NFL Odds and Bets for Week 3: Underdogs Making Some Noise

Three best bets for Week 3 in the NFL.

Week 3 in NFL betting finds a highly competitive board with the biggest favorite only listed as a 6.5-point spread. In fact, nine of the 15 games remaining in Week 3 find spreads of three points or less.

Through 33 games, favorites are ahead with a 21-11-1 Straight Up (65.6 percent) mark, while the under has rewarded bettors with a 21-12-1(63.6 percent) record.

Here are three plays being targeted by respected money in Las Vegas!

Atlanta Falcons +1.5

The Falcons may be 0-2 in the NFL standings, but more importantly for bettors, they are one of eight teams that are 2-0 Against The Spread. In Week 3, Atlanta heads to Seattle hoping to finally break through in the official win column. The Falcons are a young squad that blew a 16-point, fourth-quarter lead in Week 1. However, against a Geno Smith-led club, the sharp bettors in Las Vegas believe they will earn their first win and remain perfect against the spread. The Falcons, who are 6-2-1 ATS over their last 9 road games, are one of the best "live" underdogs on the Week 3 slate.

Las Vegas Raiders ML -125

The Raiders can not afford to drop to a 0-3 in the highly competitive AFC West, making their matchup with the Titans an early season "must-win" game. On Sunday, they will face a Titans team led by Derrick Henry. Tennessee lacks any true game-breakers outside of their star running back. Look for Davante Adams to score for the third straight game and with an affordable price being offered on the money line, all Las Vegas will need to do is "Just Win Baby" in order for us to cash this investment.

Buffalo vs. Miami Over 53

Looking for the best Week 3 game total to exploit? Well, look no further than the AFC East showdown between the high-powered Dolphins and Bills. Flying under the radar are the injury issues that the Buffalo Bills have suffered to their defense. The Bills have officially ruled out safety Micah Hyde, defensive tackles Ed Oliver and Jordan Phillips, as well as cornerback Dane Jackson for Sunday's game in Miami. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill against a defense missing two important starters in the secondary is a recipe for a high-scoring game against a Buffalo offense we know will put points on the board.
