A Closer Look At The Top NFL ATS Expert Picks For Week 1 (Sept 8-11)
Carolina at Denver
When: September 08, 2016, 08:30 PM ET
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Live Stream: NBC Sports Network
NFL Odds: Carolina -3 / Total: 42
Analysis: Let me get right to the point by saying that I fully expect Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers to beat the Denver Broncos soundly by pressuring young quarterback Trevor Siemian into at least one costly turnover and likely two. While the Panthers have gone 0-4 ATS in their last four road games, Cam Newton and company have also compiled a blistering11-5 ATS mark in their last 16 games overall.
I know the Broncos have gone 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games in the month of September, but I don’t see any way Denver wins this game against a Carolina team that will be fired up for this affair from the very start and should be even more explosive offensively this season with Kelvin Benjamin back on the field.
The Panthers win and cover!
My Pick: Carolina 27 Denver 20
Chicago Bears at Houston Texans
What: Sunday, September 11, 2016; 1:00 PM ET
When: NRG Stadium
NFL Odds: Chicago Bears +5.5 / Over/Under: 44
Analysis: There’s no other way to say it. This Week 1 mismatch is a virtual lock alert NFL betting enthusiasts! There’s not a whole lot of thinking that needs to go into making this pick with the Houston Texans simply being the better team in all three phases of the game. I fully expect the Texans’ voracious defense to force Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler into at least one costly turnover while Houston’s new-look offense puts just enough points on the board against Chicago’s underwhelming defense to cover the spread.
I know the Bears have gone 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games, but Jay Cutler and company are also just 1-4 ATS in their last five games and a winless 0-4 ATS in their last four games in the month of September. Conversely, the Texans have gone 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 4-2 ATS in their last six home dates.
The Texans will win and easily cash in!
My Pick: Houston 27 Chicago 20
Green Bay Packers (11-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11)
When: Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 1:00 pm
Where: EverBank Field
NFL Line: Jacksonville Jaguars +4.5 / Over/Under: 48
Analysis: Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers may be on the road in this regular season opener, but I’m still a bit surprised that the NFL betting line is only 4.5 points. Still, I don’t think this is a trap game and believe the Packers are going to win and cover the NFL betting line with room to spare.
Green Bay has gone 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. On the flip side of the coin, Jacksonville is just 10-21-1 ATS in their last 32 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games overall.
Yes, I know the Packers are 1-4 ATS in their last five meetings against Jacksonville, but they’re getting the easy touchdown win in this one!
My Pick: Green Bay 27 Jacksonville 21
