NFL Betting Picks (WEEK 3)

Tonight’s Titans/Jags matchup at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville marks the beginning of Week 3 of the NFL season, and if you’re very in the hole like I am, it can’t come soon enough.

I’ve heard a lot of talk about how this week’s slate of games looks menacing, which was a little confusing to me because I actually felt pretty good locking in these picks. It’s that good feeling that has me a little worried, because I can’t have another repeat of Week 1.

Anyway, let’s take a look at who I’m going with for Week 3.

THURSDAY

Tennessee Titans (-1.5) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (+1.5): TITANS -1.5

SUNDAY

Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) @ Indianapolis Colts (-2.5): FALCONS +2.5

Detroit Lions (+6.5) @ philadelphia Eagles (-6.5): EAGLES -6.5 

Miami Dolphins (+21.5) @ Dallas Cowboys (-21.5): COWBOYS -21.5

Oakland Raiders (+7.5) @ Minnesota Vikings (-7.5): RAIDERS +7.5

Cincinatti Bengals (+5.5) @ Buffalo Bills (-5.5): BILLS -5.5

New York Jets (+22.5) @ New England patriots (-22.5):pATRIOTS -22.5

Denver Broncos (+7.5) @ Green Bay packers (-7.5): pACKERS -7.5

Baltimore Ravens (+6.5) @ Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5): CHIEFS -6.5

Carolina panthers (-2.5) @ Arizona Cardinals (+2.5): CARDINALS +2.5 

NY Giants (+6.5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6.5): NY GIANTS +6.5

New Orleans Saints (+5.5) @ Seattle Seahawks (-5.5): SEAHAWKS -5.5

Houston Texans (+3.5) @ LA Chargers (-3.5): TEXANS +3.5

pittsburgh Steelers (+6.5) @ San Francisco 49ers (-6.5): 49ERS -6.5

LA Rams (-2.5) @ Cleveland Browns (+2.5): LA RAMS -2.5

MONDAY

Chicago Bears (-4.5) @ Washington Redskins (+4.5): BEARS -4.5


2 weeks into this NFL season I am 11-21 on picks, so I can only improve from here (At least I hope so).

Like I said above, I felt oddly confident about my picks this week, which has me feeling both nervous and optimistic. I’m nervous because another repeat of Week 1 would bankrupt me, but I’m optimistic because something about these picks felt right.

Something new that I’m going to start doing in these blogs is including what parlays I craft up each week. This week I made 2 serious parlays and 1 “Fuck it” parlay. In all seriousness none of them will probably hit, but it would help my bank account greatly if they did.

Parlay 1: Titans -2, Chiefs -7, Texans +3, Seahawks -4, Rams -3 (+2,626 Odds)

Parlay 2: NY Giants +7, Texans +3, Seahawks -4, 49ers -7, Rams -3 (+2,517 Odds)

Parlay 3: Chiefs -7, Bills -6, Falcons +2, Packers -8, Eagles -7, Cowboys -21.5, Patriots -23, Raiders +8 (+19,294 Odds)

And there you have it: My picks and parlays for Week 3. All there is to do now is sit back and hope I don’t lose a billion dollars again like in Week 1.

I’m finishing up my Draft Kings blog for Week 3 right now, so be on the lookout for that soon.
