While 4 may seem a little high on the surface, it makes sense. True, the Raiders are at home in the beginning of a crucial season with a lot on the line. It’s just that with the deficiencies they face along both lines of scrimmage, I see what they’re trying to do not sticking as well this week as it might in others. Defensively, I see them having a hard time stopping a fresh Ravens’ offense, while the Ravens’ offense should encounter less resistance. In the end, I think that shakes out to a better than 5-point win in week one. I’ll take the Ravens.

Free Pick: 
Take Baltimore -4

Granted, it seems counterintuitive to lay a number like this against a team that plays defense as good as the Bears do, especially when you're working in a new quarterback. For however much flack the Bears have caught the last few seasons, they have still managed to remain a .500 team, not just some conference doormat. It's just hard imagining this Chicago offense managing to thrive in this road spot. While their defense could make this a close game where having this many points feels like a luxury, I see their own offense as facing an even more uphill battle where points might be few and far between. I'll take the Rams in Week 1 -7.5 at Bovada.

Free Pick: 
Take the Rams -7.5

Cleveland out-rushed opponents last year by a 148-111 per-game margin, and teams that win the ground battles cover the spread about 65 percent of the time. The Browns also gave Kansas City all it could handle in that playoff game last January and covered the spread. Yes, Mahomes is great, and he's got an array of weapons to work with, but he doesn't play defense. We expect a close game here, and while the Chiefs will probably win outright, we're taking the Browns and the points for our free NFL betting pick.  

Free Pick: 
Take Cleveland +5.5

Obviously, there is no such thing as a sure bet, especially in a Week 1 match-up where expectations are volatile. Not to mention, Atlanta still has undeniable concerns on the defensive side of the football. However, Philadelphia has those same concerns on defense, where they have declined every year since their 2017 Super Bowl run. Purely from a match-up standpoint, the Eagles' biggest weakness is over the middle of the field where the Falcons like to attack. The linebackers are a complete mess, and there is minimal confidence in the secondary. All of these factors lead me to believe the Falcons will move the football and scrap away at conversions to create scoring opportunities. I just don't see Philadelphia replicating that formula on the other side of the football. If Hurts turns the ball over, things could get ugly as well.

Free Pick: 
Take Atlanta -3.5

Dallas is better than what it showed last year; with a (mostly) healthy Prescott and offensive line, and a (hopefully) improved defense, the Cowboys should win nine or ten games this season. Tampa, meanwhile, should be great again and should win this game, but eight points seems a bit much. Dallas might not win this game outright, but we're taking the points here.
Free Pick: 
Take the Cowboys +9

On paper, a pick on the “under” may seem counterintuitive, with the biggest offensive sparkplug in the sport in Mahomes taking on the best big-game QB of all-time in Brady. Something just tells me the game will be slightly more subdued than what some are envisioning. For what it's worth, this pair of quarterbacks have gone under seven times in ten combined Super Bowl appearances. I picture enough turnovers, red-zone stoppages, untimely penalties, and overall defensive resistance to make getting to 56 points an uphill battle in this game.

Free Pick: 
I'm betting that the Chiefs-Buccaneers Super Bowl game goes “under” 56 points.

Again, no one would have a right to be that surprised if the Chiefs we all know came out and ran Buffalo a little ragged. That possibility is on the table, even if you’re unapologetically pro-Buffalo in this matchup. But with what seems to at least be a small kink in the Kansas City formula, combined with the recent form of the Bills, this game starts to have a real heads-or-tails feel to it. Even if it seems unlikely that a game that promises this much scoring will fall within the three-point spread, taking points in this one might be a good idea on a team that could easily win the game.
Free Pick: 
Take the Bills

Call me crazy, but I think Tampa Bay is playing their best football of the season. Add a little Brady magic, and I like the underdogs here. Take the Buccaneers +3 and also consider the under 52

Free Pick: 
Take the Bucs +3 - lean to the Under 52
