KEY FACTS: After beating the Bengals, Giants and Commanders, Cooper Rush heads to Hollywood as a leading man. While Rush has not fired an interception in any of his starts, the Rams’ Matthew Stafford has tossed an NFL-high six.
TRENDING: The Cowboys have covered their last five road games. The Rams are 1-4 ATS in their last five at home. Bettors of both teams have feasted on the Under ⬇️ of late, reflected in 72% of the PointsBet handle.
NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and the PointsBet duo of Ryan Leaf and Teddy G went a combined 5-1 Thursday. What will Croucher and Leaf offer for their best NFL pick and an SNF selection?
Vikings -7.5 over Bears (-107)
"The Bears offense, stuck in the Stone Age, won’t be able to keep pace with the Vikings. There’s a minimal back-door cover potential when they refuse to (or simply cannot) throw the ball."
Ja'Marr Chase Under 70.5 Receiving Yards (-120)
“A terrifying bet, but the Ravens will be sell out to stop the deep passes to Chase that destroyed them last season. There’s a lot more talent in this Baltimore secondary now.”
THE BIG NAME
Seahawks (+5.5) over Saints (-107)
“Geno Smith has found a home. He is locked in. If New Orleans plays a lot of man coverage, it can be a big day for him.”
Bengals (+3) over Ravens (+100)
“They have dominated Baltimore and Lamar Jackson. They hung 82 points on them in two games last year.”
Steelers RB Najee Harris ⬇️ 55.5 rushing yards (-115): The Bills have not allowed 50 yards to a back all season. And if the game gets out of hand, Harris will be an afterthought as Kenny Pickett flings it around.
Panthers QB Baker Mayfield ⬇️ 195.5 passing yards (-120): Carolina’s O-line is allowing pressure on a league-high 28.3% of drop-backs, which means Mayfield could be back on his tar-heels all day.
Bears QB Justin Fields ⬇️ 40.5 rushing yards (-125): The Vikings play zone defense the second most of any team (87.9%), so when Fields tries to run, their stellar linebacking corps will mow him down.
KEY FACTS: Joe Burrow buried John Harbaugh last season, completing 60 for 84 passes for 941 yds and 7 TDs with one pick. Baltimore is yielding 315.3 passing yards per game, the highest in the NFL by 16. Can Lamar Jackson (+550 to win MVP, trailing Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes) save the Ravens?
TRENDING: Baltimore has covered five straight following an ATS loss. The Under ⬇️ has hit in Cincinnati’s last nine games.
