Well the holiday season is in full swing so maybe it’s time to get a little greedy and go for some exacta payouts in USFantasy.
As I mentioned in my last article, the Colts QB Andrew Luck mixed with Broncos QB Trevor Siemien hit for $1,217.40 for $2 EXACTA. Also some nice EXACTA payouts, Colts WR TY Hilton and Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas paid $530.40 for $2. What seemed like an easy one, Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell and Bengals RB Jeremy Hill cashed in for $193.60 for $2.
Before I get into the plays for this week, I wanted to let you know a few things added to the USFantasy menu this week. First off for the college football fans here is what they are offering:
- Citrus Bowl: Louisville vs. LSU margin of victory
- Cotton Bowl (Playoff Semifinal): Alabama vs. Washington margin of victory
- Fiesta Bowl (Playoff Semifinal): Clemson vs. Ohio State margin of victory
- College Football Championship Outcome: Betting options (Alabama defeats Ohio State; Alabama defeats Clemson; Ohio State defeats Alabama; Ohio State defeats Washington; Clemson defeats Alabama; Clemson defeats Washington; Washington defeats Ohio State; Washington defeats Clemson)
Also USFantasy has had the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship up for weeks between Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey. Now they have added two more fights from that card UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz vs. Cody Garbrandt, Heavyweight matchup Fabricio Werdum vs. Cain Velasquez. Two other betting options are what round the fight will end in the Nunes-Rousey and Cruz-Garbrandt fight.
All right with all that info, let’s get on with the EXACTA picks this week:
Prop No. 1 Eli Manning, QB, NYG; Phillip Rivers, QB, SD; Tyrod Taylor, QB, BUF (EXACTA BOX): Call it a hunch that the Giants offense breaks out this week against the Lions. When it comes to Rivers, he has been struggling as of late but I think he will throw a lot with RB Melvin Gordon on the shelf, Chargers win or loss either way it should equal fantasy points. Taylor you have to go with he’s playing the Browns in Buffalo.
Prop No. 2 Odell Beckham, WR, NYG; Mike Evans, WR, TB; Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF (EXACTA BOX): With the quarterbacks that I like you will see some correlation. Beckham I think dances all over the Detroit DB’s, while Watkins looked like he was back in form last week and he should have a big time week over Cleveland. Evans had an awful game last week, but this week is NBC Primetime in Dallas, that’s where star receivers tend to shine.
Prop No. 3 LeSean McCoy, RB, BUF; David Johnson, RB, ARZ; LeGarrette Blount, RB, NE (EXACTA BOX): Buffalo is playing Cleveland. One of the league’s best backs has a great matchup, as Johnson is at home against the Niners. Blount should do the goalline damage if the Patriots succeed at Denver.
Best of luck hopefully we can grab some extra cash to pay those credit cards!
