Ricky's 1* play on Watford.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- Norwich ranks dead last in the Premier League with 25 goals scored.
- Norwich ranks dead last in the Premier League with a goal differential of -36.
- Norwich has failed to score in four of their last five matches.
The verdict: look for Watford to win big.

Two reeling Premier League teams will clash at Vicarage Road on Tuesday as Watford come in winless with three defeats and a draw since the restart while Norwich have four losses. I do like the home team to come through with a win in this one though.
Watford sit just above the relegation zone, one point ahead of Aston Villa and Bournemouth. Norwich are dead last, seven points behind Watford. It will be extremely difficult for Norwich to overtake three teams, and by the look of the players in recent games they've already all but given up on the season.
Watford meanwhile have been battling, but have had the misfortune of facing strong teams lately.
Norwich have lost 12 of their 16 away games on the season, and I think we're getting a more than fair price on Watford at home.

The set-up: The question of whether or not Tom Brady is "washed up" will be answered after the first few weeks of the 2020/21 season and there's no question that TB faces a stiff test right out of the gate by traveling to division rival New Orleans in Week 1. Brady has plenty of weapons to utilize, but team chemistry, especially with what is predicted to be a shortened pre-season, is not something that can be achieved over night.
The pick: Drew Brees may have put a foot in his mouth back in early June, but the veteran QB quickly made amends with his teammates and the media and I think that the entire ordeal he went through will in fact just "add fuel to the fire." Time is running out for both Brees and Brady, but the Saints' pivots numbers remain solid, while TB's have dropped off significantly the last few years. Divisional contests are always the most important for a team and they almost always mean more to the home side. This is one of the most anticipated games of the season and I look for New Orleans to come prepared. I'm laying the points and expecting a rout.

Despite the Panthers having home field advantage, the Raiders are currently slight favorites. While that may have some leaning towards the home underdog, the Raiders are favored for a reason. Carolina has a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a new defensive coordinator and a new starting QB. Under normal circurmstances, that might not be such a bad thing. After all, everyone is surely hungry to get the new era started with a win. However, these circumstances aren't normal. Due to the pandemic, the team hasn't had a chance to get together and that is likely to make adjusting to all the new faces/schemes difficult. Consider Vegas.
Play - Chiefs-Texans UNDER
Edges - The 2020 season debuts with the rematch from last year’s Divisional Round matchup in which the Chiefs blew out the Texans, 51-31, after trailing by 24 points in the second quarter, only to score 41 unanswered points on seven consecutive drives. With defending Super Bowl champions just 1-6-1 UNDER on Thursdays the past five seasons, as well as 3-9-1 UNDER in home openers since 2007, we’ll take advantage of a very popular public line and go UNDER the total in this game. We recommend a 1* play on UNDER the total. Thank you and good luck as always.
