Fed up with ‘almost’ longshots, let’s go sure fire!
It’s here – the first week of the season, where teams can lock in their spot in the playoffs.
While they’re busy doing that, let’s lock you in some funds for the coming week with a nice 4/1 treble.
There’s a word in the English language we use that can perfectly describe the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season. That word is ‘meh’.
Granted, their defence hasn’t been the same in the last few years, but Steelers Nation were hopeful of a Super Bowl run. I can assure you – that’s not happening.
Meanwhile, the G Men have exceeded expectations, and a win here drastically increases their chance of landing in the post-season. We remembered the legendary Sean Taylor this past week, who was shot dead in his home nine years ago.
He was the best safety I’ve seen play the game. Landon Collins reminds me of him and the hard-hitting Collins leads this Giants defense from the back.
When you take Odell and Sterling into consideration, this spread looks quite high. Go with it at .
Coming off the back of a heartbreaking loss to the Chiefs, this Denver team react to poor situations.
The Jaguars have drafted seemingly well this year, but it’s not enough for the Florida outfit to pull it all together.
Trevor Siemian is slowly coming to terms with being an NFL quarterback and with Von Miller coming off the back of a monster performance, expect confidence to be high. A poor season from Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns have really hurt the Jags, while Julius Thomas isn’t producing the safety blanket most expected.
This one is only going one way to the Broncos at .
The best team in the NFL with a losing record are the San Diego Chargers.
The oddsmakers are slowly catching up to this, and the Bolts’ prices are becoming fairer by the week. Regardless, San Diego are getting a key defensive piece back in the form of safety Jahleel Addae – they were as good in Houston as they’d been all season.
Tampa Bay will win a Super Bowl in the next five years, I’m convinced of it. However, they’re still lacking too many pieces right now.
Melvin Gordon is like a man possessed and the Chargers’ awkward offensive formations really stretch defences. The Bucs are paper thin in terms of depth and a trip to the West Coast is going to be an even longer trip home when they face defeat to the Chargers at .
