An Early Look At The NFL Week 3 Opening Odds For 2021

  • The Tennessee Titans are 5.5-point favorites against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
  • The Seattle Seahawks are favored by two points on the road against the Minnesota Vikings.
  • The New England Patriots have -105 betting odds to cover the -3.0-point spread against the New Orleans Saints.

NASHVILLE – Some of the more interesting games this week are between the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans as well as between the Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings and the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints.

Indianapolis Colts Vs. Tennessee Titans

The Indianapolis Colts are set in a weird position where nobody quite knows whether Carson Wentz will play or not. If Wentz is out, the Colts’ chances of winning go with him and is the likeliest reason why NFL betting sites have set the line slanted towards the Tennessee Titans.

Titans Vs. Colts Spread odds

  • Tennessee Titans -5.5 -110
  • Indianapolis Colts +5.5 -110

Once the news becomes official on Wentz’s status, this line will likely move so it’ll be important to keep an eye on this wager as the week progresses.

This game is set for Sunday at 1 p.m. EST start on CBS.

Seattle Seahawks Vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings will play in what is expected to be the highest-scoring game of the week. The Seahawks are 2-point road favorites for this matchup, which could interest some sports bettors, but the total set by online sportsbooks is the most intriguing line here.

Seahawks Vs. Vikings total Odds

  • OVER 55.5 -110
  • UNDER 55.5 -110

The average score of a Vikings game has been 59 points through two weeks while the Seahawks average total is at 53.5 points. Both teams are in the bottom five in yards allowed per game and both have good enough offenses to take advantage of it.

There have only been two games this season with a total set at 55 or more points and both the OVER and UNDER are 1-1 in those games. For reference, the average score of these games is 49.5 points.

This matchup is scheduled to begin at 4:25 p.m. EST on Sunday and will air on FOX.

New England Patriots Vs. New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints will take on the New England Patriots on Sunday in a cross-conference matchup. The Pats are favored by three points, which may interest some gamblers but the game is most noted for having the lowest total out of any other Week 3 game.

Patriots Vs. Saints Total Odds

  • OVER 41.0 -105
  • UNDER 41.0 -115

The Saints are coming off of a seven-point scoring outing in Week 2 while the Patriots will be fresh off of allowing six points. So far, neither the Patriots nor the Saints have been in a game that has had a total higher than 41 points. The UNDER is 7-1 in games with a closing total of 45 points or less this season and this game seems primed to continue the trend.

The kick-off is set for 1 p.m. EST on Sunday with coverage available on FOX.
