I’m not in love with any games this week; the first week is notoriously crazy and anything can happen. But here are the three I like best.
Rams -4 vs. Colts
- The Colts are abysmal without Luck. This is a perfect game for Jared Goff and Sean McVay to start their career together with some momentum.
Ravens +3 @ Cinci
- The Ravens’ D line should demolish the Bengals’ offensive line. They’re also historically a good road team and are the better coached team. I think they win outright.
Bears +6.5 vs. Falcons
- The Falcons really struggled against the run last season, and that’s going to be the Bears’ strength in 2017. Plus, there’s a ton of pressure on Atlanta after that Super Bowl loss. I think this could be a sneaky game that Atlanta ultimately wins, but by 6 or less.
