actually, um, they're thinking moves and change that off tends to be more plaques.
And 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 $1.
87 the under various paying in dollars 87 as well.
Playoffs for the Browns. Makeup last.
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.
Goi, these rather sorry about the trouble.
Your problem in, uh, it happens.
Yeah, I guess that the app doesn't have the coast on the bottom, So Allah car.
Oh, we got you now.
So it's all a matter.
Um, Alice, 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 show promise of consistency under some fancy, I think Baker's take time may be coming to an end uh, the running game has two great options with Nick.
You know they have a BJ who I think is it have a bounce back year in terms of being game changing player drivers.
Landry played very well this past season and getting their adding Austin Hooper to their tight end death with David and Joe Come.
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, says 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, he's gonna be out of there if he's not already.
So I think there anyone from 68 wins, and that's about it, So yeah, definitely under hmm.
Okay, I think your brother all right? Yeah, The over.
Between a little.
If you send your picture, well, 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 they had 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.
You know, the at Austin Hooper That got 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 Jim 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 play action passing, asking Baker Mayfield to do entirely too much, um, gaming.
They need to rely on this run game.
I think those guys could be absolutely studs in this offense and then just throw off that.
So as far in O B. J.
Landry, they'll figure that their stuff, huh? Umm 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 lead.
I'm gonna take the over.
You know what? Screw up like a pen defense.
I was going to take the over.
I don't think they're going to be like, um, you know, world leaders 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 about 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 a natural real head coach in the last year, which, in helping has miles care have been reinstated officially yet? Okay.
Yeah, 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, pretty pretty good linebacker for them.
Um, of generous.
Overpaid for him.
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 stop 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 class or No, no, no, I don't because I don't know fight by making this enough on this podcast.
But I'm on Drew lock bandwagon.
So Okay about you, man.
You think they don't make class.
I actually, Alex took the words in my mouth.
The drew long come a big panic. Sure.
All right, we're gonna move on to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The steel is there.
Over under is nine.
In the over his opinion.
The underpinning dollar 87 to make the playoffs.
Yes, is a dog 71.
No, is $2 5 Alex, You know I want to save you.
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.
Uh, regardless of ban, tell us or not, I think they'll options between, uh ah Mason rude offense 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 before I would be the best in the division.
So I definitely think they actually gonna go over to, so Yeah.
All right, Alex.
All right, 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 you if he gets, you know, all of 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, Steve, you know, still don't 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 Roethlisberger 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 very physical receiver.
I think Big Ben's gonna 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 suited 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 playing 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? I haven't between, like, like, 10 or 11.
That's like I say 11 is like my ceiling.
So you think they're a Super Bowl 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 sounds like when he comes back.
He looked like Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer For a while, Um, beard, um, 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.
But they have kind of a mishmash group of gods that they can throw 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 unholy kind of running back, um, so I think he's He's fine for what you need him to dio.
I mean, you know more.
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 with its running around there is, you know, something that we've seen that we can say.
Yes, he can do that.
He's a good number two receiver.
But can he be the absolute guy in ball out, week in, week out, Take the coverage away, take double teams and still win.
I'm not sure if you're that guy.
Um, it'll be interesting to see if he can step out with Big Ben there.
I do like Chase Claypool.
I don't know how they're gonna utilize him, but I think having another big body receiver, you know, 64 was big target.
I think that will help big bed, even if his arm is shop.
So you give him a little bit better.
Bigger targets out there other than your You know, Deontay Johnson's 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 parent, Steelers you you know Javon Hargrave on what he was for that defense.
I think, um, it's a notable about departure.
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 few boxes? One Super Bowl them, I believe with eagles and teeth.
And they got him very cheap.
85 million on adding Eric Ebron, like you said, gives them a little more athleticism in high definition, which is I understand.
Um uh, you know, a guy running progress down the feeling turning around these 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.
Um, I think it's talent 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 I haven't so having this kind of just stayed the same on, 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, don't just know.
The moment the Steelers get their 10th win, I'm going to clip this and post already part.
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 planning.
So that will definitely be, uh, a question.
Look at I was definitely one of those one of the minorities of the Steelers fans that were like a let's sign can do you know, so that's kind of of somebody I wanted to 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? Yes.
Well, let's move on to a good team.
The Baltimore Ravens.
Hell is 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, that off, you know, really about 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 trust every time.
So, um yes, Ravens.
You gotta stop tagging me in those in those Steelers Pittsburgh highlights, Man, the people who is the patron highlights.
They're the best.
Like I'm a huge with Mark Jackson.
Guy was on the band with him 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 of dollars.
77 to make the playoffs is only it.
Yes, you have a dollar 13 that knows that.
40 us I'm a save, Mats announces of his team.
So 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 smash.
It doubled it out pretty much.
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. Dobbins.
You know that they're gonna be a great do running the ball along with Jackson, Uh, marquees Barack The reason that he had discomfort from a surgery Adams foot during the whole season.
And with him now not having the discomfort inject excellent, really working on his deep balls, I definitely think marquees grounds definitely gonna 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 Ravens passing game.
Uh, you know, the odds we 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 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 to you.
So 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 a TV 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 than they did 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 was the after years together.
And, you know, Lamar, I did see a a question war.
Ah, a scary stack was, like 30 something percent.
30 of his passes, like around 36 of his passes, were imperceptible passes, babies.
They weren't so it's kind of alarming.
Um, he said more that Ah, by store at ****ysis.
Right there? Uh, no.
