NFL Week 2 betting recap: Bad beats and big payouts

We all know “The North Remembers,” but Week 2 is one week the AFC North will want to forget forever. Take a look at this ugliness:

Ravens: Lose 42-38 at home to the Dolphins as 3.5-point favorites despite leading 35-14 entering the fourth quarter.

Browns: Lose 31-30 at home to the Jets and a backup quarterback as 6.5-point favorites despite leading 30-17 with less than two minutes remaining.

Bengals: Lose 20-17 at the Cowboys as 7.5-point favorites after allowing a backup quarterback to engineer a game-winning drive.

Steelers: Lose 17-14 at home to the Patriots as 2.5-point underdogs (This is the least-egregious loss of the bunch but still not a good outcome).

We hope you didn’t bet on any of those teams who went 0-4 both straight-up (SU) and against the spread (ATS). The flip side is that two of those losses provided AFC East teams with epic wins as underdogs, especially the Jets. 

Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly from Week 2 NFL betting.
