NFL Week 3 Betting: Saints Host Packers for NBC Sunday Night Football

Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints NFL Week 3, Betting Ods and Picks

Specifically, Sunday Night Football’s success on NBC is preplanned.  NBC consistently gets the best NFL betting matchups.  This Sunday the tradition continues.  New Orleans will host Green Bay.  More emphatically these are two of the best in the NFC.  So far, the Pack has two impressive wins and payouts.  New Orleans gained considerable credibility with their opening day win over Tampa Bay.  Subsequently, they gave back much of that back in a loss at Las Vegas.  The Saints could be a team that may be seeing its Super Bowl window closing.

Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints CashBet Wagering Analysis

At the onset, the sportsbook odds moved 2.5-points towards the Packers.  Cause by last week’s results.

Packers Produce Green and Gold

First game action saw the Packers score a 43-34 win and cover at Minnesota.  Week two was another payout.  The Packers scored a 42-21 win and cover over the Detroit Lions.  Green Bay was seven-point home chalk.  And the game went over 51.0.  The Pack is tied with the Bears for the NFC North lead.  In sum the Packers are 2-0 both straight up, against the spread, and 2-0 over the total.

Following a 14-3 first-quarter deficit the Packers decided to get serious.  And scored the next 34 points against the Lions.  What was most astounding about the win was the ground attack.  To illuminate the Packers are not celebrated for their rushing ability.   However Green Bay rushed for 259 yards.  And averaged 7.4 yards per carry.  Aaron Jones ran for 168 yards and three touchdowns in the win.  So too did Jones catch four passes for 68 yards and a TD.  He was the top Betting on NFL asset on the field.

Saints Exposed at Raiders Monday Night  

Now the Saints are 1-1 straight up and against the spread with both of their games going over.  On Monday New Orleans lost at the Raiders 34-24.  Correspondingly the Saints were 4-point favorites.  Over a total of 47.5 paid as well.  After taking a 17-7 second-quarter lead the Saints were stymied.  Vegas stormed back to take control and the pro football betting money.  In particular, the Raiders had a strong 36:18 time of possession.

So far Drew Brees has a quarterback rating of 93.5.  But is averaging just 6.9 yards per passing attempt.  Brees hasn’t found a receiver capable of making big plays.  The Saints offense has lacked its past explosive nature.  In turn, running back Alvin Kamara leads the Saints in rushing and receiving.
