NFL Opening Line Report Week 13

Note that the NFL has a game on Thursday night.

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.

New Orleans Saints vs. Cincinnati Bengals

In early betting action, this game is the heaviest-bet game of the weekend.  This week’s games have a few hugely lopsided-bet games — with this match-up being one of them.  The Bengals are receiving just 13% of the bets against the defending Super Bowl champs — who have won four games in a row.  Interestingly, the opening line of Saints -7 has ticked lower to Saints -6.5 — even with a huge percentage of bets taking the Saints.  This reverse line movement is an indication of early sharps on the Bengals.

Cincinnati Bengals 13% +7 +6.5

St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals

This game is currently the most lopsided-bet game of the week, with the first-place Rams collecting 90% of the bets.  Yes: the Rams are in first place, with a 5-6 record!  Keep an eye on this game for a potential “bet against the Public” play and for potential line value.
