The NFL is officially back, and we can confirm that some beatings were handed out in style on Sunday, as we tip this podcast with our Week 1 Review.
Wade and Ryan both went 10-7 on Week 1, which isn’t bad considering how many upsets were flipped.
Both guys had some solid tips that turned into rocking picks, but also missed some glaring big opportunities on the board. (Hello Texans!)
In this podcast, Wade and Ryan look back at week 1 in the NFL, and how they fared with their betting brains.

Here are some of the games we look at in this episode.
Eagles vs Falcons
Wade was all over Philly and Hurts, pegging this one as a big upset over the host Falcons.
Ryan figured Matt Ryan would find a way to win this one, although he never did.
The Eagles beat the heck out of Atlanta on Sunday with a solid combination of a dual running game, great new receivers, and an inspired Jalen Hurts.
Philly truly could be special this year.
Steelers vs Bills
To say Ryan was gutted in this result is an understatement.
The Steel curtain of D was all over Buffalo and thwarting Josh Allen’s ability to get going.
Despite being a 5.5 point underdog, Pittsburgh was able to frustrate a home crowd and their chances at going all the way in the AFC.
It did make this conference a whole lot more interesting though.
Cardinals vs Titans
Wade called this game the best DFS opportunity of the week, and boy was he right.
Kyler and co. pounded the hapless Titans D relentlessly, making Tannehill look like a chump in his own house.
Not only was Murray able to spread the ball, but the Arizona D was able to spread Tannehill out with repeated sacks.
Ryan thought his Titans would reign supreme, but now the world is looking at them to get it together if they have any chance in the AFC.
Seahawks vs Colts
Wade was sure that the hometown Colts would be able to buck away the limp Seattle D and establish their running game.
Ryan was chanting ‘Russ! Russ! Russ!’ ahead of this match, confident that RW would be able to rally the troops together.
Ryan got this one right, as the Seahawks actually looked good in this one.
Packers vs Saints
Bears vs Rams
Wade thought his Bears might put up some sort of fight against the LA D, but it wasn’t to be.
Matt Stafford had a career high night, and Justin Fields stayed healthy…so there’s that.
Chicago is going to need to find some resolve to win some of these tough games ahead in a weak ass division.
Ravens vs Raiders
Ryan was sure that the Las Vegas Raiders would roll big dice in their home opener against the Ravens, and boy was he right.
This exciting game was an up and down affair, with the Raiders coming out with an inspired win.
