NFL Week 1 Best Bets

Publish Date: September 11, 2021
Fact checked by: Alyx Tzamantanis

We did it everyone! Congratulate yourself because we finally made it to week one of the 2021 NFL season. For our patience we even got awarded a 17th game this year, how nice is that? One more week to bet on, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Below we’ve compiled our favorite bets from the Week 1 slate of NFL games. All odds are from the DraftKings Sportsbook.

Spreads

nfl-week-1

The Chargers will likely struggle to move the ball against a dominant WFT defense

Washington Football Team -1.5 vs. LA Chargers

The hype train has surrounded Justin Herbert and the LA Chargers all offseason, but don’t forget this about the Bolts, their defense is bad. This is a team that allowed 21 points to the

Chiefs 2nd stringers last year and 28 points to the listless Jets in 2020.

Herbert is going to be a great QB this season, but he has shown struggles against good defenses. He was shut out last year in a 45-0 thrashing by the Patriots and only put up 19 points when they faced the Broncos.

The Washington Football Team has a top five defense and a great pass rush. You know what else they have this year? An experienced quarterback who’s been known to get off to hot starts in Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Take WFT to win this one at home by more than two points.

Cleveland Browns +5.5 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are good, but people forget just how good the Browns have gotten. The spreads have always been large for KC over the past season and they’ve struggled to cover going 2-9 over the last 11 games played in 2020/21.

The Browns will give KC a game just like they did in last year’s playoffs when they eventually lost 22-17.

Props

Kyler-Murray

Kyler Murray will continue to be one of the best dual threat QBs

Allen Robinson Over 5.5 Receptions +105

This one is a slam dunk. The Bears will surely be down to the likes of Matt Stafford and the Lions and will be forced to throw the ball in the second half of this contest. With an inaccurate Mitch Trubisky under center last year, Robinson caught at least six passes on 10 different occasions. On average he was targeted over nine times a game.

This year he will start with Andy Dalton throwing him the ball so I suspect more of those targets will end up in Robinson’s hands. Six passes should be cake for the #1 receiver on a Bears offense that improved from last year.

Kyler Murray Over 41.5 Rush Yards -120

Kyler has shown the ability to cover this total in two or three good scrambles. The Tennessee Titans have struggled against highly mobile QB’s and this season should be no different. Murray is one of the best running QB’s in the game right now and averaged over 51 rush yards a game last season

The Titans had to square off against Lamar Jackson twice last year. In the first game he rushed for 51 yards. In the second he torched them for 136. I haven’t seen enough improvement or change in the Titans defense to think this season will be any different.
