NFL Week 13 Opening Line Report

We’re through 12 weeks into the NFL season and are left with one undefeated team, the Carolina Panthers at 11-0. They’re currently listed at +400 to go the entire regular season undefeated at 5Dimes, and this week they take on New Orleans on the road as 7-point favorites.

Below we’ve taken a look at lookahead lines from CG Technology back in April and compared them to opening and current odds at Pinnacle:

Matchup Current Line (11/30) Opening Line (11/29) Look Ahead (4/25)
GB at DET GB -3 GB -5.5 GB pk
SF at CHI CHI -7 CHI -7 SF -1
CIN at CLE Off Board Off Board CIN -2
JAX at TEN TEN -2.5 TEN -2.5 TEN -3
HOU at BUF BUF -3 BUF -3.5 BUF -3
BAL at MIA Off Board Off Board MIA pk
SEA at MIN SEA -1 SEA -1 SEA -4.5
ARZ at STL ARZ -5.5 ARZ -5.5 STL -1
ATL at TB TB -2.5 TB -2.5 ATL -1
NYJ at NYG NYJ -1 NYJ -1 NYG -5
DEN at SD Off Board Off Board SD pk
KC at OAK KC -3 KC -3 KC -3.5
CAR at NO CAR -7 CAR -6.5 NO -2
PHI at NE Off Board Off Board NE -4
IND at PIT Off Board Off Board PIT -2.5
DAL at WAS WAS -4 WAS -4 DAL -3 (w/Romo)

Pinnacle opened Thursday night’s game in Detroit earlier than others and it looks like bettors were ready to pounce on the Lions, as they quickly moved from +5.5 to +3 vs. Green Bay. The Packers haven’t looked great in recent weeks and lost at home to the Lions during that span, while Detroit is riding a high after their big Thanksgiving Day win. It’s no surprise that 2/3 of bets are still coming in on Green Bay despite the line move, and we’d expect the public to keep betting the Packers to turn things around.

A bit of a surprising line is the Seahawks -1 at the Vikings. Sure Seattle is still one of the better teams in the league but Minnesota has gone 9-2 ATS this season and coming off a nice road win in Atlanta. We would have expected Minnesota to be a small home favorite despite oddsmakers listing Seattle -4.5 back in April.

Other discrepancies include: Arizona (were +1, now -5.5), Chicago (were +1, now -7), Carolina (were +2, now -7), Jets (were +5, now -1), and Washington (were +3, now -4).

Lines will be moving throughout the week as the market changes so be sure to keep up at our Free Live Odds page.
