NFL opens its season Thursday night
The guy is an unprecedented winner, but does he cover, too?
Not lately, at least not on opening night.
Tom Brady’s teams are an impressive 14-4 straight-up when he starts the opener. It’s an amazing run considering his first start in a Week 1 was in 2002 when Kordell Stewart was the Steelers quarterback and Ben Roethlisberger was a sophomore in college.
He’s won more Super Bowls than any other player has even played in and, at 44, told the Tampa Bay Times, “I can still throw the ball like I’m 24.”
But against the spread, Tom has been closer to human.
Brady lost his first opener as a Buccaneer last season to the Saints, and is 2-4-1 against the spread in Week 1 since 2013.
Tampa Bay hosts Dallas on Thursday evening (8:20 p.m ET). They opened at -6 back in May and were at -8 as of Wednesday afternoon. The difference between having an NFL favorite at -6 instead of -8 (or more) is gigantic since the two most frequent winning margins are 3 and 7.
But the Bucs return all 22 starters and have most of their coaches back, too. They’ll get a Dallas team which will have Dak Prescott back under center for the first time in 11 months.
Brady might feel like a youngster, but can he keep his team focused enough to cover more than a touchdown?
“I’m no doctor but I know this, he looks like a 25-year-old out there bouncing around,” Tampa Bay quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen told the Times. “He’s enjoying himself. You can tell he’s comfortable and he feels good. He’s really had a nice, nice camp and it really is amazing for all of us who have watched him for so many years.”
Thursday’s pick: Staying away from the spread with no idea how rusty Prescott will be. Like over 54.5 rushing yards for Ezekiel Elliott. Odds are around -105 – Download the Sports Betting App and get $500 in Free Wagers for the NFL openers!
Along those lines, a bettor at DraftKings put up $75,000 on Ezekiel Elliott scoring a touchdown Thursday night. At odds of -115, it would pay out $65,220. Those odds had moved to -120. You get these with a free $500 at the Sports Betting App.
The Browns are 0-15-1 in their last 16 openers, in what is easily the longest winless streak in opening weeks in league history. Cleveland is 4-12 against the spread during the span, including a pair of blowout losses to Baltimore and Tennessee the last two seasons.
Cleveland is at Kansas City, which has won six openers in a row, covering four. The host Chiefs are 6-point favorites against the Browns.
Hurricane Ida chased the Saints from New Orleans to the Dallas area on Aug. 28, and forced Sunday’s Week 1 home game against Green Bay to be moved to Jacksonville. That’s a grind to be staying in a hotel that long no matter what coach Sean Payton says. “You’re actually bringing a team a little closer together and it happens to come right at the start of the season,” he said. “I don’t think it’s something I look at in a negative light.”
Among some hefty liabilities being held by BetMGM are $30,000 on the Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl and $25,000 at 8-1. The first ticket pays $210,000, the second would be worth $200k. There’s a Green Bay wager of $19,000 at 14-1 (worth $266,000) and 10 grand on the Patriots at 30-1. With a rookie quarterback, those odds should be longer.
U.S. television partners CBS, Fox, ESPN and NBC will be allowed to show six sports-betting commercials per game according to their agreement with the NFL. One each pregame and postgame, and one during each quarter — which leaves out overtime. The NFL is the last of the four major leagues to embrace sports betting, and they’re doing so at their own pace.
He said it
Nobody was better when sports betting was taboo at subtly mentioning the point spread than Al Michaels. The Patriots would be beating the Jets 31-7 with 32 seconds left and Michaels would mention that “this game is far from over,” a nod to an over/under that may have been 44.5.
“I’ve always had fun by being the guy who could play a little bit of the rascal role because the perception of the fan was that the league didn’t want any references to gambling,” Michaels told the Associated Press. “So what I would do through the years is I would come in the back door, sometimes I would come in the side door, and now I guess they’re allowing me to come in the front door, which is not as much fun as doing it subtly.”
Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Michele Tafoya will call Thursday’s Cowboys-Buccaneers game for NBC.
This & That
It’s things like this that keep alcohol sales brisk among fantasy players. Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena, who’s been hot since the All-Star break, will be out on paternity leave until at least Saturday. Sigh. Right in the middle of fantasy playoffs. JK. Good luck to Mrs. Arozarena.
No college football tonight, no doubt in deference to the NFL’s season opening. Thursday games resume next week — Ohio at Louisiana (meh) — and at least one will be played each Thursday through Thanksgiving.
Big 12 doormat Kansas is 25-point underdogs playing at Coastal Carolina on Friday. Can’t remember a power-5 team that was more than three-touchdown ‘dogs to a non-power-5 school.

