49ers -1 (I may put the Raiders +12 in here rather than this)
BAL -6.5 (-125) – One of the only picks I feel very confident in going into the weekend. After watching Baltimore last week, they seem to be in their own league with KC in terms of the best teams in football. The Texans just don’t have the star power to keep up with a Baltimore team that got better since last year, and beat the Texans 41-7 in 2019. Though it is a home game for the Texans, there will be no fans, so the road game does not worry me for the Ravens here.
Parlay: PIT, BUF, SF (+151) – The Steelers have their home opener against a Denver team that is missing their best player and did not look too great at Home against TEN. Chubb was ineffective and that PIT defense should have a field day. BUF goes on the road in Miami in a game I see being close but they should be able to win as their roster and coaching is far superior. The 49ers play a junior varsity looking Jets team who will be missing their starting RB and two starting WR’s. It does not make logical sense for them to lose this one.
CAR +295 – Love the value here. The Bucs come into this one banged up with a lot of hype, poised for a letdown. Them being home is why they were given the huge spread. It should be a shootout, so I am fan of the over as well (47.5 -110). Brady has not been playing well at all in his last few games, and though the Panthers defense isn’t great I am looking for their offense to take some big time shots and make this one close
