Winners don't Rose showed you how to make money general manager help support -- Works MSNBC. -- sports TV brings over 25 years of handicapping experience to the table. We're creating our. You're number one source -- Winners. The Chargers and Cardinals -- perfect two and how the Saints are going to. Twenty teams are one and one. Welcome to parity NFL style I went out DiMarco here along with Steve Goodman and welcome back to the countdown to kick -- program only nationally tell by show. That breaks down all your NFL action from point spread perspective every weekend and we are proud to be joining -- for the sixth consecutive year here on foxsports.com. But I have an announcement here -- top of the show this is going to be my very Lance show because I decided that I am now qualified. To become an and -- now -- race so I'm gonna spend the next couple days the that's that's a much out. I'm gonna try did look and memorize it leads 17%. Of the league's world book. And I'm gonna try to be a line judge next weekend because after having to watch the Baltimore Philly game last week. The Monday night game between Denver and Atlanta which I still think was being played on Wednesday night. I think I'm definitely qualified to be an official while I hate to see who's gonna be the person that comes this camp out the Marco come and replace you on that I have my hands fall. I'll tell you what you know I come into this business point five years I've been a professional sports handicap -- but before then I used to be a sports reporter so back in those. Days I even covered the standings the replacement gains in the NFL had a 100 years ago. So you know to talk about the integrity of the game being challenged with these officials. I don't really think that they made that much of -- difference in terms of the outcome of the games in terms of point spreads covers etc. But where I do think that these officials -- definitely affected the game and I finally heard Jon Gruden went down on the Monday night telecast is. That teams that like to run the hurry up offense been no huddle attacks Baltimore and the Philadelphia game Atlanta on Monday night. You know teams don't have that while they wanna when they're moving the ball they won't have their opponents back pedaling on their heels. But these officials again it's growing up everything slowing down the pace and I think that's where. It definitely affects our perspective the teams -- handicap -- gamblers. Because I think it affects the totals and I also -- the momentum of teams that you may be betting on because you're going with them because you like that. Quick strike attack. And it's that more than anything I don't think it's been such big mistakes that -- been making I think the way the game has slowed down three hours to finish -- game I -- gamblers the other games are barely making it in time you -- for -- with 1 o'clock money because he got -- taken so long to get over this the big problem. Absolutely now. Where I commented this as a professional -- -- -- with all these years really using the experience that I gained from covering things being on the field and want rooms except her and that is shake my -- -- handicap for Steve. Comes at it from a whole different perspective. This is a guy who was a sign of a book maker. And also book maker herself but the guy who where -- grade would you now know was -- offshore sports betting industry. So we about the union -- here in terms of taking a look at games. And we're gonna get our first game in Dallas Tampa Bay and just -- -- -- one thing that we want to talk about here is gambling philosophy in batting techniques and wanna talk about. The value. Or not depending on your perspective of buying -- point in certain situations because we saw a comment and -- Last week two occasions on Sunday the Giants camp the game. Also the Cincinnati Cleveland game now on the firm believer. That you always buying the hip point up or down depending on what -- -- favorite underdog when the number crosses 347. Sometimes and force sounds like a crazy number but we think about it guys with a two point conversion for all these years. You see summoning gained 2420. 1713. 14104. Is a crucial number. I think it's a huge disservice. And to yourself and it's in the cap for two your clientele. Not the by the hip point in certain situations. -- us face it. You know you're only talking about on the green and now on -- seven of course is well in Vegas and offshore. Where you're talking about an extra 20/20 five cents on the dollar it's a small investment from my perspective to make and -- interest your viewpoint. As a guy who was on the other side of the -- taking action for years. As a formidable maker -- I have a little bit of a difference of opinion but I really agree with you I would just Ed. Two little things one thing is for me it's always about -- -- make sure that happened up bank roll that you're up for this season and eat a beer money. And use it against them by buying the extra half a point. The second thing is both of our philosophy is the same this -- will -- that's around and pound or pick one game on the board and hit active and not try to back. And games on the board we're not. Actually junkies we actually wanna wait when you're batting every game on the