NFL week 2 odds, picks, schedule, how to watch, stream: expert picks vs. spread, survivor and more

Week 1 may not have had fans in the stands at most NFL stadiums, but for the most part it certainly looked like everything we’ve seen in past football seasons. Aaron Rodgers upped the score as the Packers took a win, the team that lost the Super Bowl felt the full effects of a hangover just outside the gate, and the scoreboard reflected that NFL offenses generally had no problem with the lack of a preseason (something to note, NFL decision makers).

Now our focus today turns to week 2, where the Browns have already taken a step towards righting the ship after an opening week defeat to the Ravens by racing all over the Bengals on Thursday night. The rest of the list brings us a team of Ravens looking to keep humming in Houston against the Texans, a team that fought in Thursday̵

7;s first game of the year against the Chiefs, who are now heading to L.A. to face rival divisional Chargers. After those Sunday afternoon games, the focus shifts to “Sunday Night Football” and a Super Bowl XLIX rematch in Seattle as the Patriots take on the Seahawks, then the first NFL game of the Las Vegas era as the Raiders host the Saints Monday night.

Rams at Eagles

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Eagles -3, U / U 46.5
Current: Eagles -1, U / U 45.5

“Carson Wentz can’t be protected. He was put under pressure on a third of his dropbacks, and when he had time he was able to air it to Jalen Reagor or DeSean Jackson or Dallas Goedert. And the Eagles defense. still couldn’t stop a Dwayne Haskins attack simple enough. I don’t think the Eagles will have an answer for what Sean McVay will do to them before the snap, and Jared Goff should hit them for some big games after rocking the defense to fall asleep with stuff short. “- NFL insider Jonathan Jones on why he’s taking the Rams to win

Jones went 11-5 straight in the first week in which eight underdogs won outright. Check out the rest of her week 2 picks in her Friday notes column.

Giants at Bears

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Bears -5.5, U / U 43
Current: Bears -5.5, U / U 42

“The Giants showed some grit against the Steelers, but they were overwhelmed in terms of talent. That’s not the case here. The Bears did some good things up front to beat the Lions last week and I think they can handle it. finished. But this will be close. “- Pete Prisco, who makes the Bears win by one point

Prisco took the Giants and points as the best bet in our weekly Pick Six Pod picks chat. You can see all his final score predictions in his Wednesday column.

Jaguars in Titans

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Titans -11, O / U 43
Current: Titans -7.5, U / U 44

The Titans were established earlier in the week to be the most used team in survivor pools by a large margin, as they were the only team installed as a double-digit favorite. But then the line kept dropping, dropping and then dropping, and now the Titans are barely touchdown favorites. However, they should be perfectly safe to use even with the toughest injury report to overcome in this game, which includes A.J. Brown is excluded. After all, can you imagine jaguars outright winning as losers of more than one touchdown twice in a row? But they’re not my favorite play of the week, which is the Cardinals, a team that definitely looks like a legitimate playoff contender in front of a Washington side that didn’t do much offensively despite their upset win. Washington had the fewest offensive yards gained in the entire championship last week, and you don’t win very often when you do.

Panthers at Buccaneers

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Bucanieri -8.5, U / U 48
Current: Buccaneers -8.5, U / U 47.5

“Did anyone else get a little depressed watching Saints and Bucs last weekend? I suppose we could blame Tom Brady’s slow start for the lack of preseason, but I think he ignores the fact that he didn’t look particularly great last weekend either. season I know there was a lot of hype about the Tampa bout coming this season, but it didn’t look great last week, and now Mike Evans is still dealing with a hamstring problem and Chris Godwin getting into protocol Concussion Wednesday. It’s hard to be optimistic about a breakthrough this week, but I’m not ready to pounce on the Panthers here. Instead, I’ll trust both defenses to best limit the opposing offenses. I wish this line so much more if you are crept up to 49, but I’m still comfortable enough at 48.5 to bring him here. “- Tom Fornelli on why Under 48.5 is one of his best bets

Fornelli made his best bet before the total in this matchup dropped to 47.5, so be careful if you’re following his game. On the other hand, Will Brinson had Over 47.5 as one of his best bets on Friday’s Pick Six podcast. You can see the rest of Fornelli’s best bets in his Thursday column.

