Week 1 of the NFL provided us with what we can ask for. We experienced a stimulating matchup between the Texans and Saints, we have some insight about how great the Bears really are, or are not, some??obtained a significant change of heart on Marcus Mariota along with the Titans, and a few teams we believed could be pretty??good might??actually be good — I’m looking at??you personally Ravens and Cowboys.
Coming into the season, a few Futures lines were which gave us a view regarding how the year could unfold. That the Bears were favorites these lines have been corrected.
With the Bears dropping to +325, the Vikings would be the new favorites at +125, followed by the Packers in +150. It’s too early to pinpoint whether or not the Bears could nevertheless be a great team this year, but their schedule does not get any easier with the??Saints, Chargers, Eagles, Rams, Cowboys, Packers at Lambeau, also Chiefs still to playwith. It will be a feat to replicate the 12-win success of the past year Even though the Bears could still have a 10-win season. If you followed Scott Hastings suggestion of taking Bears UNDER 9 wins, then you are off to a good start.
Week 1 overreaction: The Cowboys are going to the Super Bowl! Week 1 reality: The Cowboys might be as great as we believe they are. New Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore may be molding Dak Prescott to a major threat that is pass-heavy. Prescott revealed signs of greatness posting a 78% completion percentage with 405 yards tying a private career-high. His 25 finished passes were to seven distinct receivers, two of which had 100-yard times — Michael Gallup (158 yards) and Amari Cooper (106 yards).
Yes, it had been against the Giants, however if the Cowboys continue to roll like that they did in Week 1, then the Eagles (-150 to win the NFC East) might have??some actual competition. The Cowboys moved from. As they are set up to confront a simpler record of passing guards from the Redskins, Dolphins, Saints, and Jets their schedule for the next few weeks is looking pretty juicy. It’s got to feel great to be holding a??Dallas to make the playoffs (-105) ticket right now.
There was a lot of buzz at the preseason over the Cleveland Browns. A team which has won a combined eight games in the last 3 seasons was the favorite to win the AFC North in +125, followed by the Steelers (+160) along with the Ravens (+325). They disappointed, allowing Marcus Mariota to pass for yards, three??touchdowns and no interceptions, while Baker Mayfield needed a rough opener with three picks.
One of the more fascinating team props prior to the start of the season was Baltimore OVER 8 wins and might have been paired to??create the playoffs. With Week 1 finished, Lamar Jackson and his team move up to favorites to win the division.
The Ravens following five matches look??enticing, since they confront 4-5 teams that were bottom 10 in rushing defense last year, which bodes well for a group stacked with running backs which accounted for 262 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Dolphins. In Week 5, that they do face the Steelers however it will not be a match that is primetime.
A division that is still up in the atmosphere and probably to go week after week. Three of the four teams discovered a reduction in Week 1 with all all the winner being a Tennessee Titans team that was surprising. Not only did they pay since 5.5-point street puppies, however, they won outright, placing a Browns team to shame outscoring them 43-13.
Prior to the year, they were 4th in consideration to acquire the branch at +500 and today find themselves at a significantly??better place at +185 supporting the Texans (+135).
It will be interesting to find out where this year will be gone by this Tennessee group. Mariota is currently in his final year of his rookie deal so inspiration will always be a factor for him separately week .
You can write away these teams:
The Cardinals and Dolphins are the 2 teams most likely to be’fighting’ to make the No. 1 overall draft choice from 2020 so I do not expect much from at least one of these teams listed.
