KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET
KEY STATS: You won’t find worse championship hangovers than the Rams (3-9); even the post-Jordan Bulls had a higher winning percentage (.260) the year after The Last Dance crew stopped recording. While LA looks to end a six-game losing streak, perhaps with Baker Mayfield at the helm, the Raiders have won three straight. No NFL player has been targeted more than Davante Adams (11.3 per game).
TRENDING: The Raiders are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 versus teams below .500. The Under ↘️ has cashed in 17 of the Rams’ last 25 home games.
INSIGHT: More than 75% of our spread handle backs the Raiders.
NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher nailed the Under (41) in MNF. PointsBet capper Daniel Parisi narrowly missed his Mike Evans prop. Here's what they like tonight and Sunday.
Cam Akers Over 45.5 Rushing Yards (-105)
"Vegas has a poor rush defense, and Akers looks the healthiest he has in two years."
Dolphins -3.5 over Chargers (-105)
"Miami is a different team with LT Terron Armstead (ankle) and will blow out a fading Chargers squad."
Raiders -6.5 over Rams (-105)
"The Raiders are not only humming on offense, their pass rush is percolating."
Vikings +2 over Lions (-107)
"Minnesota won't mind exchanging points at Ford Field and if it comes down to late-game execution, the Vikings have the edge."
From noted capper Jon Eimer (@BucketJonBets on Twitter) on Croatia vs. Brazil (10 a.m. ET Friday):
⚽ [$50] Brazil Halftime/Brazil Fulltime under GAME PROPS (-105): “Brazil decimated a serious South Korean squad 4-1 in the Round of 16 and looked as though they could have scored more. Croatia has come across as rather lethargic.”
⚽ [$50] Neymar Anytime Goal Scorer (+125): “Take your pick among Brazil’s “Big Three.” Neymar, Vini Jr, and A. Richarlison have all been in tremendous form, but we have to back the man himself, Neymar, to dominate post-injury for his country.”
KEY STATS: Both teams rush on more than 80% of snaps, but Army does it better. The Black Knights gain a full yard per play more the Midshipmen in games against FBS opponents. If you like points, wait for bowl season because the total hasn’t reached 40 in the last eight meetings.
TRENDING: Army is 5-0-1 ATS in the last six meetings, and the Under has hit 14 straight times. Last year’s was comfortable – a 17-13 final score with a Total at 38.5.

The Match 7.0 features golf legends, rather than QBs trying to avoid giving concussions to gallery members.
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. ET Saturday
WHERE: Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Fla.
FORMAT: Best Ball (i.e. best score) for 12 holes of team match play
Jordan Spieth/Justin Thomas (-130): They’ve gone 8-2 as a pairing in the Presidents and Ryder Cup since 2018. If you think relationships matter in these events, consider Spieth was Thomas’ best man at his wedding last month. This is the healthier duo as Tiger Woods withdrew from last week’s Hero World Challenge due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Tiger Woods/Rory McIlroy (+105): Woods can still hit every shot and is the only player in this group with experience in The Match, most recently beating Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady with Peyton Manning in 2020. McIlroy is ranked as the No. 1 player in the world, and the two have literally grown closer over the years as neighbors in Jupiter, Fla.

TCU +7.5 vs. Michigan (Glendale, Ariz.)
POINTSBET INTEL: “We opened the Wolverines as 9-point favorites but had some sharp action come in on the Horned Frogs. We shifted the line to 7.5 on Monday – and it even got down to 7 at one point. Michigan is the better team, but I would not be surprised if this game is closer than people expect.”
Ohio State +6.5 vs. Georgia (Atlanta)
POINTSBET INTEL: “We opened Georgia as 7-point favorites but sharp action/global market moves forced us to push the line to 6.5, where it has held steady. The public is all over the Bulldogs (97% of spread handle) for a large liability, but we think the OSU offense is the best in the country and will be the toughest challenge all year for Georgia’s elite defense.”
