Hey, what’s up, everybody? Johnny Sawbucks is back this week with another amazing slate of picks for you. This is the third week that I am combining NFL and NCAA picks. I am 2-0 in my free picks in these articles, so hopefully, I’m making some of you some money, and you’re thinking about jumping on to buy my picks package. I want to start out this week by saying buying picks is not just for those who don’t know what they are doing and need guidance. A lot of handicappers look at other picks as well, the more people feeling the same bet the more confidence it gives. Also if you start to see people picking against you perhaps you take a closer look before placing your money on the other side. So 9.99 is a pretty cheap way of getting just a little more confidence heading into the weekend. Whether you want to buy the picks and bet them all, set it and forget it style, or you want to compare to what you were already thinking, its 10 picks in today’s package for less than a vig on a $100 wager. That being said this week I’m giving out a DOUBLE FREE PICK.
My free picks this week are two teams that play in the same stadium. Both underdogs, both against a 2019 powerhouse. We are talking about the Miami Hurricanes and the Miami Dolphins. Both these teams are getting way too many points and playing really well. I know you could look at the Dolphins and say really this team is playing well? Look beyond their 1-3 record and see the bigger picture. They lost the opener in Gillette to the Patriots that’s bound to happen. They lost by 3 to the Bills who are looking like a runaway train these days, and they lost to the Seahawks 31-23 in a game that was 17-15 heading into the 4th quarter. The 49ers are coming off a loss to a BAD Eagles team. Their only two wins are against the two worst teams in the NFL, and they simply put are not last year’s 49ers team. That doesn’t stop Vegas from creating lines like they are. Both teams are 2-2 ATS and this week we will see Miami as the team that gets to 3-2.
As for the Hurricanes, these boys are going to come out to play! They have looked amazing this year and there is no reason to believe the team averaging 499 yards per game and 43.3 PPG is just going to come out and fold to this Clemson team. This is Miami’s biggest game on the schedule, it’s the biggest game of the weekend, and it will be a close game until the bitter end. If your feeling froggy, you might even want to leap on that +400 money line. That’s great odds for a game I believe will come down to the final possession.
MIAMI HURRICANES +14
MIAMI DOLPHINS +9
Another great week in DFS as I once again placed in the top 10% of my weekly double up. Everyone likes to play DFS differently. I love the double-ups play one big one likes its a bet on a game. This season I am 4-0 in double-ups and with my information, you could be too!
These weeks value player of the week is Chase Edmonds. I’ll fill you in on a strategy I have. You have 50K in starting salary. I have never scored 150 points and not doubled up. Therefore when picking a player I look at their salary and ask myself, can this player score 3 times that in points. If the answer is yes I’m in on him. If not I’ll keep looking. Chase Edmonds is $4,700 meaning scoring anything over 14.1 points and he has a positive value to my lineup. This week not only are the Cardinals facing an awful run defense in the New York Jets, but the coach of the Cardinals was quoted in August as saying he believes Chase Edmonds could be their main guy. Chase has been playing great and Drake has been doing just the opposite. Look for this to be the week the Edmonds finally steals that starting position. I predict Chase gets 20+ fantasy points this week.
