Dallas Cowboys (+3.5) @ New York Giants (47): The boys from Big D are going to have their work cut out for them in this, the first Wednesday night game in the NFL in eons. The Giants are raising their banner to open the season, and they aren’t going to go down without a fight.
Indianapolis Colts (+9) @ Chicago Bears (41.5): The Bears are clearly the better of these two teams, and they are going to likely be 1-0 when this Sunday kickoff on the NFL betting odds is said and done with. QB Andrew Luck’s first game as a pro won’t be easy going against DE Julius Peppers and all of the great pass rushers that Chicago has to offer.
Philadelphia Eagles (-6) @ Cleveland Browns (42.5): QB Michael Vick goes to the “Dawg Pound” for what should be an interesting clash with the Browns in Week 1. Cleveland should be debuting QB Brandon Weeden, and that might not make for the great game in the world for the hosts.
Buffalo Bills (+5) @ New York Jets (42.5): If the Jets are for real, this is a game that they really should be winning and winning easily. Still, Buffalo has a lot of hope this year, and there is no doubt that the team is going to be out for blood against a division rival on the road right away.
Washington Redskins (+9) @ New Orleans Saints (52): We think that taking the points on the NFL betting odds might be the way to go in this game right away. The Saints are going to have the offense to do some damage, and it’ll be tough for QB Robert Griffin III to keep up in his first ever game. However, he’ll probably get some help from a very underrated defense.
New England Patriots (-6) @ Tennessee Titans (47.5): This is going to be one of these tough games on the road for the Pats. Their offense should be good enough to score and score a lot in this one, but RB Chris Johnson has to know that he can run wild against this New England ‘D’. Plus, you know that the Titans are going to give the Patriots their best shot. The six points is a heck of a lot.
Jacksonville Jaguars (+3.5) @ Minnesota Vikings (38.5): This should be a good measuring stick for both the Jags and the Vikes, as they both look to make some strides in the right direction after disappointing 2011 campaigns. QB Christian Ponder and QB Blaine Gabbert were the two worst rookie quarterbacks last year, though one will start off their second campaign at 1-0.
Miami Dolphins (+6) @ Houston Texans (44): The Texans have owned this series since their franchise started, and this should be no exception. As long as both teams get out of the preseason healthy, this will be the case of a good Houston defense and a healthy offense going against a Miami team that, though is solid defensively, might have some real problems on offense with QB Matt Moore or rookie QB Ryan Tannehill.
St. Louis Rams (+8.5) @ Detroit Lions (46.5): These two teams had the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the NFL Draft not all that long ago. Detroit has done well with QB Matt Stafford, its former top pick and WR Calvin Johnson, its former No. 2. St. Louis… not so much with QB Sam Bradford, its old No. 1, and DE Chris Long, its old No. 2.
Atlanta Falcons (pk) @ Kansas City Chiefs (42): The Chiefs are trying to make a statement that they are the team to beat in the AFC West this year, while the Falcons are trying to do the same in the NFC South. This could be a great showdown to start off the season in Week 1.
San Francisco 49ers (+5.5) @ Green Bay Packers (45.5): The Niners nearly were able to go all the way last year in spite of the fact that none believed that they were able to do it, but this is going to be a heck of a challenge to start off the year. The Saints looked to be a great team last year, but it fell to start off the campaign in Green Bay, and the same might be true now that there is no way that the 49ers are sneaking up on anyone else in the league.
Carolina Panthers (-2) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (46.5): The two young guns in the NFC South are going to do battle in Week 1, and the winner of this game is going to have to feel really good about the start of its season. QB Cam Newton and QB Josh Freeman might really put on a show in the New Sombrero.
Seattle Seahawks (+2) @ Arizona Cardinals (41.5): Last year, Arizona and Seattle finished up their season against one another, and now, they’re going to start 2012 the same way. QB Matt Flynn is the newest starting QB in this division that is under the gun, a sight that was all too familiar for QB Kevin Kolb of the Cards last year.
Pittsburgh Steelers (+1.5) @ Denver Broncos (45.5): Oh, the storylines in this one! QB Peyton Manning has never had all that much success against the Pittsburgh defense, and now he gets to play in front of his brand new team in his brand new home in a building in which he has always played incredibly well against that same defense that he has always played so poorly against. Oh, and to make matters even juicier? The Steelers were bounced out of the playoffs last year by these Broncos on this field. It’s a return to the scene of the crime on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Cincinnati Bengals (+6.5) @ Baltimore Ravens (41): The Ravens just missed out on the Super Bowl last year, and there is no doubt that they are a stacked team with a lot talent on both sides of the ball. Cincinnati has a lot to prove this year to show that it was no fluke. Coming into M&T Bank Stadium and winning on Monday Night Football would do just that.
San Diego Chargers (-1.5) @ Oakland Raiders (47.5): It feels like the Raiders and the Chargers have been the two underachieving teams in the AFC West for years now. Both would love to get their seasons off on the right foot, and the loser knows that it has a long, uphill climb in the rest of this division this year.
