With the final major offseason event in the books, we’re now free and clear for the upcoming 2024 NFL season. The 2024 schedule was released on Wednesday. That means we know the matchups for our New York NFL teams for Week 1 and beyond.

At NY sportsbook DraftKings, you can actually bet on every game of the NFL season — from Week 1 to 18. Frankly, that’s looking too far ahead, even for us!

But we will happily look at the NFL Week 1 odds for the New York Giants, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills to get you ready for Sept. 8 and 9!

NFL Week 1 Odds: Aaron Rodgers on Monday Night — What Could Go Wrong?

For the New York Jets, it will be a sense of deja vu coming Monday, Sept. 9.

The Jets will run it back with Aaron Rodgers, hoping to avoid the calamity that happened on Monday night in Week 1 last year. Of course, after Rodgers was injured for the season on the opening drive, the Jets did stage a dramatic overtime victory favored Buffalo.

This year, the Jets face a more formidable challenge. They will travel to northern California to take on the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. It’s also a homecoming for Rodgers, who grew up in the area and went to college at Cal. He is 3-4 as an opponent at Levi’s Stadium in the regular season and playoffs with Green Bay.

Right now, this game has the third-largest spread of Week 1 NFL odds at -5.5 in favor of the home team. It also marks a homecoming for Jets head coach Robert Saleh, who was San Francisco’s defensive coordinator the last time the teams met in 2020.

Last year, expectations for the Jets were high. This year, they’re more tempered due to Rodgers being more of a question mark. But this is still a three-time NFL MVP who won the award just three seasons ago. The Jets also have a great defense, so this could be a lower-scoring matchup.

Finally, history also favors the Jets with San Francisco’s status as Super Bowl runners-up. Since 2000, the team that lost the Super Bowl is 9-14 straight up and 5-18 against the spread in their Week 1 game the following year.

Giants Presented With a Chance to Rebound Early in 2024

After reaching the playoffs in 2022 and winning a postseason game for the first time in over a decade, expectations were higher for the Giants going into last season. Those expectations crashed and burned early after a 40-0 loss to Dallas in Week 1 and didn’t really recover for the rest of the season.

Now, especially after losing running back Saquon Barkley, the predictions for Big Blue aren’t as kind going into the new season. But the schedule-makers are giving the Giants — who have shown flashes of brilliance defensively the past couple of years — a bit of a break. They will face rookie quarterbacks in the first two weeks of the season. First, it will be J.J. McCarthy’s Minnesota Vikings at MetLife Stadium.

The Giants did replace Barkley with Devin Singletary, and rookie wide receiver Malik Nabers will provide a spark. But perhaps the most noteworthy move by the G-Men this year was adopting the Montreal Canadiens look for their throwbacks. It’s garnered far more vitriol from the fans than letting Barkley go to a hated rival, and maybe that was the point.

For this game, NY sportsbook FanDuel has the G-men as 1-point favorites. But quarterback Daniel Jones is coming off an ACL injury that ended his season early last year. New Vikings defensive coordinator Brian Flores will look to keep Jones moving. Jones is typically strong when scrambling, but coming off this injury may limit him a bit.

Nevertheless, expect the Giants’ playmakers on defense to harass McCarthy into enough mistakes to win a low-scoring game. As a bonus, take the under of 41.5 here.

Can the Bills Be Trusted vs. a Soft Opponent?

The Bills, coming off a home playoff loss for the second straight season, open the 2024 season at Highmark Stadium by hosting the Arizona Cardinals. BetMGM has the Bills as a touchdown favorite at -7.

But while the Bills did end up having a nice regular season last year by winning the AFC East for the fourth straight year, they were not to be trusted as heavy favorites. Buffalo was favored by a touchdown or more on eight occasions last year. But they covered the spread in just two of those games. In fact, they lost two of them outright and very easily could’ve lost another three — they needed last-second stops to beat the Giants, Tampa Bay, and Los Angeles Chargers.

Arizona comes in with Kyler Murray healthy and brand new wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. However, the Cardinals defense still needs some work. This could be a high-scoring game. But we’re going to trust that the Bills will have a greater focus when big favorites this year.
