It was Siemian who threw for 200 yards and a touchdown to lead the way against the Jets. He will have an opportunity to shine again against a very poor Indianapolis defense. The Steelers are coming off a 2020 season where they won the AFC North and got off to a red hot start, but lost in the first game of the playoffs to long hated rival Cleveland Browns. Big Ben’s years are limited and they’re looking to make one more push for the old veteran and another championship. It’s sure to be a heavyweight fight Sunday afternoon in New York when these two meet. The Baltimore Ravens after a disappointing overtime loss to the Raiders opening week bounced back in a big way on a short week as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs in a Sunday Night thriller.
- Pittsburgh has not surrendered more than 18 points in a single game the entire season.
- I’m concerned that the Rams could take the winless Lions too lightly, and Goff could play a good game because he is quite familiar with the Rams and SoFi Stadium.
- The Titans were a decent win, but it’s tough to have three wins make up for losing 11 units on the favorites that did win.
- Mario Sanelli writes about sports betting for BeerLife Sports.
- The health of the Indianapolis offensive line will be crucial to this matchup as Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead is arguably the best pass-rushing tandem the Colts have faced or will face all year.
The three wideouts could potentially all make their returns against Carolina, while Barkley’s status appears to be more iffy based on his original injury. Even with the Jets this coming off a bye, the fact this is the second meeting between division opponents and New England’s Week 6 loss, the Pats remain the touchdown favorite they opened as. The Packers have seen their projected advantage grow exponentially since the initial look-ahead number of seven points, with the figure already climbing by nearly a field goal as the week began.
Very popular betting game to this point across the full slate of options. Seeing something like that means you should check the weather! You’d think this would be a relatively quiet NFL betting weekend. Six teams have byes, so there are only 12 games Sunday and Monday. Three of those have tall double-digit point spreads, which tend to slow down traffic (only sharps bet big ugly dogs, and many recreational bettors aren’t comfortable laying huge spreads).
This is the Patriots sixth straight trip to the AFC Championship game. Belichick and Brady have won four Super Bowls and would love to make it five. That would tie them with San Francisco and Dallas and leave them one behind Pittsburgh, which has won six Super Bowl championships.
Week 3 Nfl Odds
The opening NFL odds and betting lines for this game started with the Packers laying double digits. Money has now come in on Washington, and the line has moved to a little more than a TD. I am not sure who is betting on Washington in this one, especially after watching them lose to the Chiefs last week.
Their two wins this season have come against Atlanta, which is 1-3, and Indianapolis, which is also 1-3. The two teams met last year in New Orleans where a Brees-to-Kamara 18-yard touchdown connection tied the score at 31-all and forced an overtime. Saints kicker Wil Lutz nailed a game-winning field goal giving New Orleans a win. The Washington Redskins are thankful that they had an extra week to prepare for Monday night’s game with the New Orleans Saints. The Redskins defense will have its hands full with one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL. The Saints are averaging 34.3 points per game with veteran quarterback Drew Brees and RB Alvin Kamara leading the way.
Xavier Rhodes, Kenny Moore, and Rock Ya-Sin are not the answer to Samuel’s unique skillset. Regardless of who the 49ers have at running back, the ground game should be productive, however. I expected Washington to have a solid offensive game against what came into the game as the worst defense in the NFL, but they managed to score just 13 points, all of which came in the first half. Taylor Heinecke underwhelmed with just 182 passing yards and a QBR of just 27.9, and Terry McLaurin, who I expected to have a huge game, finished with just four catches for 28 yards.