More like Leah just set the Internet on fire by sharing a photo of herself messing around with a mystery man via her official Instagram page.
We hope you have a fire extinguisher handy upon checking out the picture below -- because it's straight up scalding, folks, as well as pretty darn revealing...
Messer didn’t provide much context to the snapshot, simply captioning it with lock-and-key and heart emojis.
She didn't include the name of the stud muffin kissing her on the cheek.
She didn't officially refer to him as her boyfriend.
She didn't really say anything at all, likely because she was mesmerized by the size of the biceps wrapped around her torso. We mean, look at those muscles!
Messer had been linked as recently as last month to some guy named Justin Burke, with some outlets reporting he'd actually appear on the next season of Teen Mom 2.
Alas, the man romantically mauling Messer in this new image is clearly not Burke.
We don't know his name, although The Shade Room claims to have discovered another photograph of him on social media.
Go ahead and drool, ladies. We won't stop you.
As for the reaction around the World Wide Web to Leah and her red hot romance?
“LEAH!!!!!! I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!,” a producer at Entertainment Tonight wrote, to which Leah actually replied:
“Thank you so much! I’m pretty sure you told me this was going to happen in our last interview!”
Added Kailyn Lowry, Leah's close friend and MTV co-star: “YES LEAHHHH!!!”
Leah shares her twin 11-year old daughters, Aleeah and Ali, with Corey Simms, who she parted ways with back in 2011... while she shares eight-year old Adalynn with deadbeat ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.
“Jeremy and I’s communication has slimmed to where I think it should be, as far as my boundaries being respected and nothing further," Leah said on a podcast this summer.
The exes never, ever talk. Unless they need to as parents of a little girl.
Earlier this year, meanwhile, Messer claimed her kids are ready to see her with a new man.
"You do need to go on a date soon, you need to actually find someone nice," Aleeah told her parent on a Teen Mom 2 episode in July.
Leah didn't really argue, but later said in a confessional:
"I want to be physically, mentally 100% before I add anyone else to me life."
UPDATE: Our friends at The Ashley claim Leah's boyfriend is named Jaylan Mobley.
He's 25, he's from Charlotte and he accompanied Leah and Kailyn to Costa Rica in August, the same website reports.
This is even a photo of Jaylan Mobley from that trip, as he's standing alongsde Royer Rodriguez, Leah's sisterr's baby daddy and fiance:
On air, Leah added at the time that she hopes she show her three girls an "example of a healthy relationship" so they "can hopefully to do it differently than what I did," which was an indirect shot at Jeremy.
Could the flame with her former spouse ever be rekindled, though?
"This will NEVER happen!" Leah told a follower who recently asked if she'd get back together with Calvert.
"We all get along very well and put our daughter's best interest first," she added of Jeremy and also ex Corey Simms, concluding about two months ago:
"I prefer to keep it that way. I will always wish them the best in life."
We have no idea what Jeremy and Corey think of Messer and this very sexy social media update.
They have not yet commented on the photo at the outset of this article.
But we're just gonna go ahead and reiterate the general sentiment surrounding the image, which basically goes as follows:
Welcome to Plathville?
More like... Welcome to Rebellious Road!
When it comes to Moriah Plath, that is.
The teenage daughter of Kim and Barry Plath -- who stars on the aforementioned TLC series and who has moved away from her VERY controlling parents and into her own home -- just showed off a new, loud and assertive fashion statement.
As you can tell above and below, it centers on Moriah's head.
Indeed, the reality star now has purple hair.
"Wild, crazy and free," Plath captioned the images, adding a couple colored heart emojis.
In the same snaphots, Moriah rocks some dark eye shadow and has painted her lips bright red, accessorizing her fresh and unique look as only she can.
Moriah stars alongside her loved ones on Welcome to Plathville, but she broke away from her mother and father years ago.
Kim and Barry raised their kids with limited technology, a ban on sugar... and on a pretty isolated farm under a pretty strict fundamentalist Christian lifestyle and belief system.
It may have worked for some of their children.
But it didn't work for Moriah, who now lives with her brother in a rented Cairo, Georgia home.
Moriah and Micah gave fans a glimpse of their new home on the Season 2 premiere of Welcome to Plathville, while also opening up about her fractured relationship with her parents.
"In the last six months so much has changed," she said on air at the time.
"I moved out of the house slash got kicked out.
"I had got to the point where I was just starving for freedom and didn’t follow the rules my parents had set."
Added Moriah back then:
“My parents were shielding me or protecting me, whatever, from the outside world.
