I've been writing about the NFL and a host of other sports for the UK's top daily betting paper the Racing Post for more than 20 years. An incurable Browns fan (1-31 survivor), I also specialise in all kinds of motorsport betting including F1, MotoGP, IndyCar and NASCAR.

What an great weekend of sports that was, and Monday brings us an NFL game plus NBA, NHL, and college basketball slates to enjoy. Let’s get straight into it!

About Last Night

Chiefs back on track, Bucs are beaten in NFL Week 10
It was another wild NFL Sunday in Week 10. The Chiefs looked much more like themselves in a 41-14 thrashing of the Raiders, the Bills and Cowboys bounced back from Week 9 upsets, the Patriots crushed the Browns 45-7, and Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay lost 29-19 to +9.5 underdog Washington. Oh, yeah — and Cam Newton got off his couch to lead the Panthers to victory over the now-8-2 Cardinals. Fairly standard stuff these days! Amidst the madness, John Hyslop cashed a +1036 odds same game parlay on the Seahawks-Packers game! Check out all the news from Sunday’s events in Ricky Dimon’s review of what we saw in Week 10.

Hornets end Warriors’ 7-win streak
Surprise results weren’t limited to the NFL, as the NBA slate saw the Hornets end the Warriors’ 7-game winning run with a 106-102 success. Our NBA props expert JutPicks went 2-0 on Sunday’s props, taking the team’s weekend props record to 5-1.

Great day for NHL handicappers
The Pickswise NHL team went 5-1 on sides and 4-2 on totals in Sunday’s games, including cashing a pair of 3-star picks on the Bruins and Ducks, while our Sunday NHL parlay cashed at +398 odds!

Today’s Slate

OBJ primed for Rams debut on MNF
Monday Night Football could see the debut of Odell Beckham Jr. in a Rams uniform, as they take on the 49ers in the NFC West (ESPN, 8:15 pm ET). Beckham’s arrival could not be more timely after LA lost receiver Robert Woods to a serious injury on Friday, but Cooper Kupp, Tyler Higbee and Van Jefferson are likely to be Matthew Stafford’s top targets tonight. Check out our full preview of the game.

Enjoy 11 games in the NBA
We have a monster 11-game slate in the NBA tonight, including an NBA TV doubleheader with the Nuggets vs Mavericks at 8:00pm ET followed by Bulls vs Lakers at 10:30pm ET. Read our picks for all of today’s basketball.

Quality over quantity in the NHL
There are just 2 Monday games in the NHL, but all 4 teams in action have winning records, with the 5-4-2 Islanders taking on the 7-3-3 Lightning and the 8-3-2 Red Wings playing the 7-5-0 Blue Jackets. Both games are on ESPN+ at 7pm ET. Read our picks for all today’s NHL action.

Quality over quantity in the NHL
The first week of NCAA basketball has provided plenty of entertainment and we have picks for all today’s top college basketball games.

Best Bet of the Day

Los Angeles Rams -3.5 vs San Francisco 49ers
8:15 pm ET, ESPN

The Rams fell to the Titans as big favorites last week, but San Francisco’s loss to Arizona was much more embarrassing. The 49ers had the chance to turn their season around, and were gift-wrapped an opportunity at home against the Cardinals, who were playing without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. Instead, they got shredded by Colt McCoy. The 49ers also just lost starting right tackle Mike McGlinchey for the season, which is a big loss. Read our same game parlay (+845 odds!) for tonight’s game.

Must-watch

Start your week the right way by watching our daily show Let’s Bet It! with regular hosts Jared Smith, Lauren Jbara and Alex Glaze. Check it out at our YouTube channel at youtube.com/c/Pickswise later today as the team break down the day’s best bets, and look ahead to Monday Night Football and the rest of the sports betting week.

Must-read

We have you covered if you missed Sunday Night Football. Ricky Dimon looks into what we learned from the Chiefs’ win over the Raiders. We’re also already looking ahead to next weekend with Jared Smith finding the value on the early lines for this week’s football, while Ricky has also assessed the opening lines for this week’s college football.

Be sure to head over to the Analysis tab for even more great betting content.

Stat of the Day

The 49ers have lost 11 of their last 12 home games and have an overall 23-34 record at Levi’s Stadium.

Boost of the Day

Matthew Stafford to record 300+ passing yards

Rams QB Matthew Stafford looked worryingly like the Lions version of himself with his horrible picks against the Titans, but bettors who think he can bounce back against the 49ers on Monday Night Football can take him to pass for 300+ yards at enhanced odds with DraftKings Sportsbook, with a boost from +130 to +150.
