The Full List of 2013 Week 1 NFL Lines & Week One Odds Are Posted At The Bottom Of This Article

PackersAnd here we are at the start of the 2013 NFL betting campaign! The opening kickoff is right here upon us, and that means that there are plenty of NFL betting lines to discuss. Join us for a brief discussion of the NFL Week 1 pointspreads and check out how NFL line movements have looked as we have counted down to the start of the season.

Normally speaking, the defending Super Bowl champs open up the year in front of their hometown crowd. However, this time around, the Baltimore Ravens are going to be on the road. They are going to visit the Denver Broncos in a rematch of the divisional round of the playoffs last year between these two teams. There is no way that this game can be as epic as the game that these two played last January, but QB Joe Flacco is going to try to pull off yet another upset in what could be a great game. As interesting as it is, Baltimore is the biggest underdog on the board on the Week 1 odds at +9. This is a completely unique situation that you’ll probably never see again with the Lombardi Trophy holders underdogs by one of the biggest margin on the board in the opening week of the campaign.

5Dimes NFLWhen the calendar moves to the first Sunday of the regular season, there are going to be some tremendous games. There isn’t a single game that is featuring an NFL point spread of more than seven points. Not surprisingly, the teams that are the big favorites are the ones that were in the playoffs and competing for playoff spots last season, and the teams that are the big underdogs are all teams that didn’t get into the second season and weren’t particularly close.

There are a relatively high amount of road favorites in Week 1, though there is only one team that is favored by more than a field goal on the road. The New England Patriots, in spite of the fact that they are going to likely be coming into that first game without any of the top receivers from last year’s team, are laying nine points on the road to Orchard Park, where they have historically struggled with the Buffalo Bills. The Bills though, are using their first round pick, QB EJ Manuel in Week 1 of the season. It’s tough to think that he is going to be able to stand toe-to-toe with one of the best teams in the league. It’s not all that often you see a team getting nearly double digits of points at home all that often on the Week 1 NFL Vegas odds either. This line has had the most movement all week, and it isn’t even close, as New England has gone from an open at -6.5 up as high as 12.5 when QB Jeff Tuel was a possible starter, back to -9 where it sits now, and the oddsmakers could be in for a world of hurt in this game.

The Indianapolis Colts, in the second year of the QB Andrew Luck era, are laying a 9.5 against the Oakland Raiders in Week 1 as well, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are giving 7 to the Tennessee Titans.

Every other game on the docket enters this week with a spread of 4.5 points or fewer on the NFL betting lines.

Interestingly enough, all of the games that are involving a pair of NFC teams are relatively closely lined. The only game of the bunch between a pair of NFC teams that features more than a 4.5-point NFL spread is the clash between the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals. QB Sam Bradford and the gang are 4.5-point favorites hosting Head Coach Bruce Arians in his first game as the head coach of the Cards. Arizona will also be debuting a new quarterback, as QB Carson Palmer heads to the desert to try to resurrect the franchise.


There are some huge divisional games on the first Sunday of the season. The Atlanta Falcons are the favorites in the NFC South this year, but they are going to have a heck of a lot of company. The team is going to have to go on the road to the Bayou for what should be a tremendously emotional game against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are going to be happy to introduce Head Coach Sean Payton once again after coming back from his year-long suspension, and you can bet that he is going to want to send a message to the rest of the league by winning this first one against the team that hosted the NFC Championship Game last season. Interestingly enough, the oddsmakers think that these two teams are on level terms, knowing that New Orleans is favored by just the value of home field advantage, three points.

The Minnesota Vikings are 4.5-point underdogs against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, while on Sunday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys are giving a field goal against the New York Giants. Again, the teams in the NFC East are relatively close to each other in the eyes of the oddsmakers, and only be the fact that the Giants feature -115 at -3 can you really tell that they are they are considered to the slightly better of the two teams. QB Eli Manning is going to be excited to get this season underway, knowing that the Giants are essentially hosting the Super Bowl this year at MetLife Stadium. A win over the Cowboys on the road would be an awesome start to the season for the Super Bowl 46 winners.

