Best NFL Bets for Week 2: Points in the Ravens Vs Chiefs, Patriots to Bounce Back

  • Week 1 set a new record for underdog teams coming away with the win
  • We’ve learned a lot about some teams
  • Interesting value to be had in those teams looking to bounce back

Week 1 of the NFL season is notoriously hard to call as there are so many variables to take into account, while you never really know how the rookies or free-agent additions are going to play. We saw a grand total of 9 “upset” wins in week 1 where the underdog came out on top, so it will be interesting to see how this season plays out.

Anybody can predict the obvious like San Francisco besting the sorry Detroit Lions, but the odds will also be short, so here’s a look at some good value bets for Week 2 of the season.

Best NFL Bets for Week 2 of the 2021 Season

New England Patriots -5.5 vs New York Jets

This selection also features in our “lock of the week” section, but it just makes a lot of sense when you look at what we learned from both teams in week 1. Zach Wilson did have some nice moments so there will be a hope from the Jets that he grows throughout the season, but the New England defense improved as the game went on against Miami and they should be able to shut the Jets down.

The Patriots also schemed their offense on Sunday around apparent limitations in Mac Jones, but those concerns were unfounded. While they couldn’t move the ball on the ground, Jones looked good in the face of pressure, he made good reads and he even flashed a bit of speed to extend the play. You can also fully imagine that Bill Belichick has spent an entire week preaching ball security, so the Pats look like the solid choice to bounce back here.

Patriots vs Jets Odds

San Francisco 49ers -3.5 vs Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles completely crushed the Falcons 32-6 in their season opener, but the 49ers also went into their 4th quarter vs the Liones up 38-17 and the scoreline only looked remotely close due to a meltdown late in garbage-time which opened the game up again.

Philadelphia looked good on offense with Jalen Hurts against one of the worst defenses in the league, but San Francisco have one of the more feared D’s in the NFL, while some of their returning players now have a competitive game under their belt so they should grow from there.

This might not be a blowout, but San Francisco should win comfortably and cover the spread.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Baltimore Ravens Over 55.5 Points

There were 62 points score in the Chiefs’ week 1 victory over the Browns, while the Raiders and the Ravens also combined for 60 in their opener so we can see two teams with the potential to score points.

What we also have are two defenses that look vulnerable to the other’s strength in this matchup. Cleveland looked formidable in the run game, and Lamar Jackson could wreak havoc here if he can avoid fumbles, while the patched-up RB room has another week of practice to grow stronger.

On the other side of the ball, Baltimore had problems with deep coverage and the pass rush wasn’t really getting home, so it’s easy to see Patrick Mahomes having a field day here and putting up plenty of points, so it may also become a situation where both are trying to keep up with each other.

Expect points, and more than 55.5 of them.
