Pete Prisco: “I am in all probability on an island on this one, I might think about, as a result of I just like the Steelers. I feel they’re the higher crew. I do know they’re enjoying consecutive highway video games — that all the time worries me. And dealing with a crew coming off the bye. However I simply assume that (Pittsburgh) protection will cease the run, 3.4 (yards) per rush; that is necessary, and that is what the Ravens wish to do. They lead the league in dashing, so I feel you cease the run, you restrict their offense. They will hit a pair massive performs, however I feel the Steelers are gonna transfer the ball as effectively.” 

R.J. White: “If I’ve a lean on this sport, I am going Underneath 46.5. Pittsburgh’s No. 2 in defensive DVOA, Baltimore’s No. 3, they’re each center of the highway on offense in that rating. I feel we’ll get one other low-scoring sport between these groups that we have seen previously, and it is gonna get to 40, possibly creep a bit of over 40, nevertheless it’s not attending to 46.5. I might take the factors with the Steelers as effectively if I’ve to choose the unfold, however I just like the Underneath higher.” 

Kenny White: “Whole settlement with the Underneath due to the defenses on this sport. My play is Pittsburgh, although, taking the factors right here. … The Steelers have an excellent crew. (Ben) Roethlisberger continues to get higher. The offensive line, the most effective in soccer. The line of defense, the most effective in soccer. The protection general, excellent. They proceed to play higher every week. … Baltimore’s had one sport this yr towards a extremely good crew, that was Kansas Metropolis and we all know what occurred there. … This sport all the time looks as if it all the time comes right down to a area aim late within the sport and somebody wins by three factors.” 

Will Brinson: “It actually does, and that is what makes me a bit of hesitant to be on Ravens island right here, however I am OK with it. I feel Baltimore’s the higher crew, the extra full crew. Pretty much as good as Pittsburgh is — and Pittsburgh’s good, I used to be mistaken about Pittsburgh, Large Ben has performed fairly effectively — the Steelers are simply the seventeenth offense by DVOA. And I the Ravens are solely the Nineteenth-best offense by DVOA, in order that’s not an indictment on Pittsburgh, however I do not know that the Steelers rush protection is, with out Devin Bush, going to have the ability to decelerate a really completely different dashing assault with what the Ravens supply.”

Open: Browns -3, O/U 55.5
Present: Browns -2.5, O/U 49.5

“The Browns are lacking gamers on protection and look what the Bengals did to them. Derek Carr and Jon Gruden will put up numerous factors right here.

Patriots at Payments

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on CBS All Entry 
Open: Payments -3, O/U 46
Present: Payments -4, O/U 41

“The Patriots discover themselves at a crossroads of their season. At 2-4, they head into Buffalo to tackle the primary place Payments in a sport that would sprint their probabilities of clawing again into the AFC East race. Whereas they have not given a superb motive to lean their method as of late, this looks like a make-or-break situation that Invoice Belichick can have his crew prepared for. This matchup can also be fairly strong for New England as Buffalo’s poor run protection performs into one among New England’s few strengths offensively. Cam Newton additionally has an awesome familiarity with Sean McDermott’s protection after seeing in follow day by day throughout their shared time collectively in Carolina. Take the factors and, in case you’re feeling daring, roll with the moneyline at +170.” — Tyler Sullivan on why the Patriots are one among his locks

Open: Colts -3, O/U 51
Present: Colts -3, O/U 49.5

“The Colts have stumbled a bit over their previous few video games, however the bye ought to profit them an awesome deal. They’re glorious at all the things besides operating the ball, and I do not assume that is going to matter a lot towards a Lions crew coming off back-to-back highway wins towards bottom-of-the-barrel groups. The Colts protection should not have any downside slowing down a Lions offense that was struggling earlier than attending to face the Jaguars and Falcons, and I like the truth that the Colts are coming off a bye, which ought to widen the teaching edge between Frank Reich and Matt Patricia. Good spot for Indy right here.” — R.J. White on why the Colts are one among his finest bets

Jets at Chiefs

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on CBS All Entry  
Open: Chiefs -21.5, O/U 48
Present: Chiefs -19.5, O/U 49

The Chiefs are the autoplay in survivor swimming pools if you have not used them but, however since many rivals in all probability have, they’re probably not going to be the preferred play on the board. I anticipate that to be the Eagles, who get to go towards a seventh-round rookie QB in Ben DiNucci enjoying behind an offensive line in tatters. The road for that sport reopened at Eagles -7.5 and has shot up from there to double digits, so nobody is anticipating Dallas to make a lot of a sport of it. So Chiefs have the perfect shot at profitable, Eagles are more likely to be the preferred play, and if you wish to play contrarian and keep away from Philadelphia, the Bucs appear like your only option.

