I think we should take a look forward to the next season. I know it's early to talk about it, so therefore these are only leans to me. I've always liked future probs.
Ohh well, let's take a look at my 4 Leans, then you can share your thoughts with me if your like, and tell me which teams you do see value in.
New England Patriots:
This is the only team i will go with from the AFC conference. The AFC is much weaker than the NFC as of now, and i see The New England Patriots as the strongest team here. They will most likely make it into the play offs, they have been very consistent every year, and always made it far, and Tom Brady is the best quarterback in the AFC, and if Patriots can establish their defense they are one of the best teams in the NFL. Im not sure they will manage to do this, but as long as they have Bellichick, as long as they have Tom Brady, and as long as they have those awesome Tight-Ends, they will have a good chance of making it into the Super Bowl: And in the Superbowl anything can happen. The market for the pats is around +650 - +750 i think.
New Orleans Saints:
Saints can threaten any teams on the night to me. Drew Brees is an amazing quarterback, and their offense played incredibly well throughout most of the season, they were always due for over 35 points and should be considered as one of the best offenses. This team is hungry, and i like them as it stands now. Yesterday i saw them at +1000, now i can only get them at +900, and no way im going to play that. What can you guys get the Who Dat boys at?
San Francisco 49'ers:
You gotta remember; The San Francisco 49'ers has the easiest schedule for a NFC team probably. They will most likely go 5-1 or 6-0 in their division, and therefore by picking this team you shouldnt worry too much about whether they will make it into the playoffs or not. Their Defense is to me the best in the entire NFL, they really play hard and solid and cosnsitent defense for 60 minutes on the field, they are so tough and can trouble anybody. Their O-Line is amazing and have made a bad quarterback in Alex Smith look pretty good actually. 49'ers is an okay bet to me, and you can tick in at about +2200 i think.
Uhm, the Bears are probably placed in the toughest division in the whole NFL, but they should always be considered as a candidate for a wildcard spot, and Matt Forte proved to most people that he is one of the best and agile runningbacks in the league, and with Cutler back under center and with a strong playing defense, they can put on a nice performance. If this team can stay injury free this season, they could get far in my oppinion, they are a very decent team and the market is around +3200 which is pretty high. But, they have a tough schedule in a tough division, but as i said; If they can stay Injury Free and if they play like did they with Cutler/Forte they should be given a fair chance. But, i wouldn't put too many units on it anyways.
Share your foughts fellas.
