The Colts under 7.5 is interesting.

The division is strong, but a healthy Luck might be good enough by himself for 8.

I love the Colts under 7.5. I thought the number was lower for them

Totally agree. 5.5 makes more sense. Luck hype. 

 

Also, thanks for reading.

Rest of their roster is a lot of meh.... and I do like Jax, Houston, and even the Titans....   but a healthy Luck gives them a chance pretty much weekly imo. 

I don't know if he is really right, or capable of playing all 16 weeks though.

Explain to me why you think the Redskins are over 7.5. I like the under a decent amount there.

I also really like the Eagles at under 10.5.

Why do you think Washington is worse than last year?

Why do you think Washington is worse than last year?

First and foremost I expect the Giants to be considerably better and the Cowboys to be at least the same 9 win team they were last year. I think the Skins are likely the worst team in that division.


And they were only a 7 win team last year. that would be a loss on O/U 7.5.

They also play the AFC South which is arguably the toughest AFC Divison. Its certainly more balanced than the AFC North or AFC East. Plus they have to play the Packers as their NFC North opponent and play all 4 NFC South teams. Another balanced division. No cakewalks.



Easy under.

Seth has their over/under at 7, which I've seen as well. Either way, your comment strongly implied that they're worse than a 7 win team. If you thought they were that, they'd probably be a stay away at 7.5.

As for why they won't be worse than last year, well I'm not all that optimistic about the team in general, but they are at least as good as they were last year imo. They should be better against the run this year and their O-line likely won't have incredibly bad injury luck again this year. I think they upgraded at receiver since Pryor was a disaster last year and Doctson should improve as an added bonus. I also prefer Smith to Cousins, but that's close.

Plus, last year they played the 4th toughest schedule according to football outsiders. So I doubt their injury and schedule luck will be worse than last year.

As far as the NFC East, I don't share your optimism about the Giants or especially the Cowboys, but regardless, Washington is quite unlikely to be worse than 1-5 in the division, which was their record last year.

All that said, they could easily lose more than 9 games since they're a pretty crappy franchise. However, a season like the last 3 where they averaged 8 wins a year is more likely imo.

7 makes it tougher. I know at one point I saw it at 7.5. Still would take the under but its not the slam dunk it was at 7.5

We disagree on Dallas too. I had them as one of my unders. Don't like them at all. 

 

 

I think the Skins can finish second in the East. We'll see.

But Washington is an easy under so let's remember that Seth.

Week 1 overreactions:

I feel really good about The Buffalo UNDER, The Jets and Redskins OVER, and pretty good about the Dallas UNDER. 

 

Colts might be ok, Luck looked decent, and who the hell knows with Atlanta. 

 

Subject to change.

Good start last week for the Quick hits, winning in College and Pro Football, even though I lost my top game each day with Purdue on Saturday and Tennessee on Sunday. Let's give it another shot, with star ratings.

 

College: +2 YTD

5* Vanderbilt +14.5 vs Notre Dame

5* Washington -6.5 vs Utah

4* South Florida -10 vs Illinois

3* LSU +10 vs Auburn

 

 

NFL: +6 YTD

5* Washington -6 vs Indianapolis

4* LA Rams -12.5 vs Arizona

4* OVER 53 Kansas City/Pittsburgh

3* Detroit +6 vs San Francisco

 

Good luck and enjoy!

Man, be careful with that Det/SF line.

 

Niners looked bad against maybe the best defense in the league and Detroit, well, they were Detroit.

Id also take Minn at anything around a pk or as a dog. Only getting that if Rodgers plays but Rodgers wont be 100% and Minn is maybe the best team in the league
