Week 3 of the 2010 NFL campaign is going to get underway this weekend. Below you will find the current list of 2010 Week 3 NFL lines and spreads along with a breakdown of the Week 3 NFL odds. Be sure to check out the free NFL picks from the expert handicappers at Bankroll Sports this weekend…

There has only been one double digit NFL betting favorite all season long coming into Week 3, but this week, there are already three that are favored by at least ten points and another team that might be there by the time the weekend kicks off.

The Minnesota Vikings might be an 0-2 team, but the oddsmakers think that they are going to crush the Week 3 spread, as they are comfortable ten point favorites over the Detroit Lions. The Lions have been a feisty team so far this season. Even though they are 0-2 SU, they are 2-0 ATS after last week’s backdoor cover against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Vikes badly need a better game out of QB Brett Favre than he has had so far this season, as a ratio of one TD pass to four picks just isn’t going to cut it. If Minnesota doesn’t at least win this game, there is going to be a lot of discussion about whether Favre and/or HC Brad Childress deserve to keep their respective jobs.

The New England Patriots are coming off of a loss last week to the New York Jets, but QB Tom Brady and the gang should have no problems against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills were the only team to be a double digit pup this year, and the end result was a hefty 34-7 romp at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. With New England playing its second game at home and coming off of the bad loss in the Meadowlands, the NFL oddsmakers are expecting to see a hefty final score. The Pats are the biggest chalks of all the week 3 NFL  lines at -13.5.

The Baltimore Ravens are the third double digit favorite this week, as they are 10.5 point home choices against the Cleveland Browns.

Road favorites are en vogue as well in Week 3 betting action. The Cincinnati Bengals are 3.5 point choices over the Carolina Panthers, who will be giving rookie Jimmy Clausen the first start of his career as he hopes to guide the 0-2 Panthers in a new direction. Cincinnati is coming off of an ugly 15-10 win against the Ravens last week to keep within one game in the AFC North standings.

The team leading the pack in the AFC North is the Pittsburgh Steelers, and in spite of the fact that they are playing now with just fourth string quarterback Charlie Batch, they are still at 2-0 both SU and ATS having pulled off a pair of outright upsets as underdogs. They’ll head to the Sunshine State to tango with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are also a surprising 2-0 on the season. These two are expected to put on an ugly affair, as the ‘total’ is set at 34, which is already the lowest of the season and might not be bested this year.

The two games to really keep an eye on this week are going to be played in the south. In the Lone Star State, the surprising 2-0 Houston Texans will take on the 0-2 Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Wade Phillips might be coaching for his job this week, as an 0-3 team going into its bye week certainly won’t be owner Jerry Jones a happy camper. The Texans just won their first overtime game in team history last week and could be off to their first ever 3-0 start if they can beat the 2.5 point spread they are faced with at home on Sunday afternoon.

Sunday Night Football heads to Miami on Sunday night, where the Miami Dolphins at 2-0 can put a huge gap between themselves and the New York Jets. In their home opener, the Fins are 1.5 point favorites to topple the Jets, who were originally favored to win the AFC East at the outset of the season.
