NFL Week 2 Top Three Picks

chargers at bengals Week 2

Fast starts help build big bankrolls when it comes to betting on the NFL and there is nothing better than cashing in on all three of last week’s top picks. After breaking down all the matchups on this Sunday’s NFL slate, I have come up with this week’s “Top Three Picks” for the games using BetOnline’s NFL betting odds.

Sunday, Sept. 20

San Francisco 49ers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5.5)

The 49ers are coming off a 20-3 victory against Minnesota as 2.5-point home underdogs while the Steelers will be looking to rebound from a 28-21 loss to New England as seven-point underdogs on the road. The problem for San Francisco is it will now have to travel to the East Coast on a short week after playing on Monday night to face a well-rested Pittsburgh team that has been itching to get back on the field since last Thursday.

San Francisco failed to cover against the spread in its previous six games while the Steelers have gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven games at home. Playing at Heinz Field is tough enough, but it only gets worse when you have to face the Steelers coming off a loss. Lay the 5.5 points and take the home team in this one.

San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals (OVER 46)

Both the Chargers and the Bengals put on an offensive show in their season openers. San Diego outlasted Detroit 33-28 as a three-point home favorite and Cincinnati rolled to a 33-13 victory over Oakland as a three-point road favorite. Philip Rivers threw for 404 yards and two scores in the Chargers’ win and the Bengals amassed close to 400 yards of total offense against the Raiders.

The total has gone OVER in four of San Diego’s last six games on the road and it has also gone OVER in five of Cincinnati’s last six games at home. Look for both teams to light things up again this Sunday to take this game OVER the 46-point total line.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Giants (-2)

The new-look Falcons rolled up and down the field on offense and stuffed Philadelphia for the first two quarters in Monday’s 26-24 opening day win as three-point home underdogs, but they still needed a missed field goal in the closing minutes to seal the win. New York basically handed Dallas a victory on Sunday night in 27-26 setback as a seven point road underdog. Atlanta’s defense began to wear down in that game, which could set the stage for a big day for Eli Manning and the Giants’ offense.

The Falcons have struggled to win on the road with a straight-up record of 4-12 in their last 16 games, while the Giants have gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games. Lay the two points and go with New York to bounce back in a big way this Sunday.
