Here we are, ready to kick off the official 2019 NFL Season which as you are ALL aware of is the 100th Season! I am going to take 6 total bets this first week and get my feet wet. Week 1 for me is all about setting back and watching how the teams actually perform.

PITTSBURGH @ NEW ENGLAND
I love the patriots to cover their spread (see below), but I also really like the under on this game. The Patriots defense should be able to neutralize Juju Smith-Schuster. If Devin Bush can help lead the Steelers defense they may be able to slow the Patriots down a bit. At the end of the day, 50 is just too darn high!
NEW ENGLAND -5.5
I love this line for a lot of different reasons. To start, the Patriots are the defending champs and with the home-field advantage, there will be enough excitement in the stadium to help Tom Brady easily beat this. Overall, I feel like the Steelers are going to have problems on defense. If they don’t show up, Bill Bellichick will no doubtingly take advantage.
CINCINNATI @ SEATTLE
The Bengals have one of the worst O-line in the league. How they are going to drive up a huge score without A.J. Green on the field is beyond me. Russle Wilson is typically a slow scoring QB that seems to come alive in the 2nd half. With all this considered, I don’t expect this to be a big scoring game.
To the above points, the Seahawks should be able to cover this spread. We are talking about a TD and a Feild goal. Considering how poorly the Bengals did last year against defending the run, the Seahawks should slide into an easy 10+ point win!
The Titans are a running team and the Brows struggled last season to defend the run. Now bring it back to the Titans defense with athletes like Kevin Byard and Jurrell Casey the Brows are going to have a long day ahead of them. The fact that the books are giving Tennessee points here is just a no brainer!
Cam, Cam, Cam – now that you are healthy I will get behind you! I think this is going to be a close game ultimately with the RAMS barely making it out. With the downgraded Rams offense line, the Panthers defense should be able to limit some big plays. The Panthers run game should be on point and allow them to keep up with the Rams in scoring.
