NFL-Week 3-Sunday football- Game previews

Steelers (-7 ½, 44) at Bears – 1:00 PM EST

Pittsburgh
Record: 2-0 SU, 1-1 ATS, 2-0 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 8/1

The Steelers crushed the Sam Bradford-less Vikings last Sunday, 26-9 to easily cash as 8 ½-point home favorites. Ben Roethlisberger threw multiple touchdown passes for the second straight game, while Antonio Brown has racked up the most receiving yards in the league through two games (244). After starting last season at 1-3 SU/ATS as a road favorite, the Steelers have pulled off five straight victories in this role, while compiling a 4-1 ATS mark with the lone non-cover coming in the Week 1 win at Cleveland.

Chicago
Record: 0-2 SU, 1-1 ATS, 2-0 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 250/1

The Bears hung with the Falcons until the final seconds in a Week 1 setback, but Chicago was blown out in Mike Glennon’s return to Tampa Bay in a 29-7 drubbing last Sunday. Glennon threw for 301 yards against his former squad, but it didn’t mean much after the Bears fell behind, 26-0 at halftime to suffer their ninth straight road loss since the start of 2016. However, Chicago has fared well at Soldier Field in the underdog role since the beginning of last season by covering in four of its last five opportunities.

Best Bet: Steelers -7 ½

Broncos (-3, 40 ½) at Bills – 1:00 PM EST

Denver
Record: 2-0 SU, 1-0-1 ATS, 2-0 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 16/1

The AFC West has gotten off to a solid start with the Broncos, Raiders, and Chiefs all jumping out to undefeated records through two weeks. Denver followed up a three-point victory over Los Angeles by blowing out Denver, 42-17 as 2 ½-point home underdogs to improve to 2-0 for the fifth straight season. Quarterback Trevor Siemian threw four touchdown passes, while the Denver defense limited Dallas to 40 yards rushing on 14 carries. Denver makes its first trip to Buffalo since 2011 when the Broncos were routed by the Bills, 40-14.

Buffalo
Record: 1-1 SU, 2-0 ATS, 2-0 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 125/1

The Bills’ offense produced only a field goal in last week’s 9-3 defeat at Carolina, but Buffalo held the Panthers out of the end zone while covering as 6 ½-point underdogs. Buffalo has yielded only 21 points in two games, but the Bills need to get their vaunted running game going after LeSean McCoy posted nine yards on 12 carries at Carolina. The Bills have been a profitable home underdog over the years by putting together a 7-4 ATS mark in this situation since 2013.

Best Bet: Bills +3

Falcons (-3, 50 ½) at Lions – 1:00 PM EST

Atlanta
Record: 2-0 SU, 1-1 ATS, 1-1 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 12/1

The Falcons beat up the Packers to win the NFC championship in January as Atlanta orchestrated an encore effort last Sunday night at Mercedes Benz Stadium, 34-23 to cash as three-point favorites. Green Bay made it interesting late as it couldn’t overcome a 31-7 third quarter deficit as running back Devonta Freeman found the end zone twice for the Falcons. Atlanta has covered in seven of its past 10 opportunities on the road, while winning each of its past four as an away favorite since 2016.

Detroit
Record: 2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS, 1-1 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 33/1

The Lions are all alone atop the NFC North, albeit only two weeks in at 2-0. Detroit has picked up a pair of wins in the underdog role against the Cardinals and Giants after closing out 2016 with an 0-4 SU/ATS mark when receiving points. All eight home contests for the Lions in 2016 were decided by seven points or less, but their opening victory at Ford Field came by 12 points over Arizona. The road team has won each of the last three meetings between these teams since 2011, as the Lions squeezed past the Falcons in the previous matchup at the Georgia Dome, 22-21 in 2014.

