After a two-week hiccup, The #TooManyLegs Teaser returned to glory by going 7-0-1 last week (49er/Pats teased OVER 39 pushed), I cannot apologize enough for the push, but cashed bets are cashed bets. This week we will go 8-0 together. We must remember as the calendar turns to November that the #TooManyLegs Teaser is 4-2 and I'm 42-5-1 (89%) in 2020; you'd be a fool to jump off the bandwagon at this point.
Not only am I making these bets with hopes of winning myself and the riders some extra cash (hashtag good guy), but as I continue to put all my eggs in the #HireDozo basket I need to have a nice like, 11-4 record to make myself more hirable for when I eventually work up the courage to send out a legitimate application instead of tweeting #HireDozo into the abyss.
Sure, I've been in my own head trying to perfect my "Dear Coley," blog for two weeks, but the people don't care about that, they care about picks and here they are for Week 8.
Chiefs -13.5 (from 19.5)
Even though the Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl Champs and the Jets are winless, Chiefs DT Chris Jones brought up a great point. "That's a very good football team. People forget that because they haven't won a game." While the New York Jets are a professional football team playing against another professional football team in the Kansas City Chiefs that's where the similarities between these two clubs end. Of course it's always a little scary to bet on this large of a line, there's so many variables that could fuck this up, but at the end of the day this is the Chiefs vs the Jets. If the Chiefs can't beat the Jets by two touchdowns at home they could be kicked out of the league. Chiefs should win by 24+.
Steelers/Ravens OVER 38 (from 44)
In case you didn't know, there is no love lost between these to two smash mouth AFC North rivals. Steelers-Ravens is the most balanced rivalry in the NFL the last 20 years The weather definitely doesn't do us any favors in the search for points, neither do these defense who both give up under 20 points a game, but over 38 with these offenses makes me feel a lot more comfortable than putting a cap on the total. Even with the weather I think these teams find a way to crack 40.
Rams + 2.5 (from -3.5)
The Rams are one of the better teams in the NFL going up against a guy making his first NFL start. Tua is the guy going forward, but not this week. If McVay wants to be considered a genius he needs to lead his troops to victory today.
Raiders/Browns OVER 41 (from 47)
Weather scares the shit out of me and the Browns are without Odell and Hooper, but I still think these offenses end up scoring at least 20 each.
Titans -1 (from -7) and OVER 43 (from 49)
Titans had a slow start against the Steelers, but were a makable field goal away from OT. I'm not done believing in them. I think the Bengals are just what the doctor ordered. Derrick Henry might have himself another 200+ yard day. Between both teams offenses and suspect at best defenses, I feel great about over 43 and might even take the real over.
Packers +0.5 (from -5.5)
I heard that the Packers are 0-6 on Daylight Savings Time week (h/t Pardon my Take) and that stat is just too ridiculous to ride against the Vikings. Of course in a rivalry game anything can happen, but the Vikings are trash and the Packers love to eat trash and beat up on inferior opponents. I wouldn't be shocked to see it be like 14-3 Vikings after the first quarter with the Packers ultimately pulling it out.
Colts/Lions OVER 43 (from 49)
The Colts and Lions both average at least 26 points a game. Even though I feel like Rivers and Stafford are both right on the cusp of frauds with how inconsistent their play is week-to-week, any time you can get the total to under 44 I am going over; ESPECIALLY in a dome with decent offenses. Of course with these teams could see like 8 red zone trips that end with a touchdown, 6 field goals, and a turnover, but that's why they call it gambling.
Good luck and always bet responsibly.
