Week 2 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Beazley)

Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.

Earlier this week, John Trifone posted his Week 2 picks and Dan Yanotchko posted his picks. Now it's Sean Beazley's turn to post his Week 2 picks.

With that said, here are Sean Beazley's Week 2 NFL picks against the spread:

Tennessee Titans -1.5 over Jacksonville Jaguars (5 Units)

It's time to capitalize on Week 1 overreactions. The Jaguars defense was amazing on the road vs. Houston last week recording 10 sacks and four turnovers. The Titans didn't play well in a loss at home vs. Oakland. I think the Titans will be fired up in this one especially since they were humiliated in Jacksonville last year. Titans 27, Jags 21.

Los Angeles Chargers -3.5 over Miami Dolphins (4 Units)

I love the Chargers in this spot. I love all of the Chargers weapons in this one -- Philip Rivers, Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen. I also love the Chargers defense. They can put pressure on the QB, and their corners are probably one of the better duos in the league. I expect Jay Cutler to play like, well, Jay Cutler. Chargers win big, 30-17.

Indianapolis Colts +7 over Arizona Cardinals (5 Units)

Another overreaction spot this week as I think most think the Colts are going to get run out of the building given how they played vs. the Rams last week. The Cardinals will be without David Johnson and two linemen this week. I think it will take time to adjust without DJ. Carson Palmer is done. I think the Colts win this one outright. Colts, 23-20.
