YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES The NFL is back thank god as it has been 193 days since we last saw a competitive game of football well before Thursday night anyway before Sean O Connor jumps in to correct me. Surprisingly we have some new coaches in the competition this year and they were fully aware that the reigning 4 time NFL champion is involved again which is why its surprising……………people have too much money. Even more surprising was JP challeging Focus to a lot of prop bets which is just crazy…….he definetly has too much money: Below is the outline of our weekly/season long bets:
€50 weekly bet on points total for the week (double week points do not count)
€200 Season bet
€200 for a perfect week just like Focus last year!!!!!!!!! All matches must be won no pushes count
€200 for a duck egg paid as a penalty to the other coach
Aggregate points difference on weekly picks at a €1 a point. Example if i have the patriots at -7 and they win by 14 well i would be +7 for that selection. All selections count for the week. Best of Luck JP………. god, Allah, Budda and every other person knows you will need it. Focus finished with a win percentage last year of 77.4% anyway lets get to this weeks NFL selections as that is why you are all logging on to read.
PHENOMENAL FOCUS 2018 WEEK 1 NFL STAR SELECTIONS:
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0) at Cleveland Browns (0-0)
MY 5 Star selection for this week is the Browns at home to the Steelers. First of all, this spread is too BIG as Kizer the outstanding 4th quarter disaster QB is gone from the browns and they now have Tyrod Taylor who is an exponential improvement in talent and he wont turn the ball over as much as Kizer. I think that this year could be the first year probably this millenia that the Browns finish the season with a winning record ok maybe not winning but i think 8-8 is very possible. There division is not that strong this year and i see the Bengals finishing last.
If the Steelers are at 100-percent capacity, their offense will be difficult to contain, for sure. However, there are lingering concerns heading into Week 1. Bell is holding out and i sense dissention in the ranks. I have never thought that Mike Tomlin holds any decent control over the team and the above just proves that
Browns win 31-28
San Francisco 49ers (0-0) at Minnesota Vikings (0-0)
My 4 star selection is the 49ers away to the Vikings. How and why is this spread 6 points?????? I have this spread as scratch and this is one of my top plays of the week. I absolutely love the 49ers and the +6
The 49ers were very competitive last year, even without Garoppolo. They finished with 10 losses, yet half of them were by three points or fewer. Those games all could’ve gone the other way, so imagine that instead of 6-10, they finished 11-5.
These teams are close i think now i realise that it is week 1 but i have the 49ers winning there division and the vikings coming 3rd in there division finishing the season with a losing record or 8-8 at best. Am i the only one who doesnt see Cousins as an upgrade to Case Keenum who was phenomenal last year i mean i think i read it somewhere that Cousins is now the 2nd highest paid QB in the league which is just absurd. I see him transitioning into the Vikings very slowly and basically being a disaster in September and October. On top of all this there offensive line has been completly desimmated with retirement and injuries. Even writing this makes me want to change this to my 5 star selection. Simply put i see the niners winning on the flat and yes is now my 5 star selection.
Niners win 31-20
Chicago Bears (0-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-0)
My 3 star selection is the Bears away to the Packers. Again i see the bears as a potential last to first this season well not first but second to the Packers. 7.5 points is too much in week one especially since the best defender in football K Mack is gone to the bears. They were great on defense but couldnt move the chains last year well…………. fortunetly this side of the football has improved immensly with a strong offensive line, stout ground attack and some intriuging new weapons in the receiving corps. Yes the bears are building and i see them finishing 2nd in there division this year with making the playoffs a real possiblity.
My view on this match is very simple the packers have the better QB and ,,.. and ,,.. well thats it!!!!!! I think if you remove the QB’s from both teams then i think the bears are favoured I see this being a very close contest with a field goal decding the victor maybe even in overtime.
Packers win 20-17 in overtime
New York Jets (0-0) at Detroit Lions (0-0)
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) at New York Giants (0-0)
Last but by no means least my 1 star selection is the Giants at home vs the Jags. I just love betting against the Jags and the sloppy unsavouring Baaa Lock EEHHH. If the jags do not perform defensivley like they did last year they will have no chance. The only thing going for them is that they are in an incredibly poor division and should go 4 if not 5&6 in there division. I see them losing to the Texans away but thats it however in this matchup away to the Giants the Jags are up against the surprise of the year team in the Giants. Eli has sucked the last few years but why………… well its because they had no running game and only 1/2 great receivers. He was forced into horrible throwing situations as defenses knew what and were he was going with the football. Now they have improved on both sides of the ball with the best rookie running back coming straight out of college and the best receiver in the league in OBJ!!!!! Teams wont be able to double cove odellas teams will need 8 in the box to stop the run. Unfortunately when teams do this it will open the lane for OBJ to become the leader in the year in receiving yards and catches. I predict a lot of coaches actually going for the Jags this week which is laughable as its a classic overrated vs underrated with the Giants being the latter. The Jags are a fraud and will win there division by default
Giants win 27-24 getting points!!
FOCUS FINAL THOUGHTS FOR WEEK 1:
PHENOMENAL FOCUS PREDICTIONS FOR THE SEASON:
Winner of the NFL ATS CHAMPIONSHIP will be Focus for his 5th ring
2nd place well who cares, i have a feeling JP will be last and paying me out over €500 throughout the year. Other notables on week 1 is the chargers winning there game vs the chiefs and there division
My division winners will be different to most and are as follows:
Patriots, Ravens, Texans and Chargers
Giants, Packers Saints and 49ers. The Superbowl will be contested by the Patriots and the Saints
As always YOU ARE WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
