Brandon Turner’s Best Bets: Week 3
Last week we went 1-2 bringing our season even at 3-3. 2 of those losses came from believing Mitch Trubisky could do anything on offense, someone please please stop me from betting on the Bears. Week 3, 3 new picks, no Bears, let’s go. Los Angeles Rams (-3.5) at Cleveland Browns Hidden in the Browns stomping of the Jets was the fact that the Browns really didn’t look good, especially on offense. The Jets were depleted and even when healthy are a flawed team and their incompetence covered up how poor most of Baker’s throws looked. The pre-season hype and the beating up of a hobbled opponent has given us a line that is more than palatable. Take the rams minus 3.5. New England Patriots (-21) vs New York Jets The Pats LOVE to run up the score. They will have plenty of opportunity as the Jets will be out multiple starters and are a far inferior team even when completely healthy. This will get out of hand quickly. Seattle Seahawks (-4.5) vs New Orleans Saints If this was in the Superdome this line might scare me but the thought of Teddy B and Taysom Hill trying to replace Brees IN Seattle leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy. Russel is quietly having a good start to the season and Payton won’t have enough tricks up his sleeve to pull this out.
