Opening line

Vikings -3.5, Over/Under 45

Why the line moved

UPDATE: 3:20 P.M. ET, THURSDAY DEC. 9: Running back Dalvin Cook is still, technically, a game-time decision for the Vikings tonight. The point spread is still holding steady at Minnesota -3, but there is increased vig on the side of the home favorites (-125 at DraftKings). Some books have popped the number to -3.5 already and if/when Cook is officially announced as active all remaining shops will surely follow, perhaps even as high as -4 by kickoff.

The total has bumped up slightly from 44 to 44.5 this afternoon.

Opening line

Football Team +4.5, Over/Under 49

Titans -11, Over/Under 43.5

Why the line moved

UPDATE 7:45 A.M. ET THURSDAY, DEC. 16: Now that Urban Meyer has been mercifully fired by the Jaguars, they can hopefully move forward as some semblance of a functional football team.

Why the line moved

That caused the spread to rapidly shift from 2.5 points back to Cardinals -3, further pushing bettors towards an Arizona side that was already getting 58% of support on our Covers Consensus.
