Top 5 Best Bets to Win Super Bowl LIV

by WagerHome Blog on November 12, 2019

The New England Patriots have dominated the last two decades by treating November and December as the real regular season, and September and October as tuneups. We are now in that “regular season,” and the Patriots are still atop the list of Super Bowl champion favorites. But at +250, are they the most valuable buy?

It is estimated that 118 million people in the United States will place a bet on the NFL this year. If you’re one of those 118 million, you’ve thought about a Super Bowl bet. And if you’re one of the many entrepreneurial bookmakers looking to begin your own Pay Per Head site, the NFL and the Super Bowl is soon to become your bread and butter. So the following information is definitely for you.

Green Bay Packers

A little shine came off the Packers after their loss to the Chargers, dropping them to +1200. But Aaron Rodgers is still Aaron Rodgers, and he has shown that Matt LaFleur’s offense is much to his liking. The NFL overreacts, and it’s an overreaction to think the Packers aren’t still a top-five pick to win the Super Bowl.

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson is having an MVP season, Seattle just added Josh Gordon, and while this isn’t the most talented Seahawks team we’ve ever seen, at +2000 there is incredible value in taking them as a Super Bowl pick.

Kansas City Chiefs

It’s not how you start, but how you finish, as the Patriots have taught us. The Chiefs are getting healthy at just the right time, their schedule over the last six weeks lays out very nicely for them, and there’s a guy named Patrick Mahomes under center. The loss at Tennessee (a team they always lose to) also drops their odds, making the bet even more attractive.

Baltimore Ravens

You really wanted to take the Ravens a month ago. Since their win over New England and their dismantling of the Bengals, they look like a Super Bowl contender. But while you might not get the odds you would have gotten back in September, the winner is the winner, and you want to hold that ticket. Lamar Jackson is a matchup nightmare, and they look like a real possibility.

Houston Texans

The Patriots, 49ers, or Saints could all go here. But they are heavy favorites, and the reward simply doesn’t warrant the risks each team presents. But talk about reward – the Texans are at +2500 and have the one key ingredient every contender needs, a quarterback at the top of his game. Deshaun Watson makes this more than an appealing number to place a wager.

Search for the best odds before placing your bets, obviously. And if you do decide that Pay Per Head is indeed for you, allowing you to provide your customers with an easy-to-use online betting portal, and with posted odds that are completely customizable for you, WagerHome.com has 15 years of experience and offers four free weeks of use before you have to commit.

Best of luck the rest of the season.

Five NFL Teams To Bet On In Week 10

by WagerHome Blog on November 9, 2019

The NFL regular season is half over, and the San Francisco 49ers are the last undefeated team in the league. The New England Patriots lost last weekend, which was their first loss of the season, but they are still the betting favorite to win the Super Bowl.

As a PPH bookie, the NFL season gives you tons of betting options to offer your players, which is great for you, considering you can really make a profit. Having a legit PPH site, like the ones from WagerHome.com, that is well set up and offers players NFL betting options can be profitable for you and keep your players happy with all the wagers they can make.

Let’s take a look at Week 10 action and five teams to bet on.

Los Angeles Rams -3.5 at Pittsburgh Steelers

While the Rams are on the road and their two-game win streak has come against weak opponents, they are still the pick in this game. Yes, the Steelers have won three in a row, but they had a little luck on their side in their last game and may be without starting RB James Conner for a second straight game.

Baltimore Ravens -10 at Cincinnati Bengals

The Ravens are flying high, winning four in a row, and handing the Patriots their first loss of the season in their last game. Lamar Jackson has emerged as an MVP candidate, and Baltimore is a double-digit road favorite even though they only beat Cincy by six points at home early in the season. The Ravens are the pick against the winless Bengals in this game, as they have the top-ranked rushing offense in the NFL, while Cincy ranks dead last in the league in run defense.

Kansas City Chiefs -4 at Tennessee Titans

The Chiefs are coming off a big win over the Minnesota Vikings, and they have won two of their last three games with backup Matt Moore. Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes is expected back for this game, and that would really spell doom for Tennessee.

