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

As the NFL postseason got underway last week, it became clear we need to make some halftime adjustments with our picks this week.
The Ravens were an easy cover for us, especially once Lamer found his groove and the grooves in Tennessee's D. Throw in a few head scratching punts by Mike Vrabel and that does the trick.
Meanwhile, Stefon Diggs came up two catches short for us with three targets left on the table. It was always going to be tough to get that many grabs, but it was worth a few bucks just to see what would happen.
Please, please, please remind me never to bet unders. I haven't hit one all year and yet the siren's song calls me to shore. I maintain this is the best one I bet all year. The pick 6 and DK Metcalf bomb in the second quarter killed after the best start imaginable. After 15 minutes, we had a combined score of 3, 15 minutes of game time later? 30. Bananas.
Then I don't really know what else to say about Pittsburgh losing to Baker Mayfield and co. that hasn't already been said. I just have to edit my list of completely impossible things to put, "Snowing in the Sahara desert," and "Taylor Swift ever getting back together with Jake Gyllenhaal" above "The Browns beating the Steelers in the playoffs."
Put on your general manager hat for a moment and ask yourself this question: If my team struggled mightily the past couple seasons, is struggling now and will continue to struggle, would I trade my franchise star?
It's an extremely difficult decision to make, but it's something the Washington Wizards have to be pondering with shooting guard Bradley Beal.
Beal has been on an absolute rampage through 11 games, posting a league-high 34.9 points per game on 49% shooting and 38% from distance. He's also dishing out five assists and grabbing 5.3 rebounds with 1.5 steals. All that in 36 minutes a night, yet the Wizards are 3-8 which is the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference.
"I'm pissed off," Beal told reporters after his 60-point game on Jan. 6. "I'm mad. I don't count [them]. ... Any of my career-highs, they've been in losses. So I don't give a damn. You can throw it right out the window with the other two or three I've had."
His frustration is evident, and though he hasn't verbalized that he wants out of D.C., it's hard not to think that the idea hasn't crossed his mind at least once with how bad the Wizards have been recently.
From 2018-20, they went a combined 57-97 with John Wall sidelined after he tore his Achilles. Before this season began, the Wizards acquired Russell Westbrook in exchange for Wall and a pick, thinking they were getting an upgrade at point guard. Plot twist, they weren't.
Wall is healthy and playing good basketball in Houston while Westbrook is sitting back-to-backs and is currently nursing a quad injury. More importantly, he doesn't make them much better because of his lack of defense and is thus piling up meaningless triple-doubles that don't translate to team success.
Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on DFS sites, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.
Most NFL DFS games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games, or it could be every game that is slated for the week. Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.
The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. Let's take a look at players we like in the first round of the NFL playoffs this weekend.
