SPREADING CHEDDAR: The One Stop Gambling Shop – Week 2

There is a NEW SECTION OF THE WEBSITE that is solely dedicated to betting. You will find a comprehensive model that not only aims to highlight inefficiencies in Spreads and Over/Under lines but will also provide a bookmaker that is offering the bet with the most lucrative odds. I will post my favorite picks from the model 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.

Starting Bank Roll: 1000 Units
Current Bank Roll: 1019 Units
Overall Record: (9-4-0)
Week 1 Results: +19 Units

Spreads

15U: Jacksonville Jaguars +10 (-110) at Houston Texans – I know, I know, I caught a favorable line here, but I still like the Jaguars at +8.5. The Texans can not block anyone! A line this big assumes that Gardner Minshew is a considerable downgrade from Nick Foles, but I think it may be an upgrade.

10U: Cincinnati Bengals -1 (-110) vs. San Francisco 49ers – The Bengals were close to ruining a lot of Survivor picks last week when they almost upset Seattle. The bottom line is that the Bengals are better than we all thought. Jimmy Garoppolo has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 7-to-8 for his six road games as a 49er. Yikes.

10U: Indianapolis Colts +3.5 (-115) at Tennessee Titans – The Colts are one of the most well-balanced teams in the NFL. The Titans are riding high after beating up on a Cleveland team that committed an egregious amount of penalties.

Over/Under

10U: Cleveland Browns at New York Jets: Over 44 (-110)Baker Mayfield and company will need to be more disciplined against the Jets defense. The Browns have all the weapons to put up enough points in order to win. Couple that with an anemic Browns defense and even Trevor Siemian will find a way into the endzone.

 

Player Props

15U: Evan Engram Receiving Yards Over 69.5 (-115) – The starting receivers for the New York Giants are Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler.

10U: Saquon Barkley Rushing Yards Over 89.5 (-115) – Barkley has proven that he can still produce on a team when is the main play-maker. The game this Sunday against Buffalo will be closer than last week and the rushing attempts will be there for Barkley on which to capitalize.

10U: Antonio Brown to Score a Touchdown (+140) – New England will want to show off their new shiny toy. If the team wants Brown to have a touchdown this weekend, the team can easily make it happen.

5U: Rex Burkhead Rushing Yards Over 33.5 (-115) – Burkhead averages 4 yards per rushing attempt over his career. He saw an uptick in usage last week after Sony Michel failed to do anything with the carries he was receiving, so you can expect Burkhead to slide back into his minimal usage role.

5U: Adrian Peterson Rushing Yards Under 50.5 (-115) – Peterson’s 2018 stats are wildly inflated by a few huge runs. Unfortunately, he is not anything close to the Adrian Peterson that we all remember and 50 yards has proven to be a tough mark for him to hit.
