Tennessee @ Florida — Under 58.5

Florida's underwhelming start to the season in the opening loss against Utah has me doubting them. It just feels wrong that Graham Mertz gets to wear Tebow's #15.

Both teams have excellent run games and I'm sure will be burning clock with their rushing attack. Having witnessed Joe Milton as a Michigan fan, I know about his strong arm. If you need 60 yards, he'll throw it 60. If you need 10, he'll throw it 60. I don't trust either QB to light it up so I'm riding with the under here.

Tipico bettors: 60% of money on TENN -6 and 55% on U 58.5

Week 2 bets on X -- Check it out here (1:27 mark)

Western Kentucky @ Ohio State — Western Kentucky +30

Good teams win, great teams cover. OSU has yet to cover, and I see no reason to believe they will cover this week either. The game started at -28, and now I'm seeing it at -30.

I think if the Buckeyes are for real, they need to take care of business. Kyle McCord, Marvin Harrison Jr. — I'm calling on you to show out. Western Kentucky can put up points (92 in the first two) so I'm picking them to cover against the Buckeyes.

Tipico bettors: 80% OSU, majority U 65.5

Colorado State @ Colorado — Colorado -23.5

Gameday, night game, primetime. Colorado should take care of business against an overmatched CSU team that struggles to score. Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter should light up the scoreboard.

Tipico bettors: 97% CU -23.5


Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals — Over 46

It was tough to see JK Dobbins go down. The Ravens won but it was ugly for most of the game. Zay Flowers had some impressive flashes, and it looks like Lamar has the best weapons he has had from the receiving corps since he has been in Baltimore.

Elise Jesse goes inside the Bengal locker room to preview the game against the Ravens. Read it here.

Meanwhile, Joe Burrow and the Bengals could not have looked any worse last week. We’ll chalk it up to dealing with tough weather and a tough defense. The spread in this is maybe my least favorite line to bet on. I'm looking at over 46, as I expect both QBs to let it fly.

Tipico bettors: 61% on the over

Las Vegas Raiders @ Buffalo Bills — Bills -8.5

Even with Rodgers going down on Monday night, Josh Allen could not take care of business. The three picks were slightly misleading, as the first one was essentially a punt.

I'm looking for the Bills to have a statement game against a Raiders team that had a close one against the Broncos. Bills -8.5.

Tipico bettors: 63% on the Bills -8.5

Week 1 Takeaways: Proper Reaction or Overreaction?

Kansas City Chiefs @ Jacksonville Jaguars — Over 51.5

The highest total of the week and for good reason. Both teams have offenses with high expectations. I fully look for the Chiefs to come out swinging, however,

I don’t see them stopping Trevor Lawrence and the Jags, who look to bring momentum from last season. Chris Jones hasn't played since February, so I don't anticipate a huge impact right away. Bet the over.

Tipico bettors: 70% on the over

New York Jets @ Dallas Cowboys — Under 38

Called it last week and I'll call it again. The Jets might be an all-time defense. I don't care how good the Cowboys looked in Week 1 — don't be fooled. The Jets will contain Dak and Zach Wilson will continue to be bad.

This feels like the easiest under on the board despite being the lowest total in Week 2.

Tipico bettors: 42% on the under

Miami Dolphins @ New England Pats — Dolphins -3

Tua now has the second-best MVP odds (670) behind just Mahomes after that Week 1 performance. It seems like the Eagles love giving up early leads (I had Eagles spread last night) so don't be fooled by the close game last week.

Tyreek has a legit chance at breaking 2k yards this year. The Dolphins are going to win and win convincingly -3.

Tipico bettors: 77% on Patriots +3

Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers — Browns -2.5

I don't think the Browns were as good as they showed last week, and I don't think the Steelers are as bad as they were last week. The spread of Browns -2.5 accurately reflects what I predict will be a dogfight.

Big Play TV's Chris McNeil goes 'Three Deep' to analyze how the Browns will do against the Steelers. Read it here.

It'll come down to whether the Steelers can score points. The Niners might have the best team in the league so let's see if the Steelers have an offense this season.

Tipico bettors: 13% on Browns -2.5
