FRANK’S CUTTING ROOM FLOOR FOR SUNDAY, 9/26:

My “Cutting Room Floor” plays are the situations I considered the closest to being worthy of investment but did not make the “final cut” for my official plays today for subscribers. The last play I cut for Sunday in MLB is with the Boston Red Sox with the money-line versus the New York Yankees listing both starting pitchers Eduardo Rodriguez and Jordan Montgomery. Boston (88-67) has lost the first two games in this series with their 5-3 loss to the Yankees yesterday. The Red Sox have won 32 of their last 46 games after losing the first two games in a series. Boston has also won 4 of their last 5 home games against teams with a winning record. New York (88-67) has lost 7 of their last 8 games after winning the first two games in a series on the road against a divisional rival. The Yankees have also lost 6 of their last 8 games against teams with a winning record. Take Boston with the money-line listing both Rodriguez and Montgomery. Best of luck — Frank.

At 8:20 PM ET on Sunday, we will be playing Over the Total in the game between the Green Bay Packers (495) and the San Francisco 49ers (496). THE SITUATION: Green Bay (1-1) comes off a 35-17 win at home against Detroit as an 11.5-point favorite for Monday Night Football. San Francisco (2-0) remained unbeaten this season after their 17-11 victory at Philadelphia last Sunday as a 3-point favorite.

REASONS TO TAKE OVER THE TOTAL: The Packers found their offensive rhythm in the second half on Monday with three offensive touchdowns. Green Bay has played 4 straight Overs after a straight-up win — and they have played 21 of their last 27 games Over the Total after a win by at least two touchdowns. Now the Packers go back on the road where they have played 4 straight Overs as an underdog. Green Bay has also played a decisive 36 of their last 53 games Over the Total in September. San Francisco has played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after a straight-up win — and they have played 4 straight Overs after a point spread win. The 49ers have also played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after allowing 14 or fewer points. Now after playing their first two games on the road, they return home for the first time this season — and they have played 5 of their last 7 games Over the Total after playing their last two games on the road.

FINAL TAKE: San Francisco has played 7 of their last 10 games Over the Total against teams with a winning record — and the Packers have played 5 straight Overs against teams with a winning record. 10* NFL Sunday Night Discounted O/U Deal with Over the Total in the game between the Green Bay Packers (495) and the San Francisco 49ers (496). Best of luck for us — Frank.

FRANK’S CUTTING ROOM FLOOR FOR SUNDAY, 9/26:

My “Cutting Room Floor” plays are the situations I considered the closest to being worthy of investment but did not make the “final cut” for my official plays today for subscribers. The last play I cut for Sunday was with Over the Total in the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams. Tampa Bay (2-0) is undefeated this season after their 48-25 win against Atlanta last week. The Buccaneers have played 7 straight Overs after a win by two or more touchdowns. Tampa Bay hits the road where they have played 26 of their last 36 games Over the Total. Los Angeles (2-0) comes off a 27-24 win at Indianapolis last week with the Total set at 47.5. The Rams have played 4 straight Overs in September. Los Angeles has also played 8 of their last 9 games Over the Total as an underdog. Take the Over. Best of luck — Frank.

At 4:25 PM ET on Sunday, we will be playing the Los Angeles Rams (492) minus the points versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (491). THE SITUATION: Los Angeles (2-0) won their second-straight game to start the season with their 27-24 win at Indianapolis as a 4-point favorite last week. Tampa Bay (2-0) comes off a 48-25 win against Atlanta as a 13.5-point favorite last Sunday.

REASONS TO TAKE THE RAMS PLUS (OR MINUS) THE POINT(S): After Los Angeles demonstrated their potential with Matthew Stafford under center in the first week of the season, they played poorly last week but did enough to beat the Colts. Indianapolis recovered a fumble in the end zone to score a touchdown to keep the game close. The Rams have covered the point spread in 11 of their last 13 games after a point spread loss. Los Angeles did generate 371 yards against the Colts defense — and they have covered the point spread in 8 of their last 11 games after gaining at least 350 yards in their last game. They return home to SoFi Stadium where they have covered the point spread in 5 of their last 7 games. The Los Angeles Rams defense led the NFL by holding their opponents to just 18.5 PPG and 281.9 total YPG — and they led the league by holding their opponent’s to just 4.6 Yards-Per-Play. They are allowing 19.0 PPG so far this season. Tampa Bay has failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after a win by two or more touchdowns. I do worry about the Super Bowl hangover effect for this team. This is a team that already had the most game-to-game variance using the DVOA metric by Football Outsiders. They were up by a 27-24 score against the winless Falcons early in the fourth quarter. They needed Tom Brady heroics with less than two minutes left in the game to rally to defeat the Cowboys at home. Now the Buccaneers play their first game of the season on the road — and with the looming media circus drama upcoming the following week when the team travels to New England in Brady’s first game back in Foxboro against the Patriots. Tampa Bay lost only 30.6 adjusted games to injury last season — the lowest number in the league. But they will be without pass rush special Jason Pierre-Paul to injury and wide receiver Antonio Brown to the COVID list for this showdown.

