If you took a peek in the comments early Thursday evening we posted a comment that we liked the J...E...T....S and while they didn't win, the cheaters didn't cover and if you took Gang Green +10, you made some Genos. Don't look now but skinny Rex has a big, fast, young defense that brings it, and a rookie QB with some upside.
Lots of people like the Fins on the road at Indy, but we don't simply because of this: they are fairly even teams distinguished by one team having a superior QB (Colts) and one team having a QB that the book hasn't been written on yet. Tannehill might be good or very good, but all we know from week one is that he couldn't get the ball to his 60 million dollar man Wallace. Take Indy with the much better QB and lay the very reasonable 3.
The Redskins/RGIII showed us this last week: preseason matters. A tough loss at home is followed by a road trip to Cheesehead land. We don't see it. 52nd Street Irving called us about this one:Take the Pack-9 and see our teaser below.
TEASER OF THE WEEK: Teasers allow you to move points with reduced odds on a multi-team bet. We use the odds 52nd Street posts at his book in Vegas and they're pretty standard. For a two team 6 point teaser- 11:10.
The Line in San Diego at Philly is Eagles -7.5. The Line in Redskins at Packers is Green Bay -9. We're going to pick the home team favourites and tease each line down 6 points. Laying 1100 to win a 1000 we now have the Eagles -1.5 and the Packers -3. For fun only.
Fantasy Football: We're 1-0 and heading into week two we're playing Danger 11 whose QB Brady scored a very pedestrian 13 points for him Thursday night. Our QB-Peyton Manning- gets 13 points in warmups (he torched the league for 55.9 points last week.) But the injury bug bit Peyton's Place (our team) hard this week, and we lost a RB and TE to injury, forcing us to go to the waivers where the pickings were slim and we nabbed Steeler RB Jonathan Dwyer who wasn't even on a team last Sunday. Right now we're debating Raven WR Marlon Brown vs. Steeler WR Antonio Brown. But for the fact that the Steelers have no O, this would be a no-brainer but we think Flacco and the Ravens are going to light up the Browns this week, so we're still up in the air.
Get your picks in. There is no clear favourite this week as there was last week with Indy over Oakland.
See You In Court Monday.
