and welcome to I bring you guys quality content display in, day out.
So as far as the bets on, right podcast goes guys, like I said, we're looking here at the A F C North, which is, you know, ah, very hotly contested division.
Year in, year out.
Obviously, the Ravens took care of business in that division last last year.
You know, the coming out property from Mark Jackson on the biggest Mark Jackson fan of them all.
So you can, you know, you understand that.
So we also have another guest as well.
Uh, his name is Matt.
He's coming up on.
He's one of Alex's friends.
I'm He's a big SC nor supporter as well.
I believe he's a Steelers fan.
We're gonna get him in here as a student is, um, both both those guys in here seems to get into yourself.
Um, So, like I said, we went around the NFC East last week and we picked a couple beings that I thought, you know, we're a little bit against the grain.
Well, you know, we'll see how it all falls out at the end and at the end of the day, so I Really? I'm excited to get into this FC North.
Just because I know Alex is a big Pittsburgh guy.
And I believe Kitty is, um Maki is as well so of insurgency, their perspective on the Steelers this year.
So, um, just see if we can get them in here soon.
Was getting invite them now.
So obviously that we were talking about the Bengals and the Browns, and a lot of people are very excited.
The Browns are public team, so it will be interesting to see these guys perspective on the Brown season this year as well as you just you just never know.
I mean, they had a lot of high expectations last year.
So, like I said, answer North usually have probably the best rivalries and in the NFL.
So it'll be nice to I'm going to see how that all plays out.
And here is Alex right now holding up the terrible towel.
Now that What's up, man? How are you doing? Oh, man, It's been a long week, man.
How's your week been, man? Yeah, hanging in there.
It has been a long week.
You know, lots of differing things going on in the world today.
So hopefully we can give a little something everyone to get away from everything.
So, for just ah, a brief moment in time.
So I did suddenly invite to Matt.
He hasn't jumped in yet.
So what's West change? She? Is he a Pittsburgh Steeler fan as well? No, he's a Baltimore Ravens fan.
Oh, even better.
His his sleeper emblem is Ah, Is the Ravens.
Yeah, you're right.
Well, um well, we should look for the 40 Niners today.
Just little cap love, you know? That's right.
Yeah, he's a Ravens fan, so I'll be I'll be nice to have.
I mean, I'm kind of jealous of the Ravens, actually.
So wastefully are a very wealthy team town. Waas.
I'm just being on the the same side as like Lamar Jackson is absolutely love his ability.
So, um, we're just gonna We're gonna move on as you can jump in here anytime.
And that's fine.
Um, or he's going to start with the Cincinnati Bangles.
So the Bengals there over under is at 5.
5, which is fairly low.
The over is paying a dollar 76.
The under is paying a dollar 98 to make the playoffs, Cincinnati Bengals are paying $6.
50 to make the playoffs and to not make the playoffs.
That's bringing Dollar eight, obviously, uM, not huge expectations there at 5.
But what a year Thoughts on the Cincinnati Bangles this season? Well, the Cincinnati Bengals are entering a new era after jacking quarterback Joe Burrow.
They currently have sure headed Joe Mixon, who has a really intriguing stat, having not fumbled the ball since 2018.
And that's over 500 touches.
So very impressive ball security Right there.
Green looks to be healthy, returning back to the field who I personally don't believe is gonna produce or be.
As dominant as he was in the past.
Higgins, who looks to join Tyler Boyd as you know, the future white out regime of this team.
And defensively, you know, they do have some linemen that kind of build up a great unit was like Carlos Dunlap, Gino AC and Sam over just to name a few, but I think the Bengals defense is going to hurt them more than what the ceiling of the Bangles offense is gonna help.
Depending on how confident you feel in borough in this division, Like, just you know what, the Ravens and Steelers and then you also have, you know, a team that you can't necessarily underestimate with the Cleveland Browns, because you never know if they're gonna play for the hype the week for that week or if they're gonna be a downer that week.
But I'm gonna go with the under and have their ceiling at about, actually five games.
