Sportsbooks Set Week 1 Opening Lines For All Games

8th May, 01:55

NFL odds are out for all 16 Week 1 games and it begins with the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Houston Texans.

The Chiefs open the 2020 season on Thursday, September 3rd, and Las Vegas opened with the Chiefs as 10.5-point favorites.

Some of the other big betting lines of Week 1 include the Lamar Jackson and the Ravens hosting the Browns as 8.0- faves, and Philip Rivers opening up his career with the Colts as 8.0-point road favorites at the Jaguars.

Here are the rest:

For the people looking to learn betting, here is how point spreads work.

A point spread, or simply "the spread", is a sports betting number made by oddsmakers at sportsbooks that serves as a handicap between two opponents. Because not all teams are equal in skill, oddsmakers use spread betting to level the playing field.

Those odds have the Chiefs as the favorite to win. We know this due to the minus sign (-) in front of their spread. The San Francisco 49ers are the underdog because they have the plus sign (+) in front of their spread.
