Week 11 NFL Lines

It’s getting down to do-or-die for some teams in the NFL. There are 13 games on the slate in Week 11, and all eyes will be centered on the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football. Some operators posted an over/under of 64 on that game early in the week. That’s the highest total since these bets first started being recorded in 1986.

Here’s a look at all of the spreads and totals at New Jersey sportsbooks for Week 11, along with analysis for each matchup. Check back during the week for updated odds.

Week 11 betting breakdown

Packers at Seahawks (-2.5): The teams will meet for the fifth straight regular season. GB has won the last three. The total opened at 49.5 across the board except at BetStars which gave a half-point value to the over.

Panthers at Lions (-3.5): Carolina leads the series 6-2 overall, including a 27-24 win last year. No value bets on this game as of Monday morning but keep an eye on the lines during the week.

Texans (-2.5) at Redskins: Not a consensus game so far between two division leaders. DraftKings, SugarHouse, and 888sport gave the home team a half-point extra value at open. William Hill and BetStars gave a half-point to the over.

Steelers (-5.5) at Jaguars: Rematch of the AFC Divisional round shootout won by Jacksonville, who also won at Heinz Field last October. Another contentious spread: FanDuel, William Hill, and MGM all give a half-point extra value to the home team at open.

Titans at Colts (-3): Tennessee swept the series last year, stopping an 11-game winning streak for Indy. Can Mariota and the Titans stay hot with another road win?

Buccaneers at Giants (-1): The Giants had won five in a row against Tampa before dropping a 25-23 decision last year. William Hill has opened this as a PK on Monday.

Cowboys at Falcons (-3): FanDuel was the only operator to list this game on Monday. Atlanta has won the last three in this rivalry, including a dominant 27-7 victory last season.

Bengals at Ravens: No prices on this game available on Monday because of the uncertainty of QB Joe Flacco. His Ravens are 2-7 in the last nine meetings of this divisional rivalry.

Broncos at Chargers (-7): The teams split the last two seasons after Denver dominated the series by winning eight of the previous nine. Another game with less consensus on Monday as DK, PlaySugarHouse and 888Sport all gave a half-point of value to the Chargers.

Raiders at Cardinals (-4): Some recency bias goes towards the home team who covered the big number on the road last week against the Chiefs. Prices here are consistent across the board.

Eagles at Saints: No prices as of Monday. The spread will most likely depend on how healthy the Eagles’ depleted secondary appears heading into this game. Look for a big number for the total as well.

Vikings at Bears (-2.5): Big legitimacy test for both QBs in a high-stakes divisional matchup. Slight line move towards the visitors in the early morning, but FanDuel, BetStars, and PlayMGM still offered the half-point extra value for Minnesota.

Chiefs vs. Rams (-3.5): The total could end up being the highest we’ve ever seen for an NFL game. William Hill is offering a half-point extra value to the Chiefs and the under. The Chiefs (8-2) have been really good ATS this year; the Rams (4-6) have not.

NFL Week 10 Lines And NJ Betting Guide

NFL Week 10 Lines

We’ve officially reached the second half of the NFL schedule. The games are bigger, as are the stakes.

Last week, FanDuel Sportsbook announced that it will start offering look-ahead prices about 10 days before kickoff (the Wednesday of the prior week). This is a common practice in Nevada and we’re curious if other oddsmakers in New Jersey will follow suit.

This is a good thing for all parties. Players can strategize and try to find value in a longer window, while the books have more time to collect data and find out what’s best for their clientele.

Here’s a look at the spreads and totals for the Week 10 NFL slate at NJ sportsbooks.

Week 10 betting breakdown

Panthers at Steelers (-4): Intriguing matchup to start between two hot teams in playoff positions. Look for value in this one: Most books dropped this line from PIT -5.5 early Monday morning. While it’s moving through a dead number, that 1.5-point move is eye-raising.

