Thursday Night Football Betting Trends: Jaguars vs. Falcons

Thursday Night Football Betting Trends: Jaguars vs. Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons opened as 10.5 point favorites at the market-setting Cris sportbook and, according to Sports Insights’ NFL Betting Trends, is currently receiving 62% of all spread bets. This slanted betting percentage has shifted the line 3 points to -13.5.

The Falcons are playing with a number of key offensive players battling injuries, which is a situation that bears monitoring. Although none of these injuries seem serious, Harry Douglas (Groin), Julio Jones (Back) and Michael Turner (Groin) all appear on the team’s injury report. For up to the minute news on these players, make sure to visit our NFL injuries page.

A majority of the market-setting books have this game available at -13.5, although there are books offering this game at both sides of that figure with Canbet laying 12 and Jazz offering 14. Those discrepancies, particularly when dealing with a key number like 14, help to once again show the importance of shopping for the best line. In fact, for those that are interested, a number of sportsbooks (including Sportsbet and 5dimes) have made Atlanta more than a two touchdown favorite with a line of -14.5 (+105).
