NFL odds: Examining early prop bets for Week 3
The Denver Broncos are 12-2 SU and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games on the road. Denver will face one of the NFL's toughest road tests this Sunday visiting the Seattle Seahawks in a rematch of last year's Super Bowl.
The Denver vs. Seattle matchup has a handful of prop bets surrounding it as fans and bettors are eagerly awaiting this early-season Super Bowl rematch. Many of those props are focused on which quarterback will perform better: Peyton Manning or Russell Wilson.
Peyton Manning is a -200 favorite to record more touchdown passes than Russell Wilson (+160) on Sunday, but is also the favorite to throw more interceptions at -150 over Wilson (+120) according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Bettors that want to bet on which quarterback will pass for more yards can take Peyton Manning at -50.5 yards or Russell Wilson at +50.5.
In last year's Super Bowl, Russell Wilson passed for 206 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions while Peyton Manning had 280 passing yards, one touchdown pass and two interceptions.
One Week 3 prop bet available asks whether or not the Seahawks will allow 30 or more points in a game again this regular season after doing so last week against San Diego. “Yes” is favored at -140 over “No” at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Seattle allowed 30 points or more only once in 2013 and in no games in '12.
Another Week 3 special asks “How many winless teams will there be after Week 3?” The line is set at 3.5 with seven teams entering Week 3 at 0-2 SU. Indianapolis or Jacksonville will get its first win on Sunday when the Jaguars host the Colts.
New Orleans is a big favorite at -10 at home to get its first win of the season against Minnesota, while Tampa Bay, New York, Oakland and Kansas City are all underdogs. With the Raiders going off at +14 on the road against New England, bettors that take the OVER 3.5 will likely need two upsets from Tampa Bay, Kansas City or New York to cash this ticket.
