On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the Los Angeles Rams' Thursday Night Football victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson had to leave the game early with a finger injury, and if Russ is forced to sit out for any amount of time, the Seahawks' season is essentially over. Sticking in Seattle, is it officially time to declare the Jamal Adams trade a win for the New York Jets? Adams hasn't been able to cover for years, and now that he's no longer rushing the passer, he's just another guy in the defensive backfield. The Adams trade has been a total disaster for Seattle. Meanwhile, in the winning locker room, Matthew Stafford continues to put up big numbers in his first season in Los Angeles. Some detractors have pointed out that his actual on-field play hasn't always matched up with the gaudy stats, but do you know which other quarterback got off to an uneven start with his new team? Tom Brady with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. Just sayin'. Later, FanDuel Director of Trading John Sheeran swings by to discuss how and why FanDuel odds differ from other shops, why sharps are so high on the Arizona Cardinals heading into this week's showdown with the San Francisco 49ers, why the Urban Meyer soap opera doesn't really impact the line at all for the Jacksonville Jaguars, why he thinks Baker Mayfield is a very average quarterback - with or without the shoulder injury, why he actually wants bettors to beat him every now and then, how the public can actually find value betting on bad teams, who he likes in this Sunday's primetime matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills, and much more! Finally, Jason closes the show with the football weekend edition of the Best Bet.
