2019 NFL Week 3 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on September 16, 2019

The Monday night game will bring Week 2 of the NFL season to a close, with a few favorites already emerging from the pack and looking like legitimate Super Bowl contenders. While the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs look like the teams to beat early on, there are others who appear to be in trouble. The New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers are among that group, as injury and illness are having an impact on their starting QB’s. These are things to think of as we look ahead to Week 3, starting with looking at some of the best ATS NFL betting picks on the board right now.

2019 NFL Week 3 ATS Betting Picks

2019 NFL Week 3 SU Betting Picks

Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys (-21)

You couldn’t have two teams any further apart after just two weeks of the season. The Dolphins have lost their opening 2 games, surrendering a total of 102 points in the process. On the flipside, you have the Cowboys coming into Week 3 after winning their first two games. Their offense is clicking and averaging 33 PPG to this point.

The Dolphins have now failed to cover the spread in 5 straight games, while the Cowboys are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12. It looks to me like the Dolphins are onto another thumping this coming Sunday.

NFL Week 3 Betting Trends

  • Dolphins are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Dolphins are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games played in week 3
  • Cowboys are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games
  • Cowboys are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games played on a Sunday

Denver Broncos at Green Bay Packers (-7 ½)

The Denver Broncos paid a lot of money to land the services of Joe Flacco in the offseason, with the hope that the Super Bowl winner would kickstart their offense. It’s not working yet, as the Broncos are 0-2 on the season and averaging just 15 PPG. They will be in Green Bay to face a Packers team struggling to implement a new offensive system.

Despite their struggles, the Packers are 2-0, with that offense looking better for periods in their Week 2 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games versus AFC foes. Look for them to improve on that record this weekend.

NFL Week 3 Betting Trends

  • Broncos are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Broncos are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Green Bay
  • Packers are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Packers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against an opponent in the AFC conference

New York Jets at New England Patriots (-17 ½)

This is one that you may want to keep an eye on, as this line is likely to change once we see how things go for the Jets on Monday night versus the Browns. I think they could add 4 or 5 points to this, and I would still be looking at the Patriots to cover.

The Patriots should be one of your ATS betting picks for NFL Week 3.

New England has surrendered just 3 points through the opening 2 weeks of the season and will be facing a Jets team on a short week, while also playing without their starting QB. The Patriots have covered in both games this season, and while they are just 5-4-1 ATS in their last 10 versus the Jets, I think they will have a comfortable win here.

NFL Week 3 Betting Trends

  • Patriots are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Jets are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games
  • Jets are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games against an opponent in the AFC conference

2019 NFL Week 3 Over/Under Betting Picks

Atlanta Falcons (+3) at Indianapolis Colts

Given the trends we see with the Atlanta Falcons, this may well prove to be an unpopular pick, but I think it’s one worth taking a bit of a chance on. The fact that the Falcons are 0-11 ATS in their last 11 games versus a team form the AFC suggests that they might not be a good bet here.

There is something to be said for a team coming off a huge win, which Atlanta are, winning 24-20 in a great game versus the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. I have a feeling that these two are going to get sucked into a shootout, with the Falcons keeping it close enough to cover.

NFL Week 3 Betting Trends

  • Falcons are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games
  • Falcons are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on the road
  • Colts are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against an opponent in the NFC conference
  • Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games played in week 3
