The third NFL Monday of the season is upon us. Week 3 gave us some big divisional matchups, like the thriller between Buffalo and Miami, as well as key conference clashes, like Green Bay at Tampa Bay and Kansas City at Indianapolis.
The NFL Week 3 odds were also all over the place throughout the week. The undefeated New York Giants opened as field-goal favorites over the disappointing Dallas Cowboys, but money on the visitors shrunk that spread to a single point in favor of the home squad entering Monday's finale.
Here are the latest Week 3 NFL odds, looking at the opening numbers and early line moves and action.

Browns -3.5, 40 O/U
Why the line moved
9:00 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: After climbing from Cleveland -3.5 to -5.5 earlier on the week with sharp play on the Browns, the public action has been all over Pittsburgh following Cleveland’s collapse against the Jets. The market consensus is Browns -4 but some shops like FanDuel are down to -3.5. BetMGM sportsbooks are reporting 66% of bets and 64% of handle on the Steelers. This total is sitting at 38.5 points after dropping from 40.5 earlier this week.
Previous Steelers at Browns action
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: After pro bettors pushed this line as high as Cleveland -5.5 earlier in the week, public play on Pittsburgh has slimmed this spread back down as low as -4 at PointsBet with the majority of the market at -4.5. According to DraftKings sportsbooks, the Steelers have drawn 72% of bets and 82% of handle. This total is sitting as low as 38 points after opening as high as 40.5.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: Action on the Browns has been heavy early in the week, pushing this spread from an opener of Cleveland -3.5 to -5.5 as of Tuesday morning. The Steelers offense has struggled to produce points in two weeks and now Pittsburgh faces its stiffest defensive test. That said, the Browns are down defensive linemen for this Thursday AFC North rivalry game. The total is sitting between 38.5 and 39.5 across the market.
1:21 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: Big moves to the Thursday Night Football numbers overnight Sunday and into Monday morning. The Browns opened as 3.5-point home favorites and that number has been pounded up to -4.5. The total was bet down from 40.5 to 38.5.
9:45 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Browns opened as 3.5-point home favorites in this AFC North rivalry, coming off an ugly collapse to the Jets in Week 2. The total opened at 40 points and has climbed to 41.5 points at some sharper offshore books. After two flat offensive performances, rumors are swirling about the Steelers QB job and whether rookie Kenny Pickett should get the start over struggling starter Mitchell Trubisky. Stay tuned…
Panthers +2.5, 40.5 O/U
Why the line moved
8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: The market consensus on this NFC South showdown is New Orleans -2.5, however, some books like PointsBet are down to -2 and the Panthers have drawn Sunday money the past two weeks. Saints QB Jameis Winston and RB Alvin Kamara were questionable earlier this week but are expected to play as of Sunday morning. This total is sitting at 41 points.
Previous Saints at Panthers action
9:00 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: Carolina has drawn money in its first two weeks of the season and is doing the same in Week 3 with the Saints coming off an ugly loss to Tampa Bay and having injuries on the offense. That has Carolina down from +3 to +2.5 home underdogs. PointsBet sportsbooks were reporting heavier action on NOLA overall, with 60% of bets but just 55% of handle on the visitor.
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: The Saints are up to 3-point chalk at many books but do have some injury news lingering later this week which could slim that spread. Early action in terms of ticket count and money has sided with New Orleans, with 68% of handle on the road team. This total is hovering around the opener of 40.5 points.
9:45 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: After both NFC South foes took losses in Week 2, the Panthers opened as 2.5-point home underdogs to the visiting Saints. The Over/Under total opened as high as 41 points and has slid down to 40.5 at many books with these offenses struggling to put up points.
Bears -3, Over/Under 38.5
Why the line moved
8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: Chicago had dipped to -2.5 earlier in the week but came back to a field goal favorite on the weekend. Some shops like PointsBet are back down to Chicago -2.5 on Sunday morning. Covers Consensus is showing 65% of picks on the Bears. The total is bouncing between 39 and 39.5 points. The weather in the Windy City is calling for potential rain around kickoff and wind gusts of 25 mph.
Previous Texans at Bears action
9:00 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: Chicago has slid back under the key number of a field goal hosting Houston in Week 3. The market consensus is Bears -2.5 with that line juiced heavily. PointsBet books are reporting 53% of bets on Chicago but 67% of the money taking the underdog Texans. This total is sitting at between 40 and 40.5 points.
1:43 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: After a brief stop at Bears -2.5, the point spread for this matchup bumped back up to the key number of -3 at most trusted sportsbooks Monday afternoon. The total was also bet up from 38.5/39 to 40.5.
