1* Free Pick on Erik Van Rooyen -115
All plays are made using sophisticated machine learning models.
The set-up: The question of whether or not Tom Brady is "washed up" will be answered after the first few weeks of the 2020/21 season and there's no question that TB faces a stiff test right out of the gate by traveling to division rival New Orleans in Week 1. Brady has plenty of weapons to utilize, but team chemistry, especially with what is predicted to be a shortened pre-season, is not something that can be achieved over night.
The pick: Drew Brees may have put a foot in his mouth back in early June, but the veteran QB quickly made amends with his teammates and the media and I think that the entire ordeal he went through will in fact just "add fuel to the fire." Time is running out for both Brees and Brady, but the Saints' pivots numbers remain solid, while TB's have dropped off significantly the last few years. Divisional contests are always the most important for a team and they almost always mean more to the home side. This is one of the most anticipated games of the season and I look for New Orleans to come prepared. I'm laying the points and expecting a rout.

On Wednesday a rare 7* headlines as our Non conference Soccer game of the Year, we also have a Perfect system MLB Play, the NHL Eastern Conference game of the Month and a 14-1 NBA Totals play.
Despite the Panthers having home field advantage, the Raiders are currently slight favorites. While that may have some leaning towards the home underdog, the Raiders are favored for a reason. Carolina has a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a new defensive coordinator and a new starting QB. Under normal circurmstances, that might not be such a bad thing. After all, everyone is surely hungry to get the new era started with a win. However, these circumstances aren't normal. Due to the pandemic, the team hasn't had a chance to get together and that is likely to make adjusting to all the new faces/schemes difficult. Consider Vegas.
Play - Chiefs-Texans UNDER
Edges - The 2020 season debuts with the rematch from last year’s Divisional Round matchup in which the Chiefs blew out the Texans, 51-31, after trailing by 24 points in the second quarter, only to score 41 unanswered points on seven consecutive drives. With defending Super Bowl champions just 1-6-1 UNDER on Thursdays the past five seasons, as well as 3-9-1 UNDER in home openers since 2007, we’ll take advantage of a very popular public line and go UNDER the total in this game. We recommend a 1* play on UNDER the total. Thank you and good luck as always.

Wednesday night West Qualifying round betting action and we get the Colorado Avalanche (43-20-8) vs Dallas Stars (37-25-8). Puck drops at 6:30pm ET from Rogers Place in Edmonton. The betting line favors the Avs -123 and the total is set at 5.5.
Likely in net for Colorado will be Phillip Grubauer. He ended the regular season 18-12-4 with a 2.63GAA. Ben Biship will likely get the start for Dallas. He is 21-16-4 with a 2.50GAA. Last games out the Avs grabbed a nice 2-1 win over the defending champion St. Louis Blues. The Stars lost last game out 5-3 to Las Vegas. The Golden Knights scored four unanswered goals in the third, and I'm sure that is still stinging this Stars team.
Lots to play for in this one with a Stars loss Wednesday, they can earn no better than the third seed in the West. Still I don't see it happening. The motivation may be there but the skill is not. They might match up well vs. the Avs, as evidenced by their results this year (the last time the teams played was Jan. 14.) but the Avs are just the better team at this point. They were playing great going into the Covid-break, and they've picked up where they left off.
Some betting trends to consider. The Stars have LOST 6 games in a row vs. teams with a winning record, and the Avs have won 16 of their last 22 games when they're the betting favorite.
Play on the Avs on Wednesday.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
