Just a huge sports fan who got his start playing fantasy football with his Dad. Love talking about sports and sharing my thoughts with other enthusiastic fans. All my favorite teams come from L.A. and Duke University. Go Blue Devils!

It feels like Christmas morning when the odds on NFL win totals come out.  Football is the best sport to bet win totals on because it is only a 16, I mean 17 game season.  That means every game counts, and a single uncharacteristic game can bust a bet.  It’s also the most accurate indicator of expectations for each team going into the season.  To celebrate the glory of NFL win totals being released, here are my favorite, and least favorite numbers.

Arizona Cardinals: 8 Wins (Over)

Is this some sort of sick joke?  Is there a conspiracy to make me look like a fool.  I recently wrote an entire article about how sexy of a bet the Cardinals are after their offseason moves.  They got a lot better, and their star players are primed to make the leap into superstardom.  They went 8-8 last year!  Do you really think they’re going to go 8-9 this year?  No.  If you want to learn more about why the Cardinals get me so jacked up, please read what I wrote about them.  For now, just take the over and cook yourself a cash omelet for breakfast.

Carolina Panthers: 7.5 Wins (Under)

Everyone take a moment and think about this.  Kyler Murray is the QB for the Cardinals.  Sam, “draft bust” Darnold is now the QB of the Panthers.  AND YET, NFL win totals have them only separated by 0.5!  This should show you how much of an opportunity you have to make money betting on these.  Last year the Panthers went 5-11.  The year before, they went 5-11! 

Darnold is right in the same wheelhouse as Bridgewater, and may even be a downgrade.  Yes, they get Christian McCaffrey back.  Yes, the defense is very young.  But bad quarterback play kills you.  It just does.  After two 5 win seasons, I can’t see them hitting the 7.5 mark with Darnold at the helm.  I would take the under and expect a 6, MAYBE 7 win season at the most.

Cleveland Browns: 9.5 Wins (Over)

Do. You. BELIEVE?  I do.  After being the laughing stock of the NFL for years and drafting professional partier Johnny Manziel, the Browns have arrived.  With Baker Mayfield at the helm, this team went to the playoffs, Tik Tok danced all over JuJu and the Steelers (sorry Pittsburgh fans), and came pretty close to beating the Chiefs!  Oh, did I mention they went 11-5?  And who did they lose this offseason?  No one.  If anything, they got back Odell Beckham Jr. from an injury. 

Yes, he may be traded.  But if he is, the Browns will address other needs, hopefully at the linebacker position.  And if he’s not, then he will serve as another elite weapon for Mayfield.  The O-line is one of the best in the league.  So is the running game.  Myles Garrett will be a DPOY candidate all season, and the young secondary will likely up their game.  This team is better than they were last year, and the Ravens are the only threat in the division.  I expect an 11 win season, and could easily see 12 happening.

Jacksonville Jaguars: 6.5 Wins (Under)

This is all Trevor Lawrence hype.  That’s all it is.  6.5 wins?  Are you kidding me?  They only won one game this season.  ONE.  They don’t even deserve a participation trophy.  I know Trevor Lawrence is expected to come into the NFL like Thanos and snap opponents into dust, but it’s not gonna happen this quick.  This team had the second worst defense, and third worst offense last season. 

One guy with amazing hair isn’t going to change that.  And they didn’t add enough in free agency to make a significant difference either.  This team has a super bright future but they are so young and inexperienced.  The weak offensive line is going to bother Lawrence, as will the lack of weapons on the outside.  I’m thinking more in the 4-5 win range, and even 6 would still be a successful under bet.

Dallas Cowboys: 9.5 Wins (Over)

I am putting myself directly in the crossfire with this pick.  The single worst thing you can do when writing about sports is hype up the Dallas Cowboys.  But screw it, I got Dak fever!  Prescott is a monster.  In the four games he started and finished last season, the Boys averaged 32 points per game.  Dak threw for 1,700 yards and 9 touchdowns in those games

This offense, when healthy, is dominant.  And that’s the key, health.  The offensive line was super banged up last year.  They get Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, and La’el Collins back.  Zeke will have a bounce-back year.  The receiving corps is one of the best in the league, and Ceedee Lamb is only getting better.  They will be one of the best offensive units in the league from top to bottom.

The defense is a question mark.  It sucked last year.  Really sucked.  But I’m optimistic.  The defense was awesome in 2018, and a lot of the key pieces are still there.  Jaylon Smith, Leighton Vander Esch, and Demarcus Lawrence are still on the roster.  They added Keanu Neal in free agency, and Trevon Diggs is a promising young corner.  On paper, this unit seems solid and I expect them to go defense with the 10th overall pick and beef it up even more.  The offense will be awesome, and the defense has to be better.  I know this team gets a lot of hype every year, but I really think they will finally put it together.

  • Another thing I have really noticed is the fact that for many people, less-than-perfect credit is the consequence of circumstances past their control. As an example they may be really saddled with an illness and as a consequence they have more bills for collections. It would be due to a job loss or even the inability to work. Sometimes separation and divorce can truly send the financial situation in an opposite direction. Thanks for sharing your notions on this blog site.

  • I would like to add if you do not surely have an insurance policy or maybe you do not belong to any group insurance, you will well gain from seeking the assistance of a health agent. Self-employed or people having medical conditions ordinarily seek the help of a health insurance dealer. Thanks for your blog post.