10:15 A.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: After their loss to Green Bay on Sunday night, the Bears opened as field-goal favorites at home to Houston, but early money took the Texans. That has this spread as low as Chicago -2.5 at some markets. The total opened at 38.5 and is up to 39 points.
Colts +6, 49 O/U
Why the line moved
8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: After climbing as high as Kansas City -7 earlier in the week, the market consensus on this AFC collision is Chiefs -5.5. That said, some shops are as high as KC -6 and some sharper offshores are down to -5 on the visitor. Covers Consensus is showing 73% of picks on the Chiefs on Sunday morning. Sportsbooks like DraftKings were reporting 93% of bets and money on Kansas City entering the weekend.
Previous Chiefs at Colts action
9:15 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: The buyback on the Colts continued Wednesday into Thursday, with Indianapolis now down to +5.5 after getting as high as +7. PointsBet books are still heavy on Kansas City action, with the Chiefs drawing 79% of bets and 69% of the handle. Covers Consensus confirms that opinion with 77% of picks taking the visitor.
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: Buyback on the Colts has trimmed this spread from Kansas City -7 to -6.5 at some sportsbooks and some respected offshores are as low as -6 with midweek money on the home team. DraftKings, which also dropped to Chiefs -6.5, is reporting 94% of tickets and 93% of money on Kansas City. This total is now sitting at 49.5 points across the market after sinking to 47 points on Monday after opening at 49 points.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: Touchdown spreads are starting to show for the Chiefs at a number of books with early play taking Kansas City or, more accurately, fading the Colts, who are one of the most disappointing teams through two weeks of play. Covers Consensus shows 82% of picks are on the visiting Chiefs in Week 3. This total opened at 49 points and is now trending upward to 49.5 with a handful of 50-point totals on the board.
9:45 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The look-ahead line was originally Colts +3 but after Indianapolis opened 2022 with a tie and a loss, this spread re-opened with the home team at +6 and quickly jumped to +6.5 at many markets. The Chiefs have had a mini bye since beating the Chargers on Thursday. This total opened at 49 points and is out there from 48.5 to 49.5 on Sunday evening.
Dolphins +5.5, 51 O/U
Why the line moved
8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: The market consensus as of Sunday morning is Bills -4.5. BetMGM books are reporting 77% of bets and 75% of handle backing Buffalo on the road, but sharper play has sided with the host Dolphins this week — indicated by the reverse line movement which was sparked by injuries on the Buffalo defense. This total is at 53.5 points on Sunday morning with 81% of bets and 85% of money banking on the Over. Heat and humidity will be a factor on the field, with a "feels like" temperature flirting with 100 degrees this afternoon.
Previous Bills at Dolphins action
12:55 P.M. ET, SATURDAY, SEPT. 24: The Buffalo defense keeps taking hits, as it was announced this morning that starting safety Micah Hyde was placed on the IR and will miss the rest of the season with a neck injury. This puts the entire Bills starting secondary in danger of missing Sunday's game, with CB Dane Jackson already ruled out, star CB Tre'Davious White still sidelined with an ACL injury, and S Jordan Poyer questionable with a foot ailment. The total for this game has climbed up to 53 at most operators — tied for the highest number of Week 3.
3:00 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: Late week money on Miami has trimmed this spread to Dolphins +5, with some injury concerns on the Bills defense. There are a few +4.5 lines out there at random online shops. BetMGM is reporting 82% of ticket count and 76% of handle on the visiting Bills.
9:15 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: Injuries on both sides of the ball are stacking up for the Bills, who have dropped from as high as -6.5 to -5.5 as of Thursday morning. Miami’s miracle comeback over Baltimore isn’t winning over bettors at PointsBet, which is reporting 82% of bets and 92% of money siding with Buffalo. Covers Consensus is showing a more tempered approach to this AFC East rivalry, with 61% of picks on the Bills.
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: This could be the most exciting game of Week 3 and the total adjustment tells the story, leaping from an opening Over/Under of 51 points to as high as 54 at some shops. Covers Consensus shows 64% of picks on the Over as of Wednesday. The spread has also seen a move, shifting from Bills -5.5 to -6. DraftKings reporting 82% of bets and 92% of early money on Buffalo.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: The look-ahead line for this AFC East rivalry was Bills -4 in the summer. But following the Dolphins' dramatic comeback in Week 3 and Buffalo’s beatdown of Tennessee Monday night, this game re-opened the Bills as 5.5-point road chalk. Early action grabbed the visitor and has this spread up to Buffalo -6 with a climbing total of 52.5 points.
