Best NFL predictions of week 1
One of the best NFL predictions of Week 1 recommended by the model: the 49ers (-8.5) cover the spread against the Lions. The 49ers have been one of the best road teams in the NFL, winning seven of their eight regular season road games to become NFC Champions two seasons ago and claiming five of their six overall road wins of the year. last.
Meanwhile, the Lions won only once at home last season and Dan Campbell was tasked with another tough rebuild. The Lions finished 20th in scoring and total offense last season and replaced quarterback Matthew Stafford with Jared Goff. They also let wide receiver Kenny Golladay walk in free agency. It’s going to put a lot of pressure on a defense that came last in points and yards allowed a season ago.
The model expects a healthy attack from the 49ers to rack up over 450 yards of total attack. The line moved to San Francisco after opening at 7.5 points, but visitors still cover over 50% of SportsLine’s sims.
Another of the model’s Week 1 NFL top picks: The Panthers (-4) are the home favorites against the Jets. After being selected by the Jets with the No.3 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft and traded after just three seasons, Darnold will have an immediate chance for revenge with the Jets coming to visit him at his new home in Charlotte.
Darnold has appeared at ease during the preseason and is surrounded from afar by the most talented group of players he has ever had. Christian McCaffrey is in good health after missing 13 games a season ago and should take some relief from Darnold by fueling a solid running game while being arguably one of the game’s most valuable receivers. The model predicts McCaffrey will rack up over 130 yards of total offense to help the Panthers cover well over 50% of the sims.
