    Rivers was pretty good last year and can produce even better results this year, he's still elite in my opinion I have no issues trusting him this year especially with a good all around team behind him

    I am on the chargers band wagon (again) ...I have a AFC west title bet down already.

    I am bullish on Chicago improving this year as well, they lost so many defensive players to injury last year, Trubisky should take a step forward with a new co-ordinator the addition of Robinson & Gabriel & they have a top 5 RB. What has me scratching my head is Pinny dropped their Win total from 7 to 6.5. They have a tough December schedule Rams & Green Bay at home and then on the road to SF and Minny. All 4 of those teams will be still eyeing the PO's ( SF maybe ) where as I feel the bears will be out by then - They do have a some winable games Early - Sea (2) at home Arizona (3) OTR Tampa (4) at home if they can go 2-1 there...Then in OCT & NOV they get the Miami, Buff, Det NYG away maybe 2-2 and Jets Det at Home 2-0 but that is only 6 wins they definately need a big upset or a sweep of DET or the early season softies. the lone game outside their division I have not listed is NE the line is +5 - NE is an traditionally bad sport for themselves that week - Off KC revenge game from last seasons opener and season before that blow out and then the following week NE is vs Division rival BUFF. A non conf away game vs would could be a top 10 defense may catch the PATS napping

    I think they are more of an ATS play especially early on in the season while they are healthy - a team on the rise for sure

    adding Buffalo under 6.0 wins....was thinking about this for a while and after reading the calamitous report of their 3 QB's from training camp it just solidified things for me, they have 4-12 written all over them

    adding Arizona under 6 wins....their offensive line is a mess, they will have multiple new starters trying to protect a very mediocre QB in Bradford--who doesn't have a large number of weapons to throw to anyway....teams will probably load up against the run and keep the cards well under control and on passing downs Bradford will be pressured in to a high number of mistakes...their division is not easy and nor is their overall schedule...I respect their secondary but these days you can't hold out forever if you can't move the ball and score, they'll struggle big time.

    can't believe you can still get under 8.5 wins for Carolina, heck I even saw one book this week with 9.0 out there...their offensive line is going to be a mess, they'll at best go 2-4 in the division meaning they'll need to go 7-3 the rest of the way to beat you.

    If the Chargers don’t win the west this year I will beastonished….all reports from camp are that Mike Williams injury-free is like themhaving a new recruit and will be a force to be reckoned with, the Chargers WRgroup genuinely goes 4 deep and can hurt you in different ways, Rivers willnever get a better chance than this year…their D has a shot at being reallygood as well, anything less than 10 wins will be a big disappointment.

    adding Dallas under 8.5 wins....this I feel is now a no-brainer. I had big question marks about this team prior to them having all sorts of problems with injuries to the OL...now one of their main strengths can become a real weakness and I just don't see that group of receivers getting the job done.
    I expect the division to be tough even outside of Philly

    if I was forced to take a side I would lean Raiders under 8 yes, I see holes all over their team especially the defense if Mack is traded the only thing stopping me from declaring this bet would be the coach is smart but a 6-10 record wouldn't shock me

    If you haven't locked in Buffalo under 6 wins you should, their OL may be the worst unit of any offense/defense/special teams in the entire league! good luck if you're under centre, I bet they go through at least 3 QBs due to injury and poor play
