An even 2-2 yesterday, lost the first two and won the last two. I am still over .500 though and plus money, so that’s good. The dog days of the back half of a baseball season are real, it’s really tough to determine a team’s day-to-day motivation during this time. Tonight though, we do get a little preseason football.
Is preseason football dangerous? Yes. Because to a casual fan, it is pointless. It might even be a money trap when a team really isn’t looking to get a win. But, if you’re smart, you know what trend to follow in a preseason: under totals. If you know me, I hate taking unders. But preseason football screams under. No one wants to push it, no one wants to get hurt, and lots of 4th down conversion attempts. Plenty of time running off the clock too, teams just want to get in and get out.
THAT BEING SAID – TONIGHT IS NOT THAT NIGHT. There is a QB battle in New England, and I expect both of them to will their way to some points.
With that, the picks.
- (MLB) Detroit Tigers ML (-103)
- (MLB) Marlins/Reds O8.5 (-107)
- (NFL) Patriots/Eagles O37.5 (-113)
