The sequel to NFL Week 1 action did not disappoint, as Week 2 saw a lot of surprising performances by players and teams with something to prove. Here are our best moneyline bets for NFL Week 3.
Week 2 showcased all kinds of madness during the proverbial witching hour. Several unlikely teams are now off to surprisingly good starts as the standings begin to take their early shape. Which teams will finish Week 3 in the winners’ circle?
NFL Week 3 Moneyline Picks
Ravens-Patriots ML Pick
Ravens (-155) ★★★★★
Week 2 was nothing short of a disaster for the Baltimore Ravens, who led the Miami Dolphins 28-7 at the half before ultimately losing 42-38. A 1-1 start isn’t ideal for the Ravens, but they’ve also averaged 31 points per game so far. At minimum, the offense is firing on all cylinders.
The same can’t be said for the New England Patriots, who also boast a 1-1 record despite scoring a combined 24 points through two games. Quarterback Mac Jones improved on his Week 1 performance in Week 2, but that’s not saying much as he’s thrown a pedestrian two touchdowns and two interceptions so far. The Pats will be in tough against the Ravens, despite being at home.

Packers-Buccaneers ML Pick
Packers (+115) ★★★★
A Week 2 bounce-back win was absolutely necessary for the Green Bay Packers, and they got it done in a 27-10 victory over the Chicago Bears. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had only 25 pass attempts in this one, as Green Bay has the luxury of rushing the ball with two high-quality running backs in Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been decent at limiting the run so far this season, but they will be missing some key players heading into Week 3. Top wide receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are guaranteed to be out, due to injury and suspension, respectively. Other wideouts who have recently been listed as questionable include Julio Jones, Russell Gage, and Breshad Perriman. The Packers have an opportunity to win with underdog odds against a Bucs team that is far from full strength.
Falcons-Seahawks ML Pick
Falcons (+111) ★★★★
The Atlanta Falcons have kicked off their season with an 0-2 record, which is what many expected. What is surprising, however, is the nature of their losses so far. Week 1 saw them fall to the New Orleans Saints by just a single point, and the Los Angeles Rams barely closed them out in Week 2.
The Seattle Seahawks are likely a better team than the Falcons, but they’re also averaging just 12 points per game so far. That number pales in comparison to the 26.5 points being averaged by Atlanta, against good defenses no less. The Seahawks will certainly be the easiest team that the Falcons have faced this season, and Seattle could struggle to win if the game becomes a shootout.
