Get Nik Rivers NFL Picks for Week 2 here.

September 12, 2018

So here we go, the 2018 N.F.L. season is underway, and after a disastrous 7-8-1 week to start the season, for some reason I'm going public and have decided that I am going to share my picks with you each week. This is nothing to be proud of. As we make our way through the season.  I'm going to post my picks (vs. the point spread) here, long with my Lock of The Week, and Longshot of the Week.

Check back here for a running total of my wins & losses each week.

2018 - Week 2

At Cincinnati PKBaltimore - Baltimore looked like a world beater...but that was against the dumpster fire that appears to be the 2018 Bills. - CINCINNATI

At Washington-5.5Indianapolis - Alex Smith may be the savior that Waskington has been looking for, and A.P. looks fresh - WASHINGTON

At Atlanta-5.5Carolina - Matty Ice gets his ish together at the last minute in this one. - ATLANTA

Minnesota-1At Green Bay - Aaron Rogers may not be superhuman after all, the Vikes are for real - MINNESOTA

LA Chargers-7.5At Buffalo - See the dumpster fire reference earlier - LA CHARGERS (LOCK OF THE WEEK)

Houston-2.5At Tennessee - Deshaun and WIll Fuller V go cray cray against a Titans team still looking to find their way - HOUSTON
