Well, that was interesting, huh?

It would be a large understatement to say that Week 1 of the NFL season was filled with surprises. It featured a team with genuine Super Bowl aspirations like Green Bay being blown out by New Orleans, who were playing their first game in over a decade without Drew Brees on the roster. It also featured a team that many ‘experts’ predicted wouldn’t win a game all season (Houston) winning handily against a division rival that was looking to revitalize under a new Head Coach and QB (Jacksonville). There were two games that required overtime, 11 underdogs who covered the spread and seven games that went Over their predicted Over/Under points total.

Week 2 should be no less intriguing for betting fans, starting with a classic NFC East matchup between Washington and the Giants (+3 on FanDuel) Thursday night. Once Sunday arrives, the games that will pique bettors’ curiosity come in droves. Among the early games, Buffalo (-3.5 on DraftKings) gets a tough divisional matchup after an opening week loss, going into Miami to face a 1-0 Dolphins team. Two big AFC winners in Week 1, Pittsburgh and Las Vegas face off at Heinz Stadium with the Steelers a 5.5-point favorite on BetMGM. Sunday night’s game also features two AFC powerhouses as Kansas City goes on the road to Baltimore to face the Ravens, coming off a short week as a 4-point underdog on DraftKings.
