Before the second Sunday of the 2018 NFL regular season kicks off, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for today’s games. (Click here for NFL Week 2 picks without regard to the spread.)
Here are suggestions when trying to beat the odds. You can find all of today’s NFL betting lines and more via SB Nation. My season record so far is 6-9-1. Let’s get to the picks.
Houston Texans (-2.5) at Tennessee Titans: Deshaun Watson didn’t look so great in Week 1. But even if he doesn’t play well again, I still think the Texans will beat the Titans. Marcus Mariota is dealing with a pinched nerve and apparently we could see more Blaine Gabbert this week. That’s good news for Houston. PICK: Texans -2.5
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (PICK): Given the uncertainty surrounding Aaron Rodgers’ status, this game is off the board entirely in some places. Other outlets have it as a pick ‘em. I don’t love betting against Rodgers but I just don’t know where he’s at health wise right now. And it’s not like he’s going to have the adrenaline going for him taht he had during last week’s comeback. I’ll just go with Minnesota, who looked good in Week 1. PICK: Vikings...
