Superbowl LVI – Request-A-Bets

By Thomas (@bettingGSW)

Super Bowl Request-A-Bets are all about picking the outcome and game script you think is most likely and then going from there. You also have to avoid conflicting outcomes, for example if Burrow throws anything like 250+ yards and a couple of TD he will win the MVP if the Bengals win. So there’s no point betting a RAB where you need Burrow yards and passing TDs and also Mixon to win the MVP. 

On the theme of MVP I think the best way to attack the Bengals winning the SuperBowl is behind Burrow MVP bets.

Unless Chase goes for 100+ yards and 2 TDs or Mixon breaks a couple of long TDs I can’t see how Burrow doesn’t win it, especially as the Bengals are likely going to have to play from behind given how negative they seem to be to start games.

Rams HT/Bengals FT. Chase & Kupp 1+ Anytime TDs, J.Burrow Superbowl MVP @ 40/1

RequestABet Specials 33/1 to 66/1 – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

Bengals Win, Joe Burrow MVP, Gatorade colour to Clear, National Anthem 1 Mins 36 Secs or more, Kupp Longest Reception 29+ Yards @ 50/1

RequestABet Specials 33/1 to 66/1 – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

Those two are a couple of fun ways to get behind the Bengals and Burrow and gives you interest from the anthem to the Gatorade shower.

RequestABet Specials 80/1 and above – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

M.Stafford & J.Burrow 250+ Pass Yds Each, J.Mixon & C.Akers 75+ Rush Yds Each, OBJ, C.Kupp, T.Higgins & J.Chase 75+ Rec Yds Each, OBJ, C.Kupp & J.Mixon 1+TD Each @ 300/1

A random one that just seems too big for me. This RAB is essentially the 41-41 incredible offensive output game bet, for 300/1 it’s worth a token few quid. 

Rams to miss 1+ PAT @ 7/1

RequestABet Specials 11/2 to 10/1 – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

This is the “Matt Gay is more injured than they’re letting on and playing in the SuperBowl as a kicked is a heck load of pressure” bet. 7/1… not too bad.

Rams -3, C.Kupp 1+ TD & 80+ Rec Yds, M.Stafford 300+ Pass Yds & 3+ Pass TDs, 4+ Match Sacks @ 12.00
RequestABet Specials 11/1 to 28/1 – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

This feels like one of the better ways to get behind the Rams, and I think I’d rather be siding with them than the Bengals. Kupp is borderline unstoppable and as bookmakers you probably can’t make his props high enough, even more so given the high pressure environment meaning Stafford will surely look to Kupp first on nearly every drop back. I also want to get behind there being sacks in the match, Donald and Von Miller against that Cincinnati offensive line is well documented.

J.Burrow 12+ Rush Yds, J.Mixon 63+ Rush Yds, OBJ 65+ Rec Yds, Bengals Over 10.5 2nd Half Pts, Both Teams over 21.5 Match Pts, Rams 3+ Sacks @ 21.00
RequestABet Specials 11/1 to 28/1 – Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams

This is a bet that fits a lot of the game scripts I expect to happen. Burrow – likely going to have to scramble a lot to avoid the pass rush. Mixon – well the Bengals love to rush the ball. OBJ – the clear 2nd option now after Kupp and 65+ yards might only require 4 receptions. The Bengals have been a 2nd half team all playoffs and season for the Ov10.5 2nd half points. I’d prefer if this was Ov20.5 points each rather than 21.5, but could I see a 27-24 final score.. absolutely. And the Rams 3+ sacks writes itself. Worse 20/1 bets out there for sure.

As I said earlier, fit the bet to the game script and ensure you don’t have conflicting angles in the bet, e.g. Rams to get sacks and the Bengals to win. Other than that there’s a whole host of different bets out there, so pick wisely and good luck.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 13

A good week last week with Rodgers easily getting the one passing TD in each half to land the shorter priced bet and in the Broncos Chargers game both Herbert and Williams covered their passing and rushing lines to give us a nice winner. Brady had a strange off game and never looked like throwing for 300 yards, although Fournette’s monster game on the ground certainly didn’t help.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Cincinnati Bengals – #WhatOddsPaddy – Up to 9/2

Justin Herbert to have 1+ passing TDs in each half @ 11/10

Joe Burrow to have 1+ passing TDs in each half @ 11/8

I would advise a split stake on these two bets, with small profit if only one wins. This should be a really exciting game and I’m thinking the over on the 49.5 total isn’t a bad play either. The worry could be Mixon running the TDs in, and you could blame the Bengals for feeding him given he looks perhaps the best running back in the league currently, but I still think there will be enough scoring chances in this game for the passing TDs too.


