Brandon Anderson's Picks

Futures
Trey Lance+5000
2023-24 NFL MVP
0.5u
NFC wide open, only 1 of the top 8-10 QBs in the NFC and this is the likely starting QB for a possible 1 seed at a wild bargain. Could he be next year's Jalen Hurts? SF is loaded with weapons and blocking, and Shanahan turns every QB into gold. Add in Lance's rushing threat on top of the passing and he could explode with defenses focusing on CMC, Deebo, Kittle, Aiyuk. Major discount on odds because of the SF QB situation. These odds will be cut in half or shorter by Opening Day if he's starting.

Bijan Robinson+450
2023 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
2u
He's the fav, but should be way shorter. ROY goes to a top 12 pick (15 of last 19), it's opportunity and teams feeding the high pick Atlanta turns dudes off the street into 5 YPC backs. Arthur Smith will make Bijan how new Derrick Henry and feed him 300+ touches. Could be an immediate monster, like contend for rushing title type upside. Far and away ROY favorite. Ludicrous number. Multi unit play. DK 4/27

Indiana Pacers o35.5-110
2023-24 NBA Regular Season - Total Wins
3u
Buckets 7/19 Simply have to beat last year to top this. Haliburton played 56g at all NBA level, and love the Brown Obi Jarace additions. Clearly a postseason team at worst and I think they get into the 40s. Playing now before a possible Siakam trade ruins the number. 3u play, my favorite early win total.

Houston Rockets u32.5-105
2023-24 NBA Regular Season - Total Wins
2u
Buckets 7/19 Running back out annual bet cuz if it ain't broke, don't fix it. FVV Brooks Udoka raise the floor esp on D but this team won 17-20-22 last 3 yrs so is that really ELEVEN wins better? West is just too good. Better? Yes. This much? No. Their pick is owed to OKC top 4 protected once then turns into 2s. So unless they're close enough to contend for play-in, every late loss improves % of that top 4 pick. That's our insurance if this is close.

Toronto Raptors u37.5-105
2023-24 NBA Regular Season - Total Wins
1.5u
Buckets 7/19 Weren't great last year and now losing FVV is massive for a team already bereft of shooting and guard play. Nurse loss to unknown coach could be huge too. Siakam on expiring deal, OG and GTJ too. If it goes poorly early, this could quickly be a full reset race to the bottom blowout trade sale esp cuz they owe a pick to the spurs top 6 protected. Playing now before possible Siakam trade. May add an alt under earlier in case bottom falls out.

Houston Texans+1100
2023 NFL AFC South - To Win
2u
🚨 WORST TO FIRST SZN 🚨 At least one team has gone worst to first in 18 of 20 years. AFC South is bad. Jaguars roster super sus outside of Lawrence, Titans/Colts look blah. Texans added a ton of floor raisers, including a great new coaching staff. Houston might have the best offensive line, defense, and special teams in the division. Stroud is setup to succeed and Houston has a super soft schedule. Jags are vulnerable. I make the Texans outright division favorites. Multi unit play. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/nfl-2023-worst-to-first-candidates?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Atlanta Falcons+220
2023 NFL NFC South - To Win
1u
At least one team has gone worst to first in 18 of 20 seasons. Falcons have the best offense in the division with three stud play makers and a great line. Defense added a heap of veteran floor raisers and good new staff. Very soft starting schedule too. Atlanta is my favorite in a bad division, but odds here don’t leave a huge edge unfortunately. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/nfl-2023-worst-to-first-candidates?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Will Anderson Jr.+500
2023 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year
3u
🚨 Favorite preseason awards bet!! 🚨 DROY goes to favs, guys at the top of the draft. 19/23 this century top 15 picks. Usually pass rusher. Anderson best defender in weak class, unleashed by DeMeco, checks every box. Multi unit play. Number should be half this. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/2023-nfl-defensive-rookie-of-the-year-odds-picks-bet-will-anderson-jr?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Tyreek Hill+2000
2023 NFL Offensive Player of the Year
0.5u
Tread lightly on OPOY entering season, but playing my article WR trend. Tyreek probably would've won last year til late Fins injuries. 7+ catches x10, 100+ yes x7, 160+ x4. Led lg yards per route run by huge margin. Just a monster for McDaniel. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/2023-nfl-offensive-player-of-the-year-odds-picks-bets-on-tyreek-hill-chris-olave?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Huge breakout potential. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/2023-nfl-offensive-player-of-the-year-odds-picks-bets-on-tyreek-hill-chris-olave?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

DROY sleeper for what used to be a LB award. 268 tackles, 3 sack, 5 INT last 2 yrs, day 1 ILB starter after great preseason. My #2 pick behind Will. Big 10 has won 5/7 DROY.

Fav OROY sleeper for only position that wins outside first rd. Powerful runner, good pass catcher, 27 TDs last 2 sn. Run centric team and Walker groin issue could linger.

Tua Tagovailoa+2000
2023 NFL Comeback Player of the Year

Absolutely do NOT bet Damar Hamlin at absurdly short preseason odds. His presence may buy value in this award. I like the distant second favorite Tua if he stays concussion free. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/2023-nfl-comeback-player-of-the-year-odds-picks-bet-damar-hamlin?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Dak Prescott+2500
2023 NFL MVP

Number is just all wrong for the QB of America's team on my most likely 1 seed in a bad NFC. MVP is a team award. Dallas elite D, top 2 QB in nfc, good healthy line #2 epa last yr outside the fluke TOs, YPA & TD% in range.

