Lorenzo’s Lock is a weekly series with our partner Gannett Media and part of Bet For the Win. It includes 3 picks for the upcoming NFL weekend.
NFL week 3 is here and so is Lorenzo with his picks, brought to you by Tipico Sportsbook! After an entertaining Week 2, Lorenzo is back to deliver his locks of the week.
FIREPOWER OFFENSE ALERT
To kick things off, Lorenzo is looking at a matchup that has the unquestioned best team in the league right now. The Bills are immaculate and have no apparent weaknesses on offense. They are lighting up teams for 36 points per game, which is the most in the NFL. Don’t sleep on the 2-0 Dolphins though, with the elite speed combo of Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. The Dolphins showed they are capable of scoring in a shootout last week against Baltimore and have the potential for a serious playoff run. Both the Dolphins and the Bills have been great against the spread, but Lorenzo has opted to avoid that play and bet on the Over Total Points.
Lorenzo is locking in Over 52.5 Total Points.
WELCOME BACK JIMMY G!
Moving on to a line that Lorenzo absolutely loves between Denver and San Francisco. The Broncos are off to a very cold start, and head coach Nathaniel Hackett is already on the hot seat, with questionable play calling to begin the year. Russell Wilson isn’t performing at the top of his game and the Broncos are 0-6 in red zone conversions to start the season. With Trey Lance out with season ending injury, it’s Jimmy Garappolo’s time to shine (also the highest paid backup quarterback in the NFL). San Francisco is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven, while the Broncos are 1-5 against the spread in their last six. Deebo Samuel will step up and lead Denver to a victory.
Lorenzo is locking in the 49ers -1.5
A BATTLE AT THE MEADLOWLANDS
Finally, the NFC East rivalry showdown between the Giants and the Cowboys. New York has had a surprisingly amazing start so far, looking to jump out to a 3-0 record and claim first place in the division. New York looks far more competitive under hew head coach Brian Daboll. Lorenzo is still skeptical and isn't sold on Daniel Jones at quarterback just yet, especially going against the Micah Parsons led defense. Danny Dimes will be tested early. The Cowboys are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 against the Giants and have dominated the matchups in recent years. With Dak Prescott out for Dallas, New York has a chance to capitalize and make problems for their backup quarterback. Ultimately, Lorenzo thinks history will repeat its self in this one, taking the Cowboys to win and cover.
Lorenzo is locking in DAL +2.5 vs NYG
