two fro the money

Las Vegas - Kinda tough to wrap my head around Jacksonville QB Trevor Lawrence. He looked PATHETIC in the 1st half last week against the Chargers, throwing FOUR INTs. Then he was superman in the 2nd half, with THREE TD passes. These teams met back in November, IN Kansas City, and the Chiefs posted a 27-17 victory. Lawrence was 29 of 40 for 259 with 2 TDs and no INTs. All-World Patrick Mahomes was 26 of 35 for 331 yards with 4 TDs and 1 INT. Not thrilled about laying 9 or 9.5 points, but you know how good Andy Reid is off a bye week. How good Eck? How about 27-4 overall and 3-0 with Patrick in divisional games. Gonna tickle Kaycee and then go OVER 23.5 on Mahomes total rushing yards.

In the late game, not thinking about an outright upset, but gonna roll with the Giants +7.5 over the Eagles. We know what the NYG did last week but we DON'T know how strong Jalen Hurts' shoulder is. Of course, Philly tells us he is close to 100%, but we're not on the same page. These two NFC East rivals played twice, with the Igles crushing the Giants in New York, 48-22, then squeezing out a 22-16 win in Philadelphia in game that meant nothing. The Giants didn't even play #1 QB Daniel Jones and stud RB Saquon Barkley was a spectator. The most interesting stat from that game was Hurts rushing for only 13 yards. Maybe he was worried about the sprained right shoulder because this is a guy that averaged right around 50 yards per game on the ground during the season. Hmmmmmmmm. Then we looked at New York's STUNNING work against the spread, covering FIVE in a row and 13 of 17 overall. MONEY BABY! The Green Birds were NOT so green at all, when it comes to the wallet. They come in on an 0-4 spread run and have covered just three of the last 10. So we grab the dog, and also grab UNDER 43.5 rushing yards for NY QB Daniel Jones.
