After one week, we’re in the black! We won three out of four bets last week with the vanuted Bet Your Mortgage the easiest money we made.
How does Week 2 look? Let’s check it out!
Note: I use Bovada’s odds just a few hours before the game for all the spreads.
Baltimore Ravens (-1.5) vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Yes, the Ravens won by a million points last week, but that was the Buffalo Bills — a team that doesn’t know what it’s doing at quarterback and showed as much by benching Nathan Peterman. The Bengals are (obviously) better but I think the Ravens still squeeze this one out tonight in a low-scoring affair.
Bet on the Ravens to win by more than two points.
New Orleans Saints (-7.0) vs. Cleveland Browns
Sorry, Cleveland — you’re on the road and the Saints are going to get up early. It won’t be totally embarrassing but it will be a two-score win by New Orleans.
Bet on the Saints and give up a touchdown to the Browns.
Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers put up a 50 burger last week, but don’t expect that to happen against a defense like the Eagles.
Bet on the Eagles and give 3.5 points to the Buccaneers.
Jacksonville Jaguars (+1.0) vs. New England Patriots
The Patriots have Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, but their run game is suspect as is their run defense — two things the Jaguars will absolutely exploit. I think the Jaguars win outright on Sunday.
Bet on the Jaguars and take a point.