Kansas City has many offensive weapons, and it will outmatch the Titans, even in their house. Tennessee has not beaten a team with a winning record this season, and that will continue in this game, as it will lose its second in a row and fail to cover the spread.

Minnesota Vikings +3 at Dallas Cowboys

In the Big D in the Sunday night primetime game, the Cowboys are a three-point home favorite against the Vikings. Dallas has won two in a row and is atop the NFC East, but it has been inconsistent on the season. The Cowboys beat the 5-4 Eagles in the game before their last one, but their other four wins have come facing teams that have a combined five wins.

The Vikings lost their last game where league rushing leader Dalvin Cook struggled. He will get back on track, and in this close game, Minnesota will, at least, cover the spread.

Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers -5.5

The Packers took their worst loss of the season in their last game, while the Panthers are coming off a solid win where Christian McCaffrey had 166 total yards from scrimmage with three TDs.

The reason Green Bay is the pick is that it is back home at Lambeau Field, and Aaron Rodgers, who passed for 429 yards with 5 TDs and no interceptions in his last home game, will light it up.

Four Darkhorse NFL Teams To Win Super Bowl LIV

by WagerHome Blog on November 2, 2019

The Super Bowl is a while off as it’s just the middle of the season in the NFL. However, that does not mean that there is not Super Bowl betting action, as there is a lot of it. There are many futures bets that you can make not only to win the Super Bowl, but for the conferences, divisions, and individual award honors.

This is key, as since you are a bookie, you want to let your players know all of their NFL betting options. Futures bets are just one of them, and you need to let your players know those betting options, as the more options they have, the more they can bet and the more money you can make.

With a reliable PPH website, such as the one you can get at WagerHome.com, you can make some serious money taking NFL bets since there are so many to be made. Speaking of the futures bets, let’s look into the future at some teams that are dark horses to win the Super Bowl.

The teams with the top five betting odds to win the big game are the Patriots, Saints, Packers, 49ers, and Chiefs, but let’s look at some teams that may buck the odds and win the big game and their betting odds to do so.

Baltimore Ravens (+1800)

The Ravens are atop the AFC North and are the only team in the division with a winning record. Lamar Jackson has had a great sophomore season so far, leading a balanced attack on offense, and the defense has been pretty good. You can’t sleep on the Ravens, who are dangerous with Jackson under center with what he has shown he can do with his arm and legs.

Seattle Seahawks (+2500)

The Seahawks still have Russell Wilson under center, and he has played great this season. The team was beaten badly by the Ravens recently, but Seattle rebounded and won its next game. The team has a top 10 rushing offense and a good defense, and that is a formula that can go far.

Philadelphia Eagles (+2200)

The Eagles are only 4-4 midway through the season, but they have talent on both sides of the ball. Carson Wentz has been pretty good this season, and the run game is coming around. The defense is stout against the run, but the pass defense has been a big issue. If it can shore up its secondary, Philadelphia can surprise some people.

Indianapolis Colts (+2500)

After the midway point in the season, the Colts are in first place in the AFC South even through their franchise QB, Andrew Luck, retired abruptly before the season. Jacoby Brissett has not put up big numbers but only has three interceptions at the halfway point, and the team ranks a legit 11th in the NFL in rushing yards per game. Indy has, arguably, the best offensive line in the game, and the team has proven it can win big games on the road with its win over the Chiefs in Kansas City.

The Super Bowl is HUGE when it comes to you as a bookie with a PPH site. There are so many bets to make on the game, and there is no other game that has more proposition bets. If you have NFL bettors in your fold, then reach out to them with the many betting options available. The Super Bowl is a time where you can make some serious green with all the betting action on the big game.

Season-to-Date Football Betting Results

The NFL wrapped up the first quarter of its regular season schedule and the early betting trends still favor the underdogs against the spread with a winning rate of 61.3 percent. The best bet through the first four weeks has been road dogs winning 70 percent of the time. Road teams in general have been a profitable play covering 64.5 percent of their games. Road teams have also won 56.5 percent of their games straight-up.

Underdogs have won close to 42 percent of the time straight-up to add some action to the NFL moneyline bet. The best bet on the total line has been the UNDER with a winning rate of 55.6 percent.

