Now that everyone who picked Detroit in their Survivor Pools for Week 1 have come in from off the ledge, let’s keep the “Pain Party” rolling. We all love this sport for a reason (mostly gambling) so let’s examine the biggest underdogs at offshore NFL sportsbooks for Week 2 to identify where money can be made this Sunday.
Let’s great right to the largest spread on the board, which is of course Patriots vs. Dolphins in Miami. New England roll into town with more than a 2 touchdown spread but numbers are currently inconsistent. SportsBetting.ag has Pats -18½, MyBookie has Pat -19, and the stable geniuses over at Bovada have -19½ posted, with confusion like this being pretty rare. Needless to say, if backing a Dolphins cover, hit up Bovada (but those in New Jersey are forced to lay action at MyBookie because they’re the only option).
The next meaty morsel is the Ravens at home in Baltimore taking on the Cardinals, with Baltimore getting 13. All aforementioned destinations agree with this (for now) so don’t bother line shopping. Although, anyone brave enough to stake Arizona moneyline gets a little extra value at SB.ag with +525.
The last eyebrow-raiser is found for the wonky Jaguars vs. Texans game in Houston, with the hosts presently enjoying -8½. Sure, Houston might be a better team but that number feels a little high. Of course, the mavericks over at MyBookie led by David Strauss currently have Jags +9 so best value for straight-up road dog action is there.
Good luck this weekend and if you’re smart, stay away from that Bills vs. Giants game.
