The 49ers lost key players on offense during the offseason like Frank Gore, Mike Lupati and Anthony Davis among others that basically puts the team on rebuilding mode. It’s all up to QB Colin Kaepernick to make things work in the attack next season.

Check Current NLF Betting Odds

On defense San Francisco lost a lot of players as well: cornerbacks Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox, linebackers Patrick Willis and Chris Borland to retirement and defensive end Justin Smith. The team also released pass rusher Aldon Smith following an arrest on hit-and-run, driving under the influence and vandalism charges. Clearly new defensive coordinator Eric Mangini will a lot of work to do next season.

The Vikings will start the season with high hopes, having Adrian Peterson back in business along QB Teddy Bridgewater. Minnesota improved its passing offense by trading for wide receiver Mike Wallace during the offseason, who will try to make himself as one of the NFL’s most dangerous big-play threats once again.

The Vikings defense is also set to advance this year, even after the vast improvement that was made between the Vikings’ 2013 campaign under head coach Leslie Frazier and last season under Zimmer (who is a lauded defensive guru). After finishing 11th in points surrendered and 14th in total-yardage-against last season (32nd and 31st in 2013, respectively), the team has already showed itself to be much more solid on that side of the ball.

Prediction: The 49ers still have talent on both sides of the ball, but it will likely take a few games before that talent begins to gel under Tomsula. Mike Zimmer already used last year to get accustomed to the personnel he has, and there’s no doubt that he’ll have his team ready to go come Week 1. We like the Vikings to get the upset here.

Pick: Minnesota Vikings +1.5

Dallas Cowboys

The New York Giants will visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday September 13, 2015 for the start of the NFL season. Where to bet? Football betting lines are available at Bovada Sportsbook, where you can bet on this game and get a 50% free bet bonus with your deposit.

Dallas is favorite at home with a point spread of-5.5 along a total over under betting line of 49.5 points.

New York’s record against Dallas hasn´t been good in recent times, losing their last 4 meetings overall and their last 2 in Arlington, Texas. Eli Manning’s numbers were good in 2014, throwing for 4,410 yards and 30 touchdowns, an improvement from a more disappointing 2013. Manning should be more comfortable this upcoming season with Ben McAdoo’s West Coast type of offense. WR Odell Beckham Jr. could become a star player for Giants this 2015 along Victor Cruz who is healthy and ready for action.

Check Current NFL Betting Odds

New York’s troubles could start this with an injury plagued defense. Pierre-Paul suffered an injury due to a fireworks incident, joining Jameel McClain and safety Nat Berhe. The secondary suffered a setback with CB Prince Amukamara also out due to a groin issue.

2014 was a great year for the Cowboys and this upcoming season they bring a top offensive. Joseph Randle could be running the ball instead of DeMarco Murray. Dez Bryant will be Romo’s favorite target, in an offensive that should give a lot of headaches to rival defenses.

Dallas has made improvements in their defense, Sean Lee and Rolando McClain will be back and Greg Hardy is an important addition to the unit.

Prediction: New York will need to rely on their offense to stay in games and Dallas defense should be a little better than last season with players coming back plus some of the new additions. The issue is whether their defense can slow down this Cowboys offense at AT&T Stadium, which might prove to be too difficult. Dallas should have their way in this one.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals will visit the Oakland Raiders on Sunday September 13, 2015 for week 1 of the season. You can get NFL betting lines at Bovada Sportsbook, where you can bet on this game and get a 50% free bet bonus with your deposit.

Cincinnati is favorite on the road with a point spread of -3.5 points along a total over under line of 44 points.

Raiders have in theory a dangerous offensive that has been in rebuilding mode. Players like RB Latavius Murray could soon become a key element in Oakland’s offensive. QB Derek Carr has a lot of weapons at his disposal, like 4th overall pick WR Amari Cooper among other talented players in the wide receivers unit.

Check Current NFL Betting Lines

Oakland’s defense is bound for a better performance this upcoming season, mixing in young talent and experienced players. They certainly have room for improvement after producing only 22 sacks and allowing over 119 rushing yards per game. Raiders added free agents like DT Dan Williams from Arizona and LBs Malcolm Smith from the Seahawks and Curtis Lofton, these signings will make a good complement to Khalil Mack, Sio Moore and Mario Edwards Jr.

Bengals are one of the most solid teams in their division with a good running game, a top receiver along a strong defense. It’s up to QB Andy Dalton to take the ship to good port. RB Jeremy Hills had a great performance in 2014 with more than 1000 rushing yards as a rookie. The fact that A.J. Green is ready to play in his last contract year is another piece of good news for Cincinnati.

Last year was a rough time for a Bengals defense plagued with injuries. However this time around things are different and they could once again become the unit that had a total of 43 sacks. Now, second-year defensive coordinator Paul Guenther looks to have a fully-rehabbed Geno Atkins to go along with an eventually healthy Burfict.

Prediction: Both offenses have enough punch in paper to speculate the total points to go over 44 points, as defenses start the season adjusting.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday September 13, 2015 for week 1 of the season. You can get NFL betting lines at Bovada Sportsbook, where you can bet on this game and get a 50% free bet bonus with your deposit.

