
Oh, this is this is definitely gonna be a tight week for them going down in Miami.
Uh, you know, you hope that you know the key players on this team Kinda, You know, get everybody back in a in a good sense, because it really is tough to have that same type of mo mentum in less than seven days here in the NFL.
So I just Look, I'm not that big on I'm not as big on to, uh, is everybody else's.
Uh I just I don't know if he's ready for the NFL game yet.
He could absolutely prove me wrong, but I am with you where I like the Rams.
I just think that Aaron Donald like he's gonna live into his head rent free all week.
Just knowing that that's that matchup is coming up.
I don't know how he got to sleep.
Not only that, he had the bye week to think about it to, uh, so it's gonna be interesting.
One of the things that we saw the 40 Niners do really well against the Rams a couple of weeks ago was doom or of ah, horizontal running game is opposed the vertical.
So I kinda I'm interested to see if, you know, Miami can kind of counteract Donald that way.
But, uh, you know, just watching that game on Monday night, you kind of feel bad for Nikki Falls there on some of those instances and and kind of what they could do to to in this spot here.
Yeah, this reminds me a lot of when these New York Giants started Eli where they were.
I think they had a winning record with with Kurt Warner, right, right.
That's I'm I'm remembering that correctly where they don't it doesn't matter.
It is kind of the best way to explain it.
Where that the lumps that Eli took that season were then why the Giants made the playoffs the next season, where the Dolphins are in the exact same situation led to take his lumps and whether whether they make the playoffs or not, you know, they might imagine if they make the playoffs, then I love to, uh, let's get some long shot rookie of the year props, you know? Think about it.
So Herberts been amazing, but his team is not doing well, too.
It takes over three and three team.
If somehow they get to nine or 10 wins, come to a win Rookie of the year.
Yeah, now, No, you're Herbert Borough. That's it.
I'm strictly Barrow.
Why not? But why not Herbert? Because Borough would have played all 16 games and excelled, right? Like what I just said, Like, you know, the set, the five games to 300 yards and seven tries.
I mean, that's amazing for rookie to be doing, and he looks great, you know, like, of course, the game against the Ravens absolutely looked like a rookie.
But I mean, for the most part, he's just kind of turning this franchise around as we speak on offense, on offense, you got a lot of work to do.
You gotta also realize the Bangles we're gonna trade all of their good players and borough is going to just get ready.
They might trade a J. Green.
Yeah, it's still very young.
And Dunlap and Atkins, So their defense sucks anyway.
Okay, Burrows, Burrows, the second half of the season is gonna get annihilated.
Yeah, which is why he's all right.
He's already getting I know it is just gonna get worse.
E worry about him.
But I hear you one of these three quarterbacks will win rookie of the year, but two.
Is that, like, 20 to 1? Why not throw a couple shekels on that and try to get lucky? Yeah, I guess.
I think if I were a to a believer, I would, you know, have a little more optimism than that.
I just I don't think he's that good.
We didn't think Herbert was going to be good either. And he's been amazing.
Yeah, my thing about two of those.
He was surrounded by world class athletes at Alabama.
Like, let's see what you could do now with the Miami Dolphins you know, And if I'm wrong, I'll take that stance and you know, I'll I'll gladly take my whooping on the behind.
But I just I don't like his throwing motion.
I think we've got sort of, ah, left handed and Philip Rivers sort of thing going on here.
I just I don't think he's got that strong women on.
Oh, yes, I also love him because he's a lefty.
E am a southpaw as well.
Um, but he's the first lefty starting quarterback since.
Do you know the answer? I saw this, uh, David more Cowboys Kellen Moore Gallimore, who is now the offensive coordinator on the Cowboys.
That's how long it's been.
Why did I go, David? I don't know.
That's That's the receiver, uh, receiver in Seattle.
It? Yeah, but they say that the last left to start a game is now an offensive coordinator.
So what you're trying to say is that, too, will be the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback within five years, maybe, Or he was also, without a question, be the the best lefty quarterback in the NFL.
Currently, you're saying, Yeah, easy.
He's without a question.
