Good morning, Pickswise Nation, and welcome to another tremendous Tuesday of sports. We have a full MLB slate to enjoy today and plenty to chew over after last night’s NFL action, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better.
About Last Night
Saints and Steelers win, Browns lose Chubb
The overlapping Monday night NFL doubleheader produced plenty of incidents but not much in terms of high-quality football. First, the Saints moved to 2-0 by winning a scrappy contest against the Panthers 20-17, with Carolina scoring a late TD to deny the Saints’ -3 spread backers and force a push. The later game between the Browns and Steelers produced drama from the outset with a Deshaun Watson pick-6 on the first play, and the Steelers scored a second defensive TD late on to win 26-22. The game was overshadowed, however, by a season-ending knee injury sustained by Browns running back Nick Chubb.
The Saints are +2800 odds for the Super Bowl at FanDuel after moving level with the Buccaneers and Falcons in the NFC South. They are +125 favorites for the division with the Falcons at +150 and the Bucs at +420. The Steelers’ win saw the Ravens’ odds for the AFC North come in to -110, with the Browns out to +360, the 0-2 Bengals at +440 and the Steelers at +500.
