Preseason football is headed into its second week and if you can’t find an NFL Preseason Week 2 spread to bet on, then I have a handful of NFL Preseason Week 2 SU moneyline upset picks to cash in on.
NFL Preseason Week 2 Straight Up Moneyline Upset Alerts
New York Jets +110 vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Jets didn’t perform that badly in the 22-31 loss to the Giants in NFL Preseason Week 1. The Falcons are already 0-2 after a couple of preseason battles. No way Dan Quinn pushes his fellas in this, which means the Jets pick up the SU victory.
Pick: New York Jets
Buffalo Bills +140 vs. Carolina Panthers
Panthers looked good beating the Bears. Buffalo played a great game in the 24-16 victory over the Colts in NFL Preseason Week 1. The Bills rushed for 163 yards from 32 carries. Carolina allowed the Bears to rush for 82 yards on 19 carries. The Bills won’t pull back from rushing the pigskin while Carolina might not want their front 7 to take too much pounding.
Pick: Buffalo Bills
Miami Dolphins +160 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs played great in the 28-30 loss to Pittsburgh in preseason Week 1. They should have a tough time keeping the Dolphins from scoring in this tilt even though Miami is projected to be the worst team in the NFL. Why? The Dolphins will have either Josh Rosen or Ryan Fitzpatrick under center in the pursuit of Tua in the 2020 draft. Dolphins take the win.
Pick: Miami Dolphins
Detroit Lions +160 vs. Houston Texans
Detroit looked awful in their 3-31 preseason Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots. The Lions rushed for only 72 yards. They passed for only 21. The defense gave up 133 New England rushing yards and 326 passing. Sounds awful, but it might have been by design. It’s hard to imagine Lions’ head coach Matt Patricia and Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick not discussing what they wanted to get out of the game before kickoff. Now that Patricia knows what he’s got with his bench players, he should start to tighten up the second string and give his starters some time. Detroit wins.
Pick: Detroit Lions
New Orleans Saints +140 vs. L.A. Chargers
The Chargers rushed for 179 yards from 28 carries. Don’t expect a repeat performance versus a Saints’ defense that most definitely will improve after allowing the Vikings to rush for 213 yards from 27 carries in NFL Preseason Week 1. Also, N.O. most likely will give Drew Brees some work in this matchup.
Pick: New Orleans Saints
