It figures to be another exciting Sunday as we continue to plough through the NFL season. Come Tuesday morning we’ll be heading into week 3 already, crazy!
Here’s our betting picks for this Sundays games with a little bit of research thrown in too. Keep it fun and always bet responsibly!
Michael Gallup over 64.5 receiving yards: (5/6)
Sunday afternoons match up between the Falcons and Cowboys is set to be a shoot out between two teams desperate to avoid going 0-2. Between them these two offences collectively went over 880 yards last week. Both have issues on the defensive side of the ball so expect plenty of yards in this match up.
Officially Amari Cooper is the Cowboys number 1 receiver, but there’s an argument that Gallup could claim that title too. The 2018 3rd round pick has more yards than his counterpart Cooper in 4 of the last 6 games they’ve played together. Gallup gained over 64.5 yards in 8 of his 14 games last term. It shouldn’t be a huge ask for him to pass this marker again on Sunday.
Detroit Lions Vs. Green Bay Packers Over 49.5 points: (10/11)
Two more teams who were flying last weekend; the Lions 426 yards, 23 points, the Packers 522 yards, 43 points. The Lions had their hearts broken to the Bears 27-23 and would love a shot at redemption against another NFC North rival. The Packers put on a show against the Vikings, they did however give up 34 points.
Both offences will be hoping to put up points against defences that showed they can be beaten. A Rodgers, Stafford shootout is waiting for us this weekend, 50 points shouldn’t be too much to ask.
Buffalo Bills -5.5 vs. Miami Dolphins (10/11)
Miami scored the fewest points in the league last week, 11 (yes, eleven) points. Yes it was against a Bill Belichick defence, but a weakened one at that. This continues their poor form with the ball from 2019 when they averaged only 17 points a game. This game figures to be more of the same: Buffalo quietly had one of the best defences in the league last year; allowing just 16.2 points/game (2nd best) and 298.3 yards/game (3rd).
The Bills dropped 37 and 31 points on the ‘Fins last year and have started the season well, last week trouncing the Jets 27-17. 6 point difference is all we need for this one, I can’t see Miami keeping it that close.
