Falcons at Jaguars (in London)

Time: Sunday, 9:30 a.m. ET, stream on ESPN+
Open: Jaguars -3, O/U 43.5

“The Jaguars have not been great this season and I’m glad I faded them last week, but a trip across the pond is potentially exactly what this team needs. Jacksonville is more familiar with London than anyone else, plus we get a Calvin Ridley revenge game! The former Falcon had more receptions (8), receiving yards (101) and touchdowns (1) in Week 1 than he has recorded in his last two games combined (5 receptions, 72 yards, 0 TDs), but I bet Doug Pederson will look to get him more involved this week. 

“Atlanta put up just six points vs. the Detroit Lions last week, and Desmond Ridder has been terrible on the road. He’s 0-3 away from Atlanta in his young career, and the Falcons have averaged just 11.0 points per game in those contests. The Falcons want to run the ball with Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier. Both are talented backs, but Jacksonville ranks No. 7 against the run this year. I think this could be a get-right spot for Jacksonville.” — CBS Sports writer Jordan Dajani explaining why he is laying the field goal and looking for the Jaguars to beat the Falcons in London, 24-20.

Ravens at Browns

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)
Open: Browns -1, O/U 42.5

“This is an enormous early-season division game between two good teams. The Ravens lost last week to the Colts at home and have been hit hard by injury. The Browns have won two of three behind a dominant defense. That defense will be the difference. Lamar Jackson and the passing game aren’t clicking yet. Browns win it.” — CBS Sports Senior NFL writer Pete Prisco on why he is taking the Browns to pull off the 24-16 win over Baltimore. To see the rest of Prisco’s picks, click here

Broncos at Bears

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)
Open: Broncos -2.5, O/U 42

“Once a year, the NFL should be allowed to flex a game to 3 a.m. and this year, I think the league needs to seriously consider putting this game there so that no one has to watch it. Instead of putting it on CBS, we’ll hand it off to our corporate cousin Comedy Central and then we can all laugh together while the Broncos and Bears try to play football. I could even announce the game, but only if I’m given a bottle of tequila that I can drink while I watch. 

“Trying to pick a winner in this game is like trying to pick what you want for lunch, but your only two options are grilled hamster and a rock. 

“On one hand, you have Chicago. If I’ve noticed one thing about the Bears this season, it’s that they show up every week with no offensive game plan and then they make it up as they go along. Not surprisingly, this has been working out horribly for them, and to be honest, I think people are starting to notice. I mean, we’ve barely played two weeks and Justin Fields is already having an existential crisis. That’s what playing for the Bears does to you. 

“As bad as things are going with the Bears, things aren’t much better in Denver. We’re only three games into the season and the Broncos defense is already playing like it has given up all hope for the year. Giving up 70 points to the Dolphins was bad, but they also gave up 35 points to the Commanders in Week 2, which is basically the same thing as giving up 70.

“Through three weeks, the Broncos are surrendering 40.7 points per game, which makes me think the Bears offense might actually have a little bit of success on Sunday. Ha ha. I’m just kidding. The Bears offense isn’t going to have any success. We all know that. 

“This is a big game for both teams, but I have to think it’s a bigger for the Broncos because the only thing more embarrassing than giving up 70 points in an NFL game is losing to the Bears. If that happens to the Broncos in consecutive weeks, they might as well just forfeit the rest of the season. The good news for Broncos is that I don’t think they’re going to need to forfeit the rest of the season.” — CBS Sports writer John Breech is taking the Broncos to edge out a 27-24 win over the Bears on Sunday. Click here to check out the rest of Breech’s picks for Week 4.  

Rams at Colts

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Colts -1, O/U 45

“The Rams are playing consecutive road games and this one is on a short week. The Colts are back home after two victories on the road, including an upset of the Ravens last week. Anthony Richardson should be back at quarterback this week for Indy. This will be a close low-scoring game, but in the end I think Matt Stafford will make a big play to win it.” — CBS Sports Senior NFL writer Pete Prisco on why he sees L.A. edging out a 20-17 win in Indy.

Dolphins at Bills

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here
Open: Bills -2.5, O/U 53.5

“Everyone and their brother is dying to bet Miami, and they can’t understand why the Dolphins aren’t favored after dropping 70 on the Broncos last week. It’s a fair question, but it clearly ignores how good Buffalo remains. The Bills are good. Josh Allen is good. The Dolphins are really, really good and Mike McDaniel might be the best coach in the NFL *right now.* Having said all that, Sean McDermott is in his bag defensively at the moment and Allen took the Week 1 Jets lesson to heart. If Vic Fangio flips him for real, then you tip your cap. But everyone is going to back the Dolphins here and be shocked when the Bills are the better team. Well, not everyone.” — CBS Sports writer and Pick Six Podcast host Will Brinson on why he is laying the 2.5 and riding with the Bills to take down the Dolphins.

