The Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit the Los Angeles Rams for one of Week 3's top NFL matchups, while Chicago Bears rookie Justin Fields will make his first start on the road against the Cleveland Browns. Division matchups also are on tap with the AFC South's Indianapolis Colts visiting the Tennessee Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC North battle. With 14 games on Sunday's slate, there are hundreds of NFL prop bets to choose from.
Caesars Sportsbook lists the Over-Under on Bucs quarterback Tom Brady's yardage total at 308.5 (-115), while Rams counterpart Matthew Stafford's is 309.5 (-115). Who should you back with your NFL props? Caesars lists the Over-Under on passing yards for Fields at 207.5 (Over -120, Under -110) among its many other NFL player props. Before you lock in any 2021 Week 3 NFL prop picks of your own, you need to check out the top NFL picks and predictions from SportsLine's NFL props expert Alex Selesnick.
Over the past two seasons, Selesnick (aka PropStarz) is up nearly 118 units on NFL props and futures plays. For a $100 bettor, that's almost a $12,000 return. PropStarz specializes in NFL and NBA prop betting, where he implements a combination of research, statistical analysis and mathematical modeling. His background playing competitive poker, Scrabble and backgammon helped form the foundation of his sports betting approach.
Through two weeks, PropStarz is a stunning 8-2 on his picks for SportsLine, and he was spot-on when he said Carolina Panthers receiver D.J. Moore would go Over 5.5 receptions (-130) against the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. The expert predicted to SportsLine that Sam Darnold would "continue to pepper the fourth-year wideout with targets" against a weakened Saints secondary.
The result? Darnold threw Moore's way 11 times -- five more targets than any teammate -- and the receiver caught eight of them for 79 yards and a score. He cashed this bet going away, and PropStarz saw it coming.
Now, after poring over scores of available Week 3 NFL prop bets, PropStarz has found five more football picks he loves. He's only sharing his top Week 3 NFL prop bet picks at SportsLine.
Top 2021 Week 3 NFL prop picks
One Week 3 NFL prop bet PropStarz is backing: Rams receiver Robert Woods will go over 0.5 rushing yards against Tampa Bay's elite run defense. The Rams' backfield is banged up, and coach Sean McVay will need to find creative ways to run on Tampa Bay's elite front. Its rushing defense is second in the NFL, allowing just 57.5 yards per game, after leading the league last year. Top Rams running back Darrell Henderson (123 yards) has a rib injury and likely won't play.
Add in the loss of Cam Akers (torn ACL), and that leaves Sony Michel (48 yards) as the only healthy option. Woods is the only other L.A. player with a rushing yard (three carries for 13) and has 60 rushes over the past three seasons. He averages almost seven yards per carry, so he likely will need just one attempt. "I believe Rams coach Sean McVay will continue leaning on wide receiver end-around plays, and Woods is the primary beneficiary," PropStarz told SportsLine.
