These Rams are legit

 

Many NFL aficionados were really low on the Rams coming into this season. Their coach was as young as some of the players, they hadn’t proven they could succeed and entertain the LA market, and their young quarterback looked for all intents and purposes like a bust.

 

Well what a difference an offseason and an overdue coach firing makes. These Rams are legit. Goff and coach McVay have worked wonders together.

 

Let’s not overcomplicate things. This team has a good defence, a stud running back in Gurley, an exciting receiving corps in Woods and Watkins and the general play of Goff in McVay’s system has been outstanding.

 

What to do with this info? Treat the Rams as a proper playoff team. Don’t think that what the Rams have displayed is a fluke. They have a sustainable recipe and should be given consideration as a ‘Bet on’ team moving forward.

 

 

Green Bay is a hot mess

 

Green Bay backers would’ve felt at ease with Friday’s result as the Packers dispatched the Bears 35-14 at Lambeau Field.

 

However, I wouldn’t feel too confident Packer lovers, the Pack is certainly not back. The Bears gifted that game on a silver platter. Chicago’s 4 turnovers pretty much burnt Bears and under bettors.

 

Look at what Green Bay has done recently. They needed overtime to beat the Bengals and were outgained in yards by the Bears. Through most of the game.

 

The Packers have their flaws and because the public loves to bet them they will likely be a bet against commodity at least over the coming weeks.

 

 What to do with this info? Look to back the opposition of the Pack. The Packers will get a lot of public money as per usual. The + lines against them could offer great betting value.

 

 

Tom Brady is a robot.

 

Well maybe not actually, but he’s as close as you can find to one outside of a Terminator movie. Surely at 40 years old and being in the league as long as he had we would see some regression.

 

The New England Patriots have proven that they have unequivocally the worst defence in the National Football League.

 

Tom Brady is like foundation (the make-up). When New England uses it, they cover up their imperfections and look pretty. Foundation gives a woman confidence just like Brady’s last minute touchdown in the Houston game gave punters. Looking forward I think it’s time to take New England’s hefty lines with a grain of salt.

 

What to do with this info? Look to pick off low Patriots totals with over bets. Also look to find value playing against the Pats given how leaky their defence is and the public money that would be on them.
