money and a lot of weak ones in general anyway.
But especially this one when there's just not that much to go off of.
To be completely honest, I mean, there's a lot of unknown.
I think these books, they're going to really struggle.
I've seen a lot of people move their picks to over bets where they were probably more hesitant to do over bets before, after watching that Thursday night game, and I would just say I would expect a lot more teams to look like the Texans than the Chiefs.
Uh, there's going to be a lot of offenses that as soon as they get off their script, they're going to really, really struggle.
I mean, the 1st 10 plays typically are scheduled out.
They have them already written down.
They've practiced through them 50 times this week.
I can promise you they're going to be ran pretty well, and we saw the same thing with the Texans.
They drove right down the field.
This court, you'll see that a lot this week and then as soon as they get off a lot of coaches, they're going to look like Bill O Brien and they're going to suck and penalties.
We're going to fly a lot more than they did on Thursday night.
It was a prime time game.
Refs let them slide.
We've been waiting for football for so long.
Rests weren't going toe, you know, through every little flag.
So I would be a lot that touchdown e I saw it was rough.
The rest went up to the They had no pre season, so they had no preseason.
They also came in with a narrative like they for sure.
We're told to, you know, hold it back a little bit.
Let's not control the game.
The last thing we want is toe, you know, Primetime week, one Super Bowl champions they're playing.
We don't want to be the thing that's trending on the real conversation that was had.
And that's not going to be the same for every game.
I'll just say that anything else about this Raiders Panthers before we head to the A F C East? Yeah.
What do you guys think about Panthers over 10.
5 in the first half? Almost like that? Yeah, minus 10 5/10 and a half.
I think that's a great, but yeah, I think that goes back to the whole game script to I think that's a good bet I've been here for that.
To Zach, you just mentioned scripted plays.
You would figure one of a good drive could come early.
And then, if you just need one more touchdown and two field goals the rest of the way, very possible.
E Like it, especially when you compare Thio mean the Raiders air at 12.
5 in the first half, and it's a minus 1 20 to pay out.
So if you're you know, if you're debating between these two, and if you think the game is going to go over in the long run anyways, I think over 10.
5, I also want to be surprised to see the Panthers leading going into the half.
I think the Raiders really hit their stride when Jacobs can wear the defense down over the course of the full game in the fourth quarter is when he's really going to shine.
So we're talking about the, you know, high acting, spread the defense out, throw the ball around offense of the Panthers.
I feel like they're going to be ahead early in the game.
More so than John Group.
Those titans being Jason went in.
I think they may start out a little bit slower.
Let's go to New York Jets versus the Buffalo Bills lying right now.
It's 6.5 a piece.
You can take a guess.
Which team is favored.
Let's find 77 77% of the bachelor on the bill's 80% of the money, that is, That's rough.
Like I said, this normally would be a no brainer.
Decide with a jet spread.
And maybe it is. Maybe you guys think so.
Henry, your Jets fan.
Are you siding with the Jets? Spread Here I am, but it needs to move a half point.
I want a full touchdown here.
I'm gonna calf out and say, I need a full touchdown.
But just the swaths of public money that have been coming in on the bills and I get a buffalo.
He's a good team, but this is Week one.
There was no preseason.
Once again, we're bringing that into the discussion here, and this offense doesn't put up a lot of points.
You got a total over under.
I think it's hovering around 39 a half.
Um, at most shops right now.
And then you've got a 6.
So if that gets bumped up to seven, is buffalo gonna be able to break away from the Jets? We saw a week one last year.
The judge should have won that game and gave it away late.
Uh, on and you know, granted, I think Week 17 they played in Buffalo, had a lot of backups in, and the Jets wanted close one, but its division rivalry game.
When in doubt, I think divisional games are one where you wanna look at the dog where there is any kind of significant spread and also significant public money going to the favorite.
I'm interested to see what the Jets draw.
I think from maybe some sharper players here is we get close to kickoff should the line move at all.
Um, I know a few people that I've listen to and such here this week aren't taking a stance on the game because of the offensive line scenarios on both sides, and that is a valid concern, especially here for the Jets.
You know, we completely redid our offensive line this offseason.
You've got a lot of guys coming together here for the first game wraps against what is a very good Bills defense, by far the strength of that team.
I've been saying it all off season, and I'm not gonna back off it yet.
I don't believe talent wise.
The Jets are as far behind Buffalo in New England's and is both the lines and public perception would have them made out to be.
I know Sam Donald is still a question mark, but it was Josh Allen, and so is the Q B situation in New England, which will get Thio when when you get that game, I think it's just gonna come down to coaching.
And also, you know, you have a lot of new parts on the line and some shuffling defensively.
Mosley is gonna hurt that defense, too, so But if I am playing this game, uh, the total, I think, is a solid number.
It's not what I want to hit a 39.
5, but using that Teoh kind of look at how I would be reading the points where it will be a bet on the Jets.
But I I really want to see it get to seven before I hop in there.
Well and most, most of those points are very valid, and they're things that I usually listen to pay attention to public money, obviously 80%.
That's something you typically want to avoid.
In this scenario.
I don't really care. I like the 6.5.
Give me the Bills.
I think the Bills offense is, you know, miles better than the Jets defense Right now, I think Sam Donald is inclined to turnovers.
And, as you mentioned, Bills defense is that strong suit of their strong of their team.
So I think they could create a few turnovers, give their offensive few more opportunities to score points.
5 in this game without worrying.
Yeah, I will say, Henry, you brought up coaching and I think that could be huge in this game.
This Jets defense on paper is really, really, really, really bad.
But I think Greg Williams is a mastermind.
I think he is unbelievable.
A disguising defense's in, no matter who he has out there playing for him.
They're going to play really, really fast, and I think that causes Josh Allen problems, and I think it would cause any quarterback problems in Week one without a preseason.
That makes me a little bit hesitant on this line.
I think this could be a sinner.
Maybe Josh Allen throws a pick, and you know, Twitter jumps on that as well.
I think Bill's win this game, but more I look at it.
It just seems like a spread I don't need to take.
The bills were also much better on roads last year.
I don't know what to put into that just because their home atmosphere is really so good.
I don't know why they were so, so terrible at home, but I don't know, maybe this is just another week, one where the Jets look competent and then they take a Dumpster dive, You know, later on.
But I might side with the dog.
That extra point, I'll never know broken it in.
I mean, to your point, though, I think the coaching issues definitely are that head coach and offensively, Greg Williams, like you said, he's gonna have everyone playing hard.
Um, and you're gonna own.
He's on guys left and right to you.
Can't forget about that.
Um, it's week 12 and I don't know how much you want to read into narratives coming out of the team.
You know, guys, they're saying in such, but everything I've seen following the Jets just that little bit closer than I do.
I think other teams, because of their place in my heart, is that the locker room is ah, whole feels disrespected.
Um, but, you know, just having them languishing at the bottom.
I don't know that I'm ready to say that they're one of the bottom 54 or five teams in the league this year.
So if that comes to fruition on the field on Sunday, there could be a a lot of people who are surprised for sure.
I don't know that it'll about to anything over the course of the season.
I'm not going to sit here and say my Jets are a Super Bowl contender this year.
I'm just saying, I think relative Jake vouch for his team.
Well, unfortunately, Adam Gaze is not my uncle like Mike McCarthy is jakes.
Otherwise, I'll be sitting here like this the whole show.
So, uh, yeah, the Jets are not a Super Bowl contender, but I think they're a little bit better than some people, uh, want to give them credit for whether it shows up on the field or not.
It remains to be seen, but I think if there's a week where they could surprise, it's gotta be weak one, right? I just like the bill.
I just like the bills in this spot.
I like them better as a team and going to be they're gonna, um, perform a little better than I mean, they're gonna perform better than the Jets all around, But I think they're gonna perform better on the offensive side of the ball right away than other people might expect.
Speaking of coaches, though, I believe last week, at some point when we were talking about the Bills, I called, uh, their head coach, Doug McDermott.
It is, in fact, Sean McDermott.
I popped into my head at some point here, so I wanna make that correction.
I do know his name.
This isn't a profit that's offered anywhere that I know but this is one I'm going to post to you guys, and it's it's honestly serious.
And oh, swamp on that.
I would love to bet on which.
Yeah, we can't hear you.
It's getting your I'm trying to figure out what questions e suspense like you can hear me out.
I'm a *******. Okay.
Yeah, I'm here. I'm here.
