Week 1 of the NFL provided us with everything we can ask for. We experienced a thrilling matchup between the Texans and Saints, we got some clarity on how great the Bears are, or aren’t, a few received a substantial change of heart on Marcus Mariota along with the Titans, and a couple of teams we thought could be quite good might??really be good — I am considering you personally Ravens and Cowboys.
Coming into the year, only a few Futures lines were which gave us an outlook regarding how the year could unfold. By way of instance, the Bears were favorites those lines have been adjusted.
The Vikings will be the favorites in +125, in +150 followed with the Packers, with the Bears dropping to +325. It is too early to pinpoint whether or not the Bears could still be a excellent team this year, but their program does not get any easier with the??Saints, Chargers, Eagles, Rams, Cowboys, Packers in Lambeau, and Chiefs still to play. It is going to be a effort to replicate a year’s 12-win achievement though the Bears could have a 10-win season. Then you are off to a good start In case you followed Scott Hastings hint of taking Bears UNDER 9 wins.
Week 1 overreaction: The Cowboys are going to the Super Bowl! Week 1 reality: The Cowboys may be as great as we think they are. New Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore may be casting Dak Prescott to a threat that is major. Prescott revealed signs of greatness submitting a 78% completion percentage with 405 yards tying a private career-high. His 25 completed passes were to seven unique receivers, two of which had 100-yard days — Michael Gallup (158 yards) and Amari Cooper (106 yards).
Yes, it had been against the Giants, however if the Cowboys continue to roll just like they did in Week 1, then the Eagles (-150 to win the NFC East) could have??some actual competition. The Cowboys moved from. As they’re set up to confront an record of passing defenses at the Redskins, Dolphins, Saints, and Jets their schedule for the upcoming few months is looking pretty hot. It’s got to feel good to be holding a??Dallas to make the playoffs (-105) ticket right now.
There was so much buzz at the preseason within the Cleveland Browns. A team which has won a combined eight games in the last few seasons has been the favorite to win the AFC North at +125, followed closely by the Steelers (+160) along with the Ravens (+325). They definitely disappointed, letting Marcus Mariota to pass for yards, three??touchdowns and zero interceptions, while Baker Mayfield needed a rough opener with three picks.
Among the more fascinating team props prior to the onset of the season was Baltimore OVER 8 wins and might have been paired with the Ravens to??make the playoffs. With Week 1 Lamar Jackson and his squad move up to favorites to win the division.
The Ravens next five matches look??enticing, since they face 4-5 teams that were bottom 10 in rushing defense this past year, which bodes well for a team piled with running backs which accounted for 262 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Dolphins. In Week 5, the Steelers are faced by them but it won’t be a match that is primetime.
A branch that is up in the atmosphere and likely to move week after week. Three of the four groups found a reduction in Week 1 with the only winner being a Tennessee Titans team. Not only did they cover because 5.5-point road dogs, however, they won , setting a Browns team to shame outscoring them 43-13.
Before this season, they were 4th into consideration to win the branch at +500 and now find themselves in a significantly??better place at +185 supporting the Texans (+135).
It’ll be intriguing to see where this season will be gone by this Tennessee staff. Mariota is in his final season of his rookie deal so motivation will probably be a factor for him separately week .
You can write off these teams:
The Cardinals and Dolphins will be the 2 teams likely to be’fighting’ to make the No. 1 overall draft selection from 2020 therefore I do not expect much from any of these teams listed.
