Written by on August 6, 2018

If you’re an NFL betting enthusiast, then you know that, in today’s times, you can never start planning for your new betting campaign too early. In an ongoing effort to help you maximize your chances of cashing in early and often this coming season, I’m offering up a super early prediction on each and every game on the NFL Week 1 regular season schedule.

Let’s get started.

2018 NFL Week 1 Early Betting Picks for Every Game

Thursday Sept. 6, 2018

Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles nipped the Falcons in the divisional round in last season’s playoffs and I’m thinking another nail-biter is in store for this regular season opener. Eagles 27 Falcons 24

Sunday Sept. 9, 2018

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: +7, 48

The revamped Browns somehow, some way, manage to cover the chalk in a home loss against their longtime division rivals. Steelers 24 Browns 20.

San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -4.5, 47.5

Minnesota’s defense keeps Jimmy G in check at home while Kirk Cousins leads the Vikes to the win in his debut! Vikings 24 Niners 23.

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -1, 47

I like the Bengals to get the solid road win against a Colts team that has question marks on both sides of the ball! Bengals 31 Colts 21.

Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -3.5, 42

Baltimore holds It down at home in a defensive battle to get the win and narrow ATS cover. Ravens 21 Bills 17.

Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Giants

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: +4, 44

Jacksonville shuts down Eli Manning and New York’s new offense while putting up just enough points to make the road cover stand up! Jaguars 24 Giants 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -7, 52

The Saints, both, rattle veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick – and have their way offensively in this NFC South matchup. Saints 31 Buccaneers 21

Houston Texans at New England Patriots

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -7, 51

You can expect a knock-down, drag-out thriller in this one as the Texans easily cover the chalk. Patriots 31 Texans 28

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins

Are the Titans a safe bet to win in NFL Week 1?
  • NFL Week 1 Odds: +2.5, 46.5

Marcus Mariota and the Titans march into Miami – and leave South Beach with a convincing win and narrow ATS covers. Titans 27 Dolphins 21

Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -3, 48

The Chargers get the narrow home win against the Chiefs but fail to cover the field goal spread. Chargers 24 Chiefs 21

Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -2, 42

I’m thinking there won’t be a whole lot of defense in this Week 1 regular season opener! Over 42 Total Points.

Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -2.5, 45

I’m feeling a Texas-sized beat-down coming for Dak Prescott and company in this one. Panthers 28 Cowboys 24

Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -1, 45

Alex Smith and the Redskins get the narrow road win over a Cardinals team that will need some time to learn first-year head coach Steve Wilks’ schemes. Redskins 24 Cardinals 20

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -8.5, 48

Aaron and the Packers get the win at home, but the new-look Bears cover the chalk! Packers 27 Bears 21

Monday Sept. 10, 2018

New York Jets at Detroit Lions

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -6, 44

Something tells me the Jets are going to show up with a really good effort to get the outright road upset over the Lions and their first-year head coach. Jets 23 Lions 21

Los Angeles Rams at Oakland

  • NFL Week 1 Odds: -1.5, 49.5

The Raiders may be playing at home, but the Rams are the far more complete team in this Week 1 affair. Rams 31 Raiders 21
