To Fox sports. Radio. I didn't think I put a jinx on him saying Trevor, Lawrence whereas in is good but. He's gets in trouble. Yeah, and he tested positive for the corona virus that came out. So he will miss this weekend's game. I have not seen an update as far as next week goes but as it stands right now, the consensus number one pick in next year's draft. If he does decide to come out is going to be out for Clemson this week. overrated. But still. Going to be the number one or I almost certainly the number one pick. So Jonas. I know there's a lot of talking the big ten and Wisconsin and Oh. It's twenty one days. It's this it's that. Way Does. The ACC have a strict guidelines or would your guess be regard? I guess you're saying still even possible he's back next week. Yeah. There's a possibility. Now I've seen a couple of different reports that have been out there to where they think it's a long shot because next week's game and we alluded to yesterday is the one at Notre Dame. So that's the big one and it feels like they're not sure whether or not he's going to be cleared for that. But the big ten's rules are much more strict to where I it's twenty one days you've got. To be out if I have that number correct I think it's twenty one days in the big ten. So because he's in the ACC, it saves them a little bit but it's still puts them in trouble against Notre Dame next week, which is really if you look at the rest of their schedule, they got Florida state they got they got Virginia Tech the one next week against Notre. Dame is the real threat to potentially cause them to not make a run at the College Football playoff. Yeah. We're talking about the play offs right because I don't think a team with the. Fewer Games is going to be able to lose a game maybe, but you know, and maybe they would give an accommodation. That's a great point that'd very interesting and I'd be very interesting. So my only main thought on this other than to wish Trevor Lawrence, you speedy recovery is. If we. Judged this against the historic normal we're like, oh, come on another cheese and I get it right. But remember it wasn't that long ago we didn't think there'd be any college football. So to me rolling with the punches here, it's it's Kinda like the when the electricity goes out the first hour you're complaining Dan someone says Oh Hey, I've got a battery we can listen to the transistor radio. You know what? I'm happy at that point if there's a transistor radio and as much as obviously each individual that's gets Cova it's. A burden in a struggle and we wish him the best. But looking at it across sports, the whole landscape and I think we should be appreciative because that long ago not only we didn't. We'd have college football we didn't have anything except.

We have a brand new fantasy football podcast called I want your flex twice a week every Tuesday and Friday we come up with new episodes to that only look back at what happened what you need to do at that minute and also look ahead of what's coming up in the fantasy football world. That's right. Dad every week we're going to scour the waiver wire to find the pickups to turbo boost your fantasy lineup and play a little defense against the competition since starts niches of the week. Fantasy, Ninja. All right that used to be sleepers but we needed a new term for twenty twenty and of course rankings we'd love to ranked stuff. We'll do the actors in big movies on our own time fantasy football players rankings to get you ready to dominate the competition. Listen I want your flex with Mike Harmon me Dan buyer on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. All Right Rj let's get started and we will start in Detroit or the lions are hosting the Indianapolis Colts Right now, and the colts on pregame.com are two and a half point favorite. Okay to quickies on this one, one coats have the worst strength schedule of games played based on football outsiders of any team though worst number thirty to. Think about what's the coats best win to a lot of talk about the codes. But I'm not impressed yet remember Cleveland handle them with no problem number two. Detroit you could say yeah. Not Gray. Patricia Boo. But they made some trades. They made some moves took on money and remember during the trading time. The teams are telling you are they buying or they sell, and if they sell the team gets demoralized often times at least for a week or two Detroit is buying I don't think that's something you can ignore. And I'm. On the Detroit Lions. Owen to without their Stud Wide Receiver Kenny. Golladay. Since days come back Detroit is three and one scoring six more points per game. Wow concise as concise to the NFC north. We stay we go to Green Bay this time where it's the Vikings Act the packers right now on pregame.com green bay six and a half point favorite I. Think you can question rightfully the motivation in this game we know that Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers is hit or miss. We know that after they got embarrassed they stepped up and covered played. Wow were they play well this week? I. Really Don't know what I will say is and this shocked me as I really dug into the numbers. Minnesota who's had obviously a very under. Wyoming season they've fallen far short of expectations of their fans of batters. But they've actually been lucky. So. What is lucky okay. Third. Down Conversions, if you're converting a lot of third downs more than you should based on your offensive skill set or