Listen: Ravens, Chiefs And Lions discussed on Reimer & Dakota
"How are you buddy? How's it going so far? Never better. Can I just got a quick shout out to myself? Happy birthday Flint dealer. Yes. I did not see that on Facebook. So I blame it all on Facebook. That I forgot to wish you a happy birthday. How you doing Mr Fox? We're good. We're in Austin so experiencing a new city for the first time and then after Chicago tomorrow so on the road today. So it's been a fun day so far in week. Although I gotta tell ya. We usually chat on Mondays about our action. I did bet on the titans. I didn't pick them in our pool which kicking myself over, but I did bet on them. But I also bet the under, and we did least we would have pushed on the under had they not gotten that stupid safety. I was like are you kidding ended up being thirty nine the total? When when they had it at thirty seven. So that was a bit of a push. And then I went with the the warriors at the end of a road trip. You know, the schedule loss playing against the box and the bucks are team. And I had the I was another push because I had the under. And I had the warriors. I'm sorry. I had the box. So I lost the box one the under. I just been pushing. All week. You know, win lose win-lose win-lose. Thank goodness, you're pushing. You know, what's fun is. I know you, and I spoke it's been about a month. Now, right before I sent you those NBA basically systems if you will in a month period or five weeks period, are you up or down. Because remember it's a percentage game. You don't you don't care whether they're wearing a magic uniform are pelicans uniform. It's literally just situational betting. You take your heart out of it. And all you do is wager on your mind. How are you after five or six weeks using the systems? I gotta be honest. It's probably about even money. I would go on what it's been like is I go on a streak of winning four or five in a row. And then I'll lose four or five in a row. So that's really what's been happening. So and I haven't been keeping track the way I should to know exactly what my what my number is. But let's talk about some of the baths for four tomorrow. I see your first pick that you like an over under. It's not the one that. I like I like the under. In that chiefs ravens game at fifty one. I know the chiefs could score fifty one all by themselves. But I feel like the ravens are going to burn up clock to clock and waste time. And fifty one's a pretty high number. Tell me what you think of that one. While you're telling me what you think of saints at Tampa on the under. Well saints in Tampa under all these second. Let's start with the ravens and chief since you brought it up. I actually like in that one minus six and a half. It's a big number ravens have the number one defense in the league. And obviously the chiefs have the number one offense. And you know, don't the one thing I know about football is that offense usually wins. They always say the receivers nowhere. They're going before the DB's know where they're going to go. So I like to lean towards offense. When you have, you know, basically, a d versus oh sort of scenario and remember that she's continued a role. They they put up forty against a real pesky Oakland club last week in Baltimore enters off. What's shouldn't have been a really tough road win in Atlanta. It basically left everything on the line that one showed me that the ravens. You know, they struggle against bad teams. I don't think there is good as we think they are in. Here's what I think is happening. This quarterback controversy is proving a distraction. I know Lamar Jackson is interesting. Right. And they always say about new quarterbacks. There's not tape on them. So he's kind of a running thread you can throw the ball a little bit. But I know flacco healthy. Now, I think he's shooting up, and I just think that's going to be a distraction this week. No while that Baltimore is just two and four against the spread. And its last six as a road dog in the three and a half to seven range, and while Kansas City is already foreign one against the spread this year as a favorite in the three and a half to nine and a half point range inside of seven. I think the chiefs separate themselves from what is really sluggish ravens offense. My prediction is thirty five twenty one. If it's six and a half, I would take Kansas City all day and night. I don't think this one should be. That's quote. This is actually a mismatch on paper. I like it. I like it. All right. Yeah. Bengals at chargers charged been playing very well biggers are Bengals are a bit of a dumpster, fire fourteen and a half is the number at this point. That's big number which way you going. Yeah. I don't like this at all. But sometimes you just have to hold your nose and head to the counter Cincinnati is playing with a backup quarterback and its best receiver. You know, him his hurt again that this is a horrendous scheduling situation for the chargers off a tremendous come from behind victory on national television against the Steelers with a Thursday night football game at Kansas City on deck after that contest Los Angeles finished the season. They also finished the season coming up with two more potential teams against the raven. Denver Broncos San Diego has already shown is not a team delay big numbers with Anthony win the offensive coordinator, very conservative with believe this is one where you simply hold your nose. And you take two touchdowns and bet Cincinnati has nothing other than to do with. It's