Week 2 Betting Guide Pt.1
Thursday Night: Houston vs. Cincinnati
(Cincinnati -5 38OU)
Nothing like a dumpster fire to kick off week two of the NFL and that’s exactly what’s happening. In the battle of the defeated, we have Andy Dalton who is starting the year off great with 4 interceptions and no touchdowns in the shutout loss to the Ravens. He will be playing opposite rookie Deshaun Watson who came in relief of the not so Savage, Tom and led them to their only score of the game in their 7-29 loss to the Jags.
It will be interesting to see how Watson handles his first start coming off a short week. I’m looking for a win by the Bengals at home but in a close one where they barley manage to cover.
Chi’s Pick: Cincinnati -5. Over 38
New England vs. New Orleans:
(New England -6.5 OU 54.5)
Winter is coming for the Saints this week with the defending champs marching to the Big Easy to claim their first win and that they will. The Saints defense looked helpless against the Vikings and Sam Bradford tore them up for 346 yards and 3 touchdowns…. So what do you think Brady’s going to get?
The only thing i’m worried about in this game is who the Saints bounty is on. Patriots in a blow out, but Saints won’t score enough to get the over.
Chi’s Pick: New England -6.5 Under 54.5
Tennesse vs. Jacksonville:
(Tennesse -1.5 OU 43.5)
Jacksonville coming off a huge blow out win against the Texans to start off the season looking like a dark horse playoff team. This game is huge because it really sets the pace of the AFC South and I actually believe whoever wins this game will win the division.
The Titans had a tough loss at home against the Raiders but did show some potential to score the football. DeMarco Murray had a weak performance and struggled to get past the line of scrimmage but I except him to pull it together in this one.
This will be TIGHT but I think the Jags will scheme out the win at home.
Chi’s Pick: Jacksonville +1.5 Under 43.5
Cleveland vs. Baltimore:
(Baltimore -7.5 OU 40.5)
Last week Cleveland shocked the world when they actually put up a fight and covered the spread against the Steelers in week one. Rookie QB DeShone Kizer dropped 222 yards with 2 touchdowns against the Steelers and made the game competitive. There may be something in this Cleveland team that nobody expected.
The defense of Baltimore suffocated Andy Dalton and the Bengals in week one in the 20-0 shutout in Cincinnati. Causing four interceptions, the Ravens look poised to challenge the Steelers for the AFC North. I don’t think the rookie will be ready for the defensive assault of the Ravens and we might see another shutout.
Chi’s Pick: Baltimore -7.5 Under 40.5
Buffalo vs. Carolina:
(Carolina -7.5 OU 42.5)
Both teams are coming off convincing wins against lackluster teams, but now it’s time to see them stack up against a capable team. I think this will be one of the better games to watch for the week, and Vegas definitely is overrating Carolina by giving them that many points against the exciting Bills.
I’m almost certain that Carolina will win the game but think it will be much closer than the spread predicts. I would take Buffalo with the points in a high scoring contest.
Chi’s Pick: Buffalo +7.5 Over 42.5
Arizona vs. Indianpolis:
(Arizona -7.5 OU 44)
Big Bruce Arians and the Cardinals are going to destroy the Colts. This game will be over by the second quarter and Carson Palmer will make up for the sketchy performance he had in week one gathering three picks and only one touchdown.
I feel like this line will go up as it gets closer to kickoff, I have the Cardinals winning this one by 14+.
Chi’s Pick: Arizona -7.5 Over 44
