We've got another 11 exhibition games coming up on a very busy Saturday. Four of the teams involved are trying to beat the preseason NFL odds for the first time.

Like the song says, it's a lovely 11 morning. There are 11 players on a football team, and there are 11 games coming up on the Week 3 NFL preseason slate. One two three four five six... better go straight to our NFL football picks.


Steelers vs. Bills 
We took the Bills when we first looked at the NFL odds for this game, and we're going to stick with them despite the arrival of QB Michael Vick in Pittsburgh – he's not ready yet.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Bills –2.5 (–115) at The Greek


Falcons vs. Dolphins
Yup, we're still fading Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin. He's 4-10 ATS in the preseason.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Falcons +3.5 (+102) at Pinnacle


Browns vs. Buccaneers
The Browns have dropped both their exhibition games ATS, and QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) is expected to sit out until the regular season.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Buccaneers –2.5 (–105) at BetCRIS


Vikings vs. Cowboys
The Vikings are 3-0 ATS, the Cowboys are 0-2 ATS, and Dallas head coach Jason Garrett is 5-13 ATS lifetime.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Vikings +1.5 at LooseLines


N.Y. Jets at N.Y. Giants (7:00 p.m. ET)
Jets back-up QB Bryce Petty got the job done last week, and they've also picked up QB Josh Johnson from the Cincinnati Bengals.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Jets PK (+105) at Island Casino


Bears vs. Bengals
The Bears are 2-0 ATS this preseason under new head coach John Fox. They seem to be taking this quite seriously after last year's debacle.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Bears +4 (–105) at WagerWeb


Redskins vs. Ravens 
Washington is 2-0 ATS this year, but Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh is 18-12 ATS lifetime, and Washington LB Junior Galette (Achilles) is out for the season.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Ravens –4 (-106) at GTBets


Seahawks vs. Chargers 
Time to get back on the Seattle bus: Pete Carroll is 26-12-1 ATS in exhibition games.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Seahawks –2.5 (-108) at Youwager


Eagles vs. Packers
The Eagles are 2-0 ATS this year, and it looks like Aaron Rodgers won't be playing quarterback for Green Bay this week.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Eagles –4.5 (–120) at Bovada


Colts vs. Rams
Neither team has cashed in this preseason, and we took the UNDER with our original pick. We'll fade the home faves in a classic underdog-UNDER combo.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Colts +3 (–120) at Bovada


Niners vs. Broncos
The Broncos are 2-0 ATS this year, new head coach Gary Kubiak is 21-11-2 in the preseason, and the Niners are the Niners.
Free NFL Pick: Take the Broncos –5 (-106) at Heritage
