2015 NFL Week 1 Opening Lines

2015 nfl week 1 opening linesThe 2015 NFL season kicks off with a Thursday night clash between the defending champion New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. Bovada.lv has released its line for the opener, making the Pats, who will probably be without Tom Brady, a -3.5 football odds home favorite over Ben Roethlisberger and company. A perfectly reasonable line — even with Brady’s status influx — considering the Patriots have outscored the Steelers by a total of 38 points in the last four meetings between the two clubs in Foxboro.

In addition to the season opening showdown between New England and Pittsburgh, Bovada has also released the remainder of its 2015 NFL Week 1 opening lines. On tap for the kickoff weekend are several noteworthy games, including a Colts/Bills clash to open the Rex Ryan era in Buffalo, a dust up between the Ravens and Broncos in Denver and a Sunday Night Football meeting between the Giants and Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

Indianapolis, an 8 to 1 pick to win Super Bowl 50, is a 2.5 point road favorite in its opener against Buffalo while Denver and Dallas are lined as -4.5 and -5.5 home favorites, respectively.

Per its recent custom, the NFL will feature two opening week Monday Night Football games. The first contest pits the Philadelphia Eagles against the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome; the Vikings and revamped 49ers will close out the evening at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco.

Dan Quinn, the former Seahawks defensive coordinator who replaced Mike Smith in Atlanta, and his Falcons are getting a point from the visiting Eagles. Jim Tomsula’s Niners are laying 2.5 against Minnesota, which posted a 2-6 road record last season.
