2017 NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) - Week 3

Since we began, all of our handicappers have made exactly three picks each week. No more, no less. By limiting our picks to three per week, the goal was to narrow down our picks to only those we thought were quality plays.

Starting in 2014, we have switched to a new format allowing each handicapper to make between two to five picks versus the spread each week. In addition, we will use units to better designate each handicapper's confidence in their picks ranging from one to five units.

For tracking purposes, we have tracked (and will track) both wins/losses and units (+/-) against the spread throughout the season.

Cumulative results since 2011: Week 3 lines are from Sportsbook.ag:

Jaguars +3.5 over Ravens (3 Units)

The London games have historically been pretty sloppy. The time change clearly plays a role, and is a big reason why I like the Jags with the points here. I expect a low-scoring game, and I'll ride with the Jags defense against Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense.
