NFL Week 1 Lines: Champs Getting Little Respect
As far as I'm concerned, its never too early to think about the NFL.
Some shops have posted early Week 1 lines. I'm not recommending on getting down on any at the moment.
However, I do find it interesting - and often informative - to compare these early "spring" lines to the ones that we'll see after the preseason is finished.
The opening night game features Baltimore traveling to Denver. The Ravens may be the champs but its the Broncos who are currently laying more than a touchdown.
Some other potentially interesting matchups include the Packers visiting San Francisco to take on the 49'ers and the Giants and Cowboys renewing their rivalry at "Big D." The latter is the Sunday night game.
The Monday night double-header includes another NFC East battle, as the Eagles invade the nation's capital to take on the Redskins. That's followed by Houston at San Diego in the night cap.
A complete list of the Week 1 odds appears below. Lines courtesy of Sports Interaction, as of May 1st.

The visitors hand the ball to ace Cole Hamels (8-1, 2.79 ERA) who comes in off a dominant outing vs. the Reds on Wednesday, allowing just one run off five scattered hits over six innings in the 6-4 win. Hamels’ peripherals are ugly though and it’s now just a matter of time before the baseball gods come back to strike him down as his 1.40 HR/9 and 3.44 BB/9 are both career worsts, while his 4.57 FIP is horrible. Hamels will be opposed by Yanks veteran CC Sabathia, who like his counterpart today, has opened the season strong, but who has also shown some “cracks in the armor.” Sabathia (5-4, 2.20 ERA) is approaching 36 years old and while he’s been superb to this point, like Hamels there’s plenty of tell tale signs that the southpaw is about to take a step back, as his FIP is a full point higher than his ERA and his xFIP (which is considred by most experts as being the best predictor for future ERA) is more than two runs higher. Also note that he’s a rather pedestrian 1-2 with a 3.58 ERA in front of the home town crowd this year. We’re going to recommend a play on the OVER in this one.
