You’ve come to the right place. Whether you like to hedge your fantasy matchups or double down on your favorite team, there will be enough lucrative bets posted here each week to increase your wallet size.  I will post my favorite picks from game lines, over/unders, and sprinkle in some player prop bets to keep it spicy. If the mood strikes, you can expect some parlays to carry through the entire weekend as well.

2019 Season Results: +36.8Units
2019 Overall Record: (98-81-2)

Spreads

2U: New England -6 (-110) vs. Miami – Cam Newton, if healthy (and I think he is), can be spectacular in a Josh McDaniel’s offense. Just think Tim Tebow on the Broncos times 100. The Patriots have a big and tall wide receiver in N’Keal Harry and a great pass-catching running back in James White. Newton and the Patriots are going to be fine.

3U: Minnesota -2.5 (-110) vs. Green Bay – The Vikings defense got a lot better this year, even if they are without Danielle Hunter for the first few games. The Packers are… the same. Sure, their defense isn’t bad, but they are generally slow starters to the season. Without a real offense, I lean towards the home team in this match.

2U: Las Vegas -3 (-110) @ Carolina – New coach, new quarterback, and one of the worst defenses in the league. Please welcome your 2020 Carolina Panthers! It is strange to say, but I don’t see how the Panthers will be able to contain the Raiders offense.

3U: Pittsburgh -5.5 (-110) @ New York Giants – Ben Roethlisberger is back, and the Steelers are scary when all their play-makers are healthy. I anticipate Daniel Jones and the Giants to have at least three turnovers in this game.

Over/Under

2U: New England vs. Miami: Over 42 (-110) – The Dolphins are already a better team than they were last year. Jordan Howard and Matt Breida are both upgrades over their running backs from last year. The Patriots defense isn’t as robust as last year with all of the opt outs either.

1U: Washington vs. Philadelphia: Under 43.5 (-110) – These two teams are anything but spectacular when you look at their offenses. The first game will be messy, especially when one team has a new coach with a young roster.

Thursday Night Player Props

5U: David Johnson Over 44 Rushing Yards (-115) – Bill O’Brien has always been committed to running the ball with far less talented running backs than David Johnson. Even Carlos Hyde eclipsed 44 rushing yards in all but three games last year.

4U: Will Fuller Over 60 Receiving Yards (-110)Brandin Cooks is officially questionable and he will be a game-time decision against the Chiefs tonight. Even if Cooks does play, it will be on a limited basis and Fuller is capable of hitting this mark with one catch.
