The schedule for week one of the 2021 NFL season has already been leaked, and as such, oddsmakers have already unveiled opening lines for each game.
According to BetOnline.ag, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have opened as touchdown, six-point favorites over the Dallas Cowboys. The 52-point over/under is the second-largest of week one, meaning oddsmakers are expecting a lot of points from quarterback Tom Brady and the loaded Buccaneers offense as well as from the talented Cowboys offense. At least, so long as Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott is cleared to play after fracturing his ankle early last season.
As made official on Wednesday morning, the Buccaneers will host the Cowboys on Sept. 9 for Thursday Night Football on NBC, kicking off the season.
Along with the Buccaneers, each NFC South team is considered a week one favorite according to the opening lines. The Carolina Panthers are four-point favorites over the New York Jets, the Atlanta Falcons are three-and-a-half-point favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles, and the New Orleans Saints are three-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers.
