Jordan Love takes over at QB1 for the Packers. Green Bay shipped Aaron Rodgers to the Jets over the offseason, signifying a changing of the guard in Green Bay. Early in training camp, the Bengals received a slight scare with a Joe Burrow calf injury. The club could be even more cautious than normal during the preseason as a result.   

New York Giants vs. Detroit Lions

Giants spread

Lions spread
Lions moneyline
Total pointsOver/Under

The Giants were another surprising playoff team a season ago. The club is hoping to take even bigger steps forward in year two of the Brian Daboll era. The Lions have been the source of a lot of offseason buzz. The club is the current favorite to win the NFC North after just missing out on the postseason last time around.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Miami Dolphins

Falcons spread
Falcons moneyline
Dolphins spread
Dolphins moneyline

The Falcons closed last season at 7-10 and out of the playoffs. The club drafted Bijan Robinson in the first round, and the expectation is that a run-heavy approach is on the way. The Dolphins gave the Bills a test before coming up short in a playoff loss. The offense was explosive at times last season, and it could be more of the same this year.  

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Steelers had a dreadful start last season but managed to turn things around at the end to finish with a record of 9-8.

Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask are battling for the starting gig during the preseason.

Sean Payton has the task of righting the ship in Denver. The club disappointed last season with a record of 5-12. Russell Wilson’s first season as Denver’s QB did not go as planned. The Cardinals also have a new head coach, as Jonathan Gannon is now on the sidelines. Over the offseason, the club parted ways with DeAndre Hopkins

Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills

Shane Steichen is the new head coach in Indianapolis. The club hopes to have found its franchise QB after selecting Anthony Richardson in round one, while rumblings persist that the franchise’s relationship with Jonathan Taylor has soured. The Bills enter another season as a top Super Bowl contender.

Tennessee Titans vs. Chicago Bears

Titans spread
Titans moneyline
Bears spread

Total pointsOver/Under

A disastrous seven-game losing streak led to the Titans being on the outside looking in at the postseason. The club has brought DeAndre Hopkins to town in a bid to further open up its offense. The Bears were one of the league’s worst last season at 3-14 and earned the top pick in the NFL Draft as a result, but they ultimately traded the selection to the Panthers. 

New York Jets vs. Carolina Panthers

The Jets landed Aaron Rodgers from the Packers in one of the offseason’s biggest stories. The move quickly vaulted New York up the ranks in Super Bowl futures odds. It’s a new era in Carolina. Frank Reich has taken over as the head coach, and the club selected QB Bryce Young with the first overall draft pick.  

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Dallas Cowboys

Jaguars spread

The first year of the Doug Pederson era was a success in Jacksonville as the club won the AFC South. The Jaguars then clipped the Chargers in the opening round of the playoffs before falling to the Chiefs. The offseason has been relatively quiet for a Cowboys team that went 12-5 and advanced to the divisional round last year.   

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Baltimore Ravens

Eagles spread

After coming up just short against the Chiefs, the Eagles head to the new campaign as one of the top favorites to win it all.

The Ravens have signed Lamar Jackson to a long-term deal and bolstered their offense with the signing of Odell Beckham Jr., among others.   

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Los Angeles Rams

The battle of SoFi Stadium tenants closes out the Saturday preseason slate. The Chargers’ season came to a close in crushing fashion as the team failed to hold onto a 27-0 lead over the Jaguars in the wild card round, falling by a score of 31-30. The Rams entered last year as defending champions but slogged through an injury-plagued 5-12 campaign.  

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints

The defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs enter the new season as the favorites to win it all once again. Patrick Mahomes is also the current betting favorite among NFL MVP odds.

The final game of NFL preseason Week 1 pairs up two teams with differing expectations. The 49ers are once again a top Super Bowl favorite, but there is uncertainty about who will be the starting QB on opening day. Meanwhile, not much is expected out of the Raiders. Former San Francisco QB Jimmy Garoppolo is now suiting up for Las Vegas.

What bets are available for NFL preseason games? 

The betting options for the preseason are limited when compared to the regular season. The main attractions are the big three bets: moneyline, spread, and over/under. Bettors who are looking for something more can explore the same bets for quarters or halves of the game, such as a first-half moneyline, second-quarter spread, or second-half over/under. 

You can place simple parlay bets, such as a spread plus the total, or even combine bets from multiple games on a single slip, such as moneyline outcomes from four separate contests. Player props generally aren’t available during the preseason due to uncertainties over playing time. Once we get to NFL Week 1, the menu will have many more choices.

New NFL head coaches making their debut

The preseason presents the first chance for rookie players to see the field in real, live pro football action. It’s also the first opportunity for first-year head coaches to make their mark. Over the offseason, five teams switched things up on the sidelines. 

Reich and Payton are experienced NFL head coaches, previously with the Colts and Saints, respectively. Gannon, Ryans, and Steichen are highly regarded former coordinators looking to turn around some struggling franchises. 

Which NFL teams had the best preseason record last season? 

As always, the past is no guarantee of future results. However, looking back to 2022, six clubs made it through the exhibition season unscathed: 

The Ravens were the only member of that group to advance to the postseason. On the opposite end of the spectrum, six clubs went winless in the preseason last time around: 

Five of the six members of this club made it to the playoffs a season ago, with the Commanders serving as the lone outlier. In short, preseason success — or lack thereof — is not necessarily an indicator of what’s to come when the games that matter get underway. However, the overall team approach to the preseason can make for an interesting research point when trying to make sense of what might happen during upcoming exhibition games.