The biggest game on Sunday though, features the Green Bay Packers against the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners started off last season’s run to the Super Bowl by going to Lambeau Field and beating Green Bay, a win that really set the tone for the whole season. These two teams last met in the postseason, a game in which the 49ers won 45-31. The Pack are going to want a tremendous amount of revenge on San Francisco, but they are going to have a tough time doing it at Candlestick Park, where the Niners went 7-1-1 SU and 5-4 ATS last season. Green Bay is going to get a 4.5-point head start from the oddsmakers though, and the hope is that that is going to be enough to at least snare a cover. If the team doesn’t get its defense in order though (the Pack allowed over 500 rushing yards in two games against the 49ers last year), there is no hope.

As always on the first Monday of the season, there are a pair of Monday Night Football games. The first of the two games pits the Washington Redskins against the Philadelphia Eagles. Knowing that Head Coach Chip Kelly is going to do with his offense is still impossible, and knowing whether QB Robert Griffin III is going to be able to play effectively is also impossible. That said, at least we know at this point that QB Michael Vick will be going against RG3 in what will be a clash of two of the most athletic pivots in the league. How that is going to translate on the field is still a mystery. Still, Washington is giving 3.5 points on the first Monday Night Football game of the season at FedEx Field, though the last time we saw the Skins on the field, they were getting beaten at home in the first round of the playoffs. Philly though, is coming off of one of the worst ATS seasons in the history of the league at 3-12-1 ATS.

The last game of the week pits the San Diego Chargers against the Houston Texans. This is the start of the Head Coach Mike McCoy era, and Bolts fans are going to be eager to take on one of the best teams in the league. This is a tough start of the season for the Texans, who are playing under the expectations that this will be a third straight year with the AFC South title. The Texans are going to be expected to be healthy going into the start of the year, which is why QB Matt Schaub and the gang are giving a field goal and a hook.

Totals are all over the place in Week 1, though the numbers are generally a lot higher than we are used to seeing after one of football’s highest scoring years in history. Only one of the 16 games feature totals of lower than 40. The clash between the two teams that had the worst two records in football last year, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to fight it out in the Sunshine State to start the season, and that game has a total of just 39.5. The Miami Dolphins and the Cleveland Browns, neither of which were all that close to the second season last year but both of which are hoping to take big steps in the right direction, also featured a total of 39.5 at the open, but that number has risen up to 41.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are plenty of 48+ numbers out there. The opening game of the season between the Ravens and the Broncos features a total of 48.5, while the same could be said for that big time duel between the Packers and the 49ers. The clash between Washington and Philadelphia starts off the year at 50.5.

The highest numbers of the week are in the games involving the Patriots and Bills and the Falcons and Saints. We are a bit surprised that a game between a rookie quarterback and a team with an entirely new set of receivers (New England/Buffalo) features a total of 51, even after the announcement that it was likely going to be Tuel quarterbacking in Week 1. With Manuel under center though, the game makes a heck of a lot more sense with a number this high, as the rookie out of Florida State looked good in the preseason until he was hurt. However, that number pales in comparison to the 54 between the Falcons and the Saints. That’s one of the highest numbers that we have ever seen in a Week 1 game, and this could be a heck of a battle right out of the blocks.

Complete List of Week 1 College Football Lines Can Be Found Below

Alabama Crimson Tide CheerleaderWeek 1’s college football schedule is just about set to get started, and here at Bankroll Sports, we are going to be taking a look at all of the games that are on the slate for the week ahead! Below, you will find a full listing of all of the Week 1 college football odds and betting lines, along with a discussion regarding some of the best games that are going to be on the Week 1 NCAA football schedule.

We’ll start right at the top on the first Thursday night of the season. The South Carolina Gamecocks are the only Top 25 team in action to start off the year, and they are going to have a tough game on the road against the Vanderbilt Commodores to start off SEC play. No one is really expecting to see Head Coach Steve Spurrier and company struggle all that much this time around, though the wonder is there whether the ‘Dores are going to be able to put up a fight in the unusually somewhat weak SEC East. Vandy is the home team, but as expected, it is a 7-point underdog to start off the campaign.

