It is coming closer every day and you can feel it! NFL football is creeping up and I know the majority of you reading this cannot wait and have loaded your wagering accounts or have the money set aside.
Here at Sportsbookreview.com, we are also fired up and have broken down early games involving inter-divisional action, first starting in the NFC, which you can read here, and now in the AFC.
Both conferences this season have East vs. West and North vs. South showdowns and we have the breakdowns for possible NFL picks ready for you.
This will be the lid-lifter to the season and typically the Super Bowl champions when playing at home are tough out. When we looked into the NFL odds, we saw New England favored by eight points and that is deserved, coming of a marvelous 16-3 ATS season and being 13-3 ATS at home the last couple of years. However, at over a touchdown, Kansas City offers value after being division champs and posting a 6-2 SU and ATS road record. Draw your own conclusion.
In the second ‘Color Rush’ (monochromatic) Thursday game of the season, we have two AFC clubs with big aspirations. Houston is hoping QB Tom Savage can be the steady hand they need, since they have everything else to compete and Cincinnati is keeping fingers crossed the injury bug stays away in 2017. The Bengals are expected to be only two-point favorites, but I like them in this spot, looking to go a little old school Cincy-style and Guns and Roses, because this game will be played “in the jungle baby!”
