No team enters this season with more hype than the Browns as they filled out their roster with high prized free agents to pair with the brash young QB Baker Mayfield and first-year coach Freddie Kitchens who shed his interim label. The biggest catch of the offseason was superstar WR Odell Beckham Jr. who came from the Giants along with LB Olivier Vernon. Suspended RB Kareem hunt also joined the squad and LB Jamie Collins was released back to the Patriots. The Titans had a relatively quiet offseason with the major headline being a change at offensive coordinator. Matt LeFleur is now the head coach of the Packers and his role was filled by Arthur Smith, a longtime assistant with the organization. Titans QB Marcus Mariota was marred by injuries all of last season but the same issues hamper this Titans team year in and year out as they lack any real weapons. Furthermore, with LT Taylor Lewan serving a suspension, their running game takes a hit, not to mention their pass protection which is vital for Mariota to stay upright. While the Browns may be a bit overhyped, we're of the opinion that they will make good in the first game of the season against an unimaginative opponent!

It just goes to show what contempt big players have for anything other than grand slams, because she made a miraculous recovery to play at the US open. The 37 year old has had a really easy route to the final, with players such has Svitolina doing nothing to stop her progress. However, she’s facing a tough one here, and we very much doubt that Bianca Andreescu will be such a push over. If you think back to last year, Serena marched into the final under a similar set of results. However, then she got her ass kicked by 20 year old Naomi Osaka, and she’s been beaten in four finals since returning from child birth! Andreescu gives the impression she’s got both nerve and can raise her game. Nevertheless, rather than be brazen, lets take her to get a set!
Texas hosts LSU tonight in a clash of top 10 teams and of the most anticipated games of the 2019 season. Texas is breaking in a handful of new starters on the defense and LSU has a revamped offense that impressed in its opener against Georgia Southern. LSU's new look offense showed well against the Panthers but we still have issues with QB Joe Burrow whose accuracy is still in question and the new up tempo system will ask him to make more deep throws. While the Longhorns' defense was shaky at best, their secondary is clearly their strength with both returning starters at safety. With a questionable Longhorns' front 7, it's likely we see the Tigers go back to a ground heavy attack to exploit this edge. Sam Ehlinger returns at QB for Texas with high expectations but his numbers last season were a bit of smoke and mirrors with poor efficiency and lack of explosive pass plays. Their rushing attack wasn't much better, ranking 98th in S&P+ ratings and dead last in explosiveness. There are some question marks on the offensive lines with three new starters that should further hamper the running game. Longhorns' coach Tom Herman typically does well in the underdog role because he looks to shorten the game slow the tempo down with a back to basics approach. We see enough of a talent disparity to avoid backing Herman despite Texas being near touchdown underdogs at home but we see no reason to avoid this high total!
The Les Miles era in Kansas got off to an auspicious start as they managed an unconvincing 24-17 victory over FCS school Indiana State. Nevertheless, it's worth mentioning that the Jayhawks weren't in any real danger of losing the game, despite the Sycamores rallying to take the lead at one point in the fourth quarter and there were some glimpses of talent shown as Kansas starts their rebuild after years of futility. Fortunately for the Jayhawks, their opponent today isn't of much higher calibre than the Sycamores. In fact, Coastal Carolina were playing in the Championship Subdivision themselves as late as 2017 and begin their 3rd years in FBS where they've managed just an 8-16 record. Much of the Chanticleers' struggles is on the defensive side of the ball where they ranked next to dead last in 2018 and they were especially horrific giving up the explosive play. The Jayhawks get back dynamic RB Pooka Williams and we don't really see any way Williams doesn't gash the Chanticleers at every opportunity! The Chanticleers return the bulk of their starters but we don't see enough overall improvement in talent level, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Covering a touchdown is well within reach!
One of the marquee matchups tonight features the defending national champions Clemson hosting the team that suffered the narrowest defeat against the Tigers last season in Texas A&M. These teams met in College Station in 2018 with the Tigers coming out ahead 28-26. The Aggies opened 2019 with an easy 41-7 win over Texas State. We should point out that the Bobcats aren't pushovers defensively speaking so QB Kellen Mond's strong effort shouldn't be overlooked and we were overall very impressed with Jimbo Fisher's team. The Tigers flexed their muscles in Week 1 against ACC rival Georgia Tech, winning by a 52-14 margin but QB Trevor Lawrence didn't display his normal level of performance through the air. It would be accurate to say Mond gave the Tigers' defense the most trouble last season and Mond's confidence should be high, especially given that Clemson's secondary is a clear step down from their championship team last year. The Aggies' OL was also one of the top lines at pass protection and limiting negative plays and returns 5 starters which should be more than up to the task against the best defensive line in the country. Winning at Death Valley is a tall order against a mediocre Clemson team so you get the picture against a championship calibre one. However, Fisher has proven to match up well against Dabo Swinney with a 4-5 record despite having inferior teams and we believe 17 points should be manageable!
