The 2017 NFL season kicks off Thursday night with the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to Foxborough to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
The line opened at Patriots -7, meaning Vegas expects Tom Brady and company to win by a touchdown, but it’s since gone up to -8. That’s significant since almost 10 percent of NFL games end on seven.
The Over-Under, or total number of points projected to be scored, stands at 48. Given it’s the NFL Kickoff Game, it’ll be one of the most-bet-on and most-watched games of the season. Average Joes and experienced pros alike will have a stake on the outcome.
