The National Football League is going to start their training camp in the next couple weeks. That’s great, but what that means, we are going to have preseason games for a month, and fans are going to get antsy for the regular season games to get started. It’s never too early to start betting on the first round of games. Let’s take a good look at my complete NFL Week 1 betting guide.

Here’s a Closer Look at the Complete NFL Week 1 Betting Guide
