Another NFL season awaits us. I say this every year but my advice to anyone is take it easy in the first few weeks. No sport has as many changes year to year and most of our betting choices are going to be made based on what we saw last time around.
I have chosen the New Orleans Saints the last couple of years and been more than a little disappointed by the nature of their exit each time. Time to leave Drew Brees alone this year at around 10/1 and instead my money will be invested in the Philadelphia Eagles to win it all. Kansas City and New England are the two teams I fear most I have had an EW play on Atlanta who if they can keep their defence healthy can have a deep playoff run in January.
Philadelphia Eagles 14/1
Atlanta Falcons 33/1
Team to win Least Games: Detroit Lions 18/1
Saquon Barkley most rushing yards & Julio Jones most receiving yards 33/1 Paddy Power Specials
A few picks for the first game on Thursday night as my Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers in the season opener. I’m expecting my team to regress a little this season having lost one of the best Defensive coaches in the game whilst the general opinion amongst pundits is that under a new head coach, Green Bay will see a resurgent Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay Packers +3 20/21
Geronimo Allison anytime TD 4/1
Sunday is the real start of the NFL season and what I’m most excited about. I will back with a full bag of selections on Saturday and of course be heavily involved in all of the @twopoundpunt leagues on Draft Kings. I hope to beat him there as I always do in Fantasy !
Good luck all.