Cardinals at Chiefs (-16.5): This is a huge number to swallow but the Chiefs are 7-1 ATS this season and the market continues to adjust. After opening at KC -13 on FanDuel last week, the line moved 3.5 points after KC’s thumping of Cleveland on Sunday. The Cardinals are coming off the bye.

Falcons (-4) at Browns: Recency bias goes to the Falcons after their big win over Washington (and Cleveland’s continued dysfunction). Matt Ryan enters only 3-7 against the AFC North but did win his only start at the Browns in 2010.

Bills at Jets (-7.5): The Jets enter having won six of the last eight at home against Buffalo. This is a big number to cover considering the total opened at only 37.5 and the Jets offense ranks near the bottom of the league in scoring.

Lions at Bears (-6.5): Chicago hosts Detroit with a chance to extend their divisional lead over idle Minnesota. Detroit has won nine of the last 10 in the rivalry. FanDuel gave the visitors a half-point extra value on Monday.

Jaguars at Colts (-3): Two teams fighting to stay alive in the AFC South. This is a streaky series: Jacksonville has won four of the last five after dropping six straight to Indy. Fanduel gives the visitors a half-point extra value.

Saints (-5) at Bengals: Drew Brees has split four starts against Cincinnati and enters only 9-11 overall against the AFC North. Pricing disagreements on this game at open: BetStars gave a half-point extra value to the visitors and a full point to the over. FanDuel offered a full point to the Saints and over.

Redskins at Buccaneers (-2): Interesting pricing decision at open even with Ryan Fitzpatrick entering 4-1 in his career against Washington. BetStars and William Hill offered a half-point extra value to the home team, while FanDuel gave that half-point to the visitors. Watch this line over the week.

Patriots (-6) at Titans: FanDuel was the only book with this game on the board on Monday. Tom Brady enters 5-1 against Tennessee, with the loss coming back in 2002.

Chargers (-10) at Raiders: Phillip Rivers enters 17-8 against Oakland, his best record against any team. William Hill gave LA’s new AFC tenant a half-point extra value on Monday. Teams that lost on Thursday have bounced back to a 5-3 record the next week.

Seahawks at Rams (-10): LA has won five of the last seven in this rivalry including a 33-31 decision last month. The Rams have failed to cover four of the last five games so this number could move significantly.

Dolphins at Green Bay (-9): FanDuel was the only NJ book pricing this game as Ryan Tannehill’s status remains uncertain. Brock Osweiler has lost his only matchup against the Packers but is 4-3 overall against the NFC North.

Cowboys at Eagles (-5.5): Remember last year when Vegas opened this game at Philly -3.5 and everyone bought in? Then the line moved to -7 and the Eagles still covered and Vegas got soaked? Yeah, this time the books are ready.

Giants at 49ers (-3): Sadly, this game can’t be flexed out for any of the much better choices on the Week 10 slate. Eli Manning does enter 5-3 against San Fran, including the 2011 NFC Title game win.

Week 9 NFL NJ Betting

We’re at the halfway point of the NFL season with only 13 games on the schedule this week. In this article we take a look at how sportsbooks are pricing them early, and how lines move during the week.

This is a pretty important week for the New Jersey sports betting market. Both the Eagles and Giants, responsible for a big chunk of action over the first two months, are on bye. The betting public has been hitting winners the past two weeks, so can they carry this momentum into November? Here are the latest Week 9 NFL lines at the NJ books.

Week 9 betting breakdown

Raiders at 49ers (-2.5): Both teams coming off late losses Sunday. FanDuel and BetStars each priced the Raiders at +3.5 on Monday afternoon but the line moved toward during the week Oakland. Nick Mullens will start for the Niners.

Falcons at Redskins (-2.5): Washington opened as a short home favorite after winning three in a row, but Matt Ryan enters the matchup 4-0 against them. Early steam on Sunday moved this to WAS -2.5 at some books.