#YourOdds – Combined Player Specials – Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons (William Hill)

Matt Ryan Over 251 Passing Yards & Leonard Fournette Over 62 Rushing Yards @ 12/5

I’m looking to take advantage of the game script here with the Falcons surely playing from behind. These are quite low lines too and this is a bet I could see hitting fairly comfortably.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – NFL Week 13 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

Jonathan Taylor, Joe Mixon & Lamar Jackson 75+ Rushing Yards Each @ 9/4

Final one of the week, it looks a tricky card this time around so I won’t force bets. I expect Mixon and Taylor to hit 75 quite easily, Lamar has gone over 74 yards 4 times this season but come close on a a fair few other occasions. At very least this is a neutral value bet for some added interest.

Best of luck this week

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 12

By Thomas @BettingGSW

One from three last week with Chubb getting his 100+ rushing yards and the TD to give us a winner; the less said about the Cowboys @ Chiefs game the better, one of the stranger games of football this season. Having said that, I would take those bets tomorrow if given the chance.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Indianapolis Colts – #WhatOddsPaddy – Up to 9/2

Tom Brady to have 300+ passing yards & 3+ passing TDs 5/2

We start off in the dome in Indy with Tom Brady. That really sums it all up, Brady in a dome means you just have to go overs with him. I think 5/2 is a great price for him here in a game where you would think an improving Colts offence will be able to keep up. I’d have this closer to a 2/1 shot personally, and in Brady’s last visit to a dome in New Orleans he put up 375 yard and 4 TDs.


Los Angeles Rams @ Green Bay Packers – #WhatOddsPaddy – Up to 9/2

Aaron Rodgers to have 1+ passing TDs in each half 13/8

Likely the game of the week at Lambeau and it should be a cracker. I’ll keep this explanation short and simple, Rodgers loves throwing for TDs when he gets to the endzone and with the question marks over Aaron Jones’ fitness that will surely only make Rodgers more eager to throw once they get down near the goal line. I’d have this closer to an evens shot and think 13/8 represents great value.


#YourOdds – Combined Player Specials – Los Angeles Chargers @ Denver Broncos

Justin Herbert Over 272 Passing Yards & Javonte Williams Over 46 Rushing Yards 12/5

One from William Hill and it’s another bet I love because of the price. Herbert and the Chargers got back on track last week and I back him to have another good game here in Denver. Williams hasn’t really caught fire yet this season and I think we’re all waiting for him to fully show the potential he has. Having said that 46 yards is a low line and the Chargers have one of the poorer rush defences this season. I think 12/5 represents a smidge of value.


RequestABet Specials 80/1 and above – NFL Week 12 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

J.Mixon, D.Cook, N.Harris & J.Taylor 100+ Rushing Yards Each @ 125/1

9.05pm & 9.25pm Match RequestABets – NFL Week 12 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

Both Teams to Score 2+ TDs & 2+ FGs in Each of the 9.05pm & 9.25pm Games @ 125/1

A couple of fun punts on Skybet to finish off with… 125/1 for that top one seems very generous indeed.

Finally I wouldn’t put anyone off a few speculative punts on the Buccs @ Colts game, could turn into bit of a shootout that one. Best of luck.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 11

By Thomas @BettingGSW

I’m back after a few of weeks off and hopefully to see more success in the second half of the season than was had in the first few weeks. One issue with Request-A-Bets is the margin that bookmakers apply to them, making it hard to find consistent value. I felt in the first few weeks I was pushing too hard to put out bets for the sake of it. As a result, expect fewer selections but hopefully with more success.


Price Boosts – Kansas City Chiefs v Dallas Cowboys (Skybet)

P.Mahomes & D.Prescott 300+ Pass Yards Each & 2+ Pass TDs Each (WAS 5/2) @ 7/2

With an O/U of 55.0 it’s fair to say everyone expects points in this match, and with the Chiefs (and Mahomes) finally finding some form in the passing game I’m going to attack this probably high scoring game with some QB plays. The 5/2 is a price I wouldn’t be touching at but at 7/2 you’re getting some nice value I think. Dak has thrown for 2+ TDs in all but one match this season, Mahomes in all all but 3 but given his performance last week I’m not too worried.

I also like this offering at Paddy Power & BFSB:

Patrick Mahomes & Dak Prescott each to have 1+ passing TDs in each half WAS: 11/4 NOW: 3/1

This takes away the need for them to get yards and focussing just on the scoring part, 3/1 seems a very generous price.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Cleveland Browns v Detroit Lions (Skybet)

Nick Chubb 100+ Rushing Yards & to Score a TD @ 15/8

The Lions have given up the 5th most rushing yards and you would have to expect the Browns to get an early and big lead here. The worry would be if Chubb is pulled early if the lead is blowout territory, so a play on Felton ATD at 17/2 (B365) and Johnson at 12/5 (B365) are nice insurance play.