So I'm not I don't think Borough is gonna be ableto, uh helped them bury themselves out of some of those leads that the defense is going to give up.
I mean, it's tough.
I mean, you wouldn't know about growing up as a kid.
This guy with huge Bangles fan.
Um, just I like tigers.
Before I became patriots frame.
That was a small child.
I like the striped helmets.
He just text me.
I'm not seeing it.
Uh um, it's very about that. Everyone.
I'm just trying to get Matt in here.
Well, being this part up to the podcast for sure.
Um, so, yeah, I get behind the curtain type stuff here, so obviously with you have the Bengals.
I mean, 5.5 is so low.
I just I'm just worried about, you know, I think they did actually a really good job with their off season.
Like, the Bengals are known for not spending a lot like holding clutching their pearls with their draft picks, So they're never gonna trade much.
You know, there's going to kind of stay put, gonna keep the players that they have.
They do tend to look, you know, take a little bit more risk for our talent.
As we saw when they took Joe Mixon, who has really paid off for them.
Um, I think he's absolute stud.
I think he's a top five back in this league.
Unfortunately, necessaries offensive line is still serious problem, and it was a huge problem last year.
It's still a problem, they added.
Xavier Su, a Filo stepping in at right guard, and left tackle Jonah Williams is finally gonna play after missing his entire rookie season, but they can still use a lot of help up front.
Um, so I wouldn't be surprised if they add a few more bodies there.
Um, but obviously getting job barrel number one If that works out, you know, it's viewed as a victory like he just has.
Ah, a mediocre type season, enough to show that, you know he's got problems going forward.
I think that's a win for them this year.
Uh, just with T.
I think he is kind of a J Green clone, maybe with a little bit less speed.
So it'll be interesting to see how that all works out.
We got Tyler Boyd there in the slot as well.
You know, you got John Ross, who they drafted a few years back, who's got electric speed.
They got, I got weapons.
It's just about will that offense aligned be able to hold up and on defense? You know, they added some some pieces that added, you know, D J great reader and Trae Waynes, you know.
So they added some corner of access, you know, trip.
Having Trae Waynes there is interesting because he's had a lot of penalties and consistency, and Minnesota wasn't you know what it needed to be, but he's an upgrade over with the Bengals had it, you know, in 2019 so I can't really complain about about that.
But I do think they did some nice a nice job this offseason.
I don't think they're really ready to compete yet.
And you know, they're looking at, Yeah, five or six wins.
I'm going to stay away.
But if I had toe play, I probably I would lean the over.
I'm going to get the six winning.
So I'm being a little bit sitting on a fence a little bit, but, um, yeah, I wouldn't go the six wings.
I really got pressing.
You said You only get to pick this this team for this year.
I'm taking the six wins.
I think they get to six.
And, yeah, I think it's a big mixing season.
I think it's a big I think T.
Higgins is a better comes out a little bit better than people think with the start here. Sidebar.
How how well do you think, bro? Either kind of performs a list of the season? Granted, you know he's got a face, the steal, the Ravens defense and the Steelers de plants among some other units.
You know, How do you think Joe Burrows in a fair this year? Yeah, it's an interesting question. I think.
I think he can, you know, be like, if you think he's gonna be like, um, a superstar right away.
I don't think that's gonna happen to get rarely happens the NFL.
But, you know, he could throw for, you know, 4000 yards and have, you know, 20 2020 touchdowns they're gonna be Everyone would be happy with that if he kept his picks under 12 ish.
Um, you know, everyone will look at that as being a successful rookie season.
I mean, column really what? He had 21 such as last year's rookie, So you can get to around that number.
I think people will be happy with that, Especially with the squad that they have this year.
I think they're probably wanted 1 to 2 seasons away.
Still, I think depending on Barrow season this year and how you can progress from year one to year two and then you know what happens with a J.
Green? What happens is that receiving, um, core like Joe mixes Gunawan New Deal so it's gonna be an interesting the next few seasons How they build around Joe Borough.
But I do think that he's capable off putting up, you know, a nice season for rookie.
