Final week, we opened up the NFL season with a 2-2 break up. Lamar Jackson and Justin Jefferson did their factor, however Trey Lance and the 49ers forgot to carry up their finish of the discount. Haven’t any concern, we’re at it once more in Week 2.
Regardless of an honest week, we’re switching up the ebook for Week 2 as these traces come from Draftkings. Switching up the juju will guarantee us a successful week.
Packers -10 vs. Bears
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers bought their asses kicked by the Vikings in Week 1. From dropped passes to blown coverages, it was a tough day on the workplace for a workforce anticipated to problem for the one seed. Bear in mind final season when the Packers misplaced 38-Three in Week 1 in opposition to the Saints? In Week 2, they went to Lambeau and righted the ship on their option to a 35-17 victory over the Lions.
I’m anticipating historical past to repeat itself. Rodgers owns a 22-5 report in opposition to the Bears with a formidable 61 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. I nonetheless consider the Bears are one of many three worst groups within the league. Apart from the toughness of Justin Fields, I discovered nothing concerning the Bears in a torrential downpour victory in opposition to the 49ers. The Bears haven’t gained in Inexperienced Bay since 2015. They’ll must strive once more subsequent 12 months as a result of it ain’t taking place on Sunday night time.
Lions +1 vs. Commanders
I don’t just like the Lions. I love the Lions. Detroit is a frisky bunch that often finds a option to cowl. They have been 10-7 ATS in 2021. Carson Wentz threw for 313 yards, 4 (!!!) TDs, and a couple of INTs per week in the past in opposition to the Jaguars. Do you suppose that can occur once more? Actually, no! Dan Campbell will get to have fun with a pleasant chunk out of a kneecap.
Underdog of the Week: Steelers +Three vs. Patriots
The Patriots are favored solely due to this phrase: “Invoice Belichick gained’t begin 0-2.” Belichick owns Tomlin, having gained 6 of the final 7 matchups. Nonetheless, Tom Brady not performs QB for the Pats. Why would anybody belief the Patriots offense after placing up 291 yards and seven factors per week in the past? I perceive Najee Harris (well being) and Mitch Trubisky (abilities) are restricted, and T.J. Watt is out. However, I just like the Steelers protection to make life a residing hell for Mac Jones as Pittsburgh goes on to win by a area purpose.
Teaser: 7 factors, Packers -10>-3, Payments -10>-3
In contrast to the Packers who’re in a bounce again mode, the Payments need to maintain their foot on the throttle after the Week 1 blowout victory in opposition to the Rams. The Titans beat the Payments final 12 months by a area purpose, however after their efficiency in opposition to the Giants in Week 1, why would anybody belief this offense? Quantity king Derrick Henry had 20 carries for 82 yards in opposition to the Giants. The Payments will stack the field and make Ryan Tannehill beat them. Good luck, Tanny, since you gained’t outduel Josh Allen.
Common Bets: 1-1
Underdog of the Week: 1-0
Teaser of the Week: 0-1
