  • Using the Action Network's betting tools, we've broken down the key numbers, most lopsided spreads & totals and the biggest line moves of NFL Week 3.

Welcome to the Week 3 NFL Betting Market Report, where no quarterback jokes, puns, quips or mean remarks will be made. As far as I’m concerned, this is just a normal old Week 3 — just so happens that there’s about a half dozen fewer starting QBs playing than we were expecting a month ago. Hey, maybe a couple of them end up being half decent, who knows?

Odds as of Wednesday morning and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can exclusively bet every NFL spread this season at reduced juice (-105).

Key Numbers

Texans-Chargers: It’s just Week 3, but anyone holding a Texans or Chargers division or Super Bowl ticket isn’t going to feel great about their team falling to 1-2. Hell, I’m pretty afraid about my Texans division ticket even though the AFC South quarterbacks other than Deshaun Watson are Gardner Minshew, Jacoby Brissett and Marcus Mariota.

After opening at +3.5, bettors have taken kindly to Houston. The Chargers just lost to the Lions, remember?! What happened last week is the most important thing in the world in the eyes of the public, which is why 70% of tickets are on Houston.

Most books have taken the hook away and have set the line at LAC -3 with enough juice to put the Mott’s factory under.

Steelers-49ers: Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys are headed to San Fran, and guess what? They are actually seeing some sharp support. Ah, damn … I guess I lied about the backup QB remarks.
