The opening week of the 2015 NFL season saw a few of the league’s top teams start out 0-1, but most of them are expected to bounce back right away. Seven teams that lost in Week 1 are favored in Week 2.
The New Orleans Saints lost their season opener, but they are the biggest favorites of Week 2. Drew Brees and Co. are giving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 points. The Bucs suffered the worst loss of Week 1, and No.1 draft pick Jameis Winston threw two costly interceptions.
Marcus Mariota had one of the best rookie debuts of any quarterback in NFL history, tossing four touchdown passes in the Tennessee Titans’ win against Tampa Bay. But despite his performance and Tennessee's 28-point victory, the Titans are two-point underdogs in Cleveland. The Browns lost to the Jets by 21 points in Week 1.
The Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers are the second and third biggest favorites on the Week 2 schedule after they lost in Week 1. They are both facing teams that are 1-0.
The defending Super Bowl champs find themselves as the smallest favorites of Week 2. They are giving the Bills just one point in their visit to Buffalo. The Bills beat the Colts by 13 points in their opener.
Baltimore is certain to be favored when they visit the Oakland Raiders, but a betting line might not be available until later in the week. It’s still unknown who will start at quarterback for Oakland, since Derek Carr left last week’s game with a hand injury.
The contest between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles has the week’s highest over/under. They combined to score 51 points in Week 1.
Below are the complete betting lines for all the Week 2 games, including the point spreads and totals. These are the consensus odds from multiple sportsbooks in Las Vegas, via vegasinsider.com.
