Cincinnati 17 @ Chicago 20 | 09/19 | 5:00 PM UTC

Chicago -1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Bears faltered in Week 1 but got in their own way in several instances. At home against a young Cincinnati team in Week 2, look for Chicago to settle in and get back to the basics. The Bears will set the tone early and do enough to get the win. Grab Chicago.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 CIN ATS PICKS
+85 2-1 IN LAST 3 CHI ATS PICKS

Buffalo 35 @ Miami | 09/19 | 5:00 PM UTC

Miami +3.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: One of the more embarrassing losses for the Dolphins last year came in their season finale against the Bills. Buffalo did not let up when leading 35-13, going on to score three more touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Look for Miami to use that as motivation as it looks to send the Bills to an 0-2 start. Play the Dolphins.

+190 3-1 IN LAST 4 NFL ATS PICKS
+55 5-4-1 IN LAST 10 BUF ATS PICKS

Arizona St. 17 @ BYU 27 | 09/19 | 2:15 AM UTC

Arizona St. -3.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: BYU entered the Top 25 thanks to a victory against Utah. That win helps Arizona State bettors, giving them less points to have to cover. After the Sun Devils' sluggish first half against UNLV, they turned the corner with 23 second half points. I expect the Sun Devils to notch another win as they continue to climb the polls.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 BYU ATS PICKS

Okla. St. 21 @ Boise St. 20 | 09/19 | 1:00 AM UTC

Boise St. -3.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: A Mountain West-Big 12 clash will take place Saturday night between Boise State and Oklahoma State. Thus far, the Cowboys are 2-0 with margin of victories by seven points or less. Look for Boise State’s home-field edge and tempo to give Oklahoma State problems, led by quarterback Hank Bachmeier. Play Boise State.

Charlotte 9 @ Georgia St. 20 | 09/18 | 11:00 PM UTC

Charlotte +4.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Georgia State began the season against two difficult opponents in Army and North Carolina. The Panthers suffered blowout losses, which puts immense pressure on today’s game against Charlotte. I expect the Panthers to avoid an 0-3 start but for the 49ers to play a tight game and hold within the number. Play Charlotte.
