In the next edition of my NFL betting preview I take a look at another two football teams that may be worth having a bet on. In my previous Week 1 NFL picks I made a case for the Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals along with the Under bet in the Giants Cowboys game. Let’s take a look at another couple of weekend warriors to see where we can find some profit. Usual disclaimer- due your own due diligence and research!
NFL Betting Preview – New England Patriots vs. Arizona Cardinals
The Tom Brady-less Patriots visit the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale and find themselves +6 underdogs. This makes sense. Arizona is a top four team to win the Super Bowl, and while they will have to get by the Patriots to do it, they have the edge in the first game of NFL Week 1. When putting together this NFL betting preview I looked at this game and wondered where the value is. I think it is in the Under which sits at a healthy 47.5.
I think you could also hammer Arizona on the moneyline or take a smaller bet on the spread. My gut says that Bill Belichick has already put this one into the Loss column and will not risk injury to key starters by overplaying them. Arizona is too good to lose here so its really about picking your bet.
Betting Picks Week 1 NFL – Cleveland Browns vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles are -4 favorites at home against my hometown heroes aka the Cleveland Browns. The hapless Browns dramatically improved in the off season with the addition of a rehabbed Robert Griffin III. Suddenly Cleveland has hope, yah yah Lebron etc, and could a wild card be in the offing?
The Philadelphia Eagles gave up their starting quarterback in Sam Bradford just over a week before the start of the season which says a lot about what they think their team will do this year. The Eagles are +550 to win the sad sack NFC East Division so they are definitely beatable. I would take the Browns at +4 as I think they could win outright here, but at the very least this should be close.
