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 $1,400. 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 294-252 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. 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 5, we can tell you White loves the Cleveland Browns (+1.5) vs. the Indianapolis Colts.
"I think the wrong team is favored here," White tells SportsLine. "That Colts defense has looked awesome, but Indy's schedule has been pretty suspect. The Browns just scored 49 on the Cowboys, and before you remind me how bad the Cowboys defense is, Dallas had actually been solid against the run heading into that game. The Browns O-line is just dominant right now, which makes me worry less about injuries at running back."
White also says one team "gets right with a big win." Which team it is may surprise you. Anyone who uses this team could hit it BIG.
