Will making our NFL Picks get any easier now that we've had a week to digest the landscape? Here's a complete breakdown of our plays.

Washington Redskins vs. Green Bay Packers

Neither the Packers or Redskins won in Week 1 – who gets their first victory this Sunday? Jason Lake is on Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay, whom are favored by 6.5 points on the NFL odds boards.

 

NFL NFL Pick  Packers -6.5

 

Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs

It was a great showing from the Chiefs in their dismantling of the Jaguars and now it's time for their home opener. Kansas City is tough to beat Arrowhead, so David Lawrence is on the hosts.

 

NFL Pick: Chiefs -2.5

 

Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears

It certainly wasn't easy, but the Bears did just enough to overcome the pesky Bengals in Week 1. Now they take on a division rival in Minnesota, with Joe Freda opting to take the chalk with Chicago.

 

NFL Pick: Bears -6

 

St. Louis Rams vs. Atlanta Falcons

One would have to think the Falcons will come out with extra motivation after losing to the Saints last weekend. They'll be buoyed by the home crowd, but Joe Freda is selecting the Rams at plus seven.

 

NFL Pick: Rams +7

 

Miami Dolphins vs. Indianapolis Colts

David Lawrence has broken down this matchup and doesn't believe the Dolphins are likely to start the season at 2-0. The Colts are at home and are trading at a reasonable number.

 

NFL Pick: Colts -2.5

 

Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens ran into the wall known as Peyton Manning last Thursday, but have had ample time to prepare for this visit of Cleveland. Doug Upstone is all over Baltimore here.

 

NFL Pick: Ravens -7

 

San Diego Chargers vs. Philadelphia Eagles

It was a horrible way to close out Monday Night Football for the Chargers, as they coughed up a huge lead. San Diego faces a tough test in Philadelphia, but this is a heck of lot of points to be giving.

 

NFL Pick: Chargers +9.5

 

Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans

One of the bigger “upsets” of Week 1 was Tennessee's fairly convincing win over Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. We are on the Titans again in Week 2, with the road team getting almost double digits.

 

NFL Pick: Titans +9

Carolina Panthers vs. Buffalo Bills

An interesting statistic from Doug Upstone shows the Bills have covered in only one of their previous eight games after playing the Patriots. He'll be recommending Carolina at minus three.

 

NFL Pick: Panthers -3

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It looks as if the arrival of Rob Ryan to sort out that New Orleans defense has been paying off, as the Saints did nice work against Atlanta last weekend. This week though Jason Lake is going against New Orleans.

 

NFL Pick: Buccaneers +3.5

 

Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals

Detroit won and Arizona lost in Week 1, but the Cardinals definitely put up a fight and are a much better team at home. As a result, Jason Lake will be making a play on Arizona at plus two.

 

NFL Pick: Cardinals +2

 

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Oakland Raiders

Terrelle Pryor is giving Oakland fans hope, but should the Raiders really be favored by this many points against anybody? Joe Freda doesn't think so and is on Jacksonville at +5.5.

 

NFL Pick: Jaguars +5.5

Denver Broncos vs. New York Giants

Another edition of the Manning Bowl has arrived and it's Peyton and the Broncos that are favored despite being on the road. Jason Lake sees NFL betting value on New York at home here though. 

NFL Pick: Giants +4.5

 

San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks 

There's no love lost between these two franchises and the (un)pleasantries continue this Sunday. After breaking down the NFL odds and statistics, Jason Lake will be adding the Seahawks as small home chalk.

 

NFL Pick: Seahawks -2.5

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Steelers looked absolutely dreadful offensively against the Titans and it won't get much easier against Cincinnati's stingy defensive unit. Jordan Sharp has decided to recommend the Bengals against the spread.

 

NFL Pick: Bengals -6.5 at Bet 365 sportsbook
