The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has released its Week 1 NFL odds, just hours after the league itself released on Thursday its 2016 Regular Season Schedule which kicks off on the night of Sept. 8.

when Cam Newton and the NFC champion Carolina Panthers pay a visit to the altitude of the Rocky Mountains and Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver to face Von Miller and the AFC champion Denver Broncos in a rematch of Super Bowl 50. Here are the Opening Lines and Totals for the 16 Week 1 games from the SuperBook along with a mini-preview of a Week 1 game and an NFL pick for the football-loving masses before the Calendar has even turned to May.


Can We Expect 2017 NFL Week 1 Lines to be Released Before the Actual Schedule?
So we have Week 1 NFL lines before the Kentucky Derby? What’s next, Christmas advertising in July? Maybe Snow in August? Clean Diapers before the baby’s Dump? NFL games to actually be aired on Twitter? The same day the NFL released its 2015 Regular Season schedule—last Thursday—the world’s largest sportsbook, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook here in Las Vegas, released its Week 1 Point Spreads and Totals for that week’s 16 games which kick off on Thursday, Sept. 8 at Sports Authority Field in Denver with a Super Bowl 50 rematch between the defending NFL champion Denver Broncos (18/1 to win Super Bowl LI, Bovada) and whomever their starting QB may be and Cam Newton and the NFC champion Carolina Panthers (NBC, Twitter, 8:30 p.m. EDT/5:30 p.m. PDT), an intriguing games on many levels with the Panthers (+850 to win Super Bowl LI, Paddy Power) to be tested by the Altitude and hostile Denver crowd right out of the gate. Are you ready?

And this Thursday Night Football game will air on NBC, but NBC and CBS will share the night (Thursday) and will both be simulcasting their TNF games on the NFL Network (TV) and Twitter (Social Media). So the more the merrier, right? What it means is that some lazy Nimrod will perpetually be asking you every Thursday morning, “Hey, what channel is the game on tonight?” as he holds a Smartphone in his hand that has the answer to every flipping question ever asked by Mankind in the palm of his stupid hand. But he must ask anyway. Perhaps by the third, or maybe the fourth time he asks (if you’re patient), you can gracefully take this person’s Smartphone away and swiftly make a deposit of it up the Dumb Asses’ Alimentary Canal. And of course, all deposits made in the month of April are Duty Free. Here are your Week 1 opening NFL Point Spreads and Totals from the SuperBook:


Thursday, September 8, 2016
Carolina Panthers at Denver Broncos (-3, 43½)

Sunday, September 11, 2016
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (-3½, 48)
Minnesota Vikings (-3, 42½) at Tennessee Titans
Cleveland Browns at Philadelphia Eagles (-7½, 46)
Cincinnati Bengals at New York Jets (PK, 43½)
Oakland Raiders at New Orleans Saints (-1½, 51)
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (-7½, 43½)
Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens (-3, 43½)
Chicago Bears at Houston Texans (-4½, 45½)
Green Bay Packers (-3½, 48) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Miami Dolphins at Seattle Seahawks (-7½, 45½)
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-5½, 49½)
Detroit Lions at Indianapolis Colts (-5½, 49½)
New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals (PK, 51)

Monday, September 12, 2016
Pittsburgh Steelers (-2½, 51) at Washington Redskins
Los Angeles Rams (-2½, 47) at San Francisco 49ers

Sunday, September 11, 2016
Miami Dolphins at Seattle Seahawks (-7½, 45½ on most NFL odds).
Russell Wilson (31-16-3 ATS at Home) and both the Seahawks Offense and Defense will be ready to get the Regular Season off to a good start so expect a good spanking of Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins (3-5 ATS Away, 5-8 ATS L13 Road Underdog) at CenturyField in Seattle in Week 1. The Dolphins (3-4 ATS on Thursday Night Football) were all full of promise last Offseason but failed to deliver both at the Betting Window (5-11 ATS) and for their fans in the Sunshine State. Richard Sherman, Bobby Wagner and the dominating Seattle Defense (17.3 ppg, #1 in NFL in 2015) won’t want to allow anything to start the season, and with Miami (66/1 to win Super Bowl LI, 888sport) traveling 3,299½ miles and losing 3 Body Clock Hours going from EDT to PDT (Florida to Washington) and this being the Regular Season opener, this is just an awful spot for the Fish and this number should probably be (and might end up being) closer to 10. The Final Scoreline in this one should be around Seahawks 31, Dolphins 13.
