NFL Week 1 Odds, Must-Watch Games, Duds To Avoid

The much-awaited 2024 NFL schedule is finally out, and boy, oh boy, Week 1 is packed with must-watch, mouth-watering matchups that’ll have you glued to your screens. And if you’re a betting enthusiast, well, let’s just say the opening NFL Week 1 odds are juicier than Sunny D!

Kicking things off on September 5th, we’ve got the reigning champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, squaring off against the ever-formidable Baltimore Ravens. Now, don’t be fooled by the -3 line favoring the Chiefs – these Ravens are no joke, and they’re out for blood. Brace yourselves for a titanic clash that’ll set the tone for the entire season.

But wait, there’s more! In a groundbreaking move, the NFL is taking the party to Brazil on September 6th, where the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will battle it out in a clash of titans. Can you imagine the electric atmosphere as these heavyweight franchises duke it out on foreign soil? Talk about a globetrotting extravaganza!

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we’ve got a tantalizing rematch on September 8th. The Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams will reignite their playoff rivalry, and you can bet your bottom dollar that there’ll be fireworks. These two teams left it all on the field last time, and you can expect nothing less in this highly-anticipated grudge match.

Also, don’t miss Tom Brady’s return to the NFL with his FOX Sports broadcasting debut. He will be in the booth as the Dallas Cowboys face the Cleveland Browns. Both teams defied expectations during the regular season in 2023, only to fizzle out in the playoffs. Can either franchise regain its former glory?

September 9th brings us the potential return of the one and only Aaron Rodgers, this time donning the New York Jets’ colors. Can you imagine the hype as he steps onto the field against the San Francisco 49ers? It’s a clash of titans, a battle of wits, and a spectacle that no true football fan can afford to miss.

With all that action, are there any duds you should avoid? The Carolina Panthers are in New York to face the Giants, and with both teams lacking a franchise player, NFL oddsmakers have set the game total at a weekly low of 40.5. Also, avoid the Washington Commanders at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup. Fanbases of either team will be hard fought to stick through 4 quarters of what is expected to be a slog of a game.
