Newest Odds:

New Orleans Saints
+3

Early morning London soccer! The factor you by no means missed and but in some way did not understand you needed. The primary worldwide sport is all the time so jarring — it is like when there is a random 11 a.m. ET faculty soccer sport and also you’re fully thrown for a loop. This line is extraordinarily pungent. Minnesota is lower than a three-point favourite towards a Saints staff that wanted a miracle Week 1 rally towards the Falcons to keep away from 0-3 with a foul loss towards Tampa Bay and a VERY unhealthy loss towards the Panthers. This appears like a state of affairs the place Andy Dalton begins and we get Spiderman Meme’d to loss of life with him battling Kirk Cousins in not-quite-primetime. Bizarre feeling the Saints steal one thing right here though the Vikings are the higher total staff. 

The choose: Saints 21, Vikings 17
Props, Greatest Bets: Saints +2.5

Newest Odds:

Baltimore Ravens
+3

If this sport does not flip right into a loopy shootout with considered one of Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen surging to the forefront of the MVP race, it will likely be actually disappointing. The Payments and Ravens have defensive points and are two of essentially the most explosive groups in soccer. Each have been roundly criticized for accuracy and passing abilities coming into the 2018 draft and each have emerged as clear dominant forces. Rashod Batemen and Devin Duvernay are answering questions on Baltimore’s receiving corps. The Payments have some deadly quick-score choices as properly. It is most likely sq. however the over appears like a lock right here. 

The Choose: Ravens 35, Payments 31
Bets: Ravens +3, Over 51

Newest Odds:

Atlanta Falcons
+1

Are the Falcons higher than we thought? This will likely be an fascinating take a look at sport towards a 2-1 Browns staff lingering fairly massive with Deshaun Watson coming again. The Browns are second in rush DVOA on offense and the Falcons are a backside 5 staff in rush protection by DVOA (price noting: normally it is best to attend 4 weeks for adjusted stats on that primarily based on Soccer Outsiders reevaluating preconceived biases). Cleveland’s protection has been missing and it is exhausting to think about Myles Garrett is taking part in this Sunday; it is nice information he is doing properly as he’s. Regardless of the speeding matchup, Atlanta goes to hold on this sport and perhaps discover a technique to steal it.

The Choose: Falcons 24, Browns 21
Bets: Go

Newest Odds:

New York Giants
-3

this 39.5 complete, it is exhausting to inform whether or not or not it is merely these two offenses or the potential for hurricane climate coming in that route. My pondering is the previous. The Bears are an inconceivable 2-1 … however so are the Giants! I’ve heard a number of individuals counsel (shoutout my new buddies from RGA) Daniel Jones performed his finest sport as a professional towards the Cowboys on Monday evening. He was pressured 26 instances on 36 dropbacks, simply an insane quantity. Roquan Smith is on an absolute bender proper now with 27 (!) tackles in his final two weeks. He is the distinction maker right here, as is the Bears floor sport.

The Choose: Bears 17, Giants 14
Bets: Bears

Newest Odds:

Philadelphia Eagles
-6.5

Two of my three favourite groups from 2022 squaring off in a tough sport to choose. The Jaguars are the one staff in the complete NFL with a top-five offense and protection by DVOA. Doug Pederson, a.ok.a. “NUM” a.ok.a. (Not City Meyer) has some massive time Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco 2011 vibes. However I am unsure this week is the max-out spot for the Jags, even in a Doug Pederson Revenge Sport. The Eagles are merely simply excellent, and their protection can lock individuals down late when it is clicking.

The Choose: Eagles 27, Jaguars 17
Bets: Go

Newest Odds:

Detroit Lions
-3.5

The Lions are a enjoyable staff, however there are loads of accidents on offense — D’Andre Swift and Amon Ra St. Brown are out — and the protection is able to letting anybody storm by way of the again door. We might look again at this sport and level to the seventh seed within the NFC. 

The Choose: Lions 27, Seahawks 24
Bets: Go

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET

Newest Odds:

Houston Texans
+5.5

Justin Herbert has to stay a query mark, virtually as massive a query mark as conserving Justin Herbert within the sport when the Chargers have been up not solely three however 4 scores. Brandon Staley is an effective coach, however it appears like he deserted his rules this season and perhaps it has him a bit of shook? There’s zero purpose Herbert ought to have performed as a lot as he did. The Texans are 0-2-1 however have been in each sport they’ve performed. I believe they’re reside for an upset right here courtesy of a giant sport from Damion Pierce.