Chiefs (-8.5) at Browns: KC enters hot and has won three of the last four in this matchup. The Browns won the last meeting in Cleveland — in 2012. The spread and total on this game have been mostly static all week, even with the coaching changes in Cleveland.

Steelers at Ravens (-1): The home team gets the slight nod over one of the hottest teams in the league. The Ravens have won 4 of the last 5 at home against the Steelers, which might explain the three-point line at open. However, books dropped this as low as BAL -1 on Sunday.

Jets at Dolphins (-3): Weather is expected to play a factor in this one, which would explain the total dropping several points all the way down to 41 on Sunday. With Ryan Tannehill out at least a couple more weeks, Brock Osweiler is a home favorite.

Buccaneers at Panthers (-6): Ryan Fitzpatrick replaces Jameis Winston under center in Tampa. Carolina gets the recency bias at home and has won eight of the last 10 in the rivalry.

Lions at Vikings (-5): FanDuel was the first to post this game at Vikes -5 and is stayed within a point at most books during the week. Detroit’s Matthew Stafford is 8-8 in his career against Minnesota.

Bears (-10.5) at Bills: This game was completely off the board Monday as Josh Allen and others’ availability remained in question. On Tuesday, the Bills announced that Nathan Peterman will be back under center on Sunday. Buffalo has been significant underdogs in their other two games against NFC North opponents.

Texans at Broncos (-1): The Broncos got early the nod from books, but the line moved toward Houston to a PK at several books on Tuesday. Note: Teams who won the previous week’s Thursday night game are 2-5 the next game this season. Houston won easily against Monday last Thursday.

Chargers at Seahawks (-1): Phillip Rivers enters 10-4 against NFC West foes. This opened at SEA -2 at most books but the Chargers are getting the steam late in the week coming off the bye.

Rams (-1.5) at Saints: FanDuel opened this with the highest total (60) seen since 2004, but it dropped several points leading into the weekend. Drew Brees enters a career 3-5 against the Rams. FanDuel listed this as a pick’em at open, then the line moved to Saints -2 on Tuesday, and then swung back into the Rams favor late in the week.

Packers at Patriots (-4.5): This marks only the second time Brady and Rodgers have faced off. They tried this years ago and we got Matt Flynn under center against the Pats. Aaron Rodgers enters 19-18 in November, his worst month as a starter.

Titans at Cowboys (-4.5): Dallas has won three of the last four against Tennessee. The Cowboys opened -6 but the line has dropped to as low as -4 as of Sunday morning.

Week 8 betting breakdown

Dolphins at Texans (-7.5): Expect to see Brock Osweiler again on the short week as Ryan Tannehill remains doubtful for the Dolphins. The Texans opened with a half-point extra value at 888Sport while the under (45) got half-point at FanDuel.

Eagles (-3) vs. Jaguars: Both teams travel across the pond to London with their promising seasons in flux. It looks like Bortles will start, so this line will likely stay near a field goal until kickoff.

Jets at Bears (-7): Intriguing match-up between two young QBs with potent offenses. Recency bias favors the hot home team who gave a good effort against the Pats last week.

Seahawks at Lions (-3): The Seahawks have won 4 of the last 5 in this meeting, but the home is favored by a field goal team at most books. Bettors could find some value on a key number at BetStars and FanDuel as of Monday.

Broncos at Chiefs (-9): FanDuel had the first price on this game, a rematch of the Monday Night thriller earlier this year. All of the books listed it at KC -10 as of Wednesday. KC going for seven wins in a row against its division rival, which could factor into this large number.

Buccaneers at Bengals (-4.5): Despite getting thumped Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium, the Bengals opened as a sizeable favorite  (-6) at home. The number dropped to -4.5 at several books on Wednesday. Bengals QB Andy Dalton enters 4-1-1 against the NFC South, including a 14-13 win in Tampa in 2014. FanDuel was the only book offering this game on Monday morning.

Browns at Steelers (-8): Pittsburgh enters off the bye with momentum. Cleveland looks for its first win in Pittsburgh since 2003. Watch for the total to move.