The early season struggles for Purdue manifested itself again last week much to our displeasure as the Boilermakers not only gave up a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter but very nearly lost the game in overtime. However, we can at least take away positives from that game as QB Elijah Sindelar amassed over 400 passing yards and Jeff Brohm's offense was clicking from the outset. Poor game management and an untimely pick is what ultimately very nearly led to their downfall. The Commodores are still licking their wounds from their 30-6 beatdown at the hands of Georgia in Week 1 but they can at least take some solace in that they faced one of the very best teams in the country. QB Riley Neal was ineffective in his debut for the Commodores in trying to fill the shoes left by Kyle Shurmur. Nevertheless, Neal being a fifth year senior is more than experienced and has done his best work in Indiana where he grew up and played high school ball and won the starting job at Ball State as a freshman in 2015 before injuries derailed his career. Neal gets a much easier test against a Purdue team that hasn't shown the ability to stop competent passing teams. Vanderbilt has legitimate pass catching targets in WR Kalija Limpscomb and TE Jared Pinckney not to mention Ke'Shawn Vaughn in the backfield. We have very little worries about Purdue's offense showing up as Brohm has a proven track record and it certainly wasn't their offense at fault last week. In fact, Vanderbilt while known for their defense in recent years, took a major step back last year in that department and high turnover leads us to believe their struggles will increase. In particular, the Commodores lost their best defender in CB Joejuan Williams to the NFL which should prove to be a major liability against a pass heavy Boilermakers team. Vanderbilt will have to match Purdue score for score here so we can only see this going one way!
Both schools enter this matchup at 1-0 after taking care of their FCS opponents in Week 1. However, the performances wildly varied as Maryland had a record-breaking 79-0 thrashing of Howard in Mike Locksley's coaching debut while the Orange had a more subdued 24-0 victory over Liberty. Most glaring for the Orange last week was their poor quarterback play as Tommy DeVito looked very shaky going 17/35 for just 176 yards and two interceptions. Needless to say, Eric Dungey, the starting quarterback for Syracuse the last 4 seasons will be missed and DeVito is far from filling his shoes in our opinion. Maryland is a team on the rise and we believe injuries have played a major part in keeping them down the last several years. However, they finally look to have a healthy roster with a legitimate coach in Locksley at the helm. Locksley also scored a major coup in the offseason luring QB Josh Jackson away from Virginia Tech and it looks as if this Terrapins squad is poised to make good on their ascent. All things considered, we would actually make the hosts a clear field goal favourite here!
FREE PICK - We don't offer ATP has Premium. Daniil Medvedev did us a favour in the last round by beating Stan Wawrinka, and it's easy to understand why he's favourite for todays match against Grigor Dimitrov. Afterall, the Russian is currently ranked 73 places lower, and he's just 19/15 on the year!! However, the 28 year old Bulgarian is a former number three, and in the last round he beat no other than Roger Federer. We should also mention he's had an easier route to the final, and he's really liking these courts. For us these odds about Dimitrov are an insult, lets have a punt!

The Owls dropped their season opener to Army but coach Mike Bloomgren has to consider it a success as Rice was competitive throughout, losing 14-7 and forced the triple option team to throw for the winning touchdown. The Owls' preparation was evident as they stymied Army's vaunted rushing attack and showed promise in their own running game with senior Nahshon Ellerbe. Wake Forest defeated a solid Utah St team in their opener in a wild back and forth affair but their defense was especially poor, allowing 596 yards of total offense and appeared vulnerable to both the run and pass. In fact, if not for some opportune interceptions, it's very much likely the Demon Deacons would be staring at a 0-1 record heading into this game. The Demon Deacons have a dynamic offense led by talented dual threat quarterback Jamie Newman and they will undoubtedly look to push the tempo with their high flying attack. However, Bloomgren has proven to be a competent coach, effectively countering the Black Knights' triple option last week and the Stanford model he's established since his arrival here has been to directly counter the fast spread offenses that's prevalent in CUSA and very similar to what the Demon Deacons employ. Another well put together gameplan could be all that's needed against a Wake team that perhaps won't treat this game with the utmost urgency given the large spread and an important conference game against UNC next week. The Owls should also get an assist from the weather as it's expected to be extremely hot at gametime, conditions that they should be acclimated to and should also prevent the Demon Deacons from pushing the pace too much. Depth could be an issue as well for the visitors in the heat. Hosts to keep it within 20 points should be achievable.
PREMIUM WTA BET - You can have two months WTA picks for an incredible €200, or €150 per month) What it costs us to produce an highly profitable service is out of you reach, and you are getting all of these tips for a small fraction of the price ———— firstname.lastname@example.org Bianca Andreescu got past quarter final opponent Elise Mertens, but she again needed three sets. We have to take into consideration that the powerful Canadian is just 19 years old, and she’s risen through the ranks like a future star. However, one worry with the Canadian is she is still having a bit of a roller coaster, and has it gets nearer the end game focus will be essential. Belinda Bencic was a bit fortunate to win the first set against Vekic, but by the second she was in full control. The Swiss girl played the percentage game better than her opponent, and her return held up well. No doubt Andreescu will again show her variation, but she’s had a couple of tough three setters and looks vulnerable. At these odds we have to chance Bencic!
