Week one of the NFL is in the books and it’s on to week two. The NFL week two betting lines are in. Time for us here at Vendetta to give our predictions and make you, the reader, rich. We have a new face joining the picks this week. Fellow Vendetta writer and editor Andrew Zucker gives his first picks of the season. Though Adam did not do picks this week, I’ll still count him towards the season total.

Results through week one

Jackson: 9-7

Adam: 7-9

Jackson

Cincinnati @ Cleveland

CIN +6

I’m not saying the Browns don’t win this game, but Burrow did a decent job in his first start. He struggled for sure, but in the end, he put his team in a position to win. Burrow can’t help kick the ball in. Browns may win, but the Bengals keep it close.

San Francisco @ New York Jets

SF -7

San Francisco looked pretty good last week despite a loss. The only competition the Jets can win this year is who has the worst roster. Another tough week for Jets fans.

New York Giants @ Chicago

CHI -5.5

The other New York team is also exceedingly awful. Chicago had a good comeback win against a not so great Lions team, but they’re still better than the Giants.

Atlanta @ Dallas

ATL +4.5

Dallas’ defensive side is in taters. Calvin Ridley exploded in Week 1, and Matt Ryan did Matt Ryan things. The Falcons overall looked good against the Seahawks and will pull out a win against the Cowboys.

Detroit @ Green Bay

GB -6

Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay looked awesome in Week 1. They should easily win and cover.

Minnesota @ Indianapolis

MIN +3

The Colts got hit with some injuries in Week 1, and that defense looked awful. At least the Vikings have the excuse of going up against the Packers. Indy lost to the Jaguars.

Jacksonville @ Tennessee

JAX +9

I don’t believe Jacksonville will win this game, but they’ll keep it close. Tennessee had horrible kicking troubles and have a shorter week.

Buffalo @ Miami

BUF -5.5

Buffalo may be the best team in the AFC East. Josh Allen has turned into a good quarterback, and Miami is still rebuilding, not looking forward to this one.

Los Angeles Rams @ Philadelphia

LAR -1

I am legitimately scared for Carson Wentz this week. Washington Football Team sacked Wentz eight times last week, and now he goes up against Aaron Donald. I’ll pray for you, Wentz.

Denver @ Pittsburgh

PIT -7.5

Pittsburgh looked excellent in Week 1. Is Big Ben back? Denver has found it’s QB of the future, but they just need more time. This week goes to the Steelers.

Carolina @ Tampa

CAR +9.5

I know Carolina’s defense isn’t great, but 9.5 seems high. Brady and Tampa did not have a good first game, and I think that carries over. Tampa will probably win, but Carolina cover.

Washington @ Arizona

ARI -6.5

Arizona looked fantastic in Week 1. Murray and Hopkins are a duo made in heaven and will make for a great show this year. Washington pulled off a surprise last week, but the magic stops for now.

Kansas City @ Los Angeles Chargers

KC -8.5

Kansas City put the hurt on Houston last week and still left many points on the table. The rust will be shaken off, and they’ll hammer a Chargers team that barely beat a rookie.

Baltimore @ Houston

BAL -7

I won’t go as far as Cowherd in saying that Baltimore will go undefeated this season. They’ll lose at some point, but it’s not this week. I am just hoping for a good showing by Watson for the sake of my fantasy team.

New England @ Seattle

SEA -4

I said last week that I don’t like betting against Belichick. But Seattle may be the best team in football behind the Chiefs. Wilson has been unleashed, and the Patriots are missing tons of starters on defense. Seattle covers the spread.

New Orleans @ Las Vegas

NO -6

The Raiders are in a weird spot. I’m still not sure what to do with them. I know what I’m getting with New Orleans, so I’ll bet with what I know.

Andrew

Cincinnati @ Cleveland

CLE -6

It’s hard to bet with the Browns because they’re the Browns, but they have too much talent to drop a game to the Bengals. A rookie QB with short prep time will spell doom for Cincy.

San Francisco @ New York Jets

SF -7

I have never in my career as a journalist let my fandom out into the world, but: I’m a big Jets fan. But they break my heart every time, and it’ll happen again on Sunday. No way they cover the spread—49ers in a landslide.

New York Giants @ Chicago

NYG +5.5

Chicago got lucky. They pulled off a remarkable comeback against the Lions but nearly lost it on a last-second touchdown pass. Lucky for them, the rookie running back had butterfingers. As for the Giants, while Saquan could not get anything going rushing wise, he and Darius Slayton looked great catching the ball. New York wins if Daniel Jones doesn’t fumble.

Atlanta @ Dallas

DAL -4.5

America’s team had a chance against the Rams, but couldn’t finish. Meanwhile, Atlanta fell flat on their face. I think the Cowboys have a statement worthy win on Sunday.

Detroit @ Green Bay

GB -6

Aaron Rodgers is a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad man. That’s the tweet.

Minnesota @ Indianapolis

MIN +3

Indy opened the season -8.5 against the Jaguars and lost! Minnesota fell in a shootout to Rodgers, and the Packers, showing their offense is still potent, even without Stephon Diggs. MIN at +3 is a bet I’d take any day.

Buffalo @ Miami

BUF -5.5

Buffalo is going to have a good year, even with Josh Allen fumbling the ball a lot. Miami won’t have a good year, not one bit. I’d be willing to take BUF -14; I’m that confident.

Los Angeles Rams @ Philadelphia

PHI +1

Carson Wentz led a tremendous first half for the Eagles, but something happened during halftime, where the entire offensive line turned on him. Eight sacks. Ouch. If he didn’t sustain any injuries from that game, and his offensive line holds up, Philly should bounce back.

Denver @ Pittsburgh

Denver +7

Von Miller is out for the year, but that didn’t stop Denver from almost beating the Titans on MNF. I’m not super confident about the Steelers at -7.5 unless Juju goes off again. Pitt sustained a lot of injuries in Week 1, which has me leaning towards Denver.

Carolina @ Tampa

CAR +9.5

This one’s tricky. On the one hand, the Bucs didn’t look too hot in their loss to the Saints, but we’re talking about Tom Brady, and he has a ton of weapons. While the Panthers lost last week, they come in at +9.5, and Christian McCaffrey is always a threat to score. Carolina covers the spread in a loss.

Washington @ Arizona

ARI -6.5

Washington got super lucky. Won’t happen twice. Kyle Murray and DeAndre Hopkins are the QB-WR pairing 2020 wished we didn’t have. Arizona with the spread. 

Kansas City @ Los Angeles Chargers

KC -8.5

Chiefs at -8.5 against a Chargers team with a journeyman QB? Say less. Spread, and then some.

Baltimore @ Houston

BAL -7

Not only do I think the Ravens win with the -7.0 spread, but I’d also take Draft Kings over 14.5 points at the half. Double down, and take the cash. Sorry, Deshaun.

New England @ Seattle

SEA -4

A rematch of Super Bowl 49. But not exactly. I think Seattle easily covers the -4.0 spread; Russell Wilson was near perfect in Week 1.

New Orleans @ Las Vegas

NO -6

I don’t trust Derek Carr, not one bit. But man Josh Jacobs had an insane Week 1, rushing for three TD’s. Can Jacobs go for that again, this time against a better Saints defense? I don’t think so—Saints with the spread.
