Colts Betting Favorites in Buffalo vs Bills

High expectations will follow the Indianapolis Colts to Buffalo as they open the season away from home against the Bills and try to cover the spread for the fourth time in five games. The exception for the Colts during that stretch was a 45-7 road loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game as 7-point road underdogs.

Indianapolis is the 3/1 favorite to win the AFC over the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots, and the opener could go a long way to showing how good this team can be this season.

With the addition of a pair of veteran offensive weapons in running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Andre Johnson, the Colts have given quarterback Andrew Luck exactly what he needs to get to the big game.

But Buffalo has one of the best defenses in the NFL, and new head coach Rex Ryan will be motivated to try to shut down Indy's offense in his first game there, as the team goes for its sixth cover in seven games dating back to last year.

Buffalo battles the Indianapolis Colts, currently with a 13-6 mark (12-6-1 ATS). The over under records, important for totals betting, are 3-13 for the Bills and 9-10 for the Colts.

NFL Week 1 Expert Betting Odds Picks

IK Enemkpali did the Jets a favor when he broke Geno Smith's jaw. That forced the Jets to name Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback. It's a factor why I like the Jets to cover three points against the Browns.

Fitzpatrick and Cleveland quarterback Josh McCown are journeymen. Each, though, has proven functional when equipped with weapons. The Jets have much better skill position players than Cleveland with Chris Ivory, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Nover: Regular Season Win Total Picks

If you don't mind tying up your bankroll for five months, wagering NFL over/under regular season win totals can prove profitable. These three I like. Lines courtesy of Bovada.

Tennessee Titans Over 5 1/2 wins

The Titans struggled through three quarterbacks in going 2-14 last year.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt now has a potential franchise quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Dick LeBeau brings credibility to the defensive coaching staff.

Only one team in NFL history has gone 0-16 in the regular season, and only one team has gone 16-0.

NFL: Is the Super Bowl Hangover Real?

Does losing the big game stick with a team all the way through to the next season?

Since Super Bowl XXXIV the team that lost the Super Bowl has bombed in Week 1, winning just five of 15 games and bleeding losses to the tune of 2-13 ATS.

Check out the chart below.

Super Bowl winners have gone 13-2 straight up and 9-5-1 against the spread in the first week of action the next season - though recent spread trends are not as strong for the reigning champs, with a 2-4 ATS record in the past six seasons.

AFC East Odds: Nobody Close to Pats

The New England Patriots have won the AFC East division title in 12 of the past 14 seasons, which includes claiming the mantle in the past six consecutive seasons.

So it should be a surprise to nobody that the Patriots are currently a -195 favorite to win the AFC East once again this season at 5Dimes, while the field is listed at +170.

Patriots Trying to Extend an ATS Streak

The New England Patriots will have Tom Brady under center as they try to cover the spread for the third straight time dating back to last year's Super Bowl run when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL season opener on Thursday.

The defending champion Patriots will have reigning Super Bowl MVP Brady in uniform after he won his appeal to remove a four-game suspension issued by the league for his role in the Deflategate scandal.

New England has enjoyed a lot of success in this series with a 9-3 record against the number in the past 12 meetings with the Steelers, who will be without running back Le'Veon Bell after he was suspended for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

With Bell out, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be counted on even more to help his team cover for the fifth time in six games overall, coming off a career year that saw him throw for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Supporters of the Pittsburgh Steelers have seen them go 11-6 and 9-8 ATS so far this season, while the New England Patriots are at 15-4 and 11-8 ATS. In totals betting, the Patriots are 11-8, while the Steelers are 9-7-1.

NFL Daily Fantasy, Best Football Picks

Calvin Johnson is the biggest name in fantasy football for wide receivers, but he probably shouldn’t be your top choice in fantasy or DFS for Week 1.

While Draft Kings, Yahoo, FanDuel and the other major DFS sites are ranking their players and setting salaries, sportsbooks are weighing in with their opinions. And putting their money where their mouth is when they say Antonio Brown will get more fantasy points than Calvin Johnson in Week 1.
