BetOnline, considered a fairly square offshore sportsbook, also posted NFL Week 1 lines on Thursday evening with a few minor discrepancies. Although the Falcons opened as 5.5-point favorites at the Westgate Superbook, the defending NFC champions opened as 6-point favorites at BetOnline. The Houston Texans, who still haven’t added a legitimate starting quarterback, opened as 4.5-point favorites at the Westgate Superbook and 4-point favorites at BetOnline.
The Green Bay Packers, who opened as 2.5-points favorites at the Westgate Superbook, are listed as 3-point favorites at BetOnline. That’s particularly noteworthy since “3” is considered the most important key number for NFL bettors.
We’ll be sure to post odds for the remainder of the season as soon as they become available. In the meanwhile, you can also check out the early Super Bowl <futures and major line moves. The limits for these Week 1 spreads and totals are fairly low, and we’ll likely see some major line movements as the regular season approaches and rosters become finalized.
