Week 1: Detroit Lions vs Kansas City Chiefs (9/7/23)
Lions +6.5 (+100) @ Chiefs -6.5 (-120)
The Chiefs struggled to match the high expectations placed on them by Vegas bookmakers, as evidenced by their 2-7 ATS record as the home favorite. Despite the Lions’ improvements last season, they still only managed to go 3-4 ATS as road underdogs.
Jared Goff only has one career game against the Chiefs, dating back to the 2018 season when he was on the Rams. In that game, he passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns.
Week 2: Minnesota Vikings vs Philadelphia Eagles (9/14/23)
Vikings +6 (-110) @ Eagles -6 (-110)
Minnesota fared well as road underdogs last season, posting a 3-1 ATS record. Philadelphia was more of a mixed bag, going 6-5 as the home favorite.

Giants +4.5 (-110) @ 49ers -4.5 (-110)
The Giants struggled last season as underdogs on the road with a 3-6 ATS record. The 49ers weren’t much better as the home favorite with a 5-5 ATS record.
Daniel Jones will be looking to improve on his career numbers against San Francisco. In his one game against them back in 2020, he passed for 179 yards, no TDs, and one INT.
Week 4: Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers (9/28/23)
Lions -1.5 (-110) @ Packers +1.5 (-110)
The Packers went 1-0 ATS as home underdogs last season. The Lions were also 1-0 ATS as the away favorite. Detroit started the regular season 1-6 ATS and finished 8-2 ATS over their last 10.
Jordan Love did not have more than 10 pass attempts in any game last year. He did have one start in his 2021 rookie season, a 13-7 loss to the Chiefs, where he passed for 190 yards, one TD, and one INT.
Week 5: Chicago Bears vs Washington Commanders (10/5/23)
Bears +1.5 (-110) @ Commanders -1.5 (-110)
The Bears underwhelmed with a 5-10 ATS record as the underdog. The Commanders were 2-2 ATS as the home favorite. Chicago led the NFL with 3,014 rushing yards, 5.4 yards per carry, and eight rushes of 40-plus yards.
Terry McLaurin led Washington with 1,191 receiving yards, yet six players had at least 27 receptions, and all six also saw 40 or more targets.
Week 6: Denver Broncos vs Kansas City Chiefs (10/12/23)
Broncos +7 (-110) @ Chiefs -7 (-110)
As bad as the Broncos were last year, they went 6-3 ATS as underdogs. And in spite of winning Super Bowl LVII, the Chiefs were 6-10-1 when favorites.
Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton combined for 131 receptions, 1,801 yards and eight receiving TDs—solid totals when considering the troubles this offense endured. Sean Payton should do wonders.
Week 7: Jacksonville Jaguars vs New Orleans Saints (10/19/23)
Jaguars -1 (-110) @ Saints +1 (-110)
Jacksonville was 1-0 ATS as the away favorite. New Orleans struggled ATS when viewed as a whole; however, they were a decent 6-5 ATS in non-division games.
Against five AFC opponents last year, Alvin Kamara had 499 total yards and four touchdowns. He should meet minimal resistance against a defense that ranked 26th in defensive DVOA on Football Outsiders.
Week 8: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Buffalo Bills (10/26/23)
Buccaneers +10 (-110) @ Bills -10 (-110)
The Bucs struggled mightily ATS in 2022, going just 4-12-1. As the home favorite, the Bills were nearly as bad, going 3-6 ATS.
Stefon Diggs had seven games with at least 92 yards through Week 10 last year. In his final seven games, he reached that total twice.
Week 9: Tennessee Titans vs Pittsburgh Steelers (11/2/23)
Titans +4 (-110) @ Steelers -4 (-110)
Tennessee went 4-2 ATS as the away underdog last season, and Pittsburgh wasn’t far behind with a 3-2 ATS record as the home favorite. The Steelers’ defense allowed only 0.4 rushing TDs per game, best in the NFL.
In two career games against the Steelers, Derrick Henry is averaging 53.5 rushing yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He’ll have his hands full against a top-10 run defense.
