NFL kickoff odds: Ravens at Chiefs

The Baltimore Ravens came up short against Kansas City in the AFC championship game, losing 17-10 in an effort plagued by turnovers. QB Lamar Jackson is coming off an MVP season, and expectations for him will be high again this year. Most worrisome for Baltimore are the extensive free agency losses, which included several offensive linemen and the team’s top edge rusher in Jadeveon Clowney.

The Kansas City Chiefs are riding high after winning a second straight Super Bowl. QB Patrick Mahomes is once again an early MVP favorite, though last season he had to settle for simply winning a second consecutive Super Bowl MVP title. The Chiefs lost offensive lineman Nick Allegretti to free agency but signed WR Marquise Brown and also added QB Carson Wentz to back up Mahomes.

NFL Week 1 odds and analysis

Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles

The Green Bay Packers exited in the divisional round of last year’s playoffs after pulling off a big road upset to eliminate Dallas in the wild card round. Green Bay is anticipating a strong running game after signing RB Josh Jacobs in free agency as well as picking up USC’s MarShawn Lloyd in the draft.

The Philadelphia Eagles are still hurting from an epic late-season collapse leading up to a lopsided road loss in the wild card round of the playoffs. The team went from a Super Bowl favorite that won nine of its first 10 games to a team in shambles by the end of the season. Losing longtime C Jason Kelce to retirement won’t help things, but the squad has focused on shoring up its defensive backfield this offseason.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins

The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off a 9-8 season that felt like a disappointment after expectations for the team had gradually crept up. The team exercised the option on QB Trevor Lawrence’s contract, keeping him in Jacksonville for the time being. Injuries to the receiving corps only contributed to the concerns there, but the Jaguars aimed to address that need by using their first-round pick to select Louisiana State receiver Brian Thomas Jr. in this year’s draft.

The Miami Dolphins were a Super Bowl favorite at various points last season but exited in the wild card round of the playoffs with a lopsided loss to Kansas City. Expectations will be high for QB Tua Tagovailoa after some of the eye-popping numbers he put up in the last campaign. The team added WR Odell Beckham Jr. to give him a solid third option in the passing game. The backfield is looking especially deep, with plenty of options at running back after injuries hampered De’Von Achane last season.

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints

The Carolina Panthers still have a young team with little in the way of proven talent, but there’s reason to hope for some mild improvement after the team won only two games last season. QB Bryce Young is headed into his second season, and now the offense has added South Carolina WR Xavier Legette to potentially give him a downfield threat.

The New Orleans Saints just missed winning the NFC South last season, but the team’s 9-8 record was still nothing spectacular. QB Derek Carr should have the benefit of some added depth at offensive line, but a key will be keeping RB Alvin Kamara healthy to diversify the offense. There’s some indications that there could be a competition between Jake Haener and Spencer Rattler for the QB2 spot.

Minnesota Vikings at New York Giants

The Minnesota Vikings went a disappointing 7-10 last season after struggling to find consistency at quarterback. As of now, Sam Darnold is at the top of the depth chart, but the team has made it clear that it’s in no hurry to designate a starter just yet after drafting Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy with the 10th overall pick in the draft.

The New York Giants suffered through a 6-11 season that turned into a parade of injuries under center. QB Daniel Jones made it back to the lineup just in time to be knocked out of it again, and the feel-good story of backup Tommy DeVito eventually met with a reality check. The team reportedly considered trading up for a top-three draft pick to snag a quarterback but settled instead for LSU WR Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick.

Tennessee Titans at Chicago Bears

The Tennessee Titans are coming off a season in which the team finished last in the AFC South with just six wins. QB Will Levis showed some real promise in his rookie season but is still dealing with the lingering effects of a foot injury that forced him out later in the year. The Titans knew they needed to improve protection for Levis, which is part of the reason the team used the seventh overall draft pick to scoop up Alabama’s J.C. Latham at tackle.

