LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – The Week 1 odds are out for the NFL and point spreads are already moving in Vegas.

The Falcons, meanwhile, opened as a 1-point favorite over division rival the Saints, but that game has been moved to a pick ‘em with the current over/under sitting at 51.5 points.
The Vikings opened as a 6-point underdog on the road versus the Rams in Week 1 but that number has been bet down to 5, while the Steelers are 5-point favorites over the Browns after opening as a 6-point fave, while the Eagles remain a double-digit favorite over the Jaguars at -11.5 after opening at -10.5.
Continuing with Sunday’s Week 1 odds, the Jets are 4.5-point favorites over the Raiders while the Ravens are a 1.5-point favorite over AFC North Division champion the Bengals. The Bears, meanwhile, are 6.5-point home favorites over the Bills while the Texans are a 2.5-point favorite over the Redskins and the Chiefs are a 5.5-point favorite over the Titans. The Patriots are one of the few road favorites in Week 1 (at least right now), as they’re a 3.5-point favorite over the Dolphins while the Bucs are a 2.5-point home underdog versus the Panthers.
The first Sunday Night Football matchup pits the Broncos against the Colts, as Denver is a 7-point home favorite over Indianapolis. The Lions are also a 3.5-point home favorite over the Giants in the first Monday Night Football matchup of the year, while the Cardinals are a 3-point home favorite over the Chargers in the late MNF game.
These odds are obviously subject to change heading into May’s NFL draft, OTAs and training camp.
