Week 1 of the NFL 2018-19 season is officially in the books and what a wild ride it was. Bucs over Saints. Jets over Lions. Who saw that coming? 


So, what's the only thing left to do until Thursday night finally tides us all over again for Week 2? 


Cure your NFL Week 1 hangover and football withdrawal by taking a look at the Week 2 lines hot off the wire. 

Right off the bat, you have to be intrigued by the Buffalo Bills as +7.5-point underdogs at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. I'll be the first to admit that Buffalo may have just come up the tiniest bit short of covering their +7-point spread in a 47-3 beatdown at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. But spreads greater than one touchdown don't roll around in the NFL too often, especially not in favor of the home team. 


A second line to keep an eye on is the Cleveland Browns vs. New Orleans Saints (-8.5) matchup down in New Orleans. The Saints faced a similar spread as -9.5-point favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, but New Orleans was stunned in a 48-40 shootout loss to a Bucs team led by backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. 


If games like the one in New Orleans scared you away from spreads, don't worry, we've got the Over/Under lines too. 

The Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers are eying a hefty 53-point total O/U, but they are also two of the most explosive offenses in the league. With or without Le'Veon Bell, James Conner was sharp in Week 1 and the Steelers can always find points through Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster's hands with Ben Roethlisberger's arm. 


New Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will also look to build off an incredible season-opening performance against the Chargers, headlined by four touchdown passes, no interceptions and 38 points.