FINAL TAKE: The Rams are 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 games against NFC opponents — and they have covered the point spread in 6 of their last 8 games against teams with a winning record under McVay. This is a statement game for McVay’s team — but it is just another game to the Super Bowl champions. 10* NFL Tampa Bay-LA Rams’ Fox-TV Special with the Los Angeles Rams (492) minus the points versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (491). Best of luck for us — Frank.

At 8:20 PM ET on Sunday, we will be playing the San Francisco 49ers (496) minus the points versus the Green Bay Packers (495). THE SITUATION: San Francisco (2-0) remained unbeaten this season after their 17-11 victory at Philadelphia last Sunday as a 3-point favorite. Green Bay (1-1) comes off a 35-17 win at home against Detroit as an 11.5-point favorite for Monday Night Football.

REASONS TO TAKE THE 49ERS MINUS THE POINTS: The 49ers are dealing with injuries which is situation normal for head coach Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco had 161.6 adjusted games lost to injury last season — and that is before looking at lost time because of COVID — which was the most games lost since the Chicago Bears in 2017. Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have done a great job in establishing depth and developing a next-man up mentality. The 49ers have covered the point spread in 19 of their last 29 games when favored under Shanahan’s leadership. While San Francisco led the NFL with 32 players in Injured Reserve last season, it was the loss of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo that was the biggest loss. Much was made of the Niners selected quarterbacks Trey Lance as the third pick in the NFL, that pick said more about Garoppolo’s propensity to get injured than it did about his talent. Garoppolo led this team to a Super Bowl — and he is healthy right now. Lance offers the team a threat with his legs under center. After not playing much last week, don’t be surprised if Shanahan rope-a-doped the Packers’ coaching staff and will have some special Lance packages for this showdown. The 49ers have been hit hard with injuries at running back — but this is the position on the field most resilient to injuries. Ohio State rookie Trey Sermon oozes with talent after being picked in the third round — and Shanahan has claimed he has looked great in practice this week. The running game is predicated on the offensive line — and this unit is heathy and clicking for the Niners. San Francisco has allowed only one sack so far this season. The 49ers will be playing with revenge from their 34-17 loss at home to Green Bay last year — but that game was played on November 5th when the team was already decimated with injuries. San Francisco not only swept the Packers in their two meetings at Levi’s Stadium in the 2019-20 season, they overwhelmed them by a 74-28 scoring edge. The 49ers controlled the line of scrimmage in both games — and they rushed for 285 yards on 42 carries in the NFC Championship Game that year. Green Bay is soft — they struggle against physical teams. Their best chance of fighting back has been their good offensive line — but injuries and free agent defections leaves them without their three best lineman from the 2019-20 team that got embarrassed. ,b>All-Pro center Corey Linsley was allowed to sign with the Chargers. All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari is still recovering from the torn ACL he suffered on December 31st. And now their emerging stud at left guard (playing left tackle for Bakhtiari), Elgton Jenkins, is out with an ankle which leaves them relying on Yosh Nijman on the left side. I think the Aaron Rodgers drama is a distraction that is eroding the chemistry and morale of this team — but do not underestimate the simple loss of talent on the offensive line for this team. Here comes Nick Bosa and three other former first round picks on the offensive line. In Rodgers’ last four games against the Niners since October 2018, he has been sacked 12 times while losing four fumbles. The Packers were losing at halftime against Detroit on Monday before the Lions’ failed fourth down within field goal range changed the momentum of that game. Green Bay’s defense has surrendered 17 points in the first half in each of their first two games — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 11 of their last 17 games after giving up 17 or more first half points in two straight contests. The Packers’ defense has registered only one sack this season. Cornerback Kenny King has become a liability after getting burned at the end of the first half against Tampa Bay in last year’s NFC Championship Game. Green Bay is also missing their second-best defensive player (to cornerback Jaire Alexander) in linebacker Za’Darius Smith who is on IR with a back injury. Former Michigan first-round draft pick Rashan Gary has disappointed in his development as a pass rusher. Now Green Bay goes back on the road where they have failed to cover the point spread in in 7 of their last 10 road games against teams with a winning record at home.

