OUR PICK FOR NFL SEASON OPENER SEPTEMBER 10

Normally we stay away from picking NFL games so early in the season.  Obviously there are no season stats available so far, but there are a couple of factors that we will base our selection on.

FACTORS
1.  Pittsburgh RB, LeVeon Bell suspended for tonight's game.  Bell was the 2nd leading rusher in the
     NFL last year.
2.  Pittsburgh # 2 WR, Martavis Bryant suspended for tonight's game
3.  New England QB. Tom "Golden Boy" Brady will play tonight after taking NFL Commissioner,
     Roger Goodell to court and having his 4 game suspension lifted.

Las Vegas odds have New England as 7 point favorites.  Under normal circumstances we would have the Patriots as 5.5 or 6 point favorites, so adding in the above factors to the game, or pick for tonight will be to give the points and take NEW ENGLAND.   GOOD LUCK !!!

good choice going w/ the Pats. The Ssteelers couldn't put a game plan together defensively or offensively until it was too late