The betting results for the first five weeks of the college football season have been much more stable. While the favorites have won 84.7 percent of their games SU, their winning rate ATS is just 50.8 percent. All the betting trends ATS are just about even with road favorites having the best edge at 53.2 percent. The UNDER has a winning rate of 52.3 percent when it comes to betting the college football total line.

One of the biggest handicapping contests of the NFL season is the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest. Last week, the consensus picks road the Kansas City Chiefs with 1463 picks, but they could not cover the seven points in a tight 34-30 road win against Detroit. New England was second on the list with 930 picks but the Patriots failed to cover in a tight 16-10 road win against Buffalo as seven-point favorites.

Early NFL Week 5 Consensus Picks

The early betting consensus for Week 5 in the NFL is back on the 4-0 Patriots at 69 percent as heavy 15.5-point road favorites against the 0-4 Washington Redskins. The 0-4 Arizona Cardinals are a solid bet at 65 percent as three-point road underdogs against the 0-4 Cincinnati Bengals.

Most of the games this week are tight either way with no clear favorite. There are also several “too close to call” scenarios betting the NFL total line.

This Weekend’s Big Betting Games

Can the Rays upset the best team in baseball?

NFL 2019 Week 4 in Review

by Wager Home on October 1, 2019

There must have been something in the air last week because the action during Week 4 of the regular season was a full of upsets, some surprising, some not so much. Underdogs were 9-7 in Week 3, and Week 4 watched at eight more dogs pulled out wins. We’ll talk about a lot of it in this week’s NFL 2019 Week 4 in Review.

The Bucs upset of the Rams was one of many in Week 4

The Bucs upset of the Rams was one of many in Week 4

There was also another starting quarterback injury, which could upset the balance of power in the NFC North. If you’re looking for power in your aspiring bookie business, consider a pay per head free trial and put your career on autopilot. Now, back to Week 4.

Upset Special

It all started on Thursday night when Philadelphia went into Green Bay and beat the Packers, who were 3-point favorites, 34-27. It continued over the weekend as we saw some shocking upsets, like the Cleveland Browns who were giving away a touchdown to the Baltimore Ravens.

In Baltimore no less, the Browns Nick Chubb did something not many running backs do against a Ravens defense. He rushed for 165 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead Cleveland to a rather easy 40-25 victory.

A similar surprise occurred in Los Angeles where Tampa Bay really had no business being able to play with the 3-0 Rams. Well, until the game started anyway. The Bucs never trailed and, despite being 9-point road dogs, crushed the Rams 55-40. Tampa Bay joined Carolina, Oakland, Tennessee, Jacksonville, and New Orleans as underdogs that won in Week 4.

Cover or Not to Cover

Detroit entered Week 4 unbeaten at 2-0-1 and a 7-point underdog at home against Kansas City. No one would have thought the Lions would have a shot to beat the NFL’s best offense, but they did. If not for a Chiefs touchdown in the final minute, Detroit would have pulled the upset. The Lions did, however, cover the spread losing 34-30.

A similar set of circumstances were found in Buffalo.

Two unbeaten teams – New England and the Bills – met with the home team a 7-point underdog. The Bills gave the Patriots everything they could handle. New England QB Tom Brady had one of the worst days of his career completing 18-of-39 passes for just 150 yards.

If not for four turnovers and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, the Bills might have pulled the upset. Instead, they covered losing 16-10. There is always value to be found when betting football.

The Bills were a great value pick this week

The Bills were a great value pick this week

The Chargers were the week’s biggest favorite as NFL dud Miami was giving 15 points. The Dolphins continued their futility giving up 30 points or more for the fourth straight week while scoring just 10. The 30-10 allowed the Chargers to cover.

In addition to the Chargers, the Giants, Seahawks, Bears, and Steelers all won and covered in Week 4.

QB Injury Bug

The latest starting quarterback to go down was Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears starter was hurt on the sixth play of their game against Minnesota. He suffered a disclocated left shoulder that will not require surgery. The Bears head to London to play Oakland next week, and Trubisky is unlikely to play.

