NFL Odds Preview - Week 2 Predictions
By Jake Thompson


Welcome back for another season of picks against the Las Vegas point spread.  Those of you who followed our NFL predictions last season saw us go 124-91 which is good for nearly 58%.  Theoretically (check to see if wagering on sports if legal in your area), anyone who bet $100 on each of our predictions last year would have ended the season with a profit over close to $2500.  Now the 2013 regular season is here and we will aim to do even better than 2012.  Best of luck to everyone!

New York Jets and New England Patriots -11

The Jets have absolutely no offense with Geno Smith back there and they are going to be blown out after turning the ball over and giving New England easy points.  Go with the Patriots to win by 20 or more.

San Diego Chargers at Philadelphia Eagles -7.5

Philadelphia looked good against one of the worst defenses in football in week 1 but they are still terrible on defense and their offense isn't going to work well against teams with defensive pulses.  The Chargers are much improved on both sides of the ball and could easily win outright.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens -7

The Ravens are another team is nowhere near as good as last year and the Browns are improved.  This one should be a close game and the Ravens' lack of a defense for the first time in years will have them struggling to win games in the early going.  Look at Cleveland to lose by only a field goal.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans -9.5

The Titans aren't going to move the ball here and their defense isn't improved enough to stop the Texans from rushing for big yardage.  Look for Houston to rebound with a blowout win after looking iffy in week 1.

Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts -2.5

I wasn't impressed with either of these teams in week 1 but the Colts have the edge on offense and since they are at home I think they can cover this small point spread.

Carolina Panthers -3 at Buffalo Bills

One of the most improved teams I saw in week 1 was the Buffalo Bills and I think they are going to be a potential playoff squad in 2013.  Carolina still is poor defensively and Cam Newton makes far too many mistakes to be competitive in a tough road game like this.

St. Louis Rams at Atlanta Falcons -6.5

The Rams are another of the NFL teams on my much-improved list but ultimately I don't think they are ready to compete with the Falcons on the road.  Atlanta is sound on both sides of the ball and should win by 10 or more.

Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers -7.5

Washington displayed a terrible defense in week 1 and this team will only be able to stop teams if the offense gets a big lead.  Look for the Packers to score a million points in this matchup and for the Redskins to still look rusty offensively.

Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City Chiefs -3

Kansas City looked good in their season opener but you also have to realize they played the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.  Dallas' defense is going to be an issue and I don't think the Cowboys score easily in this week 2 matchup.  The Chiefs still have holes but I think they can win by a touchdown at home.

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears -6

The Vikings don't have a passing game which hurts their ability to score, but Chicago's defense isn't as good as it used to be.  That being said, I believe the Bears are a better team and should be able to win by about 10 here while covering the odds.

New Orleans Saints -3.5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay looked completely lost against the Jets in week 1 but they should have more success offensively in week 2 since they will be able to run on the Saints.  New Orleans will score plenty of points but I think Tampa Bay can match them and possibly pull the outright upset.

Detroit Lions -1.5 at Arizona Cardinals

Detroit looked awesome in week 1 but there are still plenty of questions with the defense.  Going into the desert is never an easy place for opposing teams to play but the Cardinals don't have much of an offense and their defense isn't getting any younger.  Ultimately I like the Lions to win here but it's always scary to play against the Cardinals in Arizona.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders -5.5

Oakland and Jacksonville are the 2 worst teams in the NFL so I'm taking the Jaguars as an underdog.  Terrelle Pryor is no NFL quarterback and he's playing behind the worst offensive line in the sport.  Look for Jacksonville to only lose by 3 if they don't win outright.

Denver Broncos -4.5 at New York Giants

The Manning Bowl features 2 high powered offenses but only the Broncos have given me a reason to think they can stop the opposition.  New York could score 30 points here and it still won't be enough to cover the point spread.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks -3

Seattle didn't look right in week 1 and the 49ers have a big edge in how explosive their offense is.  With both defenses being solid and a low-scoring game being a real possibility, I think taking the 3 points on the 49ers is the best bet.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals -7

The Steelers suffered some huge injuries in week 1 and their offense seems poised to be terrible for a while.  Pittsburgh's defense can keep them in some games but I'll take the Bengals to turn mistakes from the Steelers' offense into easy points as they win by 8 in a low-scoring game.
