Guttentag! I’m back from Vegas after a 5-3 weekend: hitting Denver under, Packers, Vikings under, Pats under, and Baltimore. Lost the KC under, Dal/Sea teaser (Dalton throw for over 400 yds in Seattle???), and Denver. This year, we’re still doing the picks with the Cookie Monster on Facebook but I’m not giving you all of my picks. I’ll give you some of the ones I really like but I’m saving those for the Patreon account. Yes, I’ve sold out because A) We need seed money to promote Fantasy Football Jibber Jabber and B) I was 61% against the spread last year. I made you a lot of money last year, why the hell can’t I get paid for my services? So for $50 a week, you get my locks of the week. And that money goes right back into Fantasy Football Jibber Jabber. If you want fantasy football advice or we’ll do your DFS game, here is the link for the Patreon info: https://www.patreon.com/fantaryfootballjibberjabber
Venmo me @Kevin-Gootee $50 and I’ll give you my locks of the week. I’ll post the screenshot of my picks from previous week so you can verify that I’m telling the truth. And here are 3 picks I’m liking this week.
Cluster injuries for Chargers. Derwin James out, Mike Williams is a ?, Russel Okun out, and Hunter Henry is out. Chargers 2-4 SU in Det. West coast team coming east for a 1pm game after playing OT on Sunday. Houston 11-4 SU in last 15, 4-1 SU home vs Jax, Jax 1-4 ATS, 2-11 SU, 2-8 SU vs Hou, 1-4 SU in Hou. Detroit also played to a tie against Arizona. Not happy if you’re a Lions fan but happy if you have AZ under 5 for the year as I do! Backup QB Gardner Minshew (perfect name for a yacht club or rowing crew guy) is back under center after looking respectful, albeit against a porous KC defense. Houston just coming off a monday night heartbreaker after losing via the last second field goal shall come home and rebound. If they can’t win by 2 or more, they should bring in Dr Watson from Sherlock Holmes and fire Deshaun Watson.
Teaser: 7 point teaser Houston down to -2 and Detroit +9.5
Because Sam Darnold must have licked a subway pole to get mono or he’s making out with women on the Hampton Jitney, I’m taking the Brownies. If Baker Mayfield wants to earn some of that hype, he better win and cover after getting blown out. Some stats to back up my argument. Jets are 2-8-1 in last 11 and 1-10 SU. Jets 4-11-1 vs AFC. Jets 6/9 under VS Cle and 6/9 in September and 4/6 on a Monday. Just remember, all Odell Beckham Jr has to do is take that 350k watch and reflect the stadium lights into the eyes of the CB in front of him.
Atlanta is 9-1 SU in week 2 games. Big fact. Atlanta got embarrassed last week against Minnesota (had the under, you’re welcome) and now they’re home. Yes 2-5 at home and 2-7 ATS but the Eagles lost Malik Jackson and rallied to beat the Skins. BUT PHILLY JUST LET CASE KEENUM THROW FOR 385 YDS AGAINST THEM. Teasing up the Falcons to 8 is a key number and I highly doubt they lose by more than a TD. Denver up to 8.5 because who knows the Bears better than Vic Fangio? Den 6-0 SU vs NFC north. Trubisky in Denver? No thank you.
6 points teaser: Den to +8.5, ATL to +8.