board if you buys you extra point every game. You're gonna get completely killed in your odds that one game and one game only and sacrificing every -- an apt across the board to find that one game. What he -- much of an added hesitant and operable by the extra apple. Right and I personally think over the long run guys it always pays off more often than not when it actually comes in the place that just something I wanted to point out at the top. Dallas one of those teams if you bought they can't point last week at Seattle in -- manner they've lost down right down and nothing special team -- in the first quarter. But now -- back at home and listen if you said the Cowboys and open up the season the Giants and at Seattle -- come around come off one and one. You'd probably be happy if you're pokes -- Thinking that they beat the Giants and lost to Seattle you probably one and a forecast that bad but now they're in their home opener and true they have not done while coming up the straight up -- from a couple and one time but after the last ninth straight up losses and I think this is a great situation to jump on them. I am not impressed -- Tampa -- yes the Buccaneers and Greg Shannon's debut -- at Carolina at home and yes they almost. Upset. As the Giants place -- on the road but Eli Manning threw for a little over 5300. Yards on just joking but you know the deal in that contest anyone was got to be sitting here. Oh my god after being harassed by Seattle and played this Tampa Bay defense please bring them to me. For me I appetite again. Betting Tony Romo on batting out a lot like going to bay and giving up -- that we you have no idea what to expect just because reds came out does that mean the next beane is going to be black obviously we don't know what's gonna happen we do know one thing that will be a lot of scoring in this game. Tampa Bay scored a lot last week and that the Giants obviously on the flip side gave up a lot of points well I think this ain't happening here a -- over the total out -- idea. I can't see the over and under -- world opinion there I like the Cowboys. This is one of those particular games 77 -- a point line if you're looking for possible -- opportunity. I see the count was not gonna lose you've been taken them in the standard to eighteen -- here six points you've got to play with you taking Dallas minus 11 and a half they are not going to lose -- so that's a possibility for you out there. San Francisco on Minnesota 49ers as advertised they've come out guns blazing. You know you look at that first game at Green Bay don't look at the final score realize they were up 237 at Lambeau and dominating the Packers through three quarters they dominated Detroit at home. Minnesota. Well I have anything nice and I am happy honest with the I mean they're coming off a loss to the Colts in the final minute 2320 that they needed to rally from fourteen points and the put themselves in the position -- I -- late. Against Indianapolis but in Indianapolis team. So. A Vikings team that's 291 against the spread their last twelve at home I just don't see any support I don't want I don't quite understand why this numbers so cheap that what the niners. And last -- I was little scared of the nine and I liked them. But if you remember I went away from the game -- -- old written all as it turned out they clobbered the game. The total -- I'll do my best and the red boys put out reflective that says there but this time this time Adrian Peterson did he can't move against this game in front line I like San Francisco here and I apple point. Out the six and a -- and -- it. Eight guys before we get them next game in Detroit Tennessee just wandering mind you. That you can get my best bet today Steve's latest -- release from Manning credibly red hot service group at a bottom weren't guys I gotta tell you it. Last week they hit two more 59 plays they had Atlanta on. Monday night they had Baltimore plus the points Philadelphia. On Sunday. They -- we won Jets and we went over Buffalo so they have their fourth consecutive 59 like in four tries this season but more importantly fifteen time winner number when -- at a 32 of the past five years. And the Baltimore -- 42 when in nineteen the past five years making it and our better. Almost 101000 dollars in that stretch met when you can get that point you get my aspect today. All the plays a ball ten -- at pick nation dot com. For offering no strings attached by checking out are all access pass because. It's a 31 day trial and -- is something that we do that everyone else refuses to do because out. They don't want to know what behind the -- we on the hot and we do. That's -- gamble we give everything for free. And I hope that he'll come back and like. And guys again you Morgan 5600 dollars worth of action for free no strings attached and the reason I think mostly that we do it is that. We have them much confidence that we have the best collection handicap -- consistently making money on the long term. And we're putting our money where arm -- are by giving you all access. 