World Cup | United States 1 @ Iran 0 | 11/29 | 7:00 PM UTC
United States +100
ANALYSIS: The Under (2.5 goals) is tempting but without value at -155. So let's go with a projected clean sheet for the U.S. against a team that scored just three goals in its pre-2022 Cup games and managed a pair in a 6-2 loss to England only with an 11-on-10 advantage. (Iran then fell to Wales 2-0.) The lone U.S. goal allowed in this Cup was off a free kick. Its defense has been air-tight. Can the Americans find a goal? Needing a win to advance, they will send players forward to secure a 1-0 lead, then lay back to keep it that way.
World Cup | Serbia 3 @ Cameroon 3 | 11/28 | 10:00 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: The odds are not user-friendly, but the difference in talent and experience between the two sides is a chasm. Serbia was not half-bad in its 2-0 setback to Brazil. Cameroon was so-so in a 1-0 loss to Switzerland. The Serbs entered the tournament with one defeat in its last 14 matches, while the 'Roons have fallen in their last eight Cup outings, with a grand total of three goals tallied. Serbia needs this badly to keep pace with the Swiss for the group's No. 2 spot.
NFL | Atlanta 13 @ Washington 19 | 11/27 | 6:00 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: The Falcons' offense is far from flashy, but somehow they engage in medium-score games -- and sometimes high-scoring. Only two have ended as low as the 30s, and those produced 36 and 37. They are ground-oriented going against an opponent that has allowed the sixth most rushing yards per outing. Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke has kick-started his offense since replacing Carson Wentz. Atlanta's D has permitted more yards per game than all but three teams. This does not add up to such a low total.
