The Conductor’s NFL Week 2 Recap and Monday Night Preview

Week 2 is in the books and luckily the Bears pulled out a push for the Conductor with a last second field goal to beat the Broncos by 2 yesterday. Otherwise the Conductor would have put his train up for sale today to protect his knee caps. With two weeks of capping and game tape in the books, the Conductor has learned a few things.

  1. Every team in the NFL is mediocre or bad besides the Patriots and the Chiefs. Watching the 4:00 games yesterday made his eyes bleed. There is so much bad football being played and heinous quarter back play is rampant.
  2. Speaking of QB’s – Eli Manning, Kirk Cousins, Joe Flacco, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan are all veteran QB’s who will not be backed with a cent of the Conductor’s money under any circumstance until proven otherwise. Eli and Flacco may even be auto bet against’s for the Conductor as long as they remain in the league.
  3. You should not go to the bars two hours before the 1:00pm games when you are going to be drinking stew thru the Sunday night game.

#3 is up for debate.

Tonight’s matchup is a tough one from a gambling perspective.

Cleveland Browns -6.5 @ New York Jets

Cleveland goes into NY after a disappointing week 1 performance and take on the Jets with Trevor Siemian under center. The Jets offense already looked inept with Darnold last week, but the Conductor doesn’t see much of a drop off with Siemian. The Browns have a significant talent edge on offense, but what have they proven? Nothing yet.

All the passengers are on the Browns. 75% of the public are backing the Baker and Odell hype train. The Conductor hates the bet, but he’s not going to back a 6.5 point favorite on the road who lost by 30 last week.  Backing the Jets is gross, however the Conductor is a man of principle.

Lunch Money Play:

Jets +6.5

The Conductor’s Monday Night Football Recap

MMmmmmmmmmmm Swwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppppp!

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.

The Conductor’s Monday Night Football Picks

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.

Car Payment Plays

Raiders +3, Raiders Moneyline +140
