Another week, another day of trying to find ways to make money on football. Yes, Week 3 is here and we're going to see where a few dollars can be made this weekend.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Cincinnati Bengals
Spread: PHI - 4.5
Moneyline: PHI -220; CIN +190
Total: o/u 47.5
The Eagles will have "home field advantage" for the second week in a row as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals who are coming off a long week following a Thursday night loss against Cleveland in Week 2. Any other year and the Eagles would be in the most advantageous situation of having a rookie quarterback coming into a hostile situation at the Linc. This isn't the case as Joe Burrow will come in trying to earn his stripes against a winless Philly team.
Smart Money: PHI ML
There's no way right? No way the Eagles drop three straight games to start the year, two of which being against the two worst teams in the league last year. The moneyline seems like the safest bet here because while both teams are capable of getting into a shootout with each other, you just never know. And the spread at 4.5 seems too wide after the last two games; look for the Eagles to grind out a scrappy win.
GB @ NO o53
Not giving these two teams 53 points this week feels wrong. Especially considering the Saints' defense performance in blowing my parlay last week against the Raiders. This seems like an easy bet to get over 53; it looks high but feels doable.
TB -5.5 @ Den
Tampa Bay finally found a use for Leonard Fournette last week and Denver has the choice between Jeff Driskel and Blake Bortles to start on Sunday. Tampa will just be too much for the Broncos.
NE, PIT, IND, TB, ARI
Good luck, bet safe!
