    Seahawks DL Jadeveon Clowney (core) did not participate in practice Wednesday.
    Clowney has been on-and-off the field for most of the season with various injuries and is likely headed for a game-time decision this weekend. Clowney will need to get in a limited practice this week before we have full confidence he suits up. Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (knee) also did not practice.

    With Halapoulivaati Vaitai having invaluable experience as one of the league’s most versatile backups, the loss of Brooks should be mitigated enough that the run-blocking will continue to be a strength, while Johnson’s return after a three week hiatus will bring much stability on “(player-popup #carson-wentz)Carson Wentz”:/players/carson-wentz-35558’s frontside. Kelce remains a rock in the middle while Seumalo has been solid and steady in his first year as the full-time starter, with Jason Peters defying logic by remaining an above average starter at 37-years old. This is a group that has played in the biggest of games before with multiple elite players still in place (Kelce, Johnson) plus excellent coaching to boot

    Thanks for that info. I heard on nfl network or something that the eagles line is still banged up, but that clears that up

    Hey Bif, bet 365 is my home and from Canada also. Only
    Thing is most Canadian credit cards won’t let you deposit. Luckily I have only deposited once but I had to use a prepaid card to do it. Also I recommend using there online chat while setting up it speeds
    The process.

    I’ve used Bet365 for years and used to use Pinnacle – I have not deposited in a couple years but yah I remember they didn’t take one of my CC’s (not sure which one I deal with TD and BMO so one worked and one didn’t).

    Everyone knows Canadian money is like monopoly

    Yah but if you have enough of it, you can buy Park Place and Boardwalk and then win the game

    They gave me some free Encore rooms and buffets originally. Not so much now.
    Played Blackjack once. After the dealer paid me 6-5 on a BJ I had to leave. With table limits so high, they shouldn’t have to do that.

    They have very few 15.00 tables unfortunately they pay 6/5

    They focus mostly 50.00 and up for 3/2 payouts unless it’s slow they may drop to 25.00 min.

    I live very close to the Indiana state line. Can I actually drive to Richmond, place a bet on DK for the NFL games, and then drive back to my home state of Ohio? Will that work?

    What QB is everyone leaning this weekend? I’m not sure how accurate Awesomo’s rankings are on Thursday, but they look ridiculous currently. He has Watson at 28%, Brees at 21%, Russ at 19%, Wentz at 13%, Tanny is at 3% and Brady at 5%. It’s showing Cousins and Allen at .1% which completely throws it all off. Part of me is liking the idea of playing Russ/Wentz heavy. I like that game to be higher scoring than maybe many expect. Cousins and Allen are both interesting too if their ownership is truly that low. I could see Cousins in a catch up role and Allen should be in line for success against Houston.

    Those ownership %‘s on Watson are ridiculous. I’d guess Bree’s, Wentz and Russ are the top 3 in possibly that order. Watson will not be chalk Vs an elite secondary without Fuller.

    Thanks and it ain’t 55 degrees where I’m at – that’s ok as I’m headed to Mexico next week for almost 3 weeks – I’m home this weekend for the WildCards then gone and I’ll be watching the Divisional Playoffs and the Conference Championships from the beach.

    I have a quick 12 hour overnight stay near ORD on my way home; I’ll have to check if there is anything nearby to lay a wager on the Super Bowl

    It’s a mile from my parents house and it’s not that small of a casino but the sportsbook doesn’t open until the spring. My buddy (me too) used to go to the club a lot at the casino and he’s the one that told me the club had closed to become a sportsbook. I thought because the club closed a while back that the sportsbook would open JAN 1 but I guess I was wrong. The casino isn’t bad, actually kind of nice, but no sports betting. If you can’t sleep or need something to do, go to Rivers casino. It should be a 3 min Uber ride from where you are staying.

    You’re welcome. At this time of year, all teams are banged up to some degree.

    I think it is a mistake to not look at any. Edelman should get peppered with targets. Michel could get multiple tds. Not saying both will happen together but it could and one should happen

    Really curious on Edelman. They needed the Dolphins game and his line was 3/7/25/0. One hit and I think he’s out of the game.

