A Closer Look at the NFL Preseason Week 3 Winning ATS Picks
Carolina Panthers (+1) at Jacksonville JaguarsWhile we might not see much of Cam Newton, if we even see him at all, this is still a game that you would expect the Panthers to win. Both teams have split their opening two games of the preseason. Although the Jaguars look to still have some serious issues on the offensive side of the football. The Panthers had a chance to beat the Buccaneers last week, but could not punch the ball in from a couple of yards out, despite having 4 bites at it. The Panthers won’t need to put a lot of points on the board to win this one. I’m looking at Carolina by a TD.
New England Patriots (-1 ½) at Detroit LionsIf there is any sign that the preseason is no real indication of what to expect in the regular season. It has to be that the Patriots are 0-2 through the first two weeks. I think that changes this week when the defending Super Bowl champions make the trip to Detroit to face the Lions.
Defensively, the Patriots have been poor through the first couple of preseason games. But with the regular season drawing ever closer, I think that Belichick will be looking to tighten things up a little. Patriots get their first preseason win, covering in the process.
