The 2019 NFL season is here and lets get off to a good start with my "Lock of the Week".

Last season we posted a well above average record and I am looking to build on that this year.

My first pick of the year includes one of the teams that I have picked to make the Super Bowl in Miami.

My first "Lock of the Week" is the Minnesota Vikings -3.5 vs the Atlanta Falcons.

I think that Minnesota has a top defense and that will show on Sunday against Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the rest of the Falcons offense.

This will be a great opportunity for the Vikings offense and Kirk Cousins to take the next step against a questionable D.

At home under Mike Zimmer, the Vikings have been a bettors dream, covering all the time and that trend will continue against Atlanta.

Minnesota hosts Atlanta at US Bank Stadium on Sunday at 12 PM CT.

Here are the rest of the odds for Week 1 via Bookmaker.