Enhanced Odds – 9:05pm & 9:25pm Redzone Games – NFL Sunday Week 11 Enhanced Odds & #YourOdds (William Hill)

Over 20 Touchdowns Combined Across The Three 9:05pm & 9:25pm Matches – Was 5/2 NOW 3/1

Final offering is, at William Hill, again part of an attack on the Chiefs @ Cowboys game that should be electric. This bet covers 3 games – Chiefs @ Cowboys, Bengals @ Raiders & Cardinals @ Seahawks. The worry is that Cardinals @ Seahawks could be a drab 10-7 kind of game, given how bad the Seahawks looked last week and likewise the Cardinals. But in Seattle I expect Wilson to play better, and Colt McCoy well lets hope he throws for a couple. The Bengals @ Raiders game makes this interesting. Both have the ability to make big plays and score quickly, especially Cincinnati. Only having 3 matches leaves little room for error but the same bet is 7/4 on Paddy Power so at 3/1 this is mostly a price play

I wouldn’t be adverse to some crazy RABs in the aforementioned Chiefs @ Cowboys game, as it really does have 80+ point potential. I can’t see anything in particular priced up but going over on totals, Mahomes passing, Prescott passing, Lamb & Hills receiving yards would give you a nice correlated bet.

Best of luck this week.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 5

By Tom @BettingGSW

Green Bay Packers @ Cincinnati Bengals – #WhatOddsPaddy – Featured

Aaron Rodgers & Joe Burrow to combine for 550+ passing yards & to combine 5+ passing TDs

Green Bay Packers @ Cincinnati Bengals – #WhatOddsPaddy – Up to 9/2

Aaron Rodgers to have 1+ passing TDs in each half @ 11/10

Joe Burrow to have 1+ passing TDs in each half @ 5/4

Three bets from the same game here as the Packers head to Cincinnati to face the Bengals. Both teams average over 2.0 passing TDs each game so by playing each QB to have one in each half with extract a little bit of a better price but with over 50 points expected and a close game likely both teams will have to be on it from the start so both Rodgers & Burrows will likely sling it around from the get-go.


Chicago Bears @ Las Vegas Raiders – #WhatOddsPaddy – 5/1 to 19/1

Derek Carr to have 300+ passing yards & 3+ passing TDs @ 5/1

I’m very high on the Raiders this year, and I’m especially high on Derek Carr and the offence. They’ve been purring on offence all season up until they ran into a very good Chargers team last Monday night. Carr averages 350 passing yards a game this season, and that includes the 196 yard game against the Chargers, but there’s no reason to suggest he’ll struggle too much against a middling Bears defence. IN Ruggs, Waller & Renfrow he has a dynamic receiver core to work with and Jacobs will keep the defence honest enough on the ground. Of course if Khalil Mack misses Sundays game then this bet only looks better. Paddy Power/BFSB also have Derek Carr to have 1+ passing TDs in each half 11/8 which also looks like a good bet at the price.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Arizona Cardinals v San Francisco 49ers

Trey Lance 2+ Passing Touchdowns, San Francisco 49ers to Win @ 4/1

San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals – #WhatOddsPaddy – Featured

Both Teams to score points in all 4 Quarters @ 15/2

Kyler Murray & Trey Lance to combine for 550+ passing yards & to combine 5+ passing TDs @ 15/2

I’m going to take a punt on Trey Lance, and a punt that Trey Lance is actually a very competent QB. They key stat I like is that Lance is averaging 8.5 yards/attempt when he’s played this season, that puts him in the range of Mahomes (8.6 yards/attempt). If that continues on Sunday then Trey should throw for a few yards and he’ll have to if the 49ers are going to keep up with Kyler and the Cardinals. I would suggest splitting a stake between all three of those bets and treating them almost as one bet. If I’m wrong and Lance has a poor game then likely all 3 will lose but the bottom two give some insurance in case the 49ers struggle to convert in the redzone and the joint bet means a big Kyler game gives it a chance even if Lance has a poor game.


RequestABet Specials 11/2 to 10/1 – Atlanta Falcons v New York Jets

Jets to Win, Z.Wilson 245+ Passing Yards & 1+ Interceptions @ 11/2

I’ll have a stab at this offering from Skybet for the early London game this week. I fancy the Jets to go well, especially with the issues the Falcons are seeing with their receiving corp. I also like the noise coming out of the Jets and their travel to London. Robert Saleh, who has experience of the London trip was quoted as saying “The performance department has a really cool plan” when asked about the travel arrangements. The travel to London often decides the game more so than the quality of the two teams so I’m intrigued by that ‘cool plan.’ If the Jets are to win then Wilson will have to play okay and throw for a few yards.

