Sunday Night Football Week 7 – Steelers @ Dolphins
Sunday Night Football Week 6 – Cowboys @ Eagles
By Kyler Wolff
Pick 1: COWBOYS +6.5 (at PointsBet)
The Cowboys have been extremely competitive without Dak Prescott. In fact, they’ve won all of their games under backup QB Cooper Rush. This has more to do with their dominant defense which has allowed only 14.4 points per game.
The Eagles have been very impressive this year, but because of their run-first offense (800 rushing yards over 5 games), they haven’t necessarily blown out any teams, with their only double-digit wins coming in Weeks 2 and 3.
The Cowboys might not win this game outright, but they should be able to stay within a touchdown in this one. Take them +6.5 in this one.
Pick 2: Noah Brown Over 35.5 receiving yards (-114 at FanDuel)
We didn’t see much of Noah Brown last week (only one reception for five yards), but don’t expect that to be the trend going forward. Brown has earned his way into the starting lineup and he should be involved heavily moving forward, especially with CeeDee lamb being listed as questionable with a hip injury.
If you look at the receivers that have had success against the Eagles secondary this season, they are all cut from a similar cloth as Brown. Amon Ra St. Brown, Terry McLaurin, Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore, and Marquise Brown have all had more than 50 yards against the Eagles, I believe Noah Brown will join that list.
Pick 3: Jalen Hurts Over 49.5 rushing yards (-114 at FanDuel)
The Cowboys have only played one other true rushing QB this season when they played Daniel Jones and the Giants. In that game, they gave up 79 yards on 9 runs by Jones.
They even gave up 6.5 yards per rush to the traditionally-pass-first Joe Burrow.
Scrambling has been one of the only ways teams have been able to move the ball against the stifling Cowboys D.
Put Jalen Hurts, who averages 53.2 rushing yards per game against that defense, you should have a big day for Hurts. Any time Micah Parsons overextends himself blitzing, expect Hurts to take off and get yards in bunches.
Sunday Night Football Week 5 – Bengals @ Ravens
By Kyler Wolff
Spread Pick: RAVENS -3 (at PointsBet)
The Ravens defense showed a lot of improvement last week as they held the dominant offense of the Bills to just 23 points after giving up 79 combined points over the two previous weeks. This combined with an electric offense run by the leading scorer in the league, (Lamar Jackson-13 TDs) should be enough to win this game, but can they beat the spread?
The Bengals defense has been quite impressive, after all, they were able to keep them in that five-turnover game against the Steelers through pure defensive strength alone. They’ve given up only 17.5 points per game and are the fourth-best team in the league at stopping the run. However, they have yet to play an offense with a dynamic running threat like Lamar Jackson. Last time they faced him, he ran for an easy 84 yards.
The Bengals easily won both of their 2021 games against the Ravens, blowing them out 41-17 and 41-21 respectively. I think the opposite happens here. I’ve got the Ravens winning by double digits.
Total Pick: OVER 47.5 (at BetMGM)
The Ravens are a team that gets into a lot of high-scoring games. 7 of their 17 games last year had a total point score over 50, and now this season they’ve started out with 2 of their first four games totaling over 50 points.
They particularly drive the score up against the Bengals, as the two teams racked up a whopping 120 points against each other over their two matchups last season.
There is nothing to show me that this game will be any different. The Bengals offense struggled early, but they have too much talent on that side of the ball to keep them from scoring on the Ravens defense that has given up the third most yards per game so far this season.
The competition the Bengals faced in the first four games has been fairly weak, and the last time these two teams played, it was without Lamar Jackson, so don’t expect the same results that we saw last season where the Bengals defense snuffed out the Ravens offensive production.
Moneyline Pick: RAVENS (at PointsBet)
I’m pretty confident that the Ravens are going to win this one. They’ve played really well despite some devastating close losses, and the Bengals are still trying to figure out their offensive line. But what I’m not as confident about is whether they can beat the spread.
At the end of the day, the Ravens are a good bet, whether it be the moneyline or the spread. They showed they are legit by hanging with the dominant Dolphins and Bills, as well as beating the rest of the AFC East (Patriots and Jets) by modest margins. This is a good team that is ready to ball out in Primetime.

