Week 1 Record: 3-1
Overall Record: 3-1
If you bet with the Menace last week, you went 3-1 and increased your bank roll. KC and New England covered with ease. The Bengals led the entire game and probably should have won. Our Randy Bullock game-winner prediction did backfire a little bit though! PRAY FOR FAT RANDY!!
We will be tracking every week as we can continue to try to beat the professionals. A gambling reminder to stay disciplined and just bet the games that you truly feel confident about. Majority of the time, if you are unsure or just betting to be betting, you are going to lose.
Here are your week 2 NFL Menace Locks:
Lock #1 – CINCINNATI (+6.5) at Cleveland
Quick turn around for the Bengals and Browns. Cleveland looked like absolute DAWG sh*t week one at Baltimore. They were surely one of the biggest disappointments of the weekend. In hindsight, BAL should’ve been a lock considering the Browns haven’t won a season opener since they returned to Cleveland. Conventional wisdom says take them to bounce back and cover at home. Not so fast, though. The Bengals crushed them week 17 last year and come in relatively healthy and hungry. Expect Joe Mixon to play well vs an already banged up Browns defense. This is going to be a competitive game and an early elimination game in the AFC North standings with the Steelers and Ravens looking promising week one. Take the points with Joe Burrow who last week looked about as nervous Wilt Chamberlain in the bedroom.
Suggested Player Prop: Joe Mixon Over 87.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards
Lock #2 – Atlanta at DALLAS (-4)
Dallas should bounce back in a must win at home vs the Falcons. Much like last year’s story lines, they probably should’ve won at LAR but they found a way to lose. Now they turn around with their backs against the wall vs a team who simply isn’t that good. We like Dallas to win and cover the spread week 2 in a spot play. Don’t overthink it.
Lock #3 – Underdog Lock – NEW ENGLAND (+4) at Seattle
Once again, it’s the Patriots. With a chip on their collective shoulder. They won with a conservative approach week one, a comfortable dub and cover but Cam Newton is capable of more. If I’m getting four points with Belichick and a pissed off Patriots defense in primetime, I’ve gotta be crazy to go against that. Seattle usually thrives off their home crowd. Would the number be bigger with fans in seats? Take the Pats.
Lock #4 – New Orleans (-5.5) at Las Vegas
The Saints are good. That’s all there is to it. Las Vegas won as a slight favorite week one and now they return on MNF vs a potential Super Bowl team. Sure, Mike Thomas is out but with the addition of Emanuel Sanders, the Saints have plenty of guns in the artillery. They will win by a touchdown at least on the road to get to 2-0. Las Vegas could begin the game strong but ultimately will be satisfied with starting out their 1-1.