Redskins (-1) at Giants: This screams regional bias. Watch for the line to move following the Monday night game the Giants play in Atlanta. Eli Manning does enter the game 18-9 against Washington, his best record against an NFC East foe.

Ravens (-1.5) at Panthers: The books give the visitors the edge despite their narrow loss at home in Week 7. This will be Carolina’s first home game as an underdog despite being 3-0 in Charlotte.

Colts (-3) at Raiders: This may be the most disagreement at week’s start we’ve seen all season on a spread. FanDuel listed this a pick’em on Monday, while William Hill favored the Colts by a point, and the line moved quickly after news of the Raiders trading Amari Cooper. Andrew Luck has split two starts against the Raiders, losing in Oakland in 2016.

Packers at Rams (-9.5): Aaron Rodgers has never been this big an underdog as a starter before. He and the Pack were getting 8.5 at BetStars on Monday, but the line keeps inching toward the Rams.

49ers at Cardinals (-1): Interesting to see Arizona favored at home after Denver blasted them in Glendale and knocked QB Josh Rosen out of the game. The Cardinals get the recency bias as they look for eight in a row against the Niners, following the 28-18 win at Levi’s Stadium earlier this month.

Saints at Vikings (PK): Remember the old days (well, like 10-20 years ago) when the Sunday night game got moved to Thursdays so the NFL wouldn’t go heads-up against the World Series? How things have changed. The NFC Divisional rematch may draw some viewers from baseball.

Patriots (-14) at Buffalo: Tom Brady enters 28-3 against the Bills in his career. The Bills are coming off another embarassing loss, which is surely playing into this massive number for the Patriots.

Week 7 betting breakdown

Denver (-1) at Arizona: Broncos get the nod from the books despite not winning yet on the road. Might be the recency bias as they covered against the Rams at home. The Cards have lost all their home games but are 2-1 ATS.

Tennessee vs. LA Chargers (-6.5) in London: A 6:30 a.m. local kickoff for the Bolts, so fans in LA will get home from their Saturday night festivities just in time for kickoff. Philip Rivers enters 6-1 against the Titans.

Carolina at Philadelphia (-4.5): Philly won last year’s meeting at Carolina on a Thursday night. Fanduel is giving the home team a half-point extra value.

New England (-1) at Chicago: Another week, another Brady vs. rising star QB matchup. Brady enters 4-0 against the Bears. FanDuel was the first to price this game in NJ.

Minnesota (-3) at NY Jets: This might be a case of regional bias with the books expecting the Jets to stay hot at home against a Super Bowl contender. Kirk Cousins lost his only start against the Jets while playing for Washington in 2015.

Cleveland at Tampa Bay (-3.5): Two Heisman-winning QBs face off, both coming off a loss. Tampa has won three of the last four in this series.

Houston at Jacksonville (-4.5): This game will help settle the three-way logjam atop the AFC South. Since 2011, whoever wins the season’s first matchup has won the second (5 of 7 times it’s been the Texans). BetStars and William Hill have a half-point extra value on the over.

Buffalo at Indianapolis (-7.5): Books waited until Tuesday for the injury status of Bills QB Josh Allen, who has been ruled out for the game. Derek Anderson will get the start under center. Andrew Luck is 1-1 SU and ATS in his career against the Bills.

Detroit (-3) at Miami: This game wasn’t posted until mid-week when the Dolphins named Brock Osweiler the starting QB for the second straight week. Matthew Stafford won (and covered) his only previous career start against Miami.

New Orleans at Baltimore (-2.5): The Ravens get the recency bias after their dominant win at Tennessee but the Saints have had an extra week of rest coming off the bye.

Dallas (-1) at Washington: Both teams played well in home wins last week. Dak Prescott enters 4-0 in starts against the division rivals and covered both times in Landover. Curious to see how the NJ bettors move this game between the NFC foes.

