NFL Week 2 Betting Overview

NFL Week 1 parlay pick

Week 1 was one of the craziest and strangest weekends of NFL football in a long time. There were upsets throughout the entire day, and a couple of games came down to multiple missed field goals to decide a winner.

Betting favorites struggled mightily in Week 1, and it makes it look like this could be a year full of upsets throughout the league. There are a number of good matchups to look at on the Week 2 NFL schedule, and it could provide some good betting options.

See all of our NFL Parlay picks and bet the one you like best.

If you want to try your luck in Week 2, here are four of the best games to focus on.

New York Jets at Cleveland Browns (-6.5)

The first game to take a close look at will take place in Cleveland as the Browns host the New York Jets. Cleveland was able to survive and pick up a win in Week 1, while the New York Jets looked like a complete disaster at times.

If the Jets had Zach Wilson ready to go at the quarterback position, then this could potentially be an upset pick. The Browns had an emotional win against former quarterback Baker Mayfield, but now they return home as a favorite.

Take the Browns -6.5, as they are able to get enough stops to come away with a convincing win in this one.

Cincinnati Bengals -7.0 at Dallas Cowboys

A pair of 0-1 teams meet up in Dallas on Sunday as the Cowboys host the Cincinnati Bengals. It was a rough season opener for each of these teams, but it looks like things could go from bad to worse for the home team in this one.

Dallas was already a team with question marks heading into the 2022 season, but an injury to quarterback Dak Prescott will make things even worse. The Cowboys failed to score a touchdown in Week 1, and it’s hard to see them getting one in this NFL game as well.

Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow was wildly inconsistent in the season opener as he had a big day, but he also turned the ball over a ton. Burrow has to limit his mistakes in this game, but it ultimately shouldn’t matter much in the end.

Take the Bengals -7.0 over the Cowboys as this game could end up being a rou.

Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams (-10.0)

The Los Angeles Rams struggled in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, and they will be looking to make amends in Week 2. That’s not good news for the Atlanta Falcons, as they are already a team that is set to struggle this season.

The Falcons were much more competitive than most thought in a loss to the New Orleans Saints, but they still struggled to make winning plays. Atlanta won’t find the same offensive success in this NFL game, and they don’t have a good defense.

Don’t be surprised to see the Rams light it up on Sunday as they roll to a blowout win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Chicago Bears +10.0 at Green Bay Packers

After a terrible offensive start to the season for the Green Bay Packers, the questions are already coming about this offense. Aaron Rodgers has a bunch of young receivers surrounding him, and that group struggled mightily in the season opener.

Rodgers has owned the Chicago Bears throughout this career, but this Chicago team now has a new head coach leading the way. This is a pretty big spread on Sunday Night Football, and it could be a NFL game to watch.

It’s hard to imagine the Bears finding a way to beat the Packers, but you can’t pass up on the free 10 points.
