We managed only a 7-9 record in our first week of doing NFL predictions and definitely have some room for improvement in week 3. The biggest letdowns of week 2 were the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers who did not come close to covering the point spread, while some of our best wins were on the San Diego Chargers and the Buffalo Bills who we correctly predicted to win outright as underdogs. The week 3 NFL predictions and betting odds are below and we believe a big weekend is on the horizon.
NFL Record Year-to-Date: 7-9
Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles -3.5
The Eagles have absolutely no defense and their offense is going to be less and less effective as teams get video of them. Kansas City is largely improved on offense and has a legitimate defense. The wrong team is favored here.
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans -3.5
San Diego, like Kansas City, is terribly misread by the folks that make the betting odds for week 3. The Chargers are largely improved and the Titans still don't have an offense that can score points. Look for San Diego to win outright on the road.
Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings -6.5
Cleveland traded away Trent Richardson but they still have a strong defense that should keep Minnesota in a close game. The Vikings might only allow 6 points and still not cover the point spread here.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots -7
The Patriots looked bad last weekend but they will be able to run the football against the Buccaneers and I think they cover the point spread while looking a bit more like the New England team we are used to.
Houston Texans -2.5 at Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore is not a great team this season and their defense is down quite a bit. Houston's defense has also been worse than expected but I believe the Texans have the big edge offensively and will get the job done.
St. Louis Rams at Dallas Cowboys -4
Dallas has issues on both sides of the ball for what seems like the millioneth year in a row and I think the Rams can take advantage. St. Louis' offense is improving every week and their defense has never been a problem recently. Expect a close game.
Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints -7.5
New Orleans still has a poor defense and I think the Cardinals can score points here regardless of whether or not Larry Fitzgerald is at 100%. The Saints are going up against a good defense and I expect this game to be close with the Cardinals perhaps even pulling the outright upset.
Detroit Lions at Washington Redskins -2
The Redskins have been terrible on both sides of the ball so far but their offense should come around in this game. Detroit still hasn't fixed their defense and you should expect a high-scoring game with Washington coming out on top by 3 or 4 because of home field advantage.
Green Bay Packers -2.5 at Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals haven't impressed me much at all by barely squeaking by two teams they should be far better than. Green Bay will struggle to score a bit here but I think the Bengals make enough mistakes by turning the ball over that the Packers get a 6-point victory.
New York Giants at Carolina Panthers -1
Carolina is still a terrible team yet every week the odds makers show them a ton of respect for no apparent reason. New York doesn't have much of a defense but you can always count on Cam Newton to lose games with key fumbles and interceptions so I'll be on the Giants.
Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins -2.5
Everyone in the world is betting on the Falcons to cover the point spread odds in week 3 but there is a reason this line looks so off. It's because the Dolphins have a legitimate defense to go along with an improve offense and I'll take them as small favorites at home.
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers -10
The Colts won't be able to move the ball offensively and their defense is not good. Look for San Francisco to win 34-13 or so in a one-sided mismatch.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks -19.5
The Jaguars have absolutely no shot at scoring points against the Seahawks so the question is whether or not you believe Seattle can score 20 here. They should get great field position throughout and I'll say they can cover this big point spread.
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets -2.5
The Jets and Bills are both going to struggle to move the ball in this low-scoring game but ultimately I'll roll the dice and take New York because of home field advantage and a better defense.
Chicago Bears -2.5 at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers can't move the ball at all right now because of how injured and poor their offensive line is. Look for Chicago to struggle to score points as well and I'm going with the Steelers to pull off the upset at home in a game that could go either way.
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos -15
The Raiders aren't ready for the bright lights of Monday Night Football and will turn the ball over far too often to stay competitive. Denver will score on just about every drive until Peyton Manning and company get sat on the bench with a huge 4th quarter lead.
