    Injury roundup: Patriots' Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry expected to play


    It looks like Cam Newton and the New England Patriots will be at full strength against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.


    Patriots wide receivers Julian Edelman (knee) and N'Keal Harry (shoulder) are both expected to play, a source tells NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.


    Both Edelman and Harry had five receptions in last Sunday's victory over the Miami Dolphins.


    The Patriots (1-0) take on the Seahawks (1-0) in Seattle at 8:20 p.m. ET.


    Other injury news we're keeping an eye on ahead of Sunday's Week 2 games:




    Atlanta Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews (knee) is listed as questionable, but he is expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys, a source tells Rapoport.
    Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck), his status is much more up in the air. Dallas will make a determination Sunday, but Smith must improve a great deal to get on the field, per Rapoport.


    Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley (hip) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (hip) are both listed as questionable, but both should play against the Houston Texans, according to Rapoport.
    On the Houston side, running back Duke Johnson (ankle) is not expected to play, while wide receiver Brandin Cooks (quad) should be good to go.


    Chicago Bears pass-rusher Robert Quinn, who arrived as a big-time free agent this offseason but missed Week 1, is expected to make his debut today vs. the New York Giants, per Rapoport. He was listed as questionable with an ankle injury.


    Giants wide receiver Golden Tate, listed as questionable after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, is expected to play today. He should be at full strength, according to Rapoport.


    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton, dealing with an AC joint sprain, has a good chance to play, but the team wants to work him out pregame to make sure his ailment has healed enough, a source tells Rapoport.


    Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring Sept. 9 and is out again today against the Green Bay Packers, but head coach Matt Patricia said Saturday: "He's really close." They'll see how he progresses, but it sounds like Golladay could be back for Week 3, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.


    Packers right tackle Billy Turner (knee) practiced all week, but his status for today's game against the Lions is very uncertain, a source tells Pelissero. There could be more shuffling for Aaron Rodgers' line, which lost right guard Lane Taylor to a season-ending knee injury last week.

    You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy...To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution.

    NFL odds Week 3: Opening lines, sharp money & line movement
    Patrick Everson


    Lamar Jackson and the Ravens will face a stern Monday night test at home against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs. The SuperBook installed Baltimore as a 3-point favorite.


    NFL Week 2 is almost in the books, NFL Week 3 odds are on the board and already getting some attention. Among the marquee matchups is a massive Monday nighter between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens.


    The SuperBook at Westgate's John Murray provided insights on NFL Week 3 opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting. Covers will update this report with NFL sharp picks vs. public bets and line movement throughout the week.


    NFL Week 3 odds


    These are the current NFL Week 3 odds, as of September 20.





    Dolphins at Jaguars odds


    Opening line

    Jaguars -2, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved

    Jacksonville is 1-1 SU, but cashed in in its first two games, losing to Tennessee 33-30 Sunday but covering as a 7-point road underdog. Miami is out of the gate 0-2 SU and 1-1 ATS, getting a last-minute touchdown Sunday to cover as a 5.5-point home 'dog in a 31-28 loss to the Bills.


    So John Murray and his oddsmaking team at The SuperBook made the Jags modest 2-point favorites at home for the Thursday night tilt, and there was apparently a little early Jacksonville interest, as the line went to Jags -2.5.




    Raiders at Patriots odds


    Opening line

    Patriots -6.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    "We opened the Patriots -6.5 and didn’t take much action on it before pulling it down when the Sunday night game kicked off," Murray said Sunday night. It's The SuperBook's standard practice to take a game down when a team is involved in the Sunday night conttest, as the Patriots were against the Seahawks.


    "It's a short week for the Raiders and a tough traveling spot, with them going east in Week 1, then back here for the Monday Night Football game, and then back out to the East Coast for an early kickoff."




    Rams at Bills odds


    Opening line

    Bills -3.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    The Bills are out of the gate 2-0 SU (1-1 ATS), but so are the Rams, who cashed in both games, including a 37-19 victory at Philadelphia on Sunday. Although the Rams are playing back east two consecutive weeks, the first move at The SuperBook was toward Los Angeles, from +3.5 to +3 Sunday night.




