Morning coffee: FanDuel’s best bets for Monday night football matches

The Buffalo Bills are a 10-point favorite for their Monday Night Football showdown with the Tennessee Titans at FanDuel this morning.

Hopefully, for anyone who’s ever bet on them, the Bills perform better than some of this week’s other double-digit NFL favorites on Sunday.

The Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos failed to cover in narrow wins.

It was nothing compared to the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Las Vegas Raiders, Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, who each lost as 3.5 or more point favorites at FanDuel. .

As someone who has already put the points with Buffalo at -9.5, I hope Josh Allen and company can maintain the level of play they exhibited in their win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1 and make a statement in their home opener tonight. .

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles are set to host the Minnesota Vikings in a game that could become very important in the future when it comes to determining playoff seeding in the NFC.

I’ve already bet on a few key player props for this game, but before we get to the best FanDuel bets, let’s review a few key lessons I learned on Sunday.

Here is the Morning Coffee for Monday, September 19e2022.

Five Lessons I Learned NFL Sunday Week 2

It was a real punch to follow a 5-1 start to the week on Thursday Night Football going 7-11 with my games for Sunday.

Either way, I still have a chance to finish in the green in Week 2, and I can use some of the bets I made and didn’t make on Sunday to learn some key lessons. to keep moving forward.

Here are five lessons I learned on Sunday:

The Bengals are not who I thought they were.

I jumped on Cincinnati -6.5 thinking I was getting a cut price bet on a team with Super Bowl aspirations against an opponent who had just lost their franchise quarterback and was without their wide receiver n ° 2.

Only half of that was true.

I got the price cut before the spread went to 7.5, then finally settled on 7, but Joe Burrow and the Bengals couldn’t even beat Cooper Rush and the Cowboys.

Ja’Marr Chase was held under his receiving yard prop at 75.5 with five catches for 54 yards in the loss.

Maybe Cincinnati is bouncing back and fighting for a Super Bowl this season after all.

I don’t expect it after starting 0-2 with back-to-back losses as a 7.5-point favorite to Dallas and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

You can’t win by trying to interpret injury reports.

After being burned with a 0-2 bet on Elijah Mitchell’s rushing props even though I knew he was dealing with a lingering injury, I hesitated to bet on D’Andre Swift’s overs on Sunday.

Swift rushed for 56 yards and finished with three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Washington Commanders.

I won’t forget that one.

Don’t bet against Brady.

I bet against Tom Brady in the NFC championship game and it worked for me, but it’s not something I’ve done often and it’s not something I’m looking to start doing this year.

It burned on me on Sunday as the New Orleans Saints couldn’t keep it within three points in a 20-10 loss.

Brady led the Bucs to victory without Mike Evans or Chris Godwin or Julio Jones on the field.

I won’t be betting against Brady anytime soon.

Wait till you see with Barkley

I was ready to buy Saquon Barkley after a dominating start to the season with 194 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in a win over the Tennesee Titans.

However, Barkley was limited to 72 rushing yards on 21 attempts by the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, losing six yards before hitting the overhand rushing yard accessory at FanDuel.

Which version of Barkley are we more likely to get in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys?

The Broncos are not Super Bowl contenders

After losing their opener to the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos struggled to earn a 16-9 win over the Houston Texans at home.

Next, Wilson will face another former NFC West rival as Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers travel to Denver.

I didn’t bet for or against the Broncos on Sunday, but I considered taking the points with the Houston Texans at +10 and wish I had.

FanDuel Best Bets for Monday Night Football

We get not one, but two highly anticipated matchups tonight in the NFL.

First, the Bills will show their fans whether or not they can replicate the positives and eliminate the negatives of their Week 1 win over the Rams when they host the Titans in their home opener at residence.

Buffalo flipped a switch in last year’s playoffs, and it seemed to carry over to their victory in Los Angeles.

I think Allen and company are picking up where they left off and trying to make a statement against an opponent who has gotten the better of them for the past few years.

I bet the Bills -9.5 at FanDuel.

Meanwhile, the Vikings and Eagles have the potential to challenge for an NFC championship this season, and tonight’s showdown could determine who has the edge when it comes to playoff seeding at the end of the season. .

Minnesota and Philadelphia have two of the best players in the game at wide receiver in Justin Jefferson and AJ Brown.

Jefferson was my pick to win Offensive Player of the Year honors pre-season and as he stole the show in Week 1, Brown made a standout debut for the Eagles.

Both players know this will be presented as a marquee receivers showdown and they will want to make a difference in tonight’s game.

Their quarterbacks will also want to lean on their key point guards to ensure they escape with a prime-time victory.

In a game that I think could feature plenty of fireworks, I bet on Jefferson to pass 97.5 receiving yards and Brown for 73.5 receiving yards at FanDuel.

The Aces celebrate the WNBA Championship

The Las Vegas Aces are the 2022 WNBA Champions.

The Aces defeated the Connecticut Sun 78-71 to clinch the title with a 3-1 series win.

This is the third time in four years that a team has won its first-ever title.

Las Vegas was the second pick to win the championship early in the season at +360.