Tampa Bay is home favorite with a point spread of -3 along a total over under line of 42 points.

Tampa Bay will try to improve from being the worst teams in the NFL last season, coming this upcoming season with new franchise QB Jameis Winston with the first overall pick in the draft. Winston comes from winning the Heisman Trophy and throwing for 3,907 yards. The Bucs also hired former Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter who has 3 decades of experience in coaching, including jobs with the Falcons and Jaguars. The Bucs also feature more depth in the whole lineup this year.

Check Current NFL Odds

On defense Tampa Bay has some important figures, like three consecutive times Pro bowler Gerald McCoy, who is a sack specialist averaging 8.5 last season. Linebacker Lavonte David went to the Pro Bowl as a replacement, and had 146 tackles last year.

On the other side of the match, the Titans had one of the worst performances of the league last season. Something good came out of it, with Tennessee having the second overall pick in the 2015 Draft, and having QB Marcus Mariota from Oregon signed. Mariota played in a spread offense in college and is expected to make the transition to a pocket passer who also will have the liberty to use his mobility to make plays and whom the Titans have clearly indicated will start on week one at Tampa Bay.

Defensively Tennessee hired cornerback Perrish Cox and safety Da’Norris Searcy to big contracts in order to improve a secondary that gave up 28 passing touchdowns and only intercepted 12 passes in 2014. The Titans’ biggest defensive signing was linebacker Brian Orakpo who signed a four-year, $31 million deal in the offseason and is expected to be one of the starting linebackers in Tennessee’s 3-4 defense along with Derrick Morgan, Avery Williamson, and Wesley Woodyard. The Titans also drafted linebacker/defensive end Deiontrez Mount in the sixth round out of Louisville to provide even more athleticism and versatility to their defense.

Prediction: According to reports from both training camps, Mariota is doing better than Winston in their development, and in a close call game I’m taking the points.

San Diego is home favorite with a point spread of -2 along a total over under line of 45.5 points.

The Chargers enter the season with the new additions like RB Melvin Gordon from Wisconsin, making headlines during the 2015 Draft. Donald Brown and Branden Oliver will get their second season in San Diego, while Danny Woodhead is ready to return after recovering from injury. The offensive has a reinforced offensive with new players like tackles Joe Barksdale and Chris Hairston along Orlando Franklin and the return of King Dunlap.

Check Current NFL Odds

Defensive Coordinator John Pagano knows he will need to lead his defense to win in the red zone next season. They ranked last in the league after week 8, allowing rivals to score 78.9% of the times they went pass the 20.

The Lions need Matthew Stafford to become the same quarterback that threw 41 touchdown passes and 5,038 yards in 2011. Stafford passed for 4,257 and 22 TDs last season, despite having a lot of good targets at his disposal. This upcoming season the offensive will have running back Ameer Abdullah out of Nebraska to complement Joique Bell. The Lions could also use Calvin Johnson being healthy in 2015.

And of course one of the big issues on the Lions defense is de departure of Ndamukong Suh, George Johnson and Nick Fairley, however there’s talent on the unit that can get things done.

Prediction: San Diego has improved many areas in need and will have a better offensive unit which will allow them to balance the run/pass ratio more efficiently just where Phillip Rivers needs to be to become elite once again. It will be a tough task for Detroit to come in and beat them at their own ground. The Chargers should pull this one off at home.

Arizona is home favorite with a point spread of -3 along a total over under betting line of 47 points.

The Arizona Cardinals made a great decision hiring head coach Bruce Arians after the 2012 season, transforming this team into a playoff contender since his arrival. Carson Palmer has understood perfectly Arians idea for the offense, Palmer threw for 1626 yards with 11 touchdowns, playing in only 6 games last season due to an injury, and he won them all, he is now healthy and cleared to start next season. John Brown proved his worth in the NFL during his rookie season, we should return to an even better performance this season.

Check Current NFL Betting Odds

However, the Cards lost on defense with the departure of Todd Bowles as new head coach of the Jets. They also lost Darnell Dockett, releasing him after missing out the entire past season due to an ACL injury, along Dockett Dan Williams left to join the Raiders. Arizona could close those gaps with players like Calais Campbell, Frostee Rucker, Cory Redding, Corey Peters and Matt Shaughnessy there is no lack of experience or leadership.

The Saints have been playing the passing game on offense ever since Sean Payton started working with Drew Brees but things could take a turning point with the arrival of Max Unger and C.J. Spiller who will fill a Darren Sproles-type role catching screen passes and getting the ball out on the edges of the defense.

On the defense linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is with New Orleans now along defensive back P.J. Williams from Florida State. The team’s run defense should be better on the interior with Hicks, Williams, and Jenkins on the field.

Prediction: It’s not easy to make a call on this game, both teams have new defensive systems with new players needing to adjust, however both teams have talented offensives, this combination could produce many points.

Carolina are favorites as visitors with a point spread of -4, together with an over under betting line of41.5 points.

