2/3 last week, really surprised by BCI dropping the ball there. It feels like they were a bit too quick to abandon the run when OMA got off to a hot start, but I can understand why they'd want to get the ball to WRs Wagner and Brown. Newcomer DT Pravato looked decent in his first start for the Big Green and could be worth the price.

On to week 3!

New Orleans at Iowa City (-1) - This isn't a game that should excite you, but from a betting perspective I think there's good value here.

The Voodoos are a young team built for the future. The week 1 stomp against SAO was nice, but I see them as a 5 win team tops. QB Hughes is likely to start and with 6 other rookies and 3 sophomores also getting the nod, the vets on IWC will get a sorely needed confidence booster.

Just place the bet and watch something else: IWC takes care of business at home 21-14.

Cleveland (-1) at Baltimore - The Bombers pulled out their first winning season since 2050 under GM FakeJasonGarrett but the surprise sabbatical might have reversed all the progress. The team looked sluggish against STL and better against SEA but both of those clubs aren't expected to finish in the top half of the table. RB Humphries should feature a bit more to help QB O'Neill but and give the stellar defense a rest but they need to keep the score close.

It's hard to tell how good the Sentries are from their two games against KCY and TUC, but QB Kelley's holdout really gums things up. QB Minton hasn't looked good and if not for the defense coming up with huge plays, CLE could easily be 0-2.

It's only two games but the Bombers are at least showing some improvement. S Leskun and DE Hitchcock are elite and I just don't see QB Minton getting much done. CLE's defenders are fantastic as well, but I can't expect them to score enough to make up for their offensive deficiencies. BAL squeaks this one out, 18-14.

Las Vegas at Death Valley (-3) - One look at the ticket count here and you can see a square dog brewing... LVS catching 80% of the bets but still only about 50% of the dollars means there's something going on here.

LVS put on a dominant shutout of DET last week but even then you could see their offensive line struggling: RB Gmerek was held to just 2ypc and QB McKnight was pressured more than he had been in a long while. OGs Blades and Kramer need to improve and quickly if the Rounders are to live up to the dynasty hype.

DVY also got a few softballs thrown their way to start 2061 but they look like the challengers they should've been if not for RB Donaldson's concussion in the postseason. GM Jander3456 worked some salary cap magic to keep their offense intact with QB Buckley, OG Dozier, and RB Donaldson all extending their stays. The Copperheads lost a few pieces on defense, but the new guys have performed well enough to fancy their chances at another winning season.

Both of these teams will be playing football in January but I like DVY in this matchup. LVS was able to slow RB Donaldson when they met last season, but I think they lack the size at linebacker with rookie LB Hargreaves starting at MLB. DTs McGee and Pierce have struggled with conditioning in seasons past and it doesn't seem like they've gotten much better at staying on the field so look for RB Donaldson to feast when lesser talent steps in. Death Valley improves to 3-0 on the season here: 27-21.
