A Quick Look at all the BEST Week 1 – 2011 NFL Gambling matchups!

New Orleans vs. Green Bay
NFL Week 1 Lines: Green Bay -5
Over/Under: 46.5
Thurs, Sept. 8

A Lambeau match-up pitting the last two Super Bowl winners against each other is a perfect way to start the 2011 season. Two of the league’s best pivots squaring off? Drew Brees’ third-ranked passing game contending with the reigning Super Bowl champions and their excellent secondary. Will Brees throw a bundle of interceptions like he did at times last year? Mikey likes it.

NFL Week 1 Gambling

Minnesota vs. San Diego
NFL Week 1 Lines: San Diego -9.5
Over/Under: 41
Sun, Sept. 11

San Diego signal-caller Philip Rivers spreads the ball around to everyone in his offense; the visiting Vikes better be ready to fly all around the field if they want a chance. Quarterback Joe Webb is/was a try-hard option, but it’s entirely possible that rookie QB Christian Ponder will start for Minnesota in the opener. A little scary, perhaps?

Buffalo vs. Kansas City
NFL Week 1 Lines: K.C. -6.5
Over/Under: 42
Sun, Sept. 11

For the Bills to be a factor week in, week out, they need to capitalize on timely turnovers. If Buffalo’s secondary can make Chiefs’ QB Matt Cassel pay for mistakes, maybe the Bills just grab this opening road game. Ready to be surprised which team led the league in rushing last season? It was KC, with the potent duo of explosive Jamaal Charles and savvy vet Thomas Jones. Look out, Bills.

Cincinnati vs. Cleveland
NFL Week 1 Lines: Cleveland -3
Over/Under: 38
Sun, Sept. 11

The two NFL representatives from Ohio are both fairly miserable, but they hate each other – so it should translate into an entertaining opening week game. Bengals RB Cedric Benson – who was crucial to the gameplan in past seasons – and the entire Cincy running game screeched to a halt in 2010, which isn’t a good sign for success in the AFC North.

Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore
NFL Week 1 Lines: Baltimore -3
Over/Under: 37
Sun, Sept. 11

For the Steelers, the first week of the 2011 regular season gets started in spectacular fashion. Both these teams were 12-4 in the division last year and both sport great running backs and great run defense. Looks like we’ll see if QB Joe Flacco is ready to be Ben Roethlisberger-like right off the hop of the 2011 campaign. What – or who – will flinch first? Downright tantalizing! [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Dallas vs. New York – Sunday Night Football
NFL Week 1 Lines: NYJ -4
Over/Under: 41
Sun, Sept. 11

The first Sunday night game of the year. That electric Cowboys RB Felix Jones only had one TD last season is criminal. Some say that Jones has lost quickness, but Dallas must do a better job of getting him into space. Tony Romo and the Dallas offense have a lot to prove after last season, but if any team can stifle these aims, it’s the Jets and their stingy defense.

Oakland vs. Denver – Monday Night Football
NFL Week 1 Lines: Denver -1
Over/Under: 41.5
Mon, Sept. 12

Double header Monday. This old-school rivalry fills the slate on Monday night for the 2011 season’s opening weekend. The Broncos had a productive passing game last year, but that was under the purview of QB Kyle Orton – not current starter Tim Tebow.

New England vs. Miami – Monday Night Football
NFL Week 1 Lines: New England -4.5
Over/Under: 45
Mon, Sept. 12

Double header Monday. Long-time New England hero Tom Brady and his Top 10-calibre offense plan on starting things out right in south Florida in the season’s first Monday nighter. Miami’s stout defense must live up to its billing if the Dolphins want to start 2011 with a victory.