If you have Trubisky on your fantasy team, you may want to readjust your lineup. You may even want to look for another quarterback as Trubisky could miss a few weeks while healing.

Contest Updates

The Westgate Supercontest is beginning to heat up as two contestants are starting to pull away from the rest of the pack. ER @ JAR and TUCO both 5-0 in Week 4 to move to 19-1 overall. The two share the top spot and they also shared the $15,000 1st Quarter Bonus. THE HUMAN FUND, TRAIHP86, and ZAMBUIE EXPRESS each went 5-0 in Week 4 to move to 17-3 overall just behind the leaders.

After three weeks in the Golden Nugget Ultimate Football Challenge, SIRIUS-3 sits alone atop the leaderboard with a 17-3-1 record for 17.50 points. DETROIT LION-1 and MIDNIGHT RUN-1 are tied for second at 17-4-0 (17.00 points).

Finding Value in a Big Football Weekend

by Wager Home on September 28, 2019

It is the greatest time of year. All weekend long, you can find football everywhere and, for bettors looking to increase their bankrolls, the possibilities are almost endless. It has actually already begun with Thursday night action in both college and professional football. It continues with a full slate of college games on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday and Monday night.

Whether you are a bettor looking for value picks or an aspiring bookie searching for the best pay per head service, you will likely have your eye on this weekend’s action. There is plenty of it and a number of great options. Here’s a look at where you may be able to increase that bankroll.

List of NFL Unbeatens to Shrink

At least two of the NFL’s unbeatens are going down on Sunday. New England (3-0) travels to Buffalo (3-0) and the Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) take on the surprising unbeaten Detroit Lions (2-0-1).

The Chiefs are a 6.5-point road chalk with Sunday’s Total set at 54.5. Think about it. Kansas City’s offense indoors and the Lions might be without their top two cornerbacks – Darius Slay and Rashaan Melvin. Ouch!

The Patriots are another big road favorite, but bettors should look to New England’s recent record as a road favorite. As a single-digit road favorite, the Patriots were 1-5. They were 0-3 when favored by 6-9 points away from home. Add in this interesting tidbit: The Patriots are 17-0 in their last 17 games against first- or second-year quarterbacks.

The Patriots also play a lot of man coverage. In fact, they have the second-highest usage rate for man coverage in the league. Bills QB Josh Allen averages 8.0 yards per attempt against zone coverage but just 6.6 yards per attempt against man. Hmmmm?

Get all your NFL odds here.

Double-Digit Values in College Football

There are some double-digit spreads this weekend in college football that should entice bettors and price per head services alike. Take No. 21 USC traveling to No. 17 Washington. The Huskies are a 10.5-point- home favorite. One would expect a closer game between two ranked opponents playing a huge conference game.

But, the Trojans are down to their final healthy scholarship quarterback, Matt Fink. He came on last week in relief of Kedon Slovis to pull an upset of Utah. Saturday will be the first-ever start for Fink, a 6-3, 200-pound junior. On the road against a defense that gives up just 18 points a game, it could get ugly for USC.

Kedon Slovis left last week's game with a head injury

Kedon Slovis left last week’s game with a head injury

Another big value game involves fifth-ranked Ohio State traveling to Lincoln to take on Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are 3-1 and played the Buckeyes extremely tough a year ago, but this season Nebraska is a 17-point home underdog.

Sure Ohio State has won its last 10 games by an average of 25 points, but the Cornhuskers, under second-year head coach Scott Frost, need a program win and this would be it.

Virginia traveling to No. 10 Notre Dame is another matchup of ranked teams with another double-digit favorite. The home Fighting Irish are favored by 10.5 points. Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall is slowly building something really good at Virginia. Notre Dame was on the other end of the stick last week as a double-digit road dog at Georgia. The Irish covered in a 23-17 loss.

It could be the Cavaliers turn this week to do the same. Virginia allows just 75 rushing yards and 263.8 total yards per game. They slow opponent down and have allowed over 17 points just once in their last five games.

College or professional, there are a numerous games this weekend where bettors can find a nugget. Get in on the action or ramp up your own bookie business with a pay per head free trial. You’ll be glad you did after this weekend.

