NFL Preseason Predictions: Week 3

Favorites covered 10 of the 16 games. Totals went 8-8. Overall, favorites are now 17-16 ATS and overs are 20-13. It's interesting that the totals were raised so high, but still split the week. It's hard to draw conclusions from such a small sample, but the increase in preseason scoring seems to be here to stay.

In the regular season, roughly 15% of games are decided by 3 points. The next most frequent number is 7, which accounts for 9.5% of games. Through two weeks of the preseason not a single game has been decided by 3, and only two by 7.  The most frequent deciding number has been 4 (six games), followed by 5 (four games).