    Texans at Steelers odds


    Opening line

    Steelers -6, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    There was no movement Sunday night, though Murray expressed some sympathy for Houston, with its tough early-season schedule. "I don’t know what the Texans did to deserve an opening three weeks of at Chiefs, home against Ravens and at Steelers."




    49ers at Giants odds


    Opening line

    Giants +4, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    There was no move in this game Sunday night at The SuperBook, but Murray said setting the opening number was a little challenging, due to key injuries on both sides. There's concern that Giants running back Saquon Barkley may have torn an ACL in Sunday's loss to the Bears, so he could be lost for the season.


    Likewise, 49ers star defensive end is also thought to have a torn ACL suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. And San Francisco QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a high ankle sprain, so his status for Week 3 is uncertain.


    "Those guys (on the 49ers) are worth a couple points, and then Barkley is worth half-a-point to a point," Murray said, noting The SuperBook probably would've opened the Niners at -6 if not for the injury issues.




    Titans at Vikings odds


    Opening line

    Vikings +2.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    The SuperBook gave Tennessee the nod as short road chalk, but the first move was to the home 'dog Minnesota, as this line moved to Titans -2 Sunday night.




    Washington at Browns odds


    Opening line

    Browns -6.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    There was no movement Sunday night at The SuperBook.




    Bengals at Eagles odds


    Opening line

    Eagles -5.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    With the opener of 5.5 a relatively dead number, it appears The SuperBook just wanted to see which way bettors would take it. And they took it toward the Eagles, as the line ticked up to -6 Sunday night.




    Bears at Falcons odds


    Opening line

    Falcons -3, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    This line saw no movement Sunday night, but many observers think the Atlanta sideline should see some movement this week – as in, coach Dan Quinn should be fired. The Falcons blew a 39-24 fourth-quarter lead at Dallas, including allowing an onside kick recovery that led to the Cowboys' game-winning field goal as time expired. That marked the only time Dallas led Sunday.




    Jets at Colts odds


    Opening line

    Colts -9, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    Indianapolis (1-1 SU and ATS) rolled over visiting Minnesota 28-11 laying 3.5 points Sunday, while New York fell to 0-2 SU and ATS in a 31-13 home loss to San Francisco. It seems like this number is high, but The SuperBook went a little higher still Sunday night, with the first move to Colts -9.5.




    Panthers at Chargers odds


    Opening line

    Chargers -6.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement at The SuperBook on Sunday night, although Los Angeles was certainly impressive as it fell just short to Kansas City in overtime earlier in the day.




    Lions at Cardinals odds


    Opening line

    Cardinals -5.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    Another game that opens at 5.5 and quickly moves toward the favorite. Arizona is out to a 2-0 SU and ATS start, and early bettors were impressed enough to help move the line to -6.5 Sunday night.




    Buccaneers at Broncos odds


    Opening line

    Broncos +5.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    The Broncos could very well be without QB Drew Lock, who suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. So another game that opens 5.5 moved toward the favorite, in this case the visiting Buccaneers, who went to -6 Sunday night.




    Cowboys at Seahawks odds


    Opening line

    Seahawks -4.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    "We opened the Seahawks -4.5 and took some money on Dallas right away," Murray said, noting the game came off the board shortly thereafter, since the Seahawks were playing the Sunday nighter against the Patriots. "There should be good two-way action here. Gotta keep a close eye on the injury report for Dallas."




    Packers at Saints odds


    Opening line

    Saints -3.5, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    "We opened Saints -3.5 and took some money both ways," Murray said of action on Sunday night. "The Packers look like they’re a lot better than we realized coming into the season, but we don’t want to overreact too much to their wins over the Vikings and Lions."




    Chiefs at Ravens odds


    Opening line

    Ravens -3, Over/Under TBA


    Why the line moved
    "These are pretty clearly the two best teams in the NFL, and this looks to be the game of the year, at least as far as the regular season is concerned," Murray said. "We have the Ravens as a slightly better team than the Chiefs and the home-field advantage bumps it to Baltimore as a 3-point favorite to open. There was no discussion on this line. Everyone in the room made it Baltimore -3. It looks like all the other books agreed."


    And as of late Sunday night, there was no line movement, either.

    Hot & Not Report - Week 3
    Matt Blunt


    NFL Week 3 Betting Angles


    Two weeks of the season has already come and gone, and before you know it we will be at Halloween, eight weeks will have gone by and you'll still be doing preseason prep for the Pac-12.


