NFL Week 2 predictions: Picks, point spreads, betting lines for each game

Week 2 of the NFL 2018 season has arrived!

It is officially time to dive weekly in point spreads and betting lines in the sport. That means picks and predictions for the entire slate.

With a new week we have the following things: fantasy parties, cheering with your favorite team and of course taking a look at the spreads to ensure that you are on the right side of every outcome.

Consider this as a one-stop-shop guide to correctly select each (or at least the majority) game.

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals (-1)

Thursday, September 13, 8:20 pm Est

One of these teams is ready to make a 2-0 start and take 10 days of rest in week 3. That could be the springboard to a full year of struggle for the postseason & # 39; The defense of Baltimore is the owner and slows down Joe Mixon and A.J. Green enough. Justin Tucker wins with a late field goal. MY PICK: Ravens.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (-5.5)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

What a terrible first week for the Falcons. Added to a Week 1 loss for the Eagles: Prolonged injury to defensive starters Keanu Neal and Deion Jones. There is still enough in the front to avoid a mistake in the Carolina team, but the Falcons suddenly look very vulnerable. MY PICK: Falcons.

Indianapolis Colts at Washington Redskins (-5.5)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

Alex Smith remains the most underestimated quarterback in the NFL. Washington, coming home for his opener, brings the better and offensive and defensive line in this game. Place the points. MY PICK: Redskins.

Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (-1)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

Despair so early? For the loser of this game it exists with a 0-2 record. The Titans are lucky Marcus Mariota is not seriously injured. Now a bigger concern: stopping a talented team from Houston. The Titans suffer the impact of a seven-hour football match last Sunday, are slow and can not recover. MY PICK: Texans.

Philadelphia Eagles (-3) in Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

When watching the attack of Tampa Bay on the Saints it was an eye-opening, but here comes the reason why the Eagles will do well on Sunday: 10 days of rest, more practice time for Nick Foles, injuries over the defense line of Tampa Bay and a much better pass storm than New Orleans presented to Ryan Fitzpatrick. MY PICK: Eagles.

Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

Add me up as a faith from Patrick Mahomes. In fact, we look at the second most talented quarterback (only behind Michael Vick) that Andy Reid has ever had. Yes, Mahomes is more talented than Donovan McNabb. Mahomes will stage a show, but Pittsburgh bounces back home after a one-week draw. MY PICK: Steelers.

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (-3)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

Do not worry, fans of Jets. This time the quarterback is the real deal. Unlike Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, Sam Darnold is the real deal. Jets-dolphin fights always seem to follow the opposite direction that the consensus thinks, but the tide is about to turn. The Jets have real talent on both sides of the ball and could be a secret team this year. MY PICK: Jets.

Los Angeles Chargers (-7.5) at Buffalo Bills

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

Welcome to the NFL, Josh Allen! Your first assignment: an angry, 0-1 Chargers team that was a few missed pieces, away from placing almost 40 points on the board last week. MY PICK: chargers.

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-1)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

What's great for the NFL: Aaron Rodgers, on one leg, winning games. What's less-than-great for the Packers this week: Aaron Rodgers, on one leg, is trying to prevent a cruel Vikings from switching the hurry. MY PICK: Vikings.

Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints (-8.5)

Sunday, September 16, 13:00 Est

For the first time in a long time there is real hope in Cleveland. This is especially true for the defending side of the ball with Myles Garrett in front. The Browns win a number of games this year and can be an exciting team on both sides later this season when Baker Mayfield takes over the quarterback. This week will not be that week. MY PICK: saints.

Detroit Lions in San Francisco 49ers (-5.5)

Sunday, September 16, 16.05 hours Est

Every year a loss of week 1 is better than others. This year, this distinction belongs to the Lions. Losing at home is one thing, but being blown out by the Jets is another. Expect the 49ers to be able to shift into gear at home. MY PICK: 49ers.

Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams (-12.5)

Sunday, September 16, 16:25 pm Est

This is a gigantic line, but there is a huge gap in talent between these teams. And Sean McVay seems to me the type of coach that will score. MY PICK: Rams.

New England Patriots (-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars

Sunday, September 16, 16:25 pm Est

Put your popcorn ready for this, people. Jacksonville & # 39; s defense will play in a big way and can remove any non-Rob Gronkowski weapon from New England. If the patriots' defense had not improved so much, I would go with the home team. MY TIME: Patriots.

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (-5.5)

Sunday, September 16, 16:25 pm Est

One of the hardest games on the whole week. Oakland can be bad, but I am not a big supporter of this Broncos team. In a throw-game, pick up the points. MY PICK: Raiders.

NFL power rankings

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-3)

Sunday, September 16, 8:20 pm Est

A gut check game in Dallas. The loser will be 0-2 and possibly two matches back from the Eagles and Redskins in the NFC East. Both groups are faulty, but the Giants' weapons make an extra turn too late. MY PICK: Giants.

Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears (-3.5)

Monday, September 17, 20:15 pm Est

Chicago looked great last week and Seattle is on its way for the second time to start the year. Nevertheless, I can not refuse more than three points with the better quarterback in the matchup. MY TIME: Seahawks.

Last week: 8-7-1

Season: 8-7-1
