If I Were A Betting Man, This Is What I’d Do: NFL Week 2
This is what I would do this week if I were a betting man. I would’ve been 4-4 last week if I had bet.
If I Were A Betting Man
We now have 1 week of results with week 2 having some traditional matchups with trends we can follow. This is what I’d do if I were betting.
N.Y. Jets (-1) at Buffalo
The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Buffalo. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The Jets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings, and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Buffalo. I would take Buffalo and the under 42.5 as Rex seems to have his old team’s number for some reason.
San Francisco (+13.5) at Carolina
The 49ers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Carolina, and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 meetings. The 49ers won the worst Monday night game I think I’ve ever seen. I would expect an angry Carolina team to make things difficult for Blaine Gabbert.
Kansas City at Houston (-2.5)
The road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The Chiefs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Houston. I like Kansas City coming off a large comeback victory.
Miami at New England (-6.5)
The home team is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The Dolphins are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in New England. Brady or no Brady, I’d take New England.
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (-3.5)
The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Pittsburgh. The Bengals are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. I’d take Pittsburgh and the under 48.5.
Dallas at Washington (-2.5)
The road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. I see a close game being decided at the end. When that’s the case, take the points.
Seattle at Los Angeles
The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The Seahawks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Los Angeles. The number is actually not even out for this game yet. Take the Rams when they do come out as it will be entirely too large.
Indianapolis (+6) at Denver
The Colts are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Denver, and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings. I like Luck over Semian scoring points. Take the Colts and the over 46.5.
Atlanta at Oakland (-5.5)
The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. Something is wrong with Atlanta and Oakland will be riding high after a ballsy 2 point conversion for a win last week. I’d take Oakland.
Jacksonville at San Diego (-3)
The over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The Jaguars are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings. I like the Chargers and the over 47.
Green Bay at Minnesota (+2.5)
The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. This will be about defense. I’d take the Vikings.
Philadelphia at Chicago
The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. I envision a Carson Wentz shootout with Jay Cutler on Monday night. I like the over 42.5.
These would be my picks if I were a betting man. As always, be careful if you gamble and make sure you are responsible.