Vikings -7, 53 O/U
Why the line moved
8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: The Lions had a number of standouts on both sides of the ball pegged as questionable most of the week, and those players are expected to suit up Sunday. Detroit is a 6-point road underdog at Minnesota across the industry, but some sharper offshore books are below the key number at Minnesota -5.5. BetMGM books are reporting 70% of ticket count and 66% of handle is backing the road underdog Detroit. The total sits at 52.5 points as of Sunday morning.
Previous Lions at Vikings action
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: The Over is a tempting total bet given the number of points being scored in Lions games through two weeks. This total opened as low as 52 points and is now up to 53.5 with DraftKings reporting 92% of the money on the Over as of Wednesday. This spread has also moved, with money coming in against Minnesota since being handled by Philadelphia on Monday. The Vikings went from -7 to as low as -5.5 with 76% of tickets and 81% of money on Detroit.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: Look-ahead markets had Minnesota as a 7-point home favorite for Week 3 and even after a dud of a performance against Philadelphia on Monday, books re-opened this NFC North matchup at Vikings -7. They quickly took money on the Lions and this spread is as low as Vikings -6 at some mainstream markets. The total has fallen as well, slimming from 53 points to as low as 52.
Patriots +3, 44 O/U
Why the line moved
8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: The Ravens dropped from -3 to -2.5 midway through the week. Baltimore is expected to get RB J.K. Dobbins back for the first time this season as well as starters in the secondary. The Patriots have injury issues in their secondary heading into Sunday. While BetMGM books are reporting 80% of bets and money riding the Ravens, sharper money has come in on New England and that has anchored this spread under the key number of three.
Previous Ravens at Patriots action
12:39 P.M. ET, SATURDAY, SEPT 24: With OT Ronnie Stanley ruled out for Sunday's matchup, CBs Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey still questionable, and RB J.K. Dobbins still questionable to debut, this line has held at Ravens -2.5 at most books. Despite the slide, bettor confidence has remained high on Baltimore at PointsBet, where 92% of the money and 89% of tickets were on the favorites as of Friday evening — although those percentages are slightly lower than the Thursday morning splits.
9:15 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: With Lamar Jackson wearing a sleeve and limited in practice Wednesday (but still expected to play Sunday), the Ravens slumped from -3 to -2.5 at New England in Week 3. According to PointsBet books, 91% of bets and 95% of the money was on the visitor. Covers Consensus is showing 72% of picks backing Baltimore.
1:27 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: As of Monday morning the Patriots remain 3-point home dogs. The big movement in the first 24 hours came on the total, which has been bet down from 43.5/44/44.5 to the Monday number of 41.5.
10:00 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Patriots opened as 3-point underdogs at home to Baltimore in Week 3 with a small number of books at +2.5. The Ravens were cruising vs. Miami but collapsed in the second half. New England ground out an ugly win against the Steelers on Sunday. This total opened at 44 points and is out there between 43.5 and 44.5 points.
Jets +5, 43 O/U
Why the line moved
8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: Cincinnati is a 6-point favorite at most shops but some are showing extra juice on the -6 and Bengals -6.5 is popping up on Sunday morning. BetMGM books are reporting 80% of bets and 87% of money backing Burrow & Co. The total opened as low as 43 points, climbed to 45.5 and is sitting as low as 45 at some respected online shops.
Previous Bengals at Jets action
3:00 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: This line has been up and down, with Cincinnati climbing to -6 after mid-week play on their point spread. The total, which climbed from 43 points to 45.5, is now down to 44.5 at many books. BetMGM books are reporting 83% of bets and 94% of handle on the Bengals while more than 62% of ticket count and money is taking the Over.
1:32 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: Professional bettors hit the Over on this matchup late Sunday/early Monday and forced the books to push the total up from 43/43.5 up to the Monday number of 45.
10:00 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Jets opened as 5-point home pups coming off their thrilling come-from-behind win over Cleveland on Sunday while the Bengals are 0-2 to start 2022. The market has moved toward New York, with that spread as low as Jets +4 at Pinnacle. This total has also seen movement, jumping from 43 to 43.5 points.
Titans +1.5, 45.5 O/U
Why the line moved
8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: This line came down to Raiders -1.5 this week but is back up to -2 on Sunday with Las Vegas-based books padding for the public betting at -2.5. BetMGM is reporting a split in ticket and handle for this game, with 54% of bets on Las Vegas but 54% of the money on Tennessee. The total is sitting at 45.5 points.
