A couple of SB futures

I played the Colts at +2200, I really like their draft, and if Rivers has anything left, I think they can be a dangerous team

I Played the Steelers +2700, they won 8 games last year without a competent QB, if Ben can stay healthy I think they can make a run

They had a great draft also. I wish they had a better backup QBs though. I’m just not sold on Rivers.

If Rivers goes down, they have zero shot regardless of who the backup is, I'm hoping Rivers has something left in his tank, if he does I think they can be dangerous

i cannot bet on kent tekulve.. steelers got a shot. IMO they were better than that. I will still think that baltimore will be the team but i can't take them as a future.

I understand the value part, but Kansas City is the "new" New England.

Consistently great Qb in a shitty division --- since none of the other teams have good qbs at the moment

The road to the SB goes thru Arrowhead

I agree with you about KC, they have a chance to replace NE as the dominant team in the AFC, them and Baltimore are by far the top 2 teams in the conference, but I'll never make a future on those teams, so I look for teams with high odds that could make the playoffs and possibly make a run, if either of my teams get in, I have two veteran QB's leading them

Good luck with your Dolphins Kane

Definitely would be nice to see the Pats monopoly in that division end
Last year they had very little talent, they traded away all of their good players, and yet they won 5 games after starting the season looking they would set records for futility, they finished the season strong. I'm very high on Brian Flores, after years of swings and misses, I think they finally hit on a head coach, and if you look at the QB's in the division, Fitz, Darnold, Allen, and presumably Stidham, I don't know if there's a big difference between them, and if Tua plays, that means he best out Fitz for the job and I wouldn't have a problem with that either, there's no way they should be +900 to win a division that on paper appears wide open. I know Buffalo was very good last year, but I'm not sold on them as a consistent every year solid team, we'll see, in fact I'm taking the plus odds right now, no reason to wait. The only thing that would make me nervous is if Cam signed with NE, but I don't see that happening, I wouldn't be surprised to see him not on a roster when the season begins, he can wait and see who gets injured

Buffalo only won a game vs teams with winning records last year.

Rivers sucks, is a loser, ive watched him for 15 years. Gates carried him. Phillip is a crybaby and a turnover machine, plays his worst in the 4th qtr

Rivers is the answer to an interesting college football trivia question.

Name the only player to win five MVP awards in five bowl games.

Three Tangerine Bowls, one Gator Bowl and a Senior Bowl.

I am not a fan of rivers but there have been worse QB's that have won the SB. Colts should be better. Problem is Balt & KC ... need injuries with those 2 for Colts to win. It could happen.

Injuries happen all the time Topper, I can make the case I've got the 3rd and 4th best teams in the AFC, one at 27/1 the other at 22/1. I need the two old timers (Rivers and Ben) to out duel the kids (Mahomes and Jackson)

I couldn’t play KC under on wins. Should go 5-1 pretty easily in the division.
I can't play them Under either, I think the Chiefs have a chance to go on a Patriots like run, I'm not saying they'll replicate what Brady and company did, but this Mahomes kid is special

I like the way you phrased/viewed the situation.

I'm sorta think'n the Cardinals are gonna sneak into the Superbowl at some point with Murray. Love his game.

I grabbed some 80-1 a while back...
You could be right about the Cardinals, and I'm a Murray fan, but they need to fix that D before they start thinking SB, I think they're a few years away, GL with your 80/1

I think Zona is somewhat live. Isaiah Simmons will be a generational D talent, similar to Kuechly and Urlacher roaming the field at all depths, and Chandler Jones is the best pass rusher in the NFL. SF is a great team, and will be tough to beat out for the division.

Love Simmons, agree that he'll be a stud, saw him play a lot at Clemson. The Cards are headed in the right direction, and for sure will be on my radar in the coming years. Like them opening week against SF

Love this play. 10 wins is priced for the name on the back of # 12’s jersey, not for the player he currently is.
Last year they won 7 games, so they need a 3 game improvement. A lot of people might not be aware, but there were only 2 teams last year that scored more points than Tampa, so I don't know if they even improve offensively with Brady, offense wasn't their problem, it was their defense that cost them games, they're D was lousy, not sure how they'll improve this year. The one thing that they'll benefit from is less turnovers, I like Winston, but you can't turn the ball over at the rate he did and have a winning team, you just can't. The odds are this year's team won't average as many points as last year's team did, it's just a question of how much improvement they get from their D, less turnovers means their D won't be put in as many bad spots as they were last year, but I still can't see an improvement of 3 games. The other thing about Brady is, after 20 years in one system, now he has to learn a different one, and with everything that going on with the pandemic, there might not be the typical offseason workouts and practices that he would need to get in sync with his new teammates, it might take a few games for them to all be on the same page. Every swinging dick will be on them this year because of Brady, I plan on picking my spots to fade them
