Football is back.
And it felt like the LONGEST offseason of all time…
Lucky for us, not only do we get to watch football, we get to gamble on it.
I have a few futures picks that are sure to win you some future loot. Ignore them at your own peril.
Oh yeah, and gamble responsibly.
Or don’t. I don’t really give a shit.
Without further ado, here are the official Loot Sports futures picks for the 2022-23 NFL season:
(All betting lines are from DraftKings Sportsbook)
All things Eagles
I love the Eagles against the rest of the NFC East this year. Not only do they have the most talented roster in the division but The New York Football Giants are in total rebuild mode, The Washington Commanders have Carson Wentz leading a below average roster, and the Cowboys are dealing with injuries to their offensive line and receiver group combined with the worst roster they’ve had in years.
I like PHI Eagles Division Finishing Position:
I REALLY like NFC East Exact Order:
1st PHI Eagles/2nd DAL Cowboys/3rd WAS Commanders/4th NY Giants (+500)
And I LOVE A.J. Brown Regular Season Receptions:
OVER 70.5 (+100)
I’ve got 2 choices for you that are the best bang for your buck:
Joe Burrow (+1200)
Only the 6th best odds to win MVP, this is a solid value bet for me. He’s coming off an an impressive Super Bowl appearance, essentially carrying a very average Bengals roster to arms length of a championship.
The whole country (including the sports writers that vote for the award) love Joe Burrow.
If Burrow can succeed at the very realistic goal of carrying a much improved Bengals roster to a division title, while putting up impressive numbers doing so, Joe’s gonna be a favorite to win this award. And your pockets will fatten in the meantime.
Russell Wilson (+1400)
Two words: Let’s Ride.
This one isn’t complicated. The Broncos were bad last year because they didn’t have a quarterback. However, they did have one of the more talented rosters in the NFL. That hasn’t changed, and now they have Russell Wilson as their QB. If the Broncos make the playoffs this year, Ciara’s husband will be the reason why.
Broncos homerism aside, this is a great value bet for someone whose fully expected to singlehandedly change the fortunes of the franchise.
*Bonus Homer Picks*
Courtland Sutton Regular Season Receptions:
OVER 62.5 (-120)
Barring injury, this is an EASY over pick for the reciever who’s been Russel Wilson’s #1 target all throughout training camp and OTA’s.
Javonte Williams Regular Season Rushing Yards:
OVER 945.5 (-105)
If Javonte doesn’t rush for more than 945.5 yards during this season, both my fantasy teams are completely fucked. So are the Broncos. For this reason, I’m hammering the over.
Don’t get cute.
Bet with Loot.
