I’s sure there are many of you out there still trying to catch your breath after a crazy Week 2 in the NFL. We had not one but two amazing comebacks this past weekend, with the Cardinals and Dolphins both somehow managing to pull out wins when all seemed lost. We also had the Buffalo Bills put on another show that marks them as the very clear favorite to win the Super Bowl. Yes, we are only 2 weeks into the season, but Buffalo already looks to be in high gear and ready to destroy everything in their path. There is a lot of football still to be played and things can change quickly, so let’s instead simply focus on Week 3. We will, as usual, have a variety of different picks coming your way, but for now, let’s stick with some NFL Betting ATS picks for Week 3.
Against The Spread Early Picks Must Wager On for NFL Week 3
Jacksonville Jaguars at LA Chargers (-7)
Week 2 may have ended with a defeat for the Chargers, but the reality is that losing a close one to the Kansas City Chiefs is still a loss that this team can take something from. This weekend, they will be facing a Jaguars team sure to still be on a high after sticking it to the Indianapolis Colts in a big way. The question now is whether the Jaguars are turning a corner or were just up against a Colts team that does not look very good through the opening 2 weeks of the season. We can only look at the past when looking for trends, and what we find is that the Chargers have covered the spread in each of their last 5 meetings with the Jaguars.
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (+5 ½)
I am well aware that I just said that the Bills look totally unbeatable right now, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t end up in a closer battle than what they have been in through the opening couple of weeks. This weekend, they will be in Miami to face a Dolphins team that is coming off a miraculous come from behind win over the Baltimore Ravens on the road. The addition of Tyreek Hill looks to be a masterstroke, as it seems to have boosted the confidence of Tua Tagovailoa, who has been great thus far. The Dolphins are now 9-2 ATS in their last 11 and have covered in 6 of their last 8 non-conference games.
Cincinnati Bengals (-4 ½) at New York Jets
In recent times, we have seen the team that lost in the Super Bowl struggle in the following season, with many of them failing to make the playoffs after a championship game loss. The Bengals still have plenty of time to right the wrongs of the opening couple of weeks, but that stats clearly show that teams getting off to an 0-2 start very often struggle to make it into the postseason. This weekend, they will be in the Big Apple to face a Jets team coming off a big win over the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and I believe they will snap out of their early season swoon.
