The Lakers season has been nothing but a disappointment so far this year, as the team stands in 9th place in the west holding a record 9 games under .500 at29-39. Matters didn’t seem to get much better last night either, as the Kings easily blew out the Lakers, 124-104. That isn’t the only headline from the night though…
Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook is having the worst year of his career, receiving death threats, and taking a TON of heat right now. With that being said being trash talked by a team that has barely won 39% of their games the last three calendar years and a team that has not been that relevant since the early 2000s really didn’t help matters.
Westbrook had this to say about the Kings postgame,
“I honestly pay no mind to it. They weren’t talking to me… Nobody over there has done anything in this league… They won a game, happy for them, (I’ll) move on to the next one.”
Woah. Shots fired. But is he wrong? The Wolves have been a relatively quiet team in a small market historically, only winning one playoff game in the last 15 seasons. With a young emerging superstar in Anthony Edwards, a very good PG in D’Lo, and arguably the best shooting 7-footer in NBA history in Karl Anthony Towns obviously, these Timberwolves might just “do something” in this league.

The Nationals are on a 10-game road trip and started it off well winning the first 3 out of 4 games on the trip, after that, they have managed to lose their last 3 games. RHP Josiah Gray will take the mound for DC, and the right-hander struggled vs the Rockies at home last week 5 ER, 3 H, 4 BB in 5 ⅓ innings. I’m expecting the Rockies to hit the ball pretty well tonight and take down the struggling Nationals.
At the beginning of the season, everyone and their brother had the Cowboys finishing 1st in the NFC East and the Eagles finishing most likely last. That narrative changed though. After we saw a solid outing by Philly Week 1 against the Falcons, these teams are a little closer than one would think in my eyes. The Eagles fast start was key, being able to bring in a healthy offensive and defensive front was critical, but they aren’t nearly as healthy anymore.
Fletcher Cox, a staple on the Eagles defense for years, has been dealing with an illness this week and the loss of Brandon Graham is not good at all. Not to mention, starting LT Brandon Brooks is out for the week. The Cowboys definitely are not contenders yet, but last week they captured a very resilient win. With this being said, take Dallas -3.5 or -3 if confident.
Final score prediction: Cowboys: 31 Eagles: 27 (58 points total)
Can the Bears stay within striking distance against a very deep and talented Cleveland Browns team. Probably not, Rookie Quarterbacks are 0-4 so far this season against the spread. Nagy has never developed a good quarterback as the Bears HC so I doubt Field’s first start will be anything other than sub-par. Take the Browns.
WTF @ Bills U45.5 (-110)
The Bills are solid on both sides of the ball, but still another animal when it comes to offense. Going into Week 3, it is inevitable to say that the defense has played better than Josh Allen & company have on offense. As we know, Washington’s front 7 has struggled the first 2 weeks, but it’s only a matter of time until the beast awakes, and I think it will be tomorrow. Their front 7 is ELITE, to say the least. Heinicke is better than advertised as well, and has shown it multiple times in the past year. With that being said, I believe the Bills will keep WFT’s line in check. The game is supposed to be very windy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a kick or two are offline. Ultimately, take the under.
Saints +3 (-120)
Mac Jones will be a good quarterback in the NFL for a while, but he is still a rookie. Although he is the perfect pair for the Pats & their staff, ultimately I believe he is not ready to beat anyone remotely good. I believe Sean Payton will be able to formulate a game plan to shut down the Patriots offense although Jameis is always unpredictable…. Take New Orleans +3
Titans -5.5 (-110)
If Wentz can’t play (ankle) which looks like the case, Jacob Eason or Brett Hundley will be taking snaps under center vs the Titans. We all know Vrabel is an elite NFL coach, and Derrick Henry has rushed for over 100 yards in his last 4 contests for a total of 429 yards and 4 TDs. Take the Titans -5.5.
Cardinals -7.5 (-110)
Maybe my bet of the week. The Cards were looking like arguably the most impressive and dangerous teams in Week 1. Arizona averages a high 36 points a game, and the Jaguars allow 30 a game. I think that Jacksonville made a mistake in bringing back Urban, and the ship just might start sinking soon. Expect Arizona to run away with this one. Take the Cards (-7.5)
