NFL DFS Analysis
Thursday is always great because it’s the day before the weekend starts and we get an NFL game to sweat. The primetime games have yet to disappoint this season, but that could come to a crashing halt this evening. The good news is that these teams have surprisingly played well in the first two games of the season. The Panthers are 2-0 after beating the Jets and Saints, while the Texans are 1-1 after beating the Jaguars and putting up a fight against the Browns. We have an 8-point spread on top tonight with a 43-point total.
