Swinger is back for Week 3 of the NFL season and looking to crush your bookmakers. Let’s take a look at what the NFL odds makers are dealing and cash those tickets!

Swinger's Overall 2016 NFL Record: 8-4 (after Week 2)
I always say the only person who wants to listen to a bad beat story is the one telling it. Therefore, I will save you the time of listening to my tale of woe concerning the Colts' late blown cover against the Broncos, when Denver trotted in a pick-six in the closing minute of the game to change a winning ATS cover into a gut-wrenching loser. Even then I couldn't resist sharing.

That was one of two losers in my NFL picks, as the other came via “under” in the Dolphins/Patriots game that never stood a chance with the emergence of New England quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo striking for three touchdowns before he was sidelined with a shoulder injury.

My only winner came courtesy of the Cleveland Browns covering due to my diligent shopping of the best sports betting sites and getting a superior early line. The Brownies were well in front but ultimately dropped a 25-20 decision to the Ravens which was not enough to overcome my seven-point head start at 5Dimes.com, where you will find a 50% free play sing up bonus. In separate write-ups I went 1-1, therefore my overall Week 2 tally was 2-3, rendering an 8-4 record on the season.

Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans Prediction (Total)
The Oakland Raiders are the first team since the 1970 merger to surrender 500 yards in their first two games of the season. However, their offense is spinning like a top under the aegis of Derek Carr and his twin terrors on the outside Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. This is a pass heavy offense with a porous defense facing a multi-dimensional Titans offense that will ring up plenty of points. Yes, Tennessee's defense gives me cause for pause but they are not the 2016 version of the Steel Curtain so let's not get carried away. The total is high for a reason and we are unafraid. Get high on this one.

Free NFL Pick: Over 46 ½

Cleveland Browns vs. Miami Dolphins Prediction
Have you just about had it with the Browns? Yes, that was a rhetorical question but their performance last week, unable to hold a 20-0 lead against the Ravens, merely adds another layer of incompetence in what has become a franchise known for it. The Dolphins lost last week but have to be buoyed by their second half evisceration of a beleaguered Patriots' defense. Miami has played two top teams in Seattle and New England very tough. They get a patsy strolling into their lair this week. Lay it.

Free NFL Pick: Dolphins -9 ½

San Diego Chargers vs. Indianapolis Colts Prediction (Total)
Neither team can stop the other and both offenses are built for points. This one will be a shootout and don't worry about the total that the NFL odds makers are hanging in the low 50's. Ain't nothin' but a thang. The Chargers have put up 65 points in the first two weeks while the Colts have notched 55, which is only as low as it is because they played the toughest defense in the league last week in the Denver Broncos. This one could be in the 30's before the half. Get over it.

Free NFL Pick: Over 51 ½
Best Line Offered: at Heritage.

The Woodman's Corner (1-1)
For those who don't know, my good friend the Woodman has had five consecutive winning seasons and killed it last year to the tune of 70 percent winners with his one pick per week. This week he has scanned the slate of NFL odds and has chosen the Chicago Bears +7 at Bookmaker.com to be the fairest (and sharpest) choice in all the land.

Free NFL Pick: Bears +7
