Week three of the NFL season is already upon us, and it is do or die for some of the 0-2 teams around the league that are seriously putting themselves behind the 8-ball for a run into playing into January and maybe even February.
In checking out the sportsbook as to the lines, there’s one 0-2 team that seems to be getting a lot of love as a road favorite this weekend, that being the San Francisco 49ers.
The Niners are three points favorites as they head to Kansas City to play a 2-0 Chiefs team. Many feel that the Chiefs are not as good as their record, despite being unbeaten in ugly but effective wins over the Chargers and Browns.
Another battle of two 0-2 teams that you need to keep an eye on is the game in Minnesota between the Vikings and Lions. Detroit could easily be 2-0 after losing to the Bears and Eagles in close games, while the Vikings looked bad in their four-point loss to the Dolphins last weekend.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t have much of an impact on the line, as Minnesota is giving the Lions a huge spread – 11 points. Anytime a spread is over 10 in NFL football betting, it’s a good bet the boys that make the odds think it will be a blowout.
So keep you eyes on these and other lines this weekend, as those 0-2 teams fight for their lives in trying to stay out of the dreaded 0-3 hole.