    Week 3 is one of my favorite weeks of the NFL season though because the first impressions and subsequent follow ups have already been seen, and perspectives on teams are starting to take some sort of shape. Two games worth of box scores begin to form more data, and yet every season the same things seem to hold true in Week 3 every year.


    So it's into the archives for an updated version of a popular piece last year as there is no reason to change. It performed well once again. It's all about the spread record for Week 3 road teams and if they've got a goose egg in one column, you'll want to take it to crack.


    Who's Hot


    Week 3 road teams that are 0-2 ATS to start the year are 15-4 ATS in Week 3 the past four seasons, including 6-1 ATS a year ago



    Brought this one up at the right time a season ago with a nice 6-1 ATS mark this week, and the 2020 season brings us another strong list of candidates. Some of these teams are even up against some perfect 2-0 ATS teams as well.


    Who do you Follow?


    Cowboys
    Jets
    Texans
    Titans
    Panthers
    Lions


    This means that plays on Dallas (+4.5) at Seattle, the NY Jets (+10.5) at Indianapolis, Houston (+4) at Pittsburgh, Tennessee (-2.5) at Minnesota, Carolina (+7.5) at LA Chargers, and Detroit (+5.5) at Arizona all should be considered for the card.


    A couple of those lines still can have the look of ones that are a little too steeped in a two-week snap judgement and different weighing injuries can be. Carolina's going to be missing McCaffrey which is behind that number getting over a TD as part of the latter, and the Jets may not be as bad as they seem if you believe Buffalo's a contender this year and the catching an angry 49ers team who just happened to be 0-1 SU after losing the Super Bowl.


    At the same time, as someone who has the Vikings to make the Super Bowl an 0-2 SU start in the fashion it's gone down for the Vikings has not gone over well, and I'm not quite ready to write them off yet either. Tennessee's managed to let two teams hang around when they probably shouldn't have too, and laying points on the road with a team you know has kicking issues never feels comfortable.

    The cases for taking the points in five of those six games where it applies is something that won't take much work to have me on board, but there probably isn't much of a hurry to rush to grab these ugly dogs either. Carolina and the Jets are likely to get very little support overall, and I don't know how much market sentiment is left to make many want to back the Lions and Texans led by Matt Patricia and Bill O'Brien respectively.


    Dallas is always going to be a public darling regardless, but up against Russell Wilson and his MVP chatter already making the rounds, that overwhelming Dallas money is probably going to be more balanced. That spread isn't likely to be moving too far either way.


    But after seven games fit this role a season ago and it produced at that 85% clip, it was time to go right back to it and see how the six games that qualify this year end up treating the bankrolls.


    Who's Not


    Week 3 road teams that are 2-0 ATS are 4-9 ATS the past four years; 1-0 ATS in 2019



    This is not going to have the large volume of plays that the other run does, as of the nine teams that are 2-0 ATS, the majority of them are at home in Week 3.


    Who do you Fade?


    Packers
    Rams
    Raiders


    But this would imply that fading the Packers (+4.5) vs New Orleans and the Los Angeles Rams (+2.5/3) at Buffalo should be other options to be considered, as should looking to go against the Raiders (+6) at New England after they defeated the Saints on Monday Night Football.


    Monday's impressive win by the Raiders over the Saints in their Las Vegas home opener could open up the flood gates for plenty of generic Green Bay love as a downgrade on the Saints more then anything, but I'm sure the Raiders may come off that +6 number as well.


    The loss for the Saints likely still brings plenty of Packers love, but Patriots backers are probably going to want to look to get that play down sooner rather then later with New England looking just fine through two games of the Cam Newton era.


    Finally, playing against the Rams means you are playing on a strong Bills team that's remained undefeated and kept the backdoor open too long for the Dolphins to get the late ATS cover on Sunday. There are worse options every week then having a ticket that's got the Bills at home on it though.


    However, it would only be backing the two AFC East teams of these three games that I think I'd end up putting on the card, as even with Packers love expected, I'm still not sure the Saints aren't being valued much higher than they should be.

    NFL betting tips for Week 3: Bet Now or Bet Later
    Jason Logan


    The Buffalo Bills' invigorated passing game is currently the top-ranked aerial attack in the NFL. Their Week 3 total against the Rams is at 46.5 — but it could keep climbing as the week goes on.


