NFL Betting Bullet Points for Week 3

  • The O/U was 8-8 in Week 2
  • Five games decided by double-digit scores
  • Five games decided by a field goal or less

Best NFL ATS Picks Week 3

Carolina Panthers -3.0 (-110) vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati’s Week 1 and Week 2 performances have NFL sportsbooks listing the Bengals as only a three-point underdog against the Panthers. These two teams have only played each other five teams in NFL history, with their most recent meeting (in 2014) ending in a 37-37 point tie.

The Panthers are a 5-4 ATS at home since 2017, 3-1 ATS since 2017 against non-Conference opponents (with an average margin of victory of 10.2) and 5-2 S/U as a home favourite. Bet on Cam Newton and the Panthers to win against the Bengals who are without running back Joe Mixon (236 total yards and a TD in his first two games).  

New England Patriots -6.5 (-115) vs. Detroit Lions

Betting against the Patriots is a rarely a good wager, but betting against the Patriots following a loss is almost a guaranteed loss. New England is 18-6 ATS following a loss and 20-4 S/U. Also, Bill Belichick is 17-5 all-time versus former coaches on his staff. Take the Patriots to rebound from their Week 2 loss and dispatch the Detroit Lions.

Best NFL Moneyline Picks Week 3

Los Angeles Rams (-305) vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Two weeks into the season, the Los Angeles Rams look like the best team in football. The Rams are allowing a league-low 6.50 points per game, topped 30 points in each of their wins and are tied for the fewest turnovers committed.

Their opponent, the Los Angeles Chargers, are a quality team. However, they are still without Joey Bosa, who is their best defensive player. Without him, it is hard to bet on the Chargers to win against a high-quality opponent on the road.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+105) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Rolling with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers right now is not a bad call. The Bucs are averaging 482.50 yards per game, most in the NFL. The Buccaneers face a Pittsburgh Steelers defence on Monday night that gave up six passing touchdowns in Week 2.

While the Steelers are 6-0-1 S/U in their last seven road games, it is hard to put too much faith in the Steelers after watching them during the previous two games. There are signs the team is starting to implode, with players and coaches arguing on the sidelines. Until they prove they can string together some efficient games (without Le’Veon Bell), the Steelers are one of the more overvalued teams in the NFL. 

Best NFL Over/Under Picks Week 3

Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings Over 41.0 (-110)

Through the Buffalo Bills first two games, the team is giving up an average of 39.0 points to opponents. The Minnesota Vikings have plenty of talent on offence and should score early and often against the Bills. The Bills can, as they did in Week 2, put up some garbage time points, which should help this game hit the over.

Oakland Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins Under 44.0 (-110)

While the Oakland Raiders offence showed a bit more gusto in Week 2 when you break down their attack, it was primarily little dink, and dunk passes. This type of strategy can move the ball down the field but rarely results in high scoring games.

Oakland, when playing non-Divisional opponents since 2017 has a 4-7 on the over/under. The Miami Dolphins are averaging 23.5 points to start the season but is not the most reliable offence in the NFL. Look for a lower scoring game and take the under.
