NFL Opening Line Report – Week 4
Every Monday, we take a look at the opening lines for next week’s NFL games:
|Bills||90%||-3||-3||After a comeback win against the Patriots, the public is likely to jump all over the Bills as small road favorites.|
|Vikings||89%||-1.5||-1.5||The Chiefs and Vikings were both able to cover last week, but are winless. The Vikings are small favorites although the game is a pick at a few books.|
|Giants||80%||-1||-3||Some early reverse-line movement as the betting percentages don’t reflect the line move off of the key number of 3.|
|Falcons||88%||-4.5||-4||The public is all over the Falcons early despite coming off of a loss against Tampa Bay. It will be interesting to see how much the line moves due to public money.|
|Jets||21%||3.5||4.5||In a defensive battle, the Ravens are favored just off of the key number of 3. In early action, bettors have no problem laying the points with the home favorite.|
|Saints||86%||-7||-8||The Saints are touchdown favorites on the road, although the line opened at -7.5 or -8 at some books, so some liked the value of taking the points with the Jags and moved the line back down to 7.|
|Broncos||29%||12.5||13||The largest spread of the week comes with the undefeated Packers hosting the Broncos.|
|Dolphins||60%||7.5||9||In a rare occurrence, most bettors like the underdog and are taking Miami and the points. This has already caused 1.5 points of line movement.|
|Patriots||80%||-4.5||-6||Another example of reverse line movement as the Raiders try to upset two AFC East teams in a row.|
|Panthers||34%||6.5||6.5||2 out of 3 bets like the Bears to slow down Cam Newton and beat the Panthers by at least a touchdown.|
|Titans||55%||1.5||1.5||Fairly split betting percentages as the Browns are small favorites over Tennessee.|
|Steelers||37%||3||3||Houston is favored by a field goal over the Steelers. Pittsburgh is a favorite bet by the betting public, so it will be interesting to see how these percentages change.|
|Colts||72%||10||10||After the Colts were able to cover against the Steelers on SNF, the bettors think they can do it again against the Bucs on MNF this week.|
There are currently no lines posted for 49ers/Eagles (due to the Vick injury), Lions/Cowboys, and Redskins/Rams.