    Week 3 is a dangerous week for NFL betting. You have just enough information to lure you into a false sense of security.


    This year, the NFL Week 3 odds are even slipperier to wrangle thanks to no preseason to measure against as well as league-wide injuries befalling many teams and their key contributors this past Sunday. But in the face of all this, the ultimate NFL betting strategy remains: get the best number for your NFL picks.


    We give the top NFL betting tips with our Week 3 lines to bet now and bet later.


    Carolina Panthers vs Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5): Bet now


    The Chargers opened -6 against the Panthers, coming off a tough overtime loss to Kansas City in Week 2. The Bolts played extremely well, considering rookie quarterback Justin Herbert was thrust into action due to Tyrod Taylor suffering pregame chest pains.


    Los Angeles’ defense was excellent, holding the Chiefs to 23 points and forcing three long field goals from an offense that usually has zero trouble finding the end zone. Offensively, the Chargers had a great balance between run and pass and now take on a poor Panthers defense.


    Carolina is crossing the country after allowing 31 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, on the heels of 34 points from the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. And while the Panthers’ defense – or lack thereof – is enough to like L.A., the fact Carolina star RB Christian McCaffrey will miss time with an ankle injury is a cherry on top of the sundae for Chargers fans. Get the Bolts below the touchdown now.




    Kansas City Chiefs (+3) vs Baltimore Ravens: Bet Later


    Oh my gawd, this is going to awesome. The Chiefs and Ravens GET IT ON this coming Monday night and the early odds have the defending Super Bowl champs as field goal pups on the road in Week 3. While this spread hasn’t come off the key number, books are adjusting their juice on the Ravens -3 to -115 while discounting K.C. in an attempt to stir up some Chiefs action.


    Kansas City barely escaped Week 2 with a win, needing some long-range field goal kicking to edge the Chargers in overtime. Now, Patrick Mahomes & Co. hit the road for a second straight game, this time taking on a Baltimore squad that looks scary good through two weeks.


    If you’re not sold on the Chiefs here, I don’t blame you. The Ravens crushed Cleveland in Week 1 and broke Houston on its home turf, covering both spreads at -7 and -7.5 respectively. However, if you do like Kansas City, wait it out and see if the half-point hooks show its face. And when it does, get ready to pounce because it won’t be there long.




    Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Denver Broncos (Under 43.5): Bet Now


    As much as the media wants to pile the praise on Tom Brady for the Buccaneers’ Week 2 win over Carolina, it was the Tampa Bay running backs that did the damage. The Bucs blasted the Panthers defense for 122 yards and three scores on the ground.


    Tampa Bay takes to the road in Week 3, traveling up the mountain to play the Denver Broncos. Denver will be without starting QB Drew Lock for the next few games, but it did see some life from backup Jeff Driskel against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t buy into that continuing.


    The Broncos are pretty beaten up on offense, with RB Phillip Lindsay out and WR Courtland Sutton ruled out for the season on Monday. Denver’s defense is a bit of a mess too, but it always seems to put up a fight at home, going 4-12 Over/Under in the team’s last 16 home games.


    I expect another run-focused playbook from the Bucs, which should kill clock and keep scoring low. Tampa Bay’s dangerous defense will also feast on the broken Broncos. If you like the Under, you’ll want to move on this now before it starts dropping.




    Los Angeles Rams vs Buffalo Bills (Under 46.5): Bet Later


    This total is on the rise, opening as low as 45 points and jumping to 46.5 as of Monday morning. And why not? The top-ranked passing game in the NFL is on the field.


    That’s right. The Bills’ offseason addition of WR Stefon Diggs has been just what Josh Allen needed to flex his cannon arm, with Buffalo averaging 29 points through the opening two games of 2020 – fueled by the throw.


    The Rams dragged their feet on offense in the Week 1 opener versus Dallas but found their footing in a 37-19 win at Philadelphia on Sunday. But let’s not discount the defenses on either side of this matchup — or the circumstances facing L.A.


    Buffalo and Los Angeles have a surplus of playmakers on defense as well as potent pass rushes that can disrupt even the most high-powered attack. On top of that, the Rams are racking up the frequent-flyer miles, having to fly to Philly for Week 2, then fly back to L.A., and then fly to Buffalo on Saturday, due to COVID restrictions. If you’re eyeing the Under, wait it out and see if this total keeps climbing.

