2016 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:

2016: 2-4-1 (33.3%), -7 units

2011: 27-21-3 (56.3%)

Jaguars +1 over Ravens (3 Units)

I like the Jags to get in the win column this week and beat the overrated Ravens at home. The Ravens will not have an answer for Allen Robinson and the Jags passing attack. Jags win, 30-17.

Buccaneers -4 over Rams (3 Units)

This game "features" the past two No. 1 overall picks in the NFL Draft: Jameis Winston (2015) and Jared Goff (2016). Of course, Goff is holding a clipboard for Case Keenum, who has completed 53.8 percent of his pass attempts at 5.7 ...

Giants -3 over Redskins (4 Units)

The Giants are certainly one of the league's most-improved teams, and as well as they have played, you can certainly state the opposite for Washington as they have been one of the league's most disappointing teams. For all the ...
