    Bears press conf going on now. AM670 the score playing it while they critique the answers. Hilarious.

    Trestman sounds like a zombie. So far, no one was fired. A few brutal questions, and he just spins it as if everything is fine in the locker room.

    Anyone else questioning Philly tonight?

    With Foles I would have definitely taken Philly + OVER.

    With Sanchez I like Carolina + under?

    Or is Sanchez really as game ready as they are claiming? Just like Stanton winning the Superbowl, L O FUCKING L

    I think Sanchez is good to go.. Kind of like last year when Foles replaced Vick when he got hurt and went on to tear shit up..

    Philly has had many games this year where they start slow.. I don't think they'll have that problem tonight.

    Chip Kelly is going to be ready to roll and the eagles are going to fuck them up imo

    I have no faith in Sanchez. I took Carolina & under 48.5.

    Also got Boston & Carolina in hockey as well as Indiana & San Antonio in the NBA.

    Not to be a Tuesday morning quarterback but I agree big with this. Sanchez may be better than Foles too. He ran this offense in the preseason awesomely , and looked sharp last week. He looked pretty good last night too.

    Big difference running this high octane offense than sitting in the pocket for the JEts waiting to get drilled where they have had like very few good skill players. I think a lot of QBS could crush in Kellys offense

    I can tell you right now Sanchez is better than Foles. He has the big game experience, and this time he actually has a system that favors a qb and actual weapons! Honestly I think Foles had an amazing run last year, and he's just not ho we thought he was. His throws are Peyton Manning duck like, except he's no Peyton Manning.

    I also find it fascinating how the game works. For instance. Celek and Matthews have had sub par-ish seasons. Matthews has one good game, and Celek, not really any. New QB means new targets. Celeks and Matthews led the team last night in targets. Crazy kinda if you think about it. It's like Carolina game planned to stop Maclin(and did) and covered Ertz while leaving Celek wide open allll night, and since Sanchez isn't Foles he was able to completely flip the switch on them.

    That being said I see Sanchez coming back down to earth next week. I still think he's better than Foles. I just think the surprise attack of what Mark Sanchez brings to the table is over with. They now have good video to watch of him running this offense.

    Looking at Lakers today...

    They are against Memphis, the best defensive team in the NBA. Too hard to predict over/under. You have the league's best defense versus the league's worst. O/U is 197 at the moment, up from 195.5. I have no opinion on this one. It really can go either way.

    Line is Memphis -9.5, down from -11. Guess people like the Lakers because they looked good on Sunday versus Charlotte.

    This is a tough one.

    The Lakers were good in the second half on Sunday, erasing a 9 point deficit in the 3rd (and taking the lead), and then solidifying a blowout by the end. (They were their usual crap selves in the first half, down 51-42.)

    But that was at home, and that was against a mediocre Charlotte team (considerably worse than Memphis), and it was after 4 days rest.

    Today they will be on the road against a very good team.

    Still, the -9.5 is tough because Memphis doesn't score much, and a defensive team is less likely to blow out the opposition. The Lakers also performed well against Charlotte (107 points) which is mainly a defensive team.

    At the same time, the Lakers are a far inferior team, will be on the road, and will just have traveled across the country.

    I think I might stay away from this one, but if I had to pick a side, I would go Memphis -9.5. I'll decide soon if I actually bet it. Not touching the O/U.

    Don't discount the excellence of Chip Kelly as coach.

    You look at the mutts that are the Patriots (middle linebackers on D/L) and you want to fade them.

    Brady goes down. They still won. The power of Belichick.

    I trust Chip Kelly knows how to adjust. Don't get too wound up about the QB

    Thats what I am saying. You could put Marty Carrico in there and they still might put up 20 a game just because of Kelly.

    The fact that we now have a post season experienced guy in there under the power of Chip Kells I feel like we have a real shot to make some noise.

    agreed Memphis doesn't score much, relies on their D, etc...but this is a pretty damn high total for a MEM game @ 197...think this is the highest total of the year for one of their games...so vegas doesn't think there will be a scoring issue in this one...loaded up some daily fantasy teams with lee/zeebo/gasol...

    Lakers game easily went over, but Lakers did cover, only losing by 5.

    Glad I didn't touch it.

    I thinking about taking the Blazers +3 tonight at Denver, Denver is 1-5

    Blazers just played long game yesterday and are presumably tired.. They've also lost twice on the road but to way better teams than Denver

    Blazers just beat Denver on Sunday 116-100 and I'm pretty sure they're going to win again tonight..

    Anybody have an opinion on this one??

    Weiiiiiird game tonight involving Houston and Minnesota.

    I don't know what to do with this one. Might just ignore it.

    They're playing in Mexico City.

    Houston has gone under in ALL 7 GAMES this season, and never allowed more than 98 points. Prior to their last game (a 98-87 defeat against Golden State), they had not allowed more than 93 points in any game. Houston has scored 102 points on average.

    Minnesota has scored and given up about 100 in their games so far, on average.

    Over/under opened up as low as 201 at some books. It has since rocketed (no pun intended) up to 206, after hitting as high as 206.5 -120.

    I assume the fear is that the teams will be showing off in front of the Mexican fans, and it will play more like an All Star Game than a meticulously-defended NBA game.

    So you have one team that has been averaging 196 in its games, another averaging 199, and yet the O/U is 206?!

    But I'm still afraid to bet under because of the Mexico City factor. What do you guys think?

    Lakers currently sitting at 209 and +10.5 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

    I don't want to touch the 10.5. Lakers are back to back on the road, but the Pelicans are a mediocre team, and to be honest the Lakers have looked much improved over the past 2 games.

    The 209 is interesting, though. My one fear is that the tired Lakers won't be able to play their usual fast style, or will shoot poorly. You could have a nightmarish situation where the Pelicans put up 120 and the Lakers still lose the over if they only get off 88.

    The fact that 209 points were scored against defensive-heavy Memphis last night is a good sign that the Lakers high-scoring ways are still alive and well. Honestly they went under in the Charlotte game because the Hornets couldn't score in the 3rd quarter (just 13 points for them).
