Week 2 Nfl Football Predictions

After a Week 1 full of surprises, we are looking to build on what we learned and apply that knowledge in Week 2. For my fellow NFL betting degenerates out there, that means it’s time to get our Week 2 NFL picks and predictions in order. Let’s take a look at who I like to cover the spread in Week 2.

Week 2 NFL picks and predictions | Betting lines and odds

Oddsmakers are extremely sharp when it comes to setting lines. With a week between games, they have ample time to fine-tune their numbers to get action on both sides. Let’s take a look at every Week 2 game and pick some winners against the spread. All lines are from DraftKings Sportsbook and are correct as of 2 PM ET on September 17.

New Orleans Saints (-3) at Carolina Panthers

Time and channel: 1 PM ET, FOX

Both teams are coming off Week 1 victories, with the Saints looking mighty impressive, holding Aaron Rodgers to the worst game of his career. With that being said, this feels like a prime letdown spot for Jameis Winston on the road against a better-than-you-think defense.

NFL Week 2 Picks and Predictions: Panthers 23, Saints 20

Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears (-2.5)

Time and channel: 1 PM ET, FOX

The Bengals are coming off an impressive home win in overtime over the Vikings. Meanwhile, the Bears embarrassed themselves on national television against the Rams. Cincinnati looks like the better team, but we know it’s never that easy in the NFL.

NFL Week 2 Picks and Predictions: Bears 27, Bengals 21

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (-13)

Time and channel: 1 PM ET, FOX

This is a perfect confluence of talent and narrative that should lead to a blowout. The Texans are coming off a dominant home victory, while the Browns suffered a tough road loss at Kansas City. This is one of my favorite plays of the week.

NFL Week 2 Picks and Predictions: Browns 34, Texans 10
