It´s finally time for the NFL to kick off again as the season starts today with a match between the reigning champions New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium. This is a match-up between two teams with their strength in the offensive game. New England was the 4th best in scoring points last year, and Pittsburgh was seventh best. Patriots scored on average 29.2 points per game and the Steelers just over 27. Both teams have great quarterbacks (Brady and Roethlisburger), a handful of good receivers and pretty solid running game. I think we’ll see a lot of points scored in this premiere, mostly because both teams are better on “O” than “D”. If we play with the idea that the Patriots make a TD in every quarter and perhaps two field goals, they would score 34 points. Pittsburgh has enough offensive forces to put at least 20 on the board. Over 49.5 total points feels as a solid bet. 1.71 at Pinnacle Sports is the best odds today on my pick.
