NFL Predictions Week 3: Thursday Night Football


Well I had another week of a 10-6 SU record which is not great but did improve to 11-5 ATS which is a big improvement after last weeks disaster. Yearly records are now 20-12 SU and 17-14-1 ATS.  I’ll be back Saturday with the rest of the picks for the week.

FALCONS (-6.5) over Buccaneers– This is kind of a big game for both teams, but certainly much bigger for Tampa Bay who is already 0-2 on the season with both losses at home. The Bucs have looked inept on offense and if they can not turn it around against the Falcons non-existent defense then its likely they won’t turn it around at any point this year. Thus far having QB Josh McCown out there has more or less limited the benefits that the team had with their big receivers and that is supposed to be the driving force of the offense. Atlanta was stymied against the Bengals but they can redeem themselves with a big performance against the Bucs defense that is not flashy but should be good even with all the injuries they have suffered. I think this will be a big game for Matt Ryan who will get back on track and lead his team to a pretty convincing win. Falcons 26 Buccaneers 14
