Enjoy some Best Bets as a side dish for the 7 Fishes. Let's have a day.



Detroit Lions(-3.0) @ Minnesota Vikings

DK -110

FD -104


This bet is a refusal to overthink it. Detroit? Good. Nick Mullens bad?


In all seriousness we are seeing what's been a phenomenal Vikings defense get worn out by having to be on the field for so many snaps. The last thing they need is to face a team that makes you defend a with a light box while also maintaining a dominant run game. It has Lions division clincher written all over it.



Dallas Cowboys @ Miami Dolphins(-2.0)

DK -2.0 -110

FD -1.5 -105


The Cowboys are without Jonathan Hankins and he is a gap-eating run stuffer extraordinaire. When he is on the field he hides the fact that the defense is lacking in linebackers that can get downhill. Miami can attack a weakness like that ruthlessly. I do think that the Cowboys can still be disruptive against a poor Miami offensive line, but Tua hides that line's poor play to an astonishing level. Miami has real potential to just matriculate the ball down the field and set up Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle bombs that dishearten a team that has issues coming back on opponents.


I also want o shout out Miami's defense, they're 6th in Weighted DVOA and have really rounded into an excellent unit, allowing the 3rd lowest EPA per play in the NFL.


Also Dallas is on the road and they kinda stink on the road.



Arizona Cardinals @ Chicago Bears OVER 43.5/43.0

DK 43.5 -110

FD 43.0 -110


This is just a fun bet. Kyler is fun. Fields is fun. I think we can see at least 24-20 from these teams.



New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos(-7.5)

DK -105

FD +100


The Patriots are without Jabril Peppers, Hunter Henry, Connor McDermott, Rjhamondre Stevenson and Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster. Christian Barmore, Ja'Whaun Bentlry, Trent Brown, Jonathan Jones, Matthew Slater, Anfernee Jennings, and Jahlani Tavai were all limited in practice and are playing through something.


Bailey Zappe, old man Zeke, and 5'8 Demario Douglas are not going to be enough against a defense that turned itself around and has been feasting on bad QB play. I think Denver bounces back nicely and establishes itself as a week 18 loser leaves town type of game.
