Picking NFL Week 2 Games Against the Spread

Wait, I’m picking Brandon Weeden on the road?? (Mandatory Credit: David Richard-US PRESSWIRE)

Let’s be real: a lot of people love football because it’s the easiest and funnest sport to gamble on. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Personally, I’m too broke to gamble much, but I sure do watch a lot of football. I figure I should help* my loyal readers out with some gambling advice. Each week I’ll pick four games plus a fifth “Lock of the Week.”

*Help not guaranteed to be actually helpful.

After a not-completely disastrous 2011 gambling season (43-39-4), I’m back in 2012 to “help” you out with your gambling needs. Ordinarily, I’ll pick five games, but since I missed last week, I’ll throw 10 out there for Week 2.

Let’s get right into it.  Here we go:

Browns (+7) over BENGALS

I’m on record as saying I think the Bengals will be a total flop after last season’s rather fluky playoff appearance. They’ll probably win this game, but seven points? I’m thinking 13-10 in a game NFL Films immediately buries deep in its archives.

PATRIOTS (-14) over Cardinals

Kevin Kolb on the road? No thanks. Patriots cruise.

SEAHAWKS (+3) over Cowboys

I love this pick. The Seahawks are really good at home. The Cowboys are the Cowboys…I can’t imagine we are getting two great road performances at home from them.

Ravens (+2) over EAGLES

Wait, the Eagles are FAVORED in this game? Did anyone watch Week 1?

GIANTS (-7) over Buccaneers

The Giants aren’t starting 0-2. Eli Manning will put on a clinic in this one.

Raiders (-2.5) over DOLPHINS

The Raiders aren’t as a bad as they looked in Week 1…but Ryan Tannehill sure is. The Dolphins offense might end up being historically bad.

STEELERS (-5) over Jets

Now that Mark Sanchez is not playing the Bills, you can expect him to start looking like Mark Sanchez again.

49ERS (-7) over Lions

The 49ers are really, really good. This could wind up being a whoopin’.

Redskins (-3.5) over RAMS

I’ve been in love with RG3 since I saw him as a skinny freshman running for his life behind a terrible O-line at Baylor. He’s going to cost me a lot of money as a pro, because I’m going to pick him 90% of the time.

And now…


*Note: don’t take the word “Lock” too seriously.

BILLS (-3) over Chiefs

Both teams really need this one, and I think the Bills are a better team. I hope.

Last Week: N/A

Overall: 0-0-0

Lock of the Week: 0-0
Last season: 43-39-4 (Locks: 13-7)
