Our NFL predictions continue for Week 3 of the regular season and we’re looking to land a 5/1-plus handicap treble on Sunday’s matches covered live by Sky Sports.
The Giants let us down last weekend after a couple of earlier winners. This time we’re siding with one underdog and two favourites as we seek to take on the spread.
New Orleans +3.5 points at Atlanta @ 4/5
Drew Brees is still delivering the goods at quarterback for the Saints and has some speedy targets in Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Alvin Kamara. New Orleans also improved on defence between an opening loss to Tampa Bay and last week’s hard-fought triumph over Cleveland. The Falcons are a likeable franchise but their early-season injury problems are a big concern, especially with wide receiver Julio Jones skipping practice.
LA Rams -6.5 points vs LA Chargers @ 83/100
The Rams were one of our pre-season fancies for Super Bowl glory and have only enhanced their reputation with a couple of early wins. Crucially for punters betting on the spread, Sean McVay showed no signs of easing up when in front during last week’s 34-0 demolition of Arizona. With star running back Todd Gurley attracting all the attention from opposition defences, underrated QB Jared Goff is also getting opportunities to shine.
New England -6.5 points at Detroit @ 87/100
Tom Brady and Co were roughed up by Jacksonville’s stellar defence last time out but Detroit are a long way behind the Jaguars in that department. The Patriots have also upgraded their receiving options with the acquisition of deep threat Josh Gordon from Cleveland and he can instantly help to stretch the field. The 0-2 Lions lost 48-17 to the Jets and were flattered by a final scoreline of 27-30 in San Francisco when bagging a couple of fourth-quarter consolation touchdowns.
