NFL Preseason Betting Lines for Week 1
The Seattle Seahawks demolished the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl last season, easily paying out for their supporters on the NFL betting lines. Those two teams will meet again on Thursday with lower stakes in a preseason matchup.
The oddsmakers at 5Dimes have Thursday night's Seattle at Denver betting matchup listed as a pick'em heading into the week, with both teams looking to begin their preparation for the upcoming regular season. Kickoff for the contest is set for 9:00pm ET, and Seattle is 4-0 ATS in its past four preseason games against Denver.
The Kansas City Chiefs are notorious for putting up poor ATS results in the preseason, as they're on a 7-30-1 ATS slide in NFL preseason betting action. The Chiefs are 1-point favorites for their exhibition opener on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 2-7 ATS in their past nine preseason road games.
Also on the Thursday night slate is San Francisco at Baltimore, with the game set as a pick'em at 5Dimes and the kickoff set for 7:30pm ET. Bettors will be eyeing the total on this preseason betting line, with the OVER going 9-2 in the past 11 Ravens preseason contests.
On Friday the Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to continue some recent ATS success on the NFL preseason betting lines when they take on the Bears in Chicago as 1-point favorites on the 5Dimes odds. That kickoff is set for 8:00pm ET, and the Eagles are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their past 10 preseason games.
Four games then wrap up the Week 1 NFL preseason schedule on Saturday, including Cleveland at Detroit with Johnny Manziel expected to get some playing time for the Browns. Detroit is 12-3 ATS in its past 15 NFL preseason games, and they're 1-point home favorites at 5Dimes.
