Week 1 of the NFL supplied us with what we can ask for. We had a thrilling matchup between the Texans and Saints, we got some clarity on how good the Bears really are, or are not, a few obtained a significant change of heart on Marcus Mariota along with the Titans, along with a few teams that we thought would be pretty??good might??really be great — I’m considering you personally Ravens and Cowboys.
Coming into the summer, there were only a Futures lines that gave us an outlook about how the season might unfold. That the Bears were favorites those lines have now been adjusted.
The Vikings would be the new favorites at +125 in +150. It’s too early to pinpoint whether or not the Bears could be a fantastic team this year, but their schedule doesn’t get any simpler with the??Saints, Chargers, Eagles, Rams, Cowboys, Packers at Lambeau, along with Chiefs still to playwith. It is going to be a challenging feat to replicate the 12-win success of last year Even though the Bears could have a 10-win season. In case you followed Scott Hastings hint of shooting Bears UNDER 9 wins, then you are off to a good start.
Week 1 overreaction: The Cowboys are going to the Super Bowl! Week 1 reality: The Cowboys might actually be as great as we believe they are. New Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore may be casting Dak Prescott into a pass-heavy threat that is major. Prescott showed signs of greatness posting a completion percentage with 405 yards passing yards, tying a personal career-high. His 25 completed passes were to seven unique receivers, a couple of which had 100-yard days — Michael Gallup (158 yards) and Amari Cooper (106 yards).
Yes, it was against the Giants, however when the Cowboys remain to roster like they did in Week 1, then the Eagles (-150 to win the NFC East) might have??some true competition. The Cowboys transferred from. Their schedule for the upcoming few months is looking pretty hot as they are set up to face an record of passing guards at Jets, and the Redskins, Dolphins, Saints. It’s got to feel good to be holding a??Dallas to make the playoffs (-105) ticket right about now.
There was so much hype in the preseason over the Cleveland Browns. A group that has won a combined eight games in the previous 3 seasons was the favorite to win the AFC North in +125, followed closely with the Steelers (+160) and the Ravens (+325). They definitely disappointed, permitting Marcus Mariota to maneuver for 248 yards, three??touchdowns and zero interceptions, whereas Baker Mayfield needed a rough opener with three selections.
One of the more intriguing team props prior to the beginning of the season was Baltimore OVER 8 wins and may have been paired to??make the playoffs. With Week 1 finished, his squad along with Lamar Jackson move up to favorites to win the division.
The Ravens following five games seem enticing, as they confront 4-5 teams which were underside 10 in rushing defense this past year, which bodes well for a team piled with running backs which consisted of 262 rushing yards in Week 1 against the Dolphins. In Week 5, they do face the Steelers but it won’t be a match that is primetime.
To move back-and-forth week and A branch that is still up in the atmosphere. Three of those four teams found a loss in Week 1 with the only winner being a Tennessee Titans group that was surprising. Not only did they cover because 5.5-point road puppies, but they won , setting a Browns team to shame outscoring them 43-13.
Prior to the year, they were 4th into consideration to win the division at +500 and now find themselves in a significantly??better place at +185 behind the Texans (+135).
It will be interesting to find out where this Tennessee team will go this season. Mariota is in his final year of his rookie deal so inspiration will be a variable for him week .
You can probably write these teams off:
The Cardinals and Dolphins are the two??teams most likely to be’fighting’ to earn the No. 1 overall draft choice from 2020 so I don’t expect much from one or more of these teams recorded.