That’s all for this week. Request-A-Bets need high scoring games to see a lot of luck and I see a few too many potentially drab games this week so I’ll limit myself to just the four matches. Best of luck this week.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 4

Popular RequestABets – NFL Week 4 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

Both Teams To Score A Rushing TD in Each of the 9.05pm, 9.25pm & Sunday Night Football Games @ 35/1

This is a bet I like and the teams in the late window this week look decent bets to get a rushing TD. I think the team most likely to cost us this bet would be the Steelers in Green Bay, but the Packers defence hasn’t looked watertight this year so hopefully Big Ben can hit a big play or two and get them in position to punch one in.

RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Los Angeles Chargers v Las Vegas Raiders

Justin Herbert & Derek Carr 300+ Passing Yards Each @ 3/1

Carr & Herbert both average over 300 yards a game this year, Carr is in fact up at over 400 yards. Both teams have the ability to make big plays and this should be a tight game meaning both should keep throwing for the majority of the game. At 3/1 it has to be a bet.

Cleveland Browns @ Minnesota Vikings – #WhatOddsPaddy – Up to 9/2

Nick Chubb to have 100+ rushing yards & to score 1+ TDs @ 16/5

Simply a price play here again, Chubb has been threatening to hit 100+ 1+ all year and at odds of 3/1 or better he only has to hit it once every four weeks to see a return. This would be week four so it seems right he would get there this week….

Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams – #WhatOddsPaddy – Customer Requests

Matthew Stafford & Kyler Murray to combine for 550+ passing yards & to combine 5+ passing TDs @ 10/3

We have the third & sixth top passing QBs of the year so far matching up. This should be high scoring and both sides have shown they’re willing to throw the ball around. 550 & 5+ at 10/3 looks very inviting. I wouldn’t put anyone off “Matthew Stafford & Kyler Murray to combine for 600+ passing yards & to combine 6+ passing TDs @ 8/1” either.

I think I’ll leave it there for this week, some very enticing matchups but not so much value floating about. Best of luck again with your bets.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 3

By Tom @BettingGSW

Week 2 was quite tough so I won’t dwell on it for too long. I think the Cowboys @ Chargers game will have been analysed to death by now. It was a game that if played another 9 times would have a bunch of points and touchdowns, unfortunately some sloppy play on both side meant there were only 37 points rather than 55-60 as the game script would suggest there should have been. The most frustrating bet was Chubb 100+ Rush Yards & 1+ TD. 95 yards from Nick Chubb meant that fell a little short.

Either QB 500+ Passing Yards 

I’ll keep suggesting this bet, I will hit one week this season so just keep backing until it does. Remember odds of 200/1 or better would make it a value bet.

6pm, 9.05pm & 9.25pm Match RequestABets – NFL Week 3 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

1+ Game to go to overtime @ 13/8

This bet is purely numbers based. Since 2017 there have been 51 games go to overtime, that’s 1 overtime game for every 20 games played, so overtime is about a 20/1 shot. Using a not so simple calculation, that means the chances of an overtime game in the 13 matches in the 6pm, 9:0pm & 9:25pm window is around 2.12. So odds of 2.63 or 13/8 mean it’s a good bet.


9.05pm & 9.25pm Match RequestABets – NFL Week 3 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials

Each Team To Score A Rushing Touchdown in Each Game @ 20/1

Only four games in the 9:05pm & 9:25pm window, so 20/1 makes this an interesting prospect. I think getting the Jets to score a rushing TD against Denver will probably decide this bet, the other 7 teams involved look decent odds on shots.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Cleveland Browns v Chicago Bears

Nick Chubb 100+ Rushing Yards & to Score a TD @ 3/1

I’ll go back to this bet, I can’t believe we’re getting 3/1 on it and at that price Chubb has to be an auto-back. The Browns are 7pt favourites and so like last week there is a chance for some cheap yards as the Browns run the clock in the 4th Quarter.


Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs – #WhatOddsPaddy – Customer Requests

Patrick Mahomes & Justin Herbert to combine for 600+ passing yards & to combine 6+ passing TDs @ 5/1

This bet is available on Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook. Despite the Chargers letting us down last week when we were expecting points, I’ll give them another go. I expect Mahomes as always to contribute around 300-350 yards and 3 passing TDs, so we would just need Herbert to have a big game. Given the Chargers will have to throw to keep up with the Chiefs the effort will be there, so we just need the execution.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Tennessee Titans v Indianapolis Colts

Derrick Henry 100+ Rushing Yards & to Score a TD @ 9/4

Not the most exciting bet ever but one that has some value. Derrick Henry showed he’s still the best running back in the league and the Titans show how much they trust him. Being down in Seattle they still leant on Henry, if anything they gave him more of the football.

That is all for this week, these should all go very close so hopefully one gets over the line. Best of luck with your bets this weekend.

