Welcome to Take The Over Monday Morning Recap:
Week 3 in the NFL is typically where teams start to show their true colors. We find out who is for real and who was a great September story – this week was tough to pick but here we are.
Last week was electric on the show, it seemed as though we couldn’t miss – touting a record of 7 -2 and maybe the gambling god’s has us right where they wanted because this week was NOT that. We finished the week with a record of 6 – 6.
W – Carolina -7.5: The Panthers found a way to win this game but at what cost? Well, the cost was their best player – CMC who will miss several weeks with a hamstring injury. It’s never something you want to hear because hamstrings just need time to heal, there’s not much treatment you can do for them. The Texans are as advertised this year, especially with Davis Mills at the helm. He’s young, inexperienced and will play like a rookie. There will be flashes of greatness but more so, there will be growing pains. Fade the Texans until further notice.
L – Giants -3: You know what? I deserve this. I am taking this L squarely on the jaw because I should’ve known better than to put money on anything related to New York... The Giants, The Jets, The Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade... they’re all dead to me. The Giants stuck around in the game and at points, looked like they would win and cover but at last, they did exactly what the universe suggested they would... lose and hurt my FanDuel account. I will bet against the Giants from this point forward and I’ll pay some student loan payments with the winnings. The bright spot for the Giants is Daniel Jones has went over in rushing yards the last 3 weeks. If it stays under 30 per game... Please hammer it.
W – Arizona -7.5 & o 30.5: This game was more back and forth than I’d like it to be but Kyler Murray and the team put the slumping Urban Meyers away when they needed to. Jacksonville is a mess. It seems like some sure bets moving forward are Trevor Lawrence over interceptions per game and bet against the Jags.
L – Seattle -1.5: Man, I can’t figure this Seattle team out. I still believe in them for some reason but they don’t have the magic they seemed to have in previous seasons. I’m going to spectate them for a while before laying anymore money on them. The Vikings on the other hand are hotter than that girl that wouldn’t call you back. GEEEZZZ Kirk Cousins is seemingly earning that paycheck... but of course it could all get derailed if he has to go on the covid list because of his vaccination status. Do I like the Vikings? What is life?
L – Baltimore -7.5: This is another head scratcher team. It seems like they’re going to be this year’s version of the Pittsburgh Steelers – they play up in big games and then play down to weaker competition. Hard to bet on them but THANK YOU JUSTIN TUCKER FOR THAT LEGGGGG... That field goal made me hit the teaser parlay I picked this week, so I appreciate you.
L – New England -3: I believed that BB would scheme something against Jameis but it looked like the defense was too good for Mac Jones and the boys. Next week NE invites a familiar face back home and there’s no chance he doesn’t beat the brakes off the Patriots. I don’t know what the line is but Tampa Bay winning that game just feels right.
W – Green Bay ML: Who doubted Aaron Rodgers? Was it you? Was it me? I don’t remember but let’s not do that again. He’s good. This team is for real and if this is his farewell tour in GB he’s making the most of it these last two weeks.
W – Teaser Parlay: Carolina -1.5, Bills -2.5, Ravens -1.5, Chargers +12.5 +210. This helped my unit count on Sunday. Thank you all for doing your part, especially you Justin Tucker... Send me your address, you’re on my Christmas Card Mailing list.
W – HOT TAKE: FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE SHOW, A HOT TAKE HIT. If you’ve been betting them, congrats on the money. Packers ML Parlayed with Chargers ML +762... Let’s GO!
W - Dallas -3.5: The Cowboys have been a pleasant surprise this year with the return of Dak Prescott and the other offensive pieces finally putting it together. The team spent its first 6 draft picks on the defensive side of the ball (the most in NFL history) and it's paying off. This team seems to be for real as they handled the Eagles and Jalen Hurts pretty handily. Gotta like what they're cooking up there in Dallas, especially with their only loss being to the Super Bowl Champs, Tampa Bay... by 2 points.
