  • Using the Action Network's betting tools, we've analyzed the most popular Week 1 NFL sides, big line moves and key numbers.

We’ve had plenty of time to get action down on the Week 1 NFL slate. Any of you readers hammer some of these openers back in April? Maybe you let things settle in and pulled the trigger in May. Heck, maybe you’re just one of those boring people who waits until the actual week of the game to bet it … psh, how lame.

Well it is the actual week of the games, now, and many of you are making your decision on what to bet. Here’s what’s happened over the past four months and change, including some big line moves, trendy choices and games teetering on key numbers.

All odds via PointsBet as of 10 a.m. ET Tuesday.

Biggest Movers

Ravens vs. Dolphins: It seems like folks expect that Ravens preseason winning streak to continue! After a 4-0 preseason in which they outscored their opponents 101-35, 85% of bets and a whopping 94% of the cash, both Week 1 superlatives, have come in on the Baltimore spread. This onslaught of action has forced oddsmakers to move the line up from the opener of -4 to -6.5 and even -7 at some books. However, the Dolphins have seen sharp action on their side at the key number of +7 when it’s been made available.
