Kieran O'Connor, Mike Carlson and John Balfe preview the opening weekend as the Pats go to Miami and Tom Brady begins life in Tampa. Listen to the podcast and get their bets...
"In an empty stadium, if Tampa's offence is ready to go, that could decide things. That would make 6/4 on Tampa a good bet."
Mike: "Houston's defence can keep the Chiefs in check long enough to make the bet on under 54.5 points a good one."
Kieran: "We all agree on that bet."
Mike: "If you like the Dolphins to win this, I'd be tempted to bet them on the moneyline at 23/10 rather than back the Dolphins with the -6.5 handicap."
John: "The Dolphins will be an unknown quantity for the Patriots and can cause them problems."
John: "Tampa are a project and we don't know how it will work on the field. It's like somebody's fantasy team from 2016."
Mike: "This is a really tight game. I think Tampa are going to be much better this year, thanks in part to Tom Brady joining from the Patriots."
John: "I think they Saints will win handsomely and will back them -3.5 points at 10/11."
Mike: "In an empty stadium, if Tampa's offence is ready to go, that could decide things. That would make 6/4 on Tampa a good bet."
Monday and Tuesday games
Mike: "I like the over 51.5 points in this at 11/10. Both teams have defensive weaknesses."
John: "Pittsburgh should be stronger this year. The Giants should put on a show too. I'm going to back over 47.5 points in this one."
Mike: "I like the Steelers -5.5 points here."
