The Kansas City Chiefs visit the Buffalo Bills with both teams looking to bounce back after suffering their first losses of the season last week. The Chiefs were bested 40-32 at home by the Raiders, while the Bills were dealt a crushing 42-16 defeat at the hands of the Titans. It will be interesting to see how each franchise responds, but you’ve got to go with Kansas City. Andy Reid’s team may have had its issues but it is still the clear Super Bowl favorite and last week was the first time this season it had allowed more than 20 points. If the Chiefs’ defense bounces back then it’s tough to see Buffalo containing Patrick Mahomes, whom I expect to come out swinging from that defeat. The Bills defense has dropped off markedly this year, and they have conceded the fifth-most points in the AFC so far. Three of their five games have seen opponents put up at least 28 points, and none of them boasted an offense as hot as the Chiefs’. On top of that, Kansas City has had two extra days to prepare for this one with the Bills just playing on Tuesday. Take the Chiefs.

Game Totals Pick

While it’s a very high line, I think you have to roll with the over in this matchup. As mentioned, the Bills have been giving up a ton of points this season and that is unlikely to change against this juggernaut offense. The Chiefs still put up 32 points last week with Mahomes throwing for 340 yards and a couple of touchdowns, so it’s not like they’ve been flat on that side of the ball. Meanwhile, Josh Allen struggled in that Tennessee defeat, but I wouldn’t expect him to change his game-plan. After all, Buffalo still has the second-most passing yards and second-most touchdowns in the league. Allen has played the same style of football since he was drafted by the Bills, so why change now? I think this has all the hallmarks of a shootout and should serve as a great appetizer for the Cardinals-Cowboys game that follows. Back the over.

Money Line Pick

The Andy Dalton era in Dallas will officially kick off as the Cowboys host the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football. Dalton is certainly a downgrade from Dak Prescott, but I think oddsmakers have adjusted a bit too much and as a result I’m playing Dallas on the money line. In their first game without their starting quarterback in primetime on national TV, I think we see the Cowboys rally around Dalton and come out with their best effort. Dalton isn’t your average backup quarterback; he’s a three-time Pro Bowler. It’s about as good of a situation as you could ask for, and with Ezekiel Elliott, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Michael Gallup at his disposal, he’s got a ton of weapons. That’s a better group of weapons than he ever had in Cincinnati, and he also now has a way better offensive line than he did with the Bengals. The Cardinals might be 3-2, but that record is phony. Their victories have come against the Jets, Washington, and a very banged-up 49ers squad–teams with a combined record of 3-12.

I also like the over a bit in this spot. As I mentioned above, I really don’t think this Cowboys offense is going to fall off too much with Dalton given all the talent at the skill positions they have. Their defense, on the other hand is a liability; Dallas is seemingly destined to play in shootouts every game. They’ve now given up at least 37 points in four straight games and the secondary looks lost on a weekly basis. Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray have to be licking their chops for this matchup, and DeAndre Hopkins should have a big game. Arizona’s defense has struggled, as well, and when the Cardinals last faced a competent offense two weeks ago they gave up 31 points to the Panthers. This one should have a lot of big plays and fireworks.

Washington Football Team New York Giants
WAS Football Team Win +3.0, Point Spread
WAS Football Team @ NY Giants

Pick Reasoning

NFC East action here as the Washington Football Team travels to take on the New York Giants. Despite being 1-4 and 0-5 respectively, both teams are still in the hunt for first place, which tells you everything you need to know about the division. Washington at least has a real strength in their defensive front, while the Giants are virtually all weaknesses. Daniel Jones has regressed from his first year, and he wasn’t much good as a rookie anyway. With Montez Sweat, Chase Young, Jonathan Allen, and Daron Payne bearing down on him, I think he’ll struggle mightily. Kyle Allen will start at quarterback for Washington, and he was actually doing a decent job moving the ball against the Rams last week before he got hurt. It looks like Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff may return from injury for this one, and that would be a massive boost for Washington’s offense. The Giants have given up at least 36 points in two of their past three games, so I think Terry McLaurin and Antonio Gibson will both have some success here. Take Washington.

