    NFL odds Week 2: Opening lines, line movement
    Patrick Everson

    Russell Wilson and the Seahawks notched a 38-25 victory at Atlanta in Week 1. The SuperBook then opened Seattle -3.5 and quickly moved to -4 against visiting New England in Week 2.

    NFL Week 1 is almost in the books, with NFL Week 2 odds posted and already getting some attention. Among the marquee matchups, the New England Patriots travel to face the Seattle Seahawks, and the Las Vegas Raiders open their brand-new stadium – albeit with no fans – against the New Orleans Saints in the Monday night game.

    The SuperBook at Westgate provided insights on NFL Week 2 opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting. Covers will update this report with NFL sharp picks vs. public bets and line movement throughout the week.

    These are the current NFL Week 2 odds, as of September 13. Click on each matchup in the table below to get updated in-depth information on the opening lines, sharp money, public betting, and odds movement as we get closer to kickoff.



    Bengals at Browns

    Opening line
    Browns -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened the Browns -6.5, down from a look-ahead number (last week) of -7.5, and we are now at -6," SuperBook executive director John Murray said Sunday night. "Cleveland didn't look good (at Baltimore), and there’s going to be a lot of pressure on Baker Mayfield to perform in the next few weeks. I don't know what we did to deserve this gem in prime time in Week 2." The last part of that comment was dripping with sarcasm, to be sure.


    Rams at Eagles

    Opening line
    Eagles -2.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    Murray said there was no early movement on this game, which was pulled off the board once the Cowboys-Rams game began Sunday night. It will go back up Monday morning.
    "Philadelphia is a very banged-up team with a decimated offensive line," Murray said, pointing specifically to right tackle Lane Johnson (ankle). "It's hard to recommend a play in this game without knowing the status of Johnson."


    Panthers at Buccaneers odds

    Opening line
    Buccaneers -8, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Broncos at Steelers

    Opening line
    Steelers -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Falcons at Cowboys

    Opening line
    Cowboys -7, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    This line was only up Sunday until the Rams-Cowboys game kicked off, and there was no movement at The SuperBook. The line will go back up Monday morning.


    49ers at Jets

    Opening line
    Jets +6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Bills at Dolphins

    Opening line
    Dolphins +4, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Vikings at Colts

    Opening line
    Colts -3, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Lions at Packers

    Opening line
    Packers -5.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    The Packers were a big public play in Week 1 and proved deserving in a 43-34 road victory over Minnesota. But there was no line movement on the Lions-Packers game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Giants at Bears

    Opening line
    Bears -5.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Jaguars at Titans

    Opening line
    Titans -10, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement on this game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Washington at Cardinals

    Opening line
    Cardinals -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    Although Arizona posted an impressive Week 1 win at defending NFC champion San Francisco, there was no line movement on this Week 2 game Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Ravens at Texans

    Opening line
    Ravens -6, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened -6 and moved quickly to -6.5. No point in waiting," Murray said of a quick move at The SuperBook. "The public will be all over the Ravens in this game, after watching both of these teams play in Week 1. The Texans may be the biggest need of the week for sportsbooks next Sunday in the early games."


    Chiefs at Chargers

    Opening line
    Chiefs -7, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    Kansas City looked good in a 34-20 Thursday night home win over Houston. Los Angeles didn't look that good in barely beating host Cincinnati 16-13 Sunday. So it was no surprise Sunday night to see the Chiefs quickly move to -7.5 for this AFC West clash.


    Patriots at Seahawks

    Opening line
    Seahawks -3.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened Seahawks -3.5 and moved quickly to -4," Murray said of a Sunday night uptick at The SuperBook. "Seattle looked very potent offensively (at Atlanta). Mr. Unlimited Russell Wilson looked like an MVP. This will be a huge test for Cam Newton. The public will be on the Seahawks, and the books will be rooting for another 'dog on Sunday night."


    Saints at Raiders

    Opening line
    +4.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened Saints -4.5 and moved quickly to -5.5," Murray said. "It pains me to talk about this game, thinking about how great it could’ve been for this city. What an event that would’ve been at the new stadium. It will still be a huge handle game, with the public all over the Saints on the road."

    NFL betting tips for Week 2: Bet Now or Bet Later
    Jason Logan

    Cam Newton looked great in his debut as the New England Patriots QB, including 75 yards rushing and two touchdowns in a Week 1 win over the Miami Dolphins.

    I’m a big fan of Week 2. The NFL betting markets overreact to one week of results and there are a lot of extra points hanging around for the picking.

    The best NFL betting strategy is to spot those overreactions early and plan your attack: do you grab the number now or wait it out and bet later? It all comes down to your opinion on the spread or total.

    If you’re scouring the NFL Week 2 odds, these are our NFL betting tips for the best games to bet now and later.

    Atlanta Falcons (+6.5) vs Dallas Cowboys: Bet Now

    The freshest game in the minds of NFL bettors when the Week 2 odds hit the board is the Sunday Night Football result. And this past Sunday night, we saw the Dallas Cowboys stacked offense flounder for only 17 points and come up short with the game on the line in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

    The Week 2 spread opened Dallas as high as -7 hosting the Atlanta Falcons (and there are still some sevens out there as of Monday morning) but has started to drop to -6.5, with early play on the Falcons. The Cowboys’ loss in L.A. as well as injuries to key contributors on both sides of the ball is influencing that action.

    Atlanta, on the other hand, fell to Seattle 38-25 in Week 1 but still posted 450 yards through the air — a stat that should make Dallas’ shaky pass defense very nervous. If you like the road underdog in this 1 p.m. ET matchup, get the Falcons now at +7 or +6.5 before it dips to six.


    Buffalo Bills vs Miami Dolphins (+5.5): Bet Later

    This spread opened as low as Buffalo Bills -5, with books hanging a dead number and allowing early action to dictate the move to the key number. That initial money pushed the spread to Buffalo -5.5 and will likely go to -6 very quickly.

    The Bills’ 2020 debut wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. They raced out to a 21-3 halftime lead over the New York Jets before getting outscored 14-6 in the final 30 minutes, but the offense looks like a capable complement to an already-stingy stop unit.

