Rockets worth a play vs. Warriors in popular NBA betting trend. May 3, - pm May 3, - pm. Unfortunately Championship weekend also signals the end of the DFS football season until late August. But before I do that, I wanted to go over some strategies I like to employ when playing only two game slates.
Ownership is easier to predict, and the focus should be more on getting the best players into your lineup opposed to finding players with low ownership. The key to playing two-game slates is trying to figure out what the game flow of each game is going to be. We usually use Vegas lines to give us an idea of how the experts think the game will play out, but for two games slates, we need to combine that with our opinions of how the game script is going to go. The best way to do that is by running through the game script scenarios:.
If the Pats score early, that opens up the passing defense to play Prevent Defense, which creates throwing lanes over the middle for Bortles. Brady — limited on Thursday hand — expected to play R. Burkhead — limited on Thursday knee — expected to play. For the second consecutive week, the Patriots have the best Vegas numbers of all the teams on the slate.
They are the largest favorites -7 , have the highest implied total 27 , and have the highest game total The difference from last week is that the Pats are not going up against the mediocre Titans defense again. The Jags are coming off of a week where they allowed the Steelers to put up 42 points and total yards pass, 83 rush.

That is only the second time the Jags defense has allowed more than 40 points this season 44 to 49ers and 42 to Steelers. While this defense is far from one that offense would like to face, they are far from unbeatable. A very detailed article by Warren Sharp of Sharp Football Analysis broke down the secret to beating the Jaguars pass defense and essentially blueprinted the Patriots game plan.
This is a must-read for anyone trying to figure out how the Patriots will attack this Jaguars defense. Check out the article here. Not every matchup was fantastic, and not all of the performances legendary. Would Walter Payton score his touchdown?

No Was Jim McMahon clinically insane? Sorta Were the Bears the greatest defense of all-time? But this is so much more than the mere dry-mouthed fatigue of a hackneyed storyline.
No, this is the NFL failing to address the uncalled pass interference penalty from two weeks ago — one that would have almost certainly resulted in the far-superior New Orleans Saints not the Rams being in Atlanta. This is the NFL bringing forth the lamest halftime show in modern memory, in part because Adam Levine of Maroon 5 felt empowered to ew remove his shirt, and in part because so many musicians made clear by their absence that they would no longer support the league's entertainment efforts.
This is also the league's hype machine coming home to roost. Back in the day, the Super Bowl lead-up meant two hours of pregame analysis. Nowadays, though, it's an endless barrage of questions, comments, podcasts, Tweets, shows, more shows, more shows, more shows. It's one prediction after another; one talking head after another after another. Who will win? What will the score be? Is Tom Brady near the end? Ultimately, what we're left with are two football teams playing a game.
