The first week of the 2010 NFL football regular season is nearly here! In order to get you prepped for all of the festivities, Bankroll Sports has our analysis along with quick rundown of all the week 1 NFL lines and everything else you need to know for the opening week of the year!

Where else could we start than with a rematch of the epic NFC Championship Game?!?! The New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings will get the season started with their opening game broadcasted on NBC. We now know that the Vikings are going to have QB Brett Favre under center, but there is still a significant question whether or not he is really ready to go. Favre took a beating in this game last year and after throwing no TDs and two picks in the preseason, there is reason to believe that this could be a long night in the Bayou.

The biggest favorites of Week 1 at this point are the New York Giants against the Carolina Panthers. The G-Men are favored by a full seven points. This is a rare week with a ton of chalk coming on the road, but double digit favorites will inevitably become avaiable for hosts again next week.

Brand new quarterbacks are going to be en vouge for various NFL teams in Week 1, the Panthers of which are one of them. In all likelihood, Matt Moore will be starting on Opening Day for Carolina, marking the first time that Jake Delhomme didn’t start under center for the team in a number of years. Speaking of Delhomme, he’ll be the new man in charge for the Cleveland Browns, who are three point underdogs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.

The quarterback changes continue in Pittsburgh, where QB Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for at least the first month of the season. With Byron Leftwich battling an injured knee, it appears as though Dennis Dixon is going to be given the task of leading the troops in black and gold into battle against the Atlanta Falcons. The hosts are rare underdogs at home, as they are 2.5 point pups.

The only rookie quarterback that is starting in Week 1 is Sam Bradford with the St. Louis Rams. Bradford, the team’s top pick in the NFL Draft, clearly outplayed QB AJ Feeley for the starting job, particularly in a road win at the New England Patriots in the third week of the preseason. St. Louis is hosting the Arizona Cardinals, another team getting used to a new quarterback. QB Derek Anderson performed well enough in the Cards’ exhibitions that QB Matt Leinart, once considered the future of the franchise, was released outright. Anderson and the rest of his Arizona mates are four point road favorites at the Edward Jones Dome.

Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins will be playing new QBs as well. The ‘Skins made arguably the move of the offseason by trading for long-time Eagles QB Donovan McNabb. McNabb’s Redskins were once 3.5 point pups to their rivals, the Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 1, but with McNabb still up in the air injured, the line has been taken off the board. For Philadelphia, QB Kevin Kolb is the man in charge of the team now that McNabb is gone. Kolb showed plenty of promise in his few appearances before McNabb departed, but the oddsmakers aren’t showing the Eagles any love. They are short three point home underdogs to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.

New Meadowlands Stadium will be opening with both the New York Giants and New York Jets will be playing in Week 1. The Giants will kick off against Carolina, while the Jets are going to be playing on Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens. The home team is favored by 2.5 points in that NFL betting encounter.
