NFL Week 2 ATS Betting Picks

NFL Week 2 ATS Betting Picks

Written by on September 10, 2018

We still have a couple of games to come on Monday night before we can close the book on Week 1 of the NFL season. That said, it’s never to early to start looking ahead to NFL Week 2, which we will do over the course of a few different articles. We are going to break down what we believe are the best picks for Week 2 of the NFL season, starting with making some predictions ATS. Keep an eye out for our other predictions, where we will tackle some SU picks, as well as some point total predictions. Let’s get right to the ATS picks for this coming week.

NFL Week 2 ATS Betting Picks

LA Chargers (-7 ½) Vs Buffalo Bills

The Chargers have made a habit of getting off to a slow start over the course of the last few seasons. That happened again in Week 1, with the Chargers falling 38-28 to the Kansas City Chiefs. The good news is that while they are on the road in Week 2, they will be going against a Buffalo Bills team that looked truly awful in their opening week hammering at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills could not get anything going on offense, whereas the Chargers looked sharp when they had the ball. This should be a comfortable win for Philip Rivers and the Chargers.

Carolina Panthers (+4 ½) Vs Atlanta Falcons

Last season, the Falcons had some serious struggles when playing in the red zone and given their performance in Week 1 against the Eagles, it looks as though that issue has yet to be resolved. The Panthers were not great in their opener on the offensive side of the football, but shut the Dallas Cowboys down, holding them to just 8 points in a 16-8 win. The Panthers have not had much success ATS in recent visits to Atlanta, going just 1-4 in their last 5 trips to the ATL, but I think they might not only cover here, they may even get the win.

Miami (EV) Vs New York Jets

Are the Dolphins a safe bet for NFL Week 2? It’s perhaps a little too early being on this one given that we have yet to see the Jets play, but I still feel strongly enough about this game to get on it ASAP. Miami saw their season get off to a positive start, taking out the Tennessee Titans 27-20 in their opener. It was a very solid performance going against a team that may expect to be challenging for a playoff spot this season. They have also had a lot of success against the Jets in NY in recent years, going 7-3 SU against them in their last 10 meetings at the Meadowlands. I like the Dolphins to win this one, which automatically means that they cover.

Chicago Bears (-3) Vs Seattle Seahawks

Were it not for a stunning 4th quarter comeback from Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears would have pulled off one of the upsets of the opening week. While the loss is sure to be a disappointment, it was made very clear that this Bears team is going to be quite good this season, with the addition of Khalil Mack already paying dividends. The Seahawks feel in their season opener, losing by 3 to the Denver Broncos as a 3-point underdog. I think they may be in trouble again next Monday night, which is why I am on the Bears.
