2019 NFL Week 2 SU Betting Picks

2019 NFL Week 2 SU Betting Picks

Written by on September 9, 2019

Once the new NFL season begins, we don’t really get a lot of time to reflect on the week that just finished, as it’s quickly on to new business on Thursday night. For the teams that lost in Week 1, a victory is almost a must in the second week of the season. The odds of making the playoffs decrease dramatically for teams that get off to an 0-2 start, which makes this week must win territory for some teams.

We bare going to look at several different NFL Week 2 Betting angles, but for the purposes of this piece, we are going to look at SU picks.

2019 NFL Week 2 Odds & SU Picks

San Francisco 49ers over Cincinnati Bengals (-2)

Last season, the San Francisco 49ers were brutal on the road, failing to pick up a single win in 8 attempts. In fairness, they operated the majority of the season without their starting QB under center, so those losses can be somewhat excused.

They started out this season with a win on the road against Tampa, where they also covered the spread. This week they will be in Cincinnati to face a Bengals team that should still be without star WR A.J. Green. I like the 49ers to make it 2 in a row on the road in a close one.

NFL Week 2 Betting Trends

  • 49ers are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games
  • 49ers are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games on the road
  • Bengals are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games
  • Bengals are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against San Francisco

Tennessee Titans (-3) over Indianapolis Colts

With Andrew Luck announcing his retirement prior to the start of the season, the AFC South became a little more wide-open. The Colts lost in Week 1, but Jacoby Brissett looked good enough at the QB spot, leaving Colts fans believing that this season might not be a total wash.

The Tennessee Titans finished Week 1 with a stunning 43-13 win over the Browns on the road in Cleveland. The Titans will be home this weekend, and while they are 1-6 SU in their last 7 home games versus the Colts, I like them to get the win in this one.

NFL Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Colts are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games
  • Colts are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road
  • Titans are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games
  • Titans are 6-12 SU in their last 18 games played in week 2

New York Giants over Buffalo Bills (-2.5)

There were times in Week 1 when the New York Giants looked good on the offensive side of the football, but they ended up being totally overpowered by a Dallas Cowboys team that very much looks like the real deal.

The Giants are slight favorites at the NFL Week 2 Odds against the Bills.

It was more of the same for the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, with their offense sputtering yet still managing to somehow outlast the New York Jets in a 17-16 win. The Giants are not a very good September team, going 1-8 SU in their last 9 in that month, but they are 4-2 versus the Bills and have the home edge here.

NFL Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Bills are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against NY Giants
  • Bills are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games played in week 2
  • Giants are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games
  • Giants are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC conference

LA Chargers (-3) over Detroit Lions

If you take a loss in Week 1, it’s always important to try and bounce back with a win the following week. The Lions ended up tying their opening week game with the Cardinals, but it was a result that will feel like a loss given that Detroit gassed a big lead in the 4th quarter.

The Chargers were made to work hard for their opening week win, outlasting the Indianapolis Colts for a 30-24 victory. With that win, the Chargers have now won 13 of their last 16 games. Better yet, they are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games versus teams from the NFC, all of which adds up to a win in this one.

NFL Week 2 Betting Trends

  • Chargers are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games
  • Chargers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the NFC conference
  • Lions are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against LA Chargers
