NFL Betting: AFC East Making Lots of Noise Heading in To Week Two

AFC East NFL Betting PreviewFor all of the talk about how the AFC championship will go through the East this sports betting season, week one did little to dispel that notion with three of the four teams in the division opening with a win, while the only loss came in an all-AFC East matchup between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins. Despite the loss, the Dolphins showed flashes of a talented team capable of making a strong push, and they will look to bounce back this week at home in one of three key matchups listed below.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ New York Jets
Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Jets were handed one of the biggest gifts of NFL week one when Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo tossed an interception to Darrelle Revis with time running down in the fourth quarter of their game, which led to the winning field goal in an eventual 27-24 win.

New York may not get as lucky week two against a Jaguars’ offense that will be much more conservative with the ball, and the Jets’ offense will need to be careful not to lose the turnover battle by making mistakes at crucial times. Jacksonville didn’t overwhelm anyone with their 16-14 win over the Tennessee Titans, but they did do enough to go fishing and think that they can keep this one close on the road.

NFL Betting Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars + 9.5

San Diego Chargers @ New England Patriots
Sunday, 4:15 PM ET

The Patriots wasted little time flexing their muscle in week one, with quarterback Tom Brady nearly eclipsing the NFL betting lines record for most passing yards in a single game with 517 and four touchdowns. It was no surprise that the No. 1 recipient of those passes was Wes Welker, who finished with 160 yards and two touchdowns, but that didn’t take away from Brady’s ability to move the ball around and find Deion Branch and tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski. The New England defense bent but didn’t break enough to allow Miami to close the gap late, but they will need to do a better job of getting pressure on a much more lethal threat in Phillip Rivers of the Chargers. Just when it seemed as though San Diego would lose another opener and get off to another slow start, Rivers came alive to help his team past the Minnesota Vikings for a 21-14 win. The Patriots should be able to win this one at home, but it will be close.

NFL Betting Pick: San Diego Chargers +7

Houston Texans @ Miami Dolphins
Sunday, 4:15 PM ET

The Dolphins actually showed some pretty impressive NFL picks flashes against New England in week one, but the problem was that the Patriots were simply too good of an offense to keep up. Unfortunately for fans in Miami, they may run in to that same problem once again this week as the Texans bring one of the most lethal offenses in the league to town. Houston can move the ball on the ground or through the air, and with running back Arian Foster set to return they should be able to log a second consecutive win.

NFL Betting Pick:  Houston Texans - 3
