    Props & Hops: NFL Week 2 Bets

    NFL bets distilled from the best football gambling podcasts. Plus, a session IPA made for game day.

    It's Overreaction Week in the NFL, so this week's task is to sift through the noise and isolate the signal from what we saw in Week 1. After hours' worth of listening to the best football gambling podcasts, I've identified six bets worth making on the Week 2 board and listed them below.

    Check out this week's episode of Props & Hops for the rationale behind each wager and more actionable takeaways courtesy of some trusted sources:

    You can listen to Props & Hops on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or just about anywhere else where podcasts can be found.

    And now, the Week 2 portfolio:

    Teaser: Tampa Bay -2.5 vs. Carolina, Kansas City -2.5 at Chargers

    Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs get the nod as the favorite teaser leg of the week.

    Teaser: Pittsburgh -1.5 vs. Denver, Tennessee -1.5 vs. Jacksonville

    Split ticket: San Francisco/Jets Under 41.5, San Francisco team total Under 24.5 (majority on full game Under)

    Indianapolis -3 vs. Minnesota

    Atlanta/Dallas shortest TD Under 1.5 yards

    Atlanta/Dallas: Falcons first team to score

    And few things pair better with betting than beer, so this week on Props & Hops a session IPA made for game day gets the spotlight:

    Easy Jack: easy drinking, easily accessible, and an easy decision to pair with football betting.