your performance across all downs that usually evens out turnovers if to your benefit, they even out at least closer to even like fumble lock for example, also strength is scheduled as all these factors that create situations were a team. You play a backup quarterback a couple of times in a month though the team would be imagine playing Dallas now versus plane just not that long ago. But when you add it all up and I won't bore you with a bunch of numbers on the radio. But when you add it all up, Minnesota has a horrible record but amazingly, they've been lucky that doesn't bode well for the Vikings. The Patriots are at the bills right now buffalo a three and a half point favorite. Here's my analogy with the Patriots. And really it's an analogy with the bills. I don't know if you guys watch Beverly Hills. Nine. Oh. Two one. Oh, back in the day I'm talking about the nineties version. Is Brandon Walsh was Dayton a girl for awhile named Emily Valentine she was a wild child. Emily Valentine. You ever see Emily Johns I don't recall low for your time are. Is they ended up emily was from out of town she played the guitar and you would happen at one point she did drugs and everyone on the show got up sat and then they broke up brandon and her, and you know what emily went and brought a cake and put it in front. Doorstep. and. Brenda. Said Oh don't eat cake there could be ecstasy and. All right that was a long way to go to this, the bills are the cake. Okay and they're looking at is saying how this seems cheap a free cake. For example, the bills are cheap right now at the current line and you might think I wanNA gobble up some bills at three and a half let's say but everyone's way because they're saying I wonder if any dogs touched his k. one. And at some point, they're gonNA take a big bite because they're going to get hungry enough and I see this line moving up as but there's no reason for it to move up now and not a couple of days ago I just think everyone is scared the ballot check is wounded. Almost like a cake and he's like the guy in the Bush come out when you grab the cake and smack your hand or something. And I really believe this if it wasn't ballot check if this was just a blind. Resume kind of thing the bills might be favored by six and a half in this game. I mean, what do you think? I'm on the Buffalo Bills I'll take a bite of the cake I think that the bills are under valued here they only beat the jets eighteen to ten, but the bills kicked six field goals. If they had just scored three touchdowns instead of six, they would've blown out the jets. The bills are undervalued based upon a phony final. Yeah. I tell you the Mattie hold here every Wednesday he loves the bills are he's gotten skeptical on their defense is really banged up. So I think the thing about the Patriots last week was the perfect dream spot it really was. Not only was it off a two loss not only were they below five hundred, the extra motivation off an embarrassing loss the week before to Denver's touchdown plus favor. But it was even more than that. They had the scheme that keep in front of you Seattle defense the belichick usually and against San Fran runs at usually new. England. Tears it up and finally you had cam that only practice twice in some extended period. So you think they look bad for a reason and you know what? None of that mattered what it wasn't just cam that looked bad defense look bad and the effort was questionable on d I'm not biting the cake because ballot checks scares me but the cake out there and it looks grim delicious. Be Sure to catch live editions of straight Outta Vegas Weekdays at six PM Eastern Three PM Pacific on Fox sports radio in the iheartradio APP. We will get to the titans, bengals and Raiders Brown's coming up later on before the end of the hour. But from there we go to Kansas City where right now the chiefs on pregame.com are a nineteen and a half point favorite hosting the jets. So other than the two, thousand nine, nineteen, Miami Dolphins, this is the biggest line of any NFL game since two thousand thirteen. I mean this isn't like. Oh, every day you're GONNA get a line of nineteen and a half. Personally. I can't play either side. On one hand Kansas City is the ultimate flip the switch team. And there's ever a time to keep the switch off until maybe you need to this game and number two though I can't play the jets 'cause they're shockingly bad I mean entering the year Faz the jets were what twenty second twenty third ranked based on the the win totals. Yeah. They were supposed to win seven games crazy and I'll tell you something right now if you look at the numbers and on some numbers, this is true. The distance from number thirty to the jets to number thirty, one Jacksonville that distance. Is Literally the same as Jacksonville to the number sixteen team an average team to the number thirty one team is about the same distance statistically as thirty one to thirty two. That's how bad the jets are. Actually laying the nine hundred and this is my number seven pick I went back and watched that jets game. The jets got four yards. In the second half I've never seen such a dysfunctional football team I'm laying at Rj, you forget though. He had the kissing disease. I mean I. I'm not sure the SAM darnold recovered. For Mono don't judge him fed by the way. If you ever wondered the genius of the bed I made against fads the fact he's laying twenty points is proof positive that the fact that the game hasn't kicked off yet