"They tried to control literally everything, what we ate and wore. Jeans or any type of tank top were out of the question. Swim suits were an absolute no.
“I felt like an outsider in the real world. I didn’t feel normal.”
Moriah, meanwhile, remains close with sister-in-law Olivia Plath -- even though the latter doesn't really talk to her mother and father-in-law at all, really.
Could Moriah's brother, Ethan, and his wife, Olivia, ever make up with Kim ndd Barry?
Anything is possible.
Bur Moriah has her doubts. Her extreme doubts.
“Like, [it seems] just so far-fetched to me,” Moriah said this summer about a reconciliation between her brother and parents.
“I’m not saying it’ll never happen, but, and I have a feeling if they got to the point where [they were], like, yeah, ‘We can talk again,’ I have a feeling there would still be some clashing."
Not that Moriah seems to care very much either way.
She's just out there, dyeing her hair and living her best life.
She might deserve it. She might not.
Either way, Erika Jayne has been under siege from haters accusing her of thievery of the highest order.
Her The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills haven't exactly been uniformly supportive, as we have all seen.
Erika feels downright betrayed by Kyle and Dorit ... and there's only one Housewife whom she feels that she can trust.
RadarOnline reports that Erika Jayne has had a rude awakening while watching this season play out on screen.
Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley have been two of her closest friends on the cast.
But that is in the past tense, however, after what Bravo has shown the world.
Erika reportedly feels that the two women have betrayed her friendship and her.
She is only communicating regularly with one of her fellow Housewives.
That castmate, of course, is Lisa Rinna.
According to the report, Erika was fuming as she viewed many of the conversations and comments about her ongoing case.
A lot of it, she knew while she was filming -- because she was there.
But other moments took place when she was not in the room, and she's only now seeing her castmates for how they really feel.
According to The Daily Mail's insider, Erika is "disappointed and shocked" by how things played out.
Specifically, she was crushed by "how Kyle Richards has turned on her."
"And," the source added, Erika "now realizes the warning Lisa Vanderpump gave her about Kyle was true."
"Erika knows that Kyle has two faces both literally and figuratively," the insider commented.
We have of course seen Kyle's confessionals ourselves.
She has raised a lot of questions about the timeline of Erika's divorce amidst the lawsuits against estranged ex Tom Girardi.
Meanwhile, the source shared that Erika "feels the hypocrisy from Dorit is outrageous."
"All you have to do is google her name and see what pops up there," the insider added.
The source suggested: "add her husband's name to the google search, and your jaw will drop."
None of us are any strangers to Paul Kemsley's legal difficulties or their impacts upon Dorit.
There are seemingly some very obvious parallels between Dorit and Erika.
With that in mind, one might have guessed that Dorit would be Erika's first and most outspoken defender.
Instead, the report alleged, Erika believes that Lisa Rinna is her "only true friend on the show."
"The other women say one thing to her face," the insider described, "and something completely different behind her back."
The source added that, in Erika's estimation, "Lisa actually has her back."
It's no secret that Erika has beef with Kyle and Dorit to some degree.
Kathy Hilton's dinner showed some of their true colors to viewers, prompting fans to warn Erika of how her friends really felt.
On social media, Erika promised her supporters: "Don't worry, we'll get to that."
What makes Erika's predicament different from so many others in the franchise is that this is not a personal problem.
Cheating is a personal problem. Being married to a cheater is a personal problem.
Alcoholism is. Lying is. Not being able to control what you blurt out on Instagram is.
Erika's situation is different from Denise Richards' or Luann de Lesseps' or Braunwyn Windham-Burke's or Vicki Gunvalson's or Kelly Dodd's.
This is, to put it bluntly, her "real life" beyond just the matter of her marriage.
Tom's creditors are coming after her, in some cases, accusing her of -- knowingly or unknowingly -- possessing stolen assets.
It's always bad when your friends don't seem to have your back, but this time, it's worse.
Erika is trying to defend her reputation, and having her castmates openly doubt her on screen is not helping.
That said ... none of us know her true thoughts and feelings about her castmates, no matter what any report or insider claims.
I haven’t actually seen the movie The Matrix, because I live in it every single day, but I do know that Keanu Reeves wore a pretty epic black outfit similar to the one Kim Kardashian put on the other night. Kim wore a very skin tight black bodysuit that somehow has a pair of boots attached to it, a trend that used to be laughed at but seems to be making a comeback. She paired her look with a futuristic pair of sunglasses and bedazzled handbag. Swipe through the gallery to see Kim as Neo.
