Here’s a look at five favorites and five underdogs worthy of a closer gambling eye in Week 1.

NFL Gambling – Week 1 Favorites

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons
Week 1 NFL Spread: Saints -3

The Saints took a step forward offensively this season, and with the addition of Jairus Byrd to partner with Kenny Vaccaro in one of the better young safety tandems in the league, there’s plenty of optimism for the Saints’ season.

The Falcons have gotten healthy and should be improved over what we saw from them last season, but they’ll be outclassed by a strong Saints squad.

Chicago Bears vs. Buffalo Bills
Week 1 NFL Spread: Bears -6.5

The Bears fixed their problems on defense in the offseason, and their offense figures to be one of the better groups in the league once again this season.

That recently signed Kyle Orton is creating a mini-quarterback controversy in Buffalo is a great indicator of the kind of poor play the team has received at the position.

New York Jets vs. Oakland Raiders
Week 1 NFL Spread: Jets -5.5

The Jets’ secondary has been heavily criticized this offseason, but the team will be going up against a rookie quarterback in this one, and it’s hard to imagine Jets head coach Rex Ryan not going up with a scheme that will give young Derek Carr trouble.

On the flip side, the Jets added plenty of talent on offense in the offseason and it’s going to be fun to see what kind of damage they can do going up against a generous Raider defense.

San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys
Week 1 NFL Spread: 49ers -4.5

The 49er defense is in bad shape at the moment, but they are light years ahead of where the Cowboys are. Both teams bring strong offenses to the table, so there figure to be points in this one, but the 49ers should get a few more stops when it counts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers
Week 1 NFL Spread: Bucs -1

The Buccaneers were a disappointment a year ago, but that was more a product of the team giving up on outgoing head coach Greg Schiano. With Lovie Smith in town, and a healthy Doug Martin in the backfield, the Bucs figure to start living up to the hype.

NFL Gambling – Week 1 Underdogs

Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks
Week 1 NFL Spread: Packers +5.5

The Seahawks have been lights out at home in recent years, but looking back, one team that gave them a serious run for their money at CenturyLink Field was the Packers. In fact, the replacement officials were the only thing between a Packers win and the unfortunate loss they suffered.


Defending Super Bowl champions have fared well in the Thursday opener on their home field, but this could be the only time we get points backing the Packers this season.

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens
Week 1 NFL Spread: Bengals +1.5

The Ravens have been strong at home under head coach John Harbaugh, but they enter this season with question marks up and down the field. The team’s defense isn’t the elite unit it once was, and starting running back Ray Rice will be watching from the sidelines.

New York Giants at Detroit Lions
Week 1 NFL Spread: Giants +5

The Lions have been far friendlier to fantasy teams than they have been to bettors, but the public seems to have trouble separating the two. The Lions boast some elite options on offense, but they just haven’t gotten the kind of play from their defense needed to win games regularly.

A Giants team that seems to have taken steps in the right direction since the end of last season figures to make some noise in this one.

San Diego Chargers at Arizona Cardinals
Week 1 NFL Spread: Chargers +3

The Chargers really figured things out down the stretch last season, converting into a run-first team that hammered the ball between the tackles with reckless abandon.

That’s going to be a nightmare for a Cardinals team that will have trouble against the run this season with the injury of defensive tackle Darnell Dockett and the absence of both of last year’s starting middle linebackers, Daryl Washington and Karlos Dansby.

Washington Redskins at Houston Texans
Week 1 NFL Spread: Redskins +2.5

The Texans are far better than their two-win season a year ago would indicate, but this Redskins team figures to debut what could be a prolific offense in this one.

The Redskins have so much speed at the wide receiver position that the Texans may not be able to keep up.
