Pat Mayo breaks down the Thursday night game between the Jetsa and Browns
What is the path for the Giants +3 this weekend?
Pat Mayo says that it's all about slowing down Ezekiel Elliott and exploiting the Dallas defense in a way that they couldn't against Jacksonville in Week 1
Coming off a short week after playing Monday and heading into another short week with playing the Browns next Thursday, Pat Mayo says that Jets/Dolphins "screams close game coming down to the wire" and that it may be best to take the points and Dolphins +3.
What do you think?
The Giants open the 2018 season was home underdogs to the Jacksonville Jaguars at MetLife Stadium.
Adam Levitan thinks that the line is at 3 because of the "massive" coaching upgrade the Giants got this offseason and that Eli Manning's splits with and without Odell Beckham are absolutely drastic, really, really massive."
Levitan added that right now "the sharp money, the big money and sophisticated betters are mostly on the Giants so far."
The Giants over/under for the 2018 season is 6.5 wins and Pat Mayo of the DraftKing Sportsbook Minute says that betters have been "smashing" the over.
Why have been betters "smashing" the over:
- Drafting Saquon Barkley
- Getting a healthy Odell Beckham Jr. back
- Upgrade at coach in Pat Shurmur
- "Vastly improved" offensive line
- Playing a last place schedule
- Games against the AFC South
Charles Barkley explains how the point spread works.
Charles Barkley explains how a parlay bet works: If you bet on more than one thing to come true you win more than if you just bet on one. If you bet on all three and one doesn't come true, you lose the entire bet.
Charles Barkley explains the moneyline: "betting on the moneyline is betting on who will win and the odds are adjusted for who is favored. If you bet the favorite the payout is smaller because the probabllity of winning is greater. If you bet the underdog, the payout is bigger because the probability of winning is lower."
Charles Barkley explains Live Bets: "you bet on a live game. It makes the games more exciting to watch and the odds and spreads change as the game goes on. Anything can happen, that is the beauty of a live bet."
Charles Barkley explains the Over/Under: "An Over/Under bet is when you choose if the combined scores of both teams will either be over or under the provided total."
