NFL Week 2 Odds, Picks & Predictions: Dolphins vs. Ravens
The Miami Dolphins visit the Baltimore Ravens in one of the most exciting matchups of Week 2. After a Week 1 beatdown of their division rival Patriots, the Dolphins are on the cusp of being perceived as an AFC contender were they to upset Baltimore in their home opener.
The questions surrounding QB Lamar Jackson’s future have shrouded the Ravens’ season in a degree of both uncertainty and urgency. The Ravens crushed the Jets in Week 1, but that is hardly an indictment of their ranks in the 2022 NFL hierarchy. Baltimore’s victory over opposing QB Joe Flacco was expected, and so will this one.
Fans should be encouraged by Miami’s Week 1 performance. However, a road contest versus the Ravens is hardly a fertile environment for QB Tua Tagovailoa, or rookie HC Mike McDaniel. Trust the former league MVP in the most crucial season of his career.
Picks: Ravens -3.5 | lean u44.5
What is Betting Against the Spread?
Betting “against the spread” refers to the act of choosing the winning team based on a numeric handicap placed on the team that oddsmakers believe is superior, rather than picking the outright winner. For example, if the Rams face the Bengals, and oddsmakers set the spread at Rams -3.5, you would need Los Angeles to win by 4 or more points in order to cash your Rams bet.
What is an Over/Under Bet?
Over/Under is a wager based on how many points you think will be scored in a specific game. Oddsmakers set the total, and bettors decide whether the final score will be higher or lower than that number. If an Over/Under is set at 44.5 points and you bet Over, you will need the combined score of both teams to be 45 points or higher to win your bet.
What is a Moneyline Bet?
A moneyline bet involves choosing which team you believe will win a specific matchup. The moneyline favorite carries a minus designation, like -130. This means that you need to wager $130 to earn a $100 profit. Conversely, the underdog carries a plus designation, like +110. This means that you win $110 in profit on a $100 bet.