However do not simply take my recommendation. Head over to SportsLine to see which crew the SportsLine Projection Mannequin goes with in survivor swimming pools.

Present: Packers -6, O/U 50

“The Packers are the most effective groups within the NFL on the subject of overlaying the unfold, as they’re 5-1 this season. Their solely loss got here towards the Buccaneers, and they’re 5-0 towards the unfold vs. groups which are .500 or worse. Inexperienced Bay defeated Minnesota by a rating of 43-34 in Week 1, and people 77 mixed factors had been the fourth-most scored in a sport this season. Because the begin of final season, Inexperienced bay is tied with Kansas Metropolis for the perfect cowl proportion within the NFL, and is 7-3 towards the unfold as a house favourite. I’ll take them once more this week, however I am leaning in the direction of the Underneath this time.” — Jordan Dajani on why the Packers are one among his finest bets

Open: Rams -3.5, O/U 47
Present: Rams -3.5, O/U 45.5

“This shall be a troublesome turnaround for the Rams after enjoying Monday and touring throughout the nation. The Dolphins are coming off a bye and can begin Tua Tagovailoa on this one. That is a troublesome first take a look at for him towards that Rams protection. That is why I feel the Rams will come into Miami and break Tagovailoa’s first begin.” — Pete Prisco on why he has the Rams profitable 26-10

“I do not like this spot for the Bengals in any respect. As a lot as I like Joe Burrow that is one other week the place he probably will not have Joe Mixon and he is additionally coping with backups alongside the offensive line. We all know how unhealthy the starters had been already. I actually needn’t see the backups. Sure, the Titans protection is just not superb and I do anticipate this to be a high-scoring sport however the Bengals protection is an actual downside. They aren’t going to have any reply for Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill continues to play like a top-10 quarterback each week. There are a bunch of fellows on that Bengals protection who had been already waiting for Tuesday and the commerce deadline and hoping to hatch an Escape Plan.” — Jason La Canfora on why the Titans are one among his finest bets

“This line ought to simply be increased. The Chargers and Broncos may need the identical file, however Los Angeles is a greater crew and a a lot more healthy (someway) crew. Justin Herbert’s enjoying very well. Vic Fangio can prepare dinner up a protection to provide him points, however the run sport of Los Angeles ought to have the ability to do sufficient to open up photographs down the sphere for Herbert.

“It is a low complete, however I am assured these groups can keep beneath it. The Bears offense stinks (twenty sixth in DVOA), however the protection is okay (sixth in DVOA). Then there are the Saints. The narrative that Drew Brees does not play as effectively exterior the Superdome is a bit overblown, however what is not is the truth that Brees does not carry out as effectively in chilly climate. On Sunday afternoon, the present forecast for Chicago requires temperatures within the thirties and 20 mph winds blowing via Soldier Subject. That can go an extended approach to affecting each offenses, in addition to particular groups models.” — Tom Fornelli on why the Underneath on this sport is one among his finest bets

“The one motive the Seahawks are 5-1 is as a result of Russell Wilson is presently within the midst of placing collectively the most effective seasons ever by a quarterback. Wilson has been so good that he is been hiding Seattle’s deficiencies, and there are numerous them to cover. The issue for the Seahawks is that if Wilson begins to make errors, that probably means they are going to lose, which is one thing we noticed on Sunday when he turned the ball over 3 times in a loss to Arizona. The opposite downside for the Seahawks is that NFC West groups appear to be their kryptonite. Courting again to Week 12 of final season, the Seahawks have performed 12 regular-season video games they usually’re 0-4 towards NFC West groups, however 8-0 towards everybody else and this sport is not towards a crew from the ‘everybody else’ class.” — John Breech on why he is taking the 49ers to win outright on Sunday
