SportsLine’s computer model simulated every Week 3 NFL game 10,000 times with surprising results.
Week 3 of the 2020 NFL schedule will feature eight games with NFL spreads of four points or fewer. As a result, picking which NFL Vegas lines to target as you make your Week 3 NFL bets could be a challenge with so many major injuries changing the dynamic. The Panthers will have to figure out how to move the football without star running back Christian McCaffrey, who suffered a high-ankle sprain. Carolina is a 6.5-point underdog against the Chargers in the Week 3 NFL odds from William Hill.
The 49ers were decimated by injuries in Week 2, but the defending NFC champions are still 3.5-point favorites on the road against the Giants in the Week 3 NFL Vegas spreads. The Giants won’t have Saquon Barkley, but San Francisco lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas on defense, which could dramatically change the complexion of that game. All of the Week 3 NFL lines are listed below, and SportsLine’s advanced computer model has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Week 3 NFL picks now.