    The Miami Dolphins fell in Foxborough to the new-look New England Patriots but weren’t blown away by any means. Miami was held back by three interceptions from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Tua time?) and made New England bettors sweat until the final five minutes. If you’re getting down on the Dolphins, wait and see if this gets to +6 or higher.


    New England Patriots vs Seattle Seahawks (Over 44): Bet Now

    The Seattle Seahawks just walked into Hot-lanta and outscored the Falcons on their fast home track, which is not an easy feat. Seattle posted 38 points with Russell Wilson airing it out for 322 yards to a bevy of receiving options while keeping the defense guessing with a versatile rushing corps.

    Cam Newton was the engine behind the Patriots in Week 1, giving New England fans 75 yards and two scores on the ground to go along with a steady day dropping back. Granted, those results came against Miami and the Seahawks defense is a tougher task, but we expect the Pats offense to continue to grow and gain traction.

    This Over/Under opened at 44 points and outside of some tinkering with the juice, it’s staying there as of Monday morning. However, with the "Yes we Cam" headlines flooding the NFL news wires and the Seahawks scoring 38 points (as well as no 12th Man advantage in CenturyLink in Week 2), I expect money to show on the Over. Grab the Over 44 points now before this total steps off the key number.


    Baltimore Ravens vs Houston Texans (Over 52.5): Bet Later

    This Over/Under was as big as 54.5 points when select books posted lookahead lines for Week 2 back in the spring. The true Week 2 opener went up at 53 points Sunday night, and immediate money took the Under and slimmed the total to 52.5.

    The Houston Texans' offense looked lost for the majority of its season opener versus Kansas City last Thursday, and it was obvious Deshaun Watson missed having DeAndre Hopkins as a failsafe. But, the Texans have had that mini-bye to tighten the bolts and should show better with the football at home in Week 2.

    The Baltimore Ravens showed zero signs of rust in its Week 1 walkthrough versus Cleveland. The Ravens scored 38 points and limited the Browns to only six, which was a combo of solid defense from Baltimore and Cleveland trying out a new system for the first time.

    Plenty of books have 52.5 Over/Under on the board and have already discounted the juice on the Over to slow the early play on the Under. If you predict plenty of offense for this 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, be patient and see how low it will go.

    NFL Week 2 Injuries, Weather
    Patrick Everson

    49ers star tight end George Kittle suffered a sprained left knee in a Week 1 loss to Arizona. His status for Week 2 against the New York Jets is currently up in the air.

    NFL Week 1 is in the rearview mirror, NFL Week 2 odds are on the board, and several betting factors are already in play. Maybe a key player got dinged up last weekend, or public opinion is forming around a convincing Week 1 winner.

    This week’s NFL Cheat Sheet will serve as one-stop shopping for all that information and more.

    Week 2 Injuries

    New York Jets:
    Running back Le’Veon Bell will be out this week at home against the 49ers, and perhaps longer, with a hamstring injury suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Bills. The SuperBook at Westgate has New York a 6.5-point home underdog to San Francisco.

    San Francisco 49ers:
    Star tight end George Kittle has a sprained left knee, the team announced Monday. More will be known on Kittle’s status by midweek, but it wasn’t affecting the line much at The SuperBook at Westgate. The 49ers opened -6.5 at the Jets and bounced to -7 a couple of times, then back to -6.5.

    New Orleans Saints:
    Wideout Michael Thomas suffered a high ankle injury against the Buccaneers, but early indications are that he’ll be OK for Week 2 at the Raiders. Bettors aren’t concerned, having already helped push the Saints from -4.5 to -6 at The SuperBook.

    Indianapolis Colts:
    Running back Marlon Mack tore his Achilles in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to Jacksonville, and he is done for the season. Whatever impact Mack’s absence has on the line was factored into The SuperBook’s opening number of -3, which stuck after going up Sunday night.

    Cleveland Browns:
    Rookie left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. (leg) is questionable for Thursday’s home game against the Bengals, while tight end David Njoku was place on the injured reserve with a sprained left knee. The Browns opened -6.5 at The SuperBook and quickly dropped to -6.

    Week 2 Weather

    Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Thunderstorms are possible Sunday afternoon in Tampa, with a 40 percent chance, with north/northeast winds of 10-20 mph. SuperBook oddsmakers opened the total at 49 and left it there through Monday.

    Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins: As in Tampa, there’s a 40 percent chance of afternoon rain in Miami on Sunday. The total, though, is steady at 41.5 at The SuperBook.

    The Biggest Disappointment of the Week

    It happens. You'll see that guy in the corner of the bar or at the sportsbook in utter agony. Well, in normal non-COVID times, anyway. He was just buying strangers shots, whooping it up...then the bottom drops out. He likely bet a sizeable amount on a 1 o'clock game, already checked his game off as a win and has called the guy or hit the window or app to bet on the late-afternoon window of games a little more fervently than normal. Then, he checks the score. It goes downhill in a hurry.

    I'll be honest. I played the Chicago Bears +3 Sunday on the road against the Detroit Lions solely on the fact WR Kenny Golladay was sidelined, and I figured the boys in silver and Honolulu blue would have a more ground-based attack. And it's never good to try and run into the teeth of the Bears defense, their strongest unit. Well, Detroit was running at will. RB Adrian Peterson, who was signed less than a week ago after being released from the Washington Football Team. He gobbled up 93 yards, or 6.6 yards per carry, and the Lions ran for 138 yards, a touchdown and 4.8 yards per tote. Anyway, through 45 minutes, the Lions led 23-6 and I was the opposite of that guy at the bar. At about 3:20 p.m. ET, I wrote this one off as my being on the wrong side, and was ready to move along. Then, QB Mitchell Trubisky did something he rarely ever does. He was effective in the fourth quarter, tossing three touchdowns to help the visitors outscore the Lions 21-0 in the final quarter, including 14 points in the final 2:58. Final score, Chicago 27-23. I'll take it.

