NFL Odds: Titans vs. Steelers point spread and opening game odds

 Finally after months of patient wait the NFL season is set to being tonight with the opening game between the Tennessee Titans and the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, here you will find the latest odds and point spread on the NFL opening game. The majority of the experts do agree - there couldn't be a better match-up to open this NFL season than the Titians vs. Steelers. The rivalry between these two has been brewing since last year, when the current Super Bowl champion had to take a 31-14 beating by the Titans. To pour oil into the fire, there was the towel stomping courtesy of LenDale White, a controversy back then and a sure fire starter for the game tonight. But towel or no towel, the opening NFL game tonight is sure to be a treat for all fans of the football game, not just the participating teams.

 As usual when we review the NFL odds and point spread on the regular season games we will take a look at the betting numbers posted by two of the most popular online sportsbooks, giving the reader and bettor an advantage of comparing the odds and choosing the best ones. Beginning with the odds on the Titans @ Steelers at the online sportsbook Bookmaker, the odds makers there are hardly expecting another towel stomping - the Steelers are the big favorite sitting on -290 odds to win the NFL opening game tonight, while the Titans are big underdog with +240. The Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers point spread is currently at -6 points chalk the Steelers and the total for the NFL opening game is set at 35 points by Bookmaker. And as expected, the Titians vs. Steelers game is at the top of the 10 most bet on events this week with the bookie and the majority of the bettors are taking the Steelers, according to information from Bookmaker.

 The odds and spread on the NFL season opener are slightly different at the sports betting company Bodog Sports. The popular online sportsbook has also listed the Steelers as the odds-on favorite, but at Bodog Pittsburgh are sitting on just -280, while the Titans are paying out on +240 odds if they win the first game of the regular season today. At Bodog the point spread on the Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers is currently at -6.5 points chalk the Steelers and the total posted by the bookie is also 35 points.

 Even the Vegas odds are siding heavily with the Steelers - the Las Vegas odds throughout the Sin City's sportsbooks are all at -6 spread and 35 total. Will the current Super Bowl champ be able to deliver a strong opener or will the Titans repeat the last game from the previous season? According to the sportsbooks the Steelers have nothing to fear when they welcome the Titans tonight, but as we all know, nothing is guaranteed and if Tennessee does deliver an upset, some bettors will start the NFL season with a great payout.
