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).
