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!
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.

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.

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.

Stat of the Day
