The 2018/19 NFL season kicked off when the defending champions Philadelphia Eagles welcomed the Atlanta Falcons into Lincoln Financial Field last night.

Like last season, JustBet is offering the New England Patriots as early favourites ($6.00) to win the Super Bowl. The Pittsburgh Steelers ($9.00) have the early second-favourite spot, while the Eagles and Green Bay Packers share the third-favourite rank at odds of $9.50.

The eventual Super Bowl LII champion Eagles, who were offered by JustBet at $40.00 at the beginning of last season, proved all detractors wrong week after week (especially after losing QB Carson Wentz to a knee injury). The team rallied around QB Nick Foles throughout the play-offs and rose above their 'underdog' status to claim the title — leaving the overwhelming favourite New England Patriots in a tailspin. While it may be difficult at this time to spot a potential underdog that could take the title, the tantalising possibility of the returns on a $40.00 underdog cannot be overstated.

The start of the regular season means no more speculations. No more preseason games with zero starters and players who are trying to make the roster — this is the real deal. The trades and transfers are done (for the most part), the chatter takes a back seat, and now is the time for talent and effort. The dawn of another season also means renewed hope for all teams (and fans). All teams are undefeated and, like last season's Eagles, can move to the basement to the penthouse in six months.

With all NFL teams on full display this week, fans will be provided with a good feel of the Super Bowl contenders. Week 1 may be the start of the season, but history informs us that if a team loses the season opener, it is highly unlikely that they will make the play-offs. Since 1990, just 25 per cent of teams who dropped their opener went on to make the play-offs. The difference between 1-0 and 0-1 may seem minor, but the numbers don't lie. Last season nine of the 12 teams that reached the play-offs won in Week 1(same figures as the 2016/17 season); the exceptions were the New England Patriots (played in the Super Bowl), Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints. The 52 Super Bowl winners went 42-9-1 in Week 1 of their respective championship year, and five of the last 6 years saw the eventual champions winning their first game.

The JustBet suite of betting options on NFL games continues to offer very attractive odds from the very basic WIN or DRAW to the more exotic MARGIN OF VICTORY. Visit one of the over 100 locations and place your bets on the prediction of your choice for maximum winnings…… Get in the GAME!
