Two Super Bowl rematches will highlight the NFL’s Week 3 schedule, including one that took place last year. Rams vs. Bengals takes place on Monday Night Football, with Cincinnati looking for revenge after LA won Super Bowl LVI. The Bengals are 5.5-point favorites in the NFL Week 3 odds as they look for their first win of the season. The other rematch comes from Super Bowl XXVI in 1992, in which Washington handed the Bills the second of four straight Big Game losses. This time, Buffalo is favored by 6.5 on NFL spreads, despite Washington starting 2-0 in a dozen years.
The Commanders are one of six NFL Week 3 underdogs and the home dogs are 4-6 against the spread so far in 2023.

Top NFL Week 3 Predictions
One of the model’s strongest picks in Week 3 of the NFL is that the Chiefs (-12.5) cover the Bears in nearly 60% of simulations. The defending Super Bowl champions facing a team on a 12-game losing streak is the reason for the big number, but it might not be big enough. The Bears have lost both games this season by double digits, and their opponents, Green Bay and Tampa, are nowhere near Kansas City’s level on offense.
Chicago has lost its last five games by at least 10 points. The Bears lost an average of 8.9 during their first seven losses, but have since lost an average of 19.4 in their last five losses. Patrick Mahomes already faced Chicago once in 2019 and his Chiefs nearly lost the game in a 26-3 loss. The Chiefs must win by more than two touchdowns and become 12.5-point favorites nearly 60% of the time. See which other teams to choose here.
Another one of his Week 3 NFL predictions: The Dolphins (-7) cover the spread at home against the Broncos. This is one of the few games on the NFL Week 3 schedule in which a team that is 2-0 against the spread (Miami) faces a team that is 0-2 ATS (Denver). The South Beach humidity has also been a House of Horrors for a franchise that plays in the Mile High City, as the Dolphins are 8-1 at home against the Broncos.
Denver has an 0-2 record both head-to-head and against the spread despite starting two games at home, while the Dolphins are 2-0 despite starting two games on the road. Miami is arguably the best offensive team at the start of the season, ranking first in yards and third in points. Tua Tagovailoa leads the NFL in passing yards and should be able to exploit a defense that allowed just 299 passing yards and two touchdowns to Washington’s Sam Howell. The prediction is that Miami (-7) covers well over 50% of the time, and the model also says that Under (47) is correct in more than 50% of simulations. See which other teams to choose here.
