Week 1 of the NFLX is in the books. Underdogs went 10-6 ATS including the HOF game, while overs went 12-5.

Over the last 10+ years, average scoring in Week 1 of the preseason hovered around the 35 point range and many of the totals on the board this year reflected that.

In that same time span, scoring averages hover around the 37 point range in Week 2 as starters get more time on the field, but this preseason books have opened 13 of the 16 games at 40+.  Was this an overreaction to all the Week 1 'overs', or are they correctly adjusting for this new passing league?  The answer likely lies somewhere in between.

Check back for updates and refresh this post for all Week 2 picks.
