Broncos vs. Titans highlights NFL line moves

As football bettors enter Week 3 they’ve now had a chance to see every team twice. Some teams, like New England and Kansas City, have proven themselves to be consistently great or terrible, respectively. Others are still major question marks, which lead to major line changes.

Here’s a look at the games that have seen the most noticeable line movement in Week 3. For the latest NFL betting lines for this week head over to Bovada.

Denver Broncos @ Tennessee Titans (from -4.5 to -7.0)

League: 

Chiefs huge underdog vs Chargers

Kansas City has been demolished on the field and on the injury list and neither situation appears set to improve in Week 3.

The 0-2 Chiefs, embarrassed by the Bills and Lions, lost their best player Jamaal Charles to an ACL tear, one week after they lost their top defensive player, Eric Berry, to the same injury.

San Diego was unlucky in New England last week but has pulverized KC 74-14 in the past two meetings here.

Huge Week 3 NFL Betting Trends

The trends are so one-sided in Week 3 that oddsmakers had to post huge spreads and do other strange things, like make the Detroit Lions road favorites.

15-0 SU. That’s the Patriots' streak against the Bills. They’re also 10-1 SU in their past 11 trips to Ralph Wilson Stadium and dominate them against the spread for good measure. Result? New England -9 against a 2-0 Bills team that has scored 79 points in two games.

League: 

Falcons visit Bucs in Week 3 battle

Tampa Bay was an upset winner in Minnesota in Week 2 but they come home to face the Falcons, knowing they have been money-losers at home against the spread.

In their past 20 home games, the Bucs are a woeful 4-16 ATS. They face an emotional Atlanta team that got past Philadelphia on Sunday night in Michael Vick's return. The spread opened as a PK at most sportsbooks and Tampa is 6-2 ATS in the past 8 vs the Falcons.
The Bucs have been tough as underdogs lately, going 6-1 ATS past 7 games in that role.

League: 

Road Loser Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Preview

Arizona was lucky in Week 1 and looked bad in Week 2. Fortunately for Cardinals bettors, they face a team that was mediocre in Week 1 and dreadful in Week 2.

As a result, Arizona opened as 3.5-point road favorites in this NFC West battle in Week 3 against a team that has lost 8 straight on the road. Don't be fooled into thinking they covered a lot of spreads either, because the Seahawks are 1-7 ATS in those games.

The Seahawks are also a money-sucking 2-8 ATS past 10 games as an underdog.

League: 

Raiders vs Jets Odds

The Jets are 2-0 thanks to an emphatic win over the Jaguars in Week 2 while the Raiders are shaking their heads after a Week 2 collapse in Buffalo.

The Raiders led big, but Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Bills' rally.

It's the home opener for Oakland and they are 3.5-point underdogs against the hungry Jets. But the OVER has been the best play in Oakland home games lately, as the home side has enjoyed a 6-1 run favoring over bettors.

League: 

Vick, Romo status affect NFL spreads

Philadelphia’s Michael Vick is among the biggest names on the injury watch list this week as football bettors try to assess his and other key players’ statuses for this weekend's action.

Stats for 2-0 Teams and 0-2 Teams

If your team is 2-0, you safely include them among teams who will play for Super Bowl XLVI in February.

And those seven 0-2 teams, odds are against them even making the playoffs.

In the past five seasons, four of the five Super Bowl started 2-0. And all five runner-ups were 2-0 as well.

It's only two games, but they are very important two games.

See the past three years data of 2-0 teams and 0-2 teams.

League: 

Colts picked as biggest losers

From preseason Super Bowl co-favorites in 2010 to odds-on favorite to have the longest losing streak of any NFL team in 2011.

What a difference a Manning (or the lack of one) can make on your team’s fortunes.

Bovada has posted a ton of fun Week 3 betting specials and the biggest loser is topped by the Colts at 5/2. Kansas City and Miami are next at 9/2 followed by NFC West 0-for-2 starters St. Louis and Seattle.

League: 

Ravens favored at Rams in Week 3

If birds were able to lick their wounds, the Baltimore Ravens would be doing so after a shocking upset at Tennessee in Week 2.

Tennessee handled them, a week after Baltimore clobbered the Steelers to open the season. They visit St. Louis, who will play on a short week after its Monday Nighter against the New York Giants.
