2018 NFL Week 2 — (Detroit at San Francisco; New England at Jacksonville)

These are the condensed versions of picks for the NFL Week 2 games between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, and New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars for Winners and Whiners. Confidence rating is in parentheses. Note: The 5/5 does not represent the best overall pick of the day’s games, simply the best pick of each individual game.

Week 1 Review: I’ll be succinct. Matthew Stafford played like a rookie. Sam Darnold did not. Accordingly, the belief the Lions would win on every single pick and hold the Jets under 20 points was an unmitigated disaster. Moving on then:

Game 1: Detroit at San Francisco:

Side Prediction/Full Game: 49ers -6 -115 (4/5)
Total Prediction/Full Game: Over 47.5 -110 (3/5)
Prop Prediction/Full Game: Kittle to score TD+49ers win +162 (3/5)
Side Prediction/Half Time: 49ers -3.5 -105 (5/5)
Total Prediction/Half Time: Over 24.5 (3/5)
Prop Prediction/Half Time: YES to score in first 6:00 (3/5)

Game 2: New England at Jacksonville:

Side Prediction/Full Game: Patriots -2 -110 (4/5)
Total Prediction/Full Game: Under 45 -110 (3/5)
Prop Prediction/Full Game: Jaguars Under 21.5 points (4/5)
Side Prediction/Half Time: Patriots -115 (3/5)
Total Prediction/Half Time: Over 22 points -110 (3/5)
Prop Prediction/Half Time: Patriots over 11.5 points -110 (5/5)
