NFL Week 1 Steelers, 49ers No Respect

The NFL season kicks off with some marquee teams getting an early douse of disrespect from oddsmakers.

Include San Francisco and Pittsburgh in this group of teams looking to prove wrong the early doubters.

Wondering the last time when the Steelers were regular-season underdogs of a touchdown or more? That was back in 2009 and they are currently laying seven points at New England (now that Tom Brady is back under center).

In fact, the Steelers have been dogs of seven or more points only 10 times in the past 15 years and are 8-2 ATS.

Wondering when the 49ers last were regular-season home underdogs? It was Sept 18, 2011 vs Dallas and they sit as home pups to Minnesota in one of the Week 1 Monday Nighters.

Thinking the Seahawks are a safe bet opening the season in St. Louis? Check their September road record in recent years, it is terrible (2-8 SU & ATS). Of course, the Rams are historically Week 1 patsies, covering just twice in 15 seasons.

Loving the Packers as road chalk at Chicago? News flash – they have lost SU in three straight openers and face a Bears team riding a 4-0 ATS run when catching a touchdown or more at home since 2004.

Are you scared of the Giants at Dallas? The last time the G-Men were dogged by seven points in a divisional game, they crushed the Eagles back in 2011. But they are winless in their last six Week 1 games on the road.

Of course, Dallas has lost four of six Week 1 games at home since 2000, so they are not inspiring much historical trend confidence either.

And on Monday, are you tempted to back the Vikings at San Francisco? Those same Vikes that are winless in six MNF games since 2009 against a 49ers team riding a 9-1 ATS MNF streak?

Check out the Week 1 batch of cool NFL betting trends from the OddsShark NFL Database.
