The Detroit Lions (+3.5) travel to Arrowhead Stadium to kick off the 2023 NFL season against the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs (-4.5). Kansas City’s star tight end, Travis Kelce, hyper-extended his knee in Tuesday’s practice, which affected the betting lines over the last 48 hours.

Travis Kelce had 110 receptions last season, which was the second most ever by a tight end. He has been ruled out for Thursday night. The Chiefs are still the favorite, but the Over/Under did slide down to a healthy 52.5 points. The game will be nationally televised on NBC, and it starts at 8:20 p.m. ET.

The teams have previously played 14 times. Kansas City leads the series 9-5 and has won the last two matchups. The last time these two teams met was on Sept. 29th, 2019, and the Chiefs won 34-30.

Below, your viewing, listening, and betting information. Use this as your open thread to discuss the first game of the 2023 NFL season.
