After a long offseason, the NFL is finally back, and that means NFL betting on FanDuel Sportsbook is back as well.

NFL Spreads Week 1

The season kicks off with a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans. The Chiefs are 9.5-point favorites, which is the largest point spread of the week.

There are three other teams favored by at least a touchdown this week: the San Francisco 49ers (-7 vs. the Arizona Cardinals), the Indianapolis Colts (-7.5 at the Jacksonville Jaguars) and the Baltimore Ravens (-7.5 vs. the Cleveland Browns).

The closest point spread of the week also comes in the final game, with the Tennessee Titans barely favored with a 1-point edge over the Denver Broncos in the Monday Night Football late game.

NFL Odds Week 1

The highest over/under of the week also comes in Thursday's opener, with the Chiefs and Texans sporting a total of 53.5 points.

The lowest over/under, and the only one below 40 points, is 39.5 for the AFC East matchup between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.
