There has been strong support for the Raiders in Week 1 in Vegas at the betting counters. This game opened at a Pick ‘Em and has since moved to a full field goal with added juice of -120 on the road favored Raiders. The new look Panthers will now have Teddy Bridgewater under center and Matt Rhule roaming the sidelines, but the steam has been on Josh Jacobs and Las Vegas in early action. The Panthers made some great additions on the offensive side of the ball, but they are expected to struggle in the defensive secondary. The Raiders have dynamic weapons in the passing game in Henry Ruggs III and Darren Waller so bettors are expecting Derek Carr to exploit that weakness with strong support backing Vegas in Week 1.

During Tannehill’s career in Tennessee, he’s averaged 247 passing yards per game. But the Cardinals present a unique opportunity for this offense as this might be the worst secondary in the NFL. Look for the Titans to stay balanced, but for Tannehill to easily eclipse 250 yards as he throws to A.J. Aaron Rodgers had an awful game in his season debut against the New Orleans Saints, completing only 15 of his 28 passes for 133 yards and throwing two interceptions.

And by the way, Bridgewater is an immaculate 28-7 ATS in his career as a starter. The Titans got scraped 16-0 at the Broncos in Week 6 of last season, spurring the switch from Marcus Mariota to Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. From that point on, the Titans went 9-4 SU and 8-5 ATS, averaging 28.9 points per game and outscoring opponents by an average of 5.9 points per game . I don’t make a habit of betting large favorites, but Baltimore’s SRS last season was +15.6 while Cleveland’s was -1.9; that’s a 17.5-point gap — and the Ravens are at home.

Inflated Lines

Both teams with the largest movement, Packers and Seahawks, saw movement due to the quarterback situations. The Packers moved five total points as Aaron Rodgers is ready to go for Week 1, along with Davante Adams. As for the Seahawks, they moved a total of 5.5 points given the injury to Carson Wentz.
