And, of course, we can't resist betting on it.
The defending Super Bowl champions are six-point favorites against Tennessee tomorrow and show good value in our Free NFL Picks system. James Harrison, shown above riding in the Steelers victory parade, should help the Steelers ride their top defense to victory in the opener.
Last year, our Free NFL Picks had a pretty strong season at 31-22-2 (58%), but we can do better. The 60% mark is always our benchmark, and we're usually at or above it with most of our systems. We're looking forward to reaching that goal--and going much, much further in what could prove to be our most profitable year of football betting ever.
Make sure to check back every weekend for our Free NFL Picks, as well as our Free NCAA Football Picks (off to a 67% start). Both finishing with winning records in 2008, but we want much more than that in '09.
Again, our First Free NFL pick of the 2009 season is:
Steelers -6 over Titans
Good luck and welcome back to football season! We hope you'll come back week after week for more picks. We'll give you good reason to.