43 today one pre trial might aspects these Baltimore crews leave his 59 winner for breach and a one and all access pass at pick nation dot com. I Detroit Tennessee on winds nearly beat Saint Louis and we won hammered at San Francisco we -- don't look at the final score wasn't that close. But I have nothing good save at Tennessee got 72 points the Titans have a lab and the first two games losing in England and home in San Diego on the road. And they already took on Philip Rivers and Tom Brady well guess what here comes Matthew Stafford and has had that break -- game until today. This is my Rodney Dangerfield special but Detroit minus three no respect whatsoever this the better he had most of the key position the better quarterback -- -- -- wide receiver they got a better defensive front line to me this Detroit all the way minus three points this and tight -- that failed to cover six straight games I don't care that the lines on the cover three of their last fourteen. They're covering this number again here today. I'll Washington's three and a half at home against Cincinnati. Interesting you know RG three the Redskins offense has been dynamic 68 points in two games the problem has been the defense is about 63 points in this first few games. And that's why they're one and one. And last week's loss to Saint Louis -- Sam Bradford threw for sixteen yards. A costly one for Washington because they lost to defense of starters in that particular contest. I find it interesting that Redskins team and it's that cover a story is home favorite including both were higher -- I'm doing Mike Shanahan whose tenure is favored here against a Cincinnati team. That got crossed defensively by Baltimore struggled defensively against Cleveland. But his one and one just like this and here I like the dog in this particular spot yeah RG three maybe. The most talented quarterback in the league right now from a personal. Talent perspective but. I -- out with you I think that in this game look I'm looking at Cincinnati lately and needle much more comfortable in the QB role this year they agree that there running better they're passing better neither of these teams can play defense on goal over the total once again out. Well I like Cincinnati and I agree wholeheartedly with you on the total sitting at 49 points. Keep my both these teams went over the first two games already this season already told you lab it made them defensively. Washington on over in seven of their last nine Cincinnati's on over to the tune of 126 and one. And its last nineteen. Final game of the first segment you're Jets. I played up to our lower expectations as we forecast -- weakening hammered at Pittsburgh at beating but a couple of team in week one. At Miami. I think it's that time to get back on the Jets and like Tony's on a new offense according to former Dolphins coach the but it revenge here and the offense big deal they won last week so what it was Oakland. Yeah for me it's the same exact analysis from week one week do Jets were built to be mediocre teams without a -- quarterbacks. Miami Dolphins not an elite. And the road team is covered for the last five in the series in a -- three number here again I think this is a must win situation for Rex is always here. And again I think that's spot on -- thing is also a little added. Motivation listen guys we've got a lot more games to break down here starting with the Saints Chiefs battle alone two teams that would figure.

You've got a 100000 arm mythical world match your salary cap you've got to put your team together. And -- on like your father's rotisserie leagues in fantasy leagues of years gone by ought to wait till the end of the season the lack note this contest is over. After the Monday in nineteen that's right -- -- days Tuesday guys top fifteen finish in the money and we're talking 300 hours on my money you think you can beat me in fantasy football. Given the shot that you've got nothing to lose its free entry draft thestreet.com. It. Who work in Kansas City this. Program on. But this is a team has some major problems mean Drew Brees percent completions last year 46 and fourteen interceptions this year 32 games. 4% completions four touchdown passes four interceptions. But the law of averages says Drew Brees is gonna turn -- the Saints -- hammer somebody. Law of averages also says that the Saints allowed 75 point -- rip -- -- the -- and come up with any better at it is. The law of averages says in any better offensively we have to wait. You know I had a theory going into week two I called the theory of relativity and that is that the only team that lost in week one at the what have relatively no chance of losing and we do true with the Packers true with the Steelers true with the Giants. -- -- How we talk about the Saints obviously they give up 35 point the Carolina -- -- all new for me out. This way and they don't win out there sees it is all work if you're ever gonna bet the Saints and really big would this is the week to do it ultimately the nine. I still have -- confidence in them but I will say this you got two teams in Kansas City Portland and each given up a combined 75 points in the first two games. This prices -- that the theory why why why it's not at six and it beyond me because it might stay at eight points -- -- play the over in this game I mean this is just. Begging for the over and the Saints at fourteen there last week one coming into this contest anyway. Up Buffalo Cleveland if I say there's one game is who -- game -- -- it would be this one. But since we are on sports Ohio we the Browns. I have a lot statement and actually played much better last week in Cincinnati on sports money. -- brand we've been having that -- the opening game -- against the doubt if faced -- defense that he can actually put something together. And he played like -- -- confident in Oklahoma State 2637. Art Trent Richardson the rookie out of Alabama big hundred yards rushing five point seven yards per carry. The bills got hammered and we won by the Jets and and they took it and if you were costly turnovers by Kansas City jump out early leader on and then world over. I can't say -- -- -- seventeen I still think the bills -- running good and they have a good coach Chan Gailey. Yeah excuse me for not being a big believer in Buffalo -- Ryan Fitzpatrick just inspire me to my hand in my pocket. Creepy but yet Ryan Fitzpatrick. -- -- I am in my wallet. Solid go -- out with Cleveland Browns I think -- get this win I mean I want anger. You know I mean you look at and it means ballclub at the three point wrote paper that's 12 of its seventeen game straight up on the road. But you're asking them suddenly because they beat Kansas City -- you know -- team that just you know some odd points in his first two weeks suddenly you're asking them in the late with the Cleveland. Actually complacency that human element in the first couple weeks and I think the grounds of the way to go on this contest when -- bet it now. Steve let's move on to Philadelphia Arizona I think that this is a spot -- You have to be very careful investing on the Eagles you look at the number four warning I think it's a trap. Eagles totally dominated Baltimore had to rally from two sports Michael Vick for the second straight week last line of relics. But you know hours on the team and Philadelphia last year drew the Eagles were pre injury riddled team. I'm Harrison John Skelton quarterback last year and upset them as a double digit dog. This Arizona team playing with competence in Europe one upset in Foxborough -- double digit dog and Patriots last week. I think people underestimate. How good these Cardinals on our defense. They have an outstanding secondary very strong special teams like. I think this is very very dangerous spot for the Eagles who after coming back last -- first two weeks after they went against the Ravens. Have to be you know theory of the. He and -- You know I think obviously Arizona goes into -- -- at the fourteen point underdog gets the win and everybody -- -- -- -- says just what you say that this week. Getting before against Philadelphia looks like a great spot for Arizona. I think the dangerous team. Actually the Eagles this that -- -- good ball yet they won their first two games that's a stark difference from way you're playing good enough to win when you look at. They beat a team like Baltimore up golf game -- against Baltimore that's been quiet it. It's a small piece of -- look at a bad or that they came back had a great second half they get that win I think he improve again I'm going to get the public. Unfortunately -- you do. I'm going with the Eagles on million go against it because -- -- growing up outside the Philadelphia area I will be watching this game as a fan. But I'm Smart enough not to put my money on Andy -- lately. Especially in this particular spot because Eagles just -- against spread their last twelve as a favorite remember that come close to covering in the Cleveland game is a big -- And we number one why our -- has covered nine of its last twelve again. I think that with Arizona on twelve and five runs against the spread as a home dog this is just a spot for me personally stay away. From this particular game Steve let's quickly talk about draft thestreet.com 300 hours of -- money at stake here guys. And it's a four contest we won in conjunction with draft thestreet.com just click on the ads here at the site you can and the contest. You have a mythical 100000 dollars out of camp and you've got to draft the team couple quarter last couple running backs at center put it altogether and you've got to 1 o'clock eastern time on Sunday. And the top fifteen if you finish in the money and it's -- hours on my money it's a free contest and her. Always say fantasy football all the gamblers turn the channel don't turn the channel we're not talking about your grandmothers stopped a fantasy football we're talking about weekly instant gratification. At that take it to the next level and make it even better -- had his contact where you can win 300 dollars of his money -- if you lose this is the key part it does. Lost you. Absolutely it was some guy last week. With the screening -- how bout got. -- won the contest won the grand prize. You know we spent 900 dollars and his -- thankful for Sam Bradford. Oh -- that was kind of an investment for sixteen yards and three touchdowns. RG three he spent 161000 dollars of his ankle kind of a good investment there and that's why the guy won the contest again. Orient for every single week if you like we play in the -- guys. I finished -- and we number one I think seven the third and we number two Steve of course has been very consistent ninety ninth place and we won. 104 in week number two he's trying to get even worse may