Arizona Cardinals vs. St. Louis Rams Pick

NFC West rivals that are hoping to get into the playoffs this year are going to battle it out in a crucial tilt at the Edward Jones Dome for Thursday Night Football betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona’s defense had its first atrocious game last week, as the yardage just kept piling up against the Miami Dolphins. QB Ryan Tannehill, a rookie playing in just his fourth ever game, threw for over 400 yards, and the secondary just had no answers whatsoever.

Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Pick

Two of the most hated rivals in football betting action will meet on Sunday afternoon at Mile High, where the Denver Broncos will face off with the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland has had all sorts of success in this series over the course of the last few years, and all of it really spurns around the offense. Even though this is a team that has historically struggled quite a bit on the offensive side of the ball, and the Raiders have been through a ton of quarterbacks, they just keep scoring big time points against the Broncos.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Pick

NFC North foes battle it out in what is becoming one of the most intriguing games of the week in NFL betting action, as the Detroit Lions will fight it out with the Minnesota Vikings.

Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.

Cleveland Browns vs Baltimore Ravens Pick

Two teams that used to take up residence in the Dawg Pound are going to meet on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football betting festivities in Week 4, as the Cleveland Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens.



This is going to be a tough draw for the Browns, knowing that they are already facing an 0-3 start to the season and now have to get ready for the Baltimore no-huddle attack with just three days of preparation.

Houston Texans vs. Denver Broncos Pick

The Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos are going to fight it out in a battle on the NFL betting lines in Week 3 against one another in the national game of the week on CBS.

Every now and again, a team has to learn how to lose a big game before it can learn to win one. The Texans figured out how to lose that close game against a great team last year on the road when they were beaten by the Baltimore Ravens.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pick

Two teams with a heck of a lot of ties to one another will meet on the Week 3 NFL odds on Sunday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium, where the Arizona Cardinals will host the Philadelphia Eagles in one of the two battles of the weekend between 2-0 teams.

It’s not often that you say that you see something you’ve never seen before in the history of the NFL, but the Eagles are doing something that has never been done. They are the first team in league history to win their first two games by a single point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys Pick

The 2012 home schedule for the Dallas Cowboys begins on Sunday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as they try to beat the NFL betting lines in this Week 3 clash.

The Buccaneers have really set the tone for what should be a great tenure for Head Coach Greg Schiano. Tampa Bay made it known last week against the New York Giants that it isn’t going to be a gigantic pushover as it was last year.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Washington Redskins Pick

QB Robert Griffin III is going to be making his debut in front of his hometown fans at FedEx Field in NFL betting action this week for his Washington Redskins when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

Last year, Cincinnati went 9-0 against teams that didn’t get into the playoffs and 0-8 against teams that did, including a first round loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium. This year, that appears to be holding serve, as the Bengals beat the Cleveland Browns (not going to the playoffs) and lost to the Baltimore Ravens (probably will go to the playoffs).

NFL Betting: NFL Matchups for Week 3

Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NFL betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 3!

Last year, the Colts and the Jaguars were two of the worst teams in the league, and the two games were total dogs. This year, both of these teams could be just as bad this year. The Colts at least have a future now in QB Andrew Luck, and he had a fantastic game last week in his home opener against the Vikings.

Saints @ Panthers Football Free Pick

The Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints both started off the campaign with bad losses in NFL betting action last week. One will be knocked down to 0-2 when these two squads meet on Tobacco Road in an NFC South rivalry game in Week 2.

New Orleans was shockingly bad on both sides of the ball last week against the Washington Redskins. The team went three and out a whopping three times in its first four drives,