    NFL Week 3 Injuries, Weather
    Patrick Everson


    The 49ers are more of an orthopedics clinic than a football team this week. QB Jimmy Garoppolo, among many others, is out, moving San Fran's spread from -6 to -4, and back to -4.5 Monday.


    NFL Week 2 is in the rearview mirror, NFL Week 3 odds are on the board, and several betting factors are already in play. That includes a flood of key injuries that will impact spreads and totals, particularly in the San Francisco 49ers-New York Giants clash.


    This week’s NFL Cheat Sheet serves as one-stop shopping for all that information and more.


    Week 2 Injuries

    San Francisco 49ers:
    Star defensive end Nick Bosa tore an ACL and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday’s road win against the Jets. Bosa is done for the year, while Garoppolo might be able to play in Week 3 at the New York Giants. “Those guys are worth a couple of points,” said John Murray, executive director of The SuperBook at Westgate.


    Murray said The SuperBook had the Niners -6 against the Giants before those two injuries, among others. Running back Raheem Mostert (knee) was already ruled out for Week 3, and wideout Tevin Coleman has a knee sprain. Oh, and defensive end Solomon Thomas also has a season-ending ACL tear.


    “They’re very banged up,” Murray said, noting The SuperBook opened the 49ers -4 and moved to -4.5 Monday.

    New York Giants:
    Saquon Barkley also suffered a torn ACL Sunday in a road loss to the Bears, so he’s done for the year. “Barkley is worth a half-point to a point,” Murray said. The Giants are 4.5-point underdogs to the visiting 49ers. It’s also worth noting the 49ers-Giants total opened at just 41.5, quickly dropped to 40.5, then went to 41 Monday afternoon.

    Denver Broncos:
    QB Drew Lock separated his right (throwing) shoulder in a loss at Pittsburgh, and he’ll miss two to six weeks, while star wideout Courtland Sutton is done for the year with a torn ACL. On the look-ahead line last week, The SuperBook had the Broncos 3.5-point Week 3 home ‘dogs to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. The line opened Sunday night with Denver as 5.5-point pups and stretched to +6.5, then went to +6.

    Carolina Panthers:
    Stud running back Christian McCaffrey was another Week 2 victim of a high ankle sprain and could miss several weeks. So he’s certainly not playing Sunday as the Panthers make the cross-country trip to face a Los Angeles Chargers team that just took the Kansas City Chiefs to overtime. Carolina is a 7-point underdog at The SuperBook.

    Los Angeles Chargers:
    QB Tyrod Taylor was a late scratch Sunday against the Chiefs with complications from a rib injury. Coach Anthony Lynn said Monday that Taylor would start this week if he’s 100 percent, but complicating matters a bit is that rookie Justin Herbert played reasonably well in a 23-20 overtime loss to Super Bowl champion Kansas City. But with the Panthers minus McCaffrey, the Chargers are still 7-point favorites this week.




    Week 2 Weather

    Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns:
    As of Monday, there’s a 50 percent chance of rain Sunday in Cleveland, with south/southwest winds of 10-20 mph. The SuperBook opened the total at 44.5 and ticked down to 44 Monday.

    Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers:
    Pittsburgh is looking at a 50 percent chance of rain, as well. The total opened at 45 early Monday morning and over the next couple of hours went to 44.5, then back to 45.

    Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles:
    The early forecast calls for morning rain in Philly, with intermittent showers in the afternoon Sunday. The total hasn’t moved off 46.5.

    Los Angeles Rams at Buffalo Bills:
    As of Monday, there’s a 60 percent chance of afternoon thundershowers, with south/southwest winds at 15-25 mph. But the total in this game is already up to 48, after opening 46.5 at The SuperBook.

    San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants:
    The early forecast calls for occasional showers Sunday, with a 50 percent chance of rain. The total went from 41.5 to 40.5, then 41, but that likely has much more to do with both teams’ injuries, as noted above.

    Glancing at the scoreboard won’t tell you the whole story in most games.


    Here are some of the games that went down to the wire relative to the spread and total in the fourth quarter in Week 2 of the NFL regular season.


