Schwartz’s Trench Report: Week 1 NFL Bets Based on Offensive Line Play

  • Former NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz offers his two best Week 1 bets based on the state of teams' offensive lines.
  • The Cowboys and Panthers had formidable units in camp, but enter Sunday with weakened versions.
  • The Jaguars-Giants matchup, on the other hand, will be a bloodbath in the trenches.

The Cowboys and Panthers opened camp with stellar offensive lines, but will kick the season off with their respective units depleted. Meanwhile, the Jaguars and Giants enter their Week 1 matchup with strong units up front.

So what are the betting implications based on the O-line situations in each matchup?

Here are my top two NFL picks for Week 1 based on the battles up front.
