From The GetSportsInfo Podcast:



Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:

Play It Safe: 49ers at DET
I normally avoid taking road teams in Week 1, but with so many of the bad teams facing each other this is what we are left with for the top game. The Lions will struggle to get within double digits of the 49ers in this one.

Out on a Limb: Rams vs. CHI
This game isn’t going much “out on the limb” as the Rams are one of the biggest favorites of the week. However, the Bears’ D is pretty solid and with it being the first week of the season and the first game ever with Matthew Stafford under center there are some questions surround the Rams’ offense.


You can get my complete “Against the Spread” plays to a separate article that will run each Saturday or Sunday morning this season. However, we will kick things off weekly here with my Thursday night betting recommendation. My starting Thursday night bankroll for the purposes of this article is $1000.

Starting Balance: $1000
Current Balance: $1000

The Pick:
$110 – Over 51.5

My money is on the over here. Both offenses are capable of putting points on the board. The Bucs D could win the battle with Dak Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense, but they will not be completely shut out with so many weapons. I look for this contest to get to the mid 50’s.
