NFL betting handicappers will have several key matchups with top teams that are already in near must win situations after stumbling out of the gate.
Tennessee at Giants
After a solid opening day performance by Big Blue, Perry Fewell’s defense was lit up last week at Indianapolis and now faces the challenge of stopping 2000+ yard rusher Chris Johnson of Tennessee
Buffalo at New England
The Patriots opened as huge 14-point chalks at Sbg global.com and should bounce back against what could be the worst team in the NFL.
Cleveland at Baltimore
Eric Mangini could be a dead man coaching after this one as angry Baltimore will be in no mood for charity after a division loss at Cincinnati last week.
Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay
Two excellent defensive teams meeting here but the Steel Curtain of Pittsburgh is the proven commodity.
Cincinnati at Carolina
Jimmy Clausen gets the start at QB for the desperate Panthers and coach Jim Fox, who has a very hot seat. Which Bengals team will show up here?
Atlanta at New Orleans
The Saints defense has been impressive and Atlanta will have New Orleans full attention after their blowout win over Arizona last week.
San Francisco at Kansas City
This game was expected to feature a winless team against an undefeated team. What was not expected was that KC would be the 2-0 team and the 49ers the 0-2 team facing a must win situation.
Detroit at Minnesota
The 0-2 Vikings opened as 11.5-point chalks with the NFL odds as they simply cannot afford a loss, especially to the Motor City Kitties.
Dallas at Houston
So far it looks like the Texans, rather than the Cowboys, could be the team that plays on Super Sunday in Jerry’s World. Perhaps Jones will call Jimmy Johnson out of retirement to save the season.
Washington at St. Louis
Sam Bradford continues his on the job training against Donovan McNabb and the Redskins as a 3.5-point NFL betting dog. Washington looks to get off the mat after blowing a 27-10 3rd quarter lead to Houston last week.
Philadelphia at Jacksonville
Michael Vick gets the full time starting gig at QB for the Eagles as Jack Del Rio and QB David Gerrard are under fire again at home.
Indianapolis at Denver
The Broncos will play with heavy hearts against a Colts team that pulled itself together with a big win last week over the Giants.
San Diego at Seattle
The Chargers had a nice bounceback win last week while Pete Carroll must rally his troops and QB Matt Hasselbeck after a poor performance at Denver last week.
Oakland at Arizona
Bruce Gradkowski gets the start at QB for Oakland after pitching a relief win last week in the Cardinals home opener.
Jets at Dolphins
A phenomenal NBC Sunday night matchup with Miami as 1.5-point chalks with the NFL odds as two strong defensive teams will wrestle for first place in the AFC East.
Green Bay at Chicago
ESPN Monday Night Football gets the NFL’s oldest rivalry and two undefeated teams. Can Green Bay continue to win without a running back?
