Just like that two weeks are in the books and we shift our attention to Week 3. I’ve put together a full schedule with the start times and updated odds for each contest. We will also be adding links to our individual game previews throughout the week. Each preview will give readers a free betting lean on either the spread or total of that matchup.
The big focal point for 2017 has been the struggle of so many teams to score points. It’s led to some difficult games to watch. A lot of it has to do with horrific play on the offensive line. It’s going to be interesting to see if teams can figure it out or if this remains a theme for the entire season.
Week 3 NFL Vegas Game Lines: Point Spreads & Betting Totals
I’m sure most of you have heard the statistics on making the playoffs for teams that have started out 0-2. For those of you that aren’t, just 12% of teams that start 0-2 have made the postseason, since the NFL went to a 12-team format back in 1990. There’s plenty of teams trying to break that trend, as 9 different teams have started 0-2. The most surprising names on that list are the Giants, Bengals and Chargers.
On the flip side of that, there are 10 teams who have yet to lose in 2017. Though both the Dolphins and Buccaneers are at just 1-0. Only one game on tap for Week 3 pits two of the undefeated teams against each other. That’s Sunday’s early afternoon matchup that has the Lions hosting the Falcons.
The week starts off with a less than enticing Thursday Night game with the 49ers hosting the Rams. Sunday Night Football should be worth tuning in, as the Raiders visit the Redskins. Week 3 will conclude with the Cowboys at the Cardinals. It’s also worth noting that we have a London game this week, so action starts early on Sunday with the Ravens vs Jaguars.
