NFL Betting: Eight Weeks Until Kickoff

The NFL kicks off in eight weeks with a Wednesday night showdown that will set the tone for the NFC East division this season.


The defending-champion Giants are 3-point (-120) home favorites over the visiting Cowboys, a relatively small number considering that New York has covered the spread in four of its last five games against Dallas. As well, the defending Super Bowl champions are sitting at 9-2-1 ATS in their season opener over the past dozen years.

Bills steam
Fading the Jets is a popular angle in their Week 1 home game against the Bills. The Jets opened as 6-point home favorites at BetOnline, but shrinkage has set in. The Jets are now giving just 3.5 points to the supposedly improved Bills.
Ravens deadly early
John Harbaugh excels at getting his team to play its best coming out of the gates. The Ravens are 9-3 against the spread in September under Harbaugh. Baltimore hosts Cincinnati in the first game of a Monday night doubleheader in Week 1, and the Ravens are 6-point favorites for the contest.
Odds & Ends
-- At 11/2 the Packers are the favorites to win the Super Bowl at most books, followed by the Patriots (6/1) and 49ers (19/2).
-- BetOnline is offering an interesting prop bet on Peyton Manning: How many games before he is sidelined due to injury? The Over/Under is set at 8.5 games, but the Over is juiced heavily at -172.
