Bets We Like for Week 1

As we get closer to the start of the regular season we’ll be posting a lot of free picks content for the best games. For now, here’s where we’re seeing early value:

Chargers @ Raiders: The Chargers are notorious for inexplicable slow starts, and this game is on Oakland soil. With Carson Palmer starting the season and explosive RB Darren McFadden healthy, the Raiders offense should be able to keep up with the Chargers. Time of possession could be the key in this one, and if the Raiders running game can keep Philip Rivers off the field, that could be the difference.

Playing at home on Monday Night Football, the Raiders will be looking to set the tone for the 2012 – 2013 season, and I expect the silver & black to take it outright. The Raiders are slight dogs right now, at +1.5 (-105). I love this bet, giving us a win on a 1 point Raiders loss at home. They’re +110 on the money line, but I prefer the points on this one since we’re only paying -105.

The Chargers vs. Raiders over/under is 47.5 (-110) right now. I tend to like the under on this one, but need to see more of the starters before making an official prediction.

Steelers @ Broncos: No doubt Peyton Manning makes the Broncos better this year, but how long will it take for the Broncos offense to find their rhythm? The Pittsburgh Steelers offense won’t be experimenting, and their #1 defense from last year could cause the Broncos offense a lot of problems. Right now we can get the Steelers +1 (-110) on the point spread, or -105 on the money line. Expecting a Steelers outright win I’m not looking for a push, so I’m taking the money line and saving the nickel.
