Thursday Night NFL
Baltimore Ravens vs Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals and Ravens both won in week 1, but the Ravens demolishing of the Bills is the game that is getting all of the attention. The Bengals ended on a high note scoring on the last three possessions. This line opened at (-2) and has been bet down to a PK although over 70% of the early bets are on the Ravens.
We have posted a free pick against the spread on this game. Read it here!
Cleveland Browns vs New Orleans Saints
The Saints entered the season as Super Bowl contenders, but after an ugly showing against Tampa Bay, that has been on hold. The Browns are somehow celebrating a tie. The Saints opened as (-9) point favorites but that has been bet down to (-8) although 66% of the money is on the Saints.
New England Patriots vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Both of these teams won so this should be one of the better games of the week. The Patriots offensive line played great against the Texans, but will get a tough challenge against the Jags. Brady is just a (-2) road favorite and that led to over 80% of the bets backing the Pats.
Carolina Panthers v Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons only played one game, but the Falcons offense is already under fire. With extra time to prepare for week 2 and a home game o deck, the odds makers expect a better outing. Falcons opened (-5.5) and that has been bet down to (-5) with just 51% of the bets on the home team.
LA Chargers vs Buffalo Bills
The Bills look like they will be the worst team in the league and because of that 75% of the best are on the Chargers (-7.5). This could have something to do with the fact that the Bills could not get a first down on offense and they were sacked six times.
Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers
The story surrounding this game leading up to kickoff will be Aaron Rodgers and his health. That didn’t stop sportsbooks from opening this line at Packers (-2), but the betting flooded in on the Vikings (76%) and that line dropped to (-1) at most sportsbooks early in the week.
Houston Texans vs Tennessee Titans
The Titans have some serious injuries that they have to deal with. Because of those injuries, this game does not currently have odds posted, but once it does we will update this article. UPDATE: The odds opened in Vegas with the Titans listed as (-1.5) favorites.
Miami Dolphins vs New York Jets
The Jets have a short week to get ready for the Dolphins and Miami will have to try and recover from the longest game played. The Dolphins opened up as small (-1) road favorite with 63% of the best backing them, but that is bound to change this week. This is a game where if you like the Jets you should bet on them now.
Kansas City Chiefs vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers looked bad and the Chiefs looked good so of course the sportsbooks will adjust accordingly. The Steelers opened as (-4) point favorites and that number actually jumped to (-5) although 76% of the early bets are on the Chiefs. It is a dead number at 5, but still worth watching.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Eagles started the season off with a big win, but now they hit the road and head south to take on the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers proved that they can still compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm. With the big win over the Saints, the Bucs should get some respect and they did. They are just 3 point underdogs which leads 82 percent of the action to jump on the well-rested Eagles, the biggest amount this week.
Indianapolis Colts vs Washington Redskins
Andrew Luck is back. His team lost, but they looked pretty good. Meanwhile the Redskins dominated. The Redskins jumped a point from (-4.5) to (-5.5) point favorites with over 60 percent of the action on the home team.
Arizona Cardinals vs LA Rams
The Rams may be off a short week but they still opened as double digit (-11.5) favorites against the Cardinals. Ironically the offensively challenged Cardinals are getting 51% of the bets in this game.
Detroit Lions vs San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers will host the Lions on a short week and the 49ers are getting 65% of the betting action against the Lions.
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos
In a big rivalry game in the AFC West the Broncos got heavy betting action when the line opened at Denver (-3). This could be due to the short week for the Silver and Black and the fact that they will now have to play in the Mile High thin air.
Sunday Night Football
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys
On Sunday night is the tale of two rivals that looked awful in week one. The Cowboys are (-3) point favorites. This indicates a close game and the public are buying into big blue. Over 75% of the early betting returns are on the Giants.
Monday Night Football
Seattle Seahawks vs Chicago Bears
The Bears are in the rare-air as home favorites over the Seahawks on Monday night football. Behind the inspired play of Kahlil Mack the Bears are (-3.5) point favorites. The fans are not buying it with 53% of the best coming in on the Seahawks.
