It's NFL overreaction week!
I'm sure you've heard this already (or are sick of hearing it altogether), but recreational bettors have a tendency to overvalue what happened in Week 1 when examining NFL odds and spreads for Week 2.
Remember, while we have the luxury of examining data from real regular season action, it is just a one-week sample that can lead to bettors putting too much emphasis on those results.
On the other hand, long-term winners avoid making mistakes like overvaluing small samples of data when handicapping NFL odds.
With this in mind, let's dig into the two smartest NFL picks for Week 2, including spread bets Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals.
