NFL Betting – Week 2 Recap

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL betting action was full of phenomenal upsets and surprises but also offered plenty of revelations about what could be coming in the weeks ahead.

Dallas’ 27-20 upset loss to Chicago as 7-point home chalks gave put them in the hole at 0-2.  Perhaps if Jerry Jones would hire a real head coach his dream of hosting the Super Bowl would come true.

Minnesota is also 0-2 after their 14-10 loss to Miami as 5.5-point home chalks.  Brett Favre has no breakaway receiver and looks very much like a 40-year old that missed camp and hasn’t recovered from a severe ankle injury.

Kansas City continues to surprise with the NFL odds as they are 2-0 after a 16-14 win at Cleveland as 3-point dogs.  Eric Mangini may be unemployed soon.

Cincinnati made a bold statement about keeping the AFC North crown after beating Baltimore 15-10 as 2.5-point home dogs. 

Michael Vick has started a QB controversy at Philadelphia after starring in the Eagles 35-32 win at Detroit.  Kevin Kolb will get the start his week but will likely be looking over his shoulder and better not stumble.

Oakland may also have a QB controversy as Bruce Gradkowski had to relieve Jason Campbell in a 16-14 win over St. Louis.  There was a reason, after all, why Washington sent Campbell packing.

Derek Anderson looked very much like the QB that Cleveland sent packing last year in a poor performance at Atlanta as the Falcons scored a nice 41-7 bounceback win at home over Arizona.

Pittsburgh is 2-0 thanks to a Steel Curtain defense that suffocated Tennessee in a 19-11 wins as 6-point dogs.  It’s so far so good without Ben Roethlisberger for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Buffalo looks every bit as bad as expected after a 34-7 loss at Green Bay to fall to 0-2.  Aaron Rodgers and the Pack are looking quite “Super.”

The Jets got their swagger back in an impressive 28-14 NFL betting payout over favored New England as Mark Sanchez outplayed Tom Brady at QB. 

An angry San Diego team destroyed Jacksonville 38-13 as 7-point chalks to remind everyone why Jack Del Rio and David Gerrard are both on the hot seat and lack credibility with gamblers.

Houston scored a thrilling 30-27 overtime win after coming back from a 27-10 deficit over Washington as Matt Schaub threw for close to 500 yards and reminded handicappers why this is a bona fide playoff contender.

Tampa Bay is off to a surprise 2-0 start after beating Carolina 20-7 as 4-point dogs to increase the temperature on Panther coach John Fox’s seat. 

Pete Carroll had little to “rah rah” about after a 31-14 loss at Denver as his Seahawks fell to 1-1. 

The Giants defense looked like last year’s version in a 38-14 loss at Indianapolis that inspired no confidence for future action with the NFL odds.

New Orleans defense continues to impress after their 25-22 win at mistake prone San Francisco.  The 49ers are 0-2 after talking playoffs before the season.