Okay, back to my question.
Who do you think is going to be the leading rusher in this game? Is it going to be Singletary, Zach Moss, Frank Or or leave Ian Bell or Josh Allen? Mhm.
Well, wolf Henry start.
I'm Well, I already know where you are on this.
Um, so to not go the same way you're gonna go.
I'm gonna go with Singletary because I think, you know, we've already talked about the rookie narrative with Jonathan Taylor and such a week warrant easing them into a different game.
Singletary is gonna get more carries this week.
I think it's gonna be ultimately a very close time.
Shared as this season moves along.
Maybe even Zach Moss sees a fume or carries Singletary shifts in the, uh, passing down work role a bit more, but I'm gonna go with Devin Singletary.
Uh, in theory, the bill should have a lead in the second half of this game.
I just said that.
I think the Jets could surprise, but this Buffalo team wants to run the football, too.
I think that can volume of carries potentially trying Grandpa in the second half on what could be a tight game.
I'm gonna go single theory here.
Yeah, I would agree.
Um I mean, Lady in Bell could, you know, he could always exploded.
There's always that possibility, but hey, started off.
Started off slow last year.
Uh, I don't know what he's gonna look like.
This here obviously could come out of 100 yard game, and nobody would be surprised.
But I think as as you mentioned, Henry, I think Singletary gets the bulk of the action, and I think he might be able to find some holes in this, uh, Jets defense.
Well, throw the bomb or targets spread out.
You got Brown and Beasley.
And of course, the fund digs.
Now you've got a backs, you can catch the ball.
So I think we might see him run a slight bit less this year.
I think we for sure we'll see Josh Allen run less in this game.
I think Gregg Williams is going to bring pressure off the edge and force him to be a pastor and beat them with his arm.
I mean, this is such an obvious pick.
I think Frank Gore is going to run all over this Bills team.
He said this offseason he could have ran for 1000 yards last year if the Bills gave him the **** ball and I believe it.
He ran for in 66 attempts, not the greatest per per carry average.
But my view is mostly on short yardage situations.
I truly believe he's going to leave this game from in Russia, and I think it's between the two Jets guys.
But I do think it's going to be frank or and I think he may get more touches and lady on Beth just because Adam gays and just because he is the guy 37 years old, he's playing until he's at least 40.
When his son is validate me because it's that's my prediction.
I mean I'm all for it.
I love every bit of it.
I don't know how.
I don't know if he can't touch Levy on one, though.
Given all the friction between gays and Bell, that's all these and and how they like supposedly butting heads and they're trying to say they're not butting heads.
That has got to get his share of the work, doesn't he? Nah, nah, e it is Adam case, like you said, a za Jets fan.
Here I am at his mercies.
Eso this you talk.
I need to look up a drink or prop don the trading bloc.
Yeah, it could happen.
I'm not gonna could have, because if this season blows up in smoke alright for the Jets, he's the kind of guy where wow, not only would we be looking to move him from a team perspective, potentially require more picks and whatnot for the future.
Uh, but he's probably not gonna wanna be around.
Um, you know, the whole thing's a model Atoms in the Well, I personally I think that that was a big blow to lobby in Bell.
No, I can't say for sure.
It's not like I have spoken to the guy here about it personally, Um, you know, seeing some of the things that on Twitter and whatnot, loyalty.
And you gotta remember Adams was the guy who really pushed for love.
You on the sign with the Jets. Now he's gone.
I'm hoping we don't get to that point because that either one in 4015 but I'm not going to go outside of it.
It could happen.
Well, the other interesting thing, too, is I think more teams would be interested in Bell now.
And they were two years ago because that contract that he worked so hard to get and held out and ended up costing himself money and longer on anyways, now is actually kind of looking like a favorable contract.
We saw two more running basket signed today.
Of course, you know Zeke and other guys that big time money, too.
So all of a sudden you start looking at Le'veon Bell.
He's not even that, like that far overpaid.
He's actually a pretty good deal right now, which is crazy compared to how people were talking about him in this contract that he wanted just to two seasons ago.
So I think it's a great point.
Yeah, so I think if they were to try and trade from, they could actually get something back because it's a fable contract now and he's obviously a player who still got it is just, you know, so far it's been a bad situation with the Jets he hasn't got.
He had brought, like his full abilities to Jets and the Jet haven't forced his full abilities out of him.
So I think, you know, it could be if the season goes awry, it could be a good deal on both sides.
Send him from elsewhere because you could actually get some value back for him right now.
I think he has brought his ability.
I'm just gonna have this real quick.
I think he has brought his ability and his passion that hasn't been missing.
Last year, the problem was, the offensive line was bottom Tours three.
I think in the league, in both Iran, to me, in a lot of ways, that we still pulled off seven wins with an offensive line was that bad.
Now granted, probably out of bases coaching and scheming was not right either.
Um, but offensively.
So I don't think you could fully blame lie beyond for the struggles of last season.
And also, you got to remember, weeks one through 42 to 4.
Uh, there was no same Donald.
So combined in***bent quarterback play.
It was the offense was really all on him on DSO.
Hopefully some of those things, they're cleaned up and maybe we get Yeah, can all fit together.
Which year? Yeah.
I mean, you know, better than than he watched a lot more jets.
I'm the field that I have, but just, I guess from, like, the overview, I just think, um, if this isn't the year, they're gonna be mediocre.
If you're looking to get some value back like his, his record are not excusing our record.
His contract is nothing that teams are going to turn away from him because of anymore where just a few seasons ago people would be like, No, I can't trade for that contract now.
It's definitely it would be worth it, you know, whatever.
But the money they give him is not out of line, I guess, is what I'm saying actually came up with a pretty good deal at the time, and Frank or our Lady on Belt could thrive.
Or this year that's not talked about enough.
I think you leave back, Frank, or anyway, anytime.
Touchdown prop Frank or plus 5.
50 in this game.
Okay, lock it in.
Yeah, I like that.
I'm gonna lock it in, and then when it happens, I will thank you next week.
But if it doesn't happen Oh, okay.
I'll say that again, too.
And another matchup for the A F C.
East Miami Dolphins.
Go to Foxboro right now, pretty down the middle.
55% of the bets and 58% of the money on New England.
The line is seven.
Seven point underdogs are the Dolphins, Obviously.
Week one, darling.
Pretty much every year.
Breaking my heart, that's for sure.
Cam Newton is starting at quarterback for the Patriots.
Not a lot of pass catchers.
You wouldn't think that the Dolphins have the better receiving corps going into this game, but it's for sure true betting on this game.
I know a lot of people are choosing the Patriots as survivor, pool pick and to me that's dangerous, very dangerous.
I would feel more comfortable getting on this pick.
Yes, the Patriots were traveling Thio Miami.
Now I know that.
You think that the reason they struggled so much down there was because of Tom Brady and his little hands.
So now that it's not around anymore, maybe they won't struggle so much done in South Beach.
However, up in Gillette Stadium, the don't have one.
What, two games in the last 20 years? If that they just don't play what pile up there, Patriots are going to come ready to play.
Bilbo might see very original, very dynamic ways.
All right, excuse. Very original.
Unsuspected ways is what I'm looking forward to use.
I don't think he's gonna go out there, swing the ball around and have a typical great quarterback game.
But I think he is goingto be for the statute in many different types of categories.
Maybe even a short, ah, short run.
Put it in the end zone with his legs.
I don't know, though, how how much they want to expose them to hits early on.
Maybe he's like he's I haven't been hit in so long My body feels great.
Like, let me take you some contact.
Obviously that Z inside conversations between him and Belichick, but, um, Stolley because it is in Gillette.
I don't like the golf.
It's a gummy bear and divided state park.
I think when these two teams get together, there's a distinct home field advantage.
If you look at the past seasons, Miami seems that going with number all the time in South Beach.
And then you come here and there are issues.
Although there was weeks.
17 how you play on this game.
James White over 31 a half receiving yards.
Put that out right there.
I don't know who to trust your among these Patriots receivers other than Julian Edelman? Uh huh.
In all four of these teams had our believe in the top five or six in strength.
I'm one who thinks the NFC West to deepest divisions in football.
All right, e think NFC is certainly a f c.
Maybe a little more about your little some of those, uh, other divisions, but it's gonna be a college for all four of these teams.
Yeah, it's definitely a good call.
Dolphins and Patriots game.
I just look back through.
Since the year 2000, the Dolphins have only one in Gillette.
