2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools Week 2 Recap

By Jeff Stinger

Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season is in the books, and the fortunate survivors at our Nitro NFL Survivor Pools who escaped the dangers of Week 1 should breathe a little easier this week following a relatively average number of upsets. However, not everyone was safe from getting axed and we’re here to break down the survivor activities across the site’s eight public buy-in survivor pools.

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at what transpired in the intense Week 2 action of the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools campaign.

2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools: Week 2 Recap

A Mere Flesh Wound Compared to the Week 1 Bloodbath


Nitrobetting continues its season-long quest of delivering the best NFL survivor experience on the web with its Nitro NFL Survivor Pool contests with a total purse worth over 10,730 mBTC (~$208,000) across eight unique survivor pools.

As Nitrobetting users may recall, a mass exodus of aspiring survivors occurred from the upset-heavy Week 1 slate that saw over half of the participants in each pool vanish into thin air. Week 2 was, thankfully, a bit kinder to the remaining survivors.

An average of about 25 percent of the Week 2 field from each pool saw exits from their respective pools. While that number is still relatively large considering the losses suffered by the likes of the favored Colts, Ravens, Raiders, and Bengals (again), it pales in comparison to the havoc that Week 1’s numerous upsets wrought from earlier. 

It goes without saying that treading through the 2022 NFL season’s waters has been trickier compared to the prior seasons wherein the huge number of upsets in a given week didn’t come until the midway point of the campaign. In turn, we caution all remaining survivors to be at the top of their game the rest of the way. 

Here’s how the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape looks after Week 2:

NFL Survivor Picks for Week 3


Week 3 has a couple of intriguing matchups that appear to be decent survivor locks. The Saints travel to Carolina to take on the winless Panthers, with the former being a (-3.0) road favorite to date. New Orleans appeared outmatched by the Buccaneers this past weekend but should get back on the right track in a winnable Week 3 NFC South clash.

Another visiting team in line for an easy victory is the Chiefs, who travel to Indy in a battle against the spiraling Colts. Kansas City, a (-6.5) favorite to win its Week 3 contest, is averaging 35.5 points per game over the first two weeks of the campaign. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will face an Indianapolis squad that suffered a lackluster tie in Week 1 against the Texans and a stunning 24-point shutout loss to the Jaguars in Week 2 despite both divisional opponents being widely regarded as two of the worst teams in the NFL during the offseason.
