Records as of 1995.
Best NFL preseason Week 3 over bets
Denver Broncos (10-7 SU, 12-5 O/U in Week 3)
The Broncos are 1-1 O/U thus far in the 2013 preseason after being defeated by the Seattle Seahawks 40-10 in Week 2. In the two combined games, Denver has managed just 20 points with quarterback Brock Osweiler getting the bulk of snaps on offense. The Broncos host the St. Louis Rams in their Week 3 game and it will be the first home game of the preseason. Both home games went over the total in their 2012 preseason.
Indianapolis Colts (7-9 SU, 11-5 O/U in Week 3)
The Colts were one of the top under plays in the 2012 regular season (6-10 O/U) but have trended over the total in Week 3 of the preseason since '95. Indy was throttled in its preseason opener 44-20 drawing the ire of team owner Jim Irsay. They bounced back in fine fashion, defeating the New York Giants 20-12 in Week 2 behind a pair of TD tosses by Andrew Luck.The Colts have played over the total in three consecutive Week 3 preseason games. Indy will host the Cleveland Browns in Week 3.
Best NFL preseason Week 3 under bets
New York Giants (2-15 SU, 4-13 O/U in Week 3)
The G-Men are already 0-2 O/U to start the 2013 preseason, with their Week 2 matchup against the Colts playing under the 41 point total Sunday night. The Giants have played under the total in three straight Week 3 preseason games.
New York Jets (13-4 SU, 4-13 O/U in Week 3)
The Jets are coming off a massive Week 2 37-13 blowout of the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. The big offensive production pushed their O/U record to 2-0 in their two preseason games. Mark Sanchez played the majority of the game and the rushing attack - spearheaded by Bilal Powell - looked effective against the Jags.
The Jets and Giants meetup in Week 3.
The two clubs traditionally square off in the preseason and have played under the total in eight of the last 10 and two straight heading into their 2013 matchup.
