Week Two Opens with Impressive Early Lineup for NFL Bets

June 1st, 2020 NFL Football, Sportsbook

There is an old NFL adage about the second week of the regular season. Accordingly, it is said that a team’s biggest improvement will come in Week Two. Another factor to take into account is a public overreaction to Week One NFL bets results. To illustrate the opening lines of Week Two will often be set in anticipation of squares and sharps alike getting carried away by the results of a team’s first game. With that in mind, the early portion of Week Two has some challenging handicaps.

2020 NFL Draft number one overall pick Joe Burrow will continue his on the job training for Cincinnati. His Cleveland quarterback counter is controversial Baker Mayfield. To illuminate Mayfield took two steps back in 2019 after a strong rookie sportsbook campaign. Which Mayfield will we get? In turn, will the Bengals be competitive enough for it to even matter?

New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears

Giants vs. Bears NFL Bets odds at SBG:

In the same way as Mayfield are the Bears a tale of two seasons. Chicago won the NFC North in 2018. However last year was a major setback for the Bears and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Philadelphia Super Bowl hero Nick Foles arrives at the Windy City to challenge for Trubisky’s job. Daniel Jones proved naysayers wrong as a Giants rookie signal-caller in 2019. Now head coach Joe Judge arrives to begin the painful rebuild.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys

Date and Time:Sunday, September 20, 2020, 1 p.m. ET
Location:AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas
Falcons vs. Cowboys TV Coverage:FOX
Falcons vs. Cowboys NFL Bets odds at SBG:

Indeed, this is a win or else season for Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Things have never been the same since Atlanta’s Super Bowl meltdown against New England. Quinn barely escaped the firing squad in 2019. Owner Arthur Blank gave Quinn a pardon due to a strong finish to a lost season. Atlanta was a virtual one-man team with quarterback Matt Ryan and little else. It follows that the defense in particular must compliment the offense more. Running back acquisition Todd Gurley will help lighten Ryan’s load.

Dallas is one of the hottest NFL Bets picks on the futures board. Namely, Mike McCarthy gives the Cowboys instead gravitas as head coach. While the 2020 NFL Draft by owner Jerry Jones received universal accolades. Of major concern is that Dallas is a perpetual public overlay that always falls short.

Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Date and Time:Sunday, September 20, 2020, 1 p.m. ET
Location:Lambeau Field, Green Bay Wisconsin
Lions vs. Packer TV Coverage:FOX
Lions vs. Packers NFL Bets Odd at SBG:
Lions+6 (-110)46 (-110)
Packers-6 (-110)46 (-110)

By reason of their consistent losing is Detroit often passed up by gamblers. Contrarily is a Packers team that consistently prints money in home games. Except against the Lions! More emphatically the Lions have faded public perception with four payouts in their last five games at Lambeau Field.