Two of those times they went 11 and five.
So they were actually a legitimate good team.
Um, two out of those four times as well, They were being coached by Nick Saban.
And then obviously last year that that crazy week 17 game that went down with Fitzpatrick.
But before that, they hadn't won in sweat for eight years, and then before that, they were actually legit.
Good, good team.
So four years or four times in 20 years, I don't really like those odds.
No matter who's playing quarterback for the New England Patriots, that's fair.
Dolphins may need a little fits magic to win that one and knowing his week one track record, they make it it.
Let's talk about a game Jake and I are familiar with.
We've been talking about it quite a bit.
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings Currently 58% of the bets 52% of the money is coming on the Packers.
We have the Packers as 2.
5 point underdogs.
I mean, yeah, I've been high.
The Packers spread are a month now, and ever since the Neil Hunter got put on IR earlier this week, I like it even more.
Apparently, people listen to the Stream, but before, because now the money is this is just has come down to It was at 1 25 5.
Now it's that plus 1 20.
Not a significant move, but a move.
The Packers are a better team.
This Minnesota Vikings team may be the most overrated team in the entire league, or not anywhere near as talented as they used to be.
They have no deep threat without Stefon Diggs, their players playing out of position, like Adam feeling they haven't fans.
Kyle Rudolph already came out this week and said that there's zero home field advantage because of it.
Defensively, they don't have everything.
Yeah, I mean, there to pass rushers from top pass rushers from last season or not.
There they traded foreign GAC way.
That's great, but that's one player.
They got rid of all of their cornerbacks.
So now we're talking, lack of a pass rush, a lot of corners playing their first snap in the NFL and Aaron Rodgers with speedy, huge receivers.
Good luck like it just makes no sense.
I don't care that the Packers right side of their offensive line sucks.
I don't care that the Packers cornerback suck a lot of Jaia Alexander.
This is going to be.
I think it's going to be low scoring.
But I think just watching the game, it could be very, very one sided.
It's also I'm inclined, Thio e think, See, Do you guys in this game, just like with the Jets and I feel like you guys are gonna be a lot more plugged into this, uh, than I am? I think when we look at both Green Bay and Minnesota, I'll just say this quickly.
Uh, from my perspective, I'm wondering both Yeah, by year's end this year, I don't know necessarily, I would say the Vikings have a greater shot to be viewed as overrated.
Thin the Packers.
I'm gonna say that, for sure, but not always.
To miss NFC North is wide open.
There's a lot of ways I could see this playing out I could come up with a scenario where any of the Fort Vision and so with that being said, this is a big game to come out and huge pick one up right off the bat here in Week one and a lot of changing parts, especially on that Minnesota defense that gives me pause.
Um, it's gonna have to be a big game from feeling in a big game from Dublin Cook, I think for Minnesota Thio hang with because they will probably give it up a lot of yards whether they can play bend.
But don't break football.
I'm not sure, but it remains to be seen, but I'll leave the floor.
You guys, I have to run and check something real quick, so I will be right back.
I mean, Zac's heard it before and on the streams.
You've heard it before, too.
But here's my piece on the Packers real quick.
This e like them a lot assed faras the offensive this week.
I like Erin Jones more than a lot of people.
I think he was only owned in, like, 6% by 6% of people. Something like that.
I loved a bunch of atoms against these, uh, questionable Vikings corners.
But overall, packers season.
Um uh, Henry just mentioned maybe they're a little bit overrated.
Um, I just don't see a scenario where a team who didn't lose anybody of significance also didn't add anybody of significance, but they didn't lose anything.
You don't go 13 and three, make the NFC championship one year and then go 88 for absolutely no reason the next year.
I just don't see it.
Uh, obviously better than that.
He's not gonna allow it to happen.
I think that would Flora proved that he can coach up there with maybe not the best of them yet, But, I mean, he's a solid NFL coach.
I just don't see a scenario where they come out and dropped six additional games compared to what they're even if you believe they over achieved last year.
If you think they were more of a 10 and 60 ID squatter 11 5, whatever, you might think they still won 13 games.
They managed to win 13 games.
I just don't see how they drop in additional six this year.
Um, their total wind total is at 8.
5 and I both, I think, agree, Uh, take the over on that one.
I put a large bet on the over.
I just don't see them is 500 squad, Even without adding anybody else significance again, you also did six games worse than they were, you know, six months ago.
That's very fair.
And, you know, starting the year off of the divisional game in a game that is always very, very competitive with the States, right by each other, obviously the border battle.
There's always a lot of Packer fans at the Viking Games, anyway.
But the Vikings play so well at home because their crowd, you see these elite defense is really get fueled by their crowd, and it's not going to happen.
So that's a huge disadvantage for the Vikings, on top of the weaknesses that they already have personnel wise.
I just I don't really see a scenario where the Vikings win this game.
I really don't just because sure, Delvin Cook could go off.
But unless they bring in an extra pass rusher and then get after cousins depending on the you know game script, the scenario on that down.
But there's just so many more things that Mike Penton conduce defensively on those Vikings offense this year.
It could be rough.
I'm very excited to watch it.
Yeah, I think the Onley position.
I mean, you could argue Delvin Cook versus Erin Jones.
I will listen to those arguments, but I think the Onley position that the Vikings have over the Packers right now is height end.
And how significant is Kyle? We're going to be.
How much is that? Could make or break your your ability to win a game most of the time.
Yeah, well, well, we'll see Tight end to them, but we're better.
I mean, the secondary is not great in the Packers, but right now, I think I would take them marginally over the secondary of Minnesota.
I would take Aaron Rodgers over her cousins.
I would take our running back duos Right now.
I do like Dalvin cook.
I got nothing against.
That's the guy, but I like Williams and Jones a lot like our receiving core.
I think Davante Adams is better than Adam better than Adam feeling when you're comparing the top you guys and I think our receiving core is deeper as well, especially if, um, ST Brown and Lazard and guys like that can step up and start to contribute a little bit on a consistent we basis.
Check the boxes across the board except for that tight end position.
One spot I would like, let him have the tight end.
Backers have been getting along with an elite tight end.
Sent Bubba Franks, John Michael J.
Michael Jermichael Finley.
You know, maybe, but his career was pretty short lived and he dropped.
He was that illegal tight end either Great routes, big body out there.
But he had he had his own problems as well.
So I think if you're giving up that one position and its the tight end and Kyle Rudolph is not projected to have himself that big of a year either, So I'm looking at the wide receiver cornerback matchup.
Right now It looks like, you know, the, uh, Houlton Hill for the Vikings against Davante Adams.
Obviously a ginormous mismatch for Adams, but physically they match up pretty close to each other, but it gets a lot worse than you go down the board here.
L'm Lizard in the slot has a seven inch advantage over my cues.
He's also faster than my cues.
Well, this canceling, two inch advantage over Cameron Dance Ler, who is a rookie.
They give dance lor the the He's going to be very, very grabby on the outside against the speedster like Valda scaling in his first game.
It's the 40 times a ridiculous dancer and a 464 because Valda scaling ran a 437 It's just he's gonna run right by him about action ever.
I could see a lot of flags in the same from the secondary for Minnesota.
I will say another position in that the Vikings have the advantage.
Uh, if we're just talking single safety, there are other. Safety is good, too.
I can't remember his name, Anthony Harris or something.
Something like that.
He's good, but Harrison Smith is a stud, but he can't be everywhere.
Unfortunately for them, Yeah, I could get a stereo.
Where? On the ball, a little bit.
Maybe chuck it up.
He gets held or it gets interfered with.
All of a sudden, the Packers were in the red zone when they stick one in the end zone.
They come out the next next series, try and launch one down the field and Mazar all of a sudden.
You know, all of a sudden there, up by 10 or 14 points or whatever, they put up these big chunk plays and the Vikings there, just relying on their heels.
They don't know what to do.
Be very possible situation early on in the game and there was stretch last year.
I think it was like eight games in a row where the Packers school that Matt LaFleur is very, very, very good at developing game scripts.
You could argue that very good once he gets off of it.
But I think the Packers go down, score right away.
And now the question is how involved in Dalvin Cook truly be when they play from behind and we will find out.
But I think that could be very much in play for this game.
That's enough about this game and no more Jake no more.
Jake E was gonna say, Henry, if you want to hear my reasoning, why, I don't think the factors they're gonna be our that overrated are gonna be just fine.
Well, it will be up on YouTube.
Everyone should realize everyone.
