NFL betting tips: Cowboys to crush Dolphins in 12/1 four-fold

The new season is under way and we've had a successful start with our NFL betting tips so far.

Three of our four NFL betting predictions have paid out on both weekends and we would have made a healthy profit if backing them all to level stakes, so hopefully we can build on that success on Sunday and enjoy a clean sweep.

Once again we have selected four tips from Sunday's Week 3 matches in our NFL betting preview which can be combined in a four-fold acca at odds of just over 12/1.

NFL Bet Predictions: Week 3

Cincinnati Bengals @ Buffalo Bills (Sun, 18:00)

The Buffalo Bills head into their first home game of the season in confident mood after starting the new campaign with two road wins, both in New York.

They edged out the Jets 17-16 in Week 1 and then returned to the MetLife Stadium to beat the Giants 28-14, when quarterback Josh Allen joined running backs Frank Gore and Devin Singletary in running for a touchdown.

In contrast, the Bengals are still waiting for their first victory and are coming off a 41-17 defeat at home to the San Francisco 49ers last week.

Their defensive display in that game was disappointing and Buffalo are fancied to win by at least a touchdown as the first of our NFL betting tips.

Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys (Sun, 18:00)

There are two huge mismatches in Week 3 according to the NFL betting odds, with the Dolphins 10/1 to cause an upset in Dallas while the New York Jets are 12/1 to beat the New England Patriots.

Miami look set to be the whipping boys of the NFL this season and have lost their opening two matches by an aggregate score of 102-10. They conceded 42 points in the first half alone during a 59-10 defeat by the Baltimore Ravens and failed to lay a glove on the New England Patriots in last week's 43-0 loss.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, look strong with new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore calling the shots and have averaged 33 points per game so far. They are being talked about as genuine contenders in terms of Super Bowl betting tips and have been cut to 12/1 to go all the way this season.

Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes against the Washington Redskins last week, Ezekiel Elliott ran for 111 yards and a score while tight end Jason Witten scored for the second game in succession since coming out of retirement.

This is a spread rarely seen in NFL betting but we're still keen to back the Cowboys to win by 22 points or more.

Atlanta Falcons @ Indianapolis Colts (Sun, 18:00)

Both of these teams began the season with a defeat but got their first win on the board last weekend and will be looking to build on that success.

The Atlanta Falcons went down 28-12 at the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 but bounced back to beat the visiting Philadelphia Eagles 24-20 last week, when Julio Jones ran 54 yards to touch down with 2:10 minutes remaining.

It was also a narrow victory for the Colts as TY Hilton's touchdown clinched a 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans in response to their overtime defeat at the LA Chargers on the opening weekend.

The Falcons are the better of these two teams and are 22/1 in the NFL Super Bowl odds, compared to 50/1 for the Colts, yet they go to Indianapolis as the underdogs.

They have struggled on their travels at times but we're not convinced home advantage will be enough for the Colts and the Falcons appeal with 2.5 points on the spread as the third of our NFL predictions for Week 3.

Los Angeles Rams @ Cleveland Browns (Mon, 01:20)

The Browns enjoyed their first win on Monday night when Odell Beckham Jr helped them to a 23-3 victory against the New York Jets in New Jersey.

Beckham Jr made the most of his first time back at MetLife Stadium - where he spent five seasons with the New York Giants - with six receptions and he ran for 161 yards, with 89 of those coming in a scything career-longest run that ended with a touchdown.

There was nothing in that performance that will have overly worried the Rams though and a 43-13 defeat at home to the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 means we're not in a hurry to back the Browns again.

They are up against a much better offense this week and the Rams have started with back-to-back wins, with Jared Goff passing for 283 yards as they thrashed the visiting New Orleans Saints 27-9 last week.

The Rams look a solid choice as the last of our NFL bet predictions for Week 3 and are fancied to cover three points on the spread.
