2019 NFL Week 2 Predictions



Aaron Rodgers hosts the Minnesota Vikings. Last year these teams played a tie at Lambeau Field in week 2.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: September 12, 2019.



Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-1-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Week 1 is in the books. Jason Bantle went 14-2 in week 1. Oren Shiri went 13-3 in week 1. Tanya Holmes and myself are both 12-4. Jesse Lucas is 11-5 to begin the season. That's just for straight up pickem. I'm 7-9 against the spread in the 100th NFL Season despite being 12-4 straight up in pickem games. I'll post weekly updates of our pool on Draft Utopia for pickem as well as my ATS numbers.


You can post pickem predictions on my Facebook timeline for a chance to win giftcards and other cool prizes in the event that you post a perfect week. Adrian Amos ruined everyones shot at a perfect week last Thursday with his game-winning interception since everyone picked Chicago.



Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay can win this game if Jameis Winston plays smart. Winston has two reliable receiving targets in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. He also has two tight ends in Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard. Both teams made the transition to a 3-4 defense last week so I expect a lot scoring in this game from both teams.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Quarterback Cam Newton and running back Christian McCaffrey face one of the leagues weaker defenses. Wide receiver D.J. Moore and tight end Greg Olsen may light it up in this game too.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $20 dollars, the maximum bet is $290 dollars with the average gambler betting around $265 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 50 points. I am going with Carolina to win and to cover with the over.


Final Score Panthers 34 Buccaneers 27

Baltimore Ravens 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick

Listen to "DRAFT UTOPIA" on Spreaker.

Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Kyler Murray does not have to worry about Jimmy Smith. Without Jimmy Smith or Tavon Young at cornerback, I feel like Arizona can do enough to score on Baltimore. Arizona is better than people realize. Terrell Suggs is returning to Baltimore and David Johnson may do well since he will not have to worry about C.J. Mosley.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Lamar Jackson dominated against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. He will face Byron Murphy and Tremaine Brock. If Ronnie Stanley at left tackle, Marques "Hollywood" Brown at wide receiver, and Mark Ingram at running back all ball out like they did in week 1 in Baltimore's home opener, then the Ravens will win this contest by at least two touchdowns.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 13.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $550 dollars, the maximum bet is $800 dollars with the average gambler betting around $675 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47 points. I am going with Baltimore to win and to cover with the over.

Dallas Cowboys 1-0-0
Versus
Washington Redskins 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 50-34 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year six as the Dallas Cowboys GM with a 2-3 record in the Playoffs after winning a playoff game in his first year as a GM.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? If you can outplay Case Keenum without demanding a trade like Trent Williams without demanding a contract extension that would be great.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dak Prescott has a lethal offensive line just like Carson Wentz. Ezekiel Elliott along with the offensive line got their paydays. Left tackle Tyron Smith, left guard Connor Williams, center Travis Frederick, right guard Zack Martin, and right tackle La'El Collins can all make things difficult for Washington's defense. Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, and tight end Jason Witten give Dallas the playmakers to dominate this game.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Even with Trent Williams out at left tackle the Redskins do not have to worry about 4-3 right end Robert Quinn. That will make things easier for Washington's offense led by quarterback Case Keenum. Dallas should win, but Washington may cover the point spread.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46.5 points. I am going with Dallas to win and Washington to cover with the under.


Final Score Cowboys 23 Redskins 21

Indianapolis Colts 0-1-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2020 NFL Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute. So far there are 6 full games on Bitchute. I also posted a film cut of Oregon QB Justin Herbert on our Youtube Channel.




Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Jacoby Brissett will start his second game in the post Andrew Luck era. He will not have his number two receiver in Devin Funchess. Parris Campbell will really need to step up. Also Justin Houston will be matching up against Dennis Kelly who gave up 2 sacks to Myles Garrett. Houston got a sack versus the backup to Russell Okung last week so he will get at least 1 or 2 sacks and should be pressuring Marcus Mariota throughout the game.


Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Marcus Mariota has A.J. Brown next to Corey Davis on the outside. Mariota has two big targets next to him for the first time in his career along with Delanie Walker back at tight end. Cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan did phenomenal versus Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry really frustrating Baker Mayfield. These corners will have to deal with a worse quarterback and weaker receivers which is one reason why I love the Titans. Jack Conklin does not have to face Jabaal Sheard either.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $155 dollars, the maximum bet is $175 dollars with the average gambler betting around $165 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I am going with Tennessee to win and to cover with the under.


Final Score Titans 24 Colts 20

Seattle Seahawks 1-0-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We just updated our board on Fanspeak. Check out our monthly updates on Fanspeak for more awesome content.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle heads into Pittsburgh with a narrow win over Cincinnati. Pete Carroll is competitive enough to push Mike Tomlin to the limit.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh got embarassed in New England. You have to think the Steelers will do enough to rebound in their home opener. Their pass rushing tandem of Bud Dupree and T.J. Watt is lethal enough to get pressure on Russell Wilson.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 4 point favorite. The minimum bet is $175 dollars, the maximum bet is $205 dollars with the average gambler betting around $190 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46.5 points. I am going with Pittsburgh to win and to cover with the under.


Final Score Steelers 30 Seahawks 14

Buffalo Bills 1-0-0
Versus
New York Giants 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted my second 2020 NFL Mock Draft which is now two rounds. Click the link to check it out and let me know what you think.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Josh Allen is playing in the exact same location where he played in week 1 when Buffalo defeated the New York Jets. Devin Singletary should have another strong game as a rookie running back. Buffalo has a strong defense that can limit what the New York Giants do offensively. Buffalo should do just enough to win this game.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Eli Manning goes back to New York for their home opener. Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram need to step up like they did in week 1 in order for New York to win this game.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $130 dollars with the average gambler betting around $120 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5 points. I am going with Buffalo to win and New York to cover with the under.

San Francisco 49ers 1-0-0
Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I may make a 2020 NFL Draft Game at some point in the future. I am doing a lot of re-coding with content as well as film cuts for our site and our Youtube channel.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Richard Sherman did well at field cornerback versus Tampa Bay. He does not have to deal with A.J. Green. Dee Ford and Nick Bosa do not have to deal with Jonah Williams or Cordy Glenn. Jimmy Garoppolo needs to limit the turnovers if he wants to defeat Andy Dalton.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: If Andy Dalton does what he did in week 1 then Cincinnati should win. Joe Mixon will need a big day on the ground in order for Cincinnati to win.


Prediction: Cincinnati enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $125 dollars with the average gambler betting around $115 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I am going with San Francisco to win and to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Philip Rivers heads to Detroit with Keenan Allen as his go-to-guy. Mike Williams got injured against the Colts. Melvin Gordon's holdout continues. Nick Bosa and Melvin Ingram can give Stafford little time in the pocket.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford balled out in Arizona despite horrible coaching by Matt Patricia. Now he gets a home game against the Chargers. If left tackle Taylor Decker and right tackle Ricky Wagner do their jobs than Detroit can win this game.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48 points. I am going with Los Angeles to win and to cover with the over.

Minnesota Vikings 1-0-0
Versus
Green Bay Packers 1-0-0




Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota has Dalvin Cook who can run for 100 rushing yards versus Green Bay just like he did versus Atlanta in week 1.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Stefon Diggs missed week 1 with an injury. I honestly cannot see Minnesota beating Green Bay without Diggs in Green Bay. Jaire Alexander, Tramon Williams, and Kevin King will keep Kirk Cousins targets in check. Aaron Rodgers faces a tough Minnesota defense. Left tackle David Bahktiari and right tackle Bryan Bulaga had their work cut out for them versus a really skilled Chicago Bears defense. If those offensive tackles keep Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter in check.


Prediction: Green Bay enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $135 dollars, the maximum bet is $155 dollars with the average gambler betting around $145 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I am going with Green Bay to win and to cover with the over.

