NFL odds Week 3: Ride with the Jaguars and Steelers, other best bets

By Geoff Schwartz
FOX Sports NFL Analyst

Another week is in the book, which means it’s another chance for me to talk about my favorite pastime, the old gridiron. 

Now that we are officially in Autumn and the leaves are beginning to fall, that’s the first sign that the NFL season is kicking into gear and the drunk deliriousness of simply having football back no longer suffices. And if you’re champing at the bit to get some wagers in like me, let’s get right into it. 

Here are my best bets for Week 3 of the 2022 NFL season, with odds courtesy of FOX Bet.

Steelers @ Browns (8:20 p.m. ET Thursday, Amazon Prime)

This is a hold your nose and wager on a trustworthy coach spot because Pittsburgh’s offense is putrid. Check out these ranks: 30th in yards per play, 28th in passing and 19th in red zone scoring. It’s hard to write about anything they do well at the moment. The offensive design is boring, uncreative and predictable.  

On top of that, the Steelers are on a short week. I do not expect their offense to get much going.   

However, the Browns aren’t trustworthy to cover four points at the moment. Yes, they run the ball well, but they are facing a Steelers defense that can stuff the run.   

Granted, the loss of T.J. Watt has hurt the Steelers’ rushing defense, especially the pass rush. The lack of pressure should give Jacoby Brissett time to pass, but do you trust him to pass the ball well against this Steelers defense? I do not. 

The only way I feel comfortable in this matchup is by wagering on what I do know.  

First, Cleveland struggles in division games. 

Second, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin always has his teams ready for this situation. Overall, Tomlin’s Steelers are 67% against the spread as an underdog and 70% against the spread as an underdog off a straight-up loss. His ability to motivate as an underdog is unparalleled.  

If you’re still not comfortable with the four points, you can put the Steelers in a teaser with another team this weekend…
