FOOTBALL IS BACK! The World Champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the league's season opener. It is time to pick our winners. Here we have my ATS pick and our staff picks straight up.

Against the spread:

The line is New England -7. There are a couple of rules I live by in picks against the spread -- one is don't bet against Tom Brady. That being said, he is going to be extra motivated for what happened this offseason. The home team is always a good pick to start the year and the Steelers are without Le'veon Bell to start the year. I'm going Patriots -7.

Here are the picks for our staff:

Jess Root: Pats
Shaun Church: Steelers
BigRedBilly: Pats
Tyler Derby: Steelers
Jesse Reynolds: Pats
Delilah Cassidy: Pats
Alex Mann: Pats
cdeveau: Steelers
Seth Cox: Pats
Robert Norman: Steelers
Kent Hodder: Pats

That makes it seven picks for the Pats and four for the Steelers. Who is your pick?
