Here’s a tip for gamblers for the upcoming NFL season, stay away from the Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams. There will be 13 games played between Thursday and Saturday, and the Skins and Rams are the only two home underdogs.

The totals for the 13 games are again low, just as they were for the first week, with no game this weekend having a total of over 40.

Actually, 38 is the highest total of the week, and that’s not even that high considering the games that hold that total. One is the Rams, who host San Diego. The other is New Orleans at Cincinnati. Those games, if played in the regular season would most likely have totals up in the high 40’s.

The fact that 11 of the 13 games have home favorites tell you that odds makers had to favor someone in the game, so they chose the home teams. Take your chances on the dogs this weekend because some of them have to win. Money line plays might be the way to go, at least you can maximize your winnings if the dog wins outright.

Notable eye raisers for this weekend are Green Bay giving a point to Seattle, and Cleveland giving 2.5 to Detroit.

Week 3 will be as close to a regular season game as can be expected, as most starters will play at least a half, so look for betting lines to be a bit more accurate than in week 2.