    Total Recall

    Week 1 was difficult to figure heading into action, as the normal pomp and circumstance of opening day across the National Football League was a bit muted during this COVID era. We saw a smattering of fans allowed to attend the Thursday Night Football game between the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs. In the Sunday slate of games, only the Jacksonville Jaguars allowed fans in for their home game against the Indianapolis Colts. The normal places where fans make a huge difference with their noise did not affect sides or totals. But overall the action was good, and we had some pretty decent football, all things considered. Remember, there were no preseason games, so this was the first game action for a lot of these teams since last winter.

    The lowest total on the board, and the only one in the 30's, was the AFC East tussle between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills at New Era Field. If you were an over bettor, you liked the fast start, as the Bills tossed up a 14-0 lead after 15 minutes, and it was 21-3 at halftime. We had a single-digit number on the board in the third quarter, and the fourth quarter probably should have, too. However, the Jets scored a 2-yard rushing touchdown with just :54 left in regulation to flip the total from under to over. Ouch.

    The highest total for Sunday's slate of games was the Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Falcons (49.5) game, which saw a total of 63 points. There were just 26 points on the board at halftime, and the total really could have gone either way. The total was stuck at 49 from 9:35 of the fourth quarter to 3:45 when Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde saved the day with a 1-yard touchdown plunge. Falcons WR Calvin Ridley dealt a crushing blow to under teaser bettors with a 7-yard scoring reception with just :33 remaining.

    The Thursday night game barely inched 'over', and depending on when the wager was placed, the 'under' hit. We'll call it an over because it closed at 53.5. The Sunday Night game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams at the pristine SoFi Stadium near LAX was a defensive battle with just 37 total points and a 51-point total on the board. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants in the early MNF battle, and the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos in the late-night MNF affair, each went under. During the early going, the 'over' is just 1-3 (25.0%) in four primetime games.

    In 2019, the 'over' was just 17-31-1 (35.4%) during the primetime schedule, a stark change from the previous six-year span. The over was ahead of the under in five of the six seasons from 2013-18, including an amazing 66.0% (33-17) clip in 2014.

    Looking Ahead to Week 2

    Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns (Thursday, 8:20 p.m. ET)


    The Bengals lost a heartbreaker at home against the Los Angeles Chargers, 16-13, easily hitting the 'under'. Rookie QB Joe Burrow was driving them for a potential winning touchdown drive. They faltered, and had to settle for a field goal to force overtime, but PK Randy Bullock appeared to pull up lame on the attempt and he shanked the kick, leaving the Bengals still in search of their first win since the 2018 season.

    The Browns were trampled 38-6 by the Baltimore Ravens on the road. Cleveland's lack of offense also helped the under connect in their game. While the under is 5-1-1 in the past seven meetings between these rivals in Cleveland, the over is 4-0-1 in the previous five games overall in the series.

    Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

    The Panthers hit the over in 11 of their 16 games in 2019, while the Buccaneers led the NFL with 12 over results in 16 regular-season games. Those two teams hook up in 'Tompa Bay' next week, and both teams will be ornery. The Panthers fell 34-30 on their home field to the Las Vegas Raiders, as new head coach Matt Rhule went for it on fourth and inches late in the game, utilizing his fullback rather than RB Christian McCaffrey. The latter became just the third player in NFL history to run for at least 1,000 yards and post 1,000 receiving yards in a single season. Instead, Rhule chose to gain the tough yards with FB Alex Armah, who entered the game with 15 career carries and 26 yards in his first 41 NFL games. Yeah, the fans in Charlotte are wishing Riverboat Ron Rivera was back.

    The Bucs, meanwhile, were manhandled by the New Orleans Saints 34-23. They didn't grab the cover, but the Bucs hit the over. Better times will be ahead. The Panthers have hit the number in six of their past seven in the shadows of the Pirate Ship at the Ray Jay, with the road team going 9-3 ATS in the past 12 overall in this series. The under is 6-2 in the past eight meetings overall.

    Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET)

    The Bills were tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers with 12 under results in 16 regular-season games, leading the NFL in 2019. So that's what made their Week 1 over result against the New York Jets all the more surprising. The Dolphins hit the under, and they failed to cover. But at least they weren't boatraced like last season in Week 1, when Baltimore came to town and crowned them 59-10.

    Anyway, the over is 8-2 in the past 10 meetings in this AFC East rivalry, with the favorite going 5-1 ATS in the previous six installments.

    New Orleans Saints at Las Vegas Raiders (Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET)

    This is actually a highly-anticipated Monday night game, a rarity in the series lately. New Orleans won their game, and Las Vegas won its road contest as well. While there will be no fans in attendance at the palacial Allegiant Stadium off of Interstate 15 in Las Vegas, the Raiders will make their Nevada debut. The Saints are just 2-5 ATS in their past seven appearances on Monday Night Football, with the over going 5-2 in those games. Conversely, the Raiders are 4-1-1 ATS in the past six MNF showings, and the under is a perfect 4-0 in their past four appearances on MNF.

    Hot & Not Report - Week 2

    NFL Week 2 Betting Angles

    Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books now, and there were some interesting results across the board.

    History suggests there are some loose conclusions we can come to going forward into this week and the NFL futures market based on Week 1's results, and I'll get to that in a minute.

    It was nice to see that last week's “Hot” trend continued to stay that way, as that 18-4-1 SU run by playoff vs non-playoff teams coming into this year ending up going 5-2 SU again this year with the late Monday game still pending.

    But it's all about staying ahead of the game in this industry and as Week 2 always gets hyped up for being “overreaction” week, in that good or bad starts for any particular team shouldn't be too concerning long term, historically there isn't a whole lot of truth to that at least in terms of teams that did lose in Week 1.

    Who's Hot

    Backing Week 2 underdogs against a favorite that lost SU in Week 1 is 14-7 ATS the past three seasons, including 5-1 ATS a season ago.


    You'll hear time and time again this week that one poor showing in Week 1 doesn't mean the sky is falling on that specific organization, and in a general sense that is true.

    There is still 15 games in the year to make up for that one defeat, but if those teams are a 'chalk' in Week 2, I wouldn't want to be laying any wood with them.

