NFL Betting – The Top Five Matchups of Week 2

NFL PicksEven those who play fishing games had to be enthralled by an outstanding first week of regular-season action in the NFL, but it’s just getting started as Week 2 begins on Sunday (there are no Thursday night games until Week 10). Here is a look at the best sports betting matchups of Week 2.

Chiefs Lions Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

Look for the Lions to be favored in Detroit as Kansas City looked downright awful against Buffalo, and they may be without safety Eric Berry. That doesn’t bode well for a secondary going up against the Lions’ Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson, a duo that might make Detroit one of the most popular darkhorse NFL picks of the season.

Bears Saints Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

In this clash of NFC contenders, the Saints should be favored at home despite losing in a shootout in Green Bay, while the Bears are coming off a manhandling of Atlanta in their opener. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees doesn’t have great numbers against the Bears in his career, but NFL fans still have to consider the Saints after what the offense did in Green Bay. The problem is, they should be without receivers Marques Colston and Lance Moore because of injury.

Packers Panthers Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Packers should be favored on the road in Carolina, and the defense will be out to prove a point after they were lit up by the Saints. They’ll also be out to slow down the Panthers’ Cam Newton, who set a NFL record for passing yards in his debut in a loss against Arizona, and now he has to try and follow that up against a unit many feel is the best defense in the league.

Chargers Patriots Odds – Sunday, 4:15 PM ET

NFL betting lines should favor the Patriots at home, but they may be at a slight disadvantage as they’re in Miami on Monday night. That should be negated by San Diego’s cross-country travel, and to be honest they didn’t look that great in a win over Minnesota that needed a fourth-quarter rally. If the Chargers are going to prove that they’re a threat in the AFC, a win in New England would help.

Eagles Falcons Odds – Sunday, 8:20 PM ET

Finally, the Falcons should be favored in Atlanta, where they were phenomenal last year until the playoffs, but they’ll be trying to recover from the 30-12 beating they took in Chicago. Philadelphia beat St. Louis 31-13 on the road, but they still have some things to work on after their busy offseason. This could end up being the best game of the weekend, and a win for either team would give online sports betting players some faith in their chances.