NFL Week 2 2019 | Week in Review

by Wager Home on September 18, 2019

The NFL betting world can calm down now. After the typical Week 1 overreactions, Week 2 showed bettors that one week does not make a season. For some teams, Week 2 was the entire season as the theme was injuries. We’ll bring you the NFL Week 2 2019 Week in Review.

There were quite a few that will affect the rest of the 2019 season. We saw some big line changes in the Browns-Jets game due to Jets QB Sam Darnold’s case of mononucleosis. Remember, you can track line changes with the right pay per head software. On to the Week 2 recap…

WINNERS

A number of teams remained 2-0 SU with wins in Week 2. The Patriots, Rams, 49ers, Seahawks, Bills, Ravens, Packers, Chiefs, and Cowboys all remain unbeaten. The Patriots were the weekend’s biggest favorite at -18 over the dumpster fire that is the Miami Dolphins. New England assured it would cover with two pick-six touchdown returns within two minutes of each other.

The Chiefs were a 7-point favorite over their rival Oakland. Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes threw four second quarter touchdowns to ensure the Chiefs would cover. The Ravens weren’t as fortunate. Baltimore was a 13-point favorite against Arizona and failed to cover. The Ravens actually had the ball at the Cardinals 5-yard line with 1:21 to play but decided to run the clock out.

The Ravens are 2-0, but failed to cover against the Cardinals

Pittsburgh was a four-point favorite at home against Seattle, but fell victim to the upset. The Seahawks won 28-26. It was one of five upsets in Week 2. Detroit got a 31-yard Matthew Stafford TD pass with 7:21 to play to beat the Chargers who were 2.5-point favorites.

Julio Jones turned a short pass into a 54-yard touchdown and the Falcons beat Philadelphia, a 1-point favorite. Tampa Bay beat Carolina in Charlotte. The Panthers were 6.5-point favorites. Tennessee was a 3-point favorite but lost to Indianapolis 19-17.

INJURIES & FANTASY

The big news from Week 2 revolves around injuries, especially those suffered by quarterbacks. Fantasy owners will want to act quickly as Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger is out for the season. Roethlisberger suffered an elbow injury that will require surgery.

Brees' injury will sideline him 6-8 weeks

Brees’ injury will sideline him 6-8 weeks

New Orleans will be without Drew Brees who injured the thumb on his throwing hand. While not as serious as Roethlisberger, Brees will have surgery to repair the damage and will miss at least six weeks. Both injuries will surely affect betting lines in the weeks to come. Bookie software can help aspiring bookmakers track those changes.

CONTEST UPDATES

Five entries in the Westgate SuperContest remain unbeaten at 10-0 – Phat Cat, Dead Last, TUCO, The 801 Crew, and Rabbit Hunting. All five bet on Cleveland and the New York Jets. Another five entries went 5-0 for the week to remain 9-1 on the season.

The most picked game in the Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest was the Steelers at -4. Mikeybarts 1-1 and Mikeybarts 1-2 remain tied at the top of the leaderboard with 9.5 points. Four other entries are tied for third with 9.0 points.

Two teams remain tied for first in the Golden Nugget Ultimate Football Challenge. Rizzo (11-1-2) and Cuseboy (12-2-0) each have 12 points out of a possible 14. Cousin Sal went a perfect 7-0 in Week 2 choosing the following: Houston Cougars +7, West Virginia +6.5, Temple+7, Oklahoma -22.5, Kansas City -7.5, Denver +2.5, and Atlanta +1.5. Last year’s champion Monsterloc sits in 13th place.

A Look at Your Best Bets for NFL Week 2

by Wager Home on September 14, 2019

After Week 1 of the new NFL season, you are going to hear it all. The Dolphins are no better than an average college team. The Bears might never score again. Atlanta’s horrible and Lamar Jackson is going to win the league’s MVP award. Your bookie software might be going a little hyperactive, but don’t worry it will calm down. We’ll have a look at your best bets for NFL Week 2. We learned plenty in Week 1 and we’ve seen plenty of line action as we head into Week 2.

