After weeks and weeks of waiting, the NFL odds are finally out for the first week of the preseason, and we are just days away from kicking it off! All 32 teams will be in action from Thursday through Monday, and the games are going to be hot and heavy for sure.

There are going to be a ton of new faces and old faces in new places to get used to this week. In the City of Brotherly Love, Head Coach Andy Reid will debut his brand spanking new secondary for the Philadelphia Eagles on the first night of football games in 2011, complete with Asante Samuel, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Nnamdi Asomugha. The Eagles will take on a Baltimore Ravens team which is going to try to figure out how to bolster its depth behind QB Joe Flacco in its exhibitions. The Eagles are three point home favorites.

These aren’t nearly the only home favorites around the 3-4 point range. In fact, 11 of the 16 home teams are favored by between 2.5 and 4.5 points on the Week 1 preseason NFL odds.

The biggest underdogs on the board are, to no surprise, the Indianapolis Colts. It has been seemingly forever since they have had a winning preseason, and we know that we are going to see very little of QB Peyton Manning. The St. Louis Rams are really an up and coming team and are still getting used to the idea of QB Sam Bradford being the face of the franchise. After beating the New England Patriots last year in Foxboro in the preseason, the Rams are seven point favorites on Saturday night.

There are going to be a ton of starting quarterbacks and potential starting rookies that are making debuts this week as well. The Jacksonville Jaguars will showcase Blaine Gabbert, the Cincinnati Bengals could be starting Andy Dalton, the San Francisco 49ers will surely give some time to Colin Kaepernick, the Tennessee Titans will have Jake Locker on display, the Minnesota Vikings will trot out Christian Ponder, and most importantly, the Carolina Panthers will turn to their potential savior, the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, Cam Newton. Veterans that are going to be with new teams of note include the Vikes with Donovan McNabb, the Arizona Cardinals with Kevin Kolb, the Washington Redskins with John Beck, and the Seattle Seahawks with Tarvaris Jackson.

Totals, as always, as incredibly low on the preseason NFL Week 1 betting lines. The lowest ‘totals’ are the 32.5s in the Pittsburgh/Washington game and the Tampa Bay/Kansas City game, while the highest is 35.5 in several different games.

Most of the moneyline prices are close as well. Save for the Rams and Colts, there are no favorites that are greater than -175 and no underdogs greater than +155.

There are also just two road favorites on the board on the Week 1 NFLX odds. The Green Bay Packers are two point favorites over the Cleveland Browns, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are favored by a point over the Kansas City Chiefs.

The week wraps up with Monday Night Football with the Houston Texans rolling out their new 3-4 defensive scheme against the New York Jets and their vaunted defense.
