Week 3 spreads: Flacons vs. Patriots, Titans @ NY Jets, point spreads

 We continue our Week 3 point spreads previews with the betting odds on two great football games this Sunday, the Atlanta Flacons vs. New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans vs. NY Jets. After reaching the playoffs last year, the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) are once again doing just fine on the football field and after a morale-boosting victory last week against the Panthers, in Week 3 they will face the New England Patriots (1-1) who made a blunder against the Jets last Sunday. And speaking of the NY Jets (2-0), they seem to be doing just fine without Favre and will welcome the struggling Tennessee Titans (0-2) in football Week 3. But let's get to the current point spreads and betting odds on the games.

 Opening our preview with the point spread and odds on the Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots, the betting numbers at the sportsbook Bookmaker have the Pats a big favorite to win the Week 3 game with money line -215, while the Falcons will play at Gillette Stadium as underdog with +185 odds on victory. The point spread on Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots at the bookie is favoring the Pats by 4 points while the total is posted as 47 points. Note that even though the Patriots have won 5 out of their last 6 games, New England is 3-11 against the spread in its last 14 games at home. Meanwhile Atlanta is 4-2 straight up in its last 6 games when playing New England. In Atlanta running back Jerious Norwood was the only player missing Wednesday practice, but in New England wide receiver Wes Welker was absent yesterday and a long list of Patriots players had a limited Wednesday practice, including CB Terrence Wheatley, wide receivers Matt Slater and Julian Edelman, along with tight end Chris Baker and defensive end Myron Pryor. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady meanwhile did a full one, recovering from a right shoulder injury.

 Moving forward to the Tennessee Titans vs. NY Jets match-up, the odds and spreads on this game don't look very promising for the Titans fans. At Bookmaker the NY Jets are the favorite team of the game with odds -150 on yet another victory, while the Titans hold odds +130 to finally get a W in Week 3. The Tennessee Titians vs. NY Jets point spread is at -3 points chalk the Jets with the total down at 37 points. If you are going to bet the spreads in Week 3, keep in mind that Tennessee is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games, but 7-2 ATS in its last 9 games on the road. The Jets, however, are perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing the Titans. Also note that the total has gone OVER in 4 of the NY Jets last 6 games at home. Only linebacker Stanford Keglar and tight end Bo Scaife skipped Wednesday practice for the Titans and the Jets seem to recover nicely as well having only cornerbacks Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland to worry about. The Titans and Jets will face off early on Sunday at 1:00pm EST for Week 3 football.
