The National Football League will be here before you know it! It’s never too early to predict Week 1 of the league. There are some fantastic games on tap for the first week. Let’s take a look at the Week 1 NFL odds Predictions.

2016 NFL Season Week 1 Betting Predictions

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons

A battle of NFC South teams in Atlanta. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are under new leadership, and have a ton of pieces back from a team that started last season strong. The Atlanta Falcons have been an organization that has kind of went backwards and a little sideways the last couple of seasons. How good is Matt Ryan is now the question. Obviously, Julio Jones is needed for the Falcons in this one. Look for Tampa Bay to be a much better defensive team this season, and start by slowing down Jones and the Falcons offense. The bet for this game is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3 over the Atlanta Falcons.

Green Bay Packers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to be one of the toughest young teams in the National Football League. The Jaguars drafted two guys in the draft that will likely start on the defense. The offense has shown signs of improvement over the last several seasons. Look for the best season of his career from Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles. While the Jaguars are going to have a tough time winning this game over the veteran crew Green Bay Packers; the Jaguars will cover this spread. Look for a very competitive Week 1 game, but in the end, the bet for this game has got to be the Jacksonville Jaguars +10 over the Green Bay Packers.

Buffalo Bills vs. Baltimore Ravens

Two teams with massive question marks get together in the opening week of the National Football League season. Rex Ryan in his second season as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills has his work cut out for him. The Patriots appear to be the favorite in the AFC East, and Miami seemingly has improved, and the Jets are still going to be a competitive team. For Baltimore, can they bounce back after a horrendous season of a year ago? Who is going to be the productive running back for the Ravens this season? This will be a heck of a game, but in the end, you have to side with the home team. Bet the Baltimore Ravens -3 over the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
