2021 NFL Week 1

  • When: Thursday, Sep. 9 – Monday, Sep. 13

In their season opener, the Super Bowl winner is 8-3 SU and 6-3-2 ATS in the past 11 years. The line has fallen from Tampa Bay -8 to Tampa -7.5. Unless you’re a believer in Dallas, lean towards backing Terrific Tom and his mates.

Players are lining up to back the Jags. Why not? Jacksonville is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 September games. Houston is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in September.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Buffalo Bills -6.5

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

There are conflicting trends in this one. Both teams rock it in September. The Bills are 5-2 ATS in their last 7. Pittsburgh is 4-1 ATS in their last 5. Handicap further before backing either. 

New York Jets at Carolina Panthers -5
