Most Recent Line Changes
Talking Points had no qualms with the opening week, as the blog went against the spread picking every game. Lines are the best currently available in Las Vegas on the chosen side. New Orleans has a lockdown on being one of the worst defenses in the league for the last several years, while Pittsburgh should return to being one of the best this season. Tennessee Titans It was just Week 16 of last season when the Jaguars flattened the Titans at home behind a dominant defensive performance.
Chicago Bears plus-7 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Feeling detached from the hype around the Buccaneers, which have a turnover-prone offense and a defense susceptible to getting gashed by the run. New York Giants minus-3 vs. Cincinnati Bengals minus-6 vs. Green Bay Packers Treasure Island is dealing this deflated spread, giving just enough value to confidently going with the Falcons in their debut at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Not ready to write off Washington, which has been a profitable against the spread bet the last two seasons.
There are three games that really stand out above the rest to me. The first is a rematch between the Texans and Patriots at Foxboro. These two teams met in Week 3 at New England last year, which many felt was the coming out party for Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who threw for yards and 2 scores in a upset win.
The next game that really has me excited is the 49ers at the Vikings. San Francisco closed out the season with 5 straight wins after starting the season It just so happened their finish came at the same time that Jimmy Garroppolo was inserted into the lineup. You can see just how much respect the 49ers are getting by the fact that they opened as a mere 4-point dog, but that number has since been bet up to 6.
The final game that gets my attention is the Cowboys at the Panthers. Another matchup has the Vikings visiting the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger and Co. While the game could be postponed due to Hurricane Irma, the Bucs are currently 7-point home favorites versus the Bears.
In the late action on Sunday, the Chargers are 4. After crushing the Colts in Week 1, the Rams are 2. The Broncos, meanwhile, are 2-point home underdogs versus the visiting Cowboys and the Seahawks are Finally, in one of the better matchups of Week 2, the Falcons are between 2.
