Jared Bets the NFL Week 2

Disclaimer: This isn’t gambling advice. Any gambling you do is at your own risk.

In Week 1, I was accurate in 10/15 games and didn’t bother to put an article up before Thursday Night Football because I figured everyone already knew who was going to win, so technically, I was 11/16 with the spread in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.

68.8% correct with the spread is way above board, but this is a “what have you done for me lately” industry, so we won’t gloat too hard. I did, after all, say the Colts would win 28-0.

Let’s get down to business. Road team/odds are always first.

Thursday Night Football

Bengals +6 vs. Browns -6

I don’t have enough liquidity to gamble like I want to on this game. It’s Burrow Time.


Falcons +4.5 vs. Cowboys -4.5

I bet straight up on this game and take the Cowboys in a thriller.

Bills -5.5 vs. Dolphins +5.5

I want the Dolphins to be competitive, but I think the Bills are just a better team.

Panthers +9 vs. Buccaneers -9

This is a game that could get ugly early and Carolina come roaring back. Watch.

Broncos +7.5 vs. Steelers -7.5

I have a feeling the Broncos, while lesser due to the loss of Von Miller, put up a fight so we’ll take them and those points. This is close.

Lions +6 vs. Packers -6

No faith in the Lions and all the faith in the Packers until they show me otherwise.

Jaguars +8 vs. Titans -8

I’m a betting man, so I’ll take the Jags and the points here. They’re worse, but not much worse.

Rams +1 vs. Eagles -1

I’m hearing Miles Sanders could be a full go at game time. If that’s the case, give me the Eagles with the home stand.

Vikings +3 vs. Colts -3

I want the Colts to win, I just don’t think they will and until they show me otherwise, they’re a middling team. Meanwhile, the Vikings are a Playoff team.

Giants +5.5 vs. Bears -5.5

I would take the Bears by double digits.

49ers -6.5 vs. Jets +6.5

I would take the 49ers by double digits.

WAS +7 vs. Cardinals -7

I think this game is closer than a TD.

Ravens -7 vs. Texans +7

Ravens by double digits.

Chiefs -8.5 vs. Chargers +8.5

I’m hesitant, but content to say Chiefs by 10.

Patriots +4 vs. Seahawks -4

My fear is that the Patriots are for real with Caaaaaaaaaam. No! Not this nightmare again. Seahawks put their foot down at home!
