NFL Preseason Week 2 Best Bets
Commanders (+3.5) over Ravens
The Ravens, on a 24-game preseason win streak, rested most of their key starters in last week's win over the Eagles. So, it's safe to bet on Lamar Jackson and Co. playing very little here.
Despite a Week 1 preseason road win over the Browns, Washington struggled to find any offensive rhythm with Sam Howell or Jacoby Brissett behind center.
For that reason, I look for Howell and Brissett to get significant playing time
as the Commanders not only look to settle in on a starting quarterback, but dig deep into what is an uneven roster.

One of the few preseason questions left for the Ravens to answer is who will be their No. 2 quarterback: Tyler Huntley or Josh Johnson? Oddly, Huntley, nursing a hamstring injury despite reportedly being in the lead to win the job, might not play much in this spot, leaving the 37-year-old Johnson plenty of snaps vs. Washington in the NFL Preseason.
Watching Johnson at quarterback, even against Washington's second and third-team teamers on defense, should give all bettors pause, even with a meaningless winning steak at play.
Game Information - NFL Week 2 Betting Odds
Without giving away all of my NFL betting strategy, I'm also intrigued by a road underdog getting more than a field goal against a team riding a meaningless winning streak.
Remember: Washington, losers of four straight exhibition games vs. Baltimore, doesn't have to win the game straight up, as losing by a FG or less would be just fine for all of us at Remix Sports Media.
