Beating the Book: Handicapping Week 3
Beating the Book: Handicapping Week 3

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Last week was bad. I went 6-10, lost my best bet (Saints) and went 2-3 in the Super Contest.  There were some tough beats like the Chargers and Bears, and the Saints got a legitimate return TD called back because a moronic ref blew the whistle (and lost their starting QB.) But I never complain about the games that go my way when things like that happen, so there are no asterisks by losses, either. Unless you can get a result overturned – a tall order – you have to eat it. The how and why don't matter. 

This week, I hate a lot of my picks. I don't like being on the Dolphins and Jets, and I wish I were on the Giants for Daniel Jones' first start. The Packers also feel sucker-ish, as do the Eagles and Vikings. 

I especially like the Jaguars, Bengals, Cardinals, Seahawks and Browns.

THURSDAY NIGHT

Titans -1.5 at Jaguars

I see these as roughly equal teams (I made the line 2.5), so that the Titans are laying wood on the road off a short week makes it an easy call. Take the Jaguars. 

Jaguars 17 - 16

EARLY GAMES

Broncos +8 at Packers

This was my exact line, so I could go either way, here. I guess I'll take the Packers who play better at home, facing Joe Flacco. But it's a coin flip.
