After what seems like forever, football returns this weekend and therefore, so do our weekly guides to help readers get the most bang for their buck. It’s always important to line shop to get the best numbers, especially when you want to bet on NFL Underdogs at offshore sportsbooks and feast on meaty odds.
Every year crazy upsets happen during the first few weeks and then by October gamblers slowly realize that a team is making the move from “worst to first”. So who’s going to do it this year? Well, there’s a few solid candidates with the Steelers and Rams at the top of the list for free fall so 2019 should be interesting.
First up for Week 1 is a home Dog with the Miami Dolphins sitting at +7 against the Baltimore Ravens. That number seems fair but it’s important to remember that Ryan Fitzpatrick is now the quarterback for the Fins and he’s well-known in the league for his early season magic. The Ravens should win outright but Fitzy could keep the final score close by playing decently – he should have at least 2 weeks of surprises left in him. Anyone wanting the Ravens to cover should book action at SportsBetting.ag since they’re gifting a half point with their spread of 6½.
Next up are the Dallas Cowboys who are hosting another squad that’s projected to be horrible in 2019, the New York Giants, and the Boys are currently at -7½ at every offshore site. There’s also the Bengals tangling with the Seahawks in Seattle and getting 9½ points for the pleasure – this line might actually be too small since A.J. Green will be watching from the sidelines.
Finally, we have the first “Triple D” of the year, or “Double Digit Dog”, boasting a spread of 10 points on Sunday. The honor goes to none other than the Washington Redskins who are on the road against a retooled Eagles team with Carson Wentz under center. Spreads of double digits are always dangerous in divisional games since the teams hate each other and never back down but this one should be safe. Actually come to think of it, the Skins are technically the first “Quad D” of the year: “Double Digit Divisional Dog”. Crazy.
