NFL Week 3 Odds: Tom Brady A Rare Underdog, Saints Dogs Against Patriots And Rookie Mac Jones

The NFL just doesn't miss. Week 2 did its best to live up to the action that unfolded across the league during the opening slate and we were treated to a number of high-drama games. Last Thursday had us on the edge of our seats at the Washington Football Team was able to boot a game-winning field goal and Sunday Night Football gave us a heavyweight slugfest between the Ravens and Chiefs, which came down to the final seconds. It was also another solid weekend for Underdogs, who went 9-6 ATS through the first 15 games. 

While we're still waiting for Week 2 to fully go in the books with the Packers and Lions still set to kick off Monday Night Football, it's never too early to keep an eye on what's to come in Week 3. Below, we'll analyze the early lines for next weekend's slate. 

Week 3 early odds

(All lines from Caesars Sportsbook, all games on Sunday unless noted)

Panthers (2-0) at Texans (1-1), Thursday

Opening line: Panthers -7 

The Panthers and Texans are two of just five teams who have been able to begin the year 2-0 ATS (Detroit can also move to 2-0 if they cover vs. Green Bay). Sam Darnold has been impressive during the early stages of his Panthers career and is coming into Week 3 following a straight-up win over the Saints where he threw for 305 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. Meanwhile, the Texans are playing better than anyone imagined they would be to start the season. That said, quarterback Tyrod Taylor did leave their Week 2 contest with the Browns due to a hamstring injury. Head coach David Culley did not rule Taylor out for this Thursday matchup, but this will certainly be worth monitoring. If Taylor is out, this spread will likely increase in favor of Carolina with rookie Davis Mills the likely starter for Houston. 

Colts (0-2) at Titans (1-1) 

Opening line: Titans -5

Tennessee is coming off the heels of a thrilling comeback win over the Seattle Seahawks in overtime. Derrick Henry was able to lead the way with two fourth quarter touchdowns to help force overtime. As for the Colts, they fell to 0-2 on the season after losing to the Rams at home. Carson Wentz was also injured during this matchup, which could have an impact on this line as we continue to learn more about his status for Week 3. If he's unable to play, that puts Jacob Eason in under center. Recently, the road team has had the edge in this head-to-head as they are 5-0 ATS in their last five meetings.
