Westgate has released Advanced Lines for the NFL Regular Season Week 3 and although not the best week for entertaining matchups, there are some solid games on the schedule.
Looking at the NFL Regular Season Week 3 Advanced Lines released Tuesday afternoon we have a schedule dominated by what honestly look like some pretty boring early season games, but we’ll always that reality have in 17 weeks of scheduled games with more than half of the league constantly in rebuilding mode.
So, we end up having fewer quality QBs who can have decent length careers and teams finding it harder to build around the key position as it’s so hard to find quality QBs these days. Ask the Texans or the Broncos or the 49ers or the Bears about this. And in the often cruel Digital Age, mocking bad QBs seems more fashionable than praising the future Hall of Fame Quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady who we are still lucky enough to witness performing their craft. How in the name of Johnny Unitas did I get on this damn sanctimonious soapbox? Please, get me down Pablo.
Anyway, back on Earth here, the Ravens (8-8 SU, 7-7-2 ATS) will play the Jaguars at historic Wembley Stadium in Wembley, London next Sunday in the league’s first NFL game in England this 2017 Regular Season in a chance for one of these two AFC teams to get off to a nice start, Week 2 results depending of course. The Trends show the Jaguars are 4-1-1 ATS L6 vs. the Ravens but the way The tackling Edgar Allen Poe’s played in Week 1 just begs for some recency bias. But these two teams are pretty even and whomever returns Home across the pond with the Win will be in a great mood while this time, at least, we won’t have to worry about the losing team’s Head Coach being fired upon his return to the Lower 48.
Also on tap, Brees and the Saints are in soggy Charlotte to face Cam Newton and the Panthers (6-10 SU, 6-9-1 ATS in 2016) next Sunday in a huge early-season NFC South matchup. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are “on the Road again,” this time at Nissan Stadium in Nashville to face Marcus Mariota and the Titans later next Sunday afternoon in a matchup between two teams who also started the season 0-1. And can you believe it? The Cleveland Browns (1-15 SU, 4-12 ATS in 2016) are actually 3-point favorites in Indianapolis against the Colts with QB Andrew Luck out (Shoulder) in at least Week 2.
NFL Week 2 kicks off with the Bengals hosting the Texans, making the way for Rookie Deshaun Watson (Clemson) to step in.