The Choose: Texans 27, Chargers 24
Bets: Texans +5

Newest Odds:

Pittsburgh Steelers
-3.5

The Steelers will not be good on offense, however the Jets are actually unhealthy on offense. The below right here might be a reasonably good look even when the whole is sub 40. There’s an opportunity this turns into the Kenny Pickett sport, though Mike Tomlin’s appeared fairly set on persevering with to roll with Mitchell Trubisky as his quarterback. I am taking the Steelers however not at all am I assured with it. 

The Choose: Steelers 20, Jets 15
Bets: No bets

Newest Odds:

Indianapolis Colts
-3.5

This an enormous AFC South sport — the winner finally ends up possible getting a bit of little bit of a leg up on the Jaguars, assuming the Eagles handle enterprise. Indy has the higher total roster/staff, I believe. The Titans can get a ton of inside strain with Jeffrey Simmons and that ought to disrupt Matt Ryan sufficient to maintain this division battle shut. 

The Choose: Colts 20, Titans 17
Bets: No bets

Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET

Newest Odds:

Dallas Cowboys
-3

Dallas is a exceptional 2-1 regardless of rolling out Cooper Rush at QB the previous couple of weeks. Washington received stomped by the Eagles final week, however I am unsure they’re as unhealthy as they regarded towards Philly. The Eagles may merely be the very best staff in soccer. The Cowboys protection might be a giant downside pressure-wise right here, however I believe Washington can maintain it shut sufficient with Carson Wentz throwing the ball downfield within the second half. It is also honest to surprise if we would see some adjustment from defenses towards Rush and maybe a correction. 

The Choose: WFT 21, Cowboys 17
Bets: N/A

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET

Newest Odds:

Carolina Panthers
-1

Nasty little plot twist for the Cardinals who discover themselves at 1-2 and an underdog on the street towards a Panthers staff nobody thinks is especially nice. Carolina might be 2-1 fairly simply nevertheless, and the protection is taking part in at a reasonably excessive degree. Kyler Murray and the Cardinals offense is working in an unsustainable trend and towards a Panthers protection with sufficient pace to comprise and chase down Kyler Murray, it is a spot for Matt Rhule to flip a number of the FCF (first coach fired) strain onto Kliff Kingsbury, whose offseason contract extension looms awkwardly in the intervening time.

The Choose: Panthers 20, Cardinals 17
Bets: Go

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET
TV: CBS | Stream: Paramount+ (click on right here)  

Newest Odds:

Las Vegas Raiders
-2.5

The Raiders are an extremely determined staff — the one 0-3 staff within the NFL — on the brink of host the … first place Denver Broncos. Russell Wilson’s struggled badly on deep passes and he and Nathaniel Hackett merely cannot get on the identical web page. Hackett’s in-game resolution making has clearly lacked a sure competence. For that purpose give me the Raiders to discover a technique to win this sport, though it is tough to be assured of their protection. Davante Adams wants a signature efficiency right here.

The Choose: Raiders 31, Broncos 24
Bets: Raiders -3

Newest Odds:

Inexperienced Bay Packers
-9.5

Mac Jones is “each day” in keeping with Invoice Belichick, who had some fascinating media periods this week. There are rumors about him desirous to pressure his method out on the sphere for this sport, however I am unsure it issues when wanting on the handicap right here. Aaron Rodgers on an even bigger stage (key CBS sport on Sunday afternoon) towards Belichick with the Packers offense beginning to get rolling and the protection taking part in excellent soccer. The Patriots merely aren’t excellent proper now and Brian Hoyer vs. an injured Mac will not change that a lot. 

The Choose: Packers 24, Patriots 7
Bets: Go

Newest Odds:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
PK

The Patrick Mahomes Tremendous Bowl Revenge Sport! The Chiefs are favored right here however it might merely be a results of expectation for the sport being moved to a impartial web site. That is not the case, with Tampa away from Hurricane Ian a lot prior to anticipated. Mike Evans is again, Tom Brady is in primetime at house and the Bucs protection ought to nonetheless have the ability to give Mahomes some matches. 

The Choose: Buccaneers 28, Chiefs 27
Bets: Buccaneers 

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET

Newest Odds:

San Francisco 49ers
-1.5

Actually needed to make the Rams a finest wager this week, however Kyle Shanahan’s historical past of dominating L.A. simply has me too involved. The Rams received their offense going towards Arizona to the tune of seven.4 yards per play final week. San Francisco affords a a lot harder defensive take a look at. Sadly so do the Rams and Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t regarded nice since taking on for Trey Lance. Making issues worse is Trent Williams absence. I am going to buck tendencies and take the Rams to steal this one on the street in prime time.

The Choose: Rams 24, 49ers 21
Bets: Go
