NFL odds, voted for Week 2: Advanced Computer Model loving Rams and Eagles

Week 2 of the season is here, and NFL odds were on the move as a kickoff approach and news breaks. The Patriots and Jaguars get involved in Florida in a rematch of last season's AFC Championship game. The line is a pick for the 16:25 clock. ET started after the spread had moved as high as Patriots -2.5. In the meantime, fans of Green Bay are excited, hoping that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be healthy enough to face the Vikings against NFC North on Sunday. The Packers appear on Sunday as a one-point favorite at the showdown on some books and underdogs on others. With so much uncertainty and so many NFL opportunities swinging from side to side, you'll want to see the NFL picks and predictions from SportsLine's advanced computer model.

This proprietary computer model reached 176-80 last season, surpassing more than 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and 2017. It also accounted for more than 98 percent of the experts covered by NFLPickWatch.com during this period. In addition, there were 48-34 at A-rated picks against last season's spread, and $ 100 in the weather that followed it in the last two seasons are nearly $ 4,000.

It finished 1 week hard and nailed three of its last four picks, including supporting the Jets (+281) on the money line in their 48-17 Lions' excitement on Monday night.

Now it has simulated every Snap of Week 2 of the NFL season 2018 10,000 times and its Week 2 NFL picks are in.

A week 2 NFL choose the model Likes: the Eagles (-3) beat the Buccaneers on the road.

Nick Foles continues to fill for Carson Wentz and the model says he pushes for 300 yards and two touchdowns. The Bucs came 263 yards from Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was impressive in the first week instead of Jameis Winston (suspension), but the Eagles win just 62 percent of the time and cover more than half of the simulations. Back the Under (44) also because that hits over 60 percent of the time.

Another of the top week 2 NFL picks, according to the model: the Rams (-12.5) will receive the win against the Cardinals, but it will be closer than Vegas expects. Of all NFL spreads this week, 12.5 is the biggest, but do not expect the Rams to cover.

After opening as a 10.5-point favorite, the line has moved two points in favor of Los Angeles. The reason: The Cardinals had been embarrassed at home by the Redskins, while the Rams looked sharp in their 33:13 road victory over the Raiders on Monday night.

But according to the model, the NFL quota movement has put a lot of emphasis on Arizona. The computer projects Sam Bradford to jump back and throw for 216 yards and a touchdown while Larry Fitzgerald leads the team in yards for the second straight week. Running back David Johnson has a back injury but practiced this week.

The model also calls for a big day for Jared Goff (246 passing yards and a touchdown) and Todd Gurley, who is said to have over 120 general-purpose yards. However, the Cardinals cover the spread in almost 60 percent of the simulations, and the Under (45) is valuable as it can be found in over 50 percent of the simulations.

The model also has a strong array of choices to watch for the big AFC Championship Game rematch between the Patriots and Jaguars, and calls for a top Super Bowl contender to be shocked by a big underdog on the road.