What are your thoughts on that, Um, on Joe Borough? Yeah, I think he'll play, you know, pretty pretty well, but I don't I don't expect them that, you know, just come out here and just torch defense is kind of like how I think I've seen on Twitter.
It's always funny when you when you just kind of here like the fan like you kind of start seeing Bangles.
Fans come out of nowhere and it's it's funny.
Other, like he's gonna throw 40 touchdowns to a J like auto all their receivers.
And it's, I think, just like what you said.
That the makeup of the offensive line.
You know their defense, though, isn't that formidable.
I think you know he's He might be in one of those spots where, like, you know, you know, Cam Newton had a pretty decent year his rookie year, and it just kind of took the rest of the team kind of getting up to speed toe kind of help him elevate his game.
I think It will be kind of the same, um, process where? You know, they're gonna have to just keep on building around him.
You can you get I'm Matt in here.
Look, way only worked on the little people on the corner.
Does it not work with the phone? Because I think he's on his phone.
Oh, I'm not sure.
Our law here, uh, you can bring up the Browns.
Let me just you might spend were quickly bareback.
Yeah, no problem.
All right, So next is the Cleveland Browns.
Over Under is 8.
A lot of Browns fans out there.
This is a public team.
So, you know, this is a team.
A lot of a lot of people bet on Cleveland Brown.
So a lot of people bet on the over last year.
I think they're run around 9 8.
I think what they've done so far with, you know, adding stuff, fancy having an official football coach.
Actually, you know, they're making moves and chase that offense to be more PLASCHKE heavy, I think is a perfect set up for what's the fancy wants of you and what their personnel allows them to Dio.
I think this is one of the most talented rosters in the league.
And, um, A and 1/2 the over is paying dollar 87 the under areas paying a dollar 87 as well.
Playoffs for the browns.
Make the plastic the yes is paying $2 3 in the know is paying $1.73.
So I see that we finally have our third man on the screen.
Um, a coy thanks for having my sorry about the trouble.
No problem in, uh, it happens.
Yeah, I guess that the app doesn't have the coast on the bottom, so we got you now, so it's all a matter.
Um, Alex, what are your thoughts on the Browns? All right.
With the Browns, you know, they're entering a pivotal point in the Baker Mayfield era May.
If Mayfield in the offense can't show promise of consistency under some fancy, I think Baker's take time may be coming to an end.
Their running game has two great options with Nick Chubb incurring line.
You know, they have over Jay, who I think is gonna have a bounce back year in terms of being game changing player Jarvis Landry played very well this past season and getting their adding Austin Hooper to They're tight in death with David and joke.
So those are two interesting options in the passing game from the tight end position.
And defensively, they have playmakers like Myles Garrett, Mac Wilson.
They drafted safety Grant Delta, who could really thrive in the Cleveland defense, as it will allow him to kind of Rome the field and kind of be enforcer.
So all right, in regards to the over and under, I have their ceiling at eight wins.
So I'm gonna go with the under here about Humira.
Yeah, I'm right there with Alex.
I think it's a make or break year, and I feel like if o b J doesn't get two touchdowns within those 1st 2 weeks, and he's just gonna be out of there if he's not already so I think there anywhere from 6 to 8 wins, and that's about it.
So we have definitely under.
Okay, I think around there.
I haven't yet between a little.
If you said you're picking on the boy, it's all good.
I do think the Browns are the most improved team in the division.
They're absolutely stacked.
I think that one of the best rosters on paper, they added, You know positions of need This offseason, Mad offensive tackle was the weakest part of the roster.
They they signed right tackle Jack Conklin to three year, $42 million deal, and they picked up Jack Wills Junior and as the 10th pick of the draft, Um, you know the at Austin Hooper, they got, um, Hunter.
It's Hunter Bryant are Harrison Brian in the draft as well as tight end, and they got in Joke who? So they got three tight ends that can all ball out to split out very athletic Kim Block as well.
So I think, you know, in this play action, heavy system is exactly what they need to do.
Like for some reason last year, they just got away from the flashing past, just asking Baker Mayfield to do entirely too much gaming game out.
