Who To Bet On
BEAST DOME NATION.
It has been a while since we have been together. The Daily Fantasy Basketball Circut is going well as I am hitting a nice stride heading into the Championship Qualifers. With Daily Fantasy Sports, momentum is key. Fantasy Baseball Articles coming out soon.
Before we go into the Preview of the Game. My preseason Predictions had both Denver facing New England in the Playoffs, as well as Seattle and San Francisco. The Final Prediction did end up with Seattle vs. Denver in the SuperBowl.
*PRESEASON PREDICTION WRITTEN IN SEPTEMBER*
DENVER BRONCOS vs. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
The Broncos have enough options to make Peyton Manning effective against the Seahawks tough secondary.
The Seahawks should be able to do whatever they want against this Broncos defense that has not faced a Marshawn Lynch type RB in some time.
While everything is going well with Peyton, it is not well enough as his Fantasy Numbers will not be enough to carry his team. Marshawn racks up over 150 Yards on the Ground, Russell Wilson makes plays with his legs. Montee Ball has a tough time against the Seahawks Defense that came to play.
2013 NFL CHAMPIONS
Russell Wilson/Marshawn Lynch/Percy Harvin/Sidney Rice/Golden Tate. The offense has too many weapons.
Kam Chancellor/Earl Thomas/Brandon Browner/Richard Sherman. There is not a better secondary in the NFL. Nothing close.
SUPER BOWL XLVIII
Seattle vs. Denver
Why Denver Has No Chance
It was Week 15 of the Fantasy Football Season. The Denver Broncos played host to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday Night. Everyone in the world expected Peyton Manning to torch the Chargers as he inches closer to his records. Instead, San Diego played Denver the best way possible.
You Burn Clock. You Burn Clock. You Burn Clock.
The Broncos could not stop Ryan Mathews who went on to rush for 127 Yards/1TD on 29 Carries. Peyton Manning did not play perfect, and when the Broncos fell behind. Ryan Mathews kept pounding them for more yards and burning more clock. The Broncos ended up losing this game 20-27 as the recipe was built on how to Beat Denver.
This style of Football that San Diego played on that Thursday Night.
Seattle takes to a completely Higher level that is unmatched.
6 Reasons Denver Will Lose
1. Denver Does Not Have A Good Run Defense
The reason their team defense looks solid against the Run (#8), is because they are usually blowing out teams who go pass 1st/2nd/3rd in the 2nd Half.
2. Denver never Faced a Marshawn Lynch RB
The difference between Jamaal Charles/LeSean McCoy and Marshawn Lynch. Marshawn can run over your entire team. As long as you are quick, you can tackle Charles and McCoy. Denver’s LB core is built for speed, not Power.
3. Denver never Faced a QB who can take off and run like Russell Wilson
Terrelle Pryor does not count. The Raiders also have little talent on their team. Russell Wilson can run the Spread Offense Playaction QB draw better than any QB in the NFL. I would rather have Kaepernick on a Fantasy Level, Russell Wilson on a reality level.
4. Denver Never Faced A Tough Secondary
Baltimore in Week 1 may be the toughest Secondary Denver faced, and Peyton Manning threw for 7 TDs. Seattle is Baltimore on an Alex Rodriguez amount of Steroids. Hopefully I don’t get sued for that comment.
5. Denver Never Faced A Team As Physical as Seattle
Baltimore may be the most Physical Defense Denver Faced. Peyton and his cupcake schedule was nice this season.
Expect Seattle to hit Peyton Manning often.
To be Physical with all of their WRs off the line of scrimmage messing up Peyton’s timing.
Most importantly, Knowshon Moreno to finally look like Knowshon Moreno.
If it’s cold out. Seattle has a HUGE advantage. If it’s snowing, the game is over. Denver cannot win in a defensive battle, and you know that Peyton will not torch the Seattle Secondary in the Snow.
BEAST OF THE GAME
Marshawn Lynch is a BEAST who cannot be stopped. SF cannot stop him. and no other defense is nearly as good. Denver will get ran over, Lynch will easily have 145 Yards and 2 TDs. If this was a normal week of the Fantasy Football Season, Marshawn Lynch would be a Top Tier Must-Start RB.
If this was a normal week of the Fantasy Football Season for your Denver Players. Outside of Peyton/Demaryius who cannot be benched. It would be best to look at other options.
Game is over by 3rd Quarter.
