After your account is created and you've made a deposit, you are ready to place bets.
Let's take a look at some favorable lines that you should take advantage of right now:
The Indianapolis Colts win line right now is set at 8.5 games. With the addition of Phillip Rivers at QB and the offensive upgrades in Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor via the draft, the Colts have set themselves up for a bounceback year. These additions, coupled with a weak AFC South, allows the Colts to get to 9 wins pretty easily in my book.
Bet: Colts OVER 8.5 wins
Lots of money coming in on the Saints to be under 10.5 wins this year. I like the Saints to win 11 this year. Tampa Bay is getting all the love in the NFC South, but the Saints are returning with a stellar defensive core as well as adding Emmanuel Sanders to the offense. Even if you are worried about Drew Brees' health this year, Jameis Winston will be backing him up and is more than capable of filling in for an extended absence.
Bet: Saints OVER 10.5 wins
Another prop that I really like this year in the NFL is the Steelers winning the AFC North. Baltimore is the favorite, as they should be after a spectacular 12-4 season a year ago. The one unknown this year is how teams will adapt to Lamar Jackson. He is dynamic, but he will have to show that he can beat teams with his arm rather than his legs at some point. With the return of Ben Roethlisberger, I like the Steelers chances of getting back to the top.
Bet: AFC North Champion STEELERS
Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a polarizing player in the NFL. He has been lauded for having one of the strongest arms in the league but has been knocked for his lack of accuracy throughout his college and professional career. The Bills traded for Stefon Diggs during the offseason to give them a bonafide top wide receiver. John Brown will slide into the #2 role, and Cole Beasley will work primarily from the slot. With the addition of Diggs, and another offseason under his belt, I see Allen going over 3,300 yards this year.
Bet: Allen OVER 3249.5 Total Passing Yards
Gronkowski is back from retirement! He couldn't resist a Brady reunion in Tampa Bay. He is not the same all around TE that he was with New England, he'll mainly be asked to be a pass catcher while leaving blocking duties to Cameron Brate and OJ Howard. Brady hasn't had a normal offseason to gel with his new receivers. My bet is Brady will be looking at Gronk as a safety blanket early in the season.
Bet: Gronkowski OVER 599.5 Receiving Yards

This week, the league's greatest quarterbacks had a chance to battle it out: Tom Brady took on Aaron Rodgers in a surprise blowout win, while MVP candidate Josh Allen lost to Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes.
The lesson to be learned here is don't count those MVP votes before Week 6 (and never, never slander Tom Brady before a big game).
As Ferris Bueller might say: The world of sports moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around at least once a week, you could miss it.Here we'll review what you might have missed in the past week all in one place. Why spend hours scrolling through Twitter to catch up on the news you want? We've already done that for you, so remember to check back every Monday to get your dose of weekly sports review.
Fall is in the air—so are a hell of a lot of changes in the NFL.
Le'Veon went from worst to first, Dan Quinn is out of job, and like college athletes, sports journalists apparently aren't allowed to make money from sponsorships. Meanwhile, coronavirus is running in the background, taking out teams before opponents even get the chance.
Here are the oofs and ahhs in this week's edition of Shots Taken.