LA Rams (-9) at San Francisco: The Rams keep winning but haven’t covered in the last two weeks. William Hill has a half-point extra value on the Niners, while FanDuel opened with a full extra point on the spread.

Cincinnati at Kansas City (-6): In the first SNF “flex game” of the season, both teams enter off gut-wrenching late losses. Andy Dalton won both career starts against the Chiefs.

NY Giants at Atlanta (-3.5): Matt Ryan and Eli Manning have split their four meetings, with the Falcons winning the only one in Atlanta. FanDuel holds the most pro-Giants positions of the NJ books, offering a half-point extra value to the visitors and the under as of Monday.

Week 6 betting breakdown

Seattle (-3) vs. Oakland (London): Two West Coast teams playing in the early window eight time zones away from home? Yeah, this should be interesting.

Philadelphia (-3) at NY Giants: This will be really interesting because it’s the first regular season game where both teams carry regional bias in New Jersey. Most books get more action on Big Blue than the Eagles in NJ. Eli Manning enters the game 10-18 against Philly.

Arizona at Minnesota (-10.5): Again, Minnesota enters the biggest favorite of the weekend coming off a road victory in Philly. They have won the last eight games at home against the Cardinals, who last won in Minnesota in 1977.

Chicago (-3) at Miami: The Bears’ hot September gives them some steam coming off the bye week. Miami has lost two straight after starting the year 0-3. The Dolphins melted in the fourth quarter in Week 5.

Indianapolis at NY Jets (-2.5): The Jets open as a favorite after the convincing win at home against Denver. Colts backers got an extra half-point value at William Hill on Monday. Andrew Luck enters the game 1-2 against the Jets.

Tampa Bay at Atlanta (-3): The teams have split the last six games in this divisional rivalry. BetStars offered an half-point extra value at open for the Bucs, who are coming off the bye week.

LA Chargers at Cleveland (-1): Don’t like the favorite traveling cross country for the early kick? William Hill and BetStars opened the Browns at +1.5 on Monday, but then the line moved 2.5 points to Browns -1.

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (-1): The red-hot Bengals open as a +2.5 favorite despite having lost eight of the last nine against the Steelers.

Carolina at Washington (-1): Interesting discrepancies between Kambi books (DraftKings, SugarHouse, 888sport) and other operators as of Tuesday. The Redskins were -4 at open at Kambi, and -1 at the rest of the books. The line moved to CAR -1 on Saturday.

Buffalo at Houston (-10): No book had posted this game as of Tuesday as they waited on Deshaun Watson’s status. Most listed at HOU -10 as of Thursday morning. The Texans have won three of the last four meetings, include the last two in Texas.

LA Rams (-7) at Denver: The Rams have won the last three in this series. Expect the total (52) to move on this one during the week.

Baltimore (-2.5) at Tennessee: Both teams coming off upset losses on the road last week. Tennessee has won the last two match-ups at home.

Jacksonville (-3) at Dallas: Every book opened this at Jags -3. The Jags’ loss at KC might give a boost for Dallas while keeping the total on the lower side.

Kansas City at New England (-3.5): No recency bias here for the undefeated Chiefs as Mahomes takes on the Pats. BetStars and FanDuel opened this at -3.5 and some of the other books followed by adding the hook.

San Francisco at Green Bay (-9.5): Aaron Rodgers enters the game 3-2 against the Niners. FanDuel gave a half-point extra value to the visitors at open but dropped the line back to -9.5 on Tuesday.

Week 5 betting breakdown

Indianapolis at New England (-10): FanDuel, MGM and William Hill gave the half-point extra value to the Colts as of Tuesday. Tom Brady has won the last five against Indy but is only 2-3 ATS in those games.

Tennessee (-5.5) at Buffalo: The AFC South leaders opened as the favorites with +100 or higher at most books to cover the field goal and half-point kicker. The line moved two points at most books to TEN -5 or 5.5 during the week. The Titans have won their last three games in Buffalo.

