Jonathan Coachman is joined by top sports betting experts Mike McCure, Zack Cimini and Allan Bell on the Early Edge podcast, powered by SportsLine. Get the prime plays for the NFL, college football and soccer for Tuesday, Sept. 14.

The Coach reminds us to check in for the Week 2 NFL preview episode after the guys look back at prop dramatics from Monday night. Mike tell us why we should not overreact to early NFL results, especially involving home underdogs. Allan also reveals how we can take advantage of some interesting home underdog trends. Zack looks ahead to Monday Night Football and spotlights a stat that heavily favors Aaron Rodgers even after a bad opening week. 

The SportsLine Play of the Day is Romelu Lukaku to be the first goal scorer as Chelsea takes on Zenit at 3:00 p.m. ET. The Coach also urges us to check out the full Champions League episode with more picks. 

Mike leads off the NFL week with his parlay of the Washington Football Team and the Arizona Cardinals at +131. Washington faces the New York Giants on Thursday at 8:20 p.m. ET. The Cardinals face the Vikings on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET. Mike says Washington is catching the Giants at the right time of the year. Minnesota will have a lot of trouble handling the Arizona passing game. 

Zack is also on Washington on Thursday. "In a prime time game, we know this line is going to move. We have a couple of days, I want to get on it now at -3 against the Giants," he says. "I look at Daniel Jones, he is 8-20 in his career. For the Washington Football Team, I know Taylor Heinicke is going to start, but Washington will rely on its defense."

Allan has a trio of picks, leading with the Saints -3.5 over the Panthers on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET. He points to how well New Orleans has performed in recent games at Carolina. In college football, he is taking Alabama -15.5 over Florida on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET. He said it is the right time to fade Florida. Allan is also going with Ole Miss -14 over Tulane on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. Lane Kiffin is certainly going to defend his turf.
