🏈 THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: Money pouring in on the Ravens

🔥 EXPERT PICKS: Can the guys hit every college pick again?

💪 POWER HOUR: A free shot at a Same Game Parlay!

🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: A Lamar Jackson combo at +275

THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Ravens (+2) @ Bucs; Total 46

KEY FACTS: The Bucs (1-4 since Week 3) are cratering while the Ravens 🪶 play close games every week. Baltimore’s rushing attack ranks second in yards per carry (5.4), and the Bucs allowed 6.4 per tote last week to Carolina. Tom Brady has just 8 TD passes through seven games.

TRENDING: The Ravens are 1-6 ATS in their last seven against teams with a losing record. The Under has hit in six of Baltimore’s last seven games.

BOOST: Leonard Fournette 75+ Rushing Yards in a Bucs Win +350 ➡️ +410

EXPERT PICKS

The boys swept their college picks last week. Can NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and the PointsBet duo of Ryan Leaf and Teddy Greenstein do it again? And what is their best TNF play?

THE BOOK

Tom Brady Over 39.5 Pass Attempts (-120)
"He has fired 42+ in four straight, and with Chris Godwin back to full health the offense will be as pass-heavy as last year."
Penn State (+15.5) over Ohio State (-107)
“The Nittany Lions are a different beast at home, and recent history indicates they will keep this within two TDs.”

THE BIG NAME

Ravens ML (+110) over Bucs
"The Ravens are close to being undefeated, having blown three double-digit leads. The Bucs can’t even score in double digits."
USC-Arizona Under 76.5 (-107)
"I see a high-scoring game, but not 76 points! It would have to be an epic shootout, and I don't think Arizona can keep up."

THE BETTOR

Mike Evans Anytime TD (+115)
“Evans has to redeem himself after dropping that bunny last week. (Side note: Even after this cashes, I pledge not to ask for Evans’ digits or autograph.)"
Kentucky (+12) over Tennessee (-107)
“Kentucky is talented, feisty and has the SEC’s No. 2 defense. The Vols are in a look-ahead spot with Georgia on deck.”

'STROS VS. PHILLIES

If I had $100 Free Bets …

The Astros (-180) 🚀  are a sizable favorite over the Phillies (+150) 🅿️. If you want to get creative, check out Series Handicap with eight outcomes ranging from -700 (Astros +2.5 games) to the risky +500 (Phillies -2.5).

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

  • $60 on Astros -1.5 (+115): Given Houston’s dominant arms (2.89 regular season ERA) and World Series experience (4 of last 6), this is the value play.
  • $40 on Astros -2.5 (+275): A gorgeous price if the Phillies phlop.
THE BRADY BUNCH

MARKET MOVERS

  • [NFL MVP] Tom Brady: Is it too late to un-unretire? 👨‍🦯He is +10000 (100/1) to win after starting the season at +850.
  • [Heisman] Hendon Hooker: The Tennessee QB has firmed to +200, trailing only C.J. Stroud (-110). Caleb Williams (+1200) and Bryce Young (+1500) might need a Hail Mary 🙏🏽.
  • [NCAA title] Oregon: The mighty Ducks 🦆 cut their odds in half (+8000 to +4000) after bruising the UCLA Bruins (now +25000, i.e. 250/1).
