NFL Lockout Delays Las Vegas Bookies from Posting Week 1 Odds

Probably one of the lesser appreciated damages caused by the NFL Lockout, the standoff is causing Las Vegas Bookies to delay publishing Week 1 odds.

 

With NFL owners and football players still in negotiations, the NFL Lockout is causing Las Vegas Sportsbook to delay posting NFL betting odds for Week 1. Most Las Vegas bookies NFL odds are ready to be published, as soon as the ordeal is over and an agreement reached. Others will probably show a more cautious approach, and post odds after reviewing each team in details.

 

Experiend odds makers agree that game totals will most likely be affected by the four-month-long standoff. Teams breaking in new head coaches or new quarterbacks will be the most affected, according to experts, since they barely had a chance to work together.

 

In this regard, we shall assume odds makers to adjust game totals to lower-than-usual numbers, which creates an irresistible opportunity for NFL sports bettors. So called "Wise Guys", the most experienced among punters, are the ones who typically have the better hand at the beginning of NFL season. However, this NFL season could become a real money maker for all NFL betters, even those who barely know how to bet on NFL games.

 

Even greater opportunities await all those wishing to go outside Las Vegas sports books. Most offshore Internet sportsbooks already have NFL Week 1 odds since April. Today we consider the odds for Week 1 posted at 5Dimes sportsbook:

NFL training camps will hopefully start early next week. This will allow Teams short time to prepare themselves for the exhibition season, let alone the regular season.

 

However, not all teams will suffer from the prolonged summer vacation. Defending Super Bowl Champions Green Bay Packers have their well oiled machine in place, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers veteran head coach, Mike McCarthy. Same goes for the New England Patriots, with the fully synergic duo Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

 

Betting the over on current game totals posted by offshore bookmakers for the matches featuring these two teams could help bettors take Internet bookies to the cleaners.
