BroBible’s Predictions For Thursday’s Game Could Make You Matthew Stafford Rich If You Bet Through MYBookie
So that was interesting.
NFL’s week one was a cornucopia of surprises–lowly Jacksonville sacked Houston quarterbacks 10 times en route to a 29-7 romp in Houston, Brady and crew got embarrassed by at home by the Chiefs on banner raising ceremony night, I was not deathly hungover on Monday morning. The NFL world is a fickle beast.

So lets get to the meat and potatoes. MYBookie is currently listing the below spread and point totals for Thursday’s game.
Houston Texans (+5) @ Cincinnati Bengals (Total 38) — Thursday, 8:25 P.M. EST
BENGALS: 20 TEXANS: 14
The Texans have a potential quarterback nightmare on their J.J. Watt injury hand. They plucked fourth-round pick Tom Savage off the bench after riding pine for three seasons, only for Savage to lose two fumbles, get sacked six times, and throw for 62 yards. All in the first half. Bill O’Brien then made the controversial call of thrusting rookie QB DeShaun Watson into action, completing a ‘meh’ stat line: 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards, one touchdown and one interception. O’Brien recently named the rookie Watson the starter on short week for an away game in hostile territory. That’s a tough situation for me to throw my week’s paycheck on.
And if you think the Texans’ defense will resuscitate a potentially stagnant offense, week one against the Jags didn’t instill much hope. For a D that ranked first in the NFL in yards allowed a year ago, they gave up 29 points and had zero takeaways on a quarterback in Blake Bortles whose thrown 51 in the past three years. Their run stop was dismal, too. They let rookie Leonard Fournette stomp all over them to the tune of 100 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut.
Oh yeah, and J.J. Watt’s finger fell off. Basically.
It cannot be denied that the Bengals suck. Coming off a six win season in 2016, Andy Dalton was a walking dumpster fire in week one. He completed just 16 of 31 passes and committed FIVE (four interceptions and a fumble) in a week one scoreless loss to the meddling Ravens. He was so bad that fans started chanting “Lets trade Dalton!” during one of the worst week one’s in franchise history.
It’s not all Dalton’s fault. The ineptitude of the Bengals offseason cannot be understated. They let their two most reliable starters on the o-line, Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler, walk out in free agency even though they had the cash to resign them.
This is a battle of two teams who have the ability to turn arguably the two worst performances of week one into something salvageable. I’m going to lean on the fact that the Texans are 1-5 against the spread in their last five away games and Andy Dalton is guilted into performing coherently after signing a 6-year, $96 million contract ion 2014.
But, just to make sure, lets consult our resident expert.
Ah, the beauty of sports. Good luck out there, bros!
