NFL Week 1 Predictions (2009)

Here were Gambling911.com's NFL Week 1 predictions for the start of the 2009 season.

New England Patriots -

New England has won the last 11 games in this series.  Over the last five games, the Patriots have won by more than the current 10 ½ point spread

One of the scarier stats facing the Patriots, however, is that they are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite of 10.5 or greater.

We simply cannot ignore the disparity between these two teams and the past positive outcomes for New England in this series.

With Buffalo firing its Offensive Coordinator during the preseason and Terrell Owens missing much of that period due to an injury, it's difficult to imagine the chemistry will be able to evolve fast enough in the hostile territory of New England. 

The best line on this game was found at Sportsbetting.com Here.

New York Jets -

Important New York Jets vs. Houston Texans odds trends to consider:

The Jets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog.

The Jets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Texans are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Texans won 5 of their last 6 games in 2008 and come into the 2009 season on a high note.  The New York Jets fell apart at the end of last season but come into 2009 with a much improved defense.

Houston could be a good team in 2009.  Our 2009 NFL Power Rankings have the Texans ranked at #15 based on the consensus odds to win the 2010 Super Bowl of online sportsbooks.

NFL.com makes it abundantly clear what to watch in this game:

Part of the reason for New York's collapse at the end of last season was its defense. The Jets gave up over 24 points a game in losing four of their last five contests. Enter new coach Rex Ryan. He brings in a proven attacking system from Baltimore, but it will be challenged against the Texans' explosive offense.

The oft injured Houston quarterback Matt Schaub may or may not play with his injured ankle, but this will probably affect this game regardless.  Rex Grossman starts if Schaub is out. 

Gambling911.com likes the Jets at +4 ½ odds.  Following our posting of this Week 1 NFL prediction, Sportsbetting.com began offering the Jets at +5 odds.

Gambling911.com also likes the Colts at -6 ½ versus the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Redkins at +7.
