NFL Bets Blog – Week 2

The purpose of this blog is finding value bets from the Sunday afternoon NFL slate. The Blog is written on Friday so lines and odds are subject to change before kickoff.

Rough Start to the Year (1-2)

Started off 1-2 after a closer than expected match up in Atlanta but only ended down 1 unit overall. Week two began with a great game between the Chiefs and Chargers on Thursday night, that started off slow but really picked up in the second half. I like this weekends slate, there’s quite a few good looking games this weekend that gives us a chance to bounce back. 

 

Colts V. Jaguars, Colts -3 (-110)

One of the biggest shockers last week was the heavily favored Colts tying a Texans team that was expected to be absolute trash. I think the Colts bounce back big time this week against the Jags. Michael Pittman is questionable at the moment but with a run game led by JT they should have no problem killing the clock while putting points on the board. Pittman is something to keep an eye on here but I think the Colts are well equipped on both sides of the ball to cover.

Dolphins V. Ravens, Dolphins +3.5 (-115)

Both teams are coming off fairly assertive wins, with a combined margin of 28 points. Lamar looked good with some deep ball dimes, but he’ll be tested  more this week against a better Miami team. What I’m looking at here is the lack of weapons for the Ravens at the moment who are injury ridden, as always. Miami adding the Cheetah to their receivers gives them one of the faster pairs in the league with Waddle and Hill. They’ll be a much better match up than the Jets and I see them keeping it close if not pulling off the win.

Buccaneers V. Saints, Saints Money Line (+120)

Saints are home dogs and I love home dogs. The biggest factor to watch here will be injuries, mostly with the Bucs. Jones, Evans, and Godwin all left last weeks game at some point with injury. Evans and Jones have been limited in practice if they practiced at all so I wouldn’t count on them playing. The Saints may be without Kamara but they still have slant boy Michael Thomas to rely on while the Bucs may have to rely on some of the back ups to fill some big shoes. Keep an eye on injury reports leading up to Sunday but this is could be a solid divisional win for the Saints.
