NFL Predictions 2014: Week 3 Picks

Week 2 is done and it was much more of a mixed bag than Week 1. Dogs narrowly came out on top 8-7-1 ATS. Unders went 9-7 ... and it's interesting that unders are leading the way through two weeks of the season (18-14). It took a while for the books to truly adjust to all the scoring the last couple of years, but they've finally found their rhythm.

Week 2 is probably the trickiest week of the season since we don't know exactly how much of what we saw in Week 1 was real. Football Outsiders picks went 4-12 ATS this week! I can understand struggling early in the season, but that's shocking. The top 5 consensus picks at the LVH SuperContest fared much better by going 3-2 against the number.

The Bucs and Broncos were letdowns, and credit to the Eagles for taking advantage of poor officiating (don't get me started on the state of the NFL), but my only regret of the weekend was not fading the Raiders and the Jaguars - both are beyond terrible.

I already have a few early picks up for Week 3. Refresh for updates throughout the rest of the week.



Survivor Pick

The Packers and Broncos were the big survivor picks in Week 2 and both barely scraped by. The Saints weren't as lucky and were the main flop of the week.

Week 3: Colts

Week 2: Packers
