Week Three NFL Odds

All's well that ends well.
All's well that ends well.

Short column this week for the odds. There's a lot of celebrating going on over on this end, and it's certainly not because of how well I did with the picks last week. Normally week two has some reversals of trends from week one, but I botched a couple against the spread. We're actually handicapped by the lines anyway, as both NFC East battles are off the board at the moment. What I'll do is take away three other games and on Saturday's Fantasy Football post, add the five games being withheld.

Those games will be:

New York Giants @ Philadelphia

Washington @ Dallas

New England @ Buffalo

Houston @ New Orleans

Kansas City @ San Diego

Picking all games against the spread is a chore. I always advise to stay away from double digit spread games, and I missed on both SEA/PIT and GB/CAR. I love to play lines right under -10 (KC/DET and JETS/JAC) I nailed all three for both of those games, S/U, ATS, TOTAL. There's only one of those this week, and that will be revealed in the Saturday Feature Five.

I'll continue picking all the games though, because I'm either a trooper or a glutton for punishment (depending on perspective), but with the roadblocks to picking a full slate anyway, we'll return to a Featured Five.

Follow the jump for the other 11 picks against the spread, straight up, and the total.
