And, FanDuel Sportsbook has wasted no time releasing early Week 1 odds for many of these games.
One marquee matchup to highlight is the Monday Night Football season opener between the Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders.
Ravens vs Raiders Opening Odds
FanDuel Sportsbook has the Ravens as 5-point road favorites over the Raiders. The Ravens moneyline is sitting at -230, compared to the Raiders at +190.
The Ravens enter as one of the favorites in the AFC with +650 odds to take home the AFC Championship. Baltimore won 11 games last season but failed to make it past the Divisional Playoffs for the eighth season in a row. Las Vegas, on the other hand, finished outside of the playoff picture with an 8-8 record in 2020.
Baltimore operated with a lethal run game last season thanks to the combination of Lamar Jackson at quarterback and a trio of running backs in J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Mark Ingram. This combo led to the best point differential in all of football (+165). The Raiders finished with a bottom-12 point differential (-44).
There's plenty of time for these odds to move before September rolls around, but the early signs are that oddsmakers are expecting a pretty one-sided game in the Monday night opener.
