Week 3 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Beazley)

Here are my Week 3 NFL picks against the spread (ATS):

Dallas Cowboys -4.5 (over St. Louis Rams)

The Rams have one of the best young defenses in the league. Dallas is having issues again on offense, this time with play calling, so it's not all Tony Romo's fault. I do think the Cowboys get back on track with a convincing win at home vs. the Rams.

In the preseason, I predicted Tony Romo would throw for 5,000 yards, and Sunday I expect him to have a big game as I think they will look towards Dez Bryant a little more than they did against Kansas City last week. Dallas at home, 27-17.

Buffalo Bills +2.5 (over New York Jets)

The Jets should not be giving points to anyone this year. Buffalo is just off an impressive last-minute win at home vs. the Panthers this past weekend and I think the momentum keeps going on Sunday.

The Bills are 5-2 ATS in their last seven in NY, and the road team is 8-3 in the last eleven. E.J. Manuel will prove why he was selected ahead of Geno Smith with a big road win. Buffalo, 20-16.

Arizona Cardinals +7.5 (over New Orleans Saints)

The Cardinals are a much better team than they are getting credit for. Carson Palmer is obviously not the long-term solution in Arizona, but he is good enough to get the Cardinals in position to win games. Larry Fitzgerald is obviously one of the top WRs in the NFL. The Saints will have a hard enough time stopping Larry Fitz, but they now have to contend with two of the most underrated WRs in the NFL in Andre Roberts, and Michael Floyd.

I have a feeling this is one of those games we look back at during Sunday Night Football, and say "how the hell did the Cardinals beat the Saints?" Cardinals upset the Saints, 34-30.

Five of our contributors make three weekly picks ATS every week and they will be posted here.