    They lost what I think was an all-pro O-line guy last week so that means something every time. They also have lost all their starting WR’s and probably an all-pro TE. That also means a real lot every time. To offset all of this, they beat the other 3 teams in the worse division in football 4x ina row in competitive games to finish the season on a high note and give some people more confidence in them than they should probably have. If DAL had any heart or Dak didn’t have a boo boo, they probably lose that one. If the Giants or WASH were not bottom 3 pass D’s, their lack of weapons would have been exposed. Can you imagine what the public perception would be if they played a few top 5 or 10 D’s down the stretch instead of bottom 5 D’s? Sea is probably closer to the middle than anything else.

    Philly always shows up in these spots but RUSS always does too unless his OC decides to lose the game for him. I think it will be competitive and it wouldn’t shock me if Philly won but I’m betting on SEA. The complete and utter lack of talent at WR and the secondary is just too much to overcome. Last year the secondary played well down the stretch but I think all the attention given to the offensive injuries has made people forget about how bad their secondary is. Give me 20-30MPH winds and I’d consider changing my mind. Even if Russ is under a lot of pressure, he’s mobile, and they can move the pocket and do other things to give him time to tear apart that secondary.

    I think he had 1 catch until late in that game too. If he was healthy, he would be a lock button but he isn’t. I rewatched that MIA game and then went back and watched the BUF/NE game to try figure out how BUF didn’t beat them too. To save others time, the more you watch NE games, the more you want to bet against them. NE is a below-average team in most places with an elite secondary and special teams. I think there is still some residue (carryover effect) from their early-season defensive domination of some bad teams with awful QB’s.

    If NE doesn’t create a lot of TO’s or score on trick plays or on D or special teams, they should lose this game. TEN’s bad secondary can cover NE’s WR’s because MIA’s could. Brady doesn’t handle pressure well at all and even when he does have time, he’s just patting the ball waiting for anyone to get seperation. NE’s run game isn’t anything special and TEN’s run D is. After watching everyting I decided that Henry is probably worth being a litlle over the field on because there is a decent chance he gets 30 touches in a game TEN wins. I’m hoping NE jumps out ahead so I can live bet the crap out of TEN. At worse, NE wins this game by 1 score.

    Zero mention of Seattle, a running team all year, losing their 2 best running backs in this entire breakdown???

    You are probably correct.

    He didn’t mention that because you can’t run on philly so I think it almost helps them to be missing their starting RB because now the coach is less likely to be stubborn trying to run the ball and instead he’ll let Russ loose and have Lockett and Metcalf tear that secondary apart

    No I think that meat head will still try to pound Lynch like it’s 2015.

    I’d only go just to see the sports book and if I could place a bet – I’ll probably just crash as we get in around 10pm and fly back out at 10am and I doubt my wife will want me dragging her to a casino and she’s know better than to let me go alone saying “I’ll be back in an hour” 😂

    They ran on Philly last time which is normally hard to do, I don’t think even with a healthy backfield they would be able to do it again with anywhere near the same level of success. Russ has to win this one Vs a bad secondary. That’s why I said the OC could lose this game for them like he did last year Vs dallas in this same spot. If they would have let Russ be Russ last year, they would have beaten DAL and advanced. Feels like they won’t make that mistake again but I hate Carrol. Russ should be able to get chunk plays and Philly is going to have to earn it with basically a new cast of characters. This is also Wentz’s first playoff game and everyone hated him before he lit up a bunch of scrub secondaries.

    No. Dunzor is right. I didn’t see his message before I posted. I think it makes sense to go over the field on this game in general. Should be a lot of PA’s for both teams and that’s half the battle.

    For the record, I am still concerned that they try to pound Beast mode like it’s 2015 but I don’t think it’s the most likely scenario.

    That’s the first time I’ve heard you talk about a wife. I always thought you went to Mexico to see a buddy. Yes, wives do not buy the I’ll be back in an hour from the casino line.

    SEA QB> Philly QB, SEA team> Philly team. Take away the injuries and I’d think Philly was better. SEA almost beat SF on Sunday, Philly would have literally no chance of doing something like that. Good coach, lots of heart. For sure. The overall talent has taken a major hit (s).
