Week 3 of the NFL season is here!

Everyone here at BetSided has given you all of our picks, prop bets, and everything else you could need to bet on this week's slate.

But now, it's time to hear who YOU, the BetSided community, is backing to win this week.

I asked people on Twitter for their best bets, so let's take a look at who their responses.

Chiefs vs. Colts Pick

I'm going to agree with Mr. Ham Swaggerty on this one. I wrote about how this is a great buy low opportunity on the Indianapolis Colts. They outplayed the Texans in Week 1, despite ending in a tie, and they played what will end up being their worst game of the season in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

I'm not sure if Colts cover, but I'll take them to cover the spread as underdogs.

Packers vs. Buccaneers Pick

Interesting play! Let's not forget that Buccaneers have failed to score a touchdown in the first half yet this season. Does their offense get rolling in Week 3?

NFL Week 3 Best Underdog Pick

Underdogs have covered at a higher rate so far this season, going 18-13-1 against the spread. Does the trend continue in Week 3? Blind Tailer Picks seems to think so.

Bengals vs. Jets Pick

The Bengals have been one of the biggest disappointments throughout the first two weeks of the NFL season. Joe Burrow getting sacked 13 times in two games certainly doesn't help. I'm on the Bengals in this one, but I could see the Jets getting the better of them.

Eagles vs. Commanders Pick

I LOVE a good "fade the hot team upset pick", and that's exactly what Jordy is giving us. Respect.

We have another brave soul backing the Commanders! Because that's their name now, Bill. They're the Commanders.

Bills vs. Dolphins Pick

I mentioned earlier how I wrote that the Colts are a good buy low team. I also wrote the Dolphins as a great sell high team. I agree Kevin, Dolphins aren't as good as the comeback would indicate. For example, they're allowing the most yards per pass attempt in the NFL right now.

Saints vs. Panthers Pick

Shoutout to Benny for giving my podcast a shoutout. Yes, I am on the Panthers to win outright, and you can listen to my full breakdown on this week's episode of the Bacon Bets Podcast here.

49ers vs. Broncos Pick (Sunday Night Football)

I was one of the lucky ones who managed to hop on the 49ers as underdogs when the lines first released on Sunday. But yes, I like San Francisco even more with Jimmy G at QB.

NFL Week 3 Parlay Pick

Uh oh. I agree with every single one of those picks. I don't know if that's a good sign or not...

Cowboys vs. Giants Pick (Monday Night Football)

I don't know about that! Cooper Rush has actually been solid when he's played so far in his career. 60% completion percentage. Four touchdowns to only one interception. He's 2-0 when he starts. Rush might not be as bad as we all assume he is....

Best NFL Tweet of the Week Pick
