Nfl Week 1 Lines & Picks

The Green Bay Packers carry an 8-1 record into their matchup this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season. We’ve picked a winner in that game and also have plays in Sunday’s San Francisco 49ers vs Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers vs Los Angeles Chargers matchups. If the Eagles can’t break through 100 yards, they’ll have a hard time winning here. Jalen Hurts has been throwing well lately, but if the Eagles are turned into one dimension, that could put a lot of pressure on him. The Saints certainly aren’t the juggernaut they were when Drew Brees was still playing a few years ago. But they have a competent team, and they are a strong and well-rounded team with a strong attacking streak and Alvin Camara up front.

The Giants were 3-13 in Overs last season, dead last in the NFL. But even with Saquon Barkley’s workload status unknown heading into Week 1, Daniel Jones and the New York offense should have plenty of opportunities to hold up why not try here their fair share of the scoring on Sunday. That combined with a Teddy Bridewater-led Broncos offense should be enough to get the total above 42.5. Let’s run through some of the bigger bets and notable decisions for the sportsbooks in Week 1 of the NFL season.

So both of these squads are looking to get back in the win column this week. I’d say both of these teams are around a similar playing field, but the Bears have an advantage being at home. The only game in which the Bears have lost at home this season was two weeks ago against the Aaron Rodgers led Packers, which has become sort of a tradition here in recent memory. I’ll buy low on this Bears team in this spot and fade the Fraudy9ers.

If this line continues to climb, Daniel Jones and the Giants could offer solid value as near full touchdown home underdogs. The Steelers have covered the current six-point spread in their last two games versus the Patriots and will be at full health. A primetime season-opening matchup on the road against the defending champs is the most uphill of uphill battles, and the Pats will come into the contest enjoying full health at key positions. Sure, Julian Edelman will be playing his first snaps since the Super Bowl after recovering from thumb surgery and Josh Gordon will also be jumping into game action after an extended layoff.

Bridgewater is also on pace for 44 passing touchdowns and no interceptions. It’s far from a stretch to say he’s the best quarterback in Denver since Manning by a massive amount. Courtland Sutton seemed to enjoy the QB upgrade on Sunday as he caught nine passes for 159 yards.

You will need to wager $350 to make $100 in profit on the Patriots – is that worth it? But if you decided to wager on the Miami Dolphins and they ended up winning, you’d make a pretty penny ($500 plus your $100 bet back) by betting on the underdog. If you’ve found this page, you’re looking to learn how to bet on the NFL. The 56th Super Bowl will take place in Inglewood California at the SoFi Stadium on February 13, 2022. The Super Bowl is the most popular sporting event in North America and is the most popular sporting event to bet on around the world.

Nfl Betting Market Watch: Line Moves, Early Action And Bookmaker Insights

Cleveland went into halftime in a tie with the Texans but did what the great teams do – regroup, change tactics, and go on a 17-7 second-half run. Baker Mayfield did throw another interception, his second of the season, but overall he was very efficient as he completed 19 of 21 passes. Nick Chubb racked up 95 rushing yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries, and Cleveland didn’t have to do much offensively to come away with the win. The Bears don’t have the same vaunted defense they used to, but Chicago proved in Week 2 that their defense is nothing to scoff at. Roquan Smith ran an interception back for a touchdown while Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks, Bilal Nichols, and Robert Quinn ran rampant over the Bengals’ offensive line.

Although bookmakers roll out a nominal NFL line for this week 1 matchup, the public is all over the Niners with 97% of early consensus betting. That’s largely down to the Jimmy Garoppolo Kool-Aid everyone is still high on. As a result, the NFL line has whittled down to a PK, and it won’t be surprising if it crosses completely over with the Niners moving into minus-money ahead of week 1. Granted the Titans aren’t a team to fear but they’re not pushovers either.

And with the all the new additions for both teams on offense, it’s likely that inexperienced bettors will take the Over here. It’s not uncommon for Week 1 NFL spreads to be very tight as oddsmakers and NFL bettors try to figure out each team. However, this line feels off as the Titans are just the better and more proven team. They have a better run game and an offensive line that should be able to protect Ryan Tannehill.

Speaking of the worst offensive lines in the league, the Raiders have fared much better in protecting Derek Carr than I ever would have expected. If you told me before the game last week that of the Steelers or Raiders, one would have twice as many QB hits as the other team, I would have never picked Vegas. However, Carr wasn’t under the type of pressure I expected against T.J.
