Either way, I like the Ravens DST as the top cash-game play this week, as Burrow has the third-highest interception rate (4.0%) and seventh-highest sack rate (8.4%) in the league. Despite being banged up the last two games, Joe Mixon is still sixth in touches per game (20.7). Now check it out healthy, he is cash-viable against a mediocre Ravens defense that’s ranked 13th in Football Outsiders’ rushing DVOA and 29th in DVOA on passes to running backs. Pleaser bets are interesting because they are the exact opposite of the teaser bet. With this version, you move the line in favor of the sportsbook. As this gives the bookmakers the advantage, you may wonder why this would be a worthwhile wager.

So, those looking to bet on the under might end up having a bit more success Sunday night. Coach Matt Rhule is optimistic, but giving up 578 yards to the Vikings only exposes a more significant problem. The Panthers lack depth on defense, and that could help the New York Giants.
He’s been leaving draft rooms with the best team on paper since 1998, and his knowledge of football, golf, and the NBA has helped him to leverage sportsbooks, fantasy leagues, and DFS ever since. Constantly trying to find an edge, Noonan focuses on player props, leveraging lookahead lines, scheduling anomalies, and team totals to try and beat closing lines in the NFL. He is the host of our flagship betting podcast, Move The Line NFL. You can find more of him @RyNoonan on Twitter. Quarterback Kyler Murray is putting together an MVP season, and he threw four touchdown passes and no interceptions in the win. Murray has not thrown for more than 268 yards in his last three games but also has a 7-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio against three solid defenses. Already blessed with a plethora of weapons, he has a new target to work with, following Arizona’s trade with Philadelphia to acquire tight end Zach Ertz.
Nfl Consensus Picks & Public Betting Money Percentages Trends
Mahomes threw two first-half interceptions before getting hot in the second half, but he now has an uncharacteristic eight over his first six contests. He could well have a tantalizing “get right” matchup in front of him, however, as the Titans defense is still shaky as can be. The Buccaneers are still dealing with several injuries on defense, and the Bears’ defense can keep Tom Brady from running up the score in this game.
It is very interesting to see the NFL betting odds shift two and a half points in favor of the Kansas City Chiefs ahead of this contest. Played well in their rout of the Washington Football Team, the Tennessee Titans surprised everyone by upsetting the Buffalo Bills in front of a national audience last Monday night. On the surface, one could argue that there might be some smart money driving this move. It was another big week for NFL betting favorites last Sunday. Sportsbooks got crushed by the public for the second straight week.
Here is a look at the latest public betting splits for the given week in the NFL season. You can find how bettors are wagering on the spread, total, and moneyline. Same game parlays provide and exceptional opportunity to combine relatively attainable prop bets into a larger bet with longer odds, which maximizes the potential financial upside of a winning bet. Bettors can earn up to $25 back on their qualifying NFL Same Game Parlay if the bet loses.
We still love the line on this game and it should be an easy opportunity to cash in. The Dallas Cowboys front office can pat itself on the back after two of the best draft picks in recent memory. Dallas is 4-1 and leading the NFC East thanks to a pair of rookies drafted earlier this year. Running back Ezekiel Elliott is the NFL’s leading rusher with 546 yards on 109 carries.
The last time the Chargers defeated the Chiefs was at the end of the 2013 season back when the Chargers were in San Diego. In last year’s opener, Pittsburgh struggled running the ball for just 35 yards and holding on for a victory. The Steelers may struggle again as RB Le’Veon Bell has yet to report to the team. Pittsburgh has placed the franchise tag on Bell for the second consecutive season.
For head coach Kyle Shanahan, a loss with two weeks rest against the two-win Colts would be crushing, as it would drop San Francisco to 2-4. However, a win gives the 49ers a real shot at an NFC Wild Card spot at 3-3. A pair of .500 teams will face off on a short week, as the Browns will host the Broncos likely without their top two running backs. Nick Chubb could return for Cleveland in this one, but they will definitely be without his backup, Kareem Hunt, who went down with a calf injury that will likely land him on IR. And to top it all off, Baker Mayfield will continue to play through a dislocated shoulder. After starting the season off 3-1, the Browns lost two straight and will look to get back to their winning ways against a Broncos team that has lost three straight after a 3-0 start.
The Pittsburgh defense has not been its usual self giving up an average of over 30 points a game in its first two games of the season. The Saints aren’t much better on the ground, but they don’t have to be when they have Drew Brees at quarterback and the NFL’s leading receiver Michael Thomas at wide receiver. Brees and the Saints passing game averages 345.3 yards per game, which is a big reason why New Orleans is third in the NFL in scoring (34.7 points per game). Thomas has 38 receptions for 398 yards and running back Alvin Kamara, who had 15 receptions in the win over Atlanta, has 30 catches and 289 yards for the season.
