This is the final week of our ‘free for September’ NFL tips from Russell. In weeks one and two we made a tasty overall profit with four winners from five bets, including two out of two winning accas.
Fingers crossed we’ll finish on a high this weekend then, on Monday, look out for an email explaining how you can get the rest of the season’s selections for a ‘one year only’ special low price.
The winners keep coming with our NFL picks so far this season as our acca landed once again in week two, with Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks delivering the goods. Our handicap pick of the week won for a second week on the bounce too, this time Jacksonville Jaguars covering 7.5 points on the road at Tennessee Titans.
Check out our week three best bets below. All matches will be played on Sunday night.
Week 3 NFL Acca
Atlanta Falcons threw away the chance of victory last week and it’s not often you put up 39 points and lose. It was clearly a good offensive display and they can pick up their first win this week as they return home against a Chicago Bears team who struggled to beat a poor New York Giants side.
Next up is Cleveland Browns who can follow up their win over Cincinnati Bengals with another home win, this time against Washington Football Team. With strong weapons on offence including Odell Beckham, they can put up plenty of points this weekend.
Finally, another team who should have won last week were Los Angeles Chargers, who were superb in defence against Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers can take a lot of confidence from that performance and defeat a poor Carolina Panthers team, who only really have running back McCaffrey as a main danger.
Bet: Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Chargers all to win @ 9/5 (2.8) with William Hill
Stake: 1.5 Points
Houston Texans @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers have won two out of two and offensively are looking strong. With plenty of weapons for Ben Roethlsiberger to choose from, they can pile the pressure on the Texans’ defence.
Running back James Conner had another 100 yard rushing game last week and Diontae Johnson picked up a touchdown and 92 yards receiving. On defence, Steelers have also improved from last season and are always dangerous at getting to the quarter back.
The Texans have to improve from their opening two games and keep the ball better, but this isn’t the right type of game for them to do so.
Bet: Pittsburgh Steelers -4 points on the handicap spread @ 10/11 (1.91) generally
Stake: 1 Point
Chicago Bears @ Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons scored 25 points in week one and then 39 points in week two. Offence clearly isn’t a problem for them and this week they face a Bears team who conceded 23 points in week one against an average Detroit team.
Calvin Ridley has scored two touchdowns in both matches so far this season and is Matt Ryan’s top target. He can once again get on the scoresheet and grab a touchdown in this match. With odds against available for him to do so this is a nice bet.
Bet: Calvin Ridley (Atlanta Falcons) to score a touchdown anytime @ 11/10 with Skybet
Stake: 1 point
