Week 3 NFL Vegas Game Lines: Point Spreads & Betting Totals
There’s a lot that has taken place over the first two weeks of the season. Two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks suffered serious injuries in Week 2. Big Roethlisberger was lost for the year and Drew Brees is out 6 weeks. There’s also rumblings that Cam Newton might not play in Week 3
The two New York teams are also in the QB headlines. The Jets are down to 3rd stringer Luke Faulk after starter Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mono and backup Trevor Siemian was injured in his first start. The Giants have pushed the panic button after an 0-2 start and benched Eli Manning in favor of Daniel Jones.
That’s just the quarterback position. The Miami Dolphins have officially brought tanking to the NFL, you got star players like Jalen Ramsey demanding a trade, the Patriots looking unbeatable and Patrick Mahomes on pace to outperform his MVP season from a year ago.
There’s still 15 more weeks left in the season. Week 3 gets underway with the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.
On Sunday the big game that most will be talking about is the 2-0 Chiefs hosting the 2-0 Ravens, which will be centered around the QB matchup of Mahomes vs Lamar Jackson.
Other big games include Texans @ Chargers, Lions @ Eagles, Falcons @ Colts, Raiders @ Vikings and finally a Sunday night showdown with the Browns hosting the Rams. Finishing up things will be the Bears @ Redskins on Monday Night Football.
In terms of the odds, there are two massive favorites on the board with the Cowboys a 21.5-point home favorite against the Dolphins and the Patriots a 23.5-point home favorite against the Jets. There are 6 other teams who opened up at least a touchdown favorite. Only 5 games have a spread less than 4 points.
