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.

Monday Night Football Props At BetDSI For Packers vs. Seahawks

The last two teams of the week to kick it off on Monday Night Football betting action this week are the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. Check out some of the NFL prop bets that are available at BetDSI, as we analyze the betting lines and see which sides to play.

Longest Field Goal of the Game Under 44.5 Yards: Kicking in Seattle isn’t one of the easiest things to do, especially for two kickers that aren’t often allowed to kick the big time boots. Granted, K Mason Crosby has a huge leg and can kick it from 60, but K Steven Hauschka isn’t all that great of a kicker.

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).