    Cleveland Browns (-5½) 35, Cincinnati Bengals 30 (44½)


    A 24-point second quarter put the Thursday night game on a clear ‘over’ pace but the Browns were barely past the favorite spread with an eight-point edge at halftime.


    Cincinnati seemed to a get huge swing of momentum stuffing the Browns on 4th-and-goal on the opening drive of the 2nd half but rookie QB Joe Burrow would fumble on a sack a few plays later, handing the Browns another red zone chance and this time Cleveland delivered.


    Cincinnati would add a field goal to trail by 12 and the defense again delivered with an interception when it looked like Cleveland would add points. Burrow led a 14-play drive to put the Bengals within five with just under six minutes remaining. The underdog cover position was short-lived however as it took Cleveland just two minutes to answer, effectively putting the game away up by 12 at the 3:55 mark.


    Burrow impressed on another long drive that included two 4th down conversions, eventually connecting for a touchdown inside the final minute on a 3rd-and-long play to take back the spread result for the underdog.


    Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8) 31, Carolina Panthers 17 (47)


    The 0-2 Panthers are proving to have a lot of fourth quarter life losing in Week 1 in a back-and-forth final frame and also rallying vs. Tampa Bay after falling behind 21-0. Christian McCaffrey added two touchdowns before getting hurt to cut the score to 21-14 early in the fourth. The Panthers got the ball right back but Teddy Bridgewater had an interception across midfield.

    Tampa Bay only added three points off the turnover however and Carolina cut the margin back to seven just after the two-minute warning with its own field goal, which was enough to sit within the underdog spread. The onside kick attempt failed and Leonard Fournette rushed for 46 yards and a score on 1st down, putting the Buccaneers up by 14 and clearing the closing total that opened as high as 48½ before sliding to 47.


    Those laying the points with the Buccaneers didn’t have an easy viewing the rest of the way as Bridgewater had quick completions of 22 and 14 yards to cross midfield with still more than a minute to go. Carolina eventually reached the Tampa Bay 18 and the game’s final play didn’t quite get there with a 14-yard gain stopped around the 4-yard-line to keep the Panthers from stealing the cover.


    Pittsburgh Steelers (-6½) 26, Denver Broncos 21 (40½)


    The Steelers led 17-3 at halftime and Denver was down to Jeff Driskel at quarterback. The Broncos added 11 points in the third quarter and to stay in the game but the Steelers had a strong start to the fourth, completing a touchdown drive and getting a safety to lead by 12 with about 10 minutes to go. Getting the ball back after the safety, Pittsburgh fumbled on first down however and the Broncos delivered with a Melvin Gordon touchdown about halfway through the final quarter.


    Down by five, Denver’s defense held for a quick punt and Driskel appeared poised to deliver a game-winning drive for the Broncos, getting a big completion to the Pittsburgh 23-yard-line that withstood a replay challenge. Facing 4th-and-2 Driskel was sacked to thwart the upset and those on the favorite had a fleeting opportunity for a late cover with James Conner breaking a 59-yard rush to the Denver 10.


    Denver only had two timeouts remaining and the Steelers were able to run out the clock, eventually taking a knee at the 6-yard-line.


    Dallas Cowboys (-3) 40, Atlanta Falcons 39 (53½)


    The fourth quarter didn’t change the spread or total results in this NFC clash but it is worth reminding everyone that the same team that recently lost the Super Bowl with a 28-3 lead was leading 39-24 with five minutes to go in a NFL game and lost.


    Those taking Atlanta plus the points watched in horror after the incredible onside kick recovery as the prospect of a Dallas win and cover was back in play as Dallas had a healthy 1:49 to work with down two. After the big 2nd down gain the Cowboys played for the field goal and successfully pulled off one of the most improbable comebacks in NFL history.


    Buffalo Bills (-5½) 31, Miami Dolphins 28 (42)


    Buffalo jumped out to a 17-7 lead but Miami took control in the middle of the game, delivering 13 consecutive points on three scoring drives, each of fewer than 50 yards, to take a 20-17 lead with about 10 minutes remaining.


    Over two drives surrounding a punt Josh Allen needed only 12 combined plays for two touchdown drives of more than 70 yards as the Bulls were up by 11 with just three minutes remaining.


    Miami didn’t even face a 3rd down against a relaxed defense and connected in the final minute to spoil the spread result, getting the two-point conversion for good measure in the three-point final result.


