Well at least we somewhat know what to expect now that the preseason feeling week one is over.
Let’s start our week two preview with a look at the Thursday-nighter between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns. According to many bookies, the Browns are an average six point favorites over Joey B’s Bengals but the odds may shift anytime up till the game starts so keep that in mind.
I do like Burrow more than Mayfield here, but it feels like a season defining game for Cleveland. Give me the Bengals +5.5, but it’s going to come down to another field goal.
BIG THREE PICKS OF THE WEEK
3. Hit me with the Cowboys -4 against the Falcons (-110)
I saw absolutely nothing to write home about with Atlanta in the opening week and Dallas needs to make a statement. Dak Prescott can put on his big boy shoes and make some hay against this mediocre Falcons defense. Can someone please feed Ezekiel? America’s team by a bunch.
2. Give me all the points in the Panthers-Buccaneers game (Over 47.5 @ -110)
Tompa Bay needs to wake up and the Panthers aren’t afraid to put the ball in the end zone. I like both of these offences and know both the defenses have holes, meaning points, points and more points. I could easily see both teams putting up 30+ in this game.
1. Dub ready Minnesota Vikings ML (+135)
The Colts are overrated and Philip Rivers isn’t the answer. He forces too many plays and turns the ball over too much, meaning the Vikes d-core is going to eat this Sunday. If Minnesota can gat their run game dialed in look out. This team will eat up the clock, while draining the Colts line, which struggled in week one.
Bonus Play – Da Bears -5.5 (-110)
Mad man Mitch is ready to prove the haters wrong once again. Now I know the fourth quarter against the Lions was a once in a season performance and the Bears shouldn’t have won, but they did, and that’s all that matters. Trubisky can get rolling for Chicago and tear up the Giants secondary, which should lead to a 7-10 point victory.
