Five Favorite Bets NFL Week 1

Welcome back to our Five Favorite Bets For Week 1 of the 2021 season!

Joe Burrow and Jamar Chase
(Sam Greene)

Arizona Cardinals at Tennessee Titans (-3) (Over/Under 52)

This game is going to be one of the more fun matchups of the week! I see this being a high-scoring affair, and I love the over of 52 game total here. Both offenses have prolific quarterbacks and weapons all over the field. Both defenses struggled a lot back in 2020 as well. I don’t think either team made enough improvements on defense to slow down a high-powered offense. This game will be back and forth, and I predict several big touchdowns.

Pick: Over 52


Philadelphia Eagles at Atlanta Falcons (-3.5) (Over/Under 48)

This matchup is another game that I believe will be very high-scoring, and it almost seems too good to be true. Both defenses have many holes, and the Atlanta offense, although without Julio Jones, still has some firepower. Look for big days from rookies Kyle Pitts and Devonta Smith.

Pick: Over 48


Green Bay Packers (-4) at New Orleans Saints (Over/Under 50)

Due to the damage caused by Hurricane IDA, this game is hosted in Jacksonville, although it’s technically a home game for the Saints. Gone is Drew Brees and Jamies Winston is now under center as the Saints quarterback. I think the Saints are outmatched here, big time, and the fact that they are playing in Jacksonville doesn’t help. The Packers had a lot of drama this off-season, but Aaron Rodgers will start what could be his final season in Green Bay with a big win.

Pick: Packers -4


Minnesota Vikings (-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (Over/Under 48)

Joe Burrow had an impressive rookie campaign before tearing his ACL last year. As a result, the Bengals invested in their offensive line and drafted Burrows college teammate WR Ja’marr chase. I think this game will be a high-scoring affair. Minnesota’s defense was awful last year and still has a lot of holes. The Bengals offense has a lot of weapons to attack those vulnerabilities. I like the over, but give me the Bengals to cover, maybe even win it outright. 

Pick: Over 48 ( Bonus Pick Bengals +3)


San Francisco 49ers (-7.5) at Detroit Lions (Over/Under 45.5)

The Lions are the other team that will be battling the Texans all season long for the first pick in the draft. The 49ers were ravaged by injuries all season and are finally healthy. Although they are on the road, I think they will blow the doors off the Lions. This game will be the biggest blowout of the weekend.

Pick: 49ers -7.5 

Best of luck to everyone this week, and thank you for reading our Five Favorite Bets For Week 1!