The Chicago Bears made some big offseason shifts after a disastrous campaign. The most notable move was trading QB Justin Fields to Pittsburgh, a deal that only netted the Bears a 2025 draft pick in the end. Chicago used its pick in this year’s draft to scoop up USC quarterback Caleb Williams, who is expected to be slotted immediately into the starting role as a rookie.

New England Patriots at Cincinnati Bengals

The New England Patriots are hoping for a fresh start under new head coach Jerod Mayo after last season’s disastrous 4-13 finish. New England used the third overall draft pick to add North Carolina QB Drake Maye, who’s expected to compete for the starting spot in his rookie season.

The Cincinnati Bengals dealt with quarterback injury woes of their own after Joe Burrow got hobbled early in training camp and recovered only briefly before having his season ended due to wrist surgery. Burrow is back among the MVP favorites for this season, and his performances while healthy last season showed why. Cincinnati just needs to make sure that’s more the rule than the exception this year.

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts

The Houston Texans had a breakthrough season last time out, winning the AFC South with a big assist from offensive rookie of the year C.J. Stroud at quarterback. Houston traded out of a first-round pick in the 2024 NFL draft but used its remaining picks to address needs in the defensive backfield and offensive line. Expectations will be higher this season, and a deep backfield including RB Joe Mixon could help.

The Indianapolis Colts are coming off a dismal 6-11 season. QB Anthony Richardson is still dealing with an AC joint issue, but the team has added Joe Flacco as a backup, as the veteran continues to find his niche as a viable one-man rescue squad. Indianapolis used a first-round pick to scoop up edge rusher Laiatu Latu, which surprised some who felt the team had far more pressing needs elsewhere.

Arizona Cardinals at Buffalo Bills

The Arizona Cardinals struggled through another dismal season in 2023, almost all of it without QB Kyler Murray, who returned from knee injury late in the year. The good news is that the team used the fourth overall pick to give him WR Marvin Harrison Jr. as a new target this season. While the 4-13 record from last season was bad no matter how you slice it, this team did surprise some good squads while playing a lot of others closer than expected even in defeat.

The Buffalo Bills overcame a sputtering, inconsistent start to win the AFC East last season. The team fell to the Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs, but QB Josh Allen is once again expected to be an MVP contender. The big offseason news was the loss of WR Stefon Diggs, whom the Bills traded to Houston in exchange for draft picks. Hoping to fill the hole he left behind, Buffalo used the first of its draft picks this year to grab WR Keon Coleman.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Atlanta Falcons

The Pittsburgh Steelers will look notably different on offense this season after acquiring both Russell Wilson and Justin Fields as dueling quarterback options. The team used its top draft picks to add to its offensive line, though there are also holes to fill at running back and receiver. T.J. Watt, the team’s best defensive player, is still hoping to return from injury in time for training camp.

The Atlanta Falcons surprised many people by drafting QB Michael Penix Jr. so soon after acquiring Kirk Cousins as the primary play-caller. The team has insisted it’s looking to the future, but it’s not as if there weren’t also other areas of need for Atlanta. RB Bijan Robinson is still battling an ankle issue, and it’s unclear if he’ll be ready at the start of training camp.

Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks

The Denver Broncos had something of a bitter parting with QB Russell Wilson toward the end of last season, and after he helped the team show some signs of life down the stretch. Now Denver will be pinning some of its hopes on rookie QB Bo Nix, though it also has Zach Wilson as an option if Nix isn’t ready to start right away.

The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a 9-8 season in a division where San Francisco remains the dominant force. The team spent the early rounds of the draft trying to shore up the line on both sides of the ball, which might not be flashy but was probably necessary. QB Geno Smith will still be the starter under center, and he’ll have WR DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett to throw to.

Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers

The Las Vegas Raiders are trying to turn things around under new GM Tom Telesco after a turbulent season that included the mid-year firing of head coach Josh McDaniels. With Antonio Pierce as the head coach and QB Aidan O’Connell trying to secure the starting spot, there’s a lot still to firm up in Vegas.

