A new story from The Bill Simmons Podcast


Jaguars 15 to one and like the easiest division of all time, pats are 25 to one. I don't totally get it with the jets. It feels like they're a year away, especially with Bruce hall. I don't know if it's realistic that he comes back during this season. It's more than the jet sides. It's because of Brady two years ago, three years ago. It was very similar situation. Great young team just missing one position. And if we get that one position and he can lead us, then we're good. Now remember, it took a while for Brady to learn Aryans as offense. They came and stumbled out of the blocks a little bit. And then they got hot and they won a new and I did a killing on $1 million picks because of it.

AFC starts on FanDuel are interesting. All the odds are great right now. This is like the best time for value. The bills are plus one 30. The jets are plus two 50. Dolphins plus two 90. And then the Pats are plus 7 50. And I don't know. The Pats were the
