NFL WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

[email protected]
The defending Super Bowl champions at home on opening night? The Chiefs will face a Texans team without WR DeAndre Hopkins who was traded to Arizona. Remember what happened when KC played Houston in the playoffs last year? Yeah, more of the same in 2020…

Date: Thursday - September 10th @ 8:30pm
Our Pick: Kansas City 34, Houston 20

Odds: Chiefs -9 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

Atlanta is supposed to be one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season. They faced Seattle at home last year and lost 27-20. Seattle has won three of the last five against the Falcons and two of those wins were in Atlanta. Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate and he’ll get the best of Atlanta in Week 1…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: Seattle 27, Atlanta 24

Odds: Seahawks -2.5 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

The Bills begin their 2020 season looking to unseat New England as the perennial AFC West champ. The Jets could be the worst team in the NFL. Buffalo’s defense will dominate a weak Jets offense and then the Josh Allen-led Bills offense will pound on New York in a low-scoring affair…
Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: Buffalo 20, NY Jets 7

Odds: Bills -6.5 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

The Bears named Mitch Trubisky as their starting quarterback for Week 1. Just like that, Detroit got even closer to a victory. The Lions will have QB Matthew Stafford back and healthy. Detroit had its times last season, but injuries got the best of them. In Week 1 at home, Detroit gets win No. 1…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: Detroit 23, Chicago 20

Odds: Lions -2.5 @ BetOnline Sportsbook

The Packers won both games last year on their way to an NFC North title. Green Bay hadn’t beaten Minnesota since 2016 prior to last year. The Vikings made the postseason last year with the fifth-best scoring defense in the league. The Packers were much-improved with a running game that featured 1,000-yard back Aaron Jones. Minnesota went 6-2 at home last year and started this season with a win…
Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: Minnesota 23, Green Bay 16

Odds: Vikings -2.5 @ BetOnline Sportsbook

The Patriots have won five of the last eight against Miami. All those games featured Tom Brady as the New England quarterback. Now, it will be Cam Newton. The Dolphins, who drafted QB Tua Tagovailoa, will start veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Last year’s win was Miami’s first in Foxborough since 2008. Don’t expect another one so soon…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: New England 27, Miami 17

Odds: Patriots -6.5 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

Only two teams beat the Ravens last year. Somehow, one of them was the Browns. With a new head coach in Kevin Stefanski, Cleveland is supposed to contend for a playoff spot. We’ve all heard that before. Lamar Jackson ran 17 times for 103 yards and threw three touchdowns against Cleveland in December. Watch him do it all again…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 1:00pm
Our Pick: Baltimore 33, Cleveland 25

Odds: Ravens -6.5 @ BetOnline Sportsbook

Both the Chargers and Bengals will have new quarterbacks. In L.A., it’s veteran journeyman Tyrod Taylor while No. 1 overall draft pick Joe Burrow gets the nod in Cincy. The Bengals are the underdog at home coming off a 2-14 campaign in head coach Zac Taylor’s first season. The Chargers have more experience and the better defense, but remember that thing about west coast teams going east…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 4:05pm
Our Pick: Cincinnati 17, L.A. Chargers 16

Odds: Bangals +3 @ BetOnline Sportsbook

Ahh. Tom Brady in a Tampa Bay Bucs uniform. The Bucs open in New Orleans and face another 40-plus-year-old quarterback in Drew Brees. New Orleans has won the last three straight and 13 of the last 17. Brady will make a huge difference on offense, but the Bucs defense is still suspect. They gave up 28 points a game last year…
Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 4:25pm
Our Pick: New Orleans 33, Tampa Bay 30

Odds: Saints -3 @ BetOnline Sportsbook

San Francisco won both games against Arizona last season after losing the previous eight in a row. The 49ers are looking to get back to the Super Bowl and win it this time. The offense is powerful and the defense even more so. Arizona returns Rookie of the Year QB Kyler Murray and he will now have WR DeAndre Hopkins as his go-to target. The Niners are hard to beat at Levi’s Stadium. They went 6-2 at home last year…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 4:25pm
Our Pick: San Francisco 28, Arizona 21

