The National Football League released their 2017-18 regular season schedule on Thursday evening and, of course, the sportsbooks online and across Las Vegas were quick to react with some fresh new content for their betting boards.

Oddsmakers will be working diligently on full schedule betting lines, "Games of the Year", and regular season win totals but the initial release are point spreads and totals for Week 1.

The defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, will open the season on Thursday night at Gillette Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Westgate LV Superbook opened the Pats as 7-point favorites.

The biggest opening line favorites for Week 1 are the Pittsburgh Steelers who opened as 9.5-point chalk on the road against the Cleveland Browns. The highest total on the early betting board is the Sunday afternoon matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the Tennessee Titans which opened at 53.5.

Here is the complete list of opening line spreads and totals from the Superbook:
