NFL Week 3 Picks - Picks for every Week 3 matchup

Posted by BetOnline Staff on 9/28/2009 9:07:07 AM
online football bettingOnline sports betting players have been watching NFL teams settle into the season, which makes it a bit easier to make your NFL theory. Here’s what we think is going to happen in Week 3:

Washington Redskins @ Detroit Lions
The Redskins’ offense is absolutely atrocious, and they’ll struggle to score points against even the lowly Lions, who are improved, but Matt Stafford still has a way to go before he’s a serviceable NFL pivot.

NFL Week 3 picks: Redskins -6.5

Green Bay Packers @ St. Louis Rams
Speaking of awful, the Rams have scored seven points in two games, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get better. The Packers are coming off an upset home loss to Cincinnati. This doesn’t look pretty for St. Louis fans, all three of you.

NFL Week 3 picks: Packers -6.5

San Francisco 49ers @ Minnesota Vikings
The winner of the Adrian Peterson-Frank Gore duel will lead his team to victory. At home, and with the “Williams Wall” shutting down Gore, look for the Vikings to go 3-0.

NFL Week 3 picks: Vikings -7

Atlanta Falcons @ New England Patriots odds
The Falcons have looked a little like, dare we say, the Patriots, in their first two games of the season. New England knows they haven’t played to their potential, and people forget Tom Brady missed an entire season of football. The Patriots are also beasts at home.

NFL Week 3 picks: Patriots -4

Tennessee Titans @ New York Jets odds
Are the Jets for real? That defense looked insane during their win over the Patriots last week. Las week’s test was Brady and the New England aerial attack. This week, it’s Chris Johnson and the Tennessee ground game. Johnson went for 197 yards against Houston, but the Jets aren’t the Texans.

NFL Week 3 picks: Jets -2.5

Kansas City Chiefs @ Philadelphia Eagles
This game is still off the sports betting board due to the status of Donovan McNabb, but the big story here is the return of Michael Vick, and a defense that looks for redemption after getting lit up by New Orleans last week. Kevin Kolb even looked decent.

NFL Week 3 picks: Eagles

New York Giants @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are a mess, and the Giants ruined Dallas’ debut in their new stadium. Tampa Bay is 31st in defense, and may end up making the Giants look like the 2007 Patriots (before they lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl, of course).

NFL Week 3 picks: Giants -7

Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens
This will be the beatdown of the week. The Ravens’ defense shut down San Diego when it needed to, so they’ll have no problem with the sad Browns at home.

NFL Week 3 picks: Baltimore -13

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans odds
You know it’s bad in Jacksonville when they’re already talking about drafting Florida’s Tim Tebow. Meanwhile, Matt Schaub-to-Andre Johnson may be the most underrated duo in the NFL.

NFL Week 3 picks: Houston –3.5

New Orleans Saints @ Buffalo Bills odds
The Bills should just be aiming to keep Drew Brees and the Saints under 30 points. We’re also still not sold on the Buffalo offense.

NFL Week 3 picks: Saints -4.5

Chicago Bears @ Seattle Seahawks
Matt Hasselbeck has a fractured rib, which is why the Seahawks are underdogs at home. The Bears are playing with a chip on their shoulder, and Jay Cutler is getting more comfortable with his receivers.

NFL Week 3 picks: Bears -1.5

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers
The Dolphins must be crushed by last week’s loss to Indianapolis, holding the ball for over 45 minutes. The Chargers gave one game away against the Ravens last Sunday, but not this week.

NFL Week 3 picks: Chargers -6.5

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals
It’s always fun when these AFC North rivals get together, and an improved Cincy squad has to be boosted by an upset in Green Bay. Meanwhile, when did the Steelers forget how to run the ball? Take the Bengals’ NFL betting line.

NFL Week 3 picks: Bengals +4

Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders – 4:15 PM ET
Another division rivalry, no matter how bad these teams are. If someone would have said that the Broncos would be 2-0, they’d be laughed out of the room. 3-0? Get the straightjacket ready.

NFL Week 3 picks: Broncos +1

Indianapolis Colts @ Arizona Cardinals odds – 8:20 PM ET
Peyton Manning against Kurt Warner may be the best matchup of the weekend, and these defenses could be in for a long night. Go with the home team.

NFL Week 3 picks: Cardinals -2

Carolina Panthers @ Dallas Cowboys – 8:30 PM ET
What do you know, Jake Delhomme didn’t implode against Atlanta. Tony Romo did against the Giants, though. The Cowboys may win, but they won’t cover this massive spread in your offshore sportsbook.

NFL Week 3 picks: Panthers +9
