NFL Betting: Week 3 Roundup

Capperspicks.com has your back each and every week of the NFL Season, so stay tuned for all our NFL betting info.

Whoa, daddy. Week 3 was all about the offense. Let’s sort through all the smoke and dust and see who emerged on a Sunday of shootouts (and, in some cases, blowouts).


Bengals 20, Panthers 7

It wasn’t a rout but Cincy’s win against the woeful Panthers was never really in doubt. It’s clear that the Bengal defense’s Week-1 stinker against the Patriots was an anomaly. It made Joe Flacco and Jimmy Clausen’s lives miserable in consecutive weeks after that.

Patriots 38, Bills 30

Huh? The Bills scored 30 points? Ryan Fitzpatrick actually attempted the odd deep ball and it seemed to open up the running game, too. C.J. Spiller got his first two pro touchdowns but it wasn’t enough. The Bills are still the Bills and Tom Brady is still Tom Brady.

Chiefs 31, 49ers 10

To me, this was the biggest shocker of the week. So many bettors had San Francisco winning the NFC West and here they are 0-3. Just as surprising is Kansas City’s 3-0 start. Are the Chiefs that good? We can at least say that no one viewed the Chargers and 49ers as easy games when K.C.’s schedule came out.

Titans 29, Giants 10

Above all else, this bounce-back victory for Tennessee tells us just how good the Steelers defense is. It totally shut down the Titans in Week 2 but Tennessee marched on the Giants in a road game without worry.

Ravens 24, Browns 17

The Browns made things interesting – Peyton Hillis looks like the reincarnation of Mike Alstott – but the Ravens ground out the win. More importantly, Joe Flacco finally came through with a dominant effort under center. He and Anquan Boldin have quite the rapport going.

Steelers 38, Buccaneers 13

If you didn’t see this one coming, you shouldn’t be betting on football. The Bucs were very clearly pretenders and the Steelers were poised to grind them into dust all along. http://www.capperspicks.com/blog/wp-admin/post.php?post=26714&action=edit

Falcons 27, Saints 24 (OT)

The game of the week showed us that the Falcons are ready to push the Saints for the NFC South crown. Then again, New Orleans should be 3-0. Garrett Hartley missed a friggin’ 29-yard field goal in overtime. Even the diplomatic Drew Brees couldn’t hide his disgust.

Vikings 24, Lions 10

Brett Favre said it best: “Our running game, er, our Adrian Peterson played great today.” The Vikes’ passing game still didn’t look good in this one. The bye comes at the right time.

Cowboys 27, Texans 13

The Cowboys simply had too much talent to stay down three weeks in a row. This score was more about the Cowboys’ redemption than the Texans’ struggles. Houston will be fine; it just happened to catch a team playing a rare must-win game in Week 3.

Eagles 28, Jaguars 3

Michael Vick threw for 291 yards and accounted for four total touchdowns while also flashing scary-good downfield chemistry with DeSean Jackson. But before we go crazy, let’s acknowledge that Vick just picked apart the two worst secondaries in football.

Rams 30, Redskins 16

Steven Jackson’s groin injury and subsequent MRI put a damper on things but the Rams have to be pretty excited about beating a competent team like Washington. Sam Bradford simply doesn’t look like a rookie.

Colts 27, Broncos 13

How good is Peyton Manning? He’s quietly on pace for 5.402 yards and 48 touchdown passes with no interceptions and people are barely noticing. Kyle Orton stole his thunder this week by throwing for 476 yards. I’d say “Jay who?” but Mr. Cutler is doing just fine under Mike Martz’s tutelage in the Windy City.

Cardinals 24, Raiders 23

The Cardinals are tied for the NFC West lead but I’m still not convinced they’re for real. Even in those two wins, they let the Rams and Raiders of all teams move the ball on them pretty consistently.

Seahawks 27, Chargers 20

Another NFC West team got away with one here. Philip Rivers set a Chargers single-game record with 455 passing yards but Leon Washington spoiled San Diego’s parade by returning two kickoffs for touchdowns.

Jets 31, Dolphins 23

Is Mark Sanchez for real? That’s two straight solid weeks for him. With three 2-1 teams, the NFC East looks like it’ll be lots of fun this year.
