The National Football League opens the 2023 season on Thursday, September 7, with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Detroit Lions. With three Super Bowl appearances and two titles in the past four seasons, the Chiefs are positioned as the betting favorite to hoist another Lombardi Trophy. They are also a 6.5-point favorite in the opener against a team with playoff aspirations. The Lions closed last season winning eight of their last 10 games staying in playoff contention until the final weekend. Detroit hasn’t reached the postseason since the 2016 season and their last playoff win came following the 1991 campaign. In fact, the Chiefs have more Super Bowls than the Lions have playoff wins since the 1970 merger.

The Lions are a sexy pick to at least earn a playoff berth and they are the preseason favorite to win the NFC North now that Aaron Rodgers is out of the division. And speaking of Rodgers, he’ll attempt to end the longest active playoff drought in the league with his new team the New York Jets. Boasting an elite defense, the Jets needed a consistent presence at QB and got it. Rodgers and the Jets face a stiff test in the opener catching 2.5 points against AFC East rival Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. The opening weekend of NFL action is here and bettors are salivating.

There are familiar faces in different places and plenty of new faces around the NFL, and that’s just at the quarterback position. Along with Rodgers the Las Vegas Raiders will open a season without Derek Carr behind center for the first time in a number of years. Carr was basically let go by the Raiders and signed a free agent deal with the Saints to be their starter. Jimmy Garoppolo was signed by Vegas to be their new QB. And former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfied has resurfaced with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Three QBs taken in the first four spots of the 2023 NFL Draft will start the season opener. The Carolina Panthers traded up to select Bryce Young first overall. The Houston Texas nabbed Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud with the second pick. And the Indianapolis Colts got Florida’s Anthony Richardson with the fourth overall pick. You could say those three teams are rebuilding since they each have a new head coach roaming the sidelines as well.

Frank Reich heads to Carolina with his team a 3.5-point dog against NFC South rival Atlanta in the opener. Houston hired former Niners defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans to turn the struggling franchise around. The Texans have just 11 wins combined over the past three seasons under four different head coaches. Houston is the biggest dog on the Week 1 board catching 10 points against the Ravens.

The Colts opted for former Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen to be their next coach. Steichen wasted no time naming Richardson his starter as the club looks to finally fill the void created by Andrew Luck’s retirement a few years ago. The Colts are a 5-point home dog for their Week 1 tilt with AFC South foe Jacksonville.

The list of QBs around the league is impressive, but the position is notable for who’s NOT in uniform this season. For the first time in two decades Tom Brady won’t be chucking passes around an NFL stadium. The New England Patriots still haven’t recovered from the loss of Brady a few years ago now it’s the Bucs’ turn to navigate life post-Brady. Both of Brady’s former teams are getting points in Week 1 with the Bucs a 6-point road dog at Minnesota and the Pats a 4-point home pup against the defending NFC champion Eagles.
