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

Oct 25, 2012 |
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 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, 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, 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.
