Week 2 NFL Betting Primer

There were a few standout numbers from Week 1 including underdogs going 9-5-2 ATS. Looking back to last season, the underdog record after Week 2 was 16-15-1, so we might see more favorites come out on top this week.

Week 1 also saw six underdogs earn straight-up wins, which is on par with 2015’s mark of five in Week 1. Underdogs performed especially well in Week 2 last season, picking up eight SU wins, so keep a close eye on those underdogs in games with a tight spread.

Cardinals are Skidding at the Wrong Time

The San Francisco Giants’ slide since the All-Star break has been well documented, but they aren’t dead in the water yet. The Giants look to post their third straight win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 3-8 in Samardzija's last 11 starts.
  • The OVER is 7-3 in Leake's last 10 road starts.
  • The OVER is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in San Francisco.

Mike Leake and Jeff Samardzija are slated to take the mound. Leake (9-10, 4.60 ERA) is 5-2 with a 5.02 ERA in nine career games against San Fran. The 28-year-old played nine games for the Giants last year before signing a five-year contract with the Cards in the offseason.

Samardzija (11-10, 4.07) is 2-2 in his last seven starts while allowing a total of two home runs over the stretch. The pitcher owns a 4-4 mark with a 4.61 ERA in 20 career games against the Cardinals.

UNDER bettors are profiting when the Cardinals take the diamond. In St. Louis’ last eight games, the UNDER is 6-2.
