NFL Preseason Week 1 Betting

The 2019 NFL season gets underway on Thursday, August 1 with the annual Hall of Fame Game between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons from Canton. A full slate of games is on top the following week with every team taking the field in Week 1 of the preseason.

And there’s plenty to look for in the opening of the preseason. They are glorified practice games and we won’t see star players take the field. Several coaches have undertaken a philosophy of sitting high-profile players for a majority of the preseason and the trend appears to be catching on. After all, why would you risk an injury to a key player in a game that means absolutely nothing?

With his value to the team higher than any other, the players on the sideline are usually quarterbacks. Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh and Drew Brees in New Orleans played a few series in one game, and the Rams’ Jared Goff didn’t take a snap last preseason.

The Rams made it to the Super Bowl last season so I guess Sean McVay is doing something right. And since the NFL is a copycat league, we could expect to see more of the same from other clubs.

We don’t know who will be on the field in Week 1 of the preseason, but we do know who will be in the most important non-playing position for each organization. There are eight new head coaches in the NFL in 2019, that’s one-quarter of the league with a new field boss, or a turnover percent of 25. However you want to view it, it’s a lot.

We mostly see a new coach on a team that has struggled or is going through a rebuild, or both. That’s why they got the job in the first place. That’s not the case in Cleveland and there is plenty of buzz surrounding the Browns after an impressive 7-8-1 record a year ago. A sub-.500 record shouldn’t be impressive, but it’s the Browns.

Two years removed from a winless season, it almost feels like a playoffs-or-bust campaign in Cleveland, and Freddie Kitchens is the lucky inheritor of a loaded roster. He also has his fingerprints all over the development of Baker Mayfield. A winning culture is made in the preseason and the Browns get a home game against the Washington Redskins on August 8. I like the development to continue with a win that gets the ball rolling.

Young coaches with bright offensive minds are the rage in the NFL thanks to the success of McVay and Matt Nagy last year. The Arizona Cardinals went that route after Steve Wilks’ one-and-done campaign in the desert at least got the team the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Kliff Kingsbury doesn’t exactly fit the mold since he had previous head coaching experience in college, and it wasn’t great. Hell, he couldn’t win with Patrick Mahomes so it’s a gamble to say it’s going to happen with Kyler Murray. And it’s a gamble I’m not willing to take.

With so many players seeing action that won’t make the final roster, preseason games are difficult to handicap. Expect the lines to be close with no more than a field goal separating the teams. We’ve seen scoring increase around the league and the totals for preseason games have been adjusted accordingly. With some research and handicapping there is money to be won wagering on preseason games.