Previous Raiders at Titans action
3:15 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: The Titans are between +1.5 and +2 hosting the Raiders, with BetMGM books reporting 56% of bets on Las Vegas but a 50/50 split in terms of handle. This total is sitting at 45.5 points across the market with 70% of the money banking on the Under.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: Look-ahead lines in the summer had Tennessee as a 2.5-point home favorite in Week 3. Following the Titans’ terrible performance on Monday night, the line re-opened Tennessee +1 at some places while others pegged it at +1.5. Since then, some books have jumped to +2.5. The total re-opened as high as 46.5 points with many shops dealing 45.5 for the Over/Under.
Commanders +5, 50 O/U
Why the line moved
8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: Philadelphia has climbed as high as -6.5 for this NFC East encounter in the nation’s capital. The look-ahead line for this game was set as low as pick’em back in the summer. The Eagles jumped from -4 to as high as -7 after their impressive win on Monday. However, BetMGM books are reporting 58% of bets are on Philadelphia but 58% of money is on Washington — indicating larger wagers buying back the Commanders at the bigger spread. Some sharper online books are dealing Philly -6 on Sunday morning, indicating the market may come back down closer to kickoff.
Previous Eagles at Commanders action
8:30 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: The Eagles love has been non-stop since mowing down Minnesota on Monday. Both pro and recreational action is all over Philadelphia in Week 3, driving his spread from -5 to as high as -6.5. DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting 87% of bets and 92% of handle backing the visiting Eagles. This total has also made a move, slimming from an opening O/U of 50 to as low as 47 points.
8 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, SEPT 20: The Eagles turned heads with their dominant performance over Minnesota on Monday and books opened the official Week 3 spread at Philadelphia -5. This has already climbed to -5.5 at some online shops. The total hit the board at 50 points but is down as low as 49 at sharp Vegas books.
Chargers -7, 48 O/U
Why the line moved
2:40 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 25: Justin Herbert is active for the Chargers in Week 3. The Bolts were as low as -3 this morning with his status set as a game-time decision. Books are slowly reacting to action with some placed up to -6 a few minutes after the news broke. This total was as low as 42 points and is now up to 43.5 points.
Previous Jaguars at Chargers action
8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: After Chargers star QB Justin Herbert was downgraded to doubtful with injured ribs on Friday, Los Angeles' spread slimmed from -7 to as low as -3 on Sunday morning. However, Herbert is now a game-time decision as of Sunday morning, which immediately pushed books to move to Chargers -3.5 or -3 with heavy juice. BetMGM has reported 58% of bets and 59% of money on the Bolts, but if Herbert is ruled out, expect the betting markets to run even lower as money sides with Jacksonville. This total took a tumble on the Herbert news as well, slimming from 47 to as low as 42.5 on Sunday morning, but the chance he does play has already brought this back to 43.
3:00 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: Chargers QB Justin Herbert is listed as doubtful for Week 3 after suffering a rib injury last Thursday. Los Angeles has fallen from -7 to as low as -3 after news hit late Friday afternoon. The total also adjusted, falling from 47.5 points to 42. The Bolts’ backup QB is veteran Chase Daniel, who hasn’t thrown a regular season pass since December 2020.
10:00 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Chargers opened as touchdown favorites at home to the Jaguars, with all eyes on the health of QB Justin Herbert. Herbert suffered a rib injury against Kansas City on Thursday and has a mini bye to get healthy for Week 3. This total opened at 48 points and the early move was down to 47.5.
Cardinals +5.5, 51 O/U
Why the line moved
9:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: Los Angeles has stayed steady at -3.5 most of the week after dropping from the opener of -4.5. The Rams have drawn 59% of picks, according to Covers Consensus, while BetMGM books are reporting 61% of bets and 59% of handle on the road team as well. This total is at 48.5 points.
Previous Rams at Cardinals action
3:15 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: The line for this NFC West war hasn’t moved much since settling in on a market consensus of Rams -3.5. According to BetMGM, 58% of bets and 57% of the money is backing the visitor while Covers Consensus shows 60% of picks taking the Rams. This total opened as high as 51 points but has trimmed to as low as 48.5 with 66% of the handle taking the Under as we head into the weekend.
10:00 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Rams opened as high as -5.5, and money on Arizona came in instantly, dropping this spread to as low as L.A. -3.5 at some sharper online books. Los Angeles is out there between -3.5 and -4.5 as of Sunday evening. This Over/Under opened at 51 points and is down to 50 at some markets.
Seahawks -2.5, 41 O/U
Why the line moved
9:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: After an early move from Seattle -2 to -1 this week, the Seahawks are sitting as a soft 1-point favorite with books like PointsBet at Seattle -0.5 and online shops at a pick’em. According to BetMGM, action has been pretty split on this matchup with 55% of bets and 53% of the money backing the visiting Falcons. The total is sitting as low as 41.5 points on Sunday morning.
