After a dose of Week 1, we take a quick trip around the NFL and give you what we think are our value picks for NFL Week number 2.

New Orleans Saints (1-0) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1)

After having a great game except for the penalty that cost his team the ball game, Lavonte David and the Bucs have been waiting 7 long days after a game that they had in the bag. This week, they face the high-powered offense known as the New Orleans Saints led by the Drew Brees.

Running back Doug Martin and quarterback Josh Freeman didn’t have a great game in Week 1 and expect to see a lot more of Martin. That still won’t be enough to stop Drew Brees and the New Orleans passing game. This game could be high scoring, but New Orleans covers the spread after a week 1 win over Atlanta.

NFL Pick: Bet the Saints -3 (-115) at Ladbrokes

Detroit Lions (1-0) at Arizona Cardinals (0-1)

The Detroit Lions are riding high after a week 1 win and major contributions from Reggie Bush and Matthew Stafford. Bush had 191 all-purpose yards along with 1 touchdown while Stafford threw for 357 yards and 2 TD. The Lions travel to the desert to face Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals.

Although Arizona is coming off of a week 1 27-24 loss to St. Louis, Palmer has found a place that he can call home and has gotten Fitzgerald more involved in the offense along with rookie wide receiver, Michael Floyd. Look for this to be another close game as the Lions are a 1 point favorite on the road in the NFL odds. I look for Palmer and company to put on a show in their first home game of the season, for my sports picks.

NFL Pick: Chose the Cardinals +2 at Wiliam Hill

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1) at Oakland Raiders (1-0)

Both teams are coming off of a loss, but the Jags got smashed by the Kansas City Chiefs, 28-2 and Oakland quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, looked really good in week 1, amassing 217 yards through the air and rushing for 112 yards. The question is whether Terrelle Pryor is the real deal or did he have a lucky week number 1? I think Pryor has a major upside and look for him to run up and down the field on Jacksonville on Sunday as the Raiders prevail.

NFL Pick: Take the Raiders -3 (-125) at Bet365

The Manning Bowl

Denver Broncos (1-0) at New York Giants (0-1)

Even at an advanced age, Peyton Manning looks like he made the proper choice in choosing to play with Denver. Manning threw for 7 touchdowns in week 1 against the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens. Now, he get’s to face his brother, Eli Manning, who as actually won more Super Bowls than he does, but is not as good a player, To compound things for Eli, he’s coming off of a disappointing week 1 loss to Dallas and the running back position is in question after the Giants signed Brandon Jacobs. Will Victor Cruz be doing the Salsa Dance at MetLife Stadium this Sunday or will Peyton Manning be connecting with Demarius Thomas , Eric Decker, and Wes Welker? Although Eli is as clutch as it gets, big brother gets the best of little brother on the road as the Broncos cover the spread.

NFL Pick: Bet the Broncos -4.5 on the spread at Bovada, for your NFL picks.

Good luck to everyone on Week 2 of the NFL!
