Before Andrew Luck announced his shocking retirement from the game of football, Bears Over Beers recorded a betting podcast to preview the NFL season - and some of those bets are looking mighty good right now.

Jeff and EJ are joined by the resident gambling guru Sam Householder as the guys share a few laughs and work through a hefty slate of picks. While there was universal agreements on bets like the Bears and Seahawks, the guys diverged opinions on several bets - including Sam’s final bold choice.

Here’s how the draft shook out:

Sam: Division Winners - Seahawks (+285), Texans (+285), Saints (-180); Overs - Chiefs (10.5), Eagles (10.5), Dolphins (4.5); Unders - Raiders (6), Lions (7), Bills (7.5); SB - Bears +1600

Jeff: Division Winners - Bears (+180), Panthers (+550), Ravens (+350); Overs - Bears (9), Panthers (8), Texans (8); Unders - Packers (9), Rams (10), Giants (6); SB - Panthers +5000

EJ: Division Winners - Browns (+120), Eagles (+110), Patriots (-500); Overs - Cardinals (5.5), Bills (8), Ravens (8); Unders - Chargers (10), Broncos (7), Colts (10); SB - Eagles +1200

We’ll circle back at the end of the year to tally up the winnings. Let us know below who you think had the best draft!
