TOJ Week 3 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Don’t look now, but we’re off to a hell of a start here picking games and winning bets here in this space. Of course, that would normally mean I’m due for a huge letdown and a 2-14 week is on deck, but I think this year is different. This year I have my ace in the hole. This year I have Mike Florio of PFT on my side!. As you may remember, for the first two weeks of the season I unveiled my #FadeFlorio campaign, and the very worst of all the terrible NFL writers in the world has not let me down en route to a 9-23 start to the season against the spread. I’m sitting pretty at a respectable 18-14 including 8-2 in my best bets, but it’s getting to the point we should all just blindly fade Florio and collect our winnings. Let’s dive into week 3 and get started. Continue reading “TOJ Week 3 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”

TOJ Week 2 – NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Last week as you may remember, I unveiled my plan to pick one absolutely horrible NFL writer each week and post their picks here in this space up against my picks. For week 1, I went with the guy who may very well know the least about football out of them all, PFT honcho, Mike Florio.

I was going to switch it up and use another bozo like Pete Prisco or something for week 2, but after Florio went a whopping 5-11 against the spread last week, I’ve decided to ride him again this week. I made all of my picks that I felt most strongly about on my own, but when in doubt, I’m gonna #FadeFlorio. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s get started!

TOJ Week 1 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks

Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down the week 1 NFL Gambling betting lines and gives his picks.

Week 1 of the NFL season is great for many reasons. Not only do you get to cheer on your favorite team and live or die with them for four months, but you get to enjoy everything else that comes with it. You wear your jersey of your favorite player or your lucky t-shirt, you eat buffalo wings and drink a few (dozen) beers with your friends while you watch games, you play fantasy football and talk trash, and of course, you get to bet on games! And that’s what this space right here is going to be about every week leading up to the games: Gambling on games and picking winners (hopefully).

Making the Case for Leon McFadden Over Kyle Wilson

Connor Rogers breaks down new Jets’ cornerback Leon McFadden

The New York Jets added second year cornerback Leon McFadden to their 53 man roster on Sunday, releasing LeQuan Lewis to make room. McFadden was a Cleveland Browns third round pick out of San Diego State in 2013. After one season where he played in all 16 of their games (starting two), they let McFadden go. 

Although this seems ridiculously early (and concerning) to give up on a third round pick, Cleveland’s cornerback situation was a numbers game and McFadden did not perform up to par. Although his young career has been relatively underwhelming, it is quite clear why the Jets added him to their secondary. Let’s take a look… Continue reading “Making the Case for Leon McFadden Over Kyle Wilson”

Muhammad Wilkerson: The Engine to Rex Ryan’s Defense

Muhammad Wilkerson, like many players on the Jets defense, has the skill set to excel in many different roles. He is regarded as a 3-4 defensive end, but Rex Ryan lines up Wilkerson all over the defensive line. Let’s jump into the film room and take a look.

TOJ Jets Roster Preview – Will the Jets’ Offensive Line Be Better?

With training camp looming, Mike Nolan takes a look at the Jets Offensive Line by position to see if they might be better in 2014.

When it came to the offensive line, I decided to call in our resident big man, Mike Nolan, to finish our New York Jets roster preview. Take it away…

I decided to borrow an article format that I saw Terry Blount use about the Seahawks on ESPN.com. Since the Jets were consistently ranked in the bottom 10 of 2013 NFL Offensive Lines, I thought it would be a good format to see if we should expect them to improve at each position in 2014.

The Full Breakdown of Wide Receiver Quincy Enunwa

Connor Rogers breaks down Jets rookie wide out Quincy Enunwa.

The Jets selected their third wide receiver of the draft with the 209th selection – Nebraska’s single season touchdown reception leader, Quincy Enunwa.

Enunwa was a team captain for the Cornhuskers and a focal point of their passing game. While he is certainly a project at this point, he is a skillful player with a chance to crack the Jets roster if he can impress in training camp. Let’s dig in. Continue reading “The Full Breakdown of Wide Receiver Quincy Enunwa”
