NFL Picks Week 2

Texans vs. Panthers

The Texans fell at home last week to the Kansas City Chiefs.  Their offense didn’t look good and it led to a change at quarterback as Ryan Mallett gets the start.  Mallet might be more effective than Brian Hoyer but I think Cam Newton and the Panthers will have just enough on offense to hold off J.J. Watt and the Texans.

Winner:   Panthers

Score prediction:       20-17  Panthers   

Points spread:      Panthers  -2.5

Over/under:  39 – Under

49ers vs. Steelers

The Steelers found a running threat while Le’Veon Bell is out injured in veteran DeAngelo WilliamsBen Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense moved the ball against the Patriots last week they just couldn’t get touchdowns.  It will be a tough game against Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers but I think the Steelers will get the win at home.  NFL Picks week 2.

Winner:   Steelers

Score prediction:       23-19  Steelers   

Points spread:      Steelers -7

Over/under:  45.5 – Under