Put it on. Repeat.
Just blue pit all day tomorrow.
Don't watch football.
We'll be onstream early next week.
We'll tell you what happened in the football games.
No worries. There you go.
Well, let let's talk about Cleveland Browns going to Baltimore.
This is an interesting game.
72% of the best.
70% of the money's on the Baltimore Ravens.
We have the Ravens favored by seven points.
Is the best line you could get 7.
5, most everywhere else.
This Brown's second area.
What? I said you did move a full point.
Talked about this game.
Yeah, yeah, and I think it could swing the other direction tomorrow morning.
So if you do like the Ravens, I would lock that in now.
But we've seen Cleveland secondary get beat up the off season injured, but you know, the front seven is still pretty decent.
They still have miles coming back from smashing guy's head in with a helmet.
They recouped up their defense, you know, biggest weakness last year was the run defense.
We saw that exact match up begins Cleveland When Nick Chubb ran all over them and got the win, they said, Okay, fine, we will go get applies Campbell.
They drafted Patrick Queen, and now it's like, Okay, I don't really see a weakness on the They lost Marshal Yanda on the offensive line.
I think that's a huge loss, but it's one that they could make up for.
They also added another runner.
This is a tough one to call if Mark Jackson progresses as a as a passer and marquees Brown make steps forward like I think you can, I think this is going to be a blowout.
But I do believe the Browns around defense is very good, so we will see those two strengths go up against each other.
What's your guys thoughts on this game, though, It's tough, But again, I'm leading towards the Ravens.
I said this Ah, stream or two ago.
I mean, the Chiefs stepped right back into it like they didn't miss a beat. They look great.
I think that the Ravens have they are gonna have the ability to do the same new type of offense, new place style.
They're not dealing with any of that.
So I think they're just going to step and get the ball rolling right away.
Um, kind of maybe take it to the Browns.
I think the Browns have have a better chance of maybe beating them later on in the season if they can, you know, put them put themselves together.
We'll figure it out as a team.
And then maybe trying to steal it from the raves later on like we saw last year, even wasn't that late.
Um, I just don't think the Browns have all that much a chance here this week, cause I think the Ravens are just going to roll.
I'm on the other side, Jake.
I think I don't want it.
But if I had to play this game, I think I would, uh, look to do Cleveland.
And to Zac's point, with public money expected probably tomorrow, you can probably wait on that, um, that the line should go in.
The Ravens favor here from 7.
5 where it is that right now there's just a lot of things that I don't know that we can.
The Ravens offense.
I think we all know by now it's unique.
Compared do, um, just about every other NFL team out there.
And so that makes me wonder if a lot of their regular season success is predicated on NFL defense's having to put in that extra bit of work, uh, to really hone up on stopping the Lamar Jackson freight train like we saw last year, but we've seen it twice in the playoffs, where you know, win or go home situation.
Teams have stepped up and they've stopped Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense.
So to me last year, we can't we don't really know because it wasn't enough to Miami team that week. One.
The Baltimore just killed but knowing Cleveland went in here and beat Things team last year and then we wonder, with the whole off season to game plan divisional rivalry game, we've already talked about that narrative a little bit here.
Are they gonna be ready to hold his team and check on Diz? It all in week one marquees brown.
I think you can improve.
For sure that guy was too small and I'm excited to see that for him to take next steps as a pro and this running game.
We know it'll be fine this year, but Zach has already said this Cleveland run defense is also not too shabby.
So if I'm betting the game, I'm gonna wait, see where the sign goes, and I'm gonna get Cleveland the longest number I can, Um, and we're gonna roll with that other.
It's not a It's not a favorite place for me on the week, but I'm not convinced it's going to be as easy as it was last year for Baltimore, Week one, or perhaps even the whole season.
I think stats are and the defense will definitely be better.
But I don't know about this woman's offense all season long, just running over people like we've seen.
Unless Jackson shows me he's taking the next steps as a passer, because I think that's gonna have to happen, it's point.
But here's the thing for me.
I put absolutely zero.
I don't put any value on that loss against the Titans in the playoffs last year. I don't think that matters.
When they won 14 games in the regular season because we're playing in the regular season.
We're talking about the regular season, and the Titans were obviously a tough thing to figure out.
They, you know, they had a good game plan and it worked for them.
That was one game on, and it was last year again in the playoffs.
We're talking regular season regular season football here with again a new coach.
Um, you don't have a couple of your guys in the second well, receiving weapons in Jarvis Landry.
I mean, he's going to be there, but he's gonna be limited, which we already talked is a little bit limited, is going to be a little bit limited.
The Baltimore defense is, should be good.
They should be top notch.
They always are.
Baker Mayfield again, grown two turnovers.
We don't know if he's gonna come out in great Week one, whereas Lamar's just got to come out.
Do this thing be Lamar.
I think he's got you know, Mark Andrews is a nice safety blind, thank you.
You just go across the board.
I think everything's leaning Ravens and I don't think that they come out and really struggle too much with the Browns I think the Browns stumble a little bit right out of the gate here, maybe get better.
I think they will get better, actually, later on in the season.
5 right now for the Ravens.
I'm not scared of that line at all.
Ah, I just don't I can't take the Browns here spot I can't justify because of injuries because of new coaches because of 14.
These things are just screaming in Baltimore to me, I'm not, you know, kind of a rebuttal as you did my point about it being about the Browns.
Maybe having a better shot here in this game like a postseason came at slowing down this freight train offense.
Is that a daily Guan? So they had a whole offseason Rivera coming in.
When you're going week to week in the regular season, grind team defense is might not want to get up.
So learn how to stop like this, you know, completely different animal.
As Faras offense is concerned.
The coaching change.
I think we should all be in agreement that that's when they're gonna be a positive going from kitchens to Stefanski here, especially for offense.
Yeah, Baker Mayfield does have a sheriff turnover, but we've seen Jackson turn it over to um, and then, as far as I know, some of these Browns being limited Jarvis Landry, that's a concern.
I'll be curious to see what kind of role us and whoever has here early in the season, because I don't know that it's gonna be a Zbig as a lot of fancy.
But and then Nick Chubb.
I'm not worried about Nick Chubb being limited because you've got Kareem Hunt, who proved that he could be a lead back when he was in Kansas City.
So that's really a two headed monster there, out of the Cleveland back from if anything would be interesting to see if Cleveland looks to run the football again.
You're on this team, even with the upgrades and, you know, speed up the clock, shorten the game a little bit.
Keep the ball out of Jackson, saying that could be a winning formula if they are able to establish the ground game early.
I also think last year the in their loss to Cleveland like Cleveland played a good game well rounded game.
It was probably the best coach game of the year by Kitchen.
But Baltimore also look bad in that game.
They were just off.
They were off offensively.
They were just off the whole.
They helped the Browns Ah, lot by not playing their best football.
It's not like Browns came out playing notes to know their worst week of the year.
Besides, for their their their lost to the Titans.
And I do agree, you know, an entire off season, you know, a za new head coach.
You have the opportunity to beat um and extremely talented right his team start your season off Well, but on the other side of things, the Ravens have had a full year to prepare for the Browns as well, and you might not.
You might have a little bit more questions because and stuff like that, but it's like, uh, they have a They have a great coach.
They had all offseason to prepare as well, so I think that that's kind of a wash, especially if you're talking defense that I think the Baltimore defense is obviously better than the Browns defense right now.
So you're going to give the advantage to Baltimore defense and then I guess, um it comes down to offenses and how the offices they're gonna perform.
And I just quote Mawr.
I would come or Eggs and the Ravens basket offensively.
Right now, we want the pose.
An interesting question here, not saying that.
But are the Ravens this year the 2019 Rams where the Rams were dominant in the regular season, the he dominated the regular season last year and then get to the playoffs and then get completely shut down? Do teams figure out this ravensoffense and now they have the formula to stop him? Do you guys have any? Do you believe that could be the case at all? Or is it just no Rams offensive line was terrible last year.
Todd Gurley didn't have knees and Jared Goff is a terrible quarterback, all right.
Jared Goff was not a terrible quarterback doing what he did last year when it was all on him.
I think that says a lot, even with the turnovers, but that offensive line was terrible and I put most of the Rams regression on that line.
I think that's the case in Baltimore, but I do think regression is coming.
You're not gonna win 14 games back to back.
Are we really going to sit here and expect that you got two matchups with the Steelers team that I and really might not even go to Baltimore this year when we're bringing Pittsburgh into the equation here, at least in my eyes, So do I think they're going to go all the way back.
