Atlanta Falcons walloped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 56-14 on Thursday night, marking one of the biggest covers in 2014 and kicking us off with the over in total betting. Which way will the remaining slate of games fall? Here’s a look at our over-under NFL picks for week 3.

Ravens at Browns O/U 41.0
Analysis: With both offenses capable of firing at all cylinders the 41.0 total does seem at tad low. Cleveland are averaging 26.5 points per game while the Ravens are averaging 21.0 points, a number they augmented last week. Perhaps, Baltimore defense is being given a lot of credit here. Both Cleveland games have gone over this season.
NFL Picks: Over 41.0


Cowboys at Rams O/U 44.0
Analysis: Cowboys (1-1) have a porous defense while the Rams are shaky at centre, starting Austin Davis. This could go either way really but we’re plunking down on the Under 44.0 for our NFL picks.
NFL Picks: Under


Packers at Lions O/U 52.0
Analysis: Green Bay Packers (1-1) have a potent offense, as Aaron Rodgers demonstrated last week in the Green Bay’s win over the Jets, which gives them an edge over the Lions on that side of the ball. The Lions (1-1SU) have a solid defense that could harass Rodgers no end, particularly on the road.
NFL Picks: Under 52.0


Texans at Giants O/U 41.0
Analysis: If Texans defense rises to the occasion this game and Eli Manning and the Giants continue to struggle with the west coast offense, this game should stay well and truly under the NFL odds.
NFL Picks: Under 41.0


Colts at Jaguars O/U 45.0
Analysis: Both Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts have had both games go over on the new season. However, while the Colts are averaging 25.5 points per game Jaguars are only managing 13 points per game. Jaguars defense is horrible, which should allow the Colts to score with abandon.
NFL Picks: Over 45.0


Vikings at Saints O/U 49.5
Analysis: New Orleans Saints are winless on the season, 0-2 ATS but 2-0 in over betting. Offense has accounted for 869 passing yards, 136 rushing yards and 64 points in two games. Saints are notoriously better at home than on the road, so expect their offense to be even more dynamic. Last season, the over-under split evenly 4-4 at home. Vikings had their butts whooped by Patriots last week, after accounting for just 7 points. Expect a better performance even if they are without Adrian Peterson as Matt Cassel and Company try to save some face.
NFL Picks:Over 49.5


Raiders at Patriots O/U 46.5
NFL Picks: Over 46.5


Chargers at Bills O/U 45.0
NFL Picks: Over 45.0


Titans at Bengals O/U 43.0
NFL Picks: Under 43.0


Redskins at Eagles O/U 50.0
NFL Picks:Over 50.0


49ers at Cardinals O/U 42.0
NFL Picks: Over 42


Broncos at Seahawks O/U 48.5
NFL Picks: Over 48.5


Chiefs at Dolphins O/U 42.5
NFL Picks: Under 42.5


Steelers at Panthers O/U 42.0
NFL Picks: Under 42.0


Bears at Jets O/U 45.5
NFL Picks:Over 45.5
