NFL Week 3 Betting Picks - 2018 Football Odds & Predictions

NFL Week Three PredictionsAnother loaded card is set to go in Week 3. We’ve now had two full weeks to put all 32 teams under the microscope, so you should have a better idea of what the teams are all about. Don’t make any final determinations just yet though.

The Cleveland Browns won’t be on many nationally televised games this season. Not after failing to tally a single win last season. However, they’re Week 3 tilt against the New York Jets will get the Thursday Night Football spotlight. Grab your barf bags now! All kidding aside, Hue Jackson just might have some talent at his disposal this season. We said that last year though too, right?

Sunday’s slate has a number of intriguing matchups lined up with the Saints and Falcons getting it on in Atlanta, and San Francisco heading to Kansas City to battle the Chiefs. The Tennessee/Jacksonville matchup won’t get much fanfare, but it could be one of the more intense battles of the Week 3 NFL betting slate.

The battle of Los Angeles headlines the afternoon card with the Chargers set to go into the Coliseum to take on the Rams. Each of the last two meetings between these in-state rivals has been decided by an average of 3.0 points per game. Each side boasts one of the better defenses in the league, so Philip Rivers and Jared Goff will likely have their hands full all afternoon.

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys for the third time in four tries last season when they went into “JerryWorld” and came out with the 21-12 outright win and cover. Dallas was held to just 282 total yards of combined offense. Seattle only mustered 136 total yards. Turnovers made a huge impact per usual with the Cowboys coughing it up three times while not forcing a single miscue. Revenge will no doubt be on the mind of the Boys on Sunday Night Football when they play in front of the 12th Man.

Closing the Week 2 NFL betting odds slate out will be Big Ben and the Pittsburgh Steelers who will travel to Tampa Bay to battle the Buccaneers under the ESPN Monday Night Football lights. The yellow and black have won and covered each of their last three visits to Raymond James Stadium, but the Bucs have covered four of the last five times they were installed underdogs in their own house. Pittsburgh split its eight road games versus the linemakers last season.

For everything you need to know about the Week 3 NFL betting lines, head over to Gamblers Palace where you’ll find everything from live odds to weekly free picks for all the games.

NFL Thursday, September 20, 2018

New York Jets at Cleveland Browns, FirstEnergy Stadium – 8:20 p.m. ET ( NFL Network )

Opening Line: Browns -3, 40.5

Preview: Man oh man when is the pain and excruciating pain going to end for Cleveland Browns fans? More importantly, when is the city going to get to indulge in free Bud Light? With the New York Jets set to invade FirstEnergy Stadium, the answer to both of those questions is Week 3. Continue...

NFL Sunday, September 23, 2018

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons, Mercedes-Benz Stadium – 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Falcons -3.5, 52.5

Preview: The New Orleans Saints have tried their damndest to ruin the hopes and dreams of all that participate in Survivor Pools through the first two weeks of the regular season. They likely won’t be a popular choice in Week 3 NFL betting when they invade Mercedes-Benz Stadium to tango with the division rival Atlanta Falcons. Continue...

San Francisco 49ers at Kansas City Chiefs, Arrowhead Stadium – 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Chiefs –4, 54.5

Preview: The Patrick Mahomes era has taken off which has caught the eye of many a NFL futures bettor. The Kansas City Chiefs odds to win Super Bowl LIII now sit at 12-1 after opening up with a 30-1 payoff. On the other side of the spectrum, the San Francisco 49ers odds to win it all have gone from 20-1 at the open to 35-1 after struggling to split its first two games. Continue...

Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins, Hard Rock Stadium, 1:00 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Dolphins -3, 44

Preview: The Miami Dolphins didn’t figure to be one of the better teams in the AFC East with it kicking the year off opening week with a 6.5 game season win total. But here we are in Week 3 and Ryan Gase’s underwhelming squad checks in 2-0 both straight up and against the NFL spreads. Because of it, they sit atop the standings of a division that had the New England Patriots installed runaway favorites to win it.

