Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)

Open: Bengals -3.5, O/U 47

"At three I like the Bengals, so the Bengals -3 are a best bet. The new-look Baltimore offense never got going against Houston despite the score looking like it did with all those points, and Cincy's offense, they're always bad in Cleveland. Last year they had 220-something yards of offense, they went out the next week and scored 42 points. I don't think this is indicative of the Cincy team we're going to see throughout the rest of the year, and the weather didn't help last week. Cincy's pass defense was solid, the rush defense goes from facing Nick Chubb to Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and an injured offensive line that probably is going to be without Ronnie Stanley and Tyler Linderbaum in this game. Key injures for the Ravens already rearing their ugly head like they do every year for the Ravens somehow."

That's R.J. White's take from the Pick Six Podcast, where he, Will Brinson, Katie Mox and Alex Selesnick broke down every NFL game this week. Subscribe below for great NFL content every single day.

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)

Open: Bears -1, O/U 44.5

"The lookahead line had the Bears favored here but featured a big swing after the Bucs upset the Vikings and the Bears laid an egg. The latter was in line with my expectations for the Bears entering the season, but what if they aren't as bad as they looked last week? And I don't think the Bucs looked particularly good or even deserved to come out of that game with a win. My number for this game is Bucs -1.5, so there's decent value on the Bears already, and pushing them up to +8.5 is the best teaser move you can make as you not only capture the 3, 4, 6 and 7 but also the 8, which is a more common number in recent years."

That's SportsLine expert R.J. White, who finished up more than 35 units on NFL ATS picks from 2017-22. He likes the Bears as a teaser leg this week. To check out his other picks, head on over to SportsLine.

Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)

Open: Falcons -1, O/U 42

"It's, of course, too early to make any definitive stamps on teams for the season, but the Packers (more specifically Jordan Love) confirmed a lot of what I had hoped he'd be in Week 1. Yes, he completed 55.5% of his passes in the opener, but he was making some elite throws in that win over Chicago, including three touchdown passes. And that was without No. 1 option Christian Watson. As for the other quarterback in this game, I wasn't overly impressed by Falcons QB Desmond Ridder, despite his 83.3 completion percentage in the win over Carolina. I think Green Bay has the more explosive offense and that could prove to be too much for Ridder to keep pace with. Meanwhile, Love is 2-0 ATS in his two career starts and the Falcons are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as an underdog."
