Let’s see how we did:
Game Recommendation: Los Angeles Rams ML +115
Result: I won’t go too deep into my overall game take, but Jared Goff was horrible and Bill Belichick coached the diapers off of Sean McVay. We thought this would be an even scoring game and we were taking the team with favorable odds. It was tied going into the 4th, what can you do. LOSS.
Prop: Player to score the first touchdown: Josh Reynolds +1000 (Odds Shark)
Result: Well, nobody on the Rams scored a touchdown. So this long shot clearly did not hit. LOSS
Prop: Yards on 1st Rushing Attempt: Sony Michel o3.5 -115 (Bovada)
Result: On the first play of the game, Sony Michel took a hand off for 13 yards. WIN.
Prop: Brandin Cooks Receiving Yards u70.5 -115 (Odds Shark)
Result: I was correct in my analysis that Stephon Gilmore would shadow Cooks. What I didn’t see coming — what nobody saw coming — was how often the Patriots would play zone. New England played more man coverage than any team in the league this year, yet played 90% zone in the super bowl. That allowed Cooks to find openings, and he racked up 120 yards. It was the correct game plan for the Patriots, and I simply didn’t see it coming. That’s on me. LOSS.
Prop: Todd Gurley Yards on 1st Reception u6.5 -115 (Bovada)
Result: Todd Gurley had one target the entire game. He caught it and lost a yard. It’s worth noting that if Gurley doesn’t catch a ball, the under hits. WIN.
Prop: Total Rushing Yards by the Rams o127.5 +110 (Bovada)
Result: Not even fucking close. LOSS
Prop: How Long Will it Take Gladys Knight to Sign the National Anthem? Over 1:49 -145 (Odds Shark)
Result: Gladys “Ole Reliable” Knight sung beautifully for 2 minutes and 1 second. WIN
Prop: Will Gladys Knight Forget Or Omit a Word During the Anthem? No -500 (Odds Shark)
Result: Please. WIN.
Prop Results: +0.85 units
