NFL Week 2 Betting Review

It wasn't a good week to be betting favorites, while those betting underdogs on the moneyline made an absolute killing.

Back in Week 1, the favorites put up an ATS record of 9-7. Not very profitable if you rode favorites all the way, but at least you wouldn't have lost your shirt. If you rode the favorites in Week 2, not only would your shirt be gone, but your pants and shoes might be missing too. The favorites were 8-7 SU in Week 2 and a dreadful 5-9-1 ATS.

Packers Heavy Week 2 Favorites

Losing Ryan Grant hasn't diminished the Green Bay Packers in the eyes of the oddsmakers this week, as they're the biggest favorite of Week 2 in their matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

The Packers are nearly a two-touchdown favorite at home against Buffalo this week as a 13-point chalk on the Packers Bills odds list. Green Bay's offense fizzled at times last week against Philadelphia, but they could take full flight against a Buffalo squad that will be missing LB Paul Posluszny.