The best lefty quarterback in the NFL, right now you cannot deny that statement. It's a great statement.
I am going to be all over.
The Cooper cut profits this week.
Slot slot receivers have absolutely dominated this Dolphins team, and if we kind of see the Rams fall into that, you know, South Beach flu, where they come out not looking so great, you know, maybe that leads to more passing attempts throughout the rest of the game.
But I mean slot receivers against the Dolphins.
Uh, later in the week, I will write this up on us odds, and you'll have all the exact on the thing there for the for the wide receiver profits.
But you're definitely gonna see Cooper Cup there this week.
No doubt about it.
All right, let's get Teoh a F C East matchup where we got the New England Patriots in the Buffalo Bills.
Bills installs four point favorites in this one, uh, money line.
We've got the Patriots, their plus 1 90 the Bills there at minus 2 20 total.
We saw it opening 45 a half.
We've seen it kind of make its way down incrementally went down a point to 44 a half and then finally dropped another point and a half.
So now we currently see it at 43.
Lots of money coming in on the under in this one earlier in the week saw a lot of money on the Patriots come in the city situation.
It's like a lot of people might feel like the Patriots.
You know, You said it last week.
The Patriots can't possibly play this bad again.
Well, they certainly did.
Getting their ass absolutely handed to him by the San Francisco 40 Niners.
I actually took the 40 Niners at minus 9.
5 When they were up, I think they were up 14 or something like that.
And immediately they get, like, the touchdown to put him in a or they get to pick to put him in good position to score a touchdown.
So that was just That was just one of those days that you could see with the eye test cam patriots.
They don't got it.
Thies Niners were looking so **** good.
But how you feeling about this one? Because I'm pretty big on Buffalo here, So I think this this has to be the low point in the Patriots season.
Uh, if it's not the low point, I don't know that, like, we have never seen a team in the Bill Belichick era of the Patriots look the way that they looked last week.
Cam Newton is the first quarterback in the 20 years that Belichick has been with the Patriots, who got pulled due to performance.
Really, that that stat blew my mind.
Sure, they take Brady out because they're up at the end of the game and asked all meals a couple times.
Cam Newton is the first quarterback to get pulled in 20 years for the Patriots.
I mean, Belichick has been spoiled.
So and Tom Brady drew blood.
So do Drew Bledsoe was my favorite quarterback growing up.
Don't talk **** about your blood.
So please tell me you have a Drew Bledsoe jersey.
If not, I will get you won the first the first football jersey that I ever got.
It was Christmas, and I got Drew blood.
So in Randall Cunningham, uh, in the same box.
But so even though they've lost three straight, they lost two straight in Foxboro.
The fact that this game has moved to 3.5.
I have to take the Patriots plus the points.
There's too much value.
It's a divisional game.
Josh Allen has looked like trash twice, like trash, where six field goals against the Jets.
I I am relying on Bill Belichick to keep this game within a field goal.
And I like the Pats plus 3.
That doesn't mean I don't like the Bills money line, but I will take the Pats plus 3.5.
All right, I'm going to make this to take a side game because you're gonna take the bills minus 3.5. I am.
And look, love it.
The Bills have looked absolutely horrendous as you mentioned in into his last two weeks.
You know, we saw that that very rainy game against Kansas City.
Uh, you know, the kind of the timing with that game got thrown off to with the cove? It and I don't know what the hell happened last week against the Jets.
I was watching a lot of that game.
They moved the ball.
They just could not get touchdowns in there.
Obviously, you're gonna need that against the Patriots.
But I'm just I am really down on this Patriots team.
I have never been a Cam Newton to New England.
Believer like I never thought it was going to make them great.
I know what happened early on in the season, but you gotta think maybe, you know, is can start to feel some side effects of that cove. It is.
He heard a little bit.
He just looked so bad last week where, you know, I'll be ****ed if I thought he was throwing at the ground a couple times on purpose.
You know, like he just he's bad.
His mechanics are all out of whack on just the rest of this Patriots team like Julian Edelman.
You know, a guy that we have known to be one of the more reliable receivers in football.
He's dropping passes left and right after him.
