Pick
6 NYG (-107) @ pinnacle

The set-up: Pittsburgh finished 8-8 last year after QB Ben Roethlisberger went down with injury in the second game. The Steelers have Big Ben back, but I think Pittsburgh still has many issues to address and resolve before I feel too comfortable in laying a large spread on the road, especially on Opening night. Granted, the Giants have more questions than answers as well, but I still think the pieces are in place for the home side to keep this one competitive.

The pick: These teams averaged similar amount of points last year, but the Giants were a train-wreck defensively. New York picked up a few key pieces for the unit this year and I think it has a big opportunity here facing what should be a very "rusty" Roethlisberger. I like the dynamic offensive combination of QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquaon Barkley to at the very least, keep this one close enough for the home side to comfortably sneak in through the back door down the stretch.

This is a 10* ATS BLOOD-BATH on the New York Giants.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