Jacksonville Jaguars 0-1-0
Versus
Houston Texans 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We'll have 2020 draft games for the NHL, NBA, MLB, and MLS as well as the NFl. I'll post links to those when they are up.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Gardner Minshew II is making his first career start in Houston. Jacksonville did not have Cam Robinson their starting left tackle or Cedric Ogbuhei their starting right tackle. The earliest Nick Foles will return is week 11. Leonard Fournette will need to carry this offense in order for Jacksonville to win.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson faces a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defensive line. Houston has three receivers DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and Kenny Stills versus Jacksonville's two corners Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye. Laremy Tunsil can be an effective blindside even though he gave up a sack to Trey Hendrickson last week.


Prediction: Houston enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $130 dollars, the maximum bet is $150 dollars with the average gambler betting around $140 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I am going with Houston to win and to cover with the over.

New England Patriots 1-0-0
Versus
Miami Dolphins 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets from week 1 in the NFL.



Yes, this offense is other worldly. If Gronkowski comes back this team is the best in the NFL.




Wow. That's actually pretty damn savage. You just beat Pittsburgh by 30 without Brown.




Gronkowski may return in week 14. My brother had the nerve to call Gronkowski a cheesedick. We deserve to watch Gronkowski Gronk Smash his way to another Super Bowl.




Maybe we will score 69 points on the Dolphins in week 2. Get it! Nevermind.




Jamie Collins balled out in relief of Kyle Van Noy. I saw you even tweet about that.



Why the New England Patriots Will Win: This offense will do even more. This is Antonio Brown's debut and his lawyer is in Miami. Also the person who accused Antonio Brown of rape will not meet with the NFL until next week so Brown should be playing next to Julian Edelman. Brady will have a field day with Brown and Edelman after what Baltimore did to Miami last week. This defense should be able to keep Miami in check too.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami traded Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills. Also Kyle Van Noy will be back after last week. I think New England will be just as good perhaps even better than last week. Miami usually pushes New England at home, but the Dolphins are tanking for Tua while New England is going all out for ring number seven. I love the Patriots in this game for this reason.


Prediction: New England enters as a 19 point favorite. The minimum bet is $1,200 dollars, the maximum bet is $3,000 dollars with the average gambler betting around $2,100 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51 points. I am going with New England to win and to cover with the under.

Kansas City Chiefs 1-0-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson defeated Alabama once again in the Championship game thanks to the man with a mullet Trevor Lawrence. Hillary is crazy about is hair Yahoo man. Dabo Sweeney has surpassed Nick Saban as the biggest pimp in College Football





  2. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson. Nick Saban is the second biggest pimp in College Football.





  3. Georgia

    Georgia has Jake Fromm and DeAndre Swift. This team will have one of the best offenses in the FBS. WOOF WOOF!





  4. Oklahoma

    Lincoln Riley has coached two Heisman winning quarterbacks. He may have a third consecutive quarterback in Jalen Hurts a former prostitute of Nick Saban. Coach Riley is keeping his pimp hand strong at the quarterback position.






Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Even without Tyreek Hill, Kansas City should still win. Oakland does not have Gareon Conley as I honestly believe he's the only cornerback on this roster who can limit what Sammy Watkins does. I think Mahomes will ball out with Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce once again even without Tyreek Hill due to the absence of Conley at cornerback. Oakland won against Denver because Denver did not have JuWuan James at right tackle. Kansas City has Eric Fisher at left tackle and Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle. The running back combination of Damian Williams and LeSean McCoy could be pretty lethal as well.


Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Oakland has Derek Carr as their quarterback. Running back Josh Jacobs is capable of getting 100 rushing yards on this defense. If he tops his strong debut with the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football, then Oakland just may win this game. Clellin Ferrell may do enough to win this game defensively at 4-3 right end for Oakland.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 8 point favorite. The minimum bet is $310 dollars, the maximum bet is $390 dollars with the average gambler betting around $350 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 52 points. I am going with Kansas City to win and Oakland to cover with the over.

