  • The Steelers have proved as of late to have an offense to be reckoned with, Ben Roethlisberger lead the league last season with an average of 328 yards per game and WR Brown had an astounding 375 receptions and had 31 touchdown catches within the past 3 years. While the Redskins finished out last season on a high note, amassing 4 straight wins, we feel the line on this game is off and will gladly bet on the Steelers to get the win.

  • Tom Brady will not be starting for the Patriots tonight for the first time in 15 years as he is serving a four game suspension for his alleged involvement in “deflategate”. Palmer performed well last season, creating new franchise records for TD’s and total yards. His receiving corps will all be available this evening which should help to produce a solid offense attack against the Patriots, resulting in a Cardinals win.

Betting Pick: Arizona Cardinals -9.5

Week 1 NFL Pick: Jack Jones betting the Bears +6 over the Texans on September 11th 2016

TEXANS VS. BEARS BETTINGHouston Texans vs. Chicago Bears
NFL Betting Prediction: Bears +6 (September 11th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR JACK JONES’ EXPERT NFL PICKS

I believe the Chicago Bears are a strong value play in Week 1 as 6-point underdogs to the Houston Texans on the road. While I’m not huge on the Bears this season, I do think they will keep this one more competitive than the oddsmakers and betting public.

Chicago went on a solid 8-5 ATS run over its final 13 games last year. It did go just 6-10 straight up, but seven of those losses were by a touchdown or less. That means the Bears were in 13 of the 16 games they played with a chance to win late in the 4th quarter.

John Fox had this team headed in the right direction. There’s no question the Bears were better than their record in his first season last year. That’s evident by the fact that they finished almost dead even in yardage differential, averaging 344.6 yards per game on offense and giving up a respectable 345.4 yards per game on defense.

Houston was a solid 9-7 team last season, but it is being over-hyped coming into 2016. Most believe the Texans will run away with the AFC South, but I’m not buying it. They got to beat up on bad Colts, Jaguars and Titans teams last year, but now all three of those teams will be improved and I could make a case for all three to win the division. I’m not sold on Brock Osweiler being the answer, either.

The Bears get a boost to their offense this season with a healthy return of WR Kevin White, who missed all of last season due to an injury. The 2015 first-round pick teams with Alshon Jeffery as one of the more underrated WR combos in the league. Plus, Jay Cutler had one of his best seasons yet last year even without White.

Fox always has a solid defense everywhere he goes, and he did a good job upgrading it this offseason after a solid year in which they gave up 345 yards per game. This defense should take another step forward in 2016.

Defensively for the Texans, JJ Watt is not 100 percent healthy heading in 2016 after having back surgery this offseason. The Bears are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games. They are consistently undervalued away from home and are again in Week 1. Bet the Bears Sunday.

Week 1 NFL Pick: Sam Martin betting the Bengals -2.5 points on September 11th 2016

Week 1 NFL Pick: Bengals -2.5 points (September 11th 2016)

5* Free Play on Cincinnati (-2.5). Not enough respect given to a Cincinnati team that won 12 games last year, and if not for an injury to QB Andy Dalton they could have made some noise in the playoffs. Dalton is back and this offense was under-appreciated last season. In fact, Cincy covered the spread in all eight of their road games. Jets will be an average team this year and can’t match the Bengals firepower on offense. Bengals defense isn’t that bad either, and with a few upgrades they should be better on that side of the ball than they were last year. With this low number we’re practically picking the outright winner, and even on the road Cincinnati has no problem getting past the Jets. 5* Free Play on Cincinnati.
