NFL Predictions 2014: Week 1 Picks

As you might have noticed I took a pass on the preseason this year. The NFLX has enough variance to it as is, but the flag-happy experimentation was too much for me to get involved.  Since it involves twice as much time to handicap due to the expanded rosters and coaching motivations, it was better off to focus on the regular season.

Week 1 is always the most interesting week for bettors since the lines have been out for months and most of the value has already been sucked out ... or has it? There is always under/overreaction to what takes place in the exhibition games and everyone has slightly different power rankings to start off.  The sharps will also be waiting to fade the bigger line moves leading up to gameday.


I'll be adding picks early next week as we inch closer to the official kickoff, so refresh for all the updates.
