Beating the Spread, NFL Week 2: Preview, pointspreads, predictions

NFL Week 2 Preview and Predictions
Publish Date: 09/16/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Hereโ€™s our contribution to the world of picking the weekโ€™s NFL games. All pointspreads are courtesy of , a sponsor of The Grueling Truth Network.

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars (+1.5)
Are the Jaguars finally the contender everybody is waiting for them to be? After last week, I think they might have finally arrived, we will know a lot more after this weekโ€™s game against division rival Tennessee. The Titans lost a tough one last week and will be looking to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. This looks to be a nail biter that will come down to the end of the game. I like Tennessee but not by much.
Prediction: Titans 24, Jaguars 20

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (-8)
I think the Browns are greatly improved and I will take the Browns and the points, but I like the Ravens in a close one.
Prediction: Ravens 20, Browns 17

Buffalo Bills at Carolina Panthers (-7)
The bills won last week but a win over the Jets doesn’t mean a whole lot and the same goes for the Panthers who beat the 49ers. I think Carolina is more talented.
Prediction: Panthers 23, Bills 13

New England Patriots at New Orleans Saints (+6.5)
Both teamsโ€™ defenses were terrible last week and this game will come down to who has the ball last.
Prediction: Patriots 34, Saints 27

Arizona Cardinals at Indianapolis Colts (+7)
I will go with Carson Palmer in this one.
Prediction: Cardinals 31, Colts 13

Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs (-5.5)
This is a great matchup between two teams that looked like contenders last week. This will be a close one.
Prediction: Chiefs 27, Eagles 24

Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers (-6)
The Vikings I think are just a better team and will win this game out right.

Vikings 24, Steelers 17

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7)
Take the Bucs and give the points.
Prediction: Bucs 23, Bears 10

Miami Dolphins at L.A. Chargers (-3.5)
Both teams have a ton of questions to answer.
Prediction: Chargers 20, Dolphins 17

New York Jets at Oakland Raiders (-13)
No contest the Jets don’t have the firepower.
Prediction: Raiders 38, Jets 3

Washington Redskins at L.A. Rams (-2.5)
The Rams win a close one.
Prediction: Rams 27, Redskins 21

Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos (+2.5)
The Broncos defenses is good enough to make this game interesting.
Prediction: Cowboys 20, Broncos 16

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-14)
No hope for the 49ers here.
Prediction: Seahawks 30, 49ers 6

Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons (-3)
I just don’t believe that the Packers secondary is good enough to win this game.
Prediction: Falcons 34, Packers 30

Detroit Lions at New York Giants (-3)
Take the Lions and the points.
Prediction: Lions 27, Giants 30 Download The Grueling Truth app in the iTunes store!
