WEIRDLY the Eric Ebron line has drifted. Can’t see for the life of me why. I have the Pats winning by double digits so Luck will have to throw and he’s not got that many targets to do so outside of Ebron.
The Patriots bounced back from their poor start and knocked the 3-0 Dolphins out of the Gillette early, which must have been a wake-up call for Miami, and likely smashed a few division hopes out their heads.
As said Luck will be without multiple weapons tonight, and while he performed well in week 4, it’ll be a tough crowd in Boston.
The LA Rams travel to Seattle in what will likely be a win that will almost seal their division (payout time for me). Not by maths but more mind, as they’ll have a road win against a divisional opponent who is realistically the only team that could have got close to LA looking at the first month of the season.
LA will know this too and McVay will have them in the right mindset for this. Seattle’s Legion came to an end on Sunday with Earl Thomas fracturing his leg (flipping the bird to the bench as he was carted off). Not ideal when you have one of the most versatile passing attacks in the NFL coming to town.