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 2

By Tom @BettingGSW

So here we go with week 2. First a quick round-up of how the bets went in Week 1.

Each team to score a rushing TD in the 6pm matches never really came close, at 300/1 it was always going to be a long shot but it’s a bet I like and have a good feeling about, might be one for a week when there are fewer 6pm matches incase Sky are lazy and throw out the same price. A.Jones, A.Kamara & N.Chubb 60+ Rushing Yards & 1+ TD Each was a frustrating one. Kamara & Chubb did the business comfortably but Jones was never really given a chance as the Packers laid the biggest of eggs in week 1. A very overpriced and good value loser that one.

Another bet to fall into that category was Chiefs -5, N.Chubb & T.Hill 1+ Anytime Touchdown Each, P.Mahomes 300+ Passing Yards @ 7/1. Just let down by the Chiefs -5, this game went entirely as expected and on another day the Chiefs would probably cover the -5 and give us a win. The less said about Derrick Henry and the Titans the better.

So a couple of stinkers but more good bets than bad last week, just missing the little bit of luck needed to get a winner, and at the big prices it would only take one winner to return a very nice profit on the week.

Now week 2…. it’s often a hard week to bet I find. You have your pre-season thoughts about teams and then you have their week 1 display and so often they aren’t aligned. It’s hard not to just bet exactly what happened in week 1 thinking that freak performances will be repeated.


Later Games RequestABet Specials – NFL Week 2 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials


R.Wilson, D.Prescott, P.Mahomes & K.Murray 25+ Rushing Yards Each @ 25/1

This looks a very enticing prospect given the mobility of all four QBs and given it’s early in the seassn there should be no issue with any of them nursing injuries that might hinder their scrambling ability. I expect this one to go very close and I’d have it closer to a 10/1-15/1 shot than a 25/1 and so it has to be a bet.

RequestABet Specials 80/1 and above

Either QB 500+ Passing Yards 

I’ll go back to the maths again with this bet as I spoke about last week – we expect to see 500+ yards from a QB around once every 181 games. This means odds of 200/1 or better would make it a value bet. This week there are 4 games that satisfy that 200/1+ criteria: 49ers @ Eagles; Patriots @ Jets; Broncos @ Jaguars; Texans @ Browns and Saints @ Panthers (400/1!)


RequestABet Specials 11/1 to 28/1 – Green Bay Packers v Detroit Lions

Aaron Rodgers 300+ Passing Yards, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 100+ Receiving Yards @ 11/1

Next up I’ll got Monday Night Football and the Packers. I really have no clue what to expect from Green Bay this week. It’s hard to overstate just how bad they were against the Saints and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were equally as bad this week. But I have to think that professional pride will come into play and Rodgers will not want to play as badly again, however much he might hate his organisation. The Lions have two rookie corners and Rodgers would normally take them to pieces. I’ll take a punt that he’ll do a similar thing at home in Lambeau on Monday night and the Valdes-Scantlings speed this bet might only need a couple of completions to come in. I expect Rodgers will hit 300+ and the difference in odds between MVS and Adams hitting 100+ to go with him means it’s worth punting on MVS to go big.

RequestABet Specials 11/2 to 10/1 – Green Bay Packers v Detroit Lions

Aaron Rodgers & Jared Goff 300+ Passing Yards Each @ 11/2

This bet has similar reasoning to the one above. Goff performed pretty well in Week 1 against a defense that is projected to be much better than the one he’ll face this week. Given that he’ll likely see some garbage time again with the Lions down big in the 4th quarter I think there’s a very good chance Goff goes over 300 again this week. If we do see said garbage time then Rodgers will likely have played well in the first three quarters and so this bet is quite nicely correlated.


Popular RequestABets – Los Angeles Chargers v Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys to Win, A.Cooper & C.Lamb 1+ TD Each, D.Prescott 2+ Pass TDs, E.Elliott 75+ Rush Yds @ 18/1

This is a bet that is very nicely correlated all round. Meaning that certain aspects of the bet in hitting will give other aspects of it a much greater chance of coming in. For example, Cooper & Lamb each scoring a TD means Prescott will have his 2+ Passing TDs (baring a rush from one of them); it also means the Cowboys have scored a few points improving their chances of winning, obviously! And then Elliot 75+ Rush Yards is a separate part, the Chargers gave up almost 5 yards a carry to the Washington Football Team and a similar performance will see Elliot go close. I am worried about Pollard taking carries away from Zeke but I’ll give it a couple of weeks before it starts to put me off betting Elliot related bets.

RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Los Angeles Chargers v Dallas Cowboys

Justin Herbert 300+ Passing Yards, Mike Williams 100+ Receiving Yards @ 5/1

Another bet from the same game… I think there’s a chance the Cowboys defence is truly rubbish this year and this bet is a way of exploiting that. Similar to the Adams/MVS conundrum from the same bet in Lions @ Packers, we have an Allen/Williams debate. This is solved just on price. The same bet with Allen 100+ yards is priced at 5/2, I don’t think there’s a 100% greater chance of Allen going over 100 compared to Williams and so the bigger price with Williams is the way to go.


RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Cleveland Browns v Houston Texans

Nick Chubb 100+ Rushing Yards & to Score a TD @ 9/4

I was shocked by the price here, I can’t see Chubb being much bigger than 1.66 (4/6) to score a TD and given how much the Browns will surely be up by in the second half we might see Chubb with 25 carries and he won’t need anywhere near that number to go over 100 yards rushing.

So a few more bets this week and a couple of them I’m very confident on. I haven’t suggested a staking plan for these but as a rough guide I’d be playing 2pts on anything 4/1 or lower, 1pt on anything from 4/1 to 25/1 or so. 0.5pt on anything 25/1 to 100/1 and then 0.1-0.25pts on the 100/1 long shots.

Best of luck this week and hopefully there’s a nice winner or two on Sunday, and Monday night!

NFL Request A Bet Roundup – Week 1

By Tom Pain @BettingGSW –

Welcome to the first in hopefully a successful series looking at Request-A-Bets. These offer great opportunities to find massive value bets if you can sort out the few decent bets from the mountain of rubbish. Most of my selections will be on Skybet, they offer the most variety and I assume most people have access to a Skybet account. 


6pm Match RequestABets – NFL Week 1 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials


The first bet to recommend is on Skybet, and this is purely a price play. In a 17 game season, giving us 18 weeks of football, this bet at 300/1 only needs to hit once every 16 seasons to make it a value proposition.  

Both Teams To Score A Rushing TD in each of the 6pm Games @ 300/1

This next offering from Sky also looks enticing. It’s hard to know how the Saints will be with Winston under centre but you have to fancy Kamara to get into the endzone and 60+ yards likely only needs him to break one or two big runs off. You also have to think the Saints lean on Kamara early given Winston’s history of interceptions. Chubb is also a risk given the Chiefs could be 21-0 up before the first quarter ends, but like Kamara, Chubb could break one for 60+ yards at any time. At 25/1 it looks a good play. 

A.Jones, A.Kamara & N.Chubb 60+ Rushing Yards & 1+ TD Each @ 25/1


Later Games RequestABet Specials – NFL Week 1 RedZone Treble Price Boost & RequestABet Specials


RequestABet Specials 80/1 and above – Los Angeles Rams v Chicago Bears

A bet I find interesting is “Either QB 500+ Passing Yards” – this bet isn’t on every game but I’m sure Skybet will price it up if asked. The maths to this bet make it an interesting proposition on every match. Since the start of the 2016 season there have been 9 times a QB has hit 500+ passing yards. With 272 games in a season, that means in the 5 seasons since the start of the 2016 season there have been 1632 games. With 9 instances of 500+ passing yards, this means we expect to see it around once every 181 games. This means odds of 200/1 or better would make it a value bet. 

Therefore, I suggest a bet of:

Either QB 500+ Passing Yards @ 200/1

This bet is recommended on any game at any price of 200/1 or greater. 

RequestABet Specials – Kansas City Chiefs v Cleveland Browns

We have to look at betting RABs on the Chiefs. The bet that stood out for me is:

Chiefs -5, N.Chubb & T.Hill 1+ Anytime Touchdown Each, P.Mahomes 300+ Passing Yards @ 7/1

RequestABet Specials up to 5/1 – Tennessee Titans v Arizona Cardinals

The final bet I will recommend is on the Titans Cardinals match. Again a price play, this bet could well be 4/6 (1.66) a couple of weeks into the season, so at 11/8 (2.38) it has to be a bet. 

Derrick Henry 100+ Rushing Yards & to Score a TD @ 11/8

Hopefully Sky will price up earlier next week and I can give more detailed explanations. 

Best of luck this week, I’m confident we will hit a 3-figure bet at some point this season.

Betting Preview – NFC East

By Tim Monk

Hello darkness, my old friend.

The NFC East isn’t synonymous with making profit. You wouldn’t have had many accumulators including teams from this division last year. Well, if you did you’d be in the poor house.

Ante post wise and the division title, its been nearly 2 decades since a team retained the division title (2004), form book usually goes out of the window and is a scrappy division and throw in the injuries, you have yourself a betting nightmare. Washington won the division after going 1-5 last year, hope you all got on. Its always a candidate for worst to first, the only advice usually to heed is to avoid the favourite or last year’s winner.

Odds taken end July 2021

That bet is Washington Football Team to retain, yes RETAIN the NFC East. Sitting at around 2/1, they have the best defence on paper, on the field on the stat sheet by a country mile.

