Biggest Underdogs for NFL 2018 Week 1

NFL 2018 Week 1 UnderdogsWho doesn’t love putting their money down on a good dog when gambling on pro football? Taking the favorites week after week is both boring and lazy, not to mention unprofitable over the long run. If you’re going to always play it safe, why are you even betting in the first place? The term that’s thrown around with reckless abandon is “any given Sunday”, which is obviously shorthand for “on any give Sunday, any team can win”, and sometimes they do just that.

Most upsets in the NFL come in the first few weeks of the season when teams are still sleeping (San Diego Chargers), or when the gambling public hasn’t realized that a team has made the jump to the next level (Jacksonville Jaguars), or who’s the squad that’s on their way to stumbling down the ladder (Seattle Seahawks). It happens every season.

Some of the harder questions to answer at the beginning of this year are:

  • Was Jacksonville a fluke last year?
  • Is this the year that New England finally falls down and can’t get back up?
  • What week will the quarterback controversy start in Philadelphia?

Of course, everyone always has the same question every year: How bad will the Cleveland Browns be? Thankfully, we can bet on the worst team in the NFL and have some fun cheering them on to another heartbreaking campaign. You just have to feel bad for Browns fans, but strangely they aren’t even close to being the biggest “Dog” on the board in Week 1.

So who are the biggest current underdogs that you can get some money down on? Well the largest spread involves the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are taking 10 points against the New Orleans Saints at the Bovada Sportsbook – it seems as if their bookmakers aren’t convinced in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s abilities on the road. This is a frisky division rivalry that would have been interesting if Jameis Winston was playing, but with him suspended this figures to be a fairly easy game for the Saints. If you want to put your money on Drew Brees and the boys, bet at BetOnline since you’ll get an extra half point at -9.5.

You’ll find another half point difference with the next-biggest underdog this Sunday, with Bovada giving Buffalo 8 points against the Ravens and BetOnline giving them 7.5. This should be an easy win for veteran Joe Flacco as he’s facing 2nd year quarterback Nathan Peterman who has yet to prove himself as a proper starter thus far.

Things then get crazy as the Packers, Lions, Vikings and Patriots are all favored by either 6 or 7 points over their opponents. With lots of games with big odds like these you can just smell a few upsets brewing, (49ers outright win, anyone?).
