When the Packers and Saints kick off the 2011 season Thursday, the point spread is just one of more than 100 ways you can bet the clash of the two most recent Super Bowl champions.
Sure the side bet is fun (-4.5 for Green Bay) and the total is a must-wager too (47.5). But it's prop odds that make the most noise and offer the most profit potential, especially for fantasy footbal gurus who really know their stuff.

The last two Super Bowl champs kick off the NFL betting season on Thursday when the Saints visit Lambeau as small underdogs to face the Packers.
And if history repeats itself, the OVER may be the best bet for the night as all five meetings since 1995 have soared way OVER the total (at least 55 points in all five games). [ Best Saints vs Packers OVER line currently at 5Dimes ]

It’s been nearly 10 years since the Indianapolis Colts were a 9-point underdog in a meaningful game.
It was Nov. 10, 2002 and the visiting Colts were 9.5-point underdogs against the powerful Eagles. It didn’t matter in the end as they rolled 35-13, but Indy backers find themselves in a similar betting predicament in Week 1 of the NFL season.
They were going to be road dogs in Houston anyway, as the number opened at -2 in favour of the Texans. But then Peyton Manning’s injury rehab crawled at a snail’s pace and the betting hit the Houston side at a feverish pace.

Two things seem to always happen when the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs lock up in NFL betting action.
The Bills always cover (7-2 ATS past 9 meetings) and the UNDER prevails (8-1 overall and even more one-sided favoring the UNDER going back to 1980 with 9 of 10 games at KC playing UNDER).
So is this a spot where the woeful Bills (rated second last in Super Bowl futures at TopBet) can cover the spread? They are 6-1 ATS in the past 7 season openers. And nobody is expecting much from the Bills, maybe this is a dangerous spot for Chief backers.
