Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • Moneyline: Steelers (-160) vs. Bengals (+135)
  • Spread: Steelers -3
  • Total: 43 Points

A lot has happened leading up to this AFC North matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. On the Steelers side of things, they will be without their leading wide receiver in Diontae Johnson. Johnson suffered a knee injury in Week 2 towards the end of the game.

The line originally opened with the Steelers favored by 4.5 points and shifted down to 3 with the news, however, it should not be tough for them to cover and the Bengals will be without their top receiver in Tee Higgins.

Buccaneers Down Late In The Week

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Los Angeles Rams

  • Moneyline: Buccaneers (-125) vs. Rams (+105)
  • Spread: Buccaneers -1.5
  • Total: 55.5 Points

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without some major pieces on both sides of the ball in Week 3 in their powerhouse matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. Firstly, they will be missing wide receiver Antonio Brown to COVID-19. Brown is currently second on the team in receiving yards with 138 yards through two games. They will also be shorthanded on defense with their leading linebacker, Jason Pierre-Paul.

Even with their injuries, the line has remained the same with the Buccaneers sitting as 1.5-point favorites on the NFL odds board and if there is ever any advice that anyone should know when betting on this game, it is to never doubt QB Tom Brady.

Trouble In South Florida

Las Vegas Raiders Vs. Miami Dolphins

  • Moneyline: Raiders (-195) vs. Dolphins (+165)
  • Spread: Raiders -3.5
  • Total: 44 Points

The Miami Dolphins received some tough news in Week 2 that their second-year quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, suffered a rib injury and will be out for their Week 3 game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

This is tough news for a Dolphins team that was just starting to find its rhythm on offense with a strong receiving core.

Even before the news that Tua was not going to play, the Dolphins were 1-point underdogs. Following the report that Tua was out, the Raiders odds dropped down to a 4-point spread in their favor.
