NFL Preseason Week 1 Unders Wagers Go 14-3 For NFL Betting

  • In the 17 preseason NFL games, the UNDER went 14-3.
  • For Week 2 of the preseason, the odds on the UNDER are all set at the standard -110.

LAS VEGASWeek 1 of the NFL preseason is in the books and there is a lot of knowledge to take away from it. Mainly, betting on the game totals for points in every game stood out the most for gamblers across the board.

Of the 17 preseason games (including the Hall of Fame game) that took place, 14 of them saw the Under hit. In betting terms, if a $100 bet was made on the UNDER for all 17 games, there would have been a profit of $972.74 made.

The only three games that saw the OVER hit were the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles, and the Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers.

Looking at why the UNDER was such a popular bet in Week 1 could have many contributing factors. A main point is that most starters for these teams only play for a handful of plays, if not less. It is also worth noting that some coaches use these games as a way to experiment with certain players and situations such as going for it on fourth down, not accepting certain penalties, and inserting different players in and out of lineups.

Fast forward to Week 2 of the NFL preseason and online sportsbooks have odds up and ready to go with the opportunity to bet on the UNDER once again. Of the three OVERS that hit in Week 1, the highest one was set at 36.5 points. Relating this to Week 2, the safer wagers to make on the totals would be on the UNDERS for games that have their totals set at 37 points and above.

Overall, with such a hot streak in Week 1,  NFL odds for the UNDERS in Week 2 could be the way to go for gamblers betting on the games and looking for a more profitable outcome.
