Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season didn’t lack in excitement or storylines.
It was an especially wild day in the early-afternoon games with a pair of contests going to overtime — including a tie — aided by some horrendous special teams plays, head-scratching coaching and the occasionally questionable officiating. It was all a giant reminder of just how difficult it can be to turn a profit betting on the NFL.
However, plenty of football bettors eagerly look forward to Week 2 where they think they can cash in on certain betting lines that might be affected by overreactions to the opening slate.
So, what stands out on the board entering the second week of the 2022 campaign? Let’s get into the Week 2 lines:
THURSDAY, SEPT. 15
