One of the main reasons that the NFL is so popular is because it is also the sport which gets the most action in Las Vegas. Sportsbooks make millions of dollars each year on NFL bets.

With that being said, let’s preview some of the NFL Week 1 matchups where you should be able to make some money.

Must Bet Games in 2019 NFL Week 1

Baltimore Ravens (-4.5) @ Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are in rebuilding mode. They replaced Ryan Tannehill with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the quarterback position. They didn’t make any large free-agent signings. They really don’t have any established offensive weapons. With a new coaching staff, it could take some time for the Dolphins to adapt to the change.

The Ravens were 10-6 last season. They had one of the league’s best defenses last season, and through free agency and the draft, this year’s defense could be even better. We’re not sure what the offense is going to be like as the team has fully committed to Lamar Jackson, but they did score more last season after Jackson took the starting quarterback position. The addition of Mark Ingram will help with the transition.

With the Dolphins in transition, and not having a ton of offensive firepower against one of the league’s best defenses it could be a long day for the Dolphins. The Ravens will be looking to make a splash, so look for the Ravens to win by at least a touchdown on opening weekend. Take the Ravens!

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears (-3.5)

The NFL chose this game to open up the season on Thursday night. Last season, the Packers opened up in Chicago, and the Bears jumped out to a huge lead. In the second half, Aaron Rodgers spun his magic, and the Packers came back to beat the Bears.

We’re not sure what the Packers offense is going to look like under a new coaching regime. We do know that Aaron Rodgers will still be under center, so the offense should score some points. With an improved defensive unit, the Packers should be in for a good year.

The Bears offense will be in year 2 of Matt Nagy’s high flying offense. Mitch Trubisky will have a better grasp, the Bears receivers are all healthy, and they drafted a running back that is more suited for the offense. The Bears defense will be one of the top defenses in the league.

Even though they lost defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, they won’t miss a beat under Chuck Pagano. With the Bears having a better grasp of their offense, their dominant defense, and the uncertainty of what the Packers will bring on offense, take Chicago in this one. Over the last two years when they’ve been favored, the Bears were 9-4 against the spread. The Bears will also be looking to avenge their season-opening loss last season. Bear Down!
