Week 1 Betting Picks & Tips
Football fans are chomping at the bit for something to do with their Sundays again and with that silly preseason out of the way we can actually get down to business. While some teams look to have it easy in Week 1 like the Patriots in Buffalo, others such as the Green Bay Packers taking on the winners of the honorable mention award at last year’s Super Bowl aren’t as fortunate. This game should give us an idea of who we’ll see doing most of the bullying in the NFC division. Rex Ryan and his Jets look to put the past behind them with a new starting quarterback in Geno Smith; but with former CB Darrelle Revis on the other side of the field it may prove harder to get that first game momentum going against Tampa Bay than the Jets think.
It will be no picnic for the Giants either when they fly to Texas to take on the Cowboys Sunday night; but with WR Victor Cruz likely to get the green light for play morale in New York is high. With head coach Sean Payton coming off his season long suspension Saints fan will fill the Dome in New Orleans to welcome him back. Despite the fact that Drew Brees is the top ranked quarterback going into this season, the Saints will play the role of the underdogs taking on Matt Ryan’s Falcons. Ryan had a phenomenal season in 2012 and with Atlanta having one of the more favorable schedules in the league this year he looks likely to do it again.
Philadelphia welcomes the Redskins for an intriguing matchup between the half-injured Robert Griffin (I refuse to call him by his robot name) and half-retired Michael Vick. Vick showed a good bit of promise after filling in for and eventually taking the job of Kevin Colb, but since has shown little production and many mistakes on the field.
