NFL season-openers always carry mystery, but fans and bettors will enter Week 1 of the 2020 NFL schedule with far less information than normal, owing to the pandemic-related cancellation of preseason games. How teams adjust to new coaching staffs is one big question to be answered. Will the Cowboys put it together under Mike McCarthy and cover a field goal on Sunday Night Football in the Rams’ brand-new, $5 billion SoFi Stadium? Can you trust Dallas in your NFL parlays? Before you make any Week 1 NFL predictions and picks, see the latest NFL best bets from legendary handicapper Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg. 

A beloved national treasure, Hammer ended last season on a major heater: Over the final 10 weeks, he went 23-7 on his best bets, an incredible 77 percent cash rate. Hammer’s incredible roll featured a 3-0 sweep on Conference Championship Sunday, giving anyone who parlayed his picks a sweet 6-1 payout, followed by a 2-1 performance in Super Bowl 54. 

This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run. In 2017, Hammer competed against 10 top handicappers in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s NFL Challenge and beat them all, finishing 50-29-6 in against-the-spread picks. 

Now, Hammer has locked in three best bets for Week 1. If you parlay them, you could be looking at a 6-1 payout. You can only see them here.

Top NFL expert picks for Week 1

Hammer says the Bills (-6.5) will dismantle the Jets. “The Bills have a fantastic defense, and now Josh Allen has Stefon Diggs to throw to and Zack Moss in the backfield along with Devin SIngletary,” Hammer told SportsLine. “The Jets stink. They hate their coach. This number could close higher.”
