The First Sunday of meaningful National Football League games is finally here.
I know you are excited, but remember this is only Week 1 and nothing would surprise me on this first “Even Given Sunday.”
I recommend betting low volume during week one of the NFL, but I do have six official plays for Sunday. For what it’s worth we got off to a 1-0 start picking the Eagles on Thursday Night.
Remember to bet responsibly and to shop around for the best lines possible.
Here is my Week 1 NFL Six Pack
Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Giants 1pm EST
First Pick: UNDER 42.5
The Jaguars had both the league’s number one rushing and passing defense in 2017.
The UNDER is 5-1 in Jacksonville’s last six games as a road favorite of three points or less.
The UNDER is 6-1 in the Giants last seven games an underdog.
Second Pick Giants +3
Jacksonville is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games in Week 1.
This game will be important for the Giants opening up a new season healthy. I will take the Giants and the points as a home underdog.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints 1:00pm EST
Third Pick Tampa Bay +10.5
Jameis Winston or no Jameis Winston 10 points is a big number between two division rivals on week one.
7 out of the last 8 games between these two teams has been decided by seven points or less.
Saints offense is explosive, but I expect a disrespected Buccaneers team to keep up enough to cover.
Houston Texans at New England Patriots at 1:00pm EST
Fourth Pick: Houston Texans +7
New England is 1-4 against the spread during week one the past five seasons.
Houston is 5-2 against the spread in the last 7 September games. The Texans also have the talent advantage at several key positions. I feel this is a good spot to take the Texans as a touchdown underdog.
5dimes still has this line at +7. Bovada, Bookmaker, William Hill, MGM Mirage and Wynn LV have the line at 6.5 and you can buy the half point. I stress this because is you can only get +6, I recommend that you pass and just enjoy the game.
Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos 4:25pm EST
Fifth Pick Denver Broncos -3
Seattle 1-12 against the spread in their last 13 road openers and just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven week 1 games overall.
Broncos are 4-1-1 in last six Week 1 games.
Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers 4:25pm EST
Sixth Pick Carolina Panthers -3
The Cowboys are 1-4 against the spread in their last four games as an underdog.
Panthers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite of 3 points or less.