Vikings at Panthers

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Vikings -3, O/U 44

“You shouldn’t bet this game, but my parents are going to be in Charlotte for this matchup. And I’ll be damned if I won’t fade Kirk Cousins — even at 1 p.m. — in the interest of hoping my family can see some good football. Also … the Vikings defense isn’t good, they won’t pressure Carolina as much as people expect, and the Panthers offensive line will/should be motivated by the eight (EIGHT!) false starts from last week. This is a quietly desperate Panthers team — even if the Vikings are better, they’ll find a way to let Carolina stay within a field goal.” — CBS Sports writer and Pick Six Podcast host Will Brinson on why he is taking the 3.5 points with the Panthers as they host the Vikings.

Steelers at Texans

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here
Open: Steelers -3, O/U 40.5

“How can you not be impressed by what we’ve seen from C.J. Stroud over the last few weeks? In my estimation, he’s the best out of the rookie quarterbacks through three weeks and that includes an upset win last week against Jacksonville. Now, Houston heads home to host the Steelers, who were able to edge out a win on Sunday night in Las Vegas. I wasn’t overly impressed with Pittsburgh’s offense in Week 3 outside of Calvin Austin III’s 72-yard touchdown. The Raiders secondary is arguably the worst in the NFL at the moment and it didn’t seem like the Steelers could consistently exploit it. Given the way Stroud has played and my questions still lingering about the Steelers offense, I’ll gladly back the home dog with a field goal in my back pocket.” — CBS Sports writer Tyler Sullivan on why he is taking the points with Houston, and also sees them pull off the home upset over the Steelers.

Buccaneers at Saints 

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Saints – 3, O/U 40.5

Derek Carr is dealing with a shoulder injury and it’s unclear if he’ll suit up in this matchup. If he does, he’ll almost certainly be less than 100%, so it seems wise to grab the field goal here and look for the Bucs to head into New Orleans and pull out a win. Tampa Bay has been solid with Baker Mayfield under center and has been extremely efficient on third down. Mayfield has the highest completion percentage (78.1%) in the league on third down this season and a 129.4 passer rating. Meanwhile, the Saints have been unable to move the chains as their 53.1% punt rate is the highest in the league and that was with a healthy Carr.” — CBS Sports writer Tyler Sullivan saying why he is taking the points with Tampa Bay in their NFC South matchup with the Saints.

Commanders at Eagles

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Eagles -7, O/U 44.5

“Unlike the Jaguars, the Eagles have proven they’re one of the elite teams in the NFL, and I have them tied at the top of my power ratings at 7.5 points better than average. Once you account for home field advantage, even if you only give the Eagles 1.5 points for it like I do, the line is saying that the Commanders are an above average team at a line of Eagles -8. And despite a 2-0 start, I don’t think they’ve proven that. They struggled to beat the Cardinals at home in Week 1, then had trouble early against a bad Broncos team and nearly lost after giving up a Hail Mary. Against an elite team last week, they got completely shut down, with Sam Howell unable to get anything going on offense. 

“I expect more of the same against this Eagles team, which just needs to avoid turnovers on offense to win by double digits.” — R.J. White has  been SportsLine’s No. 1 NFL against-the-spread expert over the last six years, going 535-450-30 against the spread to put him up more than 35 units on those picks at SportsLine since 2017. White has also delivered a 56.5% hit rate on my Vegas contest picks over the last eight seasons, which is exactly what you’re getting here with his Circa Million picks that includes him laying the 8-point spread and riding with the Eagles. To see the rest of White’s contest picks, head on over to SportsLine.   

“I’m having a tough time figuring out the Commanders. I think Sam Howell has potential, but his offensive line isn’t doing him any favors. He completed 19 of 29 passes for 170 yards and four interceptions in the 34-point loss to the Buffalo Bills last week, and was sacked nine times for a loss of 45 yards. Howell is being sacked at a near-historic rate, as the 19 the Commanders have allowed so far are tied for second-most through three games of a season since 1970. Next Gen Stats says Howell was pressured on 27 of 39 dropbacks last Sunday, which was the second-highest pressure rate recorded in a game in the Next Gen Stats era. 

“I know the Commanders upset the Eagles in Philly in prime time last year, but that’s when king Taylor Heinicke was quarterbacking. The Eagles are without a doubt one of the best teams in the NFL, and they have one of the best defensive fronts highlighted by rookie Jalen Carter. This is a pretty big number, but I think the Eagles remember what happened last year when they were 8-0. Philly is 2-0-1 ATS this year while Washington is 1-2.” — CBS Sports writer Jordan Dajani explaining why he is laying the points and rolling with the Eagles to cover against Washington.

