2016 NFL Season Week 1 Betting Predictions
“I’m pumped to be an Eagle & I’m ready to go to work.”
— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) April 29, 2016
Cleveland Browns vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Cleveland Browns are starting the season, and Robert Griffin III is the head man behind center. Will Griffin III stay healthy until this game? For Philadelphia, the big question will be Carson Wentz or Sam Bradford? Philadelphia is paying Bradford a ton of money, so it’s got to be him, right? Look for Philadelphia to get off to a fast start in this game. The Eagles are glad to be facing one of the worst teams in the league to start the season. Philadelphia comes into this game as a touchdown favorite, and that’s not enough in this game. The bet for NFL Week 1 is the Philadelphia Eagles -7 over the Cleveland Browns.
San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
In a battle of AFC West teams, this will actually be one of the best games of the opening week. San Diego has hopefully for their sake taken care of some of their defensive woes, and also their inability to have a top receiver. The Chargers are going to want to run the football, and take care of it. Kansas City is a question mark this season, as Andy Reid’s team will try to run the football as well. Alex Smith is still under center for the Chiefs, and Phillip Rivers is with San Diego. This game has too many points in Vegas. The Kansas City Chiefs are a touchdown favorite over the San Diego Chargers, and we want the underdog. Bet the San Diego Chargers +7 over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1.
Miami Dolphins vs. Seattle Seahawks
The Miami Dolphins went out on a little bit of a limb in their draft by getting Laramy Tunsil from Ole Miss, but they are excited about him protecting Ryan Tannehill. The Dolphins must have a monster season from Tannehill for them to compete in the AFC East. Seattle is going to once again be a great team, but are going to have to figure out their running game. In this opening game, the travel for the Dolphins is going to catch up with them right away. Look for a great first half game, but in the second half, Seattle runs away with it. Bet the Seattle Seahawks -7 over the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 of the NFL season.
There you have it. Some early season predictions out of the National Football League for Week 1. The countdown is on!
