The top sports picks for Week 2 NFL picks 2011 are out, now here are some free picks and free NFL premium picks.
Free picks NFL start out with the top football handicapper off all-time GodsTips, anchor of OffshoreInsiders.com the premier football handicapping site in the world:
ARIZONA +3.5 Washington
Arizona vastly upgraded the QB position. We’ve seen what this squad did then they had a good QB in Kurt Warner. Kevin Kolb is a definite starting signal caller. Washington defeated a beat-up Giants team. Their win was not as impressive as many believe.
Do you really think Rex Grossman will have back-to-back big games? We don’t either. Washington TE Fred Davis has had plenty of inconsistencies during his short career. Coming off a great game, history says he disappears here.
The Cardinals feature a very formidable three-man front. Darnell Dockett is the big name in that group, but Calais Campbell is a very difficult guy to block, and Dan Williams is a promising youngster who looks to be the prototypical 3-4 nose tackle.
Again, GodsTips goes with Arizona.
Now to The Canadian Crew Week 1 showed us that the defenses, not the offenses, were slowed by the lockout. Will they bounce back during this week’s games? Let’s keep the fun going after we ran the table with four perfect spread picks last week.
Baltimore Ravens @ Tennessee Titans
Sunday, September 18, 1:00 p.m. ET
NFL betting line: Ravens -5.5
Nothing is for certain in the NFL but this feels like the Candy From a Baby Pick of the Week. The Ravens humiliated the Pittsburgh Steelers of all teams last week. In a 35-7 shellacking, they forced seven turnovers – three Ben Roethlisberger interceptions and four lost fumbles.
If Baltimore could decimate a strong Pittsburgh offense that badly, it should in theory obliterate Tennessee. Matt Hasselbeck’s aging legs won’t carry him away from Baltimore’s pass rush fast enough to get many throws away. If Jacksonville’s weak line could still sack him twice, the Ravens will feast.
Baltimore should also move the ball on Tennessee nicely – especially through the air. Joe Flacco picked Pittsburgh apart and should have an easier time against a so-so Titans secondary.
OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a sports betting pick winner for Sunday is on the Pittsburgh Steelers (-14) to Seattle.
Reasoning: I am laying a ton of lumber here with Pittsburgh and I’m not sure if I have ever done such a thing. Two touchdowns to a bunch of professionals is borderline absurd but let’s stop with the talk that Mike Tomlin’s Steelers have all of a sudden lost it and have gotten old and blah, blah, blah. Pittsburgh was in the Super Bowl a season ago and may get there once again this season. These guys are going to be as angry as can be after the embarrassment in Baltimore and we are going to see a team come out with conviction today against a well undermanned Seattle squad.
Pete Carroll may be in for an extremely long season. I don’t even mind Tarvaris Jackson, Sidney Rice and some of the parts on this Seahawk squad but are they really going to travel across the country, play an early game and compete with what is still a great team and a team that is beyond upset after the blowout loss? I just do not see it.
The Seahawks may be in this thing early and people will say what is going on with the Steelers? But then Big Ben and Mendenhall and Ward and Harrison and Polamalu and all of the rest of the high quality Steelers will get things going and take care of business.
If there is ever a 34-10 type of a final this is it and that is exactly what I believe we are going to see.
