  • Opening point spread: Pick
  • Opening moneyline: Bills -140/Jets +120
  • Opening total: Over/Under 46 points scored
  • Time: 5:15 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 11 (ESPN)

UPDATE 3 P.M. ET MONDAY: TwinSpires Sportsbook pegged the Bills 1.5-point favorites at the outset, and Buffalo is currently -2. The Bills are taking 60% of spread tickets, while 70% of spread cash is on the Jets.

"We've seen a flurry of money on the New York Jets today. As of now, we need the Bills," TwinSpires director of retail trading Zachary Lucas said.

The total is down to 44.5 from a 47 opener, with 52% of tickets on the Over/64% of money on the Under.

UPDATE 5 P.M. ET FRIDAY: Nationally, BetMGM opened this Monday night contest at Bills -1.5. Buffalo has been at -2.5 since Aug. 31, with ticket count and money 2/1 on the Bills.

The total opened at 47.5, bottomed out at 45 (Over -120) Thursday morning and is now 45.5 at BetMGM. The Over is landing 58% of tickets/67% of money.

UPDATE 10 P.M. ET FRIDAY, SEPT. 1: The finale in the NFL odds Week 1 market currently has Buffalo -2.5 against AFC East rival New York. BetMGM Nevada opened this game at pick in mid-May and quickly went to Bills -1.5. The Bills reached -2.5 on Aug. 31.

"It's basically all Bills. Ticket count is 6/1 and money is roughly 6/1," Shelton said, while noting that – like Dallas – the favorite is getting moneyline play too. "It's almost 5/1 money on the Bills. Even sharp play on Bills -120. But that could change next week."

Indeed, with Aaron Rodgers making his regular-season debut for the Jets, it wouldn't be surprising to see a mountain of moneyline tickets and cash show up on New York. BetMGM Nevada's moneyline is currently Bills -135/Jets +115.

The total went from 47 to 47.5, then down to 46.5 about a month ago. It's still 46.5, but Shelton said there's "hardly anything to it" yet at BetMGM's Vegas operations.

UPDATE 1:30 P.M. ET MONDAY, AUG. 28: It's the big regular-season debut everyone is waiting for, with Aaron Rodgers and his Jets taking on Josh Allen and the AFC East rival Bills in the Week 1 Monday nighter.

New York acquired four-time NFL MVP Rodgers in an April trade with the Green Bay Packers. The Jets are attracting plenty of attention in Super Bowl and playoff markets. Delivering on those bets would represent a massive jump from the 2022-23 campaign, when New York went 7-10 SU (8-9 ATS).

Buffalo was the Super Bowl favorite much of last season. But the Bills (14-4 SU, 8-9-1 ATS) dropped out in the Divisional Round. Allen & Co. got rocked at home by the Cincinnati Bengals 27-10.

"We took some early Bills money, which we kind of expected, just because some other shops [had] the Bills as a small favorite," Degnon said, noting The SuperBook opened Jets-Bills at pick.

Buffalo went to -1 in mid-May, -1.5 Aug. 2, -2 Aug. 16 and -2.5 this morning. The total topped out at 47.5 Aug. 4, then dipped to 46.5 Sunday. While The SuperBook's spread/total opened back on May 11, the moneyline just opened today, hence no movement so far.
