Well, friend, Jaye's gonna give you a little week 1 help and some angles to consider.
Check out this list of the Top 10 teams ATS on NFL week 1 over the last ten seasons:
Cowboys - A perfect place for America's team as year in and out the NFL schedule makers place the Boys in a prime week one matchup. And for those of you who only bet Dallas, they have delivered, having covered greater than a 55 % rate in these opening day contests.
9. Green Bay
Packers - In the Aaron Rodgers era the Packers have been one of NFL’s winningest teams. Week 1 appears to be one of their favorite stages as Pack is 6 - 4 ATS.
Lions - Combining a high octane passing game and a solid defensive unit has allowed this team to be very competitive. Lions have been covering the NFL week 1 spread at a rate that exceeds 55%.
3 NFC west titles; 4 playoff appearances, one classic Super Bowl battle and the 7th best record ATS week 1 are just few things on the Cardinals' resume.
Titans - Despite 5 seasons out of the last 10 they’ve played under .500 ball. Week 1 is one of their most consistent performances of season. Their cover rate is better than 65%.
Broncos - over the last six seasons 5 playoffs and 2 Super Bowl appearances. It is no surprise they are 6-3-1 week one for a 67% cover rate.
4. San Francisco
49ers - A top tier team over most of the last ten years with 3 NFC conference title games and one Super Bowl appearance the Niners cover the spread opening day 68% of the time.
Eagles - Last season Super Bowl win was no fluke. As from start to finish the Eagles are a solid ATS performer and particularly week 1. Over last ten seasons Philly covers spread over 68% on opening day.
Bills - Yes, you're absolutely correct if you said last year's playoff appearance was their first since 1999. However, over the last ten they have the second best ATS week one performer.
Ravens - With six playoffs appearance and a Super Bowl win over the last ten years the Ravens are one of the elite teams that gets forgotten. Clearly week one is when you want to know where and who this is playing as they are over 70% ATS.
