2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 Sure Winners

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) at Green Bay (1-0)

  • When: Thursday, August 16, 2018, 8:00 PM ET
  • Where: Lambeau Field
  • NFL Odds: Green Bay Packers -2.5 (Total 37.5)
The Steelers jumped all over Philadelphia in their 31-14 Week 1 preseason smackdown last week and while the Green Bay Packers also got the win in their scrimmage season opener by beating Tennessee 31-17, the pick for this Week 2 pairing looks like a virtual lock to me.Pittsburgh has a great situation at backup quarterback where second-year signal-caller Joshua Dobbs, rookie Mason Rudolph, and veteran Landry Jones are all in a three-way battle for two spots. Green Bay is looking to either Brett Hundley, second-year quarterback DeShone Kizer or Tim Boyle to be the backup to Aaron Rodgers, but I’m not really impressed with any of the Packers reserve quarterbacks.While Green Bay has won six straight preseason games at home while covering the chalk each time, Pittsburgh has won three consecutive preseason games on the road and four of their last five overall while covering the spread in each victory. I’m going with Pittsburgh to get the road win simply because they have the better set of backup quarterbacks and you should too.Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers +2.5

New York Jets (1-0) at Washington Redskins (0-1)

  • When: Thursday, August 16, 2018, 8:00 PM ET
  • Where: FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland
  • NFL Odds: Washington Redskins -2 (Total 37)
The Jets spanked Atlanta 17-0 in their preseason opener because of the eye-opening play of quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and first-round draft pick Sam Darnold. Bridgewater was on point by completing 7 of 8 passes for 85 yards and one touchdown while Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 draft, looked like a guy ready to play now in completing 13 of 18 passes for 96 yards and one score.Washington couldn’t hold on to a 10-0 first-quarter lead over New England in their preseason opener en route to a 26-17 road loss in their scrimmage opener on Thursday. Veteran backup Colt McCoy was solid in completing 13 of 18 passes for 189 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while third-stringer Kevin Hogan also looked good while going 7 of 9 passes for 44 yards. Unfortunately, Washington got some bad news in this contest as they lost rookie running back Derrius Guice for the season to a torn ACL.The Redskins come in as favorites for the 2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 game against the Jets.I like Washington’s Colt McCoy and former Stanford signal-caller Kevin Hogan, but for me, the New York Jets are the easy pick in this one because of their ‘three-headed monster’ situation at quarterback. Teddy Bridgewater, Sam Darnold, and Josh McCown all have great reasons to play well for the remainder of the preseason as each quarterback wants to earn the starting job for New York’s regular-season opener. Simply put, the New York Jets are the pick to win and cover the chalk!Pick: New York Jets +2

Philadelphia Eagles (0-1) at New England Patriots (1-0)

  • When: Thursday, August 16, 2018, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
  • NFL Odds: New England Patriots -2 (Total 40.5)
The Eagles got smacked around in their humbling 31-14 loss to Pittsburgh in their preseason opener as both, starting quarterback Carson Wentz and Super Bowl-winning backup Nick Foles both sat out. Third-string signal-caller Nate Sudfeld completed an efficient 10 of 14 passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns but also tossed two costly interceptions. Fourth-string hopeful Joe Callahan completed 8 of 18 passes for 91 yards in the loss. Hometown Super Bowl star, second-year running back Corey Clement led the Birds with 30 rushing yards on five carries while Shelton Gibson and Dallas Goedert added touchdown catches in the loss.The Patriots overcame a 10-point first quarter deficit to beat Washington 26-17 in their preseason opener as backup quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Danny Etling combined to go 18-for-28 for 161 passing yards. New England’s ground game led the way to victory with veteran running back Jeremy Hill picking up a team-high 51 rushing yards and one touchdown while fellow running back Ralph Webb added 46 rushing yards and two scores on 14 carries.With the Eagles almost certain to sit Carson Wentz again and Nick Foles probably playing part-time, I’m going with the New England Patriots to get the win and cover the chalk. The Pats probably would like to get some retribution for their Super Bowl loss to the Birds and they’ve got the best quarterback once you get past Brady, Wentz, and Foles.Pick: New England Patriots -2