    Chicago Bears (-5) 17, New York Giants 13 (42½)


    After needing a big comeback in Week 1 the Bears took a 17-0 lead over the Giants at halftime. Even with significant injuries for New York, the Bears weren’t able to coast for a win as four second half drives ended in a pair of interceptions, a punt, and a missed field goal.


    New York was down 17-10 before Mitchell Trubisky’s second interception set the Giants up in decent field position. With about 10 minutes remaining Chicago almost put the game away with a pick-6 but it was called back for pass interference. The Giants would stall at the Chicago 19 and kicked a field goal with still more than seven minutes remaining to trail by four.


    Chicago had a chance to push the margin back to seven points to go back in position to cover but Cairo Santos missed the field goal try. New York had a great opportunity to steal the win, converting two fourth downs along the way but eventually ended the game on the 10-yard-line as the Bears moved to 2-0 with a second straight narrow escape.


    Tennessee Titans (-7½) 33, Jacksonville Jaguars 30 (44½)


    The Jaguars trailed 30-17 through three quarters but completed a 75-yard drive early in the fourth and forced a quick three-and-out. Jacksonville went 86 yards to tie the game halfway through the final frame with another big performance from Gardner Minshew.


    A pair of punts followed, and getting the ball back in good field position with just over three minutes to go the Titans were able to add three points to go in front, aided greatly with a big 3rd down conversion via penalty.


    Minshew was intercepted on a short pass on a 2nd-and-1 play in the final minute as the Titans held on but Jacksonville did enough for a second straight underdog win to start the season.


    Seattle Seahawks (-4) 35, New England Patriots 30 (45)


    The Patriots opened the game with an early "Pick-6 Touchdown" but Russell Wilson rebounded nicely ultimately posting five touchdown passes even though the Seahawks only twice entered the red zone in the game.


    Seattle pulled away in the third quarter with back-to-back scores around a Cam Newton interception to lead by 11 but the Patriots answered early in the fourth quarter.


    Down five, New England went for two and came up short in a key play relative to the spread outcome. With just over four minutes remaining Seattle seemed to put the game away with a big 3rd down conversion and two plays later a touchdown to lead by 12.


    The Patriots answered quickly however and were able to get the ball back after the Seahawks tried to throw deep on 3rd-and-1. The Patriots put together a great final drive but opted not to call their final timeout after a connection to the Seattle 13-yard-line, leaving only 12 seconds on the clock by the time they got the ball snapped.


    After Julian Edelman couldn’t haul in a throw to the end zone, the Patriots reached the 1-yard-line on the next play and used the final timeout setting up the expected final play. Newton’s charge to the goal line was blown up as Seattle came away with the win and narrow cover in another entertaining edition between these teams and Hall of Fame coaches.


    Las Vegas Raiders (+4) 34, New Orleans Saints 24 (48)


    The line on the Monday night game shot downward Monday afternoon but the Saints opened up a 10-0 lead looking to move to 2-0 again considered by many a top NFC contender. Opening its new stadium in Las Vegas, the Raiders rallied for a tie score by halftime and took the lead early in the 3rd quarter.


    The Saints punted on their first two possessions of the second half while the Raiders lost a fumble to keep the scoring at 41 well into the fourth quarter as the only drama that remained was on the total. The Saints would find the end zone with about four minutes remaining to trail by seven and the scoring hit 48, the closing total but with most sitting with tickets slightly above that with the number gradually sliding from an opening price of 50½.


    A pass interference penalty converted a big 3rd down for the Raiders just ahead of the two-minute warning and the Raiders would face a decision up by seven with just over a minute to go on 4th-and-long. They opted for a risky 54-yard field goal attempt and Daniel Carlson delivered to seal the upset, as well as hitting ‘over’ too.

    Dolphins vs. Jaguars Week 3 Odds, Preview
    Matt Blunt


    Another week of NFL action has now arrived, and with this being the only major sport in town in the about a month or so, it won't be long before everyone in the market wonders where the first half of the season went.


    It's been an entertaining first two weeks so far with holding calls down and points across the league up. Those are two talking points this week and while I'm never sure on the former, the latter is something to consider in your handicapping.


