Let’s take a quick look at some of the games on Tap Sunday!
Las Vegas blew up a 20-point lead at the end of the first half last week against basics Heading to Nashville as the favorite with 0.5 points to face the win titans 3-8 ATS team over the last 11 games, including 0-2 this season.
Joe Borough He is the most sacked (13) quarterback in the NFL. Cincinnati, a 4.5-point home favorite, will try to support its own protection cases against a Planes The one that upset the Bengals, 34-31, was 11.5 points at home last season.
The Chargers are a perfect 8-1 SU and 9-0 ATS in their last nine encounters against Jacksonville going back to 2010. However, the quarterback will play Justin Herbert (ribs) a suit? If he plays, will it be effective enough to cover the 6.5 point difference?
So, which games stand out as the best bets? Sports Illustrated is here to help. Let’s see what our team thinks are the contest locks in Week 3.
Jane Biacenti: Bills -4.5
The dolphins He looked great last week against the beating Baltimore Minor, but don’t expect the same kind of performance versus a juggernaut Invoices The team with 17 points this season is averaging 36 points per game.
Matt Ehalt: Raiders -0.5
The titans She looked so miserable, and took the match home giants Then they are destroyed on Mondays against the bills. The Raiders She was at least competitive in both games, albeit at losses. Something seems only with titans and Ryan Taneyhill Doesn’t play well. Davant Adams He needs to be fed early and often in this disappointing post-match against basics Las Vegas escaped Nashville with its first win of the season.
Michael Fabiano: Rams -3.5
The Cardinals achieve a massive victory over the Raiders, but I don’t see them building on that victory. The rams They had their number over the last 11 games, losing once (9-1-1) on the points difference. Los Angeles is also a perfect 7-0 game against the spread in Arizona’s last seven games.
Sean Childs: Colts +6.5
with the mighty heads Rolling around in the city and ponies fall into the registry JacksonvilleEasy play should be Kansas City. Indy played her first two games on the road without the best full-back (Chuck Leonard). It is expected to come back with Michael Batemangiving the ponies a bump in play on either side of the ball. Patrick Mahomes He threw five touchdowns in Week 1, but his petition struggled to offer plays for chargers (10/116/1). Jonathan Taylor He should be the difference maker in this game, leading to coverage of – at least – Indianapolis.
Connor Lamb: Black +7.5
Dan Campbell He may have fallen asleep while watching Kirk Cousins sleep walking VikingsPeak snooze with another secondary valence Monday Night Football Performance, but do not expect black To show any symptoms of drowsiness that result from a stout win in Week Two as they travel across Lake Michigan to take on their NFC North rivals. Cousins will probably bounce back after returning to his comfort zone at 1 p.m., but strong blows Normal Jared Goff He found rhythm in the Detroit offensive with his sophomore lover Amon-Ra Saint Brownand the second general selection Aidan Hutchinson It will bring consistent pressure against the suspected O-Line in Minnesota. The Lions are between 13 and 6 ATS since Campbell took the helm in 2021, so you should feel confident with a touchdown-plus this week. perfect 10.
Matt de Lima: Eagles -4.5
Predicting the best team in NFC is up for debate, but I think it is the Eagles. Philly is fifth in total DVOA and offers amazing balance and efficiency in attack. beating leaders It will be a small step for this season, and another big game of Galen Hurts He could prove to be a huge leap in his third year.
Craig Allenport: Bengals -4.5
After 0-2 start, the Bengals Get only what they need. The Planes They may show that it won’t be an easy task for everyone, but they don’t have what it takes to take advantage of Cincinnati’s biggest weaknesses. Joe Borough He took a beating behind a porous attack line, but the planes were near the bottom of the pack in bags during two games. With a sense of urgency and little time to throw, the Burrow and the Bengals get a comfortable win.
Bill Enright: Jaguar +6.5
Crescent Jaguar Good? They smoked ponies in Week 2 and were within driving distance of hitting the Leaders in Week 1. Trevor Lawrence It is 0-9 in road games. Peyton Manning started his 0-9 career on the road as well. Manning’s first road victory came in his 10th game on the road, and yes, that came against the Charger. Weird coincidence that really makes no sense how to play this game? definitely. But who cares, let’s have some fun!
Kyle Wood: crows -2.5
I bet on crows Jumps to an early introduction to patriots And do not calm down after the collapse in the last quarter of last week. The Patriots’ defense held out for two games, but A Lamar JacksonThe team led team presents a unique challenge that this unit will not be able to slow down in the fourth quarter, especially the way he was able to overcome the defenses so deeply. Even if Bill Belichick is able to contain Baltimore, I don’t trust the New England offensive to put up enough points to stay with the Ravens. This should have been a convincing win on the road for team John Harbaugh, although I appreciate the security cover for an expanse of less than a field goal.
Doug Vasquez: Raiders -0.5
This week’s best bet perfect 10 No brainer: Raiders -0.5! I know they’re going to come out of a disaster in week two, losing to the Cardinals at the OT, but that shouldn’t stop you from making this your best bet of the week. Titans are simply not good at football. Ryan Tanehill was put on the bench in Week 2, and defenses slowed Derek Henry And they just waived 41 points for the bills because they’re ready to take on another offense with the ability to set scores. I’m expecting a breakout match from Davante Adams and for Derek Carr To spread it on all his weapons.
Connor Orr: Jaguar +6.5
I like Jaguars getting 6.5 points against Chargers. This is a team that plays like it did during the Trevor Lawrence era, and they barely blended in Travis Etiennewho has a chance to be one of the most dynamic playmakers in the league. Justin Herbert He’s also coming off a rib injury and is facing a dynamic Jaguar front who has some quick passing talent. Fold it all together and you’ll at least get a game recipe closer than 6.5 points.
Frankie Tado: Raiders -0.5
I’m going back to the well for the second week in a row. Sharp Raiders failed last week when they took their foot off the gas pedal in the second half against the Cardinals and blew up a 20-point lead at the break. The Titans have only covered three of their last 11 games because they would struggle so hard if teams shut down Derek Henry. The Silver and the Lions can’t go down to 0-3 in the highly competitive West Asian Championship if they have any aspirations beyond the season. “JUST WIN BABY” and that’s all the Raiders have to do with Pick’em’s default spread.
