NFL Betting Action Report 2023 Week 3

The Jacksonville Jaguars were seeing between 72% and 85% of the betting action as they were coming in as the -7.5 home favorites.


Despite this, a number of books had Jacksonville coming in at -8.5 between Wednesday and Saturday.

Though Jacksonville dominated the Texans in their most recent game last season, Houston beat the Jaguars in all nine of the previous games.

Still, it is tough to back Houston here when one considers they lost their first two games of the season by 11 and 16 points, respectively.

We are going to pull the trigger on Houston covering that +7.5 spread reluctantly.

As of Saturday afternoon, Dave Mason of BetOnline pointed out these lopsided affairs that included Jacksonville seeing 94% of the spread action there:

MIA -6 v DEN 89%

BUF -6 @ WSH 97%

BAL -7.5 v IND

Books were as high as +6.5 with Denver but were bringing this number down.  In fact, DraftKings brought the number down to 5.5 Sunday morning. Both Broncos losses were by 1 and 2 points, respectively. 

We will be on Denver here +6.

The Bills were seeing between 71% and 78% of the action versus the Commanders, who are surprisingly 2-0 coming into this game. 

BetOnline is teasing us with a -5.5 line after Buffalo was coming in at -6 and even -6.5 throughout the week.

Do take Washington here at +6.

Lions were seeing close to 80% at a number of books on the spread as they host Atlanta.  That number was mostly hanging at Detroit -3.5.
