The NFL is back! The Eagles and Falcons kicked the season off Thursday night and it’s time to look ahead toward Sunday and find the week 1 NFL winners to bet! I’ve singled out four games that are the week 1 NFL best bets.
4 Free ATS Picks for NFL Week 1:
4 – 49ers +6.5 (at Vikings) – This isn’t so much a play on the new look Niners as it is against the Vikes. Kirk Cousins makes his debut with the Vikings and I think there could be some hiccups. Jimmy G keeps it close in Minny on Sunday and I see a late FG deciding this one.
3 – Titans/Dolphins Under 45 – If you’re a NFL defender, do either of these offenses scare you? Not a lot of playmakers on the field Sunday in Miami. Mike Vrabel’s first game with Tennessee will see a stout defense and ball control offense to keep the clock moving. If either team can score three TD’s, that’ll be enough to win this game.
2 – Panthers -3 (against Cowboys) – The Panthers are tough at home and the Cowboys are going to take a step back this season. I see Cam Newton having a big game and letting the Carolina defense close things out in the 4th with some stops.
1 – Jaguars -3 (at Giants) – Jalen Ramsey drew a lot of attention with his talking in the offseason. Well he can back it up against OBJ on Sunday. Doubt Blake Bortles all you want, but are the Giants really ready to hang with a team that was minutes away from the Super Bowl last season? The Jags D steps up in week 1 and makes a statement. Take the Jags to easily cover a FG as our top week 1 NFL pick.
Get on these games NOW before the books can react and adjust the lines against us.
