Minnesota Vikings vs. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts vs. Vikings matchup starts at 1:00pm EST at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts, on FOX. Week 1 showed Adrian Peterson is still to be feared, even after injury, as the Vikings picked up their first win. The Colts lost week 1 and will look to rebound in week 2 behind highly-touted rookie QB Andrew Luck. All 4 major sportsbooks have the week 2 lines set with the Vikings winning by 3 points.

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers

The Saints vs. Panthers matchup will start at 1:00 pm EST on FOX, with the Panthers hosting at Bank of America Stadium. This should be an offensive shootout loaded with scoring via Drew Brees to Darren Sproles and on the legs of Cam Newton. This looks to be a close matchup with the sportsbooks putting the spread at 3 or lower, and each with a different line. Check out our live NFL betting lines to pick the best sportsbook for you in week 2.

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Texans vs. Jaguars matchup begins at 1:00 pm EST on CBS, with Jacksonville hosting Houston at EverBank Field. This AFC South division rivalry has the Jaguars trying to pick up their first win, while the Texans attempt to start the season on top 2-0. With Rashad Jennings out, Maurice Jones-Drew should get a full workload to keep fantasy football owners happy. Will it be enough against the Texans defense and the scary Schaub to Johnson combo? BetOnline and JustBet have the spread with the Texans winning by 7, while Bovada has them winning by 7.5, and 5Dimes keeping it closer with the Texans winning by 4. The Texans Jaguars week 2 lines are in the upper 200 to lower 300s, so there’s plenty of money to be won on this game.

Oakland Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins

The Raiders vs. Dolphins game starts at 1:00pm EST on CBS, with the Dolphins hosting the Raiders at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. This matchup features two teams searching for their first win in week 2. Can rookie QB Ryan Tannehil, whose wife is featured in our WAGs vs. Cheerleaders poll,  defeat Darren McFadden and the Raiders. The sportsbook spreads have this as a close game predicting the Raiders to win by 1, 2, or 3 points. Check out our live week 2 nfl betting lines to go with the spread that aligns with your own predictions for the week 2 Raiders Dolphins game.

Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots

The Cardinals vs. Patriots matchup begins at 1:00pm EST at Gillette Stadium on FOX. This is the game to bet on if you want to win big money, or if you just want a safe bet. Tom Brady and the Pats are expected to destroy the Cardinals and their yearly QB woes. The closest Cardinals Patriots spread available is at 13.5 points. The week 2 NFL money line is massive at 5Dimes and JustBet with the NE Patriots at -800 for this potential blowout of a Patriots Cardinals game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Giants

The Buccaneers vs. Giants game starts at 1:00 pm EST at MetLife Stadium on FOX. The defending Super Bowl champion NY Giants look to rebound in week 2 after a loss to the Cowboys in week 1. The TB Bucs look to build on a week 1 victory with another in NFL’s week 2. Most Giants Buccaneers spreads have the Giants at -7, though some offer New York at -8. Let’s see if Eli can cover that spread for week 2 against Tampa.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles vs. Ravens game gets started with a 1:00 pm kickoff time at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly, and can be watched on CBS. Both teams won in NFL’s week 1, but the Eagles didn’t exactly soar to victory over the lowly Browns.  Michael Vick will have his work cut out for him in week 2 vs. the Ravens defense, still anchored by Ray Lewis, especially if Jackson and Maclin are out. This Eagles Ravens game is one of the closest matchups of week 2, with two sportsbooks setting the spread with the Eagles at -1. Bovada has the Baltimore Ravens at +3 and the money line at -320. Betting on the Ravens Eagles game will be a tough call, but a fun game to watch!

Washington Redskins vs. St. Louis Rams

The Redskins vs. Rams matchup kicks off at 4:05 pm EST in St Louis at Edward Jones Dome, and can be seen on FOX. RG3 will be the man to watch in the week 2 Redskins Rams game. He hardly looked like a rookie in a week 2 win with 2 scores through the air. Alfred Morries emerged as coach Shanahan’s prime running back, but who knows if that’ll continue in week 2. With nothing much more than Stephen Jackson and Sam Bradford, the sportsbooks have the Rams Redskins spread with Washington at -3.5.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Cowboys vs. Seahawks matchup begins at 4:05 in the afternoon on FOX at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The Cowboys are still on a high after a week 1 victory over the defending champion NY Giants. The Seahawks didn’t fare as well and will look to rebound in NFL’s week 2 vs. Dallas. Can young Russell Wilson really beat the nasty Dallas defense? Should the Seahawks have kept T.O.? Ok, probably not, but the sportsbooks have this week 2 matchup closer than you might think. The spread has the Cowboys at -3 or -3.5 and the moneyline at -190 for the Cowboys. The Cowboys Seahawks game will be one of the better matchups this Sunday afternoon.

New York Jets vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Jets vs. Steelers game kicks off in the second half of Sunday action at 4:25pm at Heinz Field in Pitt and can be watched on CBS. The NY Jets won in week 1 while the Steelers lost and will look to come out firing against the Jets and their top NFL defense in week 2. However, according to ESPN, Revis may have to sit in week 2, which could open up the airways for big Ben Roethlisberger. Mark Sanchez will be hoping to prove week 1’s performance was no fluke. The NFL week 2 Jets Steelers spread has the Jets at +5 or 6. The money line for this Steelers Jets matchup is in the 200’s.

San Diego Chargers vs Tennessee Titans

The Chargers vs. Titans game starts late in the day at 4:25 pm EST at Qualcomm Stadium, and shows on CBS.  The Chargers won in week 1 despite a lackluster running game and will look to pick that up in week 2 vs. the Titans. Tennessee took a loss in week 1 and barely escaped an injury to young Jake Locker. Chris Johnson was terrible in last week’s game, which might be why the NFL spread in week 2 for the Titans Chargers game has San Diego at -7.

Detroit Lions vs. San Francisco 49ers

The Lions vs 49ers game kicks off at 8:20 pm EST on NBC as the Sunday night game at Candlestick Park. This Lions 49ers matchup will be one of the best games of week 2. Both teams were victorious in week 1 and NFL’s week 2 viewers are in for a treat as Stafford to Megatron will face off versus the Niners strong defense lead by intense coach Harbaugh. The 49ers vs Lions spread has the 49ers favored to win, with a -7 spread. With only 1 game on Sunday night, this exciting week 2 matchup is a must bet so check out the NFL betting lines before it’s too late!

Denver Broncos vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Broncos vs Falcons game kicks off at 8:30pm EST in the Georgia Dome for Monday Night football. The last matchup of week 2 pits the revived Peyton Manning in a shoot out vs Matt Ryan and the Falcons. The sportsbooks will have their hands full with any Monday night game and most of them have this week 2 Broncos Falcons spread with Atlanta at -3. The money line is only in the mid 100’s, but as usual this will be your last chance to take home a payday in NFL week 2.
