NFL Best Bets Week 3 (2022)
After a good weekend of games and bets, it’s time to look into what’s going on around the NFL in Week 3. There are a lot of great games and some divisional battles. Let’s start with the AFC East, specifically the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins…
Buffalo Bills -6 (-110)
In recent history, the Buffalo Bills have owned the Dolphins and Josh Allen plays some of his best games against them. The Dolphins looked very good last weekend in their comeback win vs. the Ravens, but this Bills team is different. The Buffalo Bills are near the top of the NFL in sacks and QB pressures while being in the bottom of the league in blitzing. This means that they are getting pressure without blitzing and allowing more players to play in coverage. The Bills are also covering the spread each game by over 20 points… I bet they can cover six.
Buffalo Bills Game Props
*Player props unavailable at this time*
First Quarter Total Point Range 14-20 (+300)
The Bills have had a hot start to every game so far this season and I don’t expect that to change this week. The Bills will score an opening drive touchdown and I can see them scoring again in the first quarter. The Dolphins have big play potential and have proven they can move the ball. I see them putting up points in the first quarter as well.
Highest Scoring Half: Second (+105)
In both of these teams’ games last week, the second half was a much higher-scoring affair than the first half. If the Dolphins are down early, they can still come out in the second half and try to make it a game. I bet this is going to be a competitive game with a lot of scoring.
Over 5.5 Touchdowns (-135)
In the first two games alone, the Bills have put up four and five touchdowns, making this one of the easiest bets available. The Dolphins are going to score at least one touchdown, maybe two, this week and the Bills should get at least four of their own.
Around the NFL
Kansas City Chiefs -6 (-110)
This is one of those surefire bets. The Chiefs are a good team and can move the ball and score against anyone. This week, they play the Colts, who are one of the biggest disappointments of the season so far. They lost by 24 to the Jags last week and tied the Texans Week 1. The Colts offense has looked terrible, not putting up a single point last week. They couldn’t get anything going and, while that probably won’t happen again, I don’t see them putting up much of a fight against the Chiefs.
San Francisco 49ers -1 (-120)
There was a report out saying that the 49ers back Jimmy Garoppolo more than Trey Lance. This is a good sign for this team going forward, they should be able to continue winning. This week, they play the Broncos who, like the Colts, look bad so far. Nathaniel Hackett has seemed completely unable to coach this team and it seems like they need more time to gel before they become a real threat. You can bet the 49ers should win this game.
New York Giants -1 (-110)
Brian Daboll has turned this team around and they look like they are going to compete this year. They have a divisional game vs. the Cowboys, who have some injury issues. Their defense still looks good but their offense has been struggling. The Giants have found a way to win both of their first two games in close fashion. This game should be no different, a close game ending in a Giants win.
