Top NFL Odds to Bet Straight Up in Week 3

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) at Chicago Bears (0-2)

When: Sunday, September 24 at 1:00 PM ET Where: Soldier Field NFL Odds: Pittsburgh -7.5 Total: 45.5 Analysis: Pittsburgh jumped all over Minnesota in their 26-9 Week 2 win while easily covering the NFL betting line as an 8.5-point home favorite as Ben Roethlisberger completed 23 of 35 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns and the Steelers’ defense constantly harassed Minnesota backup quarterback Case Keenum who got the start for the injured Sam Bradford, who could return sooner than later. Chicago got man-handled in its 29-7 Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay while never coming close to covering the NFL betting line as a 7-point road dog. The Bucs took a 2-0 lead into the half and were never challenged as Jameis Winston completed 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown and running back Jacquizz rushed for 67 yards and one score on 19 carries. Now, for this Week 3 pairing, the Steelers are the easy pick to get past a Bears team that looked nothing like the competitive team we saw in the preseason and in Week 1. Pittsburgh is the better team in all three phases of the game and will win this game without too much effort if you ask me. NFL Odds Pick: Pittsburgh 31 – Chicago 17

Pass-Happy Quarterback TD Props Odds and Expert Picks

Denver Broncos (2-0) at Buffalo Bills (1-1)

When: September 24, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET Where: New Era Field NFL Odds: Denver -2.5 Total: 41 Which teams should you bet Straight Up in the NFL odds for Week 3? Week 3 Game Analysis The Buffalo Bills beat the abysmal New York Jets 21-12 in Week 1 and they played well defensively in their 9-3 Week 2 loss against Cam Newton and company, but they’re simply not going to be able to put enough point on the board against a Denver Broncos defense that made the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott look completely ordinary in their statement-making 42-17 blowout on Sunday. While Buffalo managed to score a grand total of three points this past weekend, Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian is clearly blossoming in his role as starter in Denver, having tossed four TD passes, while running back C.J, Anderson rushed for 118 yards and one score. Denver has won 16 of its last 23 games and six of its last eight meetings against the Bills while Buffalo has gone 2-4 ATS in its last six home games. Von Miller and the rest of the Broncos stout defense will shut the Bills down en route to the emphatic road win and ATS cover! NFL Odds Pick: Denver 31 – Buffalo 14

Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals

When: Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 PM ET Where: University of Phoenix Stadium NFL Odds: Arizona +3.5 Total: 47.5 Week 3 Game Analysis The Cowboys got completely dominated in their humbling 42-17 road loss against Denver in Week 2 while never coming close to covering the spread as a 2.5-point road dog while Arizona looked mostly awful in sneaking past the pitiful Indianapolis Colts 16-13 in overtime. Dallas let Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian toss four TD passes in the loss while Ezekiel Elliott got completely shut down to the tune of eight rushing yards on nine carries. Arizona nearly fell to Indianapolis in Jacoby Brissett’s first career start but got the win on Phil Dawson’s 30-yard field goal with 8:02 remaining in overtime. For this Week 3 NFC battle, I’m going to urge you to back the Arizona Cardinals to get it done, mostly because they’re at home and just can;t play any worse offensively than they did this past weekend. With both of these playoff hopefuls allowing more points per game than they are averaging right now, I say take the lesser of two evils. Dallas is just 2-7 ATS in its last nine games and 1-4 ATS in it s last five road games. Arizona has won seven of their last eight meetings against Dallas and is 4-1 ATS in their last five against the Boys. I love the Cardinals as a surprising home dog in this one! NFL Odds Pick: Arizona 28 – Dallas 24
