Week 3: NFL picks with caddie Joe Skovron
It’s already been a crazy week in the NFL and there’s only been one game!
For the first time in over 600 days, the Cleveland Browns won a game! They came back from a 14-0 deficit to rally back against the New York Jets on Thursday night where we were treated to the NFL debut of quarterback Baker Mayfield after a Tyrod Taylor injury.
But, there’s still plenty of great games left on the docket.

Rickie Fowler’s caddie, Joe Skovron, is a massive fan of the NFL.
Here, he weighs in with his picks for the most compelling Week 3 match ups…
Cincinnati at Carolina
Point spread: Carolina -3
Skovron’s Pick: Carolina
Why?: I think this is a toss-up with this spread, but the possibility of no Joe Mixon really hurts the balance of that Bengals offense. I’ll go with Carolina.
New Orleans at Atlanta
Point spread: Atlanta -3
Skovron’s Pick: New Orleans
Why?: Atlanta has injuries mounting up and the Saints were picked by a lot of people to be Super Bowl contenders. I’ll take Drew Brees with the points at home.
San Francisco at Kansas City
Point Spread: Kansas City -6.5
Skovron’s Pick: San Fran
Why?: KC looks unstoppable right now and Arrowhead is a huge home-field advantage. This line actually seems too small to me, which usually means Vegas knows something. I’m going against the grain and my brain and taking the 49ers.
LA Chargers at LA Rams
Point Spread: LA Rams -7
Skovron’s Pick: Chargers
Why?: No Bosa makes this one tough and the Rams D is like an all-star team, but I’m a die-hard Bolts fan, so I’m not picking against my Bolts if this isn’t for any money!
Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay
Point Spread: Pittsburgh -1
Skovron’s Pick: Pittsburgh
Why?: On the road, no defense, everyone taking about Tomlin losing the locker room, and Fitzmagic rolling in Tampa. This sounds like a Pitt bet to me. Statement game in front of the whole country. Steelers get it done.
