Cincinnati Reds to Win
Wade Miley has been a gem for the Reds this season with 12 wins and an ERA of under 3. Pirates starter Dillon Peters doesn’t have a win this season, meanwhile, Miley has given up 0 earned runs in 12 innings this season against Pittsburgh.
The Parlay Kid
Tampa Bay Rays to Win
Tampa Bay is 11-3 when entering a game at +115 or greater this season and Rays pitcher Drew Rasmussen has not surrendered more than one run in his last 10 appearances. The Jays bats have been on fire, but Rasmussen will douse the flames as the Rays show the Blue Jays who’s the boss in the AL East.
Seattle Mariners +1.5
I still can’t get over that Raiders game. Pure insanity. It’s hard to get up for Tuesday baseball after a football game like that, but as bettors, we must keep going. The Mariners have been great on the run line as home underdogs, going 31-13. The Red Sox as road favorites are 9-18. Take the Mariners +1.5!
Henry Ruggs Over 2.5 Receptions
I’ll never forgive the Raiders for taking Ruggs over Lamb, but that doesn’t mean he’s a total bust. I have to think Gruden has spent the offseason trying to find better ways to get the ball to Ruggs. Even in a season that he struggled, he still had 3 receptions in 5 of his last 7 games last season. I expect a few home run attempts and a couple of quick short strikes to him. Ruggs O2.5!
Baltimore Ravens/Las Vegas Raiders Over 50
Lamar Jackson is licking his chops knowing he is going against the 25th ranked defense a season ago. The Raiders also ranked 30th in the league in points against. Jon Gruden's crew could score as well a season ago and averaged 27 points a contest.

Lamar Jackson Over 1.5 TD passes
Got burned with this yesterday (Herbert fell a TD short), but I can’t help myself - I love this prop. With the Ravens running back injuries, Lamar is going to have to do more with his arm which isn’t a terrible thing as he has thrown 62 touchdown passes the past two seasons. Lamar will be in MVP form tonight and carry the Ravens.

2-Leg Parlay- Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert Over 1.5 TD Passes
My favorite player prop play is in full effect here with both year two QB’s getting off to a hot start. Burrow and Herbert both have the weapons to go over this quite comfortably. Bonus pick: 3 team teaser -120: Rams +2.5, 49ers +1.5, Packers +6.5.
Dalvin Cook Most Rushing Yards (Sunday Only)
FanDuel has once again put out some fun weekly specials. Take a look. Dalvin Cook last season had 115 rushing yards or more in 7 of 14 games. The Bengals were one of the worst against the run last season and gave up 5.1 yards per carry. Cook is going to have a big day and I love the +750!
New York Jets to Win
We don't need the points as the spread continues to spiral downward which represents no one having faith in Panthers QB Sam Darnold. Sam Darnold may have a new start, he may have a new team, but unfortunately for Sammy D the result will be as well. Rookie QB Z. Wilson will lead the Jets with a stunner in Charlotte.
