Note that there is an NFL game on Thursday evening.
The opening lines are out for this week’s upcoming NFL action, and what does the early betting action say? Please visit our blog and read our series of Sports Marketwatch articles for updated information during the week.
St. Louis Rams vs. Atlanta Falcons
This game is currently the most lopsided-bet game of the week. The St. Louis Rams still don’t get much respect, even though they have been playing competitive football, posting a 4-5 record this year. The Falcons have been flying high, and come off an impressive win at home against Baltimore. Interestingly, the line has been edging towards the Rams, indicating some early sharps getting on the home dog.

Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys
The early betting action on this game has been interesting. The Cowboys may have finally woken up — and betting activity has been heavy. In addition, there has been early “reverse line” movement — with early sharps not believing that “one game” makes a complete turnaround. Although the public is backing the Cowboys, the line has moved from the opening line of Dallas -7 down to Dallas -6.5.
