Week 2 NFL Picks and Betting Odds

Sports Interaction betting analyst Frank Doyle makes his picks for Week 2 of the NFL season. He was 2-1 last week.  The latest betting odds for each of these games appear below as well. 

Early season can be a great time to make money in NFL betting. In the first few weeks, everybody is adjusting. After a summer of hype, the first real shots are fired in Week 1 and when the smoke clears it's a question of deciding who has exceeded expectations (New Orleans, Green Bay), who has disappointed (Houston, Chicago) and who is just hard to figure out. San Diego, I'm looking at you.

San Diego and New England were disappointing on Monday night, both failing to cover in games that were not expected to be close. They're both favorites again this week, New England at the Jets and San Diego at home against Baltimore.

I think Baltimore +3 with Sports Interaction is a really strong play here and they represent one of my strongest Week 2 NFL picks. Not only did the Chargers struggle against Oakland, but they lost Louis Vasquez, a guard, and their center, Nick Hardwick. The public doesn't usually miss offensive linemen - Philip Rivers will miss those guys more than a little bit when he sees Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata coming for him. Ravens +3 with Sports Interaction is the pick.

Betting the under can be rewarding financially but it can put certain strains on anybody watching the game. Nobody wants to watch three-and-outs for three hours. But Sports Interaction has set the total at 43.5 for the big game on Sunday night, the Giants' visit to Dallas, and that looks high to me.

New York has a ball control offense, a clock-eater, while I don't expect Tony Romo to get much change out of the Giants' defense. This will be a good night to take your girl out to dinner, telling her you much prefer her to football, while knowing you can pay for the night out with your winnings as they duke it out between the hashmarks. Under 43.5 points with Sports Interaction at Arlington is the pick.

Finally, although any handicap bigger than a touchdown should be treated with caution, Minnesota -10 with Sports Interaction at Detroit looks a gimme. The Lions are getting some good ink for scoring 27 points, but that's really just the writers - who are only human, despite evidence to the contrary - being nice to the fat kid in the yard. Detroit is just as rotten as ever. Look at the box scores. Three interceptions from a rookie quarterback. Thirty-three yards rushing. They're doomed. Minnesota -10 with Sports Interaction is the final pick of the week.
