Week 2 of the NFL season presents some great games and some great potential bets for gamblers.
Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season is in the books, meaning we've spent the past few days celebrating one of football's greatest traditions - overreacting.
While making grandiose claims based on just a few minutes of actual on the field action may be a boon for debate shows on ESPN and FS1, it can lead to some dangerous waters for gamblers. Week 1 undoubtedly showed us a few breakout teams that will emerge as powerhouses through the season but don't throw away your preseason rankings after one matchup.AdvertisementLast week, our picks went a frustrating 7-9, with one failed two-point conversion and one blown 14-point fourth quarter lead between us and a winning week. But hey, that's gambling. There's always next week.
Take a look below at our picks against the spread for Week 2 of the NFL season, as we attempt to wade through the overreactions and get back to our winning ways.
