If you had placed $100 on each of R.J. White's NFL picks last season, you would have won nearly $2,000. Smart bettors tail R.J.
The CBS Sports NFL editor just finished in the top 1 percent of the Las Vegas SuperContest, tying for 18th out of a record 2,748 competitors. It was no fluke, either, as he also cashed big-time in the 2015 SuperContest.
Now that the full 2018 NFL schedule has been released, White has revealed his best bets for Week 1.
We'll give one away for free: White loves the Rams (-1.5) on the road against the Oakland Raiders. "The late Monday night game can get weird, so nothing would surprise me here. But the Rams are much more talented on both side of the ball, on special teams, and almost certainly at head coach. This is a short road trip for them, which will help mitigate the homefield advantage. This is one you should probably hop on early -- I can't imagine the preseason buzz that's going to surround the Rams not pushing this line up to at least -3, and probably to -3.5."
White also is calling for a team with strong Super Bowl aspirations to get absolutely shocked in Week 1....
