IN THIS ISSUE

🏈 THE MAIN EVENT: All eyes on Mahomes vs. Burrow

🔥 EXPERT PICKS: Jay and Teddy duke it out on an NFL Sunday

💪 POWER HOUR: A free Lightning bet (made famous by Drew Brees)!

🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: It’s simple: 49ers, Chiefs and Cowboys to win

THE MAIN EVENT

Chiefs (-2) @ Bengals

KICKOFF: 4:25 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The Chiefs have won five straight, but can they exact revenge on the team that shocked them in last year’s AFC Championship? Patrick Mahomes (-170 MVP) has thrown for 320+ yards in six straight games 🌶️. Ja’Marr Chase (hip) is on track to return 🏃🏽 but the status of Joe Mixon (concussion) remains unclear.

TRENDING: Cincinnati has covered eight of its last nine. The Chiefs typically go Over (10 of last 13) on the road.

INSIGHT: More than 80% of our handle is on the Over, which has risen to 52.5.

EXPERT PICKS

NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and PointsBet senior editor Teddy Greenstein went 2-0 in their college picks. Here's what they dig today.

THE BRAIN

Ravens -9 over Broncos (-107)
"The Broncos are a train wreck, and Lamar Jackson gives Baltimore a floor that Denver cannot keep up with."
Colts Team Total Under 16.5 (-115)
"Micah Parsons will be teeing off on Matt Ryan and his poor offensive line all night."

THE BETTOR

Titans +4.5 over Eagles (-107)
“Two coaches I love in the underdog role: Mike Tomlin and Mike Vrabel. And with Vrabel you get Derrick Henry, too.”
Garrett Wilson Anytime TD (+185)
“Wilson vibes so well with Mike White, they connected on two scores against the Bears. Minnesota allows a completion percentage of 69.3, second highest (to the Raiders).”

FOLLOW THE MONEY

PROS vs. JOES

Little-known fact about a little-known guy: Before joining the Rams, John Wolford played for the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football. (AP Photo)

Spread tickets indicate public money. Spread handle reflects sharp action. Let’s dive in:

1. Chargers (+2.5) @ Raiders

  • Pros: Raiders 72% handle
  • Joes: Chargers 62% tickets

💡 The Joes see the Raiders’ crummy 4-7 record and assume the Bolts will light ‘em up. But San Diego is likely to be without WR Mike Williams, C Corey Linsley and RT Trey Pipkins.

2. Colts (+10.5) @ Cowboys

  • Pros: Colts 55% handle
  • Joes: Cowboys 57% tickets

💡 The Pros have seen the scrappy Colts keep their games close under Jeff Saturday. The Cowboys are a delectable choice for sloppy Joes.

3. Seahawks (-6.5) @ Rams

  • Pros: Rams 75% handle
  • Joes: Seahawks 52% tickets

💡 The Joes are fading a team (L.A.) that’s a league-worst 2-8-1 ATS and without Matt Stafford (IR). The sharps are fading a team (Seattle) that has lost two straight and suffered a flu-like outbreak at practice this week.

PROPS TO THESE PROPS

STOP SHOUTING, TYREEK! We won't bet against you. (AP Photo)

If you’re like us, you want to bet Dolphins-49ers but can’t decide on the spread (SF -4). Consider going the prop route:

  • Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa ⬆️ 265.5 passing yards (-120): He has topped this four straight weeks, and San Fran is poison for opposing rushers.
  • Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki ⬇️ 20.5 receiving yards (-110): The Niners are second best against TEs in yards per catch. And the former Penn Stater got ghosted last week — zero catches, one target.
  • Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill ⬆️ 90.5 receiving yards (-115): Stud receivers such as Cooper Kupp, Tyler Lockett, DeAndre Hopkins and JuJu Smith-Schuster have feasted on the Niners. Hill gets 10+ targets in almost all non-blowouts.
A MESSI SITUATION

MARKET MOVERS

Most figured a playoff berth would elude Ohio State. Not PointsBet traders, who last week priced the Buckeyes at -150 to make the final four. (AP Photo)

Hope you got CLV (Closing Line Value) on these:

  • Texas Rangers to win the World Series +6600 ➡️ +3300: The Jacob deGrom effect
  • Lionel Messi to be Top Goal Scorer in the World Cup +600 ➡️ +450: France’s Mbappe (+240) leads the pack
  • Ohio State to win the natty +900 ➡️ +350: Our traders were right! (Again.)
SUNDAY NIGHT SLAUGHTER?

Colts (+10.5) @ Cowboys

KICKOFF: 8:20 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: Matt Ryan’s family members might want to watch the World Cup instead 🙃. He has been sacked 32 times, and Dallas leads the NFL with 45. The Cowboys are on extra rest (since Thanksgiving), while the Colts had to travel after their MNF loss to the Steelers. On the plus side, Jonathan Taylor is averaging 5.0 yards per rush in his last five games.

TRENDING: The Cowboys are 14-5 ATS as a favorite since 2021. Indy has produced eight Unders ↘️ in its last nine road games.
