It’s been a bit since the big dog has dusted off pen and given the masses winners. Lucky for all gamblers out there I am back for the season and I have never seen the board more clearly. I would equate the way I am seeing the board to a color blind person putting on those glasses that lets them see color. So let’s take a look at some games and make some money. It is Octoberfest Beer season in the Big Dog Household so let’s make some walking around money.
BAL @ NYJ (+6.5)
The fact the Jets are a touchdown home dog on the 21st anniversary of 9/11 is the NFLs way of gifting football fans free money. The Ravens are without their starting left tackle and running back. They still don’t have a single wide receiver who belongs on an NFL roster. They are starting a rookie at safety who looked was getting toasted by players who are currently unemployed during preseason. Their center played a total of 8 snaps during the preseason and will be dealing with a foot injury. Then to add onto all that their quarterback is going into the season disgruntled after they couldn’t figure out a deal in the offseason.
The Jets on the other hand, added secondary help with DJ Reed, Sauce Gardener and Jordan Whitehead. They get Carl Lawson back, added Kwon Alexander, and Jermaine Johnson. Offensively the Jets added two competent tight ends, something they haven’t had in years. They added Garret Wilson and Breece hall to increase team speed. Then the cherry on top is we get a Joe Flacco revenge game. Not only do I like the Jets +6.5 I like them to win outright.
Pick: Jets +6.5 with a sprinkle on Jets ML
CLE @ CAR (-.5)
Out of solidarity with masseuses nation wide I will be betting against the Browns. This is a big time karma game.
Pick: Car -.5
