NFL Football Picks
We could see a track meet Sunday! Both teams are firing on all cyclinders! The general betting public is stumped here as action is coming in evenly on both sides. Oddsmakers are expecting a close game as well, so the Ravens look to be a value play getting almost a touchdown at most betting shops.
Who would have thunk the Steelers would be 0-2 and the Niners 2-0 at this point in the season? The difference between a good handicapper and a bad handicapper is the ability to decipher what should happen vs. what can happen. At this point, it’s starting to look like the San Francisco 49ers have somehow gotten good!
The biggest NFL point spread in over 30 years goes off Sunday when the Jets visit Foxboro to play the Patriots. It appears that the J-E-T-S season is over before it even starts, as injuries to Sam Darnold and other key players have crippled the team’s ability to move the ball. Meanwhile, the Pat have been ROLLIN’!
An interesting match-up of two teams that are 1-1 straight-up but could easily be 2-0 or 0-2. That’s how close their first two games were. The Texans lost their first on a last second field goal to the saints and were a failed two-point convert away from losing last week to the Jags. For the Chargers it’s all about field goals. The Colts missing three in Week 1 and the Bolts missing two in Week 2.
Detroit Lions (1-0-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1 SU, 0-2 ATS) When: Sunday, September 22nd, 2019 – 1:00 PM ET Where: Lincoln Financial Field – Philadelphia, PA TV: FOX Point Spread: DET +7 / PHI -7 (Bet365) Total: 43.5 Power Ratings: Philadelphia -8...
The Raiders showed great promise in Week 1 with a big win over the Broncos. They started out like gangbusters vs. KC as well, until getting absolutely shellacked. The Vikings will unquestionably be the best defense they’ve faced. This could be a bug-meets-windshield affair.
The Bengals looked impressive in their opener battling the Seahawks to the end in a narrow 21-20 loss on the road. In Week 2 it was completely different story getting blasted by the 41-17 on their home field by the 49ers. The Bills are 2-0 after road wins over the Jets and Giants setting them up as an overlay against the Bengals. Read on to get Keith Frank’s betting opinion and predicted point spread winner.
The “Daniel Jones Era” kicks off in Week 3 as the G-Men visit Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Giants have to be better with Eli gone. Don’t they? Bettors don’t think so as this line rose from TB -5 to -6.5!
The Seahawks have shown that their defense can be exploited through the air and the Saints certainly have the weapons. The big question is with QB Drew Brees out and Teddy Bridgewater at the helm can they exploit them? Read on to get Jay’s prediction against the spread.
Last season in Jacksonville it was a defensive battle with the Titans getting the narrow 9-6 win as a big 10-point dog. This time around NFL football handicapper Jay Horne thinks that it will all come down to how the Tennessee offense performs. Get all his angles and his free pick.
Sean Payton brings his Saints to the City of Angels for one of the marquee match-ups of week 2. This game will be a rematch of the NFC Championship game that saw the Rams squeak into the Super Bowl with the aid of a “non-pass interference” call late in the 4th quarter. Read on to get my prediction.
The Colts played the Chargers tough last week. The Titans went into Cleveland and upset the Browns. At first glance, this Week 2 game looks like it will be a competitive game, however, Bob thinks one of these teams cover the spread by double digits!
The Eagles and Falcons both started off slow in week 1. Both looked much better in their second halves. This game is projected to be a close one but one team has a few glaring injuries that will likely be the difference.
The Chiefs have lost one of their their top WRs and returner Tyreek Hill, but this team is loaded with WR Sammy Watkins appearing to be back to top form and TE Travis Kelce is always dangerous. The Raiders looked efficient on offense without the locker room disrupter Antonio Brown but will be playing on a short week. NFL handicapper Bob weighs out these factors and more to come up with his point spread play.
Two undefeated NFC North rivals meet at Lambeau Field on Sunday. The Pack are more rested after kicking off the season with a 10-3 win in Chicago, but the Vikings looked more impressive holding a good Falcons offense to a meagre 12 points in 28-12 victory. The linesmaker has Green Bay as a three-point favorite with a total line of 44 points. Read on to see which side of the point spread Ted’s money is landing on.
After last week’s results this game becomes more interesting. Has the Ravens improved that much on offense with Lamar Jackson more seasoned and the addition of Mark Ingram at RB? Are the Cards going to be hard pressed to compete like they were in the first three quarters of Week 1 or are they the team that gave the Lions a big scare with a solid rally in the 4th? Get Loot’s take on how this will play out with his Week 2 pick.
