2020 NFL Week 3 Predictions



Tredavious White is phenomenal in coverage when healthy. He faces one of the best receiver cores with the Los Angeles Rams heading to Buffalo.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: September 22, 2020.



Miami Dolphins 0-2-0
Versus
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I now have sole possession of first place after a 15-1 week 2. I am 26-6 on the year. Oren Shiri went 14-2 in week 2 after tying me for an 11-5 record in week 1. Oren is in sole possession of second place through two weeks with a 25-7 record on the year. Jesse Lucas is in third place at 22-10 going 12-4 in week 2 after a 10-6 week 1. Tanya Holmes and Jason Bantle are tied for last place at 21-11. Jason went 13-3 in week 2 after an 8-8 week 1 and Tanya went 12-4 in week 2 after a 9-7 week 1. This was the first time in Draft Utopia history where all five panelists went 12-4 or better on all 16 games so if you bet our predictions last week, you made some serious money.



Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami's cornerback trio of Xavien Howard, Byron Jones, and Noah Igbinoghene matches up well with Jacksonville's wide receiver duo of Laviska Shenault Jr., and Dede Westbrook thanks to D.J. Chark being ruled inactive for this game. Ryan Fitzpatrick must also win the turnover battle against Gardner Minshew II if Miami wants to pull off the upset.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Gardner Minshew II dominated in Jacksonvile's home opener. This offensive line with Cam Robinson at left tackle, Andrew Norwell at left guard, Brandon Linder at center, A.J. Cann at right guard, and Jawaan Taylor at right tackle. Jacksonville's strong offensive line play along with their linebacker play featuring Myles Jack at 4-3 right outside linebacker, Joe Schobert at 4-3 middle linebacker, and K'Lavon Chaisson at 4-3 left outside linebacker is why I'm picking Jacksonville to win now.


Prediction: Jacksonville enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $130 dollars with the average gambler betting around $120 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49. Right now 57% of the betting action is on Jacksonville at -3. Take Jacksonville to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Jaguars 21 Dolphins 17

Houston Texans 0-2-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 2-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 223,000 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized.




Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston has Deshaun Watson at quarterback. Watson has Laremy Tunsil at left tackle, Max Scharping at left guard, Nick Martin at center, Zach Fulton at right guard, and Tytus Howard at right tackle. Watson has Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Will Fuller, and Kenny Stills as targets to throw to. J.J. Watt wants to outplay his little brother T.J. Watt.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Houston was supposed to have a good offensive line on paper. Houston's offensive line struggled against both Kansas City and Baltimore. The pass rushing tandem of T.J. Watt at 3-4 right outside linebacker and Bud Dupree at 3-4 left outside linebacker gives Pittsburgh a great chance at winning. They also got Cameron Heyward at 3-4 right end and Stephon Tuitt at 3-4 left end to go up against their guards. Ben Roethlisberger should be able to play turnover free football against this secondary.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 4 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Pittsburgh at -4. I like Pittsburgh to win and Houston to cover with the over.

Cincinnati Bengals 0-2-0
Versus
Philadelphia Eagles 0-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2020 NHL Draft, 2021 NFL Draft, and 2021 MLS Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute. So far there are 11 full games on Bitchute for both football and soccer in 2020 compared to the 6 football games we had at this point in 2019.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Joe Burrow is gonna have weapons to pick apart Philadelphia's secondary. Wide receivers like A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, and John Ross should step up in this game since Philadelphia cut both Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas before the start of the regular season.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Carson Wentz will have his best pass protection of the season in this game. Left tackle Jason Peters and right tackle Lane Johnson will give Wentz enough time to make the right decisions. Wentz will need that since Cincinnati has a formidable secondary that features William Jackson III and Darius Philips at cornerback along with Shaun Williams and Jessie Bates III complimenting each other at safety.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is 225 dollars, the maximum bet is $275 dollars with the average gambler betting around $250 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46.5. Right now 56% of the betting action is on Cincinnati at +4.5. Take Philadelphia to win and cover with the over.

San Francisco 49ers 1-1-0
Versus
New York Giants 0-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted a film cut of Clemson running back Travis Etienne. Etienne did okay versus Wake Forest.




Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: The San Francisco 49ers have up to 20 injured players that may be out this week. They do not have to deal with Saquon Barkley despite having all these injuries.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Daniel Jones just may do enough to win this game. Even without Saquon Barkley at running back, he may do just enough to win this game. Left tackle Andrew Thomas and right tackle Cameron Flemming may finally hold their own this week since all four of the 49ers defensive ends are injured.


Prediction: San Francisco enters as a 4 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41.5. Right now 58% of the betting action is on San Francisco at -4. I like New York to win and to cover with the under.

