Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones 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 NFL Week 2 for pro football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Pittsburgh Steelers (+180 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Tennessee Titans, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Don't discount just how good the Steelers really are. This is a team that has virtually all of its pieces in place, save for QB Ben Roethlisberger. This was a rock solid Atlanta Falcons team that Pittsburgh took care of last week in overtime, and watching Tennessee knock off the Oakland Raiders just makes us roll our eyes and say "Whatever." With SS Troy Polamalu back in the fold, the Steelers have one of the best defenses in the NFL, and that's something that the Titans might not be able to deal with. How will Tennessee deal with its offense if RB Chris Johnson can't get going after having 12 straight 100+ yard games on the ground? We're not so sure that the right team is even favored in this game, and getting a price tag like this on a team this solid seems like theft. Our NFL picks are clearly on Pittsburgh in this game.

Underdog Pick #2: Miami Dolphins (+200 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Minnesota Vikings, Sunday 1:00 ET: The Vikings might be the most overrated team in the NFL right now. They looked absolutely hapless on offense all game long, particularly on offense against the New Orleans Saints last Thursday night. Minnesota has a real problem with its 'O' right now, as there just isn't a standout wide receiver that is capable of picking up the pieces that are missing from the injury to WR Sidney Rice. QB Brett Favre looks ancient standing in the pocket, and the Dolphins have the ability to send blitz package after blitz package after him to try to keep him grounded. If RB Adrian Peterson doesn't have a stellar game, the Vikes can be had in this one. With another businesslike performance from the rushing duo of RB Ronnie Brown and RB Ricky Williams, Miami can march into Minneapolis and come out with a key 'W' that can send a real message to the rest of the AFC.

Underdog Pick #3: Washington Redskins (+115 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Houston Texans, Sunday, 4:15 ET: The Redskins are coming off of one of their biggest wins in recent years, as they trumped the Dallas Cowboys 13-7 in a dominant defensive performance. The Texans are also coming off of their biggest win, perhaps ever! An amazing rushing game gave the Indianapolis Colts fits, as Houston moved into first place early on in the AFC South with a 34-24 victory. This could be a brutal matchup for the Texans, as RB Arian Foster isn't going to be able to bowl through the front seven for the Redskins in all likelihood. If QB Matt Schaub ends up on his back too much thanks to LB Brian Orakpo or any of the other pass rushers for the Redskins, Houston could have a very hard time scoring. Add to the fact that this is a prototypical letdown game for the Texans, and the recipe is ripe for an upset. Go with the Skins in Landover in NFL betting action.
