2017 NFL week 3 Upsets To Watch For

Now that the third week of the NFL season is complete, teams are starting to emerge as contenders. There are also a few teams that are starting to decline and prove to be pretenders. Although teams are taking on an identity, there are still several NFL upsets that can be found.

Here is a look at the NFL Week 3 upsets:

What makes an Upset?

An upset is when a team that is labeled an underdog (using the sports betting odds found at MyBookie.ag) wins the game. Last week we were able to find one big upset as one underdog trounced a favorite and won in blowout fashion. This week there are several teams that could pull off the big upset, to include the Thursday night game between the Rams and the 49ers. That game is interesting but it did not make our list of NFL Week 3 Upsets to watch for.

When selecting this week’s upsets we used this complete list of 2017 week 3 NFL Lines. All of the point spreads used in this article are provided by MyBookie.ag. They are the #1 sportsbook in our top online sportsbook list and we have a complete sportsbook review here.

If you are looking where to bet on NFL week 3, we have you covered. 

Washington Redskins (+3) Over the Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders hit the road and go coast-to-coast to take on the Washington Redskins. The Raiders are off an easy win against the New York Jets and should have one eye on the schedule. After the game against the Redskins, the Raiders will travel to play the Denver Broncos in what could be a battle for the AFC West. The Redskins are in a unique handicapping angle that we like to look at. They won outright as a road underdog and are once again an underdog at home. The Redskins are an incredible 11-5 ATS in the last 16 games overall and will get the upset this week.

Detroit Lions (+3) Over the Atlanta Falcons

After laying an egg against the Chicago Bears in week one, the Falcons rebounded with a big win over the Green Bay Packers. With that win, the bandwagon filled back up. Meanwhile the Detroit Lions won on Monday night Football and they have yet to lose on the season. The Lions are overlooked. Like the Redskins, they are in a sweet spot this week. They won outright as a road underdog and are now a home underdog. They are playing with momentum and they have a defense that is getting after the quarterback and causing turnovers. The Lions are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games. This is the game that makes everyone realize that the Lions are for real.

LA Chargers (+3) Over the Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the big surprise teams this season. They have beat two quality opponents in the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, emerging as a contender. They travel to the coat to take on the hard luck Chargers. The Chargers have been in both games that they have played this year, but they have come up short in both outings The Chargers have been able to score against tough defenses and always start the year off on a good note. They are 11-4-2 ATS in the month of September. The Chiefs are in desperate need of a win and they get against a divisional opponent.