Sunday Night Football Week 4 – Chiefs @ Buccaneers
By Isaac Goodwin
Moneyline Pick: CHIEFS at PointsBet
Despite the loss of Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes has been stellar as he is putting up career numbers to start the season (67.9% completion rate, 112.9 passer rating). The Chiefs pass defense is a weakness once again but with TB plagued by injuries it might not be a huge issue.
The Bucs are still trying to find its offensive identity and might be without Julio Jones (knee) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) once again. The offensive line is the biggest issue for TB as protecting Brady and the running game have been tumultuous.
The Buccaneers boast the 25th-ranked rushing offense (86.1 ypg) and rank close to last, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry but Brady is the GOAT and has managed the offense well.
Look for a close, low-scoring affair Sunday night as both offenses struggle to move the ball—with KC securing the dub.
Total Pick: UNDER 45.5 at BetMGM
While all but one matchup (SB LV) between Brady and Mahomes has gone over this total, don’t expect the same in this contest. The Chiefs are scoring 29.3 ppg but didn’t look great against a good Chargers defensive front and was a mess last week against the Colts.
The Buccaneers boast one of the league's best defenses and I expect them to have another solid game. There is just a lack of trust in the offense—even with Brady at the helm—because of the injuries at
Prop Bet: Tom Brady – Under 265.5 passing yards -125 at FanDuel
Tom Brady surpassed this mark for the first time last week throwing for 270 yards in a 14-12 loss to Green Bay. In the previous two games, he threw for 212 and 190 against the Cowboys and Saints.
The KC secondary is fragile but with Leonard Fournette running well and limited weapons on the outside, look for Brady to be held under 266 passing yards here.

Sunday Night Football Week 3 – 49ers @ Broncos
By Rob O'Connor
Total Pick: UNDER 45 at FanDuel
The 49ers have been an under team recently, especially on the road where 9 of their last 13 games have seen the under cash. The 49ers are 2-0 to the under to start the 2022 season.
The Broncos have also been trending to the under. They were 12-5 to the under last season and both of their games this season have gone under. They are 7-3 to the under in their last 10 home games.
Given the Broncos' struggles on offense in the red zone and the 49ers' focus on the run as they get Garoppolo back up to speed, this game has all the makings of a low-scoring affair.
Spread Pick: 49ERS –1.5 at PointsBet
In a competitive game between two teams, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is clearly an asset, while Hackett has not proven himself yet for the Broncos.
Given the upgrade at QB and the fact that the 49ers look more in sync as a team early in the year expect them to get the win a close game.
Prop Bet: Jeff Wilson Jr over 55.5 rushing yards (-115) at BetMGM
With Garoppolo getting his first start since off-season shoulder surgery, don’t expect the 49ers to ask too much of him. Look for them to focus on the same formula as last week: run heavy.
Jeff Wilson Jr. had 18 carries for 84 yards last week and another similar performance should be in the cards in Week 3. The Broncos have allowed the opposing teams' top backs to hit at least 60 yards in the first two games of the year. Look for more of the same, especially with Wilson’s backup Ty Davis-Price out with an ankle injury.

Sunday Night Football Week 2 – Bears @ Packers Picks
By Isaac Goodwin
Spread Pick: Packers -10
The Packers should move the ball well and force Fields into a turnover or two. Green Bay covering seems like the move as Rodgers has owned Chicago and Matt LaFleur is arguably the GOAT coming off a loss. Take the points on Green Bay.
Total Pick: OVER 41.5
Look for a higher-scoring game Sunday night. The Bears have scored 27.5 points per game in their last two games at Lambeau, including last season’s 45-30 shootout win for the Packers.
Prop Pick: QB Justin Fields OVER 35.5 Rushing Yards
This is arguably the prop lock-of-the-week as Fields recorded 35+ rush yards in 6-of-7 starts to end last season. He recorded 43 and 74 rushing yards in two starts against Green Bay in that stretch. Look for him to run 10+ times this week and easily surpass 35.5 in a high-scoring affair.

Sunday Night Football Week 1 – Buccaneers @ Cowboys Picks
By Rob O'Connor
THE PICK: UNDER 50.5 points
With the total sitting at 50.5 play the Under. Both offenses have a lot of injuries and question marks which should lead to a lot of opening night struggles to score.
PROP PICK 1: Tom Brady over 0.5 Rushing Yards (-110) at BetMGM Sportsbook
With a lack of offensive line protection given all the injuries, Brady will be under pressure all night. At some point, he will likely find a few positive yards on the ground as he is scrambling away from pressure.
PROP PICK 2: Tony Pollard over 51.5 Rushing/Receiving Yards (-110) at BetMGM Sportsbook
Given the number of opportunities, Pollard should have to touch the ball during the game, going over 51.5 total combined yards is not a big ask.
