The 2012 NFL season started off with a bang in Week 1, but what can we look forward to in Week 2? Check out our quick reads for each matchup this Sunday and how it may impact your betting dollars.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants (-7, 44.5)
The Buccaneers haven’t defeated the Giants since Nov. 24, 2003. Tampa is 0-4-1 ATS in its last five meetings with New York and the teams have played under the total in seven straight matchups.
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers (+1, 51.5)
The Saints have taken the last four meetings with the Panthers. The under is 8-1 in the last nine meetings and the road team is 17-4 ATS in the last 21 games head-to-head.
Arizona Cardinals at New England Patriots (-13, 48)
The Cardinals haven’t picked up a victory over the Patriots since the 1991 campaign, dropping the last five meetings. Arizona is 0-4 ATS in its last four contests versus New England.
Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts (+1, 44.5)
Indianapolis has taken the last three games in the series and Minnesota is just 1-5 ATS in its last six games following a win.
Baltimore Ravens at Philadelphia Eagles (-1, 46.5)
Is this spread too good to be true after Baltimore’s convincing win over Cincinnati last week? The Eagles barely slipped past the Browns last week and are just 1-5 ATS in their last six Week 2 games.
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills (-4, 44.5)
C.J. Spiller will get the majority of the carries for the Bills after Fred Jackson suffered a knee injury in their blowout loss to the Jets in Week 1. The Chiefs are 0-5 ATS in their last five meetings with Buffalo.
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (-7, 39)
The Bengals have won three straight over the Browns but the underdog is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars (+7, 40.5)
The Texans are riding a three-game winning streak over the Jaguars. Houston is 4-0 ATS in its last four Week 2 contests.
Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins (+1, 39)
The Dolphins have owned the Raiders in recent years, taking six of the last seven games against the black and silver. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks (+3, 42.5)
Cowboys QB Tony Romo returns to the site of his infamous playoff gaffe for the first time since his botched hold in the 2007 playoffs. The good news for Dallas bettors is that the squad is 5-1 ATS in its last six against Seatte.
Washington Redskins at St. Louis Rams (+3.5, 44.5)
The Redskins are just 1-4 ATS in their last five meetings with the Rams, but it could be a different story with RG3 under center on Sunday. St. Louis is 4-0-1 O/U in its last five September contests.
New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5, 41.5)
Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis left their Week 1 game against the Bills with a minor head injury and has since been diagnosed with a mild concussion. However, he’s expected to play on Sunday. New York needs him because the Steelers are 8-0 ATS in their last eight games following a straight-up loss.
Tennessee Titans at San Diego Chargers (-6, 43)
The Chargers have won eight straight over the Titans. Tennessee’s last victory over San Diego was way back in 1992. The Titans have played under the total in nine of their last 11 games overall.
Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers (-7, 46.5)
Detroit is winless in its last eight contests with San Francisco. The teams played under the total in all eight of those previous meetings.
