Seth has let me take over this segment for Week 10. It’s like being able to open a present before Christmas morning!
The Patriots don’t play until Sunday night tomorrow so join me and fill your pockets with cash before the 8:30p.m kickoff.
We are the BenchMob so I thought it would be fun to use various “Mob” phrases to explain my reasoning for certain bets. We will have Heists, Hits, and Holdups,
Heists: I am SUPER confident you should gamble your money on this – We are walking out with the safe from the vault. Ocean’s 11 type confidence.
I will have George Clooney type confidence in “Heists”. You guys will react like the rest of the crew but be happy in the end! $$$$ These are going to be my extremely confident ATS (Against the Spread) picks.
Can I go on a quick tangent? I think Ocean’s 11 is my favorite movie of all time. I’ve seen it over 100 times and if it’s on TV I stop everything and watch it until its conclusion. I know what’s going to happen, I KNOW THEY PULL IT OFF, yet I love it so much that I watch it over and over and over again.
If you learn nothing else from this: Heists = Extreme Confidence
Hits: These will be focused on the Over/Unders. I’ll preface this right now: They are all going to be Overs and please let me explain. The only time you will see me tell you to bet an under on here is when Chris Sale is pitching for the Red Sox. Life is too short to root for games to not be fun. I like fun, Overs are fun, so ask yourself if you like fun or not.
Holdups: These will be games I’m not touching with a ten-foot pole. If you read my blog on Friday previewing the Patriots you would know that the Broncos vs Pats games is one of these!
Awesome, now that you have your key let’s dive in:
New Orleans (6-2) vs Buffalo (5-3) New Orleans -2.5
Buffalo ALWAYS has these great starts to the season and then the second the games start to really mean something putter out and end up 7-9. Expect Alvin Kamara and the Saints to take this rather easily in Buffalo.
Dallas (5-3) vs Atlanta (4-4) Dallas + 3
YOU HEARD ME! Even without Zeke I think the Cowboys win this game. It doesn’t matter who is running behind that amazing Offensive Line. Atlanta is still getting over blowing a 28-3 lead! MAN IT NEVER GETS OLD!
Again, LIFE IS TOO SHORT: BET THE OVER
Vikings vs Redskins O/U 40
Saints vs Bills O/U 48
Bengals vs Titans O/U 40
OVER OF THE WEEK: Dolphins vs Panthers O/U 38
The Patriots are -8.5 against the Broncos. I despise that line and am not touching it. You shouldn’t either.
Pittsburgh is -11.5 against the Colts on the road. It’s just too many points for me, and I feel the Steelers are about to have their annual mid-season meltdown.
LA Rams are -12.5 against the Texans. I just don’t believe in the Rams yet. Goff has been playing out of his mind, but I don’t like them against the Texans here. -12.5 is just too much.
Cheers everybody! Hope you have a lucrative Sunday!
