The game we all know and love to watch/bet on is finally back!! No more of the preseason bullshit where the scores range all over the place, or college football which is a betting NIGHTMARE because it is an electric game full of upsets and crazy upsets (see action jackson's story on the florida state comeback) which makes for a electric football to watch, but a gamblers fucking nightmare. Thank god for the NFL, where the pro's go out there and have the maturity to do their job. Every week he goes out there, JJ Watt will cause havoc, save injury, in any teams back field. You can take it to the bank. Here's to a return to sanity.
This brings us to the main point of this blog, Panthers vs. Broncos. Superbowl rematch, where the broncos pulled off a HUGE upset and smacked the panthers in the mouth to win SB 50. The sheriff rode off into the sunset, Brock Osweiler went to Houston, and somehow the broncos ended up with Trevor Siemian as their starting QB week one. They bring back arguably the most dominant defenses in football led by the highest payed defensive player ever in Von "Rocking yeezy cleats game 1" Miller. There receiving core, still nice, CJ Anderson is still a problem, the biggest question is still at QB.
The Panthers are back at full steam and are insatiably hungry after that killer loss in SB 50. Cam is back, and he gets his best outside weapon back that he didn't have at all last season, during their 15-1 regular season run that took them to the Superbowl, Kelvin Benjamin, a 6-5 245 monster of a receiver who will do DAMAGE. On defense they lose a lock down corner in Josh Norman, but I am of the mindset that he is more of a cover corner than anything else. There defense will already be shut down, I do not for see much of a fall off.
Panthers v. Broncos (+3)
I am huge on the panthers this year, so I will absolutely HAMMER -3 for the panthers here, easy $ there.
Over under 40.5
These are two really good defensive teams, and while I hate to do it week 1 because it might bring more of a boring game, I have to bet the under here, begrudgingly.
I will do more game picks tomorrow, but right now thank god football is back!
Everything you need to know about the yay.
