The Pittsburgh Steelers were not the only ones who disappointed in Week 1 after the results of our opening weekend picks against the spread and the totals were tallied. While the first week of the season is always a difficult one to bet on, our selections did little to help steer you in the right direction.
Editor Jeff Hartman was an acceptable 9-6 against the spread, but a disappointing 6-9 versus the totals. Meanwhile, although I barely broke even at 8-7 against the spread, a 9-6 record versus the totals was almost respectable. Just like the Steelers, we both aim to do better in Week 2.
With just three spreads over a touchdown on Sunday, the bookmakers are clearly expecting a number of close matchups this weekend and there is value to be found with several questionable home teams hosting capable visiting teams. Some relatively high totals in Week 2 offer a number of intriguing options for those who like to take the under too.
