    Week 2 Favorites - Best Bets

    2018 NFL Preseason Week 2: Home Favorites worth Betting

    Even when it’s only a preseason game, teams still feel the need to put on a show for their home fans. In fact, it can be argued that the need is even greater in the preseason, as it’s an opportunity to show the fans just how good things are going to be for the coming season.

    With that in mind, we have decided to take a look at the match-ups in Week 2 of the NFL preseason to see if we can find a few home favorites to play, or perhaps even put together in a parlay ticket.

    Keep in mind that you can start betting on all Preseason Week 2 odds at YouWager.eu.

    Now, let’s get right to the picks.

    Atlanta Falcons (-1) over Kansas City Chiefs

    It may just be preseason, but make no mistake about it, the Falcons were embarrassed by their 17-0 defeat at the hands of the New York Jets last week. It’s not very often that you see the Falcons get totally shut down, and the chances of it happening in back to back games seems pretty slim. The Chiefs lost to the Texans in the opening week of preseason and only managed to put 10 points on the board in the process. There are going to be some growing pains there with the changes made in the offseason, and I believe those will continue with a loss to the Falcons this week.

    Cleveland Browns (-3.5) over Buffalo Bills

    There is some serious optimism brewing in Cleveland right now, and for good reason. It looks as though the Browns, who have had QB issues for as long as anyone can remember, may actually now have two solid guys at that position. Tyrod Taylor, who came over from the Bills, looked great in the opening week, but he was overshadowed by rookie sensation Baker Mayfield, who tossed 2 TD passes in his first outing as a pro. It’s never a good idea to get too hyped up in preseason (remember that the Browns won all 4 preseason games last year), but I think the Browns keep the good times rolling with another win.

    New Orleans Saints (-3) over Arizona Cardinals

    The Saints are coming off a very nice win in the opening week of preseason, taking down the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 on the road. This week, they will host a Cardinals team that delivered a surprising win in Week 1, but who look seriously overmatched here. The spreads tend to not be too big in preseason, and the Saints are in here as a 3 point favorite, a number that I believe to be great value. I like the Saints to win and cover in this one, and I believe they need to be a part of any parlay ticket you might play this week.

    Minnesota Vikings (-4) over Jacksonville Jaguars

    You don’t like to pick a favorite after just one week of preseason football, but my pick of Minnesota to win the Super Bowl this season suddenly looks very good indeed. The Vikings absolutely pounded the Broncos 42-28 on the road, with Kirk Cousins looking very good in a brief appearance. The Vikings head home this week to face a Jacksonville team looking to get their first W after losing at home to the Saints last week. Not so sure the Vikings will win in blowout fashion this week, but I still like them to win.

    Thursday's Top Parlay

    NFL Preseason Betting – Steelers vs. Packers

    The Green Bay Packers are favored at home on Thursday night, as they host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 NFL preseason action.

    The Steelers are not expected to play starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in this contest, but the Packers are expected to give Aaron Rodgers some playing time.

    This might be the only playing time in the preseason for Rodgers. Green Bay has been a good home team in the preseason in recent seasons and they are listed as 5.5-point home favorites in this contest.

    Let’s look at this Thursday night contest and NFL picks.

    Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers
    Date and Time: Thursday, August 16, 2018, 8 p.m. ET
    Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
    NFL Odds: Packers -5.5, O/U 42.5
    Steelers vs. Packers TV Coverage: Local

    The Steelers and Packers both won their preseason openers, although neither team played many starters. It will be a little bit different this week, especially for the Packers, with Rodgers expected to play. The Steelers are not expected to play Roethlisberger or Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell isn’t expected to play until the regular season.

    The Packers will have Rodgers, but he likely won’t play for much more than a quarter. The Steelers won’t be playing Big Ben at all and backup Landry Jones may not see much playing time either. Offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said that he wants to get Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs a lot of work on Thursday.

    “Landry knows he’s not going to be afforded that many reps because the young guys will get the chance to get those reps,” Fichtner said recently to the media, “We’ll keep that posture the rest of the preseason.” Jones will likely start this game on Thursday and he will probably play at least a quarter. He went three series last week against the Eagles and played well. Dobbs came in and completed 9 of 13 passes and led two touchdown drives. Rudolph played the entire second half and had his ups and downs.

    Following Rodgers for the Packers will be Brett Hundley and Deshone Kizer. It is possible that Tim Boyle gets mop up work.

    Players to Watch

    The Packers need to find a starting running back, so the focus in the preseason will be on the backfield. Aaron Jones is out for the first two games of the season due to suspension, so Green Bay has to figure out if Ty Montgomery or Jamaal Williams will be the starter. They also need to find some depth behind those two. Neither Joel Bouagnon nor Akeem Judd looked very good last week against Tennessee.

    Green Bay also is looking for some receiving depth, as they have major questions behind Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. One player who is making some noise is Jake Kumerow. He had three catches for 76 yards and a TD last week. He is still a longshot to make the roster, but he is making it interesting.

    Key Stats

    The Steelers and Packers have not played in the preseason at Lambeau Field since 1996 when the Packers won 24-17. The Packers are 14-10-1 in the preseason all-time against Pittsburgh. The Packers have scored 20 points or more in each of their last five preseason games. The Packers have won six straight preseason home games and eight of their last nine at Lambeau.

    Steelers vs. Packers Picks

    The Packers have the edge in this game for two reasons, they are at home and they have the better quarterback rotation. The Packers have two proven backups behind Rodgers in Hundley and Kizer, while the Steelers have Landry and then some question marks. The Packers have been a really good team at home in the preseason of late, having won their last six games.

    If the Steelers were playing Big Ben and had more of their starters going they would be worth a look, but without them it is hard to make a case for taking Pittsburgh. I will lay the points and take the Packers to get this win on Thursday night.

    Steelers vs. Packers Pick: Packers-Under
    Steelers vs. Packers Score Prediction: Packers 24, Steelers 13