Raiders at Chargers

Time: Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)
Open: Chargers -4, O/U 50.5

“This game between two 1-2 teams is an early-season biggie in the division. The Chargers can roll up big numbers on offense, but they can’t stop anybody. Look for Justin Herbert to play well here against a Raiders defense that made Kenny Pickett get on track last week. Chargers win a shootout.” — CBS Sports Senior NFL writer Pete Prisco is predicting the Chargers will earn the 31-24 win over Las Vegas. To see all of his picks for Week 4, click here

Cardinals at 49ers

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Team -14, O/U 42

“I’m not saying the 49ers are on upset alert, but am I alone in thinking this line is too high? The Cardinals have led in every game they’ve played so far this year, and are 3-0 ATS. In fact, they are one of just five teams to hold halftime leads in all three games this season! Joshua Dobbs is fourth in the NFL in completion percentage (72%) and is one of just four starting quarterbacks who hasn’t thrown an interception yet. (Brock PurdyC.J. Stroud and Justin Herbert are the others).

“We all thought the Cardinals were going to be the worst team in the NFL, but they absolutely are not. They are gritty, and held the Dallas Cowboys to just one touchdown in five red zone trips last week. The Cards were double-digit underdogs, yet came out and punched the Cowboys in the mouth. Give me that backdoor cover!” — CBS Sports writer Jordan Dajani on why he’ll take the Cardinals to keep their game with the 49ers within the number. To see all of his Week 4 picks, click here

Patriots at Cowboys

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET (FOX), stream on fubo (try for free
Open: Cowboys -7, O/U 42

“I’m not sure what rock bottom is in the NFL, but getting blown out by the Cardinals has to be pretty close. I mean, I’d rather give up 70 points in a game than get boat raced by the Cardinals. As someone who picked the Cowboys to make the Super Bowl this year, I have to say, I’m highly concerned with what I’ve seen so far. Sure, they’re 2-1, but after watching them play for three weeks, I’m starting to think their offense might not be that good. I’m not sure if it’s Dak Prescott’s fault or if it’s Mike McCarthy’s fault (now that he’s calling plays), but it’s someone’s fault. 

“In Week 1, the Cowboys beat the Giants 40-0, a score that makes it look like the offense had a huge game, but that’s not what happened. In that game, Dak Prescott didn’t even throw for 150 yards and he completed just 54.7% of his passes. That’s not great. In Week 2, the Cowboys beat the Jets 30-10. Once again, the score makes it look like the Cowboys offense rolled, but once again, that wasn’t the case. Dak was much better in that game, but the defense forced four turnovers, which is a big reason why the blowout happened. In Week 3, Dak got outplayed by a guy (Joshua Dobbs) who had only been with his team for ONE month before beating the Cowboys (Dobbs was traded to Arizona on Aug. 24). If your franchise QB gets outplayed by a quarterback who’s only been on his team for one month, that’s a problem. 

“What I’m trying to say here is that the Cowboys offense has been struggling all season and Bill Belchick is the last guy you want to face when your offense is struggling. I mean, Belichick devised a defense that held the Dolphins to 24 points in Week 2, which right now I think qualifies as one of the best game plans in NFL history considering the Dolphins put up 70 on Sunday. 

“I think Belichick out-coaches McCarthy and lets Ezekiel Elliott score two touchdowns on his old team in a game where the Patriots pull off the upset.” — CBS Sports writer John Breech on why he likes the Patriots to head into AT&T Stadium and pull off the upset over the Cowboys.

Chiefs at Jets

Open: Chiefs -7.5, O/U 43

R.J. White, a Fantasy and gambling editor for CBS Sports, has been extremely sharp with his against-the-spread picks and went 535-450-30 on his ATS picks from 2017-22, which returned more than $3,500 to $100 players. Now, White is zeroing in on this Sunday Night Football matchup between the Chiefs and Jets. White heads into this week 45-29-2 (+1397) on his last 76 picks in games involving New York, so you’ll certainly want to know which way he is rolling here. We can tell you he’s leaning Under the total and he’s found a critical X factor that has him jumping all over one side of the spread. To see what that is and White’s pick, head over to SportsLine.

Seahawks at Giants 

Time: Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET (ABC), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Giants -1, O/U 45.5

SportsLine’s Josh Nagel, a Nevada-based handicapper with more than 20 years of experience in the sports wagering industry, has been ridiculously sharp when it comes to the Seahawks. He’s gone 28-3 on his picks involving Seattle, returning $1,415 to $100 bettors. With that in mind, you’ll certainly want to get his insight into this latest matchup on Monday night. We can tell you he’s leaning Under the point total. but to see what side he is picking you’ll have to head to SportsLine.  

“We’re going to attack the trend of the Giants strugglingly mightily in prime time. The club is 1-13 SU in prime-time games since 2019 and Daniel Jones has been historically bad on this stage. The Giants QB is 1-11 in prime time and that .083 win percentage is the worst mark since the merger for a quarterback (min. 10 starts). Since 2017, New York is just 1-7 ATS at home in prime time and averaged just 12.8 points per game over that stretch. At this point, you have to tail that trend until the Giants give us a reason not to. Seattle’s defense has not been great so far this season, but its offense should be able to keep the Seahawks afloat here in a favorable spot.” — CBS Sports NFL writer Tyler Sullivan on why he is taking the Seahawks to upset the Giants on the road.
