Moneyline Upset Picks NFL Week 2
Kansas City +190 at Pittsburgh -230
When: Sunday, Sep. 16 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA
Stream: CBS Sports
Analysis: Kansas City’s offense hasn’t missed a beat after trading quarterback Alex Smith and going with second-year player Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes has the skills to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.
Pittsburgh just isn’t the same team without running back Le’Veon Bell. Pitt decided not to rescind Bell’s offer. They won’t trade Bell. That means Bell could play in Week 2.
Even if he does, Pittsburgh’s offense should have a tough time keeping up with Kansas City’s offense. Mahomes gives the Chiefs an extra element because he can throw the ball as well as Smith, but he can also motor with his legs.
Kansas City upsets the Steelers on Sunday.
Moneyline Upset Pick: Kansas City +190
New England -125 at Jacksonville +105
When: Sunday, Sep. 16 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville, FL
Stream: CBS Sports
Analysis: As long as Tom Brady plays for New England, the Patriots will be favorites over the Jacksonville Jaguars. That is until the Jags beat the Patriots.
The Jaguars have one of the top defenses in the NFL. Brady must beat the Jaguars again like he did in the AFC Championship when he threw for 290 yards and 2 TD passes. Nobody should expect Brady to provide that type of magic in the rematch.
No longer one-dimensional on offense, expect the Jaguars to pass before running out the clock with Leonard Fournette. Jacksonville beats the Patriots straight up on Sep. 16.
Moneyline Upset Pick: Jacksonville +105
NY Giants +133 at Dallas -153
When: Sunday, Sep. 16 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX
Stream: NBC Sports Live
Analysis: Dallas has an awful offense. The Cowboys have trouble scoring points because quarterback Dak Prescott has very few receiving targets. The Boys should find it next to impossible to keep up with a loaded Giants’ offense.
That doesn’t mean the Giants blowout he Cowboys on Sunday. It does mean that Giants’ skill players Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley are good enough for a New York Giants 6 to 7 points win.