Best Bet: Falcons -3

Seahawks at Titans (-2 ½, 42 ½) – 4:05 PM EST

Seattle
Record: 1-1 SU, 0-2 ATS, 2-0 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 10/1

The Seahawks have lost two of their first three games only once since 2012 as Seattle hopes to avoid a 1-2 start. Last week’s victory over the 49ers wasn’t very convincing, but Seattle managed a 12-9 triumph with a late touchdown as San Francisco easily cashed as 13 ½-point underdogs. Seattle’s ferocious defense has yielded only 26 points through two weeks, marking the fourth time in the last six seasons that Pete Carroll’s squad has allowed fewer than 28 points in the first two games. The Seahawks have had their struggles on the highway since 2016 by going 3-7 ATS, while losing four of the past five straight-up.

Tennessee
Record: 1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS, 2-0 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 28/1

The Titans broke through the win column in Week 2 with a second half surge in a 37-16 rout of the Jaguars. Tennessee outscored Jacksonville after halftime, 31-13, while the Titans’ ground attack compiled 179 yards, highlighted by Derrick Henry’s 92 yards and touchdown run. In spite of dropping the season opener to Oakland, the Titans own a 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS record in their past seven contests at Nissan Stadium. However, Tennessee has struggled at home against NFC opponents since 2013 by winning only once in the last eight opportunities with that lone victory coming against Green Bay last season.

Best Bet: Titans -2 ½

Chiefs (-3, 47 ½) at Chargers – 4:25 PM EST

Kansas City
Record: 2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS, 2-0 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 16/1

The Chiefs have owned the Chargers over the years by winning each of the last six meetings since 2014. Kansas City rallied in overtime to shock the Lightning Bolts in last season’s opener, while outlasting the Chargers in San Diego, 37-27 in the season finale. The Chiefs own a 7-2 ATS record in its past nine road games, including a shocking Week 1 performance against the Patriots. Andy Reid’s team held off the Eagles last Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, 27-20, led by rookie Kareem Hunt’s two rushing touchdowns, as the former Toledo standout has racked up 355 yards from scrimmage in two games.

Los Angeles
Record: 0-2 SU, 0-1-1 ATS, 1-1 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 100/1

Another game, another close loss for the Chargers. It doesn’t matter where it is, the move from San Diego to Los Angeles hasn’t changed the late-game results for the Lightning Bolts. After the Chargers lost the opener by three points to the Broncos, L.A. missed the go-ahead field goal in the final seconds in last Sunday’s 19-17 setback to the Dolphins to fall to 0-2 for the first time since 2008. The Chargers haven’t been a good underdog to back at home in the last few seasons by posting a 3-8 ATS mark in this role since 2013, while dropping three straight home meetings with the Chiefs.

Best Bet: Chiefs -3

Bengals at Packers (-9, 44 ½) – 4:25 PM EST

Cincinnati
Record: 0-2 SU, 0-2 ATS, 2-0 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 100/1

From an offensive standpoint, the Bengals have been the most offensive when they have the ball. Translation, Cincinnati can’t find the end zone, as the Bengals have scored a grand total of nine points in two home losses to Baltimore and Houston. The Bengals haven’t been terrible defensively, getting burned by a long touchdown in each of their defeats, while yielding three touchdowns in two weeks. Two seasons ago, the Bengals put together an incredible 8-0 ATS record away from Paul Brown Stadium, but Cincinnati went backwards in 2016 by going 2-6-1 ATS in nine highway contests.

Green Bay
Record: 1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS, 1-1 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 10/1

The Packers have endured the most difficult schedule in the league by facing the Seahawks and Falcons in the first two weeks. Green Bay came away with a split as the Packers look to extend their home winning streak to six with a victory on Sunday. The Packers have won five of their last six games at Lambeau Field against AFC foes, but the only loss came last season to the Colts. Green Bay hasn’t had much luck with Cincinnati over the years by losing three straight meetings, including a 34-30 setback at Paul Brown Stadium in 2013.

Best Bet: Bengals +9
