Week 2 Betting Picks & Tips
This week kicks off with the classic AFC East rivalry with the Patriots hosting the Jets at home in New England on Thursday night. With Rex Ryan’s position as head coach in jeopardy after a dismal 2012 season; Bill Belichik was conversely named “Top Coach” by NFL General Managers It’s hard to imagine either coach is taking the showdown any less seriously than the other.
Even with such a classic grudge match on tap, the “game of the week” award has to go to the Broncos and Giants for obvious reasons. Peyton is 2-0 against baby bro and undoubtedly looking to remind him for the third time which of them is the elder. With LB Von Miller serving the second of his six-game suspension the Broncos will be less one very formidable tool in their arsenal.
Many would argue that as great a matchup as the “Manning Bowl” might be, the most exciting of this week’s exhibitions will take place on Monday night when the 49ers take on Coach Carroll’s Seahawks. Believed by most to be the powerhouses in the NFC West, both teams have great talent both on offense and defense. Russell Wilson promises a more productive start than last year where he didn’t really catch his stride until later in the season. Even with talent at the RB position like Marshawn Lynch; San Fran’s defensive unit is perhaps the most effective in the league as of right now.
The Steelers performance against Cincinnati on Monday night will be an interesting one as will many of their games this season. After a shaky year in 2012 Big Ben and the boys went 0-4 this preseason leaving many skeptical about what’s to come. Roethlisberger is in the tenth year of his NFL career having been with Pittsburgh for the entirety.
