  • BlackJack Fletcher is going BIG to start the NFL season with his seven-team Week 1 parlay that has a 15-1 payout.
  • He's backing a few teams with playoff potential, including the Tennessee Titans on the road in Miami.

It’s finally here. The NFL season kicks off Thursday night, and we are ready to start this baby with a bang.

There are lots of games out there, and there’s lots to love across the board. So why not start this season with a seven-team moneyline parlay, and really fatten up that bankroll?

Let’s take a shot and see if we can start this year on the right foot and go for the gold, baby.

PARLAY WINNER:

Tennessee Titans ML

The Titans are the better team everywhere on the field. They were a playoff team a year ago, and I think the additional workload will suit running back Derrick Henry well in the backfield.

Ryan Tannehill hasn’t played football in a year and a half and lost his best weapon — Jarvis Landry — over that span.

 

Baltimore Ravens ML

Joe Flacco had a great camp and preseason, and I think that carries over into the regular season as well. The Bills on the other hand have lost their starting quarterback, 60% of their offensive line is gone and they are generally a team in transition.

Also, Nathan Peterman.

New England Patriots ML

I know people are high on the Texans, but let’s see how healthy J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson are before we jump on them beating the Pats in Foxborough in Week 1. The Patriots will look to wipe the bad taste of a Super Bowl defeat out of their mouths and take it out on the Texans.

Pittsburgh Steelers ML

Fans of “Hard Knocks” may be a tad too high on the Browns this season. While they should improve, I don’t think they’re quite ready to hang with the Steelers in the AFC North. Even without Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers are more than formidable.

Minnesota Vikings ML

The Vikings had an outstanding home-field advantage last season. Their defense simply did not give up points at home. Also, they are a highly explosive offense with Stefon Diggs, Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and the addition of Kirk Cousins. Sorry Jimmy G fans, but I think the winning streak stops in Week 1.

Denver Broncos ML

The Broncos have a lot of talent on offense and defense. They drafted exceptionally well, bringing in Royce Freeman, Courtland Sutton and, of course, Bradley Chubb.

The Seahawks are a team in transition and have lost a ton of talent over the last two years to injuries and departures. They aren’t the same team they were in 2015.

LA Rams ML

I’m not sure what the Raiders are doing, and furthermore, I’m not sure they know what they’re doing. The Rams have an incredible offense and a stout defense. They’re well-coached, and it shouldn’t take much for them to secure a victory against Oakland.
