Football Betting – NFL Week 1 Games to Watch

The time is drawing near for the kickoff of the 2018 National Football League season, and by all accounts, it is wide open with any number of teams from each conference having a chance to play in the Super Bowl. Let’s not jump ahead too far though, and take a look at how the first week is shaping up with a quick NFL Week 1 preview of games to watch.


Falcons @ Eagles | Sept. 6th, 2018, 8:20PM ET | Eagles -3.5 | Total 46


The 2018 season will start how it ended for the Atlanta Falcons, a road trip to the City of Brotherly Love to face the Philadelphia Eagles. Remember that Eagle 15-10 win on Divisional Weekend Saturday this past January. Jake Elliott kicked two second half field goals, the only scoring of that half, to help the Eagles get one step closer to the Super Bowl.

These two teams come into 2018 with pretty much the same core, with both teams drafting some help and adding in free agency. As of late August, QB Carson Wentz still hasn’t been cleared for contact, and with backup Nick Foles looking less than adequate in preseason, is there cause for concern in this opening game for the Eagles?


Looking at these two teams, I expect this to be a defensive battle. The Eagles front 7 really knows how to get after the quarterback, with a great rotation of d-linemen. On the other side of the field, watch for both linebacker Deion Jones and safety Keanu Neal to have an impact in this one. The total has been dropping, so hopefully you got on the UNDER train before the public did.


Steelers @ Browns | Sept. 9th, 2018, 1PM ET | Browns +5.5 | Total 46.5


Is it the hype from Hard Knocks or have the Cleveland Browns finally turned a corner towards winning football? Sportsbooks currently have the Browns win total at 5.5, after winning a total of one game over the past two seasons.


They start the season hosting division top dog and rival Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, and despite the fanfare surrounding the team, are a five and a half point home dog. This should come as any surprise though, with the Steelers winning 9 of their last 10 meetings against the Browns. Since December 2012, the Browns gave only managed one win against the Steelers, on October 12th, 2014 at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The good news for the Browns is that in the last three meetings, they are 2-0-1 against the spread, with the UNDER a convincing 7-3 in the last 10. I’m not buying the Browns just yet, so I’ll let the public bet them up and then fade.


Jaguars @ Giants | Sept. 9th, 1PM ET | Giants +3 | Total 43.5


This is an interesting game to me. On one side you have a team that was up 20-10 on the Patriots in the AFC Championship game with less than 15 minutes to play. We all know how that ended, but this Jags team is clearly a team on the rise. The other side of the spectrum saw the New York Football Giants implode last season, going 3-13, getting the second overall pick in the draft.

That pick, running back Saquon Barkley, might be the fuel to ignite the fire under a team that clearly underachieved last season. The Giants defense is better than the 31st they finished in overall team defense, so look for them to make a quick progression.


Both of these teams are quite possibly better than last, and if QB Blake Bortles continues his noticed improvement, this Jaguar squad will be tough to beat. They finished opposite of the Giants in overall team defense at #2, and used their 1st and 3rd round draft picks to improve it even more.


These two have only met six times, with the Jaguars 5-1 ATS, with a 3-3 split straight up and the OVER 4-1-1. Another storyline in this one is the fact that the coach that led the Giants and Eli Manning to their last two Super Bowls in 2008 and 2012, is now the Jaguars executive vice president of football operations.

You know Tom Coughlin wants to destroy the Giants in their home, not only for old time sake, but to prove to the football world that the Jaguars are for real. And I think they are. The Giants have made some significant improvements, but they will be a 6 or 7 win team this season, and one of them won’t be against the Jaguars in Week 1.

2015 NFC East Preview


The NFL regular season is here. I would like to give you a quick look at the NFC East.

