Week 6 Podcast Picks Review (2020)

Holy shit. That’s all I can say after seeing how many people listened to the Sports Bets Beers Podcast last week. This is a hobby for me, so to see a few hundred people tune in to hear what I am betting is humbling to say the least. Thanks to all of you. For those of you that didn’t, you can always do so this Saturday so no worries there. If I could make a suggestion, I would say to go ahead and subscribe here, that way it just pops up when I publish it every Saturday. Here is what we did last week, and as always, all lines quoted in the podcast are from Betonline unless otherwise noted on the show. Let’s roll.

6 Point Teasers (3-1-1)

If you are not sure what a teaser is, just click here and get yourself caught up. It’s easy and once you start doing these, you’ll be addicted like the rest of us.

Washington Football Team +9 – Win

It wasn’t fun to watch this one but a win is a win. I will always consider a +3 team for a tease before all others given the value +9 presents in matchups like this. Anytime you see a team like the Giants laying 9, you almost always have to bite the bullet and take the other side. Even if it means betting Washington. This was just a “blah” game that came down to the last possession. It was all we could have asked of the game.

Chicago Bears +7.5 – Win

This one played out exactly like we wanted with a slow grind it out type feel to it. I love Teddy, but he really hasn’t seen a pass defense like this one and he struggled throwing two picks and barely going over 200 yards passing. I am by no means out on Teddy and the Panthers, I like them, but not when they are favored against elite pass defenses. On top of the elite pass defense, Nick Foles seems serviceable in a way Mitch never was. It won’t be long before we see the Bears as favorites in spots like this.

Green Bay Packers +6 – Loss

Honestly, I was on cloud nine (if you know what I mean) when this one kicked and when the Packers went up 10-0, I saw Colin Cowherd tweet this and I knew it was over. In fact they didn’t score again and they reminded

Cleveland Browns/Pittsburgh Steelers Over 45 – Win

If you put this one in your two team teaser, it most likely got cancelled. I was wrong on the Browns being able to move the ball on the Steelers. I am not ready to crown the Steelers’ defense as the ’85 Bears or ’00 Ravens, but they are an elite unit. (They did lose Devin Bush in this one so that’s bad, but I am not real sure that will make or break them.)

Houston Texans/Tennessee Titans Over 47 – Win

I knew in the first quarter, second Titans’ possession that this one was going over 47. When the Titans’ scored their second touchdown on their third drive in the first quarter, it was just a matter of waiting. The Texans are not that bad and I love when they get behind because that is where Deshaun Watson is the most fun to watch. In hindsight, this over should have been pounded but I just missed it. I can’t believe I am saying this but Ryan Tannehill is actually good and Derrick Henry appears unstoppable. They should be a fun over bet for as long as the books hang low numbers on them.

Player Props (5-0)

Carson Wentz Over 1.5 TD Passes (+155) – Win

This one played out just right for us. The Ravens got up big just like they always seem to and then the Eagles were forced to throw to get back into the game. Honestly, it was not fun at all to watch the first half of that one but we knew it was for the greater good. I will keep firing away at +150 or higher 1.5 TD pass props when the situation calls for it. This was the one prop play where I felt like I knew what I was doing.

David Montgomery Over 56.5 rushing yards (-112) – Win

I won this one but I almost felt like giving the money back because we didn’t deserve it. (Just kidding, don’t ever give the money back. In any situation really.) The Panthers defensive line actually looked good even without Kawann Short. I went wrong thinking they would be weaker without him, and maybe they are, but Derek Brown played a lot more than he had in the previous two weeks and was an animal. The only reason we got home was because Montgomery had 30+ yards in the 4th quarter when the Bears were trying to put the game on ice. Still, a win is a win is a win.

Antonio Gibson Over 22.5 receiving yards (-112) – Win

Here’s another one I was wrong on but a different kind of wrong. Gibson almost had half of these yards on the first play of the game and ended the first quarter with 19 receiving yards so it wasn’t a question of if, but rather when. I was wrong because I thought maybe, just maybe the coaching staff would quit playing games and stop trotting out Peyton Barber and JD McKissic but they didn’t. In fact, McKissic played 53% of the snaps which is mind blowing but here we are. The only reason we got home was because Gibson is a beast.

Antonio Gibson Over 3.5 Receptions (+112) – Win

The line of thought was similar for both the yardage and catch total so I won’t go on and on. Gibson did not get his fourth catch until the beginning of the fourth quarter even though he had two in the first 15 minutes. We were almost struck by tragedy and we were on the “right” side of this bet. All is well that ends well but we could have used an easier cash for such a great play.

Irv Smith Jr. Over 2.5 Receptions (+150) – Win

I won’t lie, it sucked not seeing Irv even targeted until the last play of the first quarter but it was something to see. They brought him in motion, ran a little play fake to Alexander Mattison and then hit him in stride after he burned Keanu Neal. I knew at that point, if this team is chasing points, Irv was going to catch at least 3 passes. The Vikings continued to get roasted on defense and the rest was history. Irv caught 4 passes on the day which was one more than we needed him to catch. It was glorious.