Odds: 49ers -7 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

When the Cowboys played the Rams last year, the Dallas running game tore it up. Ezekiel Elliot ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns while Tony Pollard tallied 131 yards and one score on just 12 carries. The Rams would finish 9-7 and miss the postseason one year after having won an NFC title. The last time Dallas visited the Rams in L.A. was in the 2018 playoffs. This one will finish like that one…

Date: Sunday - September 13th @ 8:20pm
Our Pick: L.A. Rams 30, Dallas 22

Odds: Rams +2.5 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

The Steelers and Giants have played once every four years since 2000. Pittsburgh has won three of five games including the last two. QB Ben Roethlisberger returns from an elbow injury and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and RB James Conner are also healthy. The Giants are on their fifth head coach in five years – Joe Judge. Despite playing at home, the Steelers have the better roster…

Date: Monday - September 14th @ 7:10pm
Our Pick: Pittsburgh 23, N.Y. Giants 14

Odds: Steelers -6 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

The Titans and Broncos played last year and Denver surprise their playoff-bound opponent 16-0. Denver is a team on the rise with QB Drew Lock and two rookie receivers in Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler. They also have former Chargers RB Melvin Gordon in the backfield. Von Miller and a healthy Bradley Chubb lead what could be a very good defense. The Titans just added Jadeveon Clowney to an already stout defense and they return the NFL’s leading rusher in Derrick Henry. This should be a battle....

Date: Monday - September 13th @ 10:20pm
Our Pick: Denver 17, Tennessee 16

Odds: Broncos +2 @ MyBookie Sportsbook

Last Season Predictions

Seattle @ Denver
The Seahawks have won three of the last four against Denver, which includes the 43-8 stomping in Super Bowl XLVIII. Denver’s last win was at home in 2010. The Broncos will have a new QB in Case Keenum and a defense built around LB Von Miller and rookie DE Bradley Chubb. The Seahawks need to find a running game and only S Earl Thomas remains from the Legion of Boom defensive backfield. Give Denver a slight home field advantage… Denver 24, Seattle 20.

 

Washington @ Arizona
Since the 1999 season, the Redskins have beaten the Cardinals 11 of 14 times including last year’s 20-15 victory. The Redskins will have a new quarterback in Alex Smith and a loaded backfield with Samaje Perine (603 yards in 2017) and second-round draft pick Derrius Guice. The Cardinals will have a new quarterback of their own in Sam Bradford. Washington’s track record in this series is just too much… Washington 28, Arizona 21.

 

Dallas @ Carolina
Since 2005, the Cowboys and Panthers have met six times. Dallas has won five including all of the games played in Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium. Carolina went 6-2 at home last season. Dallas is recovering from a disappointing 9-7 season last year after winning the NFC East the previous year. The Cowboys have plenty of weapons – QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott to name a few. Carolina’s defense is the difference in this season opener… Carolina 20, Dallas 17.

 

Chicago @ Green Bay
Week 1’s Sunday night game is an NFC North showdown. The Packers have owned this series winning the last four straight and, since the 2009 season, 16 of the last 19 meetings. Chicago will have a new head coach in Matt Nagy, Kansas City’s former offensive coordinator. The problem is that the Bears defense is marginal and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers is back and healthy. Oh, and the game is at Lambeau Field… Green Bay 33, Chicago 17.

 

NY Jets @ Detroit
In the first of two opening week Monday night games, the Jets head to Ford Field in Detroit to take on the Lions. Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the Jets, but for how long? First-round pick Sam Darnold waits in the wings. The Lions have experience and have gone 9-7 in each of the past two seasons… Detroit 27, NY Jets 17.

 

LA Rams @ Oakland
The final game of Week 1 is a west coast matchup between the Rams and Raiders. The Rams will be looking to take the next step after winning the NFC West and then bowing out of the playoffs in the Wild Card round. The Rams have won three of the last four meetings with the Raiders. The last was in 2014, a 52-0 blowout back when the Rams were still in St. Louis. The game will mark the return of Jon Gruden to the head coaching ranks. It also marks the return of the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year (Todd Gurley of the Rams) and Defensive Player of the Year (Aaron Donald of the Rams). Advantage Rams… LA Rams 30, Oakland 23.
