Los Angeles Rams will take on Oakland Raiders in the first match. Cincinnati Bengals vs Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys vs San Francisco 49ers wind up the weekend. Here are the schedule, how to watch and odds of the three matches on NFL 2019 pre-season weekend.
Predictions for NFL 2019 pre-season weekend
This is the last chance for NFL fans to catch a glimpse of their favourite teams until next week. The NFL 2019 pre-season is ending its Week 1 and it has already been a treat for NFL fans so far.
49ers vs Cowboys
For the betting fans, in the first match of NFL 2019 pre-season weekend, the San Francisco 49ers are favourites. It started with three-point chalk but the line has adjusted by -4.5 SF as the home side is heavy favourites. The fans have bet as much as 73% on the home side so far.
Chiefs vs Bengals
In the other hot match of NFL 2019 pre-season weekend, Bengals are 4-1 against their spread in 5 previous games. Coach Zac Taylor is making debut for Cincinnati. Andy Reid, on the other hand, has a 38-42 record in the pre-season.
Raider vs Rams
The Rams have gone 2-2 in three consecutive pre-seasons. They have never crossed the .500 mark since 2011. The Raider won 3-1 in 2018. Oakland coach Jon Gruden has a commendable 33-17 record in his pre-season career. Rams coach, on the other hand, has a 4-4 record in exhibition matches.
"These days are better than a preseason game."

While Predictions are out for the 49ers match, it’s difficult to set them right in pre-season games. The pre-season games have the problem of rotational schemes, backups getting game time and teams not playing to their potential. 49ers coach Kyle condemned the long pre-season.
“You absolutely don’t need four preseason games,” Shanahan said, via NBCSports.com. “I’d rather have zero than four. Preferably, I’d like two. One to evaluate the people trying to make the team and then just one to knock a little rust off.”
