First off the Indianapolis Colts are terrible.
The great thing is it doesn’t matter if the Colts are terrible in real life because they can still be profitable in USFantasy sports.
This week T.Y. Hilton stands out for me as the top choice in Prop No. 2. I expect a solid passing performance from the Colts and the Titans should be able to put points on the board keeping Indy QB Andrew Luck throwing all game long. On Friday, TY Hilton was set at 28-1, I seriously doubt you’ll end up with that price based on the pools, but I don’t think 12 to 15-1 aren’t out of the realm of reason.
Keeping the Hilton train going, I also think linking him to the DAILY DOUBLE in Prop No. 1 is a good idea. I would use Quarterbacks: Andy Dalton, CIN; Derek Carr, OAK; Kirk Cousins, WAS and tie them to Hilton in Prop No. 2. Cost would be $3 for everyone $1 you want to wager. For example a $10 Double would cost you $30, essentially its three bets.
Starting this Tuesday, USFantasy starts offering NBA and NHL fantasy to its menu. It will be available in the 40 sportsbooks already offering USFantasy NFL. I will discuss my thoughts for those sports this week in the October 25th issue of GamingToday.
Prop No. 5 – WIN BET – LeGarrette Blount, RB, NE (19-1): Sooner or later, Brady will cool off in the touchdown department and Blount will get those goal line carries at 19-1 take a shot.
Prop No. 3 – EXACTA BOX – Jay Ajayi, RB, MIA (8/5) and Spencer Ware (85-1): Both players odds will surely look different by kickoff but keep these thoughts in mind. Ajayi is coming off the best performance of his young career and will look to keep Arian Foster on the sideline. Ware has Jamaal Charles breathing down his neck, but Charles suddenly has swelling in his knee. Look for a big game for Ward in order to keep Chiefs coaches on his side.
