After months of wondering, wishing, and hoping for the NFL to even happen this season, it’s finally here. I’m sure many of us reflected in the past few months and realized how much sports, especially football, means to us.
Well, to celebrate never taking football for granted again, what better way to completely dive into this season than to take part in the SBR Pick 6 Football contest. The best part is…it’s free and a $50,000 prize will be rewarded in the end.
The SBR Pick 6 contest has you pick 6 football picks each week. It’ll have you getting out of your comfort or safe zone and rooting for teams you wouldn’t ever dare to. It’s great for beginners and experts.
Follow along with me this season as I enter my first SBR contest, Go PRO, and test my own knowledge in capping for the next 16 weeks. With the most unusual offseason we have ever seen in NFL history and no preseason, we’ll see right out the gate what teams took quarantine as a serious time to prepare.
I hope you’ll join the fun! Happy NFL betting, ya’ll and may the odds be in your favor.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns
Thursday, September 17 – 8:20 PM EDT at FirstEnergy Stadium
The Bengals will head to the Browns after losing week one to the LA Chargers. Cincinnati’s most notable rookie and No. 1 overall draft pick Joe Burrow had his first career start and with one running touchdown. However he still has yet to throw a TD pass. The Brown offense and defense wasn’t much better after getting stomped 6-38 by the Ravens in Week 1.
I expect Myles Garrett and the Browns defensive front to get pressure against Joe Burrow and a weak offensive line. With the Browns offensive woes and the inability of both teams to consistently make kicks in week 1, I’m taking the under in this battle.

LA Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday, September 20 –1:00 PM EDT at Lincoln Financial
Philly is coming off of a tough loss to The Washington Football Team. They’ll be at home this weekend, but with no fans in the stands home field advantage isn’t a huge factor anymore.
Also, the level of difficulty facing the Los Angeles Rams is a lot higher than it was in Washington. I was happy with Ron Rivera and his first week with his new team especially after everything he’s been through this season.
Anyway, Carson Wentz managed to get sacked a total of eight times last week. What are they going to do when Aaron Donald comes to town?
LA will cover the -1 1/2 spread at -105 with the NFL Odds.
The Washington Football Team vs. Arizona Cardinals
Sunday, September 20 –4:20 PM EDT at State Farm Stadium
I’ll give it to the Cardinals and Kliff Kingsbury for humbling out defending NFC champs. And like I said above, I love the Washington comeback win against the Eagles, except now they’ll be on the road coming off of a hangover win and into a time zone change.
Washington will have to stop the second-best, if not the best, receiver in the league DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins had a career high of 14 catches for 151 yards against the 49er’s. Meanwhile QB1 Kyler Murray led the rushing attack with 91 yards.
Washington will make it interesting, that’s for sure, but not interesting enough. Cardinals will cover the spread at their home opener.

New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks
Sunday, September 20 8:20 PM EDT at CenturyLink Financial
Pete Carroll and the Seattle has an impressive record of 40-15 at home since 2013. They’ll take on the Patriots, who aren’t Super Bowl worthy just yet.
Russell Wilson looked incredibly graceful against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He went 4 for 4 on touchdown passes. He’s on the move for that life-time contract and he just might get it this season.
I don’t think the Patriots have enough consistency to keep up with the Seahawks. Bill Belichick will run Cam Newton into the ground and they’ll have to rely on their defense to keep it a close game again.
Seattle covers the -3 spread at -105.
Free NFL Pick: Seattle Seahawks -3 (-105) at Heritage
New Orleans Saints vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Monday, September 21 8:15 PM EDT at Allegiant Stadium
Drew Brees is still an NFL stud muffin at the age of 41-years-old. He also has an extremely reliable offense to work with in Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. The downfall here is Thomas’ ankle sprain, but he should be ready to roll come Sunday.
The Saints took on Tom Brady last week and rocked his world upside down. Welcome to the NFC South TB.
The Raiders were decent last week against Carolina and Derek Carr was fortunate enough to not see any stars, but that’ll change this week against the Saints and Cam Jordan. New Orleans crashes the Raiders’ home opener and wins by a TD with a spread of -6 at -105.

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins
Sunday, September 20 –1:00 PM EDT at Hard Rock Stadium
Josh Allen looked very good in Week 1 against the Jets. He managed to revamp the Bill’s passing and run game—a healthy balance. The Bill’s defense even looked good and the secondary may have looked even better.
Miami on the other hand couldn’t score to save their lives. I’m curious to see if they’ll play Tua Tagovailoa at all. I mean, he can’t be any worse than Ryan Fitzpatrick was in his Week 1 debut.
Buffalo will be (0-2) after this week.
Free NFL Pick: Buffalo Bills -5 1/2 (-105) at Heritage
