A disappointing week for myself last week, I blame the weather. I got the Dolphins offense right, I just wasn't expecting their defense and special teams to have a field day against Jared Goff and the Rams. The stat-line for that game was remarkable, the Dolphins won 28-17 with 145 yards of offense, 8 first downs to the Rams 31! – A very random game. – Lev Bell was terrible on the ground, 7 yards from 6 attempts, annoyingly he topped his receiving yards early on, not his rush yards, and the Titans were very poor against my Bengals team.

There were winners abound in the comments section though so always worth a look down there before kick off. A little chat on mid-season and looking at the playoffs as well, Paddypower are actually offering win totals still which is tidy. I will try and get a post together, maybe for tomorrow actually with the Monday night football probably a dismal pathetic affair this week. What I will say is that the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers have the 5th easiest schedule based on teams current wins, while the 49ers have the toughest as a result of being in the NFC West. Not an exact science by any means, but should provide a guide for the rest of the season.


A few catch my eye this week. I don't think the Ravens (-1) will lose two games in a row, they were the better team vs. the Steelers last week but mistakes cost them. The Seahawks (-3) is tempting going across the country to take on the Bills. The Steelers should cover -14 against the Cowboys but have a habit of playing down to their opposition especially on the road so that's an avoid.

I'll take the Texans -6.5 now that it's dropped below a TD for them. They've only won one game this year but that was against this Jaguars team. They have looked better since Bill O'Brien was removed and should be able to put up points coming off their bye week here. Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks will have appreciated the rest and both of their tight ends are healthy and ready to go (Akins and Fells) I think they'll put up 24+ on their side of the ball.

The other side of it will probably be a whole lot of James Robinson in the run game as he faces the 27th ranked run defense of the Texans. They've decided that they'll see what they've got in 6th round rookie Jake Luton at QB. Rookie QBs usually struggle (as Tua did last week, despite the result) and he hasn't exactly got a lot of talent to throw to although Chark and Shenault haven't been terrible.

It's below a TD and that was the “go price” for me – Texans -6.5 best priced 1.91 at Skybet and Betfred

Player prop

It doesn't look like there are any weather issues this week, so I think we're on a level playing field again after being enticed by some “good prices” last week which flamed out completely. So in theory should be a decent range of props to choose through. Quite a few reception lines I like again, the likes of John Brown, James Robinson, Keenan Allen all good lines, Justin Herbert passing yards looks good at Skybet, he's gone over his line on there every game he's played but the possibility of Allen being out is a slight worry there.

So I'll go with Big Irv. Irv Smith Jnr. in Minnesota. He's their main tight end now leading the position in snaps for the last couple of games now. The gamescript got away from him last week as he only caught 1 pass in their run-heavy game against the Packers, but in dome against a poor Lions defense I'm hopeful he'll return to the 4 per game he had in the couple of games before that.

Irv Smith jnr. o2.5 receptions – 2.00 (365/Skybet/Hills)

TD Scorer

Quite a few tight end prices I like again, Albert Okwuegbunam and Noah Fant for the Broncos against a Falcons team who have conceded 8 TDs to the TE in 8 games. Irv Smith (for the reasons above). I like Kyler Murray who's scored in every game bar the one I tipped him for this season, they're without Kenyan Drake at RB, so it's probably him and Chase Edmonds leading the rush yards, although Eno Benjamin at 13/1 isn't a terrible longshot. – EDIT: Apparently it's likely to be DJ Foster as the backup, no mention of Eno whom I automatically assumed would be the man

But I've got to look at the highest total of the week as the Seahawks take on the Bills. Will it be a DK or a Tyler Lockett week? I'm hoping, given the Bills have Tre'davious White patrolling the perimeter that it will be a Tyler Lockett week. They're poor at defending the middle of the field so the likes of Lockett in the slot and Will Dissly/Greg Olsen have got favourable matchups in the middle the park. Lockett has shown this year that he's capable of putting up big games with two 3 TD games this season already. He's Russ' favourite target and should see a lot of the ball tonight.

