Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be Twos ripe to pull off some major upsets! Check out the potentially ugly dogs that could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren’t careful for the Week 2 of NFL betting action!
Year To Date Record: 4-3 ATS
Upset Record: 2-2 +$50
Underdog Pick #1: St. Louis Rams (+230 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ New York Giants, Monday, 8:35 ET: We’ll start off on Monday Night Football with what we really, really think reeks of an upset. The Giants just have an absolutely hideous secondary right now that QB Rex Grossman cut through like a hot knife through a stick of butter. Though QB Sam Bradford is banged up and doesn’t have his top target, WR Danny Amendola for this one, he is still a lethal quarterback, and the passing game for OC Josh McDaniels will have a field day. The only question is whether RB Cadillac Williams can hold up for an entire game or not, something that he really didn’t do often in Tampa Bay. Missing RB Steven Jackson will hurt, but the truth of the matter is that this is an absolutely fantastic price against a New York team which, quite frankly, isn’t all that great.
Underdog Pick #2: Chicago Bears (+250 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ New Orleans Saints, Sunday 1:00 ET: We went with the Bears last week as well, and now we know why. This defense is just downright nasty, and you know that the unit is going to be hyped up even more with LB Brian Urlacher out there just days after losing his mother. The Saints really do need this one in a relatively bad way, though Head Coach Sean Peyton knows that the Falcons are quite possibility going to be off to an 0-2 start as well. Is QB Jay Cutler in better shape this year than we once thought? RB Matt Forte could be in for a field day, and if he ends up cutting it as a receiver and/or as a runner, the fans in the Bayou might be in for a rude upset to start off their season.
Underdog Pick #3: Oakland Raiders (+150 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Buffalo Bills, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Oakland’s not that great, and there are plenty of injuries to go around at wide receiver, but Buffalo isn’t nearly that good either. Sure, the Bills have become the team du jour right now after accounting for 41 points, all of the touchdowns of which came via the offense against the defending AFC West champs, but we aren’t all that sure that A) that game wasn’t an anomaly and B) the Chiefs are any better than the Raiders are. We also aren’t so certain that the win at Denver last week wasn’t just what the silver and black needed to get back on the horse this year to make another run at the .500 mark. Buffalo and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick just don’t cut it in our eyes.
