Week 2 of the NFL betting season brought a few surprises across the sixteen games, including the Los Angeles Rams getting the better of the Seattle Seahawks, despite a second successive game without a touchdown.

Here we take a look at some Week 3’s live action on Sky Sports…

Houston Texans @ New England Patriots (Friday 1:25am)

Recommended Bet:

Texans -3pts at 5/4 with William Hill

Houston travel for the first time this season, as they visit New England, looking to continue their 2-0 record, thanks in part to the improved defence, which has conceded just 12 points in the last six quarters.

New England (2-0) have a major Quarterback (QB) headache, with Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury meaning third string player, Jacoby Brissett, will get the nod until Tom Brady returns. After the injury, the Patriots nearly capitulated to Miami, as the offence flatlined in the second half.

The Texans defence can take advantage of the Patriots QB issue and win.

Washington Redskins @ New York Giants (Sunday 6pm)

Recommended Bet:

Over 46.5 Points bet at Evens with Skybet

Washington will be looking for a better defensive performance at least, against NY Giants on Sunday, having conceded eight touchdowns and 65 points so far in two losses.

The New York Giants won narrowly for the second game running against the Saints last week, with a less than dynamic display, which was decided by a field goal.

The Giants may not be the most exciting team to watch but they are getting the job done, unlike the Redskins, who cannot plug the holes in their Swiss cheese defence. Expect the Giants to score well.

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints (Tuesday 1:30am)

Recommended Bet:

Falcons to win at 7/5 with bet365

Atlanta won at the second time of asking, with a 7pt win over the Raiders. The offence may be firing, but defensively the Falcons need to tighten up, with 59 points conceded in the opening two games.

On the face of it, Saints seem a little unlucky, losing the opening two games so far, however the loss to the Raiders on the opening day, saw the defence concede 22 last-quarter points, although they improved in the defeat to the Giants.

The Saints are favourites in a battle between two relatively poor defensive sides, however if the Falcons can limit the defensive problems, they could have a chance.