Bet on the NFL at Bovada – Get a 50% Welcome Bonus

The Panthers feature a good offense led by Cam Newton, however they will need to score more than the 21.2 points per game they had last season if they want to reach the postseason. Addressing this issue Carolina drafted Devin Funchess, Kelvin Benjamin, Jonathan Stewart and Greg Olsen. The Panthers defense has been regarded as one of the best in the league and it should remain that way next season. However their defense showed some inconsistencies last season, especially in the secondary. Veterans Chris Houston and Charles Tillman will bolster up the cornerbacks unit.

Check Current NFL Betting Lines

Jaguar’s QB Blake Bortles had a difficult rookie year in 2014 and needs to improve in 2015. However Bortles did not have the best support in the offensive. Jacksonville has more depth in the attack this season, together with a new offensive coordinator Greg Olson, will bring some breathing room for Bortles, who we expect to have a better season than 2014.

The Jags defense was ranked as one of the worst in the NFL last season, but was able to pull 45 sacks. However that’s about it, they ranked poorly in other areas, allowing 370.8 yards per game and intercepting only 6 passes the whole season.

Prediction: The Jags have lots of room for improvement, but they are getting there. We expect this to be a better season for Jaguars fans, in a season kickoff game at home, they could prove it.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has made sure to prove his worth in the NFL after throwing for 4045 yards last season, and things could be better for Tannehill this upcoming season. Miami brings new receivers like Jordan Cameron, Greg Jennings and Kenny Stills that together with Tannehill will bring a lot trouble to rival defenses. To add more power to the offensive the Dolphins drafted Louisville’s DeVante Parker.

Check Current NFL Betting Lines

Dolphins had bad run defense in the league last year, giving up 121 yards a game plus allowing 4.3 yards per rush attempt. However Ndamukong Suh is in the teams from the Lions and could help bolster Miami’s defensive.

This could be the season for Robert Griffin III to shine as he did in his rookie year, after passing for only 1694 yards and rushing for 176 last season, due injuries. RGIII is back and will have the help of offensive lineman Brandon Scherff, giving Griffin more space to breathe.

The Redskins defense performed poorly in 2014 and it’s up to new defensive coordinator Joe Barry to fix things, a task that could prove difficult taking into account the Washington’s defensive is one of the oldest in the NFL.

Prediction: The season opener could be tough for the Redskins, who bring in a new defensive play. It’s going to be hard for them to defend against Miami’s pass attack, something that Tannehill and company will bring to the game.

The Bills will enter the season with new head coach Rex Ryan along some interesting additions to an offensive that lacked power last season. They also hired Greg Roman as new offensive coordinator, who made a good job with the 49ers offensive.

LeSean McCoy comes in from the Eagles, together with TE Charles Clay and WR Percy Harvin however the most noticeable question mark in Buffalo’s offense comes at the QB position, with Matt Cassel, E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor competing for the starter position.

Buffalo’s defensive will remain one of the best in the league with most of the players returning for next season under Coach Rex Ryan.

Check Current NFL Betting Lines

Indianapolis features a lot of offseason changes with new additions to the offensive like WR Andre Johnson, Todd Herremans and RB Frank Gore, who will be new tools for Andrew Luck to drive the Colts offensive.

One of the Colts weak spots is their inability to stop a run defense; this certainly gave Indianapolis a lot of headaches. They tried to address this issue during the draft with the addition of DE Henry Anderson and DT David Parry, both from Stanford.

Prediction: Expect a tough match where Buffalo has to run the ball from the start, exploiting the Colts weakness mentioned earlier, and keeping Andrew Luck on the sideline. However with Indianapolis potent offensive a lot of points can be scored in a back and fourth game.

Cleveland finished last season last in the AFC North with an overall of 7-9 with an ATS record of 9-5-2. They bring in new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo going into next season. The former Jets QB coach will have to adapt to Mike Pettine’s defensive style of play. QB Johnny Manziel will most likely start under center, but this is not certain yet. They feel that six starting quarters is far too early to give up on him and they’ve been thrilled with the change in him since he spent 10 weeks in a treatment facility and moved to the suburbs. Rookie running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell both emerged as weapons in the running game last year and with the addition Miami’s all-time leading rusher Duke Johnson in the third round of the 2015 draft we can read that the Browns will rely heavily on the run.

The New York Jets already had one of the best defensive lines in the NFL in 2014, and with the addition of first-round pick Leonard Williams this could end up being and elite unit in 2015. GM Mike Maccagnan also targeted the cornerback position this spring, transforming a question mark to an area of strength. Both Darrelle Revis and Buster Skrine became Jets on March 14 and Antonio Cromartie reunited with Revis four days later. The Jets also added safety Marcus Gilchrist and bolstered their depth across the board. The Jets had an overall record of 4-12,along a record against the NFL spread of 6-9-1 last season.

Last Meeting

These teams last met on December 22, 2013 when the Jets at home defeated the Browns 24-13, covering the spread of -2.5, while the game went under the total odds of 37 points.
