NFL Quick Picks

  • Eagles vs Buccaneers – Eagles (-3, -115)
  • Patriots vs Jaguars – Jaguars (SU +100)
  • Ravens vs Bengals - Ravens (SU -105)
  • Rams vs Cardinals – Rams (-13, -109)

NFL Pick of the Week – Week 2

Philadelphia Eagles vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bet Eagles Spread (-3, -115)

Fitzmagic gave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers an entertaining week one upset over the New Orleans Saints. Ryan threw for 417 yards and four TDs while scampering in for his own rushing touchdown, outgunning Drew Brees and the Saints by a 48-40 margin.

Philadelphia’s week one victory over the Atlanta Falcons wasn’t as entertaining as the Bucs-Saints tilt, but the Eagles leveraged their elite NFL defense to stifle the combo of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The defending Super Bowl champions will need to lean on MVP Nick Foles for a few more weeks, until Carson Wentz fully recovers from knee surgery.

As fun as Fitzmagic was to open the season, the Philadelphia Eagles top-five defense will not allow the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to run wild and free. Tampa’s defense allowed 40 points to New Orleans, suggesting that Foles and the rest of the offense will score more than 18 points, which is far less than their 28.6 PPG average in 2017.

Tampa Bay looks rejuvenated, but they don’t have the talent, depth or defense necessary to defeat reining champs.

NFL Moneyline of the Week

New England Patriots vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Bet Jaguars Moneyline (+100)

Jacksonville nearly upset New England during the 2018 AFC championship finals. The Patriots needed a patented fourth-quarter comeback from the ageless Brady to defeat the Jaguars. This regular season rematch should be one of the most competitive tilts of week two, pitting a young, elite defense against an experienced, veteran offense.

The Jaguars suffocating defense, along with Leonard Fournette’s punishing running game, represents one of the best blueprints to beat Brady and the Patriots. Line movement has reduced the New England Patriots spread from -2 to -1.5, implying that smart money’s betting on the Jags at home.

NFL Week 2 Best Betting Values

Baltimore Ravens vs Cincinnati Bengals

Sure, the Buffalo Bills made Joe Flacco look like he’s worth his massive contract, but the combination of Baltimore’s superb defense along with a refreshed Flacco will have an excellent chance to defeat Andy Dalton and the Bengals in Cincinnati on Thursday.

Bet Ravens SU -105

Arizona Cardinals vs Los Angeles Rams

Los Angeles completely decimated the Cardinals last season, winning both matchups by an average of 24.5 points. Arizona’s in the middle of a rebuild while the Rams are legit Super Bowl favorites. Select the Rams spread before it grows to two converted TDs.

Bet Rams -13, -109

Kansas City Chiefs vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Fans of Le’Veon Bell will feel vindicated by the ridiculous draw between the Steelers and the Browns in week one, but Pittsburgh remains one of the best home teams in the NFL. Expect Pittsburgh to rebound with a win that easily beats the spread.

Bet Steelers -4, -106
