NFL Week 3 odds are already out and here are the must-watch games for the week.

NFL Week 3 Must-Watch Games

Thursday, Sep 24

Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars

This could very well be the worst game of the season. Miami is season two into a rebuild with Tua in the wings while Jacksonville is Losing for Lawrence or Tanking for Trevor. This is going to be an ugly game.

Sunday, Sep. 27

Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons

While Dolphins versus Jags will be one of the lowest-scoring games in Week 3, Bears against Falcons should be one of the highest-scoring matchups. Atlanta has one way to go on offense, let Matt Ryan throw for over 400 yards and try to score enough points to beat the other team. Chicago can counter with Mitch Trubisky and an underrated Bears offense. If this one doesn’t break 60, we’ll be surprised. 

Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns

Washington’s path to victories is clear. Lean on a talented defensive line and hope quarterback Dwayne Haskins doesn’t make mistakes on offense. Washington had 8 sacks against Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz. Baker played okay against the Bengals in Week 2. He won’t against Chase Young and a Washington front seven that recorded 8 sacks against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. So, don’t expect a barn burner. 

San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants

The 49ers battle the Jets in Week 2. They get a chance to go up 2-0 when they take on the Giants in Week 3. San Francisco could go crazy and score 40 points. More than likely, only the 49ers break 20, which makes this another low-scoring affair. 

Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles

After his second pro-game, Joe Burrow is already the best QB in this game. He must work on his pass completion percentage, but he’s thrown for 509 yards, 3 touchdowns and just 1 interception in two games. We know that when he has time, Carson Wentz is one of the most effective quarterbacks in the NFL. Both signal-callers figure to have success in NFL Week 3.

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

The Jets offense is pathetic. But, this game could still approach a 50 total. Colts’ quarterback Philip Rivers takes too many chances, which should help the Jets’ offense win the field position battle. If Sam Darnold can put at least 20 on the board, Rivers and Indianapolis will provide the rest of the 30 points. 

Carolina Panthers at L.A. Chargers

When it comes to the total, no game is as tough to handicap as Panthers versus Chargers. The Bolts lean on a tough defense. Carolina leans on a strong offense. The Chargers could contain Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and running back Christian McCaffrey. On offense, Los Angeles will try and eat up clock. Expect the Chargers to ensure the Panthers don’t score more than 21.

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals

Arizona’s offense should score 30 versus a Detroit defense that yielded 149 rushing yards to the Bears in Week 1. The Lions have a great quarterback in Matthew Stafford, but Staff can’t do it all on his own. Lions versus Cardinals figures to be one of the higher scoring games in NFL Week 3.

MLB Final Of The Season Week Picks

MLB Final Week Of The Season Picks

We are at the final week of the shortened 2020 MLB season. With every team making its final post-season push this week should be full of amazing baseball action. Keep reading for my picks for the must watch and bet games of the week.

MLB Final Week Of The Season Picks

Monday, Sep. 21

Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves

Miami starter Trevor Rogers is 1-1 with a 6.06 ERA. The Braves are undecided on who they will start on Monday. It may not matter. The last time Atlanta played the Marlins, on Sep. 9, they beat Miami 29-9. Freddie Freeman drove in 6 runs with 3 hits.

Tampa Bay Rays at New York Mets

Rays starter Josh Fleming could throw for at least 5 innings. The Rays could decide trying to beat Jacob DeGrom and his 2.09 ERA isn’t worth it, which means if Fleming gets into trouble, they may keep him in there longer than they usually would.  

Tuesday, Sep. 22

Texas Rangers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Texas Jordan Lyles heads to the hill with his 1-5 record and 7.07 ERA. Luckily for Lyles, Arizona’s best hitter, David Peralta, bats less than .300. Peralta has a .295 average. The D’Backs also have a -49 run differential.  

Oakland A’s at Los Angeles Dodgers

Some will say the weak link in the A’s rotation is Tuesday starter Mike Minor. But Minor had a great game on Sep. 14, throwing 7 innings and striking out 8 in a 9-0 Oakland win. Dodgers starter Dustin May is 1-1 with a 2.68 ERA.

Wednesday, Sep. 23

Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians

White Sox starter Reynaldo Lopez is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA. Unless Reynaldo throws a gem, Cleveland looks difficult to beat in this. The Tribe sends Zach Plesac to the mound. Plesac gave up no runs and struck out 7 in 6 innings the last time he faced Chicago. 

St. Louis Cardinals at Kansas City Royals

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez has a 10.32 ERA and a 2.12 WHIP. Kansas City should have a pitching edge with Danny Duffy, who is 3-3 with a 4.24 ERA.  

Thursday, Sep. 24

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

Pittsburgh is a terrible team. But, they have a shot to pick up a win on Thursday. The last time they faced Chicago starter Alec Mills they belted him for 4 earned runs in 5 innings and the Pirates beat the Cubs 6-2.

