How To Bet My NFL Week 3 Five ? Lock Picks

What: Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at Dallas Cowboys (2-0)
When: Sunday, Sept. 27th, 2015 
Kickoff: 1:00 p.m. ET 
Where: Arlington, TX
Stadium: AT&T Stadium
Weather: N/A
Spread: Falcons -1
Moneyline: N/A
Game Total: 44.5
Watch: FOX
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Listen: Atlanta vs Dallas

Atlanta has looked like one of the better teams in the NFL. The offense is set with QB Matt Ryan and WR Julio Jones providing one of the top QB to WR combos in the league. Ryan threw for 363 yards and a TD versus the Giants in Week 2 while Jones caught 13 of his 15 targets for 135 yards. Don’t be fooled by the fact that Dallas’ defense held the Eagles’ to 219 passing yards. Bradford to Matthews is not the same as Ryan to Jones. Not only that, but Dallas is missing its QB and best wide receiver in this game. Atlanta should win and easily cover the spread.
Pick: Atlanta -1.5

What: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-1) at Houston Texans (0-2)
When: Sunday, Sept. 27th, 2015 
Kickoff: 1:00 p.m. ET 
Where: Houston, TX
Stadium: NRG Stadium
Weather: 87° F/Scattered Clouds
Spread: Texans -7
Moneyline: Tampa Bay +245 vs Houston -290
Game Total: 40.5
Watch: FOX
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Listen: Tampa Bay vs Houston

QB Jameis Winston looked like the next great signal-caller in the NFL versus the New Orleans pass rush. Yeah, New Orleans doesn’t have a pass rush that’s close to being as effective as Houston’s. The front 7 is healthy. The Texans are going to feast on the rookie in this game. QB Ryan Mallet was just okay versus the Carolina defense. The Texans should be able to get their rushing game going. That will help Mallet in the passing game. Houston will cover.
Pick: Houston -6.5

What: San Diego Chargers (1-1) at Minnesota Vikings (1-1)
When: Sunday, Sept. 27th, 2015 
Kickoff: 1:00 p.m. ET 
Where: Minneapolis, MN
Stadium: TCF Bank Stadium
Weather: 76° F/Scattered Clouds
Spread: Vikings -2.5
Moneyline: San Diego +113 vs Minnesota -133
Game Total: 45
Watch: CBS
Stream: CBS Sports
Listen: San Diego vs Minnesota

The performance that the Vikings provided against Detroit in Week 2 is the reason why so many analysts were high on this team going into the regular season. The defense held Detroit to 38 yards rushing and 285 yards passing. The Vikings rushed for 199 yards while Teddy Bridgewater completed 14 of 18 passes for 151 yards and a TD. Adrian Peterson rushed for 134 yards. He should go off again in this game.
Pick: Minnesota -2

What: San Francisco 49ers (1-1) at Arizona Cardinals (2-0)
When: Sunday, Sept. 27th, 2015 
Kickoff: 4:05 p.m. ET 
Where: Glendale, AZ
Stadium: U of Phoenix Stadium
Weather: N/A
Spread: Cardinals -6
Moneyline: San Francisco +235 vs Arizona -275
Game Total: 43.5
Watch: FOX
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Listen: San Francisco vs Arizona

San Francisco will have absolutely no success rushing against the Arizona defense. Arizona gives up only 81.5 yards rushing on average per matchup. If ‘Zona gives up yards, they prefer to force quarterbacks to make tough decisions. That’s okay for the Cardinals because their passing and running game is strong. The Cardinals only need to start RB David Johnson and give him the ball 15 to 20 times in this in order to win going away.
Pick: Arizona -6

What: Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) at St. Louis Rams (1-1)
When: Thursday, Sept. 24th, 2015 
Kickoff: 1:00 p.m. ET 
Where: St. Louis, Missouri
Stadium: Edward Jones Dome
Weather: N/A
Spread: Steelers -1
Moneyline: Steelers -128 vs Rams +108
Game Total: 47.5
Watch: CBS
Stream: CBS Sports
Listen: Pittsburgh vs St Louis

This has to be the pick of the week. Pittsburgh gets back RB Le’Veon Bell. They might not even need to play him for too many snaps in this. As good as St. Louis’ defense was supposed to be, it’s been terrible against the rush. The Rams allowed Seattle to rush for 124 yards in Week 1. In Week 2, the Rams allowed Washington RB Matt Jones, a rookie, to rush for 123 yards. Washington rushed for 182 yards as a team. Big Ben is going to pick apart the St. Louis secondary once the Steelers get the rushing game going.
Pick: Pittsburgh -1
