Like in NFL Week 2, the league has two games on Monday, Eagles at Buccaneers and Rams at Bengals. Keep reading for NFL odds, analysis, and free ATS picks for every game in a loaded NFL Week 3.

New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco’s defense should dominate a Giant’s offense without running back Saquon Barkley. The Giants got their offense going versus the Arizona Cardinals to rally for a win in NFL Week 2, but the 49ers are a much different team.

It’s tough to lay 10. However, the Niners are better than the G-men in every phase of the game.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: San Francisco 49ers

Tennessee Titans vs. Cleveland Browns

  • When: Sunday, September 24th, 2023. 1:00pm EST.
  • Where: Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland, OH
  • NFL Odds: Titans (+4) // Browns (-4)

Tennessee rallied against the Browns to score their first win of the season. But things won’t be easy versus a Browns squad that boasts the great Myles Garrett and other top level defenders.

Tannehill should play a lot of this game on his back. So going with the Browns makes sense.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Cleveland Browns

Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions

Detroit is a popular play. The Lions opened at -3, but less than 24 hours after blowing a game against the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit is at -4.

The ATL beat Green Bay by a point as a +2 home dog in their last. The Falcons have the type of rushing attack led by Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier that will keep the ball out of Jared Goff’s hands. Go with the Southern Birds to cash.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Atlanta Falcons

New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers

How will Jordan Love handle the Saints’ defensive pressure? That’s the big question. Unless New Orleans suffers injuries in their Monday night game versus the Panthers, New Orleans should have the edge in this one.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: New Orleans Saints

Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins

After watching Sean Payton coached Denver implode after building a 21-3 lead over Washington on Sunday, it’s impossible to back the Ponies versus the Fins. Sure, Payton is a good coach, or was, and, yes, Russell Wilson is a good quarterback, or was. You get what we’re saying.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Miami Dolphins

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Bolts blew another game, which means the Chargers will have zero confidence heading to Minnesota. The Vikings made a bunch of miscues and turnovers but still lost to the Eagles by just 6. Minnesota breaks out with an impressive win.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Minnesota Vikings

New England Patriots vs. New York Jets

  • When: Sunday, September 24th, 2023. 1:00pm EST.
  • Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
  • NFL Odds: Patriots (-3) // Jets (+3)

The Patriots’ defense did an excellent job holding the Dolphins to 24 points. The Patriot’s offense didn’t step it up versus Miami. Mac Jones could struggle against the Jets, but the Pats have the edge because Zach Wilson shouldn’t be starting at quarterback.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: New England Patriots

Buffalo Bills vs. Washington Commanders

Buffalo played great to demolish the Raiders. But on Sunday, Josh Allen and his crew head to D.C. to take on a Commanders squad that rallied and beat Denver on the road. Allen will have trouble versus the best defensive line in the NFL. Taking the 6.5 points makes sense.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Washington Commanders

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The key play in Jags versus Chiefs was Doug Pederson calling a quarterback bootleg on the 1- yard line instead of using 3 straight plays to run up the gut. If the Jags had scored a TD on that series, who knows?

In any case, Jacksonville knows they blew a shot to take down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Jags release the full force of their frustrations onto C.J. Stroud and the Texans.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars

Indianapolis Colts vs. Baltimore Ravens

Gardner Minshew is a decent quarterback. So much so that although the Ravens have played great in 2 games, it’s difficult to back Baltimore at -7.5 versus the Colts. Indy’s defense is decent and if Minshew plays within the confines of the offense or, better yet, Anthony Richardson misses zero time due to suffering a concussion, the Colts cover.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Indianapolis Colts

Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks

Carolina’s offensive line is a disaster, but the Panthers will bring the better defense into this game. The key is how Seattle responds at home after rallying in overtime to beat the Lions in NFL Week 2. Our guess is Seattle lays an egg. Seahawks may win, but they don’t win by more than 3.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Carolina Panthers

Chicago Bears vs. Kansas City Chiefs

  • When: Sunday, September 24th, 2023. 4:25pm EST.
  • Where: GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO
  • NFL Odds: Bears (+13) // Chiefs (-13)

12.5 points feels like a lot. But it’s so difficult to back the Bears. Chicago’s offense should be better than it is. The defense is a complete disaster. So Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will throw up TD after TD.

However, this game is difficult to handicap. Why? The Chiefs were terrible against the spread last season. So although it's Chicago, taking the points is the play.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Chicago Bears

Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals play with a lot of emotion. Arizona might be the hardest trying team in the NFL. Emotion and trying hard won’t be enough to block the hurricane that is Micah Parsons.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Dallas Cowboys

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Las Vegas Raiders

The Raiders have the more experienced quarterback and this happens on their field. Vegas gets the win and cover.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Las Vegas Raiders

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baker has thrown for 490 yards and 3 touchdowns without a pick. The Buccaneers’ defense is playing better than the Eagles’ D and Philadelphia has yet to get their offense going like they did last season. Back Tampa to cash.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Rams have a lot of young players that put forth a great effort. But on Monday, LAR faces a desperate 0-2 Cincinnati squad.

Joe Burrow is banged up. No problem. What Cincinnati must do is stick to the basics. If they do that, they win this by 6 to 7.

2023 NFL Week 3 Pick: Cincinnati Bengals
