    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 over the last three seasons, you'd be up almost $2,000. Smart bettors tail his selections. 

    White has been SportsLine's top pro football analyst for three seasons. Over that span, the CBS Sports NFL editor and nationally recognized NFL Draft expert has gone 277-232 on against-the-spread picks. 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. Since 2015 White has gone 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 1, we can tell you White loves the Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) at home against the Seattle Seahawks

    "Maybe I'm the sucker, but I don't think this Falcons team is as bad as people are making it out to be," White says. "The defense found its footing in the second half of last season, when the team was able to go on the road and beat both the 49ers and Saints. The offense has a lot of stability coming out of this unique offseason. And while the Seahawks are likely the better team, they've struggled in recent Week 1 matchups. Remember them barely holding off a Bengals team last year that finished with the No. 1 pick? They lost the two years before that and edged out a bad Dolphins team as double-digit favorites in 2016 as well."

    White also says a home favorite "wins with ease" this week. Who it is may surprise you. Anyone who backs this team could hit it BIG.

    So which teams should you back in Week 1? And which home favorite wins with ease?... Join SportsLine right now to see who you should back in Week 1, all from the expert who keeps crushing the world's most prestigious handicapping tournament!