They need to rely on this run game.
Nick Chubb, Hunt.
I think those guys could be absolutely studs in this offense and then just throw off that so as far O b. J.
Landry, they'll figure that their stuff out.
Uh, um I mean, they're a team mates, Alice. You.
I mean, if they're winning, I don't think they're going to be people piping up too much.
But I think overall, this team looks very good on paper and I'm gonna lean.
I'm gonna take the over.
You know what? Screw up.
I like a defense.
I was going to take the over.
I don't think they're gonna be like, um, you know, world beaters or anything like that.
But I think going to be a top out with this run game, I think they go over the 8.
5, so I'll take the over $1.
87 I think that might make the playoffs as well.
I don't mind that either, that I hate being on the brown side and all.
That's what it looks like.
And yeah, I just think that overall that they've done on not on paper and addicts, the fancy changes, that whole dynamic of their whole team because they didn't have an actual real head coaching there last year, we can help me, has miles care have been reinstated officially yet.
So I mean, I don't know.
I mean, the one loss that they did have this off season that I thought, you know, could, you know, be a problem is no.
They lost a linebacker that toe.
Jacksonville Jaguars? I believe so.
So he was, you know, a pretty a pretty good linebacker for them, um, of generous, overpaid Forum.
But he was He was a reliable presence in the middle of that Brown's defense for a number of years.
So I think that's probably their weakest point on defense.
Is there Linebacking corps got 1/3 round draft pick, Jacob Phillips, Who's gonna have to step in and make you know, immediate contribution, but, um, other than that, I think they're pretty solid all the way around.
So you think that blasts air now? No.
No, because I don't know if I like making this enough on this podcast, but I'm on Drew lock bandwagon.
So I thought OK about you, man.
You think they don't make Klaus? I actually, Alex took the words out my mouth.
I'm a big fan of show boat.
We're gonna move on to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Uh, Big Steel is there.
Over under is nine.
In the overs pinioned dollar 87 the underpinning dollar 87 to make the playoffs.
Yes, is a dollar 71.
No, is $2 5 Alex, You know I want to save you, Alex, with Scott Mac.
We'll talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and what you think will happen to them this season.
All right, so this hurts me to say, but I think there's gonna be very good this year.
Ah, regardless of Ben, tell us or not, I think there are options between ah ah Mason Rudolph ins and free agents that they could sign over one they could trade for.
And, um, I think just the fact they almost made it to the playoffs last year with everything that happened, like everything went wrong for them on and they almost made it in.
I think easily the Ravens and Steelers will probably be the best in the division, so I definitely think they actually gonna go over to, so Yeah.
All right, Alex.
So this is my completely unbiased opinion through, sir, Big bands coming off a season ending elbow injury.
You know it's the last one.
Maybe 23 If if you if he gets, you know, follows the years left in his career.
I think Big Ben benefited from missing that time last season kind, given his whole body timeto to kind of get a break.
You know, in football, you know, you're never ever 100% healthy.
So, you know, getting all that time to kind of step away from the game, kind of take your time to get back into rhythm.
I think that's gonna bode well for him, for hopefully, you know, finishing the season, playing all the games.
You know you have James Connor, who I believe is going to stay healthy this year.
He showed promise two years ago.
He was really banged up this past year, but I think he's gonna bounce back this year.
Then we have juju who should bounce back.
A Statistics were very much significantly better with Ben Ross Burger under center, so I think we'll see.
His numbers can spike up a little bit this season.
I think Eric Ebron is gonna become one of Ben's favorite targets in the red zone.
I love Chase Claypool.
He's a very physical receiver.
I think big Ben's gonna definitely get a, uh, a liking to him, especially in the crucial third down.
So on offense, I think they're set for this season.
I think this is one of the better Steeler defense is that Ben's had in the last couple of years.
You know, we had the gym getting ah, Meghan Fitzpatrick last year from the Dolphins.
You know, Nelson and Hayden played very well with Fitzpatrick.
Kind of playing center field back there.