    Week 2 underdogs that are playing against a favored 0-1 SU team went 5-1 ATS a season ago, and has not posted a losing record in any of the three most recent seasons.

    It was 5-1 ATS in 2019 with Tampa, Seattle, San Francisco, Jacksonville, and Denver all covering their underdog lines and three of those five won the game outright. The lone outlier? Cleveland's 23-3 win as road chalk against the New York Jets last year.

    Furthermore, within that 14-7 ATS run for these Week 2 underdogs vs an 0-1 SU team, not one of those years has posted a losing record. It went 5-1 ATS last year, 4-4 ATS in 2018, and 5-2 ATS in 2017. Not a bad blind system to at least begin your handicapping with this week.

    So who does it apply to in Week 2?

    Bengals
    Rams
    Jets
    Vikings
    Falcons
    Panthers
    Broncos
    Jaguars

    It starts with the Cincinnati Bengals catching +6 in Cleveland on Thursday Night Football after the Browns got beat down in Baltimore on Sunday.

    From there, at least based on current lines from Draft Kings, it would suggest plays on the LA Rams (+1) vs Philadelphia, the NY Jets (+7) vs San Francisco, Minnesota (+3) vs Indianapolis, Atlanta (+5) vs Dallas, Carolina (+9) vs Tampa Bay, and potentially Denver (+6.5) vs Pittsburgh and Jacksonville (+10.5) vs Tennessee should the Steelers and Titans lose on MNF.

    That's quite the card build already for those that would prefer to follow. Three years is far from a great sample size though, as it never hurts to simply use these things as support for your own weekly methods.


    Who's Not

    Since realignment in 2002, only 8 teams (of 36) have gone on to make the Super Bowl that year after starting out 0-1 SU


    For much of the lead-up into the year we heard a lot about Tampa Bay and Dallas getting so much love for Super Bowl futures, if this history is any indication, those tickets may want to start to be ripped up.

    Look, there is a lot of football left, and of those 8 teams to make a Super Bowl after starting the year 0-1 SU, four of them did end up hosting the Lombardi Trophy. Problem with that is they were only two specific franchises – New England (2003, 2014) and the New York Giants (2007 and 2011).

    With quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay this season, all those Bucs futures may have a bit more hope then futures on other 0-1 SU teams – including my own on the Minnesota Vikings to win the NFC – but it's still a severe uphill battle against history in that regard.

    The funny thing about those four seasons with the Patriots and Giants winning those Super Bowls after starting out 0-1 SU is that all four of those Super Bowls had some wild finishes to them.

    New England's two victories in those years came thanks to a tie-breaking FG with 4 seconds left over Carolina, and them picking off Seattle's 1-yard pass in that 2014 shocker. The Giants two wins came over New England and I probably don't need to get into those finishes with the wild catches David Tyree and Mario Manningham made late in those contests.

    Needless to say, had we had those four games finished just slightly differently, this trend would be sitting at 100% in that no 0-1 SU team has won the Super Bowl that year.

    So how is this actionable?

    You can look at the flip side of this and say that 28 of the last 36 teams to be involved in the Super Bowl did so after starting that season 1-0 SU. I'm not going to list all the teams that won this week, but if you are a big believer in history, and like to get down on some futures tickets – to win conference or Super Bowl – you probably want to limit your choices to those 16 squads.

    The odds on those teams probably took a slight hit (as of now) after starting out with a win, but this is something to keep in mind long down the road. Futures price shopping every week can be done if you keep that list of the 16 teams that started the year 1-0 SU handy.

    Bengals vs. Browns Week 2 Odds, Preview
    Matt Blunt

    Week 2 of the NFL season gets going with a divisional battle in the AFC North between the Bengals and Browns. Both teams are looking for substantial improvements this year after going through tough 2019 campaigns, and both sides can't feel too good about how they opened up the 2020 season.

    In Cleveland's case, the Browns continue to be the way better in their own minds then they are on the football field, as they got blasted by Baltimore 38-6. The Browns didn't score a single point in the final three quarters of that football game, as Cleveland did what Cleveland always does; continues to shoot themselves in the foot.

    Fumbles lost, thrown picks, and a missed field goal all made an appearance in the calamity of errors the Browns dealt with on Sunday, and if this team ever wants the world to see just how good they believe they are in their own heads, crap like that has to get cleaned up in a hurry.

    Cincinnati wasn't without their own miscues in their 16-13 loss to the Chargers, a game in all likelihood they should have won. Kicker Randy Bullock missed a chip shot FG to tie at the end of the game as he blew out something in his leg on the approach, and that was after the Bengals thought they had a game-winning TD already.

    But wide receiver AJ Green's catch in the front corner of the end zone was called back for being a push-off, as #1 overall pick quarterback Joe Burrow got his first, first-hand experience as to why this team is un-affectionately known as the Bungals.

    Burrow did have plenty of good moments in that first career start though, and at least after one week it does look like his future should be bright in this league.

    But it's still only one week though, and now Burrow is in that dreaded spot all rookie QB's must endure – their first road start in the NFL.

    There will be some fans in the “Dog Pound” for this Cleveland home game, but I would also venture a guess that the usual notion of basically auto-fading rookie QB's in their first road start probably isn't nearly as strong this season with empty stadiums.

    Handicapping the Total

    Thursday Night Football games off a short week are always going to get plenty of noise about backing 'unders' with the idea behind it being the quality of play will be suspect with such little prep and recovery time. For the most part in recent years, looking low on totals for Thursday games tends to be a good place to start, and after these two teams combined to score just 19 total points in their respective Week 1 contests, we've already seen plenty of 'under' support for this game.

    The total opened up as high as 46 in some spots, before instantly getting bet low and reaching it's current price of 43.5 basically by Monday afternoon. That's definitely a drop to be aware of.

    But in this particular case, I'm not sure I fully agree with it. Yes, going against the majority consensus for this game specifically and TNF in general on the 'under' can be troubling, but when I envision these two teams squaring off, I see a game with two young QB's not being gun shy in the slightest, probably with a costly turnover or two thrown in for both sides. Both offenses understand that they've got to be much better in executing on offense, and neither the Bengals nor Browns defenses are likely to provide a tremendous amount of resistance.

