Let's take a look at some favorable lines that you should take advantage of right now:

Indianapolis Colts win line 2020 Fanduel Sportsbook

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

New Orleans Saints win line 2020 Fanduel Sportsbook

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

AFC North Winner Odds Fanduel Sportsbook

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

Josh Allen Passing Yards Odds Fanduel Sportsbook

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 receiving yards odds Fanduel Sportsbook

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

Paul George grabbing a rebound in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals

In a must win game for the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul George was finally able to look like the best player on the floor in a playoff game.

After a slow start, George poured it on in the second half on his way to a game high 41 points in Game 5. The performance elevated the Clippers over strong outings from the likes of Devin Booker and Chris Paul as L.A. outlasted Phoenix 116-102.

The Clippers don't have much time to bask in their win however as they have to turn around and play two more elimination games just to make it out of the West. The Suns jumped out to a 3-1 series lead as Los Angeles struggled to find their identity without Kawhi Leonard. If the Clippers are to stave off elimination any longer, George has to continue this level of play.

Ben Simmons disappointed in the playoffs this season

Following a Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, the Philadelphia 76ers and coach, Doc Rivers, are questioning if Ben Simmons is the right guy to be running their offense through moving forward.

Offense being the key word here.

Simmons is an all-world defender possessing the ability to guard virtually any opponent on the court from the perimeter to the rim. But it was his lack of offensive help throughout this playoff season that stood out beyond any accomplishments this year. Simmons joined Rudy Gobert as unanimous selections for the NBA's All-Defensive First Team this year and also finished fifth in the NBA in assists per game with 8.8 per contest.

The Lakers looked lost in the Valley

The Phoenix Suns are just a win away from sending LeBron James home in the first round of the playoffs for the first time in the King's illustrious career.

After stating that "These shoulders were built for a reason," James referring to facing the challenge of taking on added responsibilities after Anthony Davis was ruled out for Game 5, the Lakers and LeBron disappointed in a big way Tuesday night. L.A. started off hot jumping out to a 10-5 lead behind a couple shots from James and a three from Davis' replacement Markieff Morris. But it didn't take long for the wheels to completely fall off for the defending champion Lakers as they spent most of the first half trying to remember how basketball works.

Two numbers stick out in the Game 5 loss for the Lakers and those are 34.5 and 12. Los Angeles shot 34.5% from the field on Tuesday night and were minus 12 in turnover ratio. No matter who's on your team, if you can't shoot and you can't protect the ball, the outcome is already determined.

The Suns weren't simply beneficiaries of a poor performance however as the Suns put it on the Lakers early and often and they never let their foot off the pedal for 48 minutes. Phoenix ended with 15 more assists, had seven more combined steals and blocks, and outscored L.A. in the paint by 12 points. Devin Booker and Cameron Payne were spectacular and they seemed to hit big shots every time the Lakers appeared to threaten a comeback. Mikal Bridges was effective on both sides of the ball adding three steals and two blocks to help electrify his team with the defensive effort.