Kind of solidifying that secondary.
That was very questionable for a couple of years on.
Then, you know, we tag decrease in pre and TJ.
Why? I continue to wreak havoc.
I have them on make going over and making the playoffs.
How many Windy Victor? I haven't between, like, like, 10 or 11.
That's like I say 11 is like my ceiling.
So you think they're super cool, contender? Oh, yeah.
Yeah, that's fair, I guess.
Um, so, yeah, the Steelers.
Ah, lot of it depends on what Ben Roethlisberger has left.
I just I don't think anyone knows the answer to that at the moment he had a very serious surgery.
We'll see what it's times like when he comes back.
He looked like Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for a while, Um, beard, his judge general out of shape nous So we'll see what he comes back.
And when he looks like I'm not a huge James content fan, I think he's very pedestrian, Um, but they have kind of a mishmash group of guys that they confer up there and get some stuff done.
I think they're passing game is better.
They won't have to rely on those guys so much, which obviously showed last year which they can't do.
I don't think James Connors that finally kind of running back, um, so I think he's He's fine for what you need him to dio in, You know, um, or I guess I've been Roethlisberger type offense, but if you relying on him solely to kind of be the guy, I don't think he's that type of back, Uh, juju.
I'm just really nervous that he's not a number one receiver, so I think that you know, his season that he had within 20 around there is, you know, something that we've seen that weaken say? Yes, he can do that.
He's a good number two receiver, But can he be the absolute guy and ball out week in and week out, take the coverage away, take double teams and still win.
I'm not sure if he's that guy.
Um, it'll be interesting to see if he can step out with it.
I do like Chase Claypool.
I don't know how they're going to utilize him, but I think having another big body receiver um, you know, 64 was a big target.
I think that will help big bed, even if his arm is shot.
So you give him a little bit better.
Bigger targets out there other than your You know, Deontay Johnson's the guys like that.
So, um, losing Javon Hargrave waas a bit over like he was just overshadowed.
And I'm gonna utilized as a Steeler most of his career.
Um, he was a part of a loaded defensive front last year, but I think you know, I think you you would know as a as a fan of Steelers.
You you know, Javon Hargrave on what he was for that defense.
I think, um, it's a notable departure.
Um, I think we'll be do a great great job, Billy, but I think losing him, you know, could hurt a little bit.
But I do think they did sign some underrated guys.
Well, they got step on.
Ah, Was Minsky a guard who has no the last two stocks one Super Bowl them, I believe with eagles and teeth.
And they got him for very cheap.
So on adding Eric Ebron, like you said, gives them a little more athleticism and high definition, which is kind of fan.
Um uh, you know, a guy running five years down, the feeling turning around base, please.
But now the Heath Miller days, Um So Okay, as much as I think they can be improved like you said, I think he said, like, bounce back for, like, 18 different guys on that roster.
It just seems like you're asking a lot of these guys that we just don't know what we're gonna get from.
So I'm going to say under I'm gonna be the Pittsburgh Steeler hater.
I think it's telling because I have respect for talent just because, I mean, he dragged that team.
So where they got to last year, I think this division has gotten better.
And I think the Steelers kind of having so having this kind of just stayed the same.
Um, and I think that they probably win nine games are probably I'm more searching for a plush, but I'm gonna say under, um and I think, you know, it's gonna be probably time to move on from Ben Roethlisberger after this year.
Hey, I just know the moment the Steelers get their 10th win, I'm going to clip this and post already heart.
Of course I know, but I think way really got to start looking towards the future because, you know, I'm not really gonna get rid of Rudolph already or get off of him yet, But he didn't.
You didn't progress as he got more playing time.
So that will definitely be, Ah, a question.
Look at I was definitely one of those one of the minorities of the Steelers fans that were like, Hey, let's sign Can do, you know.
So that's kind of of somebody I wanted a have just in case Ben isn't able to finish the season.
We get a quarterback that can be flexible in this in this offense.
Yeah, that's fair.
Well, let's move on to a good team.
The Baltimore Ravens.
