KEY FACTS: Ten Chiefs caught passes in Kansas City’s 44-21 crushing of the Cardinals. Can the Chargers stymie an offense that produced 7.4 yards per play? And can they score enough without Keenan Allen (hamstring)?
TRENDING: The Chargers are 1-5 ATS following their last six victories. The Over has hit eight times the Chiefs’ last nine games.
INSIGHT: More than 70% of our handle backs the Patrick Mahomes crew.
The Horns hooked us last week. Let’s see whose predictions on Thursday Night Football and a college game will be sharpest – Jay Croucher, Ryan Leaf or Teddy G.
Chargers-Chiefs Under 54 (-107)
“The Chargers – to their detriment – appear obsessed with running the ball, a blessing for Under bettors. KC’s offense has been inflated after beating up on Arizona’s horrid pass defense.”
Michigan State +3.5 @ Washington
“Kenneth Walker is gone, but Michigan State’s defense is imposing enough to keep this a low-scoring game and cover.”
THE BIG NAME
Chargers-Chiefs Over 54 (-107)
“This final could be 35-28. Both offenses are potent. And while the defenses are capable, this game will have more scores than stops.”
Georgia -24.5 @ South Carolina (-107)
“Every week you see Georgia’s (betting) line and think: This game will finally be tougher. And then the Dawgs win 49-3 or 45-0. South Carolina gave Arkansas a pretty good run, but still.”
Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 TD passes (+110)
“Plus money for the MVP fav who hit four different targets for TD passes in Week 1? Yes, please.”
Western Kentucky +6.5 @ Indiana (-107)
“The Hilltoppers are so sneaky good, ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives them a 54.8% chance of an outright victory.”

Forget the post-season voting. PointsBet has made a ruling. We’re paying out all bets on Aaron Judge to win AL MVP, allowing clients to enjoy or re-invest their winnings.
Two other races could come down to the wire:
AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander (-120) vs. Dylan Cease (+115) – Cease was a healthy favorite (-150) before getting outdueled Wednesday by Colorado’s Kyle Freeland. Verlander hopes to return Friday against the A’s. Cease has the higher WAR (5.8), Verlander the lower ERA (1.84).
NL Rookie of the Year: Spencer Strider (-130) vs. Michael Harris (+100) – Braves fans might want to saw the award in half, but Strider has the edge because he has been with the team since April and strikes out an ungodly 13.8 batters per nine innings.
PointsBet has debuted a new add that is so cheeky, the original version was deemed too edgy for broadcast. Playfully nicknamed “Sanctuary,” it helps PointsBet lay claim to the throne as the industry leader in live betting. We hope you enjoy the initial cut and remember to “Do it Live!”
WHAT’S THE DEAL: While Scott Frost fends off accusations of being asleep at the wheel, the show goes on. Nebraska’s defense played with no pride against Georgia Southern; will that change under interim coach and former Huskers QB Mickey Joseph?
TRENDING: OU’s defense has been nasty, allowing one TD in two games. But this is weird: The Sooners are 0-6 ATS in their last six following a straight-up win of 20+ points.
KEY FACTS: Louisville QB Malik Cunningham is completing just 58.8% of passes but rushed for 121 yards in 20-14 upset of UCF. The ‘Noles haven’t suited up since their Sept. 4 stunner over LSU, which ended on a blocked extra point.
TRENDING: Louisville is 4-2 ATS in its last six games as underdogs. The under is 6-0 in Florida State’s last six games.
CASE FOR THE DOG: FSU struggled to contain LSU QB Jayden Daniels (2 TD passes, 114 rush yards), and the Cardinals are home and resilient.
QBs Light It Up
Mahomes & Herbert to Combine for 6+ TD passes: +220 –> +260
