Top Week 3 NFL predictions
One of the model’s strongest Week 3 NFL picks is that the Chiefs (-12.5) cover against the Bears in almost 60% of simulations. The Bears suffered a 27-17 defeat against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, marking their 10th consecutive loss dating back to last season. Bears quarterback Justin Fields completed just 16 of 29 passes for 211 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He added a rushing touchdown, but the offense failed to find any rhythm against Tampa Bay.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs recorded their first win of the season, a 17-9 victory on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns, while the defense wreaked havoc. Chris Jones and George Karlaftis both recorded 1.5 sacks and lead a unit that’s giving up just 15 points per game this season, the third-best mark in the NFL. SportsLine’s model projects Kansas City’s defense will limit Chicago’s offense to 19 points on Sunday, helping the Chiefs cover the spread in well over 50% of simulations.

Another one of its Week 3 NFL predictions: The Dolphins (-6.5) cover the spread at home versus the Broncos. Miami features the most explosive offense in the NFL, averaging 462.5 yards per game. The Dolphins are averaging 355.0 passing yards per game, which also ranks first in the league.
Miami’s rushing attack also proved to be effective in the 24-17 win over the Patriots last Sunday. Running back Raheem Mostert recorded 18 carries for 121 yards and two scores against the Patriots. Miami’s ground game will now look to dissect a Broncos defense that gave up over 120 rushing yards and two rushing scores to the Commanders last week. According to the model, the Dolphins will rack up more than 80 yards on the ground, while Tua Tagovailoa throws for 298 yards, helping Miami cover the spread well over 50% of the time.
