NFL Predictions

This article uses betting market data to help you make more informed NFL predictions ahead of this week’s round of games.

Denver Broncos at Green Bay Packers predictions

Team

Win

Denver Broncos

24.20%

Green Bay Packers 

75.80%

The Green Bay Packers seemingly flew under the radar during the preseason but after two wins from two games, the market is beginning to respect the team led by Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are -7.5 at home to the Denver Broncos, who are still winless this season after defeats to the Oakland Raiders and Chicago Bears.

Despite Green Bay’s successes in the opening two games, this will likely be a game focussed on defence – the Over/Under is currently set at 44.

Odds prediction: 26-18 Green Bay Packers win

Bet now: Denver Broncos at Green Bay Packers odds

Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles predictions

Team

Win

Detroit Lions

29.55%

Philadelphia Eagles

70.45%

The Detroit Lions would have surprised a few with their 13-10 win over the LA Chargers in Week 2. The Philadelphia Eagles were also involved in a surprise result. Unfortunately for them, that was going down 24-20 to the Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles are listed as the favourite once again at -6.

This could also be a game of plenty of points with the Over/Under sitting on 46 at the moment.

Odds prediction: 26-20 Philadelphia Eagles win

Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs predictions

Team

Win

 Baltimore Ravens

31.39%

Kansas City Chiefs

68.61%

The Kansas City Chiefs were high on the list of Super Bowl contenders at the start of the season. After two games, it looks like they’re living up to those high expectations with two convincing wins. At -5.5, the betting market believes the Chiefs will make it three wins from three against ther Baltimore Ravens.

These two teams are also strong on offence which has resulted in the highest total on the board at 52.

Odds prediction: 28-23 Kansas City Chiefs win

Bet now: Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs odds

Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills predictions

Team

Win

Cincinnati Bengals

30.29%

Buffalo Bills

69.71%

After a promising performance against the Seattle Seahawks (albeit a losing one), the Cincinnati Bengals were a major disappointment against the San Francisco 49ers when losing 41-17. The Buffalo Bills meanwhile continued their good start with a 28-14 win over the New York Giants.

The Bills are favourites to get the win in this game with a Handicap mark of -6. Their strong defensive side of the game is pointing to a low points total – the Over/Under is 44.

Odds prediction: 24-19 Buffalo Bills win

Bet now: Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills odds

Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts predictions

Team

Win

Atlanta Falcons

47.37%

Indianapolis Colts

52.63%

Both the Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts came out surprise winners in Week 2 – the Falcons’ 24-20 win was perhaps slightly more surprising than the Colt’s 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans. Jacoby Brissett is settling into his role as the Colts’ starting quarterback and with home field advantage, they are favoured over the Falcons just 1 point.

The Over/Under for this game is currently hovering around the league average for points in a game at 43.5.

Odds prediction: 26-17 Minnesota Vikings win

Bet now: Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts odds

Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings predictions

Team

Win

Oakland Raiders

22.08%

Minnesota Vikings

77.92%

After a good win against the Denver Broncos on the opening weekend, the Oakland Raiders struggled against the Kansas City Chiefs and lost 28-10 at home. The Minnesota Vikings started the season well with a good home win against the Atlanta Falcons but were then beaten 21-16 by the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. The odds suggest Minnesota should win this one at -8.

The Over/Under for this game is currently hovering around the league average for points in a game at 43.5.

Odds prediction: 26-17 Minnesota Vikings win

New York Jets at New England Patriots predictions

Team

Win

New York Jets

6.55%

New England Patriots

93.45%

The New York Jets have really struggled this season, things didn’t look to bad after a close 17-16 defeat to the Buffalo Bills but they barely troubled the Cleveland Browns in a 23-2 defeat in Week 2. The New England Patriots, by contrast, have two wins from two and have looked as strong as ever (conceding just 3 points so far this season).

