Recapping Week 2 Bets And Looking Forward To Lions vs Packers

NFL Week 2 Wagering Recap-Lions At Packers Betting Guide

Fans of the NFL were treated to a wild week two set of games, capped off with a stunning Baltimore Ravens victory over the Chiefs. A series of last-second field goals (and misses) left bettors sweating it out on Sunday. To top it off, we will be treated to an NFC North matchup of the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.

Sunday Betting: What Went Right

This week I focused on continuing my exploration of the alternative DFS platforms, UnderDog Fantasy and PrizePicks. Between the two platforms, I had far greater success with UnderDog Fantasy’s Rival Pick’em contest.

For this contest, it was required that 5 picks be correct, turning my $10 entry fee into $200.

My PrizePick performance left a lot to be desired as I was correct on just 1/5 picks. Luckily, I only dipped my toe in the water using my $5 promo.

A few of my selections ended up being close, however, Devin Singletary blew past his line early and D.J Chark and the Jacksonville offense never got going. I am looking to rebound in a big way with the following PrizePick entry.

NFL Betting Props: Finding Value

The key to successful sports betting is finding value in the odds/lines. One of my favorite strategies is to compare the lines from Fanduel or Draftking vs the odds at Pinnacle Sportsbook. Pinnacle is widely considered to be the “sharpest” sportsbook as they accept larger wagers for more experienced and professional bettors. This analysis can reveal how the “sharp” bettors are feeling about a bet and capitalize on better odds at DraftKings or FanDuel.

Bettors at Pinnacle are pricing in Jared Goff going slightly over his line of 254.5. The Packers defense struggled to get off the field in week one and will be without edge rusher Za’Darius Smith. I’m targeting the over at 249.5 giving me some wiggle room.

The lines on Aaron Rodgers passing yards are priced fairly close, however, there is a slight amount of value with Rodgers to go over 280.5 at Fanduel.

For the Monday night rushing props, I will be locking in D’Andre Swift on the under 42.5 on FanDuel. Pinnacle is already leaning towards Swift going under 39.5, making him a good pick at 42.5. The Packers figure to attack the Lion’s weak secondary, leaving me without a heavy lean on Aaron Jones or A.J. Dillion.

My favorite receiving yards play for the night is Allen Lazard over 33.5 on Fanduel. Davante Adams will continue seeing double coverage, presenting opportunities for Lazard. For Detroit, I will jump on T.J Hockenson to go over his Fanduel line of 55.5.