Week 10: Carolina Panthers vs Chicago Bears (11/9/23)
Panthers +2 (-110) @ Bears -2 (-110)
Chicago managed just a 0-1-1 ATS record as home favorites. Carolina was a surprising 9-4 ATS as the underdog. The Bears must improve defensively, as they were ranked last in points allowed per game (27.2).
The Panthers’ offense has been completely overhauled and now welcomes a host of new starters, including QB Bryce Young, RB Miles Sanders, TE Hayden Hurst, and wideouts D.J. Chark, and Adam Thielen.
Week 11: Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens (11/16/23)
Bengals -1 (-110) @ Ravens +1 (-110)
The Bengals went 5-2 ATS as the away favorite. The Ravens were 0-0-1 when the home underdog.
Joe Burrow and Cincinnati ranked seventh in red-zone scoring (63.6%) and points per game (25.7). Baltimore will challenge that efficiency as they allowed the third-fewest points per game (18.8).
Week 12: San Francisco 49ers vs Seattle Seahawks (11/23/23)
49ers -1.5 (-110) @ Seahawks +1.5 (-110)
San Francisco was a perfect 7-0 ATS in divisional games. Seattle was just 2-5 ATS in divisional games. The 49ers finished in the top 10 in a ton of meaningful offensive metrics, including points per game (25.9, sixth), yards per game (359.9, fifth), and third-down conversion rate (45.08%, fifth).
Getting Kenneth Walker III going is the key to the Seattle offense. He had 47 rushing yards and 32 receiving yards in Week 15 against the 49ers. He finished the regular season with three straight 100-yard games on 20+ carries.
Week 13: Seattle Seahawks vs Dallas Cowboys (11/30/23)
Seahawks +3.5 (-110) @ Cowboys -3.5 (-110)
Seattle is scheduled for back-to-back Thursday night games. In the second game, they face the Cowboys, a team that posted a 5-2 ATS record as the home favorite.
Look for the Cowboys to establish Tony Pollard early. Seattle ranked third worst in rush yards allowed per game (151.9) and 25th in 24.6 points allowed per game.
Week 14: New England Patriots vs Pittsburgh Steelers (12/7/23)
Patriots +1.5 (-110) @ Steelers -1.5 (-110)
New England was 2-4 as the home underdogs last season. Pittsburgh was 3-2 as the home favorite. It’s tough sledding moving the ball against the Patriots, as their 4.1 yards per carry against ranked fourth, and their 61.07% completion percentage allowed ranked fifth.
Three Steelers pass-catchers totaled 700 or more receiving yards: Diontae Johnson (882), George Pickens (801), and Pat Freiermuth (732).
Week 15: Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders (12/14/23)
Chargers -1.5 (-110) @ Raiders +1.5 (-110)
The Chargers went 4-2 ATS as the away favorite. Meanwhile, the Raiders matched them by going 4-2 ATS in divisional games.
Los Angeles has to step up their run game. They ranked near the bottom of the league in every meaningful statistic with just 3.7 yards per carry (30th) and 88.4 rush yards per game (30th).
Week 16: New Orleans Saints vs Los Angeles Rams (12/21/23)
Saints +1 (-110) @ Rams -1 (-110)
The Rams were 1-4 ATS as the home favorite. New Orleans was an even 3-3 ATS as the away underdogs. Los Angeles can’t get much worse offensively, as they finished with 280.5 yards per game (worst) and a disappointing 18.1 points per game (27th).
L.A. should put forward a big dose of Cam Akers this season. He finished the regular season with three straight 100-yard games and three touchdowns.
Week 17: New York Jets vs Cleveland Browns (12/28/23)
Jets -1 (-110) @ Browns +1 (-110)
The Browns went 2-1 ATS as the home underdog, but struggled in non-division games with a 4-7 ATS record. The Jets split conference games, going 6-6 ATS, and delivered a 5-4 ATS record on the road.
Cleveland has to lean hard on the basics in 2023: Nick Chubb and the running game. In games where he was given 20 or more carries last season, the Browns went 5-1.
