NFL Football Picks
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.
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.