    Cleveland may have gotten smoked in Baltimore last week, but they did finish the game with 20 made 1st downs (to Baltimore's 23), and had 31 more rushing yards than Baltimore. You know that Ravens team that's got a spectacular rusher under center and had a game script to where running the ball late to drain the clock was readily available to them.

    Moving the ball wasn't the issue for Cleveland there, it was protecting the football, penalty issues and making the most of their opportunities that ultimately made that box score look much worse than it probably should have. The Chargers rushed for 155 yards on 39 attempts against the Bengals last week, so there is plenty of yardage to be gained on the ground for Cleveland. If Baker Mayfield can mix that up with some timely connections in the passing game, moving the ball up and down the field against Cincinnati shouldn't be a huge problem. The Chargers were horrible themselves in converting red zone opportunities into TD's last week vs Cincy, but they did have three chances to do so.

    At the same time, Burrow and the Bengals attack showed flashes of brilliance during a few drives only to have them stall in the worst ways. There was a shovel pass INT that Burrow threw in the red zone in the 2nd half of the game, and the ending has already been talked about. Baltimore gashed Cleveland's secondary with a strong passing attack – Lamar Jackson went 20-for-25 for 275 yards and 3 TD's – so there should be that blueprint available to the Burrow and the Bengals offense to find success here.

    Head-to-Head History

    Dec. 29, 2019 - Cincinnati 33 vs. Cleveland 23, Bengals +2.5, Over 44
    Dec. 8, 2019 - Cleveland 27 vs. Cincinnati 19, Browns -6.5, Over 43.5
    Dec. 23, 2018 - Cleveland 26 vs. Cincinnati 18, Browns -10, Push 44
    Nov. 25, 2018 - Cleveland 35 at Cincinnati 20, Pick 'em, Over 46

    Finally, we can't forget about these two franchises being perpetual basement dwellers in this division the past few years and the fact that when they do meet up to play one another in what both sides have to view as highly “winnable” games, we've often seen points.

    The last five meetings between these two have gone 4-0-1 O/U in recent years, with the last three games all having closing totals in a very similar range (44, 43, 44). There is no doubt in my mind that oddsmakers had this recent run of Bengals/Browns game in mind when they opened the number in the 45.5/46 range, but the knee jerk/hot take reaction on a week-to-week basis that is otherwise known as the NFL betting market each year made sure their voice was heard early in dropping this line to where it currently sits.

    Therefore, it's only the high side of this number I can look at now, as both QB's know they've got something to prove right now, and I expect both to embrace a duel if it does indeed turn out that way.

    Handicapping the Side

    The side is something that is easier to pass on this week, if for nothing else than the notion that it's easy to figure these QB's/teams will make a costly mistake at some point, but pinpointing on who or which team it will be makes it a quite passable option.

    If forced to choose a side, I would be grabbing the points with the Bengals, as Burrow doesn't have all the baggage that Bengals teams in the past have had, nor anywhere near the baggage that Baker Mayfield and this current Browns core currently have.

    Not to mention that Cincinnati does fit into this scenario I brought up earlier this week where they are catching points against an 0-1 SU favorite. I'm not entirely sure the Browns should be laying nearly a TD against anyone in 2020 – at least until they prove they can come anywhere close to all that smoke they blew up the world's ass last summer during their hype tour.

    However, it's still that dreaded “rookie QB in first road start” that I can't be thrilled about bucking if I were to have a Bengals ATS ticket in my pocket, so the side is an all-around pass, at least before kick-off. There could easily be in-game betting scenarios that pop up where much better numbers arise on both sides.

    It looks like Cam Newton and the New England Patriots will be at full strength against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.

    Patriots wide receivers Julian Edelman (knee) and N'Keal Harry (shoulder) are both expected to play, a source tells NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

    Both Edelman and Harry had five receptions in last Sunday's victory over the Miami Dolphins.

    Other injury news we're keeping an eye on ahead of Sunday's Week 2 games:


    Atlanta Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews (knee) is listed as questionable, but he is expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys, a source tells Rapoport.
    Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (neck), his status is much more up in the air. Dallas will make a determination Sunday, but Smith must improve a great deal to get on the field, per Rapoport.

    Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley (hip) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (hip) are both listed as questionable, but both should play against the Houston Texans, according to Rapoport.
    On the Houston side, running back Duke Johnson (ankle) is not expected to play, while wide receiver Brandin Cooks (quad) should be good to go.

    Chicago Bears pass-rusher Robert Quinn, who arrived as a big-time free agent this offseason but missed Week 1, is expected to make his debut today vs. the New York Giants, per Rapoport. He was listed as questionable with an ankle injury.

    Giants wide receiver Golden Tate, listed as questionable after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, is expected to play today. He should be at full strength, according to Rapoport.

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton, dealing with an AC joint sprain, has a good chance to play, but the team wants to work him out pregame to make sure his ailment has healed enough, a source tells Rapoport.

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring Sept. 9 and is out again today against the Green Bay Packers, but head coach Matt Patricia said Saturday: "He's really close." They'll see how he progresses, but it sounds like Golladay could be back for Week 3, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

    Packers right tackle Billy Turner (knee) practiced all week, but his status for today's game against the Lions is very uncertain, a source tells Pelissero. There could be more shuffling for Aaron Rodgers' line, which lost right guard Lane Taylor to a season-ending knee injury last week.

    NFL odds Week 3: Opening lines, sharp money & line movement
    Patrick Everson

    Lamar Jackson and the Ravens will face a stern Monday night test at home against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs. The SuperBook installed Baltimore as a 3-point favorite.

    NFL Week 2 is almost in the books, NFL Week 3 odds are on the board and already getting some attention. Among the marquee matchups is a massive Monday nighter between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens.

    The SuperBook at Westgate's John Murray provided insights on NFL Week 3 opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting. Covers will update this report with NFL sharp picks vs. public bets and line movement throughout the week.

    NFL Week 3 odds

    These are the current NFL Week 3 odds, as of September 20.



