The first truly large NFL preseason slate is upon us as six Week 1 games take place Friday night.
Sure, some may not be all that interested in betting on the preseason, but NFL odds movement shows that money is flowing on these games, so much so that oddsmakers are forced to make adjustments to spreads and over/unders.
NFL odds and betting market activity also flow into the Action Network's PRO Report, which helps identify the picks and predictions offering value across a given slate, even during the preseason.
With this in mind, let's examine the two smartest NFL picks for Friday's preseason Week 1 schedule, including Steelers vs. Buccaneers and Broncos vs. Cardinals.