What do you got? You got to marry Bird and the keel, Harry.
Two guys who aren't doing ****.
So I don't know what these guys were doing on offense.
All they really got going for him is a couple James White.
Check down passes, and that's about it.
So I don't know how they're going to get this done against Buffalo.
Uh, you know, we could make the argument that, you know, Bill Belichick absolutely has Buffalo's number, but we've seen a lot of things that we haven't seen from Belichick and the Patriots before.
I think this is gonna add on to it.
I think Buffalo is gonna come out and play very well in this game and get themselves back on track.
I think the Pats will pull out all the stops.
We're gonna see gim**** plays.
We're gonna see Cam running a lot.
And the reason that I feel this way is if the Pats lose this game, their season is over.
This this game decides whether they stay in the hunt or if they just prepare for next season.
This is This is where they can turn the page where so many guys opted out because of the pandemic, where if they can get ah, high draft pick.
Belichick will use that.
He'll get all the guys from his defense back and they'll be great again next year where it could be Cam.
But I am sure that if they lose this game, they're going to start seeing, you know, What do they have instead, Um, there they'll start playing a bunch of the younger guys just to see what they have in them.
Which is why I think Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick will come up with a game plan to win this game and stay in the hunt for the rest of the season.
Plus, they're not gonna lose four in a row.
She's not gonna happen.
My somebody's gonna be wrong.
Hopefully to you.
Hopefully if you know that.
Uh, yeah, in this game, I kind of feel like the Bills were struggling without John Brown.
And the lineup makes such a difference.
Yeah, you wouldn't think so, But the games he's in, he stretches the field.
Makes a difference when he's not there.
Josh Allen just looks worse.
Yeah, again, we got to see if he's gonna be in the lineup this week.
Uh, Stefon Diggs going up against Stefan Gilmore.
That should be a fun matchup.
Patriots were actually shopping Gilmore.
I've heard so again, you know, if that deal comes down during the week that it's obviously going to be big thing.
But again, I don't know the Gilmore is necessarily his usual dominant self couple Been burned a couple times, Uh, you know, and just giving up some big games.
So again, I'm not.
I'm just not impressed with this Patriots team.
I know this this Kobe era has done some wacky things to a lot of different teams, and I think we kind of just expect certain things to change on a dime.
And they haven't yet.
And I'm not I'm not ready for Thio.
Get on this Patriots band way.
Don't forget to how many guys opted out because of co vid for the Patriots like this was this might have been like the back the back door plan here for them.
So, uh, you know, finally see that come to fruition.
They'll trade up and they'll get Trevor Lawrence.
Yeah, uh, would you be surprised now I would be like, Well done.
So All right, let's get to the best rivalry in football.
It's the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It's the Baltimore Ravens.
We got the Ravens favored by four points in this game.
I don't know how Moneyline sitting there minus 200 for the Ravens for the Steelers plus 1 75 a lot of money coming in on the Steelers, as you would imagine, uh, in this game that we had a total open up at 49 points, dropped off a cliff all the way down to 46 a half for this one.
So we know that this is typically a nasty rivalry.
I'm very shocked to see the Steelers, Aziz, underdogs of anything more than a field goal here, would say you, um, I actually wrote a betting preview for this at the game day dot com if you if you guys want to check it out.
Um, it just went live, actually.
But I the Steelers are the last undefeated team in the NFL yet there 3.
5 point underdogs or four point underdogs. Even better.
I love the Steelers, plus the points.
It's gonna be a close game.
It's going to be decided by a field goal.
So let me have the best team in football right now, plus the points every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Yeah, I'm trying thio like find the rationale as to how this line is what it is.
I mean, I know that the Ravens air coming off the bye week.
Uh, don't forget Mark Ingram.
Probably gonna be out.
So Gus Edwards, one of the more popular pickups and fantasy this week, by the way, don't love that.
Pick up his schedule the next couple of weeks. Not so great.
So if you spend all that fob on August, Edwards might wanna try to recoup some of it somehow.
But I just I'm trying to think of a way.
And, you know, obviously it really looks like teams have figured out Lamar Jackson already.
