Top NFL football knockout, survivor pool picks, strategy, advice for Week 3, 2022: Fade the Giants

There have been many surprises early in the 2022 NFL schedule that have already ruined plenty of NFL survivor pool picks. The Titans and Bengals, the AFC's No. 1 seed and the conference's Super Bowl representative last year, are both 0-2, as are the Las Vegas Raiders. Meanwhile, the Giants and Dolphins are both undefeated and have rewarded anyone who used them in their NFL knockout pool picks. This week, Bills vs. Dolphins takes place at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, and even with Miami's hot start, many will jump on the Buffalo juggernaut with their Week 3 NFL football pool picks. Is now the best time to utilize the Bills when the jury is still out on how strong Miami really is? Before finalizing any Week 3 NFL survivor picks, see which team the red-hot SportsLine Projection Model just went all-in on.

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 139-102 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of AP Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, it has turned its attention to the latest Week 3 NFL odds from Caesars and locked in its Week 3 survivor pool pick.'You can only see who the model is backing this week at SportsLine.

In Week 3 of the 2022 NFL season, we can tell you the model is shying away from the New York Giants (2-0), even though they are home favorites over the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) on Monday Night Football. Dallas quarterback Cooper Rush has been an underdog in both of his career starts, and not only has he covered in each, but he's also won both outright. The Cowboys are 9-1 versus the Giants over their last 10 meetings.

Dallas' defense has stepped up in this NFC East rivalry as the Cowboys have allowed one or fewer touchdowns in half of the last 10 meetings. New York's offense isn't off to a blistering start this year and ranks 15th in points and 20th in yards. Despite having the third-fewest pass attempts, the Giants have allowed the third-most sacks, which has to have the NFL's leading sack artist, Micah Parsons, licking his chops. The model sees the Giants as a risky play for Week 3 NFL survivor picks, so it advises to save New York for another week.'See which team to pick here.

Instead, the model is backing a shocking team that is well-positioned to deliver a win in Week 3. The time to pick this team is now, and'you can only see the play over at SportsLine.
