Miami Dolphins (+160) @ Baltimore Ravens (-190)
The Dolphins head to Baltimore for the Ravens’ home opener. Both teams took care of business in their Week 1 matchup, but only one team will be able to enter Week 3 undefeated.
While Miami had no trouble with New England in Week 1, there was still plenty of room for improvement. Properly utilizing Tyreek Hill can lead to downfield bombs or easy completions for Waddle, and a better passing game, will allow for a stronger running game — Chase Edmonds had just 25 rushing yards last week.
There are several excellent options for props in this one, but not knowing who Tua will target more, I’m just going to take him to rack up yardage.

New York Jets (+230) @ Cleveland Browns (-260)
Nick Chubb was unbelievable in Week 1; only three times in his career has Chubb rushed for more than 141 yards. The Panthers had no idea what to do with him. If you’ve read any of my other articles this week, you know I’m hot on the Jets’ run defense, and while the Jets may let me down overall, 82.5 is a crazy high prop for any back.
The Browns have shown they’re willing to divide the workload with Kareem Hunt, so even if the Jet’s defense falls flat, there is an excellent chance Chubb won’t see the carries necessary to rack 83 yards. So whether it’s a blowout by the Browns or an upset by the Jets, there are several likely ways this game could go that would not allow Chubb to hit that number.

Chicago Bears (+385) @ Green Bay Packers (-500)
After a gnarly performance against the Bears last year, Aaron Rodgers has made Packers V. Bears must-watch television. While documentation may establish Virginia Halas McCaskey as the Bears’ owner, it’s universally expected that Aaron Rodgers is the true proprietor.
Coming off a terrible Week 1, Rodgers needs a rebound, and there is no better candidate for a one-night stand than the Chicago Bears.
Rodgers threw for 341 yards in his last game against Chicago. In his career, Rodgers has averaged 242 yards verse the Bears. Given Green Bay’s need for a win, bettors can expect a crazy day from their QB.