Miami Dolphins New York Jets
NY Jets Win +9.5, Point Spread
NY Jets @ MIA Dolphins

Pick Reasoning

The Miami Dolphins will host the flailing New York Jets here in an AFC East battle. It won’t feel great, but you’ve got to take New York on this wildly inflated line. In the NFL it’s usually a good idea to buy-low and sell-high, and this is the perfect example. Public perception of the Jets is at an all-time low while the Dolphins are riding high off a huge win over the 49ers, causing oddsmakers to overreact. The Dolphins shouldn’t be favorites of more than a touchdown against anybody. One win over an extraordinarily banged up and lifeless San Francisco team doesn’t change that. Ryan Fitzpatrick seems to always follow up his great games with a dud, and that’s what I’m expecting here. The Jets got rid of the locker room headache that was Le’Veon Bell, and their chemistry should be a bit better here as a result. Despite what you’ve heard the Jets aren’t going to quit, as every player on the field knows they have to put good things on tape. They’re also starting to finally get a lot healthier, as it looks like receiver Breshad Perriman will make his return in this one. They don’t want to get embarrassed by their division rivals, and they aren’t going to get blown out here. We also have one of our best NFL prop bets for Week 6 in this matchup.

The Home Of Free Expert NFL Picks For The 2020/21 Season

Even though there are just 17 weeks in the regular season with a maximum of 16 games per week, NFL betting is easily the most popular North American sports wager. NFL point spreads and season win total prop bets are one of the few in the major sports that are openly discussed by announcers and fans alike. Because of betting, and the popularity of fantasy football, every single game of the NFL season is important, widely discussed, analyzed, and a great opportunity to get in on the action with our free NFL expert picks.

Free NFL Picks Explained

There’s almost an infinite way to bet on the NFL, from NFL picks against the spread, over unders, parlays, prop bets, daily fantasy sports, or even scoreboard squares, there is a wager type for every kind of football fan. Some bettors like to specialize in a single particular type of NFL pick, while others like to be diverse and wager as many ways as they can on a game. Both types of players can be successful with a disciplined and calculated strategy which is the great thing about NFL betting.

Free NFL Picks Against the Spread

The most popular way to bet on the NFL is against the spread (ATS). With these wagers, you are not picking a simple winner or loser of a game. Instead, ATS betting is placing your money that Team A wins by a certain amount of points (Philadelphia -7 for example) or that Team B will keep the game closer than oddsmakers expect (Chicago +3.5). The great thing about ATS NFL betting is that the team you wager on can lose outright, but your bet can still be a winner (a Chicago 17-20 loss). Our NFL picks against the spread are our most popular bet on site, and the game lines are widely discussed by sport shows and experts in the lead up to matches. A fun stat worth noting is that the team who covers the spread wins the game outright around 80% of the time.

NFL Over / Under Free NFL Picks

When you aren’t 100% confident in which team is going to win in an NFL game, or would rather wager on the game, rather than a team, another exciting way to still get in on the action is with totals wagers. In these bets you don’t take a side, but whether the two teams will combine to score over or under the total number of points that the oddsmakers have set. This is why last-second field goals in 24 point blowouts are still edge-of-your-seat moments as they can push the total over or under the set line. We preview every game of the NFL season, providing expert insight into the game alongside NFL picks which will always include a pick on the over/under market in each game of the NFL season.

Money Line NFL Picks

Ask any seasoned NFL bettor and they’ll tell you that ATS betting is exciting, but can also be frustrating. It is important to keep in mind that NFL teams are only looking to win by one, of course, they’d love to win by more, but they’ll change their schemes late on to secure a win, not to ensure they cover the spread.

Your research could have given you the right side, but if they win by 6 instead of 7 your -6.5 bet is a loss. Therefore a lot of wagerers enjoy money line (ML) NFL expert picks. The best way to describe ML bets is that you simply wager on either a winner or loser with no spread involved. If you’re confident in an underdog, ML bets are also a great way to increase your profits. If a team is +10 ATS, for example, they may be upwards of +350 on the money line to win outright meaning a $100 bet would pay you $350.

NFL Schedule 2020/21

Unlike other sports that have had their seasons widely disrupted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, With the NFL season not due to start until August 2020, it is not yet known the implications the recent events will have on the 2020 NFL schedule.

As things stand, the NFL season is expected to start on the 10th September with the Super Bowl Champions, Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans at Arrowhead Stadium.

The NFL regular season schedule is expected to run as normal, with 17 game weeks through until January 3rd, 2021, with the Wild Card round of the playoffs scheduled for the weekend after, across the 9th and 10th January 2021.

Super Bowl LV is scheduled for February 7th, at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
