That sweet taste of autumn brings with it another NFL season, which means it’s time to start making predictions, we bring you all off that in our Week 1 Picks podcast.
Week 1 is always a bag of snakes, because we never really how these new teams will face off, plus loads of rookies are now going to face real men for the first time and this can skew a game real fast.
With that in mind Wade Ryan make their predictions for week 1 in our latest podcast. Have a listen, and make sure you share with your friends and foes alike. Some of our picks might be so bad (Ryan’s), that you can get payback.
Actually, looking at last season Ryan Cull came out with a respectable 48.8% against the spread. Not bad considering his season before.
Wade McElwain had a better season with an average of 55.4%, a far cry from his 63% season in 2019.
Of course, this year is completely different, and so are the teams. Except of course the Bucs, they’re better, but different.
Steelers (0-0) vs Bills (0-0) -6.5 +48
Ryan is saying Bills, Bills, Bills, & he is ripping to go. Josh Allen will be on fire, the whole wide receiver corps will spread the love, and screw the running back, who needs one.
It’s hard not to like Buffalo at home in this one, as the tables and end zone looks to be smashed in this AFC big boys game.
Ryan likes Buffalo to win big at home, stealing a win from the Steelers.
Wade too is bullish on the blue boys at home, knowing that blue collar love and two years worth of foldable table frustrated fans awaits the Pittsburgh black and gold when they take the field.
It will be interesting to see if Harris is worth the hype, and if he can gash that tough Bills D in his first NFL game.
The Steelers had an easy start last season, but not this one.
Bills 20 Steelers 20
Bills 33 Steelers 24
Cardinals(0-0) vs Titans(0-0) -3 +52.5
The hype is here and it’s backed by a Watt as Kyler Murray and the Cardinals look to fly in the land of the giants.
Ryan Tannehill is locked and loaded with a new set of trusty in hands in JJ as the Titans hope to squash the pest birds and their scooty QB.
Ryan (our Ryan) thinks that the other Ryan is under rated, and picks him to have a hell of a game. He also is rooting for the legs of Derek Henry to gash the weak parts of the Arizona D all day.
Ryan also hates Cliff Kinsbury and everything he touches and hopes the Cardinals lose big.
Wade on the other hand is big and the birds, and the fantasy points in this game alone. Pairing Hopkins with Murray with a sniff of AJ Green is bound to get you points in a contest.
Adding to that is a weak Tennessee back field that will struggle more in this shooting contest of a game.
Birds for the upset.
Titans 27 Cardinals 23
Cardinals 35 Titans 30
Eagles (0-0) Falcons (0-0) -3 +48.5
More birds in this 6pm (UK) game in a very important starting match for both teams.
The Eagles have a lot to prove this year, after a bunch of speedsters on receiver, and plugging some holes in their D will help them not lose as many games as they did last year.
It’s Jalen’s team now. He can run and pass, but can he complete?
Atlanta has another Ryan that has been struggling as of late, but his name is Matt.
Like door-Matt, because the lack of offensive line protecting him has made the past few years tough.
Their D was very bad, and there hasn’t been much effort to really fix the back end of that.
Plus there were the salty comebacks, more than you can find on Pornhub.
Ryan believes in Ryan and has the home field Falcons swooping down on the inept Hurts to begin the season with a wicked ass win.
Wade on the other hand is rooting for an upset, calling for the Eagles to put an impressive first game together to net the Falcons and their weak secondary.
Philly likes to bust out a big one in days of olde, and it feels like Jalen Hurts is going to have a nutter of a great Sunday.
Falcons 27 Eagles 20
Eagles 31 Falcons 28
