    Posts wont be this long I just wanted to give insight on each team for people


    Each week I will update this thread with the teams I pick. You do not need to use these picks. Nor will they always be 100% accurate. Although I am giving insight to users who may not keep up with the NFL as much but are still interested in Sportsbook. My knowledge comes from watching the games as well as keeping up with Bleacherreport, NFl, Espn and so on.

    I will be starting with week 2 as week 1 has gone by. Although I will post each winner in week 1 so you can analyse the games and who won/lost

    Week 1:

    Patriots vs Steelers: Patriots win 28-21 allowing the Steelers to Score in the last 2 seconds of the game with the Win already secured

    Colts vs Bills:
    Bills win 27-14 And completely dominated the Colts as Tyrod Taylor exposed many holes in the Colts Defense as well as the Bills Defense performing exceptionally well as usual

    Panthers vs Jaguars: Panthers win 20-9, Panthers performed very well against the well talked about Jaguars. Many people believed the Jaguars Tj Yeldon would break out but the Panthers held him form that

    Chiefs vs Texans: Chiefs win 27-20 In what looked like they were going to blowout the Texans as the Chiefs only gave up 9 points in the first half. As well as their Receiver Travis Kelce blowing past the Texans defense. Although Chiefs did allow the Texans to comeback in the fourth quarter as the Texans scored 11 Points and kept the Chiefs to 0 in the 3rd and 4th quarter

    Rams vs Seahawks: Rams win 34-31 in a major upset of the NFC Champs. The Rams have been hunting for a winning season for awhile and the many mistakes from the Seahawks may have started them on their path to become this years participants in the SuperBowl

    Saints vs Cardinals: Cardinals win 31-19 in what started out as a well balanced game. The Cardinals were an elite team last year until the lose of their Quarterback who is back and seems to be back as he routed the Saints with 2 touchdowns in the 4th quarter to win 31-19

    Bengals vs Raiders: Bengals win 33-13 holding the Raiders to 0 points until the final quarter of the game. The Bengals may be coming back up in the AFC this year as they played very well against the Raiders a team projected to be fairly good this season. Although don't count them out yet as they are still young and trying to get going. Seemingly they could win it all when they have the effective time as a team

    Giants vs Cowboys: Cowboys win 27-26 in what seems to be a thrown game by Eli Manning and the head coach as they were on the path to win this game. Both teams played exceptionally well and I would watch out for both in the coming weeks

    Jets vs Browns: Jets win 31-10 It seemed as though Johnny Manziel might get something going in the second quarter but seemingly enough he couldn't keep up with the Jets and lost. Although the Browns have a lot of young players and Manziel has not been in the league long, I would keep an eye on the Browns as they could upset many people coming forward

    Packers vs Bears: Packers win 31-23 in a close matchup, The Bears kept up with the Packers for most of the game until the 4th quarter. Both of theses teams are going to be great each week. Packers were on top of the NFC for quite some time last year. They did lose star receiver Jordy Nelson but James Jones picked up some of that lose and they should be on top again this year

    Redskins vs Dolphins: Dolphins win 17-10 which comes as a surprise they had a very good offence and defense last year and made great pick ups during the offseason. This could possibly be the year that we see the Redskins win some games

    Chargers vs Lions: Chargers win 33-28 this matchup was close throughout most of the game. Back and fourth scoring except in the 3rd quarter where the Chargers held the Lions to 0 points and seemingly took the game from there. Both teams have the potential to come out on top this year

    Ravens vs Broncos: Broncos win 19-13, The Ravens started off slow but picked up in the second quarter if they can start their momentum earlier they would have taken this game. Both teams played well although Manning wasn't quite on point as the last few years. Keep an eye on the Broncos, The Ravens may be in trouble after losing key defensive player Suggs though.

    Titans vs Bucs: Titans win 42-14 in what seemed to be a battle of rookie quarterbacks. Mariota looked amazing on field but we should wait and see what happens in the further games as the Bucs haven't been an elite team for awhile

    Vikings vs 49ers: 49ers win 20-3 in a blowout win over the Vikings holding them to just 3 points. The Vikings were looking rough against the 49ers but this comes with a lack of defense and a variety of chances on offense. 49ers looked really good spite the issues that happened losing their receiver and coaching staff. But they have started strong and you should look for that to continue

    Falcons vs Eagles: Falcons win 26-24 over the Eagles. It was very close game, Eagles were up and then the Falcons took the lead it was back and fourth the whole game and both team had plenty of offseason changes. Both are going to do very well moving forward

    Week 2 picks -

    Chiefs vs Broncos: My pick for this game is the Chiefs because they came out very strong and have been a great team through out the past few years despite lack of scoring touchdowns but they have seemed to settle that issue this year. The Broncos QB seems to be getting rusty and it seems that Manning will rely on his defense this year.

