NFL: Week 2 picks against the spread


DETROIT – Well, at least I said week one is the hardest to bet on. I sure took it on the chops Sunday, winning just five of the 12 games played. Then, to top it off, I was off on both Monday Night Football games.

If there is anything I can hang my hat on, it’s that I was correct in picking a majority of underdogs last week. I had eight dogs covering, and after the Chargers covered in the final MNF game, there were a total of eight underdogs that covered the spread. It’s the little things.

Overall record after 1 week: 5-9

Week 2 picks:

Thursday, Sept. 14

Houston Texans +5 at Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, Sept. 17

Baltimore Ravens -7.5 vs Cleveland Browns

Carolina Panthers -7.5 vs Buffalo Bills

Indianapolis Colts +7.5 vs Arizona Cardinals

Tennessee Titans -1.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Philadelphia Eagles +4.5 at Kansas City Chiefs

New England Patriots -6.5 at New Orleans Saints

Pittsburgh Steelers -6.5 vs Minnesota Vikings

Tampa Bay Buccaneers -7 vs Chicago Bears

Miami Dolphins +4.5 at Los Angeles Chargers

Oakland Raiders -14 vs New York Jets

Denver Broncos +2.5 vs Dallas Cowboys

Washington Redskins +2.5 at Los Angeles Rams

Seattle Seahawks -13.5 vs San Francisco 49ers

Sunday Night Football

Green Bay Packers +2.5 at Atlanta Falcons

Monday Night Football, Sept. 18

Detroit Lions +4 at New York Giants

That splits me down the middle with eight underdogs and eight favorites.
