Atlanta Falcons @ Dallas Cowboys

1:00 PM


Line: DAL -3.5 (-105) 
Total: 53.5 (-110)

Atlanta is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games as an underdog.

Dallas is 10-3 SU in its last 13 games at home.

The OVER is 5-2 in the Falcons’ last 7 road games.

Atlanta News & Notes

The Falcons aren’t exactly known as a defensive power, but their Week 1 performance will leave some bettors wondering just how bad things can get. Atlanta allowed Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson to complete 31 of his 35 passes for 299 yards and four touchdowns; the Falcons have allowed 65 points in two games vs the Seahawks (both losses) over the past two seasons.

Fortunately for those who like offense, the Falcons had no trouble moving the football themselves. Matt Ryan threw for 450 yards in defeat, with three Falcons receivers (Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage) posting 100-yard performances. Even against a stout Dallas defense, we like Ryan to go OVER his passing yards total, especially if Dallas takes control.


Atlanta are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Atlanta's last 5 games.

Atlanta are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Atlanta are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

Dallas News & Notes

The Cowboys (and their backers) have to feel like they let their season opener get away. Dallas picked up seven penalties for 50 yards while going just 3-for-12 on third down. Quarterback Dak Prescott also had an off-game by his standards, averaging just 5.8 yards per pass attempt while settling for 266 total passing yards and one touchdown.

Expect a much more productive showing through the air Sunday afternoon against a Falcons defense that had no answer for Wilson and the visiting Seahawks. We favor the OVER on Prescott’s passing total, along with the OVER on Ezekiel Elliott’s rushing tally after he finished with 96 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in the loss to the Rams.


Dallas are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of Dallas' last 20 games.

Dallas are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games.

Dallas are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games at home.


Washington Football Team @ Arizona Cardinals

4:25 PM

Line: ARI -7 (-110)
Total: 46.5 (-109)

Washington has won 10 of its last 12 games vs the Cardinals.

The Cardinals are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as home favorites.

The UNDER is 9-2 in the Cardinals’ last 11 September games.

Washington News & Notes

A new name and a new coach led to a new look for Washington in the opener: a gutsy, come-from-behind victory. Trailing Philadelphia 17-0 late in the first half, Washington scored 27 unanswered points the rest of the way. Sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins shook off a poor start that saw him complete just three of his first nine passes, finishing 17 of 31 for 178 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions.

Washington’s defense carried the day, however, dominating Philadelphia’s banged-up offensive line to record eight sacks. Washington also forced three turnovers and allowed only 265 total yards en route to its first win over a division opponent in nearly two years. It was also just Washington’s third win in its last 17 games as an underdog.

As much as Washington has struggled recently, the team has actually been a decent bet on the road. Washington is 6-3 ATS in its last nine outings as a road underdog, and 8-3 ATS in its last 11 when catching more than a touchdown away from home.


The total has gone OVER in 5 of Washington's last 6 games.

Washington are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Washington are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games against Arizona.

Washington are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Arizona News & Notes

The Cardinals’ offense, defense and special teams all played key roles in last week’s 24-20 upset of the defending NFC champion 49ers. QB Kyler Murray ran for a team-high 91 yards and a touchdown, the Arizona defense held San Fran’s vaunted run game to just 123 yards and limited the Niners to 2-for-11 on third down, and a blocked punt set up one of Arizona’s touchdowns.

If there was one star to single out, it was off-season acquisition DeAndre Hopkins. The wide receiver showed no signs of a hamstring injury that hampered him in training camp, pulling in a career-high 14 passes for 151 yards. After being targeted on 40 percent of Arizona’s pass plays, Hopkins could be in for another big day in his home debut.

The Cardinals have struggled the last two years at home, however, winning just three of their last 16 games at State Farm Stadium and going 2-7 ATS in their last nine as home chalk.


The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Arizona's last 6 games.

Arizona are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Arizona's last 15 games against Washington.

Arizona are 3-12-1 SU in their last 16 games at home.

Baltimore Ravens @ Houston Texans
4:25 PM
Line: BAL -7.5 (-110) 
Total: 49.5 (-110)

The Ravens are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games.

The Texans are 4-14 SU in their last 18 games as home underdogs.

The OVER is 3-1 in the Ravens’ last 4 September road games.


Baltimore News & Notes

In Week 11 last season, Lamar Jackson had 222 yards passing, 79 yards rushing and four touchdowns en route to a 41-7 drubbing of the Houston Texans. This week, there is no reason to expect much different from Baltimore and the reigning league MVP as they come off another big offensive performance in Week 1.

Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown had a big game against Cleveland, posting five receptions for 101 yards. Look for Brown and Jackson to expose a Houston defensive backfield that was flamed by Patrick Mahomes in the season opener.

On the injury front, star left tackle Ronnie Stanley exited Sunday’s game with an ankle injury and did not return. Missing Stanley would be a major blow to the Ravens, but he’s expected to practice on Wednesday.


Baltimore are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Baltimore's last 7 games.

Baltimore are 13-1 SU in their last 14 games.

Baltimore are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against Houston.

Houston News & Notes

Unless star defensive lineman J.J. Watt has dropped weight and learned to play corner for Houston, it seems unlikely the Texans will be able to put up much resistance to the Ravens attack.

After an early score in Week 1, the Texans were unable to do much of anything on either side of the ball and watched the Chiefs put up 31 unanswered points before scoring a couple of garbage-time touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Deshaun Watson is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league, but the team around him is highly questionable outside Watt and a couple others.

Watch for speedy receiver Will Fuller V to be the recipient of this week’s garbage-time production. Fuller led the team with 10 targets in Week 1, converting that into an 8-112-0 line.


The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Houston's last 7 games against Baltimore.

Houston are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Houston's last 5 games when playing at home against Baltimore.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Houston's last 7 games against an opponent in the American Football Conference conference.
