Underdog With Most Moneyline Handle: Packers

EXPERT PICKS

Ryan Leaf is rolling with two underdogs that both suffered key injuries in Week 1, while Ariel Epstein has two overs on player props.

THE SIGNAL-CALLER

Ravens +3 (-105) @ Bengals [1 p.m. ET]
โ€œIt seems like Baltimore is beat up by the injury bug early every single year, but fortunately itโ€™s not Lamar Jackson. I think Joe Burrowโ€™s calf injury is something thatโ€™s there that isnโ€™t really being discussed.โ€
Jets +8.5 (-110) @ Cowboys [4:25 p.m. ET]
โ€œThatโ€™s a lot of points for one of the NFLโ€™s best defenses. This is a big if, but if Zach Wilson can take care of the football, I think the Jets cover this easily.โ€

THE PROP QUEEN

Chargers TE Gerald Everett Over 30.5 Receiving Yards (-115) [1 p.m. ET]
โ€œThe Titans allowed the most receiving yards per game to tight ends last season. Justin Herbert should be throwing often with Austin Ekeler out and against a weak Titans secondary.โ€
Seahawks QB Geno Smith Over 15.5 Rushing Yards (+100) [1 p.m. ET]
โ€œThe Lions allowed the most quarterback rushing yards last season. That includes Smith getting 49 of them in last yearโ€™s matchup between these teams.โ€

PROPS TO THESE PROPS

PROP-A-PALOOZA ๐Ÿฅณ

Only Christian McCaffrey (-225) and Derrick Henry (-160) are heavier favorites to score a touchdown today than Travis Kelce (-150).

Player props continue to rise in popularity and that’s definitely the case to start this season. Let’s check out which Week 2 player props have been the most popular bets.

๐Ÿˆ Top Passing Prop by Tickets: Trevor Lawrence Over Passing Yards (now 260.5)
Bettors are expecting a lot of damage through the air in Chiefs-Jaguars, with Lawrence over passing yards (opened 245.5, now 260.5) leading in tickets for this category and Patrick Mahomes over passing yards (300.5) right behind in second.

๐Ÿˆ Top Passing Prop by Handle: Jimmy Garoppolo Over Pass Attempts (now 33.5)
Weird but true: Garoppolo had nine rushing attempts in Week 1, more than running backs Isiah Pacheco (8), Jahmyr Gibbs (7) and Najee Harris (6) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

๐Ÿˆ Top Rushing Prop by Tickets: Justin Fields Over Rushing Yards (now 60.5)
Fields over rushing yards was also the top rushing prop by tickets in Week 1.

๐Ÿˆ Top Rushing Prop by Handle: Josh Allen Over Rushing Yards (now 40.5)
Allen’s rushing prop this week has increased from 35.5 to 40.5, and he went over 40.5 in 11 games last regular season.

๐Ÿˆ Top Receiving Prop by Tickets: Calvin Ridley Over Receiving Yards (now 75.5)
The hype surrounding Ridley went into overdrive after he crossed the 100-yard mark in his Jaguars ๐Ÿ† debut, and now his receiving yards prop in Week 2 has jumped from 65.5 to 75.5.

๐Ÿˆ Top Receiving Prop by Handle: DJ Moore to Get 50+ Receiving Yards (+115)
One Illinois bettor put $10,000 each on Moore 50+ receiving yards at +110, Moore 75+ receiving yards at +350 and Moore 100+ receiving yards at +1050.

๐Ÿˆ Top Scoring Prop by Tickets: Travis Kelce Anytime Touchdown (-150)
Kelce scored three touchdowns in two matchups against the Jaguars last season, including two in the Divisional Round.

๐Ÿˆ Top Scoring Prop by Handle: Kelce Anytime Touchdown
Today is the first time that Mahomes is playing an NFL game on his birthday and what better gift ๐ŸŽ than to get his tight end back after Kelce missed Week 1?

COLOSSAL CLASH

MARQUEE MATCHUP ๐Ÿ“บ

PointsBet: A Fanatics Experience data and insights

OPENING KICKOFF: 1 p.m. ET

WHY WEโ€™RE WATCHING: This is the highest total ๐ŸŽ† on the board, with the next-closest one (Seahawks-Lions at 47) 4 points away. Itโ€™s also the only game with two QBs in the top 5 in MVP odds squaring off โ€“ Patrick Mahomes is a +650 co-favorite and Trevor Lawrence is tied for fifth at +1000.

MAKING MOVES: The Chiefs opened as 2.5-point road favorites and were at -3.5 for most of the week. This line, however, dipped back down to Chiefs -3 very early this morning. The total has gone back and forth between 51 and 51.5 all week, and itโ€™s currently settled at 51.

COVERING MACHINE: Usually bettors have to lay a good amount of points when backing Mahomes. But when heโ€™s either an underdog or favored by 3 points or fewer, heโ€™s gone 19-6-1 against the spread (including playoffs) ๐Ÿคฏ.

TROUBLE IN TRENCHES: The Jaguars are already down Cam Robinson, as the left tackle is suspended for four games. Guard Brandon Scherff and center Luke Fortner are both listed as questionable with ankle injuries. The Chiefs led the NFL in QB pressures and were second in sacks last season, and they get Chris Jones back.
