NFL Week 2 Odds + Predictions
Looking for NFL Week 2 Odds and free NFL picks? If Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season was any indication of what we are in for this weekend, I can’t wait. In fact I have already begun my speculation of what will go down on this slate of games. Will the Patriots continue proving that a “system” trumps talent?

Here is a peek into every game on the docket, the odds that accompany the games and what should play out in what promises to be another scintillating week of NFL ball.
NFL Week 2 Odds for Week 2 NFL Action
Jets at Bills (-2)
You had better believe that Rex Ryan will be pumped for this one – his butt is on the hot seat already.
That said Sammy Watkins is already banged up for the Bills, Tyrod Taylor looked awful in Buffalo’s first game and the Jets looked good against a contending Bengals team last week.
It all adds up to another loss for Buffalo who are once again searching for answers.
Bengals at Steelers (-3.5)
The Steelers have won five of their last six games against Cincinnati – both teams have to be considered inside the top tier or two of NFL teams.
Sure Pittsburgh looked good in their first game of the season but Cincinnati also did some good things against a very good Jets defense.
I like Cincinnati to get it done here – they are just a tad better than the Steelers in almost every aspect of the game.
Titans at Lions (-5.5)
The Lions play their home opener this week off an impressive shootout win at Indianapolis last week. The Titans on the other hand head out on the road where they have won just three times in the last two seasons!
Detroit looks like a fairly well-rounded team so far – not sold on the Titans just yet.
Take the Lions to turn a few early-season heads with an easy win Sunday.
Chiefs at Texans (-2)
This should be a doozie of a game! Both of these teams did some good things in Week 1. Believe me – the Texans defense isn’t like that of the Chargers!
That said Houston hasn’t won a game in the series since 2010 and the Chiefs showed us who they are in the second half of last week’s game.
Take the slight upset here and for the Chiefs to emerge 2-0.
Dolphins at Patriots (-6.5)
The Pats haven’t lost at home to the Fins since 2008 but they may be without Rob Gronkowski again this week. Sure New England went into Arizona in Week 1 and pulled a bit of a stunner but a slight correction may be in order.
While I like the Pats to win straight up I think this game is close – Miami played Seattle awfully tough last week and I expect that to happen again. Pats win but the Fins cover.
Ravens (-7) at Browns
This is a pretty big spread for a Baltimore team that has gone 8-16 in their last 24 road games. To be honest Cleveland may be a better team with Josh McCown under center.
Look, I am not expecting a Cleveland win here – they are the Browns after all but I do like them to keep it close – the last three games played in Cleveland have been decided by six or less points
Cowboys at Redskins (-3.5)
Did anyone see the Redskins on Monday night? Exactly! Dak Prescott should be able to operate with little hassle from the Skins, Dez Bryant could duplicate what Antonio Brown did to the Skins and Zeke Elliot could have himself a game.
The Cowboys have won their past three games in Washington (one with Matt Cassel at the helm).
I expect more of the same.
Saints at Giants (-5)
I would take a serious look at the Over here (52.5) – these teams have gone Over the Total four straight meetings. To be blunt the Saints are a bad football team, particularly on defense where they gave up over 500 yards and 35 points last week.
Eli and Odell have to be drooling at this matchup – take the G-Me to stomp the Saints.
49ers at Panthers (-13.5)
The 49ers looked good on Monday night AGAINST ONE OF THE WORST TEAMS IN RECENT MEMORY. The Panthers ain’t no LA Rams.
I expect this to be a stomping on Sunday – not only do the Panthers want to avenge a Week 1 loss but they get to do so against one of the most vanilla offenses in the game. Take Carolina in the biggest blow-out of the week.
Buccaneers at Cardinals (-6.5)
The Cardinals have a lot to prove after last week’s loss.
I cannot fathom them losing two straight at home to start the season. That said the Bucs look like a much improved team on both sides of the ball.
I do like the Bucs to keep this one close but for the Cards to right the ship in Week 2.
Seahawks (-3.5) at Rams
Did anyone watch the Monday Night debacle?
The Rams could be the worst team I’ve ever seen – this game shouldn’t be close despite Russell Wilson being dinged and the fact that Todd Gurley should bounce back.
Colts at Broncos (-6)
Interesting game in Denver for sure.
The Broncos overachieved in Week 1 while the Colts underachieved. Trevor Siemian was terrific for the Broncos and CJ Anderson was as advertised.
With a defense like Denver can trot out you have to love them to hold down Indy. The Colts defense on the other hand is awful – look for Denver to win by at least a touchdown although the Colts have won seven of the last eight games in the series.
Falcons at Raiders (-4.5)
The Falcons just aren’t a very good football team folks. On the other hand despite a brutal defensive effort in Week 1 for Oakland they seem to be on a nice path – their secondary woes will iron themselves out and Oakland WILL be a force.
Atlanta has won every game in the series since 2008 – expect that run to come to an end Sunday.
As for the Spread I think Oakland runs it up and easily covers especially if Julio Jones’ ankle is indeed a problem.
Jaguars at Chargers (-3)
The Jags are 1-15 on the road the last two seasons – not good! But they played well against the Packers last week in a loss and look much different that teams of past.
Keenan Allen is gone from the Chargers attack leaving them thin indeed on the offensive side of the ball. I have ZERO faith in San Diego and expect the upstart Jags to take care of business Sunday.
Packers (-2.5) at Vikings
The Packers are 5-1 in their last six visits to Minnesota and despite their win last week, the Vikes didn’t look all that great. Aaron Rodgers and gang have a ton to prove against a Vikings team that is supposed to challenge them in the division.
Green Bay is the class of that division – expect them to prove why on Sunday.
Eagles at Bears (-3)
Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles couldn’t have drawn it up any better – a game against the lowly Browns in their opener was exactly what the doctor ordered.
The Bears figure to be a tougher out although perhaps not that much tougher. The Eagles are 6-1 while playing in their road opener – good enough for me to support in a battle of a couple of slightly below average teams.
