NFL point spread: Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks, Saints vs. Bills spreads

 Yet another exciting NFL week is ahead of us and today we will start our previews with the point spread and odds on the Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills football games. In the first Sunday afternoon game, the Chicago Bears (1-1) will attempt to bank on the advantage and momentum gained from their meeting with the Steelers last week, while the Seattle Seahawks (1-1) will try to regroup after losing to the 49ers last week by a 13-point spread. The second NFL game in our preview will match up the New Orleans Saint (2-0) who are on a roll after plowing through the Eagles last week in Philadelphia and the Buffalo Bills (1-1) who also had a nice Week 2, beating Tampa Bay at home 20-33.

 We begin our preview of the Week 3 NFL point spread and betting odds with the numbers posted at the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker on the Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks Sunday football game. At the bookie the Bears are the favorite team to win this battle, although the betting odds are quite small at just -130 on a W, while the Seattle Seahawks will come out on Qwest Field as a small underdog with odds +110 to win the Week 3 game. The Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks point spread is currently at -2 points chalk the Bears with the total set at 37 points by the betting site. Naturally such a small NFL point spread is attracting the attention of the football bettors and at this point the Bears - Saints game is the most bet on event at the sportsbook with the majority of the bettors taking the Bears to cover the tiny spread. But keep in mind that betting trends show that Chicago is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games on the road, although the Seahawks are 2-4 against the spread in their last 6 games when playing the Chicago Bears. Also, the total has gone UNDER in 6 of Seattle's last 7 games at home.

 Moving on to the second match-up on our NFL spread and line preview - the New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills. Needless to say, the Saints are bringing unexpected joy to their fans down south, first with an opener victory against the Lions at home and a big W last week against the Eagles in Philadelphia. Of course, the betting lines at Bookmaker are reflecting the game of New Orleans and the Saints are -270 odds-on favorite in Week 3, when they travel to New York to meet the Buffalo Bills, who are big +230 underdog. The New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills point spread is set by the odds makers at -6 points chalk the Saints and the total expected by the sportsbook is a whopping 52 points. Keep in mind that even though Buffalo is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games, the Bills have covered the spread in just one of their last 6 games at home. The New Orleans Saints meanwhile are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games on the road and the total has gone OVER in 5 of New Orleans's last 6 games.
