The Denver Broncos were hoping to take a major step forward offensively this season after acquiring veteran quarterback Russell Wilson from Seattle. That has not been the case through the first two weeks of the campaign, as the Broncos have scored just 16 points in each game. They have a tough matchup against San Francisco on Sunday night during the Week 3 NFL schedule, with the game lined at a pick’em in the latest Week 3 NFL odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Should you avoid that game with your Week 3 NFL office pool picks?

Top Week 3 NFL office pool predictions
One of the top Week 3 NFL predictions from the model: The Los Angeles Chargers (-7) comfortably beat the Jacksonville Jaguars. Los Angeles is as battle-tested as any team through the first two weeks of the season, as it had divisional games against the Raiders and Chiefs. The Chargers picked up a 24-19 win over Las Vegas before staying within the spread in a 27-24 loss to Kansas City.
They are on extra rest and have had additional time to prepare for this game after playing last Thursday, giving them an edge over the Jaguars. This is a letdown spot for Jacksonville, which is coming off a decisive 24-0 win over Indianapolis in Week 2. The Jaguars have only picked up one win in their last nine games against the Chargers, one reason why the model has Los Angeles winning almost 70% of the time.