Patriots-Dolphins Movement

After last week’s fiasco – a 59-10 loss to Baltimore – the Dolphins opened as 15-point underdogs against New England. If sportsbooks were thinking the +15 would be enough to get the sharps betting on Miami, they were mistaken. The line has moved as high as +19.5 at Matchbook.

The Pats are as high as a 19.5-point favorite

The Pats are as high as a 19.5-point favorite

Fun fact: no team in the Super Bowl era has ever been favored by more than 18 points playing on the road before October. The Patriots are the first. There have been two 18-point favorites, one in 1969 and the other in 1970. On both occasions, the underdog was shut out and failed to cover.

Easy on the Ravens Love

Lamar Jackson had a great day last week. He threw five touchdown passes and Baltimore rolled up nearly 650 yards of total offense. They also did it against what is likely the worst defense in the NFL. The Ravens opened as a 13-point favorite and the line has not moved much.

What has shifted is the Total.

After opening at 42.5, the Total shot up to 46.5 where it currently sits at most of the top online sportsbooks. The Cardinals defense gave up 27 points to Detroit last week, while rookie QB Kyler Murray led a furious comeback to produce 27 points for Arizona.

Hey, mix the Ravens and Cardinals together and you see why the sharps are betting the Over.

 


Don’t miss any of our new Wagerhome blog content. We will be posting a minimum of three articles a week, focused on you, the bettor.


 

Rematch

The Saints and Rams meet once again in a rematch of last year’s NFC title game.

The infamous Saints no-call

The infamous Saints no-call

In regular season games, the home team has won this game on the past six occasions. That includes last year’s 45-35 Saints win in New Orleans. It’s no surprise then that the Rams opened as 2.5-point favorites.

The Total opened at 54, but was pushed down as low as 52 by early betting action. Both teams can push the pace on offense. Last season, the Rams and Saints finished second and third in the league, respectively, in scoring. Expect a lot of points and keep in mind that New Orleans is 21-8 ATS when playing as an underdog.

QB Issues

With the right pay per head service, you can sit back and relax even as some lines go crazy, like those with the Browns and Jets. Cleveland opened as a three-point favorite on the road, but after a poor performance last Sunday, the line dropped to -2.5. Concerns over Jets RB Le’Veon Bell and LB C.J. Mosley moved the line back to 3.0.

Then, it got seemingly worse for the Jets. Quarterback Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mono and is out indefinitely. That means backup Trevor Siemian will start. Lines shifted dramatically with the Browns now a 6.5-point favorite. If Bell and Mosley play, this could be interesting. The last time Cleveland was favored on the road by at least five points was 1995.

Yes, Bill Belichick was the Browns head coach.

NFL Week 1 2019 | Week in Review

by Wager Home on September 10, 2019

If only we could all start our own bookie website. Action from Week 1 of the NFL was fierce, and plenty of bettors and bookies alike walked home with a little extra in their wallets. Now we bring you the NFL Week 1 in review.

Well, almost everyone.

Adam Vinatieri’s missed extra point early in the Colts-Chargers game proved to be a difference-maker in the game ending as a push.

Five underdogs stepped up and won in Week 1 starting with the NFL’s kickoff game in Chicago. Green Bay went in and gave the Bears a dose of their own medicine in a 10-3 Packers win. Green Bay was one of four road dogs – Buffalo, Tennessee, and San Francisco – that won in Week 1. Oakland, a three-point underdog with the Antonio Brown saga finally solved, went on to pound Denver at home on Monday night.

New England, a 5.5-point favorite over the Steelers absolutely pounded Pittsburgh and won by 30. Similarly, the Ravens made Miami look like a high school defense in putting up 59 points easily covering the seven-point spread.

Minnesota, Kansas City, and Dallas all covered. The Chiefs and Cowboys got big days from their quarterbacks – Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott – while the Vikings ran the ball 38 times for 172 yards in a 28-12 win over Atlanta.

