joe and baker

Las Vegas - Welcome to Heisman Thursday, with two of the last three winners stepping on the field. Baker Mayfield from 2017 and Joe Burrow last season. Neither guy was Heisman-like in week one, with the Baker hitting 21 of 39 for 189 yards and 1 INT, while Burreaux was 23 of 36 for 193 yards and 1 INT. Joe B. looked just like the LSU version in the final drive against the Chargers, completing 8 of 11 to set up a 31 yard chip shot to tie the game. Sadly, K Randy Bullock came up lame and wide to the right. OUCH!

If you're interested in last season's scores, the Browns (-6.5) beat the Bengals in Cleveland, 27-19, and went Over 43.5 points. In the finale, it was Cincy (-2.5) at home posting a 33-23 W, with the total going way Over 44.

It's only week two, but the Cleveland secondary is already kinda decimated. CBs Robert Jackson, Kevin Johnson and Greedy Williams all listed as questionable, while rookie safety Grant Delpit is gone for the season. Baltimore's sensational Lamar Jackson hit 20 of 25 last week against the Brownies, and while the 'Tiger King,' or 'Joe Exotic' ain't gonna get mentioned in the same sentence as Jackson, yet, his accuracy is a fact jack.

If you gimme 6 points with Burreaux, I'm gonna be picking up the phone, hitting my sportsbook app, and adding Cincy to my bet slip.

I'll add the Heat +2.5 over the Celtics to my bet slip as well, and of course, if you can buy the hook to +3, hit it.
