Week 3 of the NFL is upon us and we can only hope it lives up to the hype of week 2. There are a number of stat and data-based tools to helps us untangle every match-up; who to choose and who to avoid. Last week his picks went 2-1; our go-to guy to get those picks is RJ Bell (@RJinVegas).
Big Favorite: Miami Dolphins -9.5 over Cleveland Browns
Instead of calling it our typical “Big Dog” pick we’re calling it the “Big Favorite” this week. 2 weeks ago Cody Kessler was the 3rd string QB. This week hes starting with very few reps in preseason under his belt. Their top 2 receivers are also out with injuries so it’s not looking good as of right now. He’s calling the Dolphins a motivated bunch so RJ is picking them over the Browns.
Best Bet: Cincinnati Bengals -3 over Denver Broncos
This week RJ is picking AGAINST the Superbowl champs! Cincinnati is trying to avoid losing a second game in a row while Denver is picking up right where they left off last season with a 2-0 record. BUT, he’s calling the Bengals “sneaky good” at home so he’s going with them to get the W.
Big Game (Monday Night Football): New Orleans Saints -3 over Atlanta Falcons
RJ fell short last week with his MNF pick but he’s going with it again. This is the 10 year anniversary of the Super Dome opening back up after Hurricane Katrina so it’ll be a very emotional game for the home team Saints. The Falcons are 1-1 this year but finished last season winning only 2 of 9 games so they haven’t been on a good roll. Because the emotion behind this game he’s picking the Saints to get the win.