It feels like it didn't take long, But he's just not the dominant self that he was last season.
And you know, one thing that we know about the Steelers defense, they're coming.
They are coming after you.
As you mentioned, uh, whatever you said all day and twice on Tuesday, Whatever the hell, twice on Sunday, twice on Sunday.
That is when they play the game.
But yeah, I just I can't see any viable way. Now.
I will go back to what we were talking about Tennessee and Cincinnati and saying that it looks too good to be true.
Oh, well, guess what we got that right in front of us right here.
So I I am certainly gonna be digging in with the with the pitchfork and a shovel in toe into this game to see what the hell is going on.
But I just don't see it right off the bat.
So this is also the first ever matchup between Lamar and Big Ben.
Last last season, Lamar beat the Steelers, but that was against Mason Rudolph.
At the end of the season, RG three actually beat the Steelers.
They s so Ben was out all last season.
This is the first game that we have these two amazing quarterbacks facing off.
And there's a reason that Ben came back this season.
This is I feel like this is gonna be a statement game.
However, Deontay Johnson is questionable, and that could make a difference in this game.
He's been great.
Um, but you still have Judy.
You still have Claypool like there's enough other weapons that, like you, said, the number doesn't make sense.
It's one of those weird weird lines, you know, like we used to say way where that's that's the only thing that will scare me away from potentially taking the Steelers is something doesn't make sense.
It's like they want us.
Please take the Steelers.
Please take the Steelers where the one thing that's going for the Ravens is Harbaugh has a winning record against Talman in their career, and they're coming off a bike.
Yeah, the way that I could see this may be working out.
You know, Pittsburgh just comes in waves with those blitzes.
So if you know Baltimore has something up their sleeve in this game in terms of, you know, these option or Pio type plays maybe something, something, maybe some things there.
I just I don't see it.
Usually I like to be on the side of the road less traveled, but I can't find it right now.
I'm very sorry, all right? I got nothing here any any profits, anything else that, uh, that you came across there in that preview that you wrote? I also said that I'm avoiding the over under where all the data shows it's a It's a coin flip.
That's literally the line is right.
I think it's 46 a half.
Let me make? Yeah, like the numbers, right? It's We don't know.
There's no data on Big Ben verse.
The only other thing that I said I'd consider is the Steelers Moneyline, where they're undefeated.
Why not take them? Plus 1 65? No one's beaten them at this season.
Yes, I understand Baltimore is a top five team, but I'm going to go with the undefeated team until someone beats them.
All right, let's get to the next one here.
I like this one.
I think this is gonna be my favorite play of the week.
And what is it? We've got the Las Vegas Raiders at the Cleveland Browns Browns open his 3.
5 point favorites.
We're starting to see it.
Go down to three now.
Money line school, even here.
Even I lost my track on the number here, but, um, here we go.
35 for the Raiders, minus 1 55 for the brand's total.
So Sunday night, I What I typically do is I take a look at the lines.
I write them down.
I see you know where the money's going? This and that.
And then we track from there throughout the week.
It was amazing to see the Raiders right.
And this is the same day that they just get clubbed over the head by the Buccaneers at home by 25 points to see the amount of money pouring in on the Raiders.
Both spread money line.
And this is funny to the money.
Absolutely poured in on the over early.
Yet we've seen the total go down three points.
So it opened to 55 a half, which I believe would be second highest on the slate right behind Minnesota Green Bay.
And then it went down to 52 a half.
So with all that money pouring in early on the over, and we're getting such a huge reaction on the line coming back three points, I got my goggles on, my friends.
So it means one thing.
I've reversed movement, which which we all should love or we're getting some weather information that we're not aware of yet, So this is certainly a situation that you know, going into it on the total, But the fact remains, is that all that money keeps coming out on the Raiders, and, you know, obviously they got embarrassed in that game.
We've talked about this plenty of times.
You get embarrassed in sort of a national TV sort of game the next week.
You want to come out on fire making sure that everybody knows that That was a mistake.
Yeah, I wrote off on my board.
Kind of Baker Mayfield look better after he lost his best receiver in Odell Beckham.
