A wagering site online has already posted point spreads on NFL games for the first 16 weeks of the regular season. Every game, every team, every week except for the regular season's final week when many teams rest their players are included by the new Cantor Race & Sports Book inside the Palms Hotel & Casino.
A story in the National Football Post has a link to the site, which seems to be taking a risk so early in the year to boast having odds on every NFL game in the first 16 weeks. There is always a team each season that either tanks (Philadelphia Eagles) or surprises (San Francisco 49ers) as they did last season.
The Baltimore Ravens are favorites in ten of their first 15 games, which sounds good but the Pittsburgh Steelers are favorites in eleven of the 15 games listed. In their two head-to-head match-ups, each team is favored by a field goal based on the games being held in either Baltimore or Pittsburgh.

The Ravens open on prime time TV, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals and are listed by the Cantor Sports Book as a touchdown (7 points) favorite. They are underdogs (+3.5 pts.) week two on the road at the Philadelphia Eagles, and surprisingly also home underdogs (+1.5 pts.) against the defending AFC Champion New England Patriots.
Here is the list of the Ravens opponents by week in the 2012 regular season, home (vs.) or away (@) and the current point spreads, which can change as we get closer to the start and into the regular season.
