NFL Week 3 Picks & Predictions Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Chiefs vs. Colts
Travis Kelce (-130 DraftKings)
After failing to find the endzone in week 2 against the Charges, I think Kelce finds his way back in week 3 against the Colts. Indianapolis has allowed the 5th most receptions and a league-high 85.7% catch rate to opposing tight ends.
With the total at 50,5 points, bookmakers expect this to be a high-scoring affair despite the Colts’ offense’s struggles. If this turns out to be accurate, you know Mahomes will rely on Kelce early and often.
What is Betting Against the Spread?
Betting “against the spread” refers to the act of choosing the winning team based on a numeric handicap placed on the team that oddsmakers believe is superior, rather than picking the outright winner. For example, if the Rams face the Bengals, and oddsmakers set the spread at Rams -3.5, you would need Los Angeles to win by 4 or more points in order to cash your Rams bet.
What is an Over/Under Bet?
Over/Under is a wager based on how many points you think will be scored in a specific game. Oddsmakers set the total, and bettors decide whether the final score will be higher or lower than that number. If an Over/Under is set at 44.5 points and you bet Over, you will need the combined score of both teams to be 45 points or higher to win your bet.
What is a Moneyline Bet?
A moneyline bet involves choosing which team you believe will win a specific matchup. The moneyline favorite carries a minus designation, like -130. This means that you need to wager $130 to earn a $100 profit. Conversely, the underdog carries a plus designation, like +110. This means that you win $110 in profit on a $100 bet.
