Where the action is: Sunday's NFL line moves

We talked to Mike Perry, oddsmaker for Sportsbook.ag, about the flow of action coming in on Sunday’s NFL games.

Carolina Panthers at Kansas City ChiefsOpen: +2.5, Move: +4

The Chiefs will be playing with heavy hearts after the suicide of LB Jovan Belcher and this game was taken off the board when news broke of the tragedy early Saturday morning. Since the game re-opened, money has been pouring in on the Panthers.

“It's tough to predict how someone will react to an unthinkable tragedy such as this,” Perry told Covers. “My opinion is that most of the Kansas City players will be more focused than usual as a result.”

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Denver BroncosOpen: -7, Move: -9.5

Offshores have the Broncos as high as 9.5-point favorites against the best cover team in the league heading into action on Sunday.

“Tampa Bay has been a bettor’s dream this season, but Peyton Manning is one of the top players that bettors love to back,” Perry notes. "Around 62 percent of the money is on the spread and behind the Broncos."

Houston Texans at Tennessee TitansOpen: +4.5, Move: +6.5

The Texans opened as low as 4-point faves at some books, but public money has been driving this spread up to nearly a touchdown.

“The Texans are the second-most popular early play,” according to Perry. "Over 80 percent of the cash is on the spread, trailing only Carolina (91%)."

Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets Open: -4, Move: -6

It’s been a long time since bettors have had any faith in Rex Ryan’s Jets, but the money is pouring in on them at home against a Cardinals squad that has dropped seven straight games.

“We haven’t been this long on the Jets since their Week 1 game at Miami when New York was -1 and won 23-20,” says Perry. “Over 70 percent of the action is on the Jets.”