Jr is weird, however, we've now seen this happened twice when Odell Beckham is off the field.
Eli look better where it's kind of like what's going on here? Is Baker just going through his progressions now and being a quarterback rather than try to force the ball to Beckham just because he's Odell Beckham Jr.
If you don't get him the ball early, he then becomes lackadaisical.
Yeah, and you could lose him for the rest of the game, which obviously you don't want right.
I don't know what version of the Browns are gonna show up, which is why I'm sort of just thinking I'm off.
Or maybe I'll take the under because Las Vegas runs the ball as well as they do.
You get a Josh Jacobs game going, which then limits the amount of possessions for for the Browns.
The Browns don't have their best player.
Put that all together less score.
Yeah, looking at the money towards the total.
Now, now, a lot more money is going towards the under.
So I kind of feel like that would believe me to believe that weather is probably gonna play a factor in this.
Uh, you know, I'll take a look at it after I throw another point out there, but, um, yeah, part of that, too.
And I totally agree with you with the whole thing about Beckham, where he commands so many targets and, you know, it's it's all a me, me, me game for him, right? And once you get that out of Baker's head like he I think he started out 05 Mayfield in that game last week, and that's then only had, like, one incompletion the rest of the game.
Let's also keep him on to that.
He was playing the Cincinnati Bengals, which obviously great matchup for anybody out there.
But, you know, the Raiders aren't necessarily, you know, they got absolutely tossed by the Brady last week.
So going to be going to be one of the things that we're looking out for, but I think probably the one that I'm most confident in right now.
Readers, money line.
I might even throw some money on this today.
I I really feel good about them.
While, you know, we look at the Browns and the great day that that baker Mayfield had with five touchdowns, you know, the defense is still it still leaves a lot to be desired right there.
So this could be a very big day for Josh Jacobs.
And, you know, we're already seeing over 80% of the money on that Vegas money line right there as the spread has come down a little bit for them.
So I think where people trying to take that chance there.
But this is this is my best bet of the week that I'm going with readers money on Wow.
I'm not sure why, but I dio I'm just looking at the Raiders schedule, and it's so hard like that.
They're three and 33 right now is an accomplishment, you know, Panthers week one.
I'll give them a win there, then Saints, Patriots, Bills, Chiefs, bucks.
That is a gauntlet that they're three and three.
I think we might be underrating them a bit.
And that obviously, yes, they're gonna They're on the road in Cleveland.
Um, but I kind of like you kind of like it.
So I might have to get in on that with you.
With you, my friend.
So one thing to keep in mind to just sort of Ah, very not even sort of.
It was an absolutely chaotic week for the Raiders last week, especially with the offensive lineman not knowing what they were doing.
Keep in mind they faced the best run defense in the NFL last week to so again, You can't get that ball moving on the ground against the Bucks.
That really kind of changes your whole offensive philosophy and the Raiders air running football team that that's what they do.
They wanna bully you up front, and they just they weren't able to do that against the Bucks.
And then we saw that the passing game not work, and it just kind of went all downhill from there.
The game was a lot closer than the final 45 to 20 score like it was a one score game there at one point late.
And then the Bucks just added to tough touchdowns there.
But, yeah, I I really love the Raiders this week, and I'm definitely taking them on the money line before you do anything.
Wait and see the status of Trent Brown.
He makes such a difference with that offense, where he's on the Kobe 19 reserve list.
If he plays, absolutely love it.
If he's out, they're just The offense is different because he's so great at protecting the quarterback and and at creating holes for the running back.
Yes, and again, that is true.
Um, this is definitely, uh, yeah, very Trent Brown.
Heavily related, though.
So before we go to the next game DeVeaux.
Junior love deVeau Jr.
One of our What do you guys think about Justin Turner taking a hard right turn from from football into the world? Siri's last night? Yeah.
What do you think about Justin Turner? I could I could rent a bit in a minute, but talk to me, you know.
So I remember we talked about this pre show, and I saw a little bit of what happened.
I didn't catch everything that happened.
So he got taken out middle of the game, correct? Yeah, he got taken out in the middle of the game and I remember the announcers saying, like, we don't know where Turner is.