Las Vegas Raiders 2-0-0
Versus
New England Patriots 1-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets heading into week 3.



You're giving Rob Gronkowski more attention then your rookie tight end Devin Asiasi. I didn't know you missed Gronkie that much.




Hahaha. I wish I could type laughing emojis in code.




Isaiah Wynn hasn't given up a sack at left tackle through two games. It's scary to think what New England can do with Wynn and Marcus Cannon at right tackle next season if Wynn keeps balling out. Joe Thuney at left guard, David Andrews at center, and Shaq Mason at right guard make an amazing interior offensive line.




You misspelled Jamal Adams. Jamal Adams you got mossed!




Russell Wilson and Seattle are 2-0. I don't think this comment is necessary unless you win.



Why the Las Vegas Raiders Will Win: The Las Vegas Raiders have a shot to win simply due to the offensive line. Trent Brown got injured at right tackle, and this offensive line still stepped up even without Brown or Ritchie Incognito. Derek Carr will have Kolton Miller at left tackle, John Simpson at left guard, Rodney Hudson at center, Gabe Jackson at right guard, and Denzelle Good at right tackle with every other offensive tackle on this roster injured with Good moving over from backup right guard to right tackle. New Orleans has a stronger defensive line than New England so the fact that these guys did well against the Saints has to give you confidence heading into New England.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Head coach Bill Belichick will have the Patriots ready to play after a close loss to Seattle. The defense should do well enough for New England to win. Cam Newton has weapons like Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry that can pick apart these cornerbacks at wide receiver.


Prediction: New England enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $230 dollars, the maximum bet is $290 dollars with the average gambler betting around $260 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 63% of the betting action is on Las Vegas at +6. Take New England to win and cover with the over.

Tennessee Titans 2-0-0

Minnesota Vikings 0-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: A.J. Brown's status for this week is still up in the air. That's one reason why my status for the Titans is up in the air. Anthony Barr is on injured reserved and out for the year so now Derrick Henry just has to run to the outside and avoid middle linebacker Eric Kendricks. Tennessee has Malcolm Butler, Adoree Jackson, Jonathan Joseph, and Kristian Fulton to blanket Kirk Cousins's wide receivers. Their safety tandem of Kenny Vacarro and Kevin Byard should be lethal enough to stop the two tight end set of Irv Smith Jr. and Kyle Rudolph. Jadeveon Clowney and Harold Landry should limit Cousins's time in the pocket.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota's offense goes off this week. Dalvin Cook needs to win the rushing yards battle against Derrick Henry. Kirk Cousins can outthrow Ryan Tannehill, but something tells me the ground game will be key for both teams.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5. Right now 57% of the betting action is on Tennessee at -2.5. Take Tennessee to win and to cover with the over.

Washington Football Team 1-1-0
Versus
Cleveland Browns 1-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia now has an E-Commerce Store on Teespring. Click on the word Teespring to be redirected to our shop to buy Draft Utopia merchandise.


Why the Washington Football Team Will Win: Washington has a lethal pass rush with guys like Chase Young, Montez Sweat, Ryan Kerrigan, Da'Ron Payne, Jonathan Allen, and Matt Iodannis. Cleveland's offensive line will get picked apart unless Jack Conklin is starting at right tackle next to Jedrick Wills Jr.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Washington is weak at linebacker and cornerback. Perhaps weaker at linebacker and cornerback than the Cincinnati Bengals. Baker Mayfield has Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt at running back. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry should torch these cornerbacks. Myles Garrett should bully Geron Christian at will. Dwayne Haskins has had to carry Washington all season with abysmal left tackle play.


Prediction: Cleveland enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $270 dollars, the maximum bet is $330 dollars with the average gambler betting around $300 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45. Right now 54% of the betting action is on Cleveland at -7. Take Cleveland to win and cover with the under.

Los Angeles Rams 2-0-0
Versus
Buffalo Bills 2-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Rams VS Browns game. Here is an archive of their other episodes.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: I liked Jared Goff coming out of college more than Josh Allen. If Goff can win the turnover battle against Josh Allen, whose gotten off to a red hot start, then the Rams can certainly control the tempo of this football game. Wide receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and Josh Reynolds will have their hands full against these Bills cornerbacks. Jalen Ramsey can blanket Stefon Diggs.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Tre'Davious White will lock down Robert Woods. Josh Allen has been red hot to begin the year. Outside of Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald, and Michael Brockers, there isn't a single player on this Rams defense that can stop what Josh Allen does. Josh Allen has gotten off to a hot start in the NFL, and I expect Allen to continue to play at a high level heading into week 3.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 63% of the betting action is on Los Angeles at +2.5. Take Buffalo to win and cover with the over.