There are four new teams that are going to be playing their first FBS games this year, including the Massachusetts Minutemen, South Alabama Jaguars, Texas State Bobcats, and San Antonio Roadrunners. U-Mass starts off on Thursday night on the road against the Connecticut Huskies, and the fledging program is +25 in spite of the fact that UConn is expected to have one of the worst programs in the Big East this year. Also on the first night of the season, either South Alabama or Texas San Antonio will be getting their first win, as these two teams are playing each other in ‘Bama. The Jaguars figure to have the sturdiest program coming into FBS this year, and they are probably rightfully -6.5 at home. Texas State opens up on Saturday on the road against the Houston Cougars. The Cougs will be playing their first game without QB Case Keenum, but they are still expected to romp right through this one. The C-USA reps are -36.5, amongst the biggest favorites on the board.

The other showcase game to start off the season pits the Washington State Cougars against the BYU Cougars. This Cougar showdown is probably going to be a rather one-sided affair in Provo, but considering the fact that just four of the nine games on the first night of the season feature spreads of nine points or fewer, this shouldn’t be considered all that much of a surprise. BYU gets the nod in this one by 13.5.

Three games are on the college football schedule for Friday night. No one expects to see the Stanford Cardinal (-25.5) struggle against the San Jose State Spartans in their first game without QB Andrew Luck. The Tennessee Volunteers and NC State Wolfpack are going to battling it out in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome in a clash of middling teams in the SEC and ACC respectively. With the game being played in the heart of SEC Country, it is no surprise that Tennessee, opening up a very important season under Head Coach Derek Dooley, is a four-point favorite.

The key game on the Friday docket though, pits the Boise State Broncos up against the Michigan State Spartans. The Spartans have a heck of a schedule this year, and they are going to be in for quite the battle on Friday. This will be the debut for QB Andrew Maxwell, who is taking over for QB Kirk Cousins. Boise State has to undergo a massive change from the teams that have won just a slew of games over the course of the last few years. For the first time in four years, a quarterback not named Kellen Moore is going to be leading the troops out of the tunnel for the boys from the Smurf Turf. That doesn’t mean that QB Joe Southwick can’t get the job done, but he is going to have a tough time here in East Lansing. Michigan State is favored by a touchdown on Friday night.

We have seen some crazy start times for college football betting affairs, but perhaps we have never seen anything quite like what we are going to be seeing at the top of the mornin’ on the first Saturday of the regular season. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are going to be playing in the land of the real Irish, Dublin to be exact. The Golden Domers are playing in the Irish Motherland against the Navy Midshipmen in a 9:00 a.m. ET start. QB Tommy Rees has been suspended for this one for Notre Dame, but the Fighting Irish are still getting the nod by 17 points over what has really turned into a rather hapless Naval Academy football program.

The first game for the Penn State Nittany Lions since the finalization of the Jerry Sandusky situation could turn out to be a disaster. The Ohio Bobcats are coming to Happy Valley, and they are going to want to represent themselves well against a national power. PSU has had a ton of problems in this offseason on the field and off of it, and this is a dangerous game against a veteran team out of the MAC. The Bobcats are only six-point underdogs, but they definitely could be in for an upset when push comes to shove, and such a small college football betting line suggests just that.

As always on the Week 1 NCAA football betting lines, we have a ton of teams that are favored by just outrageous margins. Amongst them include the West Virginia Mountaineers (-24 vs. Marshall), Ohio State Buckeyes (-22.5 vs. Miami OH), Georgia Bulldogs (-37.5 vs. Buffalo), Florida Gators (-29 vs. Bowling Green), Texas Longhorns (-28.5 vs. Wyoming), Houston (already mentioned at -36.5 vs. Texas State), USC Trojans (-39 vs. Hawaii), Oklahoma Sooners (-30.5 @ UTEP), Oregon Ducks (-35.5 vs. Arkansas State), and the biggest of all, the LSU Tigers, who are -43 at home against the North Texas Mean Green.

That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some great clashes that are going to be played over the course of the rest of the day, though. It’s strange to be seeing the Boston College Eagles and the Miami Hurricanes playing this early in the season, but the two are going to be having at it for sure. No, these teams aren’t powers like they were in the Doug Flutie days, but both know that they are going to need a few wins in the ACC this year to reach bowl eligibility. With this one in Chestnut Hill, the Eagles are getting some respect, but they are still just one-point favorites.