And you like way, way even a me being a pass fan.
Obviously, the Ravens.
I have tremendous respect for probably the only team that we, you know during the last 20 years off, you know, really thought about like, Oh, man, we got by the Ravens like that's the only team that would ever come up on the schedule that was actually even worried about, like, the Steelers.
Who we just Trump's every time.
So, um yes, Ravens.
You gotta stop tagging me in those in those Steelers Pittsburgh highlights, Man, the people who is a Patriot highlights the best.
Yeah, like I'm a huge with Mark Jackson.
Guy was on the bandwagon from day day one.
What he did last year was amazing and hoping that keeps it going.
The Baltimore Ravens over under is at 11.5.
The over is paying a dollar 98 the underpinning dollars 77.
So make the playoffs is only a Yes, he had another 13 that knows that $5. 40.
Uh, Alex, I'm a save, Mets announces of his team till after yours.
What are your thoughts on the Ravens this year? You're bitter, rival.
So before I get into it, you know, Corey has been a full time supporter of Lamar Jackson.
He cashed in on the on the over for Lamar Jackson's touchdowns last year with it touchdowns and rushing yards.
But what what was it? It was something insane, like 15 16 touchdowns was over under.
You smashed it, doubled it out pretty much.
All right, So Lamar Jackson's about a come back and show that this past season is a sign of things to come rather than just a fluke.
Mark Ingraham, J K.
You know that they're gonna be a great do running the ball along with Jackson.
Marquees breath the reason that he had a discomfort from a surgery Adams foot during the whole season and with him now not having the discomfort in Jack.
Excellent. Really working on his deep balls.
I definitely think marquees grounds.
Definitely going to be a heavily targeted on those play action passes.
The way he runs you know they have Ricky.
Devon Duvernay looks to kind of get someone in this season, But I think Miles Boykin is really going to surprise a lot of people this season, and it emerges.
A solid number two for this raid is passing game.
Uh, you know, the odds they have Mark Andrews can get anything better than that, but at consistency with Lamar Jackson.
Uh, defensively, this team has set top to bottom.
Patrick Queen, Uh, Patrick Queens rookie Campaign Could end in a defensive Rookie of the year award with all the town he has around him.
So I definitely have the over and them making the playoffs, Matt, you know, So I think I took from that was Alex was admitting that the Ravens will sweep the Steelers, and no, um, I'm gonna just go hot, take and say that the Ravens go 16 you know, and there's no reason to Is there a reason to question how they are gonna be better? I feel like their schedule and the n f l.
That just loves the attention of Lamar Jackson and this all of the attention that comes from him.
Like all the talk and the schedule.
They have so much.
It just seems like such an easy schedule.
It's unbelievable that they have it.
Um, and then I like they said that the weapons that they have around them in the defense, um I mean, I'm completely biased, but it's hard to hear, but But they like they look better than they on paper donated last year.
It's kind of surprising.
You don't think I don't see how you could do that, But just the way they drafted, I just did extra years together.
And, you know, Lamar, I did see a a question war.
Ah, I'm a scary stack was, like, 30 something percent.
30 of his passes, like around 36 of his passes were intercepted passes.
They just they weren't so it's kind of alarming.
Um, is it more that Ah, by store at ****ysis right there.
You know, just saying he another year.
Yeah, you get better.
You know, you didn't like you mentioned, uh, Brown.
And in just the defense that they still live.
So it's gonna be a fun season.
So the Ravens, I think, are just gonna be a road greater this year, literally and figuratively.
I think they have a stable of running backs.
Got trustees Helio of C J.
They got, um, they still have gusts there.
I know you hate that, because that's takes way from dramatise a little bit, but shut the bus.
Um um, you know, an Ingram.
I think there's gonna be running a crap, all the ball.
Um, I think they added, you know, some offensive linemen and draft.
I think that's gonna be the key.
Is this offense a line without Janda? Can they keep up that no sustainability in the run game can keep being road graders and just, you know, um, asking people up front defensively, I think they got better.
Um, from last year, I think.
