Preseason Football: Latest Odds, Trends for Friday’s 3 Games

Bet NFL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

What’s better than getting two football games to bet on yesterday? Try three more NFL preseason contests today to start your weekend off on the right foot.

At 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, the Titans travel to battle the Falcons while the Lions host the Bills. Then in the nightcap at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, the Cowboys play their second preseason game, this time in Arizona against the Cardinals.

For tonight’s showdowns, we’ll see a couple head coaches on the sidelines for the first time with their new teams, including one going up against his former squad. A few top-10 picks from the 2021 NFL Draft will be making their debuts as well.

In both of the early games, the favorite has flipped at William Hill Nevada.

Let’s start in Atlanta, where Falcons head coach Arthur Smith squares off against the Titans, where he was the offensive coordinator the previous two seasons. Julio Jones makes his return to Atlanta, though it’s unclear if Tennessee’s monster offseason acquisition will play against his old team. For the Falcons, No. 4 pick and tight end Kyle Pitts will hope to make a strong first impression on the field.

After opening as a 1-point home underdog, the Falcons (-120 on the moneyline) are now -1 over the Titans (even-money odds). There hasn’t been any movement on the total, as it has stayed put at 38.

Many William Hill bettors are rolling with the home team here. The Falcons are locking up 73% of the total number of tickets and 93% of the total dollars wagered among all spread bets vs. the Titans, as well as 65% of the total number of tickets and 84% of the total dollars wagered for all moneyline wagers.

There’s also alignment on the total, as the under is receiving 81% of the total number of tickets and 91% of the total dollars wagered.

The other team playing tonight with a new head coach and top-10 draft selection isn’t getting the same love from William Hill bettors.

Even though the line has flipped from Bills -1 to Lions -1.5, the majority of bettors are siding with Buffalo (+105 ML) over Dan Campbell, Penei Sewell and Detroit (-125 ML).

The Bills have garnered 58% of the total number of tickets and 54% of the total dollars wagered among all spread bets vs. the Lions, along with 63% of the total number of tickets and 53% of the total dollars wagered for moneyline.

The total has dropped half a point from 37 to 36.5, and the under leads the way in both total number of tickets (82%) and total dollars wagered (60%) for this clash.

Cowboys at Cardinals is the only preseason affair today in which the spread and total have each shifted by at least a point. Arizona (-145 ML) has been bet up from a -1 opener to -2 against Dallas (+125 ML), whereas the total has dropped a couple points from 40 to 38.

The Cardinals have snagged 73% of the total number of tickets and 75% of the total dollars wagered for all spread bets in this one, as well as 55% of the total number of tickets and 76% of the total dollars wagered for all moneyline bets. That is highlighted by one Nevada bettor who laid $11,000 on Cardinals -1.5 (-110) for a total potential payout of $21,000, the biggest spread bet for today’s preseason action as of now at William Hill.

The under in this desert duel has been popular too, as it has swiped 85% of the total number of tickets and 70% of the total dollars wagered.
