The 2022 NFL schedule has produced shocking results, with expected Super Bowl contenders like the Bengals and Titans limping to 0-2 starts. However, the Bengals are favored by 4.5 points on the road against the Jets in the NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Titans are 2.5-point underdogs. Should you trust any of those teams to bounce back as you make your Week 3 NFL office pool picks?

One of the top Week 3 NFL predictions from the model: The Chicago Bears (-2.5) earn a win at home against the Houston Texans. After beating the 49ers on a rain-soaked Soldier Field in Week 1, the Bears took a 27-10 loss at the hands of the Packers on Sunday Night Football in Week 2, but they showed some signs of life in the loss to their archrivals.
The Bears ran for 180 yards in the loss to Green Bay and engineered two drives of over 70 yards, including a 14-play, 89-yard effort that came up inches short as the Bears looked to make it a one-score game in the fourth quarter. Now, the Bears will take on a Texans defense that has allowed 327 yards on the ground over the first two weeks of the season. The model is predicting that Chicago rushes for nearly 140 yards on average, a major catalyst in the Bears winning in over 60 percent of simulations.'See the rest of the model's Week 3 NFL pool picks here.
