Once the NFL regular season comes, we can finally feast our eyes on some exciting midweek football games courtesy of NFL Thursday night prime-time games.Thursday Night Football hasn’t offered up what many would consider attractive matchups over the years. That’s something Roger Goodell and the schedule makers took notice of leading up to the 2018 NFL betting season with a number of tasty matchups set to play out on the gridiron over the course of the first 15 weeks of the season.
Kicking the season off will be a rematch of the division round playoff matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. The defending champs held on in the closing moments to secure the 15-10 outright win and cover as 2.5-point underdogs to take one step closer towards winning the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl title. This time around, they opened as 5.5 point chalk.
Both the Minnesota Vikings ( +519 ) and Los Angeles Rams ( +498 ) are expected to have a say as to how the NFC shakes out in 2018. The teams will collide in the Week 4 opener on Thursday night in what will no doubt be a packed Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for LA’s first home prime time appearance. Kirk Cousins only threw for 179 yards and a touchdown against Aaron Donald and company last season.
The “Battle of the Bay” will be a good one to take in Week 9 when Jon Gruden leads his Oakland Raiders into Levi’s Stadium to square off against Jimmy G and the San Francisco 49ers. This will be the first meeting between these franchises since 2014 when the silver and black snapped a three game SU and ATS losing streak behind Derek Carr’s 254 yards passing and three touchdown strikes.
Every game from Week 10 on is going to be must see – no joke! You got Cam Newton squaring off against Big Ben in Heinz Field, the Packers and Seahawks in front of the “12th Man,” a good old fashioned NFC South rivalry between the Falcons and Saints on Turkey Day, those same saints marching into Big D to square off with the Cowboys, the Jags and Titans in what will likely be a pivotal AFC South tilt, and the Chargers and Chiefs closing the Thursday Night Football schedule out in Week 15.
Hope you’re thirsty, because Thursday Night Football is something you’ll want to take in this season instead of avoiding it like the plague!

NFL Thursday Night betting is very similar in many respects to Sunday Night Football betting and Monday Night Football betting with one notable exception. The game is not the only football action taking place.
Football bettor can also, bet on the Thursday College football featured game. There will be quarters, halftimes and oftentimes there will be props for each of the Thursday night football games.
Football has always had a place on Thursday, beginning back in 1920 on Thanksgiving Day. However, it’s been a relatively recent development that’s put a game on Thursday night from Week 1 through Week 16.
Thursday Night Football debuted 10 years ago in November 2006 as a sporadic broadcast and not a season-long occurrence, but the NFL’s ability to spread out the weekend’s action and offer another prime time game helped the Thursday night affair become more of a regular production as the years progressed. Now, there’s a Thursday night game every week.
With at least three days of guaranteed NFL betting action, bettors can continue to be more engaged throughout the week and Gamblers Palace provides the necessary game breakdowns to help you cash in, starting with Thursday’s action.
The model and medium for Thursday Night football has been ever changing since its inception. Originally a tool to promote the NFL Network, the games were limited to the cable airwaves for a time, but this season will be the first of a new broadcasting contract that will put more Thursday night games on the premier channels. Both CBS and NBC are set to broadcast five Thursday Night Football games, with NFL Network providing simulcast and covering a couple exclusively along the way. CBS will take most of the early season games while NBC takes over as the season winds down.
Playing every week on Thursday provides a special challenge for the NFL, creating short weeks for teams in action that night, followed by extended rest heading into their following game.
Of course, some teams do better than others with the change in rest and the abbreviated week of preparation.
For instance, the Indianapolis Colts have yet to lose a Thursday Night Football game in their history, going 7-0 overall. Against the spread, they’ve failed to cover only once in those seven games. In their Thursday Night action last year, they covered the spread as underdogs on the road against Houston, winning 27-20 in Week 5.
Dallas is the only other team aside from the Colts that’s recorded at least six Thursday Night Football victories, going 6-2 in eight changes. It makes sense that the Cowboys do well on Thursday. They’ve got experience taking the field on Thanksgiving Day.
Nevertheless, on the other side of things, the Lions are the only team without a Thursday Night Football win, though they’ve only played once on Thursday Night, despite being a regular on Thanksgiving.
That sole game was on December 3 last year when Detroit fell to Green bay, 27-23, at home, unable to cover the 2.5-point spread.
