NFL Week 2 lines: 5 best bets on favorites

Which favorites are going to cover and then some? We look at the five best bets of the favorites across the NFL Week 2 lines.

5. Kansas City Chiefs (-3.5) at Baltimore Ravens

The Chiefs have played the Ravens three times in the Patrick Mahomes-Lamar Jackson era. Kansas City’s record is 3-0. Last year, Mahomes threw for five touchdowns in a 34-20 win over Baltimore on the road, while Jackson accounted for 97 passing yards. This time around, Jackson is surrounded by a litany of injured and new players, while Mahomes has a healthy unit around him. Tough spot for the Ravens, especially on a short week.

4. San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Philadelphia Eagles

It’s hard to figure what the Eagles are. Philadelphia was supposed to be one of the league’s worst teams in the estimation of most, but then went out and pounded the Atlanta Falcons, 32-6, in Week 1. Now the Eagles welcome in the 49ers to Lincoln Financial Field, after their wild 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions. This is a tricky game for San Francisco, which has to fly across the country and play in the early window. Still, Kyle Shanahan’s group is far more talented and won’t be sleeping on Philly after last weekend.

3. Denver Broncos (-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars

Did you see the Jaguars in Week 1 against the Houston Texans? Houston, who one believe might be the worst team in the league after an ugly offseason — to say the least — pummeled the Jaguars. Jacksonville now returns home to take on the 1-0 Broncos, who took care of the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium with ease. Denver has a better roster and despite having to cover six points, should be in great shape to handle business.

2. New England Patriots (-6) at New York Jets

Bill Belichick is one of the smartest head coaches to ever put on a headset. Over his years, he’s been brutal on rookie quarterbacks, and now he takes on Zach Wilson and the Jets. Wilson, who was pounded by the Carolina Panthers, now faces an excellent front in New England. The Patriots also have a rushing attack which can eat clock, while their own rookie quarterback, Mac Jones, can find tight ends Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry against  New York’s so-so defense.

1. Green Bay Packers (-11.5) vs. Detroit Lions

The Packers were beat 38-3 by the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. Now they come back for the home opener on Monday night against the overmatched Lions. This should be the lock of the week.
