Week 1 of the NFL supplied us with what we can ask for. We had a stimulating matchup between the Texans and Saints, we got some insight about how good the Bears really are, or are not, a few obtained a substantial change of heart on Marcus Mariota and the Titans, and a couple of teams we thought would be quite good might??actually be good — I am studying you personally Ravens and Cowboys.
Coming into the season, only a few Futures lines were which gave us a view regarding how the season could unfold. For instance, the Bears were favorites those lines have been adjusted.
With the Bears falling to +325 the Vikings would be the favorites at +125, followed with the Packers at +150. It’s too early to pinpoint whether the Bears could nevertheless be a fantastic team this season, but their schedule does not get any easier with the??Saints, Chargers, Eagles, Rams, Cowboys, Packers at Lambeau, and also Chiefs nevertheless to perform with. It will be a tough effort to replicate the 12-win achievement of last year, Even though the Bears could nevertheless have a 10-win year. Then you’re off to a good start, In case you followed Scott Hastings suggestion of taking Bears UNDER 9 wins.
Week 1 overreaction: The Cowboys are going to the Super Bowl! Week 1 truth: The Cowboys may actually be as great as we think they are. New Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore could be molding Dak Prescott into a major threat that is pass-heavy. Prescott revealed signs of greatness submitting a 78% completion percentage with 405 yards tying a career-high that was personal. His 25 completed passes were to seven distinct receivers, two of which’d 100-yard days — Michael Gallup (158 yards) and Amari Cooper (106 yards).
Yes, it was against the Giants, but if the Cowboys continue to roll like they did in Week 1, then the Eagles (-150 to win the NFC East) could have??some true competition. The Cowboys moved to from +140. Their schedule for the next few weeks is looking pretty hot as they’re set up to confront an slate of passing defenses in Jets, and the Redskins, Dolphins, Saints. It’s got to feel great to be holding a??Dallas to make the playoffs (-105) ticket right about now.
There was a lot of buzz at the preseason over the Cleveland Browns. A team that has won a combined eight games in the previous 3 seasons has been your favorite to win the AFC North at +125, followed closely by the Steelers (+160) and the Ravens (+325). They disappointed, letting Marcus Mariota to pass for yards, three??touchdowns and no interceptions, whereas Baker Mayfield had a demanding opener with three selections.
Among the more intriguing team props prior to the onset of the season was Baltimore OVER 8 wins and may have been paired together with the Ravens to??make the playoffs. With Week 1 finished, Lamar Jackson along with his squad proceed up to favorites to win the division at EVEN.
The Ravens following five games seem enticing, as they face 4-5 teams that were underside 10 in rushing defense this past year, which bodes well for a group piled with running backs which accounted for 262 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Dolphins. In Week 5, they do face the Steelers however it won’t be a primetime game.
A branch that’s still up in the air and likely to go after week. Three of those four teams found a reduction in Week 1 being a surprising Tennessee Titans team. Not only did they pay since 5.5-point street puppies, however, they won outright, setting a Browns team to pity outscoring them 43-13.
Before this year, they have been 4th in consideration to win the division at +500 and find themselves in a better place at +185 supporting the Texans (+135).
It is going to be intriguing to find out where this Tennessee team will go this year. Mariota is currently in his final season of his rookie contract therefore inspiration will likely always be a factor for him week after week.
You can write off these teams:
The Cardinals and Dolphins are the 2 teams likely to be’fighting’ to earn the No. 1 overall draft pick from 2020 therefore that I don’t expect much from one of these teams recorded.
