The Mormons prevail for the Conductor again yesterday, so the Conductor’s football wallet is fat. He can’t wait to double down.
Car Payment Play
Chicago Bears -2 @ Denver Broncos
This the only game the Conductor loves this Sunday. The Bears put up an embarrassing offensive performance in week 1 and travel to mile high after a few extra days do look themselves in the mirror and prepare. Chicago’s defense is still one of the best in the league and they are going to devour Joe Flacco who is exactly who the Conductor thought he was. The Conductor doesn’t see this one being close. Final Score – Chicago 24 Denver 10
This line opened at 5 and has moved all the way up to 7 for the Panthers. Carolina didn’t look great in their opener against the Rams. Their defense looks decent, but the Conductor still has questions about Cam. He still looks like he’s off to him and they don’t have many weapons on offense besides McCaffrey.
Tampa Bay lost their debut to San Francisco all thanks to Jamies’s TWO pick 6’s. How long can the Bucs ride with this guy? He has talent but is the most careless with the football in the NFL. The Conductor doesn’t like this game and would not be surprised by any result. However, 7 is a little too high for him in a divisional game and he can’t just sit on his hands while football is on. We all have flaws. Bucs +7 it is.
3-0 for the Conductor last night, the games played out exactly how he envisioned in his crystal ball. If I were the pony gods, I would be very weary that a hot Ductor is rolling the train into Belmont tomorrow. It’s a press week for the Conductor and that means the track better not leave any part of its neck exposed. He will be solely going for gullets. Now we play the waiting game on this calm Tuesday. Sleep tight Belmont.
2-2 yesterday in the NFL for the Conductor, but his lone car payment play was the easiest winner on the card. The Patriots throttled the Steelers with the greatest of ease and the Conductor slept like a baby last night.
Two Monday night matchups tonight is a nice treat and the Conductor likes one a lot. Nothing like getting up on your bookmaker with a full week ahead, that’s when you really get to attack.
Houston +7 @ New Orleans
This line has gone down to 6.5 this week, which is intriguing because the public is obviously backing a very good Saints team at home. The Conductor likes Houston’s addition of Duke Johnson and sees Deshaun Watson and the offense putting up points in this one. Houston has a solid defense as well, so the Conductor is leaning towards taking the points in a competitive game. The Conductor must have at least few chips in the pot and he loves being on the opposite side of the herd of public sheep he likes to call passengers.
Lunch Money Play: Houston +7
Denver -3 @ Oakland
This line has swung 6 points after the Antonio Brown saga and departure from the Raiders. Oakland has had plenty of distractions this off-season and the public is sprinting to bet Denver with 70% of the tickets on the Broncos. Let the passengers tire themselves out, the Conductor will wait and pounce when their legs are weary. These Broncos are no thoroughbreds. The Conductor loves Oakland in this one. David Carr in his 2nd season under Gruden will be much improved and is miles better than Joe Flacco who has been dead for the last decade. The Raiders will be better on defense this year and the black hole will be rocking at night. Denver is going to struggle to score and the Conductor sees the Raiders winning outright.
BYU stealing a victory in Tennessee made it a great Saturday night for the Conductor. He had a nice omelette this morning along with a stew and a cup of Vonlunteers’ tears.
Tasty. The First NFL Sunday, Let’s Ride.
Lunch Money Plays
Atlanta +3.5 @ Minnesota, Moneyline +165
Jacksonville +3.5 vs Kansas City, Moneyline +160
Cincinnati +9.5 @ Seattle
Car Payment Play
New England -5.5 vs Pittsburgh – The Patriots have a better team than they did last year. Their defense has talent across the board and they have depth at receiver and running back. They do not have any weaknesses and always dominate the Steelers at home. The rich get richer and the Conductor will too.
The Conductor must do better than last week, MUST. At least he has a week of tape under his belt. Let’s Ride.
Lunch Money Plays
Rutgers @ Iowa Over 48.5
Vanderbilt +7 @ Purdue, Vanderbilt +225 M/L
Texas A&M +16.5 @ Clemson
LSU -6.5 @ Texas
Car Payment Plays
Michigan -22 vs Army – Michigan is not going to let up points vs the triple option. Army is going to get throttled.
BYU +3.5 @ Tennessee, BYU +150 M/L – BYU should be favored in this game. Tennesse’s loss to Georgia State was no fluke, they suck. The Cougars played one of the best defenses in the country last week and the Conductor sees them bouncing back in a big way. BYU’s defense is solid and QB Zach Wilson is going to show his true self tonight. This line is asinine.
After a rough first weekend for the Conductor betting the amateurs, words cannot describe how happy he is that professional football is back.
We have a hell of a divisional game to start the season and the line that opened at 4 and has been hopping between 3 and 4 all day. Green Bay is entering the year with a new staff and a healthy Aaron Rodgers after a subpar 2018, and the Bears are returning one of the best defenses in the league and a more experienced Mitch Trubisky.
The Conductor made a lot of money last year betting against Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers quit on McCarthy and the Packers needed a change. The Conductor sees Rodgers coming out of the gates flying this year and having a MVP type year now that he’s gotten his way.
The Conductor is also still very skeptical of Trubisky. He shows flashes of solid play and doesn’t have to do much with that defense, but he makes some terrible decisions and is inaccurate. In the first game of the year, on a warm night in Chicago, the Conductor sees this spread as too high for anything over 3. He’s taking Green Bay outright as well. Your getting +155 on this man:
The Utes kicked the Conductor right in the teeth to start the 2019 college football season, typical. That game was absolute torcher to watch from a BYU backer’s perspective. It was 9-6 Utah at halftime and BYU had controlled the game. They moved it into the RedZone twice and settled for field goals and Utah’s TD came on a panic pick 6. BYU should have been up 14-3 at half and the Conductor knew he was in trouble when they didn’t take advantage of their opportunities early.
In the 2nd half Utah ran it right down the Cougars’ gullets, but we still had a chance to cover if BYU didn’t hand Utah two TD’s off unforced turnovers. The Conductor likes both teams moving forward, but BYU did him no favors last night.
Wake Forest -4 vs Utah State
The Conductor’s chase game tonight is down in Winston Salem. The Demon Deacons have improved mightily the last few years under head coach Dave Clawson and are getting much better recruits. Utah State is coming in off a great 10-2 season, but their head coach left and most of their returning production on offense is gone. The smaller schools can’t reload like the big boys. Both teams will put up points in this one, but Wake will ware them out late with their wicked tempo at home under the lights. The Conductor sees the Deacons winning by at last a touchdown.
