Week 2 of the NFL preseason has seen several noticeable trends over the years, but bettors should use a bit of caution based on the opening week results. Week 2 has seen the majority of games go over the total in recent years, although the sportsbooks were quick to make some upwards adjustments in their totals after watching overs go 12-4 so far this preseason. Every single total on the Week 2 slate opened at least 38.
The first real week of the preseason is here and Week 1 is often the most unpredictable, as starters will typically play one or two series, with the second unit playing the remainder of the half. The second half often consists of third-string players, along with a number of free agents and players unlikely to make the final roster.
One of the most popular things to bet on is week one of the NFL season as sports bettors look to bet on the early lines and seize value.
The season opener features the Baltimore Ravens versus the Denver Broncos. Although the Ravens are the defending champions, Peyton Manning and the Broncos are 9.5 point favorites in the first game of the season.
There are two different approaches when it comes to betting the first few weeks of a new NFL season. Some bettors like to wager early, believing that is when it is possible to get an edge on the oddsmakers. Others prefer to go slowly at the beginning, electing to wait until teams have played several games before stepping in once they are better able to assess how a team is going to perform.
