Liz Bhandari (NFLGirlUK) is back and has two games in her eyesight that could be worth a bet or two – The divisional rivalry between Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers, and of course, Brady vs Belichick. Let’s get straight to it…
Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers
Now this is going to be a heated affair. The Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers have always ended up having intense rivalry games that wind up coming down to the wire every time. Both squads suffered close losses last week and are hoping to bounce back here.
There are a couple of good bets to make in this game but one that I would play close attention to is Russell Wilson. He seems to be the most consistent player on this offense and despite a rough game last week, he should be raring to go again. He may not have 400 plus passing yards, but I do see him throwing two or more touchdowns if they want to keep this game close. Their run game is good behind Chris Carson, but it isn’t good enough to win a game on its own against a great 49ers defensive line.
I could also throw a bet towards the San Francisco offense despite their inconsistency. This team is going to want to run the football and run it effectively. This is a run-oriented football team after all. I would bet that they hand the ball off around 20 times and rush for at least 100 total yards. They are missing some key players in the backfield due to injury, but Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t going to win this game with his arm, otherwise Trey Lance could end up being in this game at some point. Maybe a Lance appearance could take this game to another level, something that would be hard to do considering the hype surrounding this game already.
Russell Wilson to throw over 2 touchdowns – 6/5
Chris Carson over 64 total rushing yards – 17/20
Chris Carson over 0.5 total rushing tds – 13/10

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New England Patriots
I know for a fact that Tom Brady is looking to make a statement. He knows that everybody is going to be tuning into this matchup to see how he fares against his former team in his former stadium. Brady is not only going to want to show off to the fans that he can dominate his old friends but will also have a chip on his shoulder due to losing his last game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Betting that Brady will throw for over 300 yards is honestly a great choice. They had running problems last weekend and I am not sure that Brady is looking to just turn around and hand the football off. This game is personal to him and knowing the type of person he is, he won’t want to lose.
Another bet that seems enticing is Mac Jones having a bounce back performance. He threw three interceptions and was pressured constantly last week against the New Orleans Saints. But a lot of his receivers kept dropping easy passes that won’t happen again.
Maybe if the Buccaneers blow this game open, Jones could end up stuffing the stat sheet and have over 200 passing yards. This is going to be a very fun matchup all around even if it ends up being one sided!
Mac Jones over over 259.5 total passing yards – 17/20
Tom Brady over 306.5 total passing yards – 5/6
Brady over over 1.5 total passing touchdowns – 20/23