What were the Rams nine and seven? Probably not.
But I think there's gonna be a regret coming both in the win column, and I don't think the statistics are gonna be quite what they were last year.
Unless Jackson shows me he's a better passer and I got to see it early or yeah, that's been my outlook on it ever since the playoff loss, To be honest with, and I'm not gonna apple off it now, match up with the Steelers, I might be so confident. The Ravens.
I think the Steelers are much tougher matchup a better team, the Browns.
Overall, I just i e the Browns in position to stop the Ravens as long as the Ravens play a good game, play at their best again.
If the Ravens are helping the Browns by beating themselves by underperforming, then it's a totally different Hillary.
But if we get the Ravens squad that that we grew up, you know, 80% of their offensive abilities from last year, I think that's enough to beat the Browns by 7.5 points.
Um, I think this is going to be a very, very interesting week, one match up.
I think the first quarter is going to determine the risk that game.
I think if the Browns get down big early, I think they're done.
But if they could play a competitive first quarter, I think the game honestly could go either way.
Yeah, season long I There's no chance in my eyes that the Ravens put up the same type of numbers.
That's not to say they're going to be a bad team.
I think I have them down for 11 winds.
I think they have great stats.
I don't think their weapons are that great.
I think they I think they should sign Antonio Brown today and if they dio then their chance in the playoffs.
If not, I think they had a nice early out yet again.
Let's go to the NFC West, Arizona Lisa Desert to go to the smoke and fire field.
San Francisco on air quality is going to be an issue in this game.
Unfortunately, let's see the line here.
If 71% of the bats and 78% of the money coming on the Cardinals, believe it or not, we have the Cardinals as 6.
5 point underdogs.
So far, we have Deebo, Samuel put on IR out three games.
We have brain, I you limited with a hamstring injury.
So 40 Niners pass catchers very beat up.
Kevin Coleman said If the air quality stays the same, he's probably not going to play.
No, there's been no word on Arizona players saying this type of stuff.
Maybe it's because they're not there yet and had experience.
This is a tricky spot with an environment to touch.
What about you guys? Yeah, my article that I wrote here this week broke down this game.
I'm betting preview, and for me, it was the cardinals.
Um, believe it was up around 7.
5 when I wrote that in there.
Um, and you just look at going back here over the last several years on don't have the exact numbers in front, so I apologize.
Uh, go check that article out on foreign sports dot org's, um, this this rivalry been very close.
San Francisco won both games last year and before those two games, you have to go back to right and something ridiculous to I believe, like nine of the last 10 or 12 have all been within 12 points.
There was one like 40 point win for Arizona At one point in there, I think it was when they had Carson Palmer and, uh, San Francisco did not have anything.
Um, but it's been close.
Even last year is good. The 40 Niners were one.
It seems they struggled with those to get by in both games wasn't Cardinals.
And by 10 at home, it was like a late, uh, scooping sore or something like that.
I believe it was a three point game right down to late turnover.
So with all those things considered looking at the history, looking at the teams now, I don't know about the San Francisco offense we know now.
Devil Samuel is out.
Who's Jimmy Garage we're gonna throw to hear reliably.
Besides George Kittle, we also know the 40 Niners want to run the football and Arizona's defense.
Not great, but the offense.
Adding DeAndre Hopkins, There's a lot of things to be excited about, their for the Cardinals even going up against, uh, stout 40 Niners unit.
So for me, the place it was Arizona around the touchdown, but is that I just touched down with these ones out there if you are watching, are staying safe and making it through.
But that's concerning because we like, Did you say it was having Coleman, who's thinking about not playing? Yeah, so if somebody like that, you know, granted, he's not San Francisco's be back, but he's a contributor, and if so, how is that going toe affect this game? So I think the play for me, all things considered, I'm still gonna look at the Cardinals, given the Siri's history here and how I think the teams do match up.
Um, but proceed with caution, I guess, and trying to get as much intel as you can before kickoff.
Yeah, I know that hates the Cardinals, so you know, if he's on anything, he's on the 40 Niners.
So I will start with you, Henry.
Um, kind of like you said earlier.
I wish for half point here.
I wish it was a full touchdown.
I know I will take the 6.
5, though, if you're If you're yanking my leg, I think the under 48 is kind of kind of an interesting bet as well as you.
As you touched on beyond George Kittle.
How Who is, uh, Garoppolo gonna find who is.
You're gonna throw Thio.
Their lead back is out, or they might come out and have to figure out their identity.
Um Could be a low scoring, you know, a lot of punch.
Things like that air quality again Might might affect players abilities Thio recover their ability, Teoh. I don't know.
I really don't know how that effects if it's the or if it's even harder on your lungs.
You know, I'm really not quite sure, but I just don't think this is gonna be an offensively loaded game and 48.
Not a terribly low number, either.
I mean, you could comfortably, comfortably gives one team for four touchdowns even.
And then you've got 17 points of work with the other direction.
So I think I think the under might be a nice little play here.
Oh, and yeah, I hate the Cardinals.
I think they're not very good.
What? It may surprise you to know that I will.
Like if there's a week to play the Cardinals, it's Week one, where Kingsbury can double check with every single coach.
He knows that's a lot better than him.
You know, to double check his game plan because it's not.
He's not going to be the one doing this week, Um, they're going to look mawr on the same page than they will in other weeks.
We've seen running quarterbacks give this 40 Niners defense problems for whatever reason.
Then get to the edge and then force this zone, you know, to stretch and then teams confined teams.
They're not the Packers confined soft spots in the zone if they have receivers.
Obviously, Cardinals had plenty of receivers.
All they have to do is sit in the zone and Cardinals wanted Kyler.
Murray stays behind his offensive line for more than a whole second.
He's going to get tickled, so it's going to be a lot of catch sprint to the sideline.
Much like last year, I I think the Cardinals have a pretty decent chance toe upset the 40 Niners straight up.
I'm not going to bet the money line, but, yeah, they just 40 Niners don't have any weapons.
Oh, I don't know why they that's in the team.
I don't know why they didn't sign Antonio Brown at this point.
I don't know why they didn't say Mohammed, a new who's already played in Shiran system At this point, I don't know why they haven't Gabriel, but Emanuel Sanders go No idea.
When you look at the empty covered behind him, you got to get that guy resigned.
I heard, I guess.
Yeah, E heard this guy.
I'm excited about the future.
Sorry, I'm interrupting if you can play.
Yeah, I think he's an amazing talent, but let's get to the regular season and then let's see if you can walk in a straight line.
I guess because it hasn't been proven that he can stay healthy.
I think Jack McKinnon is very, very, very involved in this game by default.
Um, honestly, he's probably going to line up at wide receiver quite a bit because they have nobody else.
I think Kendrick born good d efs play to catch a touchdown.
Like there's nobody you can feel good about on this 49th offense outside of George Kittle.
I do love him for the FSO.
Even though defense will probably have, you know, six eyes on him.
It any point in the game? I don't think it matters am before prime time.
Oh, no. We got to pick.
Uh, I do kind of like this, but Philadelphia going to Washington money right now.
Gupta, 82% of the beds.
85% of the money on the Eagles.
You love to see it.
Eagles minus 5.5.
Okay, well, let's Let's start with this.
Eagles have lost their right guard, Brandon Brooks.
They lost their left tackle on our Dillard, a sign chasing Peters for a bag of beans.
And then now he needs to play left tackle.
So then they pay them more money.
They have Zach Ertz crying about not feeling wanted.
They have all right, have Jalen Reagor not 100% this Eagles team is a mess that Miles Sanders out now.
E What? I don't know why people like the Eagles this week.
You have Washington who have Chase Young and Monta sweat on each side of the line.
Good luck, Carson Wentz.
They have Landon Collins in the secondary.
Couple of good defensive backs.
Um, Kendall Fuller is back as a corner for their team, and this offense, I no means Are they good? And by no means do they have anybody outside of J. MacLaurin.
I think he's running back.
They're going to be a problem for the secret defense, though.
As receivers and this game, I like the under.
I like I don't love the Washington spread just because I think the Sean Jackson killed Sean Jackson.
I don't think anyone on the Eagles could do much in this game.
I I hope Dallas Goddard scores two touchdowns and Zach Ertz doesn't catch the football, though I will say that that prop that just for me.
Uh, the one thing I'm disappointed in is that uh uh odds air.
