A full 16 game slate will be offered up in Week 2 with all betting lines readily available at every sportsbook associated with Gamblers Palace.
The AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals will kick Week 2 of the NFL betting season off when they collide under the lights of the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football telecast. These division rivals have split each of their last four meetings both SU and ATS with the home team coming out on top three times. Baltimore’s 31-27 win in the second meeting snapped a string of three straight under. The previous three skirmishes only averaged 30.0 points per game.
Sunday’s slate kicks off in Atlanta where Matt Ryan and the Falcons will look to continue their dominance over Cam Newton and the division rival Carolina Panthers. The teams split their pair of meetings a year ago, but the win and cover was Carolina’s only one in the last five meetings. Atlanta has won and come out the pointspread victor each of the last three times it hosted Carolina.
Other intense Week 2 NFL betting matchups include the Kansas City Chiefs invading Heinz Field to battle the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Houston Texans paying the Tennessee Titans a visit for a crucial AFC South clash.
Four games are set to go in the afternoon, but the one everyone will be tuning into on CBS will be the late matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots. If you remember, the Jags let a 10-point fourth quarter lead in the AFC Championship Game go up in smoke which allowed the Pats to punch yet another ticket to the Super Bowl. Now a year more experienced and wiser, does Jacksonville have what it takes to get the best of the Hoodie?
The Dallas Cowboys swept the New York Giants last season, and they’ll be looking to add to that win streak on Sunday Night Football when the division rivals collide under the NBC lights. The G-Men have come out on top in just one of their last five visits to Big D.
The Chicago Bears will close the Week 2 betting slate out in Matt Nagy’s home debut as head coach. It marks Chicago’s second straight nationally televised appearance. This time it comes on Monday Night Football and the opponent is a Seattle Seahawks squad looking to turn the page on a disappointing 2017-18. The Seahawks have won and covered each of the last three meetings dating back to 2011, but Chicago is sure to bring their “A” game in its home opener.
Gamblers Palace will have you covered with lines and totals for all 16 games set to go in Week 2. Make it a point to read what our solid group of NFL writers has to say about the slate. From daily free picks to live odds for every game on the Week 2 NFL betting board, we got you covered.
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown Stadium – 8:20 p.m. ET ( NFL Network )
Opening Line: Ravens -2, 44.5
Preview: The Baltimore Ravens put forth one of the more dominant efforts the opening week of the NFL betting season, and will look to carry that momentum over into this grudge match. They’ll no doubt enter this Week 2 tilt on Thursday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals with fire in their eyes after Cincy shockingly put an end to their playoff hopes in the final week of the 2017 season. Continue...
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons, Mercedes-Benz Stadium – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Falcons -5.5, 44
Preview: Did it feel like the NFC division round game was simply just repeated when the Atlanta Falcons kicked off their 2018 campaign in Philadelphia last week? Turnovers. Poor red zone execution. It was nearly a carbon copy! Dan Quinn’s troops will look to rectify those issues back home in Week 2 when they kick off their NFC South schedule against the Carolina Panthers who picked up an ugly win and cover against the Dallas Cowboys in their home opener. Continue...
Los Angeles Chargers at Buffalo Bills, New Era Field – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Chargers -7, 44.5
Preview: Could the Buffalo Bills season opener in Baltimore have gone any worse? Probably not. That is unless you’re a fan of the Los Angeles Chargers and witnessed Kansas City take your team out behind the woodshed and serve up a good ‘ol fashioned beating on the NFL odds in their home opener. Continue...
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Packers -2, 47
Preview: A huge tussle is set to go down in the NFC North on Sunday afternoon when Mike Zimmer’s Minnesota Vikings invade Lambeau Field to run with Mike McCarthy’s Green Bay Packers. The Vikes kicked off their NFL betting season in style with a handling of the San Francisco 49ers, while Aaron Rodgers staged one of the biggest comebacks of his career to break the hearts of Chicago Bears fans across the country. Minnesota swept last year’s rivalry to move to 4-1 SU and ATS in the last five meetings. Continue...
