21-21-3 on NFL down 2.07 units
I was very right about Saquon Barkley rushing for more than 63 yards. Barkley had 130 yards rushing to go along with 99 receiving yards. I was very wrong about the Giants being able to win the game. It seems every time the ball is in Saquon’s hands, the Giants gain 7 yards or more. Every time it is in Eli’s hands, they gain a few yards if they are lucky. A three and out when they don’t run the ball once with Barkley is excruciating. Congrats to the Eagles. They will most likely win that trash division.
Life is too short not to send it. Going big on NFL today.
Ravens -2.5 at -115 for 7 units. Public is on the Titans, but the line keeps going up for the Ravens. The “duffle bag bettors” are placing their wagers on the Ravens and so will I. The Ravens are just better than the Titans. Joe Flacco has been playing well this season. John Brown will have a good game now that Denzel Ward is not covering him. No offense to Malcom Butler, but John Brown is too quick for him. Baltimore’s defense allows less than 16 points a game. Baltimore averages over 100 more yards a game on offense than the Titans. Dean Pees is the defensive coordinator for the Titans now, but he retired with the Ravens in January. Joe Flacco will know some of his tendencies and vice versa. I think Baltimore’s defensive front 7 will be too much for Mariota. Ravens win by a touchdown or more.
Jets -2.5 at -108 for 7 units. No TY Hilton and Jack Doyle for the Colts. Jets defense will be able to stop the run, which will put a lot of pressure on Andrew Luck’s shoulders. Throwing to Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers doesn’t scare me (Eric Ebron is pretty damn good though). Colts give up over 100 yards rushing a game and that will continue today. Public is on the Colts, gotta love fading the public. Jets are missing some players on defense like Buster Skrine, but they will get enough stops to cover this one.
Seahawks -2.5 at -110 for 7 units. London Game. Coach Gruden gets sick going on flights. Oakland’s sickly head coach hurts them. Derek Carr has not played well this season as he has 8 interceptions so far. Coming into this week, Oakland has given up the second most points in the league at 149 points against. Seattle has looked solid the past 3 weeks. Raiders haven’t looked solid all season. These London games are always a little fishy, but I am going to bet on the team with the better QB and the better coach.
Chargers at +110 for 1 unit. Chargers have only lost to the Chiefs and the Rams this season. Those are the two best teams in the NFL so far. I will take the Chargers as an underdog against the Browns. The Browns are talented, but their head coach is awful. Hue “2” Jackson is holding his fingers up and his team back. Melvin Gordon is a beast. Phil Rivers has been playing his best football in recent years. The Chargers gave the Browns their only win in 2016, and struggled to beat them last year. San Diego won’t take this team for granted. Mike Williams should have a day with Denzel Ward guarding Keenan Allen.
