I joined Thursday’s Daily Ticket hosted by Jon Jansen on Fox Sports The Gambler to breakdown this week’s edition of my Futures Faceoff series at We discuss the impending quarterback battle between Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles, as well as this Saturday’s UFC card in Vegas.

The Bears and the Falcons are in similar spots with each head coach under pressure to produce results. I take a deep dive into the Falcons’ first half stats and explain why some of the offensive firepower may be overstated. Jansen and I discuss how important an improved rushing attack will be to both offenses. On the defensive side of the ball, we look at the Falcons’ secondary and evaluate whether the front office did enough for Dan Quinn in order to succeed in a new-look NFC South. I evaluate the odds, strength of schedule, and why I am comfortable with only one of these teams getting back to their winning ways.

UFC Vegas 4 features one of the top lightweight contenders in the world with Dustin Poirier taking on Dan “Hangman” Hooker. Poirier is a nice-sized favorite at -225 for good reason. I break down exactly how I see this fight going and reveal the prop bet I am interested in regarding the co-main event as well. There is plenty of opportunity on this weekend’s UFC card.
