Note that there is an NFL game on Thursday evening.
The opening lines are out for this week’s upcoming NFL action, and what does the early betting action say? Please visit our blog and read our series of Sports Marketwatch articles for updated information during the week.
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants
This game, even with the huge two-touchdown point spread, is attracting a lot of betting interest. Will a new coach spark the Dallas Cowboys? Will this long-time divisional rivalry get the Cowboys up for the game? This game features two teams headed in seemingly opposite directions. The Giants blew out Seattle 41-7 last week — and are riding a 5-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Cowboys took a 45-7 pounding at the hands of the Packers to cap off their current 5-game losing streak. Several “public books” have already edged the line up to 14 points.

|New York Giants||72%||-13.5||-13.5|
Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles’ big win over Indy this past Sunday impressed a lot of sports fans. While the Eagles didn’t cover the spread, football fans noted that Philly is a force to be reckoned with. The Eagles are attracting a huge percentage of bets in this week’s upcoming game versus the Redskins. This lopsided-betting action is starting to move the line, even off of the huge key-three number. Public perception plays a large role in value in the sports marketplace.
|Team||# Bets||Spread %||Open||Current|
|Philadelphia Eagles||3735||81%||-3 -110||-3 -120|
|Washington Redskins||19%||+3 +110||+3 +100|