That night back in Hot ‘Lanta, the Georgia Dome will be hosting its second game. The Clemson Tigers and Auburn Tigers are going to be fighting it out in what will look a heck of a lot like a potential Peach Bowl. In fact, these two have met in this venue a number of times before. The stakes could be higher this time around, especially for a Clemson team that is trying to prove that it can legitimately contend for a National Championship this year. Is it farfetched? Probably. But if the Tigers can’t beat the three-point spread in a neutral site game against Auburn to start off the year, there will be no doubt that they won’t be able to contend for much more than an ACC title.

But of course, the game of all games on the Week 1 College Football Schedule is the clash in Arlington between the Michigan Wolverines and the Alabama Crimson Tide. The defending BCS National Champions know that they are going to have their work cut out for them in this one, but they are going to hope to flex their muscles as they did against the Big Ten over the course of the last two seasons against Penn State. QB Denard Robinson has more on the line in this game than any individual probably has in quite some time. He is as explosive of a player as the Tide will ever see, and with a defense that could be doing some rebuilding this year, Robinson might be able to find some cracks. If the Wolverines can pull this one off, it would easily be the biggest win in the brief coaching career for Head Coach Brady Hoke, and it would really make the National Championship race this year wide open. Click Here for our Michigan vs. Alabama Preview, as it was the No. 3 game in our countdown of the Top 25 NCAA Football Matchups of 2012.

Most weekends, college football betting is said and done with on Saturday, but this week, there are still three more games to choose from. The two clashes on Saturday really might not be anything all that special. The Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals play their annual Battle for the Commonwealth on Sunday, a game which features the Cards as 13.5 point favorites. The SMU Mustangs are also going to be on the road against the Baylor Bears, who are prepping for life without QB Robert Griffin III. Baylor is favored by 10.5.

And finally, in what has become a great Labor Day tradition, the ACC opens up with its showcase game between the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The stakes are clearly going to be high in Blacksburg, knowing that the loser of this game is probably already going to be out of the ACC Championship hunt. With stakes this high, it is no wonder that this is one of the top games of the weekend even though only Virginia Tech is ranked in the Top 25 of these two teams. This should be a thrilling one that comes down to the wire, as the Hokies are favored by 7.5-points. This game is so important that it is also one of our Top 25 College Football Matchups of the Year, so don’t miss out on our Virginia Tech vs. Georgia Tech Game Preview.

The NFL Week 1 lines are always extremely tough to gauge, especially with three more weeks still to play before we reach the start of the games that count. This year, things will be even tougher, as training camps were shorter and rookies really didn’t get a chance to start playing until just a few weeks ago thanks to the NFL lockout. Still, these games are huge and are meaningful right out of the block.

The season kicks off on Thursday, September 8th with the defending Super Bowl champs, the Green Bay Packers hosting the Super Bowl winners from two years ago, the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are relatively hefty four point underdogs in this one, a certain sign of disrespect for a team that they finished with a better record than a year ago. If New Orleans is truly the better of these two teams, this will be a heck of a fight between two teams that are hoping to be in the NFC Championship Game this year.

This is the second straight season that the Houston Texans are going to open up against the Indianapolis Colts. Last year, Houston came away with a relatively easy 34-24 ‘W’ thanks to an absolutely amazing day by RB Arian Foster, who rushed for 231 yards and three TDs. This season, the Colts are in some trouble because there was no significant improvement in terms of personnel, and QB Peyton Manning now knows that he is out for at least the foreseeable future, if not for the entire season (as of Friday morning). Are his best days behind him? The oddsmakers think so, because Houston is a whopping nine point favorite on the Week 1 odds.

The week one schedule will also put the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers against one another. These two teams are almost always postseason clubs, and this year should be no exception. These are two veteran laden teams who hope to get back to AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs; where Pittsburgh ousted Baltimore a season ago. As always, this should be a hard hitting slug fest. Both road teams won in this series last year, with SS Troy Polamalu making the play of the game forcing a fumble on QB Joe Flacco. Think the oddsmakers know that this one will be close? The NFL week one odds have Baltimore favored by 2.5, the value of home field advantage against the Steelers.

Also in Week 1, we have a total of four nationally televised games instead of the usual two or three. We’ve already talked about New Orleans/Green Bay, but we haven’t spoken of the others yet. The Dallas Cowboys are four point underdogs at the New York Jets in what is slated to be the first regular season game back in the saddle for QB Tony Romo.