    Dolphins at Jaguars odds

    Opening line

    Jaguars -2, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved

    Jacksonville is 1-1 SU, but cashed in in its first two games, losing to Tennessee 33-30 Sunday but covering as a 7-point road underdog. Miami is out of the gate 0-2 SU and 1-1 ATS, getting a last-minute touchdown Sunday to cover as a 5.5-point home 'dog in a 31-28 loss to the Bills.

    So John Murray and his oddsmaking team at The SuperBook made the Jags modest 2-point favorites at home for the Thursday night tilt, and there was apparently a little early Jacksonville interest, as the line went to Jags -2.5.


    Raiders at Patriots odds

    Opening line

    Patriots -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened the Patriots -6.5 and didn’t take much action on it before pulling it down when the Sunday night game kicked off," Murray said Sunday night. It's The SuperBook's standard practice to take a game down when a team is involved in the Sunday night conttest, as the Patriots were against the Seahawks.

    "It's a short week for the Raiders and a tough traveling spot, with them going east in Week 1, then back here for the Monday Night Football game, and then back out to the East Coast for an early kickoff."


    Rams at Bills odds

    Opening line

    Bills -3.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    The Bills are out of the gate 2-0 SU (1-1 ATS), but so are the Rams, who cashed in both games, including a 37-19 victory at Philadelphia on Sunday. Although the Rams are playing back east two consecutive weeks, the first move at The SuperBook was toward Los Angeles, from +3.5 to +3 Sunday night.


    Texans at Steelers odds

    Opening line

    Steelers -6, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no movement Sunday night, though Murray expressed some sympathy for Houston, with its tough early-season schedule. "I don’t know what the Texans did to deserve an opening three weeks of at Chiefs, home against Ravens and at Steelers."


    49ers at Giants odds

    Opening line

    Giants +4, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no move in this game Sunday night at The SuperBook, but Murray said setting the opening number was a little challenging, due to key injuries on both sides. There's concern that Giants running back Saquon Barkley may have torn an ACL in Sunday's loss to the Bears, so he could be lost for the season.

    Likewise, 49ers star defensive end is also thought to have a torn ACL suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. And San Francisco QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a high ankle sprain, so his status for Week 3 is uncertain.

    "Those guys (on the 49ers) are worth a couple points, and then Barkley is worth half-a-point to a point," Murray said, noting The SuperBook probably would've opened the Niners at -6 if not for the injury issues.


    Titans at Vikings odds

    Opening line

    Vikings +2.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    The SuperBook gave Tennessee the nod as short road chalk, but the first move was to the home 'dog Minnesota, as this line moved to Titans -2 Sunday night.


    Washington at Browns odds

    Opening line

    Browns -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no movement Sunday night at The SuperBook.


    Bengals at Eagles odds

    Opening line

    Eagles -5.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    With the opener of 5.5 a relatively dead number, it appears The SuperBook just wanted to see which way bettors would take it. And they took it toward the Eagles, as the line ticked up to -6 Sunday night.


    Bears at Falcons odds

    Opening line

    Falcons -3, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    This line saw no movement Sunday night, but many observers think the Atlanta sideline should see some movement this week – as in, coach Dan Quinn should be fired. The Falcons blew a 39-24 fourth-quarter lead at Dallas, including allowing an onside kick recovery that led to the Cowboys' game-winning field goal as time expired. That marked the only time Dallas led Sunday.


    Jets at Colts odds

    Opening line

    Colts -9, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    Indianapolis (1-1 SU and ATS) rolled over visiting Minnesota 28-11 laying 3.5 points Sunday, while New York fell to 0-2 SU and ATS in a 31-13 home loss to San Francisco. It seems like this number is high, but The SuperBook went a little higher still Sunday night, with the first move to Colts -9.5.


    Panthers at Chargers odds

    Opening line

    Chargers -6.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    There was no line movement at The SuperBook on Sunday night, although Los Angeles was certainly impressive as it fell just short to Kansas City in overtime earlier in the day.


    Lions at Cardinals odds

    Opening line

    Cardinals -5.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    Another game that opens at 5.5 and quickly moves toward the favorite. Arizona is out to a 2-0 SU and ATS start, and early bettors were impressed enough to help move the line to -6.5 Sunday night.


    Buccaneers at Broncos odds

    Opening line

    Broncos +5.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    The Broncos could very well be without QB Drew Lock, who suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. So another game that opens 5.5 moved toward the favorite, in this case the visiting Buccaneers, who went to -6 Sunday night.


    Cowboys at Seahawks odds

    Opening line

    Seahawks -4.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened the Seahawks -4.5 and took some money on Dallas right away," Murray said, noting the game came off the board shortly thereafter, since the Seahawks were playing the Sunday nighter against the Patriots. "There should be good two-way action here. Gotta keep a close eye on the injury report for Dallas."


    Packers at Saints odds

    Opening line

    Saints -3.5, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "We opened Saints -3.5 and took some money both ways," Murray said of action on Sunday night. "The Packers look like they’re a lot better than we realized coming into the season, but we don’t want to overreact too much to their wins over the Vikings and Lions."


    Chiefs at Ravens odds

    Opening line

    Ravens -3, Over/Under TBA

    Why the line moved
    "These are pretty clearly the two best teams in the NFL, and this looks to be the game of the year, at least as far as the regular season is concerned," Murray said. "We have the Ravens as a slightly better team than the Chiefs and the home-field advantage bumps it to Baltimore as a 3-point favorite to open. There was no discussion on this line. Everyone in the room made it Baltimore -3. It looks like all the other books agreed."

    And as of late Sunday night, there was no line movement, either.

    Hot & Not Report - Week 3
    Matt Blunt

    NFL Week 3 Betting Angles

    Two weeks of the season has already come and gone, and before you know it we will be at Halloween, eight weeks will have gone by and you'll still be doing preseason prep for the Pac-12.

    Week 3 is one of my favorite weeks of the NFL season though because the first impressions and subsequent follow ups have already been seen, and perspectives on teams are starting to take some sort of shape. Two games worth of box scores begin to form more data, and yet every season the same things seem to hold true in Week 3 every year.

