Titans (6-3) at Ravens (6-3)
Opening line: Ravens -6.5
The Ravens are just 6-11 ATS in home games and just 2-5 ATS in the past seven games where they were 7-point favorites or higher. The last time these two teams met came in was in the 2019 playoffs when the Titans pulled off a major upset and covered as a 10-point underdog.

Cowboys (2-7) at Vikings (3-5)
Opening line: Vikings -8
The Vikings have actually been one of the safest bets in the NFL recently, going 6-1 ATS in their past seven games after their win against the Bears on Monday Night Football. The Cowboys are a different story and are 1-8 ATS on the season, which is the worst in the NFL. Their only cover came when they were a 14.5-point underdog.
Chiefs (8-1) at Raiders (6-3)
Opening line: Chiefs -6.5
Reid has been nearly unbeatable off a bye in his career (18-3 straight-up), so it might be worth banking on the Chiefs. Since November 2015, the Chiefs have gone 29-3 straight up against divisional opponents and 22-9-1 ATS and 10-2 straight-up against the Raiders.
Monday Night Football
Rams (6-3) at Buccaneers (7-3)
