NFL Free Picks and Predictions: September 11-13

It’s been a strange year. But sports is back and the football season is about to get underway, which is one step closer to normality.

We’ll review the odds from all the top-tier sportsbook providers and ensure that our readers go into matchday 1 with a clear idea of what is likely to happen. So, without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty.

Minnesota Vikings (1.71) vs Green Bay Packers (2.20)

Both of these teams had a disappointing postseason at the end of the 2019/20 campaign. But that’s in the past and now we’re looking forward.

The Vikings have invested in their lineup, dropping a number of last seasons’ starters and looking to bring some freshness to the setup. While this could be good, it also means they’ll start this one with a whole new outfit.

The Packers made it all the way to the NFC title game last season but missed out in the end. They picked up Jordan Love in The Draft and will expect to do something on Day 1.

Having said all that, it’s the Vikings that look the stronger team here and the NFL betting odds tend to agree with us.

Take the Vikings to win.

New Orleans Saints (2.65) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.54)

The biggest news going into this one is the fact Tom Brady has left the Patriots and is now orchestrating things for the Buccaneers.

It’s difficult to predict whether he’ll be the difference that takes them to win the Superbowl. But what we do know is that Tampa now has a three-time MVP calibre player in their ranks.

Expect more of the same from the Saints. A solid team with a great roster in both offences a defence. Top-rated NFL betting sites have the Buccaneers as clear favourites and we can see them getting the win on matchday one.

Expect a win for the Buccaneers.

Baltimore Ravens (1.28) vs Cleveland Browns (4.00)

The Ravens go into the NFL season the favourites for the AFC North and are the clear favourites in the oddsmakers’ eyes for their opening game against Cleveland.

The Browns are still trying to piece a working model for the team under first-year coach Kevin Stefanski. While it’s his first year, they have a decent team and could do something in the league this year.

The Ravens are going to be as dangerous as ever on offence, but the Browns aren’t exactly lacking in that department. But which team is going to turn up defensively?

The Ravens have had trouble with the Browns recently, but we still think they’re got enough to win this one.

Pick the Ravens to win.