Chicago Bears 2-0-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 0-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted my first 2021 NFL Mock Draft and this one is two rounds. I may try to update this weekly during the NFL season. I also did a six round 2020 NHL Mock Draft. I'll add round 7 at the conclusion of the 2020 Stanley Cup Finals.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago has a great defense with Khalil Mack at 3-4 right outside linebacker and Robert Quinn at 3-4 left outside linebacker. Roquan Smith and Danny Trevathian are starting at 3-4 middle linebacker. This secondary has Kyle Fuller and Jaylon Johnson at cornerback with Eddie Jackson and Tashaun Gipson complimenting these cornerbacks at safety. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman is lethal too. This defense will do enough to make this a one score game regardless of how good or woeful Mitchell Trubisky's decision making ends up being.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are reliable targets for Matt Ryan to throw to. If Atlanta has their usuals on the offensive line with Jake Matthews at left tackle, James Carpenter at left guard, Alex Mack at center, Chris Lindstrom at right guard, and Kaleb McGary at right tackle, then Atlanta should do enough offensively to prevail in this contest.


Prediction: Atlanta enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $200 dollars with the average gambler betting around $180 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Atlanta at -3. Take Atlanta to win and cover with the under.

Carolina Panthers 0-2-0
Versus
Los Angeles Chargers 1-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


As far as draft games go, my focus will be on the NHL right now with the 2020 NHL Draft on tuesday October 6, 2020, then I'll transition to the 2020 NBA Draft set to take place on wednesday November 18, 2020. After that I'll begin work on the 2021 NFL Draft Game. Last night I got photos for the top 10 picks in the 2020 NHL Draft, and cropped them, so I can begin working on the 2020 NHL Draft Game as early as this friday.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Teddy Bridgewater has to win the turnover battle against Justin Herbert. With Christian McCaffrey out, Los Angeles will be glued in on Bridgewater. Russell Okung has to protect Bridgewater's blindside in this game against his former team if the Carolina Panthers hope to pull the upset.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Justin Herbert did superb in his debut when you consider that the Chargers do not have two good offensive tackles for Justin Herbert. These teams made the Russell Okung and Trai Turner trade which sent Turner to the Chargers and Okung to Carolina.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $220 dollars, the maximum bet is $280 dollars with the average gambler betting around $250 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5. Right now 59% of the betting action is on Los Angeles at -6.5. I like Los Angeles to win and Carolina to cover with the over.

New York Jets 0-2-0
Versus
Indianapolis Colts 1-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold's offensive line looked lost in week 2. Even with the injuries at defensive end that San Francisco suffered, Darnold could not get anything going. He faces an Indianapolis Colts team coming off of their first victory of the season.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Philip Rivers will lead the Colts to victory thanks to his offensive line. With Anthony Costanzo at left tackle, Quinton Nelson at left guard, Ryan Kelly at center, Mark Glowinski at right guard, and Braden Smith at righ tackle, Rivers will have all day to throw it. Jonathan Taylor will compliment Rivers at running back.


Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 11.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $380 dollars, the maximum bet is $480 dollars with the average gambler betting around $430 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44. Right now 58% of the betting action is on Indianapolis at -11.5. Take the Colts to win and cover with the under.

Dallas Cowboys 1-1-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 2-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick



The Dallas Cowboys finally parted ways with fictional GM Bill Lumberg who went 1-2 in his career as GM in the playoffs. Hank Hill from King of the Hill and assistant GM and Director Of College Scouting Dale Gribble are 1-1 since taking over for Lumberg.




Here is this weeks hot take from Hank Hill.

Hey you see that little midget Russell Wilson, Everson and DeMarcus. That little man is front runner to win MVP. I want you to get by his blockers and kick his ass. Don't sack Russell Wilson's ass. Kick it!


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dak Prescott rallied Dallas back in that narrow win over the Atlanta Falcons. They face a much tougher Seattle team that's had the Cowboys number in the past. The pass rushing tandem of Everson Griffen and DeMarcus Lawrence must step up and bring Russell Wilson to the ground if Dallas wants to pull the upset with two of their five cornerbacks injured.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Russell Wilson is playing like an early season candidate to win MVP right now. I don't think that momentum stops after Russell Wilson had a second strong week in a row.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $180 dollars, the maximum bet is $220 dollars with the average gambler betting around $200 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 56. Right now 54% of the betting action is on Seattle at -5. Take Seattle to win and cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson has been to two championships with Trevor Lawrence. Hillary is crazy about is hair Yahoo man. Dabo Sweeney has surpassed Nick Saban as the biggest pimp in College Football.