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals scored a run off Corbin Burnes the last time he started against them. Burnes must step it up on Thursday because St. Louis starts Kwang-Hyun Kim. Kwang-Hyun is 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA.

Friday, Sep. 25

Houston Astros at Texas Rangers

The Astros have a ton of work to do in the final week if they hope to either win the AL West or grab a wildcard. Jose Uriquidy figures to do his part on Friday. He held the Rangers to 1 hit in 7 innings in a 4-1 Houston win the last time he faced Texas. Rangers starter Kyle Cody didn’t last longer than 3 innings in that same game.

L.A. Angels at L.A. Dodgers

On August 15, the Dodgers ran Angels listed starter Andrew Heaney off the mound after 5.2 innings. Dodgers starter Tony Goselin has allowed 1 earned run in his last 16.2 home innings thrown.

Saturday, Sep. 26

Miami Marlins at New York Yankees

Yankees ace Gerrit Cole may have turned around his form. In his last 14 innings pitched, Cole has allowed 1 earned run off 5 hits. Miami’s top home run hitter, Corey Dickerson, has just 6 dingers. So, whomever the Marlins start on the mound must have a fantastic game for Miami to upset the Yankees on Saturday. 

Philadelphia Phillies at Tampa Bay Rays

If Philadelphia finds a way to make the postseason, they could be tough. One of the reasons why is because starters like Zack Wheeler can dominate. Wheeler is 4-0 with a 2.62 ERA. If the Rays require this game to win the AL East, they’ll start someone other than a converted reliever. Wait and see what happens earlier in the week before going against Wheeler. 

Sunday, Sep. 27

Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox are undefeated in the 7 games that Dane Dunning has started. Chicago is undecided as to who they will put onto the mound on Sep. 27. If the Cubs must prepare for the postseason, meaning they won the NL Central, they figure to start a reliever and rotate bullpen pitchers until the finish. 

San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants

The Friars list Zach Davies as their starter for Sunday. Unless the Dodgers fall apart, the Padres won’t win the NL West. San Diego looks like they’re a lock for a wildcard, though. Don’t expect SD to stick with Davies for this game. They may want to start Davies in the wildcard battle or save him for their first divisional playoff game after winning the wildcard contest.

College Football Week 4 Must Bet Games

College Football Week 4 Must Bet Games

Slowly college football is getting back to normal and in Week 4, the SEC returns to action. Keep reading for the top College Football Week 4 must bet and watch games you need to mark on your calendar.

College Football Week 4 Must Bet Games

Kansas State Wildcats at #3 Oklahoma Sooners

Last season, the Sooners and Wildcats played in a 48-41 game that Oklahoma won. This season, the score could be similar. Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler looks like the next coming of Patrick Mahomes. Rattler has skills for days. Also, K-State’s defense allows 35 points per. The Wildcats will score a few points.

#7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Wake Forest Demon Deacon

Wake Forest won’t help over players in this matchup. The Demon Deacons don’t have the type of offense that will post more than 13 to 17 points against a young, but talented, Notre Dame defense. The Irish will move the football. They may not throw 52 against the Deacons the way they did versus USF in Week 3, but ND will score some points.

Iowa State Cyclones at TCU Horned Frogs

In 2019, TCU averaged 30.3 points per game. The Horned Frogs are good enough on offense to average around that many points this season. Iowa State doesn’t have much of an offense, though. Here’s another college football contest where the total should lean towards the low side.

#9 Texas Longhorns at Texas Tech Red Raiders

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is the real deal. The Longhorns blasted Texas Tech 49-24 last season. Texas Tech should score over 20 points again while the Horns could post over 50. This should end up one of the highest-scoring games in Week 4.

West Virginia Mountaineers at #11 Oklahoma State Cowboys

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have won of the very best offenses in the country but it didn’t show up against Tulsa in a 16-7 game. Last season these two played in a 20-13 game. Neither figures to for the issue on Saturday, which means we’re staring at another low-scoring battle. 

#4 Georgia Bulldogs at Arkansas Razorbacks

Georgia is a Top 10 squad, no doubt, but it’s not because of their offense. The Bulldogs won’t score a ton of points this season. Former USC Trojan starter JT Daniels is the man now that Jamie Newman said he wouldn’t participate due to the coronavirus. Daniels plays behind an offensive line with 4 new starters. Arkansas averaged 21.4 points per last season. Nothing tells us they should average more this season. 

Vanderbilt Commodores at #10 Texas A&M Aggies

Vanderbilt’s offense won’t do much. Vandy wants to employ an up-tempo style this season. That won’t work against the Aggies, a team that returns a lot of talent on the defensive side of the football. This game should be low-scoring because even if A&M scores 28 to 35, Vanderbilt may not score at all.

NC State Wolfpack at #20 Virginia Tech Hokies

NC State didn’t score at least 28 points in a single ACC game last season. Although the offense should be better in 2020, it won’t be good enough to deal with a Virginia Tech team that returns 10 starters on defense. This will be a low-scoring battle for sure.
