KEY STATS: Atlanta is tied with Tampa Bay for top spot in NFC South, and RB Cordarrelle Patterson thrived last week (2 TDs versus Chargers) in return from IR. Panthers are reeling ⚠️, gave up five TDs to Joe Mixon and planning to start PJ Walker (58.9 comp percentage) over Baker Mayfield at QB.
TRENDING: Atlanta has failed to cover three straight after opening 6-0 ATS. Carolina (5-18 ATS in last 23) also struggling. Prime-time Unders are 17-10-1 this season.
PointsBet senior editor Teddy G returns after nailing his two picks last week (Texas -2.5, Davis Mills Under 202.5). Let's see what he, NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf have in store for college and TNF.
Cordarrelle Patterson Over 10.5 Receiving Yards (+115)
"He has been targeted in four of his last five games and might need only one to hit the Over."
Navy +15.5 over Notre Dame (-110)
“A classic letdown spot for the Irish. And Navy can be nasty against the run.”
THE BIG NAME
Falcons ML (-140)
"Atlanta is much better offensively. I do not believe the re-emergence of Baker Mayfield is the difference."
LSU -3.5 over Arkansas (-110)
"Every game is a now a playoff game for the Tigers, so they cannot afford an emotional letdown."
Cordarrelle Patterson Anytime Touchdown (-105)
"He's an endzone magnet. Add First TD Scorer (+475) for a sweeter return."
Tulane -1.5 over UCF (-110)
“The public continues to underestimate the nation’s most profitable team (8-1 ATS).”

KICKOFF: 7:30 p.m. ET
KEY STATS: The Horned Frogs, who moved up three spots to No. 4 in the CFP rankings, gain 7.36 yards per play. Only Ohio State (7.42) is more productive. Texas is 18th after Bijan Robinson torched Kansas State for 209 rush yards. Will Gary Patterson be UT’s secret weapon? The TCU legend is now an analyst under Longhorns coach Steve Sarkisian.
TRENDING: TCU is 7-1-1 ATS this season and the Over is 8-1 in last nine versus winning teams. Texas is strong at home (5-1 ATS in last six).
INSIGHT: The public (63% of tickets) is on TCU. The sharps (61% of money) dig Texas.
