Pick
3.5 CIN (-108) @ Betamerica

The set-up: Tyrod Taylor starts as QB for the Chargers, while Joe Burrow will be under center for the Bengals. LA has issues with its offensive line, which doesn't look good for Taylor to start the season. The main back in LA is Austin Ekeler, who had 557 yards and three TD's last season. The Chargers' defense was its strength last year, but I think it'll have its hands full with this Bengals' offense which has something to prove in Week 1.

The pick: AJ Green is back and ready to put on a show after an injury plagued 2019. RB Joe Mixon had 1,137 yards and five TD's last year. The defense finished ninth overall last year as well. Finally note that the Bengals are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven Week 1 contests, while the Chargers are a disappointing 1-5 ATS in their last six when playing the role of favorite. While the outright win isn't out of the question, I'll recommend to grab as many points as you can!

10* GAME OF THE MONTH on the Cinncinnati Bengals.

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.
