Week 1 of the NFL season has arrived, but odds for each of the gridiron matchups have been around for a few months now.

It’s always fascinating to take a look back and see what type of line movement has occurred since opening, so lets examine which games have shifted the most since lines were first released.

The Thursday night contest between the Bills and the Rams has seen its fair share of adjustment. When the spread for this one first came out, the reigning Super Bowl champs were 1-point favorites, but Los Angeles is now a 2.5-point underdog.

Of course, it’s easy to understand the biggest bit of line movement. When the BrownsPanthers spread was first released, Deshaun Watson still had a chance to feature as Cleveland’s starter.

The Browns opened as 4.5-point favorites, but they now sit as 2.5-point underdogs, a hefty six-point shift.

Elsewhere, the Broncos‘ visit to the Seahawks was anticipated to be closer than it is currently believed to be.

That Monday night game was originally marked as a 3.5-point affair, but the Broncos have drifted to become 6.5-point favorites.

Game Opening Spread Current Spread
Bills vs. Rams Rams -1 Bills -2.5
Ravens vs. Jets Ravens -4.5 Ravens -7
Browns vs. Panthers Browns -4.5 Panthers -2.5
Steelers vs. Bengals Bengals -6.5 Bengals -6.5
Saints vs. Falcons Saints -3.5 Saints -5.5
Patriots vs. Dolphins Dolphins -3 Dolphins -3

Eagles vs. Lions Eagles -4 Eagles -4
Colts vs. Texans Colts -8 Colts -8
49ers vs. Bears 49ers -6.5 49ers -7
Packers vs. Vikings Packers -2 Packers -1.5
Giants vs. Titans Titans -6.5 Titans -5.5
Raiders vs. Chargers Chargers -4 Chargers -3
Chiefs vs. Cardinals Chiefs -3 Chiefs -4.5
Buccaneers vs. Cowboys Buccaneers -2.5 Buccaneers -2.5
Broncos vs. Seahawks Broncos -3.5 Broncos -6.5

Over half of the Week 1 schedule has kept a spread at its original number or within a half of a point, but it’s likely we see the most movement of all in the coming days as we lead into the games.
