Cincinnati Bengals @ New York Jets

1:00 PM

CIN -10.5 (-107)

O/U 43 (-108)



Cincinnati is 3-0 ATS in its last 3 road games.

The OVER is 6-2 in Cincinnati’s last 8 games as a favorite.

New York is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games as an underdog.



Bengals News & Notes

Cincinnati’s confidence will be high after the win over Baltimore put the Bengals at the top of the ultra-competitive AFC North.

The Bengals’ weapons were on full display against the Ravens, with Joe Burrow throwing for 416 yards and three touchdowns, while Ja’Marr Chase piled up 201 receiving yards and a score, elevating his candidacy for the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

Cincinnati’s defense bamboozled Lamar Jackson, rising to the occasion against the red-hot Ravens signal-caller. They’ll line up Sunday against a New York offense that added veteran quarterback Joe Flacco in a trade with the Eagles to join backup QB Mike White after Wilson’s injury.


The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Cincinnati's last 6 games.

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

Cincinnati are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games against NY Jets.

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




Jets News & Notes

The Jets were willing to suffer with Zach Wilson at quarterback while he gained experience, but the injury to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 draft throws a wrench into those plans.

The Jets were dismantled 54-17 by the Patriots in Week 7 and now have to face a streaking Joe Burrow, who just finished shredding the Ravens defense.

There is simply no light at the end of the tunnel for the Jets, who have struggled offensively and defensively and now have lost Wilson for two to four weeks.


NY Jets are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games.

NY Jets are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of NY Jets' last 9 games against Cincinnati.

NY Jets are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games at home.





New England Patriots @ Los Angeles Chargers 

4:25 PM

LAC -4 (-108)

O/U 49.5 (-103)



New England is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 October games.

Los Angeles is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games.

The UNDER is 5-1 in Los Angeles’ last 6 games.


Patriots News & Notes

The Patriots would love to play the New York Jets every Sunday. With a 54-13 win at home over the Jets in Week 7, New England improved to 3-0 SU and ATS over its last three games against the Jets. Against every other team in the NFL, the Patriots are 1-7 SU and ATS since December 10, 2020.

Mac Jones enjoyed the best start of his career in the win against the Jets, going 24-for-36 for a career-high 307 passing yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Jones has now thrown four touchdown passes with only one interception in his last two games since recording a 5-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his first five NFL starts. Damien Harris had his second straight 100-yard rushing game with 106 yards and two scores as well.


The total has gone UNDER in 10 of New England's last 15 games.

New England are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against LA Chargers.

New England are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against LA Chargers.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of New England's last 6 games on the road.


Chargers News & Notes

In what many were expecting to be an exciting and competitive game between two of the AFC’s best teams, the Chargers laid an egg against the Baltimore Ravens.

Los Angeles couldn’t get anything going offensively in the 34-6 blowout loss as Justin Herbert had just 195 passing yards and the team as a whole managed to gain only 26 rushing yards. The loss snapped an 8-1 SU and ATS streak that began last year after Los Angeles suffered a 45-0 blowout loss at the hands of the Patriots.

Herbert was held to only 209 passing yards and two interceptions in the loss to New England last season. That game marks the only time in Herbert’s young career that he didn’t record at least one touchdown pass. Will the second-year quarterback be able to solve Bill Belichick’s defense this time around?


LA Chargers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Chargers' last 6 games.

LA Chargers are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of LA Chargers' last 8 games against New England.






Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints

8:20 PM

TB -4 (-108)

O/U 49 (-103)



Tampa Bay is 5-14-1 ATS in its last 20 October games.

New Orleans is 15-5 SU in its last 20 games.

The UNDER is 7-2 in New Orleans’ last 9 games.


Bucs News & Notes

Tampa Bay had one of its most complete four-quarter efforts of the season last Sunday in a 38-3 blowout win over the Chicago Bears. Tom Brady went 20-for-36 with 211 passing yards and four touchdowns and Leonard Fournette led a rushing attack that had 182 yards on 31 carries. The Buccaneers defense held the Bears to 311 total yards and three points while forcing five turnovers.

The Buccanneers had two of their worst regular-season games in 2020 against the Saints. New Orleans beat Tampa Bay 34-23 at home and 38-3 in Tampa in those two games. The two division rivals met in the playoffs and Tampa Bay got the last laugh, snapping a five-game losing streak against the Saints with a 30-20 win. Will that win carry over into regular-season success against New Orleans?


Tampa Bay are 14-1 SU in their last 15 games.

Tampa Bay are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against New Orleans.

Tampa Bay are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against New Orleans.

Tampa Bay are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games on the road.



Saints News & Notes

The Saints won’t get many style points for their win on Monday night as 5.5-point favorites on the road against the Seattle Seahawks, but they got the job done in a 13-10 victory to improve to 4-2 SU on the season. Jameis Winston completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 222 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

Winston’s transformation into a reliable game manager has been an amazing one. In his last season as a starter in Tampa Bay, he led the NFL in passing yards with 5,109 but also had a league-high 30 interceptions. This season he has averaged only 185.7 passing yards per game but has generally protected the ball and made good decisions as suggested by his 13-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio.


The total has gone UNDER in 7 of New Orleans' last 9 games.

New Orleans are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games.

New Orleans are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games at home.

New Orleans are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games when playing at home against Tampa Bay.