Listen, that and I kind of just, like, wrote it off.
And then it came out that he had co vid and then came out.
I just It's a very irresponsible thing to do.
Especially, you know, kind of the world that we're in right now.
And, um, you know, it's not like you.
You and me kind of hanging out, like in our living room or anything like that, Like you're around numerous other people, like 60 other people.
Let's just say between the team coaches, training staff, you know, whoever but Children.
Yeah, So Turner comes out and says, You know what? I want a title.
I'm just I'm just gonna do this.
That's not the way that you do things.
And if you dio make sure you come out with a with a friend of mass. Yeah.
So he came out with the mask on.
But then during the photo, the camera is zoomed in on him and he just takes it off.
Yeah, and I just I think the optics or just so terrible.
I understand you want a world Siri's and you want to celebrate with your teammates.
But imagine if he gets someone sick like that's it.
It's It just makes you look like you don't care about anyone else.
Where from what the reports have come out is that Major League baseball wanted him to stay quarantined wherever he waas by himself in a room.
And he just refused where he I guess he was like, Hey, season's over.
You can't do anything to me.
I'm going to celebrate with my team.
I was just amazed.
I think that's also why the whole team was wearing those masks.
They weren't wearing them during the game, but then that he came out and took it off.
I was just like, Come on, man, that just looks so bad.
And if they're the journalists, the people that were there, the photographers, if any one of them now gets sick and somebody else gets sick and somebody else gets sick It just makes him look so bad.
Like he just doesn't care all because he you want a world Siri's.
I don't feel bad for you like you're a professional athlete.
You get to play a child's game every day and get paid millions of dollars for it.
Where just to do that was so selfish.
Yeah, he's gonna have a nice second career to if the Wyndham rewards wizard if anything ever happens to him, Justin Turner can step right in and they don't skip a beat.
Wyndham Rewards is covered, too.
Yeah, look, uh, that's That's really all I have to say about it.
Didn't look right.
It looked wrong.
It made everyone question it where the fact that everyone is talking about it today says everything that it needs to say.
I absolutely think Major League Baseball is so happy that the Dodgers won that game.
Imagine if the raise one on we had to play a Game seven tonight.
What would What would they have done? Would they opposed Game seven? Everybody gets tested.
Imagine the entire Dodgers team is out with Cove in Dave, Robert has to suit up what? We literally don't know what would have happened.
So I am sure that man for it in all of baseball is so happy that the Dodgers won so they don't have to deal with whatever could have ultimately occurred today.
Man, the city of L A got it in last night.
They went all Philly style on there.
Because it was they did the friggin, uh, you know, like the world.
Siri's celebration out in L.
Last night on just, like, absolutely painted the town red like they took.
There was an 18 wheeler that had, like, groceries and stuff like people broke into it and, you know, started like throwing like loaves of bread out like he was Denzel Washington and American gangster out there.
What, tonight? That's terrible.
I, uh de Vaux Jr says, Yeah, it was Game seven.
We would have missed mass singer.
I totally agree, e.
I don't know why I like the show, but I just keep watching it, and I'm like, This is terrible, but I'm watching it.
I am not a mass singer guy.
I need to see the face.
I think I might watch it because like, one of my first crushes as a child was Jenny McCarthy.
And she's one of the hosts.
And like, yeah, she was on singled out.
I'm gonna I'm gonna underwhelm you big time I'm or of a Sandra Bullock.
I myself, that's not underwhelmed.
That's a great one.
But when you look at it Jenny McCarthy and the little you know Sandra Bullock their to their to two different opposite ends of the spectrum.
You went wholesome.
I went blonde and, you know, whatever.
Mhm I'm more of a kind of wholesome kind of guy.
What's your What's your favorite Sandra Bullock movie? Uh huh.
I probably I mean speed, of course, is right up there.
Let's go, Miss Congeniality.
The proposal was funny.
I didn't like I didn't expect it to be good, but it was funny, uh, forces of nature.
That's a bad See, I'm a big Ben Affleck.
I could every like, pretty much every.
