Office Pool Picks: Week 2

September 14, 2017

The NFL season is back and so too are my Office Pool Picks. Week 1 is always a tough challenge for handicappers, and it was rough for me last week in Survivor and Against the Spread. Let’s take another crack at it for Week 2.

Here are my picks for this week all your favorite office pool formats – Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread:

16 Raiders vs. NYJ
15 Bucs vs. CHI
14 Panthers vs. BUF
13 Seahawks vs. SF
12 Ravens vs. CLE
11 Cardinals at IND
10 Vikings at PIT
09 Titans at JAC
08 Chiefs vs. PHI
07 Patriots at NO
06 Packers at ATL
05 Bengals vs. HOU
04 Chargers vs. MIA
03 Lions at NYG
02 Rams vs. WAS
01  Broncos vs. DAL

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Raiders
After missing here with the Patriots I’m going back to the for sure thing – picking against the Jets. Let’s roll with Oakland at home in a big way.

Out on a limb – Panthers
Cam Newton and the boys got the job done last week in San Fran, but didn’t overwhelm. Now they return home to face Buffalo. I feel good about this, but Carolina never seems like a lock.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (2-3 on season)

Pick of the Week
Bucs -7

Other Plays to Consider
Saints +7
Vikings +7
Raiders -14
