Following a busy Saturday in the world of sports, Sunday won’t be quite as jam-packed since the NLCS did not require a Game 7. That gives center stage to a full slate of NFL action. And don’t forget about the NBA and NHL, as well. We also have a couple of games in both the English Premier League and Major League Soccer.

Let’s get straight to helping you make your next bet better!

About Last Night

Braves finish off Dodgers, World Series is set
It will be the Atlanta Braves vs the Houston Astros in the 2021 World Series after Atlanta beat the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night. The Braves took Game 6 by a score of 4-2, clinching the NL Pennant and avenging last year’s NLCS loss to Los Angeles. Houston is a -160 favorite to win it all; Atlanta is +130.

Top teams fail to impress on college gridiron
The top six spots in the college football rankings will remain unchanged, but the teams behind Georgia in College Football Playoff position failed to impress. Cincinnati scraped past Navy 27-20, Oklahoma survived a big scare against Kansas to win 35-23, and Alabama messed around with Tennessee for three quarters before prevailing 52-24. Georgia is a +120 favorite to win the National Championship.

Today’s Slate

Week 7 in the NFL
The London series is over for 2021 and there are six teams on a bye week, but there is still plenty of intrigue on offer this Sunday. Among the key afternoon contests are Chiefs vs Titans and Bengals vs Ravens before the 49ers host the Colts on Sunday Night Football. Before locking in your bet slip, be sure to take a look at our expert predictions for every NFL Week 7 game.

Nets, Warriors, Lakers all in action
Week one in the NBA is wrapping up with a six-game slate in which the stars will once again be out. Kevin Durant and the Nets, Stephen Curry and the Warriors, and LeBron James and the Lakers are among those taking the floor. Visit our NBA page for game previews, picks, same game parlays, and more.

Best Bet of the Day

Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens Under 46.5
1:00 pm ET, CBS

The Baltimore Ravens have won five games in a row since dropping their season opener to Las Vegas. They have held two of their last three opponents to 7 points or fewer. Baltimore also loves to run the ball, which keeps the clock moving and is conducive to low-scoring affairs. Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s defense has quietly been outstanding so far in 2021. We are all over the under in this one. Read our full game preview for Bengals vs Ravens.

Stat of the Day

The Titans are dead last in the NFL in receiving yards and touchdown catches allowed to the wide receiver position. They are second-to-last in the league in catches allowed to wide receivers. Needless to say, they could be in trouble against Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and a Chiefs offense that just pinned 397 yards through the air on the Football Team.

Boost of the Day

Patrick Mahomes to throw for 350+ passing yards and Chiefs to beat Titans
Boosted to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Chiefs vs Ravens is one of the marquee matchups of Week 7 and FanDuel is offering an odds boost to celebrate it. Mahomes throwing for at least 350 yards and also leading his team to a win has been boosted from +310 to +400.
