Prisco’s NFL Week 2 picks: Giants go to 2-0 with win over Panthers, Saints knock off Tom Brady again

Powered by Caesars Sportsbook

The first week of the NFL season is always so unpredictable. So I will be happy with my first week of picks after seeing what transpired in Week 1. 

I went 7-8-1 straight up, which stinks. I went 8-8 against the spread, which is so-so. But the great news is that I went 5-1 with my best bets as part of the Pick Six Podcast. And if not for me adding the Jacksonville Jaguars late, it would have been a clean sweep. Even that looked good for a while, too.

So let’s get back at it in what I call get-even week in the NFL. Teams that looked bad in Week 1 probably won’t look that way in the second week, while the reverse is likely true for some of the winners. It won’t always play out that way, but I think it will this week in a lot of the games.

Time to get the straight-up record back on track but, most of all, let’s stay hot with the best bets.

Featured Game | Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers

This is the game of the week with Justin Herbert against Patrick Mahomes. That is a treat anytime they meet, and Arrowhead will be rocking on Thursday night. The Chiefs rolled against the Cardinals with Mahomes lighting things up. But the Chargers can rush the passer with Khalil Mack and Joey Bosa. Look for a high-scoring game with the Chiefs winning a close one. 

Pick: Chiefs 31, Chargers 30

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS, Paramount+)

Featured Game | Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins and Ravens both won in impressive fashion last week, but now Miami goes on the road for the first time. The Dolphins dominated the Ravens last year at home, but this will be different. The Ravens and Lamar Jackson get the best of the Dolphins. 

Pick: Ravens 27, Dolphins 20
