The Favorites podcast with Chad Millman and Simon Hunter — brought to you by bet365 — finally had some NFL betting lines to discuss and the hosts couldn't have been more excited to discuss Week 1 spreads.

Prior to that segment, Millman and Hunter spoke about the NBA Conference Finals, specifically the disappointing Boston Celtics. Then, they discussed Action Network's red-hot golf season so far.

NFL Week 1 Betting Lines

What is the first game that sticks out?

Millman was surprised to see the Indianapolis Colts were 3.5-point underdogs at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hunter pointed out why he thinks that spread wasn't far off.

Should the Steelers be underdogs against the 49ers? 

Millman could not believe bookmakers expect the public to fall in love with the 49ers. Hunter reiterated why it's dumb to trust the public and why the 49ers could be overvalued this season.

Both of them agree now could be the best time to bet this game.

Why are people so down on the Los Angeles Rams?

Hunter is surprised to see how the public feels about the Rams and explains why they are one of the teams to back if Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford are healthy.
