Here we are, the first Sunday of the year with football! The moment we’ve all been waiting for. If you’re a hopeless Jet fan like me or your team just sucks your sure to want to make some money off our best picks for the week.
Falcons (-6.5) at Bears 1pm
Let’s not get cute with this one. The Bears are set to be a bottom five team and other than Jordan Howard there doesn’t seem to be a glimmer of hope on offense. Even if you think the Falcons regress they can surely cover by a TD against Chicago. The Falcons should put up 35 at least.
Pick: Falcons -6.5
Jaguars at Texans (-5) 1pm
There’s no way Houston is losing this game, no way. Houston will be playing for the city and with their anchor on defense making his return, J.J Watt to go with their #1 ranked defense from a year ago. It’s going to be an emotional and passionate performance from the Texans. Last year the Texans won by 24 to kick off their season. The Jaguars are still well the Jaguars expect a 20-10 win by the Texans.
Pick: Texans -5
Colts at Rams (-3.5) 4pm
At first glance you would be sure to side with the Colts, that is with Andrew Luck. No luck for the Colts both literally and figuratively with Scott Tolzien as the helm. The Rams will pound the rock with Gurley and I actually expect Jarred Goff, who has looked great this preseason, to torch that porous Colts D. Big win for the Rams 31-17
Pick: Rams -3.5
Chargers at Broncos (-3) Monday Night 10pm
The Chargers are due for a rebound year after a year where they couldn’t catch a break they have Keenan Allen. They also have a budding star on defense in Joey Bosa. The Denver D is scary and covets Von Miller but Trevor Simean is not quite up to par with Phillip Rivers. The Charger are 5-2 ATS on the road in Denver. Take the new look LA Chargers and the points.
Pick: Chargers +3
