On our Matchups page, will find a list of games and critical Vegas data to help you analyze each game. From Sunday to Sunday, there are many changes to team matchups and vegas odds. This page is continuously updating and the matchups page will keep all the elements stored for your reference. We offer unique team ratings that breakdown into defense, offense, and overall team rating. We track the opening and live team totals, over/unders, and moneylines. With NFL DFS in mind, you can't set a lineup without considering what Vegas has to say. Team totals are a predictor in offensive performances, and we often look for both good and bad. Spreads can dictate how a game flows. If a team sits as huge favorite, a running back might get some more carries due to them being ahead in the second half. If you look into an individual game matchup, our odds comparison shows Vegas and Lineups numbers based on our algorithm. We have been tracking prior games, and historical data can help you with fantasy or betting. The interesting thing with NFL is digging into teams scoring tendencies. Bad teams will tend to rack up points in the second half, and if you are live betting or playing half over/unders, this can help.
Week 3 matchups begin in Cleveland on Thursday night, as they take on the Jets. Yeah this isn’t going to be an exciting game, and Vegas is expecting a low scoring game, although it is not the lowest of the week. Cleveland has kept things fairly low scoring through their first two games of the season, while the Jets offense looked great in Week 1, but fell back down to earth in Week 2. Sunday’s slate of games kick off with a higher scoring affair, as Atlanta takes on New Orleans. The Saints could be an extra point away from being 0-2 right now, and will need to get back on track against Atlanta, who won last week against the Panthers. This total is set at 52 at the moment, and the Falcons have a field goal edge according to Vegas. The upside this game brings for offense is there, but also whenever you have these high totals, there is a chance for a letdown if offenses are not clicking. The next high total game on the slate is San Francisco and Kansas City. Pat Mahomes is coming off a six-touchdown performance against Pittsburgh, and heads home for his Kansas City debut. San Francisco’s defense is still not up to par, and Mahomes chance of putting up more points is highly likely. With Kansas City’s defense in rough shape, we could be seeing more and more. The overs in Kansas City should be popular this season, and for fantasy purposes this is a game that should feature a lot of scoring.
Sunday’s early games also bring some pedestrian ones. Oakland travels to Miami, as two of the more unappealing teams square off. Oakland has started the season 0-2, and will look to try and get a win against a bad Miami team. The Minnesota Vikings are -17 favorites at home against Buffalo, and Buffalo’s season has been a disaster to no one’s surprise. Minnesota should take care of business, but that is also a fairly high spread to cover. The Bills also have a team total of 12, which is the lowest on the slate. Indy is coming off a somewhat surprising win against the Redskins, and they stay within the NFC East taking on the reigning Super Bowl champs. Carson Wentz is likely to start this week, and the team total is over 25. Indy has a somewhat surprising high total of 20.25, and Vegas is showing faith in Andrew Luck early on. Speaking of Washington, they face Green Bay this week, but are home where they look to pull off an upset. Carolina is a small home favorite against Cincinnati, which seems to be a meh game to follow. It is likely going to be ugly, and the same goes for Tennessee-Jacksonville, Denver-Baltimore, and New York-Houston. Not a lot of offense is going to be found within these games, and the spreads are pretty much tossups.
Heading into the afternoon games the Rams-Chargers square off in a battle of LA. However, the Chargers have not looked comfortable on defense, and Los Angeles has that 27.5 team total. They also come in as touchdown favorites. Chicago head on the road as touchdown favorites against Arizona, which shows how bad Arizona is right now. The Bears are in a great spot to pick up another win, and the correlation of Jordan Howard and Bears defense is looking good. The Cardinals offense has been disastrous, and they are a bottom three team total this week. Seattle will look to get right in a home game against Dallas, which is a winnable game especially at home. This game is basically a pick’em right now, so putting some action down isn’t the worst idea. The primetime games feature two likely shootouts, and the Lions defense has allowed over 80 points to start the season. They now face Tom Brady. The 51.5 total is the fourth highest on the slate, and one of the four games with over a 50 total this weekend. The Patriots are touchdown favorites, even on the road. The Monday Night Football game is in Tampa, and Pittsburgh is coming off a home loss against Kansas City. With Ryan Fitzpatrick balling out in Tampa, Vegas has set this game with a 53.5 total. There has been some drama in Pittsburgh, which is going to surround the Steelers this week. This is a pick’em, and right now is a true tossup given how each team has played so far.
