When you're looking for advice on whom to pick on gameday in the NFL, nobody beats R.J. White. In fact, if you placed $100 on each of R.J. White's NFL spread picks since the start of the 2017 season, you'd be up more than $2,200. Smart bettors tail his selections.
White has been SportsLine's top pro football analyst for three-plus seasons. Over that span, the CBS Sports NFL editor and nationally recognized NFL Draft expert has gone 323-271 on against-the-spread picks, returning $2,218. Anyone who has followed him is WAY UP.
In the last five years the stats guru, whose picks are coveted by fans everywhere, has cashed huge twice in the world's most prestigious handicapping tournament, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest. From 2015 through '19 White went 233-174-18 in the SuperContest, nailing more than 57 percent of his picks and cashing in 2015 and '17.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, White did not travel to Las Vegas to enter this year's contest. But he is still offering his five weekly SuperContest picks to SportsLine members.
Using the Las Vegas SuperContest lines for Week 11, we can tell you White loves the Atlanta Falcons (+4.5) to cover at the New Orleans Saints. (See the current NFL lines for every Week 11 game on our NFL odds page.)
"I liked the Falcons earlier in the week and would've jumped all over the number had I known Taysom Hill would be starting this game," White tells SportsLine. "The lookahead line for this matchup was Saints -7, and you need to adjust more than four points for the drop from Drew Brees to Hill based on what we've seen so far from the versatile offensive weapon. The Falcons are playing well under Raheem Morris, but the one area where they've had consistent trouble is running the ball. That wasn't going to happen anyway against an elite Saints rush defense. With the Atlanta offense healthy, the Falcons will do enough to cover this number and could win outright unless Hill has a hidden gear we don't know about."
White also loves a game in which "the matchup is just too perfect" for the road team. Which team it is may surprise you. Anyone who uses this team could hit it BIG.
