Sunday, Early Games

Dolphins at Cowboys (-22.5)
ATS – 50% Cowboys

The Dolphins have been outscored 102-10 in their first two games, both at home, and now need to travel to the house of the hottest team in the NFC. Dak Prescott will do what Lamar Jackson and Tom Brady did to this defense, and Ezekiel Elliott will eat plenty, too. ~ Vinnie Iyer (Sporting News)

Bengals at Bills (-6)
ATS – 50% Bengals

Are the Bills (2-0) going to be 3-0? Probably. Buffalo should handle the Bengals (0-2), who still have a middling offense and arguably the league’s worst defense. Zac Taylor is a smart coach, but he’s in over his head this season. ~ Matt Verderame (FanSided)
View All Expert picks >>

Lions at Eagles (-6.5)
ATS – 68% Lions

The Eagles will be without a pair of starting defensive tackles (Malik Jackson, Tim Jernigan) and likely a pair of starting receivers (Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson). Not ideal against a running attack looking to get going and a secondary headlined by All-Pro Darius Slay. ~ Mike Cole (NESN)

Jets at Patriots (-22)
ATS – 62% Patriots

Luke Falk vs. Tom Brady. Are you serious? This one will be ugly. ~ Pete Prisco (CBS Sports)
View All Expert picks >>

Falcons at Colts (-1)
ATS – 51% Falcons

The Falcons have committed the fifth-most penalties, second-most turnovers and have the eighth-worst third-down offense through two weeks. Indy is just a better, more-disciplined team at the moment, especially being home, although the Darius Leonard injury is something to keep an eye on as Sunday approaches. ~ Mike Cole (NESN)

Raiders at Vikings (-9.5)
ATS – 71% Vikings

After a rough game in Green Bay, Kirk Cousins will bounce back in a situation where he shines: playing at home against a bad team. Cousins and the Vikings went 7-1-1 against teams that missed the playoffs last season. Four of Minnesota’s last five home wins have come by double digits. ~ Anthony Riccobono (IB Times)

Ravens at Chiefs (-5.5)
ATS – 61% Ravens

The best strategy on this matchup might be to pass and take a position through in-game or halftime wagering. The Ravens and Chiefs have exclusively played the dregs of the league so far this year, which makes it hard to determine how they will look against each other. ~ Case Keefer (Las Vegas Sun)
View All Expert picks >>

Broncos at Packers (-7.5)
ATS – 63% Broncos

Trap game? The Packers are coming off back-to-back hard-fought divisional games and have a Thursday night affair with the Philadelphia Eagles looming in Week 4. The Broncos, meanwhile, are a desperate team following an 0-2 start, and their defense is good enough to keep things close. ~ Ricky Dolye (NESN)

Sunday, Late Games

Panthers at Cardinals (-2.5)
ATS – 76% Cardinals

The Cardinals are a feisty bunch, hanging with the Ravens in Baltimore last week and battling back from that 18-point deficit in the opener. The same cannot be said for the Panthers, who got stopped on fourth-and-1 at the Tampa Bay 2 with 82 seconds left. ~ Gerry Dulac (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
View All Expert picks >>

Giants at Buccaneers (-6.5)
ATS – 54% Giants

It’s a slog having to back bad teams, but this line has moved so much that there’s not much of a choice. Tampa Bay was only a 3.5-point favorite on the lookahead line last week and neither its win over Carolina nor New York’s switch from Eli Manning to Daniel Jones at quarterback is worth an extra field goal. ~ Case Keefer (Las Vegas Sun)
View All Expert picks >>

Saints at Seahawks (-4)
ATS – 79% Seahawks

The Saints stayed on the West Coast after losing to the Rams, but that won’t matter. Without Brees, Seattle will breeze. ~ Pete Prisco (CBS Sports)
View All Expert picks >>

Texans at Chargers (-3)
ATS – 53% Texans

A very intriguing contest. Either the Texans (1-1) or Chargers (1-1) will have two losses and real questions to answer. Los Angeles can’t afford to fall too far off the pace in the AFC West, so this becomes a critical game for Philip Rivers and Co. Might come down to the last possession. ~ Matt Verderame (FanSided)
View All Expert picks >>

Steelers at 49ers (-6.5)
ATS – 58% Steelers

Don’t give up on the Steelers just yet. Maybe they won’t be going to the playoffs, but they aren’t close to being one of the league’s worst teams. Pittsburgh’s offense has actually performed it’s best with Mason Rudolph at quarterback in 2019. San Francisco hasn’t proven enough against good competition just yet to bet them as a touchdown favorite. ~ Anthony Riccobono (IB Times)

Sunday Night

Rams at Browns (+3)
ATS – 71% Rams

The Rams have a big coaching edge with Sean McVay over Freddie Kitchens. They will do it with a heavy dose of Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown offensively and Aaron Donald getting in Baker Mayfield’s face defensively. The Rams will be more efficient and balanced, and Wade Phillips will find a way to contain Odell Beckham Jr. with Aqib Talib and safety help. ~ Vinnie Iyer (Sporting News)
View All Expert picks >>

Monday Night

Bears at Redskins (+4)
ATS – 55% Bears

The Jets already lost to one bad team at home, blowing a lead against the Bills. They might as well make it two bad teams in a row against the Browns, who looked the part of a bad, sloppy, unprepared team in the opener. ~ Andre Khatchaturian (NESN)