I could reel off the heavy investment that front 7 has received over the past couple of years from the NFL draft including Chase Young, Montez Sweat, Daron Payne, Jonathan Allen to name just a couple from the 1st round.

They gave the eventual Super Bowl champs, the Tampa Bay Bucs the biggest scare in the post season last year, and that was with Taylor Heinicke. No disrespect to the guy, especially after his dive to the pylon in said game, but if they have an average Quarterback playing the position in that game, things may be looking a lot different.

It’s the 2nd season for Ron Rivera in Washington, and despite his discontent at the vaccination status of the team, they just have to be a lot shorter than the current 2/1 they find themselves at. They have brought in Ryan Fitzpatrick, who isn’t to be trusted for a whole season and there is a reason why he has never played in a playoff game. They have also acquired the services of WR Curtis Samuel to go with Terry McLaurin. Added to that Adam Humphries is a signing that has gone under the radar and also selected a couple of wideouts from the draft including the potentially exciting Dyami Brown.

The defence is enough to win them a few games this season and can account for any of Fitzpatrick’s erratic episodes. The talented RB Antonio Gibson should continue to produce behind a competent Washington offensive line, backed up by JD McKissic.

For me the reason the prices are how they are is because this screams “bookies dont want to take any money” on Dallas.

Sometimes in gambling, you’ll find what is called “false favourites”. This usually means the bookies cripple the price of a certain selection, not because they think it will win or they think they are the best, it’s because they dont want to be on the wrong side of that selection or they want a “green” line on it, meaning they want the favourite to be a winning selection for the house.

That, for me my friends, is the Dallas Cowboys in 2021. Hard knocks team, hype around the star and now particularly wealthy Quarterback Dak Prescott. Happy to debate whether Dallas are worthy favourites, however i will not have that the Washington Football Team aren’t at least closer in the betting to them.

Dallas are horrendous on defence and there isn’t too much they have done in the offseason to think that they’ll be anything than just below average. The signing of Malik Hooker looks good on paper, but 1st round draft pick Micah Parsons has character questions, the Cornerback group have a lot of question marks and the linebackers have more than a point to prove with Jaylon Smith coming off a poor season, Leighton vander Esch struggling to stay healthy, taking over that mantle from Sean Lee.

Even if they shave a couple of points of the 30 pt average they gave up in 2020, they’ll still struggle to get to double digit wins. You can’t even mark them up confidently for 3-4 divisional wins, let alone 10 for the season.

Do they have the best offence, yes, and it’s by a country mile, especially if the offensive line stays healthy, but even that is a coin flip these days. They had 12 different offensive line combinations in their 16 games last season, #NotGreatBob.

Even with all of the above guaranteed and having a number one scoring offence, it’s hard to cover up all the cracks on a pourous defence. Dallas even with Dak struggled in their first 4 full games last year and were only a successful watermelon kick away from an 0-4 start as they had seemingly more double digit deficits than you have had hot dinners. This is despite averaging 31.5pts through those first 4 games.

The division will likely go down to the wire as it usually does and in all honestly, will likely hinge on the head to head matchups between Dallas and Washington, which come in week 14 and 16. Going head to head, Washington’s defence absolutely mauled Dallas last year including an humiliation on Thanksgiving. Yes, Dak was missing, but you could have had Tom Brady or Peyton Manning behind center and it still would have been a bloodbath.

Dallas have a tough start to the season with the opening kickoff cameras on them at Raymond James Statdium as they face the defending champs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers before travelling to the Chargers in week 2. 3 winnable games follow at home before a potentially pivotal game at New England in week 6 before their bye. They’ll need to be 3-3 going in to that.

Making a case for the other 2 teams in the division. Well, it’s the NFC East.

The Philadelphia Eagles (seemingly) have given the keys to Jalen Hurts for a year. There are continuous rumours swirling that Deshaun Watson could pull on the Eagles jersey in 2021 and if that move comes to fruition, Philadelphia’s odds will come crashing down.

They employ 1st year rookie Head Coach Nick Sirianni and you can expect a lot of “Hey, Siri” jokes plastered across social media. He’ll look to improve on the 4-11-1 record from last season in a season where they waited until week 4 to record their first win and went 1-7 after their bye week.

Similar to Dallas, Philadelphia need an offensive line that is healthy for Hurts to have a chance (less so if Watson comes through the entrance) to make things happen. That being said Hurts is a mobile QB, which is any leveller for poor offensive line play. Drafting his teammate in the 1st round will help too as Devonta Smith, WR from Alabama joins a particularly poor group of players the position.

Zach Ertz seemingly couldn’t find a new home and miraculously is “sorting through” the problems he seemingly had with the Franchise. He was underwhelming in 2020 and Dallas Goedert may still have more playing time in 2021 at the position, but expect both to be on the field for the most part, especially if the aforementioned poor O-line play or injuries rears it’s ugly head.

