NFL Confidence Pool Picks Week 1
The NFL season is finally here. That means every week I will provide you with my favorite to least favorite games according to how confident I am in the outcome. Remember, all picks will be straight up. There will be no point spread involved. I look forward to giving you the best chance to win your NFL Confidence pool each week and throughout the entirety of the 2020-21 season.
As the years have gone on, Confidence Pools have become very popular. If you’re unfamiliar with confidence pools, here's a rundown of the concept. Each week you will pick every game and the team you believe will win that game straight up. This takes out spreads so you can just focus on the winner of the game. No more losing on the spread. Just pick the winner and defeat your entire pool with your knowledge that you gain from this article.
Week 1 Confidence List (Most Confidence to Least Confidence)
Cleveland @ Baltimore: The Browns are not good. The Ravens are very good. The Browns defense won’t stop the Ravens. They couldn’t stop anyone last year. And that offense of the Browns is way overhyped. I’m confident in this. Take the Ravens.
Miami @ New England: The Patriots are about a touchdown favorite to beat the Dolphins. It really should be more. The Patriots had the best defense last season, while the Dolphins had the worst. Take the Patriots.
Atlanta @ Seattle: Let’s give the respect that Russell Wilson deserves. The Falcons seem to always come out flat early in seasons. The Seahawks made additions on the defensive end and have a very reliable offense. Take the Seahawks.
Houston @ Kansas City: It’s hard to know how good this offense of the Chiefs is going to be. They’ll throw it around against a very bad secondary of the Texans. I’m here for it. Take the Chiefs.
New York Jets @ Buffalo: The Bills had a top defense last season and added Stefon Diggs to improve their defense. What did the Jets do? I’m still thinking. Take the Bills.
Jacksonville @ Indianapolis: I’m not sure Philip Rivers is the answer for the Colts, but he’ll be the answer against the Jaguars. Not sold on anything that Jaguars have done this season. The offense will be shaky. Take the Colts.
New York Giants @ Pittsburgh: Ben Roethlisberger is back. That’s huge news. Last season shows just how valuable he was to this team. The offense should take strides this season, and the defense was very good last season. Good luck, Giants. Take the Steelers.
Washington @ Philadelphia: Are you scared of the Football Team? The Eagles shouldn’t be. Carson Wentz is healthy, and Miles Sanders broke out. The Football Team is young and intriguing but not yet ready. Take the Eagles.
Chicago @ Detroit: People love to fade Mitch Trubisky. I do, too. The Lions defense wasn’t good last season, but that’s why the Lions drafted Jeff Okoudah with their first pick of the draft. Improvement indeed. Take the Lions.
Green Bay @ Minnesota: The Packers with a healthy Aaron Rodgers can do plenty of damage. If they’re down early, a comeback is probable. Never count out Rodgers. Take the Packers.
Carolina @ Las Vegas: Am I the only one high on the Panthers? Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t know how to lose. Same with his coaching staff. The Panthers have the better roster and better team compared to the Raiders. Take the Panthers.
Denver @ Tennessee: How can you bet against the Titans after last season? The Titans have some mojo in them. The offense has so much potential. And while Drew Lock looks special, it’s more thanks to his defense for winning games for him. Take the Titans.
Arizona @ San Francisco: The Cardinals could have a premier offense. But that defense can ruin everything. The 49ers were sneaky good on the offensive side of the ball, and we know what their defense is capable of. Not on the hype train, but a little less confident. Take the 49ers.
Cincinnati @ Los Angeles Chargers: Joe Burrow gets his first start with the Bengals. I don’t know what to expect but also don’t know what to expect from Tyrod Taylor. It would be fun watching Burrow get a win here. Take the Bengals.
Los Angeles Rams @ Dallas: If we get the Rams of old, this is the Cowboys game. If we get the Cowboys of old, this is the Rams’ game. The Cowboys have potential with a new coach. I like their chances. Take the Cowboys.
Tampa Bay @ New Orleans: There will be a lot of bets on this game. It’s better to find other places to bet. This game could go either way. Saints have dominated the Bucs, but now things can be different with Tom Brady quarterbacking the Buccaneers. I just think there’s too much hype. Take the Saints.
