Fantasy football players and professional sports bettors are making last minute adjustments with NFL injuries and late information. Reports say that Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz will have the full playbook available to him despite taking just 39 snaps in the preseason. Miami Dolphins WR Davante Parker is out against the Steelers. Look for the following players to suit up and get action: Saints rookie WR Michael Thomas, Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, Jaguars RB Chris Ivory, Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham, and Lions WR Golden Tate. Graham will be limited for Seattle though.
These are in addition to the well-known injuries and suspensions of key players, including Patriots superstar TE Rob Gronkowski being declared out early in the week. NFL weather says temperatures will be in the high 90s in Arizona tonight. For the most part, wind and rain are not a factor, but also expect a kickoff temperature of 91 in Jacksonville. Check out the top NFL handicappers picks in the video below.
The biggest sports service bets are in. Lines-Maker.com writer Bob Warner reports that the top public consensus bet is Green Bay getting 89 percent of tickets written in Vegas and offshore against Jacksonville. “The public loves their road favorites,” said Warner laughing. Oakland and New Orleans over at 76 percent is the top public totals wager.
