Week 3 NFL Picks

The anticipation is finally over, here are my NFL picks for Week 3. Last week I put forth a championship caliber performance by going 11-3-1 against the spread and I hope to keep the good momentum going (however unlikely that is). To find out the thinking behind each selection, as well as the best and worst plays and upset specials, tune in to The Charlie Bernstein Show from 3-7 EST.

Giants +3 @ Panthers

Home teams usually have an advantage on the short week and that advantage is multiplied when playing a non-divisional game. A couple of days ago Carolina was a 1.5 point underdog but most of the money has come in on the Panthers. There’s just not enough time for the Giants to prepare for the spread-option offense of Carolina’s. Panthers 27, Giants 17
