Analysis: The Pittsburgh Steelers are the ‘super easy’ option on the NFL Picks list to win and cover the spread in Week 3 against a rebuilding Chicago Bears team that got completely overpowered in its 29-7 Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay. The Steelers smacked Minnesota around in their 26-9 Week 2 win to cash in as an 8.5-point home favorite and have gone 8-3-1 ATS in their last dozen games and 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games. More importantly than those ATS trends is the fact that the Steelers are the better team in all three phases in their Week 3 pairing against Chicago. Keep it simple people and back the Super Bowl hopeful Steelers this weekend! NFL Pick: Pittsburgh -7.5

Saints vs. Panthers NFL Week 3 Odds, Game Preview & Expert Pick

Miami Dolphins (1-0) at NY Jets (0-2)

When: Sunday, September 24 at 1:00 PM ET Where: MetLife Stadium NFL Odds: Miami -6 Total: 41.5

  • Precipitation: 2%
  • Cloud Cover: 7%
  • Wind: 8 mph N
  • Stadium Type: Open
Analysis: The Miami Dolphins got past the Los Angeles Chargers 19-17 in Week 2 and shouldn’t have any problems beating a New York Jets team that has plenty of issues on both sides of the ball as evidenced by their 45-20 Week 2 blowout loss against Oakland.  Miami won both regular season meetings against New York a year ago as blossoming running back Jay Ajayi ran wild in both affairs. The Fins have compiled a bankroll-boosting 9-3-1 ATS mark in their last 13 games while the Jets have gone 3-6-1 ATS in its last 10 home games against their longtime AFC East division rivals. Miami is one of the easiest NFL Picks to win and cash in in Week 3. It’s that simple. NFL Pick: Miami -6

Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) at L.A. Chargers (0-2)

When: Sunday, September 24, at 4:25 PM ET Where: StubHub Center NFL Odds: LA Chargers +3 Total: 45.5

  • Cloud Cover: 0%
  • Wind: 13 mph W
  • Stadium Type: Open
Analysis: I guess it doesn’t matter where the Chargers call home because they basically keep finding new ways to lose games in heartbreaking fashion no matter where or who they play. Kansas City has found it has a star in the making in rookie running back Kareem Hunt while veteran quarterback Alex Smith suddenly looks like he actually wants to throw the ball down the field. Marcus Peters and the Chiefs are at the top of NFL Picks for Week 3. Kansas City has won six straight over Los Angeles and will make it seven in a row by controlling the gun-slinging Philip Rivers and the Chargers’ offense while getting just enough of their own offense from Smith and company to make another win stand up. The Chiefs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Chargers and 5-1 ATS in their last six road dates against the Bolts, some of the reasons to be on top of the NFL Picks for Week 3. NFL Pick: Kansas City -3.

Seattle Seahawks (1-1) at Tennessee Titans (1-1)

When: Sunday, September 24 at 4:05 PM ET Where: Nissan Stadium NFL Odds: Tennessee -3 Total: 43

Weather Forecast

  • Partly Cloudy: 30°C/86°F
  • Humidity: 47%
  • Precipitation: 0%
  • Cloud Cover: 39%
  • Wind: 5 mph ENE
  • Stadium Type: Open
Analysis: The Jacksonville Jaguars are arguably the most quarterback-challenged team in the league with an awful starter in Blake Bortles and a backup that is equally as uninspiring in veteran Chad Henne. Having said that, I’m going to urge you to back Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks as one of your NFL Picks to get the road win and ATS cover in Week 3 against the Titans as I suspect they have their fair share of desperation after their two lackluster performances to start the 2017 season. Seattle got smacked around by Green Bay in their season-opening 17-9 road loss before narrowly getting past the rebuilding San Francisco 49ers in their ‘weird’ 12-9 Week 2 win at home. Now, the Seahawks are a bit desperate to get their offense going and I believe it could happen in this contest, especially seeing as how the Titans also got man-handled in their 26-16 season-opening loss to Oakland. “Just stay together and keep grinding,” Seattle safety Kam Chancellor following Sunday’s super narrow win over San Francisco. “Keep looking forward.” The Seahawks are 7-0 ATS in their last seven Week 3 games while Tennessee has gone just 7-22-2 ATS in their last 31 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points. I’m going to urge you to back Russell Wilson and company to get the outright road win – based on the fact that, again, they already look semi-desperate NFL Pick: Seattle +3