Previous Falcons at Seahawks action
9:15 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, SEPT 22: Action is starting to side with Atlanta, bumping the Falcons from +2 to +1 – and even pushing this one to a pick’em at some books. PointsBet is reporting 64% of bets and 77% of money flying with the visiting Falcons while Covers Consensus shows 53% of picks backing Atlanta in Week 3.
10:15 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Seahawks opened as 2.5-point home favorites and early play is on the Falcons, knocking that spread to as low as -1 on Sunday night. This total hit the board at 41 points and is now up to 42.5 across the industry.
Buccaneers -3, Over/Under 43.5
Why the line moved
9:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: This game has dropped from Tampa Bay -3 to as low as pick’em this week, with injuries still a big issue for the Bucs offense. As of Sunday morning, the market has come back a bit on the Buccaneers, who are as big as -1.5 chalk in Week 3. Those missing pieces and line movement has scared away bettors from the Bucs, according to BetMGM, which shows 67% of bets and 72% of handle on the home side. This total — which had a look-ahead number of 52.5 points in the summer — has sunk as low as 41.5 points on Sunday morning.
Previous Packers at Buccaneers action
3:15 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23: Action continues to come in on the Packers, pushing this spread from +3 to as far as a pick’em at some respected offshore markets. There are still a few places dealing Green Bay +1.5 as of Friday afternoon. BetMGM books are reporting 62% of bets and 59% of money on the host Buccaneers while Covers Consensus shows 60% of pick taking Tom Brady and a busted-up Tampa Bay offense. This total, which was as high as 52.5 points on lookahead lines in the summer, is now sitting as low as 41.5 points.
8:50 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: With the Bucs still banged up and without WR Mike Evans (suspension), this spread has slid from Tampa Bay -3 to as low as -1 at some respected online operators. However, there are some books still dealing Packers +2.5. This total, which had a lookahead number of 52.5 points in the summer, has shrunk to as low as 41 points. DraftKings sportsbooks reporting 67% of bets on the Over but 59% of money backing the Under in Week 3.
1:49 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: The NFL announced Monday afternoon that Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans will be suspended for this Week 3 contest against the Packers. There were some adjustments to the betting numbers as the pointspread moved from Bucs -3 to -2.5 and the total dropped from 43/43.5 down to 41.
10:15 A.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: Following the Packers' win over Chicago on Sunday night, this official opener hit the board at Tampa Bay -3 – where it sat on the look-ahead line all summer. The total, however, has seen a massive adjustment. This Over/Under number was originally as high as 52.5 points on the look-ahead markets and has sunk as low as 43.5 points as of Monday morning. The Buccaneers offense is struggling through the opening two games — ranked out just 26th in EPA per play — while the Packers defense flexed its muscles in Week 2.
Broncos -2.5, 43.5 O/U
Why the line moved
9:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT. 25: After a notable move early in the week, which bumped the Broncos from -2.5 to +1.5, this spread has stayed put for the most part. However, as of Sunday morning, Denver is down to +1 at some respected online shops. Covers Consensus is showing 62% of picks on San Francisco and BetMGM books are reporting 74% of bets and 77% of money taking the 49ers. This total is sitting as high as 44.5 after opening at 43 points.
Previous 49ers at Broncos action
12:50 P.M. ET, SATURDAY, SEPT. 24: Francisco star TE George Kittle was confirmed to make his 2022 debut on Sunday Night Football this week. That's good news for the 76% of BetMGM bettors that were on the 49ers +1.5 as of Friday morning, accounting for 78% of the spread money. The Over/Under splits are a little different, with just 37% of the tickets on O44.5 — but 60% of the handle is in that direction.
9:00 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21: This spread quickly jumped the fence from Broncos -2.5 to +1.5 in the first two days of action. DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting 75% of bets and 87% of the money on the visiting 49ers. This total has also jumped, opening as low as 43.5 points and is now as high as 45.5 points at some books.
1:54 P.M. ET, MONDAY, SEPT 19: Money continues to pile in on Jimmy G and the San Francisco 49ers and books were forced to push the point spread for this game over the fence to Niners -1. The total also bumped up slightly from 43/43.5 to 45.
10:15 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, SEPT 18: The Broncos opened at -2.5 and money quickly came in on San Francisco and took this spread to -1 at some sharper online markets. Denver barely got past Houston at home in Week 2 after losing at Seattle in Week 1. The 49ers lost QB Trey Lance but have a capable backup in former starter Jimmy Garoppolo, so the difference in spread value is minimal. The total opened at 43.5 points and has come down to 43 points at some shops.
