Lock City: NFL Week 2 Picks

 

Washington Redskins (1-0) at St. Louis Rams (0-1)

For St. Louis to have a chance in not only this game, but throughout the season, someone will have to step up on offense for Sam Bradford.  With little names like like Danny Amendola or Brandon Gibson, or a TE like Lance Kendricks as options for stepping up, I just dont see that happening.

Miggles Pick – Skins -3.5

 

NY Jets (1-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1)

The Steelers are laying almost a touchdown here, but they should have plenty on both sides of the ball to cover this number as I believe what we saw from the Jets was more of a blip on the radar as opposed to what we will see from them the bulk of this season.  Steelers are 8-0 ATS following a loss and I dont see that changing here as Im not sold the Jets dont stink.

Miggles Pick – Steelers – 4.5

San Francisco 49ers (1-0) vs. Detroit Lions (1-0)

These two coaches hate each other, which in turn makes this a rivalry game, which in turn makes it a defensive game.  The total up over 46 is way too high for this one.  Love the under here.

Miggles Pick – Under 46

 

New Orleans Saints (0-1) at Carolina Panthers (0-1)

This one is one of my tougher calls this week.  Questions remain for both teams, like the Saints defense and Panthers run game.  I dont think either of these teams are what they showed last week.  I think they both are much better than that and will show it this week.  Both bounce back for a good game, but I see Carolina coming up a little short at home.  They are just not on the same level as the Saints as of yet.  Should be a lot of offense, but I like the Saints getting the monkey off their back and sneaking out a win on the road.

Miggles Pick – Saints – 2.5
