NFL Opening Line Report – Week 15
Every Monday, we take a look at the opening lines for next week’s NFL games:
|Jaguars||44%||10.5||11.0||Lone Thursday night matchup presents great value to the public, with spread bettors seemingly split down the middle as to who to take. Despite the sportsbooks adjusting their lines to give road dog Jacksonville an additional half-point, spread bettors are giving the slight edge to Atlanta securing at least a 12-point win in front of their home crowd.|
|Cowboys||83%||-6.5||-7.0||The first Saturday night game of the season is already one of the most lopsided bet games of the week. And even with the sportsbooks giving home dog Tampa Bay an additional half-point, the betting public is overwhelmingly in favor of the Boys covering on the road.|
|Redskins||22%||7.5||7.0||With the sportsbooks adjusting their lines to take a pivotal half-point away from road dog Washington, the betting public remains heavily in favor of the G-Men winning this NFC East showdown by eight points or more.|
|Packers||91%||-14.0||-13.5||Despite the largest spread of the week, more than nine out of ten spread wagers are sticking with the 13-0 Packers to cover in a big way, especially after the sportsbooks adjusted their lines to take a pivotal half-point away from home dog KC.|
|Panthers||35%||6.5||6.0||With the sportsbooks adjusting their lines to take a big half-point away from road dog Carolina, the betting public is fading the Cam Newton hype and going with the 10-3 Texans to win by at least seven points at home.|
|Titans||88%||-7.0||-6.5||Another hugely lopsided game here, with the betting public overwhelmingly in favor of Tennessee winning by at least seven points on the road against the winless Colts.|
|Lions||75%||0.0||-1.0||After starting out as a pick-em, the sportsbooks have adjusted their lines to make Detroit a one-point road favorite. As a result, three out of four spread bets are going with Lions to win by at least two points in Oakland.|
|Patriots||82%||-4.5||-6.0||Despite the sportsbooks adjusting their lines in a dramatic way to give home dog Denver an additional 1.5 points, more than eight out of ten spread bets are sticking with Brady and the Pats to take down the phenomenon that is Tebow and escape Mile High with at least a seven point victory.|
|Jets||54%||2.0||3.0||As a result of the sportsbooks giving road dog New York an additional point, the betting public is giving the slight edge to Rex and the Jets either winning straight up or losing by two or less in Philly against Vick and the Eagles.|
|Browns||27%||6.5||6.5||With the line remaining static for this inter-conference showdown, nearly three out of four spread bets remain confident in the home favorite Cardinals beating the lowly Browns by at least seven points.|
|Ravens||76%||-1.0||-2.5||Even with the sportsbooks adjusting their lines to give home dog San Diego an additional 1.5 points, more than three out of four spread bets are sticking with the 10-3 Ravens winning by a field goal or more against Rivers and the Chargers.|
|Steelers||N/A||N/A||N/A||With the status of Ben Roethlisberger and his injured ankle in jeopardy, the market setting sportsbooks have yet to release their lines for this epic Monday night showdown.|
|Saints||N/A||N/A||N/A||Similar scenario here, with the sportsbooks yet to release their lines while they await word on the status of injured Vikings playmakers Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder.|