Miami at Cincinnati (-6): Miami is coming off an embarrassing first loss at New England, while the Bengals marched out of Atlanta with a win as a dog. William Hill added a half-point extra value to the Dolphins at open and held at -5.5 as of Tuesday. Andy Dalton is 1-2 SU and ATS against Miami.

Green Bay at Detroit (-1) : This opened at 1 or 1.5 at all of the NJ books in favor of the road team but moved in favor of the Lions over the weekend. Aaron Rodgers is 13-3 in his career against the Lions.

Jacksonville at Kansas City (-3): Mahomes gets another test against a tough pass rush after facing Denver on Monday night. The Jags got a nice backdoor cover in their last visit to KC in 2016.

NY Giants at Carolina (-6.5): FanDuel gave the local team a half-point extra value at open but this is likely to close at 7. Cam Newton is 2-1 SU but 1-2 ATS against Big Blue.

Baltimore (-3) at Cleveland: Cleveland lost its first game ATS last week in Oakland. Every NJ operator listed this at Ravens -3 as of Tuesday.

Denver (-1) at NY Jets: This one opened with the Jets favored after Denver’s Monday night loss to the Chiefs, but all of the books listed the Broncos as the road favorite as of Sunday morning.

Atlanta at Pittsburgh (-3): Can we say must-win for two playoff favorites who have struggled in September? Big Ben has won both of his match-ups against Matty Ice.  The 57-point total is the highest of the year s far.

Oakland at LA Chargers (-5.5): Both teams coming off close wins. Phillip Rivers enters Sunday 16-8 in his career against the Raiders.

LA Rams (-7) at Seattle: The teams have split the four games since the Rams moved back to Los Angeles. This opened at -6.5 on FanDuel but moved to 7 as of Tuesday.

Minnesota at Philadelphia (-3): The Eagles have won four of the last five against the Vikings, including the NFC title game in January. Kirk Cousins enters 4-3 against Philly from his days with Washington.

Arizona at San Francisco (-4): The Niners were favored at open despite having lost the last six against the Cardinals.

Dallas at Houston (-3.5): Unfortunately, it’s too early to flex this game out for a better one on Sunday night. Some of the books are giving Dallas the hook at +3.5 as of Tuesday.

Washington at New Orleans (-6.5): Drew Brees enters the Monday night game 3-4 against Washington. FanDuel was the only book to set this at Saints -7 as of Tuesday.

Week 4 betting breakdown

Vikings at Rams (-6.5): The Rams are the new Super Bowl favorites and have looked very impressive to start the season. FanDuel opened the total at 49.5, while William Hill and BetStars opened at 49 (same -110 price as other books).

NY Jets at Jaguars (-7.5): Two teams looking for bounce-back wins after disappointing losses. The Jets have won the last four in the series, including three straight at the Meadowlands.

Eagles (-3.5) at Titans: FanDuel was the only book with the spread, total and moneyline listed on Monday, while William Hill was the only spread-only offer. These prices could easily change once the Titans name a starter. Carson Wentz is 6-9 SU on the road but 7-8 ATS.

Bills at Packers (-9.5): For the second week in a row, the Bills open as a big underdog on the road against an NFC North opponent. Aaron Rodgers defeated Buffalo 34-7 in their last meeting at Lambeau in 2010. The Bills are getting a half-point of value at William Hill.

Bengals at Falcons (-3.5): The only book offering the total and ML as of Monday was FanDuel. Others followed on Tuesday by opening at ATL -5 0r -5.5. The number dropped closer to a field goal by Saturday. Andy Dalton won the only meeting against Matt Ryan in Cincinnati in 2014.

Texans at Colts (-1): Seemingly a must-win game for the 0-3 Texans. Andrew Luck is 3-1 at home all-time against his AFC South rivals (SU and ATS). The line opened at IND -2.5 and quickly moved to 1.5 at most books.