be in the 120s this week but again you're playing against us. Among yourselves top fifteen finish in the money to grant thestreet.com. Hours of my money at stake in this contest great -- here -- in Denver. I Broncos as I pointed at and Lance Stan Mondays at camp and -- program we did. -- Broncos I was little concerned with how they came out very slow in week one at home against Pittsburgh. You saw how pathetic they were in week number two at Atlanta in the first half four turnovers. Eight in the three interceptions. Big comeback team at home for them to that. Especially Houston Texans coming here off to a two and start QB coach for many years and Denver's assistant coach when he felt the former head coach and the defense coordinator. Texans very from Peyton Manning seen him twice a year for all those years when you start for the Colts. Texans have a while there -- 1415 of their last twenty. I think this is a spot that Houston can get the job done and -- the I would say it upset the public perception is it would be an upset -- reality. The -- after one inning whatever. Yeah I agree -- Peyton Manning getting off the slow start in all of these games so far. And you gotta wonder if you just not comfortable hop and yet which would be totally understandable. This team the Denver Broncos in week or be a completely different team than they are in week three however betting that -- three would not be advisable here Houston the better team with the virtual pick -- eagle at the better team. And Austin -- and Foster and Ben -- I mean they are such a dynamic duo. In the backfield Foster last 110 yards against Jacksonville and take 74 yards combined for three touchdowns. 12 punch me to match job when he looks for a main man out there just so much more dangerous Andre Johnson opened up the past rulings but -- I just like Houston in this particular spot listen guys you can save twenty dollars up a single -- today at the site simply by using this coupon code week. Three WB and in the number three. No space between week and the number three and one -- your shopping or twenty dollars off the top of the single purchase and I remember guys. Make sure you want my daily video report every single day because -- in discount coupon codes once a week I get the five power play of the week promotion once we do that charity player of the week promotion why give -- the play in the top handicap for -- no strings attached at the mines. I ask you to make a contribution to charity organization and we. That needs some financial up because I believe there's some greater good that we can do gambling and -- positive karma. Sports I'm giving four picks in depth analysis there's nobody in this business that knows this stuff like I do trust me check at the free video report online home site. On my page. No purchase necessary to check it out. Hot the last game may be the best game on the board here today and also one of the most difficult Baltimore and New England. Who would've thought that you and 21 and one teams coming into this match up and you know the history you know how the Ravens showed it could and would get beaten. New England last year and AFC title game it Billy Cundiff who has -- -- -- silent I did not miss the potential -- game tying field goal with eleven seconds flat. If receiver slips my mind Evans I think was his name. If that. Potential touchdown pass in goes through his hands Joseph Flacco would have been playing in the Super Bowl -- -- -- Tom Brady. If my uncle had breast he'd be -- and it went the same respect look at the end of the day -- wouldn't -- is going on there -- something not right. Ballot check Wes Welker they're -- in Welker out of the -- that he's in a contract year out. One big Bill Belichick -- to do it eight players too much so at the end of the day with Welker that's the one with the new contract comes up they'll be paying him based on what he did in the pats. Instead of what he can do for the future is the big distraction for and wiggled humbled against them humble with -- Baltimore. Well but let me just point out playing devil's advocate I think the Patriots last week -- that. As sandwich game coming -- the easy road when Tennessee looking ahead -- this team and Arizona on flat but it. I think that you know Bill Belichick you look at this team. And you just don't go against them has an underdog and especially coming up the straight up losses well they've just been money in the banks over the years. Except Baltimore game this week this is not the -- Ravens defense of years gone by. They have an all they can put any type pass rush. On Michael Vick what they held on for dear life for the cover I -- had a great first half and the second half was all about holding on for dear life. Barely got the cover yeah that you gave up 485. Yards in nineteen listen guys I'm not anti what's not like it's my best bet on the entire weekend. So that's the deal you'll find out more here at the site. Remember the countdown to kick our program every single Sunday we break them all your games -- point spread perspective. You gap the money -- discount coupon -- week three to say twenty dollars you've got a chance went -- hours -- mine money playing with grant street not got a chance to get on the Baltimore crew gold for their fourth.