If you hate, if the if there's a majority of hate for that person, I like that person just because, like, you know how Everybody hates Joe Buck.
Joe Buck is my favorite person on the face of the earth.
What? This is weird.
But what do you thought on Mel Gibson then? Well, that's a different hate, right? Like there's more.
There's specific hate.
Where is Joe Buck? They're like, I don't like that guy's face.
I don't like that guy's voice.
It's not like Joe Buck is, you know, out there being a jerk to like a particular group of people.
Joe Buck is great.
I don't understand why people give him crap.
I think he's awesome.
It's It's that mob mentality.
So you don't like? Well, now I don't like him and I go the opposite.
I do the reverse on that ****.
All right, now that we're gonna celebs.
So we're gonna watch the mass singer and text each other tonight.
I can't I can't do that.
You're busy? Yeah.
Not watching it.
What are you gonna watch? Instead? I might rearrange my sock drawer.
You're gonna watch a speed two.
Cruise control, By the way, Dennis Hopper.
Great great villain in spirit in the original.
Jeff Daniels played the played Chiana Reeves partner.
Yes, he certainly.
All right, All right, let's get to the last game of the night.
It za dandy folks.
We see it way too often, but that's OK.
You don't either.
Uh, San Francisco 40 Niners Seattle Seahawks Seahawks three point favorites here in this one.
The money line absolutely fell off a cliff for both sides.
Well, good in one direction.
Bad for another direction.
But let's let's note the 53 point total in this one first.
But the 40 Niners opened on the money line at plus 2 20.
They have gone down drastically toe plus 1 50.
And then we take a look at the Sea Hawks, who started out at minus 2 60 now they're currently minus 1 65.
So San Francisco, the injuries keep piling up.
Not only is Mostert out Jeff Wilson Jr.
It was out on his third touchdown of the game, so heartbreakingly get a high ankle sprain and he's out.
I picked up my boys and Michael Hasty this weekend for $12 of fob on there.
That's gonna be wonderful.
So I'm really looking forward to this game.
Niners offense looks like it's back on track that's to just complete dominating wins.
Back to back for the Niners.
Are the Niners back once and for all? I don't know.
I mean, the line started at six.
Now it's down to three.
Every every Seahawks game comes down to the last possession.
They're great to watch.
They've essentially taken over Sunday Night Football.
I believe they've been like four of those six games, which is insane.
But it's not E no, thankfully, thankfully.
But this this is there's only 333 games in the four o'clock slate.
So you know we have This will be the game that we're all glued.
Um, last season, the game came down to the last possession for the one seed in the conference, where obviously the, um, the 40 Niners are missing a lot of key players here.
So that makes me lean, too. Like Seattle.
Seattle's at home in this one, too, right? Or is it in San Francisco? This one is in Seattle.
Yeah, so I guess I like Seattle, but I don't want to give up three points. Four points.
Whatever it is, it went from 6 to 3.
That then makes me like Seattle a little more.
If I could get Seattle 2.
5, then I'm even Mawr saying, Hey, I like Seattle, But again, it's gonna This game is going to come down to one possession at the end of the game.
Who do you trust? Jimmy Garoppolo or Russell Wilson? Jimmy Garoppolo? Uh, because you are a potential wrong answer because you are expected s so I think we kind of found, I think the Arizona Cardinals created a little bit of a blueprint last week on how to get to Russ Wilson in this offense.
Blitz the House, bullets the **** house on this on Wilson and everybody, because once the Cardinals started doing that on Sunday night, it was a totally different ball game on.
Look, the Niners, they got the hostage to do it.
Granted, some of their best players on defense are injured.
If you look at what this Niners team has done over the last two weeks, it is just a two. They are.
It's running the football.
It's dominating games on defense.
It's just keeping the ball away from the other team.
And again, you're gonna have to do that.
This week against Russell Wilson.
Now we talked about John Michael Hasty, right? The probably one of the best waiver wire pickups and fantasy this week.
I'm putting in the waiver move right now.
This guy is fantastic, Like the amount of athleticism this little dude has.