So I was just so short on the money line for Washington, you would think, probably because the Eagles air so beat up on, you know, questions, everything you just listed off.
But I mean only plus 2 10 on the money line.
That's shorter odds than the Browns have to beat the Ravens, which, you know, and also shorter odds than the Cardinals have to be the, uh, the 40 Niners.
It just doesn't make much sense to me.
Um, unless you really believe that the Eagles are hurting a lot even more than than there than there shine, I think plus 2 10 is I don't know if it was 3 10 there's a little bit longer I might throw some money the money line.
But I just don't think I think the Eagles definitely not gonna dominate this game, maybe, and to 10 is just isn't enough to intrigue me to throw money at the Washington money line.
The over under is Yeah, that's glow.
I'm still thinking the under because we already have talked about all the offensive concerns the Eagles have.
I'm not sure Washington has much of an offense, although I think J D McKissic might just absolutely show out in this game as they try and, you know, kind of Charlie, Chuck down their way into it once they realized they can't run the football against this Eagles front.
Um, but the Washington defense we're talking about how holds defense is underrated.
This Washington defense of their underrated This defense has got top 12%.
If you look at it from my, uh, one of you, maybe even top 10.
I don't know how high I want to call me.
Is that Is that bold enough? Um, but at the talent point of view, number is just because of how bad their offense is, you know, that could go either way.
Yeah, absolutely a lot of extra possessions.
I mean, their office isn't gonna be able to stay on the field.
And if you include turnovers and things like that, So their numbers, they're gonna be skewed defensively, you know, simply because of I mean, how many times do we see What? What? Did they score? One touchdown in four weeks last year during that string where they were starting case Keenum on and off.
And then Haskins and whatever.
And it's like they could hardly across the 50 but along, getting the ends up.
And obviously Washington has a lot going on off the field here with this franchise and offseason.
How much of that really beans over in the play on the field? I'm not too sure.
But one thing that would will bleed over is hiring Ron Rivera, who? You know, I personally I'm a fan of riverboat round.
So I think just having that new energy, Dwayne Haskins He's still got a long way to go.
But he has won the starting job.
We'll see how long he holds on to it.
Some point wink wink.
But yeah, under for me on total in this game.
And if I'm betting thread, it's kind of Washington.
And if I'm confident Washington is gonna win outright Aiken one up the money line and look maybe within a 106 point margin, that's plus 3 98 draftkings because if Washington does win out right, it's gonna be a lot scoring close affair.
Um, so you know one thing I would think that would be a pretty decent ranged to kind of shoot a Washington money line bet and get a little bit better odds while you're at it.
But the under I love because I don't see points coming from either side here.
Fast and furious whatsoever would be a good way. I like that a lot.
I mean, it's significantly better payout than to than the to 10 Moneyline's.
Are you able to bet at points better where you are? Me? I am not points, but it is New Jersey and Iowa and I think that's it.
New York is New York's weird.
If I don't, If I don't walk into a casino and physically stand there, I can't bet.
Okay, But I will have those draftkings odds tomorrow because I'm planning on traveling.
So e was it? I'm glad that it's only a few hours for me because they allow everything they're like, You know, all we got corn fields that that many people we gotta find a way to make some money, So yeah, well, just follow whatever.
And they got good football too. Although not today.
So you're the first person in history ever say I was the ****? Yeah, Fair, fair And Iowa football could be coming soon.
Big 10 is expected within 72 hours.
Things have happened.
Let's go through the final game before the prime time ones.
Tampa Bay versus New Orleans It might as well be prime time, but we know why.
It's not prime time, because the NFL is nervous that Tom Brady and the Bunkers won't be ready yet.
So not have them on national TV.
Don't embarrass Tom.
54% of the bets 59% of the money is coming in on Tampa.
We have Oh, we didn't talk about the Chargers.
What am I doing here? You including, like, you've been on the Chargers just for it is we're not talking about the Chargers.
I'm flipping between sites right now, and everyone has them and completely different order.
But we'll do this one first.
It sounds as though Mike Evans could be out for Tampa, which, you know, big loss.
Um, New Orleans has been horrendous in Week one's under Sean Payton.
I'm trying to see if I can find that I know against the spread they're like they're like three and 17 or something in their last 20 or something.
It's really, really embarrassingly bad.
And I was a victim to it, obviously once, and I'm for sure not going to bet New Orleans for that reason, like there's no way I'm going to watch this game.
You would think New Orleans wins.
There are better top to bottom team.
They're more well rounded.
They do everything.
Well, Tampa Bay.
They could have some growing pains.
You know, you never know.
It really helps if Mike Evans at least hobbles on the field and takes Marsh on Latimores coverage.
If he's not on the field, I'm certain thing Marshal on Lattimore may try to help double Rob Gronkowski.
I think that could be the way he goes, Believe it or not, which would be interesting.
I would love to see that one, actually.
But what's your guys take on this game? Are you putting it? Do you have a stronger opinion of it than I do? I like I like Gronk for DFS.
I think he's the one that's going to get the red zone looks if and when the Buccaneers get there because Tom Brady has 10 years of familiarity with him.
Hey can count on Gronk in the red zone and I think, um, I think that he's going to want Thio kind of silence all the noise of, like Rob Gronkowski's trashy washed up why they even signed them all that stuff.
If he gets his buddy, touchdown her, too and weak one.
All that noise kind of goes away subsides.
I think, obviously, this is the healthiest that Rob is going to be at any point of the season.
I think he's gonna be jacked up. Bring.
I think that's big.
I think that also hurts.
Godwin, as we've discussed, probably hurts.
Godwin helps Gronk a little bit, but Tom Brady and his first name is a buccaneer.
It, you know, an elite wide receiver like that.
I probably wouldn't touch the game like the Saints to win this game.
I might even talk myself into land in the juice on the 1 75 money line.
5 is not that much, but I don't know.
I think the Saints are, if you're gonna bet it.
I think the Saints are are the way to g O.
Just because the Buccaneers are truly who knows what you're gonna get.
Type, type, deal.
Um, but I probably will just sit back and enjoy this one as a fan without without risking anything.
I like that plan.
And I would agree with you, Jake.
I think if I had saints, we don't know what we're gonna get from the other side.
But at the same time, we don't know we're going to get from the Saints, because it's what we want.
So they do this every year.
A completely different team after the first one or two or three weeks.
Um, so I don't really have a great play.
Uh, you guys on this one, I would rather just kind of wash it and see what? See what comes it.
My off season If we want to do one last minute futures to get off season futures plays.
I've been looking at Alvin Kamara over calm, total rushing yards and then over his total touchdowns as well.
So I'm not sure where those would still be available in the market.
Just checked on draftees.
It looks like they pulled them down, but well, I blocked that, and I think the touchdowns was a 10.
5 and progression coming for a camera in terms of touchdowns.
Especially so Andi should be if we're gonna throw the fantasy angle at it, a fantasy study as well, considering I believe he was the top 10 back last year with those poorer numbers.
So Alvin Kamara futures bets take the overs there.
That's pretty much all I got going to this one.
It just under new contracts.
So there will be no contract talks, no worries about, you know, potential holdouts potential, you know, sour feelings towards the team for the next five years.
So Camaro is gonna be a staple of that.
New Orleans, often mhm.
Maybe it's because blind to move it all anymore, we have charges favored by 2.
5 now went down from three.
That's because 55% of the bets and 57% of the public money is on the Bengals.
You love to see it.
I'm very happy about that.
We're all very bad team on defense.
Offensively, you have Joe Burrow.
It's not college anymore.
Facing his first college or NFL snap ever, he's gonna look to his left, and he's gonna see Melvin Ingram.
He's gonna look to his right and he's gonna see Joey Bosa and he's gonna have the ball and probably see both of them very quickly.
It's not going to be.
It's not gonna be fun for him.
If A J Green's out there for no any snaps in this in half, then I think that's probably chalk that up as a win for the Bengals spiritually, but I don't think they have any chance on the scoreboard in this game.
Devine's banged up Bryan Bulaga is on the injury report.
Uh, of course he is.
Why wouldn't he be? Is the NFL season after all? Expect to see him.
I think there Williams is probably going to miss.
I don't think it matters.
His defense for the Chargers is drastically underrated.
Somehow, I don't understand why I don't care that they lost German James.
It's a massive loss.
That doesn't mean there at that defense, make any mistakes.
He just doesn't do it.
He's throwing 20 interceptions for his entire career.