    When stats like how the league wide scoring average is up over 50 points through two weeks get spoken everywhere, it might be time to lean towards flipping the script.


    Yes, scoring is well up through these first two weeks, but in the market that means that early numbers where 'over' plays may make a lot of sense are going to get bet up early, and that's on top of the potential for numbers already being shaded a little higher as well. You've really got to like an 'over' for a game if you haven't pulled the trigger on it yet, as numbers are only going to climb as a generalization.


    It will be interesting to see if Week 3 brings a few more 'under' tickets to the window, as something's going to give eventually. Maybe it starts with the Thursday nighter down in Jacksonville?

    Over vs. Under


    Handicapping the Total



    Popularized numbers like the league wide scoring average being well up this year is going to have more on an influence on the market from start to finish these next couple of weeks.


    Numbers are going to open higher in some instances, others are going to move in a hurry in others. But the later in the week you wait to take these 'overs' is when you are going to be left with the worst of it a lot of the time. This TNF game is case in point.


    This total opened up at 44 nearly everywhere, and within 24 hours it was already at 46. There are many examples of the same thing occurring in other games every week right now, and it makes timing your bets a bit easier. If you know you are going to love an 'over' in a game, you'd better look at it early.


    A four-point jump from open is something that's got to be respected, but I do believe it's also an easy spot to go the contrarian route and look for scoring to come down. This is still a TNF game on short week for these guys, and yes, Burrow and Mayfield lit it up in this spot a week ago, but I just don't see quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and RyanFitzpatrick putting up a similar performance.

    These guys love to dink and dunk the ball down the field and then cough up the ball late in drives. Fitzpatrick is known for trying to force things in when the field shrinks down, and Jacksonville has shown that they'll be very shrewd in picking their spots in when to take shots.


    Furthermore, how many sloppy TNF games have we seen in the past where guys/teams just don't have it and it's a 21-10, sloppy, exhibition-like game? There are at least a handful of them on Thursday's every year. Do you really want to trust these two teams of all teams to avoid something like that happening? In by far the worst of the number now?


    I sure don't, and in fact I do believe it's an easy look at the 'under' now for this game. I'm not sure Miami's offense is going to be all that good away from home - something that's been the case for them in recent years – and I'm not sure Jacksonville's defense shouldn't be rated slightly higher at home.


    48 is a big number for two teams that came into the season as likely lottery candidates, playing in a notorious 'under' spot on TNF, and the perception of it being an easier 'over' in bumping the number up so quick only has me looking at the 'under.'


    Head-to-Head History


    Dec. 23, 2018 - Jacksonville 17 at Miami 7, Jaguars -3, Under 39.5
    Sep. 20, 2015 - Jacksonville 23 vs. Miami 20, Jaguars +6, Over 42
    Oct. 26, 2014 - Miami 27 vs. Jacksonville 13, Dolphins -7, Under 42


    Dolphins vs. Jaguars


    Handicapping the Side



    The side saw a big early move too as a line basically at pick'em got to Jacksonville -3 in a hurry. There has been a lot to like about the Jags from their 2-0 ATS record, but they were also catching a full TD in those games.


    Catching points is when the Jaguars want to be really strongly considered in my view, because who knows how consistent this young team really is right yet. Isn't this one of those spots where teams like the Jags that were projected to be near the basement this year kind of come back down to earth?


    Again, with the best of the number already gone, easy to pass on the Jags side.


    Doesn't mean I want any part of Miami though, as they are 1-1 ATS this season with both games essentially being a coin flip on whether or not they sneak in the backdoor.


    Week 1 they had their chance with 3rd and 6 from the Patriots 10 in the final two minutes before Fitzpatrick threw an INT. Week 2 saw them get through the backdoor – after giving it up just prior – in the final minute of the game to cover the number against the Bills, but who wants any part of that.


    Catching just three points as an underdog is the smallest potential backdoor the Dolphins will be working with this year, and if their best games are coming down to coin flip plays late, how could you confidently make a case for them here either.


    I guess the notion that the number's the best it's ever been on Miami now at +3 will look slightly appealing to some, but I want nothing to do with sweating out a garbage time drive with the Dolphins late. Nor do I want to bet into the worst of the number with a Jags team that may not be all their2-0 ATS mark projects them out to be.


    Easy pass on the side from both perspectives. But Jags probably win.
