Philadelphia 22 @ Las Vegas 33 | 10/24 | 8:05 PM UTC

Philadelphia +3

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Las Vegas was able to band together last week to get a victory after a week of turmoil. Even in that win, Las Vegas’ defense did not play particularly well, allowing more than 420 total yards to a Denver team that has been quite poor offensively in every other recent game. Las Vegas carries expectations in this game, and that has been a bad spot for the Raiders. The Raiders are 0-6 ATS since Nov. 29, 2020, as a favorite. The lone defensive bright spot in that 31-24 win against Denver was sacking Teddy Bridgewater five times. The Raiders are 0-13 ATS since December 2011 off a win after a game in which their defense achieved four-plus sacks.

Atlanta 30 @ Miami 28 | 10/24 | 5:00 PM UTC

Atlanta -2.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Teams generally get a bye week after playing in London, and it is with good reason. In fact, Atlanta has that after its win in London. Miami does not, and that is a huge travel disadvantage. Atlanta is laying points in this game coming off its bye week. Teams that are road favorites the week after its bye are 106-72-1 ATS. Atlanta defeated the Jets in London prior to that bye, 27-20. The Jets were held to 166 passing yards in that game. The Falcons are 8-0 ATS since Dec. 16, 2018, coming off a game in which they allowed fewer than 200 passing yards.

+345 9-5 IN LAST 14 NFL PICKS

San Diego St. 20 @ Air Force 14 | 10/23 | 11:00 PM UTC

San Diego St. +3

WIN

ANALYSIS: Air Force defeated Boise State, 24-17 last week as a road underdog. It was on the strength of its rushing attack as usual, as the Falcons ran for 308 yards. Air Force is 0-19-1 ATS since 2012 coming off a game as a road underdog in which it ran for at least 185 yards. With their defense coming off a strong performance themselves in a 19-13 win over San Jose State, the Aztecs are a value as an underdog. San Diego State is 17-1-1 ATS since 2010 as a underdog of more than three points coming off a game in which it allowed fewer than 24 points.

Clemson 17 @ Pittsburgh 27 | 10/23 | 7:30 PM UTC

UNDER 47.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: After being unable to get its offense going against Syracuse last week with a bye week to prepare, it is clear that Clemson’s offense is just not going to turn the corner. Still, its defense is playing at a strong level. In this big ACC matchup, it is up to the Clemson defense to keep this game close. Clemson defeated Syracuse last week, 17-14 in a game that went Under the total by 13 points. Clemson is 0-7 OU since 2014 coming off a road game that went Under the total by 10-24 points.

Massachusetts 3 @ Florida St. 59 | 10/23 | 4:00 PM UTC

OVER 59

WIN

ANALYSIS: After a brutal start to the season, Florida State has finally gotten things going on the strength of its offense. Playing a brutal UMass defense, we expect the Seminoles to not ease up early in this game and rack up some huge offensive numbers. Florida State is a 35.5-point favorite after playing as a 17.5-point underdog in its last game against North Carolina. Teams that are at least 31-point favorites that were underdogs in their last game are 122-76 OU.
