  • NFL Betting Tips for Week 2

    The NFL season got underway with an exciting Week 1 for sports handicappers. A concern for many bettors heading into the season was the impact of home field advantage.

    There were eight home favorites and eight home underdogs. The home team went 8-8 SU and 9-7 ATS.

    Will playing at home be of any advantage in 2020? It’s a great question, but what teams - and bettors - should be more concerned with are miscues.

    Both Cleveland and Philadelphia committed three turnovers, missed a field goal, and turned the ball over on downs twice. Both teams lost in Week 1.

    Can Smart Bettors find any value in Week 2?

    49ers @ Jets

    The New York Jets are seven-point home underdogs. Last season, the Jets were 4-1 as a home dog beating Pittsburgh, Dallas, the Raiders, and the Giants. Can they pull off the unthinkable in Week 2?

    Not likely. The Jets lost to Buffalo 27-17 in Week 1. The score appears a lot closer than it actually was. New York scored a meaningless late touchdown. The Jets also gave up 300 passing yards to a quarterback - Josh Allen - who had never thrown for 300-plus.

    The Jets also lost RB Le’Veon Bell to a hamstring injury. Head coach Adam Gase is probably on his way out and having to face the Super Bowl runner-up in Week 2 doesn’t help.

    The Niners were upset by Arizona last week, but all the key pieces are still there. The running game is outstanding and QB Jimmy Garoppolo could throw for half a thousand.

    While it’s hard for west coast teams to travel east and win, my free-pick has San Francisco winning this one and covers. San Francisco -7

    Saints @ Raiders

    The Raiders beat Carolina in Week 1 for the franchise’s first win as the Las Vegas Raiders. Now, it’s time for the first home game in Vegas.

    Unfortunately for head coach Jon Gruden, his first home opponent is Super Bowl favorite New Orleans. The Saints beat Tom Brady and Tampa Bay handily in Week 1.

    One thing that didn’t go so well for Vegas in its first game was the defense. The Raiders had no answer for Christian McCaffrey and Teddy Bridgewater. If they don’t have an answer for Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas, Saints QB Drew Brees is going to eat up the Raiders defense.

    New Orleans will not allow Raiders RB Josh Jacobs to run wild like he did against Carolina. That said, here’s why you back the Saints to cover the seven-point spread.

    The Saints are 4-1 ATS in their last five games. They are 7-2 ATS in their last nine versus the Raiders and the Saints are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games on the road. New Orleans -7

    Jaguars @ Titans

    The trend over the last few years in this AFC South divisional clash has been leaning to the Over. In six of the last nine Jacksonville-Tennessee matchups, the Over has hit at .

    Last week, the Jags pulled a huge upset beating Indianapolis behind QB Garnder Minshew and his 95 percent completion percentage. Jacksonville’s defense was good enough to bend and not break in a 27-20 win over the Colts.

    The Titans got a last-minute field goal to beat Denver on Monday night. Tennessee has beaten Jacksonville the last six times in a row when playing the Jags at home.

    With the spread set at -9.0, we’ll go with the trend and take the Over, which has also hit in 10 of the Titans last 14 games. OVER 42
