NFL overreaction season is officially here.
Mainstream sports media analysts, NFL fans and recreational football bettors consistently overreact to Week 1 results, allowing savvy bettors to cut through the narratives and find value in Week 2.
Casual bettors overwhelmingly make decisions based on emotion or recent results, and right now we have just one week of action to consider.
On the other hand, professionals rely solely on data and won’t allow the results of a single event to overly influence their opinions, and this is exactly what we’re seeing in NFL Week 2.
Speaking of data, our NFL PRO Projections are based on just that and find value by comparing our projected odds to current odds.
The larger the difference between the two, the better the value for that bet.
And when it comes to Sunday’s NFL Week 2 games, 49ers vs. Eagles (1 p.m. ET), Falcons vs. Buccaneers (4:05 p.m. ET) and Cowboys vs. Chargers (4:25 p.m. ET) lead the way regarding the slate’s top edges.
Let’s dig in.

This edge was massive earlier this week, but sharp money has shown up to tighten this betting opportunity a bit.
Still, even after the line movement we’ve seen thus far, there’s still plenty of meat left on the 49ers vs. Eagles betting value bone.