    Patriots vs Bills: I am sorry but I may not pick against my team. Although I think betting on either team could go either way. It is going to be a great great game and I will be in front of my telly watching. Obviously my pick is the Bills but I am skeptical so pick who you would like as both teams look strong and are coming out with Fire

    Texans vs Panthers: My pick is the Panthers. Their defense played well last week and this week they are playing a team who can't seem to settle who their starting QB will be. Although if they can get a consistent QB they may win this matchup with a strong receiver corp and some great defensive players

    Chargers vs Bengals: My pick is the Chargers they have the better offense and defense coming into this matchup from what I saw last week. The Bengals have some great receivers but may lack on defense when they face the Chargers

    Bucs vs Saints: My pick is the Saints for this match up as the Saints have an elite QB and Jameis Winston didn't seem to start off very strong against the Titans. Although any team could really take this match up I wasn't impressed with either team.

    49ers vs Steelers: My pick is the 49ers as they are starting quite strong and the Steelers are still without several of their key players such as star running back and receivers. The 49ers seem to be the best choice in the match up just due to how well they played in the opener

    Ravens vs Raiders: My pick is the Ravens as the Raiders were quite a let down week 1 when they were supposed to come out and be great. Although Ravens lost a key defensive player last week and that may affect how they move forward as well as the Raiders being real young

    Cowboys vs Eagles: My pick here is the Eagles as the Cowboys lost star receiver and it isn't looking good for them in a matchup where the Cowboys air attack is what was going to win the game for them

    Titans vs Browns: Titans have this match up they were very strong starting out and this is their year to win. The Browns are still kinda rough in the QB area

    Cardinals vs Bears: The Cardinals will take this game, they have Carson Palmer back and looked back to their undefeated selfs that started last season and the Bears just haven't been able to get going as well as they lost Brandon Marshall

    Lions vs Vikings: Lions will take this match up, The Vikings want to win but don't really have the weapons needed to do so as they haven't got the experience together

    Falcons vs Giants: Giants will take this game but both teams have a very strong chance and strong core offense. Giants should have beat the Cowboys and I expect them to come back strong this week

    Rams vs Redskins: Rams will take this match up as the Redskins just don't seem to be in it this year and the Rams started of their season with an amazing win over the Seahawks

    Dolphins vs Jaguars: Dolphins will take this as the Jaguars were not very impressive week 1 and I am not quite sure they can keep up with the Dolphins and their defense

    Packers vs Seahawks: Packers take this match up even though they lost Jordy Nelson, James Jones filled his role very well. The Seahawks struggled against the Rams and the Packers Defense is just as good as their offense

    Jets vs Colts: Jets will take this match up as their secondary is very strong and the Colts seemed to struggle against the Bills secondary last week. Although watch out because the Jets offense may not be able to score many points on the Colts

    As I hate (yes, I hate it) watching any physical sports, now I can finally have something more to go on when betting rather than just guessing. Thank you for this.

    This could be fun :D Here are my personal predictions for these games:

    Chiefs vs Broncos: Broncos. Manning will bounce back and throw 2-3 TD's Broncos 24-21

    Patriots vs Bills: With how well the Bills have come together I am hesitant to go against them, but the patriots are just too good of a team coming out of the gate to say they'll lose. Patriots 31-28

    Texans vs Panthers: Mallet comes out strong, Texans win, but I don't see that happening. Panthers 17-10

    Chargers vs Bengals: This one is a close one between two good teams. But, Bengals are the better team. Bengals 28-24

    Bucs vs Saints: Bucs aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Saints 21-3

    49ers vs Steelers: I don't like the steelers. 49'ers 99-0 (actually probably more like 17-14)

    Ravens vs Raiders: lol Raiders. Ravens 28-7

    Cowboys vs Eagles: Murray breaks out against the cowboys but boys' will find a way to win. Cowboys 20-17

    Titans vs Browns: I'm a Browns fan so... Browns 21-17

    Cardinals vs Bears: Cardinals are too good at winning early in the year. Cardinals 24-10

    Lions vs Vikings: Peterson bounces back, and wins it for them. 31-21

    Falcons vs Giants: mixed on this one, but I like to think the slightly better team will lose, so... Falcons 24-14

    Rams vs Redskins: Redskins are just not a pretty team. Rams 24-3

    Dolphins vs Jaguars: lol Jags. Dolphins 24-3

    Packers vs Seahawks: Game of the week tbh. Packers 37-34

    Jets vs Colts: Luck takes command and Colts win. Jets played good against a young, not very good Cleveland Offense. Colts are much better. Colts 24-14

    Week 2 wins:

    Broncos Defeat the Chiefs in a "comeback" (more like dumb mistakes from the chiefs)

    Patriots defeat the Bills in a 40-32 win
