Week 3 is set to kick off with the Thursday Night game between the Houston Texans and New England Patriots, and while this game looks like one of the most attractive brawls of the week, there are a couple of extra games that you should put in your agenda.
After two weeks on the road, the Bengals will get back home to face the Broncos in their home opener at Paul Brown Stadium. The match presents an interesting situation that might catch the attention of pro football bettors. First, the Bengals open their season with road games at Pittsburgh and New England, and these are the only games where Cincinnati comes in as underdog. Second, it will be Cinci’s final game before Vontaze Burfict’s return after a three game suspension imposed by the NFL after an unnecessary helmet to helmet hit on Antonio Brown in last season’s wild card game, which make us believe that this will be a strong and physical game.
Another team that looks like an interesting pick for week 3 is the NY Giants. After Tom Coughlin’s resignation, the G-Men will try to bounce from the 6-10 record achieved last season, and week 3’s game against the Washington Redskins is a great opportunity for first-year head coach Ben McAdoo to guide his team to a convincing home victory.