FINAL TAKE: The weight of losing two straight NFC Conference Championship Games seems to be too much for the Packers. General manager Brian Gutenkunst poured gasoline on this situation by wasting a precious first round draft pick (and the traded draft picks) for quarterback Jordan Love. Head coach Matt LaFleur demonstrated a lack of confidence in Rodgers by electing to kick a field goal down 8 points late in the NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay despite being inside the 10-yard line. And now after the team claimed to “not ready to play” in San Francisco in the 2020 NFC Championship Game, this group is going to rally with all this going on — on a short week? I don’t think so. San Francisco has covered the point spread in 9 of their last 13 games when listed in the +/- 3-point range. 25* NFC Game of the Month with the  San Francisco 49ers (496) minus the points versus the Green Bay Packers (495). Best of luck for us — Frank.

At 4:05 PM ET on Sunday, we will be playing the Miami Dolphins (487) plus the points versus the Las Vegas Raiders (488). THE SITUATION: Miami (1-1) looks to pick themselves off the mat after a 35-0 loss at home to Buffalo as a 3.5-point underdog last Sunday. Las Vegas (2-0) pulled off their second-straight upset victory in their 26-17 upset win at Pittsburgh as a 5.5-point underdog last week.

REASONS TO TAKE THE DOLPHINS PLUS THE POINTS: This is a situation too good to pass up despite some injury and offensive line concerns. I am trusting the process — and the wisdom of the point spread — in this one. The Dolphins were completely flat last week in their divisional loss to the Bills. They may have been suffering the hangover of returning from New England where they just beat the Patriots. The early injury to Tua Tagovailoa did not help matters. But Miami ran into a buzzsaw that was an angry Bills team coming off an upset loss to Pittsburgh. There is nothing like an NFL team getting shut out that will generate attentive minds in practice the next week. In Brian Flores, I Trust in righting the Dolphins’ ship this week. Miami has covered the point spread in 6 straight games after a straight-up loss — and they have covered the point spread in 18 of their last 26 games after a loss by 14 or more points. The Dolphins have also covered the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games after a point spread loss. And in their last 11 games after surrendering at least 30 points, Miami has covered the point spread 10 times. The Dolphins have a good defense that was tied for fifth in the league by allowing 21.1 PPG last season. Miami led the NFL in third-down defense, three-and-outs, and yards allowed per drive, and takeaways last season. They were also fourth in the league in Red Zone points allowed. They held the Bills to just 314 yards last week despite the 35 points. After gaining only 214 total yards, the Dolphins need to reconfigure their offense. Flores has overseen the reshuffling of their offensive line. Getting wide receiver Will Fuller into the mix after the former Houston Texan missed the opening two games help — he is a speedster who had eight touchdowns in eleven games last year. Fuller alongside rookie Jaylen Waddle could be a game-changer for this offense. Jacoby Brissett completed only 24 of 40 passes for 169 yards in relief last week — but the veteran is one of the better backups in the league with 32 career starts. He has tossed 31 career touchdown passes to just 14 interceptions — and he adds a threat with his legs. Miami has covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after failing to gain at least 250 yards in their last game. The Dolphins have also covered the point spread in 5 straight road games with the Total set at 42.5 to 45 — and they have covered the point spread in 4 straight road games as an underdog. Miami has also covered the point spread in 5 of their last 7 games against teams with a winning record. Las Vegas may be due for an emotional letdown after pulling off two straight upset victories. We had the Raiders in their home opener with fans finally in Allegiant Stadium in their Monday night upset win against Baltimore. And while most of the world faded Las Vegas last week at Pittsburgh, we successfully avoided that trap (the Steelers' side of that situation was unappealing). Now the Raiders return home triumphant heroes — but they have failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 7 games after two straight upset wins. Las Vegas has not been a reliable favorite under head coach Jon Gruden. They have failed to cover the point spread in 7 of their last 10 games when favored — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 4 straight games when laying 3.5 to 9.5 points. They will likely be without starting running back Josh Jacobs and right guard Richie Incognito. Missing Jacobs will put more pressure on Derek Carr.  the Raiders only rushed for 52 yards last week — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after failing to rush for at least 90 yards in their last game. And while Carr has passed for at least 373 yards in his first two games, Las Vegas has failed to cover the point spread in 11 of their last 13 games after passing for at least 300 yards in two straight games. The Raiders’ defense has played better (the August acquisitions of linebackers K.J. Wright and Denzel Perryman was massive for this team to overcome general manager Mike Mayock’s whiffs in the draft) — but I am not sold that this is an elite unit quite yet. Baltimore gained 406 yards against them before Ben Roethlisberger passed for 292 yards last week.

FINAL TAKE: Miami has covered the point spread in 6 of their last 7 games as an underdog — and they are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games against the Raiders. 25* NFL Underdog of the Month with the Miami Dolphins (487) plus the points versus the Las Vegas Raiders (488). Best of luck for us — Frank.
