NFL Opening Line Report – Week 3
Every Monday, we take a look at the opening lines for next week’s NFL games:
|49ers||68%||1||1||A surprising start for the Bengals (1-1) who could easily be 2-0. Andy Dalton looked solid against Denver, while the 49ers fell to Dallas in overtime.|
|Patriots||74%||-9||-9||The Patriots have covered the spread in their first two games and the public is likely to continue to bet them. The public still is not buying the 2-0 Bills.|
|Texans||22%||4||4.5||Two prolific offenses square off (the total is 53 for this game) and the Saints with the home-field advantage are favored by 4.|
|Dolphins||77%||1.5||3||An 0-2 start for Miami has not prevented people from betting the Dolphins off of the key number of 3 down to 1.5 points.|
|Broncos||24%||6.5||4.5||The Titans win over Baltimore opened some eyes, and they have already been bet up 2 full points.|
|Lions||90%||-3.5||-4||This will likely be the most lopsided matchup of the week as the Lions are clearing more seats for the bandwagon.|
|Jaguars||21%||3.5||3 (+100)||Cam Newton has looked impressive in two starts, and the bets have pushed the line off of -3. The Jags could start McCown or the rookie Gabbert at QB this week.|
|Chiefs||17%||14.5||15||The Chiefs have just looked dreadful and the injury to Jamaal Charles makes them the biggest underdog in Week 3.|
|Jets||86%||-3.5||-3.5||The Jets are a favorite for casual bettors, and the public is likely to swallow the points on the road against Oakland in their home opener.|
|Falcons||80%||1||-1||A primetime win over the Eagles will make Atlanta a popular pick this week, although we have already seen some early reverse-line movement here.|
|Cardinals||91%||-3||-3||Not surprising that no one is taking Seattle after they were held scoreless in Pittsburgh.|
|Packers||83%||-3.5||-3.5||A great rivalry game usually means a lower spread, and that is true for this game. The Bears will likely be a contrarian play as small home dogs.|
|Steelers||91%||-10.5||-11||The Steelers are the biggest road favorite in Week 3 as the Colts were unable to beat the Browns, and still look lost without Manning.|
There are currently no lines posted for Giants/Eagles, Ravens/Rams, and Redskins/Cowboys.
