Good morning BCC! It's gameday and I got a pick for you to win money today. Last week I went 2-0 on my picks. I only have one for you today but let's go 1-0!
Travon Walker to record a sack +150(according to Fanduel Sportsbook)
Walker has recorded 1.5 sacks in the past 3 games, for some that may not seem like a lot but for Travon this is huge. Last year was a learning year for Walker becoming a true outside pass rusher. He is great defending against the run but has struggled as a pass rusher. Last year Walker only recorded 3.5 sacks, this year through 10 games he has 4. He is learning to become a pass rusher and as of now it's starting to pay off.
The Jags go against the Texans today which is basically the battle for first place in the AFC south. C.J. Stroud has been balling at QB for Texans and is in the MVP conversation as a rookie. What has slowed him down from being the frontrunner of that conversation is his 4 interceptions in the last 2 weeks. Before his increase in turnovers, he only threw 1 interception up to that point. I think Stroud will stand in the pocket more to prevent turnovers today. This plays perfect to Travon Walker as he is quick off the line and has success with QBs who want to stay in the pocket.
