Written by on August 12, 2019

It’s Week 2 of the NFL preseason. With that being said, we should see more of the starters this week. Although we may not see some of the league’s biggest stars, we still should see more competitive football. Although the lines have not been released at the time of this writing, we’ll preview and predict the outcomes of the NFL Betting action in this week’s games.

2019 NFL Preseason Week 2 Odds, Overview & Picks

Thursday, August 15th

Philadelphia Eagles @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Nick Foles will be facing his old team, as the Eagles travel to Jacksonville. Foles did not play in Jacksonville’s Week 1 game, so he’ll be making his debut. He won’t see a lot of time, as the Jags will want to see if Gardner Minshew, who struggled last week, can handle the backup QB position. As for the Eagles, they’ll be trying to find a new backup for Carson Wentz, as potential backup Nate Sudfeld broke his arm in last week’s game. We should see a lot of Cody Kessler in this week’s matchup. Both teams struggled last week, so something’s gotta give this week. Look for the Eagles to win a low scoring affair.

New York Jets @ Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are looking to avoid going 0-3 in the preseason. Matt Ryan will see his first game action this weekend. Sam Darnold saw some snaps last week and figures to see more this week. We may even see some Le’Veon Bell in this one. Atlanta has struggled on defense thus far, so look for the Jets to take this one.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Redskins

The Chiefs dominated the Bengals last weekend. The Bengals were their own worst enemies, as penalties really hurt them. The Redskins also struggled, as they were beaten by the Browns. Dwayne Haskins made his NFL debut and looked like a rookie QB. We should see more of Case Keenum this week, as he should be the Week 1 starter. The Redskins will take the victory here.

Oakland Raiders @ Arizona Cardinals

Oakland wants to get on the field so they can forget about the Antonio Brown circus for a few hours. Nathan Peterman and Mike Glennon are competing for the backup QB job, so we probably won’t see much of Derek Carr. Peterman looked good against the Rams. As for Arizona, we could see more of Kyler Murray, as Kliff Kingsbury wants to see what he can do. Arizona needs help on defense, but their defensive issues won’t be enough to stop the Cardinals from defeating the Raiders. Green Bay Packers @ Baltimore Ravens It’s doubtful that we’ll see Aaron Rodgers. Look for Green Bay to give a majority of the snaps to DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle. The Ravens beat down the Jaguars last week. Between their defense, and their ability to run the football, they took it to the Jags. Defense wins early-season games. The Ravens will be victorious.

Friday, August 16th

Chicago Bears @ New York Giants

The Bears offense struggled against the Panthers last week. We probably won’t see much of Mitchell Trubisky, but will see a lot of Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray. The Bears offensive line struggled for much of this game. The one bright spot for the Bears was rookie running back David Montgomery, who looked like he could be the Bears starting RB. Daniel Jones looked good in his debut for the Giants. The Giants want to see what they have in Jones, so look for him to play a lot. The Giants threw the ball a ton last week. They’ll do it again this week. Giants win.

Miami Dolphins @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We’ll see more of the QB battle for the Dolphins, as Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen battle for the starting job. Jameis Winston looked good in a limited role for the Bucs. Ryan Griffin threw for over 300 yards in relief of Winston. Tampa Bay airs it out again this week, and they defeat the Bucs.

Buffalo Bills @ Carolina Panthers

Josh Allen will see limited action in this one. We will see a lot of Matt Barkley on Thursday. The Bills are looking for running back depth behind LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore. Rookie Devin Singletary looked good last week in a limited role. The Panthers defense was stellar last week against the Bears. Limiting the Bears high flying offense to just 13 points. The Carolina pass rush had five sacks against the Bears. Early in the season, defenses tend to have the advantage. Panthers win.

Saturday, August 17th

Cleveland Browns @ Indianapolis Colts

Baker Mayfield and the Browns looked good in Week 1. With no Andrew Luck for the Colts, we’ll see a lot of Jacoby Brissett and Chad Kelly. Look for the Colts to try to pound the ball against the Browns, as Frank Reich was not happy with his running game last week. Browns take the victory in Indy.

New England Patriots @ Tennessee Titans

We won’t see Tom Brady in this one. Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer will look to carry the Pats to victory. They both played well in the Patriots week 1 win over the Lions. Marcus Mariota struggled last week. Ryan Tannehill took the majority of the snaps and looked good. The Patriots hate to lose any time. They win this one.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers

It’s unknown how much of Patrick Mahomes and the KC starting offense we’ll see. They still need to work on the defensive side of the ball. The Steelers have a ton of depth at running back, so we should see them pound the ball. Go Steelers in this one.

Detroit Lions @ Houston Texans

The Lions gave up nine sacks to the Patriots last week. David Fales and Tom Savage struggled under center for the Lions. Joe Webb played the whole game for the Texans, as Deshaun Watson didn’t see any action, and AJ McCarron is out for the entire preseason. The Texans win this one at home.

Dallas Cowboys @ LA Rams

With no Zeke Elliott and all of the contract extension talks with Dak Prescott dominating the headlines, it’s been a long preseason for the Cowboys already. The Rams will look to keep their offense rolling. Rams win!

Sunday, August 18th

New Orleans Saints @ LA Chargers

Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill will lead the Saints again this week, as we probably won’t see much if any of Drew Brees. The Saints offense looked good in Week 1. The Chargers will be closely watching their running game, as they’re still planning on starting the season without Melvin Gordon. The Saints offense will be too much for the Chargers in this one.

Seattle Seahawks @ Minnesota Vikings

Paxton Lynch played well for Seattle, and it looks like he has taken the lead over Geno Smith for the backup QB position. We should see more of Lynch this week, as Smith is out due to injury. We could even see a Russell Wilson appearance. Kirk Cousins looked good in his brief appearance. With Minnesota installing a new offense, we should see a lot of the backup QB’s. Rookie running back Alexander Mattison ran the ball well for the Vikings. Take the Vikes in this one.

Monday, August 19th

San Francisco 49ers @ Denver Broncos

It will be Kyle Shanahan’s offense against Vic Fangio’s defense. This will be game 3 for the Broncos, so we could see more of Joe Flacco. Advantage – Broncos.
