NFL Week 3 Vegas Odds: Texans vs Patriots Betting Trends and Free NFL Pick


Week 3 Texans vs Patriots Football Free Pick, Betting Trends and Vegas Odds


The Houston Texans will travel to Gillette Stadium for a NFL week 3 Vegas odds matchup against the defending Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots.  Kickoff is slated for 1:00 pm ET on CBS.  

The Patriots come off a week 2 that included 555 all purpose yards and a QB that threw for 477 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Yes, the Saints defense is not the most difficult to play against but it was the way that Brady does things that gets the highlights.  The Patriots targets were Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett as wideouts and RB Rex Burkhead in the slot and TE Rob Gronkowski.  There were 6 rushers and 9 Patriots with receptions after all of the exchanges.  The offensive line is very versatile and multi positional.  All of this talent can be seen as an unfair advantage for the QB.  Get ready Houston.  It looks like the Brady attack is back and he has all of his players backing him up.  New England Patriots are 5 time Super Bowl Champions and week 2 reminded us why.

The NFL odds makers betting favorite is the New England Patriots with -13½(-110) point spread, making the Houston Texans the road dog with +13½(-110) point spread. The over under for this week 3 NFL picks matchup has been set to 44(-115)u.

Texans Rookie QB Deshaun Watson out of Clemson scored the only touchdown in week 2 for the team and it was the longest TD run by a quarterback in his debut in NFL history.  He rushed for a total of 67 yards and completed 15 of 24 passes for 125 yards.  RB Lamar Miller has 61 rushing yards and Rookie RB D’Onta Foreman contributed 40.  On the receiving end WR DeAndre Hopkins was leader with 7 rec for 73 yards with Lamar Miller grabbing 3 rec for 26 yards.  Texans kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn went 2/2 with field goals the longest of which was 42 yards.  Houston’s defense looked like they did in 2016 in comparison to week 1 but that was against a team with no touchdowns this season and a fired offensive coordinator.

In the words of defensive end JJ Watt, “[Week 2] was much more us than the other night. Like I said, [Week 1] we were all hyped up, everyone wanted to win the Super Bowl on the first play. And we just needed to settle down and play our football.”
