NFL Week 3 Betting Odds
Big thanks to BetOnline for the below lines. They'll have you covered for all betting needs ahead of Sunday!
Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles (-6)
Carson Wentz returns under center for Philadelphia (1-1) for the first time since tearing his ACL last December. However, the real question is will Wentz look anything like his 2017 self that threw 33 touchdowns and 3,286 yards?
He shouldn't, not at first at least. Recovering from an ACL tear is typically a 12-month process. Wentz shorted that by three months. That's not to say he's not game ready, but it will take time to get back to full strength. That makes an Eagles team, coming off 27-21 loss to Tampa Bay, vulnerable come Sunday.
While one gunslinger attempts a comeback, the opposing one — Andrew Luck — has all but completed his. Through two games, Luck has completed 71 percent of his passes for 498 yards, four scores, and three picks. Aside from the giveaways, you can't even tell Luck missed more than a year. We like Indianapolis (1-1) to play spoiler for a not-so-100-percent Wentz.
Pick: Colts (+6)
Over/under 41 points: Buffalo Bills at Minnesota Vikings
This one is going to ugly in a hurry. While Minnesota (1-0-1) at -17.5 was an appealing bet, we believe betting the over is a bigger gimme based how awful Buffalo (0-2) is.
The Bills have given up 88 points in two losses. Josh Allen will be making his second-ever start against the best defense in the NFL. Buffalo's lone offensive playmaker LeSean McCoy has a rib injury. Things got so bad this past Sunday that a Bills player actually retired in the middle of the game. Yikes.
We believe Minnesota can score over 41 points by themselves. Either they'll capitalize off Allen mistakes or the Kirk Cousins-led attack will pile on an already leaky defense. Actually, both will likely happen as the Vikings blow Buffalo out.
Pick: Over 41 points
New England Patriots (-6.5) at Detroit Lions
Fun fact: only one former Bill Belichick disciple has a winning record as an NFL head coach. Who you may ask? Nick Saban? Eric Mangini? Jim Schwartz? Nope, Al Groh who went 9-7 in his lone season as Jets head coach in 2000.
The other nine ex-Belichick assistants have gone a pitiful 147-224 (.396) on their own. It's only been two games, however, Lions head coach Matt Patricia is following the trend. The former New England defensive coordinator has allowed Detroit to be carved up for 78 points in two losses.
The Patriots are licking their own wounds too after a 31-20 loss to Jacksonville. The kicker is Belichick is incredibly tough to beat two weeks in a row. Since Tom Brady became a starter in 2001, the Patriots are 41-11 (.788) coming off a loss. Against his former mentee, Belichick should push all the right buttons to cover a six-and-a-half-point spread.
Pick: Patriots (-6.5)
