Week 10’s odds are on the move with action forcing sportsbooks to adjust their numbers before the weekend. We talk to Mike Perry of about the biggest mid-week line moves and where those odds could end up come Sunday:

Oakland Raiders at New York Giants – Open: -5.5, Move: -7.5

The Raiders were early 5.5-point road underdogs in New York but after their one-sided squash versus Philadelphia, bettors have driven this line past the key number of the touchdown.

“A couple hours after we opened, we got wiseguy play on Giants -5.5, so we moved to current number of -7.5,” says Perry. “Expect us to stay on this number until kickoff with 63 percent of the money on the Raiders.”

Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons
– Open: +7, Move: +6

Atlanta isn’t the contender it was last season but Seattle’s unimpressive outings have action on the home underdog, moving this line off a TD and as low as Falcons +6 at some markets.

“Sunday night, we took a sharp play on Falcons +7, so moved to the present number of +6.5,” says Perry. “About 69 percent of money is on Seattle.”

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears – Open: +2.5, Move: +1

Is Jay Cutler in or out? The early money was banking on a return from the Bears No. 1 QB, and it looks like Cutler will be under center after being cleared to play Sunday.

“Earlier today got a sharp play on Chicago +2, so moved to +1.5,” says Perry. “It appears the Bears are in good hands no matter who starts at quarterback. About 75 percent of the cash is on the Lions.”

St. Louis Rams at Indianapolis Colts – Open: +12, Move: +9.5

The Rams bring their feared pass rush to Indianapolis and it appears wiseguys like Jeff Fisher’s squad on the road in Week 10, bumping this spread as many as two points past the key number of 10 with 75 percent of the action on St. Louis.

“St. Louis is a very popular play with sharps,” says Perry. “On Monday, they went from +12 to +10 and on Tuesday made another move in their favor to the current number.”

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers – Open: 56, Move: 59

Sharps haven’t stepped into the fray for this AFC West shootout, but the public is pushing this total as high as three points with 83 percent of wagers on the Over.

“A heavy majority is playing the Over, so on Wednesday we moved from 58 to 59,” says Perry.
