Thursday Night Football
Tonight we are going to go with a 2/2 More or Less with Marquise Brown and Myles Gaskin for a 3.6x return. Marquise Brown is averaging around 85 receiving yards a game this season, and although we’re projecting him to be below his average this week (75 yards), I feel comfortable that he’ll go over 65.5 receiving yards. The Dolphins are clearly underdogs in this game so it’s looking like it will be a negative game script for Gaskin, so I’m choosing under 44.5 rushing yards. - (BK)
College Football Saturday
Going with a late night game on Saturday as I’ll be playing More or Less (3x) Saturday for the Oregon Washington State game. Coming off a monster 211 rushing yard performance last week at Washington, Travis Dye should have another big night against a susceptible Washington State defense so I’ll be taking More than 92.5 rushing yards. For the other pick, Max Borghi’s usage against good run defenses doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence. He only got 12 carries for 67 rushing yards last week against a decent Arizona State run defense. Oregon’s rush defense is 30th in the country and I think the game script will cause Washington State to have to throw the ball more often. I’m picking Max Borghi Less than 64.5 rushing yards (BK)
The first MKF game for Week 10 I will be playing is More/Less for the two QB’s in the TB vs. WSH game. Washington is currently in the top eleven against the run for yards, but gives up the most passing yards in the NFL per game. The Buccaneers receiving core is banged up, but seeing TB12’s previous game examples of 379 - 432 - 411 - 375 passing yards I trust him to spread the ball out and capitalize on a poor passing defense. Taylor Heinicke was lightning in the Tampa Bay vs. Washington Wild Card game last season, and seeing him pass for over 260 yards against Green Bayand Denver the last two games I expect a decent yardage day. Ranging from 37-41 passing attempts the last four games, I expect the attempts to stay high trying to compete with the Buccaneers. Give me Tom Brady more than 300.5 passing yards and also Taylor Heinicke more than 244.5 passing yards.
My second MKF play with be a Rapid Fire selection for the Titans vs. Saints game. We have seen Tannehill throw for 347 - 298 - 270 - 265 in a few example games this year, and I expect him to have to push the ball down the field in this one with his committee of RB’s. Trevor Siemian on the other hand has only played in two games, with Taysom Hill breathing down his neck, who can take the job at any moment. Even with a 40.5 passing yards bonus to Trevor Siemian, I will take Ryan Tannehill over Trevor Siemian in passing yards. Last week, veteran Adrian Peterson led the Titans backfield with 10 carries, but not far off from Jeremy McNichols seven carries and D'Onta Foreman’s five. This looks to be a murky committee, in comparison to the Saints backfield which will feature Mark Ingram as the lead back with no Alvin Kamara this week. I am trusting Mark Ingram’s guaranteed touches over Adrian Peterson, so even with a 20.5 yard rushing bonus to Peterson, I am taking Mark Ingram over Adrian Peterson in rushing yards.