a bad. Little squeeze play. Cincinnati will lose to this one by ten I like, the number in that take the Bengals target Vegas numbers with our friend and Vegas insider, Flint Wheeler, we got lions on the road in era. Zona against the cardinals. You liked Detroit. I disagree with you on this one. I'm going to take the cards. Tell me why you like the lions boy, I'm gonna tell your listeners, and you go down and bet it now this number's going to grow. I have at minus two I think it'll probably two and a half or three there's big money already heading on Detroit. And I'll tell you why I see the lines taking care of business here. They're only four and eight straight up on the year and they've lost five of their last six up. But this week finds a matched up with perhaps literally the weakest team in the entire NFC. Generally, speaking, the lions have handled their business against bad teams, going eight and three straight up and seven three one against the spread against sub five hundred four that's over the last three seasons. The cardinals are a substantial drop in class. From Detroit's recent string of opponents in Arizona, basically won the Super Bowl last week beating Green Bay up in Green Bay has a fourteen point dog. I suspect they won't handle success. Well, as they lost by double digits both times off their last two. Previous wins. As for the lions last week allowing a late touchdown cost them again over the Rams again where they were basically even in total yardage and down only three entering the fourth quarter. Thanksgiving Day was Matt Stafford's pick six that was the difference in the twenty three sixteen loss to the bears having come so close against a couple of really good team. The lion should handle this drop in crash. Very well laid a very short number while you have the chance and take the lion's minus the two. You know, I was confused. I was thinking of another red team that I like that is an underdog that being the Niners at home to the Broncos. But I've got to ask you about this giants Redskins game. Because the giants are seemingly a much better team a little bit more healthy while they were up until today. Now that Odell Beckham is reportedly not going to play would you would you run for the hills from this game with the giants minus three or do you still like them over the Redskins who are all banged up? And Mark Sanchez their quarterback. Boy, if we had had this conversation on Wednesday, I would've yelled at you to take the under Mark Sanchez is not gonna put up two touchdowns. We know that we saw him. He's only gonna have literally less than a dozen offensive plays going into this week and without Odell Beckham as the outside threat, whether he catches the ball or not you have to account for them on defense with him out of the lineup. They're just gonna what they call stuff the box. And I think it's going to be a weary tough day for Barclay. If he's in your fantasy can't that might be a week, right? Sit him. I liked the under in that. I don't know what it is at now. I think it was forty one or thirty nine, but it's dropping like a rock. But that one's got ugly written all over it. I don't see the giants having any offensive real threat to go forward. And I know the Redskins aren't going to score anything that one has a ten three written all over it. But I couldn't tell you what he's gonna win. He said Barkley, you bet Sanchez. But I knew what you were talking about eagles Cowboys. There's another spread that surprising to me Dallas, the three point home favourite playing much better than the eagles of late is is that number strictly based on the fact that this is the Super Bowl champion and coming off a win, and it's an NFC east battle and all of those factors throwing any kind of throw the records out the window. No, I don't. And you know, what's interesting is. I think at some point we have to stop looking for the Philadelphia Eagles of last year to show up. You are who you are. They're not a very good football team. They look great on on national television. Which is why you know as a stockbroker. I'd probably short them right now. Because our last memory of the eagles looks great. I don't know what was it that Sunday night game or the Monday night game where they ran up and down the field. I'd like him. I just don't think that they are who we think they are. I think there are bad football team. Again. I don't like the side because I just can't predict what's going to come out. Each offensive sequence. But again, I liked I liked the under in that one, my friend. I this time of year defense rears its ugly head and there's plenty of tape on both sides of the ball for what teams are going to ride. And I think defense has the advantage, especially as the weather cools and gets a little squirrelly. I'd probably look at the under again in that one. That's a good. That's a good way to look at that one. I just feel like if the Cowboys play the way that they've played over the last couple of weeks, and again, that's not nothing's etched in stone. But they've looked far better than the eagles over the last few weeks, and there are a lot healthier. So a three point spread to me is surprising. But you know, the old rule when it looks weird. That's one of those ones where you might want to just stay away. Because if it seems strange at probably is so. Lose. What's the saying? If it's obvious you'll lose money if. Yeah. It's gonna be fun Sunday for sure Flint, always appreciate it. Enjoy the weekend, my friend. We'll talk to you later. Bye.
