$Line Introduction, Week 1 Picks

Welcome to the $Line for the NFL! Check out our Week 1 Picks below. Image via NBC Sports.

Isn’t it crazy to think that NFL Football is back again? It feels like so long ago that we watched the Chiefs defeat the 49ers in the Super Bowl, and the craziness of 2020 has made this period of waiting feel like an eternity. Well, football fans, get ready for a fantastic and interesting season, as this will surely be one of the weirdest seasons in NFL history.

Welcome to The $Line. Every week, Joe Eckstein – @JoeEckstein_ on Twitter – and I will give our moneyline, spread, and over/under predictions for every NFL game for the week. We will keep a running tally all-season long, and you will be able to see our progress both week-by-week and across the whole season.

Without further ado, here are our week one picks!

*Just for reference, the team listed first is the home team. A negative (-) sign means that team is favored to win in the game, whereas a positive (+) sign means the team is the underdog. All betting information is taken from ESPN prior to the Thursday Night Football game. All the text that is not in bold for spreads and over/under is the starting line for our predictions. Our actual predictions are in bold next to or below the starting line.

# = Betting information here was taken from CBS Sports because it was not available at the time from ESPN.
