Behind Enemy Lines on Opening Day

Yo, This is Nicky and let me be the first to wish everyone a happy new year! I know we’ve been dabbling here and there when we saw value but now its time to put on the hard hat, grab the lunch pail, and going to work as it’s football time! In the season opener you’ve got all kinds of story lines from the revenge factor, to postergate, to Dumberville coming home, etc. The defending champs may come out flat or walk into a buzzsaw of a crowd thinking this is the 6th overtime period from last year and react like a victory brings the Patriots to Mile High for the AFC Championship game. In any case this one is really tough to call and I suppose if someone put a gun to my head and made me pick the number I would probably lay the seven points but there is a better way to play this one and it’s the total. At 49 this looks like it has a good shot of going over. That vaunted Ravens starting defense hasn’t been on the field together very much during the pre-season and the hurry up offense of Denver, along with the altitude, should make for some big opportunities for Peyton and I look for them to score a lot. Conversely, the Ravens should also be able to run on the Broncos I like this game to go over the bar. That’s the chowder on opening day, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
