The Ultimate Pro Bowl Breakdown

January 25, 2019

Matthew Freedman and Ian Hartitz break down the NFL Pro Bowl from both betting and DFS angles (but with a much heavier emphasis on DFS). The guys break down the Pro Bowl’s peculiar set of rules changes, including a mandate that at least one tight end must be on the field at all times, and that defenses must always play 4-3 base defense. They also break down positional trends, DFS Captain and stacking strategies, and advise taking the under if you’re one of the degenerates who is brave enough to bet the Pro Bowl.

The Ultimate Conference Championship Breakdown

January 18, 2019

Matthew Freedman and Chris Raybon break down both NFL Conference Championship matchups from both betting and DFS angles. Raybon believes the NFC Championship game will likely be decided by how Wade Phillips deals with Michael Thomas -- who absolutely torched Marcus Peters in their regular season matchup. The guys also debate Mark Ingram vs. CJ Anderson in DFS, and Freedman remarks on Anderson's Barry Bonds-like physical transformation this season. They go back-and-forth hypothesizing about the nearly-infinite number of ways Bill Belichick may game-plan for the Chiefs offense; but, they mutually agree that the Patriots aren't necessarily built to play from behind and must avoid a shootout at all costs.

Later, the guys discuss potential defense strategies for a Sunday that promises to be loaded with points, and we even get some speculation on the Super Bowl over/under.

The Ultimate Divisional Round Breakdown

January 11, 2019

Matthew Freedman and Chris Raybon break down every NFL Divisional Round playoff matchup from both betting and DFS angles. Taking the under in Kansas City has been nearly a lock in the Andy Reid era, but they guys debate whether or not it’s the right play this weekend against Indy. They also both throw their support behind Dallas to cover against LA, but Freedman – self-loathing Cowboys fan that he is – expresses anxiety over Aaron Donald against the injured Dallas O-Line. Raybon also advocates for the Chargers against the Patriots on the road, but Freedman stays square, defending Belichick’s playoff track record to the end.
