Plentifully -Chalk Shootout
Detroit @ New Orleans Over/Under: 51 Spread: NO -3
Is New Orleans playing? Yes. Does the other team have a poor defense as well? Yes. Boom, shootout. It isn’t that hard at this point in the season to find the juicy shootouts we are looking for as we can just use the two aforementioned questions to find the high scoring games. It’s also a very positive indicator this game hosts the highest Over/Under of the week at 51. What do you know, two Monday night hammer shootouts, two weeks in a row. Life is beautiful. Isn’t it?

Undercover Shootout of the Week
Atlanta @ Jacksonville Over/Under: 48 Spread: JAC -3.5
This is where the Falcons are at right now. Beginning the season 6-0, Atlanta has devolved to a dumpster fire that is dogs against the Jaguars, after being discussed in football circles as serious playoff contenders. Where bountiful fantasy goodness used to plentifully reside weekly, a wasteland void of money making prowess exists. I like the Georgia team to right the ship this week vs a horrid secondary of the Jags, allowing the eighth most pass yards per game. Oddly enough, we don’t have to worry about Jacksonville generating offense, with them coming into the game scoring the ninth most points per game at 25.1. Target all dominant pieces of the passing game on both sides.
