NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for Week 2

Start 'em, Sit 'em Week 14: Nick Chubb

Nick Chubb and the Browns are a heavy home favorite entering their Week 2 game with the Texans

Week 1 of the NFL season featured a little bit of everything, including some great gambling moments. Nine teams pulled off upsets as far as Vegas was concerned, five of those coming on the road. And the two home favorites that didn't cover? None other than defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay and Kansas City, the team the Buccaneers beat. Even the Detroit Lions beat the spread as 8.5-point underdogs at home to San Francisco, wiping out a 24-point deficit in the fourth quarter to lose by only eight.

So if Week 1 was any indication of things to come, how should we approach Week 2? Quite a few road favorites have been installed, and there are a couple of sizeable spreads on the board as well.
