Lenny Del Genio – NFL Week 2 Blog09/16/2010
Another week of football Picks is upon us and for the oddsmakers edge each week on NFL betting, you can turn to former oddsmaker Lenny Del Genio, who helps you beat the sports betting line at Vegas Experts.
Kansas City at Cleveland - This is a rematch from last year’s exciting 41-37 win by the Browns in Arrowhead Stadium. There is a great system that says to play against home teams favored by, or getting less than, three points, off a road loss, if they had a losing record last season. The system’s 25-year record is 44-16 ATS!
Buffalo at Green Bay – You know the Bills are going to be bad when they are already a double digit dog this early into the season. They are a perfect 6-0 ATS after a loss by six points or less.
Philadelphia at Detroit – This line has jumped significantly during the week from Eagles -3 to Eagles -6. The QB situation is the biggest storyline with Vick starting for Philly and Stafford out 3-4 weeks for the Lions.
Chicago at Dallas – Clearly, the oddsmakers are expecting a bounce back effort from the Cowboys. The Bears have covered just one of their last nine in the road underdog role.
Arizona at Atlanta – Falcons went 6-2 SU/ATS at home last year. The Cardinals historically never perform well East of the Mississippi. Atlanta has revenge from a playoff loss two years ago.
Miami at Minnesota – The Vikings were 9-0 SU at home last year and get three extra days to prepare.
St. Louis at Oakland – This is one of several battles between bad teams on the NFL Week 2 card. Last two meetings were both won by the Rams – by a combined score of 48-13.
Houston at Washington – Will there be a letdown for the Texans after the big win over Indianapolis? Houston is 2-10 ATS off SU dog win in franchise history.
Jacksonville at San Diego. Expect a big bouceback effort from the Lightning Bolts following the Monday night loss. They are just 5-5 SU/ATS in September home games, however.
New England at NY Jets – This could be the marquee game on the Week 2 card. No one is going to want to bet the Jets after the Week 1 dud vs. Baltimore and they are three-point home dogs. However, road favorites that scored 24 or more points in the first half of their last game are just 9-30 ATS last five seasons.