Just saying he know your Yeah, you get better.
You know, you'd like you mentioned, uh, Brown.
It's hell healthy.
And in just the defense that they still live.
So it's gonna be a fun season.
So the Ravens, I think we're just gonna be a road greater this year.
Um, literally and figuratively.
I think they have a stable of running backs.
Got just He's held of C J K. Dobbins.
They got They still have gust there, Gus. The bus.
I know you hate that, because that's takes away from dramatise a little bit, but shut the bus.
Um um, you know, an Ingram.
I think there's gonna be running the crap out of all.
Um, I think they added, you know, some offence, alignment 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 coming.
Keep being road graders.
And just, you know, I'm 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 have already had.
I think there's a little slight on pass rushers just in general, but I don't think it's gonna matter much because their offense could be so potent on it's gonna just it's 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 going to win 12 or 13 games in the overspending dog 98.
They knew almost double your money there.
So pretty good value on if you like the Ravens, which I do, Um, obviously you always have to worry about, you know, running quarterbacks, 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 box.
You gotta think about about him being EVP once again in this offense.
And I think Bose receivers have growing up with him on and there just to be better for it.
I think that's probably the area where they need to get better.
Um, this season, obviously in the passing game and those receivers just being more, Um, I guess reliable is the right word, say, 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 looking at the division, the NFC North Division odd the Ravens air paying a dollar 45 to win a 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 window division? No, I haven't even so.
Yeah, I definitely the Ravens are gonna dipping with both taken game.
That's Dollar 45.
That's that's easy.
Um, it's not great odds, but I think I didn't 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 what I do to get the look, my own studio, 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.
They're gonna go 16 you know, pull down. Splinter.
Like an extreme take Okugo gonna find, like, I think, most likely gonna lose three.
You were 13 3 So 83 12 41 weird game.
All right, We're going to get into UNDP regularly for the regular season.
I'll just go through the odds.
I don't know if you guys have a mop.
Probably don't, But I do.
So I'll go through them.
Um, NFL really sees MPP.
50 Lamar Jackson seven.
Owen Wilson seven.
Alon Crops got 13 yuan wins.
18 010 to start Watson 18 1 Drew Brees 18 on Tom Brady, 1901 And Rogers, 23 to 1 column early.
23 to 1 may feel.
Yuck! 26th 1 River is no thanks, Roethlisberger.
I guess I'll do this for you. 36 to 1.
Um, Garoppolo No goes cousins.
Staffer McCaffrey at 50 Monday one.
Do you want a one? Um, Cyclone Barkley that 56 to 1 and then just gets ugly.
Your boy here locks at 67. A one.
Elliot's at 57 1 It exists.
What, if anything, plopped out as far as faras favorites girl say the top Holmes, Jackson, Wilson, Prescott Wentz and Watson Breeze.
What stands out there if anything? Yeah, I mean, I'd agree if I have you like Mahomes, Jackson and then maybe Prescott, depending on the season he have.
But everybody else is this kind of stuff when you're not quarterback to win this elderly.
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 mushier than they give Tannehill's massive contract.
Like not saying towns not good, but yeah, the quarterbacks will get paid.
It's just yet, so to be M V p these days, like you have to have at least 2000 yards rushing.
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 boards boats he got.
I don't think you got many.
He'd get Oppens Player of the Year, but for N 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 bargain.
Stay away from the homes at 44 50.
Just because you don't get enough turn for me in these future bats, I kind of look for longer out of one.
So, like professed Got at 13 1 who talked about that? We talked about that Nancy East pod.
Um, I think that offense could be awesome.
Aaron Rodgers is interesting to me.
At 23 to 1, um, I don't really love and Rogers.
But I think this is kind of a f ew season for him.
Going back to that, having your love there.
I think he's just coming tryto 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 stay calm, Barkley at 56 the one that 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 being considerations if he has like a Shaun Alexander LaDainian Tomlinson kind of touchdown every year.
But I don't think any running back and this day and age is getting that.
Can those guys have a better year than he had last year? I really am.
I can't see how you get everybody here than last year.
Yeah, my top three or 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 really And Julio, I like a girl.
I think going good here.
Uh, he's kind. I was looking.
I think he speaks. Cardiff are down.
He's off 41 to 1.
Yes. I mean, I don't mind.
I think like Lamar Dacca Pride my to, like, within the top.
That would be there than matter.
I would be a good flyer.
Yeah, that's that's definitely fair.
Um, look for your man stadium.
No, man, not this year, you know? No.
Stood on M v P. Love right now.
Um, but he said no.
Terry, kill 126 to 1.
I didn't know we're going to the dark.
Worship how? It's a drew lock.
I think deck 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'm manufacturing that.
Okay, So his last five games, he threw seven touchdowns in the five games that you played. Yeah.
Okay, if you take that, you take this like, extrapolated over the based five.
What I effectively, I came to, 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.
All there is so low that I'm saying like, yeah, so he's 67 1 so yeah.
And the thing was both the years that my home, I believe, moans one and Mark Jackson one. They were both.
They both opened at, like, 61 toe one and $55 like that? Yeah, it's there.
I just did you lock.
But you're not a fan of Young Jeezy, huh? I want guns easy.
I just don't want todo three Ambassador it is You need to believe I don't know if I could believe anything you say you were correct.
A drink pickers fan were in the I could see it that they could see that never Now.
Okay, I T shirt and I was, like, Interesting Two things for you.
5 months to get on this train before a week without you.
And to see my I think Cory 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 said 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.
