The 2018 NFL season is finally upon us, as the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons in a rematch of last year's playoff game.

Here are our best bets on the game from Warren Sharp and Mike Clay.

Note: Odds courtesy of the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook as of Thursday morning.


Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles (-1)

Total: 45
PickCenter public pick: 66 percent on Atlanta

Sharp: Defending Super Bowl Champions aren't supposed to be disrespected like this by the market. Since the NFL began opening the season with these teams in prime time at home, 11 of these defending Super Bowl Champions started the very same quarterback who won the Super Bowl in their Week 1 game.
