Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:
Play It Safe (4-1): Rams vs. CAR
Carolina canned their coach and defensive coordinator and maybe that gives the team a bit of a wake up call, but the talent advantage here heavily favors the Rams. This has the makings of a get-healthy game for LA.
Out on a Limb (1-4): Ravens at NYG
Going with the Ravens on the road versus a team that has just one loss through five weeks is ballsy. However, I think the matchup favors the Ravens and moreover I think the Giants’ success is a bit of a mirage.
THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIALS
Look for my “Against the Spread” plays in a separate article that will run each Saturday this season. Here I will look at my Thursday night betting recommendation.
$110 – Under 38 (DraftKings -110)
Season total: (3-2 on season; +$90 season total – won last week w/Under 48)
I jumped off my “play the under on Thursday night” soap box last week and the result was a game without a single touchdown. Let’s get back to normal here and lay the under 38 in this contest. The Bears love to run the ball and the Commanders are dealing with injuries to some key offensive cogs and that makes me feel better about this bet.
Same Game Parlay Prop Bet (DraftKings)
$20 to win $110 (+550)
Season total: (+$10)
- Bears Under 21.5 points
- Over 29.5 ReYd Darnell Mooney
- 45+ ReYd Terry McLaurin
- Over 54.5 RuYd David Montgomery
