PlayUSA Grant Lucas @GrantDLucas Number of QBs over 350 yards passing Of course Bryson can bomb. No doubt. But by Sunday, and especially if he's in contention, you would imagine Bryson would have reined in his flex off the tee just a tad. Combine that with a near given that three QBs will pop off for at least 350 yards this week, maybe even four or five, and I'll take the NFL over Bryson.
TheLines.com / NJ Betting Marco Cerino @CerinoRoyale Saints win/Tiger top-20 Tiger looks really good to start and he usually does well when he gets out the gate well. I like the Saints to keep the momentum going against a depleted Niners side.
Gambling.com Lou Monaco @loumonaco Bryson drives over 350 He has been just so consistent with this and he will either pull ahead or come from behind to get it done. It will be all because of his driving to get it there close. If anything like his drive on hole 9 to end his first round Thursday, watch out!
SportsMap Radio Matt Perrault @sportstalkmatt Bucs win and Rahm Top 10 The Bucs winning over the Panthers is my play of the weekend. Brady will bounce back and the Panthers defense is not good. John Rahm is one of the best players in the world and had a good 1st round. I expect him to play well on the weekend and be right near the top of the leaderboard.
VSiN Kelley VSiN @KelleyVSiN No hole in one or safety on Sunday Although the 16th hole at Augusta has seen plenty of hole-in-ones in recent years, I’ll say we don’t see it on Sunday this year. And safeties only occur in about 6% of NFL games, so I think this is a solid bet.
Sports Gambling Podcast Sean Green @seantgreen Arizona Cardinals more TDs than Tiger Woods birdies Come Sunday I think Tiger Woods back could be acting up and I don't think he gets more than three birdies. The Arizona Cardinals however have an amazing offense, with the total creeping north of 56, I have them getting five TDs at home against the Bills especially with the Bills CB Tre'Davious White dealing with an ankle injury.