Monday Night Football features a pair of games, as the New England Patriots open up as 5.5 point favorites but have since raised to seven over the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium, and the Denver Broncos are three point choices of the oddsmakers at home against the Oakland Raiders.

There are only two teams that are favored by more than a TD in Week 1. One is Houston over Indianapolis. The San Diego Chargers are nine point favorites against the Minnesota Vikings as they hope to get this year off on the right foot after surprisingly missing out on the postseason last year.

‘Totals’ are generally a tad lower than usual on the NFL Week 1 betting lines. All but four games are featuring ‘totals’ of 41.5 or lower.

It should come as no surprise that the lowest ‘total’ of the week involves two of the nastiest teams in the league, the Ravens and the Steelers. These two almost always play games in the 20s or 30s, and this should be no exception. The oddsmakers have placed this ‘total’ at just 36, and if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, that number could fly down into the low-30s by the time the ball is kicked off.

The clash between the other two AFC North teams, the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns is set just a half point lower at 35.5. Though these two have a history of playing some higher scoring affairs, these two teams are just brutally offensively challenged this year. The Bengals really have no clue how to stay out of their own way with QB Andy Dalton and a host of running backs and receivers that truly aren’t all that talented, and Cleveland didn’t go out in the offseason and pick up any real help for QB Colt McCoy.

One of the highest ‘totals’ of all the NFL week one lines was the 46 hung in the Houston/Indianapolis game. And why not? These two teams have played three straight games to at least 47 points, and a number of games in this series have gotten into the 50s and 60s. However, with QB Peyton Manning now in doubt, that ‘total’ has dipped to 43. The highest ‘total’ of the week is the 47 posted in the Green Bay/New Orleans opener.

2011 NFL Prop Picks – Week 1 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Fantasy Football picks are here at Bankroll Sports this year, and we are going to try to make the most of your NFL props betting options at BoDog Sportsbook by giving you some of the best fantasy football sleepers in Week 1!

Houston Texans Defense vs. Indianapolis Colts
This is a relatively easy choice to make this week, but for a lot different reason than you think. Sure, Indianapolis is likely going to be without QB Peyton Manning, and we know that that means trouble for the Colts’ offense. However, the Texans are switching to this new 3-4 look of Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips, and the unit is as healthy as it has been in years. Don’t be surprised if there are just a ton of blitzes off of the corners and off of the edges, and if QB Curtis Painter is the man that is going to be throwing passes, he probably will end up getting sacked several times, especially if Indy is playing catch-up against the Texans’ potent offense.

DeAngelo Williams vs. Arizona Cardinals
It’s clear that the Panthers are going to run the heck out of the football this year, but more importantly, Arizona ranked No. 31 of the 32 teams against fantasy running backs. Williams just cashed in on a big time deal, and he is inevitably going to end up touching the ball a slew of times in this game. Will he end up getting to the end zone? That’s always the big question between he and RB Jonathan Stewart, but if you’re looking for a relatively consistent option against a bad defense this week, this is your man.

Jimmy Graham vs. Green Bay Packers
The tight end position is definitely a tough one, especially if you don’t have one of those elite tight ends that you know could be worth a gold mine. Graham has been a trendy pick over the past few weeks, and though we don’t necessarily buy into the hype for the whole season, we do buy it against the Packers. First off, it is clear that this has the ability to be a very, very high scoring game. Secondly, Green Bay ranked No. 29 in the league against tight ends last season. It’s no shock that QB Drew Brees loves using his tight ends down by the goal line, and you can bet that Graham is going to get his targets. Don’t be surprised if the former Miami Hurricane is in store for a big, big day to start the season on Thursday night.

Chad Ochocinco vs. Miami Dolphins
With WR Wes Welker facing his neck injury, someone is going to have to catch the ball over the middle for the Pats. It’s not like QB Tom Brady isn’t going to throw the ball at least 30-35 times in this one, and Ochocinco should be the subject of a lot of those targets. The Fins don’t have a fantastic secondary even though they feel as though they do, and with the ball being put up in the air so many times, some receiver has to get the targets. Many of you probably drafted Ochocinco in the middle rounds of your fantasy football draft, and he makes for a fantastic start this week on your fantasy team and for all of your NFL prop picks.

