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.

Last year at this time there was widespread panic about how NFL teams were struggling offensively to put up points. That hasn’t been a problem early on in 2018. There have been a number of teams lighting up the scoreboard and early on it’s been the Pat Mahomes and Ryan Fitzpatrick show. Mahomes has thrown for 582 yards with a 10 touchdowns and Fitzpatrick has thrown for 819 yards and 8 scores.

The Bucs and Chiefs are two of just seven teams that have made it out of the first two weeks without a loss. The most surprising thing is that Bucs are one of just two teams in the NFC without a loss, the other being the Rams, who look as good as advertised coming into the year.

Week 3 NFL Vegas Game Lines: Point Spreads & Betting Totals

Unfortunately none of those 2-0 teams are scheduled to face each other in Week 3, which means there’s a chance we could go into Week 4 with every team having at least one loss. Chances are at least a few of the undefeated teams will stay that way.

Week 3 will get started with a matchup between the Jets and Browns on Thursday Night Football. The other two prime-time games are the Patriots at the Lions on Sunday Night Football and the Bucs hosting the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

Some of the big games early on Sunday include the Saints at Falcons, 49ers at Chiefs, Colts at Eagles (Wentz back), Bengals at Panthers, Broncos at Ravens and Giants at Texans. The afternoon card will be headlined by the battle of LA, as the Rams host the Chargers.