    So it's into the archives for an updated version of a popular piece last year as there is no reason to change. It performed well once again. It's all about the spread record for Week 3 road teams and if they've got a goose egg in one column, you'll want to take it to crack.

    Who's Hot

    Week 3 road teams that are 0-2 ATS to start the year are 15-4 ATS in Week 3 the past four seasons, including 6-1 ATS a year ago


    Brought this one up at the right time a season ago with a nice 6-1 ATS mark this week, and the 2020 season brings us another strong list of candidates. Some of these teams are even up against some perfect 2-0 ATS teams as well.

    Who do you Follow?

    Cowboys
    Jets
    Texans
    Titans
    Panthers
    Lions

    This means that plays on Dallas (+4.5) at Seattle, the NY Jets (+10.5) at Indianapolis, Houston (+4) at Pittsburgh, Tennessee (-2.5) at Minnesota, Carolina (+7.5) at LA Chargers, and Detroit (+5.5) at Arizona all should be considered for the card.

    A couple of those lines still can have the look of ones that are a little too steeped in a two-week snap judgement and different weighing injuries can be. Carolina's going to be missing McCaffrey which is behind that number getting over a TD as part of the latter, and the Jets may not be as bad as they seem if you believe Buffalo's a contender this year and the catching an angry 49ers team who just happened to be 0-1 SU after losing the Super Bowl.

    At the same time, as someone who has the Vikings to make the Super Bowl an 0-2 SU start in the fashion it's gone down for the Vikings has not gone over well, and I'm not quite ready to write them off yet either. Tennessee's managed to let two teams hang around when they probably shouldn't have too, and laying points on the road with a team you know has kicking issues never feels comfortable.

    The cases for taking the points in five of those six games where it applies is something that won't take much work to have me on board, but there probably isn't much of a hurry to rush to grab these ugly dogs either. Carolina and the Jets are likely to get very little support overall, and I don't know how much market sentiment is left to make many want to back the Lions and Texans led by Matt Patricia and Bill O'Brien respectively.

    Dallas is always going to be a public darling regardless, but up against Russell Wilson and his MVP chatter already making the rounds, that overwhelming Dallas money is probably going to be more balanced. That spread isn't likely to be moving too far either way.

    But after seven games fit this role a season ago and it produced at that 85% clip, it was time to go right back to it and see how the six games that qualify this year end up treating the bankrolls.

    Who's Not

    Week 3 road teams that are 2-0 ATS are 4-9 ATS the past four years; 1-0 ATS in 2019


    This is not going to have the large volume of plays that the other run does, as of the nine teams that are 2-0 ATS, the majority of them are at home in Week 3.

    Who do you Fade?

    Packers
    Rams
    Raiders

    But this would imply that fading the Packers (+4.5) vs New Orleans and the Los Angeles Rams (+2.5/3) at Buffalo should be other options to be considered, as should looking to go against the Raiders (+6) at New England after they defeated the Saints on Monday Night Football.

    Monday's impressive win by the Raiders over the Saints in their Las Vegas home opener could open up the flood gates for plenty of generic Green Bay love as a downgrade on the Saints more then anything, but I'm sure the Raiders may come off that +6 number as well.

    The loss for the Saints likely still brings plenty of Packers love, but Patriots backers are probably going to want to look to get that play down sooner rather then later with New England looking just fine through two games of the Cam Newton era.

    Finally, playing against the Rams means you are playing on a strong Bills team that's remained undefeated and kept the backdoor open too long for the Dolphins to get the late ATS cover on Sunday. There are worse options every week then having a ticket that's got the Bills at home on it though.

    However, it would only be backing the two AFC East teams of these three games that I think I'd end up putting on the card, as even with Packers love expected, I'm still not sure the Saints aren't being valued much higher than they should be.

    NFL betting tips for Week 3: Bet Now or Bet Later
    Jason Logan

    The Buffalo Bills' invigorated passing game is currently the top-ranked aerial attack in the NFL. Their Week 3 total against the Rams is at 46.5 — but it could keep climbing as the week goes on.

    Week 3 is a dangerous week for NFL betting. You have just enough information to lure you into a false sense of security.

    This year, the NFL Week 3 odds are even slipperier to wrangle thanks to no preseason to measure against as well as league-wide injuries befalling many teams and their key contributors this past Sunday. But in the face of all this, the ultimate NFL betting strategy remains: get the best number for your NFL picks.

    We give the top NFL betting tips with our Week 3 lines to bet now and bet later.

    Carolina Panthers vs Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5): Bet now

    The Chargers opened -6 against the Panthers, coming off a tough overtime loss to Kansas City in Week 2. The Bolts played extremely well, considering rookie quarterback Justin Herbert was thrust into action due to Tyrod Taylor suffering pregame chest pains.

    Los Angeles’ defense was excellent, holding the Chiefs to 23 points and forcing three long field goals from an offense that usually has zero trouble finding the end zone. Offensively, the Chargers had a great balance between run and pass and now take on a poor Panthers defense.

    Carolina is crossing the country after allowing 31 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, on the heels of 34 points from the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. And while the Panthers’ defense – or lack thereof – is enough to like L.A., the fact Carolina star RB Christian McCaffrey will miss time with an ankle injury is a cherry on top of the sundae for Chargers fans. Get the Bolts below the touchdown now.


    Kansas City Chiefs (+3) vs Baltimore Ravens: Bet Later

    Oh my gawd, this is going to awesome. The Chiefs and Ravens GET IT ON this coming Monday night and the early odds have the defending Super Bowl champs as field goal pups on the road in Week 3. While this spread hasn’t come off the key number, books are adjusting their juice on the Ravens -3 to -115 while discounting K.C. in an attempt to stir up some Chiefs action.

    Kansas City barely escaped Week 2 with a win, needing some long-range field goal kicking to edge the Chargers in overtime. Now, Patrick Mahomes & Co. hit the road for a second straight game, this time taking on a Baltimore squad that looks scary good through two weeks.

