IT was a winning week 1 with both main bets landing for the Packers and Martellus who got his yards on the final play from scrimmage.

Tonight see’s a MNF double header in which the Saints head to Minnesota and newly-homed LA Chargers go east to Denver for a Mile High season opener.

San Diego are the dogs but I feel they hold excellent value. Phillip Rivers is a top 10 QB with his main man back on the field in Keenan Allen. While there is value on the spread I’ve noticed a fairly low line for total sacks considering the players on both sides of the defensive front on the field.

Von Miller and Joey Bona are one-man wrecking crews and could easily tally up this total together accompanied by players like Melvin Ingram and 4th year man Shaq Barrett.

Add to the fact Denver and LA were both in the top-13 teams in allowing sacks last season, this could be a decent total and could go right to the death in what could be an upset.

Meanwhile, rookie running backs have had a good opening weekend. Kareem Hunt, Leonard Fournette and Christian Mcaffery all had big roles in the offence and tonight we see another.

Dalvin Cook is a three down back and has been placed firmly at the top of the Vikings' depth chart. Tonight he faces a Saints defence that has been improved in the off season, putting up numbers which saw them the best pre-season defence.

How that translates into an away game in the regular season, time will tell, but Cook should show what his second round pick was worth.

    Pretty crazy, I read a few articles about the games tonight and took Cooks rushing yards and the sacks in the late game before you’d posted. Let’s hope we’re onto winners. ?

    Early one up for tomorrow nights TNF.

    On Sunday these two teams turned the ball over 9 teams between each other and were ultimately destroyed by their opposition. While Tom Savage was named the starter for the Texans all through the off-season, it wasn’t long before they scrapped that plan and gave the National Championship winning rookie the start he probably deserved, but not at HT. Watson looked much better than Savage, but he’s still a raw talent in the big league and it will take some time before he settles.

    Andy Dalton threw four interceptions in their shutout loss against Baltimore on Sunday, but the odds on him having a bad game like that again with the talent the Bengals offense poses is slim to none. The Texans held Blake Bortles in check, but he did lose his top targets early. Leaonard Fournette ran all over them though, and they’ll hope JJ Watt has recovered from his injury that saw him limited Sunday. Houston are struggling badly on the offensive line and have all three of their tight ends out for tomorrow. Running the ball, and holding off the Bengals strong defensive front will be a challenge.

    Cincinnati Bengals -5.5 @ 89/100 @ Marathon Bet – 5 points
