We are back with week two, and our week two NFL picks. Last week didn’t go as planned, as the record was 1-1 with one push (Bengals vs Bears). The Raiders, frankly, were quite surprising, as I was sure they were going to fall short, allowing the Colts to cover last week.
Anyway, onward and upward, Remember these are my personal opinions, not necessarily the opinions off all staff writers, and we are not responsible for any gambling losses based on these picks. That being said, let’s get to it. The picks for this second Football Friday in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE!
PANTHERS -3 OVER BILLS
We start this week in Buffalo. The Bills, coming off a near upset of the New England Patriots, host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers had it a little rough last week, scoring only seven points in a loss to the Seahawks last week.
After a week one where it took a late comeback from New England to beat the Bills, Carolina is coming into a very hostile environment. Cam Newton and company are going to see a Bills team that is confident and ready to win a ball game. Take the Bills +3 over the Panthers. Don’t be surprised if the Bills win this one outright.
COLTS -3 OVER DOLPHINS
Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins head into Indianapolis to take on Andrew Luck and company. The Colts are heading into this one after a narrow 21-17 victory over Oakland, while Miami took down Cleveland last week, 23-10.
As well as Miami played last week, heading to Indy is a tough order. Indy is loud, and this week will be no exception, and the firepower that the Colts have will prove to be too much.
Take the Colts -3 over the Dolphins
PACKERS -7.5 OVER REDSKINS
We finish with an interesting one from Lambeau. The Packers take on RGIII and the Redskins. Aaron Rodgers vs RGIII. The classic dropback quarterback vs the scrambling quarterback. Who is going to win?
Before the comeback the Redskins made on Monday night, I would have taken Green Bay and the points. However, Griffin found his groove as the game went along last week, and he will be fine. Combine that with the almost 500 yards that Green Bay allowed on defense, and there is no way they cover.
Take the Redskins +7.5 over the Packers
So there you have it,
Bills +3 over the PanthersColts -3 over the Dolphinsand Redskins +7.5 over the Packers