The much maligned Cornerback group of the Eagles was bolstered by Steven Nelson, who comes over from Pittsburgh and joins Darius Slay, one of the premier corners. Anthony Harris was also added to the secondary of the Eagles which may make them a bit closer to the average. They’ll look to improve the 26th ranked defence in the redzone and 22nd in terms of points allowed per drive on average.

The Eagles probably are in too much tumult to cause a stink but as it always is with the NFC East, they all love playing party poopers when it comes to the divisional games.

Moving over to the New York Giants, already had some fun and games as Daniel Jones found himself at the bottom of a big Giant pile, much to the dismay of Joe Judge who then sent them running for a little while. Kelvin Benjamin and Joe Judge if you believe some reports, have had a few back and forths, leading to Benjamin’s release only after 1 day in New York. Saquon Barkley looks unlikely to be ready for week one. Oh, and Jason Garrett is still around.

A shaky offensive line has not had much attention given to it in the offseason and fully expect that to be part of their troubles again this season.

Kenny Golladay and eyebrow raising 1st round WR selection Kadarius Toney join a middling set of WR in Slayton, Shepard and TE Evan Engram. Golladay has injury troubles in the past year and there are already whispers that Toney has not been the most focused or motivated since being drafted and participating in camp.

The defence should be competent enough after re-signing Leonard Williams and acquiring Adoree Jackson at Cornerback.

That being said, it’s just feels like an absolute mess in New York, something which the New York media should have fun with in 2021 and I do not see them troubling for the division title or a playoff spot.

It’s likely that only 1 team progresses to the post season from this division, so as a Washington backer, i have no interested in any of them at the prices.

Other Markets:

Finishing Positions

Dallas – 1st – 5/4 , 2nd – 2/1 , 3rd – 4/1, 4th – 13/2

Washington- 1st –2/1 , 2nd – 2/1 , 3rd – 11/4 , 4th – 4/1

Philadelphia – 1st – 11/2, 2nd – 4/1, 3rd – 9/4, 4th – 5/4

New York – 1st – 9/2, 2nd – 3/1 , 3rd – 19/10, 4th – 2/1

Selected prop bets:

Just to remind you that there are 17 regular season games this year, which is why you might find the lines a bit higher than you normally would if you are cross referencing previous year’s totals. On first glance, Ryan Fitzpatrick’s number looks quite high. He has only played a full season 3 times and his highest total is 3,905, which was for the Jets. However, i think that they’ll be a defensive side and I am not sure how gunslinger happy he will be in this team. Dak Prescott on the other hand could smash 5,000 yards. he was on course for a million of them through 5 games (had 1875) and still ranked 32nd in passing yards in 2021 despite playing less than a third of the season. The defence is not that much improved and could see the same pattern as last year. Difficult to gauge Jalen Hurts’ line as they’ll likely be behind a lot this year but Hurts, like myself is a leg man. Daniel Jones has barely reached 3,000 in the either of his first 2 seasons. His line of 3,800.5 looks fairly inflated. Of the props below, the absolute standout bet is Dak Prescott over 3.5 rushing TDs. He had 3 last year in just over 4 games. He did have 3 the year before but i would be shocked to see this go under. He had 6 in each of the first 3 seasons in the NFL.

Passing Yard lines: Ryan Fitzpatrick – 3,900.5, Jalen Hurts – 3,650.5, Dak Prescott – 4,795.5, Daniel Jones – 3,800.5

Passing TDs: Fitzpatrick – 23 , Hurts – 20.5, Prescott – 32.5, Jones – 24

Rushing Yard lines: Antonio Gibson – 1,025.5, Ezekiel Elliott – 1100.5, Miles Sanders – 1000.5

Rushing TDs: Gibson – 9.5, Elliott – 9.5,Prescott – 3.5, Hurts – 7.5, Sanders – 7,

Receiving Yard lines: McLaurin – 1,180.5, Cooper – 1,175.5, Lamb – 1,050.5, Golladay – 1000.5

All in all, the division is always a tough one to bet on, however it seems to be a tale of two halves. the top 2 being Washington and Dallas, Philadelphia and New York being the bottom 2. Redzone are offering 7/5 on Dallas and Washington in the top 2 positions come January, which appeals considering the state of the franchises. Is also a nice security blanket of sorts if you are betting Washington to win the division

Favourite bets:

  • Washington Football Team to win NFC East – 23/10 (07/08/21)
  • New York Giants under 7 wins – 11/10 (if you can find 7.5 wins line take that)
  • Dak Prescott over 3.5 rushing TDs – 10/13
  • Dallas / Washington Dual forecast – 7/5
