There are plenty of opportunities to make money with the Week 3 slate.
Now that two weeks of the 2018 NFL season are in the books, we have a feel for each team and what they might be capable of this year. If you’re a gambler, that might make it a little easier to place your bets for Week 3.
But the NFL is still arguably the most unpredictable professional sports league out there, and we continue to see why every week. Raise your hand if you thought that, after two weeks, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be 2-0 with a victory over the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles under their belts.
If you just raised your hand, put it back down because you are lying through your teeth.
While it’s hard to tell what the Bucs are going to do from here on out, there are still some Week 3 matchups that could turn out to be pretty easy money. Here is a full list of the odds for the Week 3 NFL games.
Thursday, Sept. 20
New York Jets at Cleveland Browns (-3)
Sunday, Sept. 23
Buffalo Bills at Minnesota Vikings (-17)
Cincinnati Bengals at Carolina Panthers (-3)
Denver Broncos at Baltimore Ravens (-3)
Green Bay Packers (-3) at Washington Redskins
Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles (-6)
New York Giants at Houston Texans (-6)
New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons (-3)
Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins (-3)
San Francisco 49ers at Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5)
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars (-6.5)
Los Angeles Chargers at Los Angeles Rams (-6.5)
Chicago Bears (-4) at Arizona Cardinals
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
New England Patriots (-6.5) at Detroit Lions
Monday, Sept. 24
Pittsburgh Steelers (-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Only four road teams are favored this week: the Packers, Bears, Patriots, and Steelers.
If you’re looking for easy money, taking the Patriots -6.5 over the Lions almost seems like a sure bet, especially since New England took a tough loss at Jacksonville last week and Tom Brady is notorious for bouncing back strong after bad defeats.
One more interesting matchup is Buffalo at Minnesota, a game in which the Bills are 17-point underdogs. The Bills are terrible this year, and they were essentially written off before the season even kicked off. But 17 points is a humongous spread, and if Buffalo can find a way to cover that, it could mean BIG money for anyone gutsy enough to bet on them.
