11 teams open Week 3 with perfect 2-0 records. Six of those teams go head-to-head as we enter another solid week in the NFL.
Here’s a look at our top six NFL odds in Sports Interaction’s weekly Pick Six.
Rams at Bills (-2.5)
The Rams offence is clicking on all cylinders this season with both their pass and rush offence ranked in the top 10. On the other side of the field, after wins against the Jets and Dolphins, the Bills get their first real test of the season. If the number stays under the field goal mark, my bet is on the Bills in a close game.
Pick: Bills -2.5
Titans (-2.5) at Vikings
Titans pivot Ryan Tannehill has picked up where he left off last season and appears to be getting better in Tennessee. Through two games, Tannehill has produced six touchdown passes, zero interceptions and a passer rating average of 121.8. The Vikings have been an early season disappointment. At 0-2 they also hold the distinction of owning the fifth worst defense against the run, allowing an average of 154.5 yards against. Good luck with Derrick Henry.
Pick: Titans -2.5
Texans at Steelers (-3.5)
The key to the Steelers 2-0 start has been the defense, which is ranked second in the NFL. But, those numbers might be tainted a bit after having faced the Giants and Broncos – not exactly the superpowers of the league. The Texans are near the bottom in most offensive categories and have allowed at least 33 points or more in each of their two losses.
Pick: Steelers -3.5
Cowboys at Seahawks (-4.5)
The early (extremely early) NFL MVP has to be Russell Wilson. Wilson leads all Quarterbacks with nine touchdown passes and has the Seahawks averaging 36.5 points per game beginning the season with a pair of wins in two games. The Cowboys melted down against the Falcons in the first half, only to pull out a massive comeback win the second half. Not this week. Side note: the Seahawks are a great Super Bowl selection currently paying +1000 at Sports Interaction’s NFL Futures board.
Pick: Seahawks -4.5
Packers at Saints (-4)
This Sunday night will be the perfect undercard to Monday night’s main event. Aaron Rodgers has engineered the Packers to the highest scoring offence in the league through two weeks of the season. There could be plenty of points under the dome.
Pick: Packers +4
Chiefs at Ravens (-3.5)
Are we looking at the first big heavyweight game of the season? The answer is yes. This game will be an instant classic, and officially be the first step to the Ravens taking full control of the AFC Conference and becoming the number one ranked team in the NFL. In round number one, I like the Ravens to win this game, but the Chiefs cover because of the hook.
Pick: Chiefs +3.5
Last week: 5-1
