Written by on May 4, 2016

The National Football League will be here before you know it! It’s never too early to predict Week 1 of the league. There are some fantastic games on tap for the first week. Let’s take a look at the Week 1 NFL betting lines Predictions.

2016 Pro Football Season Week 1 Odds Predictions

Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos

Wow – what a week 1 this is going to be. A rematch of the Super Bowl from a season ago. Of course, the Carolina Panthers were the favorites to win that game, and Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset with his second Super Bowl title. The Broncos have lost Manning, and now have a quarterback issue. Will it be Mark Sanchez, or will the rookie Paxton Lynch get a chance to start? For Carolina, they still have a loaded crew, but the loss of Josh Norman will certainly hurt their defense. Can Cam Newton repeat his unbelievable success of a season ago? Will he stay healthy? Those are both two massive questions that many have about the Carolina Panthers. The opening game has got to go to the home team, right? The Denver Broncos defense will once again flex their muscle in this game. The NFL Week 1 Prediction for this game is the Denver Broncos +1 over the Carolina Panthers.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins have the tough task of taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener. The Redskins still have Kirk Cousins behind center, and are still a postseason team from a season ago. How will the Redskins continue to win, with just average defensive play. Can Kirk Cousins be as tough as he was a season ago? The Redskins let Robert Griffin III walk, was that a wise idea? For the Steelers, the offense is going to be ready to go in Week 1. The Steelers just want their top three guys to be healthy. Obviously, they want them ready for this Week 1 affair, but more important in Week 17 when the postseason gets ready to begin. Antonio Brown has emerged as the best wide receiver in all of the league. Look for him to have a monster game to show off his skills in a new season. Pittsburgh is way too strong in this game, despite being on the road. The bet for Week 1 of the National Football League is the Pittsburgh Steelers -3 over the Washington Redskins.There you go! There is a pair of National Football League Week 1 Predictions. Keep your eyes on the league, and we will let you know if there is any change in betting line, or reason to make a change in prediction.