    If you’re not sold on the Chiefs here, I don’t blame you. The Ravens crushed Cleveland in Week 1 and broke Houston on its home turf, covering both spreads at -7 and -7.5 respectively. However, if you do like Kansas City, wait it out and see if the half-point hooks show its face. And when it does, get ready to pounce because it won’t be there long.


    Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Denver Broncos (Under 43.5): Bet Now

    As much as the media wants to pile the praise on Tom Brady for the Buccaneers’ Week 2 win over Carolina, it was the Tampa Bay running backs that did the damage. The Bucs blasted the Panthers defense for 122 yards and three scores on the ground.

    Tampa Bay takes to the road in Week 3, traveling up the mountain to play the Denver Broncos. Denver will be without starting QB Drew Lock for the next few games, but it did see some life from backup Jeff Driskel against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t buy into that continuing.

    The Broncos are pretty beaten up on offense, with RB Phillip Lindsay out and WR Courtland Sutton ruled out for the season on Monday. Denver’s defense is a bit of a mess too, but it always seems to put up a fight at home, going 4-12 Over/Under in the team’s last 16 home games.

    I expect another run-focused playbook from the Bucs, which should kill clock and keep scoring low. Tampa Bay’s dangerous defense will also feast on the broken Broncos. If you like the Under, you’ll want to move on this now before it starts dropping.


    Los Angeles Rams vs Buffalo Bills (Under 46.5): Bet Later

    This total is on the rise, opening as low as 45 points and jumping to 46.5 as of Monday morning. And why not? The top-ranked passing game in the NFL is on the field.

    That’s right. The Bills’ offseason addition of WR Stefon Diggs has been just what Josh Allen needed to flex his cannon arm, with Buffalo averaging 29 points through the opening two games of 2020 – fueled by the throw.

    The Rams dragged their feet on offense in the Week 1 opener versus Dallas but found their footing in a 37-19 win at Philadelphia on Sunday. But let’s not discount the defenses on either side of this matchup — or the circumstances facing L.A.

    Buffalo and Los Angeles have a surplus of playmakers on defense as well as potent pass rushes that can disrupt even the most high-powered attack. On top of that, the Rams are racking up the frequent-flyer miles, having to fly to Philly for Week 2, then fly back to L.A., and then fly to Buffalo on Saturday, due to COVID restrictions. If you’re eyeing the Under, wait it out and see if this total keeps climbing.

    NFL Week 3 Injuries, Weather
    Patrick Everson

    The 49ers are more of an orthopedics clinic than a football team this week. QB Jimmy Garoppolo, among many others, is out, moving San Fran's spread from -6 to -4, and back to -4.5 Monday.

    NFL Week 2 is in the rearview mirror, NFL Week 3 odds are on the board, and several betting factors are already in play. That includes a flood of key injuries that will impact spreads and totals, particularly in the San Francisco 49ers-New York Giants clash.

    This week’s NFL Cheat Sheet serves as one-stop shopping for all that information and more.

    Week 2 Injuries

    San Francisco 49ers:
    Star defensive end Nick Bosa tore an ACL and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday’s road win against the Jets. Bosa is done for the year, while Garoppolo might be able to play in Week 3 at the New York Giants. “Those guys are worth a couple of points,” said John Murray, executive director of The SuperBook at Westgate.

    Murray said The SuperBook had the Niners -6 against the Giants before those two injuries, among others. Running back Raheem Mostert (knee) was already ruled out for Week 3, and wideout Tevin Coleman has a knee sprain. Oh, and defensive end Solomon Thomas also has a season-ending ACL tear.

    “They’re very banged up,” Murray said, noting The SuperBook opened the 49ers -4 and moved to -4.5 Monday.

    New York Giants:
    Saquon Barkley also suffered a torn ACL Sunday in a road loss to the Bears, so he’s done for the year. “Barkley is worth a half-point to a point,” Murray said. The Giants are 4.5-point underdogs to the visiting 49ers. It’s also worth noting the 49ers-Giants total opened at just 41.5, quickly dropped to 40.5, then went to 41 Monday afternoon.

    Denver Broncos:
    QB Drew Lock separated his right (throwing) shoulder in a loss at Pittsburgh, and he’ll miss two to six weeks, while star wideout Courtland Sutton is done for the year with a torn ACL. On the look-ahead line last week, The SuperBook had the Broncos 3.5-point Week 3 home ‘dogs to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. The line opened Sunday night with Denver as 5.5-point pups and stretched to +6.5, then went to +6.

    Carolina Panthers:
    Stud running back Christian McCaffrey was another Week 2 victim of a high ankle sprain and could miss several weeks. So he’s certainly not playing Sunday as the Panthers make the cross-country trip to face a Los Angeles Chargers team that just took the Kansas City Chiefs to overtime. Carolina is a 7-point underdog at The SuperBook.

    Los Angeles Chargers:
    QB Tyrod Taylor was a late scratch Sunday against the Chiefs with complications from a rib injury. Coach Anthony Lynn said Monday that Taylor would start this week if he’s 100 percent, but complicating matters a bit is that rookie Justin Herbert played reasonably well in a 23-20 overtime loss to Super Bowl champion Kansas City. But with the Panthers minus McCaffrey, the Chargers are still 7-point favorites this week.


    Week 2 Weather

    Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns:
    As of Monday, there’s a 50 percent chance of rain Sunday in Cleveland, with south/southwest winds of 10-20 mph. The SuperBook opened the total at 44.5 and ticked down to 44 Monday.

    Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers:
    Pittsburgh is looking at a 50 percent chance of rain, as well. The total opened at 45 early Monday morning and over the next couple of hours went to 44.5, then back to 45.

    Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles:
    The early forecast calls for morning rain in Philly, with intermittent showers in the afternoon Sunday. The total hasn’t moved off 46.5.

    Los Angeles Rams at Buffalo Bills:
    As of Monday, there’s a 60 percent chance of afternoon thundershowers, with south/southwest winds at 15-25 mph. But the total in this game is already up to 48, after opening 46.5 at The SuperBook.

    San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants:
    The early forecast calls for occasional showers Sunday, with a 50 percent chance of rain. The total went from 41.5 to 40.5, then 41, but that likely has much more to do with both teams’ injuries, as noted above.