Buffalo Bills at Minnesota Vikings, U.S. Bank Stadium – 1:00 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Vikings -16, 41.5

Preview: It’s not often that you see a pointspread this lofty at this point in the season, but that’s the fate that stands before the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 as they hit the road for the Twin Cities where a highly motivated Minnesota Vikings squad will await. Continue... 

Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field - 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Eagles -6.5, 48

Preview: The Frank Reich era has gotten out to a tremendous start for the Indianapolis Colts who cashed as decided underdogs in D.C. last Sunday. Indy has cashed for NFL bettors four of the last six times they went off the board as road underdogs. Continue...

Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins – FedEx Field - 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Packers -3, 47.5

Preview: The Washington Redskins looked like world beaters after going into the desert and plowing through the Cardinals en route to logging their first dub of the NFL betting season. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to build off that momentum in a disappointing loss to the Colts last week. Continue...

Cincinnati Bengals at Carolina Panthers, Bank of America Stadium - 1:00 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Panthers -3, 44

Preview: The Cincinnati Bengals Week 3 tilt against the Carolina Panthers will mark the third straight game in which the NFL odds have been three points or less. It will also mark the first time Marvin Lewis’ squad will go off the board as underdogs. Continue...

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars, TIAA Bank Field - 1:00 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Jaguars -6.5, 39.5

Preview: The Jacksonville Jaguars went on to win the AFC South last season en route to making some major noise in the playoffs. However, the one team they had trouble solving the riddle for turned out to be the division rival Tennessee Titans who swept the season series on the NFL lines and went to the postseason themselves. Continue...

Denver Broncos at Baltimore Ravens, M&T Bank Stadium - 1:00 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Ravens -4.5, 44

Preview: For all intents and purposes, the Denver Broncos could enter this Week 3 tilt against the NFL lines with the Baltimore Ravens 0-2 instead of undefeated had things shook out a different way. Continue...

New York Giants at Houston Texans, NRG Stadium – 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Texans -6, 42

Preview: It’s very rare for a team that loses its first two games of the season to qualify for the playoffs. Both the New York Giants and Houston Texans will look to take one step closer towards defying the odds when they collide in Week 3 NFL betting action from NRG Stadium. Continue...

Los Angeles Chargers at Los Angeles Rams, LA Memorial Coliseum, 4:05 p.m. ET (CBS)

Opening Line: Rams -7, 48

Preview: The Battle of Los Angeles is set to go down in Week 3 NFL betting. The Los Angeles Rams ( +545 ) have looked like world beaters over their last six quarters of play so much so that they’ve leapfrogged the New England Patriots ( +745 ) to become the odds on favorites to win Super Bowl LIII. Continue...

Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals, U of Phoenix Stadium, 4:25 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Bears -4.5, 40

Preview: The Chicago Bears tallied the first win of the Matt Nagy era on Monday night when they handled the Seattle Seahawks with relative ease. They’ll look to claw over the .500 mark in Week 3 NFL betting action when they invade the desert looking to pile on an Arizona Cardinals squad that’s gotten out to a rough start to the Steve Wilks era. Continue...

Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink Field, 4:25 p.m. ET (FOX)

Opening Line: Cowboys -1, 41.5

Preview: The Seattle Seahawks will be stoked to get back in the comforts of their own stadium in Week 3 NFL betting after dropping their first two matchups of their 2018 campaign on the road. It remains to be seen if a change in venue will spark Pete Carroll’s club. Continue...

New England Patriots at Detroit Lions, Ford Field, 8:20 p.m. ET (NBC)

Opening Line: Patriots -6.5, 50

Preview: Fresh off its first loss of the NFL betting season, the New England Patriots head to Motown looking to take some frustration out on a familiar face. Matt Patricia’s debut as Detroit Lions head coach went terribly wrong against the New York Jets under the Monday night lights. Continue...

NFL Monday, September 24, 2018

Pittsburgh Steelers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 8:15 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Opening Line: Steelers -2, 50

Preview: So let me get this straight. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter their Week 3 tilt undefeated at 2-0 to go along with a pair of covers against the NFL betting odds. On the flipside, the Pittsburgh Steelers have failed to log wins in either of their first two games and stand 0-2 against the spread. On top of that, the locker room seems to be falling apart. Continue...
