NFL Picks Week 1, 2014 - Office Pool, Survivor and Predictions Against the Spread
The National Football League regular season gets underway tonight (September 4, 2014) with a prime time game between the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.
Check below for all of the week's Office Pool picks along with a Survivor pick (Suicide Pool) and some Las Vegas experts choices to bet on against the spread.
The Thursday night game could be a great test for Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, he will face the NFL's number one defense in a very hostile environment.
The Seahawks are ready to defend their very first NFL Championship and the noise from the stadium will be a fever high pitch at kick off and all throughout the game.
The game can be seen on NBC TV and starts at 8:35 EDT / 5:35 on the West Coast.
There are several great match ups for the opening weekend of the National Football League season and if you are looking for help with your weekly pick 'em pool for the office check below, we make a prediction on each game (without the point spread).
A survivor pick is also provided.
Some people call this a suicide pool because if you lose, you are eliminated.
Most rules are similar, you pick one team each week that you think will win and if they do, you continue in the pool.
That continues every week until everyone drops out except for the very last person who is the survivor and the winner of the pool.
However, you can't take the same team twice.
Once you use a team and win, they are no longer in your available teams for you to pick in the survivor pool for the remainder of the season.
Survivor pool week one:
Philadelphia Eagles over Jacksonville Jaguars.

The number to the far right is the over/under number, bettors try to predict that the total score from both teams will either go over or under that total.