49ers to Jets

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: 49ers -6.5, O / U 43.5
Current: 49ers -7, U / U 41.5

For those looking to play a teaser in week 2, I think this is the perfect game to include in the mix. The 49ers weren’t impressive in a first week defeat to the Cardinals, and I don’t trust them to cover as touchdown favorites on the road against anyone. This includes the Jets, who may be the worst team in the league and are facing a string of injuries. The biggest absence in this game comes from the San Francisco side, with George Kittle banned for the matchup. But with Brandon Aiyuk returning to a full workout this week and Raheem Mostert sure to step on this defense, I’m fine teasing the 49ers down to -1 and counting on them to win. I’d put the Steelers -1.5 as the other leg in my best teaser play of the week.

Each week, I rank all potential teaser teams and propose the best options for anyone wishing to create a teaser. You can see those rankings, as well as the teams I would avoid, in my Wednesday column.

Invoices to Dolphins

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Invoices -4.5, U / U 43
Current: Invoices -5.5, U / U 41

“If you are watching, I recommend that you check if you are, 1. currently wearing a Dan Marino shirt and have spent the last 732 Sundays crying from 1pm to 4pm or, 2. eating a Styrofoam plate covered in chilli and cheese and describing it as a Local delicacy. Anyway, I’m so sorry, you should sue Bill Belichick for emotional damage. Also, don’t bet here other than the Under. “- Will Brinson, who thinks you should hammer the Under team

Brinson said on the Pick Six podcast that he was surprised this line wasn’t a touchdown, and chose the accounts to win 17-10 in his Thursday column. You can see the rest of his final score predictions here.

Broncos at Steelers

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Steelers -6, O / U 43.5
Current: Steelers -7, O / U 40.5

“Big Ben has improved a lot as the game progressed and is starting to take advantage of some of its new weapons. There isn’t much they don’t like about the Steelers aside from maybe the right side of their offensive line, but without Von Miller. and the Denver defense is missing a bit of punch, I don’t think that will be a major factor. I have a hard time seeing Drew Lock being very successful against a Steelers defense who is loaded with playmakers at every level and is pretty much good at at least a couple of turnovers per game. I injured Phillip Lindsay and I have a hard time seeing Denver control the ball in this one. ” – NFL insider Jason La Canfora on why he has the Steelers as his best bet

Canfora went 2-1 on his best bets in week 1, and is back with three more this week, including a teaser play he loves. Check out all of his best bets in his Friday column.

Falcons at Cowboys

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Cowboys -6.5, U / U 51
Current: Cowboys -4, O / U 53.5

Since 2014, teams coached by Dan Quinn are 5-1 against teams coached by Mike McCarthy. That total includes two wins Quinn picked up while he was the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator and three wins with the Falcons. If McCarthy had impressed me against the Rams on Sunday, I probably would have ignored the head-to-head training stats, but instead he did the opposite of impressing me. … The Cowboys also have to deal with some serious injuries (Blake Jarwin, Leighton Vander Esch), and yes, I think I just convinced myself to blame them. Also, the Falcons never lose in week 2. In what may become the weirdest stat in NFL history, the Falcons are 5-0 in week 2 since 2015. Basically, you should always pick against the Falcons, except in the week. 2. “- John Breech on why he won the Falcons outright

Breech is looking to bounce back from a 5-10-1 ATS performance in Week 1, even though he nailed both strands and correctly picked the Bengals to cover on Thursday night. Check all of his predictions in his Tuesday column.

Lions at Packers

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Packers -5.5, O / U 46
Current: Packers -6.5, U / U 49.5

Pete Prisco: “You know I have the Packers, Brinson has the Lions (to win the division) -”

Will Brinson: “The Lions should have won last week! D’Andre Swift, you’re killing me, Smalls! Almighty God!”

