It’s the start of a new NFL season! Fans may think they have an idea of how their favorite teams should perform, but until the players get on the field and play regular season games it’s difficult to tell exactly how the season will progress. Every team is 0-0 and hope springs eternal throughout almost every fan base.
Week 1 of the NFL season can also be make or break those placing wagers on the games. Lines will be difficult due to no preseason games, so the most attractive bet may not be the safest one.
For the 2021 NFL season, the same “Super 6” of BTSC staff who participated last year, as well as the addition of a couple blokes, will be picking every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. We are keeping up with the changes we made last year and including the Thursday games. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a group of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.
We are using the same program as last year called Tallysight It allows us to show picks in a much more “friendly to the eye” manner. To understand how it works, the default tab is for our picks against the spread. To see the over/under picks, click the “O/U” tab in the upper left. Also, make sure you scroll on the graphic to see all the picks.
So here are the picks for the games for Week 1 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
