Backed with more knowledge because of games played, we can survey the NFL landscape with more confidence as we work on making sides or totals selections for Week 3 of the 2017 season.
For your reading please, we will focus on totals for NFL picks, attempting determine the three best choices on the board and capitalize on them.
With scoring down due to a variety of factors, sportsbooks setting the NFL odds have been forced to make adjustments and many of the totals we see reflect that this week. Regardless, these are my three top total picks for Week 3.
With the way the Cincinnati offense and defense are playing, it would seem inconceivable to contemplate backing an OVER. This should be especially true with Green Bay having 13 players listed on their injury report, which includes Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Why I still like the higher score is the Bengals have too much offensive talent to keep playing like they are and at 0-2, they will have an advanced case of urgency. Besides, some of the those Packers injuries are on defense. Let’s also consider Green Bay at Lambeau Field, where in the last 5+ seasons they have averaged 28.7 PPG and the average final score reached 47.9. With a listed total of 44, I will back the OVER.
