Patriots among 7 road favorites

NFL betting is always full of surprises, but who would have expected this week’s matchup between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills to be a battle of undefeated teams?

The Patriots starting off 2-0 isn’t any surprise, as they are now 16-2 SU in their last 18 regular season games. But for a Buffalo team that finished last season 4-12, the hot start is a bit of a head-scratcher.

Monday Night Odds: Giants vs Rams

The Rams and Giants get the Monday Night spotlight a week after each team was handled with ease by the Eagles and Redskins respectively to open their seasons.

The Giants have covered 5 in a row against St. Louis, where injuries kept the line from opening early on Monday night but the line went up at -6 for the home side. [ Get a Monday Night freeby $10 bet through a cool little promotion from TopBet ]

Historic Point Spread in Lions Game

It’s a once-per-decade occurrence cropping up on the Week 2 NFL odds menu – the Detroit Lions favored by 9 points.

If you wondered aloud when the last time the sad-sack Lions were favored by so much, the answer is Christmas Eve, 2000.The Bears were in town, Stoney Case and Charlie Batch were the Lion QBs and they lost (go figure) 23-20 on a last-second, 54-yard field goal by Paul Edinger.

Falcons vs Eagles Betting Preview

You can talk about the Eagles and their 10-1-1 ATS run against the Falcons and you can talk any other betting angle you want in the Sunday Nighter on NBC. The truth is this - this is all about Michael Vick returning to Atlanta as the QB of the Eagles.

Philly opened as small favorites here, a week after dominating the Rams. But Atlanta needs the win, after its Week 1 disappointment in Chicago, after which Roddy White apologized to fantasy owners for his poor showing.

As underdogs, the Falcons have not had much bite. This is the first time they are home dogs since 2009 but they are just 2-8 SU when getting points. The Eagles on the other hand are 8-2 ATS in the past 10 road games as a favorite.

Brady vs Rivers in Pats Chargers Clash

San Diego has lost 6 of its past 7 trips to New England and fans in Foxboro will be rocking after their team's Week 1 fireworks on Monday Night.

Both teams won in Week 1, but the Chargers needed three TDs from Mike Tolbert to edge the Vikings while the Patriots got 517 passing yards from Tom Brady in a win at Miami.

The past three meetings have played UNDER the total however, which may push bettors toward the spread. [ PLAY FREE NFL BANKROLL CONTEST - STARTS THIS WEEK! $1,000 UP FOR GRABS ]

League: 

Titans Home Dogs vs Hot Ravens

Baltimore had seven takeaways in its Week 1 romp over Pittsburgh and they are favored by one point for every turnover as they head to Tennessee in Week 2.

The Ravens opened as 7-point chalk against a Titans team that got two scores from Kenny Britt, but not much else in a loss to the Jaguars. But with a week of practice under Chris Johnson's belt, are the Titans a threat here?

The threat may be an UNDER bet, as 7 of the past 8 meetings between these teams went that way.

Dolphins Seek First Ever Win vs Texans

Fresh off vanquishing their nemesis from Indianapolis in Week 1, the Houston Texans get a team in Week 2 to which they have never lost.

The Texans were 2-16 SU lifetime against the Colts before their romp Sunday and are 5-0 SU career vs the Dolphins, a team coming off a Monday Night loss.

Bengals Never Win in Denver

Cincinnati hits the road for a second straight week, facing a Denver team playing on a short week after their Monday Nighter against Oakland.

And they arrive at a spot where they almost always lose. The Bengals are just 2-11 SU their past 13 trips to Colorado, but that hasn't stopped more than 61% of OddsShark voters from picking the Bengals at +3.5 (at TopBet) this Sunday.

Cowboys Getting Most Betting Action

Dallas may have blown its Week 1 road game against the Jets but oddsmakers feel they won't do it again, installing them as 3-point favorites at San Francisco this week.

The teams have met five times since 2000 and the OVER has prevailed each time. Given the outburst in the 49ers opener and the powerful Cowboy offense, this is an OVER candidate again over at TopBet.

Dallas has been a reliable road bet in September, going 7-1 ATS since 2007 and are are 7-1 ATS past 8 September road games.