and you already down twenty? That's Very humbling feeling rj it's the debut to tug of I. Lois I ever. NFL. Star. He played a little bit a couple of weeks ago, but it's the dolphins hosting the rams as we continue on here where right now the La Rams are three and a half point favorite on pregame.com I, acquire aggregate information and I like to give credit where credit's due the ringer football podcast had this and. When I heard it I called a friend of mine who played in the League and they said, absolutely. Left handed quarterbacks there's a reason you don't see him because it's an entirely different. Direction, literally, the blindside is opposite and everything strong side all those kind of football asked XS and os things flip one eighty up up down down his up and I believe that to our or. Two. In the long term in the term, even in five weeks is going to be right there potentially as good as fits magic. But right now, especially, even after the by one of his starting with that left handed quarterback situation, I think this is tougher for a first time starter than any. In it's not being accounted for properly. Anything in this game says I'm passing. Since Byron. Jones came to you. Love you love the rams came down to three. I Baron Jones has really made a difference for the defense for Miami Byron Jones made the difference the the easiest growing in the now gets dropping gold. Their feet, the La chargers are a three point favorite at the broncos. I one to think about how much respect I like to say every spread tells a story. Think about the respect that the chargers are getting here. So I would make the case in Denver with the altitude two points for Homefield. Yes except that. Okay. So it would be about a four point swing. Let's just go broadly here. So if this game were in. Los Angeles. The line would be over a touchdown right? Well, I guess now. Worth three. What's occur number on this rivalry charges lane three, the charges Elaine three. So you go four and four. Yeah. We'd be at a touchdown, right? If it's two, four, hundred, twenty, two points, the other. So meaning if you swapped home, could you imagine? If. I guess the question is why I tend to agree with it I think the charges are sneaky good. But back, even ten years ago, fifteen years ago they would've looked at these teams and said same record and maybe charge a little better because Herbert's better than lock. Okay. No they're saying that at Denver this team with two wins is a three point favorite. That's a ton of charges respect and it shows you how sharp the market is these days. I mean, even if the line doesn't make sense, they're still going to do it. If they know it's right to Chicago we go where the saints are at the bears and New Orleans is a five point favorite. This is a FAZ and you don't have this pick. So I'M GONNA use it with attribution. This is a great point. The wind is whipping. And as we talk about. Wind is much more of an impediment to offenses than. Code then participate a rain. Snow sleet any that's fine. Relative to win. So you're thinking okay, it's windy. Doesn't that hurt noodle arm? With the saints okay. Maybe. But what we know for sure is it hurts all passing teams And you'd think where the bears they can run the ball as federally points out. If you look at the bears efficiency rushing, it's horrendous. This is one of the most dependent teams on the past the bears. Were the most dependent teams in the past in the entire foul. So now you've got weather that's GonNa make it very hard to pass. I don't care about the new to warm. Would I know you've got Kamara playmakers and you got a brilliant tactician with Sean Payton they can used wind their advantage or least mitigate the hindrance. So fast great handicapping tidbit there I lean towards the saints calling and I talked about this on. His today is if you look at the saints because it's going to be November first so I'm thinking Oh. The saints had that great record in November. But if you actually look at week seven, eight and nine, which is fair I think saints record is just as good. It's shockingly good. So in general, this is the time of year the saints. Excel, and I believe the win has a sneaky disadvantage for the bears. Forty niners at the seahawks Seattle is a three point favorite. John was non like make sense is like it's your information, right? Yeah. I mean just giving it this great nod like man that's smart staff. It's like it's your own stuff. Stay you don't. Yeah. Pat Myself on the back. Here's the thing. Seattle's the most overrated team in the NFL in my opinion but I don't know what the combination of injuries and fatigue is GonNa do the forty niners and the forty niners have been clawing and scraping and they dominate the pats and everyone's like their back they dominate the rams. Okay. Fine. But it will point. Is there a letdown Seattle had a tough game last week but they lost so in theory the extra focused my instinct says go San Fran but as the week progressed appre sensitive about it. You got anything on the more I think about why did I bet San Fran plus three last week? Why would I bet them plus three at a much much better team Seattle versus New England so I I did it last week I was one of my best beds but I'll let you have my pigs it selling a couple hundred bucks a week. No big deal but the amount it's going to be fine. Be Sure to catch live editions of straight Outta Vegas Weekdays at six PM Eastern Three PM Pacific on Fox sports radio in the iheartradio. APP.