Buccaneers at Bears (-3): William Hill installed the Bucs as underdogs on before the Week 3 Monday night game, and the line moved half a point to CHI -3 on Tuesday. 

Detroit at Dallas (-3): This line could hold steady at DAL -3 all the way until kickoff. Dallas has won three of the last four hosting the Lions.

Dolphins at Patriots (-7): The Patriots have struggled this year, while the Dolphins travel to Foxboro undefeated. The Pats get the recency bias in this series, having won the last nine home games against Miami.

Browns at Raiders (-3): The Browns are 3-0 ATS this season. Oakland, which has won the last four matchups, gets an extra half-point value at William Hill.

Seahawks (-3) at Cardinals: Seattle has won four of the last five games in Glendale (the other game was the 6-6 tie in 2016). Arizona got an extra half-point value at William Hill at open.

Saints (-3.5) at Giants: Does that opening total of 50 seem high? Four of the last five matchups saw the teams combine for at least 73 points.

49ers at Chargers (-10.5): Only a couple books had this game on the board on Monday awaiting the diagnosis for Jimmy Garoppolo. With Jimmy G officially out for the year, this spread might move in favor of LA during the week.

Ravens at Steelers (-3.5): Interesting to note here that BetStars listed PIT -1 on Wednesday afternoon. The Steelers have won four of the last five against Baltimore at Heinz Field.

Chiefs (-4.5) at Broncos: Chiefs get the recency bias with the 3-0 start and Patrick Mahomes record start (13 TDs in the first 3 games). KC has five wins in a row against their rivals, including the last three at Denver.

Week 3 betting breakdown

NY Jets at Cleveland (-3): No regional bias in this matchup, despite bettors taking the Jets all preseason. Cleveland may have a new placekicker by Thursday night. Interesting note: While most of the book posted 40 or 40.5 for the total, 888sport has 43 with -143 on the under (+117 on the over) as of Thursday afternoon.

Colts at Eagles (-7): Carson Wentz will return under center for the Eagles, which leaves Philly as the considerable favorite. Wentz has won his last eight starts at home and is 12-2 there overall (11-3 ATS).

Saints at Falcons (-3): Recency bias might be a factor here with the Saints failing to cover their first two games this year. The Falcons have won 3 of the last 4 at home against their division rivals.

49ers at Chiefs (-6): Intriguing matchup of two rising star QBs. Books offering the total have it at 55.5 or higher, the biggest one so far this season.

Raiders at Dolphins (-3): Miami gets the nod despite losing to Oakland at home last year. Dolphins bettors could avoid the half-point kicker at FanDuel as of Monday afternoon.

Bills at Vikings (-16.5): This might be the biggest spread we see all season. Since the start of last season, Minnesota is 9-1 at home (6-3 ATS with two half-point misses).

Bengals at Panthers (-3): Despite the 2-0 (SU and ATS) start, the Bengals finds themselves underdogs on the road. The last time Carolina hosted Cincinnati was 2010, a win by Carson Palmer.

Titans at Jaguars (-9.5): Both teams coming off emotional wins in Week 2, Tennessee winning without Marcus Mariota. The Jags have won 3 of the last 4 at home to the Titans.

Packers (-3) at Redskins: If Aaron Rodgers practices more this week than last, watch for this line to move. Fun fact: Rodgers is 0-2 at Fedex Field. His only win over Washington was in the 2015 Wild Card round.

Broncos at Ravens (-6): Denver makes it 3-for-3 this week in teams traveling two time zones or more opening as significant underdogs. Joe Flacco is 2-1 against Denver at home, a team that hasn’t visited Baltimore since 2012.

Giants at Texans (-6.5): Two teams looking for their first win. Houston making its home debut.  Eli Manning has won all three starts against Houston.

Chargers at Rams (-7): This is an intriguing matchup that could see significant line movement over the week. William Hill opened it at a full touchdown and most of the other books have followed.

