SN: NFL Week 3 Opening Odds Analysis

What happens when you take away $100 million man Tony Romo and $70 million man Dez Bryant from the Dallas Cowboys lineup?

You get garbage at the skill positions and Atlanta opening as a road favorite against the 2-0 Cowboys.

The Falcons are 2-0, too, under new coach Dan Quinn. But they would have been around a touchdown underdog if the Cowboys had Romo and Bryant.

Cleveland Favored by -4.5 Against Oakland on Sunday - Week 3 NFL Betting Odds and Pick

The Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders have produced far from the most exciting games when they meet, with their past four contests failing to top the closing total. The two teams renew acquaintances Sunday in Cleveland.

The Browns looked shaky in Week 1, but it was the Johnny Manziel Show in Week 2. Manziel was not asked to do too much, but went 8-for-15 with two touchdowns. Despite Manziel's solid play, he will be benched in favor of quarterback Josh McCown after the verteran has passed concussion protocol. 

The Raiders are riding a high after topping the Baltimore Ravens last week thanks to a last-minute touchdown. Quarterback Derek Carr had a big game after some worries he would miss the contest with an injury, as he threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns.

The Oakland Raiders will look to cover ATS vs their hosts on Sunday, as they are 1-1 ATS versus the spread this season, while the Cleveland Browns are 1-1 ATS. Oakland is 2-0 against the over under total, while Cleveland is 2-0 versus the number.

NFL Betting Preview and Pick - San Diego Chargers Underdogs vs Vikings at Minnesota

The San Diego Chargers have always started the season strong which has led the team to a stunning 9-1-1 ATS record in their past 11 games in September. The Chargers will look to continue their strong play to kick off the season when they visit the Minnesota Vikings Sunday.

San Diego has been struggling to keep a grip on the ball and has already fumbled four times, losing three of them, this season so far. The biggest offender in Week 2 was Keenan Allen who muffed a punt to open the game, which put the Chargers behind early.

The Vikings smartened up in Week 2 and gave running back Adrian Peterson the ball. After only 10 touches in Week 1, Peterson ran the ball 29 times for 134 yards in the Vikings' win over the Lions.

The Minnesota Vikings sit at 1-1 (1-1 ATS) on the season; in comparison, the San Diego Chargers are currently 1-1 (1-1 ATS). Looking to bet on the totals? Minnesota is 0-2 OU, and San Diego is 1-1 OU.

Buccaneers visit Houston Texans in Week 3 NFL Betting Clash

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have not been good for a while, which has led to the team failing to cover the spread in their past seven games against the AFC South. The Bucs will visit another AFC South opponent, the Houston Texans, this Sunday.

Tampa Bay picked up its first win of the Jameis Winston era in Week 2 when they capitalized on a sloppy New Orleans Saints team. The Saints fumbled five times with the Bucs getting the turnover twice while safety Chris Conte picked off quarterback Drew Brees.

Quarterback Ryan Mallett was average when he got the start in Week 2 for the Texans, throwing for 244 yards with a touchdown and one interception.

Houston bring a 0-2 record (0-2 ATS) to the Week 3 betting matchup against the 1-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are 1-1 ATS against the spread. Over under betting has seen Houston go 1-1 so far and the Buccaneers go 1-1.

St. Louis Rams Open as Week 3 Betting Underdogs vs Steelers

Coming off of a 43 point performance, the Steelers will bring their show on the road where the total has gone UNDER in five of their last seven games. They'll look to get an added boost as running back Le'Veon Bell will return to the lineup after serving a two-game suspension.

The Rams will be attempting to put an end to an 0-4 SU skid in their last four home games against the AFC North. In their last eight games against the NFC West the Steelers have fared well, going 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS.

After a disappointing 10-point performance, the Rams will hope to take advantage of a porous Steelers secondary that has allowed six receiving touchdowns this season.

The St. Louis Rams are 1-1 so far on the season, and 1-1 ATS vs the point spread. The Pittsburgh Steelers, meanwhile, are 1-1 and 1-0-1 ATS. Those over under betting have seen St. Louis go 1-1 and the Pittsburgh Steelers go 1-1 on the totals.

Tennessee Titans Hosting the Indianapolis Colts Week 3 Odds and Betting Pick

The Colts are looking to continue their dominance over divisional rivals, as they've gone 13-0 SU and 12-0-1 ATS in divisional games. They've been particularly dominant against the Titans, going 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven games.

The Titans couldn't carry their momentum from Week 1 into a Week 2 loss against the Browns, bringing them to 1-7 SU and ATS in their last eight games. In their last five September games, the Titans are 1-4 SU and ATS.

The Colts will be looking to reverse a trend of having the total go UNDER in their last six games on the road.

Tennessee bring a 1-1 record (1-1 ATS) to the Week 3 betting matchup against the 0-2 Indianapolis Colts, who are 0-2 ATS against the spread. Over under betting has seen Tennessee go 2-0 so far and the Colts go 0-2.

Patriots are 9-1 SU Against the Jaguars

The New England Patriots have played the Jacksonville Jaguars 10 times since the Jags' inception, with the Pats going a near-perfect 9-1 SU. Jacksonville will try to win their first game against New England since January 1999 when they visit Foxborough.

If we have learned one thing from the Deflategate circus it is that a motivated Tom Brady is terrifying. Brady has thrown for 754 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions through the first two games of the season.

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson put the NFL on notice in Week 2 when the sophomore receiver caught six balls for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Robinson accounted for one third of the Jaguars' catches in the team's win over the Dolphins.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will look to cover ATS vs their hosts on Sunday, as they are 1-1 ATS versus the spread this season, while the New England Patriots are 1-0-1 ATS. Jacksonville is 1-1 against the over under total, while New England is 1-1 versus the number.

Giants 4-0 SU & ATS Past Four vs Skins

The New York Giants should be happy to see the Washington Redskins on Thursday, as they have won their past four games SU and ATS against their NFC East rivals. The Giants outscored the Redskins 113-50 in those four games.

The Giants are trying to stave off starting the season 0-3 after dropping two close losses to the Cowboys in Week 1 and the Falcons in Week 2. Though the early season has been marked by some questionable decisions, Odell Beckham Jr. has tallied 190 yards and a touchdown.

The Redskins have been all about the run game this season, with the team averaging 171.5 yards per game. Washington's offensive line also held a dominant Rams defensive line in check by only allowing one sack.

The New York Giants sit at 0-2 (1-1 ATS) on the season; in comparison, the Washington Redskins are currently 1-1 (1-1 ATS). Looking to bet on the totals? New York is 1-1 OU, and Washington is 0-2 OU.
