Now that we have a week of NFL action in the books, we can make more informed choices for our best bets to make in Week 2.
Denver Broncos (-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Teddy Bridgewater looks poised in the pocket and comfortable with the many weapons the Broncos offense has around him. Trevor Lawrence on the other hand is surrounded by a team that looks very much like it did in 2020 when it played itself into the first overall pick.
Denver’s offense is adequate in this one, and their secondary will be smothering, forcing Lawrence into multiple turnovers for the second straight week. The Broncos roll and cover the spread.
Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (-12.5)
Normally you wouldn’t take this big of a favorite against a dog coming off a win, but this is not a normal circumstance. Sure, the Texans are coming off a blowout win. But that roster is still not good, and Tyrod Taylor will not be able to handle the Browns pass rush.
Cleveland is coming off a near-win in Kansas City, and the frustration of that fourth-quarter loss will be taken out on the overmatched Texans. The Browns will run the ball at will and force multiple turnovers on defense. Cleveland wins this game by at least 17 points.
San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5)
The 49ers will probably still sneak out a win at Philadelphia. But with running back Raheem Mostert and cornerback Jason Verrett done for the season, this is a team reeling. As we saw at the end of the Lions game, there are serious cracks on this defense with an undermanned secondary.
On the flip side, the Eagles and Jalen Hurts look good on offense, and definitely good enough to hang with the Niners for most of the game. New head coach Nick Sirianni showed himself to be aggressive and well-prepared, and he’ll have his team ready to give San Francisco a game to the bitter end.
Take the points.
Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks (-6)
We knew the Titans defense would be bad. But the biggest revelation in Week 1 is that this offense, now without offensive coordinator Arthur Smith calling the plays, is not nearly as good as it has been in previous seasons.
Just as good as always is Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. He lit up the Colts defense in Week 1, and he will have another big game against the Titans. Wilson throws four touchdowns in this one (equally what Kyler Murray did against Tennessee) and Seattle wins by at least 10 points.
