NFL Quick Picks

  • Jets vs Browns – Browns (SU -170)

NFL Pick of the Week – Week 3

Los Angeles Chargers vs Los Angeles Rams

Chargers vs Rams – Rams (-6.5, -114)

Two Los Angeles NFL clubs battle for the first time in the Super Bowl era, and to everyone’s surprise both the Rams and the Chargers field solid football franchises. However, the Rams are one of the elite teams in the NFL, expected to compete for a Super Bowl, while the Chargers fight for a playoff spot in the suddenly competitive AFC West.

These franchises have no head-to-head history and home advantage will be muted since both teams reside in the City of Angels. Still, the Rams have proven themselves as the team to beat in the NFC, with superior talent on both sides of the ball compared to the Chargers. A spread under a TD for the Rams represents great value.

NFL Moneyline of the Week

New York Jets vs Cleveland Browns

Bet Browns Moneyline (SU -170)

The Cleveland Browns have been the Picassos of losing, with a draw in week one and a 3-point loss in week two – both because of missed field goals and extra points. This obscures the fact that Cleveland’s defense is very solid. The Jets defeated the sleepy Lions in an impressive debut, but they came back to earth against the Dolphins. Bask in the glory of Cleveland’s first win in 19 games.

NFL Week 3 Best Betting Values

Vontae Davis stared into the void of Buffalo football and decided to literally retire during halftime – an unprecedented first.

Buffalo Bills vs Minnesota Vikings

The Bills season spirals downward faster than ever. Vontae Davis stared into the void of Buffalo football and decided to literally retire during halftime – an unprecedented first. Minnesota fired their kicker and hired noted vet Dan Bailey, reflecting the team’s fury of a week two tie with Green Bay due to missed field goals. The Vikings will take out their anger on Buffalo in front of a ravenous home crowd.

Bet Vikings -17

New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta’s offense doesn’t feature the shine of peak Matt Ryan, but the Falcons solid defense has quietly become the identity of this club. New Orleans were embarrassed on their own soil by Fitzmagic and the Buccaneers and needed the Browns to whiff two field goals to crawl away with a narrow win. A field goal spread on behalf of the Falcons in Atlanta represents superb ATS value, given the struggles of the Saints.

Bet Falcons -3

San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs

After rookie Sam Darnold ripped the Lions defense to shreds, the San Francisco 49ers let Jimmy Garoppolo get sacked six times in a narrow three point win over Detroit in California. A lack of QB protection will prove problematic against the Chiefs, who whipped the Steelers and the Chargers on the road. Kansas starter Patrick Mahomes looks like the truth while Hill and Hunt run circles around defenders. Choose the Chiefs ATS at -6.5 before the spread grows to a converted touchdown.

Bet Chiefs -6.5
