The 2015 NFL season is finally here. Teams have gone through the preseason and cut down their rosters to 53. Now, it’s time for the real deal with Week 1 NFL action set to get underway. The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots kick off the season with a home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night. The Patriots have been listed as a 7-point favorite with a total set of 52 points.

Tom Brady wasn’t expected to be playing in this game when the NFL issued a 4-game suspension for ‘Deflategate’.  At that point, the line was Patriots -3 over Steelers when Jimmy Garoppolo was supposed to start.  But Brady won his appeal, and oddsmakers believe he’s worth four points in moving this spread to -7 with the recent news.

Week 1 sees several other good matchups, especially some key divisional games. The Packers (-6.5) travel to the Bears in NFC North action, while the Seahawks (-4) visit the Rams, and the Cowboys (-6) host the Giants. There are also some intriguing non-divisional games with the likes of the Colts (-3) at the Bills, the Cardinals (-2.5) hosting the Saints, and the Broncos (-4.5) hosting the Ravens.  I have listed the current odds for every game below as of Monday, September 7. I will also be releasing a preview of every game with my early lean on each.