Three only reason that he really wasn't getting a lot of touches is because of how crowded that San Francisco 40 Niners backfield this.
Just essentially think about what the Pittsburgh Steelers and more recently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are doing with wide receivers in terms of drafting and getting these guys just think about that.
But in terms of running backs, this is they have an absolute stable of thoroughbreds in this San Francisco 40 Niners backfield.
I am not impressed at all with Jeremy or Jerick McKinnon.
Uh, this is this is gonna be the hasty show for the next couple of weeks.
Wilson's got that high ankle sprain.
He's probably at least out three weeks.
I think most it's gonna be out the next two weeks, but again against the Seattle defense, this is certainly the guy that you wanna get the ball Thio like McKinnon is just kind of like running around in quicksand and not really not really the guy that Shanahan wants right now, So I have both hasty and hide on waivers.
Those two starters this week.
Well, I banged up to Yeah, also, San Francisco gives up the least fantasy points to running back.
So I don't love that where I only have $17 left.
Eso I'm gonna You're one of those guys, aren't you? I lost McCaffrey, so I spent big on my dog.
All right, so it's it's logical.
I think whenever our trade deadline is, I can add 25 extra dollars, but I don't know when that is.
So I got to figure out.
So you got hasty at 12.
So that's about the number that I need to be at.
But then I'll only have $5 left for the whole like, for weeks, So I don't know if I needed 12 for Hasty.
I I mean, maybe, um, it just depends what people's running back situations were.
But like I needed a guy bad because I got I essentially have the Pittsburgh and Cincinnati backfield and I just like the both of those guys have a bye week coming up, so I really needed somebody.
So I went with the 12 for Hasty, but yeah, I mean, if you watched any of that game against the Patriots on Sunday, you saw exactly the type of talent level that this guy has and, you know, just kind of reading through some old articles and stuff like that.
Shanahan absolutely loves the guy.
So he's definitely gonna get touches and get yards like I would not be shocked at all if he ends up somewhere in the 100 yard range and puts a touchdown in a Well, one thing to note on this game to, uh, you know Chris Carson believe he's gonna be out hides, got hides, got the injury to.
So this could be a, uh, what was the guy's name? Something Dallas, Isn't it Travis Homer? Well, Travis, Homer.
And then there's another guy that they got his last name. Dallas.
I think it's like something like trend hides trending towards playing, so hopefully he's in, and then we don't have to worry about who they're fourth string.
Running back is interesting.
Uh, de Vaux, Jr.
You see, he's asking us a question you want s.
So let me be the Morgan Freeman.
Narrator here, Uh, should you start to, uh, I wasn't gonna I should you start to it for a week? Eight, because he's got kind of Mariana by.
Should he pick somebody else up or keep to, uh, for the starting job? My long and short answer is, do not start to, uh, he's not gonna have a good game.
Like we said earlier, Aaron, Donald is going to be a game record.
I would love to know who else who's on your waiver wire that you can pick up.
Um, I don't see all that much value into it.
If it's not a keeper league, I don't think he's gonna be great this year.
Yeah, you could play Derrick our cars and he's playing the Browns.
I saw a guy in my league and remember, we're talking about it.
Every quarterback so far this season has thrown for over 300 yards against the Falcons with the side note there, Travis Key and folds doing it together.
But I saw a guy pick up Teddy Bridgewater on my waiver wire.
That would be nice.
Little pick up if you could get him against the Falcons on a short week.
Remember, we talked about all those explosive pass plays going against the Falcons.
They are in NFL worst in that regard.
So especially if you've got a guy like Robby Anderson or D.
Moore or something that you could air with him.
The possibilities are endless, My friends.
Also, Teddy threw for 300 yards three weeks ago against this team, and they had two or three touchdowns, you know, he tore them up? Yes.
All right, so I think final final decision on the nine of Seahawks or waiting a little.
My final decision is injury report.
All right, good.
You need to see an updated injury report before it could really make a decision.
Because truth is, if Seattle is down to their fourth running back, I'm just not going to touch the game.
Or if the line moves back and goes up again, then I might take the Niners plus four or five.
Fair, fair, fair. Fair enough.
