Interested in where to bet on week 1 NFL matchups?
Thursday Night Football starts week 1 of the 2017 Vegas NFL betting season, the NFL schedule features the defending super bowl champion New England Patriots versus the Kansas City Chiefs, AFC West Divisional champions. We, the NFL betting public, also get the pleasure of watching two of the best coaches in Belichick and Reid face off in this anticipated week 1 NFL picks matchup.
The Patriots are playing without Julian Edelman, but Brandin Cooks acquired from New Orleans has been working hard with QB Tom Brady. Brady had praise for Cooks when he said “I’ve been so impressed with his professionalism. For a 23 year old, he has a maturity about him that, for our team and our offense, is so critical to our development.” Then there’s the return of Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, who is healthy after back surgery.
Kansas City on the other hand is capable of containing the passing game. In the 2016 season KC was #1 with 33 takeaways and the Pats gave up just 11.