  • I just like the valuable info you provide on your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check once more right here frequently. I’m somewhat certain I will be informed plenty of new stuff right right here! Best of luck for the following!

  • I have figured out some new elements from your web site about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that computer systems have become something that each household must have for some reasons. They supply you with convenient ways to organize households, pay bills, shop, study, listen to music and in many cases watch tv shows. An innovative way to complete these types of tasks is with a mobile computer. These pcs are mobile, small, highly effective and mobile.

  • Thanks for discussing your ideas here. The other thing is that whenever a problem takes place with a computer system motherboard, persons should not have some risk associated with repairing it themselves for if it is not done correctly it can lead to irreparable damage to the full laptop. It is almost always safe just to approach any dealer of that laptop for your repair of that motherboard. They have technicians who have an skills in dealing with notebook computer motherboard complications and can make right diagnosis and conduct repairs.

The sketch is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an impatience over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this hike.

  • I’ve learned new things out of your blog post. One other thing to I have found is that usually, FSBO sellers will probably reject people. Remember, they’d prefer to not use your products and services. But if you maintain a stable, professional connection, offering guide and staying in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a meeting. From there, a listing follows. Thank you

  • In this grand scheme of things you actually secure a B+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually confused me was first in the details. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more accurate here. Having said that, let me reveal to you precisely what did do the job. Your article (parts of it) is definitely very persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can see a jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily sure of just how you appear to connect your points that help to make the actual final result. For now I will yield to your position but trust in the near future you actually connect the dots better.

  • Based on my study, after a the foreclosure home is bought at a bidding, it is common with the borrower to still have the remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage. There are many loan merchants who aim to have all fees and liens repaid by the upcoming buyer. Having said that, depending on specific programs, legislation, and state laws there may be a number of loans that aren’t easily settled through the switch of financial loans. Therefore, the duty still rests on the client that has had his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this site.

  • I have observed that sensible real estate agents everywhere you go are Advertising. They are realizing that it’s more than merely placing a sign post in the front yard. It’s really pertaining to building interactions with these traders who at some time will become buyers. So, once you give your time and energy to helping these vendors go it alone – the “Law regarding Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.

  • Another issue is really that video gaming became one of the all-time most significant forms of entertainment for people of all ages. Kids participate in video games, and adults do, too. The actual XBox 360 has become the favorite games systems for individuals that love to have a huge variety of games available to them, and who like to play live with other folks all over the world. Thanks for sharing your thinking.

  • Thanks for your post. I would love to say that the health insurance dealer also works for the benefit of the coordinators of the group insurance policies. The health insurance broker is given a long list of benefits searched for by anyone or a group coordinator. What a broker can is find individuals or maybe coordinators which in turn best match those desires. Then he gifts his recommendations and if each party agree, this broker formulates a binding agreement between the two parties.

  • Thanks for another informative site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such a perfect way? I have a project that I am just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such information.

  • Another thing I have really noticed is always that for many people, low credit score is the result of circumstances outside of their control. For example they may be actually saddled having an illness and as a consequence they have large bills going to collections. It would be due to a work loss and the inability to go to work. Sometimes divorce or separation can truly send the finances in an opposite direction. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this site.

  • I have seen loads of useful items on your web-site about personal computers. However, I have the view that laptop computers are still not nearly powerful adequately to be a sensible choice if you frequently do jobs that require loads of power, including video editing. But for world-wide-web surfing, microsoft word processing, and quite a few other frequent computer functions they are just great, provided you cannot mind the small screen size. Thanks for sharing your notions.

  • I have observed that in unwanted cameras, special receptors help to {focus|concentrate|maintain focus|target|a**** automatically. The particular sensors regarding some video cameras change in contrast, while others utilize a beam with infra-red (IR) light, especially in low lighting. Higher standards cameras often use a combination of both programs and likely have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ a face and focus only in that. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this blog site.

  • Thanks for giving your ideas with this blog. Likewise, a misconception regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about foreclosures is that the traditional bank will not getreceive my repayments. There is a specific amount of time that the bank can take payments here and there. If you are far too deep inside the hole, they may commonly desire that you pay the particular payment in whole. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of repayments at all. When you and the bank can be capable to work a thing out, a foreclosure process may cease. However, in case you continue to miss out on payments under the new system, the foreclosed process can just pick up where it left off.

  • I am grateful for your post. I would really like to comment that the tariff of car insurance differs from one plan to another, mainly because there are so many different facets which bring about the overall cost. For example, the brand name of the vehicle will have a significant bearing on the price. A reliable older family vehicle will have a more affordable premium than a flashy fancy car.

  • Great article. It’s very unfortunate that over the last several years, the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, along with the first ever real global economic collapse. Through everthing the industry has really proven to be effective, resilient plus dynamic, acquiring new ways to deal with adversity. There are always fresh troubles and opportunities to which the business must just as before adapt and act in response.

Thanks for your write-up.

  • Thanks for this excellent article. Yet another thing to mention is that nearly all digital cameras arrive equipped with any zoom lens that enables more or less of the scene to be included through ‘zooming’ in and out. Most of these changes in {focus|focusing|concentration|target|the a**** length are reflected inside viewfinder and on massive display screen at the back of the exact camera.

It’s on the list of easiest computer upgrade procedures one can envision. Thanks for discussing your ideas.