I believe it's a 1.
2% interception rate.
Something like the play's is the perfect receivers for that.
With Austin Meckler and Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry, it's a pre season game for him.
You know most teams don't get pre season this year, Chargers luckily, yeah, we've talked extensively about this game.
I like charges pretty much across the board.
I love their defense as well.
Um, they're gonna be able to create turnovers.
And when you have a quarterback who doesn't turn the ball over and create turnovers at a high level, it's just 2 to 3 extra possessions most.
I mean, if you're talking even to extra possessions, you score even a field on one of them There.
You're covering the spread already, as long as you take care of business elsewhere.
Um, I think the Bengals receiving corps has all the potential in the world as soon as Joe Burrow gets up to speed that the NFL develops a little bit of chemistry with them.
If a J Green can stay healthy, I think that they're gonna be good moving forward and moving down the line.
I don't see it happening here in week one.
I think if you can contain Joel Nixon and just now actually get in Joe Burrows face, which is gonna happen anyway, It could be a slow start in a clunky first half for the Bengal or for the Bengals, so the charges will come out even put 14 points on the board.
I could see them shuffling out the Bengals or keeping them to three points in the first half.
I think it should be a comfortable win, especially with only, uh, only having to cover 2.
I don't think that's a problem for the Chargers this week.
Yeah, Bengals offensive line Not set up for success here Week one.
That's that's basically the crux of the argument.
I think when you look at this game and then not to mention the Chargers second level even adding kind of worry through the draft, he's gonna make his NFL debut.
That's a boost to the linebacking corps in the secondary.
Exactly losing James.
It hurts, but they should be fine.
You still got Casey Hayward.
Plenty of talent in the back, Um, and office.
I'm not worried.
I mean, I know you're changing quarterbacks from Philip Rivers who, you know, I'm still trying.
I guess he's going to show me here next few weeks whether he is still capable of leading a team to great things offensively.
I'm not so sure that he is and, uh, charges offensive line Last year when I was banged up for a lot of the season, but there were some games.
Are Philip Rivers plenty of time to throw and he just made bed throws eso force hitting balls into double coverage.
I believe it was a Monday night game against the Chiefs.
I think it was because it was Mexico City, right? And some of the past.
Is he making where he had? And I was like, That was not the line that game because Philip Rivers was out of control.
So bringing Tyrod Taylor, who is not a splashy quarterback but he's a game manager, he's a dual threat.
Uh, take a dunk.
Like Zack said, Perfect person.
I'll make that work in, uh, Heckler and Kenya Now and especially, I think this is they're just to wear down the Cincinnati defense a little bit more.
He might be a bit of a fantasy sleeper for me this year.
Ah, and I think the charges should roll pretty easily in this one brighter days ahead for Cincinnati.
But not with this one.
Not with the rookie quarterback and those two edge rushers being the I'm looking up the specific name I want to say here.
Um, but talking about sleep or running back, I don't think it's best in Jackson.
I believe it's the rookie who's going Joshua Kelly.
Okay, he's a poor.
I'll say that, Um, his team loves him.
They keep talking him up.
I don't think Josh Jacks are, um, I think enough now.
Who's the guy? Said Justin Jackson.
God, uh, I don't think he's especially talented.
He played fine last year, but I think you know, it's kind of a default.
Yeah, that's enough of this game.
That this one seems pretty straightforward to me.
This one is less straightforward to me.
We have the death Cowboys and Uncle Mike going to Los Angeles to face the Rams for the favorites.
You can get the Rams at 2.
5 at points out in a few other places, though I've been hearing so much Ram talk this week, it's almost throwing off because at first I thought this was a lock for the Cowboys just because, you know, we talked about what was the Rams struggled last season.
It was their offensive line offensive line, didn't really have many changes, and then you have the Cowboys, who had a good defensive line last year. They add everything.
They have Elden Smith there now if he, you know, is half the player he was with the 40 Niners and he could be crazy.
Yeah, like if you get pressure around Jared Goff, he's going to make a mistake.
He's proved that time and time again.
But there's been so much hype on this Rammstein.
But I guess maybe Sean McVeigh has a little bit of magic for week one.
I tend to lean that he's an overrated coach, and not that great.
But, I mean, he's a pretty face for the NFL.
Maybe that's why everyone loves them.
I'm not sure, but I would personally lean cowboys in this game.
What I said, not so pretty anymore are.
Wait, Sean, You said Sean Buffet, not Sean Payton.
Sorry, I was half listening.
That was like, Wait, we're not even talking about the saints.
He's got a painting on the mind.
What do you guys think about this game? Jake is siding with his relative Hunter.
Good God, Henry, talk.
We just talked about 100.
Yeah, Yeah, so I can start.
I think for me, I'm looking for this line to move a little bit further of seeming some more public money.
Will comment on America's team Dallas.
And if it does, hit the key number of three.
Remember your key numbers in NFL betting are 37 10 but three, especially being a field goal differential.
That's where I'm looking for this to go.
If it gets to 3 3.
5, I was a little bit better.
I I would be looking to dabble in some Los Angeles Rams here Sunday night.
I think both teams have a lot of potential this year.
We know the question is the offensive line in Dallas.
It's just coming all together here with a new coach and some new contributors and some turnover on that offensive line as well.
That press that's gonna be working with a new center.
So there's some things there to keep an eye on here, especially when you're when you got Aaron.
Donald cross the ball tomorrow night.
That will be a formidable test.
You know Jalen Ramsey in the secondary.
Uh, that could be a problem for one Seaver, depending on how they decided or whatnot.
But Dallas has got so many weapons offensively, I'm not necessarily as concerned about that angle for me.
I think the Rams are Oh, you should most of last year.
Assuming this offensive line steps up.
I think it'll be interesting to see how the running back situation plays out.
And there's just so many receiving weapons.
Jared Goff is gonna be throwing it a lot again.
Um, I'm not gonna say Sean McVay is the best coach ever, but I don't think I'm questioning whether he's a brilliant football mind.
I'm looking for some more movement, and I'm looking to grab Rams at three or better.
And the total is interesting first one, too, because it got bed up and you don't really see that a lot.
You wouldn't think you would see that Week one totals.
So Well, I think right now if I had todo probably lean under, but it's a pass for me.
At this point, I'm just gonna be interested to see if there's any last minute changes to that total line throughout the day tomorrow before kickoff.
Um, I mean pretty easy for me here. I have to go.
I can't talk off all this Cowboys and then at against the Cowboys, especially when it's only 2.
5 point when they got a comfort by 2.
Another little interesting thing just to throw at you here.
UH, sent 2000 and six.
Mike McCarthy has Onley lost in Week one of the NFL season three times, and it was three years in a row 12 13 and 14.
Other than that, he has.
I mean, he hasn't lost in Week one since 2014 and then he didn't lose a week.
One for five previous years before 2000 and 12.
I don't know how much you know that water that holds.
I don't know how how much merit you can put into that, But he's a good week. One coach.
He usually starts off the season season.
Well, I do think he's going thio.
Bring a new look whether whether you're a fan of that look and you politically heavy or not, whatever, I think it's gonna be to look Dallas offense.
I think they have more weapons than the Rams.
Just all around.
I think six gonna be able Thio do his thing in Week one and again, 2.5 points.
Pretty easy for me.
Um, might be a close enough.
Might be a close game.
Obviously, uh, if it was a seven or eight point spread, I'm a lot more nervous.
It's only 2.5 points.
I'll take Honestly, This game comes down to the Rams offensive line.
If they can't blocked out us, then Dallas is going to run away with it.
If they can slow down the best rush.
I don't think the Rams will have any problem picking apart this Cowboy secondary, so I think we'll get Ah, I'm going to be pretty quickly.
I actually I actually did my math wrong, Mike.
Mike McCarthy went on a six year streak where he one week one, and then he lost three years in a row, and then he went four more years.
So 10 out of his 13 years he's won the first game of the season before he used ****ytical.
Yeah, that's right, because the ****ytics to score more points, you win.
Uh, Mike McCarthy's is super physical and practice, and he runs his guys into the ground so they're ready to go Week one.
And then towards the end, the season, they're all hurt.
We get every single year.
He's the Tom Thibodeau of the NFL.
Look at that comparison.
Thank you, that's all.
It sounds great coming out of my mind.
Even I was surprised I was probably most surprised.
Okay, I'll go to Monday night.
First Monday night game.
