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 $2,300. 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 334-280 on against-the-spread picks, returning $2,308. 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 14, we can tell you White loves the Los Angeles Chargers (+2.5) to cover against the Atlanta Falcons. (See the current NFL lines for every Week 14 game on our NFL odds page.)
"The lookahead line for this game was Chargers -1, but getting blasted by a not-great Patriots team swung it significantly toward the Falcons, who didn't play well themselves last week," White tells SportsLine. "The best way to beat the Chargers defense is to run the ball, but Atlanta ranks 31st in yards per carry, while the passing game won't have the benefit of Julio Jones out wide. The Chargers are getting healthier on both sides of the ball and have one of the better QBs Atlanta will have faced during its run of improved play since firing Dan Quinn. I expect L.A. to play hard for Anthony Lynn and beat a 4-8 Falcons team that shouldn't be favored on the road."
White also loves a team to "roll" and cover handily. Which team it is may surprise you. Anyone who uses this team could hit it BIG.