  2. Ohio State

    With the Big 10 officially ending their strike. Ohio State is number two in the polls and no longer Kevin Warren's bitch as the Big 10 commissioner finally came to his senses.





  3. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson for what happened two years ago. Nick Saban is the second biggest pimp in College Football.





  4. Oklahoma

    Lincoln Riley has coached two Heisman winning quarterbacks and had Jalen Hurts. He now has the rattlesnake known as Spencer Rattler.






Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay is facing a Denver team that does not have Drew Lock or right tackle Ju'Wuan James. They also do not have to worry about Von Miller.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: The altitude is the only advantage Denver has. Look for Tampa Bay to win big.


Prediction: Tampa Bay enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $140 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $160 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Tampa Bay at -6. Take Tampa Bay to win and to cover with the under.

All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



    All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



    1. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 2-0

      H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 204.24 points putting up a clinic against the Avengers. Not even the Justice League could help Avengers deal with this team. Heath used a keeper on Alvin Kamara his signature player from last season before drafting DaVante Adams in the second round who had a mind boggling 41.6 fantasy points. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes defeated Brees Nutz in week 2 to improve to 2-0. Heath was the top seed in the playoffs last year before losing to Jason in the playoff semifinal. Heath will get his highly anticipated rematch with Jason Bantle in week 3, in a game that will decide who has the 1 seed heading into week 4. I started 6-0 last year and ended up with the 3 seed.





    2. The Chosen Ones 2-0

      Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV two years ago and lost to Mitch. He made it to Bantle Bowl V and beat Mitch. He plays me this weekend and this game feels like a toss up because he hasn't set his lineup, but was favored to win after the draft because he has Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce, the best running back, receiver, and tight end on the Super Bowl 54 Champion Kansas City Chiefs. Jason took care of business and should still have a top 3 team win or lose against H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes. Same could be said with Heath Berman's team.



    3. Previous Rank 3rd




    4. Car RamRod 2-0

      Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 2-0. Kerm is doing better than the Dallas Cowboys and Alabama Crimson Tide which are his two favorite sports teams. Kerm is favored to win in week 3 against Millenial Menace. Kerm will move into the top 2 with a win.



    5. Previous Rank 4th




    6. Kerryon My Wayward Son 2-0

      Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle two years ago. This team started 1-0 last year too and was third behind H.B. Vinegar's Strokes and myself a year ago. This time they had 194.76 points thanks to having Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in a two quarterback league. Wilson and Rodgers were the top fantasy performers at quarterback in week 1. They beat Millenial Menace in week 2. They are projected to lose to my team Gangster Squad in week 3, so there is still one seed that's still up for grabs outside of the top 3, despite Riley's impressive 2-0 start.



    7. Previous Rank 2nd




    8. Team Mouserat 1-1

      Mark got the 4 seed two years ago. Mark has the five seed after his win, but plays an 0-2 Brees Nutz team that is projected to beat Mark in week 3 now that Saquon Barkley is out for the year.



    9. Previous Rank 8th




    10. Millenial Menace 1-1

      Barenaked Ladies needs to sue the owner of Millenial Menace for copyright infrindgement. Still this logo is less offensive than the Washington Redskins logo. George Pabst deserves some credit. He's only a rookie in this league and he's already doing better than his brother Mitch who won this league three years in a row as Mitch is off to an 0-2 start. Millenial Menace is ranked fourth ahead of Car RamRod in our Yahoo league, but I'm moving Kerm ahead of him because Kerm's team clobbered my team and second I don't like that he's using copyright infrindgement on one of the best bands from the 90's with Barenaked Nadies who had hit songs like One Week and It's All Been Done from their Stunt album in 1998.



    11. Previous Rank 5th




    12. Gangster Squad 0-2

      I am 0-2 after losing to Jason Bantle. My team was projected to go 6-1 before losing down the stretch and finishing 8-6. I think we can win five in a row and Gangster Squad gets a Brees Nutz team with Lamar Jackson on a bye week in week 8, so this team could easily be 6-2 in six weeks if this team comes together and turns things around. I'd say we're the best 0-2 team.



    13. Previous Rank 6th




    14. Brees Nutz 0-2

      Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to three peat as Bantle Bowl Champion winning Bantle Bowl III, IV, and V. This 0-2 team is projected to win in week 3.



