Week 2 NFL Vegas Odds: Lines, Totals & Betting Predictions

It’s no secret that the vegas sports books had a rough year compared to normal in the NFL last season. Popular teams like the Patriots and Packers kept covering, while unpopular teams like the Browns and 49ers kept falling short of the number.

Those books got a bit of revenge in Week 1 NFL action. Bettors like to wager on favorites and overs. Well, in the first 13 games through Sunday, only one combination of favorite and over cashed. Favorites went 7-7-1 ATS while the unders held a 10-5 advantage against the overs.

NFL Betting Lines for the Top Games & Week 2 Predictions

Week 2 starts Thursday with the Bengals (-5) hosting the Texans as both teams look to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. These two teams were probably more disappointing than any other last week. The Texans lost 7-29 as 6-point home favorites against the Jaguars, while the Bengals lost 20-0 as 3-point home favorites to the Ravens.

Games we’re looking forward to most Sunday include Steelers (-7) vs. Vikings, Patriots (-6.5) at Saints, Chiefs (-5) vs. Eagles and Cowboys (-1.5) at Broncos. The most anticipated game has to be the Sunday night NFC Championship rematch between Atlanta and Green Bay. The Falcons are currently 2.5-point home favorites.
