Picks of the week

by Dr. Rainmon

Week 1/8

With only three more weeks of football left (4 if you count the pro-bowl) that means there are only 3 (possibly four if you are a gambling addict) more weeks to gamble on football until pre-season starts in August, so let’s make sure to make these weeks count. I have outlined a couple of solid picks that I think can make you some extra money, and make this next week of football even more exciting. (all odds are from Sportsbook.ag)

Both the Patriots-Titans, and the Vikings-Saints games will feature three elite QBs (Case Keenum, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady & Alex Guerrero), as well as the greatest (QB-WR-RB-OL) threat of all time, Marcus Mariota. I like the Over on both the Patriots-Titans game (47) and the over on the Vikings-Saints game (45.5). The patriot’s offense is 1st in YDS/game, 2nd in PTS/game, and 2nd in PASS YDS/game.

I expect Tom Brady to put up big numbers against a decent Titans defense. To add to the over, I suggest betting that the Patriots will beat the spread (-13.5). Final Score: 35-17. I think the Vikings-Saints game will be a lot closer, as it features a stiff Vikings Defense, and two elite QBs (possibly two future halls of farmers): Case Keenum and Drew Brees. I think the experience of Drew Brees and his high powered offense will test Minnesota, but Case Keenum and the Vikings will hold off the Saint. I expect this game to be close, suggesting that you bet the over which is currently (45.5). Final Score: Vikings win, 27-24. Picking all three of these will put the line at a cool +600.
