Where to bet on the NFL in NJ

Week 3 betting breakdown

NY Jets at Cleveland (-3): No regional bias in this matchup, despite bettors taking the Jets all preseason. Cleveland may have a new placekicker by Thursday night. Interesting note: While most of the book posted 40 or 40.5 for the total, 888sport has 43 with -143 on the under (+117 on the over) as of Thursday afternoon.

Colts at Eagles (-7): Carson Wentz will return under center for the Eagles, which leaves Philly as the considerable favorite. Wentz has won his last eight starts at home and is 12-2 there overall (11-3 ATS).

Saints at Falcons (-3): Recency bias might be a factor here with the Saints failing to cover their first two games this year. The Falcons have won 3 of the last 4 at home against their division rivals.

49ers at Chiefs (-6): Intriguing matchup of two rising star QBs. Books offering the total have it at 55.5 or higher, the biggest one so far this season.

Raiders at Dolphins (-3): Miami gets the nod despite losing to Oakland at home last year. Dolphins bettors could avoid the half-point kicker at FanDuel as of Monday afternoon.

Bills at Vikings (-16.5): This might be the biggest spread we see all season. Since the start of last season, Minnesota is 9-1 at home (6-3 ATS with two half-point misses).

Bengals at Panthers (-3): Despite the 2-0 (SU and ATS) start, the Bengals finds themselves underdogs on the road. The last time Carolina hosted Cincinnati was 2010, a win by Carson Palmer.

Titans at Jaguars (-9.5): Both teams coming off emotional wins in Week 2, Tennessee winning without Marcus Mariota. The Jags have won 3 of the last 4 at home to the Titans.

Packers (-3) at Redskins: If Aaron Rodgers practices more this week than last, watch for this line to move. Fun fact: Rodgers is 0-2 at Fedex Field. His only win over Washington was in the 2015 Wild Card round.

Broncos at Ravens (-6): Denver makes it 3-for-3 this week in teams traveling two time zones or more opening as significant underdogs. Joe Flacco is 2-1 against Denver at home, a team that hasn’t visited Baltimore since 2012.

Giants at Texans (-6.5): Two teams looking for their first win. Houston making its home debut.  Eli Manning has won all three starts against Houston.

Chargers at Rams (-7): This is an intriguing matchup that could see significant line movement over the week. William Hill opened it at a full touchdown and most of the other books have followed.

Bears (-6.5) at Cardinals: Bold call here by William Hill to open the Bears a sizable favorite on a short week and traveling. The line has moved to 5.5 as of Sunday morning.

Cowboys at Seahawks (-1): Two underachieving teams at the start of the year, but Dallas got a win last Sunday at home. Now traveling to Seattle to face the 12th man as a short underdog.

Patriots (-6.5) at Lions: This seems easy: Patriots HC Bill Belichick is excellent against his former assistants and is 4-0 against Detroit.

Steelers (-1) at Bucs: FitzMagic is a dog — again. The Steelers are favorites despite Le’Veon Bell’s holdout — again.
