It’s interesting to see that New Orleans was actually listed as a 3.5-point favorite over the summer before opening as a 3-point underdog in their matchup with Atlanta. In early betting, the Saints are receiving just 16% of spread bets which could make them a fit for our 80/20 betting rule.
The Colts opened as 7-point home underdogs against the Patriots despite being listed as a 1-point favorites over the summer. That 8-point swing is easily the most of any Week 6 game.
The Bills were listed at -1 over the summer and also opened at -1 at Pinnacle, however, when it was announced that Tyrod Taylor was questionable with an ankle injury Buffalo dropped from -1 to +3. EJ Manuel is expected to start if Taylor is unable to play.
