Week 1 2021 Picks

Week 1 of every season is a mix of excitement and pressure especially coming off of a so so year last year.

Game 1: Phi +3.5 @ Atl

Eagles have chance to have top 5 offensive and defensive lines, both units start season healthy and I think give Eagles legit shot to win this game straight up.

Game 2: Phi @ Atl Over 48.5

Both offenses have advantages in this game, expect Eagles to give Hurts every opportunity in run option game, Eagles have upgraded speed at skill positions. Falcons pass game should have mismatches vs Eagles secondary, Eagles injuries at safety will make covering Pitts impossible.

Game 3: Sea -2.5 @ Ind

This is really a bet against the tumultuous summer the Colts have had this year. As an Eagles fan I have seen Carson Wentz at his best and worst, it is hard to imagine we are going to see the best after a summer where he was traded, got hurt an missed almost all of camp, came back and missed time for Covid, lost TY Hilton for the season and a number of key Colts missed time for Covid. Seattle on the other hand is bringing back most of the key components of their offense and look to have solidified their offensive line for the first time in a decade.

Game 4: Jax @ Hou +3.5

Honestly this is just a bet that the Jags should not be favored by 3.5 points over any team on the road with a rookie head coach and rookie QB. Last year the Jags won their opener and lost the next 15, I could see that for the Texans this year.

Game 5: 2 Team 6 Point Teaser: SF -2.5 @ Det & Chi @ LAR -2

The squarest teaser on the board, everyone will be teasing 49ers and Rams but they both follow the Stanford Wong rule of crossing the 7 and 3 giving us maximum value on the teaser.

Games not bet yet but waiting for number.

Mia @ NE

I really like the Pats but his game went from -2.5 to 3 and now is at 3.5. If this gets back down to to -3 before kickoff, I will take the Patriots,

Cle @ KC

Like the Browns here if I can get 6 again, currently the number is at 5.5, hoping money comes in on KC on Sunday and we can get 6 or 6.5 for the Browns.