We continue our preview of the NFL, This Weekend Vegas style, and we start our RJ in prime time where the NFC east will be showcased. It's the Eagles and eleven point favorite on pregame.com hosting the cowboys. Now, lot of people might say, why wasn't this game? Dow Well, you think about it when you drive by a wreck on the highway, you look. Always. So here's what I say. I don't like that is now in double digits. But I like the Eagles And I think in the super contact almost certain. We'll have the eagles. Here's why when you bet on A. Big Underdog usually, not batting that underdogs better than you think we're GONNA play. Well, you're batting the. Is, not, going to put maximum effort. But whenever you gotTA favorite who puts in maximum effort like in the playoffs when you have a big favor or road favorite off a by those teams do exceptionally well, Philadelphia will have maximum effort no doubt about it. So I certainly would not be playing Dallas. I have to play Dallas. Yes. Lost the eleven eleven rj this line was seven and a half earlier in the week Philly on offense Saudi, Donald Apply I. Don't think many thought he was going to play Philly Dr Fazio thank you. have to healthy starters left on offense. They might get a couple of guys back I'm GonNa take the value in Dallas, there is value it's the wrong side. In fact, let's double. Let's do an extra bat on that one way nine though right eleven we'll talk about it. We'll talk about it. So RJ following their big come from behind win over the Cincinnati Bengals last week it is the Cleveland Browns at home hosting the LAS. Vegas Raiders Cleveland is a two and a half point favorite. Just you know Jonas is. The somehow coincidentally like the browns also and. He would want that to be best bat but I thought I'm GONNA throw them. I'm going to rattle him and I took it from him. Now he's having to do another best bat to get ready for that could be like a wreck on the highway kind of thing. This is the stat. If you look at expected points added, and then you look at it with in addition to the expected completion rate. So two stats are added together by a lot of analytics people and they get a composite number and it's a great judge how good the quarterback is just simple sense. So right now, you look at all games Russell will or elements of the game all games. Wilson. Is Number One Tanna hill was number two and Baker Mayfield's number seventeen. Okay. Sounds about right. But I got to thinking boy Baker plays bad when he's behind. So I did a search and I said I wanna see only plays it happened when the team has either better than a twenty percent chance to win or less than eighty. So effectively it's in the middle were a competitive game if you're up in the nineties doesn't games over if you're down in the teens. CANS. Doesn't Count Games pretty much over just when the game competitive. So it's like seventy percent of the snaps for a typical team. Yes, it's true. The number one quarterback in the N. F. L.. Under that criteria when it's a competitive game is Baker no way. Yeah. I'M GONNA put the stats up to the pen to the decimal up on my twitter at our Jane Vegas I'll do that within an hour. So I'll do it Saturday, morning actually. Get, bigger audience this is a shocker so I, love the browns. I. Love it a two and a half. This is like that cake, but it's been guarded by the secret service it so much value. So delicious one of my top five picks of the year browns. And I liked the browns. Also I liked the fact the raiders can't rush the passer, their bottom three team in sacks, and what's the one thing we worry about Baker when he gets rushed. It's a lot of acquaintances. But listen let's say this. You might as well emulate from your. Heroes. The titans are at the Bengals and Tennessee. A seven point favorite on pregame.com. And this is my best bet cincinnati plus seven. The titans are over rated. They're five and one but they're only my number thirteen team the titans have four close. Versus losing teams that could have gone either way and just last week we saw the titans go plus three and turnovers against the steelers in a tough physical game and frankly was only that close because of those turnovers I want to bet against the titans I'm GonNa, take the line value and the bengals plus the seven. I gotTa tell you this one phases. Yesterday. You had a strong show today at a strong show I mean I'm not sure that this has been strongest shows always gotTa do is get lucky and win a few games and he's just a static kudos and Jonas I will say this nobody.