Week 1 of the 2011 NFL campaign is going to get underway this weekend. Below you will find the current list of 2011 Week 1 NFL lines and spreads along with a breakdown of the Week 1 NFL odds. Be sure to check out the free NFL picks from the expert handicappers at Bankroll Sports this week…

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.

2010 Week 1 NFL Lines; Week 1 Spreads Quick Breakdown

Full List of 2010 Week 1 NFL Lines Can Be Found Below

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.

Complete List of Week 1 College Football Lines Can Be Found Below

Most of the 120 teams across the country in FBS are set to kick it off between Thursday and next Monday, and here at Bankroll Sports, we’ve got all you need to know when you’re ready to analyze the Week 1 college football betting lines!

As always, there are a number of huge favorites that are going to be all over the board in the first week of play across the nation. The Ohio State Buckeyes, USC Trojans, Michigan State Spartans, Florida Gators, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Oregon Ducks, Alabama Crimson Tide, Oklahoma Sooners, Wisconsin Badgers, Georgia Bulldogs, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Clemson Tigers, and Auburn Tigers are all favored by at least three touchdowns will be likely coast to easy victories against their lesser foes.

However, not every game on the slate has such little intrigue. On the opening day of the season on Thursday, the Utah Utes and Pittsburgh Panthers will square off in a rematch of the first ever BCS busting game. The Utes became the first team from a non-BCS conference to make it to a major bowl game, and they crippled the Panthers that day at the Fiesta Bowl. This will be the first time these two squads meet. Second year men will be on display, as RB Dion Lewis for Pitt and QB Jordan Wynn for Utah will be at center stage.

Keep as close eye as well on the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders on Thursday, as QB Dwight Dasher might be able to lead the hosts to a big win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers. MTSU is a three point underdog but is certainly a live dog that might be worth backing.

The Connecticut Huskies and Michigan Wolverines will fight it out in the Big House in what could be a huge game for both programs. The Huskies are still searching for some respect, and Heisman Trophy candidate, RB Jordan Todman will be the main focus of the attack. This is a do or die year for HC Rich Rodriguez in Ann Arbor, and he’ll need to come forth with a good effort to start the season or risk the wrath of the media and boosters calling for his head before the Big Ten season even gets started. This is a game that Michigan certainly expects to win even though it is just a three point favorite.

There are two big time rivalry games to keep on your radar as well. The Colorado Buffaloes will meet the Colorado State Rams at Mile High in a neutral site game to determine the top team in the Rockies for another year. It’s a big one for HC Dan Hawkins, who knows that a second straight loss to a poor CSU squad will ultimately probably cost him his job. The Buffs are 13 point favorites.

It’ll also be a battle to see whether the Bluegrass becomes a red state or a blue state, as Joker Phillips takes over the Kentucky Wildcats and Charlie Strong starts his coaching career with the Louisville Cardinals. Both of these new coaches would love a win over their arch rivals to get the teams going in 2010, but only one will cover the NCAA football odds in this one. The visiting Wildcats are favored by 3.5 points.

Saturday night wraps up with a crucial tilt between the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Fresno State Bulldogs. We all know HC Pat Hill’s mantra… Anyone, anytime, anywhere. Cincinnati has no fear of coming West, as it did so last year in beating Oregon State en route to its perfect regular season. QB Zach Collaros will have a ton of pressure on his backside in this game, as he is taking over for QB Tony Pike. New HC Butch Jones is a 2.5 point underdog in this, his first game at U of C, but the Cats could scratch out a victory to open up their campaign.

However, Week 1 wouldn’t be complete without one of the biggest games of the entire year. The Boise State Broncos are probably going to put their BCS dreams on the line at FedEx Field when they take on the Virginia Tech Hokies in a “neutral site game” that is going to look at lot like Lane Stadium would on your average Saturday. The stars will be shining in this, the first Top 10 battle of the year. The winner will have a massive leg up towards the BCS this year, while the loser will already have their National Championship hopes dashed in Week 1. The Broncos have finally gained some respect against the big boys in the big conferences, as they are 2.5 point favorites in this de facto road game.
