Super-Early Super Bowl LVII Staff Picks
Super-Early Staff Picks To Win Super Bowl LVII Lucy Burdge: Patriots +5000 at DraftKings After seeing what Mac Jones’ new diet and workout plan has done for his physique, I don’t see why the Patriots can’t make a Super Bowl run this season. Jones’ passing has reportedly improved this offseason as well, which is promising. After a solid rookie season, I think he can avoid a sophomore slump in his second season in the NFL. I never count out Bill Belichick to have something up his sleeve and what he did with Jones last season to get this team to the playoffs was impressive. I think they can take...
Is Bears To Be Lowest Scoring Team A Good Bet?
According to the latest odds from DraftKings Sportsbook, the Chicago Bears aren't exactly going to be lighting up the scoreboard in 2022. The site has the Bears listed as the second favorite to be the lowest scoring team in the NFL at +600, just behind the Houston Texans who are listed as the favorite at +550. These types of bets are always intriguing to make, but I would never recommend betting large on them, simply due to the volatility of how a season might play out. Which is exactly what we are going to be discussing here today, and why you should always be cautious betting on a new regi...
NFL Win Totals: Chiefs Have Tough Road To The Over
The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the staples of the NFL over the past four years or so since one Patrick Mahomes took over the reigns from Alex Smith. His ability at the quarterback position is something that is extraordinarily rare, and he has led his team over their current projected win total for the 2022 season of 10.5 each season he has been the starting QB. However, times have started to change a bit in the AFC West, and the Chiefs themselves have started down a different path than what they had become accustomed to over the last several years. While it is very difficult to bet ...
Three Potential Overachieving NFL Teams For 2022
Sure, we have plenty of time before the NFL season kicks off, but that doesn't mean we should just ignore the futures market. We know the NFL loves to give us a team or two that beats preseason expectations, and this year will likely be no different. It's never easy to find that potential organization, but there are certain characteristics that tend to stand out, whether it's talent upgrades, coaching changes, or just who they might see on their schedule. Here's three potential teams that could exceed expectations in 2022: Jacksonville Jaguars (6.5 wins) Last Year's Record: 3-14 The Jags ...
Saints Have Pieces To Exceed Their Win Total in 2022
The New Orleans Saints are going through a transition right now. Gone is the Sean Payton era that saw the franchise competing for division titles year after year, and long gone is the Drew Brees-run offense that saw countless dynamic plays in it's prime. Now it's Dennis Allen's team, and an offense led by Jameis Winston. Sure, neither has a resume anywhere close to what Payton and Brees brought to the table, but that doesn't mean this is anything near a lost season for the Saints. It's clear the organization is willing to build around Winston, at least in the short term, and they just migh...
Finding Value In Long Shot NFL MVP Candidates
If you look at the top of the list of MVP favorites heading into the 2022 NFL season, there's no surprises to speak of. Josh Allen is the favorite again (+700 consensus), followed by Patrick Mahomes (+800), Tom Brady (+830), and Aaron Rodgers (+980). All but Allen have already won it, and every one of them is one of the top quarterbacks in the league. That's pretty much how the award works. If you scroll down just a little bit farther though, there's a couple of names that may not be talked about as much, but bring some serious value in this market -- Justin Herbert (+1020) and Russell Wil...
Ravens Set For Bounce-Back Year in 2022
The Baltimore Ravens just don't get enough credit for what they were able to accomplish last year. After a plague of injuries that was so severe before the season even started, plenty of people were willing to write them off before Week 1. Yes, they finished 8-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time in three years. Let's be honest, though, winning eight games when they saw names like Marcus Peters, Ronnie Stanley, J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Marlon Humphrey, L.J. Fort, Derek Wolfe, DeShon Elliott, among others missing either the season or significant time is still a major accomplishment....
Top 3 Offensive Player Of The Year Bets For 2022
Cooper Kupp, +800 It should be said that Kupp is the favorite for this award as it stands, far out from when the actual season starts. That number comes with good reason though, as Kupp is poised to be even stronger in year two with Matt Stafford at the helm in this Los Angeles offense that can put up astounding numbers. Head Coach Sean McVay's offense is known as one of the most dynamic and explosive in football, and with another year of seasoning between quarterback and receiver, we could be in for an incredible ride when all is said and done next year. It wouldn't be shocking at all to se...
Improved Bengals Still Have Tough Road Ahead
The Cincinnati Bengals had an all-time great Cinderella season last year. The whole "worst to first" situation is nothing new in this league, but Cincy was an extreme example. Going from just a 4-win team in 2020, to 10 wins and a division title would've already been considered a success, but then they had to go ahead and win the AFC and play in the Super Bowl, so they just blew the whole thing out of the water. All that being said, the Bengals aren't guaranteed anything similar this season, and there's even a chance for a major setback in 2022. There's also the potential for another play...
Road Underdogs Are Historically Very Profitable In Week 1
If you are a casual bettor, then you probably bet your favorite team a lot, or maybe the favorite because they are certain to destroy that bad team on the road, right? Well, you would certainly be wrong about doing any of those things, especially in Week 1 of the NFL season, where road teams and underdogs have historically thrived. Last season alone, you had some really insane final scores that netted sportsbooks huge money, as underdogs pulled through in 10 of the 16 total matchups in 2021. If you had bet $100 on the underdog in every game in Week 1 of last season, you would be up $600 ove...
3 Potential Underachieving NFL Teams For 2022
Every year the NFL has some semblance of a "worst to first" team. Last year was an extreme example with the Cincinnati Bengals going to the Super Bowl, but that type of turnaround isn't anything new for the league. There's also the other end of the spectrum -- teams that take major steps back and fail to live up to expectations. There's a few candidates heading into the 2022 NFL season, we just have to go below the surface if we're trying to predict a falloff, and that's something that's never easy of course If we look at teams that have win totals of at least 9, meaning they'd be expected ...
NFL Week 1: Early Bet To Make Right Now
It is never too early to start betting on NFL games, and with the recent schedule release, sportsbooks have started posting odds on Week 1 games. The season may be months out, but this is one of the most advantageous times to bet on the games since money has not poured in quite yet. You can find early lines that may be wrong or a bit off, and that can really give you an advantage as we draw closer to Week 1. A bet that stood out to me right away when looking through DraftKings' odds was the New York Giants +6.5 points against the Tennessee Titans at +100 odds. There are a few reasons why I li...

How To Bet Broncos' 2022 Regular Season Win Total
The Denver Broncos made a monumental blockbuster trade this off-season with the acquisition of former Seattle Seahawks superstar QB Russell Wilson, who comes in with some of the highest expectations we have seen in a while. Their win total is currently sitting at 10.5 games, which is one of the highest numbers in the league. Denver hasn't made the playoffs since they won the Super Bowl in Peyton Manning's final season six years ago, so the franchise is hungry to get back into the postseason, and they hope this move can deliver them those results. With guys like Trevor Siemian, Case Keenum, ...
Commanders' Draft Class Won't Make Or Break Season
The NFL Draft is rooted in hope. Hope for players who get to realize their dreams. Hope for fans who think a strong draft could mean a change of fortune in the upcoming season. Even hope for front offices that at least a couple of their picks will be a hit. All of this rings an emotional bell for just about everyone, leading to overreaction and absolutely no room for middle ground when opinions surrounding the draft class start pouring in. This is clearly the case if you spent about five seconds scrolling through Commanders Twitter. Luckily, the artists formerly known as the Football Team ...
