MARQUEE MATCHUP 📺

PointsBet: A Fanatics Experience data and insights

OPENING KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The Jets are allowing a mere 17 points per game in four home contests, despite three of those opponents being the Bills, Chiefs and Eagles. Unders have gone a remarkable 21-7 in night games this season 🤯.

MAKING MOVES: The Chargers opened as 4-point road favorites and were first bet down to -2.5. Los Angeles then crossed the key number of 3 once again and has mostly stayed at -3.5 since last Wednesday. The total was first posted at 42.5, plummeted to as low as 39.5 and now stands at 40.

DOG DAYS: Not only are the Jets getting the majority of the spread handle at 72.3%, New York (+145) is also bringing in 59.3% of the moneyline handle despite the Chargers (-175) racking up 69.7% of the tickets in this market.

TOP PROP: The player prop bet that has generated the most handle is the over for Austin Ekeler receiving yards. Ekeler’s receiving yards prop has swung from 30.5 to 35.5, thanks to 98.3% of the tickets and 99.9% of the handle on the over 😮.

EXPERT PICKS

Daniel Parisi has his eye on an NBA rebounds prop, while Max Meyer has two plays from the first day of the college basketball season.

THE AGREEABLE ACE

Rudy Gobert over 10.5 rebounds (-140) [8 p.m. ET]
“Gobert gets a nice look at owning the glass tonight against a Celtics roster that is led by Jayson Tatum at 9.6 boards per game. Gobert has brought in at least 12 rebounds in 7 of 11 career games against Kristaps Porzingis.”

THE SENIOR EDITOR

Missouri State +4.5 (-110) at West Virginia [7 p.m. ET]
“This is a transition year for West Virginia with all of last year’s starters and coach Bob Huggins gone. Missouri State was one of the slowest-paced teams last season under Dana Ford, making the underdog more enticing when points will be at a premium.”
Kansas State +3.5 (-110) vs. USC [10 p.m. ET]
“In the first game of the season, I’ll gladly take the superior coach getting points. With Bronny James out and Vincent Iwuchukwu questionable to play, there are questions surrounding USC’s depth.”

TALKIN' TITLE

ACTION REPORT 📊

PointsBet: A Fanatics Experience creative

NFL, CFB, NBA, NHL … how about one more? The college basketball season tips off today and many bettors are already eyeing teams they think will cut the nets down.

Here are the five most popular bets by tickets to win the men’s college basketball title 🏆.

1. Michigan State (+1200) 12.8%
Michigan State has a lot of ingredients for a major March run — an experienced backcourt, a top-10 recruiting class and a coach we can trust.

2. Maryland (+5000) 10.1%
How about this longshot 🤔? Three starters are back from last year’s tournament team, including senior PG Jahmir Young. Young had a strong debut campaign in College Park (15.8 PPG, 3.1 APG) after transferring from Charlotte.

3. Kansas (+1000) 7.5%
The Jayhawks originally were tied for the third-lowest title odds at +1600, but are now on top of the odds board after landing a major piece in former Michigan star ⭐ Hunter Dickinson.

4. Gonzaga (+2500) 6.7%
Gonzaga has a much higher price than we’re used to seeing to start the season, though Saint Mary’s (+5000) was actually voted as the top team in the WCC preseason poll.

5. Purdue (+1200) 5.6%
A silver lining after last season’s catastrophic end: The only other No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed in March Madness won it the following year.

THIS ROOK CAN COOK

IS IT A LOCK? 🔒

PointsBet: A Fanatics Experience data and insights

C.J. Stroud was already chalk for Offensive Rookie of the Year before his historic 470-yard, 5-touchdown performance against the Buccaneers. Now he’s in a different stratosphere compared to anyone else for any awards market.

The only other odds-on favorite in an awards market is Jalen Carter at -200 for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

With Stroud now at -2000 for OROY, we’re wondering how much the Panthers already regret taking Bryce Young first overall 😬.
