The Chargers choked away what should have been a nice payout last Thursday and the Panthers are worse than we thought, but we’re on to this week.

September 24: UEFA Nations League- Switzerland & Czech Republic

To kick off the weekend, we’ve got two smaller bets for the UEFA Nations League. Both will be ‘Money line Draw No Bet’ picks.

First up is Switzerland against Spain. Spain is heavily favored at -700 on the ‘draw no bet’ line, with the Swiss coming in at +400.

Second is the Czech Republic vs Portugal. The Czech’s are +235 while Portugal stands at -330 on the ML.

Our reasoning behind these underdog picks: the field of play is open. Sure, Spain is a great team, and they beat Switzerland 1-0 the last time the two squared off. But soccer is a fickle sport, and all the Swiss need is one shot to walk away with a win.

The same goes for the Czech Republic, who have a shot at upsetting Portugal.

Our plays on the ‘draw no bet’ line is insurance in case neither team can find the back of the net.

Rebel’s Pick: Switzerland ML Draw No Bet (+400) @ 05U, Czech Republic ML Draw No Bet (+235) @ 05U

September 25: NFL- Baltimore Ravens vs New England Patriots

The Ravens head to Foxboro as 2.5-point favorites (-110) over the Patriots and we don’t see why this shouldn’t hit.

Lamar Jackson amassed over 400 total yards and four touchdowns in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. He’s playing like a man that wants to get paid and is making a case for MVP early in the season.

The Patriots aren’t bad, but they’re in the mushy middle of the NFL right now. They have a good defense but lack true playmakers on offense. Asking Mac Jones to keep up with Jackson is a tall order, and we don’t see it happening.

Meanwhile, Baltimore is coming off a heart-breaking Week 2 loss to the Dolphins that should provide them with plenty of incentive to go out and decimate a New England team that struggles to put points up on the board.

Ravens should cover, even if it takes Lamar putting up another 100+ yard game on the ground to get them there.

*Odds from DraftKings

Rebel’s Pick: Baltimore Ravens -2.5 (-110) @ 1U