Prescott went 25 for 32 with 405 yards and 4 TDs in Week 1

Prescott went 25 for 32 with 405 yards and 4 TDs in Week 1

Injury Update

Probably the biggest news on the injury wire from Week 1 was the Chiefs loss of WR Tyreek Hill. Hill, who had some offseason legal difficulties, hurt a shoulder early in Kansas City’s win over Jacksonville on Sunday. Hill will likely miss several weeks, but it doesn’t appear that he will be placed on injured reserve.

In the same game, Jaguars QB Nick Foles broke his left clavicle in the first quarter and was replaced by rookie Gardner Minshew. Foles will have surgery and will probably be placed on injured reserve and will be expected to return late in the season.

Other injuries in Week 1 that could affect any budding pay per head business include both Baker Mayfield and Mahomes. Mayfield bruised his right wrist and Mahomes suffered a sprained ankle. Neither should miss any time. Colts WR Devin Funchess may have a broken collarbone. Bengals RB Joe Mixon suffered an injury to his right ankle against Seattle and Chargers WR Mike Williams hurt a knee in the second half of their win over Jacksonville.

Latest Fantasy News

Hopefully fantasy football owners drooling over Tyreek Hill were smart enough to draft Sammy Watkins as a backup. With Hill out, Watkins became Mahomes go-to guy and ended up with nine catches, 198 yards, and three touchdowns.

Those with Foles as their starting quarterback (or even as a backup) will have to scramble. Foles’ backup, Minshew, actually played pretty well completing 22-of-25 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. He will become the starter until Foles returns.

Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster is now questionable for Week 2. Add him to the list of Foles, Mixon, Tevin Coleman, and Derrius Guice. For those scouring waiver wires, take a long look at guys like WR Marquise Brown and RB Malcolm Brown.

Brown, the receiver, caught two touchdown passes from Lamar Jackson in Baltimore and Brown the running back had 53 yards on 11 carries backing up Todd Gurley for the Rams. Before we move on, don’t miss our latest social media posts, and follow us on Twitter @Wagerhome today!

NFL: Lookahead Week 1 Betting Preview by Wagerhome.com

NFL: Lookahead Week 1 Betting Preview

 

With the NFL preseason now fully underway and the first meaningful contest inside a month, another NFL season ripe with sports betting opportunity is upon us. The league’s extreme popularity has forced most on and offshore sportsbooks pay per head to post Week 1 many months in advance, in addition to season win totals and other season-long props. With preseason games already complete, teams are starting to take form and the lines are already starting to tighten. Let’s look at some of the first week’s games and see where the edges still exist.

Week 1 NFL

 

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky indicated improvement throughout the 2018 season, but I’m still not buying totally in. For the Packers, it’s been another dramatic offseason for Aaron Rodgers who has been forced to yet again defend himself and his character in the media for seemingly the entire spring and summer. Assuming no incident in what should be limited preseason action, Rodgers should be fully healthy for the first time since this time last year and as good as the Bear’s defense was last year and should be this season, I’ll still take a healthy Rodgers when it counts. As September approaches, I think this line also dips to below a field goal with the public jumping on Green Bay.

Los Angeles Rams (-3) @ Carolina Panthers

 

The last time we saw an NFL game that mattered, we witnessed Sean McVay and his Rams get one of the worst coaching beat-downs in the history of the Super Bowl. The offensive strategist McVay has now been given the entire offseason to prepare for what has been a one-dimensional Cam Newton-lead team with an aging roster and simple-minded Ron Rivera. In this one, give me the team that’s better on both sides of the ball and undoubtedly in the coaching department. Currently sitting at -3, I could see this point spread dipping to below a field goal by kickoff and might be worth waiting on.

Indianapolis Colts (+3) @ Los Angeles Chargers

 

This line originally opened as high as Colts +3.5 and has since been bet down to where it sits now. As week one approaches, I see the number continuing to dip, pending any injuries in training camp or a preseason game. The Colts finished off the 2018 campaign as one of the hottest in the NFL, winning 10 of their last 12 games including a blowout win in the playoffs game against the Texans. Most offshore and local sportsbooks also have the Colts as one of their top teams to win Super Bowl LIV at +1400, with the Chargers closer to +1600. With little to no field advantage yet again, I expect the Colts to be able to take advantage of this opening spot in LA.
