NFL Week 3 line movement analysis.
We’ll analyze all the opening line movements for the Week 3 NFL games.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns

Opening spread: Browns -3.5 / Current spread: Browns -3.5

Opening total: 40.5 points / Current total: 40.5 points

There has been no line movement yet in this matchup between AFC North rivals.

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers

Opening spread: Saints -2 / Current spread: Saints -3

Opening total: 42 points / Current total: 40.5 points

The Panthers are winless and we could see this point spread continue to trend in favor of the Saints.

Houston Texans vs. Chicago Bears

Opening spread: Bears -3 / Current spread: Bears -2.5

Opening total: 39 points / Current total: 38.5 points

We probably won’t see much movement on the line in this matchup featuring two of the NFL’s weakest teams.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts

Opening spread: Chiefs -2.5 / Current spread: Chiefs -6.5

Opening total: 52 points / Current total: 47 points

The Colts are struggling and early action has come for the Chiefs ATS and under.

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins

Opening spread: Bills -3.5 / Current spread: Bills -4.5

Opening total: 51.5 points / Current total: 51 points.

Depending on how the Bills look on MNF, we could see this spread get closer to a FG.

Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings

Opening Spread: Vikings -5 / Current Spread: Vikings -7

Opening total: 50.5 points / Current total: 53.5 points

If the Vikings win on MNF, this spread could jump over a TD later this week.

Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots

Opening spread: Ravens -3 / Current spread: Ravens -3

Opening total: 43 points / Current total: 43.5 points

If you like the Ravens in Week 3, lock in this spread, as a hook could be added before Sunday.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. New York Jets

Opening spread: Bengals -5 / Current spread: Bengals -4.5

Opening total: 43 points / Current total: 43 points.

The Bengals are winless and in desperate need of a win in Week 3, but will they cover ATS on the road?

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans

Opening spread: Raiders -1 / Current spread: Raiders -1

Opening total: 46 points / Current total: 45.5 points.

This line is likely to start moving after the Titans game against the Bills on MNF.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Commanders

Opening spread: Eagles -1 / Current spread: Eagles -4

Opening total: 50 points / Current total: 50.5 points

The Eagles have already seen the spread they need to cover jump over a FG earlier in the week.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Opening spread: Chargers -10.5 / Current spread: Chargers -7

Opening total: 50.5 points / Current total: 47.5 points

With the Jags playing well, bookmakers have had to adjust the Chargers spread lower.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals

Opening spread: Rams -2 / Current spread: Rams -4

Opening total: 51.5 points / Current total: 50.5 points

The Ram’s spread is up two points despite the Cardinals winning as underdogs in Week 2.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks

Opening spread: Seahawks -4 / Current spread: Seahawks -1.5

Opening total: 42.5 points / Current total: 42.5 points

I’m surprised this line fell below a FG with the Seahawks playing at home.

Green Bay Packers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Opening spread: Buccaneers -3.5 / Current spread: Buccaneers -3

Opening total: 52 points / Current total:: 43.5 points

The total has already ballooned as the Bucs offense has been banged up early in the season.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Denver Broncos

Opening spread: Broncos -2.5 / Current spread: Broncos -1

Opening total: 46.5 points / Current total: 43.5 points

Handicappers expect a defensive battle at Mile High on Sunday night.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants

Opening spread: Cowboys -3 / Current spread: Giants -3

Opening total: 48 points / Current total: 39.5 points

Dak Prescott’s injury has had a big impact on the betting lines. The Giants are now the favorites at home.
