Baltimore Beatdown Game Picks: Week 3

Join the BB team in picking winners for every game this week below!

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Week 2 was another eventful one across the NFL landscape. Three games exceed 60 combined points, 11 favorited teams won and eight underdogs covered the spread. It was a much more successful pick’em performance from the group compared to Week 1.

Everyone on the staff went over .500 and there was some movement in the standings.

Updated standings:

  1. Kyle 21-11
  2. Dustin 20-12
  3. Spencer, Jonas, Josh 19-13
  4. BB readers, Frank 18-14
  5. Vasilis 17-15
  6. Jake 16-16

Consensus picks —

  • Panthers > Texans (CAR -7.5)
  • Bills > Washington (BUF -7.5)
  • Browns > Bears (CLE -6.5)
  • Ravens > Lions (BAL -8.5)
  • Cardinals > Jaguars (AZ -7.5)
  • Chiefs > Chargers (KC -6.5)
  • Patriots > Saints (NE -2.5)
  • Giants > Falcons (NYG -2.5)
  • Titans > Colts (TEN -5.5)
  • Broncos > Jets (DEN -10.5)

The staff is going heavy on favorites this week, as 10 of the 16 games saw a unanimous predicted winner. That includes the Ravens over the Lions, where they’re favorited by 8.5 points on the road, and a handful of other near-double digit favorites: Panthers over Texans, Bills over Washington, etc.

In terms of point spreads, the most surprising consensus predictions are the Patriots over the Saints and the Giants over the Falcons. New England and New York are both 2.5-point favorites at home. Both the Giants and Falcons are looking to avoid falling to 0-3.

Lone wolf picks —

  • Frank is taking the Dolphins over the Raiders as a road underdog (MIA +3)
  • Spencer likes the Vikings to defeat the Seahawks at home (MIN +2)
  • Josh is by himself in picking the Eagles over the Cowboys on SNF (PHI +4)
