If you must check out stats, then look at this one. Before you bet on your team, look to see if they are going against a top notch NFL pass defense or a pass defense that is hapless. It could make all the difference in the betting world. Remember when it was “Montana to Rice “or “Bradshaw to Swan”? How many games were covered when we heard the announcer scream “TOUCHDOWN…Aikman to Irvin” or “Kelly to Reed” when Buffalo was winning everything minus the SuperBowl. And for you real old timers let’s not forget the modern day football architect of Johnny Unitas to Raymond Berry. But the real question is what makes the duo? Is it the quarterback or the wide receiver? Or do they have both. I think it is important to track these football duo’s for pointspread covers as most belong to teams that will be laying the points.
My Top 5 Quarterback-Wide Receiver Duo”s to start the NFL 2011 Season are:
Upcoming and ready to move into the Top 5: Matt Ryan – Roddy White – Drew Brees – Marques Colston – Matt Stafford- Calvin Johnson
Pay attention to “key injuries” on the defensive side with the corners and check out if the defensive line will matchup against the offensive line for their upcoming game. Sometimes handicapping can be as easy as knowing which teams match up well with certain teams. When you find one…POUND IT! GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON!