Obviously, they you need a guy like Patrick Queen in that defense and then, you know, having him now impairing them with the guys that they've already had.
I think there's a little slight arm pass rushers just in general, but I don't think it's gonna matter much because they're often it's gonna be so potent.
Um, it's gonna just they just take so much time off the clock with the run game is just like, you know, the possessions that other team's gonna have are gonna be so vital.
You know that, you know, a three out is just gonna kill them.
So I think this team is all set in prime for, ah, Super Bowl run.
And I think they go over the 11.5.
I think that's easy.
I think that's I think they went 12 or 13 games in the overspending Dog 98 saying you almost fell your money there.
So it's critical value if you like the Ravens, which I do, Um, obviously you always have to worry about, you know, running quarterbacks and things like that.
Mark Jackson doing a pretty good job.
I don't think anyone can actually touch him, So I don't think you have to worry too much.
It's not like Robert Griffin type thing.
Um, so I do love Lamar Jackson this year.
I think, um I mean, we're gonna talk about M V P in a minute, but you gotta think about about him being EVP once again in this offense, and I think Bose receivers have are growing up with him on.
But there just to be better for it.
I think that's probably the area where they need to get better.
Um, this season I've seen the passing game and those receivers just being more, Um, I guess reliable is the right word, say, um, in tough situations.
So I don't know if they're gonna get tested much this season.
I think there's a few games on the schedule where they get tested.
That's about it.
So we probably won't find out what this team is all about until we get to the playoffs.
So but that being said, I still think they're gonna win 12 13 games.
So so, looking at the division, the NFC North Division of the Ravens Air paying a dollar 45 to win the division, the Steelers are paying $4.
33 of Brown's at $5.
50 and then Bangles at 23 to 1.
Any hope for any other team? The wind, that division.
I haven't even so.
Yeah, I definitely Ravens.
We're going to check in with both their come game.
That's Dollar 45.
That's that's easy.
Um, it's not great odds, but I think I think I agree with that.
I think the Ravens win this division.
I know you agree, Matt, right? Absolutely.
I kind of hope, actually struggle.
I gotta hope they struggle so that when I do get to the violence to your it's a little bit better.
Kind of like them to get tested more.
But, I mean, I think hopefully they're gonna learn from the past mistakes.
A big trust, woo even struggle.
I'm definitely gonna clip the They're gonna go 16 you know, pull down splitter.
Like an extreme take. Okay.
Like, I think, most likely gonna lose three days.
You were 13 3? I think so.
18 3 12 41 weird game.
All right, we're gonna get into M v P regularly for the regular season.
I'll just go through the odds.
I don't know if you guys have a mop.
But I do. So I'll go through them.
Um, NFL brother sees M e p Pat Mahomes.
$4. 50 Lamar Jackson seven.
Owen Wilson seven a one.
Crops got 13 yuan wins.
18 010 Bashar Watson 18 1 Drew Brees 18 on Tom Brady, 1901 and Rogers, 23 to 1.
23 to 1 May feel.
26th 1 River is no thanks, Roethlisberger.
I guess I'll do this for you.
Um Garoppolo? No, There goes cousins.
Ryan Stafford, McCaffrey.
A few Munnell on Henry Effort.
Do with one, um, Cyclone Barkley.
That 56 to 1 and then just gets ugly.
Your boy here locks at 67.
Elliot's at 67 1 It exists.
What if anything, popped out as far as faras favorites girl say the top Holmes, Jackson, Wilson, Prescott went And Watson Breeze what stands out there if anything? Yeah.
I mean, I had agreed.
Probably like Mahomes, Jackson And then maybe Prescott, depending on the season he has.
But everybody else is just kind of help when you're not a quarterback to win this.
I mean, if they're not gonna pay Derrick Henry like money, how are they gonna housing in the M V p of the league? That's that's one way to look at it.
I think he'd be carried.
He carried the musher, Then they give 10 health.
It's a massive contract like not saying towns.
Not good, but yeah, the quarterbacks will get paid.
It's just yet to be M V p these days, like you have to have at least 2000 your onrushing.
