NFL Betting – Week 3 Preview

Week 3 in NFL betting has a number of fascinating story lines including a battle of unbeatens on Monday night as the Green Bay Packers battle the Chicago Bears on ESPN.

That game should be the culmination of an exciting week of NFL odds at Sbgglobal.

The top early game in Week 3 is in New Orleans as the defending Super Bowl champion Saints battle the Atlanta Falcons.  It was thought before the season began that the Falcons would be the challenger to New Orleans but they have to prove first that they can beat the Saints.

Cowboys Badly Need a Win – The Dallas Cowboys were one of the Super Bowl favorites but they have started 0-2 and they are underdogs this week at Houston.  Can you say 0-3 for the rotten Cowboys?  Wade Phillips should have been fired long ago so perhaps changes will be on the way if the Cowboys lose this one.

Steelers and Bucs Unbeaten – How about Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay for an early season battle of unbeatens?  Who would have ever thought that would be possible?  The Steelers are still without Ben Roethlisberger but their defense has been superb.  Tampa Bay hasn’t played anyone of note but they still have two wins and there are not many teams that can say that.

Jets at Miami – The NBC game on Sunday night matches up the New York Jets at the Miami Dolphins.  The Dolphins have started the season at 2-0 and look like serious contenders to win the AFC East. If they can defeat the Jets in this prime time matchup they would really stamp themselves as a challenger for the division title.

Other Games in Week 3 – Other matchups in NFL odds for Week 3 have Tennessee at the New York Giants, Cincinnati at Carolina, Cleveland at Baltimore, San Francisco at Kansas City, Detroit at Minnesota, Buffalo at New England, and Philadelphia at Jacksonville, Washington at St. Louis, Oakland at Arizona, San Diego at Seattle and Indianapolis at Denver.  The last of those games should get the bulk of the attention in NFL betting since it is the late afternoon game on CBS.  The Broncos are always tough at home but they are the underdogs in this matchup against Peyton Manning and the Colts.
