Against the Spread Pick

Two teams will have a chance to bounce back from embarrassing losses here on Monday Night Football as the New York Jets host the Cleveland Browns. The Browns received a ton of hype all offseason, and promptly got smoked by 30 points in their opener against the Titans. The Jets on the other hand blew a 16-0 lead in humiliating fashion to the Bills. For a few reasons, I think it’ll be the Browns who bounce back here. Their game against Tennessee was actually pretty close until a few late meaningless touchdowns ran up the score. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was severely hindered by Tennessee’s pass-rush, and the Jets don’t have the ability to get after passers like the Titans do. Mayfield should be much more comfortable here, and the Jets’ defense is banged up with injuries to two key players in Quinnen Williams and C.J. Mosley. Sam Darnold averaged a pitiful 4.3 yards per attempt in Week 1, and I expect him to struggle again here. Lay the points. UPDATE: Since this preview was originally written, it’s been announced that Darnold won’t be playing due to mono. Our pick of record remains Browns -2.5 made before the Darnold news, but today the Browns are still a value at -6.5. Trevor Siemian will now start for the Jets, and it’s a massive downgrade. He’ll get eaten alive by this Browns defensive line, and the team will roll over pretty quickly without their leader under center.

Over Under Pick

The under also has some value. Both of these teams have new head coaches and offensive systems, and the quarterbacks clearly aren’t used to their respective schemes yet. Both Darnold and Mayfield looked awful in Week 1, and they aren’t going to be completely comfortable in their new systems after just one additional week. Both teams have offensive line issues, and the Browns’ defensive line trio of Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, and Olivier Vernon should feast here. All the Browns’ exciting new weapons on offense have inflated the perception of their unit, and caused this total to be opened too high. Mayfield is also dealing with a nagging hand injury that could impact his grip. UPDATE: Oddsmakers still haven’t adjust this total enough with the Darnold news. Siemian is absolutely terrible, and with Mayfield banged up as well, this one will be a low-scoring snoozefest.

The Home Of Free NFL Expert Picks For The 2019/20 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 props 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 this is why it’s your turn 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 whether you’re talking about point spreads, over unders, parlay tickets, player props, daily fantasy sports, or even scoreboard squares. Some bettors like to specialize in a single particular type of NFL picks while others like to diversify and wager as many ways as they can on a game. Both types of players can be successful 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 actually 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. A fun stat noting is that the team who covers the spread wins the game outright around 80% of the time.

NFL Over / Under Free NFL Predictions

When you aren’t 100% confident which team is going to win in an NFL game, another exciting way to still get action on the event 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 events to see whether they push the total over or under. Our NFL predictions include a pick on the over under market for every game in the NFL.

Money Line NFL Predictions

Ask any seasoned NFL bettor and they’ll tell you that ATS betting is exciting, but can also be frustrating. Your research has 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.

Teaser NFL Picks and NFL Parlays

One of the ways to avoid the frustration of losing an against the spread bet by a point or two is with teaser NFL picks. For example in a 2-team teaser you get 6 points placed in your direction (-7 spread becomes -1) for both games. The caveat being that both teams must cover for your ticket to be graded a winner and the odds are similar to a single game bet. Conversely in a parlay, you still wager on two teams but with the original spread and with better payout odds (usually 3:1). Teasers and parlays can be played with 2,3,4,5 teams or more.

Week to Week Regular Season NFL Expert Picks

Some sites focus only on the marquee games of an NFL slate but our system features expert picks for each and every game of the NFL season. The best way to have success in NFL betting is by finding those under-the-radar games like Tennessee vs. Tampa Bay that do not draw as much public betting interest as Dallas vs. Green Bay. Our week to week NFL predictions are the best ways to get a breakdown and a reading of all the games on an NFL slate.

NFL Playoff Predictions

Throughout the NFL season we also give you other betting options such as our futures picks and individual player props. We not only predict every game of the NFL regular season, but the playoffs as well. There’s a lot of money to be made in the relatively short NFL league year – why not make the most of it?