I just you know, that's gonna happen.
I mean, even the season that Michael Thomas had last year, like he I don't know how many NDP voids boats he got.
I don't think you got many.
He'd get Oppens Player of the Year, but for M v p, its quarterback or bust and a strategy for gambling, I think you just take a couple of these guys take two or three of, um, um, you know, put whatever your unit of Wager is on it, so I don't mind Lamar Jack's at 701 a pregnancy away from the homes that fourth for 50.
Just because you don't get enough return for me in these future bats, I kind of looked for longer. Add one.
Got at 13 1 We've talked about that.
We talked about that and see East Pod.
I think that offense is gonna be awesome.
Aaron Rodgers is interesting to me.
At 23 to 1, um I don't really love Aaron Rodgers, but I think this is kind of a f ew season for him.
Going back to that.
Having Jordan love there, I think he just coming tryingto burn the world down so I could see him having a really big season, Um, and then just longer shots wise.
I mean, I don't know.
I think I would be willing.
The only non quarterback I was kind of looking at would be like to stay calm.
Barkley, at 56 the one this is, I think he just gets the dominant share of that offense.
And he could maybe pull the Giants toe a place where no one really thought they would go.
But other than that, there's not a whole lot I like other than you know, those those top kind of quarterbacks.
I mean, the only way McCaffrey would even be in considerations if he has like a Shaun Alexander LaDainian Tomlinson kind of touchdown heavy year.
But I don't think any running back and this day and age is getting that kind of those guys have a better year than he had last year.
I can't see how you get better here than last year.
Yeah, my top three.
Pretty much what it is.
Mom's Jackson Prescott.
Everybody else is just like you.
Is there anything I would I would take Matt Ryan just because, like, it's the possibility with Ridley and Julio.
And like, girl, I think about good here.
Uh, he's kind. I was looking.
I think he sees Karna far down that he's out 41 1 Yes.
I mean, I don't mind at all.
I think like one Lamar Dacca pride my to, like within the top.
That would be there than matter.
I would be like a flyer.
Yeah, that's that's definitely affair.
Um no love for your man stadium.
No, man, not this year, you know? No.
Um, but he said no.
I don't know if we're going to the dark worship, but I would say Drew lock has chance.
There's no chance.
I think that their 1st 3 games air like hard, winnable games that if he can pull off, if they can have team success that he I mean his I could see him throwing 38 to like 40 touchdowns this year.
And how, I mean, if you factor in that, Okay, So his last five games, he threw seven touchdowns in the five games that you feel.
You okay, If you take that, you take this like, extrapolated over the based five. Whatever.
I factored, Kim.
It's like two and 1/4 something.
5 over the course of 16 games.
Like he could throw 38 to 40.
Okay, It is what it is, Officer.
So low that I'm saying like, yeah, you know, he's 67 1 so yeah.
And the And the thing was both the years that my home, I believe Mahomes one and Mark Jackson one. They were both.
They both opened at, like, 61 toe one and $55.
And the guy? Yeah, it's there.
I just did you lock.
But you're not a fan of young Jeezy, huh? I wonder was easy.
I just don't want todo the ambassador it is You need to believe I don't know if I could believe anything you say that were correct.
A drink pickers fan were in the I could see it that I could see that never Now I don t shirt and I was, like, interesting two things for you.
5 months to get on this train before it leaves without you.
And to honestly, man, I think Cory is a is a is a low key Ravens fan because in our mock drafts, he was always, like trying to grab the Ravens before anybody else.
I'm so upset that I had a trade from Archies Brown in the league and I didn't get a draft Him I, like, got in the morning to, But I want both those guys.
Yeah, I mean, I might I might be a little bit of ah, closet Ravens fan.
I just love I don't watch tomorrow, Jackson.
Every week. That's just fun.
I think it was like that first.
Ah, the first day of drafting.
I was like, I like this quarry. Gay.
Uh, Cory is hilarious in the Chapman.
Yeah, Yeah, very helping the chance to keep it.
Fine, man, that's for sure.
