And cutting-edge BookMaker.eu has released odds for the 16 Week 1 games, so let’s take a look and make some picks.

NFL Week 1 Point Spreads, Totals for All 16 Games

The highest number on the week 1 betting board sees Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers as thick 9½-point chalks over the Browns in Cleveland in an opening weekend AFC North mismatch.
