Supercontest and best bet Week 2
4-0-1 last week. Feel even more confidence this week than last.
Saints +6.5 best bet. Pats have key injuries to start the season. No Amedola or Hightower on Sunday and this after already losing Edelman. Saints moved the ball against a much better D last week but couldn't do anything in the red zone. Pats D no where near as good as the Vikings. Give me the dog at home with way too many points here.
Jags +2.5 against Tenn. I don't get the love for the Titans. Their offense didn't look good in preseason. They only scored 16 last week against a Raiders team whose clear weakness is defense. Titans ran the ball so well last year but in preseason and week 1 still haven't shown me anything. Until they do I'll be betting against them. Jags D looked very good against Houston. This team has a new coach who is going to turn them around this year. Bortles just has to be a good game manager and give the ball to Fournette.
Jets +14, 13.5 now in the marketplace. My numbers have Oakland by 10. When this line hit 14 in Vegas it didn't last long. Some big bets were made on the Jets at this number. Jets obviously aren't very good but double digit dog this early in the season got my attention. Oakland D isn't great they should be able to put up enough to hang within the number.
Browns +8 against Baltimore. Line is now 7.5 across the board in Vegas. Baltimore played a lot of one score games last year. Browns are going to be a team that back door covers a lot this year. Got the cover for their backers last week against Pittsburgh. Hue Jackson will do things that make you scratch your head. Only way I'd bet this team this year is getting more than a TD. Baltimore looked good against a pathetic offensive team in Cincy. Should be a low scoring affair where points will be at a premium.
Lions +3.5 against the Giants. Another play where I took the hook as the Giants are +3 across the board here in Vegas. Can't get any good info on whether Beckham will play or not yet. One minute it's a longer injury than originally thought then he's going to go. This offense wasn't scoring much with him at the end of last season and only put up 3 against Dallas. Lions looked very good after going down 10-0 early to Arizona last week. Lions will be a good dog play this season with a good defense and Stafford graded out 2nd at QB last week on pro football focus.
All dogs no favs for me. My name in the contest is Mainehtrain. Best of luck Sunday.
