NFL football is finally in week 3, and betting starts to get serious. After very average weeks in week 1 and 2, I expect a big week 3. The good thing is, I love the board this week. A lot of lines to get excited about. Normally I would wait a little closer until Sunday to put this out, but I love the Thursday night game. Let’s get rolling.
Starting with that Thursday night game, I love teasing the Panthers down from -8 to -2. I was very high on Carolina coming into the year. I thought Darnold was going to shine in a new system and so far he has. Houston is so bad, and with Tyrod out, this game could get ugly. This is teased with the Chiefs down from -6.5 to -0.5. The Chiefs will not lose back to back games, especially at home. The Chargers are no bums, and I could see the first half being close, but KC pulls away.
Next teaser starts off with Arizona from -7.5 to -1.5. The Cards are kind of a confusing team. But they are a good team. Getting them down to basically even at home against a Jags team that has looked really bad, I love the spot. I have this teased with the Ravens. I am sure Trev Stone CEO is getting a little annoyed with me picking against the Lions, but if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it. The Ravens come down from -8 to -2. Baltimore wins this game with ease at home.
Two more favorites in this teaser. First we got Buffalo from -7.5 to -1.5. They are playing the WFT who is not bad. But Buffalo should win this game after getting back on track last week. They are teased with Denver and Teddy 2 gloves getting down from -11 to -5 against the Jets. The Jets looked piss poor last week. Zach Willson is a joke. The Broncos have jumped out to a 2-0 start and look to keep the hot start going.
The last teaser comes with 2 dogs. First is the Packers from +3.5 to +9.5 against the 49ers. GB looked like they figured out their issues against the Lions and will now be moving full steam ahead as they should. I may even sprinkle the moneyline, but I love getting 9.5. The other is Philly up from +4 to +10. They are playing Dallas, these NFC East teams play each other very tough and close. I again might take the moneyline, but I love getting 10.
Moving into straight bets now. First up I love Tennessee -5.5 against the Colts. I like this line even if Carson Wentz is playing, so with him out I love it. Tennessee should be able to really limit the Colts offense, while putting up points of their own with the monster run game.
Next I got Vegas -4 against the Dolphins. Very similar reasoning here. I like this line if Tua is playing, so I love it with him out. The Raiders have found something this season with Carr looking like an MVP QB, and the defense will be able to get the job done this week at home.
Speaking of MVP caliber QBs, we got 2 of them playing when Tampa faces off against the Rams. I am taking Tampa here -1.5. I am a Brady fan, and he looks as good as ever. I mean all the years I rooted for him on the Pats, and it looks like nothing has changed for him. This should be a really fun game, but you don’t get rich betting against Brady.
On the topic of my Patriots, they are my last play this week -3 against the Saints. As Mac Jones plays more games, he will only get better and more confident. That showed to be true against the Jets last week. Mac limits mistakes and takes what is given to him. The Saints looked like shit last week against Carolina. Go Pats.
Carolina -2, KC -0.5
Ravens -2, Cards -1.5
Bills -1.5, Denver -5
GB +9.5, Philly +10
