NFL Week 3 Best Bets: Many teams on the road have very solid value this week
As the NFL season enters week three, this article will highlight three of the best bets you can find on Sunday. The start of the season has shown that we can expect a lot of competitive games throughout the year. Only a handful of teams have actually parted ways, and two of them will be featured in the first bet. If you want some action while watching Sunday’s NFL game slate, you’ve come to the right place! Let’s get into those bets.
Bet #1: Kansas City Chiefs/Philadelphia Eagles Moneyline Parlay (-112 on DraftKings)
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles started the season 2-0 with a decisive victory on their CV. The Chiefs will hit the road to face the Indianapolis Colts, who got off to an incredibly poor start. NFL fans had high expectations for the Colts this year, but they responded with a tie and loss to two of the worst teams in history. They will now host Chiefs managed by Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid, which is not a great game for a struggling team.
The Eagles have shown that they are one of the most complete teams. Jalen Hurts played very well for 2 games and the addition of AJ Brown helped this offense tremendously. They will also hit the road to take on the Washington Commanders in an NFC East Division game. Washington’s defense doesn’t look good. Don’t expect them to be able to stop Philly.
Bet #2: Baltimore Ravens ML (-140 on DraftKings) vs New England Patriots
The Baltimore Ravens outplayed the Miami Dolphins for three quarters of week two. That narrative quickly changed when the Dolphins stormed in to shock the Ravens in one of the most impressive comebacks in recent NFL history. The main difference in this week’s game is that they will play an attack that is not as explosive. The Ravens will look to Lamar Jackson to continue his stellar play.
The New England Patriots have been the NFL’s best home team for years, but they’ve been very beatable in Foxboro since Tom Brady took his talents to Tampa Bay. The Ravens will have a bad taste in their mouths after this brutal loss against Miami. We take the most talented Ravens to defeat the Pats!
Bet #3: Green Bay Packers ML (+105 on DraftKings) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers escaped New Orleans with a win last week. This week they will host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers will have a much bigger job to handle than Jameis Winston and the Saints offense. The Packers are coming off a morale-boosting win over the Bears and will be looking to pick up another huge victory in Tampa Bay.
Aaron Rodgers is still the reigning back-to-back NFL MVP; if he can get receivers to step in and make plays, it could be a good night in Green Bay. A big reason why this bet has a lot of value is Tampa Bay’s poor receiver situation. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones likely won’t play Sunday due to injury or suspension. It doesn’t matter who the quarterback is, it’s hard to win football games with a receiving corps made up entirely of backups.
Look for Rodgers and Green Bay to get revenge on the Bucs; let’s ride with the Packers moneyline.
