NFL football pool, pick'em, confidence picks for Week 3, 2019: Back the Los Angeles Chargers

Winning your NFL office pool is all about nailing the tough calls. In the Week 3 NFL schedule, there are a slew of games in which the spread is a field goal or less, resulting in potentially difficult NFL football pool picks. They include the 1-1 Falcons visiting the 1-1 Colts, the winless Panthers visiting the winless Cardinals, and the 1-1 Texans visiting the 1-1 Chargers. Making the right calls on these NFL confidence pool picks could be the difference between winning the week or finishing towards the bottom. They also will be pivotal in terms of season-long standings. Given the stakes, you'll want to see the latest NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model before submitting your own Week 3 NFL office pool picks.

This model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception. It has absolutely nailed its recent top-rated NFL picks, entering Week 3 of the 2019 NFL season on a strong 17-10 run that dates back to last season. It's also on a 79-53 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Additionally, it nailed the Seahawks (+4) covering against the Steelers and the Patriots (-18) covering a massive spread against the Dolphins with room to spare in Week 2. 

The model ranked inside the top 10 on NFLPickWatch for the third straight year on straight-up NFL picks and beat over 96 percent of CBS Sports office pool players last season. Anyone who has followed it is way up. 

Now, the model has simulated the entire Week 3 schedule 10,000 times and generated its optimal NFL football pool picks. We can tell you the model is high on the Chargers, who are winning outright in 60 percent of simulations. L.A. will attempt to rebound after squandering a golden opportunity in Detroit to go 2-0 and now faces a Texans team that just squeaked by Jacksonville at home. In that 13-10 loss at Detroit, the Chargers had two touchdowns called back by penalties. 

L.A. running back Austin Ekeler has a mouthwatering matchup against Houston and will try to atone for a goal line fumble last week. In fact, the Texans give up an NFL-worst 6.0 yards per carry and let Saints running backs Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray average over seven yards per tote two weeks ago.

The model also has made the call on Falcons vs. Colts, Panthers vs. Cardinals, Rams vs. Browns and every other NFL Week 3 game. In fact, the model says a team the public is all over goes down hard. You can only see all of its NFL pool picks at SportsLine. 

So who should you pick in every Week 3 NFL game? And which trendy team goes down hard? Visit SportsLine now to get optimal NFL office pool picks, all from the advanced computer model that beat over 96 percent of CBS Sports office pool players last year.
