The first week of the NFL regular season is in the books and here is what happened on the wagering front.
Favorites: 8-5-1 SU and 6-7-1 ATS (Two games went as Pick's and the home team was 2-0) Favorite of 7 or more: 1-2 SU and ATS Favorites of 3 or less: 2-2-1 SU and 1-3-1 ATS Home Underdogs: 0-2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS
This all leads to our score-based Power Ratings, which is new this season. These type of ratings are based not only on records but on how teams did against the point spread, which gives us a broader view when it comes to understanding strengths of a team when making lines.
Here are this week's ranking and team comments. Your comments are always welcome.
Odds: +800 Record: 1-0 SU and ATS Last Week's Rank: 1st
If Kirk Cousins continues to grow with this team and Dalvin Cook can play all season, this might the best team at the end of the season also. Big game at Green Bay.
Odds: +900 Record: 1-0 SU and ATS Last Week's Rank: 5th
The L.A. Rams were methodical and dismantled Oakland quarter by quarter and showed their talent and diversity.
Odds: +600 Record: 1-0 SU and ATS Last Week's Rank: 3rd
The New England defense appears stronger and there is more speed at receiver position since when Randy Moss played there. AFC title game rematch Sunday.
Odds: +900 Record: 1-0 SU and ATS Last Week's Rank: 2nd
The Philadelphia defense saved them against Atlanta in the first half and the offense did what was needed in a hard-fought win over the Falcons. Interesting test at Tampa Bay.
Odds: +2500 Record: 1-0 SU and ATS Last Week's Rank: 12th
Easily the most impressive performance of the week. Baltimore has played well since the starts of the preseason and can send notice they are for real with a win at Cincy Thursday.
Odds: +1200 Last Week's Rank: 6th Record: 1-0 and 0-1 ATS
An unbelievable win over Chicago, their greatest second-half comeback ever. Aaron Rodgers status is unknown with big game Vikings contest on tap.
Odds: +1000 Last Week's Rank: 4th Record: 0-0-1 and 0-1 ATS
Another lackluster Steelers showing and they were fortunate to get a tie with a -5 turnover margin. Challenging Kansas City home game next.
Odds: +2000 Last Week's Rank: 8th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Atlanta just cannot win in Philly falling to 1-9 SU and ATS. Falcons need a home win over Carolina or this might be an overvalued squad.
Odds: +2800 Last Week's Rank: 13th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
Carolina beat Dallas in the trenches, which was a little surprising considering their injuries in the offensive line. Are the Panthers better than we think? We find out in Atlanta.
Odds: +2000 Last Week's Rank: 15th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
Andy Reid has big-play offense and Pat Mahomes has tremendous arm strength. Pittsburgh always gives Chiefs trouble.
Odds: +1600 Last Week's Rank: 9th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
That Jacksonville defense is stout and can take away principles of many offenses. The offense will have to be better this week to upset New England at home.
Odds: +1800 Last Week's Rank: 7th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
The defense was a no-show against Tampa Bay and was lit up like the Fourth of July. Immediate improvement required.
Odds: +6600 Last Week's Rank: 19th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
Nice come from behind triumph for Cincinnati at Indianapolis. But those were the Colts, here come the Ravens to the Queen City.
Odds: +2500 Last Week's Rank: 11th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Victimized by the big play offense of Kansas City and way too many crucial mistakes on their part. The Chargers should win in Buffalo, but.....?
Odds: +3300 Last Week's Rank: 16th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
San Francisco had good, not great front-line talent, but a number of starters are already injured to start the season for Niners.
Odds: +4000 Last Week's Rank: 14th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Potentially a team in trouble with no offensive identity. Was Dak Prescott that good early in his career because of the players around him?

Ryan Fitzpatrick has games like he did in New Orleans and just as soon as expectations come with past performances, he starts making mistakes again.
Odds: +6600 Last Week's Rank: 18th Record: 0-1 and 0-0-1 ATS
After all these years Seattle still has not put together an even an average offensive line as we saw against Denver. Here comes Khalil Mack Monday!
Odds: +10000 Last Week's Rank: 29th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
Gang Green whipped Detroit in all phases of their game. If the Flyboys play like that in the home opener against Miami, they could be 2-0!
Odds: +5000 Last Week's Rank: 28th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
There was a different vibe in watching Alex Smith running the Washington offense. Let's see if Redskins can bury a part of history with a follow-up effort at home vs. Indy.
Odds: +2500 Last Week's Rank: 17th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Deshaun Watson played like the rookie many expected last year in the season opener. A victory at Tennessee could establish the Texans as the second-best team in their division.
Odds: +8000 Last Week's Rank: 10th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Cannot think of a team that had a winning record the previous year, changed head coaches and looked worse in their first game. Detroit is 0-8 SU in San Francisco since 1992.
Odds: +8000 Last Week's Rank: 24th Record: 1-0 SU and ATS
Miami played more like in 2016 with Ryan Tannehill back under center and the offensive line might be better than most thought coming in.
Odds: +6600 Last Week's Rank: 21st Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Tennessee defense was picked apart by Miami's short passing game and the D-Line offered little resistance. Marcus Mariota, where are you?
Odds: +6600 Last Week's Rank: 20th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
The defense hung in versus Jacksonville and the offense made a few plays, but they still lost. A loss at Dallas could linger on a team expecting improvement this season.
Odds: +3300 Last Week's Rank: 27th Record: 1-0 SU and 0-0-1 ATS
Case Keenum tossed three picks and Denver's not going to win many games with that as part of their winning formula.
Odds: +8000 Last Week's Rank: 22nd Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Good game plan against the Rams, then talent took over. Derek Carr continues to make poor decisions which cost his team.
Odds: +5000 Last Week's Rank: 30th Record: 0-1 SU and 1-0 ATS
If Chicago plays somewhere in the middle of the two half's they played against Green Bay last week they will be improved.
Odds: +15000 Last Week's Rank: 26th Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
Sam Bradford played awful for Arizona and the play-calling left much to be desired. The defensive front seven was abused, this bears watching.
Odds: +50000 Last Week's Rank: 23rd Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
All the talk of quarterback play going to be an issue in Buffalo was 100 percent true in Week 1. Should rookie Josh Allen just play and have on the job training?
Odds: +8000 Last Week's Rank: 32nd Record: 0-0-1 and 1-0 ATS
The good news, Cleveland will not be 0-16 this season. The bad news, they are on an 18-game winless streak and are at an angry New Orleans bunch.
Odds: +10000 Last Week's Rank: 31st Record: 0-1 SU and ATS
The Colts had 23-10 lead over the Bengals almost halfway through the third quarter and were outscored 24-0 the rest of the way. Ranking appears accurate.
