NFL Football Picks
The Pats looked like they may be unbeatable again and the Dolphins looked they may have trouble beating a top college team. But as seasoned bettors know you can’t base your analysis on a short sample size and especially the opening week of a season. So the question is New England that good and are the Dolphins that bad? Read on to see how Frank’s is betting this game.
The Bengals host the 49ers in Week 2 NFL betting action. Cincinnati dropped their opener 21-20 to Seattle in a game that they out-yarded the Seahawks 429 to 233. The 49ers defense scored two TDs as they knocked off the Bucs on the road. Jay thinks this game is too tough to call on the point spread but value can be found on the total line.
The Bills play at MetLife Stadium for the second consecutive week when they take on the Giants after getting a late come from behind win over the Jets in Week 1. The Giants roll into this game off an embarrassing 35-17 loss in Dallas and will hope for a turn around on their home filed. Franks digs into the match-up battles and gives out his opinion on where your money should land.
The Chicago Bears will pay a week two visit to Denver’s Mile High Stadium to take on former Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio’s Denver Broncos. These two teams were at the top of the Most Disappointing list for week 1. The Bears look to rebound from a putrid opening night performance while Denver will try to get past the egg they laid in Oakland late on Monday Night.
It’s difficult to not put too much weight into the Week 1 results, but both these clubs have some issues. Sure, Buffalo has a good defense, but the Jets 223 yards of offense is not going to lead to many victories in the NFL. The Browns offense racked up an acceptable 346 yards, but Mayfield had three INTs and was sacked five times. Get our prognosticator’s analysis and free pick.
Houston looked mighty good in giving the Saints a scare on Monday night in New Orleans. They travel home to take on their AFC South division foe Jacksonville. The spread is a large 8.5 points which is usually a go against in divisional games, but with a rookie making his first NFL start it may be too low. Check out which side of the line Loot is playing.
The Lions amassed 477 yards of offense in Week 1 but faded late to leave Arizona with a 27-27 tie. The Chargers gained 435 yards themselves but their defense was exploited on the ground allowing 203 yards on 33 carries. The NFL board lists the visiting Chargers as a -2.5 favorite over the host Lions. Read on to get our handicapper’s forecasted point spread winner.
Early wagering action has over 80% of bettors laying the wood with the Cowboys this week and for good reason! Dallas is excellent on both sides of the ball. The team finally has a good defense. Bookies are likely to be angry with oddsmakers after this one plays out.
The Seahawks really struggled in Week 1 vs. a Bengals team they should have dominated. Now they have to travel back east to take on an angry Steelers club that was embarrassed on national tv by the Pats. Ben Roethlisberger and crew ALWAYS play much better at home. Bad spot for Seattle here!
The Bucs and the Panthers kick off Week 2 NFL betting on Thursday night in Carolina. Both teams dropped their season openers, but the Panthers looked better in their defeat. The oddsmaker has this game on the board at Car -6.5 with a total line of 50. Read on to get Loot’s pick against the spread.

At first glance, this game appears to be a “bug meets windshield” scenario after the ‘Phins sent Laremy Tunsil packing to Houston. One has to wonder if Miami management will be in tank mode with hopes of gaining the top pick in the 2020 NFL draft. The bookies don’t think so though, as evidenced by this line only moving from 3.5 to 7. NFL players perform with pride and don’t give up (not early in the season at least!) After all, it is a home game for Miami. Don’t expect the Dolphins to go down easy, despite the media playing up the “mutiny” angle if Tunsil was to get traded.
The NFL season opens with potentially a good match-up in Week 1 with the Packers battling the Bears in the Windy City. The betting board has the Bears as a field goal favorite with the total line set at 46 points. (Total has moved to 46.5 as of game day, despite the public heavily betting the UNDER.) Read Keith Allen’s view on who holds the advantages in the Thursday night opener and get his against the spread prediction.
“To Zeke or not to Zeke?” Does it really even matter? The Pokes offensive line is lean, mean and healthy. The Giants are fade material as long as they keep running Eli out there.
The Dirty Birds travel north to face the Purple People Eaters of Minnesota, in what promises to be one of the more interesting games of the week. The general betting public is divided on this game, as the teams are receiving equal wagering action at the sportsbooks.
These two squads split their season series with both teams getting the win on the road. The Bills easily took the first match 41-10 with Sam Darnold injured but dropped the game in Buffalo 27-23 in a game that Bills out-yarded the Jets big time. This time around the Jets have more weapons, but have they done enough to take down the visitor? Keith lays it all out with his prediction and analysis.
