New Orleans Saints @ Green Bay Packers

(Sunday, September 24 - 1800 BST)

The Saints have made a solid start to the season, going 2-0 against the Panthers and Titans.

But the Titans were trash and the Panthers are 0-2 and were thrashed by the Falcons.

The Packers need to bounce back and they’re 15-7ATS on the back of a straight-up loss. The Saints are a solid ATS bet on the road but the line feels like an overreaction to form.


Los Angeles Chargers @ Minnesota Vikings

(Sunday, September 24 - 1800 BST)

Kirk Cousins has thrown for 344 and 364 yards through Week Two. After losing 17-20 to the Bucs, a game in which they should have converted better, the Vikings lost 34-28 to the Eagles.

The over is 19-7 following a loss for Minnesota and also 12-3 for the 0-2 Chargers, who lost 36-34 at home to the Dolphins and 27-24 to the Titans in overtime.


Atlanta Falcons @ Detroit Lions

(Sunday, September 24 - 1800 BST)

The 2-0 Falcons have been rolling on offence, beating the Carolina Panthers 24-10 and the Green Bay Packers 25-24.

This week they’ll visit the 1-1 Detroit Lions who shipped a ton of points in a 37-31 OT loss against the Seahawks.

While Detroit were the third worst defence in the league last season, they were top five on offence and we’re anticipating a fun game.
