This week the lads discuss who could emulate the ’19 49ers and go from worst to first in their division – or even the unthinkable, the 2018 Jags and go from first to worst (Packers, anyone? *Ian prays to Halas*).

* Prop Bets
The bookies weren’t brave enough to offer odds for Rob’s Rivers bet of under 10.5 starts, so Tom offered a tasty 13/2 which Rob and Tony took advantage of with £20 each (that’s real money, it’s in the notes!).
Arguably the best prop bet last week though, was when Tom set the over/ under on the number of fantasy leagues Tony would win… bearing in mind Tony is in 11 leagues, Tom set it at an insulting 0.5… and then took the under! At a tempting 5/1, Rob double the insult by snapping up £20 worth and Tom took him on for £10. Surely Tony can win 1 league out of 11… surely?
If you open an account using our links you’ll be supporting the site and the podcast (maybe we can get Mark that better broadband he clearly needs?) and new players can get the William Hill 2 x £15 free bets for a £10er. Don’t be a divvy though, betting is supposed to be fun, if you can’t laugh about losing what you’ve bet, you’ve bet too much, take it easy, or you’ll end up like us lot!
