Game 1: New Orleans Saints at Baltimore Ravens (-2.5, -130) - 4:05 p.m. EST

It feels like the majority of the public will be on the Saints since they're getting points, but both of these teams tend to play at different levels in the situation they're in today. Baltimore has been a much better team at home historically, and it's worth noting that they've allowed only 15 points in second halves of all their games so far this season. The Saints, on the other hand, have had most of their struggles outside of the Superdome. 


Game 2: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins (+1, -115) - 4:25 p.m. EST

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been much worse on the road and a lot of people aren't giving this Redskins defense enough credit. Sure, they looked terrible two weeks ago against the Saints, but this a unit that is allowing the seventh-fewest rushing yards (69.4) per game and that could be the difference in this game. If the Cowboys can't get it done through the air and on the ground, it's going to be a long day for sure. 


Game 3: Over 52: Los Angeles Rams/San Francisco 49ers - 4:25 p.m. EST

The 49ers play at the fifth-fastest pace in the NFL so this should give the Rams plenty of opportunities to put points on the board. While we know the Rams' offensive stigma, this 49ers squad is more than capable of scoring in bunches and we saw that in primetime last week. Lastly, you've got two of the most brilliant offensive-minded coaches in the game.
