From a pair of fascinating matchups featuring only unbeaten teams to more intriguing contests featuring at least one team looking to pick up its first win of the season (New England, Green Bay) this breakdown on every Week 2 game that airs on CBS, will give you the momentum you need in order to make a series of well-informed wagers.
Now, let’s get started with the two contests featuring only unbeaten ballclubs.
Bet On CBS 1pm Games
Miami at Buffalo
The Dolphins and Bills both recorded surprising victories by beating the Patriots and Bears in their respective Week 1 regular season openers and now look to remain unbeaten in this perennial AFC East divisional showdown. After losing both meetings against the Bills year ago, Miami will look to extract some major revenge in this one.
Miami is 5-1 ATS in their last six September games and an extremely consistent 29-11 in their L/40 road games against a team with a winning record.
The good news for the Bills is that they’ve gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine home games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against their AFC East division rivals.
Miami has not traditionally fared well when they have to travel to upstate New York, having gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games against Buffalo while the favorite in this longstanding series is 5-1 ATS in the last half-dozen meetings.
Atlanta at Cincinnati 1:00 PM ET
The Falcons and Bengals both got impressive wins in their Week 1 openers. The Cincinnati Bengals looked overpowering in beating Baltimore 23-16 while Atlanta’s offense was back to its high-scoring ways in beating New Orleans 37-34 in overtime.
Atlanta is 5-0 ATS in their last five Week 2 contests and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Bengals however, have put together a near-perfect 9-1 ATS mark in its L/10 home games.
Jacksonville at Washington 1:00 PM ET
I don’t think the ratings for this matchup will be very good as both of these teams try to pick up their first victories of the season. Jacksonville fell apart in the second half of their 34-17 Week 1 loss to Philly while Washington got man-handled in their 17-6 smackdown at the hands of Houston.
The good news for the Jags is that they’ve gone 3-1-1 ATS in their L/5 games against a team with a losing record while Washington has managed to go just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following an SU loss.
New England at Minnesota 1:00 PM ET
The Patriots got spanked pretty solidly in their 33-20 road loss to Miami in Week 1 while Minnesota looked fantastic in routing St. Louis 34-6 road win over the reeling (yes, already) St. Louis Rams.
The good news for gridiron fanatics that love Tom Brady and company is the fact that New England has gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following an SU loss. The bad news is that they’ll take on a Minnesota squad that not only has a new mentality under head coach Mike Zimmer, but one that has gone 4-0 ATS in its last four home games and a blistering 6-1 ATS in their L/7 games overall.
Bet On CBS 4pm Games
Houston at Oakland 4:25 PM ET
The Texans might have lost No. 1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney for a few weeks due to a knee injury, but they kicked off the Bill O’Brien ear with an impressive 17-6 beat-down of Washington in Week 1.
Oakland lost a close contest to the Jets in falling 19-14, but the Raiders clearly have a talented young signal-caller in rookie quarterback Derek Carr. The Underdog in this AFC rivalry is 6-2 ATS in the L/8 meetings while the road team has gone 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.
NY Jets at Green Bay 4:25 PM ET
The New York Jets got a narrow 19-14 win against Oakland in Week 1, but they had to hold on in the second half against the rebuilding Oakland Raiders and never scored more than seven points in any quarter. Unfortunately, New York will face a Green Bay Packers team that is coming off a humbling 36-166 loss to Seattle in its opener and will be primed to even their record after their season-opening loss.
The Jets are just 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games while Green Bay has posted a bankroll-boosting 20-8 ATS mark in its L/28 games against teams with a winning SU record.
Kansas City at Denver 4:25 PM ET
The Chiefs looked completely listless on offense in their humbling 26-10 Week 1 home loss to Tennessee while Denver had to hold on in the second half of its narrow 31-24 win over Andrew Luck and the Colts.
The Broncos won both of last season’s meetings against their longtime AFC West rivals and have gone 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games against Kansas City.