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans, Nissan Stadium – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Check Back later
Preview: Only the Jacksonville Jaguars scored a win of the AFC South quadrant in Week 1 NFL betting. That makes this Week 2 tilt against the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans of utmost importance. Unfortunately, neither team is at full strength. Deshaun Watson is experiencing concussion-like symptoms, but is expected to play. Continue...
Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints, Mercedes-Benz Superdome – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: NO -9, 47.5
Preview: The Cleveland Browns 17 game losing streak is a thing of the past. It comes with a caveat however. They didn’t actually win to end it. Still, Hue Jackson’s squad can take solace in the fact that they won’t go 0-16 again this NFL betting season. Continue...
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets, MetLife Stadium – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Jets -1, 42
Preview: Raise your hand if you expected the New York Jets to throttle the Detroit Lions in Sam Darnold’s first career start. If it’s up, you’re a bold faced liar! Regardless, it was a heck of an effort from Todd Bowles’ squad who relentlessly went about their business to post the surprising outright win on the NFL odds. Continue...
Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Steelers -4, 50.5
Preview: Now that the embarrassment of tying the Cleveland Browns is behind them, the Pittsburgh Steelers will now turn their attention towards defending their home turf in Week 2. Hopefully mother Nature cooperates after playing a huge role last week.Continue...
Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Raymond James Stadium – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Eagles -3, 44
Preview: Fresh off shocking the NFC South rival New Orleans Saints as huge road underdogs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers return home in Week 2 looking to shock the NFL betting world once again against the defending Super Bowl champs. Continue...
Indianapolis Colts at Washington Redskins, FedEx Field – 1 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Redskins -4.5, 47.5
Preview: Frank Reich was one of seven rookie head coaches that failed to lead their team to a victory the opening week of the season. The Indianapolis Colts will look to rectify that in Week 2 NFL betting, but the chore will be a daunting one as good as Jay Gruden’s Washington Redskins looked in the desert last week. Continue...
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum – 4:05 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Rams -13, 46.5
Preview: If not for the Buffalo Bills, the Arizona Cardinals would’ve put forth the worst showing the opening week of the season after getting blitzkrieged at home by the Redskins. That definitely wasn’t how new head coach Steve Wilks envisioned it. Continue...
Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers, Levi’s Stadium – 4:05 p.m. ET
Opening Line: 49ers -5.5, 47
Preview: The Matt Patricia era started off with a resounding thud after his Detroit Lions were rolled up and smoked by the New York Jets in front of a nationally televised audience on Monday Night Football. The San Francisco 49ers represented well in Minnesota, but the end result was the same as the Lions. Continue...
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos, Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium – 4:25 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Broncos -6, 45
Preview: The Denver Broncos kicked off their 2018 campaign with a solid effort at home against the Seattle Seahawks which resulted in a win and non-cover. The division rival Oakland Raiders start to the NFL betting season didn’t go nearly as smooth after it was blown off its own field in the second half by the Los Angeles Rams. Continue...
New England Patriots at Jacksonville Jaguars, TIAA Bank Field – 4:25 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Patriots -2.5, 45
Preview: A rematch of the AFC title game is set to go down in a late kick-off from EverBank Field where the Jacksonville Jaguars will look to avenge that 24-20 defeat to the New England Patriots. Both squads registered wins and covers against the NFL odds last week with the Pats holding serve at home against the Texans and the Jags holding on to secure the win and cover in the Big Apple. Continue...
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, ATT Stadium – 8:20 p.m. ET ( NBC )
Opening Line: Cowboys -3.5, 43.5
Preview: Jason Garrett’s Dallas Cowboys looked listless in a non-covering defeat on the NFL odds at the Carolina Panthers leaving many unsure of what to expect in Big D moving forward. On the flipside, Pat Shurmur’s New York Giants have their fan base and NFL bettors optimistic after putting forth a solid effort in defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars.Continue....
Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears, Soldier Field – 8:15 p.m. ET ( ESPN )
Opening Line: Bears -3, 43.5
Preview: Chicago Bears fans are currently of the belief it’s the same old story with a brand new coaching staff after choking away a surefire win at Lambeau Field last Sunday night. How the heck could they lose that game up 20-3 in the fourth quarter? You know what, *hit happens. Continue...