Tyler Lockett anytime – 11/10 (PP/Betfair)

Utter shot in the dark, but also in the Miami v Arizona game – Salvon Ahmed. The Dolphins are down to their 4th/5th string RBs and while they will probably have Jordan Howard as the #1 they obviously don't like him. So I believe it's this fella as the next man up. He's 5/1 on 365, yet 25/1 on PP so I've had a tiny bet on him there.


  • Spread – Texans -6.5 – 1.91 (Skybet/Betfred)
  • Player prop – Irv Smith o2.5 receptions – 2.00 (365/Skybet)
  • TD Scorer – Tyler Lockett – 11/10 (Paddypower/Betfair)

Good Luck with whatever you're on, enjoy the action!

    Going for an acca -6. 5 Texans, Seahawks -3, Vikings -3 and chiefs -9. 5 odds 12.63/1
    Also like lockett to score a td as do I like Kyler Murray to run one in both 11/10 each
    I like Murray to go over 43.5 rushing yds too the dolphins d is good but struggle against qbs that like to run odds only 8/11 so back him to go over along with running a td in 2.4/1
    Bears/Titans under 47 points, panthers/chiefs over 50.5 points 2.64/1

    • TDTips 9 months ago

      Murray rush yards looks good, may have to go in again on that. I’ve got Lockett and Murray in a double but like his yards too

    • Inches 9 months ago

    • Inches 9 months ago

      Well done!!

  5. TDTips 9 months ago

    Irv Smith has scored 2 TDs and I’m gonna lose my receptions bet

  6. TDTips 9 months ago

    I mean, as far as shit losses go. Texans conceding a rushing TD to a rookie QB with a minute left and the Irv Smith thing. As well as Lockett stopped at the 1.

    It’s been a rough few weeks

    • Inches 9 months ago

      Unlucky mate. It will all click very soon.

  7. bigmick 9 months ago

    Very unlucky Adam. Nicely done NFL fan and badko I got my double on the overs/understand bet. Acca was a disaster. Inches unlucky as well.

    • Inches 9 months ago

      Always 1 Mick lol

  8. bigmick 9 months ago


  9. nflfan 9 months ago

    Thanks bigmick and inches ☘️👍

  10. TDTips 9 months ago

    52 yards rushing for Kyler in the first half. Cracking bet from Mick

  11. bigmick 9 months ago

    Thanks Adam, could the cowboys beat the Steelers? The phins-cards game has been an exciting shootout so far. I want my dolphins to win but if Murray can run one in it will be a great night. I’ve got a same game multi on odds just over 21/1 Murray to score, over the rushing yds, Kirk over the receiving yds (he got that with the td alone, and phins +5.5. Just need them to keep it tight and Murray to score 2nd half.

    • Inches 9 months ago

      Unreal with the same game multi mate. What site does that? Small bet tonight for me, under 42.5 points and jets +8.5. 5/2 fancy very low scoring game. Gl all!

  12. bigmick 9 months ago

    There’s the td to go with now 92 yds rushing for Murray

  13. nflfan 9 months ago

    Well in mick

  14. dj76 9 months ago

    Brady & Brees each to have 1+ passing TD’s in each half 6/1 @ PP.

  15. bigmick 9 months ago

    Tonight’s game looks like it could be a scrappy one don’t think I’ll be staying up to watch it. The jets are down right bad and the patriots haven’t been all that great either. I’m going to try 2 bets tonight though
    Flacco under 209.5 passing yds 5/6
    Patriots defense/special teams to score a td 10/3
    I’m more confident in Flacco going under the yds. I would of possibly put the double with Newton going under the passing yds too but I’m not willing to back the jets d😂

    • TDTips 9 months ago

      Oh yeah. I’m not even bothering with a preview on my site for tonight’s game, better things to do with my life than 1000 words on Jets V Pats.

      Jets are historically terrible. Flacco starting makes them even worse.

      The Pats should win fairly comfortably still, but I’m not backing anything there.

      James White rec yards is 23, receptions is 3.5 both fairly good.

      Mims has 42 yards in both games so far his line is 30.5

  16. TDTips 9 months ago

    White with 24 off 4 receptions. Mims 62 yards.

    Of course both win when I don’t write anything up
