Here are my week one picks for the games this week.
Bills 38, Jets 21
Everyone expects a defense game. I think it is a shootout. I also like the over on the Vegas line of 41.5.
Falcons 24, Bears 20
The Falcons face a Super Bowl loss hangover and on not playing on the turf this weekend. I think they win but struggle a little to get their high powered offense going.
Packers 23, Seahawks 20
Neither team will be able to run the ball. Wilson is a much better QB at home versus on the road. I am taking the better QB of the two to win the game.
Cards 31, Lions 28
Another shootout with the underrated Cards getting a big win on the road. Should be an excited game to watch.
Texans 26, Jags 14
Expect the Texans defense to shut down the Jags until garbage time. Savage plays a mistake free game as the Texans dominate.
Eagles 28, Redskins 21
Eagles start their march to a surprise playoff berth with a key road win in the division. I love the Philly defense and the Eagles -1 against the spread as well.
Titans 23, Raiders 17
Titans play old school power football and keep the high powered Raiders offense in check.
Bengals 27, Ravens 20
Love the Bengals to cover the 3 points and to move the ball through the air against the Raven defense. Ravens make it close late.
Steelers 30, Browns 21
Another high scoring game with the Browns keeping it close and giving the Steelers a scare for 3 quarters. I think Martavis Bryant has a big game and Kizer plays well.
Rams 20, Colts 10
Colts do almost nothing with Luck at QB. Rams play a safe game plan and handle the Colts with ease.
Panthers 31, 49ers 14
49ers will get better as the year goes on but expect them the struggle big time early in the season. Give the 5 points and take the Panthers.
Giants 20, Cowboys 16
The Giants have the Cowboys number and their defense is Super Bowl quality. I think they really make life miserable for Prescott and stop Elliott big time.
Saints 30, Vikings 24
Another high scoring week one game. Brees spreads it around, and Peterson and Ingram are effective on the ground. Play the over 48.5 on the Vegas line.
Chargers 23, Broncos 14
Big defensive opener for the Chargers. Denver’s defense will be huge as well but Rivers makes more plays Siemian. Take the Chargers +3.