We get to this week. We're spoiled.
First one is Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants.
83% of the bets.
87% of the money on the Steelers.
We have a line of 5.
5 is the best you can get. That's fanduel.
Sports book for the Steelers is mostly six points, though across the industry.
I know they added Logan Ryan.
I think he shadows and takes what you do.
Smith Schuster And then I think James Washington is going to run wild.
I think James Connor has a good game.
And then, defensively, Steelers probably are the best defense in the NFL.
I think Buffalo could give them run for them burgers.
And I don't think the Giants are experienced enough.
They have the weapons.
But I don't think they're experienced enough to compete.
And we already have golden tape banged up.
Who is the only experienced guy on the offense? The defense is going to be a problem for Daniel Jones.
A big problem e.
I mean, we've seen.
How common is it, Especially with quarterbacks who came in Mawr, highly touted, more proven than Daniel Jones.
They always have a rough second year.
I think that's on the horizon. Four.
Daniel Jones, especially in a tough week.
Week one matchup.
Obviously, the defense was the reason that they were able Thio nearly make the playoffs last year.
They did it without a consistent quarterback.
Uh, Devlin Hodges.
I liked the guy.
He's part of my take fan and everything good, you know, fun, fun interview.
Not not an NFL quarterback.
Not the guy that you dealers were still competitive.
They still managed to win what, eight names or whatever they won last year.
You bring Big Ben back now who, uh, looks pretty good.
He's excited to be back, having her lunch retirement talk out of them recently.
So I think all things are things go for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and I think this line should be higher.
Give me that all day.
Yeah, it's Steelers or nothing here for me, and I think it's Steel is pretty comfortably.
The Giants defense is just so bad, uh, came back.
I think, of course, that we have the charges.
Get a preseason game.
It almost feels like the Steelers, at least offensively, the preseason game and met.
You can't say enough about that for a guy who's coming up missing pretty much an entire season.
Uh, John Johnson locking in for fantasy this week.
I think that there's a big game waiting to be happen there, uh, from the outside, especially if Logan Ryan is gonna be prioritizing juju Smith Schuster.
That's a guy that for bit of last year, Johnson didn't even have work inside of him, and he was still able to put some decent numbers along with a terrible tandem of quarterbacks.
So love Deonte Jackson.
You know, you guys already spoke, uh, giving praise to the Steelers defense, and it's completely deserved, I think, think of Fitzpatrick gets an interception this game with Daniel Jones trying to sling it to keep the Giants in it.
And Pittsburgh and Steelers go out on a limb and say that I'm going to give them the ifs.
You know? I think they're gonna win.
They're gonna be better in Baltimore to share in the standings.
I really like this team.
Uh, it's all riding on where you can find a glaring weakness.
Uh, maybe offense wine a little, but not enough to say that there going to be unable to protect him in the pocket.
So if Roethlisberger comes back, Pittsburgh is a, by the way, Henry Pittsburgh plus 3 50 to win the A F C North.
So some great value there.
I do like that, too.
Um, I do think James Washington's the better watch receiver play over Danny Johnson.
But most people around the industry and people playing DFS publicly are on your side for that one.
So maybe it's just my contrary in mind.
But I've seen James of Washington and big men have access, have not seen the same with DeAndre Johnson and Tibetan.
I go contrarian all the time, so this is a rare occurrence where I'm not, And, yeah, totally understand it.
Them? Yeah, last game.
We made it here.
We have quite a bit of injuries, and but quite a bit.
I mean to injuries for the Denver Broncos currently.
Well, let's just say Broncos opened his home favorites.
I think it was either doing a half or three points that completely flipped when Von Miller got hurt.
He's out a minimum of three months practice, It sounds like, and this Vic Fangio said, okay is he is an idiot.
The court was hunting.
Spring is a T joint.
That's not good.
He avoided major injury, but he gets hit hard on his shoulder.
It's not going to be good, Vic Fangio said.
If he could do 10 jumping jacks, he is going to play Stop.
So that means Courtland son is going to play because he's going to do 10 jumping jacks.
Whatever he's going.
I would be surprised if he plays for quarters, and that just hurts this team where if he starts the game and didn't finish it on the other coming in, you know, now it's favorites.
They won that and, you know, welcome to the altitude in Denver.
But he is very as well as past brush.
If you could stop the Broncos run running game early, I think they're done.
And that's why I like Tennessee in this game.
I've heard a lot of people.
The reason since there's been such a big flip, they would rather go on bet Broncos again.
I completely understand that.
Take, I just don't think anywhere near to as good of a team is Tennessee is.
Broncos have spent the most money out of anyone in the league on their defense and maybe the least amount of money on their offense just because they're all drunk. That picks.
Obviously, that's Melvin Gordon, but they're so inexperienced.
And the opposite is true for Tennessee.
I will side with experience in week one, all the side with better coaching in Week one, and I'll sign side with health.
And that's tendency in all three factors.
Yeah, I mean, some some pretty great points There I was on Denver early on, like back when you were talking about your 19 parlay, and you were like, Cool.
Um, I think I'm off this game now. Completely.
Uh, just the six point swing that we saw is I mean, it doesn't necessarily make me nervous, but, like I like to the, um we're Does this might sound I like the Broncos better as three point favorites than I do Huge, I think.
Sutherland being up good enough now Thio fight the elements because that was a big factor for me to know.
Preseason, No Riel hitting nothing like that.
And then on top of it, you got to go playing the altitude play against guys that have been practicing in the big factor for me.
But now two of your big main main contributing guys are down.
Um, I I think, too, that Tennessee does come out and win this game, but I don't like like I don't like Tennessee all that much this year.
I think they were one of my surprise teams that I ended up taking the under on their team win total.
I think that they were better last year with Ryan Tannehill, obviously than they were with, uh with Mariota.
But I still don't think they were great.
I think what we saw out of Tannehill in the playoffs is kind of more so what we're going to see for a majority of the season.
It's gonna be very Derrick Henry dependent.
And I just don't love the Titans this year.
Yeah, I think we can leave this.
And which came where we talk about Raiders Panthers, where Carolina opened is the favorite.
And then the number has now swung through zero.
And the Raiders were sitting around a field goal.
This'll one Denver opened was a bigger favorite.
5 ish, and it swung through zero.
And you're looking at Tennessee around 33 a half.
Uh, but again, when you're moving through zero and staying south of a fuel, uh, how significant really are those numbers? You know, the games.
Just sitting around a pick.
Once you start getting worth of a fallible, that's when wind movement through zero really starts jumping out.
I guess when I'm looking at it.
So, yes, it's moved six points.
Uh, but right around the loss of Von Miller is just That's huge for this Denver defense.
That's the heart.
So not only your defense, but your team.
When you have young guys on the offensive side, the leader of your team is now out for the year or likely out for the year, I guess, is the official way to put it here.
I think some of these young done for playmakers on office could find their footing this year.
I think the running back do of Melvin, Gordon and Philip off and farewell.
I've never had one of the best run blocking offensive lines last year, and, you know, that should continue to draw Casey coming up Las Vegas easily.
So they flip teams.
Um, so, you know, cases probably upgrade, but you're still losing a guy there.
We already talked about losing Miller eso It's Tennessee here in this game.
I think for me I am pushing a pan and I think on the same FC South and any of three teams kind of winning it because I was married to write off the Texas just yet, and I want to overreact to that game.
But I think I'm pretty confident in writing off the Texans if that defensive performance is what we're gonna see more of this year.
Granted, it was Kansas City, so then it becomes a two horse race between India and Tennessee, and I like the Titans.
I think in the A F c South.
Just throw that in there as well. I love my grave.
Eliza coach Signing Clowney is huge.
The defensive front was arguably the team's greatest weakness.
And if Adoree Jackson company came, maybe turn it up a notch.
Malcolm Butler and them in the secondary that defensively? Fine.
Now I'm excited to see what a full year of Ryan Tannehill really does here for Yes, I forgot to mention this Adoree Jackson out K J handler on the Bronx side, most likely out.
And then the two we mentioned by Miller.
Alcorn son is going to play, I fully believe, but I just don't know how long.
And I would have, uh, drew blocks time, most accurate quarterback.
And if he makes reach for one, I would assume a physical Tennessee defense is going to take a shot.
But yeah, we did it.
We went through 15 games.
Go just under 2.
Given the people free content, um, I may do something in the morning.
I'm not sure to do some last second fantasy stuff.
You guys were welcome to join me.