New Orleans Saints 1-0-0
Versus
Los Angeles Rams 1-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Saints VS Rams game. Here is an archive of their other episodes.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Drew Brees has the turmoil and blood in his eyes from last years NFC Championship Game. I expect New Orleans to play with much more intensity than the Los Angeles Rams. Guys like Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, Jared Cook Jr. and this stout offensive line with Terron Armstead at left tackle, Andrus Peat at left guard, Erik McCoy at center, Larry Warford at right guard, and Ryan Ramczyk at right tackle give the Saints enough offensive firepower to overwhelm the Los Angeles Rams. Marshon Lattimore and P.J. Williams have to play better after missing assignments versus the Houston Texans.


Why Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Los Angeles has a ton of weapons for Jared Goff to throw to. I'm talking about premium starters and backups on the offensive side of the ball. Los Angeles could easily win this game if they win the turnover battle against the New Orleans Saints.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 52.5 points. I am going with New Orleans to win and cover with the over.

Chicago Bears 0-1-0
Versus
Denver Broncos 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Gangster Squad 1-0

    I ended up exceeding expectations in week 1 with a 207.74-148.06 win. Evan Engram was tight end one in Fantasy this week and I drafted him. I love this roster because I used keepers on Drew Brees and Matt Ryan in a two QB League. Also I got Tom Brady in the ninth round and just picked up Case Keenum to replace Nick Foles off the waiver wire. I spent my first two draft picks on running backs with David Johnson and Dalvin Cook anchoring my backfield. My wide receivers consisted of Kenny Golladay, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jarvis Landry. I still put together a huge day in Fantasy even without A.J. Green or N'Keal Harry who are both on my bench at the moment due to injuries. Right now I'm 1-0 and have a chance to put Commissioner Jason Bantle in a gorge if I defeat the Chosen Ones, last years runner up for Bantle Bowl IV in week 2. I drafted boom or bust players last year so I'd have enough pieces to make a huge Championship run this season. Last year Mitch, Jason, and I started 1-0 and three of the four owners who started 1-0 made the playoffs.





  2. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 1-0

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 183.20 points on Taco Corp. Heath has had strong starts in the past, but after looking over his roster he drafted Alvin Kamara, Carson Wentz, Keenan Allen, Julian Edelman, Dede westbrook, Aaron Jones who Heath used a keeper on, Zach Ertz, Dak Prescott as a second quarterback, and the Chargers defense. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes has a team with the talent and potential to make the playoffs. His team is projected to score more than mine in week 2 so that should tell you that Heath is a contender this season.





  3. Kerryon My Wayward Son 1-0

    Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle a year ago. This team also drafted strong for the most part. This is a team that feels like a boom or bust team. However they play Car RamRod this week so if they can defeat Andrew Kermish, Riley will have a team that is in position to contend with the other playoff teams early in the season.





  4. Brees Nutz 1-0

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to repeat as Bantle Bowl Champion. Despite losing Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley, this team still has a lot of talent. Lamar Jackson balled out last week. This team could easily three peat and is a contender once again.





  5. Florida Disco Yetis 1-0

    Florida Disco Yeti's is the new team in the league and they are replacing Jimmy Dicken's Team which won Bantle Bowl 1. This team got off to a 1-0 start and deserves credit for that. I'm not sure this is a long-term contender for a playoff spot though. Florida Disco Yetis face H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes in a match that will decide who is guaranteed to start 2-0. The other 1-0 owners are facing 0-1 teams in week 2.





  6. Taco Corp 0-1

    Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. They play Avengers and are projected to win by improving to 1-1 in week 2.





  7. The Chosen Ones 0-1

    Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV last year. This team is strong at quarterback, running back, and tight end. Jason plays me this week and needs a win to get back in the thick of things. Even if Jason started 0-2, he's the one person in this league that could rally back from an 0-2 start to make the playoffs. His lack of depth at wide receiver is the one reason why I'm selling his team as a contender at the moment, but one thing I've learned over the years is to never sleep on Jason Bantle's team competing for a playoff spot since he puts together a quality team most seasons.