Bears (-6.5) at Cardinals: Bold call here by William Hill to open the Bears a sizable favorite on a short week and traveling. The line has moved to 5.5 as of Sunday morning.

Cowboys at Seahawks (-1): Two underachieving teams at the start of the year, but Dallas got a win last Sunday at home. Now traveling to Seattle to face the 12th man as a short underdog.

Patriots (-6.5) at Lions: This seems easy: Patriots HC Bill Belichick is excellent against his former assistants and is 4-0 against Detroit.

Steelers (-1) at Bucs: FitzMagic is a dog — again. The Steelers are favorites despite Le’Veon Bell’s holdout — again.

Baltimore (-1) at Cincinnati: Both teams won and covered in Week 1. Installing Baltimore as a road favorite seemed curious, especially considering their win last year was the first in Cincinnati since 2011. But the line since moved in the Bengals’ favor.

Kansas City at Pittsburgh (-5): The line on Pittsburgh dropped multiple points after LeVeon Bell extended his holdout into Week 1. Facing the Chiefs off an upset win against the Chargers, this could be the biggest moving line of the week.

Miami at NY Jets (-2.5): The Jets opened as an early underdog despite not playing until Monday in Detroit. Interestingly, FanDuel was the only book that installed them underdog without the half-point kicker. Following the Monday night win, the line moved to Jets -2.5 or -3 at most books. The Meadowlands location saw a lot of public action on Gang Green this offseason.

Philadelphia (-3) at Tampa Bay: The Eagles won the season opener despite the spread dropping throughout the week. Tampa won outright as the highest ML dog at New Orleans. This line will be worth watching if the regional bias goes the world champs’ way this week.

Cleveland at New Orleans (-8): The Saints fell at home as a massive favorite to Tampa, while the Browns tied after late support on the spread. The 50 total tied for the highest on the board as of Monday night but the Steelers/Chiefs total quickly flew up to 53.5.

Indianapolis at Washington (-5.5): The home debut for Alex Smith and Adrian Peterson sees Washington a strong favorite. The Colts’ late collapse at home to Cincinnati might scare away bettors.

LA Chargers (-7.5) at Buffalo: Both teams are looking for a bounce-back after disappointing losses in Week 1. The Chargers are the biggest road favorite this weekend going cross-country so watch for this line to move, particularly if Josh Allen gets his first start at home.

Carolina at Atlanta (-5.5): Neither offense impressed in Week 1. Atlanta is the home favorite, perhaps pushed by recency bias, as the Falcons have won the last three and seven of the last nine at home against the Panthers.

Minnesota at Green Bay (No line): Only FanDuel had this game on the board Monday afternoon with the Packers a slight favorite. It was back off the board as of Saturday afternoon.

Houston (-3) at Tennessee: Recent history suggested that Tennessee would be a home favorite. But injuries to QB Marcus Mariota and two Titans starting offensive lineman moved the line toward Houston.

Arizona at LA Rams (-13): The 10-point opening spread was the biggest of Week 2, and most books moved it to -13 following the Rams’ performance in Oakland on Monday night.

Detroit at San Francisco (-5.5): The Niners are the established favorite across the board, especially after the Lions put up a stinker at home on Monday night.

Oakland at Denver (-5.5): Denver’s win against Seattle has earned the books’ confidence. Recent history helps this stance, as the Broncos are 5-1 at home in the last six against their division rivals.

New England (-1) at Jacksonville: Both teams won convincingly in their season openers. All of the books give the Pats the edge here going on the road, but some listed it as a PK as of Saturday.

NY Giants at Dallas (-3): Dallas is the favorite at home despite neither team looking impressive in opening losses. Regional biases could see these lines drop, especially at FanDuel which gave the G-Men a half-point kicker to open.

Seattle at Chicago (-3.5): Both teams will look to bounce back in Week 2. The books install Chicago as a home favorite, with William Hill the only one making the spread an even FG at open.