The Los Angeles Chargers finished last in the AFC West and lost QB Justin Herbert to a finger injury late last season. The team is hoping to have him fully healthy in time to start training camp, but there are still concerns about who he’ll have to throw to among a thin and largely unremarkable receiver corps.

Washington Commanders at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Washington Commanders were the worst team in the NFC East last season, resulting in big shakeups headed into this year. The team has a new head coach in Dan Quinn, and QB Jayden Daniels is expected to start under center after the Commanders used their No. 2 spot in the draft to nab him. Washington will be hoping for some instant production from a strong draft class, but that could be a lot to ask of these NFL rookies.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the NFC South last season, albeit with a 9-8 record that wouldn’t have been good enough for first place in any other division. After getting a surprisingly strong performance out of QB Baker Mayfield, the team focused on other needs in the draft, using its first pick to add to its offensive line with Duke’s Graham Barton. The core of last season’s team is still intact, but Tampa Bay is hoping for major improvements in the pass rush game particularly.

Dallas Cowboys at Cleveland Browns

The Dallas Cowboys were the best home team in the NFL last season, which made the home loss to the Packers in the first round of the playoffs even more shocking. This offseason has seen the Cowboys’ front office struggle with attempts to ink extension deals with QB Dak Prescott and WR CeeDee Lamb. The team will put RB Ezekiel Elliott back in the lineup after he spent last season with New England.

The Cleveland Browns finished second in the AFC North last season and will be looking to improve on that 11-win campaign. The biggest questions are at quarterback, with Deshaun Watson and backup Dorian Thompson-Robinson both still battling injuries. Jameis Winston is the current QB2 for Cleveland, but this is a team that started five quarterbacks in a patchwork effort last season. The good news is that RB Nick Chubb is reportedly progressing well as he rehabs the knee injury that ended his 2023 campaign.

Los Angeles Rams at Detroit Lions

The Los Angeles Rams ended up with a somewhat surprisingly strong showing last season, finishing second in the NFC West before coming up one point short against Detroit in the opening round of the playoffs. After the retirement of Aaron Donald, Los Angeles needed a pass rushing threat. The team sought to address that in the first round of the draft, selecting Florida State’s Jared Verse.

The Detroit Lions are coming off a huge season, winning the NFC North and coming up just short in the NFC title game. The team is the favorite to win its division again, with most of its key players returning this season. Detroit is fully committed to QB Jared Goff at this point, inking him to a hefty contract extension in the offseason. It’s the defensive backfield that needs work, which the Lions focused on with their first two picks in the 2024 draft.

New York Jets at San Francisco 49ers

The New York Jets got off to a terrible start last season, losing QB Aaron Rodgers to an Achilles tendon injury almost immediately. Rodgers is expected to be back in the starting quarterback role for Week 1, and the team acquired some extra help up front with the signings of offensive linemen Morgan Moses and John Simpson.

The San Francisco 49ers are coming off an NFC championship season but suffered a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss in overtime. With QB Brock Purdy back under center and RB Christian McCaffrey in the backfield, the core of the team is largely unchanged. San Francisco did use its first-round draft pick to plan for the future at wide receiver, picking up Florida’s Ricky Pearsall at 31st overall.

NFL Brazil odds: Packers vs. Eagles

Week 1 features a rare Friday night NFL game this year, with Green Bay and Philadelphia facing off in São Paulo on Sept. 6. This will be the first NFL game in South America, part of the league’s international games for 2024.

The game will take place at Corinthians Arena in São Paulo, a stadium that seats around 47,000 for soccer games, and will stream on Peacock. Sports bettors in the US can still use online sportsbooks to wager on the game as usual. Normally, the NFL cannot play Friday night games due to the Sports Broadcasting Act of 1961. That law would withdraw antitrust immunity for any televised Friday night or Saturday games between the second week of September and the second week of December. This game, however, takes place in the first week of September, giving the league a loophole.
