NFL mid-week line moves: Brits remember Pats' dominance

Check out a few of the number fluctuations as we head toward the mid-point of the NFL season, with the help of Aron Black of bet365.com and Vegas handicapper extraordinaire Teddy Covers.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers

Consensus open: Packers -16
Move: None


We’re right back where we started from, for the most part. A few outliers had the line pretty thin at opening (12.5 at betonline.ag), but now everyone is pretty much on board at 15.5 or 16.

“It’s not unusual to see books shave a few points off on lines 14 or above,” notes Teddy, who himself figured the line for 18.

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys


Consensus open: Cowboys -1.5
Move: Giants -2


At bet365.com, heavy New York money has flipped the numbers.

“Dallas,” says Black, “is being swerved bi time. Amazing how things have changed for these teams since Week 1 (Cowboys got 3.5 and won outright.)”

New Orleans Saints at Denver Broncos


Consensus open: Broncos -5.5
Move: Broncos -6


“Denver has taken in some money,” says Teddy, “but nothing massive. Wouldn’t be shocked to see a move toward New Orleans as we get closer to kickoff.”

New England Patriots vs. St. Louis Rams (London)


Consensus open: Patriots -6.5
Move: Patriots -7


Black reports heavy interest among British bettors in this game. The Patriots made the trip over the ocean a few years ago and crushed Tampa Bay, so bettors on the island may remember that and the number was driven up that important extra half-point.

That Greenbay Jax line seems awfully big. Rodgers may be missing both of his number 1 and number 2 receivers. We have all seen how bad the O-Line has been there too. Are we really going to rely on Donald Driver to get opened fast enough for Rodgers to get the ball out to him before the pressure comes? And of course you can forget about the running game. Call me a sucker, but I will take the 2 TDs plus and see if the Jags can run the ball well enough to shorten the game and hang around for a little while.
