Week 2 NFL Best Bets: Fade the Colts and Bills and more of Jason La Canfora's picks – CBSSports.com

So far, so good.

After years of slow starts, we managed to go 3-0 in this space in Week 1, and, actually, did it fairly comfortably. The Rams and Ravens took care of business easily, and the Bengals ended up covering easily, but that was only because the Colts fumbled on what was shaping up to be a potential game-winning drive.

The other team we liked last week to get drubbed, the Raiders, fell apart late (same with the Colts), and their point spread has surged this week, while I still see value in doubling down against the Bills and Colts.
