For the gambler in you, Week 3

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Each Saturday, we’ll take the best -- and most clever -- odds collected by bodog.com for the upcoming week and give our take. This is important stuff, perhaps the most important post you’ll read all week. Because if you can’t lose money while watching a game in which you have absolutely no effect, what’s the point of watching sports at all?

How many teams that are currently 0-2 will make the playoffs this season (Note: The last two years 17 teams have started out the season 0-2 and none of them made the playoffs)?

0 4/7

1 or more 7/5    

Right now, there are seven teams that are winless this season, and among them, the Dolphins will turn out to be the best. But with the Patriots and Jets -- and Bills (!) -- in that division, they’ve got no chance at the postseason. However, you also have to remember that two of those squads -- the Rams and Seahawks -- reside in the NFC West and the rest of the division is 1-1. I still think St. Louis will rally to win the division and take that playoff spot. So, I’d take “1 or more."

Which team will be the last remaining undefeated team in the 2011 regular season?

New England Patriots 5/4

Green Bay Packers 9/2  
    
Washington Redskins 5/1   
   
Detroit Lions 6/1    
  
New York Jets 6/1    
  
Houston Texans 8/1  
    
Buffalo Bills 16/1    

Count the Bills out. They’ll lose to New England on Sunday. The Patriots won’t lose until Oct. 30 at Pittsburgh (and that’s if they get by the Jets beforehand). The Packers will last a week longer than that when they have to travel to the Chargers. So, go with Green Bay at some pretty decent odds.

Regular season win total -- Kansas City Chiefs  
 
Over 4½ (-115)

Under 4½ (-115)

I see three wins -- vs. the Vikings, Colts and Broncos at home. And that’s all I see.

Blaine Gabbert -- total TD passes Week 3 (Must start)

Over ½  (-200)

Under ½ (+160)

Blaine Gabbert -- total interceptions Week 3 (Must start)

Over ½  (-200)

Under ½ (+160)

On the first bet, Gabbert will go over. On the second bet, Gabbert could go way over. But he won’t beat Cam Newton and the Panthers. Not when Newton will throw for more than 600 yards this week