2023 NFL MVP
0.25u
Betting outlier extremes on SF. Either Purdy is legit and they can be as good as anyone or the season could go totally sideways, Shanahan 6-10 or worse in 3/6 seasons. Purdy 2+ TDs all 6 games reg sn. 14/15 MVP top 2 in EPA, and shanny QB always elite epa. Obvious narrative for Mr Irrelevant back from injury leading 1 seed as the new Brady. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/2023-nfl-mvp-odds-picks-bet-dak-prescott-brock-purdy?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=brandonanderson

Detroit Lions (No)+150
2023 NFL To Make The Playoffs
1u
NFL exotics pod My slight div fav but only about 33%, and if they don't win a bad division, wildcard chances low. Terrible D limits upside. Implied 40% miss, probably more like 50/50 and odds will likely drop immediately with week 1 L in KC.

New York Jets (No)+120
2023 NFL To Make The Playoffs

NFL exotics pod Jets thin at WR and bad OL, D great but still may be worst in division AFC is just loaded + brutal schedule esp first 6g. I have Jets right at .500, which is my AFC 10 seed. Implied 55% to make, I have it barely half that. We'll have chances to hedge at +EV later if needed. Multi unit.

Vikes were a .500 at best team a year ago that got worse and started 0-2. FTN says 10.2% playoffs vs 29% implied here. Tough schedule, outmatched D, and Kirk + 0-2 too much. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/which-0-2-nfl-teams-have-best-playoff-odds-bengals-already-buried

Whether it's injured Burrow or his backup, 0-2 division start will doom Bengals w the brutal back half schedule. Played them to miss playoffs +275 before the season, doubling down at -110. Schatz has them at 8.0 wins and 28% playoffs. https://www.actionnetwork.com/nfl/which-0-2-nfl-teams-have-best-playoff-odds-bengals-already-buried

Looks like a Wr award now. Career day wk3 and will be a target monster now with Mike Williams out. If he stays healthy, projects to have a real chance to break the receptions record at 150+. Still a long shot but number is too long for such a good Wr in a v good offense, adding to portfolio. Shouts to @UncutGambitGems for the idea. Number is moving with Williams news. Best at bet365 or Rivers.

Will Anderson Jr.+1500
2023 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year
1u
10/2 adding to Will with this huge Witherspoon game doubling his number, silly overreaction. Anderson has been as great as expected and Texans are getting healthy and getting attn. He still fits the profile best as the top defender taken and an edge rusher who should get sacks, already has one and a blocked kick, PFF grades good, etc. Jalen Carter looks awesome too but Will is too good and this is way too early to be this long a price. Literally was +700 two hours ago. Silly.

Jrue Holiday+7500
2023-24 NBA 6th Man of the Year
1u
Real talk of Jrue coming off bench. If he does that, he's instantly top five for 6MOY and maybe #1. Celtics lack depth so he'll play heavy minutes, score plenty, and close games, and every person on the planet loves him. Only up at a couple books as of 10/14. This drops to +1000 if he's confirmed off bench. Is there a 15% chance he does? Worth finding out.

Summary

Brandon covers all things NBA and NFL, specializing in NBA props and making ATS picks for every NFL game.

He appears on five weekly podcasts, covering NBA at Buckets, NFL at The Action Network Podcast, and fantasy football at Fantasy Flex.

Nobody loves a future long shot like Brandon, who has an incredible ability to spot a 150-1 long shot who drops all the way to 7-1 before losing with immense CLV and pride.

Experience

Brandon is an NBA and NFL staff writer for Action Network. He's been betting on something sports related for pretty much his entire life and writing fantasy football columns, weekly NFL picks articles, and futures awards long shots picks over the past couple decades. Brandon worked as a freelance writer over the past decade with featured work at Sports Illustrated's The Cauldron, Sports Pickle, Grandstand Central, Pivot Analysis, BetMGM Sports, and elsewhere. He's covered NFL, NBA, MLB, college hoops and football, fantasy sports, NFL and NBA Draft, Olympics, soccer, and just about any other sport he can get his hands on. Brandon has written and contributed on over 1000 pieces at Action Network with an app ROI over 15%. His published props last season finished over 20% for NBA regular season, 22% in NBA playoffs, and 17% in March Madness.

Education

Brandon studied Bible and Math at Wheaton College (IL) and got his masters in Biblical Exegesis there. When he wasn't studying, he spent most of his time working at the school's Phonathon, where he called alumni and parents and asked for financial gifts for the school. He went on to run the Phonathon program for a decade and then spent half a decade consulting in the fundraising and development world on Phonathons, grant research, writing, and data analysis. What are you talking about -- working at Action Network is a perfectly natural progression!

Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Every time I spot a wild long shot futures bet and pre-tell the narrative on how that player will make a run at the award and then slowly watch the odds fall from 150-1 to 75-1 to 25-1 to 5-1 as the national media finally has the conversation. Think Joe Ingles 6MOY.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Every time that wild long shot futures bet ends up losing anyway even at immense value after making an incredible run, making me feel both genius and idiotic simultaneously. Think Jordan Clarkson 6MOY.