Given the disparity in strength of these two sides, coupled with the Jets injury issues, it’s no surprise to see a high handicap mark of -22 on the Patriots. Despite the expected wide margin of victory, the Over/Under is still relatively low at 43.5.

Odds prediction: 33-10 New England Patriots win

Bet now: New York Jets at New England Patriots odds

Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys predictions

Team

Win

Miami Dolphins

6.51%

Dallas Cowboys

93.49%

The Miami Dolphins look to be in big trouble this season. They are following up their 59-10 Week 1 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens with a heavy shutout loss to the New England Patriots in Week 2 (43-0). The Dolphins opponents in Week 3, the 2-0 Dallas Cowboys, are listed as a 22.5-point favourites in the market.

The bulk of the points are expected to come from the Cowboys, so the more the market moves on them, the more we could see the 47.5 Over/Under move.

Odds prediction: 34-13 Dallas Cowboys win

New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers predictions

Team

Win

New York Giants

29.80%

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

70.20%

The New York Giants seem to be really struggling this season. They’ve already chalked up 35-17 and 28-14 losses to the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills respectively. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost out to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 (31-17) but came good against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 (20-14).

The fragilities of the New York Giants’ defence means the Buccaneers are listed at -6 in the Handicap market with an Over/Under total of 48 currently available.

Odds prediction: 27-21 Tampa Bay Buccaneers win

Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals predictions

Team

Win

Carolina Panthers

45.59%

Arizona Cardinals

54.41%

While losing the first two games of the season will be frustrating for the Carolina Panthers, the health of their quarterback Cam Newton will be a bigger concern. With Newton’s potential issues, the Panthers are +2.5 on the road to the Arizona Cardinals. However, the Cardinals appear to have quarterback issues of their own with the rookie Kyler Murray not starting the season as he would have hoped.

Despite apparent issues at quarterback for both teams, the market is expecting a slightly above average points total with the Over/Under at 43.5.

Odds prediction: 23-20 Arizona Cardinals win

Bet now: Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals odds

Houston Texans at LA Chargers predictions

Team

Win

Houston Texans

39.45%

LA Chargers

60.55%

The Houston Texans got their first win of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 but they seemed to make hard work of it, eventually coming out 13-12 winners. The LA Chargers lost out in a similarly low-scoring contest against the Indianapolis Colts (13-10) despite being the favourites.

The LA Chargers have been installed as favourites for this game at -3, while the odds suggest there could be a few points put on the board as the Over/Under has been posted at 48.

Odds prediction: 23-21 Cincinnati Bengals win

Bet now: Houston Texans at LA Chargers odds

LA Rams at Cleveland Browns predictions

Team

Win

LA Rams

59.88%

Cleveland Browns

40.12%

The LA Rams benefitted from an injury to Drew Brees when they overcame their NFC rivals the New Orleans Saints 27-9 in Week 2. The Cleveland Browns were victims of the biggest shock in Week 1 before getting a comfortable 23-3 win over the New York Jets in Week 3.

Despite being on the road, the Rams are listed as 3-point favourites for this game and with two strong offences, the betting market is expecting points with the Over/Under listed at 47.5.

Odds prediction: 26-23 LA Chargers win

Bet now: LA Rams at Cleveland Browns odds

Chicago Bears at Washington Redskins predictions

Team

Win

Chicago Bears

63.94%

Washington Redskins

36.06%

The final game of Week 3 in the NFL sees the Chicago Bears travelling to the Washington Redskins. The Bears only managed a field goal against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1 and although they only put up 16 points against the Broncos, it was good enough to win (16-14). The Redskins were always second best to the Cowboys in their 31-21 loss, their second loss in two games after a 32-27 result against the Philadelphia Eagles in the opening weekend.

The Bears have one of, if not the strongest, defences in the league so it’s no surprise to see them listed at -4, despite being on the road. The strength of the Bears’ defence has also influenced the Over/Under which is set at a low 41.5.

Odds prediction: 23-19 Chicago Bears win
