San Francisco should improve to 3-0 if they can beat the Giants on TNF. Dallas is on the road to face the Arizona Cardinals who blew a 21-point second-half lead to fall to 0-2.

Philadelphia will have to wait until MNF for their matchup vs. a Buccaneers team that is also 2-0. Finally, the Dolphins will have their first home game of the season in Week 3 vs. the Denver Broncos who are 0-2.

NFL Week 2 Consensus Picks

All three of our NFL experts picked these teams to cover the spread in Week 2:

Best NFL Week 2 Bets

Here are our best NFL Week 2 bets for the 2023 season:

Detroit Lions (-3) vs. Atlanta Falcons

Anthony: The Atlanta Falcons are one of the many 2-0 NFC teams, and they have a chance to keep things rolling with one of the easier schedules in the entire league. But one of their toughest games of the season is coming up on Sunday, as they will travel to Detroit to take on the Lions. 

Dan Campbell and company are an overtime touchdown away from being 2-0 themselves and are still the favorites to win the NFC North despite their 1-1 record. They’ll look to get back in the win column against the Falcons, who may have reason to overlook this particular contest. Atlanta is scheduled to play in London against the Jaguars in Week 4

Seattle Seahawks (-5.5) vs. Carolina Panthers

Zach: This season, the Carolina Panthers have a rookie at QB. Bryce Young was the #1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and has a lot of expectations heading into his first season. Through their first two games, the Panthers are averaging just (13.5) points. They scored 10 in the season opener vs. the Falcons and 17 on MNF vs. the Saints,

On the flip side, the Seattle Seahawks bounced back in Week 2 with a 37-31 OT victory vs. the Lions. They are averaging (25.0) points through two games of the 2023 season. Seattle’s defense had a pick-six in Week 2 vs. the Lions. Their secondary is one of the most underrated units in the NFL. The Seahawks to cover (-5.5) vs. the Panthers is a strong bet in Week 3.

Pittsburgh Steelers (+2.5) @ Las Vegas Raiders 

Owen: The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders on Sunday Night Football. Even though in a win against the Cleveland Browns, the Steelers’ offense did not show up. Kenny Pickett only completed 50% of his passes. That was against a very stout Cleveland defense, the Raiders defense, however, not so much. Expect the Steelers’ offense to be somewhat better and be more fluid. 

The Las Vegas offense going against really good defenses so far this season has not shown much. They faced a similar Bills defense last week and only put up 10 points. The Steelers defense is easily comparable. TJ Watt and Alex Highsmith will each have a day against a very unproven offensive line. Vegas may have a good home crowd presence, but it might not be enough for the Steelers to come into town and cover.
