2023 NFL Week 2 odds: Kansas City Chiefs to cover, other Week 2 best bets

The first Sunday of the NFL season is in the books!

While the weekend left us bettors with more questions than answers, we can be well assured that Patrick Mahomes is going to come out strong, when he squares off against Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2. 

We also saw the beginning of the future in Green Bay, and boy, does it look Love-ly. 

So without further ado, let’s jump into my favorite bets for the Week 2 slate.

Chiefs at Jaguars (1 p.m., CBS)

If Mahomes is a favorite of under three points, or an underdog, it’s an automatic wager for me, and this line opened at -2.5 in the look ahead and hasn’t moved despite the outcomes from this weekend. 

The Chiefs lost to the Detroit Lions 21-20, while Jacksonville beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-21. The Chiefs lost that game because 10% of Mahomes passes were dropped by a receiving corps that was without star tight end Travis Kelce. He may or may not play this weekend, but his status doesn’t change my wager. 

The Chiefs’ offense is going to play better. The offensive line didn’t run block as it is capable of, and I expect an all-around better performance from that unit. The Jaguars’ defense is average, and the Chiefs handled them with ease twice last season.

The Chiefs’ defense played well against the Lions. It only allowed 14 points without DT Chris Jones in the lineup. Its young defensive backfield is solid, and I think it ends the season in the top third of the NFL. It’s always going to be hard to stop Lawrence, but the Chiefs have the scheme and players to do it enough to cover this game. 

And lastly: taking an angry Super Bowl championship team looking to get its first victory after playing poorly in Week 1 is a good wager.  

PICK: Kansas City (-2.5) to win by more than 2.5 points
