The point spreads and totals for Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season were released on Wednesday, and bettors already have jumped on the action, forcing the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook to adjust some of its NFL odds.
The Week 1 game that has seen the most change is the Kansas City Chiefs at the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the high-scoring Chiefs, who fell to New England in last season's AFC Championship Game, opened as a 5.5-point favorite at Jacksonville. But early action already has driven that number down to -5.
Also in that game, the Over/Under for total points scored started at 52, but early betting has raised that number to 52.5.
Elsewhere in Week 1, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who went 5-11 last year, opened as a 2.5-point favorite against the visiting San Francisco 49ers. Money on San Francisco, however, has moved that point spread to 2.

Finally, for the Week 1 Sunday night game featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers at the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, the SuperBook opened the total at 53. But early bettors slammed the Under, quickly dropping the total to 51.5. The Steelers will be playing this season without two of its top playmakers from recent seasons--receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le'Veon Bell--and last year's matchup between the teams produced only 27 points, a 17-10 Pittsburgh win.
