Week 1 Line Moves
Some of the biggest line moves we'll see will happen in Week 1 after the initial numbers were released back in the spring. The LVH (Las Vegas Hotel and Casino) Sportsbook has made the proper adjustments heading into the season opening games as we'll take a look at why some of these games moved.

Patriots at Bills

LVH Opener: New England -7
Current Line: New England -9 ½

The Bills announced on Wednesday that rookie E.J. Manuel will be their opening day quarterback, in spite of having a minor knee surgery that put the former Florida State standout on the shelf for most of the preseason. Kevin Kolb suffered a concussion during the preseason, while ex-Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel will serve as the primary back-up QB in Week 1.

Buccaneers at Jets

LVH Opener: Pick-em
Current Line: Tampa Bay -3 ½

It's rare to see the Bucs listed in the road favorite role, but the quarterback issues in New York caused the line move. Mark Sanchez will sit out the opener after injuring his shoulder in the third preseason game, as rookie Geno Smith is set to make his debut in Week 1. Also, former Jets' cornerback Darrelle Revis will face his old team as a member of the Bucs following a torn ACL suffered last season.

Chiefs at Jaguars

LVH Opener:
Kansas City -2 ½
Current Line: Kansas City -3 ½

The Jaguars look to be one of the bigger disasters in the NFL this season with their substandard quarterback play. Blaine Gabbert missed the final two games of the preseason, but the Jacksonville quarterback is hoping to play on Sunday.

Vikings at Lions

LVH Opener: Detroit -3
Current Line: Detroit -5

The money is starting to pour in on the Lions, who finished last season at a disappointing 4-12. Minnesota swept Detroit last season, but the Vikings stumbled to a 1-3 mark in the preseason.

Raiders at Colts

LVH Opener: Indianapolis -7
Current Line: Indianapolis -9 ½

Oakland is unsure about its starting quarterback heading into Sunday's matchup, but early indication is Terrelle Pryor will start ahead of Matt Flynn. Also, plenty of public money is headed the Colts way following their return to the playoffs last season.

Cardinals at Rams

LVH Opener: St. Louis -6
Current Line: St. Louis -5

St. Louis had its struggles in the preseason, as the improved NFC West will look for a boost from the Rams and Cardinals at the bottom of the division. Arizona won three of four exhibition games, while seeking revenge after getting swept by St. Louis in 2012.

Eagles at Redskins

LVH Opener: Washington -5 ½
Current Line: Washington -3 ½

The Redskins will start Robert Griffin III at quarterback just nine months after tearing his ACL in the playoff defeat to the Seahawks. The Eagles will stick with Michael Vick under center as Philadelphia hopes to use the uptempo offense of Chip Kelly to try and stun the Redskins.
