NFL Week 1 is here! The new season of the NFL is only days away and we have expert betting tips for every game this week.
It looks like another great season of NFL action and there are many teams that could take out the Super Bowl in February.
Packers vs. Bears kicks off action on Friday and we can’t wait for the season to start!
10:20am Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears @ Soldier Field
This is a great game to kick off the season as the Bears welcome the Packers into town.
2018 was an incredible year for the Bears and they could have progressed further in the playoffs had they not missed a late field goal in the Conference Finals.
Packers are always dangerous because of Aaron Rodgers, but we’re going with the Bears to score a comfortable home win to start the season.

Bears by 10
3:00am Tennessee Titans vs. Cleveland Browns @ FirstEnergy Stadium
Both of these teams are evenly matched this week but more spotlight will be on the Browns.
Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr could team up for an incredible season, but off-field antics could derail their chances.
The Titans are a professional unit which looked good last season. They are an underrated team and if Marcus Mariota can perform well, an upset could be on the cards here.
Most of the money has come for the Browns but we’re going with the Titans in a close game.

3:00am Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins @ Hard Rock Stadium
Expectations are high for the Baltimore Ravens and it all falls on the shoulders of second-year QB Lamar Jackson.
He had a good season in 2018 and he’s only going to get better with more experience. That should bode well for this game.
Facing the Dolphins is a good start for Baltimore, which has the best defense in the NFL statistically. The Marlins are struggling to find a good quarterback and playing good defense isn’t easy.
Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick will be up against it this week, so we’re going for the Ravens.

Ravens by 10
3:00am Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings @ U.S. Bank Stadium
This should be a classic Week 1 game and these two teams could make a playoff run this season.
The Vikings hold home ground advantage and that’s typically a big asset in Minnesota. The Falcons are used to playing in a dome, so playing outside has never favoured them.
That should give the Vikings an edge and although it’s tough to bet against Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, this situation favours the Vikings.

Vikings by 7
3:00am Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets @ MetLife Stadium
There is a bit of excitement in New York this season and it’s not for the Giants.
The Jets look like a team capable of having a winning record with Sam Darnold at quarterback and Le’Veon Bell at running back.
That combination could win the Jets plenty of games and we’re surprised that they’re only the –3 favourites.
Buffalo doesn’t look that great to start the season and they could suffer their first of many losses on Sunday morning.

3:00am Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles @ Lincoln Financial Field
This is a stout rivalry game to kick off the new season but the Eagles should be able to soar.
There are massive quarterback issues with the Redskins and they could be in for a very long season.
It’s the opposite in Philadelphia, who put their trust in Carson Wentz. He’s one of the better QB’s in the league when he stays injury free.
We’re expecting big things from the Eagles here and they should be able to dispatch the Redskins.
They are the biggest favourites in Week 1.
Betting tip: Eagles –9.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Eagles by 14
3:00am LA Rams vs. Carolina Panthers @ Bank of America Stadium
The Los Angeles Rams couldn’t get the job done in the Super Bowl earlier this year but take nothing away from them.
They are a classy side and a return visit to the Super Bowl in February could be on the cards.
Jared Goff has just signed a four-year extension as Rams’ quarterback and he can now play with some freedom.
Punters should also expect Todd Gurley to get back to his brilliant best after he went missing in the final stages of last season.
Panthers are tough to beat at home, however. They own a good record at home vs the Rams and that should make for a close game.
Betting tip: Rams –2.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Rams by 5
3:00am Kansas City Chiefs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars @ TIAA Bank Field
What an exciting season the Kansas City Chiefs’ fans are in for. They were simply amazing last year and we’re expecting similar results in 2019.
Led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs can seemingly score on every possession and that makes them tough to beat.
However, the Jaguars look improved this season after getting rid of Blake Bortles. He held them back and now Nick Foles can lead the side.
Tough game to call but we’re finding it hard to bet against the Chiefs. They could be headed for a Super Bowl spot this season and they like to start hot.
Betting tip: Chiefs –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Chiefs by 7
6:05am Indianapolis Colts vs. LA Chargers @ Dignity Health Sports Park
Indianapolis’ season took a turn for the worse when Andrew Luck retired a week ago.
It was a real shock for the franchise and now it’s up to Jacoby Brissett to lead from the front.
That’s going to play right into the hands of the LA Chargers, who looked destined for a big season last year and we weren’t disappointed.
Improvement could be on the cards in 2019 and we’re confident they’re going to be around the 10-6 mark this season.
Comfortable victory in the offing for the Chargers at home.
Betting tip: Chargers –6.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now

6:05am Cincinnati Bengals vs. Seattle Seahawks @ CenturyLink Field
It’s not easy to bet on the Bengals and we don’t recommend doing that in Week 1 against the Seahawks.
Seattle looks set for another deep playoff run this season and getting off to a winning start against the Bengals looks likely.
There’s a distinct class advantage to the Seahawks and beating them at CenturyLink Field is one of the hardest things to do in the NFL.
Betting tip: Seahawks –9.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Seahawks by 21
6:25am New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys @ AT&T Stadium
The New York Giants had a strange offseason where they let go of Odell Beckham Jr and signed an unheralded quarterback.
That could translate to some poor play throughout the regular season and playing Dallas in the opening week won’t make it easy.
The only good thing for the Giants is running back Saquon Barkley, but he can’t do everything.
Dallas has also had some off-field drama with Zeke Elliott, but he’s nearing a contract signing and should be ready to suit up.
Betting tip: Cowboys -7 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Cowboys by 10
6:25am Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Stadium
It’s going to be experience vs youth as Matthew Stafford takes on Kyler Murray on Monday morning.
Murray is the #1 pick and Heisman Trophy winner. The former Oklahoma star could be in for a huge season but his Cardinals teammates aren’t the best.
He will need to understand that they’re not expected to win many games this season.
On the other hand, the Lions are an experienced unit and could take advantage of that come Week 1.
However, excitement can produce wins and we’ll go with the Cardinals here.
Betting tip: Cardinals +2.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Cardinals by 3
6:25am San Francisco 49ers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Raymond James Stadium
Jimmy Garappolo has looked rusty during the preseason but the 49ers QB could be the determining factor in this.
Garappolo signed a big contract last season and got injury. It was unfortunate as he looked good prior to that and he’s due a big 2019.
The Buccaneers could be in for a long season, but it all depends on quarterback Jameis Winston. He needs to keep his mind on the job.
If Winston does that, the Buccaneers could score some upset wins this season.

10:20am Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots @ Gillette Stadium
What a classic battle to kick off Sunday night football in the US. The Steelers take on the Patriots in what could be an instant classic.
Patriots are coming off a Super Bowl victory and Tom Brady hasn’t appeared to have slowed down in the offseason.
Steelers are also coming off a good season, but they did miss the playoffs. They scored a win over the Patriots last season and that will spur them on.
Tough game to call but we’re giving the advantage to the Steelers with the points.
Betting tip: Steelers +5.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Patriots by 5
9:10am Houston Texans vs. New Orleans Saints @ Mercedes-Benz Stadium
The Texans’ season didn’t get off to a good start after losing their running back in the offseason.
Facing the Saints could add to their pain as we’re expecting the Saints to have a massive season after looking the goods last year.
Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara are two of the best offensive players around and they could pile on the points early against the Texans.
This game could be over by halftime unless the Texans’ defense arrives big time.
Betting tip: Saints -7 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Saints by 18
10:20am Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders @ Oakland Coliseum
The Raiders will need to rebound after a shocking first season for coach Jon Gruden.
They have had their fair share of troubles in the offseason but that could all mean nothing come Week 1.
Standing in their way of making a winning start are the Denver Broncos, which should be in for a positive season.
This should be a close game and the Raiders could do enough on Tuesday afternoon.
