Messi has two assists in front of star-studded crowd as Inter Miami beats LAFC

Lionel Messi had two assists in front of a star-studded crowd as Inter Miami defeated Los Angeles Football Club 3-1 Sunday night.

Betting on the NFL on a weekly basis can be a fickle endeavour as some of the teams near the bottom of the standings end up being against the spread (ATS) beasts and vice versa.

The past few years have been favourable to underdog and unders bettors overall, but will we see those weekly trends continue or new ones emerge?

The 2023 NFL season kicks off this Thursday with an anticipated matchup between defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and a high-scoring Detroit Lions team.

A new year of football means fresh opportunities to beat the oddsmakers, and with that in mind here’s an overview of the main futures markets for the upcoming NFL campaign.

Kansas City Chiefs +600 (win total over/under 11.5)
Philadelphia Eagles +750 (win total over/under 11.5)
Buffalo Bills +900 (win total over/under 10.5)
San Francisco 49ers +1000 (win total over/under 10.5)
Cincinnati Bengals +1100 (win total over/under 10.5)
Dallas Cowboys +1400 (win total over/under 10.5)

The AFC and NFC each have a trio of clear frontrunners hoping to fend off the other 13 teams within their respective conferences. A Super Bowl LVII rematch is currently chalk with Kansas City projected to come out of the AFC yet again and Philly favoured to win a second straight NFC title.

All six of these teams had at least 12 regular-season wins in 2022 and finished as the top six teams in terms of point differential. All have their starting quarterbacks and head coaches returning so cohesion is another common trait. The Bengals and 49ers were two of only four teams league wide to cover the spread in at least 65 per cent of games in 2022.
