Through the first two weeks of the 2022 NFL schedule, underdogs have already managed 11 straight-up victories, which has caused chaos for anyone making NFL survivor pool picks. The Bengals have gone down twice as seven-point favorites, and anybody who has attempted to use the defending AFC champions in their NFL knockout pool picks has already fallen. However, the Bengals are once again one of the biggest favorites in this week's NFL odds at Caesars Sportsbook, as they're laying five points to the Jets on the road. Picking winners is the name of the game, but an effective NFL survivor pool strategy also saves elite teams for the later portion of the season. 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 CBS 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.

Top Week 3 NFL survivor pool predictions 

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. The Giants have been far from dominant, but it's still easy to see why fans are extremely excited for their squad to be two games over .500 for the first time since 2016.

Now, they get a matchup against a Cowboys squad that is without Dak Prescott (thumb). However, even without Prescott, the Cowboys were able to use pressure to earn a win over the Bengals last week as seven-point underdogs. The Giants have allowed eight sacks on the season and Micah Parsons figures to be a major problem for New York after he's racked up four sacks in the first two weeks. The model predicts that Cowboys rack up three sacks and it's not buying into the Giants' hype for its Week 3 NFL survivor pool picks. See which team to pick here.