The Dallas Cowboys finished last season 13-5 SU and 10-8 ATS. The Cowboys have really improved their depth at the linebacker position for this upcoming season and with Sean Lee returning from an ACL injury they should be solid at the LB position. Dallas also used 5 of their first 6 picks on the defensive side of the ball. Dallas should be contenders especially if quarterback Tony Romo who lead the league in passer rating last year can come up with similar results. Here’s a trend to keep in mind Dallas is on a 10-0 run as non conference underdogs.


It’s no secret the pressure is on for the New York Giants this season. The Giants have missed the playoffs the last 3 years with their last playoff appearance coming in 2012 where they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. New York finished last season 6-10 SU and 7-9 ATS. The Giants have made some moves in the offseason to improve on a couple of weaknesses. The Giants’ draft included picks to improve their defense and offensive line. Wide receiver Victor Cruz will return after missing 6 games due to a knee injury last season. Cruz and WR Odell Beckham give quarterback Eli Manning two lethal targets. Manning has had his share of struggles over the last two season. The Giants will definitely improve on their record from last year and squeak into the playoffs. Here’s a trend to keep in mind the Giants are 15-2 ATS vs the AFC East when listed as underdogs.
The Philadelphia Eagles finished last season 10-6 SU and 9-7 ATS missing the playoffs. Head coach Chip Kelly made some splashes this offseason with the hope of sending his Eagles into postseason play. The Eagles traded away running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles. The Eagles replaced those two with running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, and quarterback Sam Bradford. The defense should be improved this season with the additions of LB Kiko Alonso and DB Byron Maxwell. Only time will tell if these moves will payoff. Here’s a trend to keep in mind the Eagles are 1-8 in their last 9 vs the NFC West.
The Washington Redskins finished last season 4-12 SU and 5-11 ATS. The heat is on for quarterback Robert Griffin III this season. The Redskins drafted to improve their offensive line to protect QB Griffin. The Redskins will be without LB Brian Orakpo this season which will definitely hurt them but Washington also made some changes to improve on the defensive side of the ball. Redskins’ GM Scot McCloughan has been quoted as saying the team wants to get back to the ground and pound style of play. This team is heading in a positive direction especially if WR DeSean Jackson, RB Alfred Morris and TE Jordan Reed play up to their potential. I’m optimistically hoping for at least an 8-8 season. Here’s a trend to keep in mind the Redskins are 7-1 before Thursday games.

2014 NFC East Predictions


Philadelphia Eagles win the division at 11-5

In a division that has been struggling for years, they are easily the best, I fully expect Nick Foles to show that he is a real QB. He wont put up the staggering numbers like last season with 27 TD and only 2 Ints,  but he’ll be solid. LeSean McCoy is only 26 and entering his prime as one of the best RB’s in the league and Darren Sproles will see a lot of time too at RB and as a kick returner. Maclin will have a bigger year than expected at WR, as long as he stays healthy. Four of their first 6 games are at home prior then they enter their BYE week so they could get off to a great start so my money is on Philly to win the division.

NY Giants 8-8; Eli comes in off a terrible football season. This is a year, something needs to change, with Rueben Randle and Victor Cruz as his main targets, I don’t see much happening this year either. A lot depends on Rashad Jennings, if he can be a RB1 that I think he can be.

Washington Redskins 6-10; Garcon has shown he can be a real threat, and DeSean Jackson will add deep ball play, and as long as RGIII stays healthy, they will score. But they still can’t stop teams from scoring as well.

Dallas Cowboys 8-8;Defense, defense, defense. There really is nothing more to say. Dallas may have the worst defense in the league and they even signed Michael Sam to the practice squad and he’ll probably make the team as a pass rusher since Dallas needs all of the help they can get. Their offense will be one of the best and a healthy Romo with Dez, Witten, Terrence Williams and DeMarco Murray. The new defensive rules will also help the Dallas offense, Romo haters will be mad, when he throws for 400 and the team loses, as their defense will need to step it up. Henry Melton and Anthony Hitchens wont cut it so others must step up. They are in a weak division but overall the 2nd best here and come up short of making the playoffs.
