5 NFL Betting Tips that will get you ready for the 2018 Season

Look at The Additions and Subtractions

The first thing you want to do when you’re making preparations for a brand new season is to look at the offseason additions and subtractions of every team you plan on wagering on consistently. Let’s take the Los Angeles Rams for instance. After going 11-5 to win the NFC West a year ago theRams have improved their roster in a big way this offseason by adding a bunch of playmaking veterans that could very well put them into Super Bowl 53.

The Rams added perennial Pro Bowl cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib and still-feard defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh to a defense that was very good last year. Not only that, but Los Angeles also added wide receiver Brandin Cooks to an offense that was already super explosive last season. Make no mistake about it, these additions, while not having many subtractions, look like they’ll have a definite impact on the Rams in 2018.

Check the Schedule!

Another great piece of advice says that you should check the schedule of each and every team you plan on wagering on. Let’s just stay with the Rams for a moment. Los Angeles is tied for the fifth most difficult schedule in the league in 2018 as they get set to face a bevy of teams that combined for a .523 winning percentage (134-122) in 2017.

Clearly, Los Angeles will face teams that did well last season and this fact could affect the outcome of some of their games in 2018, even with an improved roster.

Remember The Recent Past!

Take a look back to last season and look at which team covered the chalk at a high rate and why and conversely, which ones failed to cover the spread consistently and why. For instance, if you look at the top five ATS teams in the league from a year ago (Minnesota, New England, Philadelphia, Kansas City and Buffalo) you should come to the quick realization that each team reached the postseason while four of the five, excluding Buffalo, all recorded double-digit winning seasons.

Check out what improvements – or setbacks – each of these teams experienced in the offseason and making your early season wagers accordingly.s

High-Scoring Offenses

Look for teams with explosive offenses and back them as your NFL Betting picks. Case in point…of the teams with the top 10 offenses in the league a year ago as far as yards per game, only the Los Angeles Chargers (No. 5) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 9) failed to reach the playoffs.

Offensive teams should be on your NFL Betting radar for the 2018 season.

Defense Wins Championships!

It was true 30 years ago and it’s still true today! Defense wins championships, even in today’s high-scoring, pass-happy times. Of the teams with the top five defenses in the league in yards per game allowed, only the Denver Broncos failed to reach the postseason.

No. 1 Minnesota, No. 2 Jacksonville and No. 4 Philadelphia all reached their conference championship contests with Philly, of course, going on to win it all. No. 5 Pittsburgh came up just short of reaching the AFC title – by losing to Jacksonville.
