Lit Picks Week 1

Updated: Nov 7, 2019

it’s been awhile, which is my bad. Let’s get to more content with some NFL Picks. 🎶 “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” 🎶

(For the lines I’ll be using Draftkings Sports Book)

1 PM Games

Atlanta Falcons at Minnesota Vikings

I like the Vikings defense and running game with Dalvin Cook returning strong.

Score: Vikings 24, Falcons 17

Spread Pick: Vikings -3.5

Take the Vikings with the money line: -186


Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins

This is one of those weird Week 1 games that seem like an easy conclusion but it’s not as clear cut as it seems. The Dolphins are in rebuilding mode against a playoff team last season, but they are at home.

Score: Ravens 20, Dolphins 17

Take the Dolphins +7


Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

I like the home team in this one.


Jets 17, Bills 14

Spread Pick: Jets -2.5

Take the Jets with the money line: -148


Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars

I see Leonard Fournette having a big day.


Jaguars 28, Chiefs 24

Spread Pick: Jaguars + 3.5

Take the Jaguars outright with the money line: +170


Los Angeles Rams at Carolina Panthers

I see a “Super Bowl Hangover” for the Rams on the east coast in Carolina.


Panthers 27, Rams 20

Spread Pick: Panthers +1.5

Take the Panthers outright with the money line: +106


Tennessee Titans at Cleveland Browns.

I pick the new look Browns roll against the Titans.


Browns 31, Titans 17

Spread Pick: Browns -5.5

Take the Browns with the money line: -245


Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

Big day from Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery as the Birds get by the Skins in a tough divisional matchup.


Eagles 38, Redskins 28

Spread Pick: Redskins +10.5

Take the Eagles with the money line: -500


4 PM Games


Cincinnati Bengals at Seattle Seahawks

This should be an easy win for Seattle at Qwest against an AJ Green less Bengals.


Seahawks 38, Bengals 10

Spread Pick: Seahawks -9.5

Take the Seahawks laying the 9.5


Indianapolis Colts at Los Angeles Chargers

Will Jacoby Brissett lead the Colts on a road win to open the season? I don’t think so.


Chargers 31, Colts 17

Spread Pick: Chargers -6

Take the Chargers laying the 6


Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals

Though Arizona is home - and I’m not too confident about the Lions - I’m not too crazy about a rookie QB making his first start with such a suspect offensive line.


Lions 24, Cardinals 21

Spread Pick: Lions - 2.5

Take the Lions on the money line -141


New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

Zeke just signed his mega deal. I expect the Boys to take this one in a tightly contested divisional contest.


Cowboys 28, Giants 24

Spread Pick: Giants + 7

Take the Giants getting the 7


San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jimmy G. is back but I like Bruce Arians making his return to lead Famous Jamies and the Bucs to a home win.


Buccaneers 27. 49ers 17

Spread Pick: Buccaneers -1

Take the Buccaneers laying the point


Sunday Night Game


Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

The Pats are the Pats


Patriots 31, Steelers 21

Spread Pick: Patriots -5

Take the Patriots with the money line -265


Monday Night Games


Houston Texans at New Orleans Saints

I think the new look Texans might take some time to get rolling.


Saints 33, Texans 24

Spread Pick: Saints -7.5

Take the Saints on the money line at -455


Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

I think that the world is expecting the Raiders to implode. Not this week.


Raiders 20, Broncos 17

Spread Pick: Raiders +3

Take the Raiders getting the 3 points
