The 2018 football season is fast approaching.  It’s the time of year where sports bettors start looking past baseball, and look ahead to the week 1 NFL lines.  Week one of the NFL season can be a difficult week to handicap.  This is even more true in the NFL where the oddsmakers are less overwhelmed than they are in week 1 of the college football season.

A large majority of public bettors are placing bets; and completely ignoring the pre-season.  Most of the public is usually basing their week 1 bets on what happened the previous year as well as the big-name free agent signings in the off-season.  This puts the bookmakers at a huge advantage in week one.

Some helpful wisdom & advice would be for bettors to avoid overlooking major coaching changes.  Looking for teams that have new head coaches (as well as entire coaching staffs) is a great strategy to immediately look for sharp plays that the public may be overlooking.  Nothing can quickly turn a bad team into a contender (and also turn a mediocre team into an irrelevance one), like a new head coach and staff.  So, before placing your week 1 NFL bets, make sure to make note of the teams with entirely new coaching staff.

As for 2018 week one slate, there are some interesting games to watch.

As always, the week 1 Thursday night football game is one worth watching.  The Thursday night NFL opener features the defending Superbowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles who host the Atlanta Falcons.  The Eagles are listed as 4-point home favorites.

On Sunday afternoon, Jimmy Garoppolo & the playoff hopeful 49ers will head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings, who are now under the helm of new Quarterback Kirk Cousins.  Minnesota is listed as a 5.5-point favorites.

The early evening (4pm EST) week 1 slate is highlighted with two matchups.  The Denver Broncos, with new quarterback Case Keenum, are listed as 2.5-point home favorites against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.  Also, Cam Newton & the Panthers host the Dallas Cowboys, with the home Panthers being listed as 2.5 point favorites.

Sunday Night Football features an NFC North rivalry between the Bears and Packers.  Rodgers and the Packers are listed as 8-point favorites at home.
