GTL Futures and Prop Plays
--NFL Win Totals --
-Over The Total-
While the Dolphins are facing a very difficult schedule, we expect a good year from them that will result in a playoff birth. We all know that they can run the ball and how effective the wildcat offense has been over the past few years, and if you add on the development of Chad Henne and the explosiveness of Brandon Marshall, we expect the Dolphins to surprise some teams and make noise all year long.Their style of play is difficult for many teams to match-up with, and look for them to be a huge factor in the AFC East.
The Play: Miami Over 8 Wins LOSS
New England Patriots
The 2010-2011 Patriots Squad is ready to play football at a high level. Here is what they proved in the preseason;
1. We Welker's Knee is healthy.
2. They have limited the negative affected of the absence of unsigned Lineman Logan Mankins. With continued focus on the passing game, his vacant role is devalued.
3. Tom Brady is ready for a big year. Lets not forget he threw for nearly 4,400 yards last year.
The Play: Patriots Over 9.5 Wins WIN
The Texans are a team ready to win. Mixing the games top receiver in the game with a 4,000 yard quarterback creates a team with a winning record. Mix that with a freak pass rusher and you have that making of a Wild Card team that could make a championship run. With Neil Rackers taking Kris Brown's spot, look for those pressure kicks to start flying through the uprights.
The Play: Texans Over 8.5 Wins LOSS
-Under The Total-
We all remember Denver getting off to the terrific 6-0 start last year, only to implose in the second half and miss the plyaoffs. We here at GTL expect the Bronco's downawrd slide to roll over into the 2010 season and in no way expect them to exceeed the win total of 7.5. Josh McDaniels has had this team in constant turnover and turmoil, and it will come back to haunt them. They are very old on the defensive sign of the football, and the costly injuries to Elvis Dumerviel and Knowshown Moreno will greatly impact their ability to win football games this season. The AFC West is vastly improved, and we expect the Broncos to be living in the cellar of the division by the end of the season.
The Play: Denver Under 7.5 Wins WIN
