Hence, if you’re looking to find out where the regular season betting value lies in every single matchup, then you should consider these early betting odds & expert picks for Week 1 of the 2017 NFL season.

2017 NFL Week 1 Picks Early Predictions for Every Game

Week 1

Chiefs at Patriots (-7)

Keep those ‘visions of love’ under control people. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are not, repeat…not going 16-0. Thus, New England wins, but K.C. covers as touchdown road dogs!

Pick: Patriots 27 Chiefs 21

Jets at Bills (-6)

LeSean McCoy is like, ‘I depend on me if I want it.’ The silk smooth running back and his Buffalo Bills cohorts will get it too against the dysfunctional J-E-T-S!

Pick: Bills 24 Jets 17

Falcons (-6) at Bears

The legendary Al Green can sing about ‘Love and Happiness’ all he wants. There will be none of that in the Windy City in NFL Week 1 as Matt Ryan and company rock and roll all over the beleaguered Bad News Bears!

Pick: Falcons 38 Bears 21

Jaguars at Texans (-4.5)

The Houston Texans are going to step in the name of love…all over a beaten and battered Blake Bortles en route to the easy home win over their AFC South divisional rivals in Week 1.

Pick: Texans 27 Jaguars 20

Eagles at Redskins (-3)

I see no reason why Kirk Cousins won’t throw three interceptions on purpose after getting the shaft from Washington management for the second straight offseason – after playing really solid football the season before. Philly gets the road win in this longtime NFC East divisional battle.

Pick: Eagles 28 Redskins 27

Cardinals at Lions (-3)

It’s about time for Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions to simply stop chasing waterfalls and driving their superstar Hall of Famers (Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson) into early retirement. Carson Palmer and company get the road win in Week 1.

Pick: Cardinals 23 Lions 16

Raiders (-1) at Titans

This matchup is going to be a straight, wild, wild west shootout. Thus, I like Marcus Mariota to out-duel Derek Carr and the Raiders while Tennessee’s powerful rushing attack keeps Khalil Mack from going nuts!

Pick: Titans 28 Raiders 27

Buccaneers at Dolphins (-1.5)

Miami is playing at home, but Ryan Tannehill can’t hold Jameis Winston’s jockstrap if you ask me! Tampa Bay gets the outright road upset in NFL Week 1.

Pick: Buccaneers 23 Dolphins 21

Ravens at Bengals (-1)

Baltimore’s owner Steve Bisciotti really pissed me off this week with his insanely nonsensical comments about ‘praying’ for whether his ravens team should sign Colin Kaepernick or not when he’s clearly better than anyone on their roster with starter Joe Flacco looking like he’s going to miss some serious time. Cincy wins this AFC North battle going away to cover the spread.

Pick: Bengals 31 Ravens 17

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers team looking for great Super Bowl appearance in 2017 NFL week 1?

Steelers (-9) at Browns

The Browns may have had a fantastic draft that netted them three rookie starters, but they’re not going to be able to hold down the fort at home against a Pittsburgh Steelers team looking for a Super Bowl appearance in 2017 and nothing else.

Pick: Steelers 30 Browns 20

Colts (-3) at Rams

The Rams are going to air it out early and often, but Jared Goff is certainly no Andrew Luck. Hell, he’s probably not even better than a decrepit and retired Peyton Manning. Indy wins easily to cover the spread!

Pick: Colts 35 Rams 24

Seahawks at Packers (-3)

I’m expecting another epic between these two legitimate Super Bowl title contenders, but for me, Seattle’s superior defense will be the difference.

Pick: Seahawks 28 Packers 27

Panthers (-4.5) at 49ers

I’m expecting Carolina’s Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly to make Frisco quarterback Brian Hoyer literally start crying by halftime!

Pick: Panthers 31 Niners 14

Giants at Cowboys (-5)

The Cowboys want revenge after losing to the G-Men twice last season and I think they’ll get it in their home opener, although this matchup is looking like a classic field goal pairing to me!

Pick: Cowboys 23 Giants 21

Saints at Vikings (-3)

It’s a damn shame that Adrian Peterson is going to get shut down by his former team in NFL Week 1, but that’s exactly what’s going to happen! Minnesota wins and narrowly covers.

Pick: Vikings 24 Saints 21

Chargers at Broncos (-4)

I love Philip Rivers just because of his moxie, but the Bolts are not going into mile High to beat Von Miller and company! The Broncos win a nail-biter!

Pick: Broncos 24 Chargers 23
