I am going to apply a Sand$ amount to each prop in order to make this a little more interesting. It will also make it a lot easier to track how well I do (or how badly ...) each week. I will put 5,000 Sand$ on each season prop and anywhere from 100-500 Sand$ on each weekly prop depending on my conviction level.
Season Prop Bets:
5,000 Sand$ - New York Jets to win under 8.5 games (-180)
Things didn’t go quite as I expected in Week 1 for the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. In fact, it was the exact opposite of what I expected. Are the Jets better than I thought? Maybe. Are the Bills worse than I thought? Definitely. I am still sitting comfortable and cool with this bet despite the Jets starting off 1-0.
100 Sand$ - Michael Vick(Philadelphia) Total Touchdown Passes + Interceptions Thrown over 2.5 (-115)
I wish I could support this with facts. It’s nothing more than a pure gut call. Let’s hope he plays all four quarters this weekend.
300 Sand$ - Darren McFadden(Oakland) Total Rushing + Receiving Yards over 115.5 (-115)
The Oakland Raiders proved to the world that Darren McFadden is their main (and only?) offensive weapon. It is possible that McFadden racks up 115 rushing and
receiving yards against the Miami Dolphins. Denarius Moore returning to the lineup should help the Raiders’ running game and McFadden will be the workhouse again in Week 2.
100 Sand$ - Steven Jackson(St. Louis) Total Rushing Yards under 78.5 (-115)
The Rams’ offensive line fell apart in Week 1 and is now riddled with injuries. Chances are that the Washington Redskins will be leading in this game, which could mean less running plays for Jackson.
300 Sand$ - Jared Cook(Tennessee) Total Receptions over 3.5 (-120)
Fact: Cook was on the field for more than 60 snaps in Week 1. Fact: Cook does not stay on the field to block. He runs routes.
400 Sand$ - Denver Broncos total points over 24 (-115)
There are two things in life that you never do. You never tell your wife/girlfriend that she looks fat in a dress and you never bet against Peyton Manning in a primetime game. I expect the Broncos to win this game, and I would be surprised if the Atlanta Falcons scored less than 24 points at home.
Season prop bets: 20,000 Sand$ Week 2 prop bets: 1,600 Sand$ Last week gain/loss: 0 Sand$ Total gain/loss: 0 Sand$
