NFL Week 3 Opening Line Report
With Week 2 in the NFL wrapping up tonight, here's an early look at the biggest spreads, highest totals and more.
What is the biggest spread for Week 3 in the NFL?
Not every matchup has a point spread yet but according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the 49ers-Seahawks game has the biggest point spread for Week 3. Following their shocking loss to the lowly Rams on Sunday, the Seahawks opened as 10-point home favorites versus the 49ers in Week 3. That spread has already been bet down to Seattle -9.5, but it remains the largest spread on the board.
What is the smallest spread for Week 3 in the NFL?
That would be the Ravens-Jaguars matchup in Jacksonville, which is currently a pick'em. Baltimore erased a 20-2 deficit in Cleveland to beat the Browns on the road last Sunday while the Jaguars were crushed 38-14 by the Chargers in San Diego as a 3-point underdog. The Jags have failed to cover in back-to-back games to open the season and are 0-2 on the year, while the Ravens are 2-0 straight up and against the spread.
What is the largest total on the board for Week 3 in the NFL?
The Monday Night Football matchup in New Orleans has the largest over/under for Week 3. The total for the Falcons-Saints clash at the Superdome is sitting at 53.5 points right now, edging out Chargers-Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon, which is 51.5 points. The Falcons have gone over in both of their games to start the year while the Saints shockingly fell under when they played the Giants in Week 2.
What is the smallest total on the board for Week 3 in the NFL?
Let's go back to the 49ers-Seahawks NFC West clash in Seattle, where the over/under is listed at 40.5, which is the smallest total for Week 3. After scoring 12 and 3 points respectively in their first two games of the season, the Seahawks have played under the total in back-to-back games to kick off 2016. The Niners fell under in their 28-0 shutout over the Rams in Week 1 but the total flew over in their 46-27 loss to the Panthers in Week 2.
Which game has already seen the most line movement for Week 3?
The Dolphins opened as a 7-point favorite versus the Browns but are now -7.5 for their home opener on Sunday, while the Giants have gone from -4 to -4.5 against the Redskins as a home favorite on Sunday. The biggest movement thus far, however, is the Raiders-Titans matchup going from a pick'em up to Tennessee -2. Clearly some believe the Titans' come-from-behind victory in Detroit on Sunday was no fluke.
