Two weeks of the NFL are in the books and if you are looking to cash in on NFL Week 3 betting action use my over/under betting predictions to get an edge.
NFL Week 3 Over/Under Predictions
Detroit Lions vs. Philadelphia Eagles: 49 ½
Detroit’s defense played well in Week 2. Philadelphia hasn’t been as sharp on offense. This projects to go under the total, right? Nope. Both these teams have skill players to flatter their quarterbacks, Carson Wentz with the Eagles and Matthew Stafford with the Lions. Not only that, but the Eagles have trouble stopping the pass. Taking a shot on the over.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Indianapolis Colts: 47 ½
On paper, this one looks like an easy over game. Atlanta has the QB-WR duo of Matty Ryan and Julio Jones. The Falcons also have a healthy Devonta Freeman and it’s Calvin Ridley’s second season. Although the Colts are without Andrew Luck, they do have a solid quarterback, a great running back, and plenty of pass-catchers.
But, these two squads also have decent defenses. The Colts run a ball-control offense with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, not that he can’t throw it deep, while there’s something wrong with Atlanta’s offense.
Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals: 45 ½
Arizona only scored 17 points versus Baltimore, but Kyler Murray passed for over 300 yards. The Ravens have one of the top defenses in the NFL. Carolina’s defense is often very good. But, it could have trouble matching up with AZ while the Cardinals’ defense won’t stop Cam and Christian.
Houston Texans at L.A. Chargers: 48
Because of the two quarterbacks, we’d think this is an over game for sure. However, both teams can also play some defense. The Chargers, especially, should contain DeShaun Watson. So, unless Philip Rivers lights it up, he didn’t in Week 2, this one’s going under.
L.A. Rams at Cleveland Browns: 51
The Browns won’t stop the Rams, which means their lone chance of winning this game rests on throwing the pigskin to Odell Beckham Jr. Odell isn’t Cleveland’s only weapon, though. They can also lean on Nick Chubb in both the rushing attack and in the short-passing game. Let’s mark the Browns down for 24 points while the Rams clock 35.
