|Team||Opp||Last5||H/A||STR||WG O/U||WG ML||Caesars O/U||Caesars ML||CGT O/U||CGT ML||BreakDown|
|New Orleans Saints||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||3-2||6-2||0||-550||49.5||-500||0||-500||87.5||-550||0||-550||49||-556||49.5||-450||-9.5: Saints begin their season with Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers coming to town. With this sitting under double digits still, I can see New Orleans making a statement early. With no Mark Ingram, expect Alvin Kamara all the time and the home defense to put a lot of pressure on Tampa’s offense. Fitzpatrick gets the first three games with Jameis Winston out and not a whole lot to work with in the running game. If you take a look at Fitzy’s second season with a team (CIN, BUF,NYJ) his combined record is 11-24 with 43 touchdowns and 41 interceptions. Laying the points with the Saints in a rout.|
|Cleveland Browns||Pittsburgh Steelers||3-2||5-2||41||155||41||160||41||155||35.5||120||41||165||40.5||160||41.5||156||Under: Heading into Sunday, there’s a new-found excitement in Cleveland, for what reason I don’t know. Steelers have a major question mark in their backfield with no Le'Veon Bell yet and send Big Ben on the road, where he is significantly average. Early weather concerns with high winds and rain means this one gets the under stamp. Too many variables to see points getting thrown on the board.|
