Seattle (-3') at ATLANTA

By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper

My $1 players have made $30,442 the past 1028 days after back-to-back winners on Monday (500♦ Patriots) and Tuesday (200♦ Raptors).

Let's continue to bounce back, as I jump into the World Series with the total from Game 3, my 400♦ MLB Winner # 15 of 23.

We saw the Nationals crush Gerrit Cole, and the Astros respond late to help Game 1 soar past the number. Tonight, two of the best lineups in baseball face two of the best starters in the league.

Only one way to go with this one.

My complimentary winner for Sunday is on the Seattle Seahawks, who travel to Atlanta for a clash with the Falcons. And as I always insist, with football favorites in this range, we're buying half points. And if this game is in between -2.5 and -4.5 points, I want you purchasing the half point down.

I honestly can't believe what I'm seeing from the Falcons, but I do think I am right in saying this team has never recovered from blowing that halftime lead to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

The Falcons are now 1-6, quarterback Matt Ryan is dinged up, and the team has yet to show one sign they can turn this season around. Realistically, they would need to go 9-0 to contend for a wildcard.

How bad is it for the Falcons? The Los Angeles Rams sacked Ryan five times on Sunday, which equals the total number of sacks by Atlanta's horrendous defense through seven games. Ryan is either being held out or being limited in practice this week, and has not been ruled out for this week's game.

Won't matter.

This team is bad.

Russell Wilson, on the other hand, has the Seahawks playing well, and in must-win mode since they're two games back of the surging San Francisco 49ers.

Some say Wilson can contend for the MVP this year. I think he can contend for Comeback Player of the Year.

He and receiver Tyler Lockett have a nice chemistry going, as Lockett had five receptions in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Seahawks will be driven in this one, as they can't afford to fall further back. They're on the road, yes, but they face a team that can't do anything right on either side of the ball.

Take Seattle.

Carolina at SAN FRANCISCO (-5')

By Tony Weston, Featured Handicapper

After watching the first three quarters of the Lakers-Clippers, it was looking pretty good. Then they fell asleep offensively, pressed too much with their shots and stayed well under the total.

I've still won 5 of 7 days, and tonight I'm back on the hardwood with the biggest blowout on the entire card.

If there is one play you need to add to your mix tonight, it's this game.

TONIGHT IS TWICE AS STRONG

COMPLIMENTARY WINNER

My free NFL winner for Sunday is on the San Francisco 49ers, over the visiting Carolina Panthers.

I'm a big believer of the 49ers, and have been since the preseason. I've got money on them to go Over with their win total, and think they have a good chance to represent the NFC in February.

As good as New England is, I think the Niners are just as balanced on both sides of the ball, and that's where they'll get the best of these Panthers. I know Carolina is off a bye week, but traveling into hostile territory, from one coast to the other, is going to be tough.

You saw how tough the 49ers had it last week in D.C., right? San Francisco won 9-0 over Washington, but I'm not holding that against the 49ers, who had to play in yucky weather. Yes, I used the word yucky.

What continues to work for San Francisco is its pass defense, which will get to young Kyle Allen, who was named the starting quarterback on Monday.

The Niners stifled Washington's Case Keenum to just nine completions and 77 total yards passing while registering three sacks for 27 yards. It was the second straight game the Niners have allowed 50 or fewer net yards passing.

On the other hand, I expect Jimmy Garoppolo to throw the ball better than he did last week, when he was dealing with rainy conditions and wet footballs. Garoppolo finished just 12 for 21 for 151 yards with an interception on a fourth-down pass in the third quarter.

He'll need balance from his running game since Carolina's strength on defense is stopping the pass, and it leads the league with 27 sacks.

That shouldn't be a problem, as the Niners have the best rushing game in the NFC and second-best in the league, averaging 172.7 yards per game, while scoring eight touchdowns on the ground.

By controlling the tempo with a horizontal game to wear down Carolina's defense, and stuffing the Panthers on offense, the 49ers will pull away for the win and cover.

Oakland (+6') at HOUSTON

By Jack Brayman, Featured Handicapper

Posted by 3 p.m. eastern on weekdays; 10 a.m. eastern on weekends.

My $10 bettors have won $33,130 the past 566 days after hitting yet another 200 Dimer, this one being the Washington Nationals (+175) against the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the World Series.

I didn't just take a shot with the Nationals, I definitively broke down how Gerrit Cole would get rocked, and that Max Scherzer was the better pitcher in the matchup, and that I was confident Washington would steal Game 1.

I also delivered a 200 Dimer on Monday with the New England Patriots (33-0) over the New York Jets. I also delivered a 200 Dime Winner on Sunday with the Jacksonville Jaguars getting it done (27-17) over the Cincinnati Bengals. I also delivered a 200 Dime Winner on Friday with the Pittsburgh Panthers (27-20) over the Syracuse Orange.

In all, 10 straight winning days, including my four 200 Dimers, and tonight I open the NBA campaign with a solid winner.

You do know who the best NBA handicapper at this site is, right? I've made  $10 bettors $21,820 the last two seasons combined, and come into this season having won four of my last five 200 Dime releases.

And tonight I love the Northwest Division matchup between Denver and Portland, as the two mix it up in Oregon. It's a damn near pick'em. My side wins by at least eight points.

Let's carry the momentum into Wednesday night, with Winning Day # 11 in a Row.

My free play for Sunday is on the Oakland Raiders, catching points at the Houston Texans.

I understand the Raiders' defense was picked apart by the Green Bay Packers last week. That's clear and evident. But I also know the Raiders have traveled more than any other team in the league thus far, haven't played at home since mid-September, have been to London, and at the very least, have looked competitive in some parts of every game.

If there is one coach who can break down film, and correct things for the following week, while breaking down the opposition's weakness - it's Jon Gruden.

The only thing I can say about last Sunday is Aaron Rodgers was flawless. He threw for 429 yards and five touchdowns while posting a perfect passer rating of 158.3 - the first time any quarterback ever acheived that in franchise history.

I don't think Deshaun Watson is going to do that, and I do think the Raiders will come in angry and prepared for this game.

I'm hoping Oakland's first-year running back Josh Jacobs has a couple of more breakout games and gets involved in the Rookie of the Year convo.

He was the bright spot, and ran for 124 yards to become the first Raiders rookie with back-to-back 100-yard games ever. Jacobs leads all rookies with 554 yards on the ground and four rushing touchdowns. He has the most yards rushing in franchise history over his first six career games. He will be a challenge for the Texans' defense.

In his defense, quarterback Derek Carr turned in one of the most efficient games of his career, completing 22 of 28 pass attempts for 293 yards and two touchdowns, while posting the second-highest yards per attempt in his career.

Red zone turnovers were the issue. Those are correctable mistakes. I trust we're going to see a better-prepared Oakland team this time around, and one that could receive three key players back in the lineup.

Take the road pup in this one. And as I will always do with underdogs catching anywhere between +6 and +7, I want you buying the half point up.