  8. Car RamRod 0-1

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 0-1. Kerm is just happy that the Dallas Cowboys and Alabama Crimson Tide are undefeated at the moment. Kerm could easily win against Kerryon My Wayward Son to improve to 1-1.





  9. Avengers 0-1

    Avengers has a talented team. This team will have a glaring weakness at running back though as long as Melvin Gordon continues to holdout. Avengers had their two year window of opportunity when they had Le'Veon Bell and Kareem Hunt two years ago. Then once Bell had his holdout and Hunt got cut from the Chiefs they entered a rebuild.





  10. Team Mouserat 0-1

    Mark got the 4 seed last year. I felt like he drafted a better team last year. That is showing early with his record, but Mark has a team like Jason that could start 0-2 and still potentially get the 4 seed in the playoffs. Mark has issues at tight end at the moment, but if Rob Gronkowski returns and Trey Burton is healthy then look out.






Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago is traveling to Denver. Matt Nagy has to outcoach former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. JuWuan James is not playing at right tackle. As long as Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd get by Denver's offensive tackles, then Joe Flacco will have hardly any time in the pocket.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver has Von Miller and Bradley Chubb off the edge. Joe Flacco just has to play smart.


Prediction: Chicago enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40.5 points. I am going with Chicago to win and Denver to cover with the under in a defensive game.

Philadelphia Eagles 1-0-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tony Mario will post his NFL Power Rankings for 2019 soon. I will update those when he sends them to me.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Philadelphia faces a tough Atlanta Falcons defense. Carson Wentz has a very good offensive line with Jason Peters and Lane Johnson at offensive tackle. Philadelphia can get Alshon Jeffrey, DeSean Jackson, and Zach Ertz involved. Philadelphia has a lot of depth. Tim Jernigan is taking over for Malik Jackson and the Eagles do not have to deal with Chris Lindstrom.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta has their safeties back with Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen. Thier cornerback tandem of Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver will help. If left guard James Carpenter, center Alex Mack, and right guard Jamon Brown open things up for Devonta Freeman then Atlanta may win this game.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $125 dollars with the average gambler betting around $115 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51 points. I am going with Atlanta to win and cover with the over.

Cleveland Browns 0-1-0
Versus
New York Jets 0-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in New York.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from New York. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Welcome to New York. Baker Mayfield faces Sam Darnold once again. Last year Tyrod Taylor started this game before Baker Mayfield put Tyrod Taylor in his place by coming in as a backup.

Filiponi: Now we get to see Le'Veon Bell serve the Cleveland Browns in something besides a Steeler jersey.

Pompieni: Great professionalism guys. Mark, who do you like in tonights game and why.

Madden: I like the Jets because fuck the Browns. Also the Jets have to be pretty pissed about blowing a 16-0 lead to the Buffalo Bills.

Filiponi: Mark is right the New York Jets will win. I think Le'Veon Bell goes off.

Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you buy Jersey Shore. These games that the Jets and Giants play are in New Jersey not New York.

Madden: That's right Bob. It's a Jersey Thing. Also Andrew Filiponi is The Situation.

Filiponi: Shut up Madden.

Pompieni: We'll be back with kickoff after these messages and numerous advertisements.



Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Cleveland looked sloppy in their opener. Cleveland looked decent until Greg Robinson got ejected for targeting. Cleveland's offensive line is a weakness, but the Jets do not have lethal pass rushers like the Titans had. New York is more of a team that excels in run defense than pass defense. Cleveland is favored again despite losing to Tennessee by 30.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold got humiliated by Baker Mayfield last year. New York has to be pretty pissed about blowing a 16-0 lead to Buffalo at home. Cleveland has a much better team based on what they did in the offseason. Honestly, I'm going to look the other way if one of the Gang Green defenders hulk smashes Odell Beckham Jr.'s watch. However, with Sam Darnold getting injured and having Mono, Cleveland should win this game.


Prediction: Cleveland enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5 points. I am going with Cleveland to win and to cover with the under.
