- The Tennessee Titans opened as 3-point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts and are now listed as 5-point favorites.
- The Las Vegas Raiders odds were favored by 1-point over the Miami Dolphins and are now 4-point favorites.
LAS VEGAS – As soon as Week 2 of the NFL season came to an end, the betting lines for Week 3 were posted and both the Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders were favored to win their matchups.
The Tennessee Titans have an AFC South matchup against the Indianapolis Colts while the Las Vegas Raiders have a date with the Miami Dolphins. There have been developments in both matchups that have caused legal sports betting sites to shift the lines ahead of the games.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Tennessee Titans opened up as 3-point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3 and have since seen their NFL odds shift in their favor down to a 5-point spread.
This shift should come at no surprise as the Colts could be without their starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, as he rolled both of his ankles in Week 2 and has been trending downwards since.
If Wentz were to miss this game, those that took the odds early on when they opened at 3-points in favor of Tennessee would be in line for a nice payout as the Colts offense is not going to run as efficiently.
Las Vegas Raiders Vs. Miami Dolphins
Looking at the Las Vegas Raiders game against the Dolphins, Vegas opened the week as just a 1-point favorite and saw that shift dramatically to 4 points. This came with the news that Miami’s starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, will miss this game.
The Raiders opened up favorites behind the spectacular play of Derek Carr who has led them to a 2-0 start on the season.