    15. Previous Rank 7th



    16. Avengers 0-2

      Avengers made Bantle Bowl III. They also draft well in 2020 which is why I'm putting them at 9. Right now, Heath and Jason have the top 2 seeds secured which is something I didn't expect to be honest. Their teams should win again. Andrew, Riley, George, Mitch, Mark, Gary, and myself have all put together competitive teams this year and I expect the six of us to have some epic battles which will decide who gets those final two seeds. Nobody has clinched anything yet and it's still very early in the season.





    17. Taco Corp 0-2

      Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. Taco Corp had another bad draft, and I think their season is over. They are ninth on Yahoo ahead of Avengers so you can't call them the leagues bottom feeder just yet.






    Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Detroit is expected to have Kenny Golladay back this week. That's one thing that works in Detroit's favor. T.J. Hockenson did well against Arizona in his NFL debut as a rookie, and needs another strong game in his second season if the Lions want to pull the upset.


    Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Arizona looks lightyears better than the team that tied Detroit in Kyler Murray's first career start. Unless Detroit has a healthy Desmond Trufant, Jeffrey Okudah, and Justin Coleman, then Arizona should do just enough offensively to defeat Detroit. The wide receiver trio of DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk may be too much. Arizona has Patrick Peterson, Byron Murphy, and Dre Kirkpatrick in the nickel ready to face Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola.


    Prediction: Arizona enters as a 5.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $225 dollars, the maximum bet is $275 dollars with the average gambler betting around $250 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 55. Right now 64% of the betting action is on Arizona at -5.5. I like Arizona to to win and Detroit to cover with the over.

    Green Bay Packers 2-0-0
    Versus
    New Orleans Saints 1-1-0


    Chris Ransom's Pick


    Check out Joseph Potter's website Draft Evolution. The co-host of my podcast will set up an Anchor account so we can network together in the coming weeks.


    Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Aaron Rodgers has been red hot in the first two weeks. Last week when Jared Goff showed up on my I-pad, I changed my pick from Eagles to Rams. Aaron Rodgers showed up on my I-pad so that means Green Bay may improve to 3-0. They need to have another statement win if they want to assert themselves as the team to beat in the NFC.


    Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans was my preseason pick to win the NFC. They have the most complete team in the NFC. I picked the Saints to win this game in my Saints season preview. This game could honestly go either way.


    Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 52.5. Right now 66% of the betting action is on Green Bay at +3. I like Green Bay to win and to cover with the under.


    Final Score Packers 21 Saints 20

    Kansas City Chiefs 2-0-0
    Versus
    Baltimore Ravens 2-0-0


    Chris Ransom's Pick


    I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in Baltimore.


    Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and Rich Walsh covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from Baltimore. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

    Madden: Welcome to Baltimore. Home of the Steelers arch rival. At least we don't have to deal with Ray Lewis tonight.

    Filiponi: It's a new era in Baltimore. Patrick Mahomes VS Lamar Jackson.

    Walsh: League MVP VS Super Bowl MVP. Should be a classic. Mahomes will be 10-0 in September in his career unless Lamar Jackson plays spoiler. I like Mahomes tonight. It's going to be a classic Bob.

    Pompieni: Indeed Rich Walsh. This may be a preview of the 2020 AFC Championship game.

    Madden: These are the only two teams that can keep the Steelers from getting to Tampa Bay. I will take the Chiefs.

    Filiponi: I'm taking the Ravens. Bob Pompieni also picked the Ravens even though he's trying to be neutral and professional.

    Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by Madden 21. We know it sucks, but Lamar Jackson is on the cover.

    Madden: Madden 21 is so bad that NBC pulled it as a sponsor after the Opening game between Houston and Kansas City.

    Filiponi: The Madden 20 VS Madden 21 coverboys clash. Mahomes beat Lamar in week 3 a year ago when both teams were 2-0 heading into Kansas City.

    Pompieni: Alright let's get set for kickoff. We'll be back with kickoff after our fans complain about the new shitty features that EA Sports added to Madden 21.



    Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Patrick Mahomes has Eric Fisher at left tackle and Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle. He has Travis Kelce at tight end. Four different wide receivers including Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, and MeCole Hardman. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is starting at running back. Baltimore no longer has Tavon Young, so Kansas City should do enough offensively to win.


    Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Lamar Jackson has Ronnie Stanley at left tackle and Orlando Brown Jr. at right tackle. Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins will take pressure off of Jackson. Marques Brown, Miles Boykin, Willie Snead, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche are the wide receivers. Baltimore has Mark Andrews at tight end. Baltimore's offense can go toe-to-toe with Kansas City.


    Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $180 dollars, the maximum bet is $220 dollars with the average gambler betting around $200 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54. Right now 53% of the betting action is on Kansas City at +3.5. I like Kansas City to win and to cover with the over.


    Final Score Chiefs 35 Ravens 34
