🏈 THE MAIN EVENT: A Josh Allen-induced rollercoaster

🔥 EXPERT PICKS: Jay and Ryan have thoughts on the Chargers

💪 POWER HOUR: A Free Bet drop for In-Play action!

🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: Can the Bears, ‘Boys and G-Men get it done?

THE MAIN EVENT

Vikings (+7) @ Bills

KICKOFF: 1:00 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The line nosedived from 9.5 to 3.5 due to the prospect of Case Keenum replacing Josh Allen (elbow). It rebounded 🏀 to 7 after reports that Allen can, in fact, grip a football. Will Bills WR Stefon Diggs have a little something extra for Minnesota, which traded him in 2020? The Vikings’ pass ‘D’ can be had (67.4 completion percentage allowed).

TRENDING: Bills games have hit six straight Unders. The Vikings have failed to cover four straight as a ‘dog 🐶.

INSIGHT: More than 81% of our handle is on the Under, which opened at 50 and now sits at 45.

EXPERT PICKS

NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf duel it out on their Sunday best and SNF best bet.

THE BOOK

Broncos +2.5 over Titans (+100)
"The Titans' 'D' is banged up and their QB situation is in doubt. The Broncos are rested off the bye."
Chargers +7.5 over 49ers (-110)
"Even when not at full strength, the Chargers have the clear advantage at QB with Justin Herbert."

THE BIG NAME

Cowboys -4 over Packers (-110)
"The Packers are in a downward spiral -- and I know downward spirals. The Cowboys will keep them down with their defensive pressure."
GAME PROPS: Chargers to Score First and Lose (+260)
"They'll get a field goal out of the gate -- but then have to settle for more FGs as the 49ers rally to win."

FOLLOW THE MONEY

PROS VS. JOES

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

1. Texans (+5) @ Giants

Pros: Texans 76% handle

Joes: Giants 62% tickets

Rationale: The Joes expect Saquon Barkley to go berserk on one of the league’s worst defenses, but the sharps 🤓  note that even when the Giants win, it’s rarely by 5+ points.

2. Broncos (+2.5) @ Titans

Pros: Broncos 77% handle

Joes: Titans 63% tickets

Rationale: The big bettors think the rested Broncos have the horses 🐎 to contain Derrick Henry. The Joes ain’t buying Russell Wilson.

3. Browns (+3.5) @ Dolphins

Pros: Browns 53% handle

Joes: Dolphins 62% tickets

Rationale: The Joes are blinded by Miami’s video game 🕹️ offense, while the Pros are troubled by Miami’s pitiful ‘D.’

THE CHASE IS ONE

PROPS TO THESE PROPS

Our three faves:

  • Bears WR Chase Claypool ⬆️ 2.5 Receptions (-175): Perhaps rejuvenated in Chi-town, Double C goes against a Lions ‘D’ that has allowed 19 different receivers to haul in 4+ catches
  • Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ⬇️ 70.5 Rushing Yards (-115): Maybe we’re just a bitter JT fantasy owner, but he hasn’t topped 80 yards since Week 1. Let’s see if that ankle allows for a full workload versus Vegas.
  • Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones ⬆️ 45.5 Receiving yards (-130): DPJ ranks second (to Amari Cooper) in targets and faces a Dolphins secondary allowing 155 yards per game to WRs
SUNDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Chargers (+7.5) @ 49ers

KICKOFF: 8:20 p.m. ET

TOTAL: 45

KEY FACTS: San Fran’s offense could get upgraded from dangerous to lethal 🔥 with the return of Deebo Samuel and Elijah Mitchell. Christian McCaffrey & Co. could feast against a defense that allows 5.7 yards per carry, highest in the league.

TRENDING: San Francisco is 6-1 ATS in its last seven home games. The Over is 10-4 in the Bolts’ last 14.

INSIGHT: With 77% of the cheddar 🧀 on the Bolts, the line has surged from 4.5 to 7.5.

WOODEN AWARD EDITION

IF I HAD $100 FREE BETS …

Kentucky’s Oscar Tshiebwe (+700) could become the first back-to-back Wooden Award winner since Ralph Sampson 🤯, but we prefer other options.

If PointsBet gave us $100 in Free Bets, here’s how we’d invest:

  • $40 on Gonzaga’s Drew Timme (+600): An upperclassman has won the Wooden Award in six of the last eight seasons. We love Timme and his headband.
  • $40 on Arizona’s Azuolas Tubelis (+4000): After shooting just 2-for-15 in two NCAA tourney games, the 6-11 Lithuanian will be the Wildcats’ go-to guy.
  • $20 on Kansas’ Jalen Wilson (+1800): Stuffed the stat sheet (19 pts, 11 boards, 7 assists) in season-opener versus Omaha.
