NFL football pool, pick’em, office pool, confidence picks: Back the Denver Broncos in Week 2, 2022

The 2022 NFL season is off and running and if you leaned too heavily on home teams while making your NFL office pool picks in Week 1, you’re behind the eight-ball entering Week 2. Road teams went 9-6-1 straight-up during the opening weekend of the season, but only four road teams are favored in the Week 2 NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook. The Bengals are seven-point favorites over the Cowboys on the road after Dak Prescott underwent surgery to repair a broken thumb this week. Cincinnati lost as a 6.5-point favorite against Pittsburgh in Week 1, but the Bengals could be a popular option for Week 2 NFL confidence pool picks given how poor Dallas looked last week, even with Prescott. Before you make your NFL predictions, you need to see the Week 2 NFL football pool picks from SportsLine’s proven model.

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up more than $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 139-98 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

More importantly for NFL confidence pool players, the model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, the model has simulated the entire Week 2 NFL schedule 10,000 times and generated its optimal NFL pick’em plays. Go to SportsLine to see them now.

Top Week 2 NFL office pool predictions

One of the top Week 2 NFL predictions from the model: The Denver Broncos (-10) comfortably beat the Houston Texans at home. Denver head coach Nathaniel Hackett is facing serious questions after attempting a 64-yard field goal facing a 17-16 deficit with less than a minute to play rather than allow Russell Wilson to attempt to convert a fourth-and-five.

Meanwhile, the Texans blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter against the Colts and wound up tying. Houston punted five times and fumbled once during its last six possessions against Indianapolis and was outgained by a total of 218 yards (517-299) in the Week 1 tie.

The model is expecting Denver to bounce back in Week 2, while it is expecting regression from a Houston team that relied on five Indianapolis fumbles to stay competitive. Over its 10,000 simulations, the SportsLine Projection Model expects Wilson to pile up over 300 yards of total offense and a couple of touchdowns as Denver wins nearly 80 percent of the time. See the rest of the model’s Week 2 NFL pool picks here.

How to make Week 2 NFL office pool picks

The model also made the call on every other Week 2 NFL game and has strong picks for potentially close matchups like Ravens vs. Dolphins and Jaguars vs. Colts. It’s also calling for another underdog to pull off an upset and several big favorites to struggle more than they are expected to. You can only see all of the model’s NFL pool picks here.
