Odds, Lines, Picks, Spreads, Best Bets, NFL Predictions for Week 2, 2021: High Pattern on Falcons, Bears
The Buffalo Bills were a popular choice to win the Super Bowl ahead of the 2021 NFL season. However, the Bills are at serious risk of starting the season 0-2 after suffering a 23-16 loss at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. The Bills will now travel to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in a key AFC East showdown on the NFL Week 2 schedule. The Dolphins picked up a 17-16 road victory over the New England Patriots last week and will look to start the season with two straight division wins.

Best NFL Predictions of Week 2
One of the best NFL predictions of Week 2 recommended by the model: The Falcons (+12.5) stay in the gap against the Buccaneers. The defending champions looked sloppy in their opener, as Tampa had four freebies while allowing the Cowboys 29 points. Dallas should have had more points and maybe a win, but kicker Greg Zuerlein left seven points on the board by missing three attempts.
While Atlanta’s appalling performances in Week 1 are a major reason for the 12.5-point gap, quarterback Matt Ryan generally delivers in these types of games. He’s 6-2 ATS in his career as a double-digit underdog and has gone 3-0 since 2019. This is the biggest gap Ryan and the Falcons have. obtained since they were 14-point underdogs in 2019 against the Saints, an Atlanta game has won straight away.
The model has Ryan throwing 250 yards. He predicts that Tampa will win straight out almost 80% of the time, but Atlanta covers the 12.5-point gap in more than 50% of the simulations.
Another of the model’s Week 2 NFL top picks: The Bears (-3) cover the home gap against the Bengals. Cincinnati comes off an emotional overtime win over the Vikings in Week 1. Broad rookie Ja’Marr Chase had a strong performance in his NFL debut, recording five receptions for 101 yards and one touchdown.
Chicago, meanwhile, failed to get things done in their 34-14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday. Despite scoring just 14 points, the Bears should be cheered up after running back David Montgomery ran for 108 yards and a touchdown against a stingy Rams defense. If Chicago is able to establish ground play early on Sunday, the Bengals will be forced to put more defenders in the box, which will open the Bears’ aerial attack.
The Bengals allowed over 350 passing yards and two touchdowns in the air against the Vikings last week, which bodes well for Andy Dalton and the Bears. The model predicts Dalton’s throws for 214 yards and 1.6 touchdowns, while Montgomery averages nearly five yards per carry, allowing Chicago to cover the gap in well over 50% of the sims.
How to make NFL Week 2 picks
