Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season is finally here. While a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles features a tough betting line, there are fortunately plenty of ways to get action on the opener.
This game is a rematch of the divisional playoff game which the Eagles won 15-10. As we know, Philly went on to win the Super Bowl from there, and the Falcons are now looking for a bit of revenge.
While the spread of the game has jumped quite a bit already, moving from the Eagles as -5.5 point favorites to one-point underdogs, we’re going to look at a few other betting options. With this being the first NFL game, there are a plethora of prop bets available, which is a great spot to potentially find an edge if you don’t love the spread or total options.
Let’s dive in and check out a few of the best prop bets, all of which come from Intertops.
