The 2024-25 NFL season kicks off with a special edition of Sunday Night Football on Thursday, Sept. 5, and we share NFL odds from the best sports betting sites for each week's matchup and offer betting tips to help you dominate your SNF wagers this year.

The first edition of Sunday Night Football for the 2024-25 NFL season will be played Thursday, Sept. 5, when the Baltimore Ravens visit the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC championship rematch that'll be aired on NBC at 8:20 p.m. ET. We've already broken down the Ravens vs. Chiefs odds for Week 1 here, with the Chiefs as moderate favorites at home.

The Ravens and Chiefs are among the top favorites by the Super Bowl odds, and quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are primary contenders by the NFL MVP odds, so this season opener is expectedly to be one of the top matchups for the entire 2024-25 NFL season.

The second dose of Sunday Night Football in Week 1 pits the Los Angeles Rams against the Detroit Lions - with this one actually on Sunday night. The Lions are 3-point home favorites. See our look at the full NFL Week 1 odds for more.

There'll be much more to come on these matchups over the rest of the offseason and through the preseason, and below we'll look at the very early odds for this matchup as well as Sunday Night Football odds from our best NFL betting sites for the full season.

Sunday Night Football odds Week 1: Ravens vs. Chiefs

  • Point spread: Ravens +3 (-110 via DraftKings), Chiefs -2.5 (-115 via BetMGM)
  • Moneyline: Ravens +135 (via Caesars), Chiefs -145 (via BetMGM)
  • Over/Under: Over 45.5 (-110 via FanDuel), Under 47.5 (-110 via DraftKings)

The Chiefs return their Super Bowl-winning core, including Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce, defensive lineman Chris Jones, and head coach Andy Reid. Meanwhile, the Ravens bid farewell to several star defensive players this offseason with their marquee addition being veteran running back Derrick Henry.

We're not expecting these odds and/or lines to move much between now and September, barring injuries or any other major developments this offseason. And it's also safe to expect this to be one of the most-bet games of the entire 2024-25 campaign.

Sunday Night Football betting tips

Get an early start

The Sunday Night Football game is one of the most popular betting events of the week – which means plenty of action, and line movement to match. Start monitoring the lines and totals as soon as they become available; if they move in a favorable direction, you can wait. If you see movement away from your position, consider pulling the trigger earlier.

Embrace in-game betting

While you might struggle to find value in the most popular markets for any marquee prime-time NFL game, you're sure to unearth some worthwhile plays once the game starts. Live betting might not be your thing when there are a handful of games going on at the same time, but Sunday Night Football is the perfect time to lay into some live action via our best live betting sites.

Be wary of winter weather

Night games can get downright bone-chilling – and there are two games in particular that NFL bettors should monitor closely: Week 13's two tilts between the Dolphins and Packers at Lambeau Field, and the 49ers-Bills matchup at Highmark Stadium. Check out our guide on how to bet on the NFL for suggestions on how to approach betting on cold-weather games.