Priscus: “Yeah, well, (Matthew) Stafford threw a terrible interception that created a point blank touchdown, so look, there was no doubt in the Packers game. Aaron Rodgers is back, the ball doesn’t go over the helmet top – means he’s back, he’s throwing lasers You mocked me for (Marquez) Valdes-Scantling, if the guy takes two more passes he has 180 yards because he left two which should have been long gains. … This game is skyrocketing over the total. I love Packers-Lions as the best bet over the total. ”

R.J. White: “‘You teased me about my receiver missing two passes, I guess I showed you.'”

Priscus: “He still had a touchdown and 100 yards!”

White: “No, he made a good game, I just thought it was funny.”

Vikings in Colts

Time: Sunday, 1pm ET (FOX), stream on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Colts -3, O / U 46.5
Current: Colts -3, O / U 49

“Philip Rivers is a statue and keeps turning the ball. Colts’ defense just allowed Gardner Minshew to complete 19 of 20 passes. Minnesota should be favorites in this game. Vikings will manage the ball better this week and come to 1-1. “- Hammerin ‘Hank Goldberg on why the Vikings are one of his best bets for week 2.

Goldberg, a sports betting legend, is a staggering 25-8 on his best bets since last season after going 2-1 in Week 1. See who else makes the card on his best three-team parlay on SportsLine.

Washington at Cardinals

Time: Sunday, 4:05 PM ET (FOX), streaming on fuboTV (try it for free)
Open: Cardinals -6.5, U / U 46
Current: Cardinals -7, U / U 46.5

“These two teams got upset last week, but only the Cardinals look like a legitimate playoff contender. Washington took advantage of the Eagles’ injury problems on the offensive line to rack up eight layoffs, but I don’t think that happens. with a team of Cardinals getting a win over a team with another elite defensive line. I don’t expect Washington to do much offensively against an improving defense, and this looks like a line that people would expect to be three points higher later in the season. ” – R.J. White on why the Cardinals are one of his five best bets

Ravens at Texans

Time: Sunday, 4:25 PM ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Ravens -6.5, U / U 53.5
Current: Ravens -7.5, U / U 50

“Remember when Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson faced off last year? The bout was touted as this showdown between two emerging quarterback stars who would face off in a shootout. What those commercials didn’t mention is that the Ravens were a much better team. Jackson and Co. won 41-7, and the Ravens appear to be just as good in 2020 after recording a 32-point win over the Cleveland Browns in the season opener. I was not very impressed with the passing of the Texans matched without DeAndre Hopkins, and Watson only targeted two wide receivers in the first three-quarters of their 14-point defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs. While we all know Jackson is a star, Marquise Brown looks set for a breakout season and rookie JK Dobbins has just improved the best offensive running in the league. I feel comfortable getting the Ravens to win by touchdown. ” – Jordan Dajani, who won the Ravens 35-24

Thursday night Dajani got the Browns and Bengals win coverage, so he’s already 1-0 both SU and ATS for week 2. You can check out the rest of his picks in his Thursday column.

Chiefs at Chargers

Time: Sunday, 4:25 PM ET (CBS), streaming on CBS All Access
Open: Heads -7.5, U / U 51
Current: Heads -8.5, U / U 47.5

“From my point of view after the first week, Kansas City still looks like the finest team in the league and, given its powerful offensive, should be double-digit favored in most of its races. Los Angeles needed a rally. fourth quarter to beat the Bengals in Joe Burrow’s early career start. In the Kansas City Chargers’ seasonal sweep in 2019, the average winning margin was only six points. I throw it out the window here and see a double-digit win for the reigning champions as they continue their cruise in early 2020 “. – Tyler Sullivan, who won the Chiefs 27-17 in this bout

Sully had a tough first week ATS but nailed his “TNF” prediction of a Browns win and Bengals cover. You can check out the rest of her week 2 picks in her Wednesday column.
