Giants vs 49ers odds

Opening line

The Giants looked destined for another bad loss but scored 31 straight points to beat Arizona.

Titans vs Browns odds

Opening line

The Browns will, obviously, be without star running back Nick Chubb for Week 3 (and the remainder of the season) after his horrific knee injury in Week 2 against the Steelers. Jerome Ford will carry the majority of the workload on the ground for Cleveland until they firmly make a decision on their plans for the position. The Brown opened as 4.5-point home favorites against the visiting Tennessee Titans, but that number pushed down to -3 following Chubb's injury. The total opened at 41.

Falcons vs Lions odds

Opening line

Some bookies opened Detroit as low as a 2.5-point home favorite hosting Atlanta in Week 3 and that spread jumped to as high as -4.5 on Sunday night. The Lions have lost RB David Montgomery to a thigh injury for a couple of weeks. This will be Atlanta’s first road game of the season, bringing Desmond Ridder into the wild confines of Ford Field. This total opened as low as 44.5 and it up to 47 points.

Weather

Saints vs Packers odds

Opening line

The unbeaten New Orleans Saints roll into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon. The Packers still have plenty of injury issues on offense with David Bakhtiari, Christian Watson, and Aaron Jones all facing Questionable tags for Week 3. The Pack opened as 2.5-point home favorites and the total hit betting boards at 43.

Weather

Texans vs Jaguars odds

Opening line

Depending on where you bet, this spread opened as low as Jacksonville -7 and has since jumped to as high as -10 on Sunday night. Houston hasn’t looked great on either side of the ball and has been outscored 56-29 through two games. Texans rookie QB C.J. Stroud did have a solid showing in the loss to Indianapolis in Week 2, boasting a 103.5 passer rating and connecting for two touchdowns.

Broncos vs Dolphins odds

Opening line

The high-flying Miami Dolphins host the winless Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon in South Florida. Books opening the spread for this AFC contest at Dolphins -5.5, and that number was bet up to -6 almost immediately. The total launched at 45.5 and jumped a full point to 46.5 by Monday morning.

Weather

Chargers vs Vikings odds

Opening line

The Chargers opened as 2-point favorites on the road in Minnesota, but after their second straight narrow loss, the betting market is fading the Bolts in Week 3. This game has slipped to a pick’em with early play on the Vikings, who are coming off a mini bye after playing on Thursday. The Chargers defense has been horrendous through two games, allowing big plays and making costly penalties. This total opened as low as 49.5 and has spiked to as high as 52 points.

Weather

Patriots vs Jets odds

Opening line

The New England Patriots opened as 2-point road favorites for Sunday afternoon's AFC East rivalry game at Metlife Stadium against the New York Jets. Since hitting the board, that number has actually lengthened slightly to Pats -2.5. The total opened at 38 and was bet down to 37.

Weather

Bills vs Commanders odds

Opening line

The Commanders are 2-0 and host the Bills in non-conference play, with Washington catching between +6 and +6.5 at home. This total is also interesting, considering these teams were among the best in EPA per play in Week 2. The Over/Under is on the board around 45.5 and 46 points.

Panthers vs Seahawks odds

Opening line

The Seahawks host the winless Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon in Seattle. Sportsbooks opened the Seahawks as 4.5-point home favorites with a total of 42.5. After the first 24 hours of betting on these opening numbers, they are at Seattle -6 with a total of 42.

Weather

Cowboys vs Cardinals odds

Opening line

Arizona suffered a catastrophic collapse against the Giants, allowing 31 straight points in the second half to lose 31-28. The Cardinals now face the team that stomped New York 40-0 in Week 1: the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas has outscored their last two foes 70-10 and takes on another lackluster offense in Arizona. This spread opened Dallas -13 and we’re down to -12.5 with some early play coming in on the home team. The Cardinals are 2-0 ATS to start 2023.

Weather

Bears vs Chiefs odds

Opening line

Uh oh. Are the Chiefs good on defense now? Kansas City limited a good Detroit offense to 20 points in Week 1 and checked the Jaguars to only nine points in Week 2. Now it faces a stumbling Chicago team that’s 0-2 out of the blocks. Oddsmakers installed the Chiefs as 12.5-point home chalk and that has climbed -13 at some books. This total opened at 49 points with the Bears' defense ranked 28th in EPA allowed per play.

Weather

Steelers vs Raiders odds

Opening line

The Pittsburgh Steelers roll into their second consecutive prime-time contest coming off a big 26-22 victory over the battered Cleveland Browns. The host Las Vegas Raiders opened as 1.5-point home favorites and that number was bet up to -2.5 early in the week. The total hit betting boards at 44.5 and dropped slightly to 43.5 in the first 24 hours after opening.

Eagles vs Buccaneers odds

Opening line

This is a surprising battle between two 2-0 teams on Monday Night Football. The Bucs have stunned their first two foes but are catching a ton of points on the road in Philly. The Eagles have enjoyed a mini bye after beating up on Minnesota in Week 2 and opened as touchdown chalk. That’s down to as low as Eagles -6 at some shops.

Rams vs Bengals odds

Opening line

Joe Burrow reaggravated his calf injury suffered this summer in the loss to Baltimore in Week 2 and told reporters he’s day-to-day. Many books haven’t opened odds on this second Monday night matchup, but the ones that did have moved from Bengals -7 to -6. This total opened 45 and is as low as 44 points with early money banking on Burrow’s bum leg.